“Danganronpa 3” Airs July 2016! “Despair Arc” to Follow!

Just yesterday (26/3/2016), during AnimeJapan 2016 held at Tokyo Big Sight, details on the latest installment of the Danganronpa anime series were revealed to the public. This was also unveiled at the same time on-screen at Shinjuku‘s Altervision and Doutonbori‘s Tonbori Station. Responding to the fans of the series, the animation “Danganronpa 3” was announced to be broadcast during July 2016 – along with a separate “Despair Arc“, currently in production, which will depict the past of two characters from “Super Danganronpa 2“.

During the announcement, a five minute long trailer recapping the events of the first two entries in the Danganronpa series was played, followed by the actual announcement of “Danganronpa 3 – Future Arc” which was slated for airing in July this year. But near the end of the clip, previously unseen depictions of characters in Superdangan Ronpa 2 were revealed, followed by the announcement of “Danganronpa 3 – Despair Arc” which was described in the trailer.

WARNING: This trailer contains spoilers for Danganronpa 1 and 2!

There is much to look forward to for all fans of Danganronpa in the light of two brand new adaptations, especially the “Despair Arc” which expands upon what was thought to be the already complete story of Danganronpa 2. On top of all this, fans are also anticipating the release of the next game in the series, “Danganronpa V3” which will be released this year.
