Mob Psycho 100 Studio President Reveals Biggest Challenge of The Anime

Mob Psycho 100 will return this October, giving fans the third season of the anime adaptation from Studio BONES. Recently, at this year's Crunchyroll Expo, some of the biggest names at BONES participated in a panel to talk about the past, present, and future of the studio while also explaining some of the most difficult aspects of brigning to life one of the biggest stories of creator ONE. With BONES also bringing back My Hero Academia for its sixth season this fall, the studio has a bright albeit busy future.     

President Masahiko Minami addressed some of the biggest challenges that came with bringing Mob to life, as the popular anime adaptation prepares for the arrival of its third season:

"When asked what the most challenging aspect there is to animating Mob Psycho 100, Minami says the webcomic's creator has amazing world-building skills. However, in animation, that can be tricky as you deal with environments. Minami wanted to treat it well and accurately. In most anime series, even at Bones, there is a hybrid structure when it comes to adding CGI and hand-drawn work. However, MP100 is entirely done by hand. However, Minami says it is incredibly hard to do all hand-drawn work because it is such a struggle. It is in its own work when it comes to effort."

The third season of Mob Psycho 100 will arrive on October 5th, meaning it will only be a few more weeks until fans are once again able to return to the world of the psychic high schooler.

If you haven't had the opportunity to dive into the hilarious and horrifying adventures of Mob as he fights against supernatural threats, you can catch seasons one and two on Crunchyroll with the streaming platform offering the following official description:

"Shigeo Kageyama, 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?"
