Plot Summary


Hope's Peak Academy is a special school, recognized by the government, that was established in order to gather and nurture top-class students who excel in various fields. This school has two courses: The main course, and the preparatory course. Anyone with the money can enter the preparatory course, even if they don't have any special skills. The 77th class of the main course is filled with students who not only have unique abilities, but unique personalities as well.

However, the students learned that "Talent isn't the most important thing in life; it's to involve yourself with people and make yourself a better person while making memories." However, little did they know that a mysterious project and discrimination of the courses were happening right under their noses.

Hajime Hinata, a boy from the preparatory class who craves for an ability. The fateful meeting he has drives the future of the school into an unimaginable direction. This is the story of what happened up until the "The Biggest, Most Awful, Most Tragic Event in Human History." This is a story of hope that ends in despair.

This seemed more lighthearted compared to the other arc. Meanwhile, I do like how they introduce the majority of the main characters with their own unique traits and talents.

It may seem lighthearted here at first, but with a certain someone showing up in the OP, the after credits scene of the board looking at Hajime's file clearly to turn him into Izuru Kamukura, and then the fact that CHIAKI IS REAL all point to this series eventually hitting a mood whiplash point. Junko is gonna be introduced here sometime, she's gonna get her grips in on everyone except Chiaki, Izuru is gonna transfer in, crap's gonna go down, and I hate to admit it, but Chiaki is probably going to die I hope beyond any hope that Naegi or Nagito can muster that Chiaki somehow lives through this series so that her and Hajime can be a happy couple after the end of Future Chapter, but if they must kill her off, they better make it up to everyone by showing what the Ultimate Despairs did to Junko's corpse, and how they found it in decent shape to transplant her body parts considering she was crushed to death. I really want to know what part each person took, and I want Danganronpa to push the censors to the max in that regard. My expectations for this arc are actually much higher than Future Chapter's after seeing this first episode, and that's solely because there's stuff we KNOW will happen with this group that is much darker than anything the FC group will do, and because it's reasonable to assume the survivors of DR1 have plot armor in FC, while the one character we don't know the future of in DC has no plot armor whatsoever. Her fate could go either way...

I'm just surprised more people aren't hyped over Chiaki being real... I don't recall her even being mentioned in the cast either...

I don't know if her inclusion will be a mind-screw, a hope spot, or a black hole of despair... And with Danganronpa, it could literally be ANY of those

It's good to see these character back, especially Ibuki with that flame guitar. I'm surprised that Chiaki actually existed, it makes me wonder if she's still alive during the events of the Future side.
I wonder if we'll see Fuyuhiko's sister, was she part of 78th class with Naegi an the others?

It hurts knowing this is a prequel and knowing how it will all end.

I gotta say, of the Danganronpa twins, Despair Arc is the "Harley Quinniest". Jurassic Park references, toilet, humor, and Takata airbags for breasts! Such a radical and positive departure from the dark, brooding murder mystery franchise we all know and love, I can't wait for Funimation's simuldub to come out soon

this show seems interesting but because of the three i feel like there are a bunch of other things i should watch first in order to understand the show better.

Any idea where to start?

You should really play the first two games especially Danganronpa 2 as this a prequel and will expand/ spoil that game.

There is an anime adaptation of the first game but would recommend playing the game for the full experience and the ending of danganronpa 2 won't make sense if you have not played/ watched the first.

I'm actually glad that they didn't make Danganronpa 2 an anime. Enough murder 4 me.

... there is no murder in Danganronpa 3, right...?

Hmm. Or something.
Really enjoying this and the Future arc though!
