ALSO we finally got to see Shibazaki’s waifu. She called him a weirdo. A++ THIS IS NOW MY FAVORITE ANIME MARRIAGE.
AND NOW WE KNOW MOLE-CHAN’S NAME IS ACTUALLY HARUKA.
I bet she likes swimming.
This is all very important okay. Everything is coming together. All the missing pieces of information- all the people mentioned but not shown, we’re getting to them all one by one.
And when Shibazaki said ‘I was just thinking that kids become adults in the blink of an eye’ I got the sads because obviously this isn’t just about his own daughter, but I bet hearing about what happened to the kids of the athena plan has him appreciating that his child is still alive and well, and regretting not spending more time with her when she was still younger and living at home.
But he can’t talk about the case with his wife- I mean people got killed over that information so discussing it is a big no no, but I bet he wouldn’t have mentioned it either way. He keeps everything to himself, and his wife seems like the happily oblivious type so it’s all good.
AT LEAST HE CAN VENT TO HAMURA IF HE WANTED TO- which reminds me, when he send Hamura off to buy that impossible to find brand of cigarettes to make sure he’d stay away from hearing any more dangerous information my heart just- hnng. LONE WOLF SHIBAZAKI PROTECTING HIS UNDERLING CUB. Someone hold me.
NOTHING CAN HAPPEN TO HIM. After what they did to Five I feel like no one I love is safe anymore… not to mention Shibazaki seems pretty ok with going down while fighting for a case, so that has me double as worried.
DON’T DIE. THERE IS A HAPPY FUTURE OUT THERE FOR YOU. FILLED WITH LOTSA WEAK BARLEY TEA. DON’T DIE.
