Part 68: 7/11: Thanks RadiumPart 66.5: 7/11: Thanks Radium
And here's the rest of the update.
Anon: omg they got the mafia lol
Music: Beneath the Mask (Instrumental Version)
I didnt expect the Phantom Thieves would suppress a man that even the police had trouble with. The fact they have so much support online is worrisome. Im in a bind since I previously denounced them. All the interviews these days ask me about that. ...Still, can we really say the Phantom Thieves are on the side of justice with just this example?
Haha, thank you. But I notice that youre not saying that the Phantom Thieves are right. ...I suppose that was an unfair way to phrase it. I was originally investigating the mental shutdown incidents. ...Dont you think its similar to the change of heart that the Phantom Thieves are doing? Now that I think about it, their actions mirror the mental shutdown cases, with the rate of victims. Its impossible not to see a connection there ...Ah, sorry. I dont want to make you late. Ill see you again.
My god, this dude can talk your ear off.
Shibuya Crime Ring Reveals All! The leaders confession has led to the arrest of other key members. Sudden Rampage? Highway Accident! The drivers death has been confirmed, taking the total count up to four. Hotspots of Tokyo! Come see the summer fireworks show on July 18th!
Thanks to Kaneshiro spilling the beans, that organization is falling like a house of cards. Hehehe Were getting more and more famous!
Music: So Boring
In this internet society, every silly little thing gets its five minutes of fame. But just like a fleeting firework, they are destined to be forgotten once summer ends. Now that I think about it, theres an organism that has its own short-lived glimmer. Thats rightfireflies. Theyre probably something akin to magic creatures to you city kids. Hamiru-kun. You havent been completely tainted by city life yet, so heres a question. What is the name of the light-producing substance in fireflies?
I picked the one with Lucifer in the name.
Correct. When luciferin combines with oxygen, it undergoes oxidation and emits light. A firefly cannot cry, so it burns its body or so they say. Their light is actually a chemical reaction called a cold lightit doesnt produce heat like fire.
Uhh, the second law of thermodynamics would like a word with you.
Maaku gains Knowledge +1.
We ranked up in Knowledge just in time for finals!
Now that I think about it, theres a fireworks show next week. It may not be a bad idea to go see them. However, dont become so blinded by the far-off lights that you cant see the exams in front of you.
I wanna go relax somewhere after exams end!
Finals end on the 16th, so that should be good, right?
What are you talking about?
Ill do that tomorrow.
Hey, were in the middle of class. Talk about those things later.
Music: Tokyo Daylight
It looks like they saved me again. I guess Ill become a fan of the Phantom Thieves, after all.
I hope Akechi-kun isnt too shocked from all the backlash hes been getting online Ill still believe in Akechi-kun, though! I mean, hes so handsome! Like, ridiculously handsome!
I suppose Ill ask you this too, just in case. Who do you think will be their next target?
Well, if they want a bigger target, maybe the government? Thatd be really interesting. I have no idea what theyll do next. Im a bit excited, but its also kind of scary.
I see So rather than acting right away, theyre carefully observing society for now? It might also be that the criminals have been scared into hiding by the Phantom Thieves.
She says she knit her boyfriend a scarf, which made him super happy. Maybe thats you, Ikesugi-kun?
Ah, stop it That scarf freaked me out, so I threw it away. Thats only a coincidence.
Maybe you should ask that genius detective Akechi-kun to get to the bottom of this? Juuust kidding.
Oh, wait When I marry him, Ill be Yumeko Ikesugi *giggle* Ill post online about anyone who gets in my way. And theyll bleed! Itll be a blood storm!
Well, we found our target.
People are all about them right now. I totally voted YES in that online poll!
Yeah, I think Akechi-kun mightve jumped the gun a little by saying theyre dangerous.
They should team up and take out Tokyos trash together!
Heroes like them must get all the girls. Maybe Ill quit basketball to join the Phantom Thieves.
The Phantom Thieves are just a fad! Youre not seriously thinking of quitting your team, are you!?
I just dont think its gonna work out. There arent many talented people I can get to join our team.
Be careful not to spread weird rumors. Students should concentrate on studying, anyway.
Oh, crap! Its almost finals! I dont want to fail and have to take remedial classes. I wonder if the Phantom Thieves can steal test questions. Hahaha! Nah, thatd be impossible!
Heh Who could have known that Kaneshiro had that up his sleeve ? I can hear the peoples cries for a hero to fight evil But for now, let me rest a bit Heh.
Yeah, Im not doing too shabby. People really fall for these too-good-to-be-true stories. Just butter em up a little, and its a cinch. There are so many gullible people everywhere!
Its up to you to protect whats really important. You cant take risks in these dangerous times. But what can you do to protect yourself? Dont worryour security systems are the answer! Please contact our company for installation services!
What are the police doing, letting those fishy Phantom Thieves steal their thunder!?
He was still arrested in the very end. It all worked out, didnt it?
Come on Can you really trust someone who hides their face like that!?
Hmm Im not sure. It seems like they only fight the bad guys.
Kotaro says he likes them!
Oh, really? They must be good guys then.
Theres been a running subplot with this kid and her sick dog that Ive been skipping because its both not terribly relevant and also because its pretty depressing.
*grunt* This too is thanks to the power of the Sun God and his blessing of the Phantom Thieves.
Um, I dont mean to dispute you, Sun God, but I thought your power was weak during the rainy season?
Th-The power of the Sun God cuts through the darkness! Heal your battle wounds, my apostles...
I see. No comment then, hm? He is so pessimistic about the countrys future that he sees no point in sharing his opinion! And that concludes our on-the-spot coverage.
Im the romantic phantom thief, here to steal your heart The Love Thief of Pounding Hearts!
Love Thief of Pounding Hearts ? Isnt that a bit corny?
Idiot, thats the point! Just give it a try!
I completely support the Phantom Thieves now. Hopefully they bring more bad apples to justice!
I can only imagine what the police are doing. They havent seemed very reliable.
I agree. Although Im sure theyre reevaluating how they handle crime prevention.
Everyone runs away as soon as they see my face, but Im not really sure why Hey, can I ask you something? Do you think its possible that someones personality could change overnight ? No, sorry. Never mind...
Dont trust the cops. The real calling card was posted online!
I guess it doesnt really matter who did it, as long as theyre getting rid of the bad guys.
Youre so nonchalant, as usual...
Hes been talking about Egypt and stuff But is he really working on deals with people overseas?
Is it because of Medjed? That thing on the internet, right?
Yeah, that! He was getting frustrated about being stuck at work since he cant take his computer home anymore.
Well, weve got five requests on deck, so next time were gonna go take care of them. Mementos update! Fuck!
