By Episode: Danganronpa Ep 3
Plot Summary: In Hope’s Peak Academy, 15 students who are considered “super” in their own ways are admitted. Monokuma, an electronic bear, appears in the gym offering a way out of the tightly-secured school. However, the rules are to kill and find out who the killer is or stay in the academy forever.
Episode 3: Kill or Live: Not Normal Arc
The trial begins and people give out statements in order to figure out who the killer is. There are many, however, who suspect Naegi, as Sayaka died in his room.
Aoi and Sakura stated they saw Sayaka take the kitchen knife when she went to get something to drink in the kitchen.
Kirigiri defends Naegi by stating that the door in the shower was taken apart using tools. Naegi did not need to do that since he knew how his door is broken. Also, only the girls shower rooms have locks. The killer did not know that the room he/she is in was a guy’s room so naturally he/she used tools to open the door to kill Sayaka.
The murder message 11037 made it clear for everyone who the killer is. Read upside down it read “Leon”. The class convicts Kuwata Leon, the super baseball star. His manner of disposal of evidence can also be done by someone with good aim (hitting the incinerator from afar).
Leon is sentenced to death by hitting with a thousand baseballs from a machine.
Thoughts: I figured out who the murderer is in episode 2, because they gave away too many clues!
Student Count: 13
This arc was too easy.
