I also answered this one here! But truth be told any English dub moment is funny. That dub is g o l d. For example
8: Favorite and least favorite arc?
Tbh I think my favorite arc is the Mogami arc, mostly for projection reasons. owo;; and my least favorite arc is the Separation arc because it deals with my biggest fear. ^^;;
18: What headcanons do you have for Reigen?
Dude….D u d e….do you even realize…who I am…? Buckle up and lets go.
-Reigen used to love to sing and wanted to be a famous singer but was bullied out of liking the sound of his own voice, so that desire of wanting to be famous morphed into ‘wanting to be somebody’
-When Mob nods off on really long bus rides, Reigen lets him use him as a pillow and hums softly to help him rest.
-Reigen’s favorite stim is running his hands through his salt bag.
-Reigen has a shady file on his computer called ‘massages’ which many people think to be a porn folder….it isn’t…its literally just tips and tricks on massages.
-Reigen used to have some purified salt, but discovered the hard way that it hurts espers.
-Reigen loves dogs, but never was able to have one because his mother was allergic.
And now a thing from my Headcanon list:
-Reigen….Is a walking existential midlife crisis. He doesn’t know what he wants to do so he tried to do everything and now….he’s a con man running a half successful consultation office and using a child to do his shit for him and he came from a pretty shitty work life that was physically, mentally, and emotionally draining and so he decided to help as many people as he could
but yeah. that’s totally where his issues of self worth came in because reigen was good in school but here’s the thing he never knew what he wanted to do and god has he tried.
he’s changed himself over and over and over and over again to try to find something that he might at least be INTERESTED in. but no. He’s not interested. All that’s in his head that are interesting are superhero shows and esper powers (because this guy was most definitely a reverse weeb at some point if he knew about obscure American cartoons about food based superheros.)
but he can’t find anything real.
He can’t find anything Useful
And after schools over he just collapses in on himself and gets a soul draining job as a phone clerk at some sort of company and he has to turn so many people down and he has to not help and there are people crying and he goes home crying but his mom is proud of him because he has a job!!! but….but…
he’s lost his heart. his soul. his love for the world and he feels empty inside and the depression grows and grows and grows until he becomes seriously ill and has to take a week off to just think and reflect on himself and when he’s doing this he reconnects with the things he used to love. with the things he’s always wanted to be…
And he quits the next week and makes his business and starts the most bullshitted project he’s ever done in his life. but he does this with such intensity and such determination that it doesn’t flop in the first few months and he’s okay with most of his clients being just normal people needing massages because
HE CAN HELP PEOPLE. HE CAN HELP PEOPLE.
AND HE’S HAPPY FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A LONG WHILE BECAUSE HE CAN HELP PEOPLE.
HE CAN BE S O M E B O D Y
He actually gets his hands on some exorcising salt and he actually manages to exorcise a few real ghosts by sheer dumb luck but then one day as he’s smoking a cigarette after a long and quiet day there comes a little knock on the door and before this knock Reigen’s life had been pretty much the same as it was in the job. just day after day. job after job. the only difference being he was actually able to help people.
but this door opens and there’s this kid there and this kid is so small, so vulnerable and so hurt…
He knows it’s probably a prank but he can’t turn away a kid like this….and he feels really happy when he finally makes this stoic kid smile….but then he asks to come back in tomorrow and reigen doesn’t know if he can do this…if he can lie in front of a kid…
but then mob uses his powers and reigen remembers his empty wallet and his bills piling up and he hates himself for what he’s about to do but he does it anyway because it would help both of them…right??? right??
and every day he feels guilty but he hides it behind confidence and shit and it continues and then one day he realizes that he’s patting mob’s hair and praising him and actually enjoying himself because god, he really loves this kid doesn’t he…?
bU T HEY. I THINK I RAMBLED ON FOR TOO LONG SO OWO;;
