May 12 marks Shigeo Kageyama’s birthday and although Mob Psycho 100 accounts previously teased an announcement, all we got so far was a birthday illustration. The illustration was posted by Setsuo Ito, who voices Shigeo – Mob in the anime. It is not clear who the artist behind the illustration is.
Mob Psycho fans are currently waiting for additional details about the third season of the anime, which was announced in October of 2021, after a 100-day countdown on the anime’s official Twitter account. Studio BONES is returning to animate the sequel, with Takahiro Hasui as the director. Hiroshi Seko is in charge of series composition, while Yoshimichi Kameda is once again doing character designs. Kenji Kawai is composing the music. At the time of the announcement, a special PV was revealed:
