Kasuo had lightly slowed down advancing into the shop when he heard Shimiko introduce herself, especially hearing the last name Chinoike. "Why does that sound familiar..." Kasuo's in a somewhat tired state, he can't really think clearly as to focus on the bell that rang in his head when he heard that very name. "Questions for later, I suppose." after realising she had asked for his name, he quickly cleared his throat and apologised in advance. "Sorry about that, Kasuo Hideaki, happy to make your acquaintance." the introductions were cut short when the heavy fellow with a peculiar started to talk.
The purple-haired individual simply nodded to most of what the man had said, the entire time showing a zombie-like face that hasn't moved to a smile or a negative face of sorts either, just a cold, calculating vibe excluding from how he looked, and how he's feeling currently. "Got it, thank you." Kasuo said in response to the man's instructions, soon following Shimiko to find the aprons, raincoats and the butcher knives, especially noting about how big the knives are. "That's a bit excessive... oh well, if it gets the job done, it gets the job done." he usually doesn't tend to judge on professions or jobs that he has no experience about.
Before he would start putting on the attire Ernie left them, the back of Kasuo's mind had kept searching for an answer on Shimiko's last name. He decided to give up and straight up ask her. "Excuse me, are you apart of a clan or anything? Chinoike sounds familiar."
