A group of 15 elite high school students are gathered at a very special, high class high school. To graduate from this high school essentially means you'll succeed in life, but graduating is very difficult. The school is presided over by a bear called Monokuma, and he explains to them that their graduation hinges around committing a murder. The only way to graduate is to kill one of your classmates and get away with it. If the other classmates discover the identity of the killer, the killer is the only one executed. However, if they fail to catch the killer, only the killer graduates and the others are annihilated. Which of the 15 will survive the bloodbath to come? Written by Anonymous

Crazy Credits

In the scrolling text of the end credits, there are 8-bit avatars of each of the 15 students. As the show progresses, anyone who has ended up dead up to the end of that episode will have a red X over their avatar, and the character will show up alongside Naegi in the photo backdrop behind the credits.

I absolutely love the teddy bear Monokuma, he's like my spirit animal with the way he comes out with stuff and that's always trolling to get on everyones nerves. As dark I am, I think he is just totally cute! I was quite surprised that most of the reviews here didn't like this first adaption of Danganronpa at all! I find it enjoyable and that each character had their own unique personalities. The psychological vibe on this would really dive you into a world of thriller and mystery like I find that entertaining lol! Seriously though I thought this first adaption was class and I only found out about this anime series not too long ago.

I am really glad I got the chance to watch this anime, it was terrifyingly good. Also note for the parents, do not show this to kids, there so much messed up stuff on it that it is quite scary! In my opinion, I give this anime a 8/10 for its thrilling ride of monopoly!!!!
