...There's no way I could imitate him. And no way I'd want to. I am not my brother. Makoto is Makoto...and I am me.
~ Komaru Naegi

Komaru Naegi is the protagonist of Ultra Despair Girls - Danganronpa Another Episode, and is also the younger sister of Makoto Naegi.

In the anime, she is voiced by Aya Uchida in the Japanese version of the anime, legendary voice actress Cherami Leigh in the game Ultra Despair Girls, and by Alexis Tipton in the English version of the anime.

Appearance

Komaru has short dark brown hair and desaturated green eyes. She also sports an ahoge, similar to that of her brother's.

When she was in the motivational video with her parents in the first game and its corresponding anime adaption, her hair appeared neater in a classic bob cut, and she did not possess an ahoge. The uniform she wears in this video consists of a white button-up shirt, a brown blazer, a brown skirt, and a red ribbon.

In Ultra Despair Girls, she is revealed to be wearing the St. Tomoe Girls' Academy uniform, which is a sailor fuku with a white blouse, a red necktie, and a turquoise collar, line trim, and skirt.

Komaru is physically around the age of 16 - 18 due to the information gathered that states that she was alive while Makoto was "sleeping," which was over a period of 2 years, so she is possibly a 1st year high-school student when. In DanganRonpa 3, she is a few years older.

Personality

From what was previously seen in the original game, Komaru apparently is a cheerful girl. She loved Makoto, telling her brother to do his best while enrolled at Hope's Peak Academy. As of now, Komaru is shown to be a brave girl willing to fight off Monokuma robots as she tries to survive the world's current catastrophe and find her missing family. She is somewhat of a hypersensitive person, and is scared easily.

Komaru boasts childish traits, such as being naive, reliant and easily excitable. As stated herself in Chapter 1, she has a low image of herself, considering herself boring and ordinary. Komaru also states that she does not want to hope, because it will lead to "worse despair". But after being encouraged by Toko Fukawa, she wanted to at least try to escape again. Komaru is also a very gullible person. This is revealed when Toko says certain things that are obviously false, as Komaru easily believes them to be true.

Komaru seems to not be afraid of the dark. Even though she sometimes gives up too easily, there are other times in which she shows how stubborn and determined she can be. However, she has a weakness in complicated subjects such as basic computer science, but she does have moments where she is intuitive.

She also has an 'unusual' kind of pride. Whenever she is challenged with a puzzle by the Monokuma Kids, she would get worked up and act as if the Monokuma Kids were looking down on her. And when she solves their puzzles, she would brag towards them. Toko comments on how Komaru is overreacting with her anger and pride towards the Monokuma Kids and their puzzles, since she is solving a "kid's puzzle."

Quotes

Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls

Even with all this evil and chaos, I had complete faith in my world. And even when it felt like I was falling, I kept believing. "It's still okay, it's alright..." Then, I found out that 7 of my classmates had died suspiciously. I fell further still." But even then, I kept telling myself, "It's all going to be fine, don't be afraid..." But the realization that it was too late came to me like the ground rushing up to break my fall.
~ Komaru during the introduction of Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls.
This gun works as well on humans as the ray guns do against Crystal Bowie!
~ Komaru talking about the Megaphone Hacking Gun.
Unlike you, I'm... I'm just some normal, regular girl. I-I can't even do anything... No matter what I do, or how hard I try, I'm... I'm just gonna die here...
~ Komaru to Toko.
An amazing girl like you would have a plan for sure. No point in me worrying. Ever since I was imprisoned, I've been all alone. I couldn't depend on anyone else... So I'm really happy you're with me! So, so happy!
~ Komaru expressing gratitude to Toko for accompanying her as she faces of aganinst the Warriors of Hope.
You might be worried for whatever reason, but with you around, there's no need to worry!
~ Komaru calming down Toko.
Until I see my parents and Makoto... I can't die yet!
~ Komaru determined to survive so she can find her family.
I mean, there's no place to go even if we turn back... And I don't know what else to do. So if that's the case, the only thing we can do is move forward.
~ Komaru remembering the only thing she can do now is keep moving forward since there's no place for her to turn back to.
No matter what kind of reason you have, whether you're an adult or a child... You *killed* people. So many people... Like it was nothing. And I'll never forgive that...ever!
~ Komaru dennouncing Jataro Kemuri for the amount of people he had previously killed.
I see... I didn't know about that at all. I never thought something like that was going on... But...you guys are so amazing. I gave up immediately, but you guys... You guys fought and confronted the problem...
~ Komaru admiring Makoto and Toko's determination and comparing it to her own presumed cowardice.
The reason they don't do anything is because they can’t build confidence! I would know! You're someone strong, with talent, chosen for Hope's Peak Academy and Future Foundation... You don't know how people like me feel! You don't know what it's like!
~ Komaru to Toko about the Resistance.
But... No matter how pitiful you are, it doesn't mean that you can hurt others! To just treat them how they treated you... That's just going to make everyone equally miserable!
~ Komaru condemning the Warriors of Hope's actions.
Earlier, you said that there is no such thing as pure justice or evil... But even if that's true, a dream that requires you to hurt someone... I think it's wrong.
~ Komaru to Nagisa Shingetsu.
I...never thought of you or Toko as abnormal. You're just a little strange, that's all. But even so, you're important to me! No matter what, you're a precious friend!
~ Komaru calling Toko and her alter-ego, Genocide Jack, her friends.
If you're hurting, you can tell me. I'm an unreliable, normal girl who can't do anything... But...I can at least do normal things, right? And it's normal for a friend to help a friend.
~ Komaru offering to help Genocide Jack with her personal issues.
...No matter how scared you are, there are times when you have to fight. There are times when you need to stand up...and not be afraid of death. We have to do something before we lose something important!
~ Komaru quoting Shirokuma.
You're "normal," you're "weak"... How much longer are you going to use those damn excuses!? You're just happy to be a victim and ignore everything around you! Are you really okay with that, you coward!? Talent or whatever, that doesn't matter. No matter how much talent or power you have, you can’t avoid being scared or hurt! You let everyone else handle things that scare you and say, "I can't help it, I'm normal"... Are you really going to stay that way forever!? Maybe you can't help being normal... But you can't just keep using that as an excuse! If you do... If you do, someday... You're gonna lose something that's important to you, y'know? And after that...it'll be too late!
~ Komaru to Haiji Towa.
I, along with Toko and everyone here, want a happy ending! A proper happy ending that's super cliché and predictable, where everyone's smiling... So please... Please, let's make that ending happen! Let's stand up against this despair together!
~ Komaru to the Resistance.
A lot of terrible things happened to me in this city... And I have a lot of...bad memories... But I am so happy that I was able to meet you.
~ Komaru telling Toko that she was glad to have met her even after everything bad thing she had to endure during her time at Towa City.
I...won't lose... I won't give up anymore! I won't abandon anyone! I won't give in! I won't fall into despair! This town is doomed? I’ll fall into despair? No, that’s wrong!
~ Komaru quoting the iconic line among the Danganronpa characters "No, that's wrong!"
Until now, I kept relying on you, and I never really got to make decisions on my own. But I was like that even before I met you. I used to give up all the time... But the decision to save everyone was one I made on my own. Of course, I'm scared, and I'm worried... But despite that, I've made up my mind. I won't give up until the very end. I'll make sure I protect both. I think I got it from you. You were with me all this time. If I have changed... It's your influence, Toko.
~ Komaru expressing gratitude towards Toko for everything she did for her during their time working together at Towa City.
So the reason I've decided to stay isn't because someone forced me to... It's a choice I made myself. But I know that I can't just expect things to change right away, just because I'm staying... I know that I can't become real hope, like you... So...I'm going to wait. I'm going to wait for the day you guys defeat the Remnants of Despair and come home safe. Ah, but...you don't have to rush or anything, okay? I'll wait until the day you come to pick me up. I have the gun Mister Byakuya gave me... and I have my reliable friend, Toko.
~ Komaru having a conversation to her older brother, Makoto.
I won't give up until the very end. I'll make sure I protect both.
~ Komaru's final line in Ultra Despair Girls.

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

What turned you into such a ...well, worthless human being?
~ Komaru to Monaca upon seeing how the latter had went from a powerful and malicious warlord to a lazy slob.
Let's go back. You want to see your beloved Togami again, don't you?
~ Komaru suggesting to Toko that they return to the Future Foundation.
She's smart. Someday, she'll get it. Once she's done staying in her room all day, she'll come back.
~ Komaru stating that Monaca will come back from her someday.
You may be a little wimpy, but you've never broken a promise, have you?
~ Komaru asking Makoto if he ever broke a promise.
Don't worry. You'll be fine! I'll have faith and wait.
~ Komaru reassuring her older brother that they'll both be okay until they met again.
