Part 169: 11/25: Life As A Dead ManPart 159: 11/25: Life As A Dead Man
Anon: Evil is destined to perish.
Anon: What a sore loser
Anon: Innocent? Makes no sense
Anon: we do need new authority
I bet itll be an overwhelming victory for Representative victory for Representative Shido!
Yeah Im definitely gonna vote for him!
Maybe Ill actually vote this time
There arent many politicians who are like Shido-san!
Anon: Evil is destined to perish.
Anon: he shoulda confessed first
Anon: Innocent? Makes no sense
Anon: we do need new authority
Music: Stock SFX of wind
Haha. I guess it must be hard, even for you. Now that we know whos behind it all, we cant get hasty. Rushing will just make us sloppy. But geez, its been getting cold lately. We might freeze to death before we can change his heart. Lets look to see if we can find anything to help us get warm.
Music: Alright (Elp Version)
Its so warm Once we take care of Shido
Hm? Well I was just thinking This might be the last job for the Phantom Thieves.
Oh no, serious time!
Everyones goals and ambitions Theyre all linked to taking down Shido. Thats how I feel. We all became phantom thieves for our own reasons. We werent just playing around. Outside of the Phantom Thieves, you also have friends whove been helping you. They believe in you. We have an important battle ahead of us, and we only made it all this way because of them.
Hint hint pay attention you idiot, this is the end of the game and youre about to run out of time to max your shit
Haha, youre right. Then again, you didnt die, even though you were killed, right? The others are tough too!
This upcoming battle is personal, so well do it your way. Now you can fight Shido on your terms!
Music: So Boring
I believe I mentioned this before but Hamiru-kun is back at his familys home. Its a private matter, so dont go spreading rumors.
How long can we keep this up? We need to take care of things before we get caught
For the rest of the game, the roaming music has been changed to this track. Spooky.
A dead man cannot go to school, you know. It would all be for nothing if they found out hes still alive.
Yes. We need to be careful to make sure were not being watched as well.
Want me to get special servants for this situation?
You really think like such a rich girl!
Well have to be particularly careful when we gather at the hideout. Everyone will need to make sure theyre not being followed.
K, Ill watch out.
That wasnt directed at you.
This is the final showdown, so lets watch our steps.
Thats so unlike you, Ryuji!
Shuddup! Anyways, lets get this shit started. Well be waiting for you to contact us.
OK, soyoull stand out too much during the day, so we need to go at night. Were about to face our toughest target to date. Dont skimp on your preparations.
Then dont give me more shit to deal with, gosh. JK Mishima, you know I love you.
Anyway, heres the info I have This one is cruel.
I dunno, like selling them magical vases or something. Anyway, they keep moving around, so its been difficult to reliably track them. Apparently the police have just stopped trying entirely From what Ive read online, their representative is a guy named Yoshihito Wakasa. Sorry I dont have any more info than that. Good luck.
It might be tough for us to go at a time like this, but the info itself is pretty worthwhile. If we have the chance to head into Mementos, hed make a great target.
There still seems to be enough fuel left...
Sadly, despite what this sentence implies, there is no riveting fuel-fetching mechanic for the heater.
Taking into account the current political chaos, the period until the election is unusually long. Election day is on the 18th of next month. Each party is in for a long fight.
The election is on the 18th. We better make sure to settle things before then!
Hes a very eloquent man, and its very impressive to hear him live. Hes got a lot of promise.
I always thought politicians couldnt be trusted, but I think hes someone worth voting for.
...Then again, Im sure no ones gonna be looking for someone whos supposed to be dead.
Now its time for everyones favorite LP tradition, Talking To Every NPC In The Game!
Its because they finally caught the Phantom Thieves. That boy, Akechi, is a real hero. Ill admit, I dont have much hope for young people, but this one shows a lot of promise.
The leader of the Phantom Thieves who died was just a kid! His capture was really sudden, and things happened so fast that it was hard to keep up.
To think that a kid could be guilty of murder This countrys going down the drain.
I dont think so. The Phantom Thieves arent here anymore.
Youre a liar! The Phantom Thieves are superheroes! They have to come and make Kotaro feel better
The Sweet Potato Vendor now has 50 SP restoring potatos, though were limited to one per customer.
Ohoho You know, Ive actually met Shido-san, during one of my hus-buddys functions.
Is that so? We just met him the other day, while joining the supporters association. He seemed quite nice. Were you at the event?
Ha, Modest Housewife has changed to Not-so-modest Housewife.
The most shocking thing to me is that the Phantom Thieves are minors Theyre around our age, right? High school ?
Usually this stuff gets posted on the Internet. I cant seem to find anything, though
That Angel Tart we heard about on TV a while back is finally available.
Leave those two for the others. I want to uncover the truth about the Phantom Thieves. This is our chance; its what everyone wants to know!
Youre right It could be quite the scoop!
Because of the election campaign speeches? Yeah, sucks they held em during peak business hours.
That Shido guy was there, I hear. Theres a huge crowd wherever he goes.
Makes sense. Hes always on TV, plus hes pretty charismatic.
However, the traitorous apostles, the Phantom Thieves, have fallen. That is quite comforting.
You are wrong. The delinquency of my apostles is part of the governments wicked conspiracy! I return to purge the darkness! Now, listen to the voice of the Ultra-Electromagnetic Sun God!
Woohoo! The Sun God is back!
Oh, is this your motherly side? Your daughter is in high school now, isnt she?
She goes to Shujin Academy. Ive been worried for her since I heard the Phantom Thieves go there. I finally felt relieved when I heard they caught their leader, but this is rather shocking
They say please so much, they sound like pick-up artists.
I dont care about the election Its not like wed get girls by changing politics
Master, why do you look so down?
Buy these wonderful study guides, and you too can become a genius like Akechi-kun. Sil vous plait?
Ah, maybe Ill buy those for my son. Akechi-kun is really quite impressive, after all. Its true that if you want your son to succeed and join the elite, education will be real important.
The elites wont need all that fancy book-learnin when we break out the guillotines.
Ahh, yep. So your signature here, then, sil vous plait
I love that Fishy Hawker uses pretentious French. That shits canon.
You dont know? Thats right. Theres no way to know! And thats why we plan ahead. With Wanna-B-Alerts security guarantee, youll be safe in times of unpredictable danger! Before the years end, wont you finally start putting a priority on safety before its too late?
Its surprising that no one knows that boys identity. I thought for sure the police would leak it.
I suppose theyd want to keep that info to themselves after salvaging their dignity with that arrest.
Its too bad that he died, though. I really wish I could have represented him.
The announcements finally been made though. This countrys future is all depending on--
All theyre doing is kissing everyones ass. We dont know what those politicians are really like.
W-Wait, but having a new ruling party could really make big changes in Japan!
That suicide leaves a real bad taste in my mouth. And we never found out who they were Well have to get Mr. Shido to expose them! Murderers dont deserve any rights!
Theres no info on the internet, either. Theres got to be some huge, dark conspiracy here
I know theres an actual conspiracy, but the way these idiots are talking about it makes me think theyre gonna start some #PAnon bullshit.
What!? Youre just going to throw away the celeb lifestyle? Its just over the horizon! I just bought stocks for companies that are donating a lot to Shido!
All you talk about is money. Theres no point in us being together
Holy fucking shit, you go girl! Finally breaking up with this loser! Ive been rooting for you this whole time!
Now that we have that out of the way, lets listen to some random reactions to Shido and Akechi.
Fucking low-information voters!
Akechi really is dreamy, huh.
And now that were finally done with all of the chatter, we can head over to Haru. As I mentioned earlier, our goal for now before heading into the Palace is to max out our remaining Confidants. Theres only one problem: were legally dead and cant be spotted at school! What to do ? Well, we can at least hide near the school gate, so lets do that.
All right Lets sneak past everyone and go up the emergency exit.
Breaking onto school grounds seems like a great idea, sure!
And so we make it up here. I have no idea what happens if you need to see Ryuji or Makoto, though.
Thanks to our Confidant Rank with Haru, we get 3 Moonlight Carrots instead of 2.
And we go right back to planting more. These will be ready on the 29th.
Im thinking of going to find some books to help me study coffee. Would you mind coming with me?
Thank you! How about Jinbocho? It would be the perfect place to look. Well, lets get going.
Music: Alright (Elp Version)
It says here that the type of roast you want should differ depending on how you want to drink your coffee.
You know, Okumura Foods didnt start out as a burger chain
We actually started out as a pancake house.
Originally it was nothing more than a small cafe run by my grandfather. That particular shop closed before I was old enough to appreciate the finer intricacies of coffee But thats where the real origin of our family business lies.
At any rate, after my grandfather passed, the company shut the cafe down due to its steady loss of revenue. He had never cared about turning a profit though. His only goal was to make people happy. He built a strong community around the cafe Hed even give out free meals to those who could afford it. Then the day it closed, people lined up for blocks to give flowers. They really loved that place
I know we need to do well to keep our employees paid, but I cant help but think weve lost something important. I mean, Takakura-san seems to only be focused on profits At this rate, well never lose our black image.
Oh, I get it!
Its really not that funny. Please dont laugh so hard, its embarrassing.
You were trying to cheer me up, werent you ? Thanks for that. *sigh* I think what I really need is to get stronger. I mean, I can act tough in front of my employees but you know how weak I am inside.
Dont use words like weak. I prefer delicate. Like a beautiful, pure cinnamon roll.
Before I can really determine who I trust, I first need to know what it means to have others trust in me. So, Im going to get stronger strong enough for you and the others to rely on me!
I mean, you already shoot things to death with a grenade launcher. Strength isnt really the issue.
I can sense a firm resolve from Haru...
Im not great at public speaking and even just giving my opinion makes me a little nervous
S-Sugimura-san !? What are you doing here?
I was just heading home from a business engagement when I saw you from my car window.
! Youre one of those brats from before
Yeah, you kicked my cat into a wall, motherfucker.
Um, this is a friend from school. Hes helping me look for some books today. Anyway, we should be getting back to our shopping. Please excuse us.
Oh yeah? And what about the contract I made with your father?
A contract could never hold the same weight
Are you sure about that? Think about the reparations clause. If you back out of the deal now, you will lose everything you own. Okumura Foods, your estate
Even so, I
And what about your employees? Are you really willing to put their jobs on the line for the sake of your selfishness?
Sounds like this reparations clause is really fucking sweeping, eh? Why would Okumura ever have agreed to this, even if he was absolutely certain it would never be invoked?
Besides, this marriage is exactly what Okumura Foods needs right now. My father would have no trouble managing your shares or sweeping away your companys tarnished image.
That reminds me, did Takakura-san tell you about the wedding hall? He got us the Phoenix Wing at the Wilton.
He made a provisional reservation for ten days this coming spring. After all, the sooner the better.
Well have to look into our guests schedules as well. Therell be over three hundred of them, you know. Takakura-san can handle Okumura Foods in the meantime. Why dont you go stop by the gym or something, Haru?
Okay, first, fuckin what the hell is wrong with this dude!? Second, how can you even tell if she needs to lose weight? Shes wearing the bulkiest sweater in the world.
Im out of here.
Sugimura leaves. What a fucking creep. And Maaku was completely silent for all of that, what a hero.
He has everything Fame, intelligence, manners
Manners!? He just called you fat!
The only thing he needs now is a wife he can control And I guess Im the perfect target. Hes going to get Okumura Foods as well as my entire inheritance and Im totally powerless against him
See, to me this just sounds really patronizing, but thats yet another example of Me Not Really Understanding The Tone Of A Dialogue Option!
For today though Im rather tired. Would it be OK if we parted here? Well, goodbye.
Music: Beneath the Mask
Akechi too. I cant believe theyre calling hi mthe detective of the century! Plus theyre treating the Phantom Thieves like criminals.
That side of things has faded a little bit though, dont you think?
Yes, all the talk of the elections must have made people forget about the suicide news.
The main culprit is dead, things are settled, and society can go on like normal. Thats probably what people are thinking
Hm. I have mixed feelings about all of this. Im not saying they should talk about us more, but the sudden change in momentum is weird
That second response says hasty, not nasty. I was staring at the image for a while and it didnt make any sense.
Everything up until the elections is the real battle! Lets take him down!
Well then, we can discuss this more tomorrow! Lets do our best!
I accidentally hit X near the coffee siphon and realized I had never gotten the Kawakami prompt, so here it is. Its just a brief explanation of how calling Kawakami to make coffee works.
Music: Dark Net
Tanakas got new goods! We buy one of each of the cheap 1000 yen items and leave.
Music: Beneath the Mask
As before, we really have no other choice but to try to do some menial tasks that wont really benefit us anymore at night, as there are no more night Confidants to advance. Here, Im just trying to get the trophy for reading all the books because why not, right?
Music: Break it Down (Elp Version)
Secret technique, huh? Sounds like something phantom thieves would use I think.
It was full of secret techniques for a bunch of games We could beat any video game we want now! Well, I guess its up to you whether you actually want to use any of these cheats.
Heres a fun thing that they dont tell you: if you actually try to use any of these cheats, Morgana goes oh, that wasnt very exciting, even though he was cool with it a second ago! Even for the dumb gambling game thats 100% luck! What a dick.
