Now…......I could spend this whole post just fanboying and typing random words and putting reaction gifs everywhere(I hate people who do that but in this situation I think its totally ok!) but first I will explain what Dangan Ronpa is for those not in the know.........Dangan Ronpa is a game, japanese-only, for the PSP and its the best thing ever!!!! And yes I know its a bit early to create a thread about this, but hey I'm hyped!!!
Now you might be asking "I don't think you speak japanese so how do you know about this game and its quality?"......well a kind soul over on the somethingawful forums last year started a big project where he would do a Let's Play(if you don't know what that is just google it) on the game and translating the whole thing. Thanks to the rich characters and plot it became one of the most famous Let's Plays on the site and became sort of a big thing on the Internet.(there is a even a thread here to discuss the LP!).
Well I don't want to ramble toooo much so here is the main plot:
**"Special high school students throughout Japan are transferred to Hope's Academy because they excel above all other students in a certain way. The protagonist,Makoto Naegi (excels in Luck) arrives on the first day of class only to fall unconscious after he steps through the gates. When he wakes up, he meets up with 14 other students who went through the same experience, and they find that all possible exits have been sealed shut.
The 15 are then informed by Monobear, a black and white robot bear who appears to be behind the whole affair, that they are playing a game and the only way for them to leave the school is to "graduate". To do so, they must kill another student and get away with it. A trial will be held after a corpse is found, and if the culprit is found guilty, they will be executed and the game will continue. If they are found innocent, they will graduate and be able to leave, while the rest of the cast gets executed in their place…"**
So yes it is the best stuff!
Oh and here is some warnings to help those that decide to wait for the anime or go read the LP thanks to this thread:
**1º-DON'T SPOIL YOURSELF, TRUST ME YOU WILL REGRET IT!
2º-DON'T GO SEARCH THE WEB FOR INFO ON THIS SERIES SINCE ITS FULL OF SPOILERS OF THIS GAME AND ITS SEQUEL, YES EVEN IMAGES ARE FULL OF SPOILERS SO DON'T GO USE GOOGLE IMAGES EITHER!
3º-ALSO** DON'T TALK ABOUT SPOILERS IN THIS THREAD IF YOU CAN!!(if you really need too, use spoiler tags and a warning about the type of spoiler. ex: Chapter/murder 1 spoilers then insert spoiler tag, but try to avoid it so this doesn't become Spoiler Tagville if you can!) There is a thread in the game's section for that if you decide to read the LP so do that there, but vaque stuff like "How I can't wait to see the end of this episode animated" or "This guy is my favorite character can't wait to see his scenes animated!" are fine.
