Part 45: Sir Mix-a-Lot

MUSIC: Rise and Shine, Ursine!


MUSIC: Heartless Journey

As I lay in my bed, Ryoma's words came back to me...

Reason to live...

When I really think about it... what do I have? I want to see my family and friends again...but is that a reason to live?

I it was for Kaede...

I'm sure she had plenty of reasons to live... That's the kind of girl she was. But I— Why am I thinking about this!? I shouldn't be...thinking this stuff... I know I need to stop thinking that way, but when I'm alone...I can't help it...



MONOTARO: Is he...sleeping?

MONOPHANIE: Yeah, he's sleeping. He's out light a like.

MONOTARO: You mean...out like a light.

MONOSUKE: Who cares? Just hurry up and leave the present so we can get outta here.

MONOTARO: D-Don't rush me... Geez, it's dark in here... I can't tell which is which...

MUSIC: Mr. Monokuma's Lesson V3

Are you examinees out there working hard!? When studying, focus is the most important! Boost your focus by throwing away all those comic books and video games! Oh, but Spike Chunsoft games are fine. They're specially made to improve your focus. And burn those pictures of your girlfriend! You don't have time to indulge in good memories! But make sure you don't burn your actual girlfriend, cuz you'll go to prison for that! Prison might help you focus, but then you wouldn't be able to go to your exams! If you can't focus at all, it's also good to confine yourself somewhere and study! I recommend confining yourself in an enemy's base! The thrill of studying in a place where you might get caught does wonders for your focus! Oh, and I also recommend studying in a disaster zone. The thrill of studying in a place where you could actually die does wonders for your focus. Oh, and I also recommend studying in the middle of your exams. The thrill of knowing it's too late to get any studying done does wonders for your focus. With my advice, you'll beat the competition! So get out there and do your best!

Day 7.

MUSIC: Rise and Shine, Ursine!


Wonderful announcement, Monodam. I can't believe this is your first time.

This isn't really your first time, is it? Hey, is this really your first time?

Guest-starring the Felurian as Monotaro.

TH...THIS-IS-MY-FIRST-TIME...'re blushing. How cute.

Anyway, we dropped off some presents in your rooms. Cower in fear! Cuz hell starts here!

MUSIC: Nightmare in the Locker

That wasn't on the table before I went to sleep...

No screwing around here.

...Kubs Pad?

When I touched the screen, the device came to life and started playing a video.

MUSIC: Rise of the Ultimates

AUDIO: Kaito's Motive Video

MONOKUMA: Who's the most important person in *your* life? And now, without further ado...

MONOKUMA: Kaito Momota, the Ultimate Astronaut... Thanks to his exceptional talent, this young man is already an astronaut trainee! Wow! Our team has managed to score an exclusive interview with his grandparents. They miss their grandson terribly, and hope he returns to them safe and sound. But don't just take my word for it! Let's hear it straight from the source!

No matter what happens, you must live. You must *never* give up. on. For our sakes, too.

MONOKUMA: Their only for Kaito to live. Will Kaito be able to fulfill his grandparents' wish? Ah, yes... One more thing... Shortly after this interview wrapped, these old farts suffered an unfortunate accident...

MUSIC: Wonderful Story

A motive video... Could this be another one of Monokuma's motives? Even if it were... why do I have Kaito's motive?



In that case, he must be at the dining hall. I'll try there.

You were?

Everyone is gathering in the dining hall. Please come right away. I'll go get everyone else.

I should go to the dining hall! Kaito must be there!

MUSIC: Rise of the Ultimates

Hey, has anyone seen Kaito!?

You're not the only one who got one, Shuichi.

We all did.

We have all been given "motive videos". However, they have been mixed up.

When I woke up, there was a Kubs Pad in my room, but the video on it wasn't even mine—

Oh, sorry... You're right.

What do you mean, once everyone is here?

Kaito and Keebo went to gather everyone else so that we may discuss our plans.

Shall we wait for everyone then? Until then, I can provide you all with massages—

My word...and after I was about to finally experience one of Kirumi's famed massages...

Wh-What do you mean? Are you also suggesting that I cannot read the air?

So what is it? Why did you drag us here?

Monokuma gave us a new motive. We can't *not* talk about it.

That thing that looks like another Monopad? That was a motive?

Maki, haven't you watched the video on the Kubs Pad yet!?

That's actually really courageous in a weird sort of way...

You don't have to speak up, but this is important, so you should at least listen.

So, what are these videos?

Y-Yeah! Why Gonta get Tsumugi's video—


Aah...I heard it... I see... So Gonta has my video...

...Huh? Gonta not supposed to say it?

What? We can't?

Why not? They're videos of the most important people in our lives.

And that is precisely why we cannot exchange them.

Although we do not know why our motives were mixed up... As long as we don't exchange them, we don't have to see our motives at all.

Yes. At least, that is what I think.

Th-That's true... If we ignore them, then we won't have a motive...

Huh? Against it? Why? If you see that video, it'll turn into a motive, right?

That's why I want to see it.

You do?

It might not matter to you whether you get killed or not, but...

Wake up already! You're like some zombie wandering around with no will to live!

No will to live, huh? Hmph, if that's how you see me, then so be it.

But I've got no plans to change my opinion. That's just not cool.

Wh-What did you say!?

Are you...trying to cause trouble again?

Don't get the wrong idea. I'm not saying we shouldn't care about killing or dying...

But I think it'd be better if we didn't cooperate with each other...

We shouldn't cooperate? Why not!?

Think back to all of Monokuma's actions so far. Whenever we tried to work together, Monokuma would retaliate with a plan to make us suffer. It happened when Kaede wanted us to cooperate, and again with these motive videos, right?

MUSIC: Nightmare in the Locker

You are saying that if we do not rally together, we will not be made to suffer?

That's why I had no choice but to screw with you guys. But you ingrates didn't even notice.

And you're not lying to us right now?

...Whether I'm lying or not, what I'm saying is still true.

So, I agree with Ryoma's suggestion.


It's *because* we're trying to cooperate that Monokuma is making us suffer...? But what about... everything we went through...? What was the point of Kaede sacrificing herself...?

Let's just exchange our motive videos instead of cooperating with each other.

...I cannot comprehend that logic.

Well, now that I've said I won't cooperate, I can't afford to be seen with you losers...

What? Gonta, too!?

We promised to think of a way to get everyone to exchange their motive videos, remember?

Anyway, Kirumi, I'll hit you up later when I'm feeling hungry.

Kokichi leaves.

Gonta leaves.

Quit screwing around... "Our sake"? Yeah, right. I've had it with his lies.

So are we all done here? Then I'm leaving.

Kirumi, bring me my dinner later.

Maki leaves.

Wait up, Ryoma! Don't forget. We're all struggling to get out of here alive.

I've got no intention of getting in your way. I'd never do something so uncool.

Kirumi, could I get you to clean my room later?

Ryoma leaves.

I do not mind... Serving others is the true desire of any maid.

You shouldn't spoil people, though! Especially degenerate males!

Kehehe... How, I wonder, will this turn out...? I will observe with great interest...

Oh, and Kirumi, I shall have you record my observations. I trust you to do it properly.

Kiyo leaves.

Guess I'll go back, take a shit, and get some sleep! Kirumi, think of an invention for me, okay!?

Miu leaves.

My workload has increased significantly... This calls for a more tactical approach.


...Wait, what's wrong, Himiko? Are you hungry?'re giving her more work...


What's the matter, Himiko? You don't like tripe hot pot?

I know, cuz I have the almighty Atua.

Whatever! Let's just enjoy some tripe hot pot!

Geez, you're so careless, Tenko.

We also promised not to show each other the motives.


Anyway... It seems like everyone wants to do their own thing...

What can we do to work better together as a group?

I wish I could do something on my own, but that's impossible...

If I screw up, it'll be just like Kaede all over again—

I can't stand around doing nothing! I...promised her!

It's already that time again! Next time, we'll see if we can fit into Kokichi's busy schedule.
