This is our darling Oogami Sakura (from Danganronpa!) She's the extraordinarily buff young woman with a radiant and pure heart of gold who is deeply loyal, right down to her extremely muscular core! T////////T
Dear y'all... Sakura is truly such a good, faithful, and unerringly caring girl; I think she was one of my sisters' and my favorite characters from the wide and varied cast in the first Danganronpa game. (Was anyone else also following the DR story posts in the Something Awful forum?) :3c
A few years before Sakura gained gleaming muscles and scar tissue en masse, she was described as "slim and fair;" it was during this time in her life when she made an important promise to the only human she couldn't defeat in combat -- a young man who held an important place in her heart. (And then afterwards, whilst training in earnest to fulfill that promise, she became super duper ripped.)
“I visited [Kenshiro] once. He'd lost so much weight. He looked like an entirely different person. But do you know what he said? He told me that I was the Strongest Human Alive. That I had taken the title. He'd said he'd return someday to get the title back. He said I’d better not let anyone else take it. He didn't need to say the last part. I'll never give up that title, not until he gets better. And when that day comes... I will defeat Kenshiro and earn that title for real. And that's why I have to get stronger... That's my biggest reason for becoming the Strongest Human Alive.”
-- Oogami Sakura
"Keep my seat at the top of the world warm for me, would ya?"
-- Kenshiro's request to Sakura when she visits him in the hospital (T//////////T)
PS. Dear y'all! Oogami Sakura fans may like the outcome in the touching alternate storyline, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc IF! (pq´v` *) It explores this important possibility: What if... protagonist Naegi Makoto began to regain his memories right at the beginning of Danganronpa?

This is Oogami Sakura from the first Danganronpa game (which was also adapted into an anime!) I drew her younger, more petite self (she is amazingly muscular in the timeline of the game's story!) Here she is:
Sakura deserves many more fans like you, and she deserved far better than what happened to her in the game's events...
Same for you and your sisters as well melly! It is going to be even more sadder, if Kenshiro is still around if I recalled he survived his ailment.
I *think* Kenshiro (who's very gaunt and white-haired because of the illness you mentioned) appears in Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls ?? I haven't yet gone through this game but I'm really looking forward to seeing him make it safely through to the end!! T_______Tpq This series is so full of sad curveballs...
Danganronpa lives on the despair of the players/fans. That's why it does things like it does.
