Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (Demo)

Kirumi Tojo (東条 斬美 Tōjō Kirumi) is a student in Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles and a participant of the Killing Game Semester featured in Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony.

Kirumi has made a name for herself, due to filling any request given to her perfectly. She takes her role as a maid seriously, and commits herself to it. This has earned her the title of Ultimate Maid[1] (超高校級の「メイド」 chō kōkō kyū no “meido” lit. Super High School Level Maid).

Before Joining Danganronpa
NDRV3 Cast Prologue

Kirumi Tojo is a normal talentless high school girl who participated in the 53rd Season of Danganronpa, a famous worldwide reality show made by Team Danganronpa.

Kirumi and the other talentless fifteen students undergo the fabrication process, where all of their past memory and personality were heavily fabricated. She also received the talent and title of Ultimate Maid. All of this were done for the sake of satisfying Danganronpa's audience from all around the world. After the fabrication process done, Kirumi and the others entered the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles as a whole different person, officially commencing the 53rd killing game season known as the Killing Game Semester.

Students of Fabrication

She used to attended Milky Way High School (天ノ川高校). However, it is unclear if this memory of her is a part of the fabrication made by Team Danganronpa.

Fabricated Past

After she successfully participated in the 53rd Killing Game, Kirumi's memories and past were fabricated by Team Danganronpa as follows.

While working a part-time job as a maid, Kirumi was able to carry out any job and created a reputation for doing perfect work. She is popular among freshman and was even selected as a bodyguard for visiting heads of state. This was later revealed to be a mere rumor, as Kirumi explained that she was only employed as a maid.[4] She also stated that she turned down the job to run a country.[5]

Having performed many achievements and perfectly accomplishing every task given to her, the government decided to request Kirumi's assistance. She worked as the shadow of the Prime Minister of Japan in rebuilding the country and improving Japanese citizens' quality of life. Her strong motivation to support all citizens is what made her able to accomplish the government's request, to the point that Kirumi became Prime Minister herself.

The Gopher Plan

Main article: The Gopher Plan
The Gopher Plan V3 Kids
Part of the fake backstories created for Kirumi and the other fifteen students was the Gopher Plan, which supposedly happened before the killing game started. It was initiated by the government after countless meteorites crashed into Earth. To try and preserve the last vestiges of mankind before the Earth's destruction, the government decided to select a number of excellent human beings, put them in a spaceship, and have them escape.

Kirumi and fifteen other high school students were chosen to participate. Not wanting to abandon their loved ones, they attempted to escape from the plan.

Around that time, an extremist cult came into power. They believed that the meteor crashes were a punishment humanity brought upon itself, and having heard of the Gopher Plan, they tried to stop it. As a result, the “Ultimate Hunt” started and spread throughout the world, and the sixteen students were hunted down.

The Gopher Plan Fake Deaths

The government then decided to counter the situation by faking the students' deaths, calming down the “Ultimate Hunt” while providing protection to the students. The Gopher Plan was then put into action while the Earth was being destroyed. Kirumi and the others went to the space in a massive colony spaceship, the true form of Ultimate Academy of Gifted Juveniles.

Kokichi Oma, one of the participant of the plan, declared himself as a member of Junko Enoshima's Remnants of Despair who masterminded the Killing Game and let Monokuma entered the spaceship, effectively forcing Kirumi and the others to participate in the Killing Game.

It should be noted that Kirumi has no complete recollection of the event, as she was executed before she actually received a complete memory about The Gopher Plan by the Flashback Light in Chapter 5.

Spoilers start here.
After Monokuma officially started the Killing Game, Kirumi tried to maintain her composure as everyone else began to panic. Thanks to Kaede Akamatsu's motivational argument, the panic died down, leaving Kirumi impressed with her leadership skill. Later on, she would follow Gonta Gokuhara to the boiler where there was a secret tunnel located under a manhole. However, no matter how many times they tried, Kirumi and the others couldn't escape from the Death Road of Despair. Monokuma and his children appeared, telling them that the tunnel was a trap to crush the student's wish to escape from the academy. Since it was already nighttime, Kirumi suggested everyone to sleep in their respective dorms and left the secret tunnel.

Not long after Kirumi and the others failed attempt to escape via the secret tunnel, Monokuma announced the first motive: anyone who committed murder will automatically graduate without a class trial being held. Furthermore, if no one started the Killing Game, he would execute everyone without exception. This announcement completely broke the group's harmony, and everyone ended up splitting up. Left in the cafeteria, Kirumi was curious with Rantaro Amami's question about the "Ultimate Hunt", but her questions went unanswered.

In the morning of the final day of the time limit, Kirumi, who was in the cafeteria, witnessed Rantaro and Ryoma's quarrel along with Angie Yonaga. She listened to Ryoma discuss that he was willing to sacrifice himself for the sake of the others, because he was the only one among the group who has no reason to continue to live. His statement would greatly affect Kirumi's decision in committing a murder in the next chapter.

Later on, Kirumi stayed in the cafeteria with Miu Iruma, Tsumugi Shirogane, and Korekiyo Shinguji. After the body discovery announcement was made, Kirumi was among the last group of students to enter the library and discover the corpse of Rantaro Amami, the Ultimate ???.

During the class trial, Kirumi pushed suspicion of killing Rantaro onto Gonta Gokuhara, since he had locked himself in the AV room. Kaede Akamatsu was quick to defend him, stating that he could not have gone out into the hallway since the door from the AV room into the hallway was broken and that he couldn't get out through there. Despite this, Kirumi pressed further, apologizing to Gonta, but stating that she would do whatever she could for everyone's sake. She stated that he didn't need to open the AV room door all the way, just enough for him to fit his arm through it and use the folded up screen from the AV room as a pole to open the door to the library directly across the hall, and throw the shot put, which she claimed he could do with his immense strength presented when he lifted the manhole cover. Kaede however, would deny this as well since the moved bookshelf in the library would have been in the way of the shot at that time. As such, it would have been impossible for Gonta to murder Rantaro. Kirumi apologized for doubting him, but Gonta replied that it wasn't a problem and that it was all done to find the truth. Later, when the crime was being pinned on Shuichi Saihara, Kirumi was among the students to defend him.

When Shuichi revealed Kaede as Rantaro's killer, Kirumi was skeptical until Shuichi revealed the "contraption" Kaede had set up with the books on top of the book shelves. Kirumi felt sorry for Saihara, knowing how close the two were, and knew how hard it would be to reveal that to everyone. After Shuichi had made the whole crime clear, Kirumi stated that no matter what, she could still believe in Kaede because even if she had committed a crime, the words Kaede had said to protect everyone were not lies.

Prior to her execution, Kaede stated that she believed everyone would end the Killing Game and that they would all be great friends in the outside world. Kirumi consented to this, seeming to strongly respect Kaede for her determination and for keeping the group together.

A Maid's Duty

For the second motive, Kirumi is given a MonoPad to see pictures of people who hold her dear. Her MonoPad showcased people that live in the country she had control over, due to her status as the acting prime minister. She cares for each of their lives, and her empathy is strengthened after viewing the motive. She decides to escape the school by killing Ryoma Hoshi, because she thought of him as the weakest person in the school who has already given up living on his own will after seeing his own MonoPad.

Kirumi invited Ryoma to his own Research Lab and later killed him by knocking him out, handcuffing him, then drowning him in his own research room. She then utilized a trick to send Ryoma into a glass container that is filled with water and a lot of piranhas, blocking the piranhas from reaching him using a glass panel.

The container of piranhas were intended for Himiko Yumeno's magic show, in which she intended to perform a water tank escape trick in a limited time, with the piranhas released into the tank when time runs out. When the piranhas (along with Ryoma's body) were released into the tank after Himiko successfully escaped the tank, Ryoma's handcuffed corpse was devoured by the piranhas in front of the eyes of all remaining students in the academy.

Kirumi is identified as the culprit during the second Class Trial. She reveals to her peers that the Prime Minister of Japan gave her the permission to govern a small country. She cared deeply for every citizen residing in her country, and after viewing the motive, she decided to break free. Then she explained why Ryoma gave his life to her and why she killed him.

Kirumi Tojo's escape

After Monokuma announced that she will be executed shortly, she sprinted away from the trial room, not wanting to die and to return to her country. However, she could not escape her punishment and was executed.

Creation and Development

Kirumi's Birthday, May 10th, coincides with the Maid Day in Japan.

Name


Her given name kanji 斬美 kirumi, can be translated as "slicing/beheading beauty" while her last name kanji 東条 tōjō, means "provisions from the east".

Alternate Fates


In Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (Demo Version), Kirumi was first seen in the lodging area along with Tsumugi Shirogane and Ryoma Hoshi. She introduced herself as the Ultimate Maid to Kaede Akamatsu and Makoto Naegi. As Makoto explained that she is a very talented person as a maid and athlete. Kirumi humbly denied his statement, saying that all of them are overstatement.

Later, Kirumi cleaned all the students dormitories before the incident of Yasuhiro Hagakure's murder. She states that she doesn't see the culprit during that time and Tsumugi's testimony proves Kirumi's alibi. During the investigation, Kirumi guarded the crime scene along with Hajime Hinata.

Personality

Kirumi is a refined, mature young lady who's described as "a professional who does a perfect job". She has a keen mind and talented in various ways, reportedly able to carry out any job, as well as capable of being independent and do things on her own. She is polite and formal, as well as quite serious, and very willing to use all of her power to cooperate with the other students.[6]

As a maid, her creed is "duty before self". Thus, she has a very strong sense of duty and a will to work for the sake of others even during the Killing Game. She voluntarily does house work such as cleaning and preparing meals for the students, even making sure each time that there's both Japanese and Western cuisine.[7] Because of this, the other students seem to have strong trust in her, and she tends to wait outside the dormitory in case anyone has any requests for her. Her concern and kindness is often described as "motherlike", with Kokichi Oma even asking her to be "his mom". However, being a high school student, Kirumi completely denies such comparisons.

On the other hand, Kirumi lacks the concept of doing something for herself, and for her even to have a conversation is a request.

Despite her sense of duty, she also has a limit to what she is willing to do, declining requests such as destroying a nation, giving sexual services, or unfairly removing someone who hasn't done anything wrong from a public area. She has stated that while she is a maid, she is not a slave.

She has a great sense of determination, so much so that during her execution, she goes out of her way to escape the entire situation rather than just succumbing to death.

Kirumi strongly believed in Kaede and was impressed with how well she was able to keep the whole group together as well as how she was able to keep a killing from happening during Monokuma's time limit motive. After Kaede was revealed as Rantaro's killer, this strong sense of trust and belief did not waver. Kirumi stated that despite the fact that she committed a crime, the words Kaede said in order to protect everyone were very much real. When Kaede asked everyone to end the Killing Game and be good friends in the outside world, Kirumi said that she would do as she requested before Kaede was executed.

Unfortunately, Kirumi would end up betraying Kaede post-mortem after the second motive was presented, killing Ryoma Hoshi and being executed herself during the second class trial.

When they first met, Shuichi realized who Kirumi really is and was surprised when she mentioned how popular she is because of her talent. Kirumi seems to care for Shuichi, willing to obey him the same way as the rest of their classmates. She even told Kaito to stop hurting Shuichi after the first trial ended. Kirumi was really disappointed when Shuichi pointed her out as the culprit in the second trial. Kirumi still hasn't accepted her fate and tried to vote Shuichi as the culprit. Shuichi was depressed and upset when he got to see another friend getting killed. He seems to be also one of those people who tried to tell Kirumi to run away from her execution.

In the bonus love hotel scene, Shuichi has a role of being Kirumi's master, whom she has fallen in love with. At first she believes these feelings are inappropriate but Shuichi convinces her otherwise.
