While it wasn't a big deal, that doesn't mean it wouldn't have weighed on Iori's mind. And most importantly, what Iori did there DOES lead directly to the question that she asked Taichi.
So, almost all signs point to me being wrong about Heartseed switching in for that part, and honestly, I'm glad I was. I much prefer that its actually Iori doing that. Playful happy characters like her are typically also.... well, not terribly bright, to put it kindly. There is often no sign of particularly intelligent thought in them. Iori already came across more nuanced than most, but I love that she clearly.... well, actually thinks and contemplates things like a normal human being. She's at least decently smart. She's playful and teasing, but she's not an idiot.
Really? I'm curious what made you change your mind on that. I had initially commented that what was said there did not sound like something Iori would ever say, and your previous explanation that it was really Heartseed made a lot of sense.
I went back and watched it again, and it isn't just what
is said in that scene, but how
it was said, that makes it seem unlikely to me, that Iori was the person who said that.
The word usage is much different from Iori's usual conversation style. I guess Iori could
have been trying to jokingly imitate a more formal/sophisticated way of speaking, but I think that Heartseed being the actual speaker there, seems more probable.
