But he soon finds himself a topic of interest to religious groups and strange organizations. Will Mob be able to get the peaceful life he desires?
Staffs for the first season, including director Yuzuru Tachikawa, scriptwriter Hiroshi Seko, and character designer Yoshimichi Kameda, returned to work on the upcoming season, which will be produced by anime studio BONES.
The Japanese voice cast for the previous season, including Setsuo Ito (as Shigeo “Mob” Kageyama) and Takahiro Sakurai (as Arataka Reigen), also returned to portray their respective roles.
