Mob Psycho 100: Season 3 is released in Japan on January 12. Mob Psycho 100 season 2 received a very long hiatus of 1 year and 4 months, so we can expect Mob Pyscho 100 Season 3 to release sometime between October 2017 to September 2018. Mob Psycho 100: Season 3 Plot Mob Psycho will pick up from the last episode of Mob Psycho’s first season in the end when Mob has returned back home to continue his life as an ordinary human being without any powers unlike Reigen who holds mysterious psychic abilities yet appears carefree about it all. Mob also witnesses Teruki Hanazawa getting arrested for being a black market middleman in Episode 13. The plot of Mob Psycho 100: Season 3 will depict how Mob goes through several changes after he is in conflict with his own emotions and sense of purpose and how Mob interacts with others in his environment.
The Plot of Mob Psycho 100: Season 3
will start with Mob and Reigen Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 will be broken into 2 arcs, the first arc in Mob Psycho 100 : Season 3 will be about Mob Psycho 100 fans’ favorite psychic Mob facing his identity crisis over the fact that he is a psychic. The second arc in Mob Psycho 100: Season 3 will focus on Mob’s difficult path as an exorcist to gain control over his powers especially Ritsu Kageyama.
The Theme of Mob Psycho 100: Season 3
Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 will follow Mob’s storyline in Mob Psycho 100: Mob vs. Ritsu Kageyama arc and Mob Psycho 100: Mob vs. Teruki Hanazawa arc as Mob tries to understand his nature as a psychic medium while also being a low-class exorcist. The theme of Mob Psycho 100: Season 3 is understanding what makes you who you are and being proud of yourself, whether you’re psychic or not.
When Mob first met Ritsu, he was the only reason Mob didn’t want to run away from the Claw organization, but after his intense fight with Ritsu and constant bullying by Teruki Hanazawa, Mob lost faith in himself. His friendship with Ritsu makes him feel like he doesn’t want Mob to be a part of the Claw organization, Mob decides to leave and when he tries to tell his friends about it, they don’t listen. The mob is pushed over the edge by Teruki’s bullying so Mob decides to take matters into his own hands and bring Teruki down. Mob used a power that made him finally understand what being psychic means and what makes you who you are.
The theme is about Mob trying to understand what makes him who he is, or rather, what he should do now that he’s understood that there are things within him that he can’t control. The mob was Mob whether he had the potential or not, and Mob is Mob no matter what becomes of him. The mob’s always Mob.
The first half of this theme is about Mob learning to accept his desire to be praised by others without letting it get in the way of his goals, which was a sort of “be true to yourself” message which I really liked.
A very notable scene is when Teruki asked Mob why he didn’t use his power on him (to free himself from the car) because nobody seems to understand how much work it takes for Mob to restrain himself like that. Mob replied with words that really struck me: What are you guys even doing here? I’m a psychic.
Other Updates For Mob Psycho 100: Season 3
However, Mob Psycho 100: Season 3 flips everything and turns Mob into a complete bad with just his default powers. Mob Psycho 100 takes Mob from an overpowered psychic to an actual character you can root for thanks to some twists in episode 9. The supporting characters like Reigen make Mob’s fight even better too, as the master swindler doubts himself and Mob’s ability to beat Claw after the latter smashes Mob through a wall like it was made of paper. Mob has plenty of opponents who look down on him, but this isn’t your stereotypical shonen where every opponent is stronger than Mob or beats them the same way Mob beats everyone else.
Mob Psycho 100 refuses to make Mob a Gary Stu and gives him plenty of opponents who are just different enough from Mob that they can beat Mob in their own unique ways instead of with the same repeat tactic over and over. Mob’s power will never get old, so Mob’s opponents have to outsmart Mob or overpower Mob with an equal and opposite force. And even then, there is still no guarantee that Mob won’t win by sheer luck or someone else interfering on his behalf like Reigen doing it again in episode 9.
