Komaru Naegi is a character that appears in Danganronpa: Another Episode and is the younger sister of Makoto Naegi.

Prior to the Tragedy, Komaru had a cheerful and optimistic personality, somewhat similar to her brother. She loved Makoto, telling her brother to do his best while enrolled at Hope's Peak Academy.

As of Danganronpa Another Episode, Komaru began as a somewhat hypersensitive and quite cowardly character. She wavers between hope and despair as a result of her forced imprisonment. She doesn't want to have strong hope, because she believes it will be lost eventually, leading to worse despair. She has low self-esteem, considering herself boring, ordinary and weak. After being encouraged by Toko Fukawa, she gained a desire to at least try to escape again. While she finds escaping hard and fighting even harder, she is willing to fight off hordes of Monokuma Unit robots as she tries to survive the world's current catastrophe and find her missing family.

Komaru shows some childish traits, such as being naive, reliant, and easily excitable. She also has an 'unusual' kind of pride, as she gets really worked up from the puzzles of the Monokuma Kids and brags towards the kids when she solves them. She is also very gullible, which is revealed when Toko says certain things that are obviously false, and Komaru easily believes them to be true. She is rather innocent as well and doesn't seem to have much interest in romance nor sexual thingsーas a great contrast to Toko, she never seems to get flustered by handsome guys and just treats them like any other people. Though, she once tried to claim she has lots of experience with dating and sex because she was afraid Toko might make fun of her. It's been stated that in the past some creepy guys have taken interest in her, supposedly because of her gullibleness, and it's been shown that she isn't very good at noticing their intentions.

She has short, dark brown hair and desaturated green eyes. She also sports an ahoge, similar to that of her brother's, which developed as she grew. Overall, she is described as very plain-looking and "normal", which seems to be the same way people describe her brother.

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 Danganronpa Another Episode, 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. There's a school crest on the bottom right of the back of the collar, necktie, shirt pocket and the outer sides of socks. She continues to wear this outfit in Danganronpa 3 along with brown fingerless gloves and a belt with a small pouch.

[edit] Background

===Pre-Despair===Prior to the Tragedy, Komaru had a cheerful and optimistic personality, somewhat similar to her brother. She loved Makoto, telling her brother to do his best while enrolled at Hope's Peak Academy.

As of Danganronpa Another Episode, Komaru began as a somewhat hypersensitive and quite cowardly character. She wavers between hope and despair as a result of her forced imprisonment.

While she finds escaping hard and fighting even harder, she is willing to fight off hordes of Monokuma Unit robots as she tries to survive the world's current catastrophe and find her missing family.

Komaru is very close to her older brother, Makoto, and is shown to love him very much. In Killing Among Loved Ones, it showed Komaru and her parents cheering her brother on when he succeeds to enroll in Hope's Peak Academy, showing how supportive she is of him. They also have a similarity as siblings as they both have the same ahoge. According to Komaru herself, the two watch TV together, as well as share thoughts on manga they share with each other. She's also mentioned that they did argue quite a bit which is rather common in siblings.

[edit] Trivia

Komaru's favorite idol is Sayaka Maizono. She calls herself a 'Sayaker' which she explains is a term used by and for Sayaka's fans. Komaru states that she tends to buy CDs and merchandise with her monthly allowance. Komaru seems to be unafraid of the dark, though she says that she doesn't like it. Although Komaru is almost completely normal to what Toko explains as being "at a frightening degree", she does have some unusual traits, She appears to have an ability to sense and talk with ghosts. She has strange tastes in food; her favorite foods are sparrow's nests, tuna eyeballs, and kangaroos. She admits that she enjoys talking into electrical fans and that she is sorta bad at math, while her Hit List entry is examined. In Chapter 1, Komaru accidentally stated that she can't ride a bicycle. In Chapter 4, she somehow rode a motorcycle carrying Toko Fukawa and Haiji Towa, despite not being able to ride a bicycle.
