Danganronpa - Q & A

This thread is for those of you with questions about the Danganronpa anime or manga. There are many questions that don't need a whole thread to discuss them. A simple practical answer straight from the anime or manga without any speculation can solve these connundrums. If someone has such a question about Dangan Ronpa which can be solved by answering with facts from an official source, then please ask that question here.

Please don't post in this thread unless you are asking a question or answering one. Please remember that it only takes 1 person to answer a question. And don't speculate! You can only reply with cold, hard, merciliessly unforgivable facts. If you have to speculate, then please just tell the querrant that no answer is known, but here are some facts that might help him make up his own mind.



Make sure you use spoiler tags if your question is about the anime, manga, or any non-anime source. Untagged spoilers are risking a ban. There are two ways to create clearly marked spoiler tags, as shown in the following:

The easy way: By simply clicking on this icon which can be found in the Quick Reply or Reply to Thread template. This is how I create spoiler tags.
or
The macho way: By using those uber vB codes as shown in the following...

Spoiler Tag Example
[spoiler=title, i.e. your reason for the spoiler tag]Don't forget to use a title for the spoiler![/spoiler]
...becomes...
Spoiler for title:

I wonder what will happen if there is only 2 students left? We know for sure it is one of the two and I don't think the murderer will confess

Can anyone say me what Dangan Ronpa IF is? Is it an official novel or the same case as with Fate/strange fake? Should I read it after finishing the 1st game or only after 2nd one? Or maybe I can read it even before them?

Finishing 1st game is a must because Dangan Ronpa IF is an AU. Besides, it spoilers pretty much all important twists from the 1st game.
BTW, a nice example there. The same author, after all.

It is official: you actually get to read it with Super Dangan Ronpa 2. It is thus an official AU.

Depends. Do you like phoenix wright-esque visual novels?

When in doubt you could watch the first two or three episodes and THEN decide whether to play the game or not.

If you are intent on playing the game at all, then don't watch the anime first since it will spoil everything and make the gameplay way too easy.

I'd say play the game, othwerwise you probably won't be able to take it, knowing the solutions already, considering the 2 hrs + per case.

In the game did we see what was on Leon's DVD? or was only Naegi's and Sayaka's revealed.

Actually, in the game as well, we don't know anything about any DVD content aside of Makoto and Sayaka, except some implied content with very few characters, like Sakura.

I have a question over here.

Is the story that is shown in the game the same as the story in the anime?

I am asking because I would assume it is, and that the killers and victims are the same, however:

Spoiler for Minor Spoiler w/o Names:

Thank-you very much.

I see, thank-you very much.

I have one more question, it is regarding the Manga.

The Manga is publishing since the 14th of April, 2011. Now, has the story of our characters being trapped in the school already finished in the Manga, or is it still On-Going?
If it has already finished, what happened afterwards?

Spoiler for Click Only If You Know The Ending:


Edit: I'm terribly sorry for the double-post, wasn't aware the previous one was mine.

The manga isn't complete but close to. However, it is -really- not a good idea to read it except if you want flat out spoilers or if you are a game player.
The reason is that the manga tells the story from the victims/culprits perspectives, hence the main plot is ignored and just go straight to "business".

And even so, the manga has too many inconsistencies to be really canon, although few things are more or less connecting the dots.

Also, Super Danganronpa 2 is basically another setup but still within the same universe with some major connections with DR1. You ought to play DR1 before otherwise SDR2 wouldn't make much sense, but the cast is completely new.

I see, thank you very much for clearing that up.

One last question if I may, was there any word around making a sequel of the story, in either Anime, Manga, or Game way?

If Super Danganronpa 2 is that intended sequel, it's a bit "not cool" if it doesn't have the same characters that have already went through the whole challenge.
