“I thought *I* was young to start working as a detective... You're incredible, Kyoko.”
— Shuichi to Kyoko in the Ultimate Talent Develpoment Plan

Saigiri is the het ship between Kyoko Kirigiri and Shuichi Saihara from the Danganronpa fandom.

Canon

Shuichi and Kyoko have no interactions in canon. They are both Ultimate Detectives and are the implied love interests for the main characters of their games. Their only direct interactions remain in the non-canon mode Talent Development Plan in New Danganronpa V3, where they both go to Hope's Peak Academy at the same time with Kyoko presumably being Shuichi's upperclassman. The two are depicted with an amicable relationship, with Shuichi looking up to Kyoko as a detective and taking advice from her on his case-solving.

Quotes

“I apologize for having such a negative attitude earlier, Thank you for encouraging me”

Fanon

With both Kyoko and Shuichi never interacting in the main plot, and just having one Event in the Ultimate Talent Develpoment Plan, the ship is a rare-pair among the Danganronpa fandom and doesn't have as much supportes. The two are mostly shipped togehter because both Shuichi and Kyoko are known as Ultimate Detective, another reason is because , Kyoko is very confident and Shuichi isn't very self-confidence, which lead to some people imaging that Kyoko would help Shuichi with his self-confidence problems, which also is a popular thema in fanfictions about Kyoko and Shuichi.

The Danganronpa fandom jokes about Shuichi being Makotos and Kyoko's Child, altough this is non-canon and much likely impossible to be true, some people still believe it's a true theory and are critical against the ship. Despite the ship being such a minor one, there is quite a bit of fan art including Kyoko and Shuichi, mostly both kyoko and Shuichi are seen to solve a case togehter, or sometimes they are drawn with the other Protagonist's and Implied Love Interest's of the other Danganronpa games.

Both Kyoko and Shuichi have much more popular ship's, for Kyoko it's her ship's with Celestia and Makoto. While Shuichi has more popular ship's with, Kaede and Kokichi. These ship's highly overshadow Saigiri and contributed to the ships nonexistent among the Danganronpa fandom. However, some see the ship has potential due to their matching talents and fairly differing personalities (Shuichi being a meek amateur detective in comparison to the cool-headed, more experienced Kyoko). On Archive Of Our Own, the ship currently has about 15 fanficitions.

Trivia

  • Both of them have a body part that they try their best to hide. In the first chapter of V3, Shuichi wears a hat to hide his eyes after a previous case made him hesitant to look people in the eyes, and Kyoko wears gloves to hide her scarred hands.
