Eigo Amino (綱野 英吾) is a character in Danganronpa Kirigiri.
Eigo was a member of the Detective Library that was called alongside four other detective to the Sirius Observatory. Upon arriving there he, unknowingly, took part in a Duel Noir where he was murdered by the culprit.
Eigo wears a long coat and looks like a normal salaryman to the rest of the world. He has brunette hair, brown eyes, and brown eyebrows, which match what he's wearing. Yui Samidare describes him as having no "individual personality" as a result of his looks. He also carried a briefcase around with him.
Eigo is an arrogant slacker, but despite his personality, he sucks up to those of higher rank than him, such as Ko. In contrast, he looks down on those of lower rank than him in order to inflate his ego and is very insecure about his own rank. He can also be very rude towards others.
Throughout his time at the Sirius Observatory, he's shown to be easily annoyed and is rattled by the situation. He frequently suggests abandoning the case when it becomes clear something is wrong, showing a sense of pragmatism. He has shown lack of foresight, such as not prepping supplies if he finds himself stranded. His seems to enjoy listening to music while reading, and has a smoking addiction.

Eigo is a 35-year-old detective and specializes in business crime and ranked 7. His DSC number is 367. On December 22, He was was called to the Sirius Observatory by Tadashi Asakura under the alias of Yoshizono Ooe. He accepted and was joined alongside four other detectives: Kyoko Kirigiri, Yui Samidare, Kō Inuzuka and Shita Enbi at the Hatesaki Station. During their escort trip to the Observatory by van, Eigo bragged about his rank and was rude to Ko as a result of the detective's behavior and appearance, until he was shown Ko's standing outranked him. From there, he began sucking up to him, acting as his apprentice and letting Ko teach him about the Observatory.
When the van let them out in the middle of nowhere, he complained and tried to coax the driver who refused to continue onward. However, he was stopped by Ko and joined the others in walking to the Observatory. Once there, and their investigation showing no one else was present, he suggested they leave the Observatory, but is swayed to stay by Ko's believing this is a test, as well as the fact a blizzard was currently blocking their way back. When the five agreed to split up to continue their investigation, he offered to join up with Yui and Kyoko, but only did so in order to take a smoke break. However, he reported feeling dizzy before ultimately falling unconscious, a fate that applied to the rest of the detectives.
During this time, he was returned to his room and killed via dismemberment by the culprit of the case Tadashi Asakura who posed as Shita, with his body parts aside from his head being switched with another. After Tadashi's defeat, it was revealed Eigo was killed merely as a way to complete his murder trick.
Despite initially disliking Ko due to the detective's drunken behavior and perceived lecherous behavior, he sucks up to him when it was revealed Ko was a Class 3 detective. Ko, on the other hand, treats Eigo like a rookie and uses him to boast about his knowledge of the case.
While initially polite and seemingly defensive of Yui possibly getting taken advantage of by Ko, he still finds the need to brag about being higher rank than her and has no qualms in using her and Kyoko as a means to investigate while he slacks off.
- His first name, "Eigo" (英吾), means "our brilliant [child]" - which is somewhat ironic as he's shown to be the least competent detective during the Sirius Observatory Duel Noir.
- "Amino" (綱野) literally means "a field of rope" (which is traditionally made of hemp).
