DR2 Hope Fragment (1)Introduction (Page 1)

???
Guide Project Komaeda 22
So, how are you feeling? Are you calmed down now?
Um...I understand your confusion after everything that's happened...
But, why don't we start with an introduction?
Guide Project Hajime 01
Introduction...?
Guide Project Komaeda 25
...I'm Nagito Komaeda. Nice to meet you.
Ah, along with my introduction...
I guess I'll also tell you about my talent so you know why Hope's Peak Academy chose me.
Guide Project Komaeda 11
Well, even if I tell you, in my case, it's a pretty disappointing talent...
Guide Project Hajime 03
A disappointing talent...? What do you mean?
Guide Project Komaeda 25
I'm lucky.
Guide Project Hajime 03
...What are you talking about?
Guide Project Komaeda 17
It's not a joke or anything... That's my actual talent.
I'm the Ultimate Lucky Student... At least, that's what I'm called anyway.
Guide Project Hajime 03
Ultimate Lucky Student?
Guide Project Komaeda 25
Through a country-wide lottery, apparently only one ordinary student is selected at random to attend...
...Hope's Peak Academy as the Ultimate Lucky Student.
And that lucky winner just so happened to be me.
Guide Project Hajime 02
Chosen by a lottery... Is that really okay?
I mean...is luck even a real talent in the first place?
...How strange.
Guide Project Komaeda 26
Your face looks...troubled.
Guide Project Hajime 23
Oh, no...I'm not troubled or anything.
Guide Project Komaeda 17
No, it's fine. I have mixed feelings about this, too.
Guide Project Komaeda 19
I never thought an average, talentless high school student like me would ever enter Hope's Peak Academy...
At first...I declined. I told them I didn't deserve it. But they told me they really wanted me to attend...
Apparently this so-called luck of mine is a talent that even the school doesn't fully understand...
To research it, the school picks the Ultimate Lucky Student every year through an annual lottery.
Guide Project Komaeda 25
Hope's Peak Academy is amazing if they can actually research something as vague as "luck".
Well, thanks to that luck, a guy like me was able to attend Hope's Peak Academy, so for that I'm grateful...
Guide Project Komaeda 19
But on the other hand...I feel a little out of place here.
Guide Project Komaeda 17
Ah, sorry. I have a bad habit of viewing most things through a pessimistic lens.
Guide Project Komaeda 25
Um, yeah, I guess that's it for my introduction.
Guide Project Hajime 02
Hmm... Nagito Komaeda, huh...
He doesn't seem like the most reliable guy, but he doesn't strike me as a bad person either.
Guide Project Komaeda 26
Now then, it's your turn.
Guide Project Hajime 17
Yeah...I'm Hajime Hinata.
Guide Project Komaeda 24
Then, let me ask you a question: what is your Ultimate talent?
Guide Project Hajime 03
Um, I...
I...I...
I opened my mouth but the words would not form. I felt my thoughts stalling in my head.
Guide Project Hajime 04
As if I opened a book expecting to find words, and instead found blank pages.
...It was that kind of uncomfortable feeling.
The memory I was trying to recall had completely vanished from my mind.
H...uh...?
Guide Project Hajime 08
Without realizing it, my body began to shudder as waves of discomfort began pounding against me...
Guide Project Komaeda 14
Hajime... What happened?
Guide Project Hajime 04
Ah... It's nothing...!
I guess...I'm still pretty confused about all this... I'm having trouble remembering some things...
Guide Project Komaeda 22
...
I understand how your memory might be confused after suddenly getting into a situation like this...
Guide Project Komaeda 25
I'm sure you'll remember soon once you've settled down.
So...I don't think you need to worry about it all that much.
Guide Project Hajime 21
You're...right...
Guide Project Komaeda 26
Then, I guess we're done with our introductions for now.
Even though I don't know what's going on... I hope we can get along.
Obtained Hope Fragment.

Guide Project Komaeda 14
Hajime...are you feeling sick?
Guide Project Hajime 03
Huh? No, not at all.
Guide Project Komaeda 25
I see...then it's okay. I thought you looked pale or something.
I thought something was worrying you... Ah, but it'd be weird if you weren't worrying in a situation like this.
Guide Project Hajime 17
Nagito is laughing in a carefree way.
But seeing him laugh like that was enough to distract me from my worries.
Guide Project Komaeda 14
Wh-What? Is something wrong?
Guide Project Hajime 17
No...how should I put it? I was just thinking about all the ways you've been helping me so far.
Th-Thank you...
Guide Project Komaeda 17
No...I haven't done anything to receive your thanks.
But...for someone like me to be useful to you, and to even receive your words of gratitude...makes me happy.
Guide Project Hajime 01
You're being too hard on yourself.
Guide Project Komaeda 25
I mean...my talent is just having good luck.
It's not like it comes from hard work, and it's not like I can use it to do anything amazing.
Regardless of how lucky I am, or if that luck even exists, I'm just too unimpressive to truly matter.
Haha, unlike you guys.
Guide Project Hajime 03
Why do you sound so happy about that?
It's possible that my talent might be more meaningless than yours, you know?
I mean...I can't even remember what it is.
Guide Project Komaeda 21
That's not true! I'm sure you have an amazing talent!
I mean...if you didn't, you wouldn't have been accepted into Hope's Peak Academy.
Guide Project Hajime 02
Somehow...when I see the way Nagito doesn't doubt me at all, I start to believe he's right.
He really does help me in so many ways...
Guide Project Komaeda 25
I know. If you'd like, let me help you remember.
Let's see...a talent that suits Hajime...
Guide Project Komaeda 23
What about the Ultimate Serenity?
Guide Project Hajime 03
Which part of me did you look at to come up with a title like that...?
Is that even a useful ability?
Guide Project Komaeda 24
Hmm, I'm pretty sure the ability to bring serenity to others just by being there is really amazing...
Let's see...
Guide Project Komaeda 25
What about the Ultimate Clumsy Student?
Guide Project Hajime 02
Well, considering that I suddenly forgot what my talent was, that might be fairly accurate...
Guide Project Komaeda 24
Then...what about the Ultimate Scatterbrain?
Guide Project Hajime 11
Don't go that far... I don't want an Ultimate talent like that...
Guide Project Komaeda 17
Hey, don't take it seriously. It was just a little joke! Hmmm, then...
Guide Project Komaeda 25
How about the Ultimate Spiky Hair?
Guide Project Hajime 09
That's not an ability at all!
Guide Project Komaeda 25
I know, right? Hahaha!
Guide Project Komaeda 07
But it's going to be fine... I'm positive you have a talent that's brimming with hope.
Guide Project Hajime 23
Jeez...he's totally messing with me...
Guide Project Hajime 02
But...thanks to him, my feelings are lighter than they ever were.
Could it be...? Was that his goal all along?
If so...maybe he's a good person after all.
Guide Project Hajime 17
Well, I guess it's too early to say. I need to get to know him better from now on.
I hope we get to understand each other better, even if it's just a little bit at a time...

DR2 Hope Fragment (3)Free Time Event 2 (Page 3)

Invite Nagito to hang out
Guide Project Hajime 04
... To be honest, I don't even know why I thought about talking to him.
But I felt like the more I left him alone...the bigger my worries would start to grow.
Guide Project Komaeda 25
You have a scary look on your face. You don't have to be so cautious, you know. I won't do anything.
Guide Project Hajime 19
As he said that, he smiled at me.
Why is this guy...?
No...thinking about it is a waste of time.
Guide Project Komaeda 19
Ah...are you thinking about doing something to me?
That's wonderful. I'm totally up for it. I don't mind at all.
Guide Project Hajime 13
Don't mess with me!
I...I'll never go along with your plans.
Guide Project Komaeda 17
That's a problem.
I don't want you guys to lose sight of yourselves because you doubt and hate me.
Guide Project Komaeda 12
I just...want to see you guys embody hope!
Guide Project Hajime 21
There it is again...
What in the world is this hope you keep talking about...?
What are you planning to make us do...?
Guide Project Komaeda 13
...
Oh...why am I so misunderstood?
I just want to believe in hope, you know?
Guide Project Komaeda 25
You should think about it seriously for once. What do you think hope is?
Guide Project Hajime 03
He's right...I've never actually given it much thought...
Guide Project Hajime 02 Hope... For him, hope is...
It's the opposite of despair
Guide Project Hajime 02 Hope is...the opposite of despair, right?
Guide Project Komaeda 18
Of course not! Despair isn't something as grand as hope!
Despair...is so small and inconsequential, just like me when I'm around you guys!
Guide Project Hajime 03 If that's not it...
It's something that's not here
Guide Project Hajime 02 Hope is something that's not here, right?
Guide Project Komaeda 13
I've been saying that hope exists on this very island. Why won't you believe me...?
Guide Project Hajime 04 He's right... He's been saying that for a while now...
Hope is absolutely good
Guide Project Hajime 02
Hope is...absolutely good?
Guide Project Komaeda 06
That's right! That's exactly it!
And you guys have the potential to embody it...
Do you understand? Hope is a positive force...
Everything created by it is an absolute good!
Guide Project Komaeda 12
As long as the seeds of hope have been planted, I will gladly kill someone...or be killed in return.
The fact that I'm alive right now is already hope!
Guide Project Hajime 06
It's no use...I definitely don't understand what he's talking about at all.
But even so, all I can say is...
Guide Project Hajime 19
It doesn't seem he's trying to trick or trap anyone for the sake of his selfish desires.
That's why...this is especially troubling.
Guide Project Komaeda 25
Huh? Are we done talking, Hajime?
That's disappointing...but we can still talk anytime, right?
Guide Project Komaeda 06
After all, we're both friends who yearn for hope!

DR2 Hope Fragment (4) Free Time Event 3 (Page 4)

Invite Nagito to hang out
Guide Project Hajime 01
That reminds me...your talent is being the Ultimate Lucky Student, right?
Guide Project Komaeda 16
I happen to think it's extremely boring.
Guide Project Hajime 16
For someone who's lucky, you still got dragged into this mess. Doesn't that seem ironic to you?
Guide Project Komaeda 17
Not at all! This is simply the beginning of hope!
Guide Project Hajime 03
Huh?
Guide Project Komaeda 24
I was born with a unique type of hope.
This current situation...is foreshadowing the Ultimate Luck that will be arriving afterward.
Guide Project Hajime 10
...What do you mean?
Guide Project Komaeda 23
If everything that's happening now seems like bad luck, it's all going to result in good luck in the end.
As long as I exist, that will definitely happen.
Guide Project Komaeda 06
So...I can't help feeling excited for what's going to happen.
Seeing my beloved embodiments of hope trapped on this island and forced to kill each other so pathetically...
Guide Project Komaeda 12
It's all just a preparation for the good luck that will arrive in the end... I'm going mad from excitement!
Guide Project Hajime 04
...
Guide Project Komaeda 14
Huh...? You look confused.
Guide Project Hajime 11
Isn't that obvious...?
He thinks the bad luck happening right now is just a preparation for good luck? What's wrong with him...?
Guide Project Komaeda 25
Then...allow me to give you an example.
Let's say you end up in a car accident and are hospitalized...
On its own, this would seem like bad luck, right?
Guide Project Hajime 03
Well, yeah.
Guide Project Komaeda 07
But then you meet a lovely nurse at the hospital, and ended up becoming a lovey-dovey happy couple...
...Doesn't this ending mean it was good luck?
Guide Project Hajime 02
Well...maybe.
Guide Project Komaeda 06
You never would've met her at all if you hadn't experienced the bad luck of getting in a car accident.
Isn't that right?
Guide Project Hajime 11
...
Guide Project Komaeda 06
That's always been my experience.
The bigger the bad luck I experienced at first...
Guide Project Komaeda 09
The good luck that comes afterward is so big that it wipes out all of that bad luck!
Guide Project Hajime 21
Does...that really happen to you...?
Guide Project Komaeda 06
Didn't I tell you? That is the talent I possess...
That's why I'm called the Ultimate Lucky Student.
Guide Project Hajime 02
So that's why no matter what happens, he's always acting happy and upbeat...
No matter who is killed...it's just overshadowed by good luck later...
Even though it's only a little bit, I sort of understand Nagito's belief.
Guide Project Hajime 13
...But he's definitely messed up.
It's hard to imagine that there'll be a day when we're able to really understand each other.

Invite Nagito to hang out
Guide Project Komaeda 09
Hmhmhm...
Guide Project Komaeda 19
To tell you the truth, I'm really happy, Hajime.
With everything you've learned about me, you're still talking to me like this.
Guide Project Hajime 16
...Don't get the wrong idea.
Guide Project Hajime 12
I'm...just a coward...
I'm scared to leave someone like you alone when I don't understand you at all.
Guide Project Komaeda 25
Personally, I think it shows great courage to try to understand something you don't understand.
You are definitely someone who embodies hope.
Guide Project Komaeda 16
Ahhh...I wonder what kind of light your talent is going to unleash.
Guide Project Komaeda 12
I really want to find out soon!
Guide Project Hajime 16
Who cares about me...? Let's talk about you.
Guide Project Komaeda 12
Sure thing! I'll talk about anything you want!
Guide Project Komaeda 24
So let's start talking about the moment I came into this world!
Guide Project Hajime 18
Do you even remember that...?
Guide Project Komaeda 25
Hahaha! Good point!
Guide Project Komaeda 23
But before that, can I ask you something?
Guide Project Komaeda 06
What do you think good luck is?
Guide Project Hajime 02 Good luck, huh...
I'm not really sure I understand...but I think what Nagito's trying to say is...
Being lucky
Guide Project Hajime 18 Isn't it just...being lucky?
Guide Project Komaeda 25
Hahaha! It's rare to hear you give such a half-assed answer!
But to the general public, it probably does seem as simple as that.
Guide Project Hajime 04 That must not be the answer he was looking for...
The opposite of bad luck
Guide Project Hajime 01 Isn't good luck...just the opposite of bad luck?
Guide Project Komaeda 19
Of course not! For me, bad luck is just a part of having good luck.
Guide Project Hajime 02 That's right, you talked about nurses or whatever last time... Then...what is it?
Absolute power
Guide Project Hajime 02
Are you trying to say...good luck is absolute power?
Guide Project Komaeda 12
Precisely! For me, that's exactly what good luck is!
Regardless...it's a power that has terrible results due to the fact that I can't wield it with my own will.
Guide Project Hajime 03
An absolute power you can't wield with your own will...? Isn't that a dangerous thing to have?
No...I see... That's just how Nagito views it...
Guide Project Komaeda 25
Now then, let's start talking about me! Hmmm, where should I start...?
I know! This happened when I was in elementary school.
Guide Project Komaeda 22
One day, my family and I were planning to board an airplain from the San Cristóbal Airport.
Guide Project Hajime 11
Where in the world is that?
Guide Project Komaeda 14
But surprise, surprise! After we boarded, the airplane was hijacked!
Don't you think that's the worst luck? But surprisingly, a meteorite fell at exactly the right time...
Guide Project Komaeda 25
...Well, for a meteorite, it was only the size of a closed fist.
Anyway, that falling meteorite struck the hijacker and prevented any further problems.
Don't you think that's an amazing act of good luck?
Guide Project Komaeda 19
But...the meteorite also hit my parents, and they died instantly.
...Don't you think that's a terrible act of bad luck?
Guide Project Komaeda 12
But in the end, I obtained my freedom and an immense inheritance.
See? It was really amazing good luck all along, right!?
Guide Project Hajime 11
Nagito spoke about this event so optimistically, and my understanding just couldn't keep up with him...
A plane hijacking...and a meteorite...? And his parents died right in front of him...?
Guide Project Komaeda 13
Ah, there was also this one time in middle school when I was kidnapped by a murderer.
Man, don't you think that's just the worst luck?
Guide Project Komaeda 16
But coincidentally, I found a lottery ticket inside the trash bag that the murderer stuffed me in.
After I was safely taken in by the police, I checked out the numbers without giving it much thought...
Guide Project Komaeda 09
Surprise! I won 300 million dollars! Even I was amazed by this splendid act of good luck!
Guide Project Hajime 13
It's no use... My head's starting to hurt...
Guide Project Komaeda 23
And right before I entered Hope's Peak Academy...
...
Guide Project Komaeda 06
No, I shouldn't tell this story.
It's impertinent of me to burden you with all this because of my pointless situation.
Hahaha...
Guide Project Hajime 19
After dominating the conversation, Nagito left...
I feel like I still don't know much about him...
Guide Project Hajime 02
But it seems like he has an understandable reason for his blind faith toward hope.
I feel like...I was at least able to understand that.
Nagito's Report Card has been updated based on your experience with him.




DR2 Hope Fragment (Full)Free Time Event 5 (Page 6)

Invite Nagito to hang out
Guide Project Komaeda 22
Hajime, why are you...?
...
Guide Project Komaeda 16
No, the reason doesn't matter.
I just want to feel grateful for this good luck.
I want to be thankful that there's someone who's interested in trash like me.
Guide Project Hajime 01
The reason I'm here is because I wanted to hear the rest what you were going to say earlier.
Guide Project Komaeda 25
I don't mind. It's no big deal anyway.
Like I said before, my parents are dead.
Since I had no other relatives, "it" took direct action against me.
Guide Project Hajime 02
What does "it" mean...?
Guide Project Komaeda 22
My diagnosis.
Stage 3 malignant lymphoma, and to top it off...it's accompanied by frontotemporal dementia.
Guide Project Hajime 03
...Huh?
Guide Project Komaeda 13
Even now...my brain is deteriorating bit by bit while I'm speaking to you...
Guide Project Hajime 04
Y-You're kidding me, right...?
Guide Project Komaeda 19
My life expectancy is between half a year to a year...
But right after I was diagnosed, I was accepted into Hope's Peak Academy.
I believed that balanced things out... But now these killings are occurring, you know?
Guide Project Komaeda 25
As soon as my life entered the final round, it quickly became a rollercoaster ride!
But it's going to be all right... No matter the bad luck that happens, good luck always lies just beyond it.
Guide Project Komaeda 19
The reason I'm alive is because I always believe there's hope...no matter what.
Guide Project Komaeda 07
Do you understand me now...Hajime...?
Guide Project Hajime 12
...
No matter what his reasons were, I couldn't forgive all the things Nagito had done.
That's...what I'd been believing.
But still...
Guide Project Komaeda 23
Hajime...you and I are a lot alike...
Guide Project Hajime 04
...
Guide Project Komaeda 07
That's why you understand my feelings... I felt that from the start.
I don't feel the unique aura that exists in those who have talent from you...
I only detect the scent of a miserable bystander...just like me.
Guide Project Hajime 13
That...may be so, but...
I'm not miserable.
I'm...different from you!
Guide Project Komaeda 19
It seems there's no one who's willing to inherit my soul.
I have no parents, no siblings, no relatives... Not even friends or acquaintances...
Because of my self-righteous thoughts, everyone distanced themselves from me.
Guide Project Komaeda 13
I was fine with that while I was still healthy, but it's quite lonely to die alone...
Now that I'm on the verge of death, I've finally realized what I wanted all along: somebody's love.
Guide Project Hajime 03
Y-You...!
Guide Project Komaeda 25
...I read a book about something like that the other day.
Guide Project Hajime 11
Huh...?
Guide Project Komaeda 25
It was right of me to cite a book written for the masses. Thanks to that, I was able to gain your empathy.
Guide Project Komaeda 07
Yes, I'm satisfied now.
Guide Project Hajime 08
You...were lying...just now...?
No...everything you've said up to this point...all of it... It was all...lies...?
Guide Project Komaeda 06
...Have you finally decided to kill me?
If you want, I'll prepare the perfect crime. Then you can kill me...and you'll be saved...
Guide Project Komaeda 01
Hahahahaha! Let's commit the crime together so despair can become the foundation of hope!
You can do it! I believe in you! After all, you tolerated someone like me this entire time!
I'm sure a bright hope is sleeping inside you, too!
Guide Project Hajime 18
...
Nagito...just tell me one thing, and be honest.
If you didn't have your Ultimate Luck...what would you be doing instead?
Guide Project Komaeda 24
I...
Guide Project Komaeda 22
I guess I would probably be living a peaceful life... A boring, normal life with no hope and no despair.
Guide Project Hajime 16
...I see.
That's all. Goodbye.
I turned my back to him and as I walked away, I could hear Nagito's voice in the distance.
Guide Project Komaeda 26
Please, don't forget...
From the bottom of my heart...I am truly in love with the hope that sleeps inside you.
Guide Project Hajime 01
In the end, everything Nagito said...
...I don't know what was true and what was lies.
But even so, there might've been a definitive truth hidden somewhere in his words...
Guide Project Hajime 24
If there wasn't...there's no way I could feel this mysterious bond between Nagito and me.
If...he does obtain the hope he wants, what is he going to do...?
Strangely enough...I feel like I want to see that...

Trivia

  1. Nagito Komaeda's report card trophy, Hope Springs Eternal, is a reference to the line "Hope springs eternal from the human breast" from the poem An Essay on Man by Alexander Pope.
  2. 2.0 2.1 The trophy for completing all report cards, "Mr. Congeniality", refers to the "Miss Congeniality" reward given at Miss Universe beauty pageants, and the 2000 Sandra Bullock movie of the same name.
