Also known as Danganronpa: Kibou no Gakuen to Zetsubou no Koukousei – The Animation, episode 2
This show is anything but slow when it comes to killing off characters. I know, shows like Attack on Titan do that even more readily, but there we have supporting cast slaughtered. In Danganronpa we only have 15 people, so each death looks more significant.
By the way, just in case, below this line there will be massive spoilers for the whole episode.
So they killed two characters already. Both I thought would live till the very end. Both of those two are female students, both are supposed to be the most attractive of the most, so I thought they would keep them as long as possible for fanservice and what not. Point is, I thought that killing off guys would achieve the same effect but wouldn’t hurt the show as much. Well, being unpredictable is a good thing for a show.
Ok, now we are left with a question, who is the culprit. From what we saw, I can say for sure that it is not the white-haired girl (Kyouko Kirigiri), cause she seems to be actively investigating stuff, even on her own. The culprit wouldn’t need to do so. Also we know that it is not Naegi, the protagonist. So, who is left? Everyone else, it seems. I would have voted for Celestia, the girl with black drill-shaped hair, just because her ideology of adapting to the rules suits the image of the murderer very well.
The only bad thing about this episode was that they put up this rule that everyone dies in case they fail to find the culprit. That leaves no doubt that they actually will find the correct person. On the other hand, it maybe better than being unsure of everything till the last episode, I don’t know. Hope you liked this episode. See you next time (^_^)/
