Hey there folks, the sequel to my Super Danganronpa Another AU story has arrived and a few things I wanna make clear.
First off, since Teruya was killed in the first AU, he will be replaced with another male OC that I've created for this sequel. There will be some changes made and the alternative victims and culprits have been chosen, although the story's final chapter forced me to change a few things around.
Finally, just like in the previous story, this will have a harem and I've already chosen which five will be in the harem, although I had to make a VERY tough choice not to include one of them.
Anyways, that's all I have for now, let's begin the sequel!
Island Of Mystery
"Hey, have they logged in?"
"Yes, all of them are inside."
"Good, we need to find out the one behind all this, and see whose a member of Void and who isn't."
"We'll have to rely on 'that' person to make sure history doesn't repeat itself."
"Agreed, we don't wanna lose the real deal here, like that lucky boy."
"Yeah, but it's not just him...among them is someone who went through the same experience I went through."
"You mean that guy who was chosen as part of the international exchange like you were?"
"Yeah...I hope he finds a way to come out on top."
It felt like forever, but I started hearing the sounds of calm waves and a few seagulls from far away, and an unknown voice.
"Hello...are you alright?"
There was no reply, since I was somehow fast asleep and unconscious.
"Umm, can you hear me?"
I opened my eyes and I saw a young guy with orange hair, looking down on me.
"Huh?!" I blinked.
"You seem...startled." He said. "Not surprising I guess. I don't even know what the heck is going on."
"Um...me neither." I replied. "Could you help me up?"
"Oh, sure thing." He offered his hand out and I slowly got up to my feet.
I looked around me, trying to make sense of where I was. "Huh? Is this some kind of beach?"
"Yeah, but I'm just as confused as you are." He replied. "Hey, are you okay, you don't look so good?"
"Well, if I had a mirror, maybe I would know." I sighed.
I tried to think back on what might have happened, but I couldn't remember anything, it was as if my brain just had a clear out of information. At least I still had the knowledge of my background and my talent, which something or someone said was an interesting one. I am Owen Rogers, the Ultimate Songwriter, and it's thanks to me that many artists and bands around the world have found success with well-written songs, although I was always given credit for doing so.
"Anyways, whereabouts are we?" I asked.
"I'm sorry, I don't know either." He answered. "I just woke up and I was on this island."
"And are we the only ones here?"
He shook his head. "No, there was a girl who was nearby, but someone else found her. So I went around and then, I saw you laying here."
"Well, at least we're not alone."
He sighed. "I can't believe something like this happening on our first day of school."
"First day of school? You mean we're students?"
"Yeah, I'm a student at Hope's Peak Academy, nice to meet you."
I smiled, relaxing a little. "Oh! Hope's Peak Academy! So that's why I can still remember my talent." I held my hand out to him. "I'm Owen Rogers, Ultimate Songwriter. It may not sound like a cool talent, but many artists and bands have always credited me for giving them success."
"Songwriter? That's sounds really cool." He smiled back as he shook my hand. "Oh, I'm Yuki Maeda, Ultimate Lucky Student. Although I don't think you can call it a talent."
Having luck as a talent? That's an unusual talent. Maybe he got picked to be a student by winning a lottery or something.
"So you're a songwriter?" Yuuki asked. "Does that mean you write songs for just about any musician?"
"Well, I guess it depends on the client and what label they represent since there are many record companies around the world." I answered. "Thanks to my contacts being reasonable, I'm able to help them out with writing a song and then they do the rest whilst remembering to credit me. You know, royalties and all that."
"Oh I see, but still, what a way to spend our first day of school with the other new students."
I then thought back to the main topic. "Oh yeah, speaking of others, you said there was a girl who was found by someone else. Do you know where they went?"
"I'm not sure, I think the rest of our class is out here somewhere."
"Then, shall we go and look for them?"
Yuki nodded. "Yeah, I'll come with you. Two heads are better than one."
'Two heads, huh?' I thought. 'Yuki seems like a nice guy, I wonder what the other students are like.'
We walked along the beachside, hoping to find if there were others nearby, and we made small talk whilst talking.
"I guess you're familiar with being a freshman students, Owen?" He asked. "It's what we are when we're first year students."
"Sort of, although you can tell by my name that I'm not from around here." I replied.
"That's okay, the only thing I remember was that I was scouted to attend Hope's Peak Academy and they mentioned about an exchange student from the states coming to study. I guess that means you're that exchange student."
"Yeah, that's me for sure. I remember getting a letter, saying something about an international exchange program and that I was selected at random, before I received a promotional package with a few things needed whilst being a student."
Yuki nodded. "Sounds like you had to go through a few loops to get here."
"Yeah, I suppose so."
We then stopped when we saw two other people that were gazing at a giant cruise ship that was nearby, it had the word 'Monocruise' on the side.
"Huh? What's a cruise ship doing here?" I scratched my head. "Is that how we got on this island?"
"I don't remember." Yuki sighed. "But more importantly, those two must be the new students."
We walked over to the two students, one of them was a girl who had white hair with a ponytail, and wearing a uniform that was mostly white and dark grey, she seemed to have an unknown expression. The other was a somewhat tall guy with grey hair and wearing a white suit, he looked kinda like an overconfident guy in a way.
"Excuse us." Yuki said. "Are you both students?"
The two turned to face us.
"Heh! Well, what do ya know?" The guy said. "Guess we're not the only ones on this island after all."
"Are you both students at Hope's Peak?"
The guy didn't seem interested. "I don't know about any of that crap. But if I know someone who definitely isn't, it's this chick right here."
"Well, minus the rude greeting, he's right." The girl said. "My name is...Sora, and that's all I know. I can't remember anything else."
Huh? She doesn't remember anything else? Could she possibly have amnesia?
"Does that mean you're not a student at Hope's Peak Academy?" Yuki asked.
"Well, it's not like her or me know anything in the first place." The guy said. "So who the heck are you two?"
"There's no need to be harsh on us." I replied. "I'm Owen Rogers, the Ultimate Songwriter."
"And I'm Yuki Maeda, Ultimate Lucky Student." Yuki added. "And what's your name?"
"Name?" The guy looked away. "That crap is pointless information. I'll tell you if you give me ten million dollars, deal?"
"A million dollars just to know your name?!" Yuki exclaimed. "Are you crazy?!"
"He's joking. He tried to pull that on me, when he woke me up." Sora sighed.
"Hey, a person's name is worth more than you think." The guy said. "It essentially represents everything that is you. There's no point in talking to someone who doesn't understand that. If you're not up for it, then scram."
Well then, this guy has quite an attitude.
"With that kind of tone, I guess you're talent must be wealth-related." I said. "Could you perhaps be part of a financial corporation?"
He smirked. "Heh, good guess, pal. But not good enough." He then turned and walked away from the beach, before stopping along the way. "You know what, I guess I can give you this for free."
"What do you mean?" Yuki asked.
"Syobai Hashimoto, Ultimate Broker, and that's it. Don't bother me again, unless you have something more interesting to tell me." He left the beach.
"Geez, that's an attitude problem he's got." I rubbed my head. "I hope that doesn't become too annoying for others."
"At least we got to know his name." Yuki said. "Say Sora, do you wanna come with us?"
Sora nodded. "Yeah, I think it would be better if I did."
I looked at the end of the rampway and saw a gate that was blocking the way in, guess we couldn't go in at the moment. We left the beach and walked along a soft path before reaching some kind of general store, we went inside and the whole place was empty, but with the shelves fully stocked.
"Well, loads of supplies that look like tools for a warehouse, but no customers or employees." I commented. "That's strange..."
"Yeah, that's kinda weird." Yuki said. "Oh, looks like there's two others here."
We went down an aisle and noticed a girl with long black hair and a pair of glasses, her clothes were pink although I had to question the slippers.
'Hm? She seems a little on the sleepy side.' I thought.
"Hey there, you're a student at Hope's Peak Academy, right?" Yuki asked.
"Yes." She answered, almost toneless. "You must be freshmen students."
"Well, me and Yuki are, but we're not sure about Sora here." I replied. "I'm Owen Rogers, Ultimate Songwriter."
Yuki smiled. "And I'm Yuki Maeda, Ultimate Lucky Student."
"Kokoro Mitsume, Ultimate Psychologist...I think." She responded.
"A psychologist? I guess you meet all kinds of people with various problems?" I asked.
"In a sense, yes. But that isn't important to me at this time. I'm wondering what this island is and where we are now."
"That's what I was thinking." Sora said. "Because all I know is my name which is Sora, but I don't seem to have memories of anything else."
"I see, well, that's why I'm analyzing the situation." Kokoro then looked at her ipad, where did she get that from? "There's no internet, so I'm trying to find another way."
"Eh, but how do you have that?" Yuki asked.
"You're wondering why our personal belongings are gone and that I have this, correct?"
"Yeah, you seem to be well aware of just about everything." Sora said. "It almost sounds convenient."
Kokoro nodded. "It's understandable to assume that. I just got one from here, I always carry a backup memory card, so..."
"So this store has more than just normal hardware tools?" I asked.
"Wait, shouldn't you...pay for that?" Yuki added.
"If you're worried about me paying money, you're worrying about the wrong things." Kokoro replied.
"In other words, our situation." I assumed.
She nodded. "I've searched the island already and apart from the other student over there, this place is void of an owner."
"Even so, it's not right." Yuki said.
"In that case, I should take some food as well." Sora added.
That shook Kokoro by surprise as she looked at Sora suspiciously. "What...are you?"
"What I am?"
"No...never mind." Kokoro then left the store.
"Well, that was unexpected." I shrugged as went over to the other student.
It was a somewhat buff-looking guy with gold hair, a black jacket and some kind sports attire, possibly a fighter of sorts.
"Oh hey there, heard you three talking just a moment ago." He greeted. "You guys students as well?"
We replied and said our names like before.
"So you are the freshmen students. I'm Hajime Makunouchi, Ultimate Boxer. Nice to meetcha."
"A boxer? That would explain the belt you have around you." I replied.
He folded his arms and smirked. "That's right, I'm a multiple-time champion in the world of boxing, but I'm just like any other student right now."
"He's right, Hajime was once renowned for rising up as a top champion by beating down professional boxers across Japan." Yuki said.
Hajime felt awkward. "It's kinda embarrassing to hear that. I've still got a ways to go, y'know? That's why I need to take good extra care of my health."
"Well if you ask me, I think we're worlds apart, considering my talent." I said.
"Oh really? So what kind of songs do you write?"
I smiled. "It depends on the artist or band I'm working with."
"Right." He then turned to Sora. "So is your name just Sora?"
"Yeah, she's having some bad amnesia." Yuki answered. "We just met her and apparently, she doesn't remember anything."
"Man...really?" Hajime folded his arms. "They say good memory is part of good health. I'll ask if there's anything I can do to help."
"Yeah, that would be helpful."
"Oh here, have an energy drink." He handed a bottle out. "It's important to look after our health for our age, y'know?"
"Um...no thanks." Yuki replied.
"I'll take the energy drink." Sora said as Hajime gave it to her.
"Anyways, if there's anything you'd like to ask, let me know." Hajime said.
We nodded and he left the store. We then left as well and walked on to the next area which was a huge park with a sign at the entrance.
'Utsuroshima Park.' I read in my mind before I heard my heart thumping. 'Huh? What was that?'
"Um, is something wrong, Owen?" Sora asked.
"Huh? Oh, it's alright, don't mind me." I replied. "Let's look for a few more students."
We came across one who had short light blue hair, she was wearing some kind of suit with a red blazer jacket, she also had one eye open for some reason.
"Oooh, cute kids detected!" She said. "You must be Hope's Peak Academy freshmen."
"Yeah, we are...also, I'm not cute." I responded. "I just have dark blue hair with casual navy blue jeans and a shirt with cyan musical notes, it's nothing special."
"Awww, that was very detailed of you to say. Nice to meet ya! I'm Setsuka Chiebukuro, Ultimate Billiards Player, I hope we can get along."
"Setsuka, I've heard that name before." Yuki said. "You won at a world billiards tournament before, right?"
"Right." She nodded. "I don't go to tournaments often. But when I do, I win perfectly. So that attracted a lot of attention."
"Yeah, I can sort of get that feeling, it's like with me and my talent." I said. "Oh, I'm Owen Rogers, Ultimate Songwriter."
"Songwriter? Hmm, I'm sure I've heard that name somewhere before. You know, I think those twins over there were gossiping about it."
"Yeah, they were talking about a rumor of an exchange student, I guess that's you."
I then thought of something I had to do. "Yuki, is it okay if I break off from here? I wanna talk to the twins she mentioned."
"Oh, alright. I'll stick with Sora anyways." Yuki replied. "We'll catch up later."
I left the group who kept on talking as I went over to the two girls, they both had red twin-tailed hairs with musical notes for hair clips and they were dressed identically as well, makes sense since they appear to be twins. Although, one was more 'endowed' than the other. The moment I approached them, they saw me.
"Yay!" One of them greeted happily.
"Woah, that's one way to greet someone." I replied.
She then looked at the other twin. "Hey, Kanade. Why didn't you do it, like I told you to?"
"S-sorry, Hibiki." The other twin replied. "So, a-are you a student as well?"
"Yeah, I'm Owen Rogers, Ultimate Songwriter." I answered. "As you can tell, I'm also the exchange student."
"Ohhh, so you must be the one we heard rumors about." The more vocal twin said. "I'm Hibiki Otonokoji, the Ultimate Vocalist!"
"A-and I'm Kanade Otonokoji, the Ultimate Guitarist." The other twin added.
"I sing for the crowd, my sister performs. And together, we're known around the world as Melody Rhythm!"
Melody Rhythm...where have I heard that before?
"Melody Rhythm...oh! I remember now!" I said with a smile. "You're the band who won the 'Breakout duo of the year' award in Japan."
"Yup yup, of course you've heard about us." Hibiki replied. "We were in the Top 3 in the charts."
"So to put it simply, I'm in the presence with two celebrities in the world of music."
Kanade nodded. "That's right. D-do you meet other musicians?"
"Yeah, as a songwriter, I get to work with various bands and artists and helping them out in writing songs for them. Maybe if we have the chance and things settle down, we could have a little talk about that sometime."
"Y-you want to write a song with us?" Kanade seemed surprised.
"That's very kind of you to offer." Hibiki said. "But my sister and I have done well to get where we are, so I think we're all good for now."
"Very well, then maybe I'll get to hear a performance from you two sometime." I replied.
Hibiki gasped. "A performance?! Get ready, sister. We're gonna show our awesomeness to this guy."
"Th-that will be impossible, sis." Kanade said. "We don't have instruments or speakers."
"Well, you're right, we can't perform here. Sorry Owen, maybe next time. See ya around."
"Y-yes, see you again."
They seemed like nice twins, although I couldn't help but wonder why Kanade was the opposite of Hibiki.
I then walked over to the other side of the park to notice a tall looking guy with short red hair and with an orange jacket and black shirt.
"Excuse me, are you a student at Hope's Peak?" I asked.
"WEAKLING!" He yelled.
That caught me off guard. "What the heck?!"
"If you're gonna speak, say it with all your might!"
I cleared my throat and stood my ground. "Are you a student at Hope's Peak academy?!"
"That's more like it! Yeah, I'm a student just like you say! You must be one of the new classmates, right?"
"Yep I am, the name is Owen Rogers, Ultimate Songwriter."
"Nice to meet you, Owen. I'm Shinji Kasai, Ultimate Firefighter!"
"A firefighter? So you have a dangerous job." I pondered. "I suppose you need a good physique to work in that kind of environment."
"Yeah, it's all part of the training. And how about you? Are you a proud songwriter?"
"Well, I like to think I am, but-"
"TOO SOFT! You need to say it with more conviction! Say it with me, I am the greatest!"
I nodded. "Yeah! I am the greatest songwriter...most of the time!"
He chuckled. "I guess that'll do."
"So, do you always talk to people like that, no matter their gender or age?"
His confidence then faded a little. "Well, not really...I get kind of embarrassed when I'm talking to a girl."
'So we have a firefighter who's shy with girls? That's a new one...'
"Anyways, you seem like a good kid." Shinji said. "I had to drop out of school before due to an injury. So I'm a bit older than all of you."
Suddenly, Sora came on by, she must've heard our conversation. "Can I call you big bro?"
'That came from outta nowhere.' I thought.
Shinji's face then turned into bright red...maybe I should leave him alone for a while. I left the park and walked to the next feature, there was a giant tower with a bell at the top. I went inside to notice two more students. The one of the left was a guy with short blonde hair, but he had some kind of magician's outfit and had a mask on which was kinda creepy.
"Um, you must be a student at Hope's Peak, right?" I asked.
I got no response, but then he wrote something down on a note he had.
"Mikado Sannoji, Ultimate Wizard. So that's your name, nice to meet you. I'm Owen Rogers, Ultimate Songwriter."
Still no response, but he gave a nod and then left the tower...what a creepy dude. I then went over to the other guy who had short black hair and was dressed like some kind of investigator. The moment he saw me however, he got out a pen and a small notepad before getting my attention.
"You right there, mister, stop!" He said. "Your interview begins now!"
"What? Since when did I became a celebrity?" I responded.
"You're a freshmen at Hope's Peak Academy, right? Please, tell me your name and talent."
"Oh, I'm Owen Rogers, Ultimate Songwriter."
"Songwriter? Now that's a scoop! I've gotta write that down ASAP!"
"And what's yours?"
He beamed with pride. "When there's a scoop, my pen is never far away. Ultimate Journalist, Nikei Yomiuri, at your service!"
"A journalist? So I guess you report on the latest findings and share them across the globe?"
"Only within reason. Such as getting basic information from the other students. I believe that is very important. As for the situation we're in, it's a wonderland of mystery, anything I might find could be the scoop of the year."
"But as for you, I guess being a songwriter allows you to get up close with the rich and famous. You gotta spill to me about it sometime."
He then walked out of the tower, leaving me feeling confused by his rushed randomness...
Expect these chapters to be either mid-long or very long cause I just never know when my head will be filled with either ideas or motivation.
Next time! The introductions continue and then everything changes when an infamous bird arrives...
