Serizawa's former look

Serizawa is a man of magnum height and build. Whilst still a member of Claw, he had curly black hair, somewhat heavy eyebrows, a thin mustache, and stubble. He wore an orange robe over a black shirt, along with black pants, and bright green crocs. He carried his white umbrella with him at all times. After the fall of Claw, he no longer carries his umbrella.

After being invited to work with Reigen and Shigeo at the agency, Reigen trims Serizawa's hair and shaves his face. When working at the agency he wears a two-piece business suit.

Serizawa's Crocs

Personality

Serizawa is very sheltered and naive. He placed all his trust in Toichiro Suzuki and looked up to him as a personal saviour, following his orders without question. His face tends to clearly reflect his emotions. If he is separated from his umbrella, he panics and completely loses control of his psychic power, which causes heavy damage to his surroundings. He is haunted by a deep fear of his own power.

Serizawa is a very nervous person. Due to his years under Toichiro Suzuki, he seems to have difficulty acting on his own without guidance from others. However, after the fall of Claw and joining Reigen's agency, Serizawa is slowly coming out of shell and becoming more independent.

Serizawa, before and during his time with the Spirits and Such Consultation Office, is shown to be caring of others' wellbeing, even going as far as keeping himself in his room for the sake of others' safety. Currently, he is more careful with his feelings and considers his thoughts more before giving advice or commentary. He's gained a little more confidence by working alongside Reigen and gaining friends where he studies.

History

At the age 12, Serizawa feared his seemingly uncontrollable psychic power to the point that he decidedly kept himself in his bedroom and refused to leave. In fear that he may hurt people by accident, and without the guidance of an adult willing to help control his psychic abilities, he remained a shut-in for 15 years. Toichiro Suzuki finally coaxed him to leave (and by doing so, join Claw) by offering him an umbrella and encouraging him to view it as an extension of his room. Serizawa followed him, hoping to learn to control his powers and rejoin society. Instead, Suzuki used him to further the aims of Claw, leaving him and his well-being utterly dependent on both Suzuki and his umbrella. Serizawa viewed Claw as a company, Suzuki as the president, and himself as an employee.

Plot

World Domination Arc

After hearing Serizawa's past, Mob bluntly told Serizawa that he was being used. When he tried to argue in his own defense, Mob bluntly told him that he was following the wrong person. He made a token attempt to fight Mob, using his umbrella as both a weapon and a shield, but was eventually won over by the sincerity and empathy of Mob's 100% Friendship. By sharing his energy with Serizawa, Mob was also able to share his memories of true friendship with him, which helped Serizawa to understand the true nature of his relationship with Suzuki.

He later used his umbrella to save Reigen from Suzuki's wrath. Suzuki retaliated by blasting Serizawa with psychic energy until his umbrella was torn to shreds, then draining Serizawa's power to use for himself.

Serizawa is present at Toichiro's arrest. His former boss then tells him that he never really cared about him.

Powers & Abilities

When he was a member of Claw, Toichiro Suzuki stated that Serizawa is the most powerful of the Ultimate 5.[2] He is strong enough to block an attack from Suzuki at 3% of his power output[3] as well as to put up a fight against Mob. His psychic aura takes on a purple color with a TV static pattern within.

Serizawa's Abilities
Serizawapower
Umbrella Psychokinesis
Serizawa possesses extremely powerful psychokinesis, which he channels through his umbrella to make it a powerful weapon both in melee and ranged combat. He can open it to use it as a shield or close it to use it as a powerful bludgeon. He also demonstrated an unnamed technique where he charged a destructive energy ball at the tip of the umbrella and launched it at the opponent.[4] He used the umbrella as a conduit in order to not lose control of his immense power, though he has recently overcome this issue and doesn't require the umbrella to control himself anymore.

Quotes

  • (To Mob) "Please... don't make me angry. Do you know how much your words hurt?"[5]
  • "Ability... I can build... plastic models really well. Ah... What else..."
  • "How awesome is that... I talked to the prime minister." [6]
