Upcoming Danganronpa Anime Receives Manga Adaptation
The official site for the upcoming anime Danganronpa Kibō no Gakuen to Zetsubō no Kōkōsei The Animation has announced that the show will be adapted into a manga, premiering in the May issue of Shonen Ace, shipping on March 26. Takashi Tsukimi will be providing the art for the manga.
The series began as a PSP action-adventure game by Spike Chunsoft, and the anime adaptation will be featuring the same cast as the game. The story goes that a group of exceptional high school students are locked within the school, and the only way out is to murder a fellow student without being caught. Naturally, somebody dies and the remaining students hold trials to determine who the culprit is.
The anime will premiere later this year.
