Akane Kurashiki | Zéro Évasion Wiki | Acheter Bracelet Bouddha

"Maintenant, qui suis (je) ? Je suis (je), la 9ème lettre de l'alphabet. Mais je suis aussi (Zéro). … Non, ce n'est pas vrai. Je ne suis pas vraiment Zéro. Pas encore. Peut-être. vous pourriez dire que je suis… (moins que Zéro). Zéro est mon avenir. Dans 9 ans… je serai (Zéro)."

– Jeune Akane, se révélant comme Zero du Second Nonary Game

Akane Kurashiki (倉式 茜 Kurashiki Akane), également connue sous son nom de code juin ou son pseudo Kanny, est un personnage central dans le Zéro évasion série, apparaissant comme un personnage clé dans les trois jeux. Elle est une survivante de quatre des jeux de la vie ou de la mort.

Elle est l'amie d'enfance de Junpei Tenmyouji, qu'elle appelle Jumpy tout au long Neuf heures, neuf personnes, neuf portes, dans laquelle elle sert de deutéragoniste. Elle prétend qu'elle a été kidnappée par Zero et forcée de jouer au Nonary Game avec tout le monde. Dans le jeu, son numéro de bracelet semble être le 6, c'est pourquoi on lui donne le surnom juin par Junpei, car juin est le sixième mois de l'année.

En réalité, son bracelet est probablement 0. C'est parce qu'Akane, ayant prétendu avoir été kidnappée contre son gré pendant le jeu, est en réalité le cerveau calculateur, complice et déterminé derrière le Second Nonary Game, Zero. Elle était aidée par son frère aîné, Aoi. Elle a conçu le jeu afin de sauver sa vie du premier jeu nonaire dans le passé, en utilisant l'aide de Junpei, afin d'éviter un paradoxe et d'assurer sa propre existence.

Dans Zero Escape : la dernière récompense de la vertu, Akane est souvent décrite comme « la vieille femme » dans les itinéraires jaune/magenta du jeu Nonary : Ambidex Edition, dans lequel elle est le cadavre trouvé dans l'une des salles AB juste avant le premier tour. Alternativement, pendant les routes Cyan, Akane emprunte l'identité de Kyle Klim dans son armure. Elle est brièvement vue à l'âge de 22 ans lors de la fin ou du début? fin. Dans La dernière récompense de la vertu, il est révélé qu'Akane est un adversaire de Free the Soul, un culte de la mort religieux avec une influence massive qui planifie l'apocalypse de l'année 2029 sur le site de test de la mission Mars.

Dans Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemme, Akane réapparaît en tant que participant au Jeu de décision. Elle est membre de l'équipe C, qui se compose également de Carlos et Junpei. Elle doit travailler aux côtés de son ami et nouvel allié pour déterminer le sort de l'humanité. Dilemme du temps zéro révèle également que les Akane (et Tenmyouji) dans La dernière récompense de la vertu est en fait d'une autre chronologie, apportée à cette chronologie par le Transporteur, l'Akane original de cette chronologie étant décédé. À la fin du jeu, Akane et Junpei prévoient de se marier une fois leur travail terminé ; Junpei rejoint l'organisation d'Akane Crash Keys et tous deux prévoient de localiser un fanatique religieux qui envisage d'éliminer toute vie.

Apparence

Akane en 2018.

Dans 999, Akane est une jeune femme aux longs cheveux bruns. Un peu de ses cheveux est attaché sur le côté gauche de son visage en forme de fleur. Elle porte une écharpe ou un châle noir, traversé par certaines parties de ses cheveux, une chemise noire à manches longues avec des manches multicolores (jaune/violet/bleu), une robe violette avec des empreintes géométriques sombres sur les bords et un genou marron -bottes hautes. Elle porte des chaussettes multicolores avec les mêmes couleurs que ses manches, mais pas dans le même ordre. Son bracelet à son poignet gauche porte le numéro 6.

Pendant le premier jeu nonaire, Akane portait une chemise rose avec un motif de fleurs sur une chemise blanche et une cravate rouge, un bandeau noir-bleu, une jupe bleue jusqu'aux genoux et des bottes noires jusqu'aux genoux. Son numéro de bracelet était le 5.

Pendant le Nonary Game : Ambidex Edition, Akane apparaît comme une femme plus âgée. Ses cheveux sont maintenant gris, soigneusement attachés en une queue de cheval en bandoulière sur son épaule gauche. Elle porte une robe à col roulé indigo avec des manches asymétriques. La robe est ornée de bijoux asymétriquement placés sur le côté gauche. Elle porte des chaussures blanches. Dans Dilemme du temps zéro, il est révélé que la bague qu'elle porte à la main était une bague de fiançailles offerte par Junpei lors du Jeu de décision. Cependant, Junpei a placé par erreur l'anneau sur sa main droite et Akane le maintient ainsi. Dans les routes Cyan Door, Akane apparaît comme K.

Dans La dernière récompense de la vertuFin ou début ? À la fin, Akane, 22 ans, porte une robe Free the Soul.

Dans Dilemme du temps zéro, ses cheveux sont maintenant tirés sur le côté droit et attachés avec un serre-tête chouchou violet en une queue de cheval lâche. Elle porte une robe une pièce beige moulante qui a un tricot torsadé sur les manches et la jupe. Elle porte un maillot de corps violet clair en dessous. Autour de sa taille se trouve une épaisse ceinture en tissu noir avec un gros nœud et une grosse boucle dorée sur le devant. Elle porte des collants marron foncé et porte des chaussures plates oxford rouge foncé avec des lacets noirs. Comme les autres participants, elle a un bracelet noir autour de son poignet gauche.

Personnalité

"C'est vraiment une fille sincère. Elle est ordonnée, gracieuse, raffinée et un peu trop sérieuse. Son niveau de" femme idéale "est à un point où ils devraient l'approuver comme un site du patrimoine mondial elle-même. Son cœur est délicat et elle est vraiment un pleurnichard. Elle espère l'amour et la paix, et croit que tout le monde peut devenir amis s'ils en parlent simplement. Elle croit aussi au Père Noël… et qu'Elvis Presley est toujours en vie. Et que le L'autre côté de la lune est utilisé comme base d'expédition pour les ovnis. C'est l'amie d'enfance de Junpei."

— Kotaro Uchikoshi (1)

Pour la majeure partie de 999, Akane, dans le rôle de June, est joyeux et optimiste. Elle est optimiste, gentille, intuitive et utile au mieux de ses capacités, même si elle peut être quelque peu excentrique et naïve. Elle semble également faire confiance et croire en tout le monde, et refuse de laisser quiconque se laisser distancer ou mourir, même si c'est absolument le seul choix de continuer. Fidèle à l'Ennéagramme de Personnalité "Peacemaker" sur lequel elle était basée, elle valorise la paix, l'amour et la tranquillité. Akane pense également que tout le monde pourrait être amis s'ils en parlaient et essayaient de mieux comprendre le point de vue de l'autre. Kyle Klim la décrit également comme "enjouée et presque féminine" lorsqu'elle a agi comme une figure maternelle envers lui. Elle a également montré qu'elle avait le sens de l'humour, une fois en plaisantant sur le fait de couper le bras de Junpei et en faisant des jeux de mots.

"Mon intention était de créer la pire héroïne du monde, mais cela a-t-il bien fonctionné? Elle est assez mauvaise, mais il y a toujours un certain sens de la pureté en elle, et elle est aussi noble. Je suppose… vous pourriez la classer comme un génie … Ses motivations sont trop importantes pour qu'une personne ordinaire puisse la comprendre."

– Kotaro Uchikoshi
"C'est le genre de femme qui fera tout ce qu'il faut pour atteindre ses objectifs. Même si elle semble être une gentille fille, elle complote toujours des choses plutôt froides. Elle tuerait facilement quelqu'un si elle en avait besoin. Sa personnalité est un résultat de ce qui lui est arrivé 9 ans auparavant… Peut-être y a-t-il eu des choses qui se sont produites sur ce navire qui ne pouvaient pas être montrées dans le jeu réel. "

– Kotaro Uchikoshi

Bien qu'elle semble être une véritable jeune femme présentée comme une "fille d'à côté", sa véritable personnalité est machiavélique, tandis que son personnage est défini par sa nature ambiguë qui varie selon l'interprétation du joueur. En tant que tel, Akane est un personnage quelque peu controversé dans le fandom de la série. Par exemple, certains la considèrent comme cruelle pour avoir menti à Junpei, trahi tout le monde et tué canoniquement deux personnes (9e homme et Nijisaki), tandis que les défenseurs d'Akane l'interprètent comme compatissante et sont prêts à lui donner un laissez-passer parce que la création du jeu nonaire était de sauver sa propre vie.

Akane ordonne à Junpei et Carlos de trouver le bon antidote en utilisant sa méthode qu'elle a conçue.

En vérité, Akane est très ambitieux, intelligent et axé sur les objectifs. Elle est la « reine de la connaissance aléatoire » autoproclamée. Un exemple de l'intelligence d'Akane est lorsqu'elle élabore une méthode pour trouver le bon antidote à l'infirmerie. Akane est un penseur profond et un peu philosophe. Akane se caractérise par sa forte volonté, sa détermination et ses actions, l'empêchant d'être une "demoiselle en détresse" ordinaire. Par exemple, au lieu d'être appréciée uniquement pour son apparence (ou de donner la priorité à sa vie sur la romance, la beauté, la mode, l'éducation des enfants, etc., en tant que stéréotype féminin), Akane devient une scientifique pour le projet AB et concentre sa vie sur des activités plus productives et domaines ambitieux; recherche et étudie le génie génétique, la programmation de l'intelligence artificielle, la mécanique quantique, la cosmologie, la biochimie, la conscience, etc. Elle sacrifie également une vie romantique avec Junpei afin d'y parvenir dans le La dernière récompense de la vertu chronologie.

Akane le fait dans l'espoir d'utiliser ces connaissances et de nouvelles découvertes pour essayer d'empêcher l'apocalypse de Free the Soul qui menace de tuer toute vie sur la planète. Par extension, cela signifie que le rôle d'Akane est de mettre fin à la souffrance. On pourrait penser que son fort désir de sauver des vies et de mettre fin à la souffrance lui a été inculqué lorsqu'elle n'a pas pu sauver les lapins, la traumatisant, mais aussi la motivant à empêcher que quelque chose comme ça ne se reproduise – la fin et l'élimination de la souffrance , un rôle grand et important mais aussi lourd et difficile. Il est également probable que le désir d'Akane de mettre fin à la souffrance ait été illustré lorsqu'elle a dû vivre les horribles conséquences infernales de l'apocalypse, étant donné son dévouement au succès du projet AB. En tant que tel, le rôle d'Akane peut être comparé à celui d'un protecteur ou d'un sauveur altruiste. Akane a également beaucoup souffert tout au long de sa vie, ou plutôt de ses différentes vies à travers différentes chronologies (voir Anecdotes).

L'interprétation des nombreux mondes.

Akane a connu diverses histoires alternatives (passées et futures) de nombreuses fois et a été comparée à quelqu'un qui a vécu pendant 1 000 000 d'années – en tant que telles, ses idées sur la moralité sont très différentes de celles des autres. En raison de sa capacité à voir et à exister simultanément dans d'innombrables chronologies, Akane a connu une durée de vie incompréhensible – peut-être des centaines ou des milliers d'années de vie, voire plus. Sigma développe sa capacité à visualiser toutes les chronologies individuelles du point de vue d'une intelligence d'ordre supérieur, en la comparant à une conscience humaine regardant des termites construisant un monticule. Tenmyouji suggère qu'elle n'est pas l'Akane qu'il a connue autrefois, disant que ses capacités et ses expériences l'ont peut-être transformée en quelque chose de non-humain.

Akane déguisé en Zero dans un masque à gaz.

En raison de sa capacité à transmettre et à recevoir des informations sur un nombre infini de délais, Akane est capable de déduire ce qui est nécessaire pour produire un résultat donné et de modifier son comportement en conséquence. joueurs, "June" pour manipuler Junpei, être une mère gentille pour Kyle Klim, être une mystérieuse amnésique connue sous le nom de K, travailler en tant que collaboratrice scientifique avec Sigma Klim, ou tout autre rôle qui lui est demandé. On pourrait penser que le vrai Akane est une combinaison de tous ces rôles.

"COMMENT OSEZ-VOUS TUER JUNPEI !"

En tant que "pire héroïne du monde", ses méthodes sont souvent peu orthodoxes, douteuses, gravement imparfaites, cruelles et violentes. Elle et ses objectifs sont éthiquement et moralement ambigus, en raison de sa volonté de permettre la destruction, mais de son désir de sauver le monde. Elle est prête à faire tout ce qui est nécessaire pour mettre en œuvre ses plans, qu'elle orchestre personnellement, et peut être homicide, vengeresse et manipulatrice. Akane a mis en place deux jeux de vie ou de mort. Malgré sa sagesse, Akane a montré qu'elle peut abandonner toute pensée rationnelle et logique face à une tragédie, n'écoutant pas la raison d'une autre partie simplement en fonction de son état émotionnel. Elle s'est également montrée capable d'être violente, notamment dans Dilemme du temps zéro, avec certaines de ses interactions, notamment battre Carlos à mort avec un extincteur s'il tue Junpei dans le jeu AB. (2) Il est à noter qu'Akane n'est jamais vue utiliser ses plans, même violents, avec un quelconque sentiment de sadisme.

Dans la salle d'alimentation de Dilemme du temps zéro, Junpei approfondit la personnalité d'Akane. Il dit que si elle pense que la moindre chose ne va pas, elle commence à débattre avec des "si" et des "mais" comme quelqu'un de plus âgé qu'elle. À l'école, Akane était étrange et faisait même peur à certains. Peu de gens voulaient être amis avec Akane. Junpei la voyait toujours seule, assise dans un coin, recroquevillée et serrant ses genoux. Malgré cela, Akane est très franche et « a toujours dit ce qu'il ne fallait pas dire », montrant son audace et sa ténacité à plonger dans le tabou, quitte à s'en éloigner et à se rejeter. Alors qu'Akane pourrait être considérée comme délicate, notamment en raison de ses fièvres et de ses émotions sensibles, Akane n'est certainement pas réservée; elle est déterminée, volontaire, têtue, résiliente, franche et motivée par des idéaux plutôt que par la réalité.

Akane Kurashiki et Junpei Tenmyouji.

Akane a un lien très étroit avec Junpei, qui vient du moment où ils se sont liés d'amitié pendant leur enfance. Leur connexion est particulièrement montrée dans la fin du sous-marin. (3) En raison de ce lien, Akane et Junpei étaient inconsciemment liés par résonance morphogénétique lors des événements de 999 et le premier jeu nonaire. Si Junpei examine le tir à la tête de Clover dans la soute, il l'appelle "plutôt mignonne" et Akane montre une certaine frustration. Malgré cela, elle dit à son frère dans la même pièce : « Nous ne sommes pas un couple ! Pas du tout ! Pas du tout ! On apprend dans les jeux ultérieurs que l'amour d'Akane pour Junpei est bien réel, car ses motivations et ses objectifs visent tous à créer un avenir plus heureux pour les deux ensemble, même si cela signifie qu'elle doit sacrifier son temps avec lui. L'amour d'Akane pour Junpei peut atteindre des extrêmes pendant le jeu de décision car à chaque fois que Junpei meurt, Akane entre dans un état d'esprit frénétique et vengeur, allant même jusqu'à assassiner Carlos puisqu'elle soupçonne qu'il l'a assassiné.

Akane semble croire aux théories du complot et est un peu un théoricien du complot, qu'il s'agisse de malédictions, le RMS Titanesque étant maudit par une momie qui y était stockée, Morgan Robertson prédisant surnaturellement le naufrage du Titanesque, William Thomas Stead prédisant surnaturellement sa future disparition sur le Titanesque, le Père Noël étant réel, Elvis Presley toujours vivant, l'autre côté de la Lune servant de base d'expédition pour les ovnis, la glycérine ayant la capacité de cristalliser et de communiquer, etc. Akane croit aussi à la théorie morphogénétique des champs, qui est l'idée que la pensée et la conscience humaines n'ont pas seulement lieu dans le cerveau humain, mais qu'elles existent ailleurs dans une dimension que les humains sont incapables de comprendre et que les pensées et la conscience humaines sont en fait liées et connectées. Akane utilise l'espace-temps de Minkowski comme modèle pour cette théorie de la quatrième dimension.

Akane fait une observation fine.

Dans la localisation anglaise de 999, Akane fait aussi fréquemment des remarques interprétées comme sales et perverties par Junpei, mais il est possible qu'elle ne les ait pas signifiés de cette façon en raison de sa naïveté. Akane et Junpei ont tendance à faire beaucoup d'insinuations sexuelles pendant le Nonary Game. La tristement célèbre "scène de l'ascenseur" en est un exemple. On ne sait pas si elle fait autant d'insinuations sexuelles dans la version japonaise de 999. Comme on l'a vu dans plusieurs cas, Junpei agit parfois comme un pervers, il est donc possible qu'Akane essaie simplement de répondre aux désirs de Junpei, peut-être pour construire le lien morphique entre eux. Son absence d'insinuations sexuelles dans ZTD suggère que c'est le cas.

Contexte

Enfance

Akane Kurashiki enfant.

Akane est née dans la famille Kurashiki, qui comprenait ses parents et son frère Aoi. Son père avait la double nationalité et faisait fréquemment des allers-retours entre le Japon et l'Amérique en raison de son travail.

Quand Akane avait 5 ans, son père a été condamné à mort pour un crime qu'il n'a pas commis – le meurtre d'une femme qui était fortement sous-entendu être la mère d'Eric (il est fortement sous-entendu que le vrai tueur était Mira). Dans le chagrin, la mère d'Akane s'est suicidée, laissant derrière elle ses deux enfants Akane et Aoi. Akane a plutôt appris que ses parents étaient morts dans un "accident" (peut-être un accident de voiture, mais ce n'est pas confirmé) et les deux sont devenus orphelins. Tout cela était le résultat d'un escargot qui a indirectement tué les parents d'Akane, et a également indirectement tué un chauffeur de taxi, un chirurgien et un jeune garçon nommé Sean dont un robot porterait le nom.

Son frère aîné Aoi est devenu son tuteur. Aoi se souciait profondément de sa petite sœur et essayait de lui donner le monde, même si cela signifiait qu'il n'avait rien en retour. Bien que les deux soient financièrement pauvres, ils étaient heureux ensemble. Chaque année pour Noël, Aoi lui disait d'écrire une lettre au Père Noël pour lui demander un ou deux cadeaux qu'elle voulait. Il lui demanderait de l'envoyer à une fausse adresse située en Europe. Parce que l'adresse était fausse, elle a été renvoyée avec la mention "Adresse inconnue". Aoi prendrait la lettre qui est revenue avant qu'Akane ne puisse la voir et lirait ce qu'elle avait demandé au Père Noël. Utilisant l'argent qu'il avait économisé au cours de l'année, Aoi l'utiliserait pour acheter le cadeau qu'elle voulait et le laisserait près de son oreiller la veille de Noël. Cependant, un an, Akane a écrit qu'elle ne voulait pas de cadeaux. Au lieu de cela, elle voulait que le Père Noël réalise son souhait. Son souhait était que les choses restent comme elles étaient pendant longtemps, car elle était heureuse de la façon dont était la vie.

Dans une école primaire au Japon, Akane était un paria solitaire. Elle était perçue comme « étrange » et est même apparue comme « effrayante » pour certains. Peu de gens voulaient être amis avec Akane. Junpei la voyait toujours seule, assise dans un coin, recroquevillée et serrant ses genoux. Akane s'est lié d'amitié avec un camarade de classe, Junpei Tenmyouji en 2012 et ils ont été camarades de classe pendant six ans. Ils traînaient beaucoup, allaient à une piscine, à une foire, jouaient à des jeux de boules de neige et de cartes comme Old Maid, et allaient une fois à un festival où Akane portait le yukata de sa défunte mère.

Akane pleurant devant le clapier mort.

En 2018, Akane et Junpei ont été chargés de s'occuper des lapins de compagnie de l'école et ont dû nettoyer le clapier tous les matins. Au cours du premier semestre, le dernier jour avant les vacances d'été, Akane est venu au clapier pour constater que tous les lapins avaient été brutalement abattus, après avoir été déchiquetés à mort avec un couteau. Ce qui était autrefois un troupeau calme de lapins pleins de vie, est devenu une image fixe de corps mutilés : du sang, de la chair et du sang sur le sol. Cet incident a beaucoup horrifié et traumatisé Akane et l'a fait pleurer, et elle n'oubliera jamais ce qu'elle a vu. Cela montrait la violence psychopathique, la brutalité et la cruauté dont les humains étaient capables, ainsi que l'attitude impitoyable de l'humanité envers le meurtre d'animaux innocents sans défense – un côté de l'humanité dont Akane ignorait l'existence.

Akane attend le tueur de lapins.

Lorsque Junpei est venu au clapier, Akane a cessé de pleurer après que Junpei l'a réconfortée et a promis de découvrir qui a tué les lapins. Akane a promis de l'aider, et ensemble, les deux ont décidé de tendre une embuscade aux tueurs. Les deux en ont déduit que le tueur reviendrait, car leur école gardait également des cobayes et des coqs et le tueur voudrait les tuer également. Chaque jour pendant toutes leurs vacances d'été, les deux se sont assis et ont attendu au crépuscule que le tueur se présente afin de pouvoir les exposer. Malgré le fait que le tueur ne s'est jamais présenté, Akane a toujours estimé que cela en valait la peine puisque les animaux n'ont pas été attaqués.

Les deux ont finalement réussi à découvrir qui était le tueur lorsqu'ils sont tombés sur cinq élèves de 8e d'une autre école. Ils se préparaient à torturer un chaton en l'aspergeant d'essence et étaient sur le point d'allumer le feu pour s'amuser et se divertir. Junpei a sauté sur les tueurs et a jeté le chaton à un Akane effrayé, qui a couru au poste de police pendant que Junpei combattait les élèves de 8e. Quand elle est revenue avec un officier, les coupables étaient partis et Junpei a été laissé au sol, couvert de blessures. Quand Akane lui a demandé pourquoi il ne s'était pas enfui, il a dit que les élèves de 8e avaient menacé de la blesser comme ils avaient blessé les lapins, et qu'il était devenu trop en colère pour s'enfuir.

Akane et Junpei regardent le coucher du soleil en 2018.

Les deux se sont ensuite déplacés vers une colline et ont regardé la ville, parlant entre autres de ce qui s'était passé. Au cours de la conversation, Junpei a donné à Akane une poupée "Pour-vous" nommée Junpei, car ils allaient dans des écoles séparées. Akane a souligné que la poupée "For-You" était en fait une poupée "vaudou" et que la nommer Junpei était une mauvaise idée. Au lieu de cela, ils ont décidé de l'appeler juin, car juin était la fin de leur temps ensemble. Ils se sont ensuite assis sur la colline pendant un moment, regardant paisiblement le soleil se coucher.

Premier jeu nonaire

Le Gigantesque.

À un moment donné, Akane et Aoi se sont rendus dans un hôpital appartenant à Cradle Pharmaceutical et ont subi un test de morphogénétique sur le terrain (l'expérience de Ganzfeld) dans le cadre du processus de récupération. Les deux ont ensuite été kidnappés par Cradle Pharmaceutical avec 16 autres enfants pendant 9 jours. En raison du fait que lui et Akane portent des uniformes scolaires dans le premier jeu nonaire, on peut raisonnablement supposer qu'ils ont été kidnappés sur le chemin de l'école ou en revenant. Clover laisse entendre que les enfants ont subi diverses expériences, dont plusieurs étaient désagréables.

À un moment donné au cours des 9 jours, les enfants ont été divisés en deux groupes et mis sur le Gigantic s'ils étaient un récepteur ou envoyés au bâtiment Q au Nevada s'ils étaient un émetteur. Akane avait l'intention d'aller au bâtiment Q, mais une erreur l'a mise sur le Gigantic avec son frère.

Sept sauve la mise.

La dernière nuit de ces jours, les enfants ont été forcés de jouer au jeu nonaire. Akane avait le bracelet numéro 5. À un moment donné pendant le jeu, les enfants du Gigantic se sont disputés et ont paniqué après être arrivés dans la grande chambre d'hôpital. Light, cependant, les a calmés avec des trèfles à 4 feuilles qu'il avait cueillis pour l'anniversaire de sa sœur. Ils ont ensuite continué à jouer le jeu. Akane a travaillé avec les autres pour résoudre les énigmes et a finalement atteint la porte 9 de l'incinérateur. Le groupe a paniqué en ne voyant qu'une seule porte, mais a été apaisé par Seven, un détective qui a réussi à monter à bord du navire et avait l'intention de les sauver. Alors que Seven a obtenu quelque chose pour les sortir de l'incinérateur, les enfants ont décidé d'envoyer tout sauf Akane, Aoi, Light et Nona Kashiwabara par la porte. Lorsque Seven est revenu, les enfants restants ont été tirés jusqu'à un évent avec une corde et déposés devant un grand escalier en colimaçon.

Hongou poussant Akane dans l'incinérateur.

Alors qu'ils montaient les escaliers, Akane réalisa qu'elle avait accidentellement laissé tomber la poupée que Junpei lui avait donnée. Réalisant qu'il serait risqué de la récupérer, mais aussi qu'il y avait une chance qu'elle puisse récupérer la poupée et s'échapper quand même, Akane a décidé de redescendre les escaliers en courant, une décision qui s'avérerait fatale. Elle l'a trouvé devant les portes de l'incinérateur. Avant qu'elle ne puisse s'enfuir, cependant, à ce moment précis, Gentarou Hongou, PDG de Cradle Pharmaceutical, est sorti de l'incinérateur et l'a saisie. Il la jeta à l'intérieur, plongea après elle et ferma la porte juste avant qu'Aoi, Light et Seven ne les atteignent.

Hongou a scanné les numéros de bracelet 1 et 3 dans le ROUGE, a quitté l'incinérateur et a activé un puzzle de Sudoku qu'Akane doit résoudre. Akane ne savait pas jouer au Sudoku et l'a expliqué à Hongou, à qui il s'est moqué d'elle et lui a dit qu'elle devait accéder au champ morphogénétique si elle voulait résoudre le puzzle. Akane, cependant, avait depuis longtemps perdu son lien morphogénétique avec Junpei. Effrayée et seule, elle a brûlé à mort dans l'incinérateur, et son frère horrifié a vu ses restes.

"Je regardais. J'avais regardé tout ce qui se reflétait dans ses yeux. J'écoutais. Chaque son qui vibrait dans ses tympans, j'entendais. Sentir, goûter, toucher… Je ressentais tout ce qu'il ressentait. Je savais. Je savais tout sur lui. Ce qu'il pensait, ce qu'il ressentait, ce qu'il ressentait… Tous ses sentiments, ses inquiétudes et ses peurs sont devenus les miens… Mon esprit, ma conscience, étaient en lui. A travers le champ morphique nous résonnaient, et nous ne faisions qu'un. J'étais lui, et en même temps, j'étais un observateur.

Akane pleurant dans l'incinérateur chaud.

"Cela a commencé avec un bruit énorme comme un coup de tonnerre. C'était il y a environ 9 heures. Une bombe avait explosé sur le navire sur lequel nous étions. C'est alors que ma résonance avec lui a commencé. Mon événement résonnant s'est fondu en lui et nous sommes devenus un. À l'intérieur de Junpei… D'une manière ou d'une autre, je me suis retrouvé dans l'esprit de Junpei, 9 ans dans le futur. Mais je ne me suis pas perdu… Je vivais dans 2 réalités à la fois. L'une était le présent et l'autre était l'avenir. Peut-être que vous pouvez le considérer comme 2 films projetés sur le même écran, en même temps. Finalement, il devient difficile de les séparer et de déterminer quel film est lequel. Cependant, si je me concentrais, j'étais capable de me concentrer sur l'un ou l'autre. C'est pourquoi j'ai pu saisir ce qui se passait devant moi.

Heureusement, cette issue de l'incinération n'était qu'un des destins possibles d'Akane. Cela s'est produit chaque fois que Junpei pendant le deuxième jeu nonaire n'a pas suivi les événements corrects pendant le jeu qui le conduiraient à l'incinérateur. En l'absence de Junpei pour résoudre l'énigme du sudoku à sa place, Akane n'a pas pu se reconnecter morphogénétiquement avec lui, ce qui a conduit à sa mort.

Akane a retrouvé son frère en novembre 2018.

Dans la bonne chronologie, Junpei finit par atteindre et entre dans l'incinérateur. Cela permet à Akane, 12 ans, de se connecter à Junpei via la résonance morphogénétique. Avec Junpei la guidant, Akane a résolu le puzzle Sudoku et s'est échappé de l'incinérateur. Elle a rejoint tout le monde et ils se sont tous éloignés du Gigantic sur un canot de sauvetage. Alors que Seven les emmenait à la rame, ils ont regardé le Gigantic couler alors que les 9 heures autorisées pour le Nonary Game se terminaient.

Clés de blocage

Entre 2018 et 2022, Akane a demandé à son frère Aoi de faire le point sur Cradle Pharmaceutical. En raison d'être une esper qui a vu à travers les yeux de Junpei 9 ans dans le futur que Cradle Pharmaceutical deviendrait soudainement une énorme entreprise, elle a dit à Aoi d'acheter des actions de Cradle Pharmaceutical quand elles étaient bon marché, alors ils ont fait une tonne d'argent quand il a finalement été cotée en bourse. Cradle est devenu un succès grâce au médicament Soporil. Ils ont pris cet argent et ont investi dans d'autres actions et ont augmenté leur fortune. Peu de temps après, ils étaient millionnaires et ont finalement formé une organisation appelée Crash Keys pour les aider à exécuter leurs plans entre 2022 et 2028. Il n'y avait pas que les deux qui faisaient tout car ils avaient des dizaines de sous-fifres travaillant pour eux.

Préparation du Second Nonary Game

Akane, Aoi et Crash Keys kidnappent les participants avec du Soporil gazeux.

Akane a commencé à se préparer pour le Second Nonary Game afin d'éviter un paradoxe temporel qui la conduirait à mourir. Elle aurait besoin de recréer le Nonary Game exactement comme elle le voyait à travers les yeux de Junpei, jusque dans les moindres détails. Une fois les préparatifs du Second Nonary Game terminés, en août et novembre 2027, Akane s'est arrangé pour que Crash Keys kidnappe les participants qui n'étaient pas elle ou Aoi en utilisant du Soporil gazeux. Elle a également fait kidnapper Teruaki Kubota, Nagisa Nijisaki et Kagechika Musashidou, et a fait digérer les bombes Kubota et Nijisaki. Akane a enfilé une cape noire et un masque à gaz ainsi qu'un changeur de voix, assumant ainsi son autre identité : Zero. Ils ont ensuite tous été amenés au Building Q dans le Nevada et ont reçu des bracelets. Elle et Aoi sont également entrées dans le jeu en tant que participants, le vrai numéro de bracelet d'Akane étant 0, pas 6. Lorsque la bombe sous le "navire" a explosé, le jeu nonaire a commencé.

Neuf heures, neuf personnes, neuf portes

Akane descendant l'escalier central.

Akane a été vu pour la première fois après que tous les autres joueurs se soient déjà rencontrés et rassemblés par les portes 4 et 5. Junpei a décidé de retourner à l'escalier central, où les deux se sont vus. Le sol trembla soudainement et fit tomber Akane. Elle a fini par atterrir sur Junpei, où les deux se sont croisés et ont finalement réalisé qu'ils se connaissaient.

Cependant, avant que les deux ne puissent aller très loin dans leurs retrouvailles, Zero leur a parlé ainsi qu'aux autres joueurs via un interphone. Les 9 personnes ont été initiées et expliquées le Jeu Nonary. Une fois l'introduction terminée, le groupe s'est séparé pour rechercher à quelles parties du navire ils pouvaient accéder. Akane s'est associé à Junpei, et les deux ont enquêté sur la porte du soleil, la porte de la terre et les ascenseurs de Saturne.

Le groupe s'est réuni à nouveau lorsqu'ils ont terminé leurs enquêtes et échangé des informations. Ils ont conclu que la seule façon d'avancer était de passer par les portes numérotées. Avant de le faire, ils ont décidé d'utiliser des noms de code, afin d'empêcher Zero de découvrir qui ils étaient au cas où il ne le saurait pas déjà. Akane a d'abord décidé qu'elle voulait prendre son vrai nom puisqu'elle a accidentellement révélé celui de Junpei, mais Junpei a insisté pour qu'elle prenne quand même un surnom et lui a donné le nom de "June". Bien qu'il semble que le surnom ait été choisi parce que son numéro de bracelet était le 6 et que juin est le 6e mois du calendrier grégorien, il vient en fait de la poupée que Junpei lui a donnée il y a 9 ans. Il lui a été donné en juin et s'appelait June.

Akane a de la fièvre après la mort de Kubota.

Après que son nom ait été décidé, le 9ème homme (Teruaki Kubota) a été invité par Clover pour son surnom. Il a déclaré qu'il n'en avait pas besoin et a pris Clover en otage, la forçant ainsi qu'Ace à scanner sur le ROUGE de la porte 5. Il s'est ensuite scanné et a plongé. Cependant, comme il a enfreint les règles du jeu nonaire, il a fini par mourir . Les joueurs ont ouvert la porte 5 pour voir ce qui s'était passé et ont été accueillis par la vue du corps du 9ème homme sur les murs et le sol. Akane laissa échapper un cri hystérique et éclata d'une fièvre soudaine en le voyant et s'effondra dans les bras de Junpei.

Akane pleurant après la mort du 9ème homme. "Pourquoi… Pourquoi est-ce arrivé… Pourquoi est-ce arrivé…"

Après que Junpei l'ait placée sur une chaise, elle a commencé à pleurer et à se lamenter sur sa mort. As Akane began to calm down, the clock rang and announced that it was 10 PM. Feeling pressured, Aoi tried to motivate the group into going through the numbered doors, but the fear that they'd blow up like the 9th Man kept anyone from moving. Aoi theorized that he only blew up because he did something wrong, but Snake corrected him and said that he just broke one of Zero's rules. Snake then shared a message Zero gave him that explained the REDs and DEADs. It gave the group the confidence they needed to advance.

They decided to split themselves into two groups. Their idea was for Ace, Snake, Clover, and Seven to go through Door 5 and for Lotus, Aoi, Akane, and Junpei to go through Door 4.

If Junpei chooses Door 4

In the endings where Junpei agreed to take Door 4, Akane and her group watched the Door 5 group go through their door first. They listened in on the Door 5 group finding the DEAD and deactivating their bracelets. After making sure everyone was okay and getting an explanation of the DEAD from Clover, the Door 4 group went through their door as well. They were presented with a long hallway. They frantically searched around for the DEAD before Aoi spotted it at the end of the hall. They deactivated their bracelets, calmed down, and looked at three doors next to them. Two of them, labeled B92 and B93, were open, while the last one was locked and had a Mars Symbol above its keyhole.

The cursed coffin of Amon-Ra / Amen-Ra / All-ice / Alice.

The group split up in the 2nd class cabin, with Akane and Junpei taking B92 and Aoi and Lotus taking B93. While searching, Akane talked and flirted with Junpei. The two discussed her fever, their kidnapping, their location, and eventually got onto the topic of curses. Akane told him of her belief that a curse sunk the Titanic. The curse was that if the Priestess Amon-Ra's coffin was opened, bad things would happen to its opener. The reason that the priestess was special was because she was very beautiful and that her body was preserved with ice that never melted. The two talked for a while longer before going back to investigating. Junpei eventually found the Mars Key and the Door 4 group moved on to the kitchen.

While in the kitchen's pantry, Akane mentioned the Titanic again, this time saying that the disaster was predicted in a book called Futility. Junpei promptly debunked the prediction, but Akane argued that it could be true, since a man named William Thomas Stead had written two books with similarities to the Titanic. Junpei once again dismissed this idea, and dropped the conversation as a whole when Akane supposed Stead's spirit had possessed himself in the past to write the books.

A glycerin molecule.

A little bit later, Akane, Junpei, and Aoi got stuck in the kitchen's freezer. They began to look for things to help them get out. When Junpei picked up dry ice, Aoi wondered how hot it would have to be to become gas and mentioned that it could be used to make an explosion. Akane answered his question, saying that it would become a gas at -109 degrees. Junpei got surprised that she knew this, and she further showed off her knowledge when Aoi asked why carbon dioxide isn't a liquid by saying that it can if it's put under enough pressure. She then went on to explain ice-9 and the story of the crystallization of glycerin. After a while of talking, Aoi got the group back to investigating. They used what they found to create a water bottle bomb and free themselves from the freezer. They then searched around the kitchen for a while longer, eventually finding the Saturn Keycard and escaping the room.

They came out into a hallway, checked their map, and then realized a grate that was blocking their path was moved. They went down the set of stairs behind the grate and came to the C Deck. There, they observed the Mercury Elevators, a long hallway filled with rooms, and a much smaller hallway with only one room. They entered the smaller hallway's room and found the large hospital room.

If Junpei chooses Door 5

In the endings where Junpei decided to take Door 5, Akane first wanted to go with him. Junpei, however, protested, as he didn't want her to have to see the 9th Man's corpse. She reluctantly agreed, and the Door 4 group then became her, Aoi, Clover, Lotus, and Ace. The Door 5 group entered their door first. After they reassured the Door 4 group that they were fine, the Door 4 group entered their own door. They solved the puzzles beyond it and eventually met back up with the Door 5 group in the large hospital room.

Large Hospital Room

The huge room housed 3 numbered doors (3, 7, and 8) and an unmarked door, along with endless rows of thin beds. They examine the RED on each of the doors and find them nonoperational. Suddenly, Snake and his group come into the room. Snake concludes that the RED on each door is missing a part on the bottom of it. All the players then decide to split up and look for it.

During this time, Akane knocks Snake out with a Soporil filled bomb and exchanges his clothes with Nagisa Nijisaki. She puts Nijisaki in a position to be killed by Ace and stashes Snake into a coffin located on the E Deck. She then returns to the hospital room with the others, pretending nothing has happened.

Akane, worried about an anesthetized Ace.

By the time she gets there, the REDs on the doors are mysteriously repaired, the parts inserted back in. Everyone except Snake gets back to the hospital room. The players split up to find him, with no results. Realizing that they are wasting time, Lotus comes up with one of her proposals. She calculates that to have the most people alive, they have to split into 2 groups of 3, leaving 1 person behind. Akane protests leaving anyone behind, and to settle the argument between her and Lotus, Ace volunteers and injects himself with Soporil so Akane and Junpei can't bring him along.

If Junpei chooses Door 3

On the Door 3 route, Junpei tricks the other players just so he is able to stay close to Akane, even if it means potentially sacrificing/killing either Santa, or Lotus and Clover. Junpei, Akane, Santa, and Seven investigate the shower room after leaving Lotus and Clover behind with Ace.

Akane screams in horror while having a panic attack after finding Snake's bloody corpse.

After finding a corpse believed to be Snake's, Akane has a mental breakdown from the sight and screams. It was an eerie scream, full of insanity, and not entirely human. She shook her head violently, and grabbed fistfulls of her own hair. Junpei could hear the sound of hair tearing. He grabbed for her wrist but as he did, Akane ran towards the exit. Akane bangs on the exit door until her knuckles bleed, and begins pulling her hair out and asking Zero what they did to deserve to end up in the Nonary Game.

"No! Noooooooooo! Please! Get me out of here! You have to let me out of here! Why are you doing these horrible things to us?! What did we do to deserve this?! Get me out of here! Please! Please, just let me out! No! Get off of me! Let me go! LET ME GO!"

A crying Akane being comforted by Junpei.

Junpei couldn't watch anymore. He ran to Akane and wrapped his arm around her, pulling her away from the door. She scrambled for a moment, her legs skittering across the floor, but her
resistance didn't last long. As suddenly as her outburst had begun, it was over. The manic energy disappeared, and her body went limp in Junpei's arms. Akane collapsed toward the floor, and Junpei knelt down with her. He felt drops of her tears and a moment later, she began to sob. Her shoulders shook, and great, hot tears rolled down her face like rain. Junpei told her it was going to be okay and she thanked him.

Several minutes passed before Akane's tears had dried. After a long moment of comforting her, Junpei stood up, bent down, and put his arms under Akane's and helped her to her feet. He sets her down to one corner, and starts searching the room with Santa and Seven to open the exit door.

999 – The Rabbit Hutch

Junpei and Akane discuss the bunny murders.

After picking up the broom in the utility stall, Akane will speak up, apparently back to her usual cheerful self. She mentions an incident in their shared past where they were assigned to take care of the rabbits back in middle school. The rabbits were mysteriously killed, and they spent the rest of summer hidden behind the rabbit hutch in hopes of catching the killer. Junpei says that the rabbit killers never appeared during that summer, but Akane is convinced that them hiding there stopped more rabbits from being killed. Junpei states that that summer with Akane was one he would never forget. Akane reminds him that he only volunteered to help with the animals after she did, and is convinced it was because he wanted to be with her. Junpei unconvincingly denies this, knowing that that was exactly the reason why he volunteered.

If Junpei chooses Door 7

Akane enters Door 8 with Santa and Lotus, while Junpei, Clover and Seven enter Door 7.

If Junpei chooses Door 8

Akane enters Door 7 with Santa and Seven, while Junpei, Clover and Lotus enter Door 8.

999 Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors (The infamous elevator scene (fandub)

Akane and Junpei discuss getting wet.

The two groups escape their respective rooms and to their surprise, meet back in the hospital room. Before they leave, Clover insists on checking what's behind Door 3 and takes Seven and Ace with her. While they do that, Akane goes along with Junpei, Lotus, and Santa to check out what the doors the keys they've obtained open. Santa and Lotus go check what is behind the Earth door and Akane and Junpei go investigate where the Saturn elevator leads to. After an innuendo-filled conversation at the elevator, the two companions ride down to find Door 6. They quickly head back to the central staircase where they exchange information with Lotus and Santa. Apparently, they had found a numbered door, Door 1. They quickly realize that they should meet up with the others and head back to the hospital room.

The explosive death in the shower room.

They enter a room with an atmosphere full of grief. Ace tells them that Snake is dead and the group is shocked. They go and check out the body themselves. It was blown up, just like the 9th Man. With the smell in the room increasingly becoming unbearable, they return to the hospital room. Ace tries to help Clover cope with the loss of her brother and that she has to come with them to the next set of doors, before their time is up. Clover reluctantly goes with the other players and they stop in front of the Mercury elevator. Akane and Junpei go and investigate what it leads to.

The elevator descends, stopping at the bottom deck. Right outside the door was Door 2. They went back to give the news to everyone else. To see who is going into what door, Junpei conducts a vote where everyone writes what door they want on a sheet of paper. Ace and Clover want Door 1, Lotus and Seven go with Door 2, and Akane and Santa voted for Door 6. Junpei's vote is the tie breaker. He has a trick up his sleeve; two extra papers with different door numbers so he can pick what door he wants after seeing the voting results. Junpei chooses Door 1, which leaves Santa, Akane, Seven, and Lotus to go through Door 6.

Submarine Ending

This non-canon ending is achieved by going through Door 3 (shower room) or Door 2 (confinement room) on any route. In the Door 2 route, Junpei, Seven, and Lotus complete the puzzles beyond Door 2 to acquire the Sun Key. Meanwhile, the remaining players (besides Clover) go through Door 1, while Clover stays behind at the central staircase. Somehow, Ace manages to kill Santa and Clover on the staircase, while Akane runs towards the Sun door. She somehow opens it and dashes to the Storage, Ace in hot pursuit. Finally, Ace catches up and stabs Akane, leaving her to bleed on the floor. He quickly goes back to the staircase and pretends to be dead on it.

Akane bleeding to death on the floor.

Soon after, Junpei's group arrives to find the motionless, blood-covered bodies on the stairs. Seven verifies that Clover no longer has a pulse, but not the other two because Lotus steals the Sun key from Junpei's pocket. She begs them to head through the Sun door, afraid that the murderer might return soon. Junpei then glances at the corpses on the stairs and starts to think that Akane, who was not among them, is responsible, but he states that he doesn't want to think about that possibility. Beyond the already unlocked Sun door, then through an odd automatic door, Junpei is horrified to discover Akane bleeding to death on the floor. Junpei stops using her codename "June" since the codenames didn't matter anymore and calls her "Kanny".

Akane dies in Junpei's arms.

The two have a heartfelt conversation. Akane thanks him for everything and tells him that she was happy to see him again one last time before she dies. Junpei tells Akane that he is going to check a nearby submarine, but Akane tells him not to go, and instead, be close to her when she dies because she doesn't want to die alone. Akane tells Junpei that their childhood memories together made her very happy and that they were like treasures to her. Her eyes close and she dies, and Junpei breaks down after witnessing her final moments. During this last conversation, Akane failed to tell Junpei who killed her (Ace). It isn't long until Ace kills Junpei as well.

Safe / Zero Lost Ending

Akane having another fever.

Akane heads though Door 6 with Junpei, Santa, and Ace. They investigate the steam engine room and the cargo room. While searching both rooms, Akane's fever returns and Santa talks about his sister's death, with Akane pretending that she has no idea what he is talking about. After finding the golden revolver in the coffin, Junpei, Akane, Santa, and Ace head out and find that they are on the other side of the Saturn elevator.

They follow a hallway to a small door, and find Door 9 inside the chapel. They are shocked to learn that there are two number 9 doors. Santa states that Zero never mentioned a second door and that the Nonary Game could save all 9 players. Even though Santa, Ace, and Junpei could have went through one of the doors, they refuse to leave Akane behind and return to find the other players.

After leaving the chapel, Akane's team meets up with Lotus and Seven at the central staircase. They learn that Clover is missing and the players conduct a search. Junpei and Akane go to the large hospital room to check, and don't find her. Near the staircase leading up to B Deck, Seven tells them that he has found Clover, dead in the 1st class cabin. They rush up there to find the other players already there. Akane collapses after seeing Clover dead. Junpei begins his search around the room and eventually is able to open the safe. Junpei requests that they all follow him to the large hospital room, as he found out who had killed Snake and Clover.

Santa comforting Akane in the hospital room.

While Junpei was interrogating Ace, Akane was listening to them. All of them were angered upon knowing Ace killed Clover. Suddenly, Lotus punches Ace in the face. Ace suddenly counters her with the golden revolver, takes her hostage, and swiftly leads her out of the room. Akane has a major fever, and is barely able to stand up. She is supported by Santa. They both insist that Junpei and Seven go after Ace. Meanwhile, Santa helps Akane get to the chapel.

Akane sprawled on the floor in the chapel.

Junpei, after witnessing Snake's death, comes back to the large hospital room and looks for her, but she is not there. He searches everywhere for Akane, with no results, and finally makes his way back to the chapel. She is there, lying on the floor. During that time, Santa, most likely, goes back to get on the intercom. Junpei is relieved that she is still alive. Despite her previous fevers, this time, her body is very cold.

An exhausted Akane talks to Junpei.

She tells him that she might not make it and admits that she has liked Junpei since elementary school. Santa comes onto the intercom (disguised as Zero) and tells Junpei "game over" and that Junpei had won, but Zero had lost, and reminding him that he can't escape together with Akane since he had chosen the wrong path.

Suddenly, a door slams behind them. Junpei leaves Akane to go check if that is Zero, and goes back at the chapel. When Junpei comes back into the room, Akane returns from her own timeline, and Santa goes back and throws a Soporil grenade, which knocks Junpei out. It is unknown what happens to him.

True Ending

Akane's group escape both the steam engine room and the cargo room and end up on the other side of the metal gate, next to the other elevator. They investigate the area further and stumble upon the chapel. Inside this room was what they were looking for all this time, Door 9. To their surprise, there was a second Door 9 and the back of the room and they realized that everyone can escape. They hurry back to retrieve Junpei's group, who had just came from the Captain's quarters. All of them cram into the elevator and rush to the chapel.

Santa holding his sister hostage.

Clover flatly states that all 7 of them can not escape. She calculates all of the possible combinations and concludes that if 3 people leave, 4 get left behind, and if 4 people leave, then 3 get left behind. Seven tries to sacrifice himself, but everyone is against the idea and they try to think of another way.

Santa cuts into the conversation and solves the problem with the specific plan. He grabs Akane as a hostage and reveals that he has a golden revolver. He shoves the gun against her head, and forces Ace and Lotus to authenticate. They go in through the big 9 door and leave the other 3 behind.

Santa leads the group in the incinerator and Ace punches him in the stomach and snatches the gun away from him. June lies in the incinerator slumped against the wall, exhausted. Junpei, Clover, Seven, and a surprisingly alive Snake catch up to them in the incinerator. Akane notices Junpei and is happy he came, and tells him not to worry about her. Sometime in the next few minutes, she sneaks out of the incinerator while Junpei and the rest of the group aren't looking. Ace holds Lotus hostage with Santa's revolver and forces her to authenticate. The door does not open, to Ace's dismay. He tries over and again, but the door still won't budge.

Seven then charges at Ace and floors him. Junpei gets Ace to confess to the murder of the 3 other executives of Cradle Pharmaceutical and he is shocked to find that Snake is still alive. Junpei also reveals that Ace was being manipulated by Zero to purposely kill the other executives and that he concluded to have done did it so he could get revenge for the events of the First Nonary Game. Since Junpei thinks Santa is Zero, he questions him and he admits that he is Akane's brother, but that he is not Zero, but merely an assistant to him. Santa says that this whole Nonary Game was set up so Junpei could save Akane from dying in the incinerator in the past.

The sudoku puzzle appears for Junpei.

The incineration process started by Aoi/Santa and a computer came out of the incinerator's floor. Akane returns from her own timeline of 9 years ago, the same time Junpei and the group noticed her inside the same incinerator in the past. Her twelve year old self is found to have been using the morphogenetic field to communicate information to Junpei. Junpei comes into realization that she is in fact, Zero. She tells Junpei exactly what happened during the First Nonary Game and how she got locked up in the incinerator in the first place. She desperately asks Junpei for help on the sudoku puzzle.

Akane cries as she solves Sudoku with Junpei's help through the morphogenetic field.

He solves the puzzle and uses the field to transfer the solution, allowing her to survive in the past. In addition, young Akane gives Junpei a string of additions: 2 + 4 + 5 + 7 + 8, which is the solution to open Door q. Her present self (June), having been saved and confirmed her existence, followed Santa out of Building Q and took their own vehicle and left a SUV and a tied up Ace behind for the other players to get to.

When everyone eventually escaped the facility as well, the two were long gone. They decided to follow some fresh tire tracks, hoping to eventually catch up to them, but the two were never found after. Junpei continued his search for her for what would seem to be the rest of his life.

Nonary Game: Ambidex Edition preparations

Sigma's girlfriend broke up with him on December 18, 2028 so he decided not to go to the party they planned to attend. She broke up with him through e-mail and he wasn't able to contact her at all afterward. Sigma's home computer mysteriously stopped working, and his Buddhist professor said he still had to work on Christmas and hand in his paper that night. All three events were orchestrated by Akane Kurashiki and Crash Keys.

On December 22, 2028, Alice and Clover were in Los Angeles, California, planning to attack the Myrmidon headquarters on Christmas Day, but they are kidnapped by Akane for the Nonary Game: Ambidex Edition. She takes them to her organization's (Crash Keys) headquarters and places them in cold sleep in treatment pods.

On December 25, 2028, also in California, Sigma is knocked out by Soporil in his car. His consciousness is pushed to January 25, 2074, and his 68-year-old consciousness occupies his body in the present time. Phi's consciousness also switches places with her future consciousness. Akane joins Sigma and Phi, but her consciousness isn't from the future so she hasn't experienced the Radical-6 outbreak.

Mars Mission Test Site and Decision Game

The Mars Mission Test Site (Dcom).

Akane went to the Mars Mission Test Site (Dcom) in the Nevada Desert, while Sigma's and Phi's consciousnesses from the future were there due to a timeline loop achieved in Virtue's Last Reward. Using Crash Keys' assets, they hacked the admin server and altered the original subject list and data to include Sigma, Phi and Akane. Due to his perseverance and finding intel, Junpei also went to Dcom to meet with Akane and she acts like they never met.

On December 26, 2028, Sigma attempts to tell everyone that six billion people will die, but is ignored when most of the others don't believe him and almost sent into confinement. Phi tells Sigma that they shouldn't mention the future to anyone. Sigma, Phi and Akane search the facility but can't find any signs of Radical-6.

On December 28, 2028, Akane and Junpei seriously talk for the first time after the events of 999. She tells him that she didn't want to contact him because she doesn't want to jeopardize everything she has worked for and that when the time comes, she will tell him everything. Akane then walks away, but not without faint tears in her eyes.

On December 30, 2028, everyone meets again, but Sigma, Phi and Akane reluctantly await the events of tomorrow, unaware of what is to come.

On December 31, 2028, it turns out the simulation was a trap and Akane was forced to play the Decision Game. In the timeline leading to Virtue's Last Reward, the original Akane died during the C-Team execution and instead, the Akane from another timeline was transported to the Virtue's Last Reward timeline. This Akane was summoned by Zero on April 12, 2029, to wear Free the Soul robes and take part in their "ceremony". She then injected Junpei with a drug to make him forget his memories of the Decision Game. Akane's disappearance from Junpei was done so she can move on to an even grander project: the AB Project and the Nonary Game: Ambidex Edition in Rhizome 9 on the Moon, which was co-created alongside Sigma Klim.

Radical-6 apocalypse

Millions of graves for the deceased.

In the early months of 2029, the Radical-6 virus was unleashed, killing humanity by mass suicide as 6 billion people died. Akane managed to survive the Radical-6 apocalypse.

Months later, Akane met with Delta (Brother) on April 12th, 2029 as part of a "ceremony" and she wore Free the Soul robes. It's unknown what they discussed, but she probably received information such as how to survive the antimatter explosions tomorrow (by going to the Moon). Since Delta could Mind Hack, he would also know of the AB Project from Akane, and this is likely when they agreed to work on the AB Project together. If he kept his promise, Delta also apparently reveals the "true god Free the Soul believes in" and "the secrets of the world" to her.

An antimatter reactor explodes on April 13th, 2029, eventually killing millions/billions.

When Sigma's younger consciousness returned on April 13th, 2029, in the headquarters of Crash Keys, Akane appeared before him under her Zero costume before shedding it. While the two spoke, the nuclear antimatter plant reactors explode, which leads to the "Red Earth" state which has been this way since April 2029 and remains in 2074.

Akane explained to Sigma that he had to start to prepare the events of the Nonary Game: Ambidex Edition over the next 45 years, the project already started with Clover, Alice, and Phi in cryostasis in treatment pods.

Anima Body Project

During those 45 years, Akane worked vigorously alongside Dr. Sigma Klim to ensure the AB Project's absolute success. The purpose of the AB Project (the Anima Body Project) was to transport human consciousness through the barriers of space and time, specifically, Sigma's and Phi's consciousness to December 25h, 2028.

Living with Kyle Klim on the Moon

Kyle Klim in his Moon armor.

In approximately 2070, Akane met a teenage Kyle Klim, Sigma's cloned son, for the first time. She developed a special bond with him that was almost motherly since Kyle never had a mother.

Akane told Kyle about the world outside and Kyle loved her stories. She also stated that she was close friends with Sigma. Since she was not helping his father, Sigma, with his research, Akane would spend most of her days with Kyle. Akane told Kyle that his father had once been in love, which made Kyle think that Akane was secretly his mother. Kyle viewed Akane as the closest thing he had to a mother.

About four years later, in 2074, Kyle was heartbroken when he realized that despite the fact that he loved Akane as if she was his mother, she did not fully reciprocate the same love back. Akane realized she might have to give her life for the AB Project, something which Kyle strongly opposed.

Rather late in his life, Akane appeared as a mother figure, and Kyle consequently grew very attached to her.

Kyle desperately tried to find a way to stop her and Akane did her best to convince him that everything was going to be fine. Kyle wanted to believe her, but he remembered that it was she who pushed him to involve himself in his father's research. As much as Kyle was angry at Akane, he could not bring himself to hate her, as she had given him a reason to live and showed him how to see meaning in his life. Though she worked together with his father and was fully aware of the situation from the start, Kyle could not deny the kindness that was given to him from her was real. She gave Kyle the feeling of having a real family, something that he wouldn't have given up for the world.

Kyle pleaded with her to leave, but she refused, stating that there was someone very special to her. He had saved her life once, and she felt that her death would help to repay that favor. She told Kyle that she would like nothing more than to marry him and live a happy life together, but she couldn't. For the sake of the future she had wanted, Sigma's research needed to succeed. Kyle realized that though she was important to him, someone else was more important to her.

Akane and Zero Sr. (Sigma Klim)

She tried to explain that there is a future where no one will have to die, but Kyle refused to listen. Given the life he lived now, there was no need for that future, as he himself had what he had always wanted and wasn't going to allow someone he's never met to take that away. Kyle shut himself off from the world after this.

Prior to the Nonary Game: Ambidex Edition, Kyle is sedated with a large amount of Soporil, causing generalized amnesia, and placed in an AB Room. He is also infected with Radical-6.

Virtue's Last Reward

Luna receiving orders from Akane in 2074.

Finally, the AB Project was set into motion in January 2074. Akane had gathered all of the players and was ready to begin. Akane spoke to Luna before the game started and ensured that she knew her orders, despite the fact that Luna disliked the plan of having Akane killed for certain events to occurred. However, Akane had a backup plan: Schrödinger's Cat.

Akane dying after Dio stabs her heart.

Later, Akane entered Warehouse A, wearing a player bracelet. Knowing that Dio was infiltrating the facility for the Myrmidons and for Brother, she willingly let herself be killed by him in front of the "TWO MILKMEN GO COMEDY!" graffiti, having been stabbed in the heart. Luna then, by Akane's orders, placed Akane's body in her AB Room (the right-most AB Room).

When the players were solving their escape room, Zero III moved the AB Room using a crane from the very right to the very left AB Room. In doing so, this also revealed Dio's Myrmidon knife and would later expose it to Alice, as well as prevent suspicion of Luna.

Akane's dead body in the left-most AB Room.

During the magenta and yellow Chromatic Door routes, after solving the escape rooms, Akane's corpse is found in the left-most AB Room. Though everyone does not know who she is, Tenmyouji knew who she was from the minute he saw her, as Tenmyouji is Junpei, only 47 years older. He is saddened by her death, but can't divulge her identity to the other players due to orders given by Zero Sr.

In the cyan door route, Dio fails to kill Akane due to Sigma and Phi and she plays as K.

Zero Escape Virtue's Last Reward PS Vita Walkthrough Part 92 (Phi True End Part 1)

Akane's hologram in Room Q.

On Phi's route, after solving Room Q's puzzle along with Sigma and Phi a hologram message began to play. An old woman appeared in the hologram, who Tenmyouji recognized as Akane. Akane told Sigma and Phi why they were brought to Rhizome 9. During the message, Akane acknowledged Tenmyouji, knowing that he was in the room with them. Akane told him that she would like nothing more than to be with him, but she had much to do to make that future and asked him to wait just a while longer. Crestfallen, Tenmyouji took out the picture of Akane when they were children and solemnly stayed quiet and averted his gaze from the hologram.

AB Room: Past (cyan door)

Akane thanks Sigma and Phi for saving her from Dio.

Due to the time jumping abilities of Sigma and Phi which developed over the course of the Nonary Game: Ambidex Edition, Sigma and Phi eventually are able to awaken before the game starts and knock Dio out, preventing her death. Akane thanks Phi and Sigma for saving her and ties a key around Sigma's ankle before ordering Zero III to release her from her bracelet, which she attaches to the unconscious Dio. Akane reveals that she can send her consciousness through time like Sigma and Phi. Akane tells Sigma and Phi to be ready for the events to come after this new past as their minds are sent back into the future.

Akane then places Sigma and Phi back into their AB Room so their starting point will be the same. She also adjusts all of Dio's bombs so that their timers are synced to Radical-6 time, and she changes the password of the first bomb to BQZ RGJ DXR (Crash Keys), presumably because it is the only bomb password which Dio never reveals. She plays the Nonary Game: Ambidex Edition as K in the cyan door route.

Phi END continued

Following Phi's ending, everyone cooperates so that everyone has at least 9 BP to escape the facility, though they leave Dio behind because of his Myrmidon status. When they leave, Tenmyouji reveals that the date is January 2074 and that Radical-6 has killed six billion people. Sigma then remembers that he has the key tied to his ankle and returns to the facility with everyone following.

Akane strips K's armor in the B. Garden.

When they reach the B. Garden, Sigma remembers a keyhole in a tombstone from his visit to the B. Garden in one of the alternate timelines. A single Treatment Pod rises from the ground but needs time to defrost. Sigma thinks that Akane will be in the pod but instead, a clone of Sigma appears. After discovering that his appearance is not the one of his youth, Sigma turns around to see that "K" has shed his armor, revealing that in this timeline, Akane had replaced Kyle in the armor suit.

Akane reveals the true purpose of the Ambidex Game, to develop Sigma and Phi's timeline jumping abilities. Akane then attacks Phi with Dio's knife, with Sigma jumping in the way to protect her, forcibly sending both of their consciousness back into the past in 2029.

End or Beginning

Akane speaks with Sigma.

Zero in a Free the Soul robe.

Akane talking to Sigma during the apocalypse.

"H-Hey, no need to be rude about it. I didn't kill you. I hit you with the butt of a knife. You're fine."

— Akane to Sigma, after he accuses her of killing him in the B. Garden

As the suicidal newscaster kills herself from Radical-6 on the TV that Sigma was watching, a 22-year-old Akane walks in, wearing her Zero mask and a Free the Soul robe. She tells Sigma that they are in her headquarters on April 13, 2029, and are about to leave to go to Rhizome 9 tomorrow and that a Moon shuttle has already been prepared for him, Alice, Clover, and Phi.

Akane explains the purpose of the game and how Sigma must spend the next 45 years mastering genetic engineering and AI programming to make the AB Project work. She also tells him that he will create Kyle, Luna, Lagomorph, the Chromatic Doors, the bracelets, and all aspects of the Nonary Game: Ambidex Edition in order to succeed.

After that, his consciousness would return to December 25, 2028, so he and Phi can help her investigate the Mars Mission Test Site in Nevada and stop Radical-6 from ever spreading out. However, she also warns him that the test site is extremely dangerous and full of traps, and that he lost his arms and an eye there. As her explanation concludes, the nuclear reactors explode.

After these events, on April 14, 2029, the shuttle arrives on the Moon with Akane, Sigma, Alice, Clover, and Phi on board. They all go to Rhizome 9. Phi, Alice and Clover are still in treatment pods, and are stored away for 45 years.

Another Time

? and Tenmyouji have a conversation in which Tenmyouji feels he has no desire to speak with Akane because she is no longer the Akane he knew. He comments she must have seen some pretty awful things over the years and may no longer be human. He claims that the Akane Kurashiki he knew is not here, or anywhere.

Akane questioning "Kyle" in the B. Garden.

After speaking to Phi, ? heads back to the B. Garden to ask Akane for an explanation. She tells him that while he is in Kyle Klim's body, his consciousness is not Kyle's. ? asks her that, if he isn't Kyle, where the real Kyle's consciousness went. Akane says that Kyle, in a way, went back to December 25, 2028 with Sigma. She goes on to explain that while Kyle was created as Sigma's "spare", his consciousness was also important to Akane and Sigma's end goal. This mission would span from December 25 to December 31, with the purpose of preventing the spread of Radical-6. ? points out that Kyle did not exist in 2028, and thus would not have a body to enter, unless he uses ?'s own body. Akane confirms this claim.

Zero Escape Virtue's Last Reward PS Vita Walkthrough Part 99 (End or Beginning 2 Part 2)

Akane Kurashiki speaking to ?

? then asks what's going to happen to him, and if he will have to spend the rest of his life in Rhizome 9 in a body that isn't even his. Akane tells ? that this is not the case, as he can travel freely through time and space, as he is an "uncontrolled variable" in the project, and so the rules of the world don't apply to him, and they hadn't anticipated his appearance. ? is about to say that he doesn't understand, but Akane tells him not to "try to play dumb", and that she knows what he is. She tells ? that he is about to return to the past and save the world, and that Phi and Sigma will need his help, and that this will be the only way he will get the answer of what happened in the last week of 2028. This is the implication that ? is actually the player, and that the Mars Mission Test Site outbreak will take place during that week.

Zero Time Dilemma

Akane reappears in Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma as a participant of the Mars Mission Test Site simulation and a prisoner of the Decision Game created by Zero II. Akane is trapped in Ward C of the Underground Shelter. She is a member of C-Team with Junpei and Carlos. Reunited with Junpei, the two used to be connected by strong bonds, but ever since being assigned to Team C in this game, they always have conflicting opinions. It is important to note that the Akane in this game hasn't experienced the events of Virtue's Last Reward yet and only knows about the future through a vision she had after 999.

Branching timelines (D-END: 1 & C-END: 1)

Ambidex

In the Power Room, Akane bashes Carlos to death with an extinguisher after he kills Junpei by betraying him in the Ambidex Game, moments before succumbing to fatal drug injection herself.

In the timeline where Carlos SHIFTs to prevent Junpei from playing the Ambidex Game as the result will always be gruesome, Akane instead suggests SHIFTing to another timeline, and initiates a nuclear explosion to create the ideal SHIFTing environment, leaving D-Team's fate unknown.

Zero Time Dilemma The Boy and the Ring scene

Junpei proposes to Akane.

Akane ends up SHIFTing to the timeline where they did not get all 1s on the dice rolling Decision Game. Junpei suggests Carlos and him act as a meat shield for Akane, allowing Akane to get their X-Passes, then shifting to the timeline where they did get all 1s, and escaping that way. Akane reveals her feelings towards Junpei afterwards, explaining the grief she felt watching him die. Junpei proposes to Akane with her ring, though he puts it on the wrong hand.

After discovering that X-Passes are locked to their respective histories, Junpei breaks down and contemplates suicide to allow Akane and Carlos to escape. However, he is interrupted by a mysterious child with superhuman strength attempting to punish them for a rule violation, seemingly by death. After Carlos SHIFTs back and forth, he suggests Akane and Junpei use the Transporter to escape to an alternate timeline. After they transport, the mysterious child strikes the Transporter and causes the entire facility to explode, killing their versions in the current timeline.

Aftermath

Having copied themselves using the Transporter, Akane and Junpei are reconstructed in the D-END: 1 timeline (where their respective versions in this timeline have been executed as a result of the vote).

However, Akane's worst fears are realized when Zero reveals that Radical-6 has already escaped the facility and the patients have been rushed to the hospital for treatment, thus starting the Radical-6 outbreak. Later, they are able to escape the facility thanks to Carlos who had used the transporter to create a copy of himself in that timeline as well to rescue them.

Realizing that this is the timeline that leads to the events of Virtue's Last Reward, Akane vows to make the AB Project a success to make a better future. Junpei offers his help and to join Crash Keys, but Akane does not wish to put Junpei through it and knows that she needs to work at it alone. Before Junpei can protest, Akane injects Junpei with a large dose of the amnesia drug in a removed bracelet, causing Junpei to blackout and subsequently lose all memory of reuniting with her during at Mars Mission Test Site and the Underground Shelter. What happens afterwards leads to Virtue's Last Reward, and the events of Radical-6 apocalypse and Living with Kyle Klim on the Moon occur. Akane is seen to still be wearing Junpei's ring in the future as well as during Virtue's Last Reward.

Suspicion

Akane falls to the floor in sorrow after finding Junpei's decapitated head.

When Akane awakens in the Pantry, she finds herself there with only Carlos, with Junpei nowhere to be found. During their search of the room, they come across a dismembered human body which, upon exiting the room, results in them discovering the severed head of Junpei in the freezer. Akane is horrified by the revelation and mourns his death. Akane suspects that Carlos had murdered Junpei and she leaves to retrieve a chainsaw, prompting a battle between Akane and an axe-wielding Carlos.

Q-END: 1 (What Is Love? Don't Hurt Me)

Carlos believes that he really did kill Junpei as the thought of Akane killing him seemed impossible. With the axe in hand, he promptly cuts his neck and kills himself. Horrified, Akane cannot believe that she even thought that he had killed Junpei and cries over his corpse. Her fate afterwards is unknown, though the X-Door is opened by members of Q-Team, implying she was left there.

Q-END: 2 (Real Zero/It Came From Within)

Carlos believes that Akane had killed Junpei, angering her for thinking that she killed her childhood friend. A short confrontation occurs where Akane slices off Carlos' left hand with the chainsaw, and despite this, Carlos manages to slice her neck with his axe. As Akane dies laying in a pool of her blood blaming Carlos for killing her, she laments that she was unable to avenge Junpei for his death. Akane's dead body is later moved to the Pod Room where it's discovered by Diana and Sigma after transporting from a different timeline.

D-END: 2 (The Hope of Two/A Silver Lining)

Junpei sacrifices the mask to save Akane.

Akane, Carlos and Junpei wake up in Control. After their search was concluded, a fire had started in the room. Fortunately, the fire suppression system was successful in putting out the fire. However, it did not stop its output of carbon dioxide, and soon the carbon dioxide concentration reached dangerous levels, prompting the trio to try to look for an oxygen mask. Following a decision game, should Carlos find a mask, he gives it to Akane, leaving himself and Junpei to suffocate. Junpei is glad to hear her voice one final time before he and Carlos die. Akane tries to wake them up, to no avail.

After the current status announcement of the Decision Game participants reveals that alongside Junpei and Carlos, Q-Team and Phi were dead, and reveals 6 X-Passes. Disheartened and unwilling to let Junpei and Carlos's sacrifices be in vain, Akane uses the X-Passes to escape, leaving Diana and Sigma trapped in the facility. Her fate after this ending is unknown, and she does not return with help for Diana and Sigma for unknown reasons. It is possible she died from carbon dioxide poisoning after, since when she escapes the X-Door, she appears to be walking slowly as if she is in a daze. It is also likely that Delta planned something in advance in order to ensure his birth.

CQD-END: 2 (Pay-off 2/The Final Decision)

Akane mentioning the power of friendship and teamwork will save humanity.

After the events of the Decision Game, Akane and the group met with Delta outside the Mars Mission Test Site and discovered the truth behind the game.

Through Junpei & Akane post game files, Akane and Junpei had worked closely with Carlos to find the religious fanatic, as well as help his sister Maria to control her SHIFT powers so she could live comfortably. Since then, Junpei officially joined Crash Keys and more importantly, Akane had moved the ring he had given to her to her left hand, signifying that the two are engaged. Junpei had already begun planning it and was planning on inviting Aoi, Carlos and Maria to it.

Etymology

Her name, Akane (茜), refers to a red dye which can be alternately translated as "Rose" or "Madder".

Kurashiki (倉式) can be broken down to:

  • Kura (倉) – warehouse/storehouse/granary
  • Shiki (式) – ceremony/ritual/function

Akane and Aoi's surname may have been created as a nod to how they kidnapped everyone and put them in a "warehouse" of sorts (Building Q and also Rhizome 9 for Akane in the sequel) for their "function" (plans). Shiki (式) may also be a reference to the occultism in the game, which could be a hint of sinisterness. It may also refer to their intentions of stopping a religious cult (Free the Soul).

Her alias is juin, which is the 6th month of the Gregorian calendar. However, her codename is more likely derived from the voodoo doll Junpei bought for her when they were kids. This is discovered upon completing the True Ending of the game.

Her Japanese codename, Murasaki (紫) means purple, which is the 6th color of the rainbow (not including indigo). She also wears a purple dress and has purple eyes. The first syllable, mu, can be ambiguously interpreted in Japanese as either "nothingness" (or "zero") or "six", a reference to her role as Zero and her true bracelet value. Murasaki may also reference an amethyst (むらさきすいしょう murasakisuishou) which are associated with purple and the number six. Furthermore, the amethyst is the birthstone of February, Akane's birthmonth.

Her brother's name is a homonym for aoi (青い), "blue". His sister's codename Murasaki (紫) means "purple". A notable theory is that this relates to the morphogenetic field. The graphics demonstrating the morphogenetic field show that red = transmitter and blue = receiver. That means purple should transmit and receive. Akane wears purple, and Junpei wears red and blue and they are both capable of doing two-way communication.

  • "Perhaps humans are the same, with our minds and thoughts existing separate from our bodies. Our "core" is in our head, of course. We all have individual brains, think individual thoughts, and act according to individual wills. That makes communication difficult, though. So, we're forced to rely on inefficient mediums like language, photographs, non-verbal cues, etc, to transmit information. Each one of us is an individual, and we have no direct connection to anyone else. But… is that really true? In the dimensions we are most familiar with, yes, it is. If we look at things from another, higher dimension, however… We may all be connected after all. Like the branches of a tree… Or a rhizome…" (Akane talking about morphogenetic field theory)

And what about you, Phi? I know you have too… Am I wrong? Tenmyouji should know what I'm talking about as well. I believe you experienced something very similar nearly half a century ago. You sent your consciousness to the past to help save a little's girl life. It was a long time ago, but… Perhaps you still remember?"
  • "The cat in the box… is it alive? Or is it dead? Sigma, Phi… You will decide its fate."

  • "Tu fui, ego eris."
  • "Zero, the mastermind of the AB Project… is you." (to Sigma)
  • "Please don't try to play dumb. I know what you are. Surely you must know by now, too. You are about to go into the past, and save the world. Phi and Sigma, even with all of his future knowledge, will need your help. Only you can right the horrible wrongs of our past. Only you can save the world." (to ?)
  • "Then you must believe. Reality is shaped by what we believe reality should be. If observation can change the motion of a particle, then how is it odd to think that human thought can shape reality? Your will can change history! The world will be reshaped into the one you imagine! Remember what I've told you. Only you can change history. Only you… can save the world." (to ?)

Trivia

  • It is implied Akane is bilingual in Japanese and English, given she attended school in Japan.
  • In the Japanese version of the series, Akane calls Junpei "Junpei-kun" and Carlos "Carlos-san".
  • According to the timeline, Akane was born 9 days after Junpei.
  • The 12-year-old Akane being the narrator of 999 may explain why some of the game's writing can be perceived as childish and juvenile, examples of which are calling gore "pizza dough" and describing a corpse as looking like a "crab". It is also very descriptive, often detailing the visuals, as children as often very impressed by visuals. The writing is also emotional-based at times, such as, "The atmosphere in the room changed. Grief was suddenly gone, replaced by a tension." This may be a result of Akane resonating with Junpei's emotions and feelings instead of simply her own.
  • There is a concept (albeit a psuedoscientific one) called indigo children – children who are different from others. They have been described as possessing strong wills, empathy, curiosity, and are emotionally/physical sensitive. They are often perceived by peers as being strange, and are resistant/rebellious to rigid, control-based paradigms of authority. Some believe they have great purpose on planet Earth and are the next stage in human evolution, as well as theories of indigo children possessing paranormal abilities such as telepathy. Considering how much Zero Escape dives into pseudoscience (especially Akane herself), as well as descriptions of Akane, it is possible Akane was modeled after the indigo child concept. The specific reason "indigo" is used because it is claimed these children appear with an indigo-hued aura, sometimes associated with the concept of chakras. Akane wears an indigo-colored dress and has unnatural indigo eyes, and her Japanese codename (Murasaki) literally means purple or indigo
  • In the novelization, it is revealed Akane loves the film adaptation of Titanesque by James Cameron and has a DVD copy. Junpei hasn't seen it. As Akane is described as having a "delicate heart" and being "very much a crybaby", she probably cries during it. Her interest in it probably began as a result of being on the sinking Gigantic.
  • Akane's fevers occur when something isn't supposed to happen. They mean Junpei's heading down the wrong path, and that she is closer to being incinerated in the past. In the True Ending route, Akane doesn't have a single fever, except for the one when Teruaki Kubota's corpse is seen by the other players.

"—" is probably Akane.

  • In the True Ending, Junpei hears a mysterious voice telling him "truth had gone" three times. If Junpei chooses "left, right, left, right, left, right", the voice speaks to Junpei and tells him he's wrong and that he should "know everything".(4) It is almost certain that the voice is Akane telepathically communicating to Junpei.
  • Aoi always goes through a numbered door with Akane to maintain the guise that his bracelet number is 3 and his sister's is 6. Because Aoi's bracelet number is likely 9 and Akane's is likely 0, adding their bracelet values to any combination has no effect on the digital root. This was implied in Question 66 of the 999 Q and A.
  • In the Japanese version of 999, instead of "Jumpydoll", it is "Grapedoll". Junpei found a "voodoo" doll, but he misheard it as "budo". In Japanese, the word "budo" (ぶどう) means "grape". Because this pun would be lost in translating it from Japanese to English, the localizers opted for Junpei mishearing "voodoo" as "For-You" instead. In addition, grapes are commonly associated with the color indigo/purple, another reference to Akane.
  • Akane designed Zero III in memory of the murdered rabbits from her childhood with Junpei, which occurred over 50 years prior to the Ambidex Game. It is also possible she used Kyle's rabbit doll as a base.
  • She has orchestrated two Nonary Games, the Second Nonary Game and the Ambidex Edition, both of which to maintain and alter events of the past. If the player chooses to go through the Cyan door in Virtue's Last Reward, she would have played the Nonary Game all three times with Clover (although during the First Nonary Game, Akane was on the Gigantic while Clover was in Building Q).

There may be a guardian spirit somewhere here.

  • In the Secret Archives of Virtue's Last Reward, it comments on the photo of Akane and Junpei. It claims Akane has a male "guardian spirit" looking after her. "Look at the left side of the picture… If you look closely, it almost looks like there's a man grinning in the background. Do you see him? Don't worry if it seems a little strange: A spirit medium has told us that the person in this picture is a guardian spirit, who's looking after her. He must have shown up here because he'd hear what sort of destiny she had in store, and decided to see how she was doing." If you look closely at the tree, a deformed grinning face can indeed be made in the formation of the leaves.

Akane's identification card in VLR.

  • Akane's identification card has an extremely blurred URL on the bottom right of her identification card. This URL goes to Chunsoft's website. Chunsoft are the publishers of the Zero Escape series in Japan.
  • In "End or Beginning?" de Virtue's Last Reward, Akane tells Sigma that she doesn't know about anything that happened in the Mars Mission Test Site. This contradicts C-END: 1 and D-END: 2 of Zero Time Dilemma, where Akane leaves the underground shelter with some memories intact.
  • Akane is originally voiced by Ali Hillis in the "End or Beginning?" segment of Virtue's Last Reward as a young woman, but this was retconned out in The Nonary Games version of it. She was re-dubbed by Rena Strober, her voice actor in the 999 remake (The Nonary Games) et Zero Time Dilemma. She is one of three characters to change voice actors, the others being Sigma and Diana.

Zero Time Dilemma Back to the Future discussion

Akane talking about Marty McFly.

  • Akane once watched Back to the Future, as shown in the Power Room when she speaks about the movie there.
  • The producer of Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, Jiro Ishii, as well as Uchikoshi himself have stated that their favorite character is Akane.(5)
  • For the character popularity polls, Akane ranked #2 in Japan and #4 in the United States.
  • Akane and Light never once use profane language in Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, the only characters to do so, although Light says "what the hell" in the chapel.
  • Akane, Luna, and K are the only characters that never use profanity in Virtue's Last Reward.
  • She is one of three characters who have appeared in all three games, the others being Zero and Junpei Tenmyouji. If counting the first Nonary Game, which occurred when she was 12, she is the only person to be an active participant in one form or another (as a player, mastermind, or both at the same time) in all known versions of the Nonary Game.
  • Akane is good at mahjong.(6)
  • There are implications in Zero Time Dilemma that Akane is a theist. She says, "Maybe that was the universe God had intended in the first place", "We might be in the history God abandoned" and "Only God decides who lives and who dies!"
    • This is in contrast to Sigma who has implications he is an atheist.
    • After hearing Akane mention God, Zero says, "Oh ho. To think you of all people would invoke God" (presumably because it is well known that she takes an "ends justify the means" approach, and has coordinated at least one death game; two, in one timeline) and invites her to a ceremony where she will see the "true god Free the Soul believes in." and supposedly reveal the secrets of the world to her.

Akane as a moe cat girl.

  • Dans Zero Time Dilemma, Akane's status screen icon has cat ears. This may be a reference to her being the "Schrödinger's Cat" of the previous two games. It could also be a reference to the cat that she and Junpei saved from being set on fire and tortured. It is also designed to appear in the Moe style of Japanese art, referring to her being from Japan. The overall art style seems to be reminiscent of the Nendoroid plastic figure designs.
  • Dans Zero Time Dilemma, as revealed in the designer notes, Akane's outfit is symbolic. It is intended to be reminiscent of a kimono with a sash, representing Akane's Japanese heritage. The black sash around her represents her hidden dark side. The chain-like intertwined patterns represent her being constricted.
  • Dans Zero Time Dilemma, she is symbolized by a flower with her clothing colors from 999 on the slot machine in the Rec Room.
  • Akane's X-Passes are Crash, Key, Six, Hex and June.
    • Crash / Key – The name of her organization is Crash Keys (a rough Anglicization of "Kurashikis").
    • Six / Hex – Akane's bracelet value (though in reality its supposed value) in 999 est 6.
    • juin – Her nickname in 999.

L’histoire du bracelet bouddhiste remonte à presque 3.000 ans. Il est lié à la naissance de nombreux courants spirituels tel que le bouddhisme et l’hindouisme. En effet, il s’agit d’un objet à usage spirituel. On l’utilisait durant séances de prières et de méditation.

Certains modèles sont en bois de santal, d’autres sont en pierre de différentes couleurs. Le bijou comporte aussi une palladium et un fermoir conique.
Autrefois, le bracelet était porté pour chasser mauvais tête et infortunes. Dans années 50, l’utilisait en tant qu’ornements pendant les périodes festives.
Dans le de diffusion de cet religion, ce bracelet bouddhiste est connu des modifications afin d’être un accessoire d’or goût de tous. Ainsi, des formes plus simples et plus sophistiquées ont vu le jour. Il s’agit par exemple du bracelet shamballa et du bracelet Reiki à 7 chakras .

Les parure et perles ont beaucoup d’importance dans la culture bouddhiste. Ils sont utilisés pour prier, bouquiner des mantras et effectuer des rituels.
Ils sont couramment composés de pierres naturelles, des pierres semi-précieuses possédant une énergie positive. On peut retrouver la pierre semi bas-bleu de :

Le bracelet est une version plus momentané des perles normales qui a la même signification et transmet le même message.

Le bracelet n’est pas seulement un accessoire fantaisiste, par contre aussi un symbole de la foi.

Le prix d’un bracelet tibétain varie selon le fournisseur auprès duquel vous vous approvisionnez. Vu leur grande valeur, le coût bien s’élever à des milliers d’euros. Vous avez même la possibilité de personnaliser votre bracelet tibétain.
