(moved thread to appropriate forum; I know Chapter 2 is a little confusing in that regard, in that Korra appears in it, but TFLF isn't part of the Dìqiú Suite. :)

In fairness, that was Yui's reaction, and the others were all a bit preoccupied staring out the window.

Mugi explained what and how, and why was obvious. :)

Well, I have rather suspected for a while now that the Kotobuki Group is actually some kind of vast extralegal syndicate, and the things like the music store the girls go to and that tea shop they worked at in one episode are just the Legitimate Fronts. In this view, Mugi is sort of the family's Michael Corleone. You can see her in her mid-20s, talking with her mysterious never-seen father about how he always hoped she would be Senator Kotobuki, or Governor Kotobuki, or something...
