Notes No BG
Notes are a type of collectible featured in Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls. Some more plot-related notes, when collected, will prompt a short conversation between Komaru Naegi and Toko Fukawa, and sometimes another character if they are with them such as Shirokuma or Taichi Fujisaki.

Background

As you progress with Komaru Naegi and Toko Fukawa through Towa City as part of the main objective of the game, you will stumble upon many notes and magazines left behind by the people of the city before and during its fall into chaos. These items, as well as other collectibles in the game, appear in the overworld as a small glittering object. As you find them and pick them up, the screen automatically goes on to display its contents. Collecting all 69 notes will award the player a trophy.

Something Terrible Is Happening
Note
Something Terrible is Happening...
よくない何かが起こっている...
It didn't take long before I realized it. I understood when I saw my coworker on the floor with his eyes ripped out. I understood it when I saw my boss with his intestines in his hands.

I realized that this is pure insanity. But even though I know this, I still can't convince myself that this is real. In only 1 day. You'd think the world couldn't possibly turn completely on its head. You wouldn't think that the friends you're laughing with one moment could all be dead in another. Whatever happened to the "world" I lived in and the "common sense" I had believed in? Something like this... for kids to go around killing adults...

That sort of thing isn't supposed to happen...

Monokuma crushed my leg
モノクマに脚を潰された
I don't think I can take another step. I know I can't take another step. I can't walk. Monokuma destroyed my leg and I can't move. They're still around here, looking for me. I'm probably going to die. They're going to find me and kill me.

But I can't keep thinking about that kind of thing. I have to think happy thoughts now. If I make it home alive, I want to go to the beach with my family. I want to see the sparkling water again. I want to sit on the sand with my wife and watch our beautiful daughter play. And if she trips and falls, and gets a scrape, I want to say, "There there, it's okay, sweetie."

No, I can't. I can't think about the future. I'm just going to die in a few minutes. I don't want to die. But I know I will. This is the worst feeling I have ever felt.

Towa City, of all places...
(選りによって塔和シティが)

It's not an exaggeration to say that my entire life up until now has been for the sake of Towa City. I admired Towa City's tech sector and dreamed of working in this town, and I've lived my whole life for that dream. And finally, finally my dream comes true, and this is what happens.

Why did it have to be here of all places? Why did it have to be now!? Is the world doing this out of spite!?

I was supposed to test my skills in this city, but instead I'm running for my life. I wish I could take it back. I want my dream back.

After everything...it just had to be here. Out of everywhere on Earth, it had to be Towa to end up like this.
Guide Project Toko DRAE (3)
You seem especially upset about it. Did you have some kind of reverence for this place?
Guide Project Taichi (1)
It's not quite that... Didn't I tell you? I used to work in security. Well I say security... What I did actually was architect security system programs. For someone like me, this place truly something special.
Guide Project Komaru (2)
Something special?
Guide Project Taichi (1)
Towa City leads the world's technology industry in both complexity and scale. There are tons of engineers out there who come to Towa City to test their skills.
Guide Project Toko DRAE (3)
You're right, I think I've heard that somewhere. I heard that the air purifier developed by Towa solved the toxic atmosphere problem.
Guide Project Taichi (1)
Also, Towa Group built advanced weaponry and shelters to fight against despair. So Towa City is special for that reason, too.
Guide Project Taichi (3)
But, that's something I just learned recently.
Guide Project Komaru (21)
If this city is so advanced, why isn't there a giant defense robot to fend off Monokumas?
Guide Project Taichi (3)
Um... I'm sure that any kind of weaponry was stolen or destroyed when all this first started.
Guide Project Komaru (21)
Then nothing's changed. We gotta contact Future Foundation, no matter what!

Future Foundation's Weapon
未来機関の武器
I found something interesting. It looks like a Monokuma has broken it, so it won't be of much use, but this seems to be a weapon designed by Future Foundation. It's some kind of bullhorn-shaped gun. Future Foundation always blabbered on about peace, but their weapon was crushed by a Monokuma in a second. Useless piece of junk now. Serves them right.

Future Foundation, the police... It was naive of me to rely on them. I don't know when, but I remember seeing an article about them. Future Foundation is connected with the Mastermind of that incident somehow. So no one will save me, nothing will save me. I'm at my wit's end.

Just like my other coworkers, I'm going to be killed. It's hopeless. I can't do anything to stop it. They are coming.

Children Know This Town Better Than I Thought
(子供は街の地理に詳しい)

I thought this place would be fine. I was confident that I would never be found. But, as if they knew where I was hiding from the beginning, a Monokuma came and attacked me.
I was just barely able to escape, but I couldn't save her... My wife was killed. She was torn apart, limb from limb. They cut off her skin, and her flesh was everywhere. But I just ran away. I'm done for. There's no place to hide, no place to run in this city.

It's true that your parents were cruel to you, but that doesn't mean you can kill all the adults!
Guide Project Nagisa (3)
Again with that nonsense, after all this? We are all well aware that we are killing Innocents.
Guide Project Nagisa (11)
This is war. When you're burning an enemy's country to the ground, do you stop to spare the "good" people? Even if we had years, we would never achieve our dream with that...benevolence.
Guide Project Komaru (3)
B-But...
Guide Project Nagisa (11)
Consider it fate. We were born and raised here. We were treated as if we weren't even human. Wouldn't it be a cruel twist of fate if we *didn't* fight back?
Guide Project Komaru (3)
But for you to just do them what they've done to you...
Guide Project Nagisa (11)
Perhaps you think we should have *stayed* sub-human? Just *accepted* it?
Guide Project Komaru (5)
N-No, not like that...

Then you tell me. What should we have done? What was the right thing to do? What should we have done to earn the privilege of a normal, happy childhood?

Oh stop being such a drama queen! You could of relied on the police! On the government!

You're asking those who had their lives destroyed by adults...to trust other adults.

Ever since we five were born in Towa City, our destiny was decided. No one can stop us. With all the children in this town, we will build an idea paradise.
Guide Project Toko DRAE (13)
With all the children in this town? You're talking about all those brats in the helmets?
Guide Project Nagisa (11)
Of course. It's not just us, but also the Monokuma Kids. All the children.
Guide Project Toko DRAE (12)
Funny that all the kids in this town just happen to have murderous intentions like you!
Guide Project Nagisa (2)
...Hmph, perhaps I've said too much. I have nothing else to say to you. You cannot stop us now.

P-Pretty bold for a shrimpy little brat like you to talk big! I don't care how unfortunate your childhoods were, killing humans will never be okay.

Thank you for everything you've done
今まで本当にありがとう
If you're reading this, it means I'm already dead. I am really, really grateful to you. When I was sad, or rotting away at work, you always supported me. If you weren't around, I couldn't even stand up straight. Because I was with you, my entire life up until now.... All the way until now, it felt like it meant something.

I'm grateful to you for supporting me without any complaints. But even so... Why? Why did you leave me behind? Why did you desert me in a place like this? Someone like me, who can't even stand on his own... Who can't even walk on his own...

Memoirs of Adult 1
(大人の手記1)

Shirokuma brought in 3 new people. I feel happy, but at the same time, scared. I wonder how many adults are killed above ground. How many of them got saved? How many bodies are lying there...?
Thanks to the newbies screaming, sleepless nights continue. From what I can tell, in his dream, his friend gets killed by kids, and he screams out. I can kind of understand how he feels. I can't blame him.


The newbie finally broke. Even though he's a grown adult, he ended up acting like a newborn baby... He lost against his nightmares. To the kids. Looking at the scenery forces me to realize that even though I'm here, I couldn't run. Every time a newbie is brought in, my despair increases. I can't even run, nor forget... The children will kill us all.

The victims and the missing are divided into two lists... They're both pretty long...
Guide Project Toko DRAE (6)
I-It's not even murder at this point... This is war.
Guide Project Shirokuma (1)
The kids call it "revolution."
Guide Project Komaru (6)
That's just semantics!
Guide Project Shirokuma (3)
Exactly. Call it whatever name you please, in the end, there's still a mount of bodies. But by calling it a revolution, they justify it in their minds, and become even more brutal.
Guide Project Toko DRAE (3)
By how you're talking, you seem to know these brats pretty well.
Guide Project Shirokuma (1)
You're talking about the Warriors of Hope who lead the "Monokuma Kids", right? From what I know, they were apparently students of an elementary school affiliated with Hope's Peak.
Guide Project Toko DRAE (10)
Hope's Peak Academy!? Why would that name come up now?
Guide Project Komaru (2)
What about it? Did something happen before?
Guide Project Toko DRAE (6)
Not just "something"... But forget about it for now. It's a very long story.
Guide Project Toko DRAE (15)
But more on the subject, I never expected the academy to also have an elementary...
Guide Project Shirokuma (1)
They're not technically affiliated. Attending Hope's Peak Academy still requires scouting. But the elementary was still prestigious. Many Hope's Peak Academy students came from there. The elementary students the talents of children. Only child prodigies could attend.
Guide Project Toko DRAE (2)
And how exactly are they prodigies? They're just a bunch of mental brats.
Guide Project Shirokuma (3)
I guess that just shows having a great mind does not always make person. Or a child. A child's talent can easily be corrupted into something evil. Those five are the worst examples. Actually, the Warriors of Hope were all in the classroom with the "trouble" children.
Guide Project Toko DRAE (2)
Troublemakers, huh? Just as I thought, they were all deviants from the start.
Guide Project Shirokuma (7)
You remember what you were like when you were children? How many cruel things you did? Insane because they're too pure. Uncontrollable because they're too innocent. Children with more potential than adults, with such cruel natures... How horrifying it would be if they were truly out of control. Towa City is an example of that.
Guide Project Komaru (5)

Y-You think it's fun to threaten us?

About the Children at Night
夜の子供達について
There's only one thing I could tell for sure after taking the night shift as lookout. The children are all wearing those idiotic helmets. None of them look like they're sleeping. And I've never seen them eat, either.

Are they really human children? Isn't it possible that they're just mechanical dolls, like Monokumas? Well, regardless... Whether they're humans or robots, they're devils in our eyes. The only difference is what liquid they bleed when we run them over.

I'm only 16. I don't want to die.
16歳なのに死にたくない
I don't get it, I don't want to die... I mean, I'm just 16, you know? I didn't even confess my feelings to Taka, and I haven't seen Grandpa in like 2 years, and there's still a lot of things I want to do. There's still a lot of people I want to see before I die... No, I mean...

Those reasons shouldn't even matter. I don't want to die because I don't want to die. And it's obvious that everyone and my family feels the same way. But they died. They got killed. They got killed without a single pause, like it was automatic, like it was nothing. I want revenge. I want to do to them everything they did to my family. I want to kill all those damn children like it was nothing.

But I can't do that. I can't do anything... The only thing I can do is just hide. I'm so ashamed... I can't even avenge my family. I'm just a coward. I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry. I'm sorry that I survived. I should have been the first to die.

I was so glad to meet you
お前に会えて本当に良かった
To tell you the truth, I didn't know what to do when you were born. At the time, me and your mom were just students, and I'm sorry to admit it but we had arguments over whether or not to have you. In the end we decided to get married just before you were born. And maybe we regretted it a little at first, maybe we were kidding ourselves. But we worked through it. Even while other people our age were playing around and studying, I don't mind going to work for 12 hour shifts, because it was to provide for you and your mom. And I Know Mom doesn't like to think that, because as you know, her favorite thing to say is "Life's not about winning or losing!" But when I'm with you, I feel like I'm winning. I feel like I'm defeating the old me, the me who didn't want to have you, and what his life must be like right now.

So to put it simply, I'm so happy I got to meet you. But when you put that helmet on and controlled those Monokumas that killed your own mother, I'm sorry but all I feel for you is hatred. But even then, I would never think about killing you. But... How do I say it...? What was the last few years like for you? What did that all mean to you? Did you not think anything of your own mother or father? Or is this just not the real you, and this is just some bad dream? It's such a strange feeling to think that, if I am going to die, I at least want my own daughter to do it. I don't know.

I want to choose suicide.
(ひと思いに自死を選びたい)

This entire land is no good anymore. No matter where I hide, the Monokumas will find me sooner or later. I made it into the underground but it's not like this place is going to be safe forever. I remember the bodies. All of them stacked up like debris. I remember them at random times, out of nowhere, I see their faces. Will I join them soon?
If I'm going to be killed like that, I think I would rather just commit suicide. Just end it. But I'm too scared to choose suicide. I'm scared of dying and then meeting my friends in the afterlife, the ones who wanted to live so badly. I feel like suicide would be betraying them. There's no way I can do that.

My Beloved Son
最愛の息子
I sent my son off to school this morning, and he came home this afternoon wearing some kind of helmet I couldn't figure out. I thought it was some kind of joke. When I asked him about it, a Monokuma showed up of nowhere and attacked me. I dodged the attack by a hair, picked up my son, and brought him here to hide. On the way, I discovered several things.

It's not just my son. The children throughout the town are all wearing them, and they're killing the adults with Monokumas. It's as if my son changed into a completely different person. He just gives me a creepy laugh. I'm not even sure he recognizes me. I can tell he's planning to kill me.

I remember the time I struck my son. Just once.

But I love my son. I'm sure my son knows it. There's no way he would kill his own mother.

Getting old means you're getting close to being completely worn out. But Demons keep saying things like you should respect your elders? Like being older makes you superior?

I feel like they're causing their own downfall. If they're old and worn out, they should act like it and bow down to the sparkly new youth. And if that happened, we wouldn't have to do this paradise plan. Well, actually, we still would!

No matter how cute cockroach-chan looks bowing down, you gotta kill them. It's super obvious they're harmful, but even if they weren't they still deserve to be killed. It's instinct! It's put into our hearts and brains! Like the same way we think poopoo and weewees are funny, right?

We won't try to fool you with fancy words or say something you don't understand. Let's just be happy as kids. That's it. The Demons aren't needed because they're selfish and treat children like they own us, like we're just things to them. They think we do not have feelings. They lack imagination.

We don't need them, so we're going to kill them. The paradise we build will be awesome. No parents. No chores. No school. No homework. There will be a few rules, but that's it. Respect one another. Be so good that you will become a role model for others. When you feel that you are becoming a Demon, kill yourself. Follow the rules and help build a paradise of only children.

Ehehe! Ehehehehehehe! The faces the Demons make when I'm hunting them is seriously always the best. The very top of warmed milk is always gooey. When a Demon is up against a wall they always clench their teeth or open their lips slowly. But in the end, when I kill them, they always open their lips and shudder like crazy.

Anyways, the sound of the bell that rings when you enter a store is so cute sounding, right? People who make those things must have a bad personality. People who make pretty or cute things have bad attitudes. On the other hand, I don't make pretty things, I make horrible dioramas, but my face and my personality is horrible too! Am I the only one whose tummy hurts when they smell rice from a rice cooker?

I always knew it, it's always the best to attack from both sides when hunting Demons. That way, even if they go left or right or go back, they always end up getting killed. The moment just when they all fall into despair and know they are going to die is really, always, splendid.

Like, their bodies are bigger for no reason! They're not even filled with adorbs thing inside! It's like an egg that has nothing inside! Empty Dumpty! I should kill them all just for that.

Speaking of eggs, there are two ways to write "egg" in Japanese, but you can use the words in different ways. The first "egg" means shelter from where life is born. The other "egg" means a cooking ingredient. Woo hoo! Isn't trivia just so adorbs!?

新月渚の手記
I know I should stop thinking about it, but it crosses my mind when I least expect it. Are we, the "Warriors of Hope," truly in the right? I tell myself that we are right and just every time, but sometimes I fail to convince myself. Do I not really want this? When was the last time I truly felt guilt? Or remorse?

Obviously, we were treated horribly. The worst of the worst. But even so, I feel that I am in debt to my parents for raising me. I hate it, but I can't stop feeling that, no matter how they treated me, I still owe them affection and respect. It's a heavy feeling in my chest.

Something I can never tell Masaru, Jataro , Kotoko, or even Monaca. I need to stop thinking about things like this. I, we, have a revolution to think about now. A paradise to build. For us, and for all the children of this town. I need to save Monaca. It's her I need to think about. She is much more precious to me than my own life.

Something Terrible Is Happening

That Useless Shitty Brat
使えねえクソガキ
I ordered my son to go buy alcohol. I even GAVE HIM THE MONEY. He comes back home EMPTYHANDED. He said something about not having ID or something, whatever. Who cares? I trained the boy. I made him go do it one more time, and he comes back with alcohol. The next day, the cops show up. Apparently the little shit STOLE IT! The brat HUMILIATED me. But I trained him good as soon as the cops left.

I hate my son's face when I'm teaching him a lesson. The smile he forces so that I'll stop hitting him creeps me out. He can't just cry or yell like a regular kid? Shit, I got myself a defective product.

I Shouldn't Have Had Him
産むんじゃなかった
There's so much I can do if my son didn't exist. So much I could have done if I never had him. I could have obtained qualifications and licenses, taken lessons, worked more.

Instead, my entire life is just a platform for my son's life. I think about it every night before I go to sleep. If I woke up in the morning and my son was dead, how splendid would that be?

But every time I wake up and see him, I sigh. Why are you still alive? Why do you have a normal life? I yearn for the day he stops being healthy and stops growing and just disappears. That's all I want. Why can't you just do something that simple for me?

I want him to die so badly it makes me cry. And the fact that he has such a worthless face just makes me even more sad. It makes me think I'm the one who's wrong. I shouldn't have had you.

Ehehe! If that's the case, it's simple! If I don't want to be sad, all I have to do is change the peaceful place. I just have to believe that being hated makes me at peace. If I can do that, even when she tells me to die, I will alllllways be at peace! I've heard that there will be clear weather after a typhoon, but I don't think they were talking about families.

The more Mommy hates me, the better it makes me feel. Now I can stay by Mommy's side forever! At peace!

For the sake of my daughter
娘のため
Her thing is worth like 8 times more than mine. Younger women. Thing is, poor bitch doesn't understand that she's worth more the younger she is. If you're looking for cost-effectiveness, you gotta sell it when you're still young. But it's a waste of time telling a 10 year old any of that, I guess.

That's why mommy has to sell it for you. I'll sell it with you, as a set. Even if you cry and say it hurts, or it's too scary, the men still pay. Sometimes, they even pay more. Even tears have value. Being young is a horrifying thing.

It's not like I want money. It's not like I want to entrust my dream to my daughter. It's not like I'm a pervert. I do this, all of this, for the love of my child. I do it for her sake, so she can sparkle forever. No matter how much she hates me, or how much society will beat me up for it, I know my actions are right. It's the parent's job to shine the spotlight on their child.

What Makes Me Cry The Most
1番哀しいこと
Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, a peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked. There are tons of reasons tongue twisters are hard to say, but I think a lot of it comes from having to suddenly start another consonant sound. Humans are weak to sudden changes.

I dislike sudden things, too. Old men just suddenly start talking about it. Mommy suddenly starts crying. Just thinking about it makes my tummy squeeze... Why do I have to feel like this? I'm fine with normal. I don't need to sparkle.

Mommy tells me it's too late once you're old. Mommy says youth isn't "eternal." But I didn't even want to start. Youth might not be eternal, but I'm sure knowledge is. But I cannot say that to Mommy. If I say something like that, Mommy would cry. Even though it hurts, and it's scary, and it makes me sad when the old men are gentle to me... Making Mommy cry hurts more. So I might as well just be gentle all the time.

If I just hold in a little pain and fear and sadness, Mommy doesn't have to cry a single tear.

Why am I me? Why wasn't I just born better? Why am I not the child Father wanted?

But excuses aren't going to help me now. Only hopeless idiots fritter away their lives with self-hatred. I don't have time. I need to work even harder. I need to live up to Father's expectations. It doesn't matter how high they are. I don't want to disappoint him. Never again.

The Founding of Towa City
塔和シティの成り立ち
The predecessor to the corporation Towa Group was a small factory called "Towa Ironworks," which first opened its doors 200 years ago. Tokushige Towa, who became the 1st chairman of Towa Group, established Towa Ironworks entirely by himself. Because iron manufacturing was a new, blossoming industry, Towa Ironworks soon dominated 70% of the market.

But Tokushige Towa was not yet satisfied. He also had a hand in other business ventures, such as bamboo forests and foreign trade, and continued to show his strong will and brilliant business sense. Incredibly, from age 30 to his death at 64, he established a new business once every 20 days. Tokushige's wife, Tomoko Towa, had this to say about her husband: "When I asked him why he always pushes himself, he would always say that 'it's for the sake of the prosperity of mankind.'"

Without Tokushige Towa's unflagging devotion to the advancement of mankind, neither Towa Group nor Towa City would exist today.

Though "The Biggest, Most Awful, Most Tragic Event in Human History" entrapped the entire world in despair, Towa City stood strong.

It is often argued that the technical strength Towa Group prides itself on was a huge deterrent to the spread of despair. The Mastermind behind the incident must have assumed that Towa City's technological superiority would be too much to defeat. Experts say that the influence of Towa Group is now so strong, it could even be a deterrent against global warfare.

Far and away the greatest gift Towa Group had given to the world was the invention of the air purifier that allowed massive quantities of atmosphere to be breathable again. Potentially millions of lives have been saved with this invention. Many Towa Group supporters have a nearly religious devotion to the company, thanks to their efforts against the incident.

The Tragedy Was A Future Foundation Conspiracy
あの事件は未来機関の自作自演
Although Future Foundation's stated mission to help the world recover from "The Tragedy," our editorial department has received a tip that claims Future Foundation themselves caused the incident in the first place. To no one at this publication's surprise, the "true Ultimate Despair" is at the top of Future Foundation.

The true Ultimate Despair's grand ambition was to reduce the world to a state of total despair. By inventing an opponent, they significantly complicated the situation to further plunge the world into despair. This "opponent" is Future Foundation. That organization was intentionally built to be dysfunctional and try to combat the despair with increasingly drastic measures. The reason why it took so long for the incident to settle down was because Future Foundation was protecting the "despair." There can be no other explanation. Consider this: the ones who developed the air purifier was not Future Foundation, but Towa Group.

Isn't it strange to think that Future Foundation, on whom the fate of the world relies, are technologically inferior to a single company?
