Gaming magazine Famitsu has announced that there will be a new original anime titled Super Danganronpa 2.5: Nagito Komaeda to Sekai no Houkaisha included with the Choukoukoukyuu no Gentei Box edition of the upcoming game New Danganronpa V3: Minna no Koroshiai Shingakki, which will be released on January 12, 2017. The original anime, as the title suggested, is focused around Nagito Komaeda as the main character instead of Makoto Naegi and Hajime Hinata.

Danganronpa is a suspense detective game developed by Spike Chunsoft. It has received various stage and anime adaptations, with Danganronpa 3: The End of Kibougamine Gakuen as the latest anime adaptation, with two arcs and a conclusive special Kibou-hen, which aired in Summer 2016.

No Danganronpa 2?
Oh well...Komaeda is here so will watch alright :)

Seeing more of Komaeda will always be a good thing. I'm looking forward to seeing if he can push the boundaries of his luck again. Be it before or after the coma, I'm looking forward to this. Doubtful, but maybe it'll go a bit into his 'secret' from the Friendship Events.

I love Danganronpa as a whole, so regardless of the focus, I'm sure to enjoy it.

On a side note, as someone who reads fairly slow and finds myself focusing on everything everyone says... As well as have my imagination wander here and there... By the time I finished the story as well as School/Island modes, IF, etcetera... I find myself in the minority for taking around eighty or more hours for both games.

About twenty-eight for Another episode, but that one is blatantly shorter.

Can I have the turtle badge?

This series has conflicted me so fkng hard I can't believe it. The ending made me pretty damn salty.

I will watch this, but I will feel very disappointed when doing it, even if its good.

I see Komae-fucking-da, I'm in.
Probably suck, but i'd still watch it for komaeda anyway.

@PurpleLugia
I was waiting for that CM since yesterday when I saw that along with the Kibou-hen ep. Thanks for the reminder.

Spike Chunsoft uploaded a video on their Youtube, a short trailer for the new video game, including the news about the bundle with the OVA. From it we can see the boxart for the OVA too.

Here's a link to the video

I don't understand the hype with this anime. It's okay at best, imo... People go mad over it


The games are pretty good. Fifty hour VNs though so most won't bother.

How in the world would DR ever take 50 hours to beat? My first playthrough of DR1 was 18 hours, and my first playthrough of DR2 was like 25.

Not trying to be rude or anything, but I'm just wondering.

So is this just an adaptation of this? Or is it gonna be about what he did before DR2? Either way, I'm still hyped

It apparently recounts how the DR2 cast woke up from their comas and then continues off from where DR3 left off. From the boat or something.

Nahh, they're barely pushing 20 hours. But they are pretty good, yeah.
DR1 was more like 20+, but SDR2 was probably 30 hours or more.

Sounds interesting as long as Komaeda blows something up. Might buy it if V3 has the limited edition out with the English release too.

Hell no... why do they keep making more of this trash? :(

It's just an OVA that comes in a limited edition pack. It's not like it's overstaying it's welcome.

Sep 29, 2016 4:34 PM by JewellTH

From the title, it sounds like instead of adapting DR2 were stuck with another original series this time set between DR2 and DR3. Oh well, I probably will watch this either way!

I know I'm in the minority but I have never cared for Nagito but I'll still check it out anyway.

I'll have to check my playtime when I get home. It certainly felt pretty long. Maybe it was the despair?

This franchise has become a mess.

URGH Komaeda is utter trash but more danganronpa is always welcome so HYPE

Sep 29, 2016 3:33 PM by aratinga

Damn people are going with the salt with DR3 and now this? Okay. Well, that's opinions so, I'm just saying that I'm not really mad at both so.

Well, I'm pretty open with new stuff coming from the series, and having an OVA for Komaeda, I think this would be interesting in all honesty.
