The anime adaptation of Danganronpa 3 – The End of Kibougamine Gakuen has been bringing out new character reveals in a slow but steady fashion for a bit. After bringing out a few new characters with their voice actors last week, they’ve now added another trio of actors to the first cour that will be coming, reprising their roles from the previous anime and games:
- Chiwa Saito as Aoi Asahina
- Masaya Matsukaze as Yasuhiro Hagakure
- Takako Sasuga as Monomi
They join the previously confirmed cast of:
- Megumi Ogata as Makoto Naegi
- Yōko Hikasa as Kyōko Kirigiri
- Saki Fujita as Seiko Kimura
- Inori Minase as Ruruka Andō
- Takuya Eguchi as Sōnosuke Izayoi
- Hidekatsu Shibata as Kazuo Tengan
- Keiji Fujiwara as Kōichi Kizakura
- Kanata Hongou as Ryōta Mitarai
- Rie Kugimiya as Daisaku Bandai
- Kenta Miyake as Great Gozu
The new anime adaptation will be taking place after the second game installment but it’s going to work two different seasons that focuses on different elements. The first half is set to land in July and will focus on the cast that we knew from the first season of the anime. The second cour that’s coming later will focus on the characters from the second game, which has not had an anime adaptation. The two parts will be called Mirai-hen and Zetsubou-hen respectively.
The series is being directed by Seiji Kishi based off of composition by Norimitsu Kaihou. It’s being animated at studio LErche with Kazuaki Morita and Ryoko Amisaki serving as the character designers.
Check out our review of the complete first season here.
Original series concept: Hope’s Peak Academy is an elite high school that accepts only the most talented students. Individuals who successfully enroll receive their own unique titles, suitably reflective of their skills and traits. Of the fifteen candidates admitted to the peculiar school that year, Makoto Naegi is a completely ordinary individual who has been accepted by sheer chance, with the title of “Ultimate Lucky Student.”
Naegi and his fellow classmates are initially ecstatic to be chosen to study at this prestigious institution, but these feelings of happiness are short-lived. They are soon confronted by Monokuma, the principal and resident bear, who traps them inside the school. The pupils’ hopes of escape and graduation hinge on one of them successfully murdering one of their peers without being discovered. However, if the killer is caught, he or she will be executed, and the remaining survivors will be left to continue the deathmatch until only a single victor remains.
