It was announced on the official website of the Danganronpa 3: The End of Kibougamine Gakuen series that Kibou-hen will be broadcast next week on Thursday, September 29.

According to scenes shown during the broadcast of the 11th and final episode of Zetsubou-hen, Kibou-hen may be related to the real second game. The 12th and final episode of Mirai-hen will be aired on September 26. Thus, Kibou-hen will serve as the finale for the entire Danganronpa 3 anime series.

Danganronpa 3: The End of Kibougamine Gakuen are related to Danganronpa 2: Sayonara Zetsubou Gakuen of the franchise, which aired as two separate arcs each week this season. Zetsubou-hen, which aired on Thursdays, was an original story based on the second game and serves as the prequel to the game; Mirai-hen, which aired on Mondays, is also an original story.

@otvku
It is listed as "Special", but it airs on TV.

Does anyone know if this will be on FUNimation too? I have an account, basically made an account just for Danganronpa and I'm wondering this is marked as "special" instead of "TV" will FUNimation get the rights to it?

Or I can watch it on another site... Just need to confirm that it will come out for streaming here. Do not want to wait for a Blu Ray release... Oh God, please. No.

Please let this be the hope destroying the despair. I already had enough with the death of the best girl*sniff*

I want to see Izuru choosing hope*pray*

Let the hope prevails~

More Dangan Ronpa is always welcomed <3 im satisfied with Zetsubou & Mirai-hen so far

Here's hoping that it clarifies what Izuru was doing (though they may also explain that in Future arc)

This sounds promising. I hope it's good.

No pun intended.

Yay! More Danganronpa! Good thing I've recently been watching Aria to counteract the despair we've been getting from DR3.

I "hope" they pull out a good ending. Zetsubou hen ending was trash, with so many things left unanswered and so much wasted potential.

Anyway, let's see what will happen. Kodaka is not a bad writer so he should know how to end his most popular series properly.

Keep in mind that Kodaka is not the one writing this series fully and he just does a main script for it, just the main key points.

For the entire series: DR/Zero (light novel) & Zetsubou-Hen, DR (game or anime),Super DR2 (game), Ultra Despair Girls (game), Mirai-Hen.

There are other light novels, I'm just not sure where they fall on the timeline.


Actually, Zetsubou-hen happens before DR0 and Despair Girls is between DR1 and SDR2.

The series should 100000% be experienced in the original release order, though. Namely,
DR1 > DR0 > SDR2 > UDG > DR3


Oh my, you're right; sorry about that.

Chronological wise, it's: DR3 Zetsubou-hen > DR1 (game or anime) > DR3 Kibou-hen (assuming) > DR2 (game) > DR3 Mirai-hen
But the way it should be watched is: DR1 > DR2 > DR3 Mirai-hen EP 1, then Zetsubou-hen EP 1, then Mirai-hen EP 2, then Zetsubou-hen EP 2 (and continue jumping back and forth). Kibou-hen should be watched last.

Oh my god, does that mean we're gonna see Ko animated in his iconic godly hoodie??

DR3 has been pretty fucking terrible but I'm a slave to this series so I have a duty to see it through to the end.

Wise words of a wise human

Damn, after I watched all the DR 1,2,3 now its ending, and DR V3 is completely different so far... Despair never dies...
