Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak Academy - Anime General Discussion
 
New anime original series confirmed!
http://i.imgur.com/XEYIkho.jpg
Main writer of Danganronpa series Kazutaka Kodaka will provide new original story that will conclude storyline presented in games "Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc" and "Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair".
Main staff or first series that adapted first game is returning as well.

New anime is unrelated new game that will reboot series and tell new story.

Basically, it'll concluded the story of the kids of Hope's Peak before the sequel tells a completely new story. I'm getting excited.

Cool.:cool:

Wait... 3? Where's 2? Am I missing something here or does this mean I have to play the second game to know what the heck is going on in this anime?:twitch:

Not only 2, but you likely have to play Another Episode also and perhaps even read Zero.

This isn't meant to be a sequel to the first anime, but a series to warp up the hanging plot threads from the games and finish the story for the game/franchise fans since V3 is looking like it's going to be a reboot of the franchise.

So I guess the 3rd game in development won't have any characters from the first two games? They should package this anime for western audiences with the 3rd game then so they don't miss out.

Well you can always watch a youtube longplay. Just think of it like a long movie. It's actually not as bad as you think.

Is 2 connected to the first game? I haven't played the 2nd game too and I was surprised when I see this.

Yes, some of the CGs in the PV are taken from the 2nd game. Some characters from 1 also return in 2.


Man, short-hair Naegi looks weirdly similar to Hinata (SDR2 MC), minus additional and sharper ahoge. :heh:

Ugh, there's so much about this that rubs me the wrong way. First of all, it's a confusing move for them to shift the conclusion of the game series (where the main fanbase is) to an anime (where the average watcher have neither the context nor interest for it) and continuing the mainline game series in a reboot. If they're trying to appeal to a new audience they're just going about it the wrong way.

They should've just made two games to conclude the series and start a new reboot/spinoff series. Not to mention the first anime was terribly mediocre (and lerche is on duty again) which is the clincher. Going in this direction means the loss of interest from the original fanbase and gambling on attracting a new audience (and the shrinking fanbase) with the very confusingly marketed v3 reboot.

According to Kodaka, the series will feature content that can only be expressed within the anime medium.

MeoTwister5 2015-12-03 08:28

So in other words if you're like me who played both games, I have to watch this to have a meaningful conclusion to the Danganronpa story before they reboot everything in the third game? That's... slightly insulting to those of us who stuck with the game series.

Marina2 2015-12-03 09:15

Oh, the I thought the writer has forgottten about Asahina-san.

GreyZone 2015-12-04 17:05

Considering Seiji Kishi will also direct Assassination Classroom in the same year, which will most likely be 2 cours long again, the DR3 anime will most likely air in summer or fall.

marvelB 2015-12-04 19:08

Yeah, I find this a.... rather unusual direction for the series to take. I mean, I get DR3 is apparently a reboot and all, but I don't feel an anime is necessary to conclude the plot from the first few games (and it doesn't help that the second game's adaption gets skipped altogether). Well, maybe the fact that this is original content means that it won't be rushed like the first game's adaption.... I hope.

dark998 2015-12-05 00:14

Never watched the Danganronpa anime but I have finished the first two games so checking this new follow up is a must. Will make sure to finish Another Episode too before the broadcast.

Some info:
  • Originally, they were going to make an anime of Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair.
  • They wanted to create something that would involve Class Trials, but because it would be too painful for the students of Hope’s Peak Academy to kill each other again, they decided to conclude with an anime.
  • The anime immediately follows Danganronpa 2.
  • There will be developments you wouldn’t imagine, as well as many new characters.
  • They believe this story can only be told through anime.
  • If they made a game instead of an anime, they might not have been able to do the serious things they planned for the anime.
  • Although there aren’t any investigation elements, there will be suspense.

Stark700 2016-03-22 05:23

Anime will have 12 new characters.

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)

Stark700 2016-03-25 21:10

Apparently it will start July (Summer 2016)

SilverSyko 2016-03-25 21:22

Wow so the entire cast of Danganronpa 2 are going to be in it as well. I guess their "deaths" in the virtual world didn't actually kill them. No sign of Nanami though which makes sense.

Kind of makes me feel bad for those who really liked characters who died in the first game. :heh:
