If I had to make a choice, I'd name Sugiura ... but if I had to bet my life? Nope. Far too straight-forward IMO. Something's fishy.

Ohhh! My instincts were accurate. Sweet! :D. But darn ... I got a few other details wrong. :(

Sorry folks, SPOILERS AHEAD!

SPOILERS AHEAD

Let me think ... one of the group was intended to be the first to finish the game and another was instructed not to let anyone finish the game. It is *possible* that both these individuals knew of each other. With that understanding, I think it is likely that the Katsura was the one who was supposed to finish first and that her earlier request to the group to stop playing was, well, an attempt at giving herself more time. It feels likely that she has some way to tell how close people are to finishing the game. Which is why she showed up with the knife earlier.

But it was a shoddy murder attempt - she must have been aware that Sae was in the room when she tried the stabbing - even to give a verbal warning ... it feels likely that she hoped she would be stopped. So, there is something driving her to do all this (Monokuma's extra incentives, I suppose?), but maybe her morals prevent her from doing so?

The guy who ran into the room when the failed attempt happened. My instincts tell me he's involved somehow. But am not sure of the details.

Now I wish I had named XXXX (not spoiling it!) in my earlier review.

... actually, Hmm... yeah, I'd better not leave spoilers in these reviews. Sorry folks!

I'm going to take a stab at guessing the culprit.

The body discovery announcement coming up twice makes me think that Iwasawa, Miura and one of the victims are the initial witnesses. The second announcement came up after more people showed up. It is most likely that Yuuki was killed first - probably by stabbing. The killer then uses Yuuki's card to grab the gun and shoot Akasaka.

Why would there be a trash bag over her? Hmm... perhaps the killer was hiding nearby and used it to suffocate her? She might have entered the gallery, saw the gun was removed and walked towards it, not really comprehending why Yuuki would open the thing. Yuuki would be dead nearby - but before Akasaka could get her bearings, the killer pulled the bag over her head, captured her before shooting her.

That seems like it would kind-of fit with the body discovery announcements.

The paintings were switched around. Why? Not just that, but it is possible that one of the paintings was not where it originally was. I'm thinking that these are large paintings which a girl might not be able to easily switch. Not really a good argument, but its on my mind.

-sigh-

Can't figure it out at this stage. Oh well. Lets see how the trial goes ...

read this fic in print? surely you jest, author!

That was awesome, author! Bravo! I was playing music from Danganronpa 2 on another browser tab while reading this story and it just _fit_ the mood.

Excellent writing. Thank you for sharing this story/chapter with us!

Facinating! A most intriguing investigation chapter. I can't even being to guess who it might be. I have a few ideas on who aren't the culprit, but the actual murderer? No idea ... yet.

Thank you for this chapter author. It's a good read!

I have no idea what kind of clues you've left behind, but I'm happy that the plot is finally moving ahead.

Your writing is good. I had an easy time reading this chapter. Thank you, author!

A problem I have with original cast like this, is that it is hard to visualize a face with a name. Many times when I was reading this chapter, I would select a name, open the earlier chapter in another tab and search it out to determine what that student's ultimate talent is.

Looks like people are settling in. Nothing drastic has happened yet and I find myself looking forward to whatever will come next.

Your grammar and writing are nice. Thank you for this chapter, author!

Interesting. I was recommended to try out this story on TFF and, well it's too early to comment on the plot. But the writing is nice - no obvious grammar problems.

Reading on!

J Carp

I think that a romantic relationship between two girls would probably be the least of anyone's concerns, given how completely ruined the outside world has become. If anything, an interpersonal relationship developed over the course of a life-or-death battle royale can speak volumes of how well-founded it is. I personally found Miura and Edogawa's budding intimacy to be one of the few consistently inspiring things about this particular killing game.
