If you, as me like of the genre presented in movies like Battle Royale and the Cube you will not regret to see this anime!

Analysis

Well, I like review the opening from the animes, they are always a big factor for me, I mean with a good op. I probably will watch the anime even if the plot is bad. Except in Danganropa case, I was captive by the story, the characters, the thrill of the murderings and the trials, that compensate the fact they only launch a stable opening after 5 or 6 episodes. I Despair a little until they have the opening stabilized.

This anime to me, provokes a little of reverse feeling, because the ending song for me was one of the bests ever, I generally don’t hear the anime endings after ep.1, but this ending have receive the right to be presented in video, in this review!


(Danganronpa - ending)

To end the soundtrack analysis, I need to refer that the opening with the Monobearsong was pretty low and a cheap try to collect dividends of the Monobear voice be also the Doraemon voice!


" The evil side of Doraemon"



PuPuPu, well, finally a show I can enjoy, lots of characters, lots of side story, friendship, conspiracy and backstabbing this anime has it all!

Week after week, I wanted to watch the next show, the next murder the thrill to guess (and generally to fail :P), the next to die, the next trial, to think the evidences and the super duper executions animations in a awesome and different style!

Danganropa, obviously could it be a little better, they have a full set of rules, that could have presented in a Death Note style! And with a little work the trial's animations sequences could be improved.

Major Spoiler Warning! 
Don't read bellow if you didn't the full Danganronpa season!!!


This anime ended with a promise of something more, sincerely I would prefered, an couple of more episodes.

I don’t think, that are enough material for a second season, but I think, we could wait probability for an OVA.

Why are you reading this? Go watch Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc.
