I've finally arrived. The Şablon:İmp. And my father is the headmaster...


I will continue being a detective. But some things have changed. Now...I have friends that I can start with my new journey with.

Friendship Events[]

With Shuichi Saihara[]

With Shuichi Saihara
Ah, Kyoko. There's something that I've been meaning to ask you...
...What is it?
You were a detective before you even entered high school, correct?
Yes...it's been years since I first entered this line of work.
It's been that long? I thought *I* was young to start working as a detective... You're incredible, Kyoko.
...I feel kinda bad now. An apprentice like me doesn't deserve to share the title of Şablon:İmp with you...
But you're here because Hope's Peak Academy recognizes your accomplishments, yes?
I...don't know about that. I just solved a case by chance...
Be that as it may, you still grabbed hold of the truth and solved the case, didn't you? No one, not even you, can deny that outcome.
Others accept that you are a detective, and have also come to rely on you, too. The other day, I saw you running all over the place with Ryoma and Peko... No doubt because they needed your insights as a detective, right?
Ah, I was just looking for a missing cat around the academy... I've handled plenty of missing pet cases before, so I was able to help, but...
Do you think it's meaningless for people to rely on you?
...No, that's wrong. It makes me...so happy to be helpful.
Then I see no reason for you to compare yourself to me. Every detective is shaped by their motives, methodologies, and case histories.
That's why I believe I should always seek out the truth.
By adhering to your methodology, you've earned accomplishments as a detective, haven't you?
That's true... I'll never forget that, Kyoko.
I apologize for having such a negative attitude earlier. Thank you for encouraging me.

With Makoto Naegi[]

With Makoto Naegi
Huh? Kyoko? Why are you here so late?
I'm on my way back from the headmaster's room.
The headmaster's room? Could it be...
...It's for work. I can't really talk about it in detail.
Huh? It's for...work?
Um...I've been wondering, Kyoko, but... Is Headmaster Kirigiri your...
What do you plan to do with that information?
What do I—? I was just curious.
You're curious about me?
I know you don't like talking about yourself, but... We're in the same class so...I want us to learn about each other and become better friends.
Hm...I'll answer your question then. My surname is uncommon, so it's natural you'd think that. The headmaster is...my father.
So he's your father after all... That's amazing... The headmaster of Hope's Peak and his daughter, an Ultimate, working together.
The fact that we're related doesn't matter. It's natural for a detective to take on cases... Even as family members, we only talk about work.
My father left when I was little, so we have nothing to talk about.
Is...that so... But...there's really nothing you want to talk to him about?
I'm sure there are some things he wants to say to you.
I doubt it...
How do you know that for sure? Have you ever asked him?
I have no reason to waste my time confirming that. I don't think anything of him.
Sorry, I've said too much... I assume you regret asking me now...
No, that's not true. I'm glad you told me. It's probably something you wouldn't talk about with just anyone, right?
If you don't mind, I'd like you to tell me more about yourself...if that's okay.
If I feel like it...

With K1-B0[]

With K1-B0
Kyoko, you're also the Şablon:İmp, right?
Yes, I'm the same as Shuichi from your class.
Having two Ultimate-level detectives in one school is like something out of a story.
I've met many teenage detectives who have made a name for themselves.
M-Many detectives!? Really?
Yes, it's not so rare. Of course, most of the other detectives are adults.
I must reevaluate my understanding of the depth and scope of the detective industry.
If it's not too much trouble, will you tell me more about detectives?
What are you planning to do with that sort of knowledge?
Well, I've only ever met two detectives—you and Shuichi. So naturally I'm curious.
Shuichi told me that he used to help with his uncle's detective firm. Did you have a similar opportunity in which you were introduced to detective work?
There's nothing I can really say about that. I was born a detective.
You mean, like how I was born a robot?
I don't know about that...
That being said...if you were born a detective, you must have been involved in many cases.
That's not true. I'm not as skilled as others who can solve multiple cases at once.
Th-There are detectives who can do that!? The detective is truly amazing!
Even among detectives, each of us have different logic, investigation styles, and specialties.
There are many different specialties. Terrorism, kidnapping, gambling...even hacking.
Hm... How fascinating. I should ask Shuichi if he has a specialty. By the way, what's your specialty Kyoko?
Are you satisfied yet?
...Incredible. I feel like you're worlds apart from the rest of humanity.
I really don't want to hear that from a robot.

With Monomi and Monokuma[]

With Monomi and Monokuma
Kyoko, I'll be your P.E. teacher this time! Let's work hard as we work out! Harumph!
Aw, geez... I can't believe my shoddy little sister is the one teachin' this class...
Waaaah! Monokuma! What are you doing here!?
Um, I'm a student here, so...it's really not that strange for me to attend this class.
But you're always truant!
Well, yeah. The only thing that matters at Hope's Peak is acing the exams, right? So it's fine if I play hooky every once in a while or all the time, y'know?
No, it's not! Even the students who can't attend class are still out there using their talents!
Kyoko, you're still doing detective work while you go to school, aren't you?
Well, yes...I do at times.
That sounds so tough! Keep up the great work, though! You're doing an excellent job!
It's become normal for me. I've been living like this for a while now.
Well, having a talent is tough, too. You can't live a normal life or any other way, really... You pretty much have no freedom.
I am proud to be a detective, and I'm content with my current living situation.
Maybe you only think that way because you never had a say in the matter, hm?
Kyoko...I think it's commendable that you are so proud of your talent. But please do not spread yourself too thin. If things get tough...you can always talk to me or your classmates, okay? Of course, if you just wanna get together and tell some fun stories, that's okay too!
I don't really have any fun stories to tell...
O-Oh... Well, if you change your mind, you know where to find me...
Kyoko works so hard... You could learn a lot from her, Monomi. What do you do around here, anyway? I mean...why are you even at this school?
I...I could ask you the same question!

With Aoi Asahina and Maki Harukawa[]

With Aoi Asahina and Maki Harukawa
Oh, Maki! What are you doing out this late?
I'm just here to do my training.
Ah, I remember you train with Kaito and Shuichi sometimes.
Hmm, so you know then.
I heard it from Shuichi. We talk from time to time since we're both detectives.
So you like exercising, Maki? I didn't know that.
Hey, what about swimming? Do you swim a lot?
I don't swim...that often. Only when I need to.
Only when you need to, huh? That's not a lot, is it?
No, it isn't... By the way, are you two heading somewhere together?
We're heading to the large communal bath.
Oh, I see...I'm surprised you go there.
I go sometimes when I'm invited.
I was on my way back from training when I saw Kyoko. It was perfect timing, so I asked her.
Oh, if you're done exercising already, do you wanna join us?
I'll pass. I'll shower in my room.
Don't say that. Eating donuts after taking a bath is the best.
...Isn't it usually ice cream?
Didn't you say you were going to refrain from eating donuts at night, Hina?
I-I did say that, but...geez, Kyoko, you're so mean!
I just thought...maybe I could take my time and talk with Maki over tea or something. We're in different classes so it's hard to reach her, but I wanna play sports with her.
Are you sure it's not just for donuts?
No, it's not! If there's a snack you prefer, then I'll eat that too, Maki!
The food doesn't really matter to me.
It seems she's coming with us then. Good for you, Hina.
Wait...I didn't say I would go yet.
Hehehe, yay! And Kyoko is coming with us, too!
*sigh* Fine.
You held a special nighttime girls meeting!

Seasonal Events[]

Sports Festival[]

Today is the the sports festival... You're in the three-legged race! It's not your style, but you don't want to drag anyone down. Who should you be careful of?
I should discuss this with my partner
Let's do our best, Junko.
You don't look athletic, but your P.E. grades are pretty good, right? I'm relying on you then!
That's my line. I can tell from your movements that you exercise quite a bit.
Well, models do need some physical strength. And I need to keep my figure, so I exercise a bit. Did ya get a good enough look yet? You're very observant, Şablon:İmp.
You acknowledged each other's talents before the event!
I should be careful of teams with strong bonds
I should not underestimate the Şablon:İmp's leadership skills.
So the person in the next lane is Kyoko! I shall be your opponent!
Shouldn't you be saying, "I look forward to our match?" Well anyway, likewise.
My country has no events like this, so I am most excited! I fully intend to go all out!
It seems you're pretty enthusiastic about this. I'm sure you'll be difficult to beat.
You engaged in an intense battle with Sonia and her partner, who were in the next lane!
I should be careful of anyone who looks fast
...Are you cautious of me?
Was I staring at you rudely? I didn't mean it like that... I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings in any way.
You...didn't do anything. I just felt like you were.
You're sharp. You and your partner, Tenko... You both have superior physical abilities, so I took note of how powerful you two are.
Well, true. Even though sports festivals are a pain...I don't intend to hold back.
There's someone in my class who would nag me if I don't do my best.
You engaged in an intense battle with Maki and her partner, who were in the next lane!

School Festival[]

Today is the fall school festival... Should you work or check out everyone else's exhibits? What will you do?
There are exhibits in each classroom
Hey, Kyoko...wanna check out the haunted house? I made all the mechanisms in it!
This haunted house does seem to be quite elaborate, but I'll have to decline.
Wh-Why!? It'll be fun for sure! Oh... Or are you afraid or ghosts or being surprised or something like that?
No, it's nothing like that.
Of course not...
Well, if you think it'll be boring by yourself. I can go with you. But I'll probably be really scared, so you're gonna hafta protect me!
Aren't you the one who made all the mechanisms?
Going in together seemed like a hassle, so you declined Kazuichi's offer...
I heard there are shows in the gym
It's magic... It's magic, it's magic, it's magic!
Ah geez, like, shuddap already!
Is there some kind of trouble here? Although, I'm sure I can guess what's happening.
Oh, Kyoko, you came at a good time. Himiko was about to perform some magic tricks, but...
I was gonna do have a magic show filled with magic! Not tricks!
She's been acting like this... When I asked about her magic tricks, she got all stubborn and kept saying it was real magic.
You're the one that's being stubborn! How many times do I have to tell you I'm a mage!?
Cuz like, no way magic exists, right? Kyoko, say something.
Kyoko! Will you watch my magic show?
Hm...if you say magic is real, then Junko will have to believe it.
Ah, now you've done it. Don't you know? Kyoko can definitely figure out all the gimmicks to your magic tricks.
No...there's no gimmicks or tricks in my magic! Kyoko will tell you!
You heard her, Kyoko. Make Himiko realize that all her magic tricks are just gimmicks.
Alright...watch and be amazed by magic, you two.
I never actually said I would watch the show yet...oh, she's gone.
You thought about what to say to Himiko and Junko, while you enjoyed the magic show!
I'll work a shift at the juice stand
Man, I'm exhausted from working so hard! Give me a cold one!
Here you go.
Hey, thanks!
Did you need anything else?
This might be none of my business, but why don't you smile more, Kyoko?
I mean, you're in customer service. A nice smile... Man you'll have the guys begging to buy your stuff.
I haven't run into any problems yet. If it's about my cold demeanor, I'm working on it.
Oh, alright... I was just saying.
I'm sure you would say that to anyone though, right?
Not really. That advice was just for you!
Leon's advice aside...you decided to treat your customers like actual human beings!


Your last winter at the academy...but you've been too busy lately to be sad about graduation! You did some detective fieldwork at dawn, and now you're back at school... What will you do?
Maybe I'll drop by the classroom
Kyoko? Is something wrong? The closing ceremony is over...
Nothing, I just stopped by... I've been so busy with work lately that it's hard to visit often.
I see. You do seem pretty busy lately, Kyoko...
You weren't here for Christmas. I thought... I wouldn't see you until next year...
That's what I thought, too. What are you doing here alone?
I thought you might...come back here.
Um, Kyoko...? I know you're busy, but... If there's something bothering you, you can tell me. I can help you, Kyoko. Maybe I won't be much help, but... I want to try.
Then...tell me about yourself, Makoto.
Huh? Me? Why now?
I have told you stories about myself, so I think you should tell me yours now, right?
W-Well, I guess you're right...
It's just...I'm so normal. I'm so normal that my story might be over real quick...
Your normal stories might be a nice change of pace for me. I don't really know how normal boys live...
Ever since I was a child, I lived abroad. Afterward, I went to an all-girls middle school. The only males I interacted with were other detectives or clients.
I see... Then my story might be new to you.
And...I don't mind the story, as long as it's about you... I should control my emotions better...and I shouldn't overstep my boundaries, but...
You spent some time talking to Makoto about various things...
I'll go straight to the dorms
Oh, Kyoko. You weren't at the closing ceremony today, were you? Busy with work or something?
It was a sudden request. I finished it quickly, but I still couldn't make it to the ceremony.
Hm...must be tough. You were even working on New Year's, too.
Yes, I usually have work on Christmas, as well as the start and end of the year...
However, I'm sure you're busy as a model throughout the whole year, right?
Huh? Ohhh, of course... I have tons of photo shoots and stuff. But it's not like you where you have to deal with sudden cases or all-nighter investigations. You have to say several days at a place for investigations, right? That seems tiring.
Not really... I'm used to it.
Oh, are you busy tomorrow?
No, I already finished the last case request, so now I'm free... What did you want?
Hina talked to everyone about holding a party, even though Christmas already passed. Since you're free, would you be able to go?
Yes, I should be able to.
Ah, but you might get a sudden case request. Are the cases first priority?
I'll tell Hina you might not be able to attend, but...I hope you can go, Kyoko.
I...hope I can attend as well.
You became a little excited for tomorrow!
Someone suspicious just walked by...
Wait. Who are you...?
I am not an intruder. I have been permitted to stay at this academy.
I'm aware... You have been a rumor at the academy for two years now. An irregular male student of the same year with long hair... I never thought I'd meet you.
I've witnessed your existence, but I'm sure the school security doesn't plan to remove you. I won't question the fact that you've been allowed to stay here on school grounds.
I am called...Izuru Kamukura
Kamukura... That is the same surname as the founder of Hope's Peak Academy.
That's not your real name, is it? But rather, someone calls you that... Then it's natural of me to assume that you are someone important relating to this school.
You understood all that from just my name... Your talent is likely analytical in nature.
There's no point in hiding my talent from you. I'm Kyoko Kirigiri, Şablon:İmp.
Kirigiri... You must be related to the headmaster.
And what about that? Is he the one responsible for giving you the name, "Kamukura"?
The headmaster knows of me, but he is not the one who named me. He was merely the one who...took me in.
Took you in?
He also asked me to officially enroll in the academy. However, I declined.
So you have an Ultimate talent, as well. Who are you?
Do you have a reason to investigate that?
I don't... You are suspicious, but no one has given me any case requests regarding you.
Then you have no business with me. Or is the headmaster the one you're concerned for?
...Why would I be concerned about him? From what I know, you two have a friendship. I have no need to worry nor is there a reason to.
Hmm...I see. Well, don't worry. I have no plans to do anything that would hurt the academy.
Like I said...I'm not worried.
You encountered someone unexpected...

Appearances in Seasonal Events for Other Characters[]

With Chiaki Nanami[]

Today is the summer sports festival... You're going to do your best in the three-legged race! But it's your first time ever doing a three-legged race. What will you do?
I need to prepare my protective gear
I need to tie the rope around our legs correctly...
Huh...it's not working out...
There's a trick to it. Watch.
Oh, Kyoko...
Hmm...I see...
You tie it tight, so that the legs are firmly together. That's what's needed for competition.
Thanks, got it. If you're teaching this to your opponents... I wonder if a passionate rivalry will bloom.
It's no trouble. And besides, I don't think we'll lose just from that little tip.
Yeah, you're definitely my rival...I think. I can't lose.
...You had a fun battle with Kyoko!

Your last winter at the academy... Today is the Christmas party with your classmates!
You're toasting with juice, eating cake and snacks, playing games...it's very lively.
So what will you do now?
Oh...I forgot something in my room
Oh, I didn't expect to run into you. Did you forget something in the dorms?
Oh, I guess I should've known you'd be able to figure that out at a glance, Kyoko.
It was simple. You're having a party today, and you're the class rep in charge. You *should* be in the dining hall, but because you aren't...
You probably even know what it was I forgot, huh?
...A present for someone. That's the only thing that you would leave in the middle of a party to go get.
Yeah, you're completely right.
Forgetting to bring such an important present... It's a critical hit of regret... But I'm glad I remembered it now. I want to give it to them today.
I hope they like it... It's a bunch of my most recommended games!
You're right. You put a lot of thought into it, I'm sure that they'll love it.
You promised Kyoko you'd talk again later and ran back to the party...

With Fuyuhiko Kuzuryu[]

Today is the school festival... You're going to run a yakisoba stand.
At first it was a pain...but now you're getting into it! Try calling out to a passerby!
Hey, Kyoko, wanna stop by?
Oh...me? I'm surprised you would approach me...
Actually, I'm surprised to see you just walking around aimlessly. You were just nearby is all.
Do I need a reason to be walking around a school festival?
It ain't like that...but if you don't got any plans, how about some food?
Are you sure?
Your face might not show it, but I'm guessing you're enjoying the festival in your own way.
You gave Kyoko some yakisoba you made yourself!

With Hajime Hinata[]

Today is the main course's school festival... You were invited so you tried the escape room! Let's work hard and cooperate with the others! So, what will you do?
It's best for everyone to work together...
You don't seem all that into it, Kyoko. I guess games like these are too easy for you, huh?
Oh, I'm not bored. I've investigated cases related to games before, but nothing of this nature.
Ah...sorry. I didn't know.
You don't need to worry about it. Let's start the investigation. Even if it is a game, we need to gather all the clues, just like a real case. Right?
Yeah, let's do our best.
...You worked together with Kyoko to solve the mystery!

With Kokichi Oma[]

Your last winter at the academy... Graduation will be here before you know it. You have a few months left on this campus... Why not walk around while you still have the chance?
Maybe I'll commit the school into my memory
Oh Kyoko, I didn't see you at the closing ceremony. Did you just get back?
I did... Now, goodbye.
Heeey, hold on. Aren't you being too cold?
But, I should've seen it coming. A detective shouldn't be around a leader of evil.
You were investigating an incident my subordinates were involved in, right?
What are you scheming?
I'm trying to warn you, obviously! As schoolmates, I'm doing it just this once!
The incident you're involved with isn't simple. It'll be dangerous if you step in any further.
If you're trying to ask what my intentions are, it's to confirm your lies.
You treated my warning as a lie and even tried to ignore me... You got balls, Kyoko!
But you did some detective work today, right? We may be in different classes, but couldn't you assume I knew cuz I'm somehow involved in it?
It would've been easy to guess I was out for work when you didn't see me at the ceremony.
Well, that's true. But that doesn't really constitute as proof that I'm lying, right?
There's a different reason why I can say you're lying.
Ooh, and what's that? Tell me.
The case I received today was an incident that occurred several decades ago.
Even if the case was solved, we wouldn't be able to arrest the culprit.
However, the victim wanted it settled. He is suffering from a terminal illness...
He wanted to know the truth while he was still alive... And that's why he requested me.
Well? It's improbable that you would be involved with a case that long ago, don't you think so?
Hmmm...so you lie too, huh? That even sounded like a true story...
But it's weird a detective would talk so readily about the victim's background...
Would I have lied about my story? If your claim is true... ...then please explain the content of the case I was involved with today.
...Geeeez, I should've expected that from you, Kyoko. You can't be fooled that easily. I'm sure you'd be able to expose all my crimes, too. So scary.
Playing mind games like these with Kyoko might not be so boring!

With Mahiru Koizumi[]

Today is the school festival... You decided to exhibit your best pictures!
Someone has come to look at your pictures... What do you say to them?
These are from the sports festival
You're in a picture, too, Kyoko. See...here. You're squinting. Looks like you're having fun.
...Was I really making that face?
So the Şablon:İmp was able to capture an expression I was trying to hide...
Oh...do you not like it?
No, it's not that. I was just surprised. I don't often see a side of myself I don't recognize.
Haha...my pictures can even surprise the Şablon:İmp, huh? Not too bad.
You're right. Can I see more of them?
Of course! You're in plenty of pictures!
...I think I'll pass on looking at any more pictures of myself.
You showed lots of pictures to Kyoko!

With Peko Pekoyama[]

Today is the summer sports festival. Your events are over and you finally get a break... The soccer game is still going on, so you came to cheer. Where will you watch from?
I'll watch from far away
Peko? Are you here to support them? Then, would you like to sit closer?
No... Raising my voice and making a scene... That kind of cheering isn't really my style. Looking on from afar is perfect. You're also cheering from here, aren't you Kyoko?
I'm more just watching. I'll have plenty of time to cheer for them at the ceremony.
The next match is starting. It looks like your class is participating.
Yes... Your classmates are participating as well.
You're awfully calm. Isn't your class in a pinch right now?
I could say the same to you... Your class just lost control of the ball.
...The two of you quietly watched over the game until it ended.

With Sayaka Maizono[]

Today is the summer sports festival. For once, your job and a school event didn't overlap! You became the captain of the volleyball team. Who will you talk to before the game?
Kyoko...are you alright?
Yes, I am fine. I still feel a little uneasy.
Sorry, I'd prefer not to remove my gloves. It shouldn't interfere with passing the ball so...
Ah, that's not what I was worried about!
It's just...you seem a little tired. You've been pretty busy with detective work, haven't you?
You're always busy as well. Don't worry about me–you should worry about winning the game.
Yes! Then, let's do our best, Kyoko!
You played an intense game with Kyoko and your other teammates!

With Shuichi Saihara[]

Your last winter at the academy... Today is the closing ceremony, and you're up early... Thinking about only having a short time left at this academy makes you sad...
And from that comes restlessness. What will you do?
I should take a walk around the dorm
Hm? Kyoko? You're up early.
I have to leave for some urgent business.
Now...? Are you going to skip the ceremony?
That's right. I'll be able to come back early, but I won't be back for the closing ceremony...
Have you told your classmates?
No, but I have told the homeroom teacher...
Ah, well...I can let Makoto know, if you'd like.
The Monokubs said we were all supposed to do a spring cleaning of the grounds...
If you're going to miss it, I thought...you might want someone to take your place.
If that's the case... I'm sorry, but would you mind doing it?
Ah, don't worry about it! It's alright to depend on others when you need to.
I'll give you some advice someone gave me. Don't try to do everything by yourself.
Sometimes, asking for help is exactly what you need. Even if it's something small.
Ah, but...I might be getting a little *too* much help from everyone...
I never meant to hold it in... That was never my intention. When you involve yourself in someone else's business, you can easily misjudge them.
I'm sure you're right. There are certainly situations like that.
But aren't there times that make you think...you want to really trust someone?
Even if you might get hurt?
You phrase it as if I'm going to agree already.
Ah, s-sorry...
I'm not mad... Thank you for your consideration.
You and Kyoko grew a little closer today...
