I can't believe a writer is in the same class as me... That's pretty amazing.
Y-You say that even though you're a popular idol who gets all the attention...
To be honest, I haven't read your novels yet, but I was planning to read them soon. I was thinking of starting with your debut work.
Oh...I saw your novel in the library, Toko. I actually read some of them, ehehe...
Hmph... You're probably just doing this for an interview in a trendy tween fashion magazine... Like, "Lately, I've been reading my classmate's book!" or something...
I bet you're planning to say a staged answer like that for the media!
Y-You won't gain anything from using me! I'd never let them turn my novel into a movie, and I'd never pick you as leading actress!
Um...I'm really not planning to read it for those reasons.
Oh...but the heroine from your novel was the spitting image of Sayaka... Just kidding...
What!? Sayaka is like protagonist of my novel!? I-I mean, the reader can interpret my novel however they want, but... that's not possible! It's based off my own fantasy! Are you sure you're not thinking of some other book?
Oh...then I'm interested in the one Mikan was talking about. Can you tell which novel is it later? I think I'll read it, along with Toko's debut work.
How rare... My novel was the topic of conversation between two people...
Sayaka! You can borrow it from the library, but you have to buy it! Since you're probably rich!
It seems like everyone in class passed. That's good.
Yeah, the headmaster seemed to really like the photos in my portfolio, so I'm glad.
E-Everyone...thank you for your hard work!
You too, Mikan. Great job.
Th-Thank you! Um...I know there were some people who had given up at the start of the exams... If you feel sick, then please don't hesitate to stop by my room!
Yeah, when the time comes, I'll ask for your help.
Oh, yeah! How about we gather girls from our class and talk, while we bake and drink tea? Mikan said there were some people cramming for exams, so this might be a nice change of pace!
Oh, that sounds nice. Let's hold a game tournament, too. I'll bring lots of snacks.
Mikan...have you ever baked before?
Oh, I said yes without thinking... I'm actually not too good at baking... I-I'm sorry I couldn't meet up to your expectations! Please forgive me!
You don't have to take it so seriously... I'm not very good at it, either.
Then, let's look up some recipes and do something simple with everyone. It'll be the same as looking up a guide before going on a capture mission.
Okay then, I'll go invite everyone else.
Mikan, do you want to look up some recipes with me?
Y-Yes! I'll try my best to be useful! I look forward to working with you! Ehehehe...
Today is the sports festival... You're in charge of first aid! You finish treating all the injured students. Time to check on the people resting in bed.
The person in the left bed is faking...
Are you ready to go back, Kokichi? The afternoon events will be starting soon...
Is it already this late? But...I'm still not feeling well, sorry...
Ummm, someone like me shouldn't be saying this, but...you're faking it, aren't you?
Did I get caught? Or did you know from the start? Hmmm...well done, Mikan.
Aw maaan, how could I fail at lying? I'm so shocked that I can't even stand up...
I-I'm sorry for figuring it out! Please don't hate me!
But that's obviously a lie, too! I knew you'd be able to figure it out!
...You were somehow able to get Kokichi to stop ditching and get out of bed!
The person in the middle bed is faking too...
Hiyoko, it's almost time for the afternoon events. Um...I think you should go back.
I told you I don't like gross, stuffy sports festivals. I'd need to change out of my kimono.
Pig barf like you shouldn't tell me what to do. Just mindlessly do your job like a Mr. Ant.
Uhhh...I'm not pig barf...
...Hiyoko stayed in the middle bed all afternoon!
Huh? The right bed should be empty...
...but there's something under the sheets.
Ahh, a young woman's terrified screams... I think I could get used to hearing this!
Wh-What are you doing!? Don't scare me like that!
...Monokuma surprised you so much, it took years off your lifespan!
Today is the school festival... You're in charge of the reception desk for the haunted house! Instead of sitting around waiting for guests...why not try to approach passing students?
Excuse me...want to go in the haunted house?
What!? Wh-What's wrong!?
Kaito...you look terrible...and you started hyperventilating...
It's cuz you said haunted house! I almost wet myself just imagining it!
I'm really sorry I frightened you... Please accept my apologies! But, but, but...um...you'll be able to enjoy getting scared in the haunted house!
Hell no! That's impossible!
Wait, wait...I'm not scared. Everything in there is just fake, right?
Yes...they're all just props for the festival. So it'd make me happy if you tried it...sorta...
Sorry...I still can't.
You look like you're going to pass out, Kaito... Uuuh...I'm sorry I made you get like this...
You took care of a sickly-looking Kaito for a while...
I don't know if a robot will enjoy it, but...
What the—!? Casual robophobia!?
Phobia!? I didn't mean it like that at all!
Uhhh...I just didn't know if robots got scared at haunted house...I'm sorry...
Hey, please don't cry! You're making me feel bad for making you feel sorry! I don't scare very easily...but I'm sure I'll enjoy this attraction purely on its own merits.
I see... So you'll go in?
Um, well...I'm actually in a hurry since I have a prior engagement...
Uuuuuh! Not only did I discriminate against you, I stopped you when you were in a hurry... H-How can you forgive me!? I'll do anything so...please forgive me!
P-Please calm down! I'm not mad, honest!
You failed miserably at advertising, but Keebo forgave you...
I think you'll...definitely like the haunted house
What, y-you think I should join the ghosts!?
I-I never said that! It's a very fancy haunted house, so I really think it's fun...
D-Don't cry... What, do you think I'll forgive you quicker if you cry?
The way you look at people with those puppy dog eyes... It's so irritating! I bet you think that I'm even more of a doormat than you!
I didn't think that! Toko... How can you ever forgive me?
I-I'll think about it after you stop making a scene!
If I do that, then who will pay attention to me?
I-I don't know! You really are a pain in the ass! I'm leaving!
...You failed at advertising!
Your last winter at the academy... You're having a Christmas party with your classmates today! You went to buy drinks...but you got excited and bought too many. They're heavy... Why not take a break somewhere?
I'll take a break here...
Hey...what are you doing here?
Um, just standing... Um... I mean... I'm just...
Mondo...it seems like you haven't injured yourself today. So...that's good.
Do I *look* like someone who hurts himself regularly?
N-No, it's not like I don't trust you... That's not what I mean! I saw where you got hurt before, so I got worried...I don't think you're a klutz like me!
Hey, relax. I'm not mad or anything.
S-Sorry...when I see someone like you, I get nervous...
What, my face scare you? I can control my temper well enough, but I can't do shit about my face.
Th-That's not what I meant...sorry!
Oh...I apologized again!
You're pushing it...but I'm not gonna yell at you. I've decided to really try to keep that rage in check.
I'll try not to cry or apologize too much in front of you, so...please forgive me...
Right. Good luck.
Mondo's scary...but you felt like you were able to talk with him a little...
I'm going to keep going till the hallway
I'm sorry if it's a nosy question, but...have you been taking baths, Toko?
N-Not in a while... What about it? Are you trying to say I smell like an ugly bitch!?
Um...that's not what I meant. By taking baths and maintaining good hygiene...you reduce the risk of getting infections... If you wash too much, you'll damage your skin and wash away good bacteria, so you need to—
I-I know that already!
But also, um...if you're dusty all the time, then...
What are you trying to say!? Spit it out already...
Gettin' covered in dust makes me sneeze!
Uhhh... Genocide Jack...
Hey! Don't cry! It's not like I'm gonna eat you or something!
I-I'm sorry for being so nosy! I'll apologize, so...please don't hurt me!
I don't wanna cut up any chicks!
Because you were talking to Toko, it took you a while to get back to the dining hall...
I'm going to make it all the way back
I-I finally made it back...
Huh? Mikan? You went to buy some things? If you needed a hand, you should've just called for us!
But...this was my job...so I thought I should do my best...
Hmph...even if you're not an athlete, I'll support you. Because you're my classmate.
Nekomaru...thank you so much!
It's not just me. Everyone in our class would've gladly helped out.
Then...from now on, when I need help, I'll just ask everyone. Ehehe...
Hey, you're late pig barf! You've got guts to make me wait!
As punishment...how about you clean the whole place all by yourself? Yeah, and for tomorrow's school cleaning...how about you do that by yourself, too?
Wh-What? Why are you guys all quiet? Hey, cut it out. It's creepy.
...Everyone cleaned up after the party together!
Appearances in Seasonal Events for Other Characters
Your last winter at the academy... You're having a Christmas party with your classmates today! You plan on telling your classmates the truth about yourself at the party... The preparations for the party are nearly complete, but something's bothering you...
It looks like not everyone is here yet...
You're right...there are a couple people who aren't here...even though it's about to start...
They may have lost track of time... Some of them spend too much time in their rooms.
Um...then...should I go get them?
S-Sure! Please continue leading the preparations, Byakuya!
Ehehe...it's a party, after all. We want everyone in class to be together. I never would have felt like this before...
Oh...s-sorry! We don't have time for me to be talking about myself like that!
No...don't worry about it. I feel the same way. I want to stay classmates with everyone... It's hard to believe it'll come to an end soon.
L-Let's be sure to make this party fun, okay? I'll do anything! Um...should I tie myself up with Christmas lights? Or maybe I'll be the plate for the cake?
Don't worry about that. Just enjoy yourself.
Huh? Is that okay?
That doesn't matter. All of us classmates are equals.
Uh... Thank you so much... Then, I'll go get the others...
Yes, please do...and be careful not to trip.
I-I'll be careful!
As soon as Mikan left the dining hall, you heard her scream and a loud crash...
Today is the summer sports festival, but...running and sweating doesn't suit you! Instead, let's place bets with other students over the results of boys basketball! As you are gathering participants, someone catches your eye. Who do you see?
You there, would you like to join?
Th-Thank you so much for talking to me!
I am betting on the outcome of this basketball game. Care to make a bet?
B-Betting...? Hnnn... Um, I'm really grateful you invited me, but... I just came here to drop off some students... I need to get back to the Nurse's Office...
S-Sorry! I'm so sorry I couldn't be any help to you!
Today is the sports festival... You were in the relay race, until Monokuma barged in! You were able to stop him and let the runners continue their race, but... Monokuma ran away! Monokuma might disrupt the other events as well... What should you do to catch him?
I should use this time to treat my injuries
Phew...I heard that Sakura fought with Monokuma, so I brought the first aid kit...
It's merely a scratch, I'm used to such injuries. I'll deal with it later.
But umm...c-can you show it to me first? Even if it's just a little scratch, if it gets infected, you could get sick.
Heeeee! Um, um... I'm sorry if I'm being a bother!
No, it's just...you're absolutely right. Even the strongest of us can fall ill! I was wrong to doubt your ability. I leave it to you to heal me.
Your last winter at the academy... Graduation will be here before you know it. But save your sadness for graduation day! Right now, you're feeling pumped as ever! So, what will you do today?
I'll go help Mikan, who's always busy!
Ugh, owww... I-I fell...
M-Mikan! Are you okay!?
Ahhh, Tenko... P-Please heeeelp!
Leave it to me! Grab on!
O-Okay! Ughhh, th-thank you so much. I'm so sorry I embarrassed myself in front of you.
Please, don't worry about it! I'm glad I was able to help you! Helping girls is a given! And helping girls in distress is even more of a given! I'm Tenko Chabashira, hero of justice! Saving girls and crushing men is what I do best!
H-Hero of justice?
Oops...keep that a secret. Although, I'm sure it's no big deal to tell that to a wonderful girl like you, Mikan.
Of course! You're always doing your part in the health committee and helping everyone!
N-No way... This is the first time...anyone has said that to me... C-Can you say it...again?
You're a wonderful girl, Mikan!
I'm sure there are times when tears are necessary, but please smile! A girl's smile is the best reward for a Hero of Justice!
You accomplished a great feat as the Hero of Justice today!
