Music: Beneath the Mask (Instrumental Version)
Hey, are you there? Sorry, but I need your help with the dishes.
Help with the dishes!
Is Futaba here, too? That means were not only helping out at the cafe, but were also babysitting Futaba today too Well, the faster we get started the faster well finish!
Music: Break it Down
Orange juice. 100% natural.
(to Maaku) That reminds me, youre going to the beach tomorrow, yeah? Go have fun, and make up for the fireworks. Just try not to cut loose too much.
Oh yeah, you wouldnt know. He tried to go to a firework festival, but it got rained out. Not only did he get crushed in the crowd, but he came home looking like some kinda drowned rat.
YOU COME INTO MY HOME
(to Maaku) Oh! Youre
Music: Wicked Plan
Huh? You know each other? Wait, arent you
Oh yeah, the one on TV and stuff. So what brings you here, Mr. Detective?
This place is more than I imagined it to be. The atmosphere is wonderful. No wonder Sae-san recommended it so strongly to me.
I already told her everything I know. Theres nothing more I got for you people.
Oh no, thats not my intention. I just came to enjoy some coffee.
Oh, you must be Wakaba Isshikis
Ill have whatever you recommend.
Coming right up.
Dude, Sae told you what she did last time she was here. Why the hell would you think Sojiro would be hospitable?
...Did I bother you? My apologies. Apparently, my mother was in a relationship with some low-life of a man
She was swiftly discarded when he learned she was pregnant That despair would lead to her death.
I did not ask.
Thanks to him, I was passed from foster home to foster home. But, I do quite well by myself these days.
Good for you, buddy. Id ask how you managed to gain enough of a good education and whatever else you needed to become a fucking police detective at the age of seventeen from those circumstances, but that never made sense in the first place and also I really dont care.
Ah, yes. Medjed. ...To thinks theyd be taken down by another hacker.
What is up with all the non-sequiturs, man? Is your brain a fucking View-Master, just randomly switching from subject to subject as if by the whims of a small, impatient, easily bored child?
Im not sure whether Medjed was defeated by the Phantom Thieves themselves or an avid supporter
Many kids your age seem to be fans of the Phantom Thieves Do you like them too?
Whats the matter?
*chuckle* Thank you. Although Id rather not be compared to people like the Phantom Thieves, if at all possible.
Mm, this is delicious. You get to drink this coffee every day? Im incredibly jealous. I would never have thought youd be boarding at this cafe We seem to share some kind of bond.
Ehhh I guess.
*chuckle* Thank you. I believe that fate brings people together. Its strange, but talking to you is thought-provoking. Well I think I found my go-to cafe.
I feel like my bond with Akechi is growing deeper...
I always change the channel when I see him.
All he ever does is nitpick.
Theres no way the Phantom Thieves are the bad guys!
Hes so desperate. Its kinda lame.
Music: Beneath the Mask
Im outside Leblanc.
Music: Alright (Elp Version)
Can we? I bought some.
Mm-hm. I ran into Mona on the way back though.
If she can do that, she should be good to go. Plus she did a great job dodging that ace detective.
Hold on, Futaba. I havent even put out my cigarette yet
Music: Break it Down (Elp Version)
Cmon, dont get the smoke on me!
Hey the cat doesnt like the smoke! Keep the flames away from him.
Daaaaaang! I made a huge one! Sojiro, look! Look!
R-Right. Just be careful, OK? Memories of summer, huh...
N-Nooo! *cough* *wheeze*
Aww. Thats legitimately one of the sweetest scenes in the game.
Music: Beneath the Mask
Ill be good on my own, yknow.
I only ask that you try not to get separated from each other in the crowd, OK?
No worries. Ive already made preparations for when that happens.
That dont make me feel better
Make sure you keep an eye on her. Its tough enough going solo, let alone watching over someone else. Still, going to enjoy the beach We can finally have a good time!
Air pressure continues to be high, and its expected that todays sunniness will continue tomorrow.
Looks like we dont have to worry about the weather! I cant wait for tomorrow!
She must have wanted you to see that. I guess good things can happen when you least expect them.
At least were almost done with aojiru buying. Maaku gains Kindness +1.
Meanwhile, I havent made any progress I cant have that, yo! Listen up, yo! Check out my Phantom Anthem! Say Phantom, say Anthem/Say Phantom, say Anthem/Phantom Thieves are on the rise/But mpopularitys takin a dive/They reached top, Im at a stop/Got mmoms back in the countryside/Big citys a hard place to reside/Passion in mhead, mess up Im dead/Say Phantom, say Anthem/Say Phantom, say Anthem/ How was it, mmain man? Wasnt my performance filled with passion?
Livin in the city costs a lot of dough, yo. Thats why I gotta become a big star!
I tried numerous times, but the Empress card keeps appearing. Last time, I felt that you were having trouble with women, but I sense something different now A-Anyway, please be careful Well then, what would you like to do today ?
Your fate is very interesting, so Id like to try a different fortune-telling technique Ive gone through all my books Maybe I need some that are out of print. Where I can [sic] find some ? Oh, never mind. Lets begin the verification test.
I dont think my bond with Chihaya will deepen just yet...
Maybe I should invite her to Book Town...
Jinbocho? Theres a lot of used bookstores there Its a bit far, but lets go! I wonder if the stores are still open
Music: Whats Going On?
Hmm, theres a lot here Which ones would be good as reference?
But since Ive never had, well, a normal job, I didnt know what to say sometimes. Those would definitely be worth reading!
With those, you feel like just reading them is enough. You end up not actually helping yourself. So I want to learn the ideas in these, and be able to express them to help my customers.
That used bookstores sign says Study of Destiny! Wh a fortune-telling specific shop!? Hamiru-san, lets go check it out!
I feel like my bond with Chihaya will grow stronger soon...
I feel like this place could feel like a second home Thank you so much for today.
Make sure you dont let any dudes try to hit on her.
Dont do anything thatll make you stand out, moron. Just act with your brains, OK?
Are you sure youll be all right?
Its just a day trip! Dont underestimate me!
R-Right Sorry. ...Guess I just have to let it go. Have fun, but be careful you two.
Beach (Dont watch this)
Music: New Beginning
Sorry for the wait.
I know its nothing on the level of some of Persona 4s awfulness in this regard, but jesus, keep it in your pants, Hashino.
Ann, at least, takes it like a champ. Almost uncharacteristically so, in fact.
Are we missing one ?
Oh these hi-larious antics the Phantom Thieves get up to, I tell ya!
Theres nothing perfect about that.
Ugh, this update was all cops and sexualizing minors. Deliver me from this summer hell.
