I've always liked Reigen from day 1. And now I feel completely vindicated for it.

All that's left now is the big climactic final battle. So as long as this series can deliver on that end, I think I might have to regard this as my second favorite 12 episode anime.

Reigen winning all the gold medals in the next Olympics by simply distracting all his opponents? It is simply silly and ridiculous. If this is the type of hero you prefer, then good for you i guess I will take Mob and his fighting over Reigen's distracting skills any day of the week.

I would've liked him if he was actually the leader of Claws and actually had powers. He is confident, but lets see him pull that off against the Mexican cartels.

I love how Reigen was just giving the red shirts business advice and just plain being clueless as to the whole situation while being successful in rescuing them.

That's the point of the anime, having good esper power isn't different than being good at sports or at school.

Esper power can't solve all the problems.

And yeah they should just do body training that's what Dimple said to the minions.

Well, of course the anime is comedic so it's playing it for laughs. But are you saying that it would be impossible for a *really good* con man to find a way to pull one on some powerful criminal syndicate? I'm pretty sure that has to happen now and then - though understandably it's not a story we would learn. I mean, think of that guy Leonardo di Caprio plays in "Catch me if you can". Someone of that level who was crazy enough probably could pull it off. Yeah, of course it would be risky, but wits can be a weapon too.

EDIT: there, here's a real life example.

I am sad that Reigen didn't ended up as Claw's boss but at the same time, he became THE BOSS of the series. This man was able to walk into the base of evil organization casually, gained a bunch of followers, and saved Mob, Teru and Ritsu less than an hour. I also love how he managed to physically assaulted 2 espers at the same row despite that he has no power.

Reigen was right that despite what is the outcome of the fight, the one that will be truly suffered will be Mob. Just look at the past incident where unconscious Mob aka ???% hurt everyone around him, and that stunted his mental growth despite that he wasn't the one who hurt his brother intentionally. Now, Mob is cornered and he was about the cross the dangerous bridge, and most likely he will ended up like current Scar members, a bunch of adults that never grow up, if he went rampage mode.

But seriously, the gas mask person is really strong. Never thought that s/he was able to overpowered Mob with ease. It seems that every esper somehow developed their own unique attacks, ability and elements while Mob still using the basic telekinesis attack to win everything. Does he even has his own speciality?

Teru looks a lot better with a short hair than those ridiculous cactus hair. Good job of cutting those away, Mr.Katana.

The guy that using evil spirit as weapon is really a bad matchup against Mob. Mob was able to instant clear those spirits with one move.

Overall, the fights were amazing in this episode. The next episode should be good and at the same time, it is a sad news as it is going to end next week. Considered how the previous fooled me, I really doubt that Reigen is going to die in the next episode.

The flashback on how Reigen and Mob met was kinda touching, especially the advise that Reigen gave on Mob made Mob truly happy for a moment. I don't remember seeing Reigen smokes ever since episode 1 aired. Does this means that meeting Mob made him stop smoking? Maybe it was just like the ending theme has shown, Reigen's life was colorless until he met Mob in the end of the ending scene.

I would considered that as power boost. I mean something like air whip, gravity bomb and etc.

Teru said it himself when Terada was defeated. There's no use for techniques when you have overwhelming power.

he doesnt, for special techs you require a big amount of control (and enough energy), and mob has sh*tty control of his powers (which is the reason for his emotional "boosts" (which are actually his real powers :/) ) which will make the creation of techniques more or less impossible,
but i guess he will simply mess up everyone with his overhelming psychic strength so techniques arent needed

Its possible to have overwhelming power and technique. Tatsumaki is incredibly op and a genuis she just has never shown 100% yet which sucks -_-.

Powers are the same for psychics in both series.

I've always liked Reigen, but he was even more awesome than usual in this episode. He's actually a really good guy deep down too, not wanting Mob to go down the path of violence and suffer himself.

i never said he couldnt have techniques, only that he has incredible poor control of his abilitys since he doesnt use them or train them, but he mostly doesnt need to sonce his strength alone already defeats mostly everybody :/

+ if mob had technique and strength he would be the saitama of this story, his "emotion modes" are result of his lack of control, otherwise he could surely create some overkill techs

He has shown enough control to put a ruined school back in place, bit by bit...in his uncontrollable state :P

Seriously though, he doesn't know how to control his powers, that's why he went to Reigen in the first place. Suppressing them was not a bad option, but it can only last for so long...and has the side-effect of unintentional strong bursts every now and then.

he also has enough control in order to not kill people while using telekinesis on them, but still, he never showed fine-tuned techniques like the yellow-haired boy who gained superspeed with that skill...

well, he could have always trained his control, but he neglected his immense psychic abilitys which only worsened his situation, if he had mastered control over his powers than he wouldnt need to get beaten up by people,
plus, chances are high that he also had a minimum amount of social skills in order to stay on his own feets

PS: it seems like most people (aside from one) say reigan was awesome this episode and is great overall, i wish we had already the next week maybe mob will turn into this "white god mode" we saw at the beginning of ep1?

Anyone know what the deal was with Reigen and the cab driver in the beginning of the episode? I'm assuming the driver thought Reigen was going to the woods to commit suicide, but he seemed especially freaked out over the salt Reigen brought with him.

Salt is used for exorcisms. The generally creepy atmosphere gave him horror vibes.
