Imagine with me, please, after Akira leaves for home, everybody hanging out and doing things together?
Everybody going to events for Yusuke’s art. Ryuji complains the whole time and Ann smacks him for it, and it takes Futaba a lot of courage to come out to a crowded place but she manages to come sometimes, to support Inari. The times she can’t, she bugs somebody’s phone so she can still see/hear what’s going on. Makoto and Haru can’t always come because they got college and stuff, but they do their best to show up when they can. After the event they grab some ramen together, and someone pays for Yusuke’s meal.
Sometimes they all hang out at LeBlanc, just to chill out and do whatever work or studying they gotta do. Sojiro closes the store early a few times, and and somehow there’s always enough “leftover” curry for them. He makes sure to give Yusuke some extra curry and tells him he is welcome to have dinner with him and Futaba any day, because the boy eats breadcrumbs on like a daily basis.
Everybody decides to go to another one of Sae’s court cases one time. The gang has to physically restrain Ryuji from yelling at her opposition when the guy is just generally rude, and Makoto shoots an apologetic look at her sister. When Sae wins her case, Makoto gives her a hug and they get some coffee at LeBlanc.
Ann hangs out with Shiho and sometimes brings her along when she hangs out with the thieves, and Shiho notices how happy Ann looks with her friends and when Ann isn’t around (getting Shiho a crepe or something), thanks everybody for being Ann’s friend and to continue taking care of her. Everybody is overwhelmed by her kindness and it’s all fuzzy until Ann comes back and asks what’s up, and Makoto changes the topic like a pro. Later, Ryuji tells Ann that Shiho is too good for her and gets a “yeah” and a punch to the arm.
Sometimes they all watch movies/tv shows together in the attic, and everybody always dreads when it’s Haru’s turn to pick the movie, because she either picks the cutest movies (which are fine) or the most disgustingly gory ones. There is no in between. Futaba makes everybody watch some sentai show and she strikes a billion poses with Yusuke. Somehow, she manages to rope everybody else into posing, and Sojiro takes a picture of them. Eventually, it just turns into watching bad horror movies. Everybody pretends not to notice how Makoto manages to get scared at nearly all of them, and she holds Haru’s arm in a death grip. Haru just thinks it’s cute. At some point everybody ends up passed out on the couch, and Futaba is the last one awake and draws on Yusuke’s face. Ann wakes up and catches her in the act, and asks her for the marker when Futaba is done so she can draw on Ryuji’s face.
The group takes turns helping Haru tend to her garden. Sometimes they all help her out at once, sometimes in pairs, whenever they can they help. Someone suggests making flower crowns, and the next time everybody comes to help her she puts one on everybody’s head.
Ryuji goes fishing with Yusuke, and he sends Akira pictures of their catches. Yusuke poses with the fish before wondering if he can eat it. Ryuji then decides it’s time to feed the starving artist and calls everybody up to get some cheap sushi.
Akira’s first planned visit back to the city is nearly ruined, because his parents just don’t want him to go off and think he’s gonna screw around and make some more trouble. He tells the group this, and suddenly Sojiro is on the phone with his parents saying he will personally drive down to pick him up, saying that it’s no trouble at all and that he’d love to have the extra help at LeBlanc.
These all kinda look like they’re centered around Ryuji now that I look at it, but it wasn’t intentional I swear lol
I love the phantom thieves so much, they’re all so good. Where are my pointless slice of life spinoff games, atlus
