As the 2013 Spring season prepares to wrap up, the trailers for 2013 Summer anime are beginning to roll out. Today we have an ad for an anime that I'm actually pretty interested in but still questioning. As stated in an earlier announcement of this series, I wondered how will this series span over 12 or 13 episodes? Danganronpa follows a group of high school students, each with a different exceptional talent who are locked inside of a school and the only way out is to kill another student without getting caught. After the murder of a student, the others hold a trial with their lives on the line. If they figure out who the actual culprit is they all go free and if they choose wrong, they all die.
The synopsis sounds interesting for an ova but it doesn't sound like it will have enough content for a whole series but I could be wrong. I've never played the video game so there might be more to this than meets the eye but there is still one problem. The majority of anime based off of video games have done poorly. Most of the anime that have been based of video games and did well were pretty well known as video games before becoming anime (Pokemon, Higurashi, Clannad, Fate/Stay Night) so what will Danganronpa turn out like? I have no clue but that is part of the reason why I'm so interested in this series.
