Starting off the month with five books I…have conflicted feelings for. And you guys said you liked my unfiltered thoughts (which I still can’t figure out where you would have heard that from? I try to be organized in my videos), so I’m also doing a mini Q&A in celebration of nearing the end of the year. DM me on Twitter if you want me to answer a question.



Category People & Blogs




A man sits in front of the camera, holding a steaming hot mug in front of his face. His hair is swept to the sides, almost blending in with the sports jacket he’s wearing, the logo out of the frame.

The room he’s in is homey: a plant covers the bottom corner of the screen and the back wall is lined with shelves full of books. A single brown jacket rests on the wall-mounted coat rack just barely in the frame. Two small cactus plants sit on a low table next to the wall, two pairs of shoes tucked underneath. The lighting is low, save for a string of LED lights hanging from the wall closer to the camera.

The steam from the mug starts to fog up his glasses. He grimaces as he looks back to his computer.

“Next question from missnightingale,” he murmurs, scrolling through Twitter. “‘Why did you start your channel? By the way, I love your videos!’ Oh. Thank you.”

The livestream manages to catch a radiant smile as he looks up.

“To answer your question, I’ve always loved to read. I work as a manga editor, but I originally wanted to be in the literature department…that is irrelevant. One of my good friends started a Youtube channel a few years ago, and I decided there was no harm in trying.”

Adjusting his glasses, he takes a sip of his drink.

“I apologize, I don’t have a more interesting story to tell you. There was no moment of clarity that made me want to start a channel. I just posted a video about my favorite book one day and decided to keep going. That should probably be remade, now that I think about it.”

When he winces, his nose crinkles in apparent disgust. The chat explodes as he turns back to the monitor.

“Next question from…wait, I think I know who this is. Kuroo-san, get off the livestream.”

Sighing, he checks the chat.

“I’m not sure how many more questions I’ll have time for. I’ll try to wrap this up—”

Behind him, the door swings open, slamming against the low table.

The man’s eyes widen, his head flicking to the door as a figure steps into the frame. A broad-shouldered man stands at the doorway, eyes shining and mouth curled upwards in excitement. His hair is styled upwards, and his steps are long and confident as he makes his way to the camera.

“Akaashi!” The source is still near the front door, but the audio is clear. “You’ll never guess what happened at practice today! I made a bet with—”

“I’m so sorry,” Akaashi says, turning to the stream. “He’s early today.”

The chat picks up upon recognizing the identity of the new arrival.

“Woah, what video are you—”

“I’m doing a livestream, Bokuto-san. The one I told you about earlier.”

“Right, right, the livestream.”

Lowering himself into a crouch, Bokuto smiles at Akaashi, golden eyes fluttering closed in a manner of helpless innocence. The gesture is easy-going and affectionate, the fondness obvious even through the fuzzy quality. Akaashi’s hard glare softens.

“I told you not to come back until seven o’clock. When the livestream would have been over.”

“I forgot! But—” Bokuto glances at the camera “—aren’t I making it better, chat?”

“Don’t encourage them. And this is off-topic. I was supposed to finish answering questions before you got back.”

“Why can’t I answer them with you?”

“Well...I suppose that would be alright. I’m limiting you to three questions.”

this will probably get buried in the comments but @akaashikeiji for book 5 on your list, you should read the second book in the series!! a lot of your critique gets called out (like the protagonist really starts standing up for herself!) and imo it was better than book 1

Akaashi @akaashikeiji • 15m

Noted. If I have time, I’ll pick up book 2. Thank you!

monsters, all of ‘em

[A video is attached: the camera starts off shaky but stabilizes on a man with bright orange hair, illuminated by the lamppost next to him. Judging by the lighting, it is late evening. Even through the darkness, a bright grin is visible on his face as he waves, both arms flying frantically in the air.

“Atsumu-san!” the man yells, bouncing in place. “Are you recording!”

It sounds less like a question and more of a competition of which syllable can leave his mouth loud enough.

A low chuckle from behind the camera can be heard.

“Yes, Shouyou-kun, I’m recording,” the voice says. Shouyou walks off the frame, clearly preparing for something.

“Can I please go home now?” another person asks flatly, clearly irritated.

“Yer way too impatient, Omi-kun,” the first voice chides. “Just watch the spectacle, won'tcha?”

“It’s nothing I haven’t seen in practice,” Omi-kun says.

Yet no footsteps are heard.

“I’m ready!” Shouyou screeches off-screen.

The next moment, a blur of orange and black materializes next to the lamppost. Shouyou’s legs are arched behind him, torso pushed out and one arm drawn back behind him like he’s about to spike a ball. He’s cleared over half of the lamppost. As he reaches the apex point of his jump, his body relaxes and he drops his arm as he lands, but the victorious smile and the curious fire in his eyes don’t die away.

The voice behind the camera sounds smug. “Ah, he’s a monster.”

“I don’t see what the point of this was,” Omi-kun adds.

“Omi-Omi, we gotta make the world more scared o’ him! I’ll record yer disgusting spikes soon enough, if ya want.”

“Don’t, Miya.”]

Hirakata City, Osaka

[A video is attached: a young man with curly dark hair and two distinct moles on the right side of his face is sitting on the floor of the gym. He seems to be stretching, one leg laid out in front of him. The person recording approaches, either oblivious or uncaring to the way the man’s scowl deepens.

“Omi-kun!” The person recording sounds cheerful.

Omi-kun looks like he wants to murder him. “Miya, put the camera away or—”

“Sakusa-san, I wanna see it too,” another person mutters reverently, entering the frame. It is the ‘Shouyou-kun’ from the last video. He wipes his face, chest heaving from, presumably, exertion during practice. “I try to do it, but then my wrist gets all—”

Shouyou cuts himself off as he bends his wrist back, gnashing his teeth with the effort. Both Sakusa and Miya have fallen silent as he stands there, straining his hand for a whole five seconds.

“Okay, that’s enough, Shouyou-kun,” Miya says. The camera turns back to Sakusa. “I couldn’t record yer spikes, so I gotta get somethin’.”

“Please just stretch,” Sakusa replies.

He acquiesces, anyway.

Sakusa’s entire hand touches his forearm. Shouyou, still in the frame, openly gapes. His own hand is still pushed back; he appears to have forgotten.

“Atsumu-san,” Shouyou says, staring at a fixed point behind the camera, “can you do it too?”

“Uh,” Atsumu mutters, “I dunno about that one, I’m just holding the camera, haha—Omi-kun?”

Sakusa has pushed himself off the gym floor and is walking towards the camera at a brisk pace. The camera shuffles backward as Sakusa gets closer before a shout rings through the air and the video turns into a blur.

When the camera refocuses, a man with blond hair swept to the side takes up the center of the frame. He looks oddly flustered.

“Well, Miya?” Sakusa says, his voice much closer to the camera. “Your turn.”

“This ain’t a show,” Atsumu mutters, looking away from the camera.

A faint huff can be heard. “That’s different from what you had been saying earlier. What changed?”

“Oh!” Shouyou shouts, his voice somewhere behind the camera. “Atsumu-san, is it because I caught you trying that stretch yesterday—”

Shouyou-kun,” Atsumu says urgently. Shouyou stops talking.

He drags his gaze to a point above the camera (presumably Sakusa), his eyes narrowed in calculated thoughtfulness before he spins on his heels and dramatically points to the left of the screen. Sighing, Sakusa lets it drop and indulges him, turning the camera.

Bokuto is leaning against the wall, a bright look visible on his face despite the distance. Next to him, Akaashi is drowning in a dark brown jacket and his head is tilted in Bokuto’s direction. They’re seemingly deep in conversation, and Bokuto’s arms are swinging in what can only be described as an attempt to mimic a receive.

“Bokkun, Aka-kun,” Atsumu calls, striding over. The camera wordlessly follows. “Since ya missed the last hangout, ya gotta do somethin’ ta make up for it. And sheesh, Aka-kun, how’re ya breathin’ in that?”

“Hello, Sakusa-san,” Akaashi says politely.

Bokuto’s head shoots up. “Oh, what d’you want me to do, Tsum-Tsum!”

Atsumu grins. “Do Omi-kun’s freaky wrist thing.”

“‘Freaky wrist thing’,” Sakusa repeats.

“Is that all?” Akaashi asks. His voice is dry, but the wry smile building on his lips gives him away entirely. “Knowing you, I figured you would have asked for something more…irritating.”

Atsumu crosses his arms. “D’ya have no faith in me, Aka-kun?”

“I suppose you could say that,” Akaashi says. There is no inflection in his voice.

Atsumu hisses “shaddup” under his breath, and the camera abruptly edges him out of the frame, leaving Bokuto and Akaashi in the center. They oblige as well, bending their wrists back. Neither go as far as Sakusa’s wrist. No one is particularly surprised or offended.

Except Bokuto. “Argh, I really thought I had it this time!”

“I’m sure you’ll get it next time, Bokuto-san.”

“Hey—wait, am I still in the frame?”]

Who is Akaashi Keiji and how is he related to the Black Jackals; a thread

2:49PM • Nov 7


Sana @secretsanaise • 1h

— Akaashi is a youtuber! A booktuber to be specific. His youtube account: (also I don’t even have the time to read books anymore but he’s genuinely So Funny please subscribe) [1/15]

Sana @secretsanaise • 1h

— Bokuto crashed his livestream on October 21. Judging by their reactions, they’ve known each other for a while [2/15]

[A ten second clip is attached: Akaashi is in the frame. The door behind him swings open, revealing a disheveled Bokuto. He doesn’t bother closing the door as he walks towards the camera. Akaashi turns around, exasperation clear on his face.]

Sana @secretsanaise • 1h

— Whoops, video link to the above! [3/15]

Sana @secretsanaise • 1h

— Atsumu accidentally mentioned Akaashi when asking Bokuto why he didn’t show up to a Black Jackals hangout. Here’s Atsumu’s tweet:… [4/15]

Sana @secretsanaise • 1h

— He mentions a previously-unknown “aka-kun”. Now listen to around 0:49 of the instagram video he posted two days ago:… [5/15]

Sana @secretsanaise • 1h

— Akaashi Keiji is in the frame when Atsumu says “aka-kun”. Therefore Akaashi is the “aka-kun” in question. That brings up two implications: [6/15]

Sana @secretsanaise • 1h

— 1. Akaashi and Bokuto have been friends for a while. THE LIVESTREAM first of all, I would freak out about someone storming into my house unless they’re a close friend and/or have been doing it for a while. So they see each other enough for this not to be an issue. [7/15]

Sana @secretsanaise • 1h

— 2. Akaashi regularly goes with Bokuto to hang out with the Black Jackals. Atsumu’s “is this why aka-kun couldn’t make it either?” implies that Akaashi is a regular visitor to these hang outs. It also implies that Akaashi goes with Bokuto. [8/15]

Sana @secretsanaise • 1h

— This is backed up by the fact that no one is surprised that Akaashi is essentially crashing their practice, and Sakusa isn’t surprised at all by Atsumu mentioning Akaashi:… [9/15]

Sana @secretsanaise • 1h

— So we can conclude that Akaashi is Bokuto’s friend, knows the rest of the Black Jackals, and hangs out with them regularly. Now I address the other question: why are we just now learning about this connection? [10/15]

Sana @secretsanaise • 1h

— It is common knowledge that Bokuto is a Very Open and Enthusiastic Person (we don’t need sources for this) but Akaashi seems to be more reserved about his life. He revealed some things in the first Q&A livestream he held: [11/15]

Sana @secretsanaise • 1h

— To sum it up, he talked about his current job (manga editor). It’s also known that he’s friends with Kuroo Tetsurou, who Bokuto is also friends with. [12/15]

Sana @secretsanaise • 1h

— Given all this, we can presume that Akaashi asked Bokuto and the rest of the Black Jackals to keep his connection with them a secret for the sake of preserving anonymity. [13/15]

Sana @secretsanaise • 1h

— As for any specifics or other reasons? Honestly, it’s not our business. Akaashi has specifically stated he wouldn’t like to go into specifics… [14/15]

Sana @secretsanaise • 1h

— And I’d like to respect his wishes. That’s all we know so far. [15/15]

It is. I figured an occasion as important as the upcoming game was enough to break my self-imposed silence. Besides, the internet already knows we are acquainted, so this isn’t groundbreaking.

One-karubi Hirakata

[An image is attached: a few members of the MSBY Black Jackals team are sitting in a restaurant booth. The background is made up of mahogany walls and closed shutters; the image is dimly lit, a lone light fixture visible. The camera is at an awkward angle, tilted slightly to the left.

Atsumu is at the far left of the photo, the wide smile on his face apparent despite barely being in frame. His eyes are curved and his arm is extended, presumably holding the camera. His elbow is right in Sakusa’s face.

Sakusa himself, crowded in the bottom left corner of the photo, is glaring fiercely at Atsumu.

To Atsumu’s other side, Hinata grins at the camera, two fingers raised in a peace sign. Next to him, Bokuto’s beaming. The piece of meat in chopsticks he’s holding looks dangerously close to falling out as he leans over the table.

Wedged in the corner next to Bokuto is Akaashi, who can only be identified by the square-shaped glasses on his face. His hand is wrapped around Bokuto’s left wrist, likely trying to save his food.

On the other side, Inunaki’s arms are thrown around Oliver and Adriah, and his eyes look glazed. At the corner of the bench, Oliver’s left arm is around Inunaki’s shoulders and his right hand firmly rests on what looks like a jug of beer.

Adriah isn’t facing the camera, his mouth open in Inunaki’s direction—though the side of his mouth visible to the camera is curled upwards. His left hand is reaching for a nearby cup filled with clear liquid.

Next to him, shoved to the bottom right corner, is Meian, whose hands are folded in front of him. His expression is placid as he faces the camera, though the smile on his face is clear.

post-game victory pic with my most favorite person!! (@thebettermiya i did your dare!!!)

[An image is attached: Bokuto and Akaashi are in the center of the frame, grinning right at the camera. They are in the Kamei Arena gym, bright lights and shiny floors in the background. Bokuto, who is still wearing his jersey and has visible lines of sweat on his forehead, has just come out of a match. Akaashi is wearing the same large, brown jacket from Atsumu’s prior video and a white shirt tucked into black pants underneath. Their arms are slung around each other and their faces are side by side, almost pressed together. The image quality is slightly blurry, but the elation in their smiles speaks for itself.

You think with what happened the last time I went to a mall with Bokuto, I would have learned my lesson. I am proud to say that I absolutely have not, and I’m taking Bokuto to another mall because he’s my best bro, and best bros don’t miss out on going to Tokyo Midtown for the first time.

The new person joining us today is Akaashi! He’s cool, even if he sides with Kenma over us when it comes to raiding the sports store. They’ll agree with us someday.

Also, Kenma keeps telling me to change the title. I will not :)

Category People & Blogs




A man in an oversized sweatshirt is leaning against a railing, eyes glued to his phone as his thumbs, nearly covered by the sleeves, dash across the screen. His knees are tucked in, both feet resting on a bench. His hair is tucked into a bun, blond-tipped strands fluttering in the breeze. Behind him, a beige tiled floor and a metal canopy covering the top of the frame are discernable.

Close to the camera, someone clears their throat. The man doesn’t move. The person clears their throat again.

“Kenma!” the person yells.

Kenma puts his phone away. “Oh. You were recording, Kuro?”

“Have been for the past few minutes, kitten.”

“Eh, sorry.” Kenma doesn’t look very sorry. “You can edit it out.”

“Nah. The audience can spend a couple more minutes looking at your beautiful face.”

“You’re so embarrassing,” Kenma mutters, looking away.

The camera does a 180 degree turn, settling on a man with disheveled hair grinning at the camera. He’s wearing a light blue leather jacket and a white graphic t-shirt. From the angle, his lower body can be seen: one leg is propped up on the bench and the other is dangling off the edge, toes reaching the floor. A belt and dark ripped jeans are barely in the shot.

“Hello, everyone,” Kuro says. “Welcome back to part nine of my Japan Vlogs series! I can’t believe we’ve already come this far. Almost brings a tear to my eye.”

“The last time you updated this series was half a year ago,” Kenma cuts in from off-screen.

Kuro waves a hand. “Schematics. Anyways, I’m Kuroo Tetsurou, the love of my life over here is—hey, cut it out, it’s true—Kozume Kenma, otherwise known as Kodzuken or Applepi—let go of my arm, I’m right—and today, we’re joined by two special guests.”

Kuroo glances around. After five uncomfortable seconds go by, he frowns.

“Okay,” he turns to the camera, “maybe they’re lost.”

Kenma shrugs. “This is Koutarou we’re talking about, they probably got side-tracked.”

“You think we should have sent them directions?”

“It wouldn’t have made much of a difference, Kuro.”

“If you insist, sweetheart.”

A shout cuts through whatever Kenma was going to say next.

“Oh! I haven’t been here yet, we gotta go here!”

“Well, there’s Bo,” Kuroo mutters as the camera pans to his left.

Two people are in the distance. One is crouching next to a sign, making erratic movements as their head constantly flicks to their companion, who stands nearby, nodding every so often in response. All that can be seen of them is the spiked up hair of the crouching figure and a lump likely indicating a jacket on the other.

“Bo, Akaashi! Get over here!” Kuroo calls, and the one who had been crouching straightens almost immediately.

“Kuroo!” the figure calls, taking off at a fast pace. The person next to them shakes their head again and matches them stride for stride.

As they approach, the camera focuses on them. The one who had been crouching is wearing sports shorts and a tank top underneath a loose jacket, and his companion is wearing a brown jacket and jeans, a dark turtleneck just peeking out.

The one with the spiked up hairdo talks first. “Hey, hey, hey! We got kinda lost on the way here, so ‘Kaashi and I took a bit of a detour and, bro, there’s so many cool places here, we gotta go everywhere—”

“Bo, that’s nice, but let me introduce you guys,” Kuroo says.

Bo blinks. “This better be, like, the coolest intro ever.”

Kuroo snorts. “More than you deserve, bird brain.”

“Kuro, Keiji’s here too,” Kenma intercepts, glancing up.

“I don’t mind,” Keiji says, one hand tugging on his sleeve. “It is your youtube video, after all.”

“Nah, I’ll get a move on.” Kuroo waves his free hand. “We shouldn’t stay here longer than we have to.”

Kuroo turns back to the camera, tilting the camera to get the two in the shot.

“Hello, everyone!” The corners of his eyes crinkle as he smiles. “As you can tell from the title of the video, I’m in Tokyo Midtown! And before I get questions about it, yes, I live in Tokyo, and yes, this is my first time being here. I’m a busy man, okay?”

“Right,” Kenma mutters, rolling his eyes.

“Hey, now, don’t be like that,” Kuroo says, looking over his shoulder. After a few seconds, a quiet smile breaks over Kenma’s face, and he reaches over to shove Kuroo’s back.

“Finish your intro.”

“Alright, alright.” With that, Kuroo turns back to the camera. “Anyway! I decided to come here with a couple of friends today. All of our schedules are cleared up, so maybe it was meant to be.”

“You’re still as melodramatic as ever, Kuroo-san,” Keiji interrupts, arms crossed.

“Akaashi, my melodrama is welcome on this channel,” Kuroo says.

“No, it isn’t,” Kenma chimes in.

Kuroo sighs, the action clearly overdramatised. “I’m not even safe on my own channel.”

“Finish your intro and maybe you’ll be forgiven,” Kenma says, raising an eyebrow.

“Got it, sweetheart,” Kuroo coos before turning to the camera once more. “Back to what I was—Bo, stop laughing, it wasn’t that funny—saying before I got rudely interrupted—Akaashi, don’t look at me like that—the two special guests are Bokuto Koutarou and Akaashi Keiji!”

Bokuto and Akaashi wave at the screen as their respective names get mentioned. Bokuto gives the camera a wide grin, evidently comfortable. Akaashi glances at him, a small smile on his lips before he turns to the camera and does the same.

“If any of you keep up with pro-volleyball, Bo’s name gets mentioned a lot. He’s in the Black Jackals. You know, the team that recently won against the undefeated Schweiden Addlers? They’re sort of good, I guess.”

Bokuto laughs, raising a thumb to his chest.

“Hell yeah I am! I was in the starting lineup and everything! I did, like, a couple of really cool cut shots and stuff, but it’s no big deal, they’re kind of my speciality—”

“Bokuto-san, you’re bragging.” Akaashi lays a hand on his shoulder. “I will admit that he was quite impressive at the game, however.”

“High praise.”

“Only the truth, Kuroo-san,” Akaashi counters.

“Anyways, introduce Akaashi already!” Bokuto interrupts. “He’s, like, the best youtuber ever. No offense, Kuroo.”

Kuroo gasps. “Slander on my own channel, huh?”

“You should expect this by now,” Kenma says, a dry edge in his voice.

“You know what? I won’t dignify that with a response,” Kuroo rebuts eventually.


“Anyways, Akaashi’s a booktuber! I don’t know most of the books he talks about, but he’s pretty entertaining, so go check him out! You can find both of them in the description. Now, with that out of the way, Bo—Bo? Where’d he go?”

Akaashi blinks. “What do you mean, Bokuto-san’s right—”

He cuts himself off. Kenma looks up from his phone. Only three figures are in the frame.

Akaashi is the first to move. The calmness in his movements implies he’s done this before. “I’ll check the sports store. Kuroo-san, Kozume-san, meet me in the food court.”

“Uh, okay,” Kuroo mutters as he and Kenma move to get up.

“So we found Bo,” Kuroo says from behind the camera. “He’s fine, as you guys can see.”

Ahead, Bokuto and Akaashi—who are quite a bit taller than average—can be seen despite the crowd, their heads peeking out over other shoppers. Not much can be made out besides the drink in Akaashi’s hand, what appears to be taiyaki in Bokuto’s, and the arm around Akaashi’s shoulder that goes unaddressed.

“I worry more for the people around them that I do for those two,” Kenma adds.

Bokuto’s boisterous laugh can be heard clearly.

Kenma sighs.

Standing next to a railing, Akaashi holds something high above his head. It seems to be the taiyaki from earlier. Bokuto appears to be crowding him trying to reach for it, standing closer than strictly necessary as he reaches for his food. Only his back is visible, covering Akaashi’s face and most of his own movements. There is little distance between them.

People passing by glance at them every so often. Neither of them notice.

“After we found him, we stopped for snacks. They’re being as ridiculous as ever, though.”

“It’s not unexpected,” Kenma says. “This is Keiji and Koutarou we’re talking about.”

“Right as always, sweetheart.”

“You’ll never let go of that pet name, will you?”

“Would you prefer something else? Honey? Baby? My one and—”

“This conversation is over.”

“‘Kaashi, what do you think of this?”

Bokuto holds up a shirt in front of a mirror, staring at his reflection with an unusual amount of concentration. The angle is from behind, a concerning number of shirts piled up next to his jacket. Akaashi sits next to the mountain of clothes, his expression never wavering from bored-yet-enduring, though his eyes never once stray from Bokuto’s form.

“Too many stripes, Bo,” Kuroo calls out.

“Kuroo, my man, my main bro, there is no such thing as ‘too many stripes’,” Bokuto says, throwing the shirt to the side regardless. Akaashi catches it mindlessly.

“There is such a thing as ‘too many stripes’, Bokuto-san,” Akaashi cuts in, “though I don’t think the shirt you just tossed aside fits the criteria.”

“Why am I not surprised,” Kuroo mutters dryly as Bokuto lights up.

The next shirt is dark green. It is evident that Akaashi holds mixed opinions, wringing his hands as he gets up and stands next to Bokuto.

“It won’t work with these shorts,” he begins. Bokuto never lets him finish, moving the shirt to cover him instead.

“Y’know, I think if you paired these with formal pants, you’d look great. What’s the word? Dashing?”

Kuroo coughs, fighting back a laugh. “Handsome?”

“That, too.” Bokuto’s eyes are shining with triumphant glee. At the gesture, Akaashi immediately relaxes his stance and holds the shirt up himself.

“I appreciate the compliment, but I didn’t bring enough money for clothes.”

Bokuto’s grin flashes in the mirror. “It’s a good thing I brought my card, huh?”

“Bokuto-san, no—”

“You’re, like, the best person ever,” Bokuto says seriously, letting go of the shirt altogether. “I gotta do something to give back! It’s a law of the universe or something.”

“A law of—” Akaashi raises his hand to his mouth as quiet laughter fills the room. Bokuto’s lips are parted slightly as he stares at him, a warm tinge to his cheeks as a shy smile stretches across his mouth. His eyes have gone soft with obvious affection.

“And that’s my cue to leave,” Kuroo mutters as the camera spins away.

The movement doesn’t stop until he passes by the sweatshirt section. When he does, the camera stays frozen for a good ten seconds before a hand reaches out towards the nearest sweatshirt. Fingers pinch the closest sleeve, and Kuroo lets out a quiet gasp.

“These are so soft,” he says reverently. “Kenma would love these.”

People fill the shot, crossing through the entrance of the store. Akaashi and Kenma are in the corner, glancing at their phones. Notably, Kenma is wearing a different sweatshirt, a fluffy light brown texture visible from what little of the screen he makes up.

“I’d say that Tokyo Midtown—”

Akaashi glances up. “Before you start your outro, where is Bokuto-san?”

“Again?” Kenma asks blandly. “On the same day.”

“Should I check the sports store again?” Kuroo’s voice is tinged with weariness.

“I’ll call.” A gentle smile is on Akaashi’s lips. “Is it really a trip to the mall if Bokuto-san doesn’t get lost?”

“You have a point,” Kuroo concedes, “but I need to edit all this, you know.”

Akaashi’s voice is firm when he says, “You were the one who invited him,” as he walks off to the side.

Kuroo lets out a huff. “Smartass.”

“Like you can talk,” Kenma interjects.


“You can’t argue with me on that.”

“...Well, yes, but I can still be offended.”

The corners of Kenma’s mouth curve upwards, sly and subtle. The camera shakes a little. “It’s your channel, you can say however you want.”

“Why do I get the feeling that you’re mocking me?”

Kenma hums. “I wonder.”

Kuroo laughs, shrill chirps piercing the air. Kenma’s smile grows wider.

“We’ve found Bo,” Kuroo informs the camera as Bokuto walks on-screen, a pretzel in hand. “Again.”

“C’mon, guys, I didn’t wander that far. ‘Kaashi called me and everything!”

“I called you because we lost sight of you,” Akaashi says, looking exasperated as he steps into the frame himself. “That doesn’t take away from the point.”

Bokuto, in the middle of bringing the pretzel to his mouth, freezes. “Oh?” He nudges the pretzel towards Akaashi. “You want some?”

Akaashi stares at him for a moment.

“What type of pretzel.”

It’s not a question.

“Cheddar, but I asked for extra sour cream.”

Without another word, Akaashi leans forward and takes a bite, one hand on Bokuto’s arm presumably to anchor himself.

“Wow,” Kuroo says dryly. “Shameless today, aren’t they?”

Kenma snorts. “Don’t act like they don’t do this every time we hang out, Kuro.”

[An image is attached: Akaashi’s looking over his shoulder, his expression completely at ease. Behind him, the walls of an alleyway can be seen, a nearby streetlight exposing wet brick. One hand is holding what seems to be milk tea, the straw inches away from his lips. A plastic bag dangles from his other hand, the contents unknown. Though Akaashi’s face is barely illuminated, a faint redness is visible on his cheeks and his eyes seem to shine in the dark. His clothes are difficult to make out, though the outlines of his usual coat nearly brush against his shoes. The city lights twinkle beyond his silhouette, outlining him in an ethereal glow.

whenever the season ends, i should stay over again!!!

it’s been too long since we just got to hang out, yknow??

since im out of town a lot its hard to see u

You’re always welcome, Bokuto-san.

I meant what I said. It was nice to see you.

u can call me koutarou you know

ive known u for like ever

Seven years.

But I digress.

I’m just used to calling you Bokuto-san. Would you like me to change that?

nahh if ur comfy with it its fine~

but the options open!

anyways it’s kinda weird keiji

im doing great!! but its like i do even better if i know ur there

not like watching me but just

there i guess

theres a word for that

what is it? do you know??

I...have a guess. But it’s not something I should say over text.



Is it passable if I call you tomorrow?

ur giving in quick :D

Only because I know you’ll talk my ear off about it if I don’t address it soon.

You’re persistent.

im just curious >:O

I never said it was a bad thing.


did it bother you

when people thought we were together

because like

it didnt bother me




That caught me off-guard. Why are you asking out of the blue?

i asked u about it earlier and you avoided the question!!

it was super sneaky

i almost didnt notice

but im the best!!! so i caught on to ur deception later on

you did that thing where u wouldnt look into my eyes and you messed with ur hands

im onto you~

Bokuto-san…I really shouldn’t tell you over text.

when will u then???

you can trust me!!

im like the best didnt you know

i can totally keep secrets

like the time kuroo told me not to tell anyone he accidentally took a cat home during the training camp our first year!!!

You just told me.

okay but ur KEIJI

ur also the best

we can share being the best together

so u get to know all the secrets!!


keiji hear me out

i have a theory


itll blow ur mind

I’m listening.

how do you feel

about me, i mean

thats a weird question huh? but i need to know!! its for the theory i swear

…Your theory is already heading in an odd direction.

keiji please

Okay. You already know that you’re my best friend.

I am…fond of you.

ooh fond is a good word

im fond of u too!!

I’m glad to hear it.


That felt strange. I’ll stick to Bokuto-san.


geh fine


heres my theory




Are you alright?

i...forgot the theory

it was in my head and then bam!! it was gone

im sad

I’m sure it’ll come back to you in time.

u said that about my lost taiyaki in the mall

and i never found it!!!

Taiyaki and your mind are two very different things.

but still


i dunno

u dont have to tell me why

but are you okay with it??

being associated with me like that???

There’s no one else I would rather have that association with.


be careful!!!! if i didnt know better that would have sounded like a confession!!


u know im not super careful with my words

so as ur elder im passing on my advice to u

I...appreciate it...

im glad i could help :D

anyways!!!! whenever i remember ill tell u

I appreciate your consideration.

But it is getting quite late.

Shouldn’t you be heading to sleep soon?

oh!! ur right!!!

as usual keiji!!!

i gotta go to sleep earlier i think were having extra practice bc we have a game soon

I’m glad you found the time to come to Tokyo.

Good luck, Bokuto-san.

You’ll do well.

heck yeah i will!!!!

good night keiji

dream of like

whats that food u like again

Nanohana no Karashiae.

yeah that!!


i remember u telling me about ur deadline earlier

just dream of that and you’ll be fine for tomorrow!!!!


even if u dont dream about it you’ll be okay

Thank you.

I’m fairly confident I can finish tomorrow, but it feels nice to hear it from you.


i’ll say it more often then!!!

oh its midnight

happy new day!!

Happy new day.

Please go to sleep.

okay okayyy

goodnight keiji

sleep well!! :D

Goodnight, Koutarou.

Dream of good things.
