A wide group of audiences is ready to see the animation of their favorite video game, and this is exactly what Danganronpa has brought for them. If you go to your school and after some time you see a half white and half black bear on the screen, you must make a run. Danganronpa has made a great name for itself among its fans, and they wait for its coming season.
Its last three seasons were a great success, and now fans are looking forward to the fourth season of the series. So we would discuss the main characters of the series and the plotline of previous seasons, making it easier to evaluate if we would be looking at season 4 of the series.
Major Danganronpa Characters
There are various characters in all three seasons, which makes it hard for users to filter out the core characters, so mentioned below is a list of some main characters which would give you a better idea of the series.
Monokuma is the main character of this entire series with a wonderful effect on all the show’s characters. Monokuma is a robotic bear who claims that he is the principal of Hope Peak Academy. He has a unique appearance in which his half body is black, and the other half is white; in the black one, he possesses a red eye which provides him with a sadistic look.
He has set some rules of the Hope peak Academy and whoever breaks them gets killed or is punished. He is the main villain in the entire misery brought down to the world.
2. Makoto Naegi
A stroke of bad luck can be a good thing for you if it’s extremely bad; this is the condition of Makoto Naegi in this series. Each year, Hope’s peak academy selects one student based on the lottery system, which was the chance for the 78th batch. This wasn’t a piece of luck that he won; the influence of his bad luck canceled out everyone’s good luck.
This might seem like a strange power, but it turned out to be extremely useful for him as this allowed him to cancel his opponent’s good luck and escape from numerous situations.
In the later seasons of the show, there was a gradual rise in his character as when the world was in chaos; he became a part of the group known as a future foundation, which saves people under the reign of Monokuma.
3. Kyoko Kirigiri
The series remains incomplete without a character with exceptional deduction skills, making it easier to solve multiple mysteries and earn the title of the little detective. She is the daughter of the headmaster and by far the person with the most skills in the entire Hope’s Peak Academy. Whenever anything happens, she is suspicious of almost everyone, but she starts to settle her faith in Makoto Naegi.
She notices that she is getting her memories removed more frequently, which makes it hard for her to track the suspicious activities in the school. She has some key features like she wears gloves. She is supposed dead in Season 2 as she breaks a rule and is punished by poisoning, but it is later discovered that she was able to receive an antidote on time, which prevented her death.
Later, she joins the future foundation and fights with Kyoko Kirigiri to protect School.
4. Byakuya Togami
There is always an unsympathetic character in the series born with exceptional advantages and is heir to enormous wealth and power. Byakuya fills this role in the series as he thinks of himself ahead of all other academy students and wants to excel at the academy. But he only finds Makoto as his sole competitor, so he tries his best to make up a name for himself, and in this rush, he even commits some sin.
He is also among the people who were able to save themselves from Tragedy successfully.
So he becomes part of the Future Foundation and fights with other characters to make the world a better place.
The plot of this series revolves around an academy known as Hope’s Peak Academy, which trains young talents to become skilled and save the world. There is a simple process of admission via an entrance test, and each year, there is a lucky draw that provides a wild card entry to the student.
This was the 78th batch admitted to the academy, and the lucky child as Makoto Naegi, who had an extraordinary power of bad luck which canceled everyone else’s good luck.
So soon after a few days of starting the academy, it is found out that everyone is trapped in the academy and a murder game has begun, and the ring leader of this game is a bear. This bear punishes people who try to break the rules, and in most cases, it’s a death sentence.
There are even various suicide videos that are telecasted on television through the academy, which force the students to jump from the academy’s roof. After skirmish and battle, some students can escape from this murder game, and they form a group known as a future foundation, which fights against Monokuma.
In the end, the future foundation finds refuge at an unused building of Peak’s Academy, and their last game is played. Headmaster Kirigiri is found to be the mastermind behind the creation of Monokuma. All the members of Future Foundation come all together to stop him and are successful at last. Later they create a new Hope’s Peak Academy for the coming generations.
Will There Be Danganronpa 4?
The storyline at the end of Danganronpa 3 depicted that the future foundation eliminated the game, and now the world is a more beautiful and peaceful place. Hence, there are no chances for Danganronpa 4, nor has any official statement from directors.
This series has attracted a massive number of fans, and now there is a great demand for season 4 of the series, but there has been no official statement regarding the release of the series. As per the speculations, it’s assumed that there would be news of a new release soon, and Monukuma would be seen in action again.
