Byakuya and Touko for me. At least until next episode.

Not that I’m implying anything, upupupu.

Anonymous says:

Seems more likely there would be a DR Zero OVA.

I guess my choice from now on will be Genocider and Byakuya.

Dark_Sage says:

DR Zero? As in, an entirely new Danganronpa story? I suppose it could work, but I’d rather see Danganronpa specials that focus on the side stories only seen in the game and then a Danganronpa IF OVA before they start filling in any backplot, since the story’s already written and ties into Danganronpa 2.

Danganronpa/Zero is a pair of prequel novels written before SDR2 came out, which provide some insight into certain aspects of the world and tie into both games.

IF is basically a fanfic written by Ryohgo Narita (the guy who did Baccano and Durarara) included in SDR2 as a fun little extra.

Dark_Sage says:

Huh. Didn’t even know there was shit out there other than IF. Are the novels good? Cuz IF was pure fun.

Thanks for the translation of the game, BTW. You and the rest of the crew did a solid job on that thing.

The novels are pretty good, yeah. Not quite on par with the game, though that’s largely due to pacing issues. The first book is almost entirely setup, so it kind of drags, and all the juicy stuff is in the second book, which (despite being longer) feels like it goes a lot quicker.

And thanks! Glad you enjoyed it. A couple aspects of the script’s style were influenced directly by this site (off the top of my head, writing “wh-what” instead of “w-what” for stuttering), so you can claim to have had a hand in it if you want.

Dark_Sage says:

I’ll check the novels out sometime in a future when they’ve been translated then… probably. Can’t say for certain since my attention span ain’t the bes– Sweet, I’ve got an in with the Dangan cosplayers now. \o/

figo says:

Sakura is objectively the best (read: not your favourite) girl.

Calyrica says:

Kirigiri best girl. Has been since ep 1. And here’s hoping it never changes!

Dark_Sage says:

VN Spoilers. (They’re minor, but I don’t suggest reading this if you don’t want to have your expectations set in one way or another.)

If Aoi doesn’t win in episode 9, I’m going to break some shit.
anon says:

Character relationship specials and IF ova are the only acceptable BD specials for this show.

Actually meant to do this when I posted the other comment, but I got distracted. Oh well.

Hagakure and Genocider here, simply because I had the most fun writing them. As terrible of a person as Hagakure is, he’s the only guy left with a really interesting voice.

Mitsukai says:

I loved the game to death, and I want to love the anime equally, but it’s so hard; it’s not bad per se, but to anyone who’s played the game, it becomes obvious how rushed it is. Oh well. Togami/Kirigi for me.

On an unrelated note, DS you compared Danganronpa to 999 and VLR in an article a week or so back, and pointed out how you’d rate them in terms of best to worst in a handful of categories. I was curious what your take between the three was for their soundtracks.

Anonymous says:

The anime is really bad, it’s a shame. Even if you didn’t play the game you easily notice the flaws.

Dellaran says:

I thought I was the only one who thought that. I think it is over hyped. The script (raw script) is badly written. The characters start to yell the same words over and over again once they were considered suspects. I mean, heck it sure is difficult to guess who’s the culprit from that point onwards. The animation is great though, especially during the executions. I haven’t played the game so I can’t judge it. I can’t say it’s a bad adaptation as well, but the anime could’ve been much better.

Dark_Sage says:

The game handles it slightly better, but this is a rather faithful adaptation in terms of what happens.

Dark_Sage says:

I’m the worst when it comes to anything involving music or the rating thereof. I don’t pay attention to it like most people do. So even if I were to rate it, it’d be meaningless.

Nevreen says:

I’m surprised Asahina is still alive. I had her pegged as the murderer for this one. Oh well, she remains best girl until she commits the next murder~

Solaristics says:

\o/ Kirigiri always best girl, but after that ending on episode 7, I was leaning towards Sakura.

Sammie says:

I knew it was Celestia~
She was my favorite, so I’ll go with Asahina from now on.

Mikoto says:

> Burn baby, burn.

lol, no. She didn’t burn at all, she was run over by the fire engine.

Naegi, because Togami is too smarmy and Hagagure is a freak.

Kirigiri best girl!

Hope someone does Aoi in next, she’s going on my nerves. Best case would be if she gets killed by Sakura, then we’re rid of that abomination as well.

Yumi-chan says:

Kyoko Kirigiri best girl. I’m looking forward to seeing her death~
Byakuya Togami best boy. I’m looking forward to seeing his death~
Monokuma best bear. I’m looking forward to seeing his death~

DatSandwich says:

Yumi-chan best random on the internet. I’m looking forward to seeing their death~
