Why thank you, Mandako and/or Andrew!
Oh my god I played so many game demos today.
Ever since the long trailer came out a couple weeks back I’ve been thinking about writing a post on her but now I definitely am because of this little blurb from Aya Hirano, Monaka’s actor about her Character in Famitsu. (Possible slight spoilers? Also spoilers for the other games. You have been warned…..)
This is a very likely possibility, especially when you take into account that Junko herself was the big bad specifically because she represents a group of young women who tend to be ignored and not taken seriously.
Since the Dangan Ronpa franchise’s central theme is that people are always more nuanced and deep than they initially appear, it would make sense that someone young and physically disabled would be the perfect candidate to subvert expectations.
However, like with the sibling issue, it’s possible that SC knows we’re getting wise to this kind of thing and is setting Monaka up as a red-herring instead. Heavy hints like the one in the interview make me suspucious, given how careful the developers usually are in trying to avoid spoilers.
I may decorate my apartment like a 13 year old nerd, but something about Christmas lights and character goods just makes me feel so at home.
by far my favorite homestuck headcanon is that the beta kids met on club penguin
