Mob Psycho 100 Cliffhanger Reveals Anime’s Biggest Death

Mob Psycho 100 is live with its new season, and of course, all eyes are on Shigeo. Season three challenged our young esper in all new ways, and his most recent fight damaged him deeply. After all, Dimple has once again put himself at odds with Shigeo, and this week’s latest episode put an end to their feud. But at the last moment, episode six pushed a cliffhanger that confirms the show’s biggest death yet.

So you have been warned! There are major spoilers for Mob Psycho 100 below. Read with caution:

At the end of episode six, Mob Psycho 100 makes it clear that Dimple’s decision to merge with the God Tree will have lasting effects. The mind fight with Shigeo reminds Dimple of all the great lessons he learned while working with the boy. So when Dimple has been defeated, he doesn’t try to sacrifice others to escape his fate. Dimple uses his last power to manipulate Shigeo into escaping, and the spirit is quickly sacrificed to the God Tree once his human is safe.

What does this mean for Dimple?

At the end of the episode, fans are heartbroken as Shigeo accepts Dimple’s choice. The young boy is seen crying in his bed as Shigeo thanks his friend for saving his life. As it stands, Dimple has been consumed by the God Tree, so the spirit we’ve come to know is gone. So of course anime fans are looking to the manga for answers.

If you’ve read Mob Psycho 100, you’ll know how long this character’s release lasts. The truth is, Dimple ends up returning to the show before it ends. A later arc returns Dimple to his usual state, but it comes at a time when Shigeo’s identity is in crisis. It will also be a hot minute before the TV anime arrives when Dimple returns. So for now, Shigeo and Reigen will move forward with their spiritual companion at hand.
