Reigen was such a jerk to Mob this episode.
This arc was actually fairly short in the manga with chapters in general being shorter than those in the Mogami arc. To put it into comparison, this episode adapted the first three chapters of this arc whereas episode 4 adapted around 5 chapters and episode 5 did 4 fairly lengthy ones. That montage was in the manga as well and was just as short there.Honestly all of the talk about the Mogami arc feeling rushed when I didn't get that vibe much led me to wondering if this episode would feel rushed to manga readers too. Particularly the montage near the end. It sounds like it was paced similarly in the manga, though.
Ya, it hit me hard, too. The episode was quite a swerve, going from Reigen being a cocky asshole to all that being a front for a sad and lonely man. Meanwhile Mob, the nobody, is gradually opening up to the friends and support he's gained along the way.
