You are a Magical Girl, and you're currently trying to be a professional here.It's something you've been trying out since the last time you woke up and forgot who you were. It hasn't exactly been working out, but you're trying. You're trying your best. No one can begrudge you that, at least.Now if only the idol you're working for would stop fucking around with you, maybe you can stop thinking about being unprofessional.Like, shoot her in the face and dump her body in a lake unprofessional.
>>25733104...Well. You're not going to really do that, as much as it's tempting. Kirishima Ruri is proving to be a somewhat decent perrson, despite the fact that she'd done pretty much everything she could to piss you off. From what she's told you - and you're trying your best to give her the benefit of the doubt, here - she was only testing you, or something along those lines. The stuff Iori told you about her? Simply her looking out for a fellow idol, because apparently she knows first-hand just how bad of an idea it is to have a Magical Girl for a partner.Of course, it does have to be said...why'd she pick this suite, when she knows fully well that Iori was almost raped here?"Hmm?" Ruri blinks up at you as she opens yet another hulking piece of luggage. You glance at its contents, expecting more hardware, like the rifle she'd just unpacked and assembled - but it's only clothes. Idol stuff. "Oh, that! Well, I wanted Iori-chan to get over that incident, too. One time we passed by here, she very nearly threw up because of the trauma. I thought...well, I should show her how it's not the same room anymore. I heard the hotel management pretty much had everything stripped and burned and replaced, even the flooring." She taps a heeled foot on the floor. "I wanted to show her that she shouldn't dwell on it anymore, and whoever did it...well, they're not going to do it anymore, thanks to Chiaki-chan." It's here that she whistles slightly. "I watched that video as soon as it went online, you know. So brutal. So chilling." The idol shakes her head, shivering slightly as she hugs herself. "Still...it must be pretty nice to be protected by someone as dependable as you, Chiaki-chan."Dependable? You audibly snort at this. You fell asleep on the job. You very nearly slept through the entire thing, if it weren't for--[1/2]
>>25733112You barely manage to stop yourself here. ...No. No one outside the industry needs to know about Pinky, or about what happened in that hotel suite.Wait. WAIT. What video?!"You didn't know?" Ruri blinks as she steps away from her luggage, walking towards you with her smartphone out. "Apparently those guys who tried to do the job on Iori was using a webcast camera. Only they set it so that once it detected that nothing was happening that it'd stop recording and upload the entire thing." She taps at her screen with a perfectly-manicured finger, before flipping the screen towards you. What you see is a high-definition recording of you...well, shooting Iori's would-be rapists dead.And you were laughing. You...yo're sure you weren't, at that time. But you were laughing, a rough cackling that reached its crescendo as something golden and shiny snapped into your hand, bucking as it spat fire and brimstone.But...but if the video did go out, then..."It got deleted as soon as it came up, but a few people saw it and saved it." Ruri says, stepping up beside you so you could both watch it, and you could feel the soft heat of her body as she presses against your side. Her lightly-perfumed scent - one of a sugary peppermint - filling your nostrils. Another finger comes up as she fast-forwards the entire video. "Don't worry, the video doesn't show Iori=chan at all. I've made sure to buy the license to the video and have it blocked from everywhere, too, so that she doesn't see it again by accident."That's...huh. Despite how disconcerting it is to watch you gleefully murder a bunch of people who really deserved it, you think that Ruri seems to be not all that bad. Sort of."Really?" She grins cheekily at this, pressing against you just a bit more. "Ah, but I'm the sneaky, scheming idol, right? You should be careful about me, you know, Chiaki-chan. I could turn on you right this instant, and you'd be helpless."[2/3]
>>25733126You narrow your eyes at her, before gently shrugging her off. Restoring the distance between you and your client. She can fuck around with you like this, sure. You'll let it pass to an extent. But she shouldn't do any more of the stuff she did earlier."Hai, hai~" Ruri snaps a sharp, textbook salute, one that's spoiled somewhat by the fact that she's winking while doing so. "No more funny stuff, Chiaki-chan! You can count on me!"Well. So long as that's straightened out.You idly rub at your arm - the arm that'd Ruri had, either by accident or design - had pressed herself against. It was...warm and nice, sure. But nothing you shouldn't care about.You should start giving the room a once-over, then. For security purposes.With a metallic snap, your Shield materializes around your right arm, clicking faintly before falling silent.Where should you start?In the bathroom.The bedroom.Living room.Check to see if you're in an illusion.
>>25733144>[X]Check to see if you're in an illusion.Oh god why is this even an option decu what are you saying MAXIMUM SHADOWRUNS

>>25733259No Ruri, you are the illusions!And then Midori twirled her evil moustache while Iori is still getting raped to shit.(tell me a Moustache wouldn't go with that costume...)
>>25733144>[X]Check to see if you're in an illusion.And then>Bedroom>Bathroom>LivingroomIn that order.

>clicking faintly before falling silentGuys I don't think we really need to talk to Pinky just yet. That seems more like a 'don't do anything stupid, Homura-chan' signal than 'PAY ATTENTION TO ME'.
>>25733294That would be the most shocking twist yet. Somehow Midori's illusion causing Chiaki to go into a coma where she's been dreaming everything since. Possibly some of it being thought up by Pinky for Reasons. In the real world, the Iori mission was totally botched, Midori's still hiding in a dark corner of the 10th Officio condo feeling miserable, and everyone else wonders when Murderface is going to wake up...........
>>25733144[X] Ask Ruri what the box that Noriko was so scared about is and say it isn't her fault
>>25733373We already cleared that up.But we should ask about the box, just for comedy's sake.
>>25733366It would probably be a Shyamalanian twist at this point.
Suppose we should also mention that we're not going on stage with her. Not in-character.
>>25733407Oh yeahThen ask what the box she was so scared about was because I want it to be something stupidly simple and non threatening
>>25733498>a box where every side is a lcd screen of people laughing and pointing at the screen.
>>25733515It also plays recorded taunts from other schoolgirls.
Wait, so there are a select few otaku who got to see our snuff film. This is the kind of thing that when you try to cover it up it only comes out even more. Just like with the shit we do on 4chan, someone on their forums has already posted a pic showing the similarity's between us then and us now.We are going to end up getting stalked for this.Someone is going to find where we live, where we work, and post pictures of us coming and going on some forum.
>>25733644Sounds like a good marketing piece, to be honest.
>>25733644Which is why we should call QB while inspecting the room. And yell at him, a lot.
>>25733644And then someone pays for a Chiaki-rape video, and we use Midori to nightmare-mode THEM andthenthecyclewillbecomplete.jpg
>>25733644Ruri did damage control. Kyubey would have done some too, probably more thorough than anything that Ruri can manage. If you're really worried about it, text the cat or something.
>>25733677I'm sure they have done all they can, but we just went live for a webcast with millions of viewers. They are all probably in a 2ch thread gushing over it right now. There only needs to be one guy to post a picture at this point for all of them to know.
>>25733153 >>25733168 >>25733171 >>25733200You decide to check the bedroom first. It's the main area of the suite, anyway, and you're already here. But...you should probably check to see if you're not currently snoring in some Callidus' barrier before that. Not that you're paranoid or anything. It's just you being careful. Cautious. Professional.Midori taught you this trick, during your final days in Sibaria. Apparently, Callidus are also trained to detect illusionary barriers, just in case a double agent or whatever is trying to get the jump on them. All they had to do was to get their Soul Gem back in its jewel form, and think very hard about finding a Witch in the vicinity. Apparently, the Barrier of a Witch and a Callidus were quite similar, and anyone's Soul Gem would react distinctly to either once they were close enough.She did warn you, however, that it's not exactly a one-hundred percent thing. Some Callidus are known to be very good with their illusions, and it takes more than that to root them out. But in that case, Midori would sense it - and immediately contact you through your attunement with her. The both of you tried it out, during one evening - and you discovered that you could talk to each other with short sentences just fine, only that it was completely exhausting to keep up for a while. You agreed on only doing it during emergencies.You tell Ruri to go back to whatever she was doing - the idol giggling here, before doing exactly that - and it's with your back turned to her that you manifest your Soul Gem back into the form that reminds you of an overly-elaborate Christmas tree bauble. You tap at the golden gilding gently, peering at the darkened purple gemstone - before taking a deep breath, closing your eyes, and concentrating. If there was a Witch or Callidus Barrier nearby, then it'd grow warm, almost hot in your hand, and glow in urgent pulses.[1/2]
>>25733698Only takes one magical hacker to shut down everything. Though it's probably more efficient to just have a bunch of people laughing at the "obviously doctored videos". Whatever the case, it's really a minor thing, no? Murderface is already a legend so there's probably dozen of such "sighting videos" and things floating around. One more won't change a thing.
>>25733756You open your eyes after a moment, and see that the Soul Gem is inert. Nothing. Witch Barrier OR Callidus Barrier.And Midori hasn't contacted you yet....Well, that's good enough. For now.You turn slightly to glance at Ruri. She's humming as she holds up what seems like a very frilly and very...scant nightgown, holding it against her and looking at the mirror. Normal stuff.You shake your head as your soul gem sparks into existence on the back of your right hand.Idols.You give the bedroom - and the living room, as well - the once-over you also gave it a few lifetimes ago, back when all you were guarding was a brown-haired idol getting on your case for not taking personal hygiene all that seriously. Nothing seems to be untoward, here - no hidden cameras, no weak locks or anything that could give easily with a shove. Nobody hiding underneath the bed or in the closets, either. The ceiling, which once had a skylight, was now firmly boarded up and skylight-less, so you won't have to worry about operapists rappeling down from it ever again."Chiaki-chan, can I ask you a question?" Ruri suddenly asks you, as you go down on your knees to look for anything under the furniture. Bugs and whatnot. "That Magical Girl whose knees you shot off in the video. What happened to her?"...Well. She didn't even wait for you to say if she could ask you, but...How do you respond?None of your business.Tell her about Midori.Lie.
>>25733778[X] "Oh, she's alive and well. Why do you ask?"
>>25733778[X] "I put a magical bomb collar on her."
>>25733778>>25733786[x] Good enough.
>>25733778[X] "Who wants to know?"oh boy here we go
>>25733778[x]None of your business.
>>25733778Look guys, let's not give her unnecessary intel.Ask her, why she would like to know. We don't answer back at all.
>>25733778[x]Given that she's still writing Miracle Midori and Murder Mayumi, I'd say fine.
>>25733778>[x]None of your business.Nope. We give no Infos on anything concerning our private life away.
>>25733778"Oh, it takes a lot more than that to kill a Magical Girl. She's alive. Don't know what she's doing right now."I think that probably counts as [x] Lie, but none of it is strictly speaking untrue. We could find out pretty easily, but off the top of our head we don't know what Midori's doing right now.
>>25733778>[x]None of your business.I am not at liberty to disclose that information.
>>25733786>>25733796Why would you want to tell her this!? WHYYYY!???!>>25733835No.
>>25733778Tell her about MidoriNothing too detailed but that she was captured and interrogated then dealt with
>>25733778[x]"I took her back for questioning in a very cold and unpleasant room. I'll give you the same courtesy if you give me reason to shoot your legs off, as well."
>>25733852I vote for this. Close enough to the truth that if she has some bullshit truth detecting power, it doesn't register as a lie
>>25733778[x] Lie.Interrogated, killed.>>25733763That's just it, I don't doubt her being a minor legend. But this is about to go viral. And when someone posting conspiracy theories suddenly gets his shit deleted, it raises red flags. It doesn't confirm his claim, but it gets a lot more people interested.The biggest issue I have is that we probably will end up being stalked for this.
>>25733812Careful, don't get too defensive. At this rate our refusal to say anything will give away everything we're trying to hide.
>>25733778[X] None of your businessWe're not ready to cross that bridge yet.
There are two major issues we have to be very, very careful about here. One is her connecting Midori "Rape 'em all" Hanegawa to US, and the other is her finding out Midori and the writer of the manga are the same person.Tread carefully.
>>25733869I like this. Switching to this.>>25733874Maybe. Who knows? Hard to stalk someone who can stop time and completely disappear so it looks like she's teleporting.
>>25733852I like this plan.
>>25733786>[X] "Oh, she's alive and well. Why do you ask?"Made it to the show.
>>25733778[x] Other"I'm sorry but I'm not at liberty to talk about the internal affairs of our industry. Suffice to say, though, she's been taken care of."
>>25733852This seems alright.
>>25733869>>25733923>>25733909Alright, switching to:[x]"I took her back for questioning in a very cold and unpleasant room. I'll give you the same courtesy if you give me reason to shoot your legs off, as well."
>>25733778>[x]None of your business.>[x]Lie"Officio business is none of your business but since you dated a Magical Girl who wasn`t as tight-lipped as she should have been you probably can imagine how rival Magical Girls treat each other."Its lieing and not telling her shit at the same time!
>>25733919If they get that on film...
>>25733778[X]"Ah, well you know, it's an occupational hazard. I don't think you'd want to know."
>>25733919>Hard to stalk someone who can stop time and completely disappear so it looks like she's teleporting.Haven't we been told to reduce use of our Timestop because of its damaged state? I'm sure QB told us to not use the Timestop as much for now.
>>25733869>[x]Voting for this >>25733869
Y'know, we COULD just say 'she died'. It's even true!
>>25733924We are the warmaster, we can be at liberty if we feel like it. Ruri knows this, it would just give us away.
>>25733909>Midori "Rape 'em All" HanasegawaYou do one (set) of idol rape vid jobs and you're marked for life.
>>25733778"I took her as Isorla, like it befits a rare resource."
>>25733778[X] None of your businessThere's absolutely no reason to give Ruri any info that's not related to the current job.
>>25733778"She ended up redeeming herself and now she's doing honest work. Turns out other Officios take some slimy jobs."
>>25733955People seem to be forgetting this repeatedly so here it is to clarifyKyuubey told us to take it easy on the shield because he didn't know what too much use would do to it.He didn't order us to use it less, he didn't say that using it too much would break it he just said that he couldn't tell us how to fix it and just to take it easy until we knew more
>>25733778>[x]Lie."I killed her, just like the killer I am."
>>25733960I forgot if we actually know this, though. Hell, I'm not sure Midori told us most of what even went on in the barrier.
>>25733979We're not going to know what the hell that means. Chiaki isn't a fa/tg/uy.
Okay, I'm late but I REALLY NEED to say that I refuse to trust anyone whose underlings act like that, are named like that and shit their pants at certain words, such as "box".Also, Ruri really gives me some Littlefinger to Ned vibes.Midori wouldn't be her almost ex or something, right?And the body thing is still suspicious as fuck.Guard up, people!
>>25733979>>25734009I thought I was a fa/t/guy and I don't know what the hell that means.
>>25734009Do you know what battle-salvage is called in a magical girl officio?
>>25734015Midori's ex was a guy.
>people ACTUALLY VOTING TO TELL HER THE TRUTHoh god what the fuck are you guys doing
>>25734020I am a fa/tg/uy and I have no clue what it is>>25734027Plunder, spoils, loot, booty.Anything we can use to imply she is ours
>>25734034ruri confirmed for penis
>>25734041Possibly forcing shadowruns to occurNot entirely sure
>>25733778Fixed version of image, it will bug me forever if the one with the screwups gets circulated instead.
>>25734034Considering Midori's tendency to lie to save face, I've always imagined the otaku-neet ex-boyfriend, who got compared to Souji and was only mentioned once, as her "manga drawing assistant who she says is her boyfriend because it's to embarrassing to say otherwise."
>>25734044Ruri is a trap?This actually makes a lot of senseBet the box is code for Ruri banging Noriko while she is strapped into a bondage box
>>25734020It's a reference to Battletech, specifically the Clans.>>25734027Why would it be called anything in particular? The Tenth Incubator was surprised it was even possible for Midori to switch Officios.
>>25734086>My face when I'm not the only one to come up with super lewd interpretations of everything.
>>25734089The Tenth is a stupid dickbutt of an Incubator. Even the other Incubators think so! He wouldn't know anything important at all.I hope we get to exploderate him soon.
>>25734089>The Tenth Incubator was surprised it was even possible for Midori to switch Officios.He wasn't surprised so much as annoyed because its apparently looked down upon by other Incubators.
>>25734111We need to find a way to permanently exploderate him thoughWe need to convince him that we are going to just keep killing him so giving up is the better option but how we would actually keep spawn camping him is problematic
>>25733993I can bet my arse that she already knows of Midori's status. She has proven to have a lot of resources at her disposal; a half-truth would be better than a whole lie.>>25733977That's how the world works, mate.
>>25734041If we don't explain that Broccoli has reformed what do you think will happen when Ruri sees her in the crowd or god forbid catches her snooping around?
>>25734123>>25734089Lets have a look at the conversation. >10>...This is off to a bad start.>10> Look. I'm willing to let slide the fact that my older brother...broke our agreement, as it were.>10> I don't expect him to remember everything. He's getting on his old age>10> He wasn't supposed to entertain the idea of replacing my contract with Hanegawa with one of his.>10> I didn't even know he could do something like that, the sly bastard.
>>25734015Actually, what with the Ruri-face-ripper in Santa Destroy, and having played no more Heroes 2, I am continually having shadowruns fall out of my pockets.With her sniper rifle and song, I keep thinking of Margaret Moonlight and her whole setup. Didn't she have some bit about her song being the last thing that her targets hear?>my shadowruns only make Decu stronger
>>25734123>because its apparently looked down upon by other Incubators.Just like forced Witching, right?
>>25734145Again she hasn't known anything that she could not have gotten out of Iori or by anyone with access to general magical girl informationWhen she does something like ask us about how Midori is going after her time in Siberia then we can spill the beans
>>25734188If she implies that she knows about anything that actually HAPPENED in Siberia, we're only going to "spill the beans" in as much as we'll be asking her to spill the beans in a very dark, very cold room after shooting her legs off as to where she gets her intel.
>>25734172Yea, Margaret wears a goth dress
>>25734201That's not to say that she's just not wearing Ruri's face instead.Out of setting, meta knowledge, yet my shadowruns can't stop.
>>25734188Why should we? We aren't paid to tell her things, we're paid to look mean and shoot anyone who looks back at us funny. Ruri isn't privy to anything going on within the Officios.>>25734200Tempting, but let's do that if she ever goes FOFA. She is still a World-famous Idol, even if she is a smarmy little bitch who knows too much.
>>25734200Well yeah but we can start telling her then when she isn't expecting it we cap her with the golden Deagle
I wish I had thought of this sooner.[x] OtherWe gave her the Murderface experience.
[X] Say something cynical
>>25733778[x]Kinda like this answer.>>25734252
>>25734252...That is pretty much what she signed up for when she asked for us specifically.I already voted though and I don't feel like changing it.
>>25734289No, I mean the voting time has long since been over. Even if everyone voted for it now I don't think it would do anything.
>>25733869 >>25733786 >>25733869You give the underside of the sofa another thorough look, before finally getting back up, patting your knees clean as you do so. Everything seems clean, from what your initial sweep tells you. That leaves the bathroom, which you make a beeline for. It's also here that you decide to indulge Kirishima Ruri on her curiosity.The Magical Girl whose knees you shot off in the video? Well, if Ruri was at all familiar with standard operating procedure as far as captured Magical Girls are concerned, they're usually taken to a cold and dark room where they can't do any harm. They're kept there for a while until they're ready to be interrogated, the methods of which an idol like her doesn't really need to know. After that, depending on how the captured Magical Girl behaves - and the general temperament of those who captured her - then she's either set free and left to return to her Officio in shame, or killed and then disposed of."Has anyone ever told you that it's scary, the way you talk about stuff like that and sound like you don't care at all?" Ruri says this just as you check the bathroom's expansive clothes closet for anything amiss. Her voice trembling just so very slightly. "But hee, it's a bit exciting. Oh, please continue, sorry to interrupt."Has anyone ever told her she was strange as fuck? Of course, you don't say this, merely grunting in annoyance before continuing. You followed standard operating procedure on the Magical Girl, to the letter - except for the last bit. That was taken conveniently out of your hands by your boss. The last thing you know is that she's somewhere else, alive and well and most likely going to think twice before she takes another job like that.[1/2]
>>25734335"Hoh~ I see, I see. That's just a bit too convenient, though, but I'll take it, I suppose. I wanted to hear a sad ending, but a happy ending's not all that bad." Ruri's voice seems to grow wistful at this, before turning cheeky yet again. "Although...it'd be weird, wouldn't it, if you somehow fell in love with that Magical Girl instead of killing her like you were supposed to? Right, Chiaki-chan?"...Just how much does this fucking idol KNOW?You open your mouth to snap a reply, before seeing what looks like a frilly pair of green-striped underwear lying on the sink.AND WHY ARE IDOLS ALWAYS LEAVING THEIR PANTIES AROUND FOR YOU TO FIND? FUCK.How do you respond?
>>25734347[X] "This yours?"
>>25734347"Yeah, that'd sure be something."
>>25734347[x] "It wouldn't be weird. It would be fucking stupid. For both of us."
>>25734347"What sort of manga have you been reading, Ruri? Real life doesn't work like that. "
>>25734347I don't exactly think you know enough about love to run your mouth about it.Then.>>25734365
>>25734347[x] Grunt non-committally.
>>25734219>>25734347[X] "Yeah, that'd sure be something."[X] *Pick up panties* "This yours?"Fucking called it.
Well, gee, It's incredible how much this girl knows.Almost like she's some kind of PROPHET or something.
>>25734381... She just finished telling us about her dead girlfriend. I know she's annoying, but that's still a seriously low blow.
>>25734381>I don't exactly think you know enough about love to run your mouth about it.Passive aggressive route is a go.
>>25734347[X] "Wouldn't it be funny if you put your panties in the goddamned laundry? Seriously, is this an idol thing? Leaving morsels for scumbags to flip for a quick buck?"
>>25734347[x]Let's try not to eye-twitch at the panties. "...Is that a plotline in your dumb magical girl anime here? And I wasn't "supposed" to kill anyone, things sometimes just happen during a mission. Unlike my predecessor, I don't kill and/or fuck everything I come across, believe it or not."
>>25734347"Frankly, I've fallen in love long time ago. Name's Kong. I would introduce you, but I've heard booze is bad for a singing voice and I don't want to spoil you."
>>25734347[x] Ignore them. Check in on Iori and Sayaka.
>>25734347>>25734385This. And tell her to pick up her damn underwear.
>>25734347[X] "What the fuck would I do with love Ruri? God help the poor fucker that ever happens to."
>>25734394Whether she's a saint or a sinner, she's been really fucking with us, and if we have to make a shot to the beanbag to get her to back off, then so be it, if you ask me.
>>25734394And Murderface is the paragon of tact?I'm not saying this is an excuse to be a cunt or that we should say it, but it would be a murderface thing to say.
>>25734347>You open your mouth to snap a reply, before seeing what looks like a frilly pair of green-striped underwear lying on the sink.She's baiting us, just ignore it. >[x]"I'm too far gone for love."
>>25734388Cool your Shadowruns, bro; us doing weird stuff with Midori was what eightysixed the Iori route in the first place.
>>25734347[x] "What is it with idols and never picking up after themselves? This yours?"
>>25734399Actually, with Murderface it WAS kill whatever crosses her path.
>>25734347Is it an idol thing to leave panties in the sink?Like some sort of secret code amongst you lot?And the world really is quite boring, stories of enemies becoming lovers or redemption for these lead astray don't really happen, what does happen is that people die and are generally killed by those who are little better than them at best. At worst they die after becoming the sort of monsters they were brought up believing they should fight against
>>25734466Shoot your problem with bullets.If this does not solve your problem, keep shooting.Keep shooting the resulting consequences of your problem, until you run out of problems.Murderface!
She's attempting to rattle us or confirm suspicions by idly saying things like that. Whether she actually knows or not is debatable. Although, if she has extremely fanatical fans or informants in mundane positions around the city, it would not be that far-fetched if she was informed that a certain broccoli-head was seen with some Mayumi cosplayer.
[X] "Wouldn't it be funny if you put your panties in the goddamned laundry? Seriously, is this an idol thing? Leaving morsels for scumbags to flip for a quick buck?"
>>25734466Well, I'd like to think we've improved a bit since then. So we should advertise as such.We haven't killed anyone in, like, almost a week now!
>>25734347How much kong do you think I could get for those?
>>25734490>implying this will put anyone at ease
>>25734347Ruri what the fuck is this shit.How did your panties end up in the sink?God damn girl take care of your undergarments they ain't cheapBut yeah shit like that doesn't usually happen outside those dumb manchild-pandering cartoons. Sorry for not being Murder Maduki or whatever her name is.
>>25734335>...Just how much does this fucking idol KNOW?Considering we let Midori continue her doujin series, probably a lot.[x] "That would be optimistic. I don't do optimistic."[x] Pick up the panties. "I'm told there's a thriving business in these, pack neatly."
>>25734347[x] "I swear you idols need a lesson in basic laundry. The clothes go IN the hamper."
>>25734479Murderface time, come on, grab your gunWe're gonna make a failproof plan.Magical Girland Golden GunThe bullets never end,It's murder time!
>>25734514[callous assholery intensifies]
>>25734347>>25734523[X] let's go this way.
>>25734490I can imagine Midori putting up a 'You have managed to avoid killing somebody for XX days' poster on the wall, and giving Chiaki a thumbs up as she swaps out the numbers to '5'.
>>25734347I like this one:>>25734523[x] "That would be optimistic. I don't do optimistic."[x] Pick up the panties. "I'm told there's a thriving business in these, pack neatly."
>>25734514>But yeah shit like that doesn't usually happen outside those dumb manchild-pandering cartoonsActually thats how I`ve met my girlfriend.
>>25734523[X] this seem good
>>25734347[x]I like this one too.>>25734523>[x] "That would be optimistic. I don't do optimistic.">[x] Pick up the panties. "I'm told there's a thriving business in these, pack neatly.
>>25734388Possible. The head could have been done by a hired goon of some sort. We should ask about the box or that Ruri look-alike thing. Turn the pace around and ask her some questions again.
>>25734561Why did I just picture that being part of a cheesy 80's montage?
>>25734576You were supposed to kill a girl? That's a little odd, even before the part where how you got together with her afterwards.
>>25734576the point is to pretend that Midorin is working for our officio but has no type of relationship with us at all.We should send her a quick message to see what sh's up to when we get the chance.
We should probably ask Midori to throw a few red herrings into her mango when she gets the chance. The last thing we need is an accurate representation of our life just out there. Ruri probably only reads the manga and picks out the details, which is why she knows so much.
>>25734594Haha.>Midori intercepting a cig going into Chiaki's mouth>Midori refilling all of the booze with water in the bottles in Chiaki's secret stash.>Midori updating the day counter again>Tugging on Chiaki's cheeks to try and get her to smile properly>A tattered and bloody Chiaki and Midori walking into the warmaster quarters at the end of a busy day. Midori dispondantly pulls the day counter off the poster while Chiaki lights up a cig.
>>25734660Uh, Iori spilled, like, everything.
On the subject of Shadowruns:Ruri's info is way too accurate and too up to date. I'm not saying she's The Prophet like some other anon suggested, but there's definitely something fishy with how she keeps coming up with information and pushing Chiaki's buttons. If everybody weren't so decided on playing nice, I'd suggest trying to scare her into spilling.
>>25734660I don't think Midori has actually gotten too much of our real life into the manga yet anywayRemember she had a backlog of unreleased stuff over ten volumes long so anything she is still writing will only be coming out when they clear it up
>>25734676I do think that we need to grab Iori and figure out just exactly how much she's spilled to Ruri.
>>25734676She's running interference for or assisting Oriko (Or some other person who is a prophet). Why? Because the person knows about Homu's powers.Possibility: Mami is a distraction and Homura is the actual target.
>>25734712Likely everything.When one is infatuated, he/she tends to spew every possible thing about him/her.
>>25734660On the other hand, it's pretty interesting to see Midori turn people like Kharn and Pinky into h-characters, so I'm kind of tempted to let that part keep going.
>>25734712She's coming up with info that Iori has no way of sharing because she doesn't know. So that is out as a source. There's a chance that she's just throwing guesses out to see what Chiaki reacts to, but the rest of her information has been spot on.It's just pretty weird, I think.
>>25734670Actually she would probably be replacing whiskey with cold teaWatered down black tea can pass for whiskey or bourbon at a glance
>>25734745She actually isn't coming up with anythingWe are spilling far too much in our answers and she so far is just fishing
>>25734745Yes, but sadly we can't just start BLAM'ing everybody who knows something about us. This one's been fishy from the get-go, but this isn't the 'kill all the things so there's no loose ends' mission.Yet. I mean, despite the fact that Ruri is triggering a ton of people's shadowruns, we just can't waste her to be sure.>Suddenly the second season of GITS:SAC makes more sense to me now.
>>25734610>You were supposed to kill a girl? That's a little odd, even before the part where how you got together with her afterwards.No, the part about her panties lying around in the bathroom.
>>25734745>>25734763>>25734777I dunno. She's been very spot-on with little input from us. Or maybe because my "Shadowrun" meter is ticking madly at the moment. We'll just have to see how this'll go.
>>25734793What she has been spot on about has been things Iori could have told about usWhat she hasn't been spot on about she could be fishing for information and we are connecting too many dots
>>25734793You're probably right, but for this specific situation, it is worth considering that Chiaki's hung out with Midori in public (at the very least heading to the airport, probably other times that slip my mind) which could have been seen, and Ruri might have gotten a clear look at Midori in the video, and then she put two and two together. Unlikely but not impossible.
>>25734821>>25734793For example she is asking what happened to the girl we shot the legs out of then randomly went to falling in love with herI don't think that Chiaki has reall fallen in love with Midori despite going out on limb for her in getting her switched to CoobieAlso given Ruri has been around for a while she may know Kharn and we know how good she is with secrets
That video thing is going to be pretty harsh if that finds any traction. Because EVERYONE'S going to want to get their hands on "See a popular idol almost get raped until she's saved by a lunatic schoolgirl with a gun in each hand messily murdering everyone" tape that was supposedly DELETED FROM THE INTERNET. "See what the government didn't want you to know!" or something. Not only is it a blow to Iori, it also wouldn't look good for Midori to be identified as aiding and abetting in the crime.
>>25734670Drawfags, you know what to do
>>25734858It has been a while since it was out and if that hasn't happened already then I really doubt it isI am inclined to think Ruri actually has this under wraps aside from a few people who saved it
>>25734858Somehow, I don't think she was telling the truth about how she got it.We seriously need to doublecheck with Coobs about that.
>>25734844>>25734832In short, she's tying to get a rise out of us. I don't know how to counter-troll her, sadly.
She has no openings which we could use to troll her with.
>>25734939Oh, she's got at least three openings i'd like to troll her in.
>>25734939With a few well placed gunshots we could make some openings...
>>25734939Have we encountered the god of ruse?
>>25734952Can we troll her three openings with magical appendages?
>>25734969Let's ask the Hat!
The dame is bad news, fellas. Bad news. Let's not be the fly that gets attracted to how shiny the spiderweb is.
w-what happened to decu?
>>25735046Moon rabbits are attacking.Please wait warmly.

>>25735064Good God did he just skip the second NYAN NYAN?
>>25735054>>25735064YOU BLEW IT ALL UP
>>25735092But it looks great?
Alright who's ready to summon Decu->>25735064God dammit.

>>25735092There is nothing with it.
>>25735116*nothing wrong withFuck.
>>25735092I cringe when I look at things I drew yesterday.
>>25735114But there will be no struggle, anon. Our happy ending will be spoonfed to us, tasteless, and will leave us filled but unsatisfied.
w-we can try again right guys?
>>25735149No.That will only bring bad luck.
>>25735129I cringe when I even think about drawing anything.
Let's see if my Shadowruns are up to date:Ruri:_ Is a magical girl. Most likely Callidus._ Sent Midori and a rape squad to take out Yayoi and Iori. She asked about Midori to see if she would need to tie up some loose ends._ Was in love with a Vindicare?__ Was that Vindicare Homura Akemi?
>>25735114But Anon, there's one thing about Negaculture you have to keep in mind. He makes sure that none of his Magical Girls are lesbians, or even bi-curious!Does this make Negaculture Hitomi?
>>25735171Heh, that would be fun. The magical girl that Ruri feel in love with was one of our previous selves.pic very related.
>>25735171Where did you get that she was a Vindicare? I don't recall that being mentioned.
>>25735171Ah SHIT FUCK GODDAMNIT STOP STIOP STOOPPAdd the prophet part and we're good
>>25735191I think she claims the giant sniper rifle she carries belonged to her.
>>25735191>eversors using fuckhueg sniper rifles
>>25735191That huge rifle has to be more than a 'good luck charm'
>>25735171You forgot 'is an android' and 'possesses a Golden Weapon', buddy.
>>25735210>'possesses a Golden Android'The spirit that inhabits it is C3PO.
I'm always behind an episode.
>>25735171>>25735190>Pinky told us to stop getting involved with idols>idols>not that idolShit, I really do think she knew Murderface.
>>25735208>>25735209>in love with a VindicareNo one ever said that Ruri was a Vindicare.>>25735200She said the rifle was a family heirloom.
>>25735171I'll update it for youRuri:_ Is a magical girl. Most likely Callidus.__ Is the Prophet__ Posesses a Golden Weapon___ That causes hypnosis and/or absolute mind control_ Sent Midori and a rape squad to take out Yayoi and Iori. She asked about Midori to see if she would need to tie up some loose ends._ Was in love with a Vindicare?__ Was that Vindicare Homura Akemi?_ Is an android
>>25735171Kirishima Ruri is just a stage name. Her real name is Mikuni Oriko.
>>25735238The rifle belonged to the girl she was in love with. Fuck.
>>25735250We've met Oriko before.Which would mean Ruri is a Callidus who was dating a Vindicare. Who may have been Homura Akemi. Oh god, history really is repeating itself...
>>25735258>"What, this?" She looks down at the rifle on her lap. It's almost fully assembled, save for the magazine. You narrow your eyes at it, and Ruri catches your gaze. She giggles, and shows you that it's empty. "calm down. I never bring ammunition to a concert. And this is a family heirloom - I take it with me and clean it to calm myself down. It's also my good luck charm, see?" She fingers the ribbon tied around the scope.>And this is a family heirloom Learn to read before you Shadowruns.
>>25735267.... She may, possibly, just as a thought, be lying.
>>25735267Because she totally wouldn't lie about that.
>>25735267>How...how did she know about Magical Girls in the first place?>"By falling in love with one." Ruri replies in a distant whisper, turning her back once more to you, as she looks back at the rifle. Did YOU read what you pasted just now?
>She fingers the ribbon tied around the scope.That ribbon. We have a clue here.
>>25735266We really need to make that phone call back to home base.
>she's an androidJust because Decu uses Miku Hatsune pics for her doesn't mean she IS Miku Hatsune.>>25735238>She said the rifle was a family heirloom.And we trust her because...?
>>25735293Well she WAS cleaning and assembling the rifle while we were talking to her.If she was done speaking, she'd turn back to it.
>>25735310And now read the description of the rifle. Does it sound like anything used by a professional hitman? Just connect the dots.>description of the rifle>family heirloom>the way she looks at it in that sceneIt's not that hard.
>>25735278>>25735282>>25735303Assumptions are not facts. The previous anon was stating that her lost love was a Vindicare as though this was a verified fact, even though there is no reason to assume that much.Calm down. Making baseless assumptions about things is what can get us killed.
>>25735357RURI IS OUR DAUGHTER
Well, since we're waiting for Deculture anyway, here's the current progress on the height chart. Once Kharn is finished: Mami is up next, standing next to Pinky, then Mirai, standing next to Midori.
>>25735373>Ruri is this world's Homura
>>25735376Oooooh, I really like how this one's shaping up
>>25735296Who else used ribbons? Madoka, FOFA Homura>>25735376Awesome.
>>25735376Wow, midori is tall for a Japanese girl. She's like 5'7"
>>25735395>Spaghetti tan is this worlds HomuraShe did remind us pf ourselves after all.
>>25734371 >>25734523 >>25734531 >>25734514 >>25734417 Falling in love? Heh. That'd be something. Unfortunately, that's optimistic - and you don't do optimistic. You tell the idol this as you step out of the freshly-inspected bathroom, holding out the pair of underwear you found, pinched between thumb and fingertip. You see Ruri grinning at you as she looks up from her luggage - before blinking somewhat as she sees what you're currently holding."I...um...I could explain that, I was--" The idol stutters, suddenly off-balance for the first time since you met, before you shake your head and toss the scrap of cotton and silk at her direction. Whatever her explanation is, you don't want to hear it - only that she should probably learn that there's a thriving market for an idol's used panties, and she should pack a bit more neatly. And used clothes go IN the hamper, not all over the place."Aheh. I'll...I'll remember that. Sorry..." Ruri knuckles her forehead, sheepishly sticking a tongue out in yet another cute, endearing idol-gesture. Making you quickly avert your eyes AND dampen what little satisfaction you earned from being able to lecture someone who earns millions just by prancing around on a stage while singing badly....Man. It's only been the first day, and you're already sick of this mission. It can't end soon enough, can it?"I don't know how I left it there, though..." The idol tilts her head this way and that as she examines the pair of frilly underwear. "I'm positive I had Noriko-chan take care of my laundry before you got here, and--" It's then that her expression twists into a rather miffed one. "Oooh, that Noriko! That does it, she's definitely staying in the box for an entire night!"You blink at this, before narrowing your eyes at her. What's this about a box you keep hearing about? She should really take it easy on Deepthroat--er, Noriko. The poor girl tries her best, even you could see that.[1/2]
>>25735420Instead of rebuking you, the idol seems to take your suggestion seriously, a grunt of frustration issuing from her. "Nnn, I know...and really, I do treat her as nice as I could, even when it looks like I don't! But sometimes, you can't help but try and tease her, you know?" Ruri looks at you with an expression of mingled despair, like someone desperate to get her point across. "It's...it's like she's this perfect M, and you just want to bully her and make her cry whenever you see her--"No. No you don't know anything about that. And what the hell is the damn box about?"Oh, it's nothing bad. It's just whatever huge box I can find, and she has to stay inside it for a while with the lights out. When she falls asleep inside of it, I sneak up and shake it while making ghost noises."...Yeah, that thing about her changing your opinion about idols? She had an awful start, then began to do well until she's back into horrible again.Although...well, that does sound hilarious. Awful, but hilarious.Anyway. It looks like her suite's clean, for now. You don't need to start getting paranoid at the moment. You let out a sigh, before turning to Ruri and opening your mouth to ask about her twenty-four hour webcast - before someone suddenly entering the suite cuts you off.It's...well. You've seen a lot of Yakuza, and they're Yakuza, alright. No matter how well they dress or how much they'd like to pass off the bulges inside their suits as nothing particularly illegal or high-caliber, you could spot one from a mile away.But this one - at least, the one with the more expensive suit and the one to first step into the room looks...sharper. Young for a yakuza, too, probably in his mid-thirties or something. No disfiguring scars like his goons, but he does have quite the shit-eating sneer that, combined with his perenially-narrowed makes you want to grind clean off his face with the pavement.[2/3]
>>25735431"Ah, Miss Kirishima?" The lead Yak says, his voice smooth and oily. "Please, allow me to bid you welcome, on behalf of the Tojo Group, to Mitakihara. We appreciate you choosing our city as the final venue for your world tour - no doubt we'll be feeling the boost in our economy and popularity for years to come."He seems civil enough. You turn to Ruri, and--...Well. She doesn't look like she was expecting him. In fact, she looks positively livid."What are you doing here?!" Ruri's shout is a whip-crack in the relative silence of the hotel room. "You're not supposed to even be in the same building as I am! What...how did you get past security? They weren't supposed to let you in--""They weren't, I'll agree," The yak says silkily, not missing a beat despite the obvious discomfiture of the super idol. "But we reassured them that we were only here for a very brief meeting with you. Business matters." It's here that he snaps his fingers, and one of his goons gives him a manila folder. "Now, I'm sure you've read my emails, Miss Kirishima, so you must know why I'm here. It's the matter of--""I'm not signing your damn contract," Ruri snarls. "I've got my own production company, and no matter how many zeroes are there on your check I'm not leaving! I know what happens to Tojo Production idols after they sign!""All rumor and baseless conjecture, I assure you--""GET OUT! JUST GET OUT!"How do you react? From your count, it seems like there's the lead yak and four, maybe five goons with him. All of them probably armed.
>>25735411>RibbonsAre Mami's whole power.Those gunz she makrs? Magically formed from magic ribbons.Hm.Possibly homosexual. Must investigate further.
>>25735357Look. When talking about something painful, its a reflex to go back to what a person was doing to not think or dwell on it further. I am just pointing out another interpretation to her actions.Also between family heirloom and her former vindicare lover's weapon, it can only be one or the other. It could be that the former lover schooled her in shooting in, so theres alot of baggage with that particular weapon.
>>25735445>armedhah, that's a joke.anyway, never know what yakuza groups bring handy magical girl reinforcements, so might as well stay alert. tell them they're intruding and to leave the suite post-haste.
>>25735445[x]Place a hand on our shield, ready to spin it into Timestop. "Ms. Kirishima is asking you businessmen to leave. This meeting is at an end."They're a local Yakuza group? Decu, does Chiaki know anything about them, now that some of her memories are back?
>>25735445Don't draw attention to ourselves, but get into a positions we could drop them if necessary.

>>25735459>Also between family heirloom and her former vindicare lover's weapon, it can only be one or the other.Not necesarially. Incest is popular in japan, after all. A sister who went meguca...
>>25735445Doesn't matter how annoying Ruri is, we can at least agree that THIS is the part of the job we signed up for.>[X]Remove them from the apartment, with force if necessary.
>>25735445[x] Politely ask him to leavea businessman should be offered this courtesy.[x] If not he goes out. On his rear end. Non-lethally, of course.
>>25735445>[x] Pull out a SAW to get the point across
>>25735445Turn to Ruri and ask how she prefers her Yakuzas. Diced, smashed to a paste or full of holes.This is just what we need to let off some steam.
>>25735495>[x] Timestop, nut shot, take their weapon, push them out the door, lock it, unfreeze time.
>>25735502>yuri incestBY THE STARS, THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN!
>>25735445[X]stay calm, try to herd them out and away from Ruri, be ready to timestop if they pull out gunsless violence means less chance that our client get's hurt. which is what we're hired to do among other things
>>25735445[X] "Bitchface asked you to leave, fuckface. Get out before I make you."
[x] Remove Yaks from premises
>>25735445[x] Draw large gun. M60 large. Politely inform yak to leave.Politely fill with lead if they decline.
>>25735445Step between them and ruri, ask the politely to leave. if they don not, order them unpolitely.And get sayaka prepped if this goes horribly wrong
>>25735445Oi, you guys know Kirika Kure? I killed her.Now get the fuck out because my current contract allows me to completely and utterly obliterate every single one of you like (timestop, kneecap one of them from point blank) that.
>>25735502But a vindicare's weapons should be magical in nature. Homu was the rare exception since her powers don't fit in a clean category and she chose to use guns.Why would a normal meguca not use her magically powered arms?
>>25735459>Also between family heirloom and her former vindicare lover's weapon, it can only be one or the other...or they were really close, like almost a family. Or a family. It could be just a manner of speech indicating that it belonged to someone really precious to her.
>>25735491This is the best auggestion so far, though do drop back to violence if they insist.
>>25735537>>Why would a normal meguca not use her magically powered arms?To conserve magic, maybe? I mean, their MP kind of doubles as their HP...
>>25735445>[x] put hat on.If they recognise it, they'll scram.If not, kneecap them.
>>25735445Wait, wait, wait. These guys just... walked in armed and unannounced? How are they not lying in a bloody heap already? We are some shitty security.
>>25735537because modern weapons are much cooler than flintlocks
>>25735537Well, you know how Mami uses her muskets?Her actual powers are ribbons, but the musket is the best she can construct with those.What I'm saying is, "maybe because they're kind of shit?"
>>25735445[x] DEagle up."Out. Now."
>>25735491Changing my vote to this
>>25735549You remember the yakuza hit that we chose not to take?That underboss was of Japan's largest Yakuza group.My money is on the same.
>>25735445[X] Use them as punching bags
>>25735491>>25735515This. Start with politeness, since public appearance is important here, but if it turns violent we shouldn't hesitate to execute every last one of these fuckers should it prove necessary. Security of the principle is our primary concern.
>>25735573Didn't Kyouko take care of that mission?
>>25735554And Sayaka.Where the fuck is sh...OOOOH maybe she waits for our first move?Or has shounen-style battle on the rooftop with some MG
>>25735583Maybe?But the fact is that we're probably dealing with the same syndicate.
>>25735494>take the huge rifle, bash the boss in the faceDammit, no! That'll just throw the sniper rifle out of alignment. We have a baseball bat with nails in our shield for a reason!
>>25735413If you take off the hat it looks like she'd be a bit below the line, so she might be closer to 168/5'5".Still, healthy gal.
We're going to have the gather the security personnel for a meeting.The next person who takes a bribe is going to have his knees shot off.Starting with the one who took the current one.A fucking example needs to be set.
>>25735445>[x] Professional.Wait for them to react, if they say anything other than "Yes ma'am, no ma'am, three bags full ma'am." then step forward and (with just a hint of boredom) say "Miss Kirishima has requested that you leave. Please do so before I am obligated to remove you from the premises."
>>25735445as politely for them to leave. if he doesnt, ask Ruri for permission to escort him and his friends out of the hotel with extreme prejudice.
>>25735445>ContractSo, which bastard mutant cat is so lazy he is using Yakuza to do his recruiting for him?
>>25735605But It's right there!And looks intimidating as fuck!
>>25735598REMOVE FROM PREMISES
>>25735612Yeah, once the guys currently in the room are dealt with, we should probably have .40Cal words with whichever shit-for-brains decided his own judgement/pocket change was more important than his employer's direct, absolute orders.
>>25735431>Ruri looks at you with an expression of mingled despair, like someone desperate to get her point across. "It's...it's like she's this perfect M, and you just want to bully her and make her cry whenever you see her--"Holy shit, we can NEVER let this girl meet Midori.
>>25735445>[x]Place a hand on our shield, ready to spin it into Timestop. "Ms. Kirishima is asking you businessmen to leave. This meeting is at an end."

>>25735445Yay, its a job that we can do!>[x]Get the suits to leave."I'm sorry. Kirishima Ruri as asked for you to leave. If you do not comply when I will evict you from the premises.

>>25735635Hang on, what's this categorising people by letters shit? We are apparently 'super S', now Spaghetti is 'perfect M'Am I missing something?

>>25735445[x] "I believe the lady asked you to leave." Assuming they don't listen to the magical girl cosplayer, we continue with threat of excessive force. After all, we've been itching to shoot someone all day, and now room service has sent up some lovely new bullet sponges for us.
>>25735612Just ONCE I'd like a security staff that is both competent and loyal.Every single security job we've been on, the security has either been incompetent, compromised, or both.
>>25735659Sadist and Masochist, anon. Though it really says something about Ruri if she classifies people that way so readily.
>>25735635At least now we know why she enjoys Murder Mayumi x Miracle Midori so much. Hell, she probably considers Mayumi/Chiaki to be a role model for how she WANTS to be, in terms of coolness; would certainly explain why she seems disconcerted yet interested at our dispassionate view of violence.
>>25735659Oh my.Oh my, oh my oh my oh my.arararararararararara~You don't know?SadoMaso
>>25735655T>>25735660Huh. Well I swear we've heard of Tojo SOMEWHERE before...>>25735659Sadistic Masochistic
>>25735657Then we need to teach them to FEAR Chiaki MORE.Because what the yaks might only kill you. And you don't want to see what Chiaki does to those who displease her.
>>25735445Put self between Ruri and the Yaks, "You were asked to leave, please be reasonable and do so as soon as humanly possible."
>>25735659>SSlang/shorthand for Sadist>MDitto, but for MasochistBoth in the rather sexual sense, usually.
>>25735657No, see, if that's the case, then they need to be trained on how to alert others, make sure that there's always someone else watching your back, and generally operate like operators.
WAITAre we still o. Webcam?DID RURI HIRE THESE GUYS FOR US TO KILL BECAUSE THIS IS SUSPICIOUS
>>25735704I THINK we're off-camera right now, but she may have one running in the room or something.
>>25735659Oh my child, the things I could show you.
>>25735704I'm pretty sure Sayaka is in another room.
>>25735704Can't hear you.Busy killing
>>25735704Wobcom is off
>>25735491Come to think of it we can knock people out while we are in timestop.
>>25735704No, she had the webcam turned off during breakfast, at the same time she sent Iori, Sayaka, and Noriko out of the room.So they wouldn't be able to help us or get in the way.
>>25735704The cam went out with Sayaka and Spaghetti. We can probably murder these guys safely.
>>25735718OR SO YOU THINK
>>25735700Remember last time we had operators for security?And they would cost a lot. Murderface + SpecOps security detail would kinda negate a lot profit I think.
>>25735445[x]Polite command to leave.[x]Timestop, confiscate their weaponry. Further insistence.
>>25735670...I'm a fucking idiot.
Tiem stop, confisticate weapons, THEN ask them to leave. Politely. AlsoCHECK FOR CAMERA WHILE TIMESTOPPED.I suspect she's setting us up for a webshow. She's already done it before.
>>25735771This this this!
>>25735445Remove himPainfully as possible
>>25735445Whatever happens we must react with deadpan.>Kyaaaa It's Murder Mayumi time, motherfuckers.or end with>eat some Kirakiras, prickTHEN do the victory sign to Ruri
>>25735431Unrelated to the current discussion - Ghost noises! I knew it!
When we kill them, we need to do it completly dispassionately. Just to weird ruri the fuck out.
>>25735799>implying Decu didn't just steal your ideaHe does it all the time, too.
I think that regardless of how this goes down, we should question QB about QB Heavy Industry's relationship with the Tojo Group. Are they a frequent client, or a competitor? And if the latter, how much of a thorn in our side is their competition, and how much is it costing our bottom line. A little competition is good, but if it starts cutting into our profits too much, we should take measures to prune the opposition.
>>25735812>implying it's not just anons being very, very good at predictionsWe're, like, awesome at it.
>>25735812I know how it works but I'm still pretty amused that's what he went with.
>>25735799And it is all the more hilarious for it.
Ruri doesn't sound idol-like right now and she presented us as a cosplayer, not security. I doubt she would set a camera to show this.
"You seem a reasonable man. Let me present a counter-offer on my clients behalf.">Remove ALL the Kneecaps.
>>25735859How positively Darwinian.
>>25735874How Native American
>>25735859"See? Chiaki chan is the best Mayumi cosplayer ever! Not only does she have the looks, but also the skills to back them up! Why, its almost like she IS Murder Mayumi! But that would just be SILLY, tee hee."
I get your enthusiasm guys, but have you considered that causing permanent injuries to civilians who haven't actually done or threatened anything violent yet might incur legal troubles? I don't think the officio or Chiaki are immune to criminal charges.
>>25735659What the others said.Another useful abbreviation is NTR standing for "not too rough".
>>25735917>legal problemsWith our Officio's capabilities this is nothing.Nothing.
[x] "I believe the lady asked you to leave."Let's show our gun last to avoid trouble. I'm pretty sure we'll be the first to shoot if required.
>>25735917They're trespassing while armed.
>>25735929... You evil, evil person
>>25735938that doesn't mean it's going to look good, or not be a black mark on our file for Kyuubey.
>>25735917Look at it this way; if they all die, there won't be anyone to file charges.>"Yakuza? What Yakuza? Nobody here would ever let Yakuza in the building, right guys?">"N-no miss Matsuda. Never."
>>25735950I think our file is already basically a sheet of paper dipped in ink.
>>25735917It's no problem if the witnesses keep their mouths shut and the bodies vanish.
>>25735929*ahem* fortunately, I'm stupid.Not entirely ignorant...
>>25735950Oh come on.What about people getting killed by witches or other shit?We most likely have whole dedicated floor in our building to deal just with that.For those ladies It's a matter of what, three sheets of papers more?
>>25735929>NTR standing for "not too rough"
>>25735944Illegally armed I might add.
>>25735965Ya know, considering that these are Yakuza goons, they've probably got cheap North Korean or Chinese knock-off's of Russian Tokarevs and Makarovs. What are the chances that their boss has something nicer, though?I'd like Chiaki to come out of Timestop with their guns, going "Junk, junk, junk, oh hello. What's this? Expensive taste. I like it. For that, you get to die not so painfully."
>>25735983The difference is that Witches are a force of nature we have no control over, and in fact it's our job to try and prevent them from doing just that. Even in a dark, cynical world, magical girls murdering indiscriminantly is still frowned upon, and tends to be grounds for retirement.
>>25736017Right now, duscriminate murder is our job description.This us what we're here fir.
>>25736016Or "Oh look something decent for once, this one must be yours, also junk" and then throw it in the pile.
>>25736017There is no difference that matters.People are dissapearing all the fucking time.And those guys are currently in the middle of our work.
>>25735917Coobs has the legal stuff taken care of. A few MGs work as lawyers, or at least that's what I got from this bit in the 11th thread:>The floor you're on looks more of a typical office setting than anything - cubicles are aplenty, with your fellow magical girls in formal office uniform, clicking away at laptops. Contrary to knee-jerk assumptions, not all Magical Girls under Kyuubey's employ are field agents >like you, Sayaka and Kyoko - there are others who perform other tasks that are just as crucial. Mission support, logistics, medical officers, research, even legal. >You hear that there's even a PR department, although you're not quite sure how that works. What do they do, make posters and action figures of you or something?
>>25736013Can we get Jack Frost (or Black Frost even) as a familiar?
>>25736039Or "Ah, expensive taste. Also shit-tier taste, and the mark of an amateur wannabe."Depending on the gun.
>>25736055>>You hear that there's even a PR department, although you're not quite sure how that works. What do they do, make posters and action figures of you or something?I bet they're the ones who ponied up the funds for the fucking anime.
>>25736017>Even in a dark, cynical world, magical girls murdering indiscriminantly is still frowned upon, and tends to be grounds for retirement.Good thing they're in the way of our work and probably won't go quietly. Gonna need several bodybags for this. If we see anyone else from the organization after this, might have to think about purging them for causing trouble to our client.
>>25736056How about this?
>>25736056We get Raiho, Kyouko gets pyro jack, sayaka gets jack frostMidori gets Mara
>>25735491 >>25735581 >>25735615The lead yak sighs the sigh of the massively-bereaved, his rather bulky shoulders going up and down in a theatrical shrug. "Please, just hear us out, Miss Kirishima. I'm prepared to offer you twice what I did the last time, along with all the benefits of being a member of Tojo productions. Why, we'll even make you our flagship idol, if you're worried about starting from scratch. Please reconsider--""No! I don't care about your damn offer, I told you to GET OUT!" Ruri takes what appears to be a walkie-talkie from her bedside drawer. "Hello? Hello, security! Get up here right this minute!"It's here that you finally insinuate yourself into this little scene, placing yourself in between your client and the yakuza. For some reason, they didn't seem to have noticed you, all their eyes riveted to the idol. Suits you just fine, really - and you'd have taken the opportunity with a machinegun if you could. But not right now, not when a pile of bullet-riddled bodies would prove inconvenient to your client."Excuse me?" The yak stops in his approach, his piercing eyes narrowing at you. "Stand aside, girl. I've business with Kirishima, not you. Don't get involved."Cute. You shake your head at this. "Miss Kirishima is asking you businessmen to leave. This meeting has ended." You say this as quietly and as politely as you can, and it's with nonchalant slowness that you place a hand on the rim of your Shield. Ready to slam it into Time Stop the very first moment you're given a reason to. The lead yak opens his mouth to protest, before realization visibly dawns upon him - his eyes straying to your costume, then at the Shield on your arm. It's then that he steps back and smiles, like that of a shark just sighting its next meal.[1/2]
>>25736113"Ah. I see. A Magical Girl escort, Miss Kirishima? How every quaint. And very clever." He chuckles. "Although, one has to wonder if this kind of security is warranted? Surely Miss Kirishima doesn't think she's in any sort of danger that requires the protection of one of...them?" He cocks his head towards you, the gesture making his slicked-back hair gleam in the overhead lighting."I do, if scum like you are getting up here like you own the place," Ruri spits, clearly frazzled by this encounter. "Chiaki-chan? If one of them makes a sudden move, you've my permission to shoot their kneecaps out."She doesn't even need to say it."Oh, don't blame them, please. They're just hardworking men who wish to go back to their wives and families after a hard day's work, of guarding one of Japan's most precious jewels." The yak smiles again, before looking down at you. "Young lady, I do apologize that we had to meet like this. May I ask your name, and from which Officio do you hail from?"Well, this is new. Normally, yakuza don't last long enough to ask you your name. Normally all they do is screaming.How do you respond?
>>25736123I don't like this.I don't like this at all.
>>25736123"If you don't know me already, then you don't need to know. Now, I believe you were leaving?"Seriously, we're massively famous in the Magical Girl world. They're either outsiders fishing, or they know and they're trying to act coy. Either way, we don't have time for this shit.
>>25736123How the flying shit does a random yak know about Officios?
>>25736111Raiho you say?
>>25736123[x]"I don't make a habit of telling the dead my name. My employer has asked you to leave. Do so, or die."
>>25736123[x] "Chiaki Matsuda, Ninth Officio. And may I ask your name, businessman of the Tojo Group?"Keep it cool, keep it professional. Standard Yakuza greeting protocol; name and gumi.
>>25736123"No, you may not. You may leave or you may die. Those are the choices available to you today."
>>25736123[x] "No. You may not."
>>25736123[X] Chiaki Matsuda. You may know me better as Murderface. And if they want to go back tot heir families, then they'll know better than to give me a reason to shot them.Chiaki use Intimidation!But let's keep the warmaster part in check for now.
>>25736123[x]Fuck him, less talking, more getting the fuck out.If he as much as dares to drop some big name, THEN introduce fully.And for the love of the heavens should anything make us as much as twitch, we timestop
>>25736123[x] Murder MayumiHA.GOOGLE THAT YOU FUCK AND SEE IF YOU CAN GET INFO OUT OF THAT
>>25736123"Guess I'm not as infamous as you said, Kirishima. The name's Murderface."
>>25736123"I'm sorry, I thought your business was with Miss Kirishima. Not me. And I just informed you, that business was concluded. Don't let me detain you."
>>25736123>If you want my name so badly, you can ask the dead. Shall I send you to them? Now vanish.
>>25736123[X]You have no further business here, please leave immediately.not telling them our name and officio.
>>25736123>[x] If you know about magical girls, but don't know about me yet then you don't deserve that information. This one is on the house however. Murderface
>>25736123"Leave. now"TELL HIM NOTHING
[X]Put on warmaster hat and reply Chiaki
>>25736174[x] Do itCurrently just a cosplayer after all, ahahaha.
>>25736165We're not Yakuza, though. We're demonstrably a hell of a lot better than they are. We don't need to make time for their stupid faux-formal bullshit.[x] for *not* telling them our name.
>>25736123This >>25735791suddenly seems like a good idea
>>25736123[x] "I'm afraid not, I don't deal with civilians unless they hire me."Please don't be morons and give out our identity to regular people, even if they're at least partially in the know.
>>25736154We're massively famous by reputation, but remember that we have gone over something of a massive make-over recently.Also, with the Yakuza being in a related industry with overlapping markets, it would stand to reason that they would know something about us.>>25736155He's probably high-enough on their management track to know about Magical Girls.You don't send a low-level thug when the person being shaken down is worth millions, and has to stay unharmed for them to be worth that much.
>>25736174If we're not going to just outright say no, this is the next-best choice."Surely you've heard of the infamous Murder Mayumi?"
For fucks like you?Murderface
>>25736212Nothing better than spreading misinformation, haha.
>>25736155They've probably hired Magical Girls for business dealings before.>>25736212Seconding this. Also, perhaps we should troll Dickbutt and say we're from the Tenth Officio, just to get the Yaks pissed at them if possible.
>>25736174Heh, do this.
>>25736169>[x] "No, you may not. You may leave or you may die. Those are the choices available to you today."
>>25736123>[x] Put the hat on.
>>25736123>>25736180[X] "I'm sorry, I thought your business was with Miss Kirishima. Not me. And I just informed you, that business was concluded. Don't let me detain you."Not even the time of the day. I'd bet that Yak has MG backup of his own, though.
Anyone else getting warning bells that letting them leave alive will only make things worse for us in the long run?I'm leaning towards killing them the moment they leave Ruri's room.Yes, murdering them all when they're being "civil" may be a bit of overkill and would be a pain to justify to coobs afterwards, but this just seems reaaaaaaaally suspicious.I won't vote for anything yet, I just want to know if I'm the only one who thinks "Shoot first, ask questions later" might be the right way to go here.
>>25736154>>25736169Seconding these. They must leave, no info given. Do so politely if we must, but do not volunteer any info.
i like the idea of calling our self Murder Mayumi but that might not work to well to send them off, if one of them has read it.
>>25736241"Missing" tends to mean dead in Yak work.Which would invite an unwanted reprisal against Ruri. This can be either in the form of a direct attack or an attack on her fan, like say, the stadium.Honestly, too much trouble.
>>25736154THIS FER CHRISSAKESWe are one of the most infamous MGs in the world, and most certainly THE most locally. While we may have gotten a hairxut we are still damned recognizable.If he doesn't know who we are on sight then he is out of the loop.
>>25736241We should get on the phone to QB IMMEDIATELY.
>>25736256>Yaks>Act hardcore>Reading MMxMMHa.I sorry but hahahahaha.
>>25736123If you don't know my name already then I am not wasting my breath telling someone who is going to dieI am giving you five seconds to be out of here and on the way down before I write my name on the pavement with your corpses for the next idiot to find
>>25736239>I'd bet that Yak has MG backup of his own, though.When was the last time we killed a meguca? This would make for good exercise before purging their entire organization. If they make any suspicious moves, of course.>inb4 Ruri falls in love with us after this
>>25736241Shooting them without reasonable provocation would cause more problems for the client than leaving them alive could cause for us right now.>>25736256>that might not work to well to send them off, if one of them has read it.>Yak thug cracks a joke about us being some cosplay pornstar>"No, like I said, I'm Murder Mayumi. And you're annoying me.">Shoot his kneecaps out
>>25736265It makes me sad we have gone from 'shoot the bastard mutant cat on sight' to 'this looks ambiguous PHONE THE BOSS!',
>>25736270are you saying that yaks dont have hobbies too? someone at his probably high level might have read it for 'research' on possible on the job dangers
>>25736123[x]"Giving you my name would imply that I care to know yours, as long as you're standing here and impeding my job. Goodbye."
>>25736288>someone at his probably high level might have read it for 'research' on possible on the job dangers"So, these magical girls, the fuck are they actually capable of?""Lesbian tentacle rape, I think.""Shiiiiiiit. ....Make Kenji handle this one."
>>25736288No but a yuri doujin?Yak automatically prey on Otakus already. I can't see them actually getting into MMxMM. Just about everyone we're ran into who read it has been female, too. Which might be another indicator.
>>25736287To be fair, what bad has QB actually done to us in this world?
>>25736174[x] "Murder Mayumi"HUE
>>25736304>"So, these magical girls, the fuck are they actually capable of?">the tongue trick>mother of god
>>25736045>>25736076Kyuubey wasn't entirely happy with how Kharn operated, and it wasn't just because she slept around. And Kirika was slated for retirement for similar. While we can get away with substantially more murder than the average bear, it's still something to keep in mind that there is an upper limit, especially when it may come to people who may possibly be unaffiliated with whatever our potential target is.
>>25736316Made us the warmaster?This position has been nothing but SHADOWRUNS EVERYWHERE
>>25736338>implying the other jobs will not also be shadowruns.>The position already involves so many shadowruns
>>25736334>This position has been nothing but SHADOWRUNS EVERYWHEREPretty sure that's just us.
>>25736316True, it was the reliance/seeking permission aspect I was grumbling about more than 'Y U NO SHOOT CAT?'
I made this the other day when I was bored.
>>25736347I actually think you are onto something hereWe may have met the first honestly decent person in this world
>>25736123[x] "I'm Murder Mayumi, and you're getting the fuck out of here right now."If we're smoking, breathe some smoke onto his face, too. We are Super-S after all.
>>25736357We should change to calling Mami.She basically Moneypenny at this point. Call the secretary, instead of the boss. The very powerful and influential secretary.
>>25736363haha, that's pretty good.

>>25736394Sure as hell ain't Ruri, I don't care how many benevolent chessmaster gambits she claims to pull off.
>>25736394It's Pinky, brah.
>>25736363Decu lives in the SDM? I can't believe that.
>>25736428No he lives on the moon
>>25736428...I like it when he lets me out of the basement.
>>25736428Given his bizarre timezone, living in Gensoyoko would not surprise me in the least
>>2573636310/10, bretty gud
>>25736455His timezone is perfectly fine. Always starts in the middle of the day in Europe and ends in the evening. Very comfortable.
>>25736443You! Who let you out! I should stuff you into the box!
Are we going to add "the box" to the drawfag to-do list?
>>25736443>wendy is flandre>midori is sakuyaEverything is making sense
>>25736486But...but ghosts live in there. Why would you do that? Why would you ever do that?
>>25736484Fuck you it's 5:30 in the morning I have gone three days with barely any sleep last time we got a major update spree.Fucking Europe. Fucking timezones.
>>25736505>Wendy's officio refers to members as rabbits.>Flan was once visited by Tewi and Reisen.
>>25736484Which means even if you can't participate, it's right there to catch up with when you get home!
WaitIf Ruri was In live with us before we became Chiaki Does that mean Sayaka knows her?Is that why shes so disgusted?"Ruri I've wanted to meet you sooooo muc-Oh crap, its YOU. Fuck everything."
>>25736513Sleep is overrated. You can do it!>>25736541Pretty much, my good sir. It's the perfect set up for me.
>>25736556So I was thinking...Ruri is kind of an S, apparently, and Noriko is the perfect M, as well as the exact sort of person that would thoughtlessly contract like instantly.What if Ruri is in love with Noriko?
>>25736556I'm pretty sure she'd recognize Ruri before that if such was the case.
>>25736556That would require Sayaka to have Lois Lane level inablilty to not recognise the same person.
>>25736584>You hurt those you love
>>25736584Maybe. To me it seems more like they just have an odd friendship.
>>25736600Makeup and wig.
>>25736611I agree this is more likely, but the thought was nagging at me.
I really wish we'd brought Gore Father. Nothing says respect me like a large chainsaw sword.
>>25736644I do wonder how long they've known each other though. I mean I can't see a girl like Noriko choosing that line of work, maybe they've known each other since before she was famous.
>>25736584The Magical Girl Ruri was in love with was actually the original Ruri. When she broke their relationship apart, current!Ruri murdered her, then in a fit of grief and self-loathing contracted with a wish to take the original Ruri's place and live out her dead lover's dream of being a world famous idol. This accounts for the dead body double; that was original!Ruri, murdered by her former lover, current!Ruri.
>>25736652Aren't Gore<familial relation> both Axes, that stick together to make BIGGER AXE?
>>25736652Its an axe. And theres two of them.
>>25736652>chainsaw swordIt's a chainaxe, brah
>>25736668Woah. That would be something.
>>25736668so much shadows
>>25736668I might need to reread it, but didn't almost the exact same thing happen in Kazumi?
>>25736584Or Ruri is a bit both S and M and Noriko let's her practice her S side a bit more while she waits for another S to dominate herLike a certain antisocial gravelly voiced magical girl
>>25736700I can't actually remember most of the plot of Kazumi Magica. All I can recall is there was some kind of massive "YOU DONE FUCKED THIS SHIT ALL UP REAL GOOD BITCHES!" reveal towards the end.Goddamn it, now I need to reread it as well.
>>25736652You're thinking of Skulltaker/Malal, Kharn's two-handed chainsword, which she kept hold of. The two axes are the Golden Weapon she gave us.
>>25736668I was originally thinking that something like this had happened - either that current!Ruri contracted to live out original!Ruri's life, or that current!Ruri is original!Ruri's Callidus lover, who then used her powers to replace original!Ruri after her untimely death. I think either way the timeline doesn't work out, though? We were told that the dead body double was several albums in, and she was singing about Magical Girls and being famous from her first album?
>>25736708I don't think I can picture Chiaki dominating anyone. Ruri's going to be disappointed.Well, anyone except for pancakes.
>>25736808Well there is a third optionRuri is Ruri, her meguca waifu was a callidus and took the bullet for her
>>25736808>We were told that the dead body double was several albums in, and she was singing about Magical Girls and being famous from her first album?Original!Ruri was a Magical Girl and an idol. Current!Ruri was just a regular girl caught in a whirlwind romance. When she says she knows it's a bad idea to date Magical Girls, she knows because she killed the one she dated and took her place in every possible way - except in her own heart.
>>25736123>>25736209This than this>>25736230
>>25736859Wait, do we even know her lover's dead? Everyone's talking about it like it's confirmed.
>>25736859>Current!Ruri was just a regular girl caught in a whirlwind romance.She also has the voice of an angel.
>>25736872Nope. It's heavily implied that she either died or something terrible happened, but nothing confirmed.
>>25736872>>25736887It could still just be that she thought Kharn wanted more than a one night stand.
>>25736858Ruri is Ruri, her meguca waifu was originally a girl who looked up to Ruri and fell in love with her, whose wish was to be more like her love? So she slowly started changing physical appearance until she was almost Ruri's body double. That explains why there was a family who identified the body as their daughter - it *was* their daughter, who'd slowly taken on Ruri's appearance as part of her (Callidus?) powers.
>>25736154 >>25736173 >>25736180 >>25736184You shake your head at this. "I'm sorry, I thought your business was with Miss Kirishima. Not me. And I just informed you, that business was concluded." You step forward, suddenly, causing the six-foot slab of italian suit-wrapped muscle and oily pompadour to step back again. "Don't. Let me. Detain you."This is diplomacy, right? Mami told you you'd need to be diplomatic sometimes, as Warmaster. It isn't so bad, after all - it's actually pretty fun. The only hard part is stopping yourself from shooting someone."Yes, well. I see Miss Kirishima has chosen her escort well." The yakuza seems to compose himself after a moment, before suddenly bowing to you. Holding out with both hands what looks to be a calling card. "We of the Tojo Group respect the hard work you and your fellow Magical Girls do for our business. It's not much, but please accept this."You blink at this sudden show of...reverence, before taking the card. You don't have one of your own, and despite yourself, you find yourself apologizing for this. "Perfectly all right." It's then that he straightens up, and looks back at Ruri. "I'll take my leave today, Miss Kirishima, but if you change your mind--""I WON'T!""...If you do, please don't hesitate to call me no matter the hour. I will be happy to accomodate and welcome you to the Group personally." He turns to you and nods, the smile on his face almost servile, craven, except for the fact that they never seemed to reach his eyes. "Good day to you both." It's then that he turns around, and ushers his goon out of the room - but not before nearly bumping into Sayaka and Deepthroat, with the latter holding up the camera.[1/2]
>>25736909>with the latter holding up the cameraGOD FUCKING DAMN IT NORIKO GET IN THE BOX.
>>25736909Oh, this is going to end well
>>25736859>Original!Ruri was a Magical Girl and an idol. Current!Ruri was just a regular girl caught in a whirlwind romance. When she says she knows it's a bad idea to date Magical Girls, she knows because she killed the one she dated and took her place in every possible way - except in her own heart.Actually, she doesn't have to have killed her. It could simply be that the original Ruri died. And so she grieved, and decided she wanted to take over to finish keep doing what Ruri herself did -- singing.
>>25736909Someone called this.
>>25736909>I will be happy to accomodate and welcome you to the Group personally."With his dick, right?
>>25736938That person was me.I am torn between sm ugness and exasperation because you didn't listen.
>>25736909"Huh? Who're you guys?" Sayaka asks, confused and angry about being confused. "Hey! Watch where you're going, you fu--nny-smelling idiot!" The Eversor deftly censors herself as she gets pushed aside by a rather beefy goon shoving past her. Deepthroat doesn't fare any better, being buffetted here and there, but she makes a valiant show of keeping the camera trained at the yaks - which probably helped in getting them to leave all the more quickly."Fucking yaks," Blueberry snarls as the last of them finally leaves, the door closing behind them. "Heard you from next door, Murderface. They give you any trouble?"No, they didn't. Nearly did. ...If she heard everything, why didn't she burst in, too? You'd have appreciated the help, at least. ...And where's Iori?"Nah, you sounded like you got everything under control. I was actually waiting for the gunshots to start. Color me surprised when you didn't even pistol-whip one in the face just to make a point." It's here that she grins, before noticing that Deepthroat's still going on with the camera, her knees knocking together. "Er...you don't hafta pretend anymore, they're gone. Oh, and Iori had to go, earlier. Told us she'll be back, she needs to get to the dance routine practice early, something like that." She catches the look you're giving her. "Jeez, I made sure she got to her car fine, okay? Yaks weren't here yet when she did. Told me to tell you to be careful, too, and she'll talk to you later.Well. Alright, that's fine -- wait. You're not webcasting right now?"N-no, that's not until later," Deepthroat replies shakily. "It was...it was Miss Sayaka's idea, to make them think they were gonna end up on the webcast..."Huh. There's a thing. You thought Sayaka was all about the choppy, not the cunning."Hey! I can be cunning too!".[2/3]
>>25736940Is there any other way?And which megucas work for the Yaks?
>>25736909BURN THE CARD
>>25736909Well I think it is time we explained who Sayaka really is to RuriAnd to get Ruri to talk to Sayaka so that she can see that she is what she originally thought ( apparently ) instead of what she got which was probably full Idol mode
>>25736964>And which megucas work for the Yaks?Juubey I'd guess. Yakuza wouldn't be any worse than Otaku rape squad.
>>25736963>"Hey! I can be cunning too!".Brutally cunning? Or cunningly brutal?
>>25736961Now how do you feel?Blueberry is really growing on me.
>>25736964From in game knowledge?The tenth and his Pleiades SaintsEvery time I think of Jyubey having a group called the saints I get this images of the cockney voiced third streets saints boss as an incubator for some reason
>>25736963"It...it was very cunning, really.." Deepthroat smiles, before shakign her head. "Those yakuza has been...f-following Ruri-sama ever since she got back to Japan...we think...um..." Her sunken, ringed eyes look towards Ruri, who seems to be breathing in and out into a paper bag. Visibly trying to calm herself down.Well. Who'd have thought. Super idol gets nervy because some yaks came to visit.You glance at the card you're given.>Mine Yoshitaka>Hakuho-kai President>Tojo GroupMine Yoshitaka, huh? You put the calling card in your inventory. May come in handy. You should probably ask Kyuubey about this group later, too."We think that someone in my own production firm's in cahoots with them," Ruri finishes Deepthroat's hanging sentence for her, gasping all the while. "And because of that, my...my security's compromised. That's the other reason why I hired you, Chiaki-chan. I want you to help me root out whoever's behind it, and get them to the proper authorities to be dealt with."...To the proper authorities? No, she can just give you five minutes alone in a room with all of her staff, and you'll find who it is. They'll be leaving the place in a bodybag.Ruri blinks at this, before shaking her head. Managing a smile and a wink despite her obviously frazzled state. "That's...that's not how Justice works, Chiaki-chan.""Yeah, that's not how Justice works at all." Sayaka says, suddenly smug as she crosses her arms under her chest."Besides, I can do it in three."She can just shut up."No."
>>25736963>You're not webcasting right now?Ohhhhh, thank fuck. That could've been problematic. We need to get a chance to debrief Sayaka before they start filming, and to talk to Ruri about the webcast and how we may need it switched off if we're about to start shooting.
>>25736963Yeah, pretty cunning.But I was diplomatic.Praise me
>>25736992>cunningly on Kyouko
>>25736963Can we get a drawfag to whip up an Ork dressed in Sayaka's costume and wig holding a choppa and tapping its head with its free hand while saying "I iz cunnin' too!"
>>25736992Now I'm picturing Sayaka and Kyoko as Gork & Mork.
>>25737002Now I am torn between feeling silly and feeling proud of Blueberry.
>>25736965Read first, THEN BURN BABY BURN
>>25737002Blueberry has been gaining points recently. Maybe with a little work we can upgrade her from btich to friendly rival.
>>25737007>the cockney voiced third streets saints boss Best Saint or Bestest Saint?
>>25737007>Every time I think of Jyubey having a group called the saints I get this images of the cockney voiced third streets saints boss as an incubator for some reasonFuck. I want a MGNQ saints row mod now.
>>25737015We should phone Mami and tell her we didn't shoot any Yakuza. We didn't even draw a weapon of any sort!This, of course, call for pancakes.
>>25737010Actually the webcast might be our best protection of allIf the Yaks think that anything they do will end up on the Internet then they will probably think twice about trying anything direct to get Ruri to sign while we are on this jobSo avoiding the shooting and preferably doing anything too violent off camera is a good idea since it will keep our client safer
And that's that for tonight's thread! MGNQ resumes tomorrow! Thank you for your participation, feedback is always appreciated! My apologies for the delay, the weather hasn't been too nice to the Internet!Questions answered while I try and stop laughing at >>25736363 !
>>25737051>>25737052Only male voice worth having
>>25737060Okay, so, did the fuckhueg sniper rifle in Ruri's possession used to belong to her meguca lover? Is the meguca dead?
>>25737039Russian girl Boss is good. I heard all of Kharn's dialogue in her voice.
>>25737078Oh shit I thought I was the only one who was doing thatThe character even matches it pretty well which is what made me think of the cockney boss being Jyubey
>>25737009Sayaka and Ruri just went Amelia on us.
>>25737060Does Midori feel a bit jealous of/threatened by Mami and Iori for Chiaki's attentions?
>>25737009Next thread:Roll eyes and comment that even if the Yakuza were brought to the proper authorities, they could easily get out again, either through bribes or by putting pressure on one politician or another.Our method is much quicker and less of a hassle.
>>25737037I think she's already there. Her bitchiness is done to deliberately fuck with us now.
>>25737060Alright, Thanks for the Thread!Ebook will be updated in an hour or so!
>>25737060Thank you for the thread! Here's the current progress as of the end of this thread.
>>25737078Russian girl boss has my favorite line. I can't remember the exacty words but she wonders if she should call her cousin Niko to go bowling.
>>25737060thanks for running.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20Questarchive is up as usual. have a good night gentlemen.
>>25737121I love it.
>>25737077Hahaha! I can say with certainty that no, it isn't, and it is a family heirloom.Also, well, you'll see!>>25737102There's a good possibility!
>>25737060Will we get a chance to help Ruri make ghost noises outside "the box"?
>>25737060where's the green-green decu? you said there would be green-green!
>>25737155That's pretty possible, considering Murderface needs to be with Ruri at all times, even when she's sleeping!
>>25737182At the end of the first day of this job at the earliest, IIRC. The day is not over yet.
>>25737182Ahh, the writeup's not done yet, from what I hear from the writer! But it's being done for sure!
A question for everyone: I can't decide if I like Ruri or not. Anyone else conflicted?
>>25737203Are we going to see Bitch Quest soon?
>>25737213Bitch until proved otherwise
>>25737213I do like her. The idea for the box won me over.
>>25737215I think Midori's just getting a write-up, not a whole quest.
>>25737213I like her as a character at least. Still suspicious.
>>25737244>Midori>BitchOh no you didn't.
>>25737229I Just realized after god knows how many times seeing that picture that it is strongbadWords cannot express the slow
>>25737244That's funny. You're funny. I mean this one.
>>25737264Also posting this one because I don't think anyone has yet.
>>25737264>>25737272seem them both... i think?great stuff.
>>25737291They were both linked on decu's twitter, but I dunno if everyone in threads follows it.
>>25737215Most probably by the end of the first day of this mission! I'll probably put it to a vote or such by then.
What... What if Noriko was the insider and acting weak like that?
>>25737338Then we give her an Oscar before dispersing Justice.
>>25737338I want to guess that if Ruri weren't extremely certain Noriko was trustworthy she wouldn't be here. She's probably not even part of the company, and even if she is, she's also the only one in the company we've actually dealt with here, and the only one, likely, that's privy to this information.Or she's a great actor and Ruri is a sap. Or is in love with her. And she's Magical Maso Noricchi.
>>25737338Or because she hated how she's being treated, but is too afraid to straight up quit/ she's geen given an offer she can't refuse.
>>25737356What if we present the award internally? Just make a hole and presto, instant shelf.
>>25737397Would that count as a posthumous award?
>>25737411Not if she's a magical girl.
>>25737419She'd make an okay Callidus, probably. Awkward enough for a Culexus, but that's right out.
>>25737432...Looks like Rabbit material to me.
>>25737449>ya blew it, Eightball...or did he? They were in Santa Destroy at some point..
>>25737120Ebooks updated: http://pastebin.com/kbGzcbDb
>>25737060Thanks for the thread!Will Ruri remain S after we put on the hat, or is she a closet M?
>>25737688Can ANYONE remain S in the presence of The Hat?
>>25737757Only one person can.
>>25737882Mami`s secret is that she is LEWD all the time.
