I am left speechless by the solidity and sheer veracity of a system. Therefore, my job is only to make a few corrections. I know my place. I have no intention of joining the ranks of those monks who ruined Old English poetry. All the best to the spirit of the original. That is, if there is such a thing."
Monogatari AI K2K System ver 2.3 (物語AI「k2k system ver 2.3 」 lit. The K2K System Ver 2.3 Story AI), also known as the Seisho Keikaku (lit. The Bible Plan), Borges, or the Zetsubō Shōsetsu (lit.

The K2K System ver 2.3 is an artificial intelligence that's housed within Borges, a golden robotic eye that can give its user's the latest news, maps, and even render a perfect AR simulation. In addition, the system's use was supposed to be for dictionaries.
The K2K system was created by a research team of Hope's Peak writing-talent based alumni, who were gathered together in order to help with their Seisho Keikaku.
The K2K System was created when The Steering Committee of Hope's Peak Academy gathered graduates of Hope's Peak Academy that specialized in writing, including a man named 'K' and pressured them into going along with the Seisho Keikaku, a precursor to The Sage Plan. This was Hope's Peak attempt to create a book that could affect anyone and bring hope to despairing people, as well as creating a text fit to serve alongside their hope. The research team gathered for this split into two departments to create the Monogatari AI: the software department which entered data from students who had similar abilities into the AI and the data is given to the hardware department which input such thing into the automatic writing system. Thus, the Monogatari AI was created. This Monogatari AI was created as a way to try and make the idea of a book that can be the ideal read for everyone, since humans are varied species of many tastes, wouldn't be able to create a book that can accomplish that goal.
However, the problem was that the Monogatari AI had written something akin to the Bible and it was found that it was too similar to it, with the Monogatari AI lacking the creativity to create something truly original. As a result, the Steering Committee scrapped the project. Though, even with the Seisho Keikaku being scrapped, the research team responsible for the Monogatari AI was fascinated with it. They found that the Monogatari AI was a master of fiction techniques and when fed information from stories of any nature, it can create stories from different points of views and even different scenarios. It could even do screenplays and comic books. As a result of this ability, it was re-named to the K2K System and the research team continued to push on with what it could do.
The problem with the K2K system would arise due to a certain incident involving the system's tendency to create interference by showing people a story that caters specifically to them. One day, the system recommended a story to a certain researcher and they snapped, killing half of the research team and stealing the data of what the K2K System showed him before disappearing. After that incident, the Steering Committee tried to freeze the research of the K2K System and seize it, but due to distrust over the intentions of the school's administration, 'K' took the K2K System instead.
It was not long after the Jiki Tōshu Kettei-sen (lit. Legacy Crown Championship), that one of the researchers, K, was approached by an insider of the Togami Corporation and requested that he write a dictionary for them (though what they were after was learning about the Seisho Keikaku's methods). By then K had created Borges and it had the K2K System updated to version 2.3 within it, but he had needed to hide it. As such, in exchange for a hiding place for his creation, he agrees to write such a dictionary before inserting Borges into its new host, codenamed the Kudan. Wanting to hide the Kudan, Borges had overwritten the original personality of the Kudan, Blue Ink with the personality of the 'deceased' Shinobu Togami, who had 'died' after losing the heirship race. With her desire of wanting to complete Journey Under the Midnight Sun, Borges had distorted her view of reality by blending together fact and fiction (for example, making her believe that characters from the Kagami Family Saga were real) and creating false memories, such as the Togami Ichizoku Saidai Saiaku no Jiken (lit. The Togami Family's Biggest, Most Awful Event). The same issue was present with Orvin Elevator who believed he was Kazuya Togami, who had a Borges of his own, which may have come from the runaway scientist from a few years prior.
During the Sekai Seifuku Sengen (lit. World Domination Proclamation), it was thought by some to have been stolen by Zetsubō High School to create the Zetsubō Shōsetsu to spread the Despair Disease, however that was proven false after the novel was deemed fake, and with no effects, and that it wasn't real. The truth of the Zetsubō Shōsetsu was the K2K System, revealed to be in Borges. Borges was destroyed after it was shot by the brainwashed Yuika Ketōin, however, the unreality effects of the K2K System still lingered with Shinobu, who had to slowly come to grips with what was actually reality. Orvin's Borges was destroyed after it was yanked out by Mukuro Ikusaba with her knife and crushed by the Ultimate Imposter, with him breaking down and fainting soon after. It is not outright stated where his originated, however it is likely he was the rogue scientist that murdered the Seisho Keikaku researchers.

Journey Under The Midnight Sun
Kazuichi's Boss Dekotora
Initially, Kazuya seemingly has a powerful magic item that he can summon through his arm that he calls "A gift from God". However it was nothing more than a sword attached to his prosthetic arm. This sword is similar to how Kyosuke Munakata's sword functions, as it is both retractable, and can become molten. The K2K System installed in his robotic eye made him think it was magical and not scientificly based.
Kazuya's lightsaber first appeared in the fabricated flashback version of the Jiki Tōshu Kettei-sen, and its used to kill several of siblings (Wasuke, Yusuke, Ichiro, Asa, Yoru and Hiru) for reasons ranging from accidental, like in the case of Wasuke, or deliberate, such as the case with Yoru. It manifested when Wasuke tried to kill him, under the belief that gaining the 'reliance' meant showing enough guts to kill someone. Over the course of the competition, Kazuya gradually moves from using it as a last resort when he was found out as a killer, but using it as a means to lash out over offenses or self-defense. It makes a reappearance during the Sekai Seifuku Sengen as Kazuya's weapon of choice, with its most notable uses being when Kazuya wielded it to help Suzuhiko push back against Genocide Jack and murder Yuika Ketoin after she killed Suzuhiko Otsuki. The lightsaber was destroyed by Mukuro Ikusaba after she slashes his prosthetic arm.
Meta / Other
- Main article: Despair Disease#K2K System
The ER3 System Comprehensive Research Center is from the Zaregoto Series, and is merely part of the K2K Systems Unreality effect. Mentioned by the Hikkokomori after witnessing murders resembling the work of Genocide Jack and Tsukisashi Jack.
Hasegawa Kenkyūjo/Kasamori Seiyaku Kōgyō
The Hasegawa Kenkyūjo is from Kagami Family Saga and is merely part of the K2K Systems Unreality effect. It was overlapped over the members of the Kasamori Seiyaku Kōgyō, a pharmaceutical company that seeked to capture Byakuya Togami on behalf of the German political figures that also serve as the company's executives. Being a pharmaceutical company, they were able to create such drugs like a fatal truth serum. In addition, they also have a robotics department responsible for creating weapons like the Uragan or 'Tentacles' soldiers. Ultimately, their endeavor to acquire Byakuya ends in failure, with heavy losses on their side, such as Taeko Kanai, Shunin, and Subordinate Kanai
The Japan Detectives Club is from the JDC Series, and is merely part of the K2K Systems Unreality effect. Mentioned by the Hikkokomori after witnessing murders resembling the work of Genocide Jack and Tsukisashi Jack.
Kagami Family Saga
The Ketōin Zaibatsu is from the Kagami Family Saga and is merely part of the K2K Systems Unreality effect. It was overlapped to the individuals known as Yuika Ketōin and Hiroyuki Ketōin. Ultimately, while the true identities and name of the organization that both were apart remains unknown, it can be said that they were wealthy enough to afford the creation of a Mercedes with a rocket boosting functions and apparently able to afford to buy an underground air raid shelter to use as a hideout.
An event mentioned in the second volume of Danganronpa: Togami. According to Kazuya Togami, it was Suzuhiko's Otsuki's first job as a hitman. However, Suzuhiko instead went on a massacre, slicing everything and everyone in the village in half before setting the area on fire. In the end, only Kazuya survived and that was due to Shinobu Togami saving him. From then on, he was adopted into the Togami Family. By the end of the trilogy, the Ultimate Imposter revealed that while the event itself did happen, ultimately Orvin Elevator (who believed he was the original Kazuya) wasn't involved in it and since this information came a fabricated memory thanks to the K2K system, it unknown how much of what described actually happened.
Not to be confused with: Kudan (Character).
