Actor Tatsuomi Hamada is leaping from one beloved super-powered franchise to another, as he bids farewell to his starring role as giant monster-fighter Ultraman Geed and slips into the maddening role of high school psychic Mob in the live-action Mob Psycho 100.

As the Ultraman Geed television series soars closer to its final episode, its young star Tatsuomi Hamada has already found his next big gig in the new Mob Psycho 100.

It may come as no surprise that Hamada was chosen for the part, considering both Geed and Mob Psycho share the same series director in Koichi Sakamoto, whose street cred stretches far and wide in the live-action special effects genre, from Power Rangers and Super Sentai to ...
