mt-inc-dgrp3da-10-a03a1e7b-mkv_snapshot_08-31_2016-09-18_23-02-58DESPAIR #10: Smile at Despair in the Name of Hope

Those episodes were depressing as fuck. Just be prepared though. Gonna watch Future Arc Ep 11 soon.

Unless Kodaka makes a 180 degree twist, it’s almost confirmed that the traitor of the Future Arc incident might be Yukizome. I wonder if Hiro & Byakuya are doing just fine after the HQ building collapsed.

mt-inc-tabtat-11-7de02468-mkv_snapshot_05-06_2016-09-18_23-11-23Fighting while talking too much at the same time? Wow, seems they’re too desperate to finish this anime.

#11: In the Palm of the Hand

Anyway, I apologize for posting this pretty late. Intern jobs hold me back.

Kinda Late Anime Releases (Sept 13)

Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak Academy 「ダンガンロンパ3 -The End of 希望ケ峰学園 」 #9

mt-inc-dgrp3da-09-7e148b5f-mkv_snapshot_14-43_2016-09-13_01-35-11 Future #9: You are my reason to Die
Despair #9: Chisa Yukizome Doesn’t Smile

Last week’s episodes were driving me real crazy. Holy shit, things get even darker upon nearing the end of this anime. I’m not ready for despair yet lol.

mt-inc-tabtat-10-a31d40d3-mkv_snapshot_13-33_2016-09-13_01-21-19#9: The Past
#10: Letter of Challenge

At this rate, the production team is pretty much gave up & don’t give a shit about this adaptation anymore. Also, I dunno whether I should laugh or not during the comedy parts.

Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak Academy 「ダンガンロンパ3 -The End of 希望ケ峰学園 」 #8

Future Arc

[MT-INC] DGRP3FA - 08 [EC4268C7].mkv_snapshot_09.03_[2016.09.01_21.27.34]I just noticed that the episode title is based on the nursery song during mid 18th century. Today, it felt kinda weird that those kids sang out the word “Cock” really loud lol.

Anyway, Kyoko’s in beast mode right now.

#8: Who Killed Cock Robin

Despair Arc

mt-inc-dgrp3da-08-1e846bf5-mkv_snapshot_18-22_2016-09-06_01-27-20Man, I had a feeling Chiaki might die in the next episode. Please, I hope not…

#8: The Worst Reunion by Chance

Future Arc Ep 9 soon.

Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak Academy 「ダンガンロンパ3 -The End of 希望ケ峰学園 」 Despair Arc #7 -“Please Give Me Wings”-

[MT-INC] DGRP3DA - 07 [33FBC21B].mkv_snapshot_19.52_[2016.08.29_02.59.49]The Tragedy of Hope’s Peak Academy. This is the most gruesome episode to date. Holy damn, that was terrifying to watch. Yeah, there are some black bars here and there, but if you’re too bothered by them, I guess just wait for home release then. I’m still good tho.

Now I kinda understand about how Mikan terribly loved Junko so much as shown in Danganronpa 2. That certain ‘technique’ might made her like that. I also had a bad feeling it might being utilized to make those Reserve students to commit suicide soon.

Reading Danganronpa/Zero light novel isn’t necessary but it’s a plus if you read it, since some characters from the novel did appear in this episode, including the sole survivor of Junko’s killing massacre. Next episode might cover the story of Ryoko & Yasuke, the main characters from the novel, but I think it will be shown in a different point of view.

I love how Danganronpa 3 not only ties everything with the games, but also with different media that are related to the main story. The details they putting in are incredible.

#7: The Biggest, Most Atrocious Incident in Hope’s Peak High School’s History

Taboo Tattoo 「タブー・タトゥー 」 Ep 8 -Mistakable Action-

[MT-INC] TabTat - 08 [869C8AD2].mkv_snapshot_06.43_[2016.08.25_21.04.06]Why Touko so goddamn silly? Oh well, I’ve already see that coming.

Wow, I think the author of the series really wanted to make Seigi & Izzy shipping to happen. Sheesh.

Still, I’m not dropping this series because I wanted to criticize this anime so hard. But hey, maybe something in the end will redeem the mistakes made throughout the series.

#8: Creator

Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak Academy 「ダンガンロンパ3 -The End of 希望ケ峰学園 」 Future Arc #7 -Despair in Towa City-

[MT-INC] DGRP3FA - 07 [15DC4034].mkv_snapshot_00.53_[2016.08.25_20.56.32]Oh my gosh, Monaca is literally a fucking Hitler now. I mean, just look at the swastikas in her eyes.

It’s really nice to see this change of pace from intense yet despair inducing war in Future Foundation HQ to desolated place in Towa City. Oh boy, this will be yet…  another episode

Aaaaanywayyy, this episode is definitely taking place after the epilogue of Ultra Despair Girls game. Those Warriors of Hope kids still alive and kicking thanks to the events from that game. Glad we’re able to see some of those Komaru & Toko action. Oops, not to mention Toko’s alter ego, Genocide Jack. (intentional nod to Alter Ego, Chihiro’s AI program).

Also, I found it really amusing that the episode title is given after the English official localization title for Danganronpa Another Episode game, as opposed to literal translation Absolute Despair Girls from Zettai Zetsubou Shoujo (絶対絶望少女). Maybe Kodaka’s decision to give a nod to Western fans perhaps?

FUTURE #7: Ultra Despair Girls

Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak Academy 「ダンガンロンパ3 -The End of 希望ケ峰学園 」 #6

Future Arc

[MT-INC] DGRP3FA - 06 [9E11FC0A].mkv_snapshot_04.45_[2016.08.18_12.22.47]It’s fanservice time for Danganronpa lovers. If you played all the games, you’ll gonna enjoy this episode, including myself. That was freaking awesome! Can’t wait for Future’s new episode tonight!

So many things happened in one episode. I still can’t believe Monaca is the mastermind though. But hey, maybe she uses Munakata to achieve her agenda.

FUTURE #6: No man is an island

Despair Arc

[MT-INC] DGRP3DA - 06 [617B3792].mkv_snapshot_13.45_[2016.08.21_01.23.27]Izuru now in the house! I feel pity for Chiaki because Hajime isn’t going to meet her anymore. Well, I can’t deny the fact that Junko was the one who triggered The Tragedy in Hope’s Peak but still, let’s point our fingers to the one and only asshole who started it all since Twilight Syndrome incident.

#BlameSakakura

Anyway, I like some noticable changes in the opening credits, signifying the transition from peaceful to despair-inducing school life. I still couldn’t get why Chiaki began to smile at the end of the OP. Is she supposed to be a savior of hope or something?

DESPAIR #6: A Despairfully Fateful Encounter
