Future Arc has come out in full force now, and oh boy is it good! Great Gozu is great, the rules have been laid down, and deaths are happening at an honestly alarming pace. It’s really good, and I am actually enjoying myself, as opposed to last week where I mostly liked it all because it was finally happening. More words at The Fandom Post.

The best Dangan Ronpa cast is back, and oh boy are they still the best. This episode is largely full of fluffy fun, but some small more intimate moments and the fact that we’ve seen the future makes it all work on two very different levels. This episode even makes the previous one retroactively better, since we now know more about a handful of the Future Foundation characters introduced there, and I’m hoping that is a sign of how things will generally play out for the rest of the season. I have more words at The Fandom Post, and I’m looking forward to next week more than ever.

Danganronpa is finally back for one last go at the Hope’s Peak Academy story, apparently, and I couldn’t be happier. I wrote back when this was first announced about how wary yet optimistic I was about the final story being told exclusively through an anime. More things have obviously been announced since then – specifically, the fact that there are actually two concurrent anime – but the general set of fears mostly stays the same. This first episode doesn’t tell us how different or similar the story telling style will be now that it is not a visual novel, but I did mostly like what I saw here. In fact, I have even more words about that over at The Fandom Post, if that interests you, and I’ll be seeing you for more killing game fun on Thursday with the Despair Arc.

Note: This post is filled with immediate reactions, speculation, and all other kinds of general brain dumping. It doesn’t contain (big) spoilers, though, because I am more kind than the anime staff it seems. It isn’t even really about Dangan Ronpa as much as it is about video game/visual novel adaptations in general (with Dangan Ronpa as a case study), but eh. Read at your own risk.

A new anime has been announced for the Dangan Ronpa franchise, but it isn’t the adaptation of Goodbye Despair as many of us wished it would be. No, instead, it claims to be, no kidding, the “conclusion of the “Hope’s Peak Academy” series“.
