Prologue - ¡¿Is this Camp Despair?!
We meet our protagonist, Sumi Sukira, she about to start her first year in Hope's Peak Academy but when she first steps in the building, she loses consciousness and finds herself infront of class-like door. Afraid of being found unconscious by her classmates, she opens the door without a doubt.
Inside the door, she meets her 15 classmates but really doesn't speak to any of them since she is a shy person. But one thing everyone discussed was how they all had the same experience when they went unconscious. After a while of discussion, Usami, a magical white rabbit and Neko, a crazy blue cat, suddenly appeared and they claimed being the teacher and guide of the group, oficially beggining a field trip to a camp called Camp Arrequit.
The walls magically fell to become only dust and they were all in this park that was called Principal Park, they all decided exploring the camp to see what they could do there. Sumi was left alone this boy that caught her attention, she quickly befriended him, and learned he was called Kanashi Kanerui. They both decided to explore the camp together and meet the other students.
After that they were all brought together at Principal Park to receive an important announcement from Usami and Neko. They were told to go to this Campfire Area and prepare the welcome party for the night, but while they were at it, all the screens around the island showed the siluet of a stuffed-toy bear who told them to go to the Principal Park. The blue sky turned grey, and as the student went there they could already feel the despair.
That was the place where they met the black and white bear named Monokuma, he claimed being the headmaster of the camp and school, and claims that everyone should kill eachother to graduate and leave the camp. Usami and Neko attemped to fight him but failed and they were turned into Monomi and Mononeko.
The students had to accept their fate and combat the despair with hope. ¿Could they actually make it alive?
Chapter 1 - Maybe Fire Doesn't Burn
The next day after Monokuma arrived Sumi went to the leftover cottage, where they'd gather to have breakfast, and found herself listening to Asuka Aihara, who was categorazing everyone by the time they arrived at the cottage. A part of Asuka's system to prevent murder. Then was when everyone decided that Asuka should be the group's leader, since she felt responsable for them.
Later that same day, everyone was gathered at the Principal Park by Monokuma, just recieve they're motivation to kill. "If the killer manages to graduate, and leave Camp Despair, they'll be giften by me. I'll give them anything they want", that was their motive said with Monokuma's words. At first everyone acted like they didn't care about that motive and they'd never kill, but what they didn't know is that someone was already planning a murder in that same moment.
The next day Monomi and Mononeko announced that the Camp Fire Party wasn't cancelled, it was just moved due to Monokuma. The next night, everyone was there at the Campfire Party, except Kanashi that excuced his absence due to his allergy to smoke. Everyone was having fun: dancing, eating, singing, talking, etc. Until the forest, right next to the place they were having the party, was on fire. Everyone ran to the forest trying to turn off the fire, but it was useless, Monokuma had to come and extinguish the fire himself to save their little private party.
Everyone gathered back at the Campfire Area but they found something they weren't actually waiting for. The dead body of Asuka, their leader.
Who could've killed her? Everyone liked her, at least that was what they thought. The first kill, triggered by someone... non other than Asuka Aihara's Shunsuke Monomonoi, that later would be executed.
Chapter 2 - What Happens in Las Vegas, Stays in Las Vegas
The morning after the Class Trial was terrible, all 14 survivor were pouting, distressed and dissapointed, except one of them that was missing there at the leftover cottage, Maika Matsuda. She then later shows up with a big smile and great humor, everyone cuestioned her since her boyfriend died right infront of her. But she just let out some inspiring words about how she would be happy for Shunsuke and how she promised him to live happily.
Not long after that Monomi announced that she was able to destroy the gate preventing them from getting to the second area. In this area they found a nightclub, a restaurant, and pools. Monomi and Mononeko plan some fun group activities for them to clear their minds from all despair Monokuma was causing, they went to the pool and had lots of fun diving into the water, and they also had a sweet dinner at the restaurant all together.
And of course in the middle of all Monokuma gave the remaining students a new motive to kill. This time it was about their family's needs; money, food, service, whatever it was. Monokuma would give it to them, of course, after succesfully graduating.
Without actually caring someone plans a party event only for girls at the nightclub, it'd be a tribute to Asuka because of her passing away. But theblackened was already one step further, ther prepared fake notes and gave one to each party guest, cancelling the party. Only to leave the one who planned the party there, alone and without any protection. How would that end up?!
With a dead victim and the killer being executed.
Chapter 3 - Lights, Camera, Action!
The harmony comes back to the group for a while, at the first morning it was revealed Christopher had left a gift for everyone. The group agreed that the one who should uncover the gift should be Osuke Wamura, Christopher's closest friend. After seeing that the gift were five paintings (a portrait of Asuka, another of Shunsuke, another one of Ruka, and a last one from Christopher. The very last one was just... the whole group having fun), everyone was touched, Christopher knew he probably wouldn't get away with his plan.
Later that same day Monomi came to announce that she was able the break the other gate, preventing them to enter the third area. In this are they found a park with a playground, a gorgeous lake and forest with a path to explore, Monokuma mentions that in the forest the birds sing only when someone is lying so it can be considered a magical forest. After exploring the area Monomi tells everyone to get their bathing suit cause they're going to the lake. When everyone was prepared they just ran to the lake and started having fun.
The next day, Monokuma gathered everybody at the Principal Park to give them their new motivation to kill. This time he presented a new talking teddy bear, but instead of teddy bear... it's more like teddy fox. She was called Monosune and she was a Theatre Club Teacher, she just gave everyone a sheet of paper with their lines and made them act. She explained that everything in the sheet happened for real... in their past lives. Everyone confused doubted her but continued the play, but no one got really triggered with anything that happend.
The day after that incident, Monomi and Mononeko told everyone that after breakfast hey shall gather to the scavenger hunt at the forest. Everyone went but what they found wasn't a treasure, it was two bodies. One of Erika Tsuin and the other from her killer]], but who killed the killer?
In the Class Trial they'll have to find that out, who killed Erika's killer and why. If they do, the killer of the killer will be executed.
Chapter 4 - Unfortunate Olimpics
After the third trial, Monomi destroyed the gate that prevented the crew from getting to the fourth area. In that area all there was, was a sports club, a camping zone with carps and a fair. After exploring the whole area, Monomi and Mononeko announced that for some time, everyone will be staying in the carps, just for fun, but they were not allowed to go back to Cabin Area. They were all really enjoying their time at the camping zone, until one morning Monokuma gathered everyone at the Principal Park.
He had prepared a new motive for the group to start the killing again. If the blackened gets away with murderer, they may choose one of their classmates to graduate together. But why kill for that reason? No one really cared at the moment, but by the time Monokuma left, Monosune had something to tell the group. She was truly a mole by Monokuma's side, she really didn't work for him, her job is to gather as much information to help the group get out from the situation they were in. Some doubted what the fox had said, and others believed her, but no one could prove if what she said was true or not.
The next day, the whole despair inducing Monokuma game had been forgeten thanks to a new activitie planned by Monomi and Mononeko. A Mini-Olimpic sports competition at the Sprots Club, that would played in three groups of three. Sumi, Kanashi and Kisa Kaedo formed the team called "The Sukiras", since that was Sumi's last name it'd give them all good luck. But after loosing a voleyball match against "Lost Faces", Kisa would only cry and feel guilty because of it, he felt guilty for loosing.
At breakfast the next morning, Kisa had disappeared, there was no sign of him. The rest of the group went out looking for him but there was just nothing that could lead them to where he might be. Later that same day, a body discovery announcement was hear all around the camp, at the Sports Club, the hanging body of Kisa Kaedo was found.
Everyone rapidly assumed it was a suicide, but it didn't lasted long until the group discovered that the suicide was a fake set up by Hikari Hokotome. After confessing her love for Tokono Matsumura, they were both executed, but somehow... Tokono still had a chance to live, he had survived.
