I really don't know if it's possible to make Mob Psycho good as a live action with it being so unrealistic. Once again I have low expectations for a live action adaptation.

I can just imagine the thought process behind this. Hey guys, we all love Mob Psycho. It has unique animation and really stands out. How do we make it less unique? Oh I know, we should make it a live action where it would never work. Sounds like a plan to me.

Mob could be good.There are some great live action tv dramas based on manga some passable a lot not so good..
The tv dramas work better than movie adaptations.
Some of my favourites.
Jin time traveling doctor.
boys over flowers
Bloody monday
Floating classroom
GTO great teacher onizuka.
Arikawa under the bridge good
Samurai Sensei
Drifting net café was better than the manga

Attack on Titan was awful.
Gantz was passable
relife was soso
Live adaptions are hit and miss.
But if its a choice of being made or not made Id like to see it made even if its bad.

Koreans have made a number of manwhas.
They only make live action adaptaions.
Full house
Cheese in the trap
I haven't seen any animated versions.

As for Chinese and wuxia adaptations. I only know of a few animated series.
Someone of more knowledge would have to tell me.

Movie adaptations suck. They could work if they try.
At least ghost in the shell tried,
Tv adaptations tend to work.
Not fantastic not terrible.

So mob psycho ill hold my verdict till its released

Wasn't there supposed to be an announcement from Studio Bones on October 19? I'm holding out hope that it's going to be about S2... (hopefully I got that date right)

Oh man, the portrayal of Mob is gonna be awful. If Netflix had full rights to it, it'd just be whitewashed trash but since Japan is handling it, I wouldn't be surprise to see them turn Mob into some super bishounen try-hard emo kid.

To be completely honest, I look forward to anything Mob Psycho 100 related that comes out. I do eagerly await a season 2 since the web comic gets into some serious drama, but for now a short live action series will do.

I get that Mob Psycho is the most grounded of ONE's works (with the exception of Dangan Tenshi Fanclub) but it just won't work in live action. It's too fuckin weird.

If this is the way to raise the budget for Season 02, then I am all in.

Else, fuck this shit.

It's not popular, that's the thing.

Death Note had a Jew and a Black as main characters though.

When I kept asking for more MP100 I meant a S2.

Granted if this boosts popularity or whatever the fuck to get a S2 then I don't care.

Good for the popularity of mp100 but I feel like a live action adaptation won't work for this kind of flashy source material.
