Togami. Definitely Togami.

He's a bit of an arse, but he's one of the few characters with a thinking head on his shoulders (setting aside the characters with obvious plot armor), even if it is occasionally clouded by his own arrogance and occasional bursts of megalomania.

Fukawa (and her homicidal counterpart) is a close second simply because of how enjoyably insane her character turned out to be.

Hagakure. The poor guy just has 'definitely going to die' written on him so strongly that I really want the series to do something unusual and let him live. I'd also say Aoi, but at this point I don't like her chances of making it past the trial.

Same here. That's why even though there's practically no chance he'll make it, I can't help but think, "Come on, just a little bit longer! You just have to stay safe a little bit longer, Hagakure!"

In the trailer, he was dead in place of Maizono, considering he was in the bathroom, stabbed.

Probably Maizono, they never tell as Monokuma stops the trail in the last 1/4 saying he can't let the player proceed because its just the demo.

Actually no. Considering the evidences, it is very likely it is Hifumi, although there isn't really much regarding the circumstances.
It doesn't makes sense it is Sayaka because she is actually siding with Makoto during the trial.

You can. Not sure if there is a YouTube video of the demo, but the vita trailer shows a glimpse of her standing in her stand. Not recommended for anime viewers though as the vita trailer contains full spoilers for both games.

Youtube is the worst idea ever when it comes to danganronpa.
Since the first lets plays finished they are pretty much everywhere in the related videos, and will spoiler pretty much everything.

re-watched the demo lets play, and I don't see any evidence pointing to Yamada.
I see how it might point to Kuwata again though.

Its very likely that a room exchange still happened though, which is why I guessed its Maizono, as she is the only one Naegi would not throw to the wolves. Hagakure is also a much easier target than Kuwata, who is an athlethe.
That she is defending Naegi of all people doesn't really speak against her guilt.

Some lines of other characters got shifted to Enohsima and Maizono, for the demo, but thats it.
And maybe one line added for Celes, though I think she told Kuwata and Yamada to pick up their jars already in the finished game too, just regarding to Asahina instead of Maizono

Well... that's the joke: to say "Look, it's a TTGL reference. [animation studio name] confirmed for bros".

It's just one of the many new-bait meme /a/ has.

1. There is -potato chips- in the Lint Roller. Only Hifumi eats junk food among the cast.
2. It doesn't make sense for Sayaka not to blame Makoto, because her plan is to frame him right from the get go. Defending Makoto would only make things more complicated for her. She bet on the fact Makoto would take the fall, which he wouldn't if he doesn't realize he was framed by her. By that, defending Makoto would confuse him even more and might jeopardize her plan already.

Danganronpa never cease to intrigue me.

The hints gathered by Alter-Ego coupled by the few clues that Naegi found out in the 2nd Floor, Bathroom Hidden room are pointing out that the story is approaching the core of the mystery, although with few people left then the time has come for them together to do something against the mastermind.

I'll be honest that this episode ran slowly and got a few issues with the pacing's fluidity. However, comparing those are virtually null in contrast to the tension that pave the way to Sakura's murder.

No doubt, that MonoBear intentionally revealed Sakura as the mole, since the game was becoming stagnant and needed to throw in a twist to keep it running smoothly, save that Sakura actually stood her ground and wouldn't cave this time to MonoBear's whim.

Now, Togami actually went overboard with how jerk he can get to be, and I root very much for Asahina trying to put glasses boy in his place, since I'm also a very impressionable person.
Secondly, I think that Togami demanding from Sakura to disclose to them all the true identity of the mastermind is utterly an idiotic request to ask. Why? Because the mastermind him/herself wouldn't be stupid to expose his/her identity in person. Remember that no matter if MonoBear can and could pick anyone from the teens to act as its mole or agent, that teen is still a player in its twisted game of who-dun-it. Hence, the Mastermind would take and put on safety measures not to get him/herself compromised at this stage.

As for the newest set of clues found out:
1. The Principal is a man in his late-30's. Naegi and Kirigiri either presume or suspect for the time being that he's the mastermind.

2. The situation in which the remaining teens are found without being capable of leaving Hope's Peak Academy is exactly similar to the School Enforcement Plan that the Principal prepared to enact about a year ago.

3. According to the clues, the Enforcement Plan was enacted by the school due to the Super-Despairing Incident that Happened in Human History, which could give credence to the cryptic message that Naegi found in the secret room moments before he was knocked out cold, "Do not leave the school".

Based on those clues, I speculate something must have happened in society for the Principal to have gone a sort of a mental case and keeping the students from leaving the school.
