Hello members of Psycho Helmet~ The final episode of Mob Psycho 100 is coming out in English next week. Many of us have been following the episodes together and it seems like for the most part, everyone is enjoying it which is AWESOME!
I hope there are many others like me who are looking forward to a BD/DVD release as well as a television airing! However, it seems like for this to happen it’s going to require a bit of help from us fans.
Funimation’s dubbing it, so it’s gotta happen, right?
Since Mob Psycho 100’s dub was first announced, there has hardly been any promotion regarding the series. News regarding the dub were released a few days before the planned air date. Remember when on launch date there was a delay? That upset a lot of fans, yet Funimation said nothing over Twitter. Funimation’s official website doesn’t even have a forum for Mob Psycho 100 discussion. The season finale airs next week yet Funimation has said nothing about it on their website nor Twitter. It is possible that Funimation is putting the series on the backburner which explains the lack of promotion. At this rate, the prospects of a DVD release of television air might be in danger.
Just support the original Japanese market and it’s taken care of.
A lot of times they’re not interested in markets outside of Japan. Sure, a series has to do well in the Japanese market for a season 2 to be considered, but we need to show there is a worldwide fanbase for Mob Psycho 100 to ultimately show the Japanese market that Mob Psycho 100 is a series worth investing time and money into for merchandise and other goods.
What can we do?
It’s continuously stressed to NOT stream the series off Kissanime, Gogoanime, etc. It hurts the industry and hurts the smaller groups working to bring the Mob Psycho 100 series overseas even moreso. We hear it all the time, but watching Mob Psycho 100 off Funimation and/or Crunchyroll gives these company the numbers they need to see that people want more Mob Psycho!!
Unfortunately, Funimation subscriptions are only available to those within the US and Canada.
Tweet/send comments/suggestions to Funimation, Toonami, all the bigwigs that are providing the services. Instead of asking “Will Toonami be airing Mob Psycho 100?” or “Will the DVD be coming out?”, hound them and ask when! There was a Twitter poll (click) from the guy who manages Toonami awhile back for a short series to be aired, but nothing more has been said about it since. Mob Psycho 100 won, so let’s ask when that’s happening!
I don’t want to pay.
Numbers count, so just signing up for a Funimation subscription and watching Mob Psycho 100 shows them what users are coming for. There is a free 2 week trial for using Funimation’s services (but you will need to keep track of when that ends and your credit card). Mob Psycho 100 can be streamed for free with ads on Crunchyroll if you don’t have a subscription.
While the dub is airing this is the perfect time for fans to be really passionate! We need to ask for what we want. We don’t want to wait 2 years before Mob Psycho 100 hits DVDs and our home TV 5 years from now! Strike while the iron is hot!
