(Alright, a little explaining for why it's been so long. With my ejection from my college course, I needed to get a job. However, since my resume is a steaming pile of dogshit, I've started doing volunteer work on weekdays so my resume isn't so shit.)Previous thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/1485715/Charsheet: https://pastebin.com/as7jUTfkYou are Ryoma Shizuhara, a young man living with his grandfather in the small town of Hashigata while your mother goes under chemotherapy.So far, you've been trying to rescue Momoko Ayabe with the help of your classmate Hiroji Kotoku, and a mysterious girl named Yolanda. However, yesterday's attempt was cut short due to a grueling battle with a strong Shadow.>4/18, Afterschool>Momoko's soul will be replaced in 10 days...What are you going to do?>Go to the Occult Research Club>Look for Momoko>Hang out with Hiroji>Go downtown>Write in

>>1583084>Look for Momoko
>>1583436>>1583459>>1583907You text Hiroji after class, telling him that you're going back to the Reflected World. After entering the mirror, you, Yolanda, and Hiroji return to the spot where you fought that merciless ox-headed Shadow. As you look around what you assume to be a mahjong parlor, you feel like you're missing something...>Roll 1d100 to search

You turn around to see a section of the wall has opened up, revealing a hallway. "Secret doors?" remarks Hiroji. "I thought Momoko-san was a sukeban, not a spy movie villain...">"No...but that's what the other delinquents see her as.">"I think the girls who put Momoko in here see her differently...">Write in

>>1585431>>1585903>>1586033"I think the girls who put Momoko in here see her differently." you say. Yolanda nods. "Ryoma-kaichou's right...the people who sent Momoko here likely believe that she's capable of holding this kind of power.""Man, talk about putting her on a pedestal..." says Hiroji. There's a pause before he speaks again. "Waitasec, Ryoma-'kaichou'? Last time I checked, we weren't a military unit or a corporation!"Yolanda huffs. "Since Ryoma-kaichou is the leader, he deserves a title befitting his position." she says condescendingly. Hiroji looks at you with exasperation. "Ryoma-kun, this is ridiculous.">"That's Ryoma-kaichou to you, soldier.">"I dunno, I kinda like it.">"Yolanda, don't be so formal.">Write in

>>1586732>>1586760>>1587652You give Hiroji the biggest shit-eating grin you can muster. "That's Ryoma-kaichou to you, soldier." you say, putting on a smarmy tone. Yolanda smirks smugly and Hiroji looks shocked when you continue:"Don't worry, you can be second in command." you say, which deflates Yolanda's ego and puts a grin on Hiroji's face. With that silliness out of the way, you all begin heading down the hallway when you see another Yakuza Shadow pacing along the corridor.>Roll 1d100 to sneak up

You run for about four minutes before you hear a loudspeaker crackle to life. "You never should've come here." says the voice of one of the yankii that Momoko told off. "This is Boss Ayabe's turf!" shouts another. Hiroji grimaces. "Those girls are totally delusional...they're clinging to the idea that Momoko still wants to run their little gang.">"We're gonna break that delusion.">"We just gotta beat their Shadows and free Momoko's soul.">Write in
>>1597635>>"We're gonna break that delusion."
>>1597638>>1597641"We're gonna break that delusion." you say confidently. Hiroji grins. "I knew you'd say something like that." he said. You continue down the hallway, which winds and twists and seems to be sloped downward. You're pretty sure you've gone deep beneath the city. When you reach the end of the hallway, you come to see a large, imposing pair of double doors. Yolanda tenses up. "I can feel it...there are powerful Shadows on the other side of those doors." she says."You ready, Ryoma-kun?" asks Hiroji.>"Let's do this.">"Maybe we should rest up and do this tomorrow..."
>>1597732>>"Let's do this."
>>1597732>"Lets do this."
>>1597735>>1597742>>1597801"Let's do this." you say, throwing open the door.You step inside to see Momoko wearing an iron collar, chained to a high-backed leather chair at the head of a long table. Sitting at the table are the yankii, all dressed like Yakuza and wearing sunglasses over their yellow eyes. The blonde one that punched you in the face a few days ago stands up. "What the hell are you doing here? This meeting is strictly for Boss Ayabe."Hiroji growls. "Why can't you bitches get it through your head that Momoko wants nothing to do with you?!"The brunette yankii- Akane- stands up. "You don't know what Momoko wants! We know what's best for her, because we've known her since we were just kids!"The final yankii - Miyo -stands up. "This goody-two shoes act is just a phase. Once she's learned that she's always gonna be our sukeban, she'll accept her role in life.""This is wrong!" shouts Yolanda. "You can't determine another person's morals!""Why not?" asks the blonde one- Fuyuko. "Teachers do it, parents do it, cops do it...everyone's pushing their views and moral crap. So why not push back? Make others think like you. At least we're pushing her away from the 'contributing member of society' bullshit!">"You're only holding her back.">"If you're really trying to rebel, telling others how to rebel is just as oppressive as the thing you're fighting.">Write in
>>1597896>"You're only holding her back."
>>1597896>>"You're only holding Boss back."
>>1597896>"If you're really trying to rebel, telling others how to rebel is just as oppressive as the thing you're fighting."Anarchy means no leadership, not "I'm the leader now."
>>1597923Did you mean 'holding her back' or did you specifically mean 'holding boss back'?
>>1597896>>"If you're really trying to rebel, telling others how to rebel is just as oppressive as the thing you're fighting."
>>1597896>"If you're really trying to rebel, telling others how to rebel is just as oppressive as the thing you're fighting."
>>1597936>>1597983>>1598114"If you're really trying to rebel, telling others how to rebel is just as oppressive as the thing you're fighting." you retort. Akane snarls. "Don't talk back to us! We know what Boss really wants! We know it because we've known her all our life! She won't abandon us!"Momoko stirs in her chair, seemingly out of it. You look up and notice a marionette dangling from strings behind her. Its hands are held to each side of her head, around her ears, and its jaw is flapping up and down, but if it's talking, you can't hear it. "You're just a bunch of desperate, sad people who can't get over the fact that Momoko-san's done with your bullshit!" shouts Hiroji. "She wants to move on, and that terrifies you, so you deny it and try to force her to stay, because that's how you think it's always gonna be, and you'll keep it that way no matter how hard you have to hold her back! You're all nothing but damn parasites!""WHO ARE YOU CALLING 'PARASITE'?"All three yankii speak as one, their voices suddenly shaking the room with their sheer volume. You feel their words in your teeth and your gut. They all turn in lockstep towards your party and their forms begin to bubble and swell. But unlike Takeda, who fused with the machinery, these Shadows are fusing with one another. Black ooze congeals and floats into a singular mass of liquid darkness, and reshapes as a nightmarish gestalt of three suited women, skin covered entirely in tattoos. Their body parts grow out of each other like tumors.Hiroji grits his teeth, brandishing his axe. (Gotta go, will continue later tonight)
>>1598316What is the theme of our party again? Like, P5 has thieves, P4 had detectives/investigators.
>>1598316The Shadow Yankiis stride toward you, their collective mass swaying awkwardly as overlapping limbs impede each other's movements.Momoko jerks her head forward, trying to get out of her chair. "I just wanna be on my own." she says. The towering mass of delinquent girls turns to glare at Momoko with it's many eyes. "What?""I'm not a good person...Never claimed to be." Momoko says bluntly. "But I want to be a good person while I still can...before I'm stuck being remembered as just a violent bitch." >Continued...
>>1599618(Momoko's POV) That's right, darling. Why let others tell you how to live your life? Have some heart, dear. Take a step into the wild blue yonder~!Your fingers clutch at the collar around your neck.C'mon, love, we haven't got all day...People to fight, hearts to break, and victories to be won! So what are you waiting for? Just let me loose and I'll give you the power to find your own way.You tug apart the collar and call out."LA MAUPIN!"Blue flames coalesce behind you into a woman wearing a cross between a fencer's outfit and a French aristocratic woman's dress with all the frills in bright red. She wields a rapier in one hand, part of her face is concealed by a red opera mask, and her eyes and smile have a bit of mischief to them.I am thou, and thou art I. I am La Maupin, a lover and fighter in equal measure. No prize can elude me, and no one shall best me!>Cleave>Garu>Tarukaja(If you don't know about La Maupin...Just look her up, she is a BADASS.)
