I'd better warn you. I have no compassion, sympathy or pity. That's because I'm a bear.




So what is this about?

Super Dangan Ronpa 2: Goodbye Despair Academy is a PSP murder mystery game published by Spike Chunsoft on July 27, 2012. It was written by Kazutake Kodaka with character design by Rui Komatsuzaki.

I see a 2 in the title. Should I know anything about 1?

Yes! Super Dangan Ronpa 2 is clearly written for players who have already finished the first game. In fact, if you are not familiar with the original Dangan Ronpa, stop reading right now and find out about it. One way to do it is by reading my LP for it (this link will change to an archived version once it is available).

So, is anything different from the first LP?

Several things.

First, despite constant reassurances, as a non-native speaker I was never quite satisfied with my prose writing skills in English. This time I have help: Fedule is working with me editing and rewriting the translation, and the result should be immediately noticeable. Some things to note: I was never an advocate of translations that are too literal, but this development pushes this one even farther away along the scale. I still wouldn't call this a "localisation". You won't find rice balls transformed into hamburgers here, and if the characters are talking about something that isn't obvious to the average westerner I'd rather provide cultural notes than do content changes. That said, we do change some references that are just too obscure or too deeply ingrained in the text. Finding the right balance is tricky, but I think the game deserves this kind of handling.

Oh, and honorifics are still in.

Formatting Notes:

Plain text next to a character icon is still spoken dialogue, bold text is our protagonistís narration and inner monologue.

My own additions are still next to a small Monobear icon for gameplay related stuff and the occasional personal comments.

...and next to a Japanese flag for cultural references.

These are my comments. That is to say, Feduleís comments. I write these unspoiled, so reactions are genuine. I wonít be doing it much, though - the game speaks well enough for itself.

This icon appears next to music links, as well as indicators for silence, fade-outs, and any other important things going on in the soundtrack.

The adventure parts of the game are mostly unvoiced, but some sections are voiced and recorded for your listening pleasure. They have a speaker icon in front of the first voiced line.

Video links are still between film icons . Full videos of trial sequences will be provided to showcase the game's excellent vocal talent and dynamic camera movement, but the content will all be replicated in screenshots. Videos in the adventure part, however, should be considered required viewing.

Finally, we have a new icon for an unidentified speaker, thanks to the talented HelloWinter.

SPOILER POLICY

This LP enforces a strict NO SPOILER policy. Since there is some confusion about what that means, allow me to elaborate:
  1. Obviously, don't write something like "I played the game and the protagonist dies at the end of the fourth chapter."
  2. Don't reference anything that's going to happen, even indirectly. "I can't wait to see the reactions to the next update" or "This chapter's mystery is going to be really hard for you, guys" are bad.
  3. Stuff that was in the game's promotional material pre-release shouldn't be mentioned until it appears on screen in the LP. That includes character names and titles.
  4. If you've been spoiled inadvertently, refrain from posting about it. Often, saying that you've been spoiled about something reveals that there is something to spoil about that something, which gives away too much.
  5. If you suspect someone is diguising spoilers as speculation, do not post about it on the thread. The best thing to do is to just ignore it, but if you are really concerned you may send me a private message.

Speculation is always welcome. Don't put it under a spoiler tag. Spoilers disguised as speculation are likely to pass without immediate repercussions, but remember that I am not stupid and if I see something that is too detailed and exact for me to have any doubts, you're going to get Monobear's watchful eye following your every move.

Fan art policy

If you want to draw fan art or produce other types of fan creations, go right away and post the results on the thread! Original fan art is always one of the best parts of an LP.
If you want to repost found artwork (including video) from other places on the web, please send me a private note first for approval. I am reachable by PM on somethingawful, or at hopespeakacademy@gmail.com. If you're going by email, though, the reply may be late since I do not check that account every single day.

One last thing

This game's story is twisty and surprising, and there are a lot of spoilers out there. As always, I recommend coming into the story clean - I don't think watching spoiler art or reading a cliff's notes version of the plot has the same effect. If you choose to follow that advice, I suggest you don't go looking anywhere else the web for information about the game. Spoilers are literally everywhere.



Dangan Ronpa/Zero is a novel published by Seikaishaís FICTIONS imprint on September 16, 2011. It was written by Kodaka with illustrations by Komatsuzaki. DR/Zero is a prequel to the first game, but also provides important setup for SDR2. Its cast is mostly new, but also contains some returning faces. Itís a fully canon part of the Dangan Ronpa storyline, and you are getting a serialized translation of it in this thread, between game updates.

Dandandangan Ronpa!

Welcome to Super Dangan Ronpa 2! The options on the main menu are helpfully in English, so I don't even have to translate them! START GAME!



Message posted:

If you possess save data from the previous game, you can receive a humble present by loading it. Do you want to load saved data?

Hey, I just recently finished the first game! Also, presents are always fun.

(The present is 100 Monobear coins, by the way)



...And here's the second main menu. That's a lot of question marks. The first option says "From the beginning", and the last "Options". There are no interesting options to show, so let's choose the former.



Much like the first game, we can select difficulty levels for both logic and action. Unlike the first game, choosing a higher difficulty actually makes the game challenging, even if you're not trying to get a good score. Nevertheless, I'm doing this the hardcore way again.



Music fades out, sound of waves splashing.

Hey...
Can you hear me...?







Hey, are you alright?
...You sure look exhausted.
I am too, you know. We all are.
I mean... With all the crazy stuff that happened...
............
...Hey, are you listening?


Ö.........

...What...

...I don't... understand...

Why am I here...?

What happened?

OK... Donít panic. First thingís first. I have to remember...

Keep calm, work my brain, and unravel my tangled memories.

Stop worrying and think! Think, think, think, think, think, think.

There are shards of memory everywhere... but I think I can piece together what happened.

...Yes...

...Come on...

That's right. I'm...

I... am...




Super Dangan Ronpa 2: Goodbye Despair Academy (Youtube via Polsy)



Beautiful Days [Piano Arrange]

That day wasnít just another regular day for me.

No, it was much more significant than that.




As I approached the day I had anticipated for so long, my heart began to swell with a pride I still canít put into words.

I was about to join a community I had revered ever since I was a child.
My dreams were about to become reality, and my reality felt like a dream.




"Hope's Peak Private Academy"...

This is no ordinary school. Nothing about this place is ďordinaryĒ. Not least its importance to me.

You know how a young baseball or soccer fan thinks about their favorite team?
It goes beyond mere support... it borders on worship. Like a religion.

Well, ever since I was young, Iíve held that same kind of reverence for Hope's Peak Academy.






Hope's Peak Academy is located on a prime piece of real estate, and has special approval and rights from the government.
The school gathers together high school students from around the country who are top in their respective fields, and prepares them to lead the world into the future - to bear the hopes of all humanity.

When people talk about Hope's Peak Academy, one particular phrase always comes up:

"Graduating from this school leads to certain success in life"...

I can say with confidence that this is not a joke or an exaggeration.
Many of the top players in every kind of field and profession are graduates of Hope's Peak.

Because of this reputation, people have come to refer to it as ďThe Academy of HopeĒ.




There are two requirements for becoming a Hope's Peak student...

"One must be a high-school student"
"One must be top in their respective field"

Hope's Peak Academy doesn't hold entrance exams, or even accept applications.
You donít go to them - they come to you. Enrollment is by invitation only.

Then, in accordance with their particular skills...
...Every Hope's Peak student ends up being called a "Super High-school Level" something or other.

And, at long last, I, too, am able to attend this wonderful school. My heartís wish had been granted.

To tell you the truth, the circumstances in my case are slightly unusual.
...But that's a story for another time.

Honestly, I don't think it's such a big deal. You'll find out for yourselves soon enough.

More importantly, let me introduce myself.




Honestly, Iím not so special to warrant a formal introduction, and whenever I'm asked to give one I get terribly embarrassed...
But since it's customary, I thought I'd let you hear it.
My name is Hajime Hinata.

Our protagonist, Hajime Hinata (日向創 ) is voiced by Minami Takayama. Takayama is best known for playing the young version of Conan Edogawa in Detective Conan/Case Closed (this makes both of the Conan Edogawa voices have roles in the DR universe). She was also Kiki in Studio Ghibliís Kikiís Delivery Service, and has played many, many other roles in her 20+ year career.

I have one and only one reason for coming to Hope's Peak Academy. I revere this school.
It represents everything I have ever aspired to become.
Yes, I pretty much worship it.
My lifelong dream has always been to attend Hopeís Peak Academy, so I, too, could stand proud...



That has always been my one and only ambition...

That has always been my one and only ambition...

Always always always always always alwaysalwaysalwaysalwaysalwaysalwa




Music stops.

ysalwaysalwaysMeMyselfconsciousNonIndividualityembarrassinguniformityjustwhatHopeI

talent▲individualitybrokenPprobably■finallyIalways○DdomyBestmydreamcomestrue~+i*




H...Huh...?
...What's going on?



...It's a door.

There's a door here.

...But, more importantly, Iíd better hurry.
I mean, I should go into this classroom.

..."Should"?

Why? When did I decide...

No! Thereís no time for this! If I donít hurry...














Huh.

Beautiful Ruin

............
...Huh?
............
...Who are you?
...Eh?
Um... are you quite alright? Your face appears most pale...
I... Iím...
Hey, maybe... Did you also just enroll here?
...Ah! Are you all...?
Yep! Thatís what it looks like. We're the new students here.

So these are... my classmates?

Then... Iím inside Hopeís Peak Academy? But thatís...


Theyíre probably gathering all the new students in this classroom.

We're being... gathered?





...Oy. How about you at least come into the room?
Eh? Oh, excuse me!

...Why am I suddenly speaking politely?
They may all be "Super High-school Level", but they're also my classmates...

That's right... First impressions are essential! I must act dignified!




And so, as I tried my best to hide my nervous state behind a blank expression...

...I closed the door behind me, and took an empty seat in the classroom's back row.


............

My dignity aside, though... what the hell just happened?



Before I knew what was happening, there was a classroom door in front of me...
It was as if Iíd been drawn there by something...

But... how did I come to be outside this classroom?

I can't remember...

Something... is strange.




Um, can I ask a question...?



...What is it?
Why did you all gather here in this classroom?
I don't remember being told to gather here... Are we having the opening ceremony or something in here?



I was just thinking about discussing that matter with everyone.
...You were?



You don't mind, do you? It seems we are all here, so we might as well talk about it.



Eh?! This is everyone?! How díyou figure that, huh?!



There are sixteen desks in this classroom. Now that he's here, there are sixteen of us.



It doesn't take a genius to figure it out.



So, what should we talk about?
Does anyone know why we've all been gathered in this classroom?



There's one thing I want to ask first.
Does anyone here recall actually coming to this classroom?
...Eh?!



We all looked at each other's faces.

Each one wore a startled expression. Not one person raised their hand.




Before I knew what was happening, I found myself here... It seems everyone here is the same.



This is not natural. Your stupid faces tell me that you agree.



Thatís... thatís strange, you're right. If no one here can say how they came to this classroom...



...wait, what do you mean, "stupid faces"?!



As soon as I entered the school I was inexplicably struck dizzy, and then inexplicably found myself outside this classroom.



That was my experience. Was everyone's the same?
I...It was just like that for me too...



Eh?! It wasnít just me?
Everyone getting dizzy at the same time... thatís kinda suspicious!



I...It's very unlikely to be a coincidence, isn't it...?



Which means it isn't one.



...Eh?



In other words, this strange phenomenon had some kind of a purpose behind it.

What heís saying makes sense, but...

What purpose is being served by this? And for who?
I donít like this...




Ku...! Weíre skipping ahead here. The dizziness isnít the only issue.



What else is there?



I mean we should tackle the details before we look at the big picture.
Before we try to figure out why we've been gathered here, we need to figure out why we can't leave.



Huh? Whaddíya mean we can't leave?!



Eh?! N...No way!



He ran up to the door in panic, and pulled on the doorknob with all his strength.



* rattle rattle rattle *



I...It won' open! Why won' it open?!



...Eh?! What's going on?!



Right after we came here, I felt an urge and figured Iíd go use the crapper...



But that door wouldn't budge an inch!



The hellís goiní on?!



If I couldn't open it with all my strength, you guys don't stand a chance.



Ehhhh? Why won't it open? Everything's gone weird!
S...She's right! Everything's weird!
I mean, when I came in here the door opened easily... It didn't feel like it locked behind me when I closed it...!



I donít know the details...



But for now, it seems we need to accept that we're locked in.



...Locked in?



Re: Despair Syndrome

W...What's happening...?

I felt my body becoming heavy.

Severe anxiety began pushing down on both my shoulders.




I donít like this. At all. Somethiní shadyís goiní on...



Or maybe... Maybe this is some kind of an "entrance exam"?
An entrance exam? At Hope's Peak Academy?



But... I had thought Hope's Peak Academy beyond such...



Maybe that's just what they say publicly, and thereís actually a special secret exam once the students enroll...



Music halts

Ah! That's not it! This isn't an entwance exam!



...What was that, just now?



Hey, Fatso... Don't go making baby voices...



I don't feel like arguing about my body weight right now, but that voice wasn't coming from me.



...Huh? So, who was it?



Um, it was meee!



WHO IS IT? WHERE ARE YOUUUUUUU?!



...Isn't it coming from behind that podium?



Behind... the podium...?

Bingo! It seems everyoneís here, so wet's begin!

Fanart Collections

Dangan Ronpa inspires a lot of fanart, both from around the internet and from readers of this thread. It'd be a shame if reader contributions weren't preserved along with the LP, so I'm rounding up all original fan creations and cataloging them for your perusal.

Fanart is organized by spoiler level. There's a "spoiler free" section, for general character stuff and really, really early-game events, and there'll be a section for each chapter of the game. New sections will be added as the LP completes chapters.

Don't look at a gallery until you've finished the relevant chapter!

Junko Enoshima despaired.

Everything turned out just the way she expected...
Everything turned out just the way she hoped... and so she despaired.

...Huh? Is it really that easy?

Magma-like heat boiled up deep inside her stomach, gradually swelled inside her body, and exploded when it reached her chest. The explosion escaped her heart and reached every muscle in her body, bringing her to a complete standstill. The sound of splashing water came from the muddy pool she stood in as droplets of water danced through the air.

On closer examination, one could notice the water was red.

As soon as her body stopped moving, the red droplets of water came raining down, making grotesque patterns on her clothes and skin.

Her clothes, painted deep red with blood.
Her skin, painted deep red with blood.
Her face, painted deep red with blood.

Nevertheless, none of this caught her attention. Instead, she started tapping her foot impatiently. It was a magnificent tap. She put every bit of strength, body, and soul she had into it. Her entire existence. And then, after tapping for a while, Junko Enoshima let out an annoyed yell, as fierce as the roar of a feverish rampaging beast.

"BUT THATíS NOT ENOUGH!"

Her scream echoed through her surroundings, the noise pouring down as if it was a rock shattering into pieces. But she wasnít done. She continued to scream. "MORE! MORE! I NEED EVEN BETTER DESPAIR-INDUCING DESPAIR!". She continued tapping her foot intently.

Despair-inducing despair. That was what she was after. She wanted not only for the world to despair, but also for despair worthy of her own self.

"MORE MORE MORE! DESPAIR-INDUCING DESPA--"

She stopped mid-thought. Something clicked inside her head, and she stopped moving. Her face froze in a surprised expression, and she stood petrified as if every muscle in her crimson-painted body stopped working.

Then, she let out a weak whisper.

"...Oh, I see."

A series of gears and switches began moving deep inside her skull, sparking pitch black thoughts. A certain object floated up inside her mind. A face. It was a face she knew, of course. The face of a fellow student at Hope's Peak Academy.

"...Upupu."

Her body shivered as she started laughing. The shiver gradually spread to her entire body, and then, she started tapping her foot again.

"Upu... Upupupupupupupupupupupu."

This time her tapping resembled a dance. She tapped her foot like a girl who couldn't help feeling joyous. A girl who couldnít help having fun.

"Oh, itís so wonderful! So wonderful!"

And, as the face of the person destined to bring her so much wonderful despair kept floating inside her mind --

Her heart overflowing with a strange feeling that almost felt like love --

Junko Enoshima danced to the rhythm of despair.

"Oh, itís going to be so magnificent, this despair!"

Laughing ecstatically, Super High-school Level Despair Junko Enoshima continued dancing. She danced as if she was losing her mind.

That was the beginning. The beginning of a story that ends in despair.

Nah, but I'm super pumped for this. Fatogami is the best thing.

because our character has the 'poet' trait, this update shall be told in the format of a rap battle.

Uh, wow, did Togami let himself go in between games or what?

The filename for that image is even 'togami'. Holy poo poo.

STRANGLE some PIXIES?


It's here!

I am pretty excited about this! I hope Fatogami dies first. Although I won't loose any sleep if it's chef guy. Better not be any of the more interesting looking people though, like Burly Von Musclesworth or miss suspiciously-smooth-twintails. Seriously I just love how loving weird the character designs are in these games.

E: Also booblady looks like Aoi, who was also a booblady, but she was more than just that. I hope this character is also more than just that.

Actually looking at it they do look pretty similar...

"You little bastards are becoming unBEARable!!"


It's... more anime than I thought possible


Is that muscle guy giving off electricity from his eyebrows? What is that chef-guy? And totally-not-Togami really put on a few before the sequel, wow. Still an amazing rear end in a top hat

Somebody get Goongami to YLLS.

This part is alarming though:

It is almost as if Hinata was undergoing some sort of psychosis and/or hallucinating prior to entry of the "room". Maybe all the DR1 "Naegi is the mastermind" speculations come true and Hinata is behind everything this time?

And why is Goongami in this bunch at all? Didn't Junko mention in the last trial that she has made sure everybody related to him is dead? So many questions nooooo...

So excited.

The fact that you're jumping right into this so soon after the first is impressive.

Also, TOGAMIS.

More importantly, buzz-cut suit dude is awesome.

So we can hear waves splashing, but we're immediately put back at Hope's Peak. Did Junko (or someone else from SHSL Despair) stash some random SHSL students on an island so she could wipe their memories, bring them back to Hope's Peak and play another round of murdergames when the first set left?

Either that or he's a robot and that was what his AI breaking looks like. I mean it's been established true AI can exist in this world, right?

e: I'm totally making this my first incredibly dumb and unlikely speculation. I say unlikely now, but I remember what happened to the last thread's major pet theory...

What? It seemed like
a good idea at the time.


Whoa, that dude is twice the man Togami ever was. In fact I'd say he's more than Yamada ever was, drat.

I bet they're already on a tropical island, but that pink bear set up a fake classroom to surprise them.

I have a suspicion like SystemLogoff (?) did with the first game, but I'll hang on to my chips until we get introduced to the character in question.

Just want to point you to the rules above:

Any scientist with the right background can brew his own booze.

What do you mean electrolytes aren't used for brewing booze? That's silly!

...

Well when all you have are chunks of TNE and an overly large water ration, all the world looks like a still!

Is it... Dangan Ronpa 2? It is! It's really begun! And the beginning is everything I could have hoped for!

BLISS.

But... now I have to wait for updates.

DESPAIR.

Thanks a lot, Fedule, HelloWinter, orenronen! This'll be a blast.

Aha! Is this my chance?


God drat it, one of the best things about this game already is that Togami got fat. I cannot wait to see what's up with this Naegi-looking dude too.

They kinda got lazy with the character design, didn't they. Most of these guys have reused faces or bodies from the previous game. I get that it's anime, but they could at least have tried for a bit more variation. Unless this game is going to pull an SO3 and it'll turn out that the whole game takes place in a computer simulation with all the characteristics of the entrants switched up. But that's just baseless speculation.

I'm digging the muscular dude, though. Hope he doesn't die early like Oowada or Leon did.

Look at this face and tell me he doesn't intend to gleefully to murder the gently caress out of everyone .




It begins... we were free from Despair for a time, but now it claws out at us and drags us back in.

That's not sweat. It's the blood from my fingers, since I can't stop updating.

My regrets are minimal.




I am digging the hell out of this guy's design. I hope he turns out to be a Super High School Level Dancer or Graffiti Artist or something.
