: “Ooh, a uniform!”
: “Make sure you study hard.”
: “Futaba says she’s going to shift to a morning person’s life.”
: “A healthy mission starts with a healthy lifestyle.”
: “Even the prime minister’s talking about the Phantom Thieves?”
: “They’re allies of justice, after all.”
: “They change hearts, huh? I wonder if it’s true.”
: “Looks like we’re finally being recognized across the country.”
: “That humility of yours is favorable. I bet you stole that from me, huh? Let’s find clues on that case as soon as we can too, and resolve it ourselves… for Futaba’s sake too.”
: “…You two really get along, don’t you? You’re gonna be late if you don’t get going soon.”
: “Good luck on your student duties.”
: Remember how Mishima told us there was a new feature on the site, but didn’t tell us what it is? That’s what it is.
: There’s another “walking to school” scene that repeats almost the exact same talking points so I’m going to skip it.
: “I think this every year, but isn’t summer vacation too short?”
: “How desperate are you?”
: “Let’s see. We’ve just gotten back from vacation, but starting next Monday is the school trip.”
: “Oh yeah, that’s right.”
: sigh “You students are so lucky. You get an entire month off for summer and get to go to Hawaii too. Make sure that none of you cut loose too much, okay?”
: You might be wondering why they’re going to Hawaii, and the answer is filler arc. It doesn’t make any kind of sense from a plot perspective - I think the entire reason they did it was to appease Western fans who claim that the SMT franchise is xenophobic.
: This as opposed to, I dunno, getting a creative department that can write something other than generic Japanese high school drama.
: “Okay, settle down! That concludes homeroom.”
: “Basically, yeah.”
: Wait, what. How does that make any sense? They basically just asked her “Hey Ann, you speak English?” and Ann replies “Yeah, I lived over there.”
: There’s an IM from Ryuji that didn’t capture correctly so I’ll just type it out.
: “All people’re talking about in my class is the Phantom Thieves. Is it the same for you? Talk about being popular. Anyways, now that a new semester has started, let’s have another operation meeting.”
: “Futaba! Did you come here by yourself?”
: “I went to get her since I got out of school early.”
: “What a patronizing Inari.”
: Hold on, wait a second. Why are they still at the walkway? Didn’t they abandon that in favor of just hanging out at Leblanc?
: “Well then, let’s get talkin’. Whadda we do now? Should we go after another big target?”
: “That’s important too, but what about that villain in the cognitive world?”
: “It’s almost certain that this person exists. What’s more, they’re inducing mental shutdowns… we certainly can’t turn a blind eye.”
: “Yeah, but we don’t got any clues… but! You know how we’re totes popular right now? Everyone at school’s talkin’ about us, and not a day goes by when you don’t hear about it on TV either!”
: “We totally made it big, don’tcha think?”
: “True. The rankings on the Phantom Aficionado website have been crazy too.”
: “You mean this?”
: “Huh? What the hell!? First place… keeps changing by the second!”
: Anyway, you’re going to see a lot of things that do not make any sense whatsoever in the next couple of in-game weeks. I have a feeling it’s because Atlus had no real plan for the latter half of the game and just kinda did the Ni No Kuni 2 thing and slapped scripts together.
: “If we go after these guys, I’m sure we’ll score some big cash at least once! What would you use money like that for, Akira?”
: “I’ve never heard of a phantom thief that saves up money!”
: Clearly, Ryuji has never played Payday 2.
: “Are you fine with that, Futaba? Even though it’s related to what happened to your mother?”
: “It’s not okay! I’m definitely gonna punch that guy!”
: “The culprit forcing mental shutdowns… if you think about it, there’s no bigger target than that. If we can change his heart and get a confession outta him, we’ll be on top of the world for real.”
: I thought about this line for a minute and realized that while it’s pretty obvious that the killer has a Persona, the game hasn’t outright said that yet.
: “Should we reveal our identities then? I bet chicks are gonna be all over us!”
: “Whoa, whoa, you want us to show our faces!? …I guess that might be okay?”
: “I see. If the true culprit confesses, the existence of the Metaverse will become known. There would be no need for us to remain in hiding in such a questionable manner…”
: “Being ‘unknown’ is the allure of being a Phantom Thief.”
: “But considering the hype now, it’s gonna be one hell of a huge deal if we pull it off!”
: “Are there really no clues regarding those mental shutdown cases? If I remember right, wasn’t the older Niijima sister investigating it?”
: I read a thing yesterday that I’m not sure is true that said that Akechi was initially intended to be Makoto’s brother. This was supposedly back when the script had Joker move in with Sae instead of Sojiro.
: “Yes… I can pry and ask about it. But she’ll just tell me to mind my own business and get angry with me.”
: “If you can’t ask her, wanna just extract that data? Does she have a personal laptop or something?”
: “Don’t tell me…”
: “Just stick this baby in, and it’ll clone the internal hard drive! It’ll even bypass the OS password! You’ll have to plug it directly into her laptop though. Can you do it?”
: “Sis does bring her laptop home sometimes… but I’m not comfortable going that far.”
: “Ooh, is Futaba gonna do something amazin’ again?”
: “Are you scared of seeing how your sister truly feels?”
: “No! …Of course not…fine, I’ll do it.”
: “But I gave a gag order in regards to Mr. Kamoshida’s case… p-please wait! Please give me some more time! I will find evidence on the Phantom Thieves for sure!”
: “I couldn’t have made it this far, had it not been for your assistance, sir, so… please… please let me-”
: “Let’s leave this to Makoto. I’m sure she’ll be able to pull it off.”
: The recycle shop now has a broken laptop and a new game for the Famiclone. We’ll grab both, even though we don’t really have a reason to.
: If we then head to Akihabara, there’s a machine parts store that sells a PC tool set we can use to fix the laptop. Fixing the laptop is something you have to do at night.
: Right down the street is this place - a blatant reference to Super Potato. Super Potato is a very famous retro game store in Akihabara.
: This store has all of the other games for the Famiclone. I cleaned the store out just because we had the money to do so.
: “I’ve been trying to use this as an opportunity to investigate into the ADP’s seminars so I can expose him… but the deeper I dig, the scarier everything becomes.”
: “The ADP apparently doesn’t profit very much from sales of the Holy Stones. It’s nothing more than a front. Most of their revenue comes from the seminars.”
: I joked about her being a Silent Hill character but she practically is, especially given the whole “drug cult” thing in SH1.
: “People have even gone missing after their seminars… families have been torn apart by this madness… and I… I was a part of it all.”
: “By selling these fraudulent stones, I was in direct support of their horrible actions. I know this doesn’t make up for what I’ve done… but I want to help the others come to their senses.”
: “Barely anyone within the ADP will talk to me though, and those who do won’t actually hear me out. What should I do, Kurusu-san…? These people are all heading down a path toward great ruin…”
: “Right. I’ll just have to admit to everything that’s been going on, even if I get dragged down too… that’s… the only way.”
: “I’m the only one who can stop him… right?”
: “O-Oh… hm, how strange… it seems the cards have changed somehow… my future is in line with that of the Trickster… what does that mean?”
: “Even so, my fate remains unchanged. I am destined to stay a monster… hm…”
: This is another one of those nights where we have to spend the entire night just to get a Mementos request.
: “I’ll have to think on this for a while. Let’s finish for today… well then, goodbye.”
: I spent last night replacing the battery in the PS3 controller I used for the Persona 1 and Innocent Sin LPs. It’s not bad until you get to the part where you put the case back together.
: “Oh yes. Thank you for the coffee last time. It’s a lovely cafe. I haven’t relaxed that much in a while.”
: “No, not particularly. Especially lately since it seems I’m hated by those who support the Phantom Thieves. Anyhow, it seems your school’s in trouble.”
: “The media is reporting that the whole school was involved in the cover-up about that gym teacher. Those unfortunate students were made victims all because adults valued their own conveniences…”
: “This is unforgivable, no matter the reason. Let me know if you need anything. I’ll do my best so that the case is wrapped up quickly.”
: “I don’t like the way they’re looking at us…”
: “D’you see that ad in the train?”
: “The media’s gonna come to our school. At least be a little interested in it. ‘Cover-up by faculty and principal of Shujin Academy, where the Phantom Thieves first appeared.’ It’s been a huge deal already.”
: “I wonder what’s gonna happen to the principal now. Anyways, we made the right choice goin’ after big targets! Everywhere I go, people’re talkin’ about us!”
: “Oh no, I’m fine.”
: “The Phantom Thieves are on fire right now, so I wonder if I got a chance if I asked her out? It sucks that I can’t just say I’m actually a phantom thief to anybody.”
: “Seriously, why does this keep happening? All my relatives are gonna call me again…”
: This shot reminds me of this one moment in 13 Sentinels Aegis Rim where they reveal that one of the characters is just an older, hornier version of a younger character from the future.
: “You know how the police have been coming to the school again because of that incident? So, a number of the senior faculty are going to be called in for questioning.”
: “And that day just happens to overlap with the school trip.”
: Basically, Hashino needed an excuse for Makoto to go to Hawaii. This isn’t even as ridiculous as this whole plot arc will get.
: “…Yes, I’ve been told so.”
: “Now, this came up at the faculty meeting, but the plan is to have third-years to act as our proxies. I’m so sorry to drop this on you, Niijima-san, but we’ll be counting on you.”
: …They’re going to have high schooler chaperoning high schoolers, and they want Makoto to buy tickets from Japan to Hawaii (which are not cheap, they’re like $980 to $1200) on short notice.
: This also makes it sound like Kawakami isn’t going. She absolutely is.
: Did Hashino ever go to high school?
: “You know… a lot of the second-years this year happen to be… unique.”
: They ignore uniform code, and have portraits and models that differ from the same one that’s used for every other student. I think they might be… JRPG protagonists.
: “You must have your hands full with the entrance exams, but I’m sure you’ll be fine with your grades. Don’t worry. There’ll be a couple more people going besides you!”
: “…If that’s the case, very well.”
: “Really? Oh thank goodness! I’ll go ahead and pass this news on then.”
: “I had nothing to do with it! Do you really think I have that much power? Okay, enough chitchat! If you’re that worried, you can always see our school counselor!”
: “Starting today, we’ll have Dr. Maruki on call. We went to the trouble of getting him, so don’t be afraid to ask!”
: I didn’t realize it, but Maruki leaves in the middle of July and doesn’t come back until today. However, we can’t progress his confidant until 09/20.
: “Yikes… the new semester’s barely started and things are already getting crazy…”
There’s a chalk dodge after this, which we have a 100% chance of getting and a 0% chance of it mattering because Charm and Proficiency are maxed.
: We won’t be seeing her again (outside of any automatic cutscenes) until after the base game’s ending.
: Starting I think today, there’s a number of John Persona themed items at the copyright-friendly Don Quixote (Rocinante is the name of Don Quixote’s horse) that we want to buy.
: Each of these items can be traded to Sakai for some very, very good shit - particularly the Phantom Wafers and Thief Mask.
: “Oh, that’s right. Um, well… sorry about what happened in Akihabara. I really messed up… that police officer… he was a way higher level than me…”
: I didn’t bother to show it to conserve space, but the reason we’re having all of this happen before initiating the actual confidant event is that Futaba’s confidant is locked behind Kindness 4.
: “Yeah… I guess you’re right. I mean, I still managed to buy some stuff after that. But that was only 'cause you were there… anyways… can we go up to your room? I wanna talk to you some more.”
: This is where Morgana asks you if you actually want to initiate the event. I’m purposely cutting this stuff because it’s generic dialog that’s repeated every time you do a confidant event.
: “I think I wanna try going somewhere else sometime. …It really sounds like Sojiro wants me to go back to school. But online classes are better for studying! I wouldn’t even have to leave the house.”
: The game never tells you what Futaba was doing for school during the two years that she spent as a hikkikomori.
: “Ain’t it!? I can attend classes without even getting out of bed! Though… I dunno if Sojiro’d really consider that going to school.”
: “School… um, to be honest… I really do wanna go back. …Do you think I’ll be able to?”
: “…Yeah! I… I’m gonna do my best!”
: “My mom used to have me do that all the time. She’d write all my goals for the month, like cleaning the house or running errands for her. Then when I’d finish one, she’d mark it off with a big stamp.”
: “She always used to write comments too… those were the best. Oh, and once I finished all my goals, she would take a day off work to spend time with me.”
: “It’s decided then! I’m gonna make a promise list! Time to get my ideas ready!”
: “So, these are my promises.”
: You’re in the wrong game for that, I’m not sure Hashino even really knows what a high school is outside of seeing it in anime.
: Well, you’re in a game with a bunch of teenagers written by middle-aged men who act like they’re in 1986 instead of 2016, so I think you’re kinda doomed there.
: “…How’s that?”
: Thanks for laying out what your confidant events are going to be up front, so that I don’t have to show them off.
: “I’m not setting a deadline for this, by the way. I wanna try and finish all of them someday! You’re gonna have to help me though. I’ll work even harder with my navigation in return!”
: “S-So, um… if I finish all the promises, do you think I could have a reward? I know it’s kinda weird to ask… but having a reward waiting at the finish line will totally push me onward!”
: The reward scene is one of the most awkward fucking things in this game.
: “Anyway, I got this! …Though I’m kinda exhausted from making the list, sooooooo… tomorrow. I got this… tomorrow.”
: I refuse to believe that this is a thing anyone has ever said.
: “Taking out the promise list brought back memories of when I worked on it with my mom. Hey. If I finish the promise list and start going to school… do you think it’d make Sojiro happy?”
: “Right! Right!? Okay, that’s another reason I gotta work at this! I wanted to think of something I could do for Sojiro, but… that’s all I got for now.”
: “But first I gotta finish the promise list! Doing this alone would be, like, omega hard. Like trying to solo a final boss. But now I got you in my party. Heh heh… I’m counting on you!”
: I’ve been considering doing Suikoden 3 as an LP - playing through Suikoden and Suikoden 2 (which I have actual discs of but wouldn’t use) and then doing an LP of 3.
: Anyway, Suikoden 2 has this bug where if you go into the final fight against Luca Blight with just the main character, the main character becomes invincible and you can auto-battle your way to victory.
: Suikoden has a lot in common with Persona in that the lead writer for the series left halfway through 3’s development and as a result 4 was… not great.
: “But now I got you in my party. Heh heh… I’m counting on you! So yeah, I’m stoked! Let’s start Phantom Quest IV: Chapters of the Thieves!”
: I don’t trust anyone who likes Dragon Quest. I just don’t. I’ve played at least three of them and don’t see the appeal.
: “Oooh, I can’t wait to see what comes of this…”
: We have another crossword tonight.
: We’re supposed to do Mishima’s confidant tonight, but I couldn’t find him. That’s because once Akihabara opens up, Mishima moves there.
: “It’s about the next target for the Phantom Thieves! This one’s massive!”
: “Well, of course! We’ve got a huge target on our hands! This is the guy. He’s a handsome young actor who’s been rapidly gaining popularity lately.”
: “He’s great at acting, has solid conversational skills… he’s even been in all sorts of commercials. If you manage to change his heart, everyone will HAVE to start paying attention to the Phantom Thieves.”
: “…He’s gotta be doing some shady stuff, I just know it. And no, I’m not saying that out of jealousy.”
: He’s absolutely saying it out of jealousy.
: I’m out of jokes about Innocent Sin at this point.
: “No, this has gotta be what the evil underbelly of the entertainment industry really looks like… anyway, isn’t it your job to listen to the public’s wishes? You have to change his heart!”
: “I mean, this would be the best publicity possible for you guys! Well? Pretty good tactic, huh? Aren’t I an amazing producer?”
: “Just you wait… I’m gonna put the Phantom Thieves on the map! You’ll practically be swimming in requests!”
: “That’s right…I’m the producer for the famous Phantom Thieves… I’m not boring… I’m not a zero…”
: “Don’t worry… this request will boost your popularity, guaranteed. After all, I’m the only reason you guys have gotten this far, right?”
: “I think you mean ‘Yes, that’s right!’ Ugh, you just don’t know all the stuff I do for you guys! The Phantom Thieves’ success is thanks to me… and the Phantom Thieves are changing the world…”
: “That means I’m the one who’s responsible for those changes… that means I’m not a zero! Make sure you check the info I sent you. I’ll let you know once I’ve found some more details.”
: “I’m listing up the evidence that’s been taken into storage. It’s a chore that any part-timer could do. I don’t have time to waste on something like this…”
: “It felt like the irritation would show on my face at the office, so I brought it home.”
: “Sorry to hear.”
: “The Phantom Thieves case isn’t so easy that I could pursue it in my spare time… the media keeps making a ruckus about it, so people have been wary whenever we make inquiries.”
: Sae going full on Jack Bauer trying to find out about John Persona.
: “All I did was question him a bit harshly.”
: “Oh, I almost forgot… I’ll be going on a school trip starting next week. The senior faculty are being questioned, so I’ll be going in their stead.”
: “Sounds good to me. The school will owe you for it. It won’t get in the way of your entrance exams, will it?”
: “Not at all. …Feel free to take a bath first. I… need to study.”
: It’s weird to me how inconsistent the developers were with when they chose to use dialog portraits when a character isn’t on screen. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t.
: “I want to change my toothbrush.”
: “I-I bought a new one already! It’s on the shelf!”
: Either Sae’s laptop is basically empty, or Hashino has no idea how file transfers work. My guess is that her laptop’s entire hard drive consists of a single text file where she stores her stupid questions.
: As soon as this dialog box goes away, you can hear Sae’s footsteps in the background.
: Your guess is as a good as mine as to why they used a winking cut-in here. It’s been not even ten seconds since Sae went off screen, which makes me think she’s a robot using some kind of heated self-clean thing like an oven.
: She just stands in one place and starts asking stupid questions until her body becomes superheated and vaporizes the dirt.
: “I’m not really in the mood to relax in the tub.”
: “It’s so close to being done too!”
: “Oh, sis!?”
: “What is it?”
: “I bought a new bath salt. It’s on the same shelf, so would you mind putting it in the tub?”
: “Not at all.”
: “Looks like it went well! I wonder what we’ll find… oh! Before that, we should get over to school!”
: “Your destination is none other than Hawaii. I hope your passport isn’t about to expire. You’re heading out Wednesday, so there’s no time to get a new one printed.”
: Joke’s on you, I don’t have a passport.
: “Anyhow, I’m sure you’ll enjoy your time sightseeing in Hawaii more if you have more knowledge. Now then, Kurusu-kun. Look closely at this picture.”
: “Each hand in this famous statue means something, but… do you know what the right represents?”
: I believe it represents Kamehameha telling his opponents to “bring it” because he has a spear.
: “That’s right. The right hand represents the prosperity of Hawaii. And the spear in the left hand represents peace.”
: “As an aside, it seems that this statue is not of King Kamehameha himself. After Kamehameha’s death, another king commissioned the statue, using a boy from his court as the model.”
: Pretty much everything Inui says here is wrong. The statue was not commissioned by a king, as this report from the University of Hawaii shows. It was commissioned by a man named Walter Gibson, who served in the Legislature of the Kingdom of Hawaii, in 1878. This was about 20 years before the United States annexed Hawaii and destroyed their democratic government, because that’s what the US does best.
: The part about the model is also incorrect. As part of the process of commissioning the statue, the Monument Committee appointed by Hawaii’s legislature sought out pictures of native Hawaiian men to use as references. They ultimately found two brothers - John Timoteo Baker, who at the time was the Royal Governor of Hawaii and had experience with the kind of ceremonial garb King Kamehameha would likely have worn, and his brother Robert Hoapili, and used a composite photo of them as a reference.
: I don’t know why I’m bothering to fact check a videogame, but here we are.
: “I hope you will make the most out of your five days there. Let me just say that I have a fondness for macadamia nuts, so…”
: “Souvenirs, huh… I definitely wouldn’t want to get some wooden figurine. I can’t understand why people would send things like that as gifts…”
: “Hehe, leave it to me.”
: “Whoa, you grabbed all these? Are they for Hawaii?”
: “If we’re gonna lay low, we might as well enjoy it. Aww, look at this one! Gigantic sea-turtle sightseein’ on some beach.”
: “Come on, food’s more important than some turtle. You really don’t find steak this big and thick in Japan! Also… mahi-mahi? Is that some kind of fish? Think it’s good?”
: Years of Animal Crossing have rendered me unable to eat mahi-mahi. If I don’t bring it to the museum now, I’m never gonna catch another one. They’re like a 1% spawn rate!
: “It seems that it’s the season for schools all around. We’re going on our school trip as well.”
: “Yeah? Where you guys goin’?”
: “I believe it’s Los Angeles.”
: “Ahaha, that doesn’t suit you at all, Yusuke! I bet you wanted to go somewhere like Nikko or Nara.”
: Hell yeah I’d go to Nara. Pet the hell out of those deer.
: “Anywhere is acceptable. After all, the mineral pigments used for Japanese art were originally imported.”
: I only picked LA because I have a deep-seated hatred of beaches. I’m not a vampire, but I might as well be given that I die in the sun.
: “I mean, don’t I seem like an LA guy? Like, a total gangsta?”
: “That makes no sense at all.”
: “I’d rather go to Hawaii.”
: “So we won’t be seeing each other for a while.”
: “We’ll make sure to buy a souvenir for you.”
: “Ooh, here comes some interesting data. This is just from a quick glance… but it says ‘perpetrated’ and ‘connected’.”
: “It means that mental shutdowns aren’t coincedence - that this is a ‘case’ with a culprit behind it.”
: “Actually, it’s not just about people having shutdowns. Looks like she’s inferring that the psychotic breakdown incidents are connected to the same case.”
: This line is weird to me because I don’t know that the game ever actually refers to the “psychotic breakdowns” being a different thing from “mental shutdowns”. They’re one and the same.
: I love that this last shot has seemingly no connection to the others for people who can’t read Japanese. In fact, I don’t even know that it has any correlation whatsoever.
: “How long do you think it’ll take to analyze all of it?”
: “Hmm, there’s a lot, so it’s not happening overnight. But I’ll manage by the time you guys get back. I demand souvenirs from Hawaii and LA for my reward.”
: “I don’t really get all this, but you’re as amazing as always, Futaba! I guess it’s called an information war? It’s so high-tech and modern, it kinda reminds me of a movie.”
: Boy was that a poor choice of phrasing.
: “We’re the Phantom Thieves, so it’s not that big a deal. I mean, I can turn into a car and stuff too…”
: “C’mon, don’t try and compete with her.”
: “What did you say!?”
: “You’re fine the way you are, Morgana. Like, you’re cheeky cute?”
: “Welp, we’ll continue this when we get back from the trip! I can’t wait to see how much the Phantom Thieves’ popularity has increased by then!”
: I might just start cutting the IMs when they only go over things we already know… which is to say I’d probably be cutting most of them.
: You might have noticed that Akechi is in Leblanc tonight. We will not be talking to him. Instead…
: “We’re going to the beach, so I bought a swimsuit, but dressing like that in front of other people… oh, sorry for bringing up such a personal topic.”
: “I’m sorry. I’m not in the mood for a match right now… I can’t teach you shogi right now… or rather, from now on…”
: “I’m… at checkmate right now. My only option is to concede… but… I can’t seem to give up. I’m not sure what my next move is after this checkmate…”
: This is the second confidant event we’ve seen that requires a maxed social stat - in this case, knowledge. I think I mentioned it at the time, but the first one was Makoto’s event at the diner.
: “My mother told me that I should lose my upcoming exhibition match against the pro…”
: “It’s a ‘strategy’ she devised… she says that if I lose to a man, I’ll get sympathy from women, and as a result get more female fans.”
: “Then when I make my comeback, I’ll become a symbol for strong women everywhere. That way, I can use the weekly magazine’s popularity against them and instantly become famous.”
: “I wish I could agree, but… I feel my mother may be right. People do love a good comeback story. Coming from the TV industry, my mother does have great insight for entertainment.”
: “This time around… I couldn’t help but argue. It’s the wrong thing to do… I actually got into a fight with my mother. It wasn’t the first time, but…”
: “What made me sad was… I realized my mother doesn’t see me as a shogi player. She said that there’s no need for me to be putting so much time and effort into shogi… and that once I become famous I can quit shogi and make money from my looks.”
: “She doesn’t mind if I lose a match, as long as I build my reputation and make money. To my mother, shogi is just a vehicle to make me famous.”
: “Even if it helped me to become famous and ease my parents’ burden… I don’t want to turn my back on shogi… a game that both my father and I love…”
: “…If only that were possible. She’s the type of woman who never changes her mind… she wants to achieve her unfulfilled dream of becoming a celebrity… through me.”
: “I highly doubt she would ever reconsider…”
: “Whose name? My mother’s? It’s… Mitsuyo. Mitsuyo Togo. What does that have to do with what we’re talking about…?”
: Yep, it’s another night we have to spend solely to get a Mementos request. I mentioned it before, but we have to do NINE of these the next time we’re in Mementos on 09/16.
: Next time, we’ll take Futaba back to Akihabara, take Yusuke for drinks instead of visiting Iwai, take the twins to the beach, and permafuck when I mis-read the guide.
