More Ultimates revealed for Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony

The best thing about Danganronpa games is the cast of characters you meet.  NIS is giving us the next round of Ultimate Students participating in the killing game! Upupupu!

K1-B0 (AKA Keebo): Ultimate Robot

85915e1a-816a-4bc4-9dc9-f3c87ec35140

Equipped with recording functions and hyper-advance AI, Keebo can learn to be a real boy! Unfortunately, it doesn’t help him pick up queues from human interaction which in turn, leads to him making comments that get him in trouble.  Keeba is earnest, proper, and is sensitive about the issue of “robophobia”; he won’t hesitate to call out robo-discrimination!

Gonta Gokuhara: Ultimate Entomologist

Raised by a pack of wolves for ten years after getting lost in a forest, Gonta learned to speak with animals and insects. After reuniting with his family, Gonta decided that he must always act like a true gentleman since he spent his childhood in the forest.  He has a hard time talking with students his own age.  Gonta is gentle by nature; he has never killed a fly!

Shuichi Saihara: Ultimate Detective

77572f74-ac6b-4aae-8d68-e138b89b3da6

Another detective is in the midst of a game! This should definitely get interesting.  Shuichi is an apprentice detective with a variety of small jobs under his belt; mostly finding cheating couples. However, he did solve a murder before the police did and so he was named, “Ultimate Detective”.  Although, Shuichi doesn’t believe in his ability.  “Shuichi’s insecurities tend to make him rather timid, but he is quick to act in situations where his keen intuition is needed.”

Tsumigi Shirogame: Ultimate Cosplayer

e2dc3a5a-6a57-4788-b12c-40dc9a848ce5

A true Cosplayer, through and through, Tsumigi loves making costumes but hates seeing her costumes on people who don’t truly appreciate the art.  Tsumigi is reserved, studious, and kind until Cosplay and Fandom are mentioned; she then becomes outspoken and passionate!   “She has a tendency to completely ignore those around her when she’s especially deep in thought. She also has a habit of referencing anime, video games, and manga over the course of a normal conversation. “

Top Anime of 2016

2016 is just about over if not over already when you’re reading this, lets take a look back and see what Anime I considered top of 2016. This is of course all based on opinion, your list might be different than mine or anyone else’s.

I’ll start off with my personal favorite, a very niche anime due to the series its based off of, I’m talking of course about…

danganronpa-3-eohpa-pv

Danganronpa 3

The only way to have enjoyed this anime is if you played the 2 games leading up to this anime, if you start watching it without any knowledge of the games then you will have no idea what is happening and you will ruin the “twists” that happen in the game. As a series end it was acceptable, it made me feel despair as it intended but I do think some characters needed a little more development before being killed off. Regardless, Danganronpa 3 was in the top 3 favorites of mine in 2016.

Re:Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu

Re: Zero is an anime I wrote a little review for go check it out here. Anyway though, even though it now feels like it has a slow start, it still sucked me in until I watched the last episode available. I am definitely waiting in anticipation for more episodes to come out. If not, I’ll settle for reading the manga.

the-disastrous-life-of-saiki-k_stage-key-art-normal-medium_45880.jpeg

The Disastrous life of Saiki K.

The Disastrous life of Saiki K. is one of the funniest anime I have seen in a while. Saiki has psychic powers and is never surprised because he can read minds, except he can’t read the minds of anyone really dumb, like his self proclaimed best buddy Nendo. It’s a great watch. I’ll give more info on an NCG Recommends piece.

Kono Subarashii Sekai Ni Syukufuku Wo!

Konosuba is another Anime we recommended before Here. Every episode was hilarious and the story sucked me in. Go watch it and then join me in waiting for season 2.

Berserk (2016)

One more that we recommended before! I personally loved watching this and could hardly wait for the following weeks episode. I certainly hope it constitutes until it catches up to the Manga, but also I don’t want it to because it goes on hiatus a lot and that makes me sad.

Which series had you hooked in 2016? Let us know in the comments?

Danganronpa 3: Future Arc Episode 9

You are my reason to die

*Same as the rest, spoiler heaven ahead!*

Finally, it looks like the release of Danganronpa 3: Future Arc is back on track.  We were all teased with a recap episode, but thank goodness it wasn’t!

Speaking of Monokuma, he certainly doesn’t play a major role in this series, does he?  Where do you think he is this whole time? Is he just a ploy?

Things start our with some big reveals.  Remember how the building collapses at the end of Episode 8?  Our cast cannot die because… dun dun dun! They are in an identical space under the ocean.  Even though the building above them is destroyed, they all managed to survive because they were not in that part of the building at all. Who would have guessed?

Do you think this fact reveals Munakata as the traitor? Kyoko suspects that he is at least involved because he was involved in the construction of the building.  All events seemed to also play in his favor. Would you agree with her? I’m not so sure.

The awesome Robo-Gekkogahara meets her end.  Munakata takes her “brain” and reunites with Sakakura. Sakakura fills Munakata in on who has died, and in return Munakata tells Sakakura that he has murdered Tengan.  Sakakura says that means Munakata is in charge of the Future Foundation and they can purify the world now.

Sakakura’s dedication to Munakata is unwavering.  He says that he believes in Munakata’s ideals and that he felt it was always his job to support him.  When Sakakura is ready to confess something, Munakata murders him.  When Sakakura asks, “Why?” Munakata replies, “You know why.”  As Munakata walks away he curses Despair for making him murder him.

Do you have any theories on what Sakakura wanted to tell Munakata?  Do you think Sakakura’s confession would have swayed Munakata from his goal which is why he murdered him? Or, do you think it was because Munakata knew that Ruruka was listening and wanted to silence Sakakura so she wouldn’t hear? Let me know  what you think in the comments!

The fourth time limit is approaching. Naegi, Asahina, Mitarai, and Kyoko are holed up in the same room together.  They catch up on what has happened and Kyoko reminds Naegi to never lose hope.  As the limit approaches Kyoko tells Naegi, “No matter what happens don’t give up on hope.  I shall always be by your side.”

The attacker murders Ruruka.

Kyoko dies from her forbidden action, “Passing the fourth time limit with Makoto Naegi alive.”

This was the most heart breaking thing ever! Even though she knew she was going to die, she still put all of her faith in Naegi.  It’s even more so heart wrenching because Kizukura sacrificed his life only for her to die anyway. Even more than that, she’s been there since the very beginning.  What are they going to do without the Ultimate Detective?

Munakata get’s on the broadcast and asks Naegi about Kyoko’s forbidden action.  Whose Hope is right?

I also want everyone to not that Munakata only knows everyone’s forbidden actions because he stole the “heart” from Gekkogahara.  He does not have this information on his own.

What do you think is coming up next? Who will win: Munakata or Naegi?  Do you think we will see the Remnants of Despair make an appearance?

 

Danganronpa 3: Future Arc Episode 8

Who Killed Cock Robin

Spoilers ahead! Fighto-Oh!

Several years prior, the battle rages on at Hope’s Peak Academy.  Kizukura, along with a fellow teacher, are up against the heavy artillery of Despair.  Kizukura makes it out alive, but his teacher comrade, a former P.E. teacher, is not so lucky. Kizukura is trying to make it into the school to save… Kyoko?

Back to the future, Byakuya arrives at the Future Foundation HQ and, along with Hagakure, attempts to enter the building by removing all of the rubble blocking the entrance.

Finally, Naegi realizes that Gekkogahara is a robot.  When she goes haywire, Naegi and Asahina espcape the room only to run into Munakata.  Fortunately, Robo-Gekkogahara is on their side.  The most interesting part about this encounter is how she does not immediately process Munakata as a Future Foundation member.  When she sees him she  says, “New Future Foundation member sighted.” showing that he isn’t immediately registered.  Was it because of the drugs? Was it because he’s not officially part of the Future Foundation? Robo-Gekkogahara finally registers who he is (without specifying whether or not he is a Future Foundation member) and identifies him as a Level S threat.  She goes into Berserk Mode and fights him, giving Naegi and Asahina a chance to escape.

At Izayoi’s crime scene, Kyoko continues to investigate Izayoi’s murder. Kizukura has gained my respect and has also been added to my favorite character list! He immediately catches on to Ruruka.  Remember how I noticed her tears seemed totally fake? They absolutely were.  Kizukura reveals that she has her own faction of young Future Foundation members and plans to leave and create her own organization.  I don’t think this makes her bad.  What makes her a rotten character is that she is the one responsible for Izayoi’s death.

Sakakura enters the scene and vows that he is going to kill anyone who will get in Munakata’s way.  Kizukura lures him into a trap and reveals Sakakura’s forbidden action.

  • Sakakura cannot hit anyone with his bare hands
  • Kizukura cannot open his left hand

When Sakakura is subdued, Kyoko plans to continue her investigation, however, Ruruka sets off a trap that FUNimation_20160831173912nearly kills Kyoko.  Kyoko is saved thanks to Kizukura, who sacrifices his life for her by catching her with his left hand.  Why did he go through the effort? Remember the photo Kyoko’s father had on his desk? Kizukura snapped the photo and most likely vowed that he would protect Kyoko if anything were to happen to Jin.  (This is speculation on my part and not explicitly said)

Kyoko reveals Ruruka’s method of killing Izayoi proving that his death was set up to look like the attacker had murdered him.  Two more forbidden actions are revealed.

  • Izayoi could not eat
  • Ruruka could not allow anyone to leave the playing field

Ruruka murdered Izayoi because he had found the exit and wanted to leave. See how this makes Ruruka so horrible?  Izayoi was her childhood friend and dedicated to Ruruka; he would never betray her.  Had she only told him her forbidden action he would not have tried to leave the game.  Instead, she took it upon herself to murder him.

After finding out there is an exit to the game, Sakakura attempts to leave. Ruruka tries to stop him giving Kyoko and Mitarai an opportunity to leave the room. Sakakura’s attempt to leave is slightly suprising.  Did he give up on the game and Munakata?  Sakakura’s dedication to Munakata seems like it’s unwavering, but I think he is bound to him because of a mistake he made in the past; a mistake relating to Junko Enoshima.

We are down to the final characters.  Who do you think the attacker is? Also, be sure to watch what happens after the credits!
