Yusuke: From him, this reads sincere.

Futaba: yeah okay

Futaba: but like

Futaba: i know we said we'd give him another chance but that doesn't mean I SPECIFICALLY want to interact with him

Futaba: like…

Yusuke: As of now?

Goro: Kitagawa is interesting.

Akira: yeah?

Goro: People are keen to name him abnormal, but having spent time with him it's clear he possesses artistic insight.

Goro: Through both training and talent.

Futaba: i'm not saying he ISN'T sincere or anything but like

Futaba: i think it's easier to act like something you're not via text ya know...

Haru: Ok

Akira: that's not up to me

Futaba: what isn't?

Akira: how you feel

Akira: what you do

Futaba: you're the leader!

Goro: You're red, of course

Akira: and idt it's up to you as a group either like this isn't a kurusu akira protection squad or phantom thief squad thing

Akira: it's everyone individually.

Akira: even if it's addressed in general.

Akira: futaba, i never cut him off. i never hid that from you guys

Akira: and i also didn't expect you to do the same

 

Makoto: That's a good point, Akira.

Ryuji: wb makoto

Ryuji: ok tbhhhh I'd have taken him out 2 eat & junk if his # still worked

Ryuji: thnk he blocked me

Makoto: Thanks.

Makoto: I just caught up.

Ryuji: ngl like it keeps me up at night just thinking about all this shit

Ann: ok i think everyone has a point like we did say we'd give him a second chance and that doesn't really have to be us specifically but like

Ann: who else is it going to be

Ryuji: yea ANN

Ann: everyone else on like the entire planet failed him

Ryuji: and also a God

Goro: Haha, these are accurate.

Goro: Futaba is definitely green.

Akira: i trust you

Goro: Purple suits Haru more.

Akira: what are you

Makoto: Yeah, but that makes it a bit nebulous.

Haru: He still always wants the last word, doesn't he?

Futaba: wow i don't feel like doing anything now :\

Futaba: can we talk about something else

Yusuke: We could replay the ending. I missed the preview.

Makoto: I think it's okay to not know how to feel

Makoto: But he didn't actually leave an opening.

Makoto: If this /is/ about us individually, I mean.

Haru: Yeah do we reach him through you? @Akira

Goro: ...Black.

Akira: that can't be right

Goro: Why not?

Akira: bc i'm hotter in black let's switch
