Doesn't look like Mikan would have to remove her bandages and put them back on afterwards, if it's her. Her bandaged arm and leg are fully covered in the video.

That is what is making me want to say Mikan is a red herring.

I have a feeling that Souda's obsession is going to be the red herring this chapter. Its just too drat obvious.

Danganronpa is messed up enough without throwing some into the mix. Sure there's child murder. But nobody is eating the corpses... yet.

Okay, I'm gonna take a shot in the dark at some of this.

I'm guessing that the students in this game are the Remnants of Despair. They were currently really lovely and the Future Foundation wanted them dead, but Naegi, being all Ultimate Hope-like, decides to run them through this virtual simulation and prove to people that they could improve as people, thus instilling worldwide hope? But then Monokuma comes in and fucks everything up, and DR2 starts. Or was the killing game part of Naegi's plan?

Still a lot of things I don't understand, like how Nagito w/ Junko's hand plays into things, or who was on the boat with him, or all the portraits of the founder of Hope's Peak...

That's what I was just thinking myself. This was an attempt to 'rehabilitate' the Despair rear end in a top hat Club and then somehow Monokuma got involved and hosed everything up.

Unless... Monokuma is being controlled by Junko's hand! Evil Dead style!

So that's why Nagito has Junko Ocelot's hand sewn on. He was hoping to bring her back. Or something like that.

I can kind of see every character going all Despair Crazy. Except for Ibuki and Nekomaru, I just don't see what kind of path they would have taken to get there.

Edit: Also Teruteru got it right way in the beginning. Nothing is real.

Oh god I just had a weird idea. What if Monobear is still Junko? Like somehow after getting pasted the Remnants scooped her up and did some trickery fuckery and sucked out her mind. And now she's here to prevent her minions from getting better! Although I have little clue how she got in the machine, unless it's through Nagito's hand.

This is what happens to me when I dream on Nyquil.

I mean, if the machine creates an avatar of those present and junko's bits were present in all of them going in, would that not be enough for her to get an avatar?

So far we've got a hand. Wanna bet Fuyuhiko got an eye?

That makes sense, I just went off the assumption that "absent" was a category of vote similar to abstaining the same way "graduate" and "repeat" are to yea and nay.

And I think with that flashback and the lack of anyone else's presence it's very likely that Hajime is the one who brought the usb with the virus on it to the island. That scene's dialogue also heavily hints that Hajime(?) is extremely talented and either doesn't know or doesn't remember nagito which throws a wrench into the theory that he was one of the remnants of despair. It's possible that Hajime and the super talent murder man are the same person, but I have no idea why he had the virus yet didn't know Nagito or vice versa.

So Hajime is what, Super High School Level Reserve Student?

Nagito replaced his whole arm though, not just the arm? I guess that big block of stone did mash her very well.

Oh... now I get it. Hajime introduced the virus to the system as part of some ridiculously complicated plot.

Izuru was the guy in DR0 right? I think I remember that much.

It could easily have been the original goal but Izuru Kamukura's successors and faculty decided to take it to their own hands. Kinda like Boss' legacy was interpreted pretty drat differently by Big Boss and Patriots.
