     It is still so very surprising and exciting to me, that I haven’t been able to be calm about it yet. But I feel that something incredible is coming our way.

‘Is ESP (extra-sensory perception) necessary for life?’
  Kageyama Shigeo or ‘Mob’ is a middle school boy who has very poor abilities in self-expression but has a powerful ESP ability. Mob wants to live a normal life and therefore controls his ESP, but when he is agitated and the number of such events exceeds 100, something happens to his body. Various entities such as fake psychics, evil spirits, and mysterious organizations surround him and interact in his life. What does Mob think of all of this and what he will choose? This original work by charismatic web comic author ONE (author of ‘One punch man’), will be made into a TV animation by studio ‘Bones’, one of the best in the industry.  Broadcast is scheduled for 2016.   ‘Yes, your judgment is correct!’
