Mob Psycho 100’s lead voice actor is likely getting replaced — and it’s all because of company politics.
Kyle McCarley, the voice of Shigeo “Mob” Kageyama in the dubbed version of Mob Psycho 100, probably won’t be returning for the anime’s third season. McCarley posted a video on YouTube, claiming the Sony-owned anime streamer Crunchyroll refused to work with him on a Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) union contract.
According to Kotaku, Crunchyroll confirmed that it will “need to recast some roles,” but doesn’t explicitly mention McCarley or who will play Mob. Needless to say, McCarley’s potential departure is disappointing, especially since his voice fits the role of Mob so well.
