The conclusion of the mystery is close at hand
I'm honestly expecting some completely retarded left field twist next week.
I wonder how it'll take for Hopeman to come in
If someone told you that V3 will actually be connected to original story disregarding Kodaka's words and by that I mean new cast are previous characters kids, Junko implied and so on, how would you react? Would you buy it or play pirated version at all?
Only asking because you people really like to doubt poor hack
Will Mirai 12 at long last fulfill the
Asahina's SHSL Swimmer talent promised us?
THERE WAS NO ONE WHO COULD EVEN REMOTELY CONTROL OUR HERO JUZO

>Had a misunderstanding with the Gozuboys

All your waifus are dead and shall stay dead.
In the words of a certain sad monk, let it go and move on.
Yeah, that's just about the only thing that would get me to play the game at all if anything. Kodaka's plot writing is terrible and I'm not very interested in the weak mysteries that he often comes up with, but the characterization in the previous games was considerably more acceptable. Making the new characters be related to many of the old good ones would be nothing but a good move in my eyes, since, given the terrible new environment and themes, I really don't see myself caring about the characters at all otherwise.
Here you go, anon friend.
- Question: What kind of clothes do you wear to bed during summer? And are there a lot of times where it gets too hot to sleep and you wonder how you can endure it? (might not be the exact translation but the idea is here)
- Sakakura: After a workout and a shower I just fall asleep without changing so I usually go to bed in my trunks or something like that. Most of the time I go to sleep just when I’m tired so waking up from a troubled sleep never happened to me. A proper amount of exercise brings a peaceful slumber. …Is there anything fun in asking something like that?
- Question: Where do you like to go out during a hot summer? For dates, are there any places you like to go to?
- Munakata: A calm summer resort where you can relax would be good. There aren’t any places I’d particularly like to go to in my case, but at least I’d like to make my partner feel at ease. If there are other places where they’d want to go then I would follow them. If we could spend a peaceful moment together without any accident, that would be enough for me.
Reminder that Juzo is the purest.
Hey anon, check this out!
Remember how we saw that Izuru was able to conceal his presence for the entirety of the first killing game until the very last minute, using the SHSL Spy talent? Nobody there saw him until he decided to show himself. Junko brought him there in the first place in order to convince him of the unpredictability of despair.
Wouldn't it be hilarious if somebody else like him - say, a Izuru 2.0 - was doing the exact same thing in the Final Killing Game? Just watching everybody act like a moron, slaughtering one another with impunity, with anybody unwilling to do that either killed via NG codes or by suicide via brainwashing, and doing nothing to stop it themselves even when they have all the power in the world? Could it be that the aim of the mastermind, whoever it was, was to prove a point to Izuru 2.0?
Actually Naegi cleared both Munakata's and Sakakura's FTE, he's still pretty good at it.
I can't wait to see the aftermath of Juzo beaten down and embarrassed and lie to Munakata's face!
I can't wait to see how ashamed he is... selling out the world just because he's ashamed of being in love with his best friend!
And this will be the last time we see him, too...
The despair... it's wonderful...
There was nobody watching. Junko said "Bye bye, class rep", Class 77 filed out, the monitors showed nothing... then, and only then, did somebody reactivate the camera and focus on her.
Who was it?
Why do it?
>V3 comes out
>Post game is a full visual novel with a route for every character instead of a shitty resource management game
>Set in an alternate universe where Junko was thrown in the trash as soon as she was pulled out of her mother's growler
Show me your HOPE /a/! you're not filthy despairs, right?
I'm sad the new characters are gonna be a bunch of teens.
I liked Mirai so much more because everyone was more mature and serious, even if they were still all fucking stupid.
Well that didn't take long for Hopeman to get here.
Time for some hopeman.
1 and I HOPE
2 and I HOPE
3 and I HOPE
4 and I HOPE
5 and I HOPE
6 and I HOPE
7 and I HOPE
8 and I HOPE
0 or 9 and I DESPAIR
Yeah, the average age being considerably higher is what got me back into the series, since I felt like Kodaka could make them considerably more interesting. Too bad that's not how it turned out at all.
THE ABSOLUTE FUCKING MADMAN! HE ACTUALLY HOPES!
You would do well to see a therapist, Komaeda-kun.
Reporting in, brother!
I am still hoping for a Ryouko cameo!
If not, I wonder if they will show us how exactly the mind hacking broadcasting escalated.
They just had to give it away. Our boy will be back one last time, just to rub the despair in.
>that was her way of teaching sex ed
it's all coming together
Miaya and Gozu could've been great too. Ultimately these minor impressions that we got are just that though - minor. If this had been a full-blown game like the previous entries, or even a VN, they could've all gotten so much more characterization and development.
Plus, it doesn't make up for how stupid they all were at times.
Friendly Reminder that you can't trust anything that is said on Ogata's Radio Show.
Case in point, they said Juzo died when in reality he lived on to save the day!
>implying Munakata didn't murder Juzo
>even if they were still all fucking stupid.
Honestly I would only say that Ruruka was fucking stupid due to her insane trust issues. At least with Munakata he went off the loop because his waifu had died. If you rewatch Future episode 1 before killing game started, Munakata isn't actually that bad.
Ah...yes...this is exactly the kind of hope that can beat even the biggest despair...such hopeful individuals...
Sorry Gekohara but you're fucking dead!
>Go into DR2 expecting to not like any of the females
>end up liking Mahiru a lot
>Go into DR3 expecting to not like any of the females
>end up liking Seiko a lot
When will this despair train end
Yeah but kirigiri being dead is more concrete just cause shes been a corpse for 2 whole episodes now. That and the survivor count just dashes my hopes.
>muh cure w
> muh ed lyrics
To be fair, he was only trying to get in for Running because Aoi was already the SHSL Swimmer. His first love was swimming.
Of course, there are multiple SHSL Lucky Students, so I'm not really sure what the rules on that are.
He wanted to hear out Naegi, he told Sakakura to quit beating him, he told Chisa to fix him up. He even wondered if he was wrong.
After Chisa died, that's when he started to turn mad.
>4 people killed themselves, Chisa, Gozu, Seiko & Ruruka.
>2 people were killed by Ruruka, Fedora & Izayoi by activating NG codes.
>2 people were killed by Munakata. Juzo & Tengen, with his blade of hope.
>1 person was killed by Monaka using her bot to twist Miaya's head.
>such hopeful individuals...
That only means you missed your one and only chance at fixing your crippling loneliness issues, Komaeda-kun. And now you're in a coma too.
Reminder what happened in the last episode of Despair arc. This is where we'll pick up tommorow.
The anime will have a happy ending. Despair is just a stepping stone for hope after all.
I like Munakata, even if he did ruin everything during the game.
Its pretty much confirmed that Weedman is going to survive and reproduce
Juzoisn't dead yet friend, not until last minute of the last episode!
But you see Gekohara-san, i high hopes that my talent will help me overcome my situation, however no amount of hope can help you out, since you happen to be dead!
It's a self-contained epilogue story to Junko essentially destroying HPA and needing to hide out for a while, maybe Matsuda being involved in earlier events would've been interesting but otherwise there's no reason for anything from DR0 to get any focus at all.
But your talent is luck, not self-resurrection, Komaeda-kun. You're not Junko.
Seeing my mother and student bicker fills me with despair
"Love Love" instead
>Juzo comes back for one last hoorah
>Bacon bitch is dead as fuck
This girl deserved a long beach holiday and some direct affection from her manlet, not a rigged NG code and a killing game.
>Making the least likable character at the start of DR3 to the most likable character at the end of DR3.
How is this possible?
To elaborate on my point a bit- there's a scene more or less like this in every episode of Future. Multiple, in most cases, though the Komaru episode only managed to squeeze in one at the end.
Well, maybe not as flagrant as this one in particular.
Granted, they were travelling together so it's not surprising they'd both be in many of the same shots, but in many cases there were other ways to frame the scene without putting both of them in the shot in the way they did.
Reminder that she will be best girl.
Pic related. She is doing a martial arts pose since she doesn't have a useless talent.
I'm sorry /a/, but corrupt Chisa makes my dick so hard.
Please forgive me.
All the young and upcoming talent that would've become successful had he not buried them just to hold on to his championship belt and be the top dog of his wrestling company
I want to believe, my friend. But after last episode I feel like he had the closure we all awaited.
But as usual, we'll stay strong and if he rises again, a third time to grace us with his presence, then I'll be ever so happy and I hope the fellow Juzoboys share that sentiment, my friend!
She is but she'll end up dying in the 3rd Chapter. I'm calling it now.
She has the worst design of them all. I bet her character is even worse.
Does that mean you're literally your own mother, Usami-chan?
Who's the father? I'm going after him right now.
I'm glad the writers don't get as autistic about talents as you guys do to be honest. If you guys had your way the characters would be talking about their talent in every sentence.
>there will never be a debate as to who the heroine will be except by the weirdos that are determined to make Kaede a lesbian.
>the only debates will be fujos trying to predict who the husbando is
It's an abstract kind of hell.
>Ogata says that there’s still a bit left to go, and to look forward to it. After all, Zetsubou-hen is this Thursday. Nakahara then says “Let’s despair!” and Ogata says that she can’t say what, but in Zetsubou-hen 11, something to do with Yukizome shocked her. Nakahara is intrigued and says she’ll ask Ogata for more details after the broadcast, but Ogata says she’ll know it when she sees it and refuses to say if it’s in the first or second half
Himself. He just wanted to put on a show, since he knows that Naegi's too boring to do that himself.
She's ugly, her sense of fashion is awful and smug girls are always shit. I want a more reasonable looking&acting girl that doesn't make you want to think with your dick every time.
Anon, this is easily the most retarded theory yet and that's a fucking accomplishment. They're always together due to his NG code, they're friends, they're DR1 survivors and they stand next to each other a lot. No fucking shit they're framed together a lot.
>Liking the Chisa who'd scream messed up stuff like "murder" while she was getting plowed
No, not in crazy like that
Romance is almost never the main focus in DR anyway, and when it is it always ends badly for everyone involved. You guys care more about this sorta shit than Kodaka himself does.
Still, a 45 second cutscene is the most swimming an Asahina has ever been shown doing. You gotta give him props for that.
Couldn't ask for a better father. Even if he wears a dress, he's a real man where it matters
Why are you apologising?
>DR was all an illusion created by Aizen's Bankai.
She's Ultimate Aikido, so she's the best DR character by default.
Chihiro was shit at everything aside from computer programming though. Granted that's a pretty great thing to be good at, doesn't make up for being a complete dumbass in every other regard though.
Why did Sato have to be such a shitty reserve course bitch?
He'd be useful if there was any shit for him to make.
Too bad his personality is worthless. Good when they get out of the game, though.
I am actually happy she can't be a love interest.
See how that turned out for naegi/munakata/hajime
>trying to predict who is going to be the heroine's husbando
>his person of importqnce was going to be his mom, who Chiali was based off of
>instead they put in his dad
>a milf Chiaki might very well still be alive somewhere out there
DR1 Asahina would have never done any of this shit. NEVER. She'd be cowering in a corner and freaking the fuck out. Clearly there's something more important to her now.
Because she's so spontaneous and perky. There's never a dull moment with her around.
>Stop beating her Hajime! She's dead already!
He was okay. He's useful when he gets the chance to, a lot of the time he is stirring up shit but he says the odd inciteful thing here and there.
She acts like that towards Sakura and at points even Toko during DR1. She's not acting that differently, she's just getting more screentime in DR3.
So Kaede never said she was the "protagonist" per se, she said she was the "heroine" alongside this cover we can all figure out that our robot friend will be the main focus, with Kaede having a brutal but well deserved first death.
Yeah. She grew the fuck up. Especially after Sakura's will.
She's pretty much carrying on where Sakura left off. Protecting what is precious to her.
This shows what effect Sakura has even after her death.
Sakura got them united. The survivors are a tight union now who all protect each other when needed instead of going at each other.
That goes double for Asahina who tried to get them all killed and who might be the heart of the group now.
Fujisaki-san was a good man, Usami-chan, but he cannot be the father. AI Nanami-san is his child, but she is not my own.
This guy, witch loli, and ballcap are going to be the best new characters.
No. I'm talented. I belong at Hope's Peak. I came here to be proud of myself. They told me they could make me extremely talented. You know what? Fuck you. I'm doing it. I'll do it for her. I'll be someone she'll be proud to be with. A talented person. Talent. Hope's Peak. Hope's Talent. Peak Talent. Hope's Talent Peak.
I don't think you know what a fujo is anon
They don't need to go out of their way to pander to shipperfags, they just spin every remotely positive interaction between any two characters into a ship anyway.
Is the only likely scenario, friends. They have too many similarities and Kodaka will try to play on your expectation from DR2 to make you believe that they are just making them similar as coincidence
Well yeah, she's not who she was at 16 anymore and has been working at the FF for probably two years now. She's actually useful and cool now. I don't see how that translates into riding Naegi.
The other prominent person on the cover is cap-kun, while RoboNaegi is just as small as the other unimportant characters.
Do you think Chiaki would resist if Chisa wanted to personally teach her how two girls can have sex?
Scarf boy is cute too. Probably going to be a murderer.
Seiko confirmed best girl of DR 3
Don't get me wrong brother, but his closure was so incredibly great and left such a strong feeling that him coming back would feel somewhat cheap, or just bad. So I hope everything will stay this way.
It is true that I would love to see more more of our boy but I just wouldn't change the final outcome for nothing!
If not for Juzo, Gozu would most likely be my favorite character, brother!
>I don't see how that translates into riding Naegi.
How does it not?
She's wanted it since their HPA days, she just sidelined it since she didn't want to fuck things up with him and Kirigiri. She likes them too much to try horning in and possibly ruining everything with her spaghetti.
The way is clear now, though. I mean, nothing is going to happen in the series. Too soon. But if there's any kind of long term epilogue Naegi sure as shit isn't going to be wanking it alone in a one room apartment.
>They have too many similarities
We know next to nothing about any of the cast. All you can go off of is visual design, in a series that has massive sameface and design similarity issues in that regard.
Could they be descendants of the DR1&2 cast? Yeah, they could. It is by no means an especially likely scenario though.
I fucking hate this image so much.
Look at Chiaki, she is so naive and trusting of that cunt. That smile is so sincerely happy.
I want to cry because I will never be able to protect that smile
That's weird. I thought best girls get better with more screentime, not worse.
>Best husbando was just a stepping stone for hope
He didn't deserve to die like that
Why does Junko's crown change during her execution?
I mean, if she wanted to bring in that rabbit accessory that she used to wear, sure. But why attach it to her crown? On the end of a fucking spring? And why wasn't it there all along? It only showed up right before she was squashed.
I like this one. I'm a little worried about him being missing in the trial footage we've got, but I'm going to assume they intentionally showed that.
Does anyone here who tries to mention DR1 to backup their point ever actually happen to remember DR1 well? Aoi was not a coward at all, on the contrary she rushed into conflict recklessly at times and sticks her neck out for others at several points in the game.
Pretty much all of the DR1 survivors are a little more firendly with each other (you see more of it with Aoi towards Kyoko than you do Aoi towards Makoto, and you even see a little of it with Byakuya towards Yasuhiro too), but that's it. Otherwise they're pretty much the same charactesr as they were before.
Fact 1: Junko first found Imouto's body and nobody feel it was suspicions or anything to have Super Gal in reserve course school.
Conclusion: Junko was a normal reserve course student until killing happened.
Fact 2: Higher-ups cover up everything and later Junko was appointed by the same higher-ups as a Super Gal into main Hope's school.
Conclusion: Junko was artificially created the same way as Kamukura by Kamukura Project using brainwashing technique or something. Knowing her later personality and that Imouto wanted to become SHSL, it's easy to assume that they both undergo this procedure and Jukno killed Imouto or they both try to kill each other after becoming Super Despairs.
Fact 3: Sato seen at least part of it happening, didn't tell anything to police, and later was killed by someone who found out that she seen it, feeling it could be a thread to the whole project.
Conclusion: Sato was seen at least part of what happened, and seen that she couldn't go to police with it because people who part of it were Most Important People in Hope's School. Tengan was heavily involved into Kamukura Project, as he said in Future Arc, and was sure that he did everything right or at least not in vain, so it's safe to assume that he was on scene, and later he or someone send by him killed Sato after they somehow found out that she seen everything/something.
Hes just going to die in some shitty predictable case about twins. Probably chapter 2
oops meant for >>147536489
just imagining those back muscle, hnnnng
I swear I remember AI Chiaki and Usami calling Alter Ego their brother or Chihiro their father
He's responsible for:
>New World Program
>AE saving Makato in chp 5 after Kyoko betrayal
Without Makato class 78 is screwed and that in turn will cancel any hope of lass 77 survival. Izuru might've gotten away but I doubt he'd try much for the other RoD
Im crying over Weedman day after day
I'm not saying Chihiro was useless. I'm saying that he was a dumbfuck in every regard barring Computer Program, which I do note is a very useful thing to specialize in. Showed no sign of general intelligence beyond his specialized field in any other interaction with him. He's "book smart".
Of course not. But if the mushrooms all changed color and shape right before she 'died' I'd be suspicious as fuck. She wore a crown several times throughout that trial. But it was a different damn crown.
Reminder to all Chiakifriends, Kirigiribros, Chisapals, and Juzoboys that this will all have a happy ending!
For the fact that he created AI Chiaki makes him one of my favorite characters.
I think you're jumping on something that was already deconfirmed years ago. Yes, they originally considered having Junko turn out to be alive, but they decided that she died instead for SDR2.
That's kind of the point with almost all of the students. They're only really good at what they specialize in. They suck in pretty much every other regard, especially social interaction for a majority of them. It shows how stupid hpa's philosophy was.
FUCK YOU! JUNKO A SHIT! I HATE HER! DESPAIR IS THE WORST THING EVER!
>Mukuro was identical to Junko
Old interviews. Look, you can believe me or not, but I'm merely pointing out that you shouldn't base theories off of Junko herself. For one, because she's demonstrably too weak powerlevel-wise to stand on her own.
>Caring about banter
I came to see pastel-colored bodies splatter for arbitrary reasons, so these hardened criminals better come up with some creative murders.
Watch one of the trials be a group of them gathering together to shank a guy to death, then watching as the one who dealt the killing blow get executed while Kaede gets wary of the other participants
Why couldn't Chiaki be more like ChiakAI?
It would have been nice to see her falling asleep or being generally dozy in the anime. I still felt it hard when she died but I would have been inconsolable if her characterization was a bit stronger and more like SDR 2.
>She'll never feed on your despair as she destroys an 80,000-piece jigsaw puzzle that took you hours to solve
>tfw Kodaka didn't give Weedman a single moment of development and basically treated him as a joke and red herring participant
Because they're two different characters with different mannerisms and only some broad similarities such as appearance and a belief in the possibility of a miracle.
If anything I feel the opposite. AI Chiaki was great, but the real Chiaki being so significantly different and especially a lot weaker humanized her massively. Even with the generally bad characterization of DR3, I feel like there are enough things that can be implied or inferred from the show to make up a good character, which is way more than can be said of most others.
She even said it herself!
I bet Jin is laughing at her dumb ass in the afterlife.
>30% chance of being right
>30% of 16 is 4.8
>Weedman, Togami, Asahina, and Naegi makes 4
>Persona makes 0.8, due to missing an eye
Hopeman if you truly despise Despair so much, then for the sake of a greater and brighter hope kill yourself.
AI Chiaki was a better character, she was pure and more interesting as an artificial intelligence being curious of human interactions. Human Chiaki was just a generic teenage girl.
Yeah, I'll say that. Real Chiaki is honestly one of my favorite DR3 characters because they did manage to do quite a bit with her character despite her having to be a deuteragonist and then tritagonist to Chisa and Junko.
In a series where seemingly everyone has to have some sort of weird quirk, Chiaki being a simple, frail girl is a welcome sight. Not to say that she's a better character, but it's easy to find that appealing if you eventually get bored of all the gimmicks that Kodaka tries to push onto his teenager characters, especially the girls.
I dug around and there were a few interviews from last year that said, basically, that it was a matter open to interpretation. He said that he didn't feel like Junko had to be a villain who had to survive to be significant in the series, but also acknowledged the western trope of every series having at least one basically unkillable villain that forms the counterpoint to the hero.
Basically- I ain't tellin.
>Schreier: Would you ever make a Danganronpa game with a female main character?
>Kazutaka: Honestly, I don't really think much of the gender of the character when I'm making the main characters.
She's gotta fill that hole in her
Pic related: Why didn't Nagito go for free healthcare for life?
yeah, he was soo strong. Willing to expose his secret to the world, even resisted Junko's brain wipe. Mentioning he thought he'd seen them all before, didn't have any brazing speeches or outward confidnce but damn the little dude worked hard at his own. Such a shame his bro snapped and killed him
Whether people hate Junko or like her she's definitely one of the most memorable villains of all time.
I stand by the observation that Junko's threat level has downgraded too dramatically from the first game (right down to being stomped and turned into a masochist thanks to Izuru) to let her be a credible antagonist of Mirai, assuming that she simply survived. I'm not saying to count her out just yet, but if she does show up, I would assume bodyjacking.
How would you punish Mikan for all of the dumb shit she's done which has brought ruin upon everybody we know and love?
At the edge of the academy I lived in the wild
From birch I have forged my fists
I've carved out revenge in my heart
On despair who kidnapped you
I've done some bodybuilding
You can call me trv
I covered my muscles in oil
They shine like dog's balls
Great warrior - fire and steel
Great warrior - flame and embers
Great warrior - stands in blood
Great warrior - kills despairs like evil
Hope and love lead me
I never take a step back backwards
Virgins stroke my body
When I pull my chair from the sheath
I've fought Junko before
The hope has been giving me strength
When I lost my ear in a fight
Two other grew in its place
Great warrior - fire and steel
Great warrior - flame and embers
Great warrior - stands in blood
Great warrior - kills despairs like evil
Great warrior - fire and steel
Great warrior - flame and embers
Great warrior - stands in blood
Great warrior - kills despairs like evil
Even Delta is better. Life is simply unfair don't you think?
That's easy anon. Marry her, fuck her, have kids with her, and die old, but also fuck her a lot. That seems like a good punishment
There's nothing wrong with continuing to hope, right?
Don't fall for the /u/ meme. Sato's love was entirely one-sided like Juzo's.
