Danganronpa: Another Episode Introduces The RPG-Themed Villainous Kids

By Sato . June 25, 2014 . 11:48pm


We recently got some details on the two heroines of Danganronpa: Another Episode with Komaru Naegi and Toko Fukawa. Famitsus latest update gives us a first look at the Monokuma Kids, a group of RPG-themed children who go around murdering adults.

While the Monokuma Kids are a bunch of murderous little youngsters, they call themselves the Warriors of Hope. All of them go by RPG job classes and they madeit their goal to kill adults.


Here’s a look at the five brats:


Masaru Daimon (Hero):

While Komaru fights using some sort of megaphone-shaped hacking gun, Fukawa also fights using a stun gun. She also fights with scissors when she transforms into Genocide Jill after sneezing.

    Calling it now, there’s going to be another character representing secret RPG classes. Maybe a kid who’s close to the characters then snaps and stabs them in the back, like as if Nanako from Persona 4 turns out to be the killer.

    • majestix1988

      maybe it came from Conception Baby Classes(that Kotoko……..O_o)

    • God

      I actually thought she could be the killer at one point, mostly beacuse it would make one hell of a plot twist.

  • Xalsunwolf

    And so began the shipping…
    Can’t wait to see the game and how it will turn out.

  • mokalovesoulmate


  • Raze


    Mao from Disgaea 3 will be proud with these bunch of heroes lol

    Btw no thief? Or archer/hunter?

  • I’m still waiting for this to appear on amiami

  • Guest

    Please Kirigiri! Kirigiri! …


    • I’ve watched that many times in the past

    • God

      What the hell did i just watch?

  • Namuro

    D’aww… How can that adorable little thing in the wheelchair kill anyone…

    *gets run over*

  • Ecchitori-san

    It never occured to me that Fukawa can get that smexy.. :V

  • “Good King Monokuma, Good King Mono, lord of all the land…
    Good King Monokuma, Good King Mono, rules with iron hand…”

    God, now I’m picturing the Thornmarch battle in FFXIV with these guys instead of the Mogglesguard. And of course they summon a giant Monokuma. A truly PRIMAL despair for all. ^_^;

    Is it horrible I’m actually looking forward to leaping (sneezing?) into action as Genocide Jill and cutting up these punks? (“YOU S.O.B.!”)

  • LM009

    I wonder if there is a reason Utsugi resembles a child version of Celestia

  • Guest

    Nagisa Shingetsu… Inazuma Eleven.. lol

  • Henry

    Nagisa Shingetsu’s design kinda feel like… Inazuma Eleven-ish.

    • Renaldi Saputra


      • Henry

        Thanks for correcting.

  • Mirai

    “We fight for our beloved Queen who saved us all Upupupupu!”
    I wouldn’t be surprised if one of them screams out a line like this, at some point in the game. As they’re supposed to be RPG heroes.

  • DyLaN

    Messy hair looks a lot better on Fukawa over her braids to me for some reason. And thankfully Komaru is a female since [spoiler] only murders her crush XP

    Nice design on the kids.

  • Kornelious

    This is definently looking like a Danganronpa I can really get into :D

  • Strawberry Starlet

    Oh Danganronpa. Once again, no1 actually LOOKS evil. Except for the Priest. That dudette’s a creeper. I’m sure they’ll all look hellish enough when they confess stuff though.

    • Mirai

      That’s actually a girl just to let you know.

      • Strawberry Starlet

        Oh, thanks! I’ll make an edit.

  • DragKudo

    That little girl looks like Junko. Well too bad they all have to die…

    • God

      Why did Mukuro have to die…

      • DragKudo

        Blame love, if she had despair she wouldn’t have died.

        • God

          And THAT is why i don’t allow love to exist in real life.

  • MSJ

    Touko/Genocider looking amazing as always, loving dat hair <3

    Komaru looks great and I love the designs for the new kids. Warrior Priest and Mage are my favorites among them so far. I wonder if there will be other classes like thief paladin ranger etc.

  • Leave it to the DanganRonpa franchise to go “You know, let’s have a bunch of kids start murdering all the adults in an entire city.” I love how thoroughly messed-up these games can be. The kids even make their killing sprees into a game.
    Can’t wait to hear localization news for this. (Please, NISA, don’t leave us in despair.)

    • Testsubject909

      This is a 5 day late reply but.

      Considering the avatar picture you have.

      It sounds to me as though you’re saying… “Who wants to talk about MURDERS!? (yaaaaay)”

  • Learii

    let me guess R is to shoot from her Megaphone like a shooting games?

    • MefoSensei

      problem with that?

      • Learii

        for me yea

  • Alex Webber

    What makes the DR series great is the fact anyone can die at any time and no character is safe so its hard to predict who will die and who won’t. Adding in invincible characters like these brats takes away from what makes DR great what a poor addition. Oh well still psyched to see members of the 2nd cast and more genoicider can’t be a bad thing.

    • Thefunyarinpa(Hikari)

      Invincible? How do you know for sure?
