Mob Psycho 100 Lead Voice Actor Setsuo Ito Heads to Anime NYC


Another guest of honor has been announced for this year’s Anime NYC, and this time it’s the lead voice actor for the Mob Psycho 100 TV anime. Setsuo Ito provides the voice of Shigeo “Mob” Kageyama himself, and he’ll be on hand to celebrate the ongoing third season throughout the weekend.

Here’s what Anime NYC Show Director Peter Tatara had to say about the addition: 

“We’re honored to welcome Setsuo Ito to Anime NYC … We’re thrilled to welcome the voice of Mob himself in celebration of the Anime’s third season, and we know fans across New York and around the US will be equally excited by this rare opportunity to meet him.”

And here’s the description of the series itself: 

The Mob Psycho 100 anime is based on a Japanese comic of the same name by creator ONE, which was published from 2012 to 2017.
