Recommended Posts

Just finished the safe ending.(9 hrs 9 persons 9 doors).

I am left with more questions than answers,

This ending is soooo unsatisfying.

EDIT

Just finished the game. I mean...

WTF. That last scene, why is the Alice women there? DO they ever meet up? 

ARGH... This ending was soo good but soooo infuriating.

And confusing.

Finished Danganronpa V3

I have no screenshots for my upcoming walloftext because they decided to gg console peeps and block screenshot abilities from Ch 2 onwards for both PS4 & Vita versions apparently because they wanted to limit spoilers or something #ShouldveJustGonePCMasterRace

First let me load up some Mass Panice Debate craziness and some Debate Scrum coolness and Closing Argument thinkingness and finally New World Order v3 epicness as I type this because i fking love all of these BGMs:

Spoiler

 

 

 

Individual Chapter Thoughts (ULTIMATE SPOILERS INCOMING!!)

Spoiler

Ch 1 - Y'know, technically I should've seen what was coming from a mile away... Shuichi and Kaede were just moving waaay too quickly it should've been an obvious death flag like it was with Makoto x Sayaka. But I guess since they teased us with Kaede being the 'protagonist' she automatically was given plot armor in my book.

Anyways I LOVED the twist with Kaede being the murderer, you basically got to see the murder-in-the-makings but just not realize it with Kaede spending all that time stacking those books in the library and then randomly inspecting things in the storage and finding the shot ball while waiting for Shuichi to fetch the cameras... For the actual trial though I was too stupid and so when it was time for the revelation with the whole camera-having-Flash bit I actually accused like 6 other people before finally going OHHH its her >.> #seasonedDRplayer

Again, this was one of the best DR trials for me, but shortly after i was hit with a nasty bout of despair and salt since it meant another great character (Kaede) was thrown out at the very start (and i was looking forward to playing as her for the entire game, goddammit ._.). Damned Decoy Protagonists. False advertising!!! From then on anytime before a Class Trial where they showed all the character CGs with Kaede's redded out I would always feel a bit sad ;-;

Out of the three Danganronpas, I'd rank her death as the 2nd most tragic 'poster' heroine deaths, with the 1st being Chiaki (since she's the only DR2 member who actually doesn't live) and 3rd being Sayaka. The writers messed up with Makoto x Sayaka so her death didn't really feel as impactful as much as Shuichi x Kaede

Misc Comments:

  • WHYYYY KAEDE DIE ;-; I WANTED TO PLAY AS A FEMALE FOR ONCE, DAMMIT SHUICHI WHO ARE YOU ULTIMATE DETECTIVE WANNABE YOU AIN'T GOT NOTHING ON KYOKO
  • Maki and Kirumi are my first impression favorites. Red+Black Kuudere and Ultimate Maid pls
  • Monokubs are pretty annoying, it's like they merged the brats from Ultra Despair Girls with Monokuma

 

Ch 2 - Really felt like a 'business is business' Chapter. Just another day at the park. But goddammit, already one of my favorite characters has done goofed and committed murder, RIP Kirumi. Maki, you better live to the end. Also RIP Ryoma, he actually felt like a character that would survive until top 5 with the whole reason-to-live bits, and man that motive video being empty was depressing. ///PostTrueEnd comment: They all technically had nothing to live for anymore holy cow.

Insect Meet n' Greet was l0l, Gonta not being able to capture Miu because she was walking around in underwear was l0l

Trial was whatevers. They spent way too much time trying to logics obvious things like how to hide the body in the tank of piranhas and how to ropeway from the Ultimate Tennis Lab across the Pool to the Gym. Strand of Agony was a great execution, gogo Kirumi.

Misc. Comments:

  • MAKI! WHY WON'T YOU LET ME HANG OUT WITH YOU, STOP GUARDING YOUR DAY CARE ALL DAY ;-;;; 
  • WAIT, WHAT? SHE'S THE ULTIMATE ASSASSIN???!!! HOLY SMOKES,SHE'S AUTOMATICALLY BEST GIRL NOW 
  • Ouma's annoying af, he's the successor to Nagito, the tryhard who just pisses everyone off and should die asap, 
  • Angie's also annoying with the Atua crap, cute to see Tenko fighting so hard for Himiko's attention though
  • I just realized, people who unlock their Ultimate Labs have a super high chance of being involved in the next Class Trial, Ch1. Ultimate Piano Lab was open -> Kaede, Ch2 Ultimate Tennis Lab & Ultimate Maid Lab -> Ryoma & Kirumi... and later on Ch 3 Ultimate Art Lab & Anthropologist Lab -> Angie & Korekiyo... the pattern stops from Ch 4 onwards so I'm guessing it was purely a coincidence on the writers' behalf, but anyone who made this deduction would be pretty spoiled on who'd be involved in a murder, esp the following Chapter:

 

Ch 3 - Oh great, Angie's the prevalent character this time around, and she's brainwashed half the crew for her little Student Council BS, i was honestly expecting there to be a twist that she's actually the Ultimate Hypnotist or something xD. 4th floor of the school is unlocked, jesus the music here really matches Korekiyo and Angie's creepy supernatural thematics - their Ultimate Labs are also discovered, along with Tenko's, so yeah.

Shuichi x Kaito x Maki are established as the Makoto x Byakuya x Kyouko, the Ultimate Trio, and it was actually pretty nice to see this level of comraderie with the nighttime workouts and all since the previous games kind of lacked showing this level of intimacy during the main story and left it for Free Time events.

Reviving a dead participant was a cool possibility, I was hoping for Kaede's great return or something, but alas Angie got offed by Korekiyo by wrong-place-at-the-wrong-time, heh, reminds me of a certain Ultimate Traditional Dancer's death... 

Wax effigies were creepy as hell. Was nice to see Kaede's sprite again though.

The Trial was interesting, Prior to main perp reveal I was actually really, really scared that the culprit could be Maki- usually when characters are given time in the limelight it spells their impending doom, especially with how Maki was just revealed to be the Ultimate Assassin and started hanging out with Shuichi and Kaito more, along with her becoming your investigation partner this time around (last time a certain Ultimate Gambler decided to get serious and be involved with the case, she was the perp >.>). Made worse by her suggesting Tenko could've committed suicide and her knowledge of stabbing one's vitals.

But PHEW! It was Korekiyo, bwahaha. They obviously took from past games the double murder and possible double Blackened concepts, but ultimately fell short on execution when they just decided fk it, the same guy killed both. It was actually super obvious too, idk what they were thinking trying to pin the blame on Himiko just because she suggested using the room, but overall the whole ritual itself and how precisely it had to be set up just screamed only Korekiyo could do it. Also, goddammit Ouma and the fake death scene. A triple murder would've been awesome...

Misc. Comments:

  • Really digging Maki being escalated from non-existent side character to main heroine, writers made good choice xD.
  • Bummed out that Tenko had to die, losing her was like losing Ultimate Musician Ibuki in DR2, and post Ch. 3 the overall atmosphere of the game felt a lot quieter and empty without her around
  • Himiko got a nice dose of character growth after this though, so she's probably gonna be survive to the end due to the writers' "it'd be a waste to kill this character now" complex they did with the Ultimate Gangster.
  • Angie's the first of the dark-skinned DR girls to die, RIP 
  • Didn't really care much for Korekiyo, felt like his whole sister-persona thing was just a way to mirror him with DR2's Ch. 3 Mikan despair outburst. Cheap.

 

Ch. 4  Gonta stupid, chibi-sprite Neo World Program stupid (we all were expecting a cameo Jabberwock Island let's be real), Miu stupid, I was actually REALLY hoping that there would be a twist, something like "even though all sprites have same strength, with 2v1 it's still possible for Gonta to hold her down while Ouma did the actual strangling, so he wins the trial by successfully framing the convenient memory loss Gonta" but nope. Miu also attempting to kill Ouma because paranoia got the best of her felt really uncharacteristic too, just too weak of a motive. ///PostTrueEnd comment: But hey, she ultimately did create an invention to change the world- the electrohammers/bombs that paved the way to the final couple of trials and revelations ^^

Misc. Comments:

  • Too much time on trial spent explaining the world loop physics. I was snoring during that Psyche Taxi on how the bridge board landed on the left side of the rock towards the mansion side despite flowing to the right towards the chapel side. Psyche Taxi in general is by far the worst Class Trial minigame, jesus it just takes waaay to long and breaks the tempo.
  • Uh oh, Kaito has a terminal illness, I swear I was just waiting for him to eventually do the whole 'I can't die here! So I must escape! I must win the Trial!' but alas...

 

Ch 5 - What...? Ouma's the mastermind of this Killing Game? Well holy shit, that's as unclimactic a revelation as Monaca making an appearance during the Danganronpa 3: End of Hope's Peak. Something that makes sense but felt too easy to be the answer. And jesus, I heard it's possible to beat the 2D escape game without the Electrohammers, fk that.

The tie in revelations to the Hopes Peak Saga were nice, and really started making this game feel like a true Danganronpa Hope vs. Despair. Them being the LAST 16 survivors of humanity stranded on a ruined Earth was a huge downer, that means Makoto x Kyouko x Byakuya, Future Foundation, Hinata/Izuru, Komaru x Touko...all of them died? Boooo. Also makes this entire killing game and everyone's motives and convictions meaningless, Kaede's 'let's all escape and be friends'...Kirumi's last ditch effort to escape for the people... Ryouma's giving up on surviving... Gonta's 'everyone would be better off dead'... the follow up BSOD the surviving people had where they just stayed in their rooms for several days in utter despair was great.

The trial was, as all other 5th Trials in the series, pretty fun and emotional. Maki spending so much time in the beginning with her adamant belief that Kaito was 100% dead and belittling Shuichi's 'we don't know for sure!' makes sense once you realize she's the Blackened who shot the poison arrows, and you even get to have a Scrum Debate with just Shuichi and Maki vs. the rest of the cast once all the evidence points to Kaito clearly being dead. But of course, with Ouma being the sly bastard that he is, it turns out that's not true after all. Yada yada yada, Electrobombs disabling Monokuma's surveillance cameras, the hangar door alarm, and the hydraulic press's safety function along with using a pause-play camera and we got ourselves a recipe for an unsolvable mystery!

Ouma tried to pull a Nagito with his suicide gambit to fool Monokuma and while it was pretty clever, i still give Nagito the crown having the most WOW attempt even though I hate his guts. 

Misc. Comments

  • RIP Kaito. Good riddance Ouma. Overall just super relieved that Maki wasn't the culprit, losing both of of the Ultimate Trio would've been absolutely devastating
  • Maki had a thing for Kaito. D'awwwww :3 Was kind of hoping for her to fall for Shuichi, but I guess thematically she fits with Kaito better.
  • Would've liked to see how the 5th trial would've ended if Kaito let Shuichi play along with deceiving Monokuma, but I guess we saw soon enough in Ch. 6 that the rules weren't so set in stone after all since Ch 1's trial was rigged.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chapter 6 - Well, that's gotta be the most Danganronpa way to end all of this huh, that's all i can say honestly xD.

Tsumugi being the mastermind didn't shock me too much, usually with Danganronpa the way things are set up literally anyone can be plot twisted however the writers wanted- could've just as easily been Himiko or Maki if they wanted. Kind of glad they didn't follow up on Kaede's twin sister, would've been too stale. It was also nice to finally see Tsumugi's Ultimate Cosplayer talent in action, and we got some nice lip service from all of the characters from the entire series to boot. That was pretty hype.

This is the first time a mastermind's been present thoughout the entire game though, so it gives a nice replayability aspect to the game to see how Tsumugi's been acting, though if i recall she's been pretty... normal and plain all this time. Perfect cover. I mainly just glossed over her living this long as being the writer's way to make up for offing a certain previous bluehead from the get go. But yeah, over on TV Tropes they already highlighted foreshadowing elements such as Ch 1 Tsumugi is the first to say that the culprit couldn't be the mastermind, or Ch 5 Tsumugi being the first to express shock when Ouma says he's the mastermind, during Free Time Tsumugi has the highest amount of time being around the Library / 2nd floor Classroom, her seat position in Class Trials is the same spot as Junko's was, etc...

Didn't really care much about the Ultimate Survivor Rantaro, the horse a twin b riddle was bullshit, K1-B0's robot battle with Monokuma & the Exisals was cool but it's like why couldn't you just do that earlier, the revelation that Flashback Lights created false memories was horrifically cheap, amnesia itself is already cheap enough now we gotta throw in fake memories? Booo.

RIP Kaede though, makes her death exponentially more tragic since she actually wasn't the perp after all... YO FK YOU SHICHUI WHEN I DERPED AND DIDN'T PICK KAEDE DURING THE FIRST TRIAL UNTIL SIX TRIES I ACTUALLY PICKED TSUMUGI

 

~~
But let's get to the meat of the goodies, whoop-dee-doo, the entire Danganronpa franchise is fiction in this particular universe* and the audience is the one that's been letting this killing game between hope and despair for continue V3 -> 53 seasons (i wanna play the 5th game, Final Danganronpa 5 goddammit xD)

*I thought DRV3's universe was meant to be our real life universe, but apparently it's just another fictional universe where DR1&2 is fiction / didn't occur, and their protagonist is K1-B0 since his eyes are what they've been seeing through and acting as his inner voice. Something like that.

Only Danganronpa could pull this off without looking like a total joke. I was kind of shaking my head a bit that this was ultimately all Danganronpa boiled down to, but not many games can break the 4th wall to this level so I just went along and enjoyed it for what it was.

K1-B0's one man stand as the Ultimate Hope Robot and having to take on Tsumugi's Despair in a Mass Panic Debate with Monokuma being Loud as hell was my favorite moment of this game, it was almost as epic as Hinata having to overcome his inner Despair in DR2. That was some epic shit right there.

Ultimately though Hope's not the answer this time as it simply continues the cycle, so Shuichi brilliantly comes up with the only way to finally put an end the Killing Game: Choose neither Hope nor Despair. No more games, let the timer run out on those stupid Psyche Taxis, Hangmans' Gambit, Mind Mines, we're done playing. 

Surviving cast: Shuichi, Maki and Himiko. Not too shabby.


~~
Overall I'd rate DRV3 a 9/10. enjoyed it more than DR1 but less than DR2. Any fan of Danganronpa will enjoy it nevertheless, it's a new Killing Game, new cast, Class Trials are more flashy, the cases quite often thematically focus on finding the truth vs. what you want to believe which makes the culprit plot twists even more suspenseful. Some of the investigations themselves are a bit lacking though since they try to make the murders happen in pretty complicated ways when they really aren't and so sometimes you'd spend a nasty chunk of time explaining an obvious detail in a Class Trial. There are some tie-ins to the first two games and the whole Hope vs Despair saga, and there's an Ultimate Revelation to be had that will literally make or break the entire Danganronpa franchise for you :upupu:

And the route I was mostly looking forward to, Chronos' route, was pretty much the worst of them. Taking such a beautiful and interesting character, and coming up with a complete bogus plot twist, just to turn her into a loli with all measurements halfed including IQ for the sole purpose of making a cheap and boring imouto route, was borderline heresy. Changing a character for a route is a big no-go anyway. If they wanted a loli Chrono, then why didn't they created her that way in the first place?

Uhhhh, they did create her that way in the first place. That's how she was for the entire game. Maybe it's hard to tell because of the perspective in the CG's and the way she wears her kimono, but she's definitely a loli from start to finish. Just look at her on the cover:

Can you somehow back this? I checked the text and the protagonist calls her a 'woman' the first time they met and not a 'girl'. And the protagonist also mentions that she looks very different than before when she changed to a school girl and she also apparently split into smaller beings. Naturally, it could be just because she's clothed differently and the splitting into smaller things could be just in a more spiritual sense. But she really looks AND talks a lot more mature in her original form. I'm pretty sure that she was definitely made younger than before. There are definitely a bit too much indicators here to just reduce it to a few perspective issues in the CG's.

You probably missed the edit I made a few minutes ago:

b16ff9b9df87ecd63ffdc9ceb6d4253d.png

That's not too different from her physical form in the true route, from what I can tell. 

The protagonist calling her a "woman" isn't a clear indicator in my opinion because who knows what gets lost in translation, or how the protagonist wants to call an immortal goddess. I think his comments on her at the start of her route was largely in reference to how different she seemed when she was walking around like everyone else and wearing normal clothes. Her difference in behavior was chalked up to how completely unfamiliar she was with having a physical form, basically reducing her to the status of a toddler who grow up in a hurry.

It just shows that she has a flat chest. But the key features of the CG's in the common route are her waist and face.

However, I can't really prove my point either. Everything that's said could be interpreted in different ways and the CG's can't really be trusted because she has different clothing and hair cut in the true route.

Anyway, even if you're right it doesn't really make her route much better... :unsure:

So, SubaHibi, finished Down the Rabbit Hole I & II and stopped right at the beginning of It's my Own Invention.

Well, I can't really say that I formed a solid opinion about the actual quality of this VN, but I'll make a list of things I liked and disliked so far.

+ The peaceful atmosphere at the beginning of each chapter slowly gets thrown into a complete mindfuck by the end (espetially at the second chapter) and it's done really well.

+ References to philosophy, classical literature, and a lot of other things make a feeling that the author knows what he writes about (though it may be just a feeling).

++ Overall, I often enjoy trying to make sense of seemingly nonsensical stories where everything makes sense in a long run. So far, it looks like this Vn is exactly this type of story. It feels like it throws quite a lot of little hints about the bigger picture (though I'm pretty sure that I miss almost all of them).

+++ Yuki. I mean, I would totally be fine if she was the only protag in the story. She is quirky, smart, and overall quite enjoyable to watch.

+ The art is a bit strange, but it works. The music is also pretty good.

+- The philosophy references are great, but I wouldn't exactly call them mindblowing. I mean, they mostly are pretty basic stuff so far. Though it will still work if they are well utilized in the actual story, so we'll see.

- Honestly, some parts in Down the Rabbit Hole I are pretty boring (the main reason why it took me so long to actually start reading this VN). I mean, it's probably just another case of "The beginning is done intentionally badly to contrast with the later parts of the story," but honestly I'm pretty tired of this trick after I see it in every second plot-based VN.

* Also, it's just a suspicion now, but Takuji might be a bit annoying when the story is told from his perspective.

Now, several speculations about where the plot is going. Obviously, spoilers.

Spoiler

So far I don't really have a theory about the bigger picture of the whole VN (and it's a bit too early for that), but I have an idea that Down the Rabbit Hole II, just like Down the Rabbit Hole I, could take place in a dream. I mean, the hint is pretty obvious, it's in the title of the chapter. Another moment is that the person dreaming is not necessarily Yuki herself. For example, it could be Takuji seeing the world from the perspective of the girl he likes or something like that. Or, in the extreme case, Yuki might not even exist in the real world and is just a product of the dreamer's fantasy, though I doubt it's true.

The main fact that gives me the suspicion that the person having a dream might be a guy is in the whole yuri act in the first chapter. I don't remember the exact places where I got that feeling, but it always seemed that Yuki always had to remind herself that she was a girl and not a guy. Also, at the beginning of the second chapter Ayana mentions that Yuki is "technically" a girl. Well, on second thought, things like that are mentioned quite often, so it could be a red herring. Another part that got my interest: at the beginning of the second chapter we get a short shot of something that might be the real world with somebody quietly talking in the background. I don't understand Japanese, but after listening to the line several times I got the impression that the line was "Taku nii-san". Though, obviously, it could mean anything, so it's better not to focus on a single theory so far.

Also, I wonder how deeply the allusions to Kant and Jung go. Recalling philosophy lectures at the university, the most interesting part about Kantian philosophy was in the comparison between the noumena (the thing that constitute the 'real' world) and phenomena (the things as we see them in our consciousness). Also, Kant stated that phenomena in form have nothing to do with noumena that cause them. I have a feeling this might play a role in the story, but I can't exactly connect it right now. The allusions to Jung are seemingly more obvious (with a few mentions of the Shadow), but I wonder if it goes deeper.

Finished Setsuna's White Album 2 Closing Chapter route! Can't wait for Coda to come out (though it's likely going to be very long)

Started Danganronpa V3, currently on chapter 4, I loved all the previous games and I'm really liking this one (though so far I'm not as into it as the 2nd one)

Also have Doki doki literature club on PTR to see what all the fuss is about

Ch 1 will ALWAYS gank the best characters so while I'm dying a bit inside, that was a pretty awesome 1st ClassTrial

The prologue is nothing new, though it does feel pretty long, easily 1-2 hours of having to explore the entire campus and meet-n-greeting all 15 other SHSL/Ultimate students before the Killing Game is even announced. And then of course you gotta slog around for another hour or two as the cast naturally claims that they'll never participate in such a game, yada yada, this and that happens, First Blood finally happens, and we finally get to have our first trial

 

 

Gank, First Blood...

Hehe, nope :<

Gank, at least for me, came from Supernatural, some Ch.5 'murican TV show on the CW from a character named Dean whenever he speaks of killing something

e: 

 

And they literally call it First Blood in the VN

But yeah, ppl say i tend to speak funnies 'round these parts

Grisaia PT - It was alright but kinda felt that these type of characters were too similar and not as entertaining as 1. 

Golden Hour - I'm really like this one a lot, it has done an alright job of making me care about the characters. 

Edit: Done. The big reveal in the true route didn't put me off. You can kinda begin to piece together what is happening early on but it was alright. Overall, I enjoyed it.

Catching up on some of the moege English releases now that I'm free and don't feel obliged to only play Japanese games raw. Playing My girlfriend is the president. It's pretty average so far and only mildly amusing but the girls are ultra cute. It's nowhere near as funny as I was hoping it would be and the story has very little in the way of actual dramatic tension - which isn't surprising but you can still maintain an interesting story and still be moe as fuck. It's okay so far overall but nothing to write home about. Considering Alcot made this and the glorious work that is Clover day's, it's a bit of a letdown by comparison. Will see after a few more girls but it's not much more than 'filler' for me atm.

Played ATASHINORIRI. It might be an unpopular opinion, but i think it's everything Hatoful Boyfriend wishes it could be. It's better and funnier as a parody and has a true route that is more fitting with the parody aspect. It might as well be the ultimate meme VN.

Now starting the Sharin no Kuni fandisc.

Followup. I finished Yukino's route first and it was what made me write this first comment. I'm now well into Ran's route and it is much more fun. As per usual my problem was more with the heroine rather than anything else as Yukino was really shallow simple and 1 billion percent predictable in not only how she'd behave but what she'd say so was plain boring. Ran so far is much more interesting and super sweet, but still not on the scale of Clover Day's. The evolution between these two games and the years between them shows. I still have 2.5 heroines to conquer so it's too early to draw a final conclusion but it's at least providing me with the level of fun I was hoping for now. I'm saving Irina for last.

I've been playing Cherry Tree High Comedy and somehow reached the normal ending. Its a very uncommon and fascinating visual novel! Hope to find more of this stuffs... Anyways I should try playing older games from my childhood days as a reward for myself once the exams are all over. Perhaps Throne Of Darkness will do.

Now starting the Sharin no Kuni fandisc.

Final thoughts on it:

Masaomi Chapter was really good, but it kinda felt too recycled from the original's last chapter.
Natsumi After was really boring and it exposed how shallow Natsumi is as a character, she has no ambition besides being with the MC.
Sachi After was decent, but it felt recycled from her original arc at times.
Touka After was as good as a Muv-luv Extra route, i'll leave it at that.
Ririko After was a whole lot of nothing, because the interesting stuff from her original ending wasn't covered.
Eri Chapter was actually my favorite, it was a nice short story and a bit depressing knowing what happened to her at the end.

Overall it was alright, but aside from Masaomi's Chapter, there's nothing that i'd consider can't miss.
