Official accounts for Mob Psycho 100 have released a teaser trailer for season 3 of the TV anime (Full title: Mob Psycho 100 III). The show is scheduled to air in October 2022.
The big reveal was done today, May 12, which is also main character Shigeo "Mob" Kageyama's (CV: Setsuo Itō) birthday.
Mob Psycho 100 (Japanese: モブサイコ100) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by ONE. It was serialized on Shogakukan's Ura Sunday website from April 2012 to December 2017. Shogakukan has also compiled its chapters into 16 tankōbon volumes.
The story stars Shigeo Kageyama (CV: Setsuo Itō), an average middle school boy who has been nicknamed "Mob" (which is Japanese slang for "background character") for his lack of presence. But he is actually a powerful esper with immense psychic powers. He maintains strict control over his emotions to prevent his powers from going haywire.
The TV anime adaptation by Bones has spanned two seasons with season 1 airing from July to September 2016, and season 2 airing from January to April 2019. Now, season 3 is officially airing this October 2022.
Synopsis (Season 1)
Eighth-grader Shigeo "Mob" Kageyama has tapped into his inner wellspring of psychic prowess at a young age. But the power quickly proves to be a liability when he realizes the potential danger in his skills. Choosing to suppress his power, Mob's only present use for his ability is to impress his longtime crush, Tsubomi, who soon grows bored of the same tricks.
In order to effectuate control on his skills, Mob enlists himself under the wing of Arataka Reigen, a con artist claiming to be a psychic, who exploits Mob's powers for pocket change. Now, exorcising evil spirits on command has become a part of Mob's daily, monotonous life. However, the psychic energy he exerts is barely the tip of the iceberg; if his vast potential and unrestrained emotions run berserk, a cataclysmic event that would render him completely unrecognizable will be triggered. The progression toward Mob's explosion is rising and attempting to stop it is futile. (from MyAnimeList)
