Komaru will save the day or take a nap trying
Do I have to play Another Episode? Nagito appears on that shit right? So do Byakuya and Toko along with Naegi's sister, there's no way they won't bring that shit up
But everyone keeps saying the game sucks balls and I don't even have a Vita, would watching the cutscenes on YouTube be enough or do I have to sit through some faggot playing the levels as well?
There's a guy on YT that stitched all the cutscenes together, but it's the dub if you're ok with that.
There's another dude that has videos of the entire game subbed but he left in the gameplay too. I watched this one and just skipped the gameplay parts on my own.
At least the victims of DR1's Case 3 were intrinsic to the case. Akane and Ibuki were easily interchangeable victims and Saionji could've been replaced by literally anyone around that wasn't Gundham, Nagito, or Nanami without messing up the story.
Because she is a brocon (shown in DRAE)
Mikan is real though, right?
Akane wasn't anywhere nearly as gullible in her disease state as Ibuki. Her disease was essential to Mikan's plan in order to get her to actual crime scene without any trouble.
Can't wait for best girl to return in the animu.
>Chiaki on the same class as the remnants of despair
>Isn't a remnant of despair herself
So is it safe to assume that she's dead and the Nanami we see in SDR2 is a tribute to her in some way by the Future Foundation?
I don't know why Hiyoko couldn't react to seeing herself older.
Hiyoko was beginning to change and had a lot of potential for character development but they decided to throw away that opportunity.
which of the girls stuck on secret base island have the biggest tits?
>They made her real just so I have to see her die again
Why would they do this to me? I was legit crying during the 5th trial and now I'm gonna have to experience that
despaironce again, just fuck my shit up already
>Akane and Ibuki were interchangeable victims
I dunno about that. Mikan had her memories back and was in despair mode, remember? Who would she get greater despair from killing off, Akane or a member of her old circle of friends?
>and Saionji could've been replaced by literally anyone around that wasn't Gundham, Nagito, or Nanami without messing up the story.
Nah, like with Hifumi & Celeste, Mikan & Hiyoko were pretty much a set that bounce off of each other character-wise. I would've chosen someone else myself but not because killing Saionji off made no sense or anything.
You're saying that the selection of characters involved were random/interchangeable to others as opposed to DR1's case 3, but all three chicks involved in DR2's case 3 were plot-related to each other too
Also the anon in the original chain of posts was right, both DR1's case 3 and DR2's case 3 featured a waste of character potential and were comparitively weaker cases in most aspects, contrary to the other anon saying that DR1 didn't have a case like that.
>I was legit crying during the 5th trial
That's a good point, although considering how unnatural and personality-changing the Despair Disease was, I think they could've easily rewritten it for Akane, or anybody really, to have been the one affected.
>Mikan & Hiyoko were pretty much a set that bounce off of each other character-wise
Trust me, if Mikan had killed Hiyoko to get back at her for all the bullying I'd have absolutely no problems with it whatsoever. That the ONLY reason Hiyoko died was because she wandered into the crime scene is retarded and means it could've been anybody else.
i think i remember reading that it was supposed to be fuyuhiko, but the game developers wanted him alive for peko memories or some shit later on, and they thought it'd be too depressing if he had to suffer her death and then get killed himself, so they changed it to hiyoko
Not him but I'd love to hear who you think would make a better victim. Writers themselves refused to pick Kuzuryu and I'd wager that clumsy slut would have much more trouble killing someone her size.
Just Fuyuhiko (who the devs have commented about, apparantly?) and Sonia, I think
Akane and Nagito couldn't be the 2nd kill for obvious narrative-restricting reasons within that case
Nidai, Gundham, and Souda were fundamentally integral to Case 4, you could've shifted Fuyuhiko's role in it over to Souda too I guess
Hajime and Chiaki were no-go's too.
That's everyone, right?
>That the ONLY reason Hiyoko died was because she wandered into the crime scene is retarded
I can agree that I'd rather there wasn't a double kill at all
>and means it could've been anybody else.
nah, the reason Hiyoko went there at all was convincing enough and I can't see why anyone else would go there
Kuzuryuu would've been a waste of a character too, they did the right call not killing him. I think Sonia should've been given the boot, she didn't develop to be a very interesting character.
I think that's kind of the point. Mikan doesn't have any good reason to kill. Junko's followers don't need a reason. It's uniquely reprehensible in a way that no other case really is. It's good for variety and gives a rare look into the mindset of the UDs.
Who fucked Junko's mutilated corpse?
DID SOMEBODY SAY HOPE
Big force for good right here.
Why didn't they kill each other before though? Because they had funnier things to do? I though they were working together to bring despair to the world, if Mikan regained her memories than why did she wanted to kill everyone? Just to get away from the island?
Did she know that it was VR at this point since her memories came back?
she realized right before the punishment
Were gonna see something about Killer Killer on the Future arc?
He doesn't create despair, that's the point. He helps already existing despair develop so that hope's victory can be more meaningful. He has absolute belief that hope will triumph despair after all.
Why are you here if you haven't played the game?
On the other note I remember them actually having executions for all characters from DR1 (in order to prevent some kind of a leak or something). Do they have the same for DR2 cast?
She remembered it was VR, and she also remembered why they had agreed to be put into VR, which was specifically to kill one another at Junko's behest until their numbers were reduced to 5.
I did but I did it long ago, I don't remember the finer details. I remember how she was talking about the love that was taken from her though and how that confirmed Junko's reappearance for me.
I am curious what people think.
>He didnt do shit in AE until the very end
He played a minor but integral role in Komaru even surviving at all. Monaca did rely on him, albeit covertly.
His plan ultimately failed (even if he did get a cute despair daughterfu out of it) but he was doing his usual "encourage great despair so that even greater hope can spawn from it" the entire time.
I like Daimon because he talks about dicks.
to block sleeping gas from entering his lungs so he can kill housekeepers
Kind off a shame Nagito didn't get to spend much time with her. Maybe he told her where he was going so she could go and pick him up
and slaughter the remaining UDs with Monobots.
So does this news about NG codes make her chances of living better or worse?
so there's no way this guy will either kill anyone or be killed himself, right?
Sharply elevates her odds of sacrificing herself for Naegi because if breaking the code doesn't immediately kill you she'll be able to go through with it before he realizes it's happening
Jataro was the most memorable one for me when playing through the game for some reason so him I guess.
Nagisa had the biggest character arc out of the four.
Kotoko was interesting, felt that the way they delivered her backstory felt a bit too hamfisted though.
Masaru was fine for the time he was given but retired from the plot just as he was starting to have presence I feel.
Something that was mentioned at the early screening. Probably next episode, they all get given No Good codes that will force them to do or not to do certain things in order to further hinder them. If violated, they move up the shortlist of people for the traitor to kill.
>when she's not the one doing all the investigating anymore which was why people wanted her to die in the first place
It wouldn't be unexpected but I'd still find it weird.
I'd rather Makoto dies to be honest. Nothing against the character himself, this entire hope v despair conflict is just inherantly kinda dumb and even characters within the story seem to be picking up on that now.
Komaeda's a little different from your average despairfag. He doesn't want despair to triumph, he's still extremely hopesexual and that part hasn't changed one bit. It's just that this whole Junko deal simply enabled this wacko to reach the point where his hopetrain had no brakes, I mean let's face it, he's fucking insane anyway.
He is obsessed with Junko though, that goes without saying.
how can you not love this fuckin guy?
She is going to stay hopeful till the end trying to not let her classmates fall into darkness and will die in the end at the hands of Hajime.
And despair started from Mikan obviously.
It would drive to despair, the guy literally carried these shitters
Sugita's voice acting aside, I didn't care for him too much until Case 4 (not just the trial, but the entire chapter. Him & Sonia were adorable together), though I didn't particularly dislike him either. After Case 4 he became a cool/interesting character in my book though.
Nagito already had his "Hope born from Despair" methodology even without his HPA memories, so nah.
Mikan a notch below that in "ridiculously terrible childhood" tier. Same goes for Hiyoko.
What would they give him though?

Sonia never showed any interest into Souda, so no
The worst is the faggot who was telling everyone that he enjoyed the episode even without watching the summary of DR2. What the fuck does he think he's going to do when he watches Zetsubou-hen?
Now I don't even dislike Souda, but
To who? He actively antagonized Hajime when it'd make more sense to be distrustful of several other characters in the game over him. People say that "but he has trust issues!" which I'm aware of, but it also doesn't negate the bit where it'd make more sense for him to be distrustful over other characters instead of Hajime.
Plus Souda is a tryhard too. Part of his FTEs and everything.
Also his one-sided crush on Sonia was the worst thing about him, they should've focused less on that. The "cuck" thing is misleading because there's nothing there in the first place and it doesn't develop into anything either, all the interactions between the two consist of is Souda slobbering around Sonia and Sonia ignoring it.
Are you intentionally misinterpreting every single aspect of this one character or something?
how many episodes will this anime have? looks like 24 or more after such slow first ep
Do you not know what fucking dementia is? Jesus Christ.
Gameplay is decent for a 3rd person shooter, but bad as a dangan ronpa game (if that makes any sense). I think people are just overacting since it's an action adventure game rather then a vn. Story was fun, yuri-ish, and had a loli version Satan so it's all good in the end.
fuck, so we are getting dr1 all over again? shit will too fast
No because DR1 was an adaptation, the anime is an original.
The first episode of DR3 was a hell of a lot slower than any episode in DR1. Plus we don't even know if they'll be doing the trial thing, or even if they'll kill off as many people as DR1 did.
No trials, no investigations like DR1.
Only one traitor.
M8, pay attention to what he said, it's anime original. There's no trials, and no investigations. It's focusing on the psychological elements of there being one traitor among them all. Plus there's the other anime covering the prequel which is heavily interlinked with future.
>Nagito appears on that shit right?
He's just there to get creamed.
>Implying he didn't kill then for despair.
>thought that Nidai & Akane were having sex
>was jealous that he wasn't able to watch
>not that he wasn't the one fucking Akane, and not indifference towards it, but jealousy over not being able to watch it happen
Soda's gross, man.
Upon his introduction he seemed like he could've been pretty interesting. Seemed sorta shifty and cynical but smart enough. He just got worse and worse over time though. Him being a cuck is a meme, there's not enough there between him and Sonia even before Case 4 for a cuck (or anything else really) to even exist here. He's like the DR1 Toko of the game, potentially interesting but wasted due to doing almost nothing but orbiting around another character for unfunny comic relief for the rest of the game.
What if his hamsters die in Zetsubou-hen?
It shocks me how >50% of the DR2 screenshots I see floating around /a/ are from the dubbed version.
You can tell because NISA are terrible at coding, and the text breaks when listening to the english dub track; moving towards the top of the text box, leaving a bunch of blank space below- a clear sign of your forbidden shame.
Dub shitters have no shame, they even feel superior about it, the fucking plebs.
Oh no, please don't take my picture!
There are some legitimate glitches across voice tracks though.
If you play the Twilight Syndrome part with Jap voices, the text will be in Jap.
please tell me i am not the only one who freaked out when they saw this
Top image is playing with the JP audio.
Bottom image is from the dub.
Playing with the dub breaks the text alignment because NISA introduced a glitch when localising the game. If the text is higher than it should be it identifies someone as a dubshitter.
That reminds me of that glitch in the fun house that sends you into a wall and you can't get out. Apparently they couldn't fix it so they just put in a "do not enter" tape around it.
I thought it couldn't be foreshadowing, but then I realized that this is the end of Hope. I'm not prepared for the OG cast dying off
The best one will survive, don't despair anon
Man how much of an autistic shit do you have to be do notice this? Or even care. It's not like they rewrote the script between the different voice tracks, and the dub is of a much higher standard than most anime.
I prefer the JP voices myself but Jesus man. Calm down a bit.
Probably pulls a Cartman/Arya Stark and feeds people their loved ones.
Also, unf Kirigiri.
You're forgetting the part where he did that so he could take the "ultimate hope" title. He goes to extremes and aids despair in order to create a "bigger" hope. Going back to AE he's literally helping/rising the villains so that Komaru (the SHSL hope's little sister) can grow and defeat them. Him falling in with Junko makes sense.
the dub was good, but maybe because i played it first. replayed with jap and i couldn't stand monokuma, monomi, hajime, soda, fuyuhiko. trial games were also bs difficult with jap audio.
thats not how you spell retarded
>The dub is better because of how the class trial works
How? I've seen some people level this complaint against Rebbutal Battle specifically but even there it's not a problem for anyone who is able to read English at a normal pace (though maybe non-native speakers would struggle with it a little, I suppose)
She wears the mask because
it provides her with the relief from the pain, so taking it off would be extremely painful
Fucking great episode, though I really wonder if it'll be better as an anime instead of a game.
It really is a shame about the old Monokuma VA, when I first heard the laugh this episode I was a bit disgusted.
they actually cant die death from these screenshots, if only one of these will be accurate that means rest of them is too, successfully ruining next episodes, they will survive
That's worse than something like cancer because nothing can help an addled mind.
>never gave a damn about all this Hope or Despair nonsense that humanity destroyed the world fighting over, only now are other characters starting to follow this line of thought
>instead wants to live free and for the future
Yasuhiro is truly ahead of his time.
If Makoto dies then I can't see the SDR2 kids not showing up rehabilitated in the end. Someone has to take the reigns of hope. It surely won't be fucking Kyosuke.
This series always ends bittersweetly, but we won't see hope completely exterminated.
Can we talk about all of orgies Sonia demanded during her reign as the Despair Queen?
Monokuma's voice was Junko using a voice modifier in the games canon Different voice, even when speaking with voice modifiers could tie into the plot as a new mastermind Or not, it's always fucking Junko.
This sounds dumb but what if
Alter Ego Junko's AI was copied into NWP, and not transfered, so they could upload the AI into a robot Junko? I mean it may have been virtual but they did that with Nekomaru.
The gunplay is mediocre and during boss battles you have to fight the camera harder than the AI, but it's a Danganronpa game through and through; and therefore is definitely worth your time.
If there was a PC version that would be ideal, but there isn't so grab a Vita TV.
PROTIP: The Japanese dub doesn't work like it does with DR1/2. You can only select it when starting a new game, and the option is hidden in a menu brought up by an unprompted button-press.
I think you have to hit Triangle on the difficulty select screen. Google for confirmation, but it's bullshit and I had to play through the entire game with English audio because of it.
I think most people like it just fine, it's just always the question if it's worth playing or if you could get just as much out of it watching the cutscenes only.
As someone who doesn't own a Vita I enjoyed my self just fine watching it on YT.
Why does best dangan get no love?
She had a terrible deadbeat dad that let her down and caused her lots of pain, she just wants a strong, reliable husbando who'd make a good dad.
>Why does best dangan get no love?
What do you mean? She got to sleep with the MC.
Mikan's body is a deadly weapon.
She almost killed Hajime with it
Let's cheer up Nekomaru-kun by telling him how much we love him.
Getting crushed by a fat pig has to be the most embarrassing death possible.
She wasn't best, she was good though
When people say she was "useless", what they actually mean is that she didn't stand out compared to the rest of the colorful cast. She absolutely was not useless at all in the one case she was in, she was among the more prominently involved characters in the case even
I liked Naegi way better than Hajime, but the cast from DR2 was fucking perfect, or at least the females were
It wasn't until around Chapter 3 when Nekomaru stopped screaming "Shit" every three seconds that he became likeable, same with Gundham and his ancient witchcraft bullshit up until Chapter 4
>the option is hidden in a menu brought up by an unprompted button-press.
Bullshit indeed. I was up to Chapter 5 before I realized the Jap audio existed. After ragequitting due to a particularly stupid battle where the camera swung in its own direction when aiming, I wasn't about to restart the game just for a few bits of Japanese audio. If I hadn't invested so much time into this game, I probably would have opted to watch cutscenes on Youtube instead.
Nekomaru was my favorite character. I would like to do the Predator handshake with him but he'd probably crush my twig arm.

hwat. Why? Akane is your fembro. She's always got your back. Also she is hot. Probably the hottest of them all.
She's an idiot, doesn't really contribute much, almost gets someone killed TWICE, and is pretty stupid. She also almost killed someone because she's dumb and Chiaki had to slap some fucking sense into her.
Huge brown tits can't save her
Is there really a point in calling her an annoying little bitch if they wrote her exactly to be an annoying little bitch? You're not having some outsider opinion here, this is exactly what they wanted you to think.
>People who dislike characters because they have some negative points
Negative points can be interesting too, you know? Your favorite character doesn't have to be some perfect Mary coughnanamicoughkirigiricough Sue.
I wish she died instead of Ibuki.
Also forgot to mention that Fuyuhiko tried to talk to her about Nidai still being alive and her needing to appreciate that, and it just flew over her fucking head.
Also SOME negative points is an understatement. Her character is mostly negative points, with the only positive being, stonking huge brown tits. The rest of her character is being a hungry idiot.
I like her too because she'll let me grope her anytime I want.
>She also almost killed someone because she's dumb
You mean she almost killed the idiot that everyone wanted to kill because they never knew when he'd snap. Nothing wrong with that. Meanwhile, she was given the perfect reason to kill someone in chapter 4, and still didn't give in to killing someone, while everyone went straight into killing someone as soon as they hot hit in their weakness.
Your claim is wrong. She's an idiot, but she wouldn't kill anyone.
Well, if she was awake from that coma, I could see some nice things
>Nothing wrong with that.
Except, you know, she would also die then if she did kill him, and she was going to. Whether the bombs were real and they exploded, or they went to trial and she became blackened
(cue the noise Donald Sutherland makes at the end of Invasion of the Body Snatchers)
Why do people love throwing this around with so many characters nowadays? Akane's senstive sense of smell + her gut instinct kick in a number of times to help.
Akane is arguably bad because she has a bunch of chances to have an interesting character arc but fails to do so every single time.
She did, but had trouble expressing it.
Also for what it's worth, her FTE explains why she's so focused on food all the time.
1. Being a mix between Asa and Oog
2. Normal, hot personality
3. Big, strong and healthy when her family is starving
4. Fight Monokuma alone for no reason
5. Only relationship with Nidai, the one getting hate as well
6. Did nothing at all in SIX trials
7. Didn't pull "Why did you kill Nidai" thing hard enough
8. Nothing special comes from her, no noticeable memory with MC, no word to remember etc. Do you see any Oog pic here that have people quote other than you?
9. No negative point. Not enough improvement
10. Brown. The blackest in game

Well anyone who follows this logic should despise the whole cast (except Nanami), they are Million-class murderers after-all.
What I mean to say is that she wouldn't kill anyone out of a bad will. She can be stupid, but also probably one of the few that wouldn't get pushed into trying to screw everyone just to help herself.
This game still has a case to me where the male characters can be better overall, anyway. With Gundham coming through out of completely nowhere, where I thought he'd be the shittiest, and the game fixing the annoying faggot that Fuyuhiko was at the beginning during the 2nd trial.
I actually don't care that much, I'm just giving you shit.
They either use it to describe something they dislike or someone who at very least displays usual symptom or two.
Either way he's a fucking faggot cause she's likeable and doesn't show any signs of autism.

“You should really listen to what people say, you know! Otherwise you'll miss the important details! Like that, just now!”
“Well, I regret to inform that you are hereby branded "Hajime the unreliable." I expect you to work hard to shake that title off. Act more like a man!”

“Plus...it doesn't have to be today. There's...always tomorrow...”
“Nobody has the right to judge others for their crimes!”
Guys, don't say that it is just Ibuki. Tumblr has some fault there.
Can you guys explain something for me, I just finished the second game. How the fuck was the Nagito case not ruled a suicide? Going by previous cases, since he was obviously the mastermind behind his own murder, why wasn't he named the murderer? I was waiting for one of the characters to bring this up, but no one did. Am I just retarded? I'm pretty sure Chiaki should have just be declared an unknowning accomplice.Im pretty sure they mentioned thesethese were the rules during the case where Peko was executed.
