Dangan Ronpa (which literally means, "winning an argument with a bullet" in English) is a game released for the Playstation Portable or PSP. It is Japan exclusive and was released on November 25, 2010. It is of the murder mystery visual novel/video game genre developed and published by Spike.

The game, on it's first week of release, sold 25,564 copies in Japan. This would make it the top selling PSP game of the week, and eighth across all platforms. After three months, the game sold 85,000 copies which, considered by Spike CEO, a sucess.

There is no English translation of the game, but there is a let's play of it on The Something Awful Forums (the LPer sorta translates the game for you in English)

Currently, Dangan Ronpa is set to have an anime series this coming Spring 2013.

Hello, everyone.
I recently got back to MAL and noticed this is the only existing Danganronpa club, and it hasn't been updated in quite a while (although the owner still logs on, it seems). Anyway, I made a club to determine the most popular characters, BGMs, cases, et cetera of the Danganronpa franchise. You may find it here. I'd love for you to join; after all, we need people to get some sort of accuracy.

I hope the owner of this club doesn't mind this, as it is in no way supposed to replace this club.

Alas, I wish to see you there.

@AnotherStatsGuy I dunno.... I'll just let myself get surprised XD

AnotherStatsGuy | Jul 13, 7:39 PM
Does anyone else have a sinking feeling that Naegi isn't going to make it through 3?

I can't see anyone other than Kirigir guaranteed to walk away from this.

@AnotherStatsGuy Let's see if your theories are right ;)
Yeah I'm also really excited XD

AnotherStatsGuy | Jul 12, 12:15 PM
I just watched the first episode. And I've so excited. I'm going 'Yes!', 'Yes!', 'Yes!' at seeing the remnants of Despair. (I guessed that Mahiru would act as publicist and Kuzuyruu would use Peko as a sort of high-level mook.) I'm so hyped that I put SDHSL Smartass on pause.

I already have like three theories. (All already added to DR3's WMG page on tvtropes.) None of them spoil what happens in the first episode.

#1 --- Two characters each think each other is the traitor. So they kill each other. (The Double KO) I'm betting Gozu (Wrestler) and Sakakura (Boxer).
#2 -- Fake-Out Death. Everybody will be surprised when this person shows up alive and well.
#3 --- Victims will be revealed out of order. Like Person A dies, and then Person B dies, only later, it turns out that Person B was dead way before Person A was even murdered.

@Akie It is VERY important! The second game and Ultar Despair Girls is also very important to understand the story for both arcs.

If you want to play the games, the order would be:
-Triger Happy Havoc: Danganronpa
-Super Danganronpa 2
-Danganronpa: Ultra Despair Girls

If you want to watch it the order would be:
-Danganronpa The Animation
(to understand Danganronpa 3 you will have to play Super Danganronpa 2 or you will have a hard time understanding what is going on)
-Danganronpa 3 the End of Hopes Peak Academy Future Arc
-Danganronpa 3 the End of Hopes Peak Academy Despair Arc

Have fun playing/watching ;)

@azure7 Yeah, Ultra Despair Girls was awesome :D

The first episode was amazing! The characters and the animation was great too! Can't wait to see the next one :D

Can someone explain to me the order in which it's recommended to play/watch Danganronpa?

I've played and completed the 1st game a little over a year ago. Don't really remember all of the plot details. Is the first game important for Dangan 3?

After that, what's recommended next?

azure7 | Jul 11, 3:01 PM
I finished Ultra Despair Girls last night. Was such a fun game, Fukawa was hilarious as usual. There's also an interesting novel about Hagakure at the end of the game.

On another note, what do you guys think of the first DR3 episode?!
. Also Monokuma's new voice will take a while to get used to
