Difficult to see Sonya not making a move on Gary after this. I mean, revenge and tension relief in one package. If Yuki has any fans left, they can say that it'd be a shame if she lost Gary now, after it may just have started to cross her mind that she maybe ought to be nicer to Gary, but hey, drama.
One notes that Sonya has learned that the Swirly is an oral technique. After Zii failed to say as much when she first mentioned it, I did wonder if that was going to be a plot point later.
The relationship between Sonya and Zii reads a little oddly to me here. After the high drama of their last meeting, I'd expect there to be a bit of tension in the air between them, especially when the subject turns to sex and Sonya admits to a need to get laid. (In a more realistic story, I'd expect Sonya to walk out of the band, on the grounds that seeing Zii hurt too much, and go looking for a music career elsewhere on the "success is the best revenge" principle.) But they're talking quite objectively. Oh well, comedy. Actions have very few consequences.
Meanwhile... I'm wondering about timelines. I would guess that this scene is roughly contemporary with Gary's visit to Amber; if the band is rehearsing after work, it'd explain why Gary had an evening free from Yuki. If so, does this mean that a frustrated and confused Gary is heading home to find only a frustrated DiDi in residence? Or would that be too much logic to expect from Ma3?
Actually, can anyone who knows more Japanese then me work out whether Yuki is sending a text to Gary in the first frame, or receiving one, or what? If it's the latter, I'll guess it's a "We have to talk", sent as he heads home - but of course, Yuki has now been distracted from that...
