Well, hopefully the next murderer knows better than to try and use their Final Ultimate Legendary Earth Power Super Max Justice Future Miracle Dream Beautiful Galaxy Big Bang Little Bang Sunrise Starlight Infinite Fabulous Totally Final Wonderful Super High School level skill next time.

Also, is Akane supposed to be a gymnast? With how much she likes fighting you'd think she'd be in some kind of Martial art.

She is a naturally talented gymnast, not a naturally talented fighter. She just likes fighting instead of doing what she is talented at.

Okay, I can buy that explanation. With Nekomaru Nidai the 'Team Manager' I wouldn't be surprised if something was just lost in translation.

Japan does have a huge issue of bullying, and a tendency to not socially want to stand out, but it's also a thing in the west - Bystander effect is a hell of a thing, but still it does leave a sour taste not even Maharu who puts herself out as the moral and most go-get 'em out of the lot says absolutely nothing to make Hiyoko stop.

Well yeah, she wasn't a guy.

: I guess this Free Time is really meant to be viewed before the revelations about Hajime's lack of an Ultimate ability. Oh well it's not really a big deal

I dunno, considering that line, I think it works both ways. Everyone knows what sets them apart from most people because they know their ultimate abilities. But Hajime doesn't have one/know his and he's still keeping it together pretty well despite that.

I don't know why I'm so suspicious of Chiaki but she just managed to "perfectly exonerate" herself. Like, what if she figured this was all just social engineering from Nagito and the traitor was supposed to confess when their handbook didn't work?

Chiaki being a Terminator would be such a non-surprise, considering how permanently laid back she is.

This is exactly what I was thinking. Did any of those geniuses think of opening one and smelling it first?

Mostly because I've never heard of 'fire grenades' but those sure do look like they could be bottles of lighter fluid with the label removed. 'Huh, the fire seems to be intensifying?"

Neither have I but fire guns are a thing so that doesn't seem like too much of a stretch at this point.

I still don't think the 'traitor' is necessarily the bad guy here.

That engraved message that had the password to the school said something like 'for my subjects' which sounds like something royalty would say. Although I still think the strongest case can be made for Chiaki being the plant.

I hope Souda was the killer because I'm OK with him dying and can't say that about anyone else.

Even if the traitor isn't a bad person, there's still a pretty good chance Souda might panic and try to kill them.

I love any time the artist has to draw someone reading a book because it is always just a little off
Hinata & Chiaki reading it isn't quite as awkward as Naegi reading a notebook 5 feet away from him, but its close

The book looking like it's a 3D model doesn't help things either.

I have to say that Akane's "front tail" running gag is so terrible that it wrapped around to being funny after the third time. Although I don't really want to laugh at it because a lot of Akane's dialogue implies a really warped and hosed-up home life. And that's as much as I'll say on that.

It makes me want to see her free time events more, because she's being such a weirdo right now. It's still fine to a degree though, because Nagito's really violently dead in a way that'd only compare to Nekomaru if he wasn't a cyborg at the time. But all the same I wanna know what her deal is so we can finally answer 'why are you...like this?'

Wait, so Hajime was the mystery person in that flashback with Nagito? ...I suppose being a reserve course student would have made him a nobody, in the sense that he lacked a particularly special talent.

This simulation is falling apart real hard so I wouldn't be surprised if Nagito was there or he's seeing something that someone else saw.

Just wait for the game to suddenly turn into an RTS.

Junko is the way that she is as a result of her Talent. The only way to prevent her from becoming what she is, is to prevent her from developing that Talent ... so basically you'd have to lobotomize her.

I actually kinda liked Despair Girls. I mean, it also existed to hurt you for the majority of its time, and it was nearly entirely ancillary, but I love Toko/Sayo, and she really shines in that game. The game play was boring at best and the game was really, really uncomfortable in large quantities, but I dunno, I feel like the relationship between Komaru and Toko was fun. DR3... not so much. I guess it has pay off, but good poo poo. Half of that series is just hard to watch emotionally, and half of it is just hard to watch because it's entirely pointless edginess.
