Part 31: 5/18-5/19: The Most Adorable StalkerPart 30: 5/18-5/19: The Most Adorable Stalker
Lets just forget about the last updates unpleasantness.
Music: Tokyo Emergency
Come on, its time to get this mission started!
Cool detail here: the Mission Start logo casts a barely-visible shadow in the lower-right corner.
Um, what? This sounds like an annoying complication. I have to leave in the middle of a Palace infiltration?
But lets just leave for now.
Thats all for today?
Everyone knows whatevers been on TV. You could talk about the Madarame exhibit. Some witty wordplay, maybe an impersonation could work too. Just get their attention first, OK?
Fucking impressions? What, are you going to pick up chicks by appearing on SNL? These are the lamest pick-up artists ever.
Music: Tokyo Daylight
Hey, not so loud. Hes been showing up pretty regularly, so it looks like hell be sticking around.
I see, so is the thing about him having a criminal record not true, then?
I dont know, Im too scared to ask. Anyway, its probably best not to get too involved with him.
Looks like were still not gonna make many new friends here.
Y-Yes ! Kamoshida tricked people into thinking he was a hero, but he wasnt! Oh, and dont tell anyone my true identity. No one can know that Im a Phantom Thief!
This dude owns.
Over on the first floor, we find Uh...
...Excuse me for a moment, lets move somewhere a little less crowded.
...Yeah, okay, shes definitely following us while pretending to be reading that book.
I had heard you were quite the troublemaker, but you seem to be behaving yourself.
You are adorably bad at this.
Music: Butterfly Kiss
Has anyone ever studied the correlation between the rise in temperature and weirdos ? So, what are you here for today?
...Looks like I have a patient with an emergency.
Ive heard rumors about this place. Id like for you to examine her. She was diagnosed with bronchitis, but the medicine she was given hasnt been working at all. She has a fever that wont go away, and shes losing weight because shes not hungry
A young girl losing weight is definitely not good. You should go to a bigger hospital. I cant provide a thorough examination here.
Weve been going to a big hospital! A university hospital in East Shinjuku! But all they tell us is that its persistent bronchitis !
The doctor there performs exams like hes on an assembly line. I think hes famous or something
A famous doctor, huh ? Im just a general practicioner out here in the sticks. As you can see, I dont even have any staff.
W-Wait! Ive heard theres a medicine that can only be acquired here !
Back off, pal. I was here for that sweet, sweet panacea long before you were.
Please! Ill pay you! Please, at least just examine her!
*cough* *cough* Doctor My chest really hurts...
Is your vision blurry? How about your throat, does it hurt ? Hm. No signs of swelling. (To the father) Are you sure youve told me everything about her symptoms and treatments youve tried so far?
Yes, Im sure!
This is likely a reference to the Devil Social Link from Persona 4, who was a nurse named Sayoko Uehara.
Theres something Id like to ask him about a case that was in last months medical journal.
Takemi puts the phone away.
I see. Guess the ones in stock will have to do...
Youll need to help me administer the medicine. Also, bring the beaker with the red label in the fridge, a towel, was basin, and measuring spoon...
Music: Butterfly Kiss
It was a very unique strain of an infectious disease. It cant be detected by conventional exams. I temporarily suppressed the symptoms. Well make adjustments as her condition improves. OK, thatll be one million yen for today.
A-A million yen !? Th-Thats outrageous! Youre completely taking advantage of I mean, all right I agreed to pay. You dont take credit cards do you? Ill go withdraw some cash right now!
By the way, that famous doctor you mentioned earlier Was it Medical Chief of Staff Oyamada?
Yes are you familiar with him?
...I knew it. In that case, Ill make this free of charge.
...By the way, thanks to your outburst earlier Im going to perform a very special exam on you today...
So, is he your assistant? He seems awfully young...
Yes, my assistant guinea pig. Hes about to put in a LOT of hard work today. Arent you?
Please help me.
It feels like my bond with Takemi is growing even deeper...
Um, Doctor ? Can I go back to school now?
Not for a while. You need to start eating and regain your strength first. Can you do that for me?
Yes! Thank you, Doctor!
Dont mention it
Maybe you wont even be able to make it home...
I feel like cooperating in that shady clinical trial has increased my Guts...
Maaku gains Guts +1.
OK, good work today.
Music: Beneath the Mask
Shut up Morgana, we cant do that yet.
...Another box came for you.
...What did you get?
Recently, personal info stored by several domestic companies was decrypted and leaked online. Hundreds of thousands of peoples info is believed to be leaked, and many are voicing their anxiety. According to experts, there is a high chance that an international group of hackers is involved...
So someone stole all that personal information about all those people ? Wow.
The worlds fucked up. Theres no joke here, only the quiet dread of having to continue to interact with this hellfucked species for yet another day.
Whaaat? But I want to watch TV. Theres a special on that guy they call a Detective Prince, Akechi.
Itll still be on the news. You can watch at home. That pretty boys been on TV a lot lately. You can see his face any time, actually. Well, thanks for the coffee.
Music: Break it Down (Elp Version)
...The flavor profile is bland. You should practice more to bring out the roasts full potential.
You see a lot of different customers come through when you have a cafe like this. Even if someone looks like trouble, Ill serve them the same cup of coffee I serve everyone else. Thats my job. I have pride in what I do. Youre like a customer, too. One that takes a tremendous amount of effort. You have the potential, so keep training.
Music: Beneath the Mask (Instrumental Version)
...I hope you understand.
Whats there to understand? Youre blackmailing us so my friend will get naked for you. Simple.
I warn you. Dont involve yourself any further.
Dont play dumb. Im saying youre an inconvenience. I wont forgive you if you continue making a mockery of my sensei. Am I clear? This is a warning.
Music: Beneath the Mask -Rain (Instrumental Version)
It looks kinda dumb...
I didnt realize you could actually examine this until I tried again.
But todays the day. Lets head into the Palace next time, because its gonna be really long and I couldnt find a good place to split that update up to include part of it in this one.
