Danganronpa 3: Future Arc Episode 9

You are my reason to die

*Same as the rest, spoiler heaven ahead!*

Finally, it looks like the release of Danganronpa 3: Future Arc is back on track.  We were all teased with a recap episode, but thank goodness it wasn’t!

Speaking of Monokuma, he certainly doesn’t play a major role in this series, does he?  Where do you think he is this whole time? Is he just a ploy?

Things start our with some big reveals.  Remember how the building collapses at the end of Episode 8?  Our cast cannot die because… dun dun dun! They are in an identical space under the ocean.  Even though the building above them is destroyed, they all managed to survive because they were not in that part of the building at all. Who would have guessed?

Do you think this fact reveals Munakata as the traitor? Kyoko suspects that he is at least involved because he was involved in the construction of the building.  All events seemed to also play in his favor. Would you agree with her? I’m not so sure.

The awesome Robo-Gekkogahara meets her end.  Munakata takes her “brain” and reunites with Sakakura. Sakakura fills Munakata in on who has died, and in return Munakata tells Sakakura that he has murdered Tengan.  Sakakura says that means Munakata is in charge of the Future Foundation and they can purify the world now.

Sakakura’s dedication to Munakata is unwavering.  He says that he believes in Munakata’s ideals and that he felt it was always his job to support him.  When Sakakura is ready to confess something, Munakata murders him.  When Sakakura asks, “Why?” Munakata replies, “You know why.”  As Munakata walks away he curses Despair for making him murder him.

Do you have any theories on what Sakakura wanted to tell Munakata?  Do you think Sakakura’s confession would have swayed Munakata from his goal which is why he murdered him? Or, do you think it was because Munakata knew that Ruruka was listening and wanted to silence Sakakura so she wouldn’t hear? Let me know  what you think in the comments!

The fourth time limit is approaching. Naegi, Asahina, Mitarai, and Kyoko are holed up in the same room together.  They catch up on what has happened and Kyoko reminds Naegi to never lose hope.  As the limit approaches Kyoko tells Naegi, “No matter what happens don’t give up on hope.  I shall always be by your side.”

The attacker murders Ruruka.

Kyoko dies from her forbidden action, “Passing the fourth time limit with Makoto Naegi alive.”

This was the most heart breaking thing ever! Even though she knew she was going to die, she still put all of her faith in Naegi.  It’s even more so heart wrenching because Kizukura sacrificed his life only for her to die anyway. Even more than that, she’s been there since the very beginning.  What are they going to do without the Ultimate Detective?

Munakata get’s on the broadcast and asks Naegi about Kyoko’s forbidden action.  Whose Hope is right?

I also want everyone to not that Munakata only knows everyone’s forbidden actions because he stole the “heart” from Gekkogahara.  He does not have this information on his own.

What do you think is coming up next? Who will win: Munakata or Naegi?  Do you think we will see the Remnants of Despair make an appearance?


One thought on “Danganronpa 3: Future Arc Episode 9”

  1. Holy moly! I was so upset after this episode ending! I knew what was coming, but I did not expect Kiriguri, one of the best characters in the series, to die. At all! 😭
    This was a great review! Keep it up with the good work!
