If you’re a big fan of One Punch Man, you’ll love Mob Psycho 100. It’s basically Saitama as a middle school boy with huge psychic powers. It’s no wonder pretty much everyone recommends watching this anime if you already watched One Punch Man.
But here’s the million dollar question – can you watch Mob Psycho 100 on Netflix? Or will you have to create accounts on other sites where you’ll have to deal with annoying ads?
Well, let’s start with the good news first: yes, Mob Psycho 100 is available on Netflix. But here’s the bad part: it’s not available worldwide. We used StreamCatcher from ProPrivacy (https://streamcatcher.proprivacy.com) to check which countries you can watch the anime in, and quickly got our answer: Japan and India (at least for the moment).
Why is this awesome anime only available in two places? And is there any way to unblock and watch it in other countries?
We’ll tell you everything you need to know in this article.
First Things First – How to Unblock Mob Psycho 100 Outside India and Japan
The easiest way to do that is to use a VPN. It’s an online service that spoofs your geo-location. Basically, that means Netflix won’t know what country you are from.
Some people might have told you that using VPNs is complicated, but that’s not true at all. You can actually use one to unblock and watch Mob Psycho 100 on Netflix in just four steps:
- Start off by subscribing to a VPN service.
- Next, download the appropriate VPN app for your device.
- Install the VPN app, and then use it to connect to an Indian or Japanese server.
- Log into your Netflix account, type Mob Psycho 100 in the search bar, and it should pop up instantly. Have fun watching it!
Which VPN Should You Use?
Sadly, you can’t use any VPN you want because not all of them work too well with Netflix. We did some research and ran some tests, and found that these VPNs are very well optimized for this site:
ExpressVPN always offered smooth speeds (70-100 Mbps), and we never had any trouble unblocking Netflix with this provider. They also have unlimited bandwidth, user-friendly apps, and split tunneling (meaning you can fine-tune your Netflix speeds).
The pricing is a bit steep compared to its competitors, but – on the plus side – you buy with no risk since this provider has a no-questions asked 30-day refund policy.
A pretty new VPN on the market, but one that clearly knows what it’s doing. It has tons of fast servers (90-100+ Mbps), unmetered data, and cross-platform compatible easy-to-use apps. Surfshark also offers split tunneling via a feature called Whitelister.
Just like ExpressVPN, this provider has a no-BS 30-day money-back guarantee.
A huge server network, lighting-fast speeds (80-100 Mbps), and an intuitive design. It’s safe to say you’ll have no trouble unblocking Mob Psycho 100.
And you guessed it – like the other two providers, NordVPN also has your back with a 30-day refund policy.
Here are a few common questions we saw people asking about Netflix, Mob Psycho 100, and VPNs. If you’d like to know more, just leave your questions in the comments below, and we’ll answer them as soon as we can.
Why Does Netflix Block Mob Psycho 100 in Other Countries?
Netflix doesn’t do it because they’ve got nothing better to do (like some people might claim). They have to geo-block shows like Mob Psycho 100 to comply with the licensing agreements they signed. They only bought the rights to broadcast this anime in countries like India and Japan, so they can’t legally do it anywhere else (their competitors likely bought licensing rights for other countries).
Basically, if Netflix tries to stream Mob Psycho 100 worldwide, they’ll likely end up getting sued.
Will Unblocking Mob Psycho 100 with a VPN Get You in Trouble?
No. True, Netflix’s ToS page makes it seem like they can ban your account if you use a VPN:
“You also agree not to: circumvent, remove, alter, deactivate, degrade or thwart any of the content protections in the Netflix service;”
We bolded “circumvent” to highlight which part means that using a VPN is against the rules.
But here’s the thing – nobody got banned for using a VPN (as far as we know). Netflix can catch you using one, sure, but they won’t cancel your account. Instead, the site will display the Netflix proxy error, which looks something like this:
But as long as you use a good Netflix VPN (like the ones we mentioned above or the ones StreamCatcher recommends), you should be fine. The site won’t be able to detect your VPN usage, so it won’t send you to the proxy error page.
Where Else Can You Watch Mob Psycho 100?
Besides Netflix, you can also watch this anime on Crunchyroll and VRV. But you’ll still likely need a VPN to do that. Here’s why:
- Like Netflix, Crunchyroll also geo-blocks shows and movies due to licensing agreements. There’s a chance this anime won’t be available in your country. And if it is, you’ll still have to put up with annoying ads and slow loading speeds if you don’t get a paid subscription.
- VRV is only available in the US. If you don’t live there, you’ll need to use a US VPN server to unblock it.
