For me...a person who is loved by talent... Detecting regularities among irregularities won't be that difficult. ...Ah, how boring.
~ Izuru Kamukura

Izuru Kamukura is one of the two main antagonists of Super Dangan Ronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. He is also an anti-hero in Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak Acadamy. He also had a minor yet very important role in Ultra Despair Girls, acting as the major antagonist of the entire Hope's Peak Acadamy Saga.


Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School - Despair Arc

Named after the founder of Hope's Peak Acadamy, Izuru Kamukura is an alternate identity of Hajime Hinata, a talentless student whose obsession with Hope's Peak Academy led him to be used in the "Ultimate Hope Project", which wiped his original personality and replaced it with the constructed persona of Izuru Kamukura.

Unfortunately, Izuru fell under the thrall of Junko Enoshima, who used him to murder the entire student council of Hope's Peak Academy in her first "School Life of Mutual Killing", which triggered "The Worst, Most Despair-Inducing Event In Human History".

Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls

After falling to the will of the Ultimate Despair, Izuru used a flashdrive to smuggle Junko's AI into the New World program, triggering the events of the second game. During the Tragedy, Izuru watched from a distance as all the brainwashed Ultimates brought despair to the world. The remnant of Hajime that had survived within him mourned for Chiaki Nanami.

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair

In Chapter 6, Hajime fell into Despair after he realized that he was turned into Izuru, the person responsible for uploading Junko's AI into the Neo World Program and murdering the student council. Overwhelmed by guilt, Hajime succumbed to a hallucination of shadows of Izuru demanding him to give up on the future. However, Hajime recovered his will to fight after he was encouraged by Chiaki's AI, and he blasted Izuru's words away with truth bullets labeled 'Hope.' Ultimately, Hajime reawakened to his talent as the Ultimate Hope and helped Usami defeat Junko's AI for good.

After going back to Jabberwock Island in the real world, Hajime looked the same except for his single red eye, a sign that he had merged with Izuru. It's implied that Izuru had chosen to live as Hajime--thereby restoring part of Hajime's personality and memories--so he could bring hope to the world.

Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School - Future Arc

Although he decided to live as Hajime, Izuru/Hajime still retained all of his Ultimate talents. People would sometimes mistake him for Izuru, but he didn't mind. Using his Ultimate talents, Izuru/Hajime cured the comatose students from the brainwashing of the Ultimate Despair and revived them from the Neo World Program. He also set off to the Future Foundation offshore faculty to stop Ryota Mitarai from using his hope brainwashing video.

At the end of Danganronpa 3, Izuru/Hajime atones his sins as the former Ultimate Despair before he returns to Jabberwock Island and lives in peace among his classmates.

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony



Izuru's dark brown hair is wild, long, and flowing, adding to the chaotic aura that surrounds him. His red eyes are piercing but emotionless. His expression is constantly bored; the only time he shows emotion is when Chiaki dies at his feet, but it's merely a remnant of Hajime crying for her. He wears a black suit and tie with black dress shoes.
