'''Instead:''' Dojima admittedly tries the latter... By taking his nephew in to the police station, thereby taking in for interrogation the only person he knows could logically not only not be the murderer, but may well be the only one who can ''stop'' the murders. During this, he leaves his daughter Nanako home alone... As in a person who perfectly fits the bill for who the murderer is going to target. Naturally, while the two are in the police station, Nanako is kidnapped by the murderer, who is quickly identified as somebody who is quite evidently not Dojima's nephew.\\
'''And Even Worse:''' One of the options you ''do'' get is the ability to come clean and tell Dojima about your ability to go into the world behind the TV. He quite naturally doesn't believe you, and in fact becomes even ''more'' suspicious now that you have, in his mind, confirmed that you are lying to him. Too bad there isn't a TV ''right there in the room'' that the MC could walk over to and, I don't know, just stick his hand into to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is telling the truth about the murders. Oh. Wait. There ''freaking is''!

* The Investigation Team preemptively stakes-out the Maryuku Tofu shop to prevent Rise from being kidnapped. They, being idiots, also invite Adachi and wholly reveal their intentions to him, not caring that they opted to avoid the police earlier. After some time, an obvious stalker is caught sneaking up to Rise's room by climbing an electric pole. Yosuke, the eternal genius he is, thinks that is the evil entity who throws people in the TV, defying the laws of nature.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' A few people to stay at the shop and watch over Rise, while the others chase him. Since Rise is an idol particularly famed in this town and someone who just arrived, she must have a lot of stalkers and paparazzi problems. Hence it must be unsafe to assume the first suspicious person they see is the murderer who can fucking bend the laws of physics.\\
'''You'd Also Expect:''' Once he is caught, the Sherlocks would actually fucking check to see if the obvious red herring had powers similar to them and was capable of executing crimes of magnitude never before seen in history.\\
'''Yet Another Thing You'd Expect:''' Once the "murderer" was caught, everyone would be curious about the other world and why people were being thrown into [=TVs=] and why they have superpowers.\\
'''Instead:''' Everyone, including Adachi, chases after the stalker (leaving Rise alone) and straight-up accuses him of being a murderer of incredible magnitude without checking or thinking twice, thinks their case has been solved, and does not even care that what happened these past few days goes against the laws of nature itself.\\
'''The Result:''' Rise gets obviously kidnapped and this author loses all immersion in the game followed by a massive headache. While Adachi does receive an explanation for his boneheadedness in hindsight ([[spoiler:he is the killer and ''wanted'' Rise to get kidnapped]]), the Investigation Team has no excuse.

'''And Even Worse:''' One of the options you ''do'' get is the ability to come clean and tell Dojima about your ability to go into the world behind the TV. He quite naturally doesn't believe you, and in fact becomes even ''more'' suspicious now that you have, in his mind, confirmed that you are lying to him. Too bad there isn't a TV ''right there in the room'' that the MC could walk over to and, I don't know, just stick his hand into to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is telling the truth about the murders. Oh. Wait. There ''freaking is''!\\
'''Though, in Yu's defense:''' It was most likely for the best. Firstly, Dojima would raise all sorts of questions towards the Investigation Team as to how they discovered the details of the missing people as now he knows that Yu and Co are involved in the possible kidnappings/murders. Depending on how much Dojima knows or finds out, he may suspect Yu and Co as the killers of Mayumi Yamano and Saki Konishi, and possibly arrest them. Secondly, even if Yu somehow managed to convince Dojima and the entire police force that they were actually trying to save people and stop the killer, trying to convince Dojima that they can navigate the TV World would be another story. A further risk arises in that Dojima would be worried about Yu (for a different reason) and forbid/stop Yu from entering into the TV World - which may include Dojima asking his colleagues to keep an eye on Yu whenever they are on the beat. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Furthermore, being a concerned parent and all, he probably would ask the rest of the IT member's parents/guardians to supervise the children more as well. Now, everyone in the Investigation team would be restricted in their movements to be made sure that they don't do anything dangerous to themselves, thus less opportunities for the IT to sneak past and enter the TV World. Particularly for Yukiko and Yosuke, the former's parents (being innkeepers) would have the choice to ask one of their staff to chaperone Yukiko, while the latter's father (being a manager of Junes Department Store) would have the option to order some staff to keep an eye on the TV sets (and/or on Yosuke himself) to stop Yosuke and co from entering through one of the TVs inside the store.]] The risks of the above are admittedly unknown, but it would definitely be a further mess on top of everything that the IT already has.
