On Thursday, after lining up Danganronpa 3’s brand new characters, Famitsu will be revealing all 15 characters who appear in the anime charting The End of Kibogamine Gakuen and its ‘Despair Chapter’. These include characters from the Super Danganronpa 2 game, whose stories are adapted in the anime’s upcoming chapter.
In the ‘Despair Chapter’ (‘Zetsubo Hen’), the focus will be on what happened to Super Danganronpa 2’s characters before the game’s plotline. Afterwards, the ‘Future Chapter’ (‘Mirai Hen’), which premieres in July, will put the characters from the first game in the spotlight. The two parts are previewed in the series’ new promo, but if you don’t want spoilers for the second game, we’d advise skipping ahead to 3:07.
FUNimation, who streamed the Danganronpa the Animation series as it aired in 2013, describe the story based on the first Chunsoft game:
Hope’s Peak Academy is an exclusive private school that only accepts the best of the best. Graduates of this elite – yet enigmatic – institution have the world at their fingertips, but getting a cap and gown is easier said than done. The hallowed halls are ruled by the sadistic administrator Monobear, who declares that the only way to pass the class is by sending a fellow student home in a body bag. If you can get away with murder, you’ll get your diploma. But if you’re caught red handed, you’ll find yourself on the receiving end of a deadly detention slip!
