NBCUniversal Entertainment has announced at AnimeJapan 2016 that the upcoming TV anime Danganronpa 3: The End of Kibougamine Gakuen will be split in two parts. The first part, Mirai-hen, will begin airing in July 2016.

Mirai-hen features the main characters of the original Danganronpa game, which was adapted into a TV anime in 2013. The second part, Zetsubou-hen, will feature characters from 77th graduating class of Kibougamine Gakuen, who are featured in the Super Danganronpa 2 PlayStation Portable game. An airing date for Zetsubou-hen has not been scheduled.

An official website opened on Thursday with character designs from the Mirai-hen series. A new promotional video released at AnimeJapan reviews the story of the Danganronpa franchise.

Why? If it's because you don't have a Vita, the 2nd game was just released on Steam.

Another round of incredibly stupid super duper highschool kids with horrendous character design.

Never played any of the games but i honestly don't feel the need to considering how bad the anime was.


The game was much better than the anime, but the character designs are the same. I liked them though tbh.

@Black_Bandit21 The story writer for the games has stated that the DR3 anime is like a thank you present to the fans of the games. My guess is that the anime will assume you've played DR1 and SDR2, so there will probably be no summary and lots of references you won't understand. Even if there was any sort of summary, the main focus of the second season would be on the cast's origin stories, so it'd be short and much less impressive than if you experienced it fully from the game.

If you can't get the games on steam, there's complete playthroughs on youtube of the english and japanese dub. It's a bit of a time investment but knowing the story of the second game will definitely be crucial in understanding the upcoming anime. Increase the speed of the videos in the options if you have to, though it'd take a bit away from experiencing the voice acting.

I don't get it. So in this anime it will summarize the second game am I right? I really wanted that because I can't play the second game. :( Someone please answer meeeee

Confused as hell. Glad these games are out/releasing on PC so I can play them before this airs otherwise I'd be lost not having a second season. Should be good anyway.

So Zetsubou-hen will focus on komaeda's team before and until the incident.....
Well, AS LONG AS THERE IS KOMAEDA I'M ALL FOR IT.

Why would you? It's summarizing what happened in the 2nd game for the ones who haven't played it. For example: for me it's very useful because I will just watch the 3rd season of the anime without playing the game

That's a stupid thing to do, considering the second part is dedicated to the cast of the second game.

You will need the play the second game to have an understanding of both parts. The first part happens due to the events of the 2nd game, and the second part is a prequel(?) to the second game.
It takes place even before the first game. So probably prequel to everything.

If you're interested in seeing such in advance, I highly recommend you play or watch a playthrough of Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, the midquel side-story game. ;)

oh I already have :) delicious animated Komaeda was delicious but I need more.

Mar 27, 2016 12:45 AM by vikki7783

Well, I think it's kinda weird what they're doing here but of course I'm still watching.

Meh, I'll probably check it out.

I wasn't a big fan of how the first anime was.

Mar 26, 2016 4:12 PM by Bleachway

So from what i can gather is that the 2 season will be Originals where the 1st one will be about basically the 1st survivors & Future fundation vs the world,
while the 2nd one is more like a prequel of the second game explaining the moment when, how and why the Characters from the second game.

and then to make things complete, there is a 3rd Danganronpa game in the making which is not involved with the Anime and previous games right?

or am I completely stupid?

Hmm... okay I'm a bit confused here. So are we jumping from Danganronpa 1 to Danganronpa 3?

Since it does said "Taking place immediately after the events of Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair", does this mean anime-watcher have to play the 2nd game before watching the anime?


well better get the game or watch someone play it on Youtube because that is the case
