Danganronpa 3: Despair Arc Episode 4

The Melancholy Surprise, and Disappearance of Nagito Komaeda

Sorry I’m late! Yes there will be spoilers so don’t read ahead if you don’t want ’em.

We finally discovered why Ruruka, Izayoi, and Seiko were expelled from Hope’s Peak. This episode made me realize how closely Despair and Future arc are related since they seem to be playing off of one another.

Nagito is a pretty frightening guy, but probably one of my favorites in the entire Danganronpa series.  After the death of Fuyuhiko’s sister and Mahiru’s friend the classroom atmosphere gets pretty gloomy.  Not to mention practical exams are coming up!

Determined to cancel the practical exams, Nagito creates an elaborate, yet deadly, plan so that his classmates won’t have to take it.  After all, he wants his classmates to perform at the best and they can only shine the brightest when they are at their best.

Bribing Teru with a magazine featuring none other than Sayaka Maizono (I love seeing old characters reappear in their talent forms!) Nagito meets Seiko… and pretty much ruins her life.  A slight mix up between a Reanimator and Reactivator, and a school bag leads to judges ingesting a laxative, a fight between Ruruka and Seiko, a giant dog, and an explosion. Who is to blame for this disaster? Seiko, Ruruka, and Izayoi.  They receive an expulsion while Nagito gets off with a suspension. Talk about Ultimate Luck! Unfortunately, Chisa is held responsible and transferred to the reserve course. Even luckier, that’ where she needs to investigate!

In this time, Hinata is “missing”, or at least he isn’t meeting up with Chiaki anymore.

What do you think of Nagita Komaeda? Do you like him or hate him? Is he good or bad? Let me know in the comments!
