Part 123: 10/12-10/13: Its A Setup
Music: Beneath the Mask
Maaku, do you just spend all your unoccupied time sitting on your bed staring at Morgana until someone texts you? Thats kinda weird, man.
Speak of the devil.
No luck here.
She wont pick up.
I mean, if you were her, would you trust us right now? We might have killed her dad, and unbeknownst to all of us she now thinks we murdered the principal too.
It doesnt look like shes seen any of our chats either.
Im worried about her
I just said that, Ann.
She wouldnt, right? ...Right?
Im surprised the cops arent already here, cat.
Today, the police investigated President Okumuras home and other places he visited. Theyre looking into whether this was a crime or an accident, but what caused his death is still unknown.
Sounds like the police even went to your school What are they going to do?
Is there an illness that could cause that ?
Nah, no way
So it was murder? Thats terrifying
This might be the biggest event of the century!
Anon: That was all an act, right?
Anon: Is he really dead ?
Anon: what is the press thinking
Anon: Well that was disturbing
Anon: Now, whos next? : )
Were dropping precipitously at this rate...
Anon: eh, good riddance
Anon: I cant believe anyone now!
Anon: Evil has perished.
Anon: So, whodunnit?
Maaku, you need to get dressed, buddy! You have school today!
Yes Thank you. Um, theres actually something thats caught my attention. I think I need to discuss it with everyone though. We should meet at the hideout after school.
It looks like Haru is managing somehow. All right, lets meet up with everyone after school.
But that was a live broadcast, wasnt it?
If it wasnt an illness then it has to be murder!
Didnt he kinda deserve to die anyway?
Still, I feel bad for him, going out like that
Anon: killing ppls a no-no
Anon: ohhhhh shiiiii!!!
Anon: KARMA, BITCH!! lolol
Anon: dont fukkin murder ppl
Anon: Aww, what a waste
The public has praised them as allies of justice, before they strike them back to the ground Now then, shell be next
It will be a heavy responsibility, but Im certain itd be an honor for her. The culprits behind the mental shutdown cases shes been pursuing all this time ...Haha, indeed. Theyll become the criminals weve set them up to be just as you instructed.
Theres a muffled-yet-loud voice coming from outside, seemingly that of a man giving a speech.
Summoning the cops to beat our asses down, I assume!
Shes the one that called us, so shell show up eventually.
Well, even though things have calmed down, she must be occupied with what happened to her father
Yusuke with no reaction.
Okay, Yusukes completely stonefaced for two in a row? Thats funny and weird. Maybe they just forgot to set his reactions properly?
Still, this was inevitable due to the circumstances, we shouldnt be all that shocked.
Something about his completely deadpan shocked face is hilarious.
So its begun already
Think about it. The CEO collapsed the way he did, during an apology conference that our group caused.
Still ! They were raving about us so much and now they just treat us like murderers ?
What a lightning-fast change of attitude!
Calm down. Not everyone is necessarily saying that
But theres no way to vindicate ourselves.
Im sorry Im late. Im the one who asked you all to make time for me too
...My condolences. It must be rough.
Im OK now.
Did you all target the principal?
Yusuke, man, react to something here, youre freaking me out!
Huh? The principal? ...You mean ours?
What makes you say that?
Yesterday, a public prosecutor came to my home. Um it was a woman named Niijima-san.
I overheard her saying that a calling card was found in the principals office. Considering that this was right after what happened Its got to be Shujins.
It may just be my imagination But I feel as if things are escalating far too quickly after President Okumuras incident.
Its Yusuke! Yusuke did it! I dont know what he did, but its the only explanation for why hes so goddamn chill about all this!
That could be
Then we need to catch them as soon as possible.
Hold a moment. Can we assume weve been set up though? We dont even know their objective.
Im going to assume it was ruin our reputation and prevent Okumura from spilling the beans, dude. You know, the two direct consequences of his death thus far?
What else are we supposed to do then!?
Lets all calm down for a moment. From what Haru said, even the police are suspecting that the Phantom Thieves are murderers It wouldnt be wise to carelessly make a move at the moment. We need to act as normal students for now. In addition, we have midterms next week.
Exams? At a time like this ? Rgh I envy you, Futaba ...Futaba?
Everyone turns to look at Futaba.
Got something on my mind. Gonna go home and look into it.
At any rate, we need to behave and not draw attention to ourselves. Understood?
For some reason, probably just because shes not facing the camera, Haru doesnt nod. Morgana doesnt either, but hes a cat.
Theyre heroes! They would never do that!
Id be disappointed if they just turned out to be criminals
It has to be some kind of trick! They would never do that!
...I cant think of any other explanation. That has to be it!
Anon: actually, im ok w/this lol
Anon: theyre in a tough spot now
Anon: This is a murder case?
Anon: we need dox on these guys
Anon: but Madarames alive, huh
Music: Beneath the Mask
But thats impossible!
Why are people doubting the Phantom Thieves over what happened to President Okumura?
Yeah, I trust them! Anyway, it seems like everyones forgotten all that theyve done up to this point. That wont stop me though. Ill continue cheering them on. Make sure you tell them that! Well, see you later!
Mishima is a bit narrow-sighted, but hes a good person deep down. We cant betray him
You have to be kidding me! How could they accuse us of that!?
Stock prices are lowits almost certain Okumura Foods is pressured to restructure their management. The public is watching to see how they handle the issues Mr. Okumura addressed in his press conference.
Whats going to happen to Harus company? Im worried about that, too.
Seems like it!
