I’m not sure what the verb is in this sentence-- it’s in the scene where計、数 and 高竹 are having a consolation drink together:

青みがかった。
I figure it splits up like this:
青み が かった。
But what is the verb? 買う?飼う?支う?勝つ?駆る?その他?There are too many possibilities, none of them obvious. Anyone know?

Maybe it’s this: 青みがかった - Jisho.org
