"It's aaaaaaall fiction! It's aaaaaaall a lie!"— Tsumugi Shirogane, Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony
Tsumugi Shirogane is a student of the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles, and the mastermind of the Killing School Semester featured in Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony. Her title is the Ultimate Cosplayer (Super High School Level Cosplayer).
Why She's A Lie
- She's a boring character who lasts until the end of chapter 6, and the reveal of her being the mastermind doesn't help.
- Her constant rambling about her being "plain" gets annoying.
- She hardly does anything in the game and doesn't have any memorable connections. She usually just follows others.
- She barely does much during trials and sometimes holds back the students, such as believing someone was brought back to life in chapter 3.
- Her "cospox" issue doesn't make sense. She can't cosplay as Kaede as she can only pretend to be fictional characters, who she knows is fictional.
- She has her fair share of fanservice, i.e. chapter 4 when she hands Shuichi a drink.
- In her Love Suite Hotel scene, her fantasy is with Shuichi playing the role of her stepbrother and she later on sexually harasses him.
- She tries to hold a candle to Junko and pretends to be the 53rd Junko, but it doesn't contribute to the overall story and comes off as a waste of time.
- Everyone being sad about Tsumugi being the mastermind doesn't seem fitting since they barely knew her.
- Once revealed as the mastermind, Tsumugi is just a generic doomsday villain who wants to see the others fall into despair.
- She is the one who killed Rantaro and framed Kaede, which can be heartbreaking to some.
- In the final trial, she chose not to vote out of cockiness, which ultimately killed her.
- She isn't nearly as interesting as Junko or Izuru.
- There's a chance she might've lied about everyone being fictional, making everything pointless.
- Hypocrisy: She says the world won't care for the survivors, but she cares so much about Danganronpa, which is a fictional show.
- She's willing to die just because Danganronpa ends, which is pathetic.
- Her execution "The Ultimate Annihilation" is dull.
- She has a nice design.
- She has a good voice actor.
- She represents fandoms in a way and their dedication to their beloved media.
- She could've been a good mastermind.
