It's quite telling
It's quite telling
This chapter was a turning point for Fushi. They examined their priorities and realized that going home was most important. However, their reasoning is shit. I cannot stress enough how bad their reasoning is. Everything in this chapter is geared towards Fushi's decision at the end, so let's just go through it in order.
First they get hooked by another way to help Mizuha make friends. I'd like to note that they ask Mimori to teach them to make mud balls specifically because they want to show one to Mizuha later.
Mud balls themselves are another sort of trophy, just like the feather hair-ties. Fushi likes trophies a lot themselves; the clearest example is the doll they replicated in Chapter 69 because they wanted to show it to March. When they finally give it to her in Chapter 134.1, it comes as an unempathetic response to March's grief over Parona's death. When Fushi shows up after going missing for what I estimate as at least a week, March won't give them the enthusiastic response they're hoping for.
Since their conversation with Satoru, Fushi's been reassessing whether they can actually stay away from their friends for centuries all over again, especially since they know that their friends have assumed that after they die in the present era, they'll be free to pass on. They took a break from fighting knockers for one day to initiate their plan with Funa's body, but it's still weighing heavily on their mind. Mimori's arc works as a sort of thesis for the present era; on some level Fushi recognizes this and uses her as an example of what they should do. So her telling them directly that she's glad the knockers took her body is another crack in their resolve. They won't listen to Mizuha when she tells them to let the left hand stayed because it's proved that it can control her whenever it wants, but when Mimori, who is knocker-free, essentially tells them to wait and see how it plays out, they can't refute her.
It also helps that she revealed that removing her knocker didn't actually fix anything. Her life is the same as it always was, the only thing that's changed is her determination to enjoy it. This is meant to show the reader that although Fushi and the others failed to solve all of Mimori's problems, she'll be fine. But Fushi takes this as "you failed so there's no point anyways."
Fushi also just doesn't want to deal with Mizuha right now. They're bad at handling her, everything they do just makes things worse. Although they haven't acknowledged it, they know that she isn't like Kahaku at all, so they've lost a good part of their motivation, but they also don't want to throw her to the wolves. It would be a great time to back off like they think Mimori implied, but Fushi still has this obsession with being the good guy. Everything's lined up so that they can leave in the easiest way possible, but they haven't quite tipped over the edge yet. What pushes them to return to March is this:
Fushi made something specifically for Mizuha because they thought she would appreciate it and their effort would be rewarded. Not only does it not work, she outright rejects it and Fushi's response is along these lines: "March would never do this to me. I'm going to go back to my friends, because they appreciate me." Satoru told them that even if they eradicate the knockers, they won't be able to see their friends again, so they've decided to go for instant gratification instead. Like I said earlier, this will not go over well on their friends' side.
I doubt they're going to give up on the knockers entirely, but for now, they just want to be with the people they love. They may even go back to school routinely, as evidenced when they tell Mizuha they'll see her tomorrow. But the way their whole fantasy of seeing March again is framed—like she's Mizuha's replacement right now. Like she's their proof that everything is fine (their reward for doing a good job? Their TROPHY if you will???)—makes them look unwell. Which they are.
This analysis is focused mainly on Fushi, but I think I should touch on Mizuha's behavior in this chapter. She's gone right back to her reliance on Fushi, making it look even more like her attempt to control them was something the left hand encouraged and assisted. When it potentially ruined her relationship with Hanna, she doubled back and returned to them because when it comes down to it, she still trusts them by default. Like we saw at the start of Chapter 145.2, her newfound control was an act. I'm including the panels I'm referencing because it's just a really pretty sequence, you know?
Fushi, similarly to how Mizuha tried to give Hanna a feather hair-tie, used a mud ball to communicate their feelings to her. But Mizuha finds a trophy is meaningless in this situation, and like how Hanna threw her hair-tie away, she drops the mud ball on the ground. Fushi doing what she wants and asking for instructions doesn't make her happy anymore. I'd say based on her desperation, her fear right now is that she exposed too much of her weaknesses to Hanna, and Hanna didn't like what she saw. She still has the mud ball at the end of the chapter and Fushi knows that she and Hanna got into a fight. Whether or not they'll try to intercede or leave things entirely to Mizuha will be affected by how March and the others react to their return.
I should probably chill on the Florence pics but I just love her so much
