Mob Psycho Spin-off Adaptation chances?

ONE-sensei has written a spin-off manga series, which comprises of seven chapters. The spin-off series is named “Mob Psycho 100: Reigen” and tells us the separate story of Reigen Arataka and the company he runs. Considering the massive popularity of Mob Psycho 100 and the loyalty of BONES studio to its franchises, there is a big chance that this spin-off might get an anime adaptation in the future.

Because there are only 7 chapters which is not enough source material for anime season, the potential adaptation might be a movie or an OVA series. Recently, there has been a trend of anime movies like Spy x Family recently announced an original anime movie, so there is a bleak chance for a Mob Psycho 100 movie announcement. Still, there has been no official announcement from the production committee yet.

Mob Psycho 100 Overview

Shigeo Kageyama, often called by his friends “Mob“, is a teenage boy who has psychic abilities that he is trying to avoid using in his daily life. This is because his childhood friend, Tsubomi, didn’t like him using it so much when they were little.

Avoiding the use of his power, Mob’s emotions start to bundle up and burst at one time when they reach 100%. And sometimes, when his feelings are too pent-up, he transforms into a “???? form”, which is the pure power he is trying to hide and wreaks havoc everywhere.

In Season 2, Mob has matured and can now control his emotions more efficiently. He faced the CLAW organization, which consisted of espers who used their powers for world domination. Mob met the leader of CLAW, Suzuki Toichirou, at the end of this season and showed him a better path in life.
