Both arcs – Art and Music
The soundtrack of the anime was extremely close to the game’s. Songs that were used in game were brought back in the show and were used as hints. There was a particular moment when we met with the Ultimate Little Sister. Those who played the game could know right away who she with the song in the background. It was great to hear the soundtrack used in the anime since it’s one that players we’re familiar with. As for the art style, most of it was in a rather usual anime style. It would have been different and more unique if they added more of the game’s visual elements. The game has a very recognizable color palette, the only element that was kept from it was the pink blood. There was only one scene were the palette was used again. The most interesting points for the visual was the retro style animations in the Despair arc. These were really cute and another reminder of the game.
It’s a wrap!
In conclusion, this was a great anime that the fans would enjoy! It was filling some of the missing parts in the game with an interesting original story. There were many new characters and elements as well. The scenario was staying true to the game’s style and there were many details bringing the viewer back to the games as well. There were only a few downsides to this show, but nothing that was getting in the way. However, to be able to enjoy the season at it’s fullest, it is best to know the game’s story first. There probably won’t be another season for Danganronpa anytime soon, but the third game is on the way!
