This game is certainly, something. Personally I like it and think it's worth at least discussion about what it does right and what it does wrong and how those mix, because I think it does do lots right and has an at least interesting theme and plot going on. I also think it honestly added good things to the Dangan Ronpa property as a whole, it's just got some really shockingly tone deaf moments later that make it a very hard game to convince people on.

So count me in on this ride to hope, or despair, who knows.

Might as well give the shorthand of the other reformed henchmen. A pink haired shark toothed mechanic who is kind of a creep, an actual European princess said mechanic creeps on who loves old Japanese drama/media, the son of the biggest Yakuza family boss in Japan, and a naturally gifted in more ways than one female gymnast who only cares about eating and fighting.

The only other important characters from that game are the gamer girl who is actually an AI and a guy with luck so bullshit itís literally miraculously good and bad at all times.

Worth noting that Mondo beating Chihiro to death was an accidental murder. Or, at least, the most accidental of the bunch. That case also has Byakuya's biggest rear end in a top hat moment that he never really gets comeuppance for, in hindsight.

Mondoís killing is the only one that involves no pre-planning, he merely has anger issues that boil over at the worst time possible in the worst way possible. Itís worth remembering heís already knocked Makoto out with a punch in a rage previously.

So Chihiro talking about getting strong enough to reveal their secret without fear causes him to snap over his longheld fear of people discovering his older brother died saving him from his own stupid mistake. Then, one blow to the head with a dumbbell and itís all over, amp do doesnít even remember hitting Chihiro afaik.

I think like, the one thing missing from The McDís overview is the side stuff, like IF revealing that Mukuro could have been convinced by Makoto to side against Junko under certain circumstances, partially because heís nice to her for the sake of being nice which is novel for the Ultimate Soldier, also Junko is an abusive bitch to her and she thinks thatís okay until Makoto interacts with her in certain ways

This sort of comes up in game when Mukuro disguised as Junko offers to set Makoto up on a date with her sister, which would be herself outside the disguise, if you go through her free time events.

Also the air pollution might not be real and people were trying to free the students from the school and failing, presumably killed by either Monokumas like in this game or Junkoís followers.

Yeah, I never really got on with those nicknames. But hell, what the gently caress do I know. I still call Genocide Jack "Genocider Syo" because I got used to that name from the translation patch for the original PSP version of DR1.

EDIT:


The PSP version I played didn't come with DRIF AFAIK, which is why I never experienced it. For that matter, I never really got into the side material for DR2 either. If anybody has a quick recap for those, I'd be glad to add that in to my recaps.

I don't recall there actually being much side material specifically for DR2, there's a lot of untranslated stuff but it tends to be related to other characters. DRIF is notable for how much of a character it makes Mukuro, and the whole shipping thing. For what it's worth both Kyoko and Byakuya have novels without official translations that expand on their personalities and lives, there's also Danganronpa Gaiden: Killer Killer, which has probably the most ridiculous bit of bullshit in the entire setting.

In regards to the ending of the second game being a convenient miracle Iíve always assumed that Izuruís plan was always roughly what happened and not what Junko wanted. Notably Izuru in the flashback outright says he plans to use ďherĒ (Junko) as she used him. Which brings me to the conclusion that Izuru did more than just upload the Junko AI but he also tampered in other ways so that their eventual victory works. It helps that both Nagito and Izuru have Luck as part of their talent, so of course the best possible outcome for them is the one that happens.

Basically Izuruís problem is the world is boring and empty feeling as the Ultimate Talented Individual, and he has to know a little about how he came to be, so it isnít odd for him to plan to cure himself by reverting to Hajimeís personality. Along the way why not cure the other Uptimate Despairs too. Itís worth noting that Hajime ends up effectively fusing with Izuru, so theyíre both in his head at the end of the game, Chiaki is also in there for that matter.

Hobgoblin2099 posted:

Oh, also, is the Alter Ego in DR2 the same one from the first game?

There are two in DR2, Junkoís Alter Ego which is new, and the one from the first game who you meet during the final investigation and is meant to be Chiakiís ďbrotherĒ.

As another thing thereís actually 2 terminally ill characters in DR2, Nekomaru Nidai has a heart disease/problem that will supposedly kill him by age 21, it hasnít presumably because of either Mikan or another medically inclined ultimate curing it, Nagito should also have died of his illness too as theyíre all 22 at this point and his was fatal within 2 years or something.

Lastly DR2 contains the grossest thing so far, which is the revelation that after Junko's death the Remnants of Despair salavaged her body and replaced parts of themselves with parts of her. Notably Nagito has her hand and forearm, Fuyuhiko likely has her eye, and Mikan being Mikan either performed necrophilia or replaced her uterus and ovaries with Junkoís.

Kazuichi being a creep is constant and consistent, although in this particular situation it was actually appreciated by Akane. He also at one point remarks that he wants to literally take a woman apart like a machine. Almost all of the DR2 cast are presented in a way that you can absolutely believe them being broken into followers of Junko and her batshit despair. The ones who aren't are Nagito, who is still fighting for hope by helping Junko create the greatest despair mankind has ever known, Hajime, who is of course Izuru and a broken individual already by the point he meets Junko, and Chiaki, an AI created by the Future Foundation. I would argue that outside of Toko/Syo the cast of DR2 are broken people in ways that the cast of DR1 just weren't to begin with hence why even though DR1 is Junko's class mates, she converted the class a year above instead.

Iíve always assumed she just wasnít that flattened/crushed, she took almost no damage from the rest of the Ultimate Punishment so itís plausible the crushing wasnít quite as crushing as it appears.

Mukuro was repeatedly stabbed with spears and then blown up, so I'm not sure her body is in much better condition.

Nobody ever accused the Remnants of Despair of being intelligent about how they worshipped Junko. Nagito notes his new arm doesnít even work and is just happy it isnít rotting.

I guess I just donít see why this is the step too far, given Mondo apparently liquified during his execution and was made into butter, or Taka managing to fusion dance with Mondoís spirit and become super Saiyan. Or even the fact that brain surgery turned a normal person into a super genius with every talent possible including luck.

The Ultimate Nurse salvaging body parts for the Remnants of Despair from Junko and Mukuro is honestly pretty tame, itís not like the organs had to work they just had to be attachable. In one of the side stories the main character of that story decapitates his love interest to remove an explosive collar without killing her.

I think people make too much of a big thing about Junkoís lying, given it feels she tells a lot more truths than lies, what sheís actually good at is twisting truths to the worst possible interpretation of omitting/changing them slightly to her own ends.

When she outright lies is kind of rare in my opinion, and is usually for the purpose of perpetuating the illusion of a killing game instead of actually being a lie for the sake of Despair. I think this is also part of what in universe makes her effective, she isnít telling the whole truth but she also isnít telling total lies, so she bends truth until itís a lie and wraps people in her bullshit until they give in to her Despair.

Like, the number of times sheís just flat out lied instead of merely omitted or shifted the truth is quite small I feel, which is why I tend to accept things she says that arenít contradicted as being somewhat truthful. In DR2 specifically I think thereís also a level of her not actually being aware that Izuruís plan is different from hers.

On to this game, god the music really is fantastic and personally I think this is the best Danganronpa soundtrack, because I love lounge jazz. I also appreciate that even without the killing game we get ďexecutionsĒ. I gotta question how the future foundation does anything at all with grunts this bad at fighting monokumas, which Iím pretty sure should be basic training.

Yes, it's actually really useful if you're good at little aim adjustments because it keeps them still for quite a while. I've got a polsy link of just the first fight and they make it dance if you really want to see it.

So, who exactly built an AI and managed to put in a Monokuma? Not an easy thing, it took either the ultimate programmer or ultimate talent to make an AI last time.

We donít know yet but Chiaki and Monomi were not made by Izuru, they were made based on the already existing Alter Ego. So if you can get hold of some of Chihiroís work, which was mostly AI stuff with Alter Ego as the greatest creation, you can probably make a pretty okay AI given an understanding of programming.

Chihiro was working on Alter Ego the entire time they were at school, and either finished or got close to finishing it before DR1. But Chihiroís actual claim to fame was always the work they did on AI, Alter Ego is just the best one they made.

The Laptop wasnít meant to work as you may recall, so Chihiro fixed it and then finished/compiled Alter Ego, who survived given how Makoto is saved when his execution happens. Then the Alter Ego from DR1 is taken to the Island and put in charge of the Neo-World Program, alongside Chiaki and Monomi who are made from the same base code. Alter Egoís are learning AI that can be implemented with baseline personalities and then grow like children, hence Chiakiís free time being a lot of her having a bizarre and eclectic mix of knowledge.

I donít think Chihiro ever worked on the Neo-World Program directly, as it was built/finished by the Future Foundation after Chihiroís death. But Chihiroís Alter Ego was required for it to function at all and a lot of the code likely was taken from Chihiroís work.

Part of the way Chihiroís Alter Ego, and presumably Junkoís Alter Ego, worked is that it would study the person it was copying to construct the personality template. So itís entirely possible both were being made before DR1 and then got finished during DR1. This is also why theyíre both more ďcompleteĒ people compared to Monomi and Chiaki who were just AI with no personality template from a living person.

Personally I actually think this game, like most Dangan Ronpa games, does have something meaningful and interesting it's at least trying to say. It's just also the game that fumbles it's message the hardest, and everything about this upcoming chapter is an example of them completely failing to handle the subject matter with tact or grace at all.

The kids becoming monsters due to abuse and letting that lead to their current actions isn't inherently terrible as a premise for what the game is trying to say, it's just handled loving terribly.

So yeah, my stance is I can appreciate the message that the game wants to say, but recognise why that message is failing to be effectively conveyed or accepted by the majority of players.

Itís also, in part that this series is trying to be a somewhat mature and intellectual discussion of its themes. It is asking the player to actually understand a message and this sequence completely shoots any potential understanding or maturity in the head because itís incredibly tone deaf and awful compared to the way the rest of the kids traumas being is handled.

Thatís the problem, the sexual abuse of a child and a teenager has been used in a way that is at odds with what the message of the game, that abuse is a vicious cycle that destroys lives, by making an attempt to eat the awful fanservice cake.

Danganronpa has this problem in general, where whatever pathos or discussion the game is trying to have is sometimes undermined by the nature of the tropes or fanservice invoked. Itís just this is the most extreme version of something people already dislike in the series, in a game that has changed the genre anyway and isnít necessarily that greatly designed gameplay wise in the first place.

It may not be as bad as it could have been, but it is a very easy thing to point at and say this is a problem, this weakens the narrative and themes for cheap fanservice in ways that the game is trying to say is wrong whilst encouraging the player to participate. I think the game even suggests the groping minigame might be difficult to play one-handed somewhere and I refuse to look to see if thatís true.

Personally, everything to do with Kotoko and the treatment of her particular abuse is the worst part of this game hands down, and without it this game would probably just be considered a mediocre spin-off. With it this game is by far the worst danganronpa game in part because itís actually gone further than any of the others with this weird fanservice backhanded bullshit.

The worst part is if theyíd handled Kotoko the way they handled Jotaro and Masaru the game would probably not have gotten the level of vitriol it got. If her chapter just made suggestions towards the nature of her abuse as a way to highlight her current hyper aggressive personality traits then it wouldnít have been nearly as bad. Like all they had to do was not add a terrible minigame and direct references to what sheís experienced beyond the word Gentle being super upsetting to her and this chapter would have been improved immensely.

Dangan Ronpa is almost always trying to be some sort of social commentary, whether it is effective or tasteful is a different discussion.

Honestly I like the theory of Junko and her actions in regards to forming a cult of personality, the problem is the series undermines that theory with the reality of Junko constantly. That is sheís kind of insane all the time. Arguably the Warriors of Hope backstory about how she found them and gave them purpose is the best example of what she should/could have been as a mastermind villain who ended the world.

Finding the disenfranchised and the broken and twisting them to her ideals until she has enough followers to start a global crisis. Add in that several of those followers from DR2 are dangerous powerful individuals in their own right and the despair apocalypse becomes a little more believable, until Junko talks for five seconds and her batshit rapidly shifting personality ruins any potential for her to look reasonable as a cult leader.

In case the implication was missed nobody in Future Foundation outside the survivors from the first game like or trust Toko, which is why she doesnít have the uniform and isnít really a full member. Her word means less than nothing and Byakuya has been locked up the entire time so he has very little proof of anything.

Also, Future Foundation are fanatically anti-Despair, the second game makes this abundantly clear in that they have no intention of even trying to spare or cure the actual Remnants of Despair and Makoto has to actively disobey and betray the Future Foundation as a whole because their hope for the future is kill anyone who is going to threaten their shining future.

Basically Future Foundation are so against the possibility of despair that they would not care to listen, the second they see dead kids and celebrating adults theyíll attack. The production of Monukuma is in of itself bad enough given the Future Foundation do use scorched earth policies when fighting Despair.

Also if you're starting to think Despair and Hope look like stupid buzzwords with no meaning that's intentional, Dangan Ronpa sort of pivots into the meaningless of these big ideas that have no actual bearing on people's lives or happiness if they're ignored.

If this is true I would definitely like to believe it and would take back some things I've said about the franchise, but--and maybe I'm missing something obvious on my part--I'd really enjoy an explanation or showing of evidence from the games to support this or a link to a source that does so (if possible of course!) before fully buying into it

Itís the crux of the Dangan Ronpa 2 finale, where Hajime Hinata declares that they will fight for neither Hope nor Despair but to claim their own future, built by their own hands and those of their friends. Which considering the damage the Remnants of Despair caused in the name of Junkoís despair and the fact that they were going to be killed in the name of the Future Foundations shining hopeful future makes them deciding on neither pretty reasonable.

Wanting to kill the remnants of despair didn't exactly require a lot of fanaticism. We don't get to see a lot of what they'd done directly but they'd personally killed a lot of people and worked with Junko to kill, uh, well, billions.

And Makoto says "I can cure them, they'll be just like they were in the distant past of... 2 years ago". It's not really surprising that the Future Foundation didn't agree with it.

You're not wrong, but the Future Foundation don't even attempt to think of alternatives and put out the order to kill on sight, without even knowing who the remnants actually were. That's a big thing, the Future Foundation don't know that Class 76 are the Remnants of Despair, and in fact thought they were people worth saving until they discovered the truth. So any potential Remnant has a kill on sight order without necessarily requiring actual evidence at the time, then when they learnt of Class 76 it was too late because Makoto had taken them to Jabberwock for his plan.

Also it's more like 3 years I think, and conceptually it's they'll be like they were before they were despair which is actually a much bigger deal than just 2 years ago, on the average. The other bit is that they'll kill anyone, not just Remnants of Despair, who threaten the shining future filled with hope the Future Foundation believes in. They're not evil but they're not good.

This is also why the potential for the people of Towa City to look like Remnants of Despair is Monaca's plan, because she presumably knows Future Foundation have a no tolerance policy for potential Remnants of Despair.

Shirokuma and Kurokuma at least both seem close to one of Junkoís rapidly shifting personalities from the ends of the two main games.

Speaking of, I personally like that this game tried to be different in a meaningful way with a unique message. It didnít necessarily land 100% if the time but I appreciate the attempt.

I also think this is an intentional non-ending. The Warriors of Hope no longer believe in Junko/Monaca but remain free in the city, Monaca is becoming the successor but Nagito has to leave soon and she might not amount to anything, Toko and Komaru remain in the city to vaguely fight but have no real goal.

This was quite literally a meaningless side game and Dangan Ronpa sometimes likes going into meta commentary on the games themselves so maybe thatís intended.
