^Man, I'm sorry you feel that way. As I said in the anime thread, I personally have no real issues with the adaption (I actually prefer that they're following the game's plot closely, but I guess I'm in the minority here). As far as the negative comments go..... well, I tend to ignore them, heh. But I guess this just goes back to what I said in my previous post about obscure franchises becoming popular. Still, you shouldn't let those Debbie Downers get you.... well, down. As long as you still enjoy the franchise, then those comments shouldn't be any big deal, really. Lord knows I've had more than my fair share of encounters with those types, after all.

Yeah, it's strongly recommended that you refrain from any DR-related searches on youtube if you want to abstain from spoilers. Actually, that goes for Google as well, for the most part. I guess the anime might be fair game, but even THAT could become risky in due time (if it already hasn't, lol ). My suggestion would be to check out forums like here instead for news instead of hunting down info on your own, only to stumble upon some super-spoilerific tumblr post or something.....

YES I take 4chan to represent Western fans because I think it has a population bigger than here + MAL + ANN combined; besides, I have the feeling that people who experienced the game aren't that supportive of the anime here anyway besides a few people like marvelB etc. Meanwhile my current roommate who has never seen an anime in his life said the episode's pretty interesting when he watched the Chinese sub with me (speaking of which where's English sub? He probably would have a much easier time reading that instead ...), and that Maizono's cute but probably evil; his only complaint is that he can't memorize the names but at least he can identify them by their characteristics. He would probably keep watching it with me until he has to go back to England in a month's time or so.

Hence the conclusion in the introduction </insert this-is-why-we-can't-have-nice-things.jpg here>
Sigh, I will probably follow this series elsewhere; this is utmost disappointing because I got interested in the series here. I can't help but feel people would enjoy it a lot more if they never played the game now (kinda like nobody actually read the novel for Horizon so I don't have to deal with idiots saying how the anime team killed all Kawakami's "personal touch" during season 2).
Shit, I knew you were there based on that japanesefag who always talk about 2ch They always find a way to shit on everything though, so it's no wonder they did that. Even without the translation I'd reckon they'll still find a way.

Well there's Phoenix Wright that I could think of.. but it's for DS Others said that it could be played using emulators though, so you might play it using a PC

Are you freaking serious? People are saying this?


Argh, I give up. I officially don't get people anymore.

I wish the DeSu2 anime was as close to its game as this anime.

I do admit it's sort of a weak intro from a narrative standpoint because we aren't given enough time to get acquainted with the cast (especially Maizono who needs to be developed before the next trial happens), but I can't fault the studio for the lack of time.

Aside from the aforementioned Ace Attorney series, there's also the Zero Escape games (999, Virtue's Last Reward). I've only played the former so far (haven't played the sequel yet due to the lack of a Vita or 3DS), but I can say that it is quite good.

Zero escape games are more of puzzles than mystery solving though But then again, the mystery in that game were all quite shocking and fun to speculate while playing the game, so it's kind of good choice too.

^Crap! You beat me to it!



But yeah, this is great news! Though this does bring up the question of what will become of Oren's LP (unless he's the one translating the overseas release, then it's all good, lol ).

Just to make it clear, it's only the first game that's coming over, which I find is an incredibly odd decision. But still, great news all around!

Yeah, they're probably just doing the original first to coincide with the anime, then release the sequel a year later or something (which will most likely also have an anime adaption around that time). At least, that's my guess.



Also, apparently NIS is using their own translation instead of borrowing Oren's or Project Zetsubou's. That would explain why we aren't getting the game until early next year, I suppose....

That'll be hard since I'm following the anime. I wonder if I should just skip the adaptation and wait for the game, or just continue considering the shows is coming along nicely and I wish to know more about what's about to happen. I have plenty to think about...

Hm... Not sure about buying a Vita -just- for Danganronpa though. It'll have to have some other good game too.

I can't find the translation of Dangan Ronpa IF anywhere. I believe I used to read it on the forum DR ages ago, but now it's gone!

Here you go.

Certainly tempted to just put the adaptation on hold and just check it out after I've played the game down the road.

@ellifeedn Thanks for the link! I used to go there somehow but i couldn't remember how I got there!

I really wish there's continuation of DR IF.
