Danganronpa Manga

From Book 1: “Equal parts social sim, murder mystery and courtroom thriller.”—PolygonEach 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 was 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!* Inspired by the video game series for PSP, released through NIS America.* Based on the anime TV show, released in 2015 through Funimation.
