“The knife from the kitchen?! As if I'll allow you suicide...”



“Graaah!!”

“This is... resistance.”





“It is a step I was able to take... because you bought me time.”

“A policeman knows about murder cases, yes?”

“Yeah... if I'm in charge of 'em.”

They really made the creepy stalker hard to dislike, didn't they?

...Also, it's kind of interesting how Miley doesn't actually punish people for using violence against her. Neither Kai nor Q-taro suffered any consequences. But I guess creepy death games are more entertaining to the villain than just offing people for breaking the rules.

You know, that actually reminds me of a question I've been meaning to ask.

Why?

As in, why are they running this death game? What's the point?

There is two possible answers in my head-I'll label the two as "Option Zero Escape" (The people running this game have a concrete objective in mind) and "Option Danganronpa" (Getting people to murder each other is fun, lol).

It's worth noting that the 'hosts' seem to be playing by some sort of rules themselves. Violence against Miley isn't actually a restricted action going purely by the rules. She also hasn't killed anyone without it being a vote or a failure state in a puzzle.

Yeah it was easy to assume something was going on with Kai behind the scenes after that, Q-Taro seems like a totally different person though so who knows.

Kai's monologue there reminded me of a dressing-down of The Hunger Games that I read years ago that was mostly 6,000 words of rambling (cw:rape mention) but had some relevance to the genre and in particular his speech:

posted:

From the very beginning of the Game it was immediately true that everyone but one got killed. From the very beginning, before anyone dies, you are guilty of everyone's death.

That's the Game. It's not like they went in there thinking, "I'm not going to kill anyone because I am planning to escape this Game." No one backed up their pacifism with suicide. Katniss's thinking is basically, "I'm not butcher, but I am going to try and survive." The movie elevates her passivity into a moral act, which it isn't, that's the trick. This is a closed system. Whether she shoots them down herself or waits for the psychopath in the group to do it for her, it's the same.

Just because the system tells you, "the other tributes are your enemy," doesn't mean it's a factual statement, you have to answer the Thin Red Line question: "who's doing this? Who's killing us?"

The Game is rigged to prevent all choice but allow the illusion of choice. It looks like Katniss is free to make personal decisions, but no matter what her free brain decides, everyone around her dies as planned, huh, that's odd. The only "free" choice, the only way to beat the Game, is not to play. If you really wanted to be a moral agent in such a terrible environment, you'd have to convince the other tributes to all agree not to fight each other, knowing full well that the soldiers will therefore come-- that is the point of the maneuver, to expose the evil of the system instead of allowing them their deniability, "oh, we don't kill anyone, the kids kill each other!" You have to sit there and Prisoner's Dilemna the hell out of this and hope none of the other tributes breaks ranks and opens fire. It is the only anti-system choice short of revolution.
Battle Royale came out in 2000 (i'm old ) and THG/Danganronpa 2010ish so we've had plenty of time to dissect the genre, and Kai's bit makes me hopeful that YTTD has more subversion to come.

Yeah probably. There's been a whole lot of mentions of people we haven't met yet (bar instructions, torn note etc) so while they might be right around the corner, I can't help but wonder if life is at a premium because enough people are already dead.

Am I inside my memories?

Let's remember things one step at a time.





But someone was lurking there, and knocked us unconscious.





Tied to beds and with collars put on us, we were forced to solve a puzzle for our lives.

That was... the First Trial.




But...





Music stops.










In my crumbling heart... someone's voice echoes.



There... my senses gave out again.






Coming home from school, she encounters her stalker. When she hurries home, she finds her mother collapsed. She comes to in an unknown room. Enduring various death games with 11 participants, Sara wins their trust. But in the Main Game, she loses her best friend Joe. With the deaths of high school teacher Mishima and homemaker Kai, there remain 9 survivors…



He clumsily tried to assist Sara after learning of her stalker. Sara’s lone acquaintance in the Death Game. His fate was sealed by drawing the Sacrifice card. At the end of the Main Game, he left the remark “all of you must be good people,” then perished.



Acts casual, but feels somehow shady. He often seems to be guiding others into giving Sara their trust. Confessed that he once shot a person, and hasn’t been able to fire a gun since. He promised Sara he’d tell her his past if they survived the Main Game, but who knows…



Filled with self-loathing after losing her sister, Sara and Mishima told her a kind lie. But Miley’s “sister-killer” remark meant it only wounded her more. In the Main Game, Kanna notably made statements implying she was working with Sou. What might have transpired between the two of them… is unknown.



Despite his giant, gaudy appearance, he’s very wary. Apparently he was raised in an odd orphanage, so his dialect is all over the place. Found his resolve faster than anyone in the Main Game, showing a willingness to doubt others to survive. Unable to fully believe Kai’s parting confession of having contact with the kidnappers, he’s showing signs of looking into the truth.



Though unbelievably weak for an adult man and seeming as if he disliked conflict, everything about him gives off a “darkness.” He was very shocked to be attacked by Nao and have the laptop clue stolen from him. In the Main Game, Sou lost trust and transformed, seemingly filled with malice and madness. The sight struck fear and hatred into the survivors.



A flashy band player worried for her dear bongos. Kind to the weak, and often harsh on men. In the Main Game, revealed Alice was her brother. Ever since Alice committed murder, the two became effective strangers.



Has a deep relationship of trust with Mishima, and beat the First Trial by cooperating with him. After losing Mishima in the so-called practice vote, Nao ran amok, stuffing his head in a box and fleeing. Threatened by Kai, she attacked Sou to get Kai the laptop, but because Mishima’s head disappeared, she realized Kai betrayed her.



In spite of the aloof impression he gave, Sara remembered that Kai was the stalker who came after her that day. Threatened Nao and took the laptop from Sou, and it’s suspected he hid the Mishima head Nao was protecting somewhere. Confessed to having contact with the kidnappers in the Main Game, but shows clear hostility toward the kidnapper Miley. Sou revealed emails indicating ties to the Chidouins (Sara’s family) and an affection for Sara. But killed as a victim, can the truth about Kai be known…?



Adores “big sis Sara,” and acted tough through the harsh Death Games, but was wracked with fear upon being trapped in a cage. The paper Gin found in the shredder revealed the truth that Alice Yabusame was a murderer.



Deeply trusting of his former student Nao, together, they conquered the First Trial. But not taking any chances regarding his student, he gathered votes for himself in the practice round, and thus lost his life. This threw Nao’s heart into disarray, making her lose control, stuff Mishima’s head in a box, and flee.



While the other survivors endured traps, he locked himself alone in the Red Room, hiding there until Sara found him. In the Main Game, he confessed to being Alice Yabusame, a murderer, and Reko’s older brother. Furthermore, after the Main Game, Alice discussed something with Keiji. “The name of the person I killed was Sou Hiyori”...



Calling herself the Floor Master, she explains the Main Game and distributes necessary tools for the Death Game. With malicious words and actions, she puzzles the participants and takes their lives, and destroyed the hearts of Kanna and Sara. Kai and Q-taro’s resistance has made her bleed, and she’s often chagrined. ...Is she really a “doll”?

“Glad you didn’t get any major injuries. C’mon, sit down on the bed.”

“...Where is this place?”

“This is the third floor. There’s rooms prepared here, one for each person. In other words, “get some rest.”



“Don’t mention it. ...But I think you should sleep a little longer.”

“I don’t want to worry everyone…”

“Everybody else is resting too. No need for you alone to push it.”

“You’ve come this far without a break… You at least deserve to sleep.”

I bet he just lost his partner to some SAW crap like this and then shot the culprit. A know-it-all told me once that the PTSD batting average for causing someone's death was like 80% so the two-for-one (or one-for-one) probably dunked him.

Didn't he already admit that he'd killed someone by firing a gun and that's why he refused to do it? So almost assuredly that the death's still traumatizing him.

I think Keiji is just a genuinely good person, but his coyness makes him carry the hint of untrustworthiness, unlike Sou (or... Not-Sou) who always seemed to be lying even before it came out he was a filthy liar. The hanging question for me is, given we've seen names on sheets from other participants who either are in hiding, or didn't make it... was Keiji actually alone in his task? And if he wasn't, why does he pretend he is?

As for the game so far... I will admit I don't dig death-game stories. I think the strongest element of the first two Zero Escape games was that ultimately the point of the 'death game' was that everybody got out alive. The fact that so much death just... was inevitable in ZTD along with the forced segregation of the cast preventing interesting dynamics from forming, was largely what makes me consider that game so weak. There being an inevitable "No, people are going to die and there's jack and poo poo that can be done to stop it." Doesn't appeal to me. That said, this is an extremely strong story so I've been following along quite intrigued to how it's going to suss out.

I guess what hinges for me is we don't know how many rounds they have to survive. 2 people are eliminated in each round minimum, the majority vote and the Sacrifice.

So we have 11 People in the main game, technically we could have had more, but that's the question. Do they just keep doing Main Games until there's a single survivor? Going by 2 Minimum each time, we go 11>9>7>5>3>1. This doesn't work. Since the Sacrifice always gets 2 votes, any 3-player scenario ends with the Sacrifice voting for themself twice and winning automatically. We also need to account for the number of people initially placed in the game, which, according to the blackboard in the bar, is 20.

So that makes the initial amount of votes Odd, 21>19>17> repeating. However, not everyone survived their first trial. So here's the question I.E. the rules.

Is it a certain number for victory, or a certain amount of rounds? Technically, we know that 2, minimum, can survive by voting for the Sacrifice, If only 3 people survived the First Trial (Let's say Sara, Jou and Sou) then there couldn't BE a game. So I think that it's a certain amount of rounds, that concludes when the game can no longer be played.

“...Yes. Thank you very much.”

“Want to go show your face to everyone? They're worried, so...”

“...Yes.”




  • We'll get a bad ending if the level gets too high.




Music stops.

As soon as I entered the large, bright space, I noticed the people there.



A singing voice echoed through the room.



  • It is pretty, though not what I would have expected Reko's singing to sound like.



“Hmph... You look awful.”

“...Alice...”

“Why're you listening in from the wall? Isn't she your sister?”



(Right... Reko and Alice were siblings, huh...)



“I don't care to introduce unnecessary distractions with my presence.”

“Pretty conscientious for your sister, eh?”

“...Always the provocative one, aren't you.”

“...You all....”

“What do you... think of Reko?”



“...I suppose I can interpret that in a good way.”

“Doesn't seem like she gets bashful, not even if she's dealing with brawny men.”

“Kind to the weak, harsh on the strong... That's the impression I get.”

“...She was different before.”



“...Precisely.”



“She was harsh even on herself... But especially harsh on those who didn't act, without regard for whether they were weak.”

“She's undergone a startling change.”

“Due to your murder case, I take it...?”

Music stops.

“...!”

“Mwahaha... Exactly right...”

“...Sorry to make you hear these trifles.”



“Sara, you came to!”

“Sara...!!”

“Big sis Saraaaaaaaa!!”








It's warm...

Everyone must be exhausted, body and soul...



“...”



“E-Er, sorry...”

Alice leaves.



“Nothin' yet. After that awful Main Game, we've been off by ourselves resting.”

“We were given rooms for every person, so... We carried you here, and have been standing by...”

“But that bad doll girl's nowhere to be found, woof. Should we go look for her, meow?”



  • The logical answer would be to explore the new area or even to try keep an eye on Miley, but after everything Miley has done, especially to Sara's best friend, I think a lot of people would be after some kind of justice.


“We'll find her...”



“...Big sis Sara?”

“Ah... U-Um, it's nothing.”

“Alright, sitting around's not my style either. Let's take caution exploring the area.”



  • There's nothing to investigate in this room.




Investigate the debris.

Rubble is scattered all over.


Talk to Q-taro.

“...!”

“Sara! Ya okay now?!”

“Q-taro...”



“I'm... not strong at all.”

“... 'Course, yeah. Sorry.”

“You really suffered. Sayin' not to sweat it after that's just insensitive.”





“Yeah...! I wanna get revenge for yer best friend... And also...”



“Q-taro...”

“I'm goin' back to searchin'. Wanna find clues, whether it's about an exit or about the kidnappers.”

“I'll... do my best too.”





Talk to Alice.

“Ahh... I'm gonna look over there. Come tell me when you wanna go elsewhere.”

(Reko...)

“You, Sara Chidouin. There's a courtyard here... Don't you think it odd?”



“Hmph... Of course it wouldn't. It's only the appearance of a courtyard.”



“Can we talk for a sec, Alice?”

“I refuse. ...If you have business with me, come when I'm alone, Keiji Shinogi.”

“Right then.”

“He really is a little scary, isn't he?




“Almost like... some kinda security room, ain't it?”

Music stops.

(Hm? I think I hear a faint sound... Is one of the monitors... on?)



Talk to Kanna.

“...!”

As soon as Kanna noticed me, she averted her eyes.

(I don't think... I can talk calmly to Kanna right now.)



(Even if she was just being used... Right now, I just can't do it.)

Investigate the machine in front of the monitors.

In front of the monitors is a machine that, despite it's complexity, offers only simple functions.

I really love it too. That one image just sums up what kind of hell he's enduring behind all the friendly smiles.

I also can't wait to see what happens in the Bad Ending .
