Day 23: Birthday
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GONTAAAA WOOOOOO
...Alright...You got there safely...Everyone’s gone off to do their own thing?
That’s fine, but make sure to keep an eye on them.
Yeah, that’s all, I just wanted to check that you were safe and sound. Sorry if it makes me sound like a parent.
Haha! Yeah, good point. Anyway, I’ve got things I need to sort through, so I’ll hang up now. See you later.
*Makoto hangs up.
I take it that was Kurafto you were talking to?
Yeah, I just wanted to make sure they’d arrived on camp safely.
Jeez Makoto, he’s not your son. I’m pretty sure he has his own sense of responsibility...
Well...it IS Kurafto we’re talking about.
No, he definitely has his own sense of responsibility, but...that’s what I joked about to him. His response was “you say that but I’m the one who has to look after 11 kids for 3 or 4 weeks.”
He has a point. Hehe.
Credit to Kurafto, he’s nothing if not faithful to you.
I’d’ve thought our most recent incident was nothing but proof of that...
Quite...I still feel sore by the way.
I apologize on his behalf.
Good...I wouldn’t hear it otherwise.
Forgive me for sounding rude but...part of me thinks that you deserved it.
I suppose...you’re right...
So...now that those kids are out of our hair, and the islanders are working on that satellite tracker, what are we gonna get up to?
Well, I can mostly handle it by myself, but I appreciate the backup. It’s...
Celeste was our classmate. Therefore, it should fall to us to make sure that she is successfully detained, right?
Yes, that’s right. I see you already have some idea of the situation.
But what are we gonna discuss about it? Isn’t it pretty simple that we just get her to the court, she gets declared guilty and be done with it?
Actually, it’s not quite so simple as that...
Why? You think that she’s got something that she can pull out at the last second to declare her innocence?
No, nothing like that. The courts have accepted all the evidence against her already.
The challenging part is actually getting her there.
You mean...the transition?
Think about it this way guys. We don’t know how valuable Celeste really is to Zetsubou as a member.
Due to their limited numbers of authority figures, they’d probably need as much help as they can get in order to function as a group, let alone topple the Future Foundation as it currently is.
You say that, but they came AWFUL close.
Mondo’s right. Even with the limited numbers, they’re still a threat.
Once again, I’m-
Do not apologize Byakuya. No one is pointing fingers.
I still think Mr Togami and Mr Naegi have a point though. Without Ms Yasuhiro, the plan to kill Ms Samidare and frame Mr Naegi wouldn’t have gone as successfully as it did.
And if Organization Zetsubou were already super dangerous without her, think what might happen if they’re able to regain her manipulative prowess and sophisticated mind.
I’m not saying they’d be unstoppable, but...
No, now that you say that...
Anyway, the point is, if Organization Zetsubou plan to free and regain Celeste into their ranks, the best chance they’d have to so is during transit between the Future Foundation, and the courthouse.
And presumably once again during the transit to whatever facility she is to be held at.
In other words, as soon as Celeste leaves this facility, Zetsubou will more than likely make their move.
Wait, but...if that’s the case, wouldn’t it just make more sense to keep her here?
We take her out, and then she either gets lost in transit, or Zetsubou break her out of prison or court. No matter how you slice it, it’s just safer to keep her here!
Yes, but...if we don’t take her to court, we face legal trouble from the government.
It’s been part of the law for centuries for every court case to have fair trial. If we don’t get her in a courtroom, then in the eyes of society, we’re detaining a woman for no reason.
*Leon spits and turns his back, resting his head on a nearby wall.
You doing ok man?
Do I look like I’m ok?
*sigh* Whatever. This is just a major pain in the ass. Why do WE have to be the ones to be responsible for the shit that SHE caused.
Because it falls to us, as her classmates and friends, to see she faces the consequences of her-
FRIENDS!? PFFFFT! When was she EVER our friend!?
She’s a cheat, a thief, a liar and a killer! She’s not our friend! She never was! So quit living with the mindset that she ever cared about us at some point! Even if we cared about her!
Hina I’m...I’m sorry...that wasn’t cool of me.
If I may interject in this conversation for a brief moment.
*Hifumi steps forward.
I...agree that we should be the one’s to shoulder the responsibility for Ms Yasuhiro’s actions.
But I also agree with Mr Kuwata that we should stop showing Ms Yasuhiro any sympathy!
She’s treated us as nothing more than dross, and garbage, for who knows how many years! She proclaimed in that closed mock trial that she was more than happy to let us all die if it meant she could be saved!
She’s a traitor, and a demon woman, and we shouldn’t treat her as anything but!
Not to pick sides...and not to stir the pot any more...But I also agree with those two. We need to step back and look at the facts.
Friends...TRUE friends, do not betray each other. They extend a hand when you fall, not kick you down like she did.
*Hina wipes her eyes.
You guys are right...I know you are...Celeste is nothing more than a problem for us...
She’s not our friend...she never was...
However, as I said before, I still think we should be the one to bear responsibility for the chaos she caused.
Several reasons. For one, if we don’t, who else will?
And another reason...is for Mrs Nae-Kiri.
Kyoko? What about her?
Celeste killed Yui Samidare. One of her closest, and only friends before she met us.
We have to resolve this situation, for both Kyoko, who is unable to be with us, and Detective Samidare, so that she may rest peacefully.
...When you put it like that...
*Leon slumps down into the sofa.
Sorry...I really am a massive jerk sometimes.
No, you’re fine. You gave us all a reality check we needed.
Our main issue still hasn’t been answered though. What are we to do with Celeste, even after the trial? Do you think there’s a chance we could bring her straight back here?
I won’t say here, but I CAN try to convince the courts to detain her in an FF facility.
Of course, that’s not something I can promise, and it’s not as if FF facility’s are the MOST secure place in the world, but we have to take what we can get.
Again, sorry, I guess I set us back a bit.
Stop apologizing for everything, it’s fine.
But then there’s the real issue. Prison breaks aside, the most likely time that Zetsubou will strike is during transit. When we’re actually transporting her to the court and back.
What can we do to prevent any sort of ruckus?
Considering Zetsubou’s unpredictability ‘n all...We should probably expect anything between an assault, or a whole army of Monokuma’s, right?
Yeah, Hiro’s right there. What the hell are we gonna do if they drop a whole army on us?
I...hadn’t actually considered that...But it’s not like I can pull out an army of soldiers at the ready.
Why not? Isn’t Celeste a high-priority inmate?
That’s true, but...even still, it’s easier said than done.
Well, I’ll take your word for it...
If you ask me, I think the most effective thing to do would be to secure her in a highly fortified vehicle.
An armored truck you mean?
Something like that. And alongside that, bring along an entourage of soldiers and police. Enough to take up the roads without being an inconvinience. And maybe some helicopters for good measure.
Hm...That should be just within my budget.
Well, hey, I’ve got another idea. In case Zetsubou do attack, why don’t some of us tag along?
Yeah, in fact, we can make this a group project or...something.
You know, now that I think about it, Mondo’s got a good idea.
Me, him, Taka, Leon, Sakura and Hina can all fight decently well, so we’ll be able to support the vanguard if something goes wrong. The rest can all hang back and survey the situation virtually, using Alter Ego or something.
That sounds like a good idea.
Hey, remember that I can fight too. Not as well as the rest of you of course, but I can wave an electric baton when I need to.
Well, the more help the better I suppose. Does that sit well with you Leon?
You don’t need to get my approval man, but...yeah, if it came down to it, I’d be glad to bust some skulls.
And with an armored vehicle, no bullets or Monokuma claws are gonna pierce it. Not like we can do much better.
This plan doesn’t seem entirely foolproof, but I’m sure we can workshop it. It’s our best option for now at least.
Indeed. I for one, am satisfied.
Right...Let’s go with that for now. I think someone should go and visit Celeste, to update her on the situation.
In that case, let me-
No Hina. I’ll do it. I have something I’d like to tell her anyway.
*Everyone, recalling what happened previously, shoots Makoto a look.
I won’t do anything rash, I promise. I know what happened last time...didn’t look good on me.
But if push comes to shove, the soldiers will just deny me entry. I won’t fall for her tricks twice.
Alright Makoto, we’ll give you another shot.
Just be mindful.
I will...Don’t worry.
(Best friends hanging out.)
I do enjoy our time together.
Here is the sixty-ninth chapter of The Hope Foundation! I hope you like it!

Did a Hunger Games Simulator for the Danganronpa characters so I decided to share some of the highlights:
candlelit ice cream dinner date
inspired by Aoi’s “My Future” event in Danganronpa S
i spent far longer than i should have on this
Sleepover at Hina’s house!
I think they should have gay sex
PLEASE HELP/SIGNAL BOOST IF YOU CAN
This is a super long shot but many years ago, before danganronpa was available in English, probably around 2012, I bought a set of buttons that had each character from the game. I believe this was at the convention Anime North, which is held in Toronto. Well, recently I've been playing through danganronpa decadence and decided to see if I could find the buttons.
And I did! I found almost the entire set stashed together. Almost. Two (maybe three) of the pins are missing. As someone with ocd, this has been driving me CRAZY. I've torn the house apart looking for them, but I can't find them anywhere, and don't know where else they'd have gone without the other 13 pins. I want the set to be complete, or at least to try. So I'm posting here hoping someone can help identify the original artist. I doubt they still make danganronpa content since it's been basically a decade, but they might still be around on the internet, or someone may recognize their art style.
Here's a photo of what some of the pins look like. They're all the same style, just with the different characters from the first danganronpa game.
Hey everyone! I made a carrd about Aoi and how lesbiancoding plays into her character! Check it out for super epic analysis of her relationships with comphet, gender and other women made also by a lesbian 😎
