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
GTO great teacher onizuka.
Arikawa under the bridge good
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.
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

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.

Never understood the popularity of Live Action in nippon, never will.
It's not popular, that's the thing.

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