Kai seemed like a level-headed guy who would be the voice of reason (Joe being a moral center and Keiji bringing intuition and a detective nose), but this throws him into a new light.

KNEEL BEFORE THE WICKED KING!


I'm more surprised it was revealed this early, if anything.

Sara did think she recognised Kai when they first met here, so it's not like you couldn't see this coming at some point.

As a major Zero Escape & Dangan Ronpa fan, I'm definitely interested in seeing how this one goes! Feels like a pretty good mix of the two.

Regarding this new revelation... didn't Joe say earlier that he'd gotten close enough to punch the stalker in the face? So he should recognize him as well. Is that why he was so suspicious earlier, talking about how the culprit is likely blending in with them? That would explain a lot.

I also find it interesting how early the game seems to be flagging both Kai and Sou (the person who told us about morality votes) as suspicious. Presumably that means neither of them are actually behind it, since it's too early for that sort of twist to be revealed, but we'll see.

Has Joe ever seen the stalker before? He might have just assumed the stranger in Sara's house was her stalker because that's a pretty reasonable assumption to make.

No music.



"A… Ah, I’m fine…"

I can hardly get any words out… I can’t let him suspect me. I can’t let him realize...



"…"

"…Miss Sara."

"Sara! Are you okay?!"

"Joe…"

"It’s okay… I just felt a little drained…"

"Don’t push it! Lean on my shoulder and we’ll rest."



"Got it…!"





"…I’m okay now."

"For real?"

"Really… "

"In exchange… If I say any complaints… You better come help me right away."




Investigate above the dartboard.

"Don't you feel wind blowing from above the dartboard? Doesn't seem like an air conditioner or anything."

Investigate the hole.

"Don't slip and fall down it!"

Investigate blue door.

"That's the room where we did Russian Roulette."

Investigate red door.

"Won't open, huh..."



Music stops.



"Kanna…!"

"H-Hey, is it okay for you to be up?"

"…I… I…"



"No… It’s not that…"

"I just… really wanted to ask you…"



"…!"

"Please… give me an answer…"

"Back then… could Kanna have… actually saved her sister?"

"………"

"I was disoriented… so I didn’t hear what everyone else said. But you and Joe… and Mishima and Nao… You all had the same trial, right…?"

"Kanna…"

"…Could Kanna… have saved her?"

"………"



  • Honestly, we can't answer this. Though the Sara / Joe, Nao / Mishima pairs both got through their trial successfully, the box Q-taro had worked with Kanna's unwhittled key. Maybe Kanna's trial was designed so that only one person would survive.

I was about to tell her the truth, when...

"Oh my, Miss Kanna. Reko and Nao were looking for you, you know?"

"…Ah…"

"I heard you talking here, so I came over."

"………"

"Mr. Mishima…"

"…"

"Please tell me… I…"



"Eh…?"

"Because we only had one key, we… We had to remove the other restraints by force."

"…!"

"…Luckily, Miss Nao had myself, and Miss Sara had Joe."



  • Lucky for Mishima that Nao and Sara weren't paired with Sou.



"I…It’s not a lie! This is the truth, Kanna!"

"I suppose it was a trial of… both assessing the situation, and of might. For you and your sister… It was a trial with hardly any chance of success…"

"I… I don’t believe it! I won’t! You’re all trying to deceive me…"

"It’s true, Kanna."

"S… Sara…"



"E… Even if it sounds like a lie… It won’t change the reality…"

"We’re all telling you… the truth…"

"………"

"Miss Kanna… You regret it, yes?"

"I… Kanna…"



"Her sister was frantically trying to help! But Kanna’s an idiot… She didn’t listen…!!"

"What was your sister like…?"

"………"

"…Sister… My sister was… kind… Even when we fought… she’d never be cruel…!"

"She was always thinking about Kanna…!"

"…!"



Music stops.

"Was it not that your very existence gave your sister happiness?"

"…"

"Miss Kanna, I can sense that you were loved, as if it were in the very air."

"Surely… Surely, you were raised with the utmost care, were you not? I’m sure she was a wonderful sister."

"…Ah… Aah… sniff…"

"Miss Sara, if you were her sister, what would you say to her?"



"Kanna… When you smile, it makes me happy, and when you cry, it makes me sad."

"Let me… protect my dear sister. The fact you’re alive… makes me happy!"

"…Sis… ter… I miss you… sister…"

"Now, the time for blaming yourself has passed. Your sister is surely watching you from somewhere."

"…Kanna…"

"Kanna won't give in…! Because… her sister is watching…!"




"Dammit, you nutty professor! What happened to “shout when you find her”?!"

"Oh dear, it appears I’m being yelled at."

"That’s not it, Reko. See, um… Let’s go and I’ll explain, okay?"

"…Hm? R-Really…? Sure, okay…"

"I will return to searching, myself."



  • Mishima lied, but he had nothing but good intentions.

"No, I am thankful to you…"

"It’s thanks to you two following along that I was able to make something of it."

"Nah, I couldn’t do a thing…"

"Miss Sara. Do you understand why Miss Kanna came to talk to you?"

"Eh…?"



"…I do…?"

"Miss Sara… Until we can leave here… Please take the role of Miss Kanna’s older sister for her."

"…!"

"And Joe, her younger brother."

"C’mon, not the elder brother?!"

"Hahaha… Well then, another time…"

(Me, act as Kanna’s older sister? I wonder if… I can do a thing like that…)






Talk to Nao, Kanna and Reko.

The three are chatting calmly.

"Glad you regained consciousness, Kanna."

"Thank you very much… Sorry to worry you."

"Kids don’t gotta be all respectful! Let your feelings out as they are."



"Reko… It seems like you’re enjoying yourself too."



  • We only need to collect the dummy bullets and revolver with Sou. Everything else; collecting the dart, lighter and finding the leg can be held off until after the Russian Roulette.


"Alright, let’s open it up!"



  • Not sure why Sara just didn't ask Mishima to open the door after Sou tried.

"Whew… That was one stiff door!"

Investigate behind the door.

It’s dark behind the sliding door.

"Maybe there’s some clue in there!"

Joe stuck his hand into the darkness.

"Hm… What’s this?"



"I think I saw this online once… It’s a tool for cutting cigars to smoke them."



  • If Sara picks up the lighter when she's searching with Joe, Joe admires it before rapidly flipping it open and closed.

(Do I look like I would…?)

"…Oh! More importantly, there’s something bigger in the back! Alright, what’s this?"



"Weeaaagh?!"

"Looks like this one’s a doll limb too. Take it, Joe."

"Wh… Why are you so calm…"

Talk to Gin.

Gin is searching at a low eye-level.

"Bars are just full of alcohol, meow."

"I hate alcohol, woof! And I hate my drunkard dad more, meow!"

"…"

"What…? You’ve got a quiet look, woof."



"Hey, once we get out of here, let’s play together, Gin!"


"Huh! Then I’ll beat you up in video games ‘til you’re crying, woof!"

Talk to Mishima.

Professor Mishima’s inspecting every inch of the room.

"Please tell me if you need anything, Miss Sara."

"Oh, oh? What is that?"

"Huh…? You mean the cigar cutter?"

"Precisely. It’s a tool used for smoking cigars… You won’t be smoking, will you, Miss Sara?"

"O-Of course not! Obviously…!"

"Ah, well… Then… err… Could I take it?"

"Uh… Professor Mishima, are you going to smoke a cigar?"



(As long as you’re an adult, I think it’s fine…)

Handed the Cigar Cutter over to Professor Mishima.

Professor Mishima is grinning.

"Oh… Miss Sara."

"Professor Mishima, did something good happen?

"W-W-W-What are you speaking of?! There’s nothing…! Indeed…!"

"Like, maybe… You’re happy about the cigar?"




"That cigar looks really expensive, huh?"

"Yes…"

"Might not be something you can buy in Japan…"

"Hrmmm…"

"Should someone put it back where it was?"

"What in the world are you saying?! …Ah, err… well…"

"I know! Perhaps it would be good to inspect the cigar first! Yes!"

"Hmm… Let us try using the cutter on this cigar.

Professor Mishima cuts it with a practiced hand.

"Oh…? What is this?"

Amazingly, there was a bill inside the cigar.



"Aha…! It seems it wasn’t a real cigar!"

"What a relief. Smoking is bad for you, after all. Ahh, thank goodness, thank goodness…"

"………"



"Miss Sara, please take the unused lighter and this 1000-yen bill. When I really think about it, you will likely find more use for them."



(…So he did intend to use the lighter.)

Professor Mishima looks dejected.



A vending machine with high prices.

"Both water and soda cost 1000 yen!! Wow! What must that even taste like?!"




"Whoa…!"

"…! Is that a doll arm?!"

"It’s way too realistic… Wish they’d cut it out…"

"Oh, lemme hold onto it, Sara. Be grateful!"

  • That's all the limbs.

Music stops.




"Open ‘er up…!"



Investigate the torso.

A clothed doll torso leans against the wall.


(Head, left arm, right arm, left leg, right leg. This should be everything.)



"…We’re doing it…! Okay, I’ll call the others!"

"Well now… We’re finally doing it."

"Hey, actually… Where have you even been?"



"Sou…! You’re okay!"

"That’s my line! …Good, so everyone’s safe."

"My heart is beating fast… What could possibly happen…?"

"I got the door open just in case."

"So our escape route’s secured!"



Keiji skillfully attached the parts to the doll torso placed there… The right arm… left arm… right leg… left leg… And… the head.

………

…Nothing’s happening?


"…Wait. You smell somethin’?"

"…Huh?!"

"Hey… Is it just me, or is the room going white?!"



"P…Poison…?! Not good… we need to leave the room…!"



(I can’t see anything…!)

I can’t even see past my own hands. There’s nowhere to run.

Are we all going to suffocate?

I’m not… prepared.





"H… Huh?! Y… You’re… The doll?!"



"Heeheehee… Yes, I am the doll that you just rescued. Advanced, am I not?"

"Haaaaah?! The hell’s goin’ on here?!"



"Stay away from me, you creepy-rear end puppet!!"

"Ehehe. There’s nothing to fear, you see? I will offer you all support…"

"Ah… oogh… oooh…"

"Ahaha… Sigh… Is there no one who can speak calmly here?"



"I'll ask. Just what are you?"

"Tell the friendly policeman too. I’m not really following here…"

"Ehehe. Then we’ll begin with my introduction…"



"Ehee. My master has instructed me to guide you brave souls, who have overcome several trials, to the Main Game."

"Your master… In other words, you’re on the side of the kidnappers."

"S… So you’re our enemy?! Don’t try and say you’re not!!"

"Ahaha! How very serious! Ahaha!"




"Ehee… heehee… I know… I just have to tear you up first…"

"Tear us up…?!"

"Ahahaha. As a warning, yes…"

A beep sounds.

"…"



Music stops.

"Ehehe. Anyone will do, heehee. If it’ll make you quiet…"

"W… What did you do?!"

"Eheehee, what indeed?"

"Hey!! Answer me!!"

"Ahaha, oh, very well."

"Ahaha. Then by all means, starve to death here, all of you."

Not one of us could speak up anymore. We could kill one of these people, stuck in the same situation…? Who we had considered allies? Or else… we would be killed by them…?



"Ahaha, don’t go so pale, everyone! I’ve got something good to hand out!"

A smell lingered in the air. A smell I’d never experienced before…



"Take it off!! Take it off, old man!"



"NOOOOOOOO!! PROFESSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR!!!"



Professor Mishima pushed Nao away.

And with that, he fell backwards in front of Kanna.


"Help!! The professor!! The professor’s going to die!!"

"D…Don’t!! If you touch that collar…!!"

"Hahahahahaha!! How unladylike. You wet yourself?"



"You’ve learned what a majority vote means from this experience, haven’t you?"

Awful… This is too awful…

It wasn’t an instant pain. He was burned at length… And unable to even writhe… he died.


  • And even going through that, Mishima was still concerned with Nao's safety.




"Heehee… heeheehee… You annoy me, you powerless little girl… …No."

Music stops.



Stop.

"I… I…"

"Hahaha, I saw all of it. How miserable you were in your First Trial, Kanna."

Don’t trample on her. On Professor Mishima’s concern for Kanna. On the words he left her.

"So even dolls bleed red."

"I’ll be waiting… on the grounds of the Main Game…!"

Okay, um, holy poo poo. I'm definitely glad the professor went out instead of Joe, and those collars were obviously bad news, but still.

Also, her comment about "20... no 12" raises quite a few questions. I assume this means what the names in the bar were hinting at - that the game started with 20 people, but a large number died during the first trial - but 12? Before the professor's death, we only knew of 11 people, and 1 confirmed death. So where's our 12th person hiding at? Are they the mastermind?

"Oops, my hand slipped," is so goddamn fantastic that I've decided Kai must be a good guy. So what if he's a stalker? He probably had a perfectly good reason.

Also, if I'm doing my math correctly then 20 original players, with 12 that we've met, introduces the possibility that everyone had a partner of some sort-- 10 pairs, with only Joe and Sara and Mishima and Nao managing to save everyone. There were only 3 keys, but the traps in the other rooms could have been different. This would also mean that everyone other than Kanna lied.

I have a hard time believing that. I could see 1-2 people lying for ~dramatic reasons~, maybe, but it's a stretch of the imagination to imagine everyone is. Maybe some of our unaccounted-for 8 were paired together themselves, and others came in as solo participants? After all, right now we're evenly split - we know of 6 people who were paired up (Joe/Sara, Nao/Mishima, Kanna/Kanna's sister), and 6 who were solos (Q-taro, Gin, Keiji, Sou, Reko, Kai).

I am predicting that, tied to the "The doll parts didn't have gloves", that this figure is not the doll and the point of the gas was to swap her in. Hence the bleeding (and not having to explain advanced AI if possible, though it's always a possibility).

I was curious that at least one of the earlier rooms it was commented that people didn't see any security cameras or similar.

He gets two humanizing scenes for us to like him, then he gets killed because he was distrusted by the other two due to looking creepy. Again, this is well-done.

I dunno what Sou's deal is, but the other person who voted for Mishima was Nao. Y'know, his student that he came here with in the first place. She like definitely didn't distrust him; if anything, she idolised him.

Why she'd vote for him, however, when everyone else seemed to realize that self-voting was the obvious thing to do here is very debatable, though.

Why she'd vote for him, however, when everyone else seemed to realize that self-voting was the obvious thing to do here is very debatable, though.

Is it possible they simply misunderstood the rules? The doll also did frame it as "just a test, vote for whoever," so that also means they lied about the rules in the first place.
