Danganronpa: The Animation s02e12
Titre original : It Is Always Darkest
Kazuo's video message, sent to Ryota following his death, appears to prove he was a Remnant of Despair. Refusing to run away, Ryota explains how Junko stole his brainwashing techniques, intended for a peacemaking anime, to create a Despair Video, hypnotising people into becoming Remnants of Despair. He then reveals he has made a "Hope Video" possessing the opposite effect, using it on Aoi to have her hold Makoto back while he goes off on his own. Just as Makoto realises that Kazuo was actually trying to stop Ryota from using his video, the group are forced to defend themselves from soldiers hypnotised by Ryota's video. As Ryota escapes and prepares to broadcast his Hope Video worldwide, Makoto is aided by the arrival of Byakuya and Yasuhiro, while another figure makes his own move.
