Mob Psycho 100 news!
So we got some great Mob Psycho 100 news this week. On Sunday, Crunchyroll is going to be streaming the Mob Psycho 100 Reigen anime! This is great news for any Mob Psycho 100 fan. Nothing beats more Reigen. This will just be a summary episode of Mob Psycho 100 which features commentary from Reigen Arataka. Still sounds like a great time!
That’s not all!
This week, we also got word that there is going to be a Mob Psycho 100 second season! Studio Bones, the studio behind season one will be returning to produce this season as well. Yuzuru Tachikawa, the series’ director, and the rest of the staff at BONES will return.
Akira now streaming on Crunchyroll and Crunchyroll Movie Night adds Bungo Stray Dogs: Dead Apple!
This is something really cool in my opinion. Some people may not know this but I’ve never watched Akira before. I just bought Akira for Bluray and then this happened so I’m just happy that more anime movies are easier to watch legally. More legal anime is more accessible. Big win.
Also, Crunchyroll added another anime film. One that was airing in Japan not too long ago, Bungo Stray Dogs: Dead Apple. I’m a big fan of this series and super excited to go out and watch it. If you are in the New York Area and planning to go, let me know so we can hang out! Otherwise, check the list of states to see if there are any showings around you!
All I got for now! I will be at Anime Boston with @rokutsu so we will keep an eye out for any news there and keep you in the loop. This is more or so a test run to see if a news portion is doable. I think it’s good to have a weekly news roundup for someone like me who is pretty busy and needs a quick rundown of key points.
What are you most excited about? Anything new next season you can’t wait for? Let me know if the comments below! Thank you for taking the time to read this and have a wonderful weekend!
