teru is literally congratulating mob for buying the bouquet of flowers???? he’s really trying to speak to mob, to reach mob. and i guess talking to ???% as if it were mob is an usual way to approach to the situation. i mean, ???% (whatever it is) is in mob’s body, so trying to talk to him seems like a natural reaction.
but teru has seen ???%, he knows of what mob in this state is capable, he was attacked, and that must have been pretty terrifying. ritsu was afraid of mob for years after the time ???% appeared
he also knows that ???% it’s something else, he knows it’s not mob.
[this is from chapter 18 btw]
BUT EVEN KNOWING THIS HE STILL IS TRYING TO TALK TO MOB BECAUSE HE BELIEVES IN MOB AND HE BELIEVES THAT HE CAN REGAIN CONTROL; HE’S SUCH A GOOD FRIEND.
despite everything he knows, he still believes in mob and he’s also trying to protect him… teru’s is an amazing friend and a very brave kid and i’m getting very emotional about this
