Jailbait Blues [My Hero Vigilantes 67]

Seriously, Pop, just how old are you? Are you trying to get Koichi arrested?

Psst, Makoto. Your glasses are upside down.

We’re back in business focusing on the life of the main characters. Pop gets the spotlight as she’s trying to keep the Narufest performers on track. But, it’s too late, over the two years since Makoto left with Captain Celebrity to America, things have slowly gone downhill to the point their monthly performances will be canceled after one more show. But, hey, everyone else in the group has other stuff going on so it’s not too bad.

The problem is Pop Step doesn’t really have anything else happening and she won’t be hanging out with Koichi much because he’s getting a full-time job soon. Will she tell Koichi how she feels? Of course not! We need drama drama drama! Enter Mokoto.

Yep, Mokoto’s back in Japan and cooking for Koichi and Pop Step but we don’t know exactly why she’s back. Hm? The chapter ends with Pop Step eyeing Mokoto and Koichi touching each other but that could easily be a misdirection.

Wow! Those girls hit a huge growth spurt during the time-skip. Or, they’re taking steroids.

So, what’s going on? Well, while I think Mokoto does have romantic feelings for Koichi on some level, I don’t think she’s back just for that. At the beginning of the chapter, we see a clip of her talking on a TV show about her book Vigilantism Versus Commercialism. She also talks about how she proposed a “social model” which was never elaborated on. Maybe that has to do with why she’s with Koichi. Could it be she wants to prove vigilantes are just as capable, if not better, than most heroes? Maybe, she’s gonna offer Koichi a chance at becoming a legitimate hero with her as his manager! Look, if she can put Captain Celebrity back on top, she can easily make Koichi a pro-hero superstar.

Now, whether Koichi accepts it if that happens is a different matter (He won’t accept it.), but perhaps all this love triangle stuff will end with Mokoto not being Koichi’s manager, but managing Pop Step. Yeah, at some point Pop Step will strike out on her own as a legit Idol and will either have Mokoto or Marukane (the Narufest manager) working with her. It’d be nice to see Pop sticking with her dream of being a star. Well, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Not even Mary Poppins could get Koichi to like medicine.

A nice chapter. We’re back to the low key chapters, but that’s My Hero Vigilantes for you. I’m fine with it, especially because we know the end is coming and all the action will start up again the closer we get to the finish line. I just hope Knuckleduster is alive. It’s been two years. Maybe he’s a yoga instructor now. Instead of punching criminals, he’s flexing calories away. Truly, a great man of the people.

I don’t think Mokoto has any feelings for Koichi beyond just a “good friend.” I can imagine that scene and she says “Oh, come on! He’s totally unreliable.” Because it’s Koichi. Conversely; I can see that. It might be short lived, or maybe Koichi doesn’t like HER like that. As for her become Pop’s manager; yes. Absolutely. A present day scene of the main series could show them. And maybe we see Koichi in the present.

I think Mokoto has a bit of a crush on Koichi or at least wants to see him become a star. But, that’s not what Koichi wants in life. He just wants to do good because its right.
