Not Normal Arc: Return of the New Century Galaxy Legend! O Armored Hero, Stand upon the Earth! (新世紀銀河伝説再び!装甲勇者よ大地に立て! 非日常編) is the seventh episode of Danganronpa: The Animation, the anime adaptation of the video game Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc.


Two students have been killed one after the next and all of the evidence seems to point at Yasuhiro Hagakure. But the way Makoto Naegi sees it, things just aren't adding up quite right. Is their blood really on Yasuhiro's hands or has he been framed?

The episode begins with a flashback to the previous episode: Hifumi Yamada dying in Aoi Asahina's arms as Monokuma announces that a corpse has been found, and that a Class Trial will be held soon.

Those present agree that Yasuhiro is guilty for both murders. Sakura Ogami suggests that Kyoko Kirigiri may have been an accomplice because she was missing the whole time, but is quickly rebutted by the fact that being an accomplice comes with "zero benefits".

Makoto leaves soon after the others to look for Kyoko and Yasuhiro, but is found by the former instead. Kyoko interrupts Makoto when he asks her where she'd been all this time, requesting that he assemble everyone for her. They assemble at the pool. Byakuya Togami starts getting angry when Kyoko doesn't say anything, but opens the locker next to her, saying that she found it earlier. Everyone is visibly shocked with the exception of Celestia Ludenberg. Inside the locker is the Justice Robot suit.

Sakura and Makoto help Yasuhiro out of the robot suit, Toko Fukawa making fun of Yasuhiro for making something he can't get out of, but Yasuhiro claims that he didn't make it himself. He tells the others that he got a note telling him to meet up with someone. However, he was attacked from behind and knocked out, and when he came to, he was wearing the robot suit. Byakuya asks for the note, of which Yasuhiro no longer has. Aoi and Byakuya are doubtful that Yasuhiro is innocent, but when asked, Yasuhiro is visibly shocked that he attacked others. As Aoi continues to try and persuade Hagakure to tell the truth, Celestia notes how amazing it is that Kyoko found Yasuhiro inside a pool locker, to which Celestia gets no response, only something resembling a suspicious glare.

Makoto chases after Kyoko when she exits, asking her what she was up to, and about how she suddenly disappeared. Kyoko says that she was "investigating something", and when he inquires further, she pushes him away, saying "it's nothing". Kyoko then says that she wants to see the corpses. Makoto notes that "want to see the corpses" isn't something he thought a girl would say.

Kyoko inspects the corpses of Kiyotaka Ishimaru and Hifumi, with Makoto saying that they died due to blunt trauma to the head. Multiple clues are found by them, and Kyoko finds Hifumi's note. Then, they go to the Class Trial. On the way down, Makoto thinks that there is too much they don't know, despite the evidence they have. He thinks about Hifumi's last words, and has doubts whether 'Yasuhiro' was really about Yasuhiro Hagakure or not.

The class trial begins. Aoi and Celestia insist that they know already who did it: Yasuhiro Hagakure. Yasuhiro frustratingly insists that it wasn't him, but Aoi recites Hifumi's last words once again, saying that Hifumi clearly named his killer. Celestia pulls out the pieces of evidence: blueprints and parts of a robot. Makoto objects, asking how they knew that Yasuhiro drew the blueprints. Celestia asks what he is getting at, and Makoto pulls out the note that Yasuhiro showed him earlier: 'Kyoko calls for us'. He states that the difference in handwriting is "like light and day". Celestia replies, saying that he probably switched his stlye. An annoyed Yasuhiro insists that he's "not that good". Makoto also states that the corpses were likely moved with a trolley, and that it would've been hard to move a handless trolley in a stiff robot suit.

As Toko and Byakuya agree, Aoi asks about the picture that Celestia took. Kyoko intervenes, saying they should talk about the other possibilities. Celestia sighs, saying that Kyoko was the only other person absent. Kyoko says that even with a trolley, it would have still been hard to move Hifumi's body and suggests that the corpse moved itself, being met with shock and a rebuttal from Celestia. Celestia says that Monokuma announced Hifumi dead. Kyoko says that Kiyotaka and Hifumi were found around the same time, but Celestia says that Monokuma was probably lazy and did two-in-one. Monokuma refuted her statement, saying that he made the announcement as soon as the corpse was found.

Then, Celestia asks if there was any difference in the posture. Makoto answers with the fact that Hifumi's glasses were covered in blood at first, but were clean in the art storage room. This arouses gasps of realization from the others as Byakuya notes that were blood bags in the infirmary refrigerator. Toko suggests that Hifumi used the blood and played dead. Sakura is reminded that the art storage room was locked when they were looking for the bodies, and that the door can only be locked from the inside. Kyoko presents the note she found in Hifumi's underwear (while prompting disgust and shock from the others), and Yasuhiro says that it has a different meeting time than his note. Kyoko agrees, saying that Hifumi called Kiyotaka out and knew the note would be used as proof, thus hiding it in where he thought no one would find it.

Aoi recalls the numbers on the hammers, and Makoto suggests the numbers were there just to throw the others off and that the numbers had nothing to do with the victims. Celestia, voice rising slightly higher, asks what weapon was used to kill Hifumi. Makoto thinks back to the freshly washed hammer on the wall. Makoto goes on, saying that since Hifumi moved the corpse, he wasn't a victim, but rather, an accomplice. Due to the fact accomplices can't graduate, Makoto proposes that the real culprit tricked Hifumi into helping commit the crime. Monokuma finishes the debate, asking the students to make a decision and leaving a question: who was the one who tricked and killed Hifumi and killed Kiyotaka for 10 billion yen?

Makoto thinks to himself, mentally going through the whole thing. He picks up on something Celestia said earlier: "He'll kill us like he killed them." Makoto asks her how she knew that not one, but two people died, as they had not yet told Celestia of Kiyotaka's death. Celestia holds up the picture of the Robo Justice and Hifumi, to which Makoto asks if the robot was really dragging the latter away, and that it wasn't just the robot carrying Hifumi. Celestia laughs almost maniacally, saying that Makoto really wants to frame her as the culprit. Then, Makoto objects, saying it could be no one else. To this, Celestia gets incredibly mad, and recalls the last words of Hifumi: 'Yasuhiro'. Makoto asks for Celestia's real name, but she objects, asking if she would have such a "lame last name like Yasuhiro". He then asks her to show her student handbook, because it displays user's real name when booting up. Celestia has no response, indicating that Makoto's suspicions were true. Makoto tells Celestia that she lost, and Celestia admits she did it. She then asks Monokuma to start the punishment.

The vote is unanimous, with Celestia found guilty. Monokuma tells them Celestia's real name: Taeko Yasuhiro. Then, Celestia reveals her entire plan: motivating Hifumi by using Alter Ego and killing both Ishimaru and Hifumi. She also tells them of her dream: to live out the rest of her days in a Western castle, which was why she turned to gambling. Monokuma's 10 billion yen would've been sufficient for the castle, had Celestia gotten away with the murder. Aoi asks why and how Celestia can stay so calm, to which the latter answers, saying that she can lie not only to others, but also to her own heart. Celestia starts walking away for her execution, saying that if she were to be reborn, it would be as Marie Antionette. Before her parting, she gave Kyoko the key to a locker where she hides Alter Ego, with Celestia asking if it was truly a beacon of hope, saying that she couldn't think of it that way. Then, she bids farewell to the others, and wishes for them to meet again in another life.

After the trial ended with Celestia's execution, Kyoko and Makoto discovered Alter Ego located in one of the lockers of the bathhouse. As Kyoko begins to leave, Makoto asks her what she was doing all day, by herself. Kyoko responds with "nothing you need to know right now.", and Makoto, upset, stands up urgently and tells Kyoko that he was really worried. He starts saying that if she keeps disappearing without a word and acting like that, but Kyoko finishes for him: that everyone will suspect her of being the "Mastermind's agent. She suddenly turns around, asking if Makoto suspects her too. Makoto says no, he trusts her, but Kyoko repeats the question--"You trust me?"--with hints of disbelief. Makoto goes on, saying that they're on the same team and wants Kyoko to trust him too. She says that she may give the "trust thing" a try and tells him what she was investigating: a secret room, in the boys' washroom on the second floor. Behind a hidden door in a supply closet in the washroom is a hidden room, where Makoto finds the Hope's Peak Academy Student Register, and sees the words "You must not leave this place" written inside the book. But then, just as Makoto reads out the ominous phrase, a masked figure comes out from behind him and hits him on the head, knocking him unconscious.

After he regained his consciousness, Makoto realized all the files in the hidden room were gone. Amidst his worry and confusion, Sometime later, he overheard a commotion from the gym. Before the episode ends, Makoto discovered that the commotion was caused by Monokuma and Sakura who were fiercely engaged in hand-to-hand duel.

Seven survivors out of fifteeen remain in the Killing Game.
