Also known as Danganronpa: Kibou no Gakuen to Zetsubou no Koukousei – The Animation, episode 6
This episode started very intense.
Yeah, after such a start you can expect anything. Almost. What you would not expect is to see an actually intelligent AI in a Fujisaki’s laptop and Ishimaru going Super Saiyan. Come on, stuff like that doesn’t happen.
Now to the serious issues. This time I think Ishimaru and Yamada died. That was surprising, because killing two people would be harder than one and I don’t know who would want to go through so much trouble. But, well, let’s look at it closely.
From the psychological point of view the only two people who would go for such complicated crime would be Celestia (super gambler) and Togami (idiot with enormous ego). Also I have no idea about what is going on in Kirigiri’s head, but she doesn’t seem the type.
Now, what about opportunity? Kirigiri and Hagakure were no where to be seen during the events, so they might have done it. Others might have done that too, but we will go into that in a moment.
Now, what clues we have? Almost none, actually. That ridiculous photo with a robot, hammers and that is about it. But what we can do is we can look at who could have done all of it and look for culprit’s wrong moves.
First I started to suspect Celestia. She was near Yamada when he was attacked, and she herself was attacked in a much more gentle matter than others. In fact, she might have hit herself with that hammer. Then she had made Yamada believe that he was attacked by a robot, which might be possible if there are big enough toy robots with remote control. As we have seen, Yamada is kinda dumb, so it would not be a problem.
Now, what happened next? Next Celestia send everyone away and while they were busy she killed Ishimaru. He was killed on the third floor, if I recall. Then she might have went down, and using something (the IA program, for example) made Yamada believe that this time it is Ishimaru. Then she hit him again. Thus she mixed up the whole thing. And she had a chance to remove Yamada’s body.
Also, Celestia actually said “we will all be wiped out, like those too” before Togami or Naegi told anyone that Ishimaru was killed. But that might have been a translation error. Right after that Togami said “their bodies vanished” or something of the sort, even though so far there was only one body that has disappeared.
Well, that is it for the guess game. See you next time (^_^)/
