Welcome to the Danganronpa: The Academy of Hope and the High School Students of Despair discussion thread.
Come here to chat about the latest episodes, the characters, plot, or the series in general.

Genre: Mystery

Plot: In another dimension the Devil King Sadao is only one step away from conquering the world when he is beaten by Hero Emilia and forced to drift to the other world: modern-day Tokyo. As "conquering the world" are the only skills the Devil King possesses - and are obviously unnecessary in his new situation - he must work as a freeter to pay for his living expenses.

Wiki Section

Main Pages: Manga (1st, 2nd, and Sequel) | Anime | Franchise | Characters

To-Do List

Here's a list of things we want to do in the wiki, why not help cross some of them off? Also feel free to make suggestions.

  • Create character pages.
  • Add images and summaries to episode pages.

Important Pages

When editing the wiki (particularly episode and volume pages) it's helpful to use this section as a reference guide.

Locations
When adding locations, don't forget to add parent locations. For example, when adding Japan to an episode or volume, Earth should also be added. Locations appearing in flashback sequences generally don't count.

Recurring Pages: Kibōgamine Academy

Objects
Objects should be specific rather than general, like Natsu's Scarf instead of just Scarf or Purgatory Armor instead of Plate Armor. General objects are being removed from the wiki.

Recurring Objects: None,

Concepts

Common: Humans, Flashback, Unreal Hair/Eye Color, Simulcast

Specific: Super High School Level

Awesome I'll start working on the character pages. As for the first episode itself I though it was pretty crazy, Monobear is becoming a favorite character of mine.

It's going to be another series in which I should play the game but don't have access to a copy. Hopefully the budget doesn't run out halfway through like the P4 Anime.

After Devil Survivor, Sword Art Online, and Btooom!, I'm going to give this series a try.

@Sonata:

I just finished watching episode 2. Well, I'm hooked on the series. It's a shame that we didn't get to know the deceased characters a bit more. Time to work on the episode summaries.

@takashichea: Yeah it is, but I still believe he are in for a wild ride. I still need to add more of the characters and Hope academy. Tough to find some good pics, but I'll keep looking.

@Sonata:

Yeah, the pics are hard to find. RC is doing this half caps thing.

After seeing episode 1's large cast of characters, it really shows its video game element. I thought the art style was like Persona 4. At first, I thought this show would be like Btooom! because you got people killing people to get out of here and a romantic relationship forming. Then, episode 2 hits. Never expected that twist.

@takashichea: I had an idea of using the first episode profile cards as the pics

I made one for Celestia, It turned out pretty good.

Some gave me the idea that this show is like a cross between Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney and Battle Royale. I can agree with that.

@Sonata:

That's awesome! Celestia and Kyoko's design is cool. I never play Persona 4 or Phoenix Wright. This is one messed up crossover.

Finished Ep. 1 summary.

@takashichea: I like their designs as well. They are two of my faves along with Junko and Yasahiro the crazy haired fortune teller.

Nice work on the summary I've added the all the characters to the pages as well.

@Sonata:

Wow, you got every character with their profile card. Awesome job! I did a little wiki list for us. I better fill out Sayaka and the pink haired girl who died.

@takashichea: ThanksXD

Episode 3 was nuts, and I knew it all along lol. It's going too get more and more difficult the rest of the way now.

@Sonata:

Well, I got a chance to watch episode 3. I watched it on HULU which is weird. I think never expected that message to be written upside down. I should have known! I'm a bad detective. I think you spotted that one.

Since HULU and Funimation does stream the show, HULU doesn't do the watermark videos. I just have to dodge subs. For Crunchyroll, I can turn off the subs for the new anime series but not the old one. I thank for helping me out with screen captures. We can both add images. Just tell me which episodes you would like to do.

@takashichea: Right that was the one I caught, I love detective stuff like this:)

So up to date with the series. I thought it was going to be an action fighting series. More mystery than anything.

For episode 3 or 4. Can remember now

Had to be a girl, it was in the female changing rooms. My guess is it was the reading guy, got the girl that clearly is insane to do it. Or, it was the massive meathead woman.

Going to watch episode 4 later and then put my thoughts on here:)

Watched episode 4. Didn't expect Chihiro to die. I was paying close attention to the clues, but damn, I'm lost. It can't be Touko (her dissociative disorder) because it would too easy.
