Life at Hope's Peak
Joining the Future Foundation
The Monokuma Hunter Game
After apparently sleeping in, Akira was brought into the gymnasium by Kazami Kotono. While cleaning the Gym, Akira is among the Future Foundation interns to be in the gym when everyone is knocked out for the killing game to begin. When everyone woke up after being knocked out with sleeping gas, everyone, including Akira, awaken to find a device on their wrist, with a timer and a 'Forbidden Action'. Monokuma appears on a monitor to reveal the rules of the killing game.
When the rules were explained, everyone, including Akira, looked up to see the pet panther of Toto Makumi, Black, killed.
After Toto Makumi goes crazy from his panther being killed, he steals one of Akira's pocket knives and injures Tomoyo Chino. When Tomoyo was taken to a safer location by Haruka Saimon, Masami Fujimoto and Naoki Kenshi, Akira volunteered to help them out.
When Tomoyo was at a safer location, Akira spoke with Naoki Kenshi about how Ryuji Shido becomes unstoppable whenever Tomoyo is injured or in danger.
Later, when Ryuji, Masami and Hitomi Shageki met up with Akira, Naoki, Haruka and Tomoyo, Akira assured Ryuji that Tomoyo was fine. The first time out occurred after this.
When the first time out ended, Ryuji, Tomoyo, Naoki, Haruka, Masami and Hitomi all complained about not being able to know how to find their way through the building, but Akira says that she does know, she then points out that the building was originally called the 'Gifted Inmates Academy'.
Later, while heading to their destination in an attempt to find a communication device, Ryuji separated the group into teams with himself, Hitomi, Naoki and Akira being on guard duty.
After splitting up into teams, Akira talks to Naoki about how funny they are together, with Naoki saying that they have a lot of banter between friends and how they treat eachother like family. Akira confesses to Naoki about her parent's deaths when she was younger and Naoki conforts her.
Later, while on guard duty, Akira asked Ryuji about his daughter, Mirai, much to Naoki's dismay, while Hitomi does the same thing. Someone then approached the group to attack them, but the second time out occurred before any fights broke out.
When Naoki woke up, he instantly screamed as he saw Akira's corpse on the ground missing part of her brain.
Naoki, in a show of respect, covered Akira's corpse with his blazer.
While Akira seemed to be friendly with everyone from the original killing game, Akira seemed to get along with Naoki the most, since she talked to him more than the others and opened up to him about her parents. Naoki also seemed to show the same friendship towards Akira when he found her dead since he was the most torn up about it and showed respect when he covered her body with his blazer.
- She is the first female participant of the Monokuma Hunter Game to die.
