Feel like it would have been good if this series was a little longer, it's hard to get attached to anyone before they die. Even the bromance just kinda happened before one of them died right after. Enjoying it, it's freaking zany and I have to admit it's fun to see the execution cutscenes, but I imagine the game is probably better.

I'd agree with Hangaren there. I really wish this could've been longer than 13eps, so far I'm missing a lot of character development and key leads that the games has ( cleared the game 2 weeks ago ) They're really trying hard to get everything into one episode, it works but I just feel is a bit rushed and missing out a lot of good moments from the game.

Awww, I think this is the first character I feel sad for seeing her go. She was clever :cry:

While everyone else is dicking around with murders, Kirigiri's out there figuring out the end-game like a boss. Though I wonder what pair is gonna die next.
Spoiler :
My first guess would be the other girl getting murdered by the mole trap, but I have feeling that they're gonna throw a curve ball and off the glasses guy somehow. He seems like an important character but not at the same time. That might just be me.

Agreed. Pretentious as it sounds, it hits you harder in your gut to see someone die after having had all those little interactions with 'em.

I'd also like to add that some of the game mechanics they've put into the anime (EVIDENCE FOUND! etc) kinda frustrate me, because in a non-interactive medium, it just looks goofy and takes away from the creeping horror of the plot.

Spoiler :
Quite surprised to see the spiky hair guy still alive, since I thought he was gonna be one of the first to go. Though I'm kinda hoping now I don't jinx him, considering it seems Genocider would only kill Togami but she won't kill him since it would be too obvious and Togami would only kill if he was absolutely sure he can get away with it. So that only leaves him and Asahina, and I'm putting my money on Asahina since it seems Sakura would do something like that for her.


Another thing I notice it seems in the credits the (would be) murderers are on the left and the victims are on the right. wonder if this will be a continuing trend if they don't solve anything by the end of the show.

This is one of my fave

Spoiler :
Hmmm... I wonder if all of them aren't actually dead.

I notice that it was pretty weird that they don't want them to figure out any secrets

That was my first guess since they mentioned hostages, but all of them clearly died throughout the series so it wouldn't make much sense. Unless this is all some weird virtual reality or something...

Dear lord.... the anime definitely doesn't do the game justice. I highly suggest you get hold of the PSP: The Best version of Dangan Ronpa and download the fanmade English patch and play it.
The anime is trying too hard to be like the game, when it simply cannot be. I agree that the "Evidence found" and stuff like that just seem goofy and detract from the flow.

I think the thing I'm most bothered about is the fact that people who watch the anime before playing the game basically make it impossible for them to fully enjoy the game like I and many others have.

The animation is pretty nice but also seems to take a dive sometimes. The character art doesn't seem consistent enough for my liking either. (Whereas in the game it was pretty consistent and just... better in general.)
Lack of characterisation is a shame too, plot armor is quite an obvious thing.

TT_TT

I feel like I'm complaining too much but I was SO STOKED for the anime and it's just been a little bit of a let down. I will definitely be making another Dangan Ronpa AMV when it's finished airing though, purely for the 1080p footage ya'know. :D

Spoiler :
THEY'RE DEAD, DAVE. EVERYBODY'S DEAD. Well according to the credits, anyways.

I was thinking that they (or somebody) made a bet to see who would make it in a survival setting like this, so they (possibly made clones of themselves and) threw 'em in there to see what happens, but now I'm not sure what to think.
