Being the end of the Fall 2022 slate, it is now time that we see the beginning of the most beautiful year for anime. But before that, many debates have spurred over releases and renewals. And the biggest name in this is Mob Psycho 100 Season 4. The final episode of the third season came out on December 21, 2022. And since then, the makers have taken goodbye to the fans. So, will there be a new season? Here is all you need to know about its renewal updates.
The following section talks about the renewal status, availability of source material, chances of a movie, and the final release date of the next season. Although there are slim chances, there is a silver lining in this entire story.
Mob Psycho 100 Season 4: Manga Compared To Anime
Starting in the year 2012, Mob Psycho 100 manga released a total of 16 volumes in five years. ONE forged 101 chapters in total. And from comparison, in the final episodes of the third season, the anime ended up using all the chapters of the source material. Thus, it is confirmed that there is no more ONE-content left for a new season to come. Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 is also a complete story on its own.
But there is still hope for the fans. In March 2018, ONE released a spin-off story. Titled ‘Reigen The Man With a MAX Spirituality Level of 131,’ the story takes place between the events of chapters 100 and 101. Keep reading further to know about the chances of its anime adaptation.
What Are The Chances?
There is no doubt with the fact that the first three seasons have earned massive profits for the production company. In addition to this, the same had been seen in the official numbers and ranks of the latest season. Not only did the latest season top all the Fall 2022 charts, but it also ate away the limelight of many shows. Almost all episodes of the season have been rated above 8 stars on IMDb.
The overall IMDb rating is 8.4 stars out of ten. And the MyAnimeList star rating is 8.5 stars out of ten. Thus, Studio Bones will not back away from profiting from a new season. Even the fans would love to catch a glimpse of the new season. But the one blockage is the available source material that has been exhausted.
Mob Psycho 100 Reigen Adaptation Possibility?
Not to be confused with “Reigen The Miraculous Psychic” OVA, this is a special manga that came out in the year 2018. The spin-off story is the only piece of content left for the studio to adapt. Although there have been many stories in the past that have been extended beyond original source material. ONE is considered one of the greatest writers and manga artists in the world. One Punch Man and Mob Psycho 100 are very celebrated texts.
Thus, for Studio Bones to get new writers in place of ONE only for the sake of a new season is not the right decision. Fans of ONE’s storytelling might also not accept the end product. Thus, ‘Reigen’ as Mob Psycho 100 Season 4 is the only feasible option for Bones for the right kind of profits.
The last few episodes went on the finish the entire story of Mob Psycho 100. The tale told by ONE has officially ended with “Confession.” Mob’s meeting with Tsubomi was not as successful at all. And he also had his discussion with Reigen also told a lot about the new understanding demeanor of Mob. At last, the boy had finally become the Vice President of the Body Improvement Club. Beyond this, author ONE has not followed any story for Mob and his friends.
But as for Reigen, there is an entire volume dedicated to this character. Titled “The Man With Level 131 Max Power!” this manga tells the story of a world that is haunted and lost by forces beyond their understanding. No psychic or man with power has the strength to deal with these troubles. But now is not the condition to act on this.
However, Reigen Arataka, the ghostbusting hero, will continue to act as the savior of all. This time, he does not have the magically powerful intern. Instead, he has to deal with a boss called Tome. Thus, the idea of belief and self-confidence play in the themes of this tale.
Mob Psycho 100 Season 4: Release Date
There was a gap of three years between the second and the third season. And now that Studio Bones is in a lack of content for the new season, there might be a long time between the next two. So, there is no official final release date for Mob Psycho 100 Season 4. Even if new content is being forged, it might take more than a year for scripting and animation. Thus, no new season is coming out before 2024.
