And the anime’s announcement PV:
Mob Psycho 100 is a comedic action web manga written and illustrated by ONE. The series began in early 2012 being published in Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday Web Comics. To date a total of 12 volumes have been published, with the 12th volume being released in June. ONE is also well known for his One Punch-Man manga, which recently was adapted into a TV anime.
Here is the series synopsis from MAL:
Kageyama Shigeo (a.k.a. “Mob”) is a 8th grader with psychic abilities. He could bend spoons and lift objects with his mind from a young age, but he slowly began to withhold from using his abilities in public due to the negative attention he kept receiving. Now, the only thing he wants is to become friends with a girl in his class, Tsubomi. With his psychic “mentor” (who has no psychic powers), he continues his daily life, attempting to realize his purpose in life.
A TV anime adaptation of Mob Psycho 100 will air on Tuesday, July 12th at 12:00am JST on Tokyo MX, during the Summer 2016 anime season. Further information about the series will be revealed in the upcoming weeks.
