Wow. I did not expect that at all. Danganronpa episode 4 has bested the previous episode and exceeded all my expectations once again. In this episode we learn of Munakata's plans to use Naegi as bait to lure out the "real" attacker, as according to Munakata the "real" attacker's plan is to use a sacrificial pawn to infiltrate the Foundation, and thus become a hero who survived the game. The attacker's newfound status would effectively give them control over the Future Foundation, particularly if Naegi was among one of the survivors. The irony of this would be that while proclaiming hope the attacker would use Hope (Naegi) to deeply plant the roots of despair. Twisted no?
But it does not stop there, because Munakata's ploy to identify the traitor is foiled, and instead, another meaningless death arises. To make matters worse, the most unsuspecting (in my opinion) character turns out to be the most suspicious and it appears like there could be another traitor in the midst? Truly fantastic. By the end of this episode I was rendered speechless (hence the decrease in word count. Sorry, Dustin). This episode is chuck full of surprises.
