What date and time will Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 Episode 5 ‘God Tree (2) – Peace’ be released for simulcast streaming on Crunchyroll?
Things are happening in Seasoning City and after four amazing anime episodes, neither the Mob nor the audience have a clue what it is. The nature of Mob Psycho 100’s surreal storytelling is arguably one of the show’s best features, with episode 4 starting to feel like a horror show when Mob notices how everyone around him is acting strange… or alien, at least.
Poor Teruki finds out exactly why that is first hand, after eating cookies with the divine wood powder. This “secret ingredient” actually has a nasty side effect; so as fans count down to the final broadcast, we share what date and time Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 Episode 5 will be released worldwide.

Preview text for story shared online
Season 3 episode 5 of the Mob Psycho 100 anime series is set to be titled ‘God Tree (2) – Peace’ and the official story preview is as follows:
“Teruki stands in front of the mob as they enter the sacred tree. The mob is forced to silence Tell, who has been completely brainwashed and has become a psychohelmet pawn. Finally, the psycho helmet appears in front of Mob, and it’s none other than Ekubo (Dimple).
With the power of the divine tree within him, Ekubo takes on Mobu. In a heated battle, Ekubo’s full throttle captures the Mob. Seeing his school uniform torn to shreds, Ekubo shouts a shocking word!” – Season 3 episode 5 Story, via official website.
Revisit one of the earliest interviews
When an anime series has been releasing new content for a number of years like Mob Psycho 100, it can be quite interesting to revisit some of the earliest interviews with the production team.
In a 2016 interview with Crunchyroll, mangaka ONE and director Yuzuru Tachikawa opened up about their expectations and concerns about the Mob Psycho 100 anime before its premiere.
“When manga is adapted, one of the biggest hang-ups among fans is the atmosphere – or more precisely, how much of it is lost in the transition to animation. A problem we had to solve with Mob Psycho 100 adaptation was whether we wanted to make Mob more handsome or go against the prevailing trend and keep him clean.” – Yuzuru Tachikawa, via Crunchyroll.
The director would then share how he wanted to “make sure I preserve the strange, inexplicable atmosphere of the original.” He added, “I love the way ONE uses panels and layouts its pages, but the way customization looks in that regard has to be different.”
“I have spent a lot of time thinking about how best to create a similar atmosphere. I’ve been thinking particularly hard about how to translate some of the most impactful pages into animation, and I’m testing out a bunch of ideas.” – Yuzuru Tachikawa, via Crunchyroll.
The comedy aspect of Mob Psycho 100 was also of particular importance to the team prior to the anime series’ debut. Tachikawa said that “You wouldn’t be wrong” when asked how the jokes might be harder to preserve in the anime.
“We pay very close attention to pacing and character interaction. But even then, what’s funny varies from person to person, so I can’t really say if the audience is going to find our versions of the jokes very funny. All I have to work with are reactions to the voice actors’ performances.” – Yuzuru Tachikawa, via Crunchyroll.
EN will then tell how: “I was there for episode one’s recording session and I laughed pretty hard at the jokes. I actually think the material is much more fun with voices. Especially with Sakurai Takahiro’s performance as Reigen – it’s interesting how well he fits the material.”
“Each actor brings a bit of pizzazz to their character. Combined with the weird surreal humor, their performances have had me laughing quite a bit. I hope the audience finds it funny too.” – Yuzuru Tachikawa, via Crunchyroll.
