YMMV / System Restore

  • Broken Base: Was Sonia portrayed in-character just before her death? Opinions differ. The author went back and revised the relevant chapters in order to address this: while originally she fully assumed a Queenly Mask and showed No Sympathy to Kuzuryuu, the rewrite has her still smiling and trying to comfort the others and being far more sympathetic towards Kuzuryuu and Pekoyama. More emphasis is placed on the idea that she felt she had no choice, whereas the original version had her declare she consciously made the decision to kill Pekoyama and still regarded it as the best choice.
    • Apparently, Chapter 3, Part 5, in which, among other things, Souda gets the despair fever and wears Sonia's clothing, was controversial enough for the author to remove and rework it.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Togami's Armor-Piercing Question, when it becomes clear exactly how Sonia-san answers it.
    • Well now it is thankfully averted but the original versions of part 5 of chapter 3 had shades of this since both of Saionji's favorite victims, Mikan and Souda, were murdered at once making all of her past actions towards them much worse. Souda's death in particular had the extra issues of being explicitly labeled as a Sacrificial Lamb doomed to suffer an early death by his Japanese character profile (as a meta-joke in Dangan Ronpa 2) and Saionji in both the game and the fic itself (“You’re just a side character. You’ve lived too long anyway."), which made it being his actual fate here seem much less "funny" in addition to being killed in a manner much to similar to how Ishimaru died in the first game.
