Chiaki Nanami (七海 千秋 Nanami Chiaki) is one of the characters featured in Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak Academy - Side: Despair.
Chiaki has the title Ultimate Gamer (超高校級の「ゲーマー」chō kōkō kyū no “gēmā.”) enrolled in Hope's Peak Academy's Class 77th. She served as Class 77-B's class representative in the student council.
Chiaki has short, light pink hair which is slightly curled. She wears a white clip in the shape of the spaceship from Galaga to the side of her face and has pale pink eyes much like her AI counterpart.
Chiaki wears Hope's Peak Uniform with a red ribbon tied on her chest. She also wears black thigh highs and white shoes.
Chiaki is a calm and quiet individual. She can be a bit asocial, although she can be quite talkative when discussing games. Chiaki is quite analytical and enjoys learning new things and asks questions often. Chiaki seems to not be fully aware of her environment, seen when she bumped into Hajime Hinata while gaming. She concentrates really hard when playing a game, to the point where she almost never takes her eyes off one.
Chiaki doesn't think much of her talent. In fact, she seems to dislike it, believing that her love for gaming will not help her gain any friends. When her teacher tells her that she can make friends by playing her games with them, Chiaki opens up more to those around her, and starts taking part in group activities.
Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak Academy - Side: Despair
Chiaki is a character featured in Danganronpa 3 - Side: Despair. Chiaki appears to be a human and student of Hope's Peak Academy. It is possible that the AI version was based on her.
Episode 01 - Hello Again, Hope's Peak Academy
Chiaki accidentally bumped into Hajime in the park when she focused on her game. Chiaki continued to walk down the path until Hajime recognized that the game she was playing was Gala Omega. Surprised that someone knew an old and classic game like Gala Omega, she approached Hajime enthusiastically, saying that she never met anyone who played the game as much as her. She made Hajime promise to her to show his game.
When Chiaki and Hajime were discussing the game, her new homeroom teacher, Chisa Yukizome came to her along with the dragged Ultimate Imposter. Chisa recognized Hajime as a Reserve Course Student from his uniform and informed Chiaki about it as she didn't know what it was.
Chiaki disagreed with Hajime's view that justified talent is everything. She said that talent is not an end goal. The fact that Hajime is talentless gives him greater freedom than a person with talent. He can go anywhere and become anything, unlike her, being talented only when it comes to games. Soon after that, Chisa picked her up and Chiaki bid farewell to Hajime.
When Chiaki and the students once again bring up that they didn't have to go to class, so long as they have their talent, Chisa reminded them that talent isn't everything, and wanted them to build strong relationships and "hope" with each other.
Episode 02 - My Impurest Heart for You
During their time in Hope's Peak Academy, Chiaki spoke with and befriended Hajime. Chiaki has grown interest in him after he revealed that he played Gala Omega fifth times in a row before. To Hajime's surprise, he found Chiaki has been waiting for him to go to the game center together.
- “Either way, my gaming talent won't earn me any friends.”
- “You can make friends with games.”
- "When you're with everyone, games are fun!"
- Chiaki possessed a Nantendo Game Girl Advance, an obvious parody of Nintendo's Gameboy Advance. The name of the system's developer is likely a pun on the surname Nanami.
- Ironically enough, the game Chiaki played on it was Gala Omega, a direct parody of Galaga, a game implemented into her outfit, as her hairpin is the ship sprite from the game.
