TV Tokyo and Netlix announced that ONE’s Mob Psyco 100 manga will be getting a live action drama adaption that will premiere in January. TV Tokyo and Netflix are collaborating on this exclusive project. Tatsuomi Hamada will be starring as the main protagonist Shigeo Kageyama (also known as Mob).
This is an awesome and rare opportunity for TV Tokyo to build a great business relationship between Netlix. I hope this adaption is a faithful one and maybe we might see One Punch Man live action drama in the near future too.
The anime adaptation of ONE‘s original manga premiered in Japan in July 2016 and Crunchyrollstreamed the series with English subtitles as it aired in Japan. Funimation streamed an English dub for the anime last December.
Funimation describes the story:
Kageyama Shigeo (a.k.a. Mob) is an 8th grader with powerful psychic abilities. Workingunder his not-so-capable master, Reigen, Mob uses his powers to exorcise evil spirits. But his will to be normal causes him to suppress his powers and feelings until he hits 100 percent — a point where his pent-up emotions are unleased and a darker power takes over.
