One thing that strikes me as odd is that apparently the survivors are 'restored' to their pre-despair selves but Hinata doesn't seem to be completely down with the idea of turning into some super talent zombie. I'm not sure if that's part of what they meant by it being imperfect or if Naegi/Junko just aren't entirely sure how it'll work out.
There are two possible outcomes here (the reset doesn't count). Either they Graduate, and the consciousnesses they have right now will be returned to their bodies, and Hinata will no longer be super-talented, because all of that will be wiped away. Or they activate the Shutdown, meaning the consciousnesses they had before the program started will be restored, and the Hinata we've known all this time will be gone forever.

Yeah, the implication is that Hinata is so different from Kamukura that he'd basically be committing suicide if he goes with the shutdown sequence(unlike the others, whose pre-program selves are an unknown factor & corrupted by Despair but still easy for them to see as themselves). Hinata's understandably a little hesistant about that.

Maybe... we should try to break out of this loop before the island gets too crowded?

Yeah, but at least we are getting updates once a day. Also, knowing that well continue getting them once a day until the end makes it a bit easier to swallow, too.

Ive waited almost 5 years to see how this goddamn game ends, whats a couple days more.

You guys...I need your help...

I can't get through to Hajime... He's not responding...and it doesn't seem like the in-game help function that's been assisting him this whole time is working either.

If Hajime can't break out of this loop, he and everyone else will be trapped here forever. But they can't stay trapped here. They're not meant to be part of the game.

...We need to get through to him. Please help Hajime figure out what he needs to do.



I'm counting on you all...

This happened to me once when I spilt water on my Hajime. Nothing to do but go out and buy a new one.

Cats do not abide by the laws of nature, alright? You don't know shit about cats.

I feel like we have to make a bullet out of "not part of the game" and then use it on "eternal game utopia". It would make sense to stop the loop by reminding Hajime that most of these people are gone, right?
