New Mob Psycho 100 OVA Wows Fans at U.S. World Premiere

Mob Psycho 100's second season may have ended but that doesn't mean we've seen the last of Mob and his psychic buddies, as an upcoming OVA titled Mob Psycho 100 II: The First Spirits and Such Company Trip ~A Journey that Mends the Heart and Heals the Soul~ brings us back to the popular world. After having debuted at the recent Crunchyroll Expo, fans in attendance at the premiere have given the special a resounding thumbs up! Anime News Network broke down the premiere and panel that was attended by the cast, director, and producers of the OVA itself.

Anime News Network shared a detailed write-up on their Official Twitter Account documenting what was discussed, secrets shared, and how the audience received the 25 minute special animation that revisits the world of Mob Psycho 100, prior to any season three announcements:

Mob Psycho 100 was created by ONE, the man who was responsible for unleashing Saitama and the franchise of One-Punch Man upon the world, in 2012. Much like Saitama, Mob and his friends have managed to find their footing in the anime world, gaining just as much notoriety as its "cousin series" focusing on the world of super heroes.
