Part 100: 9/2-9/3: The Worst People In The GamePart 97: 9/2-9/3: The Worst People In The Game
Music: Beneath the Mask
You some kinda misfortune magnet or something? Just dont bring any bad luck down on me, got it?
No, my sister still hasnt come home.
Mannn, shes seriously that busy?
Probably because of us.
So, uh.. do you still want to go through with this ?
Yes. I can do it. Hold on, I have a message. It sounds like shes on her way home.
All right! Its finally time!
Understood. Ill report back tomorrow.
Oooh, I cant wait to see what comes of this
But who did it? Could #Millennials be possibly involved? We investigated to try and get to the bottom of this.
Wow, everyones so interested in the Phantom Thieves. Make sure you dont blow our cover, OK?
Im gonna murder all the rich people, old man, and you cant stop me.
By the way, is your house ever going to get air conditioning? Maid outfits get too hot during summer and really cold in winter. Theyre so impractical. Oh, well. Does your room need cleaning, or did you need me to cook for you? I provide all sorts of services! But, um theres stuff I need to talk to you about, so would you request me?
Ill be heading over right away, thennn. Please wait for me, Master!
But I have to say goodbye to it today.
The thing is, Ive decided to quit! ...My boss found me a part-time job that pays better than this one.
Takase-kuns guardians keep increasing their demands ...So this is just what I have to do.
Takase-kuns guardians say the only way to apologize to Takase-kun is by paying them. If thats not true, then whats the right thing to do here ? I wonder if I can escape all this if I quit being a teacher. People like me have no right being a teacher. If I quit on my own, I wont have to pay them Thats why Im going to quit both my teaching job and my maid job What do you think?
But did I really decide it on my own ? Now that I think about it, its too late for me to stop being a teacher. If I really felt bad for what happened, I wouldve resigned the day he died. And yet, I still felt the need to teach I wonder why I feel that way even now.
...Hamiru-kun. Oh, thats right I decided the way to apologize to him was to make sure there wont ever be another student like him. Because I mightve been able to save him if I hadnt been afraid of rumors or labels back then. I wanted to become a teacher who takes care of her students. Thats the mindset I had! But now, I spend all my free time at part-time jobs, just so I can continue working as a teacher. I put the critical work of a teacher on the back burner, so I could make apology money. Thats where it all went wrong I cant make things right with Takase-kun like this
Ill be the teacher I aspire to be Thats the right way for me to make amends to Takase-kun. From here on, I refuse to pay them any more money! And that is my answer! ...Well, what do you think?
...I learned that from you. In a way, youre MY teacher. ...Haha, just kidding.
This fall on Disney Channel, experience the heartwarmingly funny tale of the teacher who might just have more to learn from her students than the other way around! and also shes a prostitute
I feel Kawakamis trust in me strengthening...
Ive been so worried about making money that I havent been paying attention to my students. Especially to you. I averted my eyes from you because you were labeled, just like Takase-kun was But from now on, Im going to protect you too. As your teacher, I will never betray you.
The first option here is hilariously weird and line-crossing, even if it fits with the tone of the conversation better. Therefore I went with the second option, which is basically the equivalent of responding to Ill defend you with my life with Cool, and just seems ridiculously non-chalant.
Ill speak with the Takases. Im not going to run anymore. Everything should be fine as long as I talk to them face to face. All right, its time for me to go. Thank you Ill see you later. Good night.
Music: Days of Sisters
Im listing up the evidence thats been taken into storage. Its a chore that any part-timer could do. I dont have time to waste on something like this I felt like my irritation would show on my face at the office, so I brought it home.
Sorry to hear.
The Phantom Thieves case isnt so easy that I could pursue it in my spare time The media keeps making a ruckus about it, so people have been wary whenever we make inquiries. Why, I couldnt get anything out of a man who seemed to have intel I even tried threatening him.
All I did was question him a bit harshly.
Its unclear, but I think its possible shes talking about Sojiro, in which case this is a hilarious understatement.
Oh, I almost forgot Ill be going on a school trip starting next week The senior faculty are being questioned, so Ill be going in their stead
Sounds good to me. The school will owe you for it. It wont get in the way of your entrance exams, will it?
Not at all. ...Feel free to take a bath first. I need to study.
OK. I think Ill do that.
A progress bar appears onscreen.
This should do it, right?
I want to change my toothbrush.
I-I bought a new one already! Its on the shelf!
HOT TOOTHBRUSH REPLACEMENT ACTION
An extremely soft thud can be heart from the bathroom, so quiet I had to rewind the video and turn my volume all the way up to hear it. Theres zero chance anyone playing this on a TV would have heard this, is what Im saying. Also Saes been in the tub for maybe twenty seconds at this point.
It's pretty great that according to the portraits Sae bathes fully clothed because they couldn't be bothered to give her a whole second outfit.
Its so close to being done too !
What is it?
I bought a new bath salt. Its on the same shelf, so would you mind putting it in the tub?
Not at all.
The process completes.
Im not entirely sure I did it correctly though
Oooh, Ive been waiting for this! Gimme, gimme, gimme!
I have to head to school right now though
Whoa! My bad! Bring it right after then. Im gonna punish you if youre lateee!
Looks like it went well! I wonder what well find Oh! Before that, we should get over to school!
Music: Beneath the Mask (Instrumental Version)
He knew all about Kamoshida, but kept his mouth shut. Ridiculous
Well, lets vote him up on the Phan-Site. I cant imagine the Phantom Thieves wouldnt go after someone so rotten. Im sure other teachers knew, too. Anyone who did deserves a change of heart.
Yeah But, wait! What if it messes up our school trip? Maybe we should wait until after.
Music: So Boring
Your destination is none other than Hawaii. I hope your passport isnt about to expire. Youre heading out on Wednesday, so theres no time to get a new one printed.
Anyhow, Im sure youll enjoy your time sightseeing in Hawaii more if you have more knowledge.
Fucker, Im MAXED
Now then, Hamiru-kun. Look closely at this picture.
Yes, really. Thats his name.
In this famous statue, hes holding a spear in his left hand, but what does he have in his right?
Were gonna get sued.
Thats correct. Hes actually just holding his hand in the air.
As an aside, it seems that this statue is not of King Kamehameha himself.
I want you all to know that Kamehameha does not set off my word processors spellcheck. Dragon Ball is real, yall.
After Kamehamehas death, another king commissioned the statue, using a boy from his court as the model.
Maaku gains Knowledge +1.
I hope you will make the most out of your five days there. Let me just say that I have a fondness for macadamia nuts, so
Souvenirs, huh I definitely wouldnt want to get some wooden figurine. I cant understand why people would send things like that as gifts
I repeat, Hamiru-kun, please come to the Student Guidance Office.
That sounded like Kawakami. I wonder whats up
Hmm, what could Kawakami want with us during lunchtime?
I told them that Im not going to pay them any more money!
Good for you!
Music: Break it Down (Elp Version)
Im going to devote myself to being a great teacher! No matter what others say, I wont waver. So, thank you for giving me such good advice. I just thought you should be the first to know
Tch, him again?
How rude I guess a student is only as good as his teacher. Obviously you lack a proper education.
You thought you could just call and say youre not going to pay anymore? Who do you think you are?
Wait, I thought she said she was gonna do it in person? Guess she got cold feet?
Its what I decided, for Takase-kuns sake. Im going to make sure there wont be any more students like him, who
So youre just trying to get out of your responsibility? I bet you dont even care about Taiki! How are you still a teacher? Maybe we really should sue the Board of Education! Are you OK with that? A teacher who caused her student to die would surely cause a scandal.
If you want to take legal action, then go ahead. Regardless, Ill continue teaching. Ive decided that thats the best apology I can make to Takase-kun. Paying money to you two is not the solution, to say the least!
Hmmm Along with suing you, maybe I should tell everyone about your little secret
How did you !?
Oh? So Im right, am I?
I mean, the amount of money youre paying us cant come from just a teachers salary. Well? Shall we head on over to the faculty office?
Hah! A teacher working in the sex industry? Youve definitely done it this time. How unfortunate for you that you thought you could just leave Taikis matter unsettled You know what you have to do now, right? Pay up! And dont ever call us again with this garbage about stopping the payments!
I know! But what am I supposed to do ?
Now theres a plan.
Kawakami appears to be deeply hurting I need to do something for Kawakami
...Who? The Takases? The husband is Toshio-san and his wife is Hiromi-san Haha, I could never forget them. I send them money every week
Please dont. A Shujin teacher asking the Phantom Thieves for help would be
Who said anything about the Phantom Thieves? I was going to break into their house and kick them until they stop moving. Holy shit, what awful people.
Just forget everything, OK? If you think about it, Im right back where I started ...
Haha Class is about to start I need to go.
This is just heartbreaking.
I need to do something about the targets for Kawakami
Man, that was depressing. Time for some whiplash!
Music: Wicked Plan
If were gonna lay low, we might as well enjoy it. Aww, look at this one! Gigantic sea-turtle sightseein on some beach.
Come on, foods more important than some turtle. You really dont find steak this big and thick in Japan! Also mahi-mahi? Is that some kind of fish? Think its good?
I thought Anns deal was sweets, not meat. Youre infringing on Chies gimmick!
It seems that its the season for schools all around. Were going on our school trip as well.
Yeah? Where you guys goin?
I believe its Los Angeles.
Ahaha, that doesnt suit you at all, Yusuke! I bet you wanted to go somewhere like Nikko or Nara.
Anywhere is acceptable. Natural mineral pigments used for Japanese art was also originally imported.
What countrys that ?
Wait, are you scared of airplanes?
I dunno guys, its so hard to pick, and Im just a little distracted by the fact that my homeroom teacher is being forced into selling her body against her will to raise money to pay her blackmailers. Thats still pretty fresh. But Im sure whatever you fucks are goofing off talking about is pretty important too.
Well make sure to buy a souvenir for you.
Just no wooden figurines. He hates those, apparently.
Ooh, here comes some interesting data.
But it says perpetrated and connected.
Actually, its not just about people having shutdowns. Looks like shes inferring that the psychotic breakdown incidents are connected to the same case.
Flashbacks to previous events made completely meaningless by the fact that none of its in fucking English!
How long do you think itll take to analyze all of it?
Hmm, theres a lot, so its not happening overnight. But Ill manage by the time you guys get back. I demand souvenirs from Hawaii and LA for my reward.
I dont really get all this, but youre as amazing as always, Futaba! I guess its called an information war? Its so high tech and modern, it kinda reminds me of a movie.
Were the Phantom Thieves, so its not that big a deal. I mean, I can turn into a car and stuff too
Cmon, dont try and compete with her.
What did you say!?
Youre fine the way you are, Morgana. Like, youre cheeky cute?
Cute Lady Ann I
I cant wait to see how much the Phantom Thieves popularity has increased by then!
Music: Beneath the Mask
Youre really sounding like a teacher right now, man. Whatre you even saying that for?
Didnt I tell you? Ill be coming along.
The teachers have asked me to chaperone the trip in their place.
Yes. I was worried about how many troublemakers will be there.
Are you talking about us!?
Wait, what? I just said Im glad shes coming and she immediately turns around and insults me?
But why are they having you go at all, Makoto?
It seems some teachers have to stay behind to deal with that tabloid article. So, they decided to get a couple of third-years to act as additional chaperones. It seems a few others besides myself will be going as well.
Oh, I see.
Either way, this overseas trip has been truly long-awaited. I expect leaving Japan will be a great eye-opener for us. This is a wonderful opportunity, so we should be sure to enjoy it.
Dont forget souvenirs!
OH GOD, COP
...Things have blown up in my face ever since I criticized the Phantom Thieves. Sae-san even warned me to watch what I say to the public. I suppose their popularity is beyond my imagination I should think more before I open my mouth. I must be going now. The coffee was delicious.
Hes a sharp kid. Why dont you try learning from him?
Donning a cloak of wind, a Feather Arrow will cleave the sky! Revive and fight Phoenix Rangers! Next episode Feather Pinks Victory.
Lets get another Affinity Reading.
And we can rank up next time we see him, perfect.

I barely use a PC cause Id be in trouble if it got hacked. So, youre here cause you saw my message, right?
This time, Im going to have you gather some info. Youll be on your own though. I gotta take care of some other business.
The guy youre lookin for is homeless, but he knows whats up. Hell be somewhere in Shibuya. Get info on the rumor about the underground deal, and dont act all suspicious. I gotta take care of some other business, so Im countin on ya, kid.
Yknow you can find anything you need on the internet, right ?
...Who sent you here?
As funny as it would be to immediately narc on Iwai, nah.
Sure. Anyway, Ill tell you but just this once. Youre gettin into some shady business here. All right, just act like Im mumblin to myself, you got it? No promises Im gonna say anything useful either.
Apparently something big went down with a huge Asian investor. Deal was worth about 100 million yen.
Im fucking serious you guys, Iwais Confidant so far just seems to be a random mishmash of every single Yakuza game.
Though youd figure something that massive woulda got more people talkin about it Maybe they leased some kinda high-end club to keep it as private as possible ? I didnt hear a thing about that though.
Its nice to hear that comin from you, Tsuda-san.
All right Iwai, Ill take one of everything you showed me today. Ill need an entire arsenal. How long would that take?
Depends on how quick the parts come in. Some stuffs prolly gonna have to go through customs How long things get stuck theres totally outta my control though
Well then if you dont deliver on time, I might just have to let Kaoru-kun in on your little secret.
God, what is it with today and blackmail?
I wonder, how will an adolescent boy like him react to finding out his father was in the yakuza ? I guess if things go sour, we could always try to sell him again...
Im sorry, what?
Fine Ill put a rush on your order. Happy now?
Very much so. Well then, I look forward to hearing from you again soon.
*sigh* Sorry you had to see that. Anyways, howd it go today? You learn about anything good?
Huh. So someone made a big deal with the Hong Kong mafia worth 100 million yen And it happened sometime round New Years ...Wouldnt surprise me if Tsuda had somethin to do with it. I hear hes been braggin all over about a big score he made right near the start of the year. Ive gotta do some more research into it myself
But, uh another time, yeah? Man, I cant wait to see the look on Tsudas face. Its been ages since Ive felt this excited. And its all cause of you, kid. Turns out youre pretty useful.
Well, Im gonna head home early and spend some good ol quality time with Kaoru to celebrate. Damn fine job again, kid. Get on outta here.
I feel like helping Iwai with his work has honed my Proficiency
Maaku gains Proficiency +2.
Ill see ya next time.
