Mob Psycho 100 had dropped another major tease that something big is coming our way to help celebrated the titular Mob’s birthday! Much like ONE’s other successful webcomic turned anime series, One-Punch Man, Mob Psycho 100 remains one of the most popular action anime franchises released in the last few years. The second season of the series wrapped up its run a few years ago, but it wasn’t until last Fall that the anime had actually confirmed it was planning to return for a third season. News on this season has been light, but that could be changing very soon.
The official Twitter account for Mob Psycho 100 previously teased fans with something potentially coming on May 12th, Mob’s birthday, but their latest update now makes it concrete that something is certainly on the way. Telling fans to keep an eye out on the Twitter account on May 12th, it’s yet to be revealed as to whether or not this will be related to the upcoming third season, but it’s certainly an intriguing tease for what could possibly be coming our way. Check out the newest tease below:

Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 will be overseen by a new director, Takahiro Hasui (Bungo Stray Dogs), for studio Bones. It will feature a returning staff and cast, however, with Hiroshi Seko returning to handle series composition, Yoshimichi Kameda returns as character designer, Kazuhiro Wakabayashi returns as sound director, and Kenji Kawai returns to compose the music.

They tease the series as such, “Kageyama Shigeo, a.k.a. “Mob,” is a boy who has trouble expressing himself, but who happens to be a powerful esper. Mob is determined to live a normal life and keeps his ESP suppressed, but when his emotions surge to a level of 100%, something terrible happens to him! As he’s surrounded by false espers, evil spirits, and mysterious organizations, what will Mob think? What choices will he make? The anime based on the original story by ONE, the idol of the webcomic world and creator of One-Punch Man, is coming your way with animation by leading animation studio Bones!”
