I will never, ever, ever get tired of ONE turning shonen expectations on their heads. I love the way the two panels on the left set everything up for a giant go-all-out battle of psychic powers between Shimazaki and Mob…
…and then the next few panels have Reigen just walking straight up to Shimazaki and punching him right in the fucking face.
And the only way he could do it, was because he doesn’t have any psychic powers at all.
1. He is kind 2. He is selfless 3. He is flawed 4. He is sarcastic 5. He’s seen the worst that the world and humanity can give and became the opposite 6. He loves freely and openly 7. He is passionate 8. He is messy 9. He is genuine 10. “Be kind to yourself so you can be happy enough to be kind to the world” 11. He is bright 12. He is intelligent 13. He is witty 14. He is sharp 15. When he realized how much of an impact he had, he founded a non profit charity that promotes small random acts of kindness and created a scavenger hunt that fosters creativity to raise funds for that charity 16. He is an incredible actor 17. He is the father every child needs 18. He is an attentive husband 19. He is a loving friend 20. “I want to live in a world where the word ‘normal’ is an insult” 21. He is real about life sometimes being complicated and confusing 22. He fights hatred with kindness 23. He is present 24. He doesn’t take himself too seriously 25. He wakes up early to hand out coffee at ComicCon, stays up late to serve dinner, because he gives love in spades 26. He values family 27. He supports everyone at once without ever knowing it 28. He recognizes and owns his mistakes and learns from them 29. He believes that people can grow 30. “Do what you love and the 'good’ will follow” 31. He believes in the power of one person 32. He is proof of that power 33. He helps people living in the dark see the light 34. He allows people to love themselves, quirks and all 35. He understands things on a deeper level than most; he seems to immediately comprehend the meaning behind words and empathize with the experience even if he lacks a personal frame of reference 36. He stands up for those who can’t stand up for themselves 37. He fights on behalf of all 38. He sees beyond himself 39. He is vocal about injustice 40. “I am passionate about tea, running, the idea that we are bound only by the limits of our imaginations, and maple syrup” 41. The way his smile lights up a room 42. The way his laugh is contagious 43. The way he is unapologetically himself and in doing so, helps others do the same
does christian go from playing an emotional, temperamental, psychotic, mean man who broke up with his boyfriend over a chess game to immediately playing a lunatic quirkycharacter inspired by bugs bunny?
i mean obviously they are completely different characters and christian was probably slightly relieved to not be crying every night (that must be so emotionally taxing i cant even imagine???) but like holy S H I T he’s so diverse and does his talent know no bounds??
– and yet he’s maybe the most humble human being and he loves and gives so readily and easily and he’s such a darling to all the kids he works with.
and i know he’s not conventionally like a zac efron “type” or whatever but he’s so under-appreciated and im sorry i’ll shut up now but i just felt the need to gush about this man
