The announcement of the Mob Psycho 100 Season 2 release date may be coming very soon. Back in August, Bones briefly discussed their plans for a new MP100 anime project when director Masahiro Ando and producer Masahiko Minami said a “new Mob Psycho 100 project is moving forward.” Now, reports from the Bones panel Machi Asobi anime event in Japan are saying there will be “new information” on the manga cover of ONE’s Mob Psycho 100 Volume 15.
Update: A new MP100 anime has indeed been announced! See the new article for details.
During the panel, the staff of Bones gave updates on what its various studios are working on at this time. Studio B of Bones worked on the first Mob Psycho 100 anime and they are currently in charge of the Blood Blockade Battlefront & Beyond anime. Sakugabooru writer liborek, who calls himself “the greatest Studio Bones expert outside of Japan,” reported that new information is forthcoming but it’s uncertain whether they will announce the second season of MP100.
“Mob Psycho 100‘s 15th volume is getting released on October 19 and the cover will feature some sort of ‘new information,'” liborek reported on his Twitter page.
Bones also revealed that a new original title is in the works for the spring of 2018. They plan on announcing the title during December of 2017.
“Official report of the panel doesn’t mention the stuff regarding new original anime, so take it with a grain of salt,” liborek said.
Gigazine also reported on the Bones panel. Studio A is working on the A.I.C.O. Incarnation anime for Netflix, which will have 12 episodes and be released in the spring of 2018 worldwide. Studio C is working hard on releasing My Hero Academia Season 3 in 2018. Studio D is producing a new anime movie called Bungo Stray Dogs: Dead Apple that will open in Japan the early spring of 2018. Studio E continues to work on the film trilogy for the Eureka Seven: Hi – Evolution anime series.

Since studio Bones’ schedule seems to be pretty packed, fans might wonder what that might mean for the Mob Psycho 100 Season 2 release date. Back in August, liborek pointed out that “if more Mob is happening it’s still very far away, anyway.” In 2016, Bones president Masahiko Minami spoke about how the anime industry was in an economic boom, which meant studios were “throwing out more money,” but there’s a limit to the number of popular anime they can produce.
“There’s only a set number of shows we can work on at one time,” Minami said. “So even if there’s an anime bubble and there are like two gazillion shows out there, you only have that certain many from us.”
