I missed this, but apparently NL recontracted with Flash Wolves for the next season. I was reminded of the practice of Kodokushi, which is usually when a senior citizen dies alone and a company is hired to clean up the mess.
Now what this has to do with NL is that the person who carries the corpse out of the apartment building can go knock on doors and the Japanese people open the door, see the corpse, scream and then pay him money to go away. I can’t confirm this as my internet search has been fruitless and I learned this from a professor during college. Now whether or not is true or not is besides the point, but that story reminded me strongly of NL.
SwordArt is still carrying NL on his back and the two of them keep geting paid.
