Danganronpa: From Video Game, To Manga, To Dark Horse's New Graphic Novel Series

Inspired by the Danganronpa video game series and based on the anime of the same name, the Danganronpa manga, Dark Horse is thrilled to announce the publication of a four-volume series. Each year, the elite Hope's Peak Academy selects only the most gifted and talented students to enroll…plus one ordinary student, chosen by lottery. Makoto Naegi is that lucky person—or so he thought! When he shows up for class, he finds the elite students are a bizarre cast of oddballs under the ruthless authority of a robot teddy bear principal, Monokuma. The bear lays down the school rules: the only way out of Hope's Peak is to not only murder another student…but get away with it, as every murder is followed by a tribunal where the surviving students cross-examine each other.

Said to be a quirky, fun, weird, and dynamic take on the high-school battle royal genre, Danganronpa sounds like an interesting read. The series is set to release on March 16, 2016.
