Just two friends on an uneventful afternoon stroll
My favourite double take was just how shredded Taka was. I know it’s probably a symptom of the art style but the idea that the ultimate moral compass was ripped was just so bloody funny to me.
From that was born the inevitable conclusion that if Taka ever got off his high horse he’d hold his own easily.
Plus seeing a straight laced character go absolutely feral brings me such vicarious joy; Kiyondo Ishida was wasted potential.
Also you can pry the bright pink blood from my cold dead hands I LOVE the AESTHETIC - I could not care less about the reasoning for it
A li’l bonus
The disastrous internal monologue of two hopeless dorks
plus as some point I figure Naegi has to have developed some sort of survival instinct whenever someone asks for a favour. It never ends well for him

Ringing in the New Year in style
I’ve got true danganronpa brain rot - been powering through the games but so far the DR1 kids are still my faves.
(also I’m not gonna pretend having been a teacher’s pet myself who had to study hard to get grade As and had a stick up his arse when it came to followin’ rules, didn’t have me vibing with Taka.)
I rarely post anythin’ this indulgent but hells bells, given the last 12 months why not at this point.
I’ve seen the “do you wanna kiss? Oops! I meant a Hershey’s kiss!” meme thing goin’ around here and there, but I got struck by the thought that both Mondo and Taka were such oblivious disasters that they’d 100% fall for it; hence.
(also I’m British, I’ve never seen a Hershey’s kiss in the flesh - do they come in boxes? I have no idea. I was thinkin’ like Maltesers)
I spent way too long makin’ a fake discord screenshot from the ass up for 1 (one) joke

Step by step
We're still figuring things out, but we'll get there.
This was a quick one, I damn near forgot!
I'm new-ish to pride having been closeted throughout my teens; not for lack of support or safety, but rather internal conflicts. Even now I'm perennially shy about expressing my attraction to men as a man, and it's not info I tend to volunteer. So I am forever in AWE of anyone who has the strength to be seen, to be visible and vocal; even if it's just a badge, something small and easily missed by most. I can't express the camaraderie I feel every time.
Not to be dramatic or anything.
'Poor tact leading to accidental foot in mouth Taka' is one of my favourites (followed closely by 'unexpectedly competent Taka in an unusual field) and 'improper' to mean incorrect vs 'improper' to mean indecent is an easy mistake to get tripped up on.
Plus Taka espousing 'Uniform Policy' in a school that clearly authorises an insane amount of uniform customisation tickles me something fierce. There seem to be next to no actual rules in Hope's Peak but Taka'd be DAMNED if that stopped him enforcing some kind of order.
(additionally, looking up references for the hallways of the hellscape that is Hope's Peak was a JOURNEY. Bamboo corridor?? Bright red/green/purple lighting?? Reminded me of LCC which felt like a repurposed car park except with Hope's Peak it's a disused 80s strip club -in both cases, a nightmare to attend.)
