Synopsis

Hope's Peak Academy's unconventional class 77-B is about to have an even more eccentric addition: Chisa Yukizome, an alumna with the title of Super High School-Level Housekeeper—and their new homeroom teacher. Cheerful, passionate, and capable, Chisa immediately sets about correcting the students' problematic behavior and strengthening their relationships. It may not be easy dealing with diverse pupils ranging from princesses and nurses to yakuza and impossibly lucky students, but anything is possible with the power of hope.

Meanwhile, Hajime Hinata, an unremarkable boy from the school's Reserve Course, longs for a talent. One day, he has an unexpected meeting with class 77-B's Super High School-Level Gamer Chiaki Nanami, who presents to him a new, hope-filled outlook on life. However, unbeknownst to him, the school's upper echelon is about to execute a sinister project centered around Hajime that will bring Hope's Peak—and the rest of the world—to its knees.

Zetsubou-hen chronicles the daily lives carried out at the talent-cultivating academy, and the darkness that lurks beneath. As despair slowly infects hope, plans are put into motion to start the Biggest, Most Awful, Most Tragic Event in Human History, and the end begins.

I was worried about this going in as anyone who knows the games knows that this arc is going to be lacking sunshine and rainbows. I mean it's called the despair arc and it isn't kidding. The way Crunchyroll presents the two arcs takes the pressure off this, however. Splitting the episodes up really helps take the edge off while not breaking the flow. If you're a fan of the games, watch this. If not, skip it. The rest will be written assuming knowledge of at least the mainline games.

This addresses the gaps in the timeline so far, while also feeding into the Future arc. ...

Mixed Feelings
First of all, this show contains massive spoilers for Danganronpa 1 & 2, so don't watch the show or read this review unless you've played those games.

This show isn't awful, you can watch it without suffering from intense boredom. That being said though, it's not good, I'd say all in all, the show had a few bad, a few OK, and ONE good episode, and the good one wasn't outstanding either.

Story 4/10: "There is nothing scarier than our own imagination" is probably the best summary of how I feel about the story. Danganronpa 1 and 2 left us without answers as for how Junko managed ...

Shortly put, I wish I hadn't watched Danganronpa 3 anime. In addition to being absolutely idiotic on its own, it pretty much ruins DR2, which I loved to pieces. I can't bring myself to rate any DR stuff lower than 4 even though I would want to... well, there were some good moments, too, I guess. Anyway, Monokuma claimed repeatedly that all the info he's providing in ch6 of DR2 is true, but... guess what, it wasn't. And forget all about Junko being some great mastermind who can charm anyone to her side. Nah. That's not how it went. Other reviews surely go into greater ...
