I like how this is tagged Keine x Mokou, even though they don't have a scene together, and what they do say doesn't seem particularly affectionate on the surface. At first, I wasn't sure how to understand Akyuu's conversation with Mokou - "greed is a scary thing" seems especially out of place - but it's subtly completed by Keine's request at the end to not tell her about it. Mokou understands that Keine is troubled, but she also understands exactly what would make her act this way; she wants to help, but if it involves someone else having feelings for Keine, she gets jealous, and doesn't want to hear about it. She allows herself to be deceived by Keine, who, even after everything is settled and a clean rejection has been given, doesn't want Mokou to hear about it, although it's not entirely clear if that's only because she herself would find it troubling, or if she's thinking about how troubled Mokou would be, as well.
Also, for Mokou to rely on Akyuu to resolve the situation is kind of running away, but it also shows a remarkable amount of trust not only in Akyuu herself, but also in the friendship between Akyuu and Keine, which turns out to be exactly what those two needed to affirm.
Well, that might just be me overthinking things, but still. I came for Keine x Mokou, and even though they didn't say a word to each other the whole time, I'm feeling pretty satisfied.
