Zettai Zetsubou Shoujo Danganronpa AnotherEpisode [PSV]

More news regarding the TPS spin off has been desclosed by famitsu.

絶対絶望少女 ダンガンロンパ AnotherEpisode
Zettai Zetsubou Shoujo Danganronpa AnotherEpisode
(Absolute Despair Girl - Danganronpa AnotherEpisode)



The game has been described as a full fledged action game for the franchise.
The protagonist is, as we suspected, Makoto's sister, Naegi Komaru. Also, the article seems to imply that Makoto, Hajime and even Monokuma (real one I guess) won't be present in the game.

We probably will need the actual famitsu scans to figure more about the game and DR3 as well.

Where do you suppose this would fit in the continuity?

As far as it goes, AnotherEpisode looks like it is happening either during DR1 or between DR1 and SDR2.

Naegi's house was a wreck in the DVD so this is probably about his sister dealing with the apocalypse.

Any SDR2 spoiler-like comments allowed here?

^We'll probably have to wait until more info comes around first, but I think SDR2 spoiler talk will be fine since this game seems to be an "interequel" of sorts, anyway. Plus, the last prequel story we had (Zero) literally features the first game's endgame villain right on the first page, so this game probably won't pull any punches in that regard, either.....

Pretty sure it's the latter. I mean, didn't the trailer even show Fukawa (in her Syo personality anyway) as a playable character? She still would've been locked inside Hope's Peak if Another Episode took place during the first game's events.

Was Naegi's sister always that big? I certainly don't remember her having that kind of presence in the video clip on the CD in DR1.

-Komaru attacks with a speaker phone, using "word bullet" (kotodama) similar to the first two games. Bullet types includes "destroy", "dance", and "move"
-More horror than shooter feel
-Genocider Sho (Fukawa) playable

If they keep the same CV for Komaru, then Miyukichi will have 2(+1) roles

According to the guidebook she's taller than her brother.

Plus since this is (probably) set after DR1, it's natural she's gotten bigger than in the video from before DR1 events.

Is it just a coincidence or perhaps...?

I wouldn't be surprised if she shows up, but I would be surprised if they are the same person.

Another concerning matter is the title of the game Zettai Zetusbou Shojo= Absolute Despair Girl and we know how absolute her despair was. I'm probably overthinking things but we can't deny the possibility.

But Spike Chunsoft isn't the type to repeat plot elements. Just like their 999 and VLR series.

They applied the first game plot twists to the second game but revealed it in the very beginning.

If the promotion picture is canon, many things need an explanation. Hinata is Hinata, Usami is Monomi, Nanami is there...and Naegi's sister's name keep making me see it as Komaeda...

Seeing how she has showed up for both games, and in zero, I think this is a recurring theme - thus I am not surprised if she shows up in the shooter, or in 3.


I think the promo picture is just trying to show the 2 existing games with the new one. I can't see how Monomi (not Usami) or Hinata would fit the timeline in between, for AnotherEpisode.

I'm just wondering what's up with her new bangs (no longer straight), lower eyelashes, and new ahoge. I get the time that's passed could've changed her appearance, but it just seems odd to suddenly acquire an ahoge.

Syo also seems to have acquired an ahoge with her new look.

Naegi's sister looks like Junko, same eyes, same hair almost (The fringe) the crossed arms.

Edit: Oops, someone already pointed that out.

I thought she was Mukuro for the longest time, myself. Not that there's much difference in that regard for obvious reasons, I suppose.

Uh oh, looks like we're getting the "Naegi and Junko's families are possibly related" theories now.....



Anyway, since we now know that Another Episode takes place between the two core games, I guess I'll be the first one to bring up SDR2 spoilers here:
