It's been stated that aside from Izuru, it's all Junko. It's like dropping a boat with a tiny crack into the ocean. No matter how small the crack, the water (despair) from the ocean (Junko) will force its way in. Then there's the fact that there's going to be already dark events about to occur without Junko even being involved, and its going to start putting chinks in characters' armor. Think of Junko like Heath Ledger's Joker, all it takes is the psychopath to give one little push in the right direction, and then the people start snowballing away. After all, many of the greatest minds in history have also had some of the darkest depths

If I'm remembering the stuff I've heard about Danganronpa Zero right (making my way through it right now), then Junko is still behind Izuru's corruption too. He was made to be able to become the Ultimate of any talent, and then when you have Junko influencing that person, it's rather easy to make them one of the most despair-induced individuals on the planet. Izuru was basically the greatest weapon both for and against hope. If it wasn't for Junko, he could have truly been the Ultimate Hope. Stupid Junkos...

Then... Why watch the new anime, let alone start threads for it? You clearly don't know a huge chunk of the story (if you haven't played DR2, I'd bet my bottom dollar you haven't played Another Episode...), essentially 2/3rds of the existing story is a blank to you, and the really important parts that are essential to everything that's happening and going to happen in the DR3 anime are a mystery to you, and will continue to be so. They specifically made DR3 with people that have played the past games in mind. As in, they're not going to give explanations to things that were explained already in DR2 and AE. Seriously, you're only ruining the series for yourself, and people like you who spout things like "the story is poorly developed so far" only needlessly hurt the reputation of the series. It's not poorly developed, you're just making the dumb choice of watching something labeled 3 without experiencing 2 and expecting it to make sense.

Seriously, this is like me going into Naruto Shippuden in the middle of the series and expecting them to explain everything that's gone on since the Chuunin exams all the way back at the beginning of the original Naruto for no good reason. Maybe before criticizing the series, realize that you're clearly not the target audience as you have no knowledge of two games' worth of important information. Heck, I'm calling it now, you will have NO IDEA what is going on when the mastermind of the Killing Game in Future Arc is revealed... Fans of the games that have played them know who and what is going to be the mastermind, as it's been all but said in previous games, but we have NO IDEA how they'll even make it work, which is part of the intrigue of the whole thing. You don't even understand the the significance of the Remnants of Despair and what Naegi really did with them...

Just... Think before you criticize the series further. You are clearly not the target audience. If there's something you don't understand, that's all YOUR PROBLEM. Now, if people who have played the games, and heck, even read the light novels that go with the series, don't get something and think the story is poor because of poor development or something, THEN that's a serious issue, because it means they're missing their target audience. Good lord... And just to be clear, while this seems like I'm just relentlessly berating you, that's only partially true. It just gets frustrating when people act like a series is poor because they willingly skipped major parts of it, and I'm trying to save you from being utterly confused by the ending of the series, most likely then downrating it because of your own ignorance of the series, and to keep major things from being spoiled for you in case you ever do want to experience the series as it's MEANT to be experienced...

Geez, calm down. I didn't even say the series is poor overall. Some of the elements of the show has a lot of potential especially with the diverse range of characters. Just a personal opinion of how the story feels at the moment.

I started the thread because I wanted to watch it? What's wrong with that? Of course I'm going to watch it and discuss it weekly. I appreciate the advice but I think you overreacted a bit honestly. I may plan to play the game before the show is over or afterwards.

You don't really need to play the game. Actually if you watch the anime there will be no point to playing the game. It relies completely on the fact that you know nothing about the characters. If you've watched the first episode even ,you know that Hajime is a reserve student. That was a big reveal in the game.

Really more what this anime seems to be is filling in the cracks of the second game.

I see, thanks.

I'll look more into this to fill the gaps.

You can still view the game as a "sequel" to the anime, although all the big plot twists would already have been spoiled.

The reason I reacted largely is because when people who are ignorant of things then criticize it negatively simply because of their own ignorance instead of a legitimate complaint, it hurts the reputation of the series overall, and makes more people less likely to get into it. You are absolutely free to watch it and spoil two-thirds of the pre-existing essential material, but hold your critiques as they aren't legitimate. Like the example I used, if I went from the Chuunin exams in Naruto to the middle of Shippuden and then criticized it negatively because I decided to skip a bunch of material, does that give my complaints any merit? No. It really all but invalidates them. Both of the arcs in Danganronpa 3 are meant to be watched after the rest of the essential material has been experienced, and the creator has flat-out said that the anime is a love letter to the fans of the GAMES. Not the first anime. I am aggravated by your baseless critiques, and also trying to help you prevent from getting a large portion of the initial enjoyment of the second game (and side game with Future Chapter) from being spoiled.

Really, for complete understanding of what's going on, the second and side games will need to be played. Heck, the whole reason Naegi is on trial in the Future Chapter has to do with what he did in the second game, and it looks like they're not going to go in-depth into the whole thing. The mastermind of the new Killing Game is also most likely the two villains left "alive" from the second and side games. The traitor is still up-in-the-air. When the mastermind(s) of this game are revealed, people like Stark (and quite possibly you as well, Jing, I can't remember if you've only played the 2nd game or both the 2nd and side) will be utterly confused about it, because they won't be given some super huge introduction and have their entire plan and motivation laid out. That's when people are going to further criticize the series and say things like there's poor development and such, when really there isn't, it's just those people skipping a huge part of the story. It's like reading The Hobbit and then jumping straight to Return of the King and then criticizing the series simply because the person didn't read essential parts. See what I mean?

Episode 3

Wow that was fairly interesting. We got Natsumi who got into a big argument with Sato, a classmate whom she had a history with apparently.

Then later in the episode, she got killed? I'm really curious as to who is the culprit. My guess is Sato for now even though she denies it herself. Also, I think Hinata defended Natsumi (after her death) as he feels similar to her by the fact that they are both "talentless".
