    The background monokuma dancers kinda give it a high school show choir vibe, but I’d totally pay to see this live! That actor playing Hifumi looks awesome.

  • Smooosh

    R-E-O-N, REON!

    Looks pretty cool actually, I always imagined those stageplays being really cringeworthy but the actors do a great job.

  • JohnNiles

    That was hilarious. I’m disappointed there wasn’t a guy in a bear suit (not counting the backup dancers).

  • Mr_SP

    True secret of the Danganronpa Play: It’s a murder game! One of the performers dies in each Performance! See if you can spot the difference!



    That was the best

  • Tincho Kudos

    Best stage play ever.

  • NyaBoy

    “Hey, he just spit on us !”

  • please please please let them release a dvd of the play ;__; i need to see it

    that junko is everything

  • CS

    Typically, not too interested in plays but this looks unique. Eh, why the weird camera angles for introducing the female cast? Celes’s costume looks great. Leon’s actor looks good too.

    Now I want to see Komaeda as a IRL person…

    Junko <3

  • Now this is despairingly intriguing.

  • JohnNiles

    I hoped, I despaired, it was better than Cats.

  • ReMeDyIII

    I’m really impressed with the costume designs and personality of the characters. They really nailed it and I can tell everyone on the cast really knows their roles. Having said that, I still can’t get into Japanese actors, lol. I just can’t take them seriously. Maybe I’ve become too accustomed to Hollywood acting.

    • WhyWai

      But this is stage play. maybe u should compare it to musical rather than hollywood.

  • I know people like to give flowers to performers if they do well on stage, but those flowers at the end look more like remembrance for the poor actors who die every night…

  • LOL at Sakura =))
