Dont worry the rest of them dont have quite as blatant clues.

Also it helps if you skip all the other comments in the threads, because there are so many people throwing out so many speculations that some are bound to stick.

If you insist, I can give you my impressions so far.

Ch. 1

- Jesus, the video Makoto got was really unnerving, as intended.

- I kinda knew Sayaka was going to, if not so fast. Dangan Ronpa is clearly a dark game so killing off the first person our hero, got close to, not to mention one he was developing anime feelings for, would sound right up its alley.

- I thought it was a little weird that Junko was brushed off to the side a little after her death scene..

- What I WASN'T expecting was the revelation that Sayaka was intending to kill Leon and frame Makoto for it.

- Didn't really feel much for Leon.


- Togami's a little shit. He's smart, and a lot of his ideas work, but holy shit man.

- I really was not OK with killing off Chihiro so fast. He was such a sweetheart.


- So it's not Syo, and it's not Togami, but, Mondo, the honorable punk who not only had a sweet bonding moment with Chihiro, but the man Chihiro looked up to? I am not happy. And the social link content with those two? Like seriously, way to drive the stakes through my heart.

- So far, the game seems intent on killing off the more likable and affable characters first, and from what I've seen of chapter three (the chapter intro), it seems Aoi is up next. REALLY hoping Sakura isn't the culprit this time.

Also, everything about Kyouko shouts "I'M IMPORTANT, PAY ATTENTION TO ME". I mean, I like her, but they could have made it a little more subtle.

tl;dr: Fuck this game.
>> No. 82066
(CH2)Dangan Ronpa is anime as fuck by design, I think making Kirigiri blatant fits the tone.

>DR0 volume 1 ending
I know, right? The game itself does sometimes devolve into "yes, thank you, we get it" at times, but it kind of works in a visual medium and it's pretty necessary in a mystery game with so many things going on. In prose it's the literary equivalent of the Somme: a repetitive, futile slog. It's kind of telling that DR0 is considered one of the better light novels out there.

Characters like Sakura give me hope that we'll see more characters that totally break traditional anime cliches. I admit it's what drew me back into anime and anime-styled games after a long stretch of being turned off from the genre entirely. I saw too many anime that looked identical to bad anime spoofs, and it was disheartening.

The wonderful part was that Sakura isn't really a joke character. Hell, there was maybe one single joke about her appearance from Ishimaru, and a couple from Hagakure, but she was treated fairly seriously all things considered.
>> No. 82415
That's why I liked her. I was kind of hoping all of the characters would be like her, honestly (they'd all be set up to be a complete subversion of an anime stereotype, especially since this is a horror series, and those are all about twists), but alas, was not the case.

There have been a few mirrors, at one point, but they have been taken down. The LP guy doesn't want his translations hosted off SA, for reasons that aren't total bullcrap--he really could get a cease & desist if it's reposted elsewhere and then there would be no free Dangan Ronpa for anybody. Apparently the game company IS aware of the thread, but just hasn't made any moves to do anything about it yet. Possibly because there is nowhere else to get it, and because the LP guy is offering to get SA memberships for anyone who orders the actual game (because the LP is actually a complete translation). Dangan Ronpa probably will not be hosted on the Let's Play archives ever.

I just use my friend's old account to get around the paywall. If you've got a few friends who keep getting locked out too, splitting 10$ between everyone to read the thread whenever you want isn't so bad.

Am I the only one who didn't like Seto no Hanayome that much? Maybe because I don't like romantic comedies much to begin with but most of the humor was the same stuff I've seen in a million other shows, or otherwise lazy. Only ones I liked generally were the stuff dealing with Masa.

Ideally, I'd get Jim Cummings to do his Winnie The Pooh voice/whoever does Mickey Mouses' voice for the dubbed voice of Monobear, because I want that same jarring, creepy feeling Japan got when they heard Doraemon telling kids to murder each other.

This wasn't the OP from the subs I watched? I guess the subbers could have been so embarrassed by the rapping that they replaced it with a song from the actual game...

But yeah, the show's animation is really bad. I wasn't expecting much since it's made by the same people who did the P4 anime, but it was on a completely different level of awful.

I have to confess to finding the DR anime spoiler ads on SA pretty funny, but the jokes on me, there's one for DR2 now as well, and it got me with one straight up spoiler at least.

It's just astoundingly low-budget. The characters hardly move, which they try to cover up with a lot of camera panning, and it's choppy when they do thanks to a lack of tweens. Also, everyone has tiny hands and sometimes their eyes kind of fall off their face. The only character animated with any care is Monokuma, and even then... ugh.

Think Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, but with less frames per second.

Oh, and they literally traced the game's sprites. Most of the characters' poses and expressions were ripped directly from it.

This part with Fukawa is especially bad because they tried to make her shiver, but they fucked up and she just pulses weirdly. I don't know how to make gifs so I can't show you, but damn it is so amateurish. It's astounding how amateurish it is. There are kids on deviantart who animate better than the guys doing this cartoon.

I refreshed a bunch on the thread and never saw a spoiler ad. Maybe they were taken down? The whole thing is pretty funny though, if a little sad.

I'm primarily concerned with how they'll handle the characters themselves.

The way Kanji was handled in P4A rubbed a lot of folks the wrong way by filling it with "HEY GUYS LOOK AT ALL THESE GAYS. ISN'T OUR INTERPRETATION OF KANJI'S STRUGGLE TO BE ACCEPTED FOR WHO HE IS FUNNY?"
>> No. 83923
>The characters hardly move, which they try to cover up with a lot of camera panning, and it's choppy when they do thanks to a lack of tweens
So yeah I guess it is kind of like Jojo then. Thank god for the second part's budget increase.
>> No. 83924
The first episode is pretty much exactly how it was in the game, and I don't expect that to change. I'm a bit worried for Chihiro, but to be honest the game fumbled pretty bad already when it came to dealing with Chihiro's gender and I don't think the anime will do much worse.

It is much more egregious in Dangan Ronpa imo. I just feel like the whole thing radiates a lack of caring from everyone involved in its creation.
>> No. 83933
I read through Dangan Ronpa IF on my kindle, it's a lot of fun. (DR1 spoilers)It's about the bonus ending where Naegi gets the Escape Switch, and focuses on Mukoro. You also get to see Mondo and Sakura break fucking bad, it's awesome.

Yet again, Narita is based.

The LP was recently archived on the LP site, so I've been catching up on where I had originally left off-- the first time I had seen a paywall, I stopped, not knowing they sporadically put it up and took it back
down again. I'm gonna finish this, and then start watching the anime.

My only complaint is that certain events are set in stone. X is always killed by Y at certain points in the game. I wish there was a version where you could mess around with that. Special win conditions like "Get all characters who were murdered in the original game to murder the characters who originally killed them," "Kill everyone as Naegi and successfully leave the school without getting caught," "Leave the school with nobody getting murdered," etc.

Well, Monokuma sounds more or less what I imagined his English voice to be, so that's good.

I dunno about the rest though; Thank god for dual audio.

There's still the whole ">Buying a Vita" problem, though.
