Because we’re 1/3 of the way through August and still nothing, so what else have I got to do but speculate? It’s plenty of things but nevermind that rn.
I started with a question: What’s up with this outfit?
So, presumably, this is Edgeworth’s V’s party outfit. But it’s so…jaunty? It’s a pretty loud getup, which is super weird, because in pretty much every image we have of V he’s dressed in pretty muted colors, like:
Bb is never presented as an especially flashy dresser, is what I’m saying, either in the current timeline nor in the flashbacks to the past before/during his breakup with Rika.
Ok, so what? Maybe it’s a sign that at the end of his route he’ll be in a better place than he’s ever been and the vibrancy of his clothes reflect that. Maybe V’s route is going to be like Seven’s in reverse: instead of the wacky, zany memelord being revealed as a sad, depressed cinnamon roll, V is the sad cactus that is revealed as a witty, cheeky prosecutor desert flower.
Except for Seven because he’s the OTP no one’s party outfit is all that different from their regular outfits. Jaehee only gets a ruffled collar and a fancy necklace upgrade. Jumin wears a tux, which is pretty par for the course for him. Yoosung buttons his shirt and adds some suspenders and a bow tie. Zen also gets a ruffled collar as well as a cooler jacket.
