DON’T HATE ON Komaeda! Here’s why:
Can we all take a moment to remember that:
Komaeda is diagnosed with stage 3 malignant lymphoma [CANCER] and frontotemporal lobe dementia??
Lymphoma is a group of blood cell tumors. The name often refers to just the cancerous ones rather than all such tumors.
Signs and symptoms may include enlarged lymph nodes, fever, drenching sweats, unintended weight loss, itching, and feeling tired.The enlarged lymph nodes are usually painless. The sweats are most common at night.
Now, the important one is this since many people just accuse him of being CRAZY and deserves to get what’s coming to him.
Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is the clinical presentation of frontotemporal lobar degeneration.
Common signs and symptoms include changes in social and personal behavior, inappropriate social behavior, loss of social awareness, poor impulse control and judgement, apathy, loss of empathy, mental rigidity, repetitive compulsive behavior, a decline in self-care and personal hygiene, changes in food preferences, delusions. Currently, there is no cure for FTD, but there are treatments that help alleviate symptoms. Needless to say, this explains a good deal of his unethical behavior and emotional instability.
- Other indications of his sickly state include his complexion, hair color and breathy voice.
- The Despair Disease had a much worse effect on Nagito than anyone else and almost killed him, presumably because he was already very ill.
The reason Komaeda feels apathetic of his classmates’ deaths, or blunting out “crazy” speeches about hope and being awkward in general, it’s because of THAT!
He’s ill people!
So next time you bad-mouth Komaeda, remember he’s a victim of his illnesses before being a victim of Junko’s despair.

A reminder Komaeda had a traumatizing childhood because of his LUCK!
He lost his dog at a very young age. Just being an elementary school student, he survived an AIR CRASH -a haunting experience by itself- and LOST his parents! Was KIDNAPPED by a serial killer during middle school. Lived alone almost ALL HIS LIFE, being UNLOVED, UNWANTED. Lost his sense of self-love because of the deaths caused by his luck!
And to be able to keep on living, he survives through his belief of hope!
Komaeda is cursed with his luck. It’s not a beautiful talent like Naegi’s luck. He’s the only one with a talent that backfires at him, unlike everyone else!
So how can you expect him to act normal?! Can YOU imagine being in his shoes! Just imagine it for a few seconds.
He clings to Hinata because he fills him with the sense of warmth, something he knows little of or barely at all!
Out of all characters Kodaka made, Komaeda is the most brutalized which is why I want the series to give him some sort of justice, any sort of happiness.
Because in the end he’s my lovely, adorable, and precious cupcake. <3
