The third season of the television anime adaptation of ONE’s Mob Psycho 100 manga, Mob Psycho 100 III, has a character promotional video that Warner Bros. Japan started streaming on Wednesday. Shigeo “Mob” Kageyama is featured in the video clips from the anime’s first two seasons:
The anime will make its Japanese television debut on October 5 on Tokyo MX, BS Fuji, and on October 7 on Cartoon Network.
Aside from Asia, Crunchyroll will broadcast the anime in its original Japanese with English subtitles and dub when it airs in Japan. The initial two episodes were shown last month at Crunchyroll Expo.
The third season of the anime will have a new cast, according to Crunchyroll. In order to “achieve this effortlessly per our production and casting criteria, we will need to recast some characters,” according to a Crunchyroll spokesman, the decision was taken to record the simuldub for Mob Psycho 100 III at the company’s Dallas production facility. Smash Zoom! The dubs for Mob Psycho 100’s first two seasons were created by Entertainment. In the first two seasons, most of the dub actors are not Texas residents.
Because Crunchyroll has refused to meet with representatives of the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) union in order to negotiate a potential contract on upcoming productions, voice actor Kyle McCarley said in a video on Tuesday that he might not reprise his role as the anime’s protagonist Mob.
