Danganronpa The Animation

MangaUpdates wrote:A group of 15 elite high-school students are gathered at a very special, high-class high school. To graduate from this high school essentially means you'll succeed in life, but graduating is very difficult. The school is presided over by a bear called Monokuma, and he explains to them that their graduation hinges around committing a murder. The only way to graduate is to kill one of your classmates and get away with it. If the other classmates discover the identity of the killer, the killer is the only one executed. However, if they fail to catch the killer, only the killer graduates and the others are annihilated. Which of the 15 will survive the bloodbath to come?

This is pretty freaking insane.

Pretty enjoyable, for being so over the top, although more than anything it's definitely got me interested in the games.

Watching this show is a double edged sword... I'm really interested in the game now, but playing it seems pointless when I'll have all the answers spelled out for me via anime by the time it comes stateside. Can't stop watching though!

From what I hear, so far they left out quite a bit from the game, possibly due to time constraints or something. So I guess it would be like knowing your destination, but not the journey.

AHO AHO AHO AHO AHO AHO AHO AHO AHO AHO AHO AHO AHO AHO AHO AHO AHO AHO AHO AHO AHO. God that was annoying >___>

This show is so freaking over the top, it's gets pretty weird at times for me. But god if that punishment scene wasn't the coolest animation I've seen in a while. :up: :up: :up:

I guessed who was gonna die next fairly accurately. Now let's see if my thoughts on the culprit had anything to them >__>

In the first murder case, I was pretty accurate in guessing what'd happen. Well, not who the real killer was (wasn't a lot of clues to that), but as far as what happened to
Spoiler :
Maizono. From her reaction at the end of ep1, I bet that she was gonna be either the first to die, or the first to try and kill someone - turned out I was right about both!

at least

No such thing as a slow episode in this one so far...

And just like that we're heading straight into another trial huh? Seems like this will be a fast paced show, but I'm not complaining!

finished ep 3 just now and am enjoying it, although I don't feel there's been really any character development. the main character is the stereotypical "I wan't to save everyone" character and everyone else are extreme character stereotypes.

anyway, looking forward to the next ep, and I hope they actually find out who is behind the bear and kill the guy, although I doubt that will happen.

These character designs really make me cringe sometimes. The serial killer's look is just..... :|

My top 3 on the "need to die" list are her, the buff trap, and spikey-hair. Those freak me out the most.

Genocider Syo is actually one of my faves. Togami, on the other hand, is annoying as hell.

Also, always sad to see a bromance last so short. Manly tears were shed ;_;

It's not the tongue that gets me, it's the scissors. What's up with Japan and scissors? Seems like it's become some sort of weird accessory trait/weapon of choice.

so much bromance in the last episode, manly tears everywhere.

I want to think the glasses guy is going to be one of the final contenders but with the way this series just kills people off he may get an anti-climactic death just to throw things off.
