  • Felecia Angelle as Aoi Asahina
  • Lindsay Seidel as Celestia Ludenwerg
  • Jamie Marchi as Junko Enoshima

Only Papenbrook is reprising his role from the English dub of the game.

Danganronpa will ship on DVD and Blu-ray in 2015, but Funimation has not yet announced the release date. Funimation streamed the series based on Spike Chunsoft's PlayStation Portable/PlayStation Vita game as it aired in Japan in Summer 2013, and describes the story:

Hope's Peak Academy is an exclusive private school that only accepts the best of the best. Graduates of this elite – yet enigmatic – institution have the world at their fingertips, but getting a cap and gown is easier said than done. The hallowed halls are ruled by the sadistic administrator Monobear, who declares that the only way to pass the class is by sending a fellow student home in a body bag. If you can get away with murder, you'll get your diploma. But if you're caught red handed, you'll find yourself on the receiving end of a deadly detention slip!
