    Danganronpa: Not enough time.
    Let me start by simply saying that I really enjoyed the Danganronpa games. When I say this, I am referring to the first two video games in the Danganronpa series. These are great little anime mystery style Visual novel games with some amazing voice casts and fun little mechanics. The characters, plots and the game mechanics are what make these games so interesting and that is where the anime ...

    Amazing show. Worth watching
    If you like blood, violence, and mystery this show is for you. Great characters and great story. It is a murder mystery show about high schoolers forced to murder each other in order to escape. It had me on the edge of my seat watching the whole thing in a day.

    Play the game instead. Seriously.
    I was curious about the anime after watching a streamer play the newest Danganronpa game on twitch. Absolutely loved the first episode...until I realized the story exactly matched the first Danganronpa game.

    I threw on the breaks and started playing the game instead. The game is phenomenal. It plays out like a visual novel with mystery solving game play. About 30 hours to complete the main ...

    It's okay, you can get a kick out of it.
    Just as a side-note, I have never played the games, but I've heard good things about them.

    Naegi is accepted into Hope’s Peak Academy, an elite private school that only accepts the very best. The whole thing is revealed as a death trap, as administrator Monokuma, an sadistic animatronic bear, declares that you can only get out by killing a classmate. The most interesting part of the series are ...

    Games > Anime Adaption
    I'm a big fan of both the games and the anime adaption. * Yay V3!* And the show on it's own is a great highly recommendable watch! A fun mystery plot point and lovable characters. However, if you do have the time and money to purchase the Danganronpa games for yourself- start there. There is more backstory and a deeper understanding of characters and cases missed with the lack of time in the anime ...

    Play the Game instead
    I wanted this to be good, I really did. After playing the game I decided to give the show a try. I barely made it a few episodes in before giving up on this butchered anime adaptation of a great game. Not only do they leave out a LOT of character development, but they also leave out a lot of things relating to the Investigations and Class Trials as well. While the Music and Art Style is still ...

    Very Underrated Anime
    I absolutely LOVE this anime, but of course the game is better. That's the reason I find this anime to be underrated or disliked. It's compared to the game, but it's still a good show on it's own. I understand, it's way shorter than the games and doesn't go into as much detail during investigation time or class trial time, but if you want to go watch a long anime go watch One Piece or Dragon Ball ...

    Play the game first.
    This series would probably serve best as a quick refresher or if you want to see your favorite characters animated from the first game. The actual story from the game is way too dense to fit it all in 12 episodes. it also skips a lot of character development. do yourself a favor and play this amazing series first.
