Well, I beat the final boss last night. Overall, I think the story is better than the other 2 games and I like how in the end, despair wasn't as much of a focus but instead how different hopes can clash against each other. I'm glad that the bad ending in this game also takes you back to the choice like it did in DR1. Monaca is probably one of the cruelest villains I've ever seen. This game also completely redeemed Toko as a character. I like how all the villains really made you think of morality in general. Now I'm about halfway through ultra despair Hagakure and I'm finding his character to be way less annoying than before and I like Kanon's character so far. It's also interesting how Future Foundation is also hated by many people.

People might find this is crazy, but I didn't like the constant "What should you do?". Trust me, it was a really good idea to force the player to choose, but I should've only been done three times AT MOST! Still, I really loved the crazy plot twist this chapter had (though nothing could beat the DR2 plot twists). It made another unique ending to be remembered by. Also, Mocana was a really great villain, but I still want to murder her and she's.... creepy to say the least.

(sorry I just can't handle my love for Komaeda. He looks so good in animation! I guess I'm a generic DR fangirl)

Anyway, I can't wait to finish the spin off novel. At the moment, I've only read through chapter 1 and I'm lovin' Kanon.

Komaeda is still my favorite character in the series. I did find it really grating by the time they gave me the option for the 7th time.

I never thought that i would see the day. What day you ask? The day that i would goggle the HELL outta the DR name WITHOUT having the fear of spoiling myself!

Yes, my Despair-driven trip to Towa city just ended and i'm feeling really awesome! I really loved the ending and the overall plot, even after i was spoiled for 2-3 thingies after all of these 7 months of waiting. I'd say that i loved it equally just like i loved DR1&2.

Actually, i didn't find it so taboo and dark in tone just like i was reading here and there, i was expecting some serious stuff, but it was OK.

One thing is for sure: Things in DR3 are gonna be fucking interesting!

Now excuse me, still trying to gather my thoughts!

A little girl (not even a pre-teen) is sold into prostitution with her mother because her mother is forcing her own dream of being an idol onto her, and somehow thinks that banging old guys is the way to go. All the while, said girl's dad is using the extra money to pay for his mistress, and is ready to sell his daughter into slavery once she gets a little older. And he's not likely really in a position where he needs the money in the first place.

People are being killed everywhere, in horrible, unimaginable ways.

One of the kids made a diorama out of corpses to show off to the person related to those corpses.

Monokuma ate people alive.

the list goes on and on and on.

Most of this was in writing/something you hear about rather than see, so that probably dulled it some. And the whole silhouettes + pink blood likely also dulled it. But, you gotta remember, Komaru and Touko were walking around a town that was filled to the brim with corpses.

Anyway,

LOVED the Final Chapter and the Epilogue. Loved the game as a whole~ It far exceeded my expectations and hype! Komaru and Touko were a combi that I really never thought would be so great! I really loved how much the both of them grew throughout~
Also really liked the Warriors of Hope. Kotoko was my favorite out of them~ Was nice that she ended up helping at the end. Also nice to see that they're all fine afterall. Course, that also means that a lot isn't really resolved by the end of the game either. Definitely a really nice explanation for what starts 2 into motion. And we got answers to many questions that were left unanswered in 1.

Komaru is my new favorite Danganronpa character :mrgreen:

Also....Time to get crucified....I
Spoiler:
like Monaka better than Junko >.>
Not to say that Junko isn't amazing, but I dunno. there's just something about Monaka that I find more interesting.


Haiji cray cray...I always felt something off about him from the first meeting

Man, that was a real experience~

now to play through the game again, but ace every level!

I wasn't sure what ending I would've liked for this game, but the one we got was lovely. I definitely became heavily invested in the story by this chapter, and I wasn't sure where Komaru/Toko was going throughout (maybe that's just me being dense), but the truth bullet combo to take down Big Bang Monokuma was lovely. I really enjoyed that.

Monaca... I didn't really like all that much as a villain. Not even hatred, just kinda ehh. The exposition at the end was all good though and I enjoyed that.

And I'm really happy Kotoko survived. I'm not sure why, but she easily became my favourite among the Warriors of Hope (I think mostly due to her breakdown in Chapter 3, which really made me empathize with her - I also felt a similar reaction to Masaru hitting his arm).

The epilogue was also lovely.

Gameplay wise, I thought the title really hit its stride here. The final boss was a very clever way to make you use multiple truth bullets, I thought, and the boss fight against Monaca's robot was also quite fun (although using Toko meant you could properly cheese it, which was slightly disappointing).

All in all, by the end of the game I thought it had definitely overcome the first few chapters which I thought were fine but a little disappointing, and it became something pretty special. Very glad they did what they did with this game.

@vampko,

Little girls are getting abused even in real life (unfortunately), so yeah, i wasn't waiting for AE to remind me of that.

People are being killed everywhere, in horrible, unimaginable ways. Up to your interpretation, nothing to see in game. Unless by "taboo" we mean a Monokuma slashing a guy with this claws. Really shocking...? :?

Bodies in monotonous colors (blue-pink), so you can't see their expressions, wounds, organs and stuff, whereas in DR1&2, not only you were seeing the bodies of the students, you were also watching the executions of the murderers.

Dioramas yeah, but with a DR twist. Not sooo shocking.

Komaru really got over the fact that she was carrying a head around like this: "OK, gotta save minaa!!!!" with a smile in her face.

So yes, after all of that "OMG! SO DARK! SO TWISTED! SO ABUSE! SO VIOLENT! SO THIS! SO THAT!", I was expecting for out-of-this-world stuff on this department. PERSONALLY, i wasn't shocked.

And as for your spoiler tag, indeed prepare for crucifixion :twisted:

That's what makes it so difficult. What happened in the other DRs, it was all so fantastical. Still pretty dark, but I dunno. But then you read about/see what happened to the WoH, and you realize that this is something that happens in real life.

You actually see a guy getting his arm eaten (not even a silhouette either). Missed it my first playthrough.

Sometimes it would give you a clearer picture of what was going on. Like when Jataro did his TV thing.

G3n3raL86 wrote:Komaru really got over the fact that she was carrying a head around like this: "OK, gotta save minaa!!!!" with a smile in her face.

Uh....no. Just no. She was ready to break down the entire time. The shock that broke her out of it was being talked to by a ghost. Up until then, she looked like (and sounded like) someone who just returned from a village that had become a warzone.

Again, I already admitted that this may have been dumbed down because you just read about what's going on for the most part. Or hear about it from people you talk to. And of course the silhouette thing and the pink blood. But if you let your imagination run a bit, those silhouettes become real people, and that pink stuff that's all over the place: pools of blood. There were moments that the silhouettes weren't used though, another one being the corpse mountain that Daimon shows off.

After reading Ultra Despair Hagakure and playing a few hours in my second playthrough, I have two questions for NIS America.
Which font was used for the adults dialogue and the children's dialogue?

Did Kanon have a Kansai accent in the Japanese verison?
(I'm asking this since I haven't tried reading at the Japanese verison since I'm terrible at written Japanese and from the outdated words she used, I assumed she had a Kansai accent in the Japanese version. Well, that might be a stereotype I heard of Kansai accents so, I don't know for sure.)

Do you want the name of the fonts or are you asking if they're different? The answer to the latter is yes, the adults and the children have different font for their dialogue text.

Did Kanon have a Kansai accent in the Japanese verison?


I will have to check with my translating partner on that, but I believe that is the case, yes.
