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
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.
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
Great action, but this part with Kar right here really ruined the seriousness & my experience while watching this episode. This isn’t the only one, there are other scenes like the one with the lewd woman, Arya. Forced & cringeworthy comedy.
If the manga is also like this, what was the author thinking?? Imagine if this situation happened in real life, you try making a joke with the killer while your life is at stake, you’re already dead fam.
And don’t forget…
…Shirou’s glorious quote:
Daryun owned a triple kill, damn! He activated his ultimate move lol.
One more to go. Let’s kick Narsus’s old buddy’s ass and end his charade. I wish this anime season would be at least 13 episodes.
Chapter VII: The Rainbow City
Of course, side stories count in too.
Actually, I’ve never thought of one of the characters from Ultra Despair Girls gonna show up there. If I recall correctly, the Servant a.k.a Nagito influenced Monaca to become the second coming of Junko during epilogue scene of the game. But in this case, it seems she’s still waiting for something to happen. At this rate, her role in this anime is kinda irrelevant but we’ll see. Also, this Gekkogahara confirmed a robot but the whereabouts of her human counterpart remains unknown. Maybe she’s kinda dead when the Remnants of Despair infiltrated Jabberwock Island and threatened her to implant the virus before Danganronpa 2 kicks off. After all, she was the creator of the Neo World Program.
Anyway, this episode gives you the hint of Chisa’s killer and maybe the rest of the victims. The reason of the hate between Seiko & Ruruka because of fuckin’ candy is indeed very silly to me.
FUTURE #5: Dreams of distant days
Ryota wants to save anime and only anime can give him hope. Yep, he’s a weeb alright. Also, Studio Trigger might hire this guy because of his wish. Or maybe Kodaka is trying to convey his feelings through this scene. Hideaki Anno says hi.
This episode is basically all about the real Ryota’s backstory. School entrance ceremony is just around the corner because of half-year timeskip and guess who’s gonna come soon…
Honestly, I would like to see those Danganronpa 1 guys for one last time in this arc. I hope it’ll gonna explain about the memories of school life that they had lost during D1.
DESPAIR #5: Beginning of the End
…should I call this Cringe Compilation August 2016? Oh well, the action is decent as always. Man, I couldn’t take Touko seriously anymore.
So this BB guys is apparently Izzy’s love interest. Okay, I can see why they wear the same coat.
Hermes’s gonna be pissed. So, fat saves someone’s life after all. Am I being lied to this?
2 episodes to go and why is this season has to be a short one? Maybe they restricted to the budget alone? Or perhaps scheduling issues?
Chapter VI: Calamity of Kings
Damn it Nagito! He ruined everything with his bullshit talent, again.
Yup, as I said last 2 weeks, Seiko & Ruruka’s history is explained in this episode. I can’t accept that silly mistake was the cause of their current relationship in Future Arc. Like, damn.
#4: The Melancholy, Surprise, and Disappearance of Nagito Komaeda
