Kaemugi is a femslash ship between Kaede Akamatsu and Tsumugi Shirogane from the Danganronpa fandom.

Canon

Initially thought to be a life-sized doll, Kaede didn't expect that Tsumugi has the title of the Ultimate Cosplayer due to her normal-looking appearance. She states that she could feel some sort of "pheromones" that can't stop from falling of Tsumugi because she was out of costume. She also said that Tsumugi has a "strange, almost sexy aura" about her, possibly because she had people ogling her curves on a daily basis, or so Kaede says. It is unclear whether Kaede was just being playful or actually hitting on Tsumugi, but it should be noted that Shuichi even told Kaede that she sounded like a creepy old man after Kaede made those comments about her.

In the bonus scene (triggered only if the player gave Tsumugi Nail Brush present in Chapter 1), Tsumugi offered Kaede to paint her nails which resulted in Rantaro interrupting Kaede's appointment with her. It is later revealed that Tsumugi actually holds no friendship towards Kaede. In Chapter 1, Tsumugi had figured out Kaede's plan and when she discovered that Kaede's plan failed, Tsumugi decided to kill Rantaro herself to prevent everyone else from being executed. Because of this, Tsumugi framed Kaede for the action and executed her as well.[1]

In the first of their Free Time Events, Kaede and Tsumugi talk about cosplay. In their second one, both get depressed after realizing they'd have nothing left without piano and cosplay respectively. Depending on the choice, they agree to either bake, read or go out to a cafe together once the game ends. The two had no interactions in Ultimate Talent Development Plan.

Fanon

The ship sailed mostly as a result of the Cosplox scene (the page's picture) where Tsumugi puts on Kaede's clothes to demonstrate how her "Cosplox" works. However, with the reveal that Tsumugi, the mastermind, framed Kaede for Rantaro's murder after the latter's plan failed, the ship became very unpopular.

It is the most written ship for Tsumugi on Archive of Our Own.

Trivia

  • In a way, both are the culprits of Chapter 1. However, while Kaede's plan failed and she didn't know who exactly she was aiming for, Tsumugi's plan succeeded and she knew who her target was.
    • Kaede is the only person in the franchise to be executed in someone else's place.
    • This is one of two Danganronpa ships between two culprits of the same case, with the first being Yamaceles.
