“Reigen -The Miraculous Unknown Psychic-” (OVA, 2018)

Mob questions the accuracy of it all, but Reigen argues that he’s just exaggerating for dramatic effect. Finally, Mob finishes writing and his friends from school decide to be the editors before it goes to print.
They read it, painfully reacting to the incredible inaccuracy of the “biographical film.” Later, Reigen receives the first print copy of the book and reads it, only to horribly discover that all of his “achievements” have been removed, with Mob now the focus and himself barely in it. With his crowdfunding campaign only receiving 2,500 yen (which was from Reigen himself), he uses the money to treat Mob to ramen.

On the train ride there, Reigen and Serizawa fall asleep just as they enter a tunnel, and when they wake up they find themselves in the other dimension.
Mob, Jitsu, and Dimple reach the hot springs where they meet up with Teru, while also dragging away a sleeping Reigen and Serizawa. The head of the springs encourages them to take it easy for the day, where they learn of the Ihoben spirit, famous for blocking the entrance to a parallel world where they are.
Reigen desperately tries to figure out what’s going on in the other dimension but finds himself stuck in an endless loop on the train, while Serizawa discovers that he can get in and out with ease. After many days trapped alone on the train, being only a few hours in real life, Reigen realizes what Serizawa has been doing and gets him to bring Mob and the others to help him.

Dimple realizes that the owners of the hot springs are descendants of Ihoben and possess latent psychic powers, and the distortion was due to her getting a cold. With the mystery solved, Reigen and the others return home the next day, and Reigen falls asleep in the tunnel again, just as one of the hot spring elders catches a cold.
