FIRST LOOK: Dark Horse debut Danganronpa Manga

September 17th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Dark Horse is thrilled to announce the publication of a four-volume series of the critically acclaimed Danganronpa.

Inspired by the Danganronpa video game series and based on the anime of the same name, theDanganronpa manga is a quirky, fun, weird, and dynamic take on the high-school battle royal genre.

Each year, the elite Hope’s Peak Academy selects only the most gifted and talented students to enroll…plus one ordinary student, chosen by lottery. Makoto Naegi is that lucky person—or so he thought! When he shows up for class, he finds the elite students are a bizarre cast of oddballs under the ruthless authority of a robot teddy bear principal, Monokuma. The bear lays down the school rules: the only way out of Hope’s Peak is to not only murder another student…but get away with it, as every murder is followed by a tribunal where the surviving students cross-examine each other!

Danganronpa is in stores March 16, 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
