I can't wait for it! I guess this is when all the summer animus are coming out, which means I can look forward to Gin no Saji coming out soon.

I just watched the first episode, having no other exposure to DR, and here are my disorganized and uninformed thoughts:

This translation is retarded. "Super Duper"? Really?

The character intros were pretty poorly done and don't tell you anything useful. They seem like they're there just to remind fans of the game.

There are too many characters for me to follow. Fortunately, this being a mystery, that'll fix itself.

Everyone has such crazy hair. I hope drill-hair gets into a fight with sea-urchin-head.

Personal theory: the first death happens when the guy with the pompadour trips and accidentally skewers himself.

So far, I'm rooting for Monobear, rich guy, fat catface man, and the blonde chick who looks like a Touhou. Everyone else can die, especially idol singer girl.

I think I'm going to enjoy this show.

I actually liked the introduction part. It was like "Okay seriously guys we've got 15 characters to run through. In one sentence you will gleam pretty much everything you need to know before they die."

It's pretty clear they're rushing the hell out of it, which I guess is to be expected if they're gonna fit the entire story in 13 episodes.
On another note, the art seems a bit funny - Maizono especially looks like she has a gigantic head and tiny hands.
I'm also liking most of the voice actors so far. (I never watched many of the trial videos of the LP, so this is my first time hearing a lot of the voices.)

It could be rushed. But it might also be a result of the jump from reading to hearing the game. I mean we read slower , right? And I guess there is no reason to take special interests in the surroundings in the same way the game did, with descriptions.

The art does seem pretty loose, I noticed that too.

Oh and I just found out yesturday that DR is actually getting a U.S. release. To the PS Vita I think. But the english name sounds so dumb. Dangan Ronpa : Trigger Happy Havoc.

...wot?

They may have well have called it Dangan Ronpa :Super Happy Fun School Shootout Kawaii Desu.

I guess you can count me along with others who are just too used to the LP's translation.

Trigger Happy Havoc doesn't really sound that bad to me, but I dunno, I do prefer the LP translation. It does makes sense to give it a pronounceable English title for an official release, though.

Also, whoo, episode 2! Shit just got real, and the blood is pink. I'm not really surprised given all the other details from the game we've seen.

As far as I know, the pink blood is because of Japanese censorship policy. A bunch of other anime have had various neon blood colors for the same reason.

I expect the Blu-ray release will recolor it red.

It was pink in the game because of rating issues--from what I understand, Japanese games can't have red blood unless they're 18+, so they went with pink. I haven't actually heard of it being an issue in anime (I'm curious about which anime you're talking about now), and in this case it seems more like a deliberate reference to the game. I may be wrong, though.

I was mostly thinking of Fist of the North Star and its white blood. There's also Bleach, DBZ Kai, Detective Conan, Bakemonogatari, and probably a lot of shows I'm forgetting.

Attached Image

Anyway, regarding the episode itself, things felt pretty rushed. They only spent maybe half a minute gathering evidence, so there's not much material for speculation until the trial starts. That said, I have some stupid theories that are almost definitely way off.

- Leon did it. Because 11037 looks like Leon upside-down, and that's good enough for me.
- At any rate, obviously the main character is going to be proved innocent, likely by the annoyingly cryptic white-haired girl, who I'm betting is the detective (because every mystery needs a detective).
- Since the idol singer's video made her look so unsympathetic, I'm guessing that each character is there for something other than their super specialness. Each of them probably did something that made Monobear think they were capable of murder under the right conditions.
- Junko faked her death. This is more wishful thinking than anything. It was also a cheap death, so it makes more sense if they're setting something up later. At least, I'm certain she's going to be important somehow.

The first time I encountered different colored blood was the black blood in the finale episode of School Days. I did figure it was for censorship. Same with DR yet for some reason I think the pink blood works stylistically with the game. Hot neon Pink blood. What in the world were these kids doing before going to the academy?

Anyway as far as episode 2 is concerned. I find myself seeing a pattern in how this is all going to pan out. The culprit will probably be voted on and executed by episode 3. This is all going to go lightning fast. Honestly I don't like that but like the translation choices I guess you can blame the LP. It was a text/screenshot LP updated roughly once a week. So it was definitely slow, giving readers time to marinate on what happened between updates. But in this anime I swear there was no "investigation" The scenes just went from Naegi's room *sweep* Find broken glass ball *sweep* Find burnt piece of jacket near the furnace. The characters didn't really talk about what these clues meant. It was just- okay we found them- okay investigation time over, GET ON THE ELEVATOR!

Of course in the game you get a lot of talk about the evidence and what it could insinuate, some bits get more attention than others and it is up to the player to string the evidence together into how the murder happened or how the culprit tried to dispose of the evidence.

Oy, and we got a lot of characters to kill. I'm almost certain they won't try to incorporate the game's free time moments. Time given to investigations may change as the cast shrinks. Not that that's an excuse but...

OK, the fourth episode's sold me on this show.

The opening is amazing.
Monobear is amazing.
Togami is amazing.

This was the best episode so far and I hope the rest of the show keeps up this level of quality. It's a shame the murderer this time was so obvious, though.

WE'RE SO SMART. WE'RE SUPER HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL DETECTIVES.

Also, I'm betting her promise was that she didn't shower.

Togami is pretty cool. In a "You're such a bastard" sort of way.

Apparently the game developers had planned out executions for every student. Including the victim students. Maizono got a particularly nasty one in my opinion. I wish the anime would animate some of these.

Also that weird intro song. I have no idea what its called. But I want it.

The song's called Never say Never.

The anime just gets better by the minute, but with NIS localizing it, I don't wanna spoil myself more than I already have.

Lol that isn't the song I'm talking about. I can't even explain it because its entirely in Japanese. It's a woman singing and Monobear interjecting with some word. And the graphic is that of the "argument rebuttal" mini game. (Its Dr. O's signature actually)



Sayaka Maizono's Final Performance - Maizono is placed on a stage that shaped in a form of giant mantrap along its edge, complete with a meter to score her. She is required to sing in order to fill the aforementioned meter until it's full. However, just as the meter is about to reach the highest score, Monobear destroys it, triggering the 'Failure' condition. This causes the giant mantrap to slam shut, killing Maizono instantly. This execution is only shown in the Official Fanbook.

Please forgive this double post. But I had actually forgotten that a group of people had set forth with a project a while back, to translate the full game into English. So if you just want to watch the game in full and actually understand what is happening then watch it on this channel :


Apparently this group didn't follow Orenronen's translation to the letter and that anally frustrates some of the fans (Like Slowbeef) But its not like the official English release of this game is going to follow his translation either (Super Duper...ugh.) so screw em.

I've heard the official release is actually just using "Ultimate". NISA and Funimation are doing different translations apparently.

And isn't this the group that originally came up with "Super Duper" anyway? That's what it looks like anyway. People fault them for leaving words untranslated or using weird replacement words, but until the game actually comes out that patch does more than enough to get everything across.

Also the 5th episode came out. It was pretty good.
