    Summary

    "Faust tries not to stare, but it’s a little difficult. Not that Bradley is that attractive (he’s not unattractive, but — that’s beside the point); Bradley’s body is... heavily scarred."

    Faust and Bradley talk about the scars they've chosen to bear.

    Summary

    A selfie. A picture of Date-san smiling awkwardly at the camera. A candid of Daigo in a suit, sound asleep at his desk. A long rambling five-text adventure involving three Purgatory prostitutes, a bar brawl, and Majima terrorizing the local precinct. Daily updates on the colony of feral cats that somehow had started growing in the back of Tojo HQ. Pictures of Kamurocho Hills growing. One of those weird pictures about medieval siege engines he and Yuki seemed to find hilarious. Majima’s ongoing project to get Nishida laid that was, frankly, doomed for disaster from the very start and got progressively worse until the poor man begged him to let him handle his love life. Majima was very affronted.

    Sometimes Kiryu answered, sometimes all he could manage was a sticker or an emoticon, and sometimes he didn’t answer at all and fell asleep with his phone still in hand, but Majima didn’t seem to mind.

    Summary

    Kiryu is trying his best to pick up the pieces after the incident at Millennium Tower, although perhaps "struggling" is the better word. So when he finds himself sent on an errand down into the racier areas of Purgatory, all he can hope is that if this isn't long, at least it'll be relatively painless.

    But as with everything else in the prolonged disaster that has become his life, nothing goes quite as planned.

    (set almost directly after Yakuza: Kiwami and fairly spoiler heavy, so conduct yourselves accordingly.)

    Summary

    She doesn’t meet his eyes, and the challenging energy slowly melts from her shoulders. “What if I told ya this Goromi thing is full time?”
    Kiryu squints. “You mean you’re leaving the clan to become a hostess?”
    Goromi looks up at him at that, an unreadable emotion on her face. “No, dumbass. What the hell? How’d ya even get to that conclusion?”
    “Then what do you mean?” Kiryu asks.
    “I mean like what if I was Goromi. All the time.”
