I mean...the first time I saw Chihiro's picture, I thought he was a trap. The voice made it even more obvious, but then everything else continued to make it more and more obvious.
Anyway, the twists were better than chapter 1, but still none of them were "shocking". It became obvious that Toko was the serial killer way too early on, Byakuya's too collected and professional to make the murder look that much like he was the one who committed it, if he were the one who committed it, and Mondo calling Chihiro a dude all of a sudden was way too freakin odd.
The room switch wasn't that hard to get either. I'm more curious about the other things I'm finding than the actual cases to be honest. Like, the letter, which sorta implies the students have been out for a year while this was being built around them. And then there's the talk at the end of the chapter like something else is going on right now. The Sixteenth student I am hoping is someone working in the shadows so it'd be more interesting, but my gut is saying it's "the populace". The reason why there was a seat at the trial that was empty, without even a picture. This sorta seems like a game that's being done for public entertainment.
Now, as for who's helping Monokuma? I'm thinking Celeste probably at this point.
One last note: Toko is probably my favorite character right now~ Man she is fun!
Also, so far, the killers haven't really had any redeemable qualities. I didn't even feel sorry for their deaths. To me they were nothing more than "entertainment"
Maybe the school mode will change that?
On the flipside, the game's doing a good job of making me feel for the victims. But, overall, I haven't become very emotionally invested in this game. I think it's possibly because they're being too forthright with evidence and foreshadowing to what's going to happen.
I am rather glad Byakuya took the time to spice up the murder scene, because gosh did Mondo leave behind a boring one
