♪ BGM: Wonderful Dead 005

Alright, let's keep going. We could head up the stairs...



...or we could find more collectibles.







♪ BGM: DSO_Beautiful Dead

Wh-Where did this come from?
Just be honest! I'm annoying, right!?
Uh... Maybe?
That's right, I knew it. I'm an annoying woman. I'm scared that...Master might hate me.
No, it'll be alright! If you don't want to be seen as annoying, all you have to do is remember the 3 don'ts.
The 3 don'ts?
That's right, just keep the 3 don'ts in mind, and he'll never think you're annoying.
Wh-What is this magic you speak of!?
What are the 3 things!? Tell me, woman!
The 1st one is: don't want. If you say you "want" this or that, boys will think you're demanding. If you want them to do something for you, first you must be a woman *worth* doing something for!
...
The 2nd is: don't be greedy. It's true, it is a woman's nature to never be satisfied and always want more... But you have to fight those urges to be the ideal Japanese woman.
...
And the 3rd is: don't last long. You have to give off an aura that makes boys think they have to take you quick or you'll disappear. And if you have that attitude, guys will start paying attention to you all the time.
Sounds simple enough... But how do you know this stuff?
Well, to be honest, I just came up with the 3 don'ts myself. I used to give love advice on the internet all the time.
Y-You... You're a virgin! How are you gonna give advice like that!
I thought you said that kind of experience doesn't matter! Chastity is a virtue!
Not right now it isn't!



♪ BGM: Wonderful Dead 005

On to the next floor.



We find some sparklies here.



♪ Jingle: Hidden Kids Discovered!

Looks like we missed Jataro. I'll have to see if we can backtrack and get everything we missed this time.



Next, we run into a fairly unpleasant looking area.



♪ BGM: Silence ♫



What should we do? Are you actually planning to open this obviously creepy-looking door?
I mean, there might be something important or useful in here...
I-I'm not gonna help you out if a head starts rolling on the floor like last time!
Don't say that, it's scary...



♪ BGM: DSO_Despair-Syndrome



Th-That's why I warned you! Argh, jeez, let's get outside!



Wait... This is...



What is this? It's written in blood... They're letters, right?
Hey, Toko, can you take a look at th--



♪ BGM: Secret Base ~Left Behind By The Adults~

Kyaaaah!
Gyaaaah!
...
D-Don't scare me like that! If you were gonna tag along with us, make your presence known! Jeez!
...So...it was here...
Um, Mister Haiji...?
You have no idea what this room is, huh? Well I'll tell you... This is a torture room. Those kids were torturing our loved ones in here.
Torture!?
You guys saw that broadcast too, right?



♪ BGM: DSO_Weekly Despair Magazine



It actually had the opposite effect, though. We were all too afraid to come out...
Wh-What?
Such a despair-inducing idea... Someone with experience must have planned it...
You understand now, right? This room... It represents all the despair we were forced to feel. ...All the adults back at the secret base... Their loved ones were killed right here.
...All of them?
It's not an exaggeration. Every single one of us had loved ones killed in this room.
Then...those kids somehow discovered all your identities and found your relatives...?
Yeah... So?
Well, doesn't that sound strange to you? Do you really think those brats are capable of that?
Well, "capable" or not, that's what happened! And that's why we can't show any mercy, not anymore! I'll never forgive those bastards, never!



...You want to see it? When you do... I'm sure you'll no longer want to take their side.
W-We're not "taking their side"... It just... It seems like something's off to me...
...You go on ahead... I want to stay here a little longer. I have to... I have to tell the others about this place. I want to be able to describe it.
Mister Haiji, I understand how you feel, but... Those kids didn't do it of their own free will...
...Let's just go.
Ah, but...



♪ BGM: DSO_Beautiful Dead

He won't even listen to us. It would probably make him even more upset.
But...I wanted to ask him about his little sister, too...
You heard about that from your hallucinations, right? You shouldn't take that as fact...
And not just that, but... A lot of things seem off.
Off...?

♪ BGM: Silence ♫

The victims are all relatives of the people at the secret base... Doesn't that seem strange? No matter how smart those brats might be, how could they possibly learn who they all were?
Jeez... Things are starting to get fishy...
But we've come this far... No way we can head back now.
...
I'm sure it will be alright. You and me... We can do this.
...
Y-You're right...no choice. We have to press forward.



♪ BGM: Wonderful Dead 005

Next up, we get to blast some Junk Monokumas.



And then, on to the next level.



♪ BGM: DSO_Beautiful Dead

Huh? How do you know?
I can smell him... His aromatic, sweet fragrance is getting stronger...
...You mean his B.O. is getting stronger?
Don't say it like that! It makes it sound like he smells bad!
But then again, a smelly Master is good too... That itself is a reward for us...
Us...? You're including me in this?
Anyway, there's no mistaking it. He's close.
But first, we have to get the key.
I-I know! That brat called Monaca has it, right?
But before we go, let me nourish myself...
Ahhh.... Hahhh... Ahhh... Hahhh...
...



♪ BGM: Wonderful Dead 005

Nothing much here, we can only enter this door. Which leads to...



♪ BGM: Like I Would Become A Monster

For some reason...this room creeps me out.
I guess they used this room as a war room. Probably made it creepy for ambience... Pretty blunt if you ask me. But I guess you can't expect much from kids...
Wow, you're mean. I'm glad you're on *my* side!
That's a backhanded compliment...



♪ BGM: Wonderful Dead 005

So, here our main objective is to blast this Bomber. And when we do...



♪ BGM: We Can't Change The World

Do you think Byakuya could be in there? This is exactly the kind of room where he'd be hidden!
Gch!



But before we head for that passage...



♪ BGM: Wonderful Dead 005

...collectible!



...this is the last Socki page. I think Socki just loving died. drat.



Anyway, on to that passage. Let's head up the ladder and see what's there.



♪ BGM: Alice in the Children's Land

But Master is inside a storage room... What kind of storage room would be up a ladder?
Well, let's just check it out for now.



♪ BGM: DSO_Ocean Breeze Dead End



We enter the room, and...













Huh? This person is Junko Enoshima?
She's different than how I pictured her. She looks like your typical, trendy teenage girl...
Wh-What are you saying? Do you know how many people have died because of her?
Sorry... You're right.
And more importantly, this creepy room... It's like a cult headquarters.

Komaru then notices something.

...What happened?





I see... No wonder. She has a wicked face...
Really? Looks like a normal smile to me...
That just makes it creepier. Posing with Junko Enoshima and smiling like this...



Hmph, no wonder she wants to be The Successor. She worships Junko from the bottom of her heart.
...But...don't you think it's a little strange?
Wh-What do you mean? Don't tell me you're still on about that ghost or whatever... If you're curious, you can question her yourself.
I thought Master would be here, since this is a hidden room and all. But I guess not...
...



♪ BGM: Wonderful Dead 005

There's pretty much everything Junko in here.





The photos are combinations of random backgrounds and Junko sprites. There's also some repeats.



Also, a collectible!







So Monaca was basically being completely ostracized by her family.



That's about it for us in this room. Heading on, we climb another ladder...



...and find ourselves at a secret door.



That brings us to a higher area at the same place we were before.



♪ BGM: DSO_Beautiful Dead

We find a locked door!

No doubt about it, Master *has* to be on the other side of this door. ...
...Huh? You're not gonna lose your composure this time? You're not gonna like, cling to the door and cry and shout and make ugly faces?
Well, it's true that I *might* do that, but it's weird hearing it from someone else.
When your purpose lies just before you, sometimes you need be as calm as a corpse.
...That's a creepy example.
Anyway, I'm not going to have some half-assed reunion now, but a full, joyous reunion later.
And when *that* happens, I'll cry and shout and make ugly faces in Master's arms...
...Are you sure he'd be okay with that?
There's no way he'd dislike it! Jeez, you don't understand men at all!
You need to be in love... A woman in love is the most beautiful woman of all...
...I'll try to remember that.



♪ BGM: Wonderful Dead 005

And then, one more collectible.





Who wrote that? If it was the Warriors, you'd think they'd have called Junko "Big Sis Junko" instead of "The Goddess". So was it a Remnant? Hrm.



And that'll be it for this update. Next time, we're going to begin the endgame proper.
