Music: Beneath the Mask (Instrumental Version)
This will be a stressful turn of events
But Ive never had her do anything like that before. Is she gonna be OK?
This isnt the same as taking care of a cat, you know?
D-Dont worry. I did graduate middle school last year I-Ill be fine if I just think of this as my first summer job of high school!
Well in that case how about you wash the dishes? Just dont push yourself too hard, OK?
Hey, are you all right?
Phrase de blague mal traduite créée en ligne.
Man, smooth as always. What number Bond girl is this, Boss?
Its not like that.
You usually go for the older ones, right? Its only natural youd want someone younger sometimes.
Even ignoring the bit where this guy doesnt know Futabas his daughter, this motherfuckers basically going, Congrats on banging the fifteen-year-old, dude! Can we kick this dudes ass already?
Its like the Guatemala Peaberry coffee. Its acidic sweetness is akin to a breath of fresh air.
Sorry, were serving a blend today.
Not quite what I had in mind, but something, nonetheless.
Yo, heres your coffee.
When in the world did she Hey, Futaba. Havent I told you not to show up in front of people with that damn thing on? And be more polite when youre bringing something to a customer.
H-H-Here is your coffee sir.
Huh. Turns out this is pretty easy.
To think Futabad go out and talk to a customer herself Mask aside, Im impressed. Looks like people really can change.
Sojiro! Want me to bring coffee to more customers?
Mask off first.
H-Hrghhh Ill think about it.
Music: Beneath the Mask
Like hell wed do that!
Why the question?
I overheard someone in the city saying theyre our acquaintance.
Talk about false rumors.
So she showed up in front of customers with that thing on
Anyways, you better get used to it fast. You cant be a phantom thief if youre scared of people!
Ill try my best.
They have stated they are investigating it carefully, with no mention of the Phantom Thieves. Many people have voiced their disappointment in the police, and
The police really lost a lot of face. Its really not their fault, though.
How is it not their fault? They didnt do shit!
Ive been waiting for you! You wont believe what happened!
Now, please take a seat
Music: Alright (Elp Version)
I even managed to use my own powers to alter some fates that had once seemed inevitable ! I suppose all you really need to change fate is a strong will, like what you have. I wish I could do more though
Ive been wondering why are you so interested in Mifune-kun?
And thats why you volunteered to apprentice under her? You must be quite a big fan That aside, I have to commend your judgment in choosing Mifune-kun. Her fortunes are like a light, guiding lost lambs through the unending darkness ahead.
By the way, Hamiru-san This man here is Fukurai-san. Hes, um the chairman of the ADP. Oh right, you dont know about the ADP yet! It stands for...
Our goal is to relieve the hearts and minds of todays weary souls via healing events and seminars.
Uh-oh. I wikid the ending of the Gourmet King Social Link from P3, and Im hip to your bullshit, old man. This sounds weirdly culty!
We also sell Holy Stones, the well from which our divine power springs. They are a large part of our business.
That reminds me, Yokoda-kun was telling me youve been acting a little strange recently. More importantly, it seems youve started falling behind on your Holy Stone sales quotas. Is everything OK?
Y-Yes. Ill cover the decrease in revenue with my fortune-telling fees Um, Fukurai-san I, um Im not sure how effective these Holy Stones really are
Do you remember who showed you the way when you arrived here from the countryside, lost and confused? Do you remember who saved you when you were stuck working in a seedy club with no place to turn? It was me. Are you saying you no longer have trust in someone whos done so much for you?
Th-Thats not it
Then enough of this skepticism. Just focus on continuing your role as the Maiden of Relief. Read the futures of those unfortunate souls who come to us and lead them to salvation with the Holy Stones
Hmph. There is no salvation for those who joke.
You dont want things to go back to how they were do you, Mifune-kun? Dont you remember breaking down in front of me? Telling me how everyone called you a monster? If you dont carry your weight as the Maiden of Relief, youll be exactly that A monster.
...Fine. If you want to spend your time fooling around with this child, go right ahead. But dont forget, Mifune-kun: The ADP is the only place youll ever belong.
I-Ive never actually worked at a night club! I did get tricked into walking into one though Anyway, the chairman is known for exaggerating details. You must think Im weird, huh? All this talk about me being a maiden or a monster
By the way, it was pretty amazing how we stood up to the chairman back there.
I would never have been able to talk to him about the Holy Stones had I been alone But your strength helped me speak up. I need to be strong like you more often
I can sense a strong resolve from Chihaya...
Even so, the chairman seems serious about the whole Holy Stone issue. Hell make me pay a fine if I dont meet my quotes and theres a huge penalty for resigning from my post I suppose my fate is impossible to change after all Anyway, I should close up for today! Good night!
That would be awesome! Why not make a request on the forum?
That Akechi is all talk, isnt he?
Why is he so hostile toward the Phantom Thieves?
Right!? Some people just cant read the mood
Anon: cmon, next!
Anon: Now everyone can be happy!
Anon: i bet its worldwide news
Anon: so popular im jelly
Anon: I knew it!!! hahaha
Anon: Thanks, Phantom Thieves!
Anon: destroy all evil!
Music: Beneath the Mask (Instrumental Version)
Huh? Do we not have anything planned ?
Honestly, I wanted to bring Futaba along with us
We cant just take her into crowds like that though! Thatd be way too soon!
Sometimes drastic measures are necessary.
Such spiky words
You know youd need to do this someday, right?
Actually, Queens clothes have lots of spikes too. Theyd prolly pierce my hand if I touched them.
I have honestly considered that possibility as well.
You too, Yusuke!?
Hey this sounds like fun. I wanna join in.
Were talking to Futaba! This doesnt involve you!
Note: Ann is cold to Ryuji.
Dont take notes on this Anyway, look forward to us coming over!
My hearts pounding
...Just what are they scheming?
Hey, miss! Want me to steal your heart?
Is that a pick-up line? Dont make me laugh.
Apparently theyre even famous overseas! Isnt that nuts?
I wish I could join the Phantom Thieves...
Anon: phantom thieves = godly!!
Anon: I have to accept it now
Anon: better than the cops
Anon: A landmark win for justice!
Anon: Leave everything to them~
Anon: So who ARE these heroes?
Anon: The world needs to see this!
Anon: justice was w/the thieves.
Anon: hey steal my heart too!!
Music: Break it Down
Hrmm I dunno. I cant really tell.
People cannot change their deep-seated habits that easily.
Well, lets just say youve made some progress for now.
Ack! S-Stop it! Youre gonna pull my cheeks off!
Man, those girlsre late. Who do they think they are, makin us wait like this?
Please excuse us.
Looking? Looking at what ?
A swimsuit, of course. For Futaba-chan.
You dont have one, do you?
OK. Lets have you try it on right now then.
You cant go to the beach if you dont have a good-fitting swimsuit. We dont have much time left, you know.
Uh, but Ummm Uhhhh !
Music: My Homie
I know, right? ...There we go. Its on.
What the!? This barely covers anything!
Thats normal for a swimsuit. Now, we just need to push these a little more this way
Are you supposed to move them with that much force ?
You gotta put some oomph into this stuff There! Good to go!
Whoa, even Im impressed !
You guys obviously cant see it, but Im vigorously rubbing my temples right now.
I wonder what theyre doin up there.
Theyre having her try on the swimsuit, right? What else could they be doing?
Futaba in a swimsuit, hm ? I suspect that would make a great painting. Perhaps we should ask Makoto about it?
I humbly request you do so as well.
You guys are such children.
Yeah, were goin to the beach pretty soon so theyre trying some swimsuits out.
Futabas going to the beach I didnt think Id ever see her take that much interest in going outside again
Well then, it seems were good to go with the swimsuit.
All flattery aside, I think it looks really great! Now you just gotta get rid of those round shoulders. Come on, straighten out your back.
She might be some trouble, but I hope she can make some great memories with you guys.
Music: Beneath the Mask -Rain-
All thats left is for Futaba to prepare herself mentally.
I can do this. I can I think. Maybe.
So youre not confident.
I doubt its anything good.
That said, we dont have enough information right now Well need to investigate more.
Ill help out too.
Can we talk about this some other time? Im so damn sleepy
OK, good night then! Futaba-chan, good luck tomorrow too!
We need to work harder to help Futaba make some good memories.
Actually, never mind. It would be weird for me to wear clothes. Wait a second Does that mean Im naked right now?
Sooner or later, we need to decide what we want to do from here on out.
After the commercial break, lets see if we can reveal some of the mysteries surrounding them!
Phantom Thieves are extremely popular among young people. I hear some even think of them like gods.
Heres something we forgot to do: set up that game console we bought at the second-hand store a while back!
Were not actually going to play it yet, but whatever.
Why dont you sit and wait it out? Im sure you brought me some good info, right? The higher-ups are starting to get tired of one-off articles. You have anything good to share?
All right, lets hear it.
Wait, were talking about Akechi? Im only like Confidant Rank 2 with the guy, I really dont know much about him! And what could she possibly be learning about him from me that she couldnt find out by turning on the television?
I see Oh yeah Theres something I need to apologize to you about. You know, its part of my job to research particular things. Well, um I ended up finding out about your criminal record.
Whoops, Confidant over, guess were not a reliable source anymore!
I realized you werent just some ordinary kid back with my chief So I did some digging out of curiosity and I found a ton more than I was expecting. So sorry about that. I have to say though, the ruling made in your case was really odd. Some kind of deal must have gone down behind the scenes to make sure that was the end result. That mustve been tough for you to handle. Youre just a kid
Exactly. Im going to avenge my partner for-- ...Whoops. Lala-chan, refill!
No. Its your turn to tell the truth. You cant go rooting around in the kids past and expect to keep your own secrets hidden.
W-Wait, dont blame me for that! He doesnt have anything to do with my private business
I mean, its not like I dont trust you and hold on a sec! Why am I getting treated like the bad guy!?
Look, youre gonna feel way better talking to someone who understands exactly what youre going through. Besides, youll explode if you keep all that alcohol-fueled anxiety bottled up in you.
Thats true. And I guess this is the fairest course of action for our business partnership, huh? Just dont tell anyone, OK? Back when I covered politics for my publisher, I had a partner who helped with photography Kayo Murakami. We were a pretty well-known team in the industry. We blew the lids off countless scandals together. ...That is, until that day came.
We were on the trail of a certain bureaucrat, who was involved in a slush fund to support refugees. He kept himself pretty well guarded, so it was almost impossible to get any solid leads on the guy Then one night, I got a voicemail from Kayo saying she had gotten hold of something big. But that was the last I ever heard from her. The next day, that bureaucrat was found dead at a love hotel and Kayo had gone missing.
The cause of death is unknown The authorities couldnt tell whether it was a murder or a suicide.
Where have I heard that before?
As for the killer...
Wait, if they didnt know if it was a murder or a suicide, how did they accuse her of killing him?
Thats impossible though! She never would have slept with a disgusting man like that!
Right, because she was your partner. I think I see where this is going.
And more importantly, its pretty damn fucked up to make allegations like that without any evidence!
...Sorry. The case was closed, but we never found the truth . And Kayo was labeled a professional disgrace. And since we were partners, the company decided it would be best to move me to another department. Im going to prove Kayos innocence though. Thats why Im conducting my own private investigation now.
But thanks to all the info youve been giving me, I should have more time to focus on my investigation. I wont let this opportunity slip through my fingers. ...All right, were even now! I didnt enjoy it though.
You sure about that? Its been ages since Ive seen you smile this much.
W-Well maybe youre right. I havent felt this alive in a long time. OK then, Ill write a great article to commemorate our sharing session! Exclusive: The Phantom Thieves Lofty Ideals in Connection with a Secret Society! Haha, just kidding! Dont worry, Ill definitely come up with a better headline before we go to print!
I feel like my bond with Ohya is growing deeper...
Still theres just one thing that bothers me. Theres no doubt the chief is on to my investigation. Maybe we should keep acting like a couple so we can trick him. Hows that sound?
Please dont make me your beard.
Oh, leave the kid alone. (to Maaku) Hey, its getting late. Shouldnt you be heading home by now?
Anon: modern day robin hoods~
Lets see Wanna eat together? Yknow, like how we had hot pot that one time.
That may be a good idea. Itll be a great way to strengthen our intrasquad friendships.
I-I can do that!
OK, Ill take a cola and an omelette with rice. Oh, and make that a large please.
Id like the same.
No, but this is for Futabas sake.
...Fine. You owe me, got it?
I want the same. Extra large.
This is around the point that I noticed Futaba sits like L for some reason.
Damn, Futaba! Im impressed!
Indeed, your appetite is quite nice to see. I much prefer that to women who dont eat a lot.
...Youd better not be hitting on me.
Sojirooo, help meee!
Will you stop that!?
Lets go with that then
I want iced cocoa!
(to Ryuji) You cant handle bitter stuff either, right? Iced cocoa sound good?
Yeah, definitely! Extra cold, please!
Hm, I dont think weve ever had a lunch this exciting.
Music: Beneath the Mask -Rain-
Does it look like she can go soon?
Well, she HAS started to talk a lot more.
Shes made great progress compared to how she was at the beginning.
Thoughts, Futaba? Will you be able to do this tomorrow perhaps?
I should be good if its the day after tomorrow. I think?
Well go the day after tomorrow then!
I was gonna photoshop Futabas head onto the Statue of Liberty from the poster for The Day After Tomorrow but it would have looked really shitty and also Im lazy.
Just let us know if you arent up for it, Futaba. OK?
Its all right. I can do this.
Looks like we know when well actually finish up now. The beach is finally within reach!
Time to feed the plant.
Maaku gains Kindness +3.
People continue to praise the Phantom Thieves, who are thought to have prevented the attack. The Phantom Thieves popularity, which began online, is expanding beyond the internet. Phantom Thieves have become a social phenomenon, with everyone around town talking about them.
Everyones really talking about us! Its like we hit the big time!
Lets read the book we bought at Book Town.
Music: Break it Down (Elp Version)
Learning about the spirit of the samurai seems useful, but this book looks difficult
