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?
