Danganronpa Synopsis: Kibou no Gakuen to Zetsubou no Koukousei The Animation
Hope’s Peak Academy is an elite institution that only accepts talented students. Individuals who successfully enroll receive their own unique titles, which appropriately reflect their skills and traits. Of the fifteen candidates admitted this year, Makoto Naegi is a completely ordinary individual accepted by sheer chance, with the titles of “Super Lucky Student.”
Naegi and his classmates are initially delighted to have been chosen to study at this institution, but this is short-lived. They soon face Monokuma, the bear director, who traps them inside the facility. The students’ hopes of escaping and graduating depend on one of them successfully assassinating another without being caught. However, if the assassin is captured, he will be executed and the remaining survivors must continue with the task until only one victor remains.
