Excited for the anime, worried for fans that didn't play the game.

Yes! I am so excited! I've been waiting forever for this! I feel bad for the people who just watched the anime and will just assume that this continues off of it (It does, but it's still kind of confusing) They'll be so dumbfounded with everything they're talking about, like the Remnants of Despair xD

This is probably going to get a really crappy score on MAL considering that there are a lot of people who only watched the anime and has no knowledge of the games, and despite that will still most likely watch this too and be confused out of their minds. Otherwise I'm really looking forward to this.


Yes, unfortunately there will be a bunch of people who come into this and have only watched the DR1 anime, so they are bound to be confused. The best thing that we the gamers can do for them is to point them in the right direction and hopefully they will go and watch a LP/play SDR2.


Well there's always that, but I'm sure that there are also thousands of other users who don't even glance at the forum section of MAL, so will still be mislead.

It is the same video as the one on the news post, though, unless it is region-locked in your region... (I apologize if that's the case because it is playable here at my place).

Why did they have to change Monokuma's VA? That's a bummer. I hope there won't be such a big difference,that would be such a turn-off. Thank god they kept the VAs for the rest; they just HAD TO.
Too bad there's no Togami(or Fukawa),nothing will be the same.
I'm so happy, I just want July to come sooner.


Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with dementia in 2015.
Btw here's a sample of the new Monokuma voice.

Oh my god,really? That's too sad.


Heh it doesn't sound that bad. It's like a younger Monokuma somehow.

Apr 26, 2016 7:43 AM by DatRandomDude

Why isn't Byakuya included in the cast? He is my favorite guy in the first game.

Gotcha. I've never played the game (I'm not super duper interested personally), but I was just wondering . Thanks.


No Problem.

Ryouta is in both Zetsubou-hen and Mirai-hen, as you can see from here and here (or official site). I just put according to what news page of the official site put, so I'm sorry I didn't add Miaya Gekkougahara, which as you mentioned too that there's no seiyuu listed for her.


Yeah I realised I made a mistake there and that the Ryouta in Zetsubo-hen is "impersonating" the Ryouta from Mirai-hen, so thanks for clarifying.

Nice I'm looking forward to this, now I know a lot of people were shitting on Danganronpa 1 anime, but hey I enjoyed it.

Ah. Komaeda. I'm glad.

As you can see you've put Ryouta in both parts when he's only in Zetsubou-hen. You're also missing a character from Mirai-hen, Miaya Gekkogahara, but they don't have a VA meaning they either are never going to talk, or has been kept hidden for spoilers.

Mirai-hen is a sequel to DR2 about DR1 cast which was never adapted so either play the game on Vita or Stream or watch LP.

Zetsubou-hen is a prequel to the events of DR1 about the DR2 cast and how the tragedy occurred.

Also do we know what the relations are yet? Like, is Mirai-hen a sequel to Zetsubou-hen?
