Review by Astrid:
First I want to say: way better. It's so much better than the first anime. There are so many details
that have been put in all 3 parts of the series - I really enjoyed watching this one. Everything was
confusing yet became really clear in the end, and honestly I didn't have many questions after I
finished it, while I did after I finished the first series.
However, there is something that really needs to be known:
HOW TO WATCH DANGANRONPA 3: THE END OF KIBOUGAMINE GAKUEN?
Yes, this is a thing. Why? Some people think you have to watch all the episodes of Future Side at
once, and then Despair side, then Side:Hope. Please don't. You will spoil yourself for Despair Side if
you watch all the episodes of Future Side at once.
This is my guide per episode of what to watch:
01. Episode 1: Future Side | 02. Episode 1: Despair Side
03. Episode 2: Future Side | 04. Episode 2: Despair Side
05. Episode 3: Future Side | 06. Episode 3: Despair Side
07. Episode 4: Future Side | 08. Episode 4: Despair Side
09. Episode 5: Future Side | 10. Episode 5: Despair Side
11. Episode 6: Future Side | 12. Episode 6: Despair Side
13. Episode 7: Future Side | 14. Episode 7: Despair Side
15. Episode 8: Future Side | 16. Episode 8: Despair Side
17. Episode 9: Future Side | 18. Episode 9: Despair Side
19. Episode 10: Future Side | 20. Episode 10: Despair Side
21. Episode 11: Future Side 22. Episode 11: Despair Side (FINAL)
23. Episode 12: Future Side (FINAL) | 24. Episode 1: Side:Hope (FINAL)
Whenever I recommend this series to my friends, this is the very first thing I tell them. You don't
want to spoil Despair Side, because in my opinion that is the best part of these series.
Now, moving on to the actual review and my opinions. Sorry - but I really needed to let you all know,
in case you watch it the wrong way! This is also the order for when the episodes were aired.
Future Side: Did I enjoy Future Side? YES! Do I want more? YES. It was heartbreaking, though. Of
course my favourite died, I'm not telling who, don't worry. Is telling you that someone died a spoiler?
You do know that this is Danganronpa, right?
Anyway. The characters really had their glow-up, even Hagakure. They got some new designs that
definitely fit them! As for the new characters: Totally love them! They really added something to the
story, whether it was their personality that kept the episodes going, or something that happened in
Honestly, I can't say a lot without spoiling. But if you loved the winning characters from the first
series, definitely watch this!
Despair Side: I looked so forward to this one, and it didn't disappoint. I had played Danganronpa 2 on
my PS Vita before this came out, so when I heard it was going to be about the school time of those
characters, I got really hyped. Again - no disappointment.
I'm so glad I got to know the characters
even more, before of all that happened in the second game. How did everything happen? When did
it happen? How did it happen? Why? Everything was explained so well and thoroughly.
It made me
understand every single thing that had happened in the other parts of the series and even of the
You really shouldn't miss out on Despair Side, as it will answer almost all of your questions that you
might've had before!
I think this is both a fun and good special episode! It involves around Komaeda Nagito,
one of the main characters from Despair Side. You either love the guy, or hate him. I don't think
there is any in between.
His character has been showed very well - yes, he can be very caring and worried. Didn't expect that
one, right? Anyway, all I can say that this episode will be pretty satisfying after all you've gone
through. I'm not saying you're not going through something in this special episode, though. You will,
but believe me - you'll be satisfied in the end. That's all I can say!
Overall: Really worth watching, from the beginning of Future Side to the final episode of Side:Hope.
Everything is clear and understandable!
