The Current – Hope VS Despair: Diving into Danganronpa

In a nutshell, Danganronpa is a murder mystery visual-novel game for the PSP made in 2010 which has recently gained a huge swell in popularity. In the game, you take control of Mokoto Naegi, who has been accepted into the prestigious Hope’s Peak Academy under the title Super High School Level Good Luck. Hope’s Peak is a place that supposedly gathers the best and brightest students in all of Japan in various fields of interest, in other words, “Super High School Level (SHSL)” students. One student is chosen randomly from all high school students across the county and is given entry to the academy and the title of “Good Luck”. However, when Naegi takes one step onto the campus and suddenly blacks out, he awakens to find that Hope’s Peak Academy is not what it seems. After meeting the eccentric bunch of students that have also been granted SHSL status and Monokuma, a strange mechanical teddy bear who claims to be their principal, Naegi must overcome the despair thrust upon them in the form of a strange rule; in order to “graduate”, someone must kill another student and get away with it. (Danganronpa, Danganronpa 1 & 2 reload, DanganRonpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, NISAmerica, PS Vita, PSP)
