A very eventful update. Seems there’s quite a bit going on now. The worst part about threads like this is finally catching up with the OP – I’m at a total loss.

Under normal circumstances, I'd push the doll. But I'm more interested in seeing where the game goes if you spare it.

Interesting. If you don't push, Q-Taro and Gin survive, and both Rekos die anyway. I wonder what happens if you do push? Something similarly unexpected, probably. Undermining the player's choice like this feels like a bit of a cheap trick, but we'll see how it goes.

This is also less cheap and actually good writing too because the character Q-Taro also choose to exercise agency and his motivation is nicely and clearly defined. He is sad about not having parents, so when he remembers Gin's relationship with his family and imagines his loss he is moved to take action. This is fine lol.

Even if this isn’t cheap - and I disagree, as Q-Taro would’ve experienced the same motivations before the characters could have found a clever way out - Keiji suddenly remembering that he’d seen an antidote in the kitchen (was this ever even mentioned before?) isn’t spectacular.

E: I suppose I don’t really have a leg to stand on here; I voted specifically to see what’d happen when the Rekos met each other and how it’d handle the remainder of the poison and ended up getting exactly what I’d asked for.

Vote Shin/Sou. He might be useful, sure, but the dude’s hardly there to begin with - surviving this at Kanna’s expense will probably send him right off the deep end.

What a needlessly brutal death. If this is some sort of hosed-up training, what kind of monster is it supposed to turn Sara into?

E: And what sort of risks are they willing to take? AI(?) Sara had, what, a 17% chance of survival? They put this whole thing together with a 5/6 chance that they'd end up killing their prodigy?

Looks like this was the right choice. RIP Shin/Sou.
