For my followers who want to know here’s what’s going on in my country:
As of this Monday, 7 pm: 36 dead, one of them a pregnant 19 year-old girl and another a month old baby; 7 people are missing, 55 are injured and 15 of those are in critical state;
Over 300 fires started this weekend in our small country;
This has been declared the worst day of the year in wildfires in our country (and if you remember, in June we had the biggest tragedy in human lives due to wildfires too);
Schools have been closed down all over the county, classes cancelled, people aren’t able to go to work because many roads are closed;
It was expected rain but so far we haven’t been lucky;
It’s October 16 and yet we’ve been dealing with temperatures of over 30ºC (hopefully it’s going down soon);
It’s believed that most of those fires were started by humans and worsened by unclean forests, high temperatures, no rain and very strong winds;
46 fires are still going, 3611 people are on the field;
People are gathering in the center of their towns, escaping the fires and looking for shelter after losing everything;
20 active fires and 20 of the mortal victims are from my district so I’m currently keeping watch along with everyone in my village because a fire is closing in on us. If you could spread this I’d appreciate it. Firefighters are exhausted, we don’t have enough means to put down all these fires. If the rain doesn’t come to help we might need help from other countries so we need to spread the news;

So, I (maybe unsurprisingly) have a file dedicated to various instances when Mob’s thoughts or actions are rather dark. Which was started as evidence gathering mission to try and counterbalance the excessively saccharine treatment Mob tends to get and to recognise the interesting and multifaceted character he actually is…
Characters in the series often have difficulty recognising Mob’s opinions and emotions, and while we as an audience are well aware of his emotions, I’ve noticed people tend to overlook Mob’s actual thoughts on things if they don’t align with what people think he *should* think.
Mob is someone who does the right thing, for as many people as possible, not because he can’t comprehend bad, or doesn’t realise it’s an option, but because he is someone who actively wants to be better. And that doesn’t mean he forces himself to like or forgive everyone who wrongs him (that’s unreasonable to expect of anyone - let alone a 14-year-old kid), sometimes it just means avoiding doing them actual harm out of that dislike.
and yes, sometimes someone has to step in before Mob is pushed over his limit - thank you Reigen and Dimple at various points in the series - sometimes Mob doing nothing in a situation is the best he can manage. Because it’s better than the alternative ie: 100% murderous intent vs Mob 0% and Reigen 1000%
Mob thinks his actions through a lot in the series (although he actually vocalises those thoughts much less). And he takes the time to think through actions and consequence thoroughly
Which in the above instance freaks Reigen out, and also highlights a difference between them: Reigen says the right thing instantly because it’s the Right Thing to say, while Mob takes a… concerning amount of time to really take a look at what he would do first. And I love them both for different reasons as a result of this interaction.
Mob is conscientious and a good person. not because he lacks the ability to comprehend doing wrong, but because he thinks and works really hard to overcome those thoughts and be better.
He thinks about doing the bad stuff, and then actively works really hard to avoid doing them.
