Danganronpa "3". Wouldn't it make storyline confusing?


No because it presumes you've played 2 and Another Episode

Yes to more mystery!! No to skipping DR2. I have never played the game and probably never will, so it sucks that they just skip it.

I think is more competent conclude the story as an anime, and telling the story in other way, rather than having another visual novel which would lead to another murder/mystery game and a new bunch of class trials. That wouldn't make any sense and it would be very hard to make this be coherent.
On the other hand, the producers are goning to end the series and begin a completely new arc, providing them with more freedom to allow class trials again.

Hopefully it airs in Spring so Kishi will be too busy with it to fuck up Phoenix Wright

PLEASE ACTUALLY MAKE IT GOOD THIS TIME


It's not a game adaptation so it already has a more promising potential
