Part 222: Addendum XI: Getting SwoleAddendum XI: Getting Swole
First up on todays agenda: we actually managed to get Sojiros Rank 10 scene before he finds out were Phantom Thieves. It doesnt change much, but I figured I should show it anyway.
Hifumi Rank 9: Part 119: 10/5
Spending time with me has only brought you pain
Hifumi is thinking hard I should be careful about what I say here
...So this is goodbye.
Youre just trying to comfort me because I lost, right ?
P-Please stop Im the Phony Princess I mean, I lied to everyone And yet, you want to be by my side ?
What do you mean by that ?
Music: Alright (Elp Version)
I will become a woman whos worthy of you. I-I look forward to our relationship blossoming i-in the many years ahead of us Oh, wh-what in the world am I saying ?
I formed a special relationship with Hifumi Theres no turning back now
Lets go to Akihabara with Mishima, I guess. I really question why these double Confidant events are even in the game, because you have no idea if youll need points with the second person because they dont tell you who it will be, and the first person is usually Mishima, who doesnt need points.
Well, Ill be waiting!
An electronics shop, huh? Its kind of exciting going to a big store like that. Lets go meet up with Mishima.
Music: Home Electronics Store
Dont you think you should have something like that, as a modern day hero?
Come on, you dont have to play dumb! You can trust me! Like I was saying! Having convenient tools would help you, dont you think? You know Wouldnt it be super cool to complete your missions with top secret technology? And then I could become your sidekick and support you! Your sidekick That would be so cool !
Yes, thats me.
Why? How!? Where did you meet her!? You know Chihaya-chan!? I knew you were amazing!
Never got the impression Chihaya was famous, but okay.
...Anyway, Hamiru-san. Do you know where they sell TVs? My CRT stopped working. I think its broken
C-CRT !? The famous fortune teller still uses old-- I-I mean, you must take good care of your things.
Nice save, Mishima.
Umm Is this your friend?
Hmm thats not it He seems like more of a fanboy rather than a friend
What? Really? You can tell just by looking at me!? Can you even see my future!?
No, I cant. At least, not without my tarot cards, anyway. But I do keep a careful eye on my clients, so I can predict lots of things just by observing people. Hmm But what is it about Hamiru-san that makes you such a fanboy though?
Oh, no! Well, actually Hamiru is really knowledgeable about consumer electronics! He knows everything! I respect him!
Oh, is that so? What great timing, then! Could you help pick out a new TV for me?
Well then, lets look for the TV section!
Man, that was exhausting Lets go home for today.
I want to do a lesson in your room Is that all right?
Is there such a thing as getting too much sex, asking for a friend

There were a lot of people who covered for me by saying that I was just being used by adults. But Im the one who was most at fault. I was overconfident.
If only I had taken a look at myself and properly assessed my shogi skills. I believed that with my skills, I could overcome being treated like an idol. ...Theres nothing I can say about my mother. You didnt abandon me, even after you learned about the fixed matches ...Now I know how encouraging it feels to have someone believe in you. At first, this was just a deal You help me develop new moves and I give you shogi lessons. But before I knew it, you became someone I couldnt do without. Im not gonna pay attention to all the criticism anymore.
The reason Im able to think this way is because you stuck by my side. ...Im really grateful.
I feel a strong bond with Hifumi...
I spoke to you about my mother, and then my mother changed I knew that couldnt be a coincidence.
I will support you in whatever you want to accomplish.
Well I no longer have a ban on dating
We played a long match, just the two of us...
We still have to go back through this fucking Palace. Even if it only takes about an hour and a half, thats still way too fucking long.
On the other hand, copious amounts of Hassou Tobi get us through the boss fight in under five minutes. How nice.
Weve hit the upper limits of our gym training, unfortunately. Well get only minuscule gains here from now on.
So, we decide to continue our training at home. We only get HP, no SP, but whatever.
You may also notice that the in-game timer has gone back, here! Well one of my recordings didnt save audio, so I had to rerecord the entire month of September to get some unimportant videos made! And then I managed to salvage the original footage, so it was totally unnecessary in the first place! Whoops! Whatever, we spent that time getting strong, so you might as well see the progression of Maakus pull-up routine.
...*snicker* This is more fun than I thought.
This doesnt seem like itd be that much harder!
Maaku is basically Captain fucking America.
Now that weve seen all that, lets make some coffee.
Coffee Dad is Best Dad.
Chihaya Rank 9: Part 140: 11/10
Is fortune-telling the only reason you come to see me? I-Its not is it?
Lets just go all the way with this.
Music: Alright (Elp Version)
Hearin you say that was just so gosh dang sudden though
Sorry, I slipped back in to my country dialect But, um
The tarot cards might be shocked about this though My love fortune has been at zero for ages now. But I guess were pretty good at changing fate, huh? *giggle*
Theres no turning back
Oh, its getting late But, um do you think we could maybe talk a little longer ? Well good night, Hamiru-san
Aww yiss, motha fuckin ninjas
Back to the Ninja
Welp, lets get in there!
Ninja voice: Aaaaargh! My sandal has come undone! *sounds of shouting and martial arts* Youre too slow! Unless you can move at the speed of light, youll never be able to go back to the future!
Can they say that? You know, legally?
But I guess its somewhat educational with all the science incorporated in there [/i]
I feel like I was able to learn about the fun side of science
Maaku gains Knowledge +3.
Yknow, sci-fis more than just some crazy made-up baloney. Its like a dream that might end up coming true one day. I guess its almost like hope! You get me?
In any case, thanks for chilling! Um This was way more fun than all those times Ive seen it alone. Hmm, maybe we can have a foreign sci-fi marathon in your room someday! You better be looking forward to it!
Oh believe me, I am.
Y-You have to hear this!
A-Anyway! It seems like well have really good luck if we visit a certain place together! L-Lets go!
Music: Sunset Bridge
As a country bumpkin, Ive always admired it
No. I somehow felt like I wasnt allowed to. ...Because I was a monster. But, its all good now! I will no longer be swayed by names like monster or Maiden. I am simply a fortune teller who provides advice to people with broken spirits. So that they will have conviction and face their future without getting pushed around by fate. ...Thats the fate Ive chosen for myself!
Now, its your turn to speak. What would your conviction be as a phantom thief?
Sorry, I used fortune-telling to find out your true identity. I couldnt help but think that you had something to do with the chairmans confession. Then I discovered that youre the Trickster who causes a sensation in the world. It was the same card as the figure who helped me take down the chairman.
Well, you may interpret the cards however you like
As long as youre around I can always be my true self. So, its fine. Only the fate of the Phantom Thieves is rather unclear. The arcana is set in a tricky position. You can almost say its facing both heaven and hell This is the first time Ive ever seen anything like it.
Of course! Were dating, you know? ...But Im sure itll be OK!
As the fortune teller who changes fates, I will guide you so you can avoid misfortune!
I feel a strong bond with Chihaya
Are you OK with your girlfriend being a country bumpkin ? Its become a habit of mine to hide my native tongue And Im not used to fancy places like this
Ah Im speaking in my country dialect again Um
So lets figure it out together
I spent a long time with Chihaya
I somehow prefer it when they dont feel the need to constantly remind us how weird and awful the situation of dating an adult is.
