You have no idea how long I’ve wanted someone to ask me about this.
Mikoto’s feelings for Reisi are show as really in depth and hidden almost compared to most relationships in k project honestly. He instantly starts smirking if he’s around, he’s only ever focused on him- and everyone else surrounding him is just a blur basically.
His attention is only on Reisi if Reisi is ever around.
Be it a kings intuition as Reisi is exactly the same, but the massive difference for Reisi’s feelings towards Mikoto and Mikoto’s feelings towards Reisi is the fact that Mikoto shows a much larger array of emotions in Reisi’s company.
In the K R:B novel Mikoto was originally shown as somewhat depressed and lost within his own thoughts. Kusanagi even went as far to say that he had always irritated look on him which clung to him like a second skin. After his meeting with Reisi, he became almost a new character, it was stated that he snapped back into reality instantly. Because of Reisi.
Reisi was able to bring Mikoto back to reality and was able to give him emotions he had never felt before, and be it a love/hate relationship non the less the ‘hate’ or more so ‘dispute’ they share with one another disappears throughout the series anyhow, but after his meeting with Reisi he feels alive again, the feeling he gets from Reisi’s presence is stated as ‘electrifying’ he’s never been met with someone that can equal his strength and mindset and Reisi is the only person like this. Kusanagi later remarks that he was listless and drinking himself silly afterwards, yet his irritation that he had at the start was completely gone. But it’s the fact that only Reisi is capable of making him feel like that, only Reisi was able to make him feel like that and give him those emotions and cause all of his irritation to go away, Which I suppose is why I primarily struggle shipping Mikoto with anyone but Reisi because of the effects they had on one another.
It should also be noted that Mikoto had no issue with being locked up in SCEPTER 4’s prison, and was even the one who wanted Reisi to stay with him at all times, and even began persuading him to do so. He knows Reisi better then Reisi knows himself, being the only one to carefully point out when he’s not being himself, noting that someone like Mikoto who never pays close attention to detail in anything (because of the effort) was one to notice a fault in Reisi. Proving that Reisi is very much in his interest.
I’ll spare you from me writing an entire essay and cut it off saying that Reisi gives Mikoto his emotions, without Reisi, Mikoto would be a irritated, bored, plain character who expressed little to no emotions throughout the series. Although he seems a little more closed in with his feelings towards Reisi, the closer you look into it, the clearer everything becomes.
It’s almost like you can taste the tragic backstory…
On a side note Shadow and Munakata are actually related.
Shadow lost Maria (his “girlfriend”) Munakata lost Chisa (also his “girlfriend”) Shadow hates Sonic (the main character) Munkata hates Naegi (also the main character) Shadow doesn’t play by the rules of G.U.N (the organisation he’s meant to work for) Munakata doesn’t play by the rules of the Future Foundation
Forget Yu Narukami, this man is a human form of Shadow the hedgehog.
Can you please do a reisaru scenario where fushimi actually like gets really mad at munkata for putting himself in danger and yells at him Infront of the alphabet squad?? Reactions from seri and such please
I can see this happening some time post-ROK now that Munakata is more
on a ‘normal’ level rather than what a King was, like his powers
still may be strong but he’s no longer invincible the way he once
was. Maybe King powers end up deteriorating more quickly than regular
clansmen powers too, so Munakata goes from being on the level of an
exceptionally powerful clansmen to more Totsuka-level but despite
that he’s still leading the force and basically acting as if nothing
has changed. Fushimi notices it shortly after the Slate’s
destruction, like he himself is still on bed rest and light duty but
Munakata’s already going out on missions despite his own injuries and
the need to adjust to his weaker powers. Fushimi clicks his tongue
when he sees Munakata returning with a worried Awashima at his side,
part of him wondering about Munakata and recalling their last private
conversation where Munakata gave him the mission to infiltrate
jungle. Munakata told him then that neither of them might survive
that mission and Fushimi finds himself thinking that it seems as if
the mindset is still there for Munakata. Maybe there’s some issue
with Homra too and Fushimi notes the look on Munakata’s face when he
talks with them, wondering if Munakata really thinks that Suoh
Mikoto’s ghost will be satisfied by Munakata’s death.
Finally one day Munakata steps in during a mission and almost gets
badly injured, Fushimi jumps in the way and saves him but it’s very
close. Afterward everyone returns to the office and Munakata
continues to be super chill about what just happened, like he shows
no worry at all that he was nearly killed. He does thank Fushimi for
saving him, very calmly and possibly phrasing it more like ‘I
appreciate your valuable assistance’ rather than actually using the
word 'saved’ (which would imply he was in danger) and that’s when
Fushimi just snaps at him to shut up. Awashima immediately scolds him
and the alphabet boys are shocked but Munakata’s expression doesn’t
waver as Fushimi coldly asks what Munakata thought he was doing there
anyway, he hasn’t got the powers he once did and yet here he is
running into danger even so. Munakata starts saying something bland
about a King’s duty and that just makes something in Fushimi snap, he
starts berating Munakata in this cold dismissive voice that gets
increasingly emotional as he goes on, like he’s sick of Kings and
their stupid sacrificial bullshit, Munakata’s not a King anymore and
he needs to accept that and stop running headlong into danger, he
might not care about the risk to his life but his clan does. The rest
of the squad is just left speechless, like seeing anyone yell at
Munakata like that is outside of the normal but seeing Fushimi raise
his voice so much, get so visibly emotional about it, that’s just
dumbfounding to them all. In the end Fushimi’s breathing hard and
angry and that’s when Munakata walks over to Fushimi and puts a hand
on his shoulder, apologizing for not putting more value on his own
life and that he did not intend to worry Fushimi so much. Fushimi
immediately looks away, suddenly embarrassed by how much actual
emotion he just showed, and Munakata smiles gently as he says this is
what he has his clansmen for, so if their King loses his way there is
someone to help him put his feet right again.
1: Sexuality Headcanon: Bisexual. Pry it from my cold dead hands.
2: OTP: MunaSaka.From my perspective,KyoChisa was very forced. Yukizome would constantly talk about how much she loved Munakata, but she literally did not show it at all. And when she did show it, she was in despair and was trying to actively manipulate him into going on a rampage.
The extent of Sakakura’s feelings for Munakata were shown, however–he literally died for the guy. We also see them interact much more, and how they work as a team. So I feel like MunaSaka is more compelling whereas KyoChisa is forced for the sake of the narrative.
3: BROTP: MunaSakaZome. They’re a supportive group of friends and I love them.
4: NOTP: Whatever the… ship name for Munakata/Naegi is.
5: Misc. Headcanon: Munakata is partially colorblind!
6: One Way I Relate: I, too, do not understand my own feelings, and will fiercely ignore them.
7: Thing That Gives Me Secondhand Embarrassment: My HC is that Munakata knows that both Sakakura and Yukizome are in love with him, but he just ignores it because he’s so shitty with confronting feelings, but honestly… he’s so oblivious. He also can’t think about both of his friends at the exact same time for some reason, which is shitty.
8: Cinnamon Roll/Problematic Fave?: Problematic as shit. But he does it because he wants to protect one of his best friends, which is cute.
The lieutenant of <SCEPTER 4>, Awashima Seri, is a very sensible person (save for matters of taste), so of course she would let out a scream when faced with someone who floats in the sky with an umbrella like Mary Poppins.
“<Kings> are just lonely, sad individuals, aren’t they.”
Fushimi’s line. In contrast to Yata, who looks up to Suoh and has nothing but honest adoration for the man, Fushimi reveals his own, jaded view on the two <Kings>, Suoh and Munkata. Though his expression after he says this seems to indicate that he’s expecting a scolding, Awashima actually agrees with part of what he says.
Ever since he was chosen as the first <King>, Weismann escaped to the skies without having the chance to make anyone his clansman. Ever since she became a Strain, Neko hid herself away without trusting anyone. But now, Shiro became “somebody’s <King>” for the first time, and Neko became “somebody’s clansman” for the first time. They were each other’s first companions.
Danganronpa AU: Munakata and Naegi have swapped their universes. So that would mean that Munakata would be an innocent egg, talking about friendship, falling in love with Chisa, whom is a cold hard detective and ignoring the distant tsundere lover that is now Juzo.
Juzo often tries to get Munakata to ride with him on his billion-dollar yacht occasionally he accepts but when Juzo tries to make a move Munakata either gets a call from Chisa checking up on him to see if he’s safe or Juzo gets too embaressed because of how cute and innocent Munakata is.
Naegi would be a stone cold leader, responsible for building the Future Foundation. Kirigiri by his side, lovey-dovey and energetic. And his bad ass side-kick (who is secretly in love with him) Togami, who punches people who annoy him and try to hurt or rebel against Naegi.
Naegi often takes Kirigiri for granted, as she is always calling him to “have a short talk” but he knows it will go on for atleast an hour but he doesn’t mind at all.
Once Kirigri called Naegi when he was in an important interview, he put the phone on loud speaker since he told her the situation at that it would have to be quick. But she shouted out that he forgot his “lucky teddy” at home and if he would like her to bring it for him (since Kirigri often likes to clean Naegi’s house.) He got embarrassed and paranoid that he didn’t have his bear with him, regardless of that he still got the position because of his talent.
Imagine the standoff between Munkata and Naegi in this perspective. This short angry guy is cornering someone who is taller than him, scaring Munakata shitless but when he tries to slash at Munakata he literally can’t reach any vital organs to do any serious damage.
Naegi then gets angry and calls for Togami to lift him up inorder to attack Munkata. Keep in mind Munakata has not moved, he is confused and scared, and after Togami gracefully picks Naegi up, Naegi starts slashing again and Munakata starts to freak out.
Omg Naegi will literally be Fuyuhiko
Can someone draw these scenarios please?
Also what do you think Asahina would be like? Or Hagakure?
I love writing things like this! Would you like to read more stories from me?
i always like to imagine juzo back when he was in hopes peak having a sleep over with his class and he just affectionately pats munkata on the back, unbeknownst to his own strength and ends up sending munakata to the fucking hospital
Okay, this contains spoilers for episode 3 of Dangaronpa Future arc.
I found Munakata’s assessment on Naegi’s speech
over the intercom to be very fascinating. He says, “He (Naegi) gave a good
speech, but it rings hollow to me,” or something along those lines. Naegi’s speech was eloquently spoken and, coupled with him revealing his
own forbidden action, was capable of giving many people hope. This is was Naegi
is good at, giving people hope.
However, Munkata found there to be no power behind Naegi’s words. If there is no
power/action behind words, then you are feeding people a false hope. And a false hope is the equivalent to feeding people
Let us change the context of situation for a
second in order to better understand it. A politician speaks of hopes and
dreams to his constituents, getting them to believe in him and his words.
However, due to the two party systems in America that keeps the government in a
deadlock, this one politician holds
no power to make the changes he promised. Therefore, this politician has given
his supporters a false hope in order to gain their trust/votes, which can only
lead to despair and anger later on when they don’t deliver on their promises.
Comparing Naegi to a politician might be a bit too
harsh, especially considering Naegi has no intention of lying to anyone, but
Munakata’s point is valid. The reason Naegi can unintentionally give people a
false hope is because he doesn’t understand true despair. The events of DR 1,
the mutual killing game was set in a controlled and safe environment. The
children had food, they had places to sleep, and there were strict rules
enforced around bed time. In fact, if they hadn’t tried to kill each other, the
school would have acted as a safe haven to protect them from the outside world.
Compare that to the no-rules, mass slaughtering
going on outside, well, it makes the chosen children from DR 1 look like that
had it relatively easier.
That being said, Munakata believes Naegi is naïve to
the real world. He had been protected from it for two years, unlike the others
who have lived through the harshness
of true despair since the beginning. Honestly, this is the equivalent of people telling college students this: “Oh you graduated? Congratulations! Welcome to the real world where everything is downright horrible! Do you remember those friendly debates (class trials) you had in school? Well, in the real world there are no debates. If you say something people dislike you’ll potentially get your head lobbed off!”
Therefore, Naegi doesn’t understand that in the
real world there are major repercussions for every single word you say. If you lie to people, intentionally or
not, then you must be prepared for how the masses will react. Since Naegi has
the power to influence others in this way, this makes him dangerous. The world
is at a point now where everyone is desperate for help; they will cling to
anyone with enough charisma like Naegi to help them. What do you think will
happen if they believed in Naegi only for him to, say, die at the end of this
series? Well, it would create a new wave of despair that the world has never
So, yeah, Munakata’s like, “Those are big words.
For the world’s sake you better be able to back them up with power. Power is
everything in a world riddled with true despair.”
This is why Munakata was willing to kill others,
kill himself, in order to eradicate despair. Power/Actions speak louder than
words to him.
MUNKATA PUSHED MY BABY BOY TOO FAR. ITS BAD ENOUGH HIS BEST FRIEND DIED BUT NOOOOOOOO U HAD TO TAUNT HIM ABOUT TI FUCK U MUNKATA U KILLED BIG DADDY U KKILLED EVERYONE IM GOING TO THE NUTSHACK ITS THE NUTSHACK FUCK U PUSHED MY BOY TOO FAR IM DYING SQURITLE
