A world without God. Nobody can die. Nobody is born. Only one way of leaving the forsaken world – with the help of a gravekeeper. That’s the mission that a little girl named Ai is entrusted with.
Danger seems to have passed and the criminal caught. Everybody gets a chance to breathe in relief. Until Monobear reminds everybody where they are and what eventually awaits all of them.
One of the 13 students still alive is a murderer. Who is it? That is exactly what this episode of Danganronpa dealt with. Through thorough investigation and search for clues, the high schoolers form their opinions and attempt to identify the culprit.
It’s nice when a story does not take too long to develop. While not rushing anywhere, Danganronpa got straight to business in Episode 2. That’s right – the game has begun, and there has already been the first victim. It is now up to rest of the students to solve the crime and find the culprit, unless they want to be killed themselves.
First episode of an anime is very important. If it succeeds, people will continue watching the series. If it fails, the anime might have lost a potential viewer. Danganronpa: The Animation is one of the former for me. I came to this anime with certain expectations and hopes, which were all shattered withing the first few moments. Feeling confused and a bit uneasy, I continued watching and the epmtyness was replaced by new feelings.
