So, like people guessed, the killer was

The reporter, Heita Mamemomi, whose breakdown involved him spinning his camera and being tossed by Haori and Susato.

I hate to admit it, but I'm struggling... struggling to understand name puns!

Knowing Takumi, it's entirely possible that he just came up with some random words/sounds and stuck them together to make names. But I would think there's more to it than that...

That said,
Spoiler: character name
"Mamemomi Heita" really does just sound like a bunch of gibberish. And no, I couldn't find any particular meaning behind the kanji in his name either. I truly believe his name was created just so Souseki could make a fool out of himself on the stand by revealing it.


As for Haori, well, a 'haori' is a type of robe that's primarily worn by males, and it's more of a jacket-robe kind of thing. What she's wearing is not that. But hey, if a certain someone gets to dress up as a guy, why not have a girl whose name is a pun on something male? Besides, that family name, Murasame, has some real impact considering it's both the name of some historical figures and a famous legend of a bladesmith.
Spoiler: minor one from pre-trial
Besides, I think people are just going to start shipping her with Susato anyway.

Help! My parents are Phoenix Wright & Miles Edgeworth! Er, I mean they're irresponsible drunks!

I mean, in all fairness...
Spoiler:
It kind of feels like the game is actively shipping Haori and Susato together, with how they seemed to be in a contest of who can flatter the other more. That, and as mentioned before how they toss the case one culprit together. Like I said in the chat, Haori has a prominent place in the key art. So she will probably appear again, connected to Susato.


On a related note to the above, did anyone else completely lose it when
Spoiler:
The Judge came out of nowhere to also toss the culprit? I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. That being said, it's very suspicious that's he's only the second judge to ever get a name, counting Justine Courtney.

I have a suggestion.

Spoiler: character name
Could it be "mame"=diligently/devotedly, and "momi" (the gerund form of momu)= to argue/fight, and heita could be "hater"?


Is there any chance of the footage from today's stream being posted anywhere? I missed large chunks of it due to being at work, and I ordered a physical copy so it'll take a while to reach me :acro:

Spoiler: response, major case spoilers
They're loosely related in some way, true, but I don't think that's it. The way he kept repeating his last name over and over and that it's usually highlighted in red may either suggest it has plot significance down the line or that it's meant to be said as a tongue twister. And while he was angry with Jezail, I don't think "hater" really applies to him. If we're to believe him, it was a spur of the moment murder, not a planned one.

That said, I can see there being more to him than meets the eye. Perhaps he'll come back into play in a later case?

Seconded. I was there for most of the stream, but due to lag and bad connections, I missed a good deal too. :(

Just started the case. At the second testimony.

Spoiler:
I don't really get why Haori removed the knife from the victim since she's a medical student if it would just cause her to loose more blood. In fact, that would just cement herself as the real killer technically, right? But I bet the contradiction lies in the last statement with the motive.

Though I swear if the journalist didn't do it I'll be super disappointed.

Also, 'unnecessary feelings' lol

Wait, where is there a line about unnecessary feelings? Because knowing Shu Takumi, he would totally do that on purpose just to mess with his audience.

At the start. Poor Haori is very confused about her best friend looking so....'gallant'.

So is Jezail's "謎は女を綺麗にするの" a direct Conan reference?

Forgot about this game somehow. Continuing on with it. At the
Spoiler:
4th
testimony now.

Spoiler:
Man, like I thought, the journalist did it. And the fountain pen is definite proof. Glad I called it.

Susato's sprites are gold. I like her confident sprite, but also the one where she's pointing but confused.

The new music for the journalist is also good. The new eccentric theme, I believe.

It feels weird how Susato didn't know what a journalist was. Lol at calling him a scumbag for peeking in though.

I can't wait to see what Natsume is hiding. Or how it's even relevant to the case. Man, this just keeps getting better and better.


I dunno why I'm taking so long to finish this though. Next time I play this is when I'm finishing it for good. This is just the first case, after all. And it's better paced than DGS1's first case so far, too.

Actually

Mamemomi has his own unique theme. It's kind of weird that he does, given that it only plays once or twice.

Something something please localize DGS.

Huh, weird.
Anyway I finished the case about a week or so ago. Thoughts below.
Spoiler: D2-1
Man this case got intense fast. The journalist was a good villain. His confrontation didn't drag on as much as Jezail's at least. His breakdown was great.

Saddest part of the case by far was Auchi's breakdown. I gave a small prayer to him. Absolutely tragic. One of the best AA antiheroes by far.

Lots of suspicious stuff here too. Most of all the judge, Jigoku I believe his name was. Him even having a name is suspect. Plus the way he tossed the journalist so easily. He's going to kill sooner or later.

Still, this was a pretty good first case. I'd say it's pretty close to 6-1 currently.

I'll probably start The Memoirs of the Clouded Kokoro next month. Not a fan of D-4, probably not going to be a fan of this either.
