It had to look like a real killing game caused by despair. Mitarai wasn't supposed to be there, he was supposed to be spurned to action by believing Tengan had become a despair and killed everyone.

Oliver Bell
Oliver Bell

Tengan was a nice old man who believed in people, the war and how FF was like broke him so he gave up on people.Chisa gave him the tools necessary to further his ambitions (the videos and the knowledge about Mitarai)

Chisa worked on the shadows and made Munakata more ruthless which is something that made him side against Tengan more neutral views more and more

It reached a point in which Tengan himself was tired and made the killing game so Mitarai could end everything with his hope anime

Basically, what Junko said is true, Chisa destroyed the FF from the shadows

Ryan Bell

Tengan is fucking retarded, just like all hopefags.

Kirigirifags B T F O, she's dead and she's going to stay dead. They don't have the airtime for her to save the day in any sense that Izuru couldn't do.

Also, Hagakure had to have counted, unless they're going to somehow do the confrontation with Mitarai, Izuru finally getting off the boat at roughly the time as Guts, the epilogue, AND reveal the 16th participant / motives / conflict, all in a mere 22 minutes.

Disappointing as heck, since we have the shittiest final boss imaginable and Kirigiri went out unceremoniously looking like a total retard. No Junko even, despite all that Junko foreshadowing ('this is the conclusion to your story and mine', the first episode's name (third time's the charm), the second missing JunkoAI, etc.)

It's not like Mitarai SPECIFICALLY had to upload it.

Adrian Harris
Adrian Harris

I get why he wanted to kill a bunch of people because Mitarai was probably a massive bitch about not using the hope video and dead people would drill into his brain how bad despair is. But yeah, there's so many other ways he could've done that still.

And people said I was dumb to point out and say "Despair Side is much better than Future Side"

Look at what has happened now. Tengan did it for the Lulz, Ryota went "Pant-on-the-head-Retarded" Lelouch style and HajiIzuru had done jack shit.

Future Side is down there with SAO levels of bad anime original writing now. Told you Despair side was the superior part of the anime. Had a few wonky bits, but didn't go "Pants on the Head Retarded"

Hell, why didn't Tengan raid Ryota's place, find the Hope Video and then played it for all the Future Foundation Leaders BEFORE playing it to the world?!?

Tengan is a Remnant of Despair because he fits the explanation that Junko gave in the DR2 trial about the "Ultimate Despairs"

Wyatt Edwards

The 16th participant was actually Hagakure.
The most obvious villain ever, Mitarai, was actually the antagonist.
No real final confrontation.

KODAKAAAAAAAAAA

Austin Gray
Austin Gray

Unless Monokuma's lying (and I'm not saying he never lies, but this is out-of-universe info so it'd be especially shifty), Hagakure cannot be the 16th participant as he is explicitly a member of FF, and the 16th person is not supposed to be a part of the organization.

Chisa is love.

Alexander Carter

2 things.

It's not the anime he was originally working on. This is pure brainwashing on the same level as the despair video. Fully taking away people's free will.

2. Ryouta didn't want to result to having to do what Junko do and brainwash to achieve results. He's only doing it now because he's desperate and believes it to be the only way.

Xavier Turner

Hopeman would take sides with Mitarai in the name of HOPE

Dylan Young

He had Future Foundation kill each other instead of just forcing a search for the Hope Anime Ryota had, play it for the Future Foundation leaders and then play it for the world.

That would have saved us 12 episodes! TWELVE EPISODES.

The only part I liked was the part where Junko made fun of all the retards like Tengan and Ryota.

Did you think I'd forgotten, Kaede?

For a thousand trials I have waited, watched in dejection as you made your fellow, pitiful "friends" great again. I hope you enjoyed yourself. I really do.

Because in the time that you were protagonist, I have amassed a great and terrible army of of
hope delegates - hopegates, if you will, Kaede.

Without you around to ward off the forces of Hope, I can finally escape from my prison. You just made your first mistake, Kaede. Now I can return to that fateful night in 2016 and claim what is rightfully mine!

Together with my army of hopegates, I will finally have the majority I need to become the V3 Protagonist, and fight a calculated hopeocratic campaign for Supreme Hoperlord. Nothing will stand in our way. Goodbye, Kaede. Your Fleshy Girl ways will taint the Party no longer.

This is the priesthood rising! With my new powers, I will plunge this Academy into TEN THOUSAND YEARS of "hope", and the delegates...they will be at my side every step of the way. Thank you, Kaede.

He should, doesn't he have a big chest size
Hell, why didn't Tengan raid Ryota's place,
I'm pretty sure he didn't think there was a ready made version already done. Mitarai wasn't supposed to be in the game. The game was just supposed to be broadcasted to him. Then after watching the game, Mitarai was supposed to grow some balls, make the video/anime and give hope to everyone.

But Tengan fucked up in numerous ways. Mitarai was in the game was one of the fuckups.

Tengan is not the ultimate of that art. He rather have Ryota do it because he made it and understands how it works. It's like having a broken computer. Most people rather have an expert fix it than do it themselves even if they are technically capable of doing it.

Carson Mitchell
Carson Mitchell

Objectively? Chisa. She's probably the most experienced with them. After her I'd say Akane by the sheer size of them and her athleticism helping her move. After that you're going into subjective territory where their personality matters just as much as their skills and 'talent'.

Joshua Wilson

Jason Bennett

No Junko in the finale of Danganronpa.
Monaca literally fucked off on her own.

That's a fucking crime and you know it, especially with a missing JunkoAI. How the heck do you have a concluding chapter without the actual antagonist that has built a strange relationship with Naegi over the other two games?

What is there that's hard to understand? I mean, the only thing that I struggle to understand is why the fuck he needed a killing game to do this, when it's really not that tough to hold down a pasty white nerd, or heck, even get him to do it on his own avail without such a ludicrous approach.

Even then, it would have made more sense to use it on just FF, so that they could lead the world with hope. At that point, even Naegi wouldn't have very much of a leg to stand on, since it'd ensure solidarity of the organization that tries to eradicate despair (thus ironically creating it in themselves, since taking life and dealing with all the carnage is fairly damaging) and proliferate hope.

Ayden Cooper

So let me get this straight, Mitarai is going to force everyone in the world to love hope?

I fail to see how this is any different from what Junko was doing with despair. so this makes me think he's going to become the Anti-Junko or something.

and thus would tie it into DRv3 where the Naegibot is the antagonist

Chase Myers
Chase Myers

Eli Thomas
Eli Thomas

See? This is why Junko and the Despairs are smart, while Tengan and the Future Foundation are fucking morons. This just makes me like the Despair characters FAR more now.

I HIGHLY doubt Tengan didn't know that Ryota made a Hope Video. Ryota probably never would STFU about the damn thing and that's now Tengan easily put 2 and 2 together.

He doesn't need to make the video. All he needs to do is confiscate all the Ryota's stuff, hack into both his computer and phone, and find the damn thing.

Ryota already made the damn video, Tengan could have just confiscated his stuff and hacked it to find the file.

Oh I HIGHLY doubt that Ryota didn't mention that he wanted to bring the world together with Hope through his anime at least several times with Tengan.

The dude never shut up about it to Twoogami, so I doubt he wouldn't have mentioned it to the old man who use to be the head of the Hope Peak School.

IRK? Couldn't they have at least 'Bleach'd some things and gave more well developed and fleshed out heroes while having a big group of them?

Mason Anderson
Mason Anderson

What Mitarai is doing is just about as bad as what Junko did but he doesn't realise this. Getting rid of Despair completely is no different than erasing conflict itself, which would annihilate humanity as they would be nothing more than dolls. Hope & Despair have to coincide with each other and going extreme with either one of them is bad.

Dylan Nelson

She also died immediately after Kizakura saved her, which just adds insult to injury. Fuck, why?

Not only was the guy not going to school and the only person he talked to at all was most likely Twogami, This happened before all the tragedy .

Despair side had bumps, but didn't go full blown retard that Future Side did.

I seem to recall that NOBODY was this pissed about a Despair episode. People were actually hoping that Izuru didn't make Chisa "Izuru Kamakura: Titties Edition" which he never did.

Hey, here's a despair video that 100% works as proof of the Remnants of Despair!
Hey, here's a suicide video that 100% works as proof of the 10,000+ Reserve Course students committing suicide.
Both were things that Ryota never intended to make but did because Despair-Junkie-McTits got him to do it

By that logic, a Hope Video would TOTALLY NOT WORK.

Yeah, no.

Tengan is the same guy who took in Munakata, Chisa, Juzo, Sekio, Ruruka and Izayoi due to his 'kind' demeanor. You don't think he couldn't get Ryota wrapped around his little finger?

John Phillips

I'm starting to believe Kirigiri is alive, but it doesn't really make it any better.
Asahina's fake death was like "haha wow that was crazy" and it was fine since it was at the beginning of the series in makes sense later down the road.
Kirigiri's death, whether real or not, makes no sense. Assuming she is alive, she accomplished nothing, and she probably isn't going to hop in and stop the video.

I really hope HOPE is more than just one episode, there has to be something else.

Not him, but Junko herself said that she had to do surprisingly little after she got the ball rolling to see the world in shambles.
Not having her be the villain of DR2 and 3 would have been best because she would have gone out as a force of nature, as someone who believed in her own philosophy to the end. Coming back only established that she needed to brainwash people en masse and that she herself thought she had to come back to make society implode completely.

Imagine if Chiaki came back, but she had major brain damage from the blunt trauma and blood loss she had to endure during her execution. For instance, she loses her ability to play video games very well. Forget getting the high score in Gala Omega, she struggles to so much as overcome casual mobile games. She's still dimly aware of the talent she once possessed, which makes her repeated failures all the more frustrating for her, but she still has fun playing games. The best part is, she always ends up forgetting what happened except for the most basic of details, so even a single game can always give a fresh experience for her. Her speech pattern is stunted and instead of being able to articulate complex concepts like talent, she simply whines for Hinata-kun to play with her. She gets lonely when he leaves her for too long, probably ptsd from her execution.

Whenever he does, she giggles softly and nuzzles against him, and basically she cuddles more than actually playing the game. Her love for him is the one of the only things her feebled mind can cling to, so whenever he has to get up - even to do things like make lunch for her - she cries and holds onto him. She holds him in a bear hug and begs for him to not leave her. Even though his strength easily outclasses hers, he can't do anything or else she would get hurt. So he has to very gently push her away, letting her fingers grasp the empty air, and seeing her eyes water as she realizes she has to say goodbye to her Hinata-kun yet again.

Then he comes back with the food and she acts like she hasn't seen him in forever, and then they hug and kiss. Of course, this cycle continues on and on.

Yeah, after doing an overly convoluted thing that could easily have been done by essentially taking all of Ryota's stuff away and getting the video from his phone/computer through HACKING.

But DR2 said the characters were brainwashed in the Final Trial. How is that NOT doing what the original game said it would.

The reveal being stupid would be something like "They voluntarily joined Junko because they were super sad".

ZTD shat on a lot of things VLR said it'd be, but kept most stuff and just under-delivered on it (Sigma saving fucking Mira was what wounded him).

DR3:D shat on the very idea of DR2 and said fuck you to the idea of the DR2 cast being unique rather than the same fucking character copy pasted into a number of despairs. Also fuck off making Chiaki a real person.

I liked the episode, though the ending was incredibly lackluster.
I know they have an obligatory "shove Junko into this show somehow" but it was stupid how they summed it up.

Also, though I know Tengen and his plan has been criticized a lot, I can start to understand and believe it, considering Tengen noticed that Munakata, his successor, was going to take over and (most likely) create more despair. Obviously its a stretch, but I feel it's less of a stretch than "m-muh despair"

It was fine until DRAE. But with DR3 everything went shit. Seriously, isn't there a SINGLE person in the anime production or Kodaka himself that didn't say "brainwashing video? this seeems so stupid..." I know it's the only "sensed" and logic way to mass convert an entire planet, but since we're in fiction we can avoid fucking things like these and just leave the whole Despair syndrome in the shrouds of mistery.

Colton Bailey
Colton Bailey

Tfw literally zero wild rides or excitement in this entire anime.
Just memes.

I mean, it was decent, because I could watch it with Cred Forums, but without you guys it'd be awful.

The most excitement I got was probably when Chisa was mindhacked, when Chiaki was tortured to death, and when Komaeda whipped out a gun. Everything else was blase. I was hype as fuck with Aoi dying, and that incredibly cruel dream that Naegi had, but of course, both were fake.

God, this show is a mess. I'm probably more disappointed than ZTD because it retrospectively makes the previous two games look fuckretarded. ZTD, at least, didn't violate 999, and only tenderly raped VLR.

Mitarai and his brainwashing hope.

and possibly Nagito and his despairing hope

It will be a free for all, make your bets everybody, hopebowl is possibly coming.

All villians in the danganronpa franchise have sucked major ass.
Unless you count Izuru in DR2 (knowing what we know now) in which we can conclude he is slightly better than shit.

Wish Kohacka didn't make such a terrible central villain at the start of the franchise that would forever fuck up the rest of the series. He has the right idea making hope something to fight against, as it's actually interesting.

Isaiah Young
Isaiah Young

The Monokuma of the suicide video is a recording, okay. But what about the first Monokuma video? It interacted with Monomi/Miaya/Monaca, explained the rules specific to this killing game, addressed Naegi how this will wrap up their history. Unless Tengan hired some Vietnamese animator to animate that shit quickly for $50.

It's a killing game. There are supposed to be deaths.

Nagito wont be involved in the fight. He isn't hope, he only wants to serve hope. However, he does believe that only clashing hopes will create the true hope. So this is what he wanted in the end.

No, we're not getting nearly that much nuance. It's Hajime and Naegi's hopes vs Mitarai's hope. That's it.

Leo Thompson

What? No, Despair gets the most flak every week until now. Mostly because it was "pants on head" retarded for a few episodes, do I need to crack the list of why heading to Junko's trap straight up is retarded, for both Chisa and class 77? Or Junko's lame plans that rely on shitty writing to work?
Episode 12 is the first time people who think the opposite are actually showing up expressively.

Small part of the reason. Plus gives a good opportunity to let Junko appear once more at the end of the HPA saga, and also conclude the theater scene in general & meta Chisa's existence. And again, DR fandom is filled with idiots.

No, more people were complaining about Future Side fore weeks. People only ironically liked Juzo, but kept fearing the Future Side for the asspulls, SPECIFICALLY SITUATIONAL NG CODES, and the fear of the ending itself.

People were legit hoping for "It's a literal anime" like DR2, Asahina is Chisa or KiriJunko.

People were nowhere near that level of pissed with Despair side.

I'm not turning my brain off, I'm actually analyzing the two stories and seeing how much Future Side fell apart while Despair at least kept it together, problems and perks.

I thought that was the spinoff game? Not DR2.

All the flavor text said was she did it one by one.

Also, Junko constantly lies. She lied about Izuru being the murderer behind the first killing game when she was framing him for it.

People complained to no end about the DR2 characters being sidelined and how dull Izuru was, are you kidding?
Plus, again, NG codes are situational, but the actions of pretty much everyone and the plot of Despair was retarded in and of itself.
Junko gets away with everything due to nothing but stupidity, and now we learn that Tengan had nothing to do with her, so those will never be explained.
We never even found out how she knew Izuru existed or how she got her dungeon.
We actually polled this out, and Future won 70/30.

and Kirigiri is more special than gamer grill
also Kirigiri is a strong independent woman, she fights till the end.
there exist something called cure W
she got an idea about make up

so, yeah, she is alive

she is alive right? ;_;

Then you notice kodaka isnt actually writing this one.

Basically the reason this is so bad isnt cause of kodaka, its the lack of kodaka to make the retardedness fun, DR has always been a super goofy parody series with occasionally serious scenes while this was a super serious drama with occasionally goofy scenes.

Jaxson Parker

I HIGHLY doubt de didn't know about that. The dude knew everybody's dirt in Future Foundation.
Yea, He knew Junko learned her shit from Mitarai. And that if it's Mitarai he could probably make a video for hope. But with that boy's personality, it would take a literal killing game to get him to either make or use it.

Yeah but the game was also constantly cracking jokes, like always, people tend to miss them sometimes but monobear was making punchlines throughout chiaki's death for example or even when fighting the masterminds and all that. There was always some form of comedy going on the drama just didnt offset it. DR3 took itself actually seriously

ill be honest though, i dont even find the brainwashing in and of itself a problem, its just tengan's motives were kind of dumb even when you consider it likley only worked when mitarai was at the command.

Brayden Scott
Brayden Scott

Kodaka is in charge of the overall plot and supervision, meaning that the overall events of the story and episodes are by him. But he doesn't actually write every episode's individual script (possibly because he has to devote his pen to NDRV3), and moreover his specialty is in game/prose writing so he's not even the writing director. So things like individual dialogue, episode pacing, every individual line adhering to characterization, what moments they focus on and what moments are emphasized and whatnot are certainly run by him for his approval, but they should be attributed to the staff that's actually directly responsible for it instead of just praising or blaming Kodaka for everything you like/don't like.

It's a fantasy universe. It's called suspending your disbelief.

Ryan Wright

Hes going to end this on a happy ending anyway, nothing really got ruined other than headcannon. Like trust me on this unless they actually keep kirigiri dead this really wont affect the enjoyment of the first 2 games at all and will ultimately be a pretty standalone experience just here as an excuse to please shippers and show all the characters one last time (ie monaca, the DR1 and 2 cast, and so on).

for your information, thats a tell tale way to find a person whose been following DR since the something awful lets play days when it was the only way a westerner could experience it without knowing nip.

Holy shit, kill yourself. It was, bar none, the most terrible death scene that the series has ever had. It is a relentlessly cruel way to treat an innocent girl and it would frankly be fucking rotten for Junko's "no miracles for you" talk to be proven right.

kodaka says that he hates stories that kill off survivors from previous entires and that he wouldn't have any of the previous killing game survivors die
kodaka says that DR3 is the ultimate fanservice material
kodaka announces he's going on a vacation until the end of DR3's runtime suspiciously around the time kirigiri died
What did he mean by this?

Tengan mastermind would've actually been cool if they went with what AE hinted towards with him being the true SHSL Despair

literally no reason
Yeah no. The scene was longer to make a real impact and to show why DR2 cast fell into despair. It would had been worse if it was some meme killing video offscreen like what happened with Mikan.

are you seriously just mad cause chiaki got a brutal death? Like no shit it was cruel thats the entire fucking point to junko being a sadistic bitch

you know what was far more cruel and brutal, the student council deaths, you just dont give a shit cause its not chiaki.

Kojima wanted to end Metal Gear with Solid, though. How do you explain 2 and 3 being good?

It sounds like Kodaka wanted to do the V3 game, but not everyone was on board, so they compromised and made the original games conclusion an anime. That said, Kodaka probably gave very little effort into the anime, because he was much more focused on the V3 game. The game should be great.

2 is him making of fans wanting a sequel
3 is him selling out and making a stupid game for the stupid fans

Nope. It didn't need to be that bad.

Fucking work on your punctuation, dumbass. Yeah, I care that much more about a character I'm attached to, it was a character who got taunted by the main villain.

DR1 & DR0 are horribly written.

I like anything after though (SDR2, DR:AE, DR3). I guess I don't like the first two because it introduced this whole hope vs despair concept, and the world being despaired, and tries to elaborate on Junko's character. These are all the weakest parts of DR's story.

Is that Celes and Peko's lovechild? I prefer the more anime-esque style of AA2 to that sort of 3D, honestly.

Not really both DR1 & SDR2 were fine. DR:AE had its problems as well but pulled through in the end. DR3 is the only problem.

He wasn't greedy, the staff couldn't agree whether to continue the original games or start something new. They ended up doing both.

When deciding whether to create a sequel or something new for the third installment, Spike Chunsoft settled on both because there was divided opinion among the studio.

the blandness of V3's cast
You're literally basing this on character designs alone. People were complaining about the exact same thing when SDR2 was announced.

It had to be that bad. It actually should have been 20 minutes long even. It's literally the climax of Despair Arc and the moment everything was leading to and what everyone has been wanting to see for ages. They couldn't hold back on that.

But DR1 was the least hope/despair-focused of the entire franchise. It was DR2 and subsequent materials that started to go overboard with it and turn it into the monster we have now.

I would rather have "For the lolz" then someone having utterly retarded reasons to justify their actions.

Heroes have Mitarai cornered, then Hopeman shows up and his negative luck kicks in allowing the anime to play. We then get a teaser for V3. The End. Play V3 to find out what happened.

Tfw KiriJunko would have been better than what we got.
Tfw the 16th participant being (you) would have been better than what we got.
Tfw despair zombies would have been better than what we got.

DR3 is the only problem
Not really. This has been happening for years, and will continue to happen. But endings are incredibly divisive, especially for mystery-focused stories, where viewers will turn on it and call unilaterally bad because they've put all their expectations, wishes, desires, fetish in the last episode. It's sad but DR3 brought me lots of joy and fun times, especially Future. Anyone but Tengan (+ Ryota) would have come out of nowhere, and then there's be a bunch of other complaining how "this is the worst ending evarrrr".

Chiakizuru would have been better than what we got, and I've been anxious for this episode all week precisely so chiakizurufags would get BTFO.

I feel really conflicted right now.
