Crunchyroll announced that a Mob Psycho 100 II OVA episode will be premiering at Crunchyroll Expo 2019. The new anime episode will also begin streaming worldwide several days after its premiere.
Titled Mob Psycho 100 II: The First Spirits and Such Company Trip ~A Journey that Mends the Heart and Heals the Soul~, the second OVA episode is a completely new story created by Mob Psycho 100 manga creator ONE.
Director Yuzuru Tachikawa is returning to direct the new anime episode at Studio BONES.
Here is the story synopsis/summary for the OVA episode.
“Mob, Reigen, Dimple, and the newest member of the Spirits and Such Consultation Office staff, Serizawa, take a trip up to a secluded hot spring called Ibogami Hot Springs in Zebra Prefecture. Reigen happened to get a request from the matron there to discover the truth behind the strange rumors going around there and save the inn. Ritsu and Teru also join in on this trip and the six of them head out on this super relaxing trip to the hot spring. But on their way there, Reigen and Serizawa start nodding off on the train and somehow get sucked into an eerie parallel world…”
Directly following the premiere, anime fans can attend a panel on the anime series with special guests Yoshimichi Kameda (anime character designer), Yuzuru Tachikawa (animation studio BONES director), and Setsuo Ito (voice actor for titular character Mob).
