The story behind Dangan Ronpa is as morbid as it is hilarious. A mix between Persona and Battle Royale, fifteen high school students attending a prestigious institution are all knocked out and end up in the main hall. They are then told by Monokuma (a sadistic talking bear), that they can either live out the rest of their days within the confines of the school, or murder someone and leave. The loophole, ladies and gentlemen, is that in order for the murder to be successful, they also have to get away with it. As you can imagine, just like in Lord of the Flies, the students become more and more hostile, and the inevitable occurs.
