  1. When you go back to Kichijoji on the last day you say goodbye to everyone, you can find the doting father and he will thank you for all the trades. He even calls you “my man.”

  2. Sakai is actually the really doting father that can be found near the sniper penguin. You can find him talking to his son during the day (or night) and you can listen in to the next item he’ll request from you (its actually for his son)
