 !!!SUPER SUPER WARNING!!! IF YOU PLAN ON WATCHING THIS ANIME (or even reading my review) YOU NEED TO HAVE PLAYED/WATCHED THE FIRST DANGANRONPA GAME/ANIME AND HAVE PLAYED THE SECOND DANGANRONPA GAME. YOU ALSO NEED TO HAVE WATCHED BOTH DANGANRONPA 3 ARCS. This is going to be a short review since this is only a one episode release and it is mostly a closure thing for the Future Arc. Danganronpa 3 was split up into two anime seasons and a one episode tv special in order to close out the second arc. With some sort of closure for the Future Arc, Danganronpa 3 is now complete. Story: 2/10 So they tried to cram in a “perfect” ending within 20 or so minutes. While they did succeed in crafting an ending it of course felt rushed. It is absolutely a happy ending but a lot of BS things came into play in order for some things to be resolved. Also why are we still left in the dark on how the second game's characters came to be in this special episode? So many things are still left up in the air and it is very frustrating. Overall this special episode is passable for fans of the other two arcs. Animation: 6/10 It might have been due to the lack of action shots in this episode but the animation just looked “ehh”. I was expecting the same quality that we got in the Future Arc but it did feel more stale. If you thought the Future Arc's visual presentation was good enough then this passes. Sound: 7.5/10 Again passable but I am so happy they fit in the main theme from the second game once the returning cast members showed up. Characters: 5/10 They are all here but there is like no interaction between members at all other than little chit-chat sessions. The whole episode was focused on providing an ending, not expanding on character building. Overall: 5.1/10 I am not trying to shit on this episode but this really could had been done better. They rush the ending for the Future Arc and try to set up future events but failed to captivate me. Essentially if you liked the Future Arc to want to know how it ends then yeah watch this special. On its own though it falls pretty flat. Only watch this if you liked the Future Arc. Enjoyment: 1.5/10 Thanks for reading my review!
