Animax Asia Hints at Danganronpa 3 Anime Airing
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Animax Asia began streaming a video on Thursday that hints at an airing of the Danganronpa 3 anime. The video credits Spike Chunsoft and the "Kibougamine 3rd Anime Committee."
The Danganronpa 3 anime aired in two separate television anime series: Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School: Future Arc and Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School: Despair Arc. Both aired in the same summer season last year, premiering in July.
Both series serve as the conclusion of the "Hope's Peak Academy" series' original story. "Future Arc" focused on the characters from the first game installment, while the "Despair Arc" told the story of the characters of the Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair game. The anime shows what happened to the characters before the events of the game.
Kazutaka Kodaka was in charge of the original scenario concepts and overall supervision for both anime. Rui Komatsuzaki was credited with the original character designs, Seiji Kishi was the chief director, and Daisei Fukuoka directed both anime. Norimitsu Kaihō (School-Live!, Gunslinger Stratos: The Animation) was in charge of the scenario on the project, and animation studio Lerche returned to animate the project. Kazuaki Morita designed the characters for "Despair Arc," and Ryoko Amisaki designed the characters for "Future Arc." Masafumi Takada composed the music.
TRUSTRICK and Maon Kurosaki performed the opening theme to "Future Arc," and TRUSTRICK also performed the ending theme song for "Future Arc." The group binaria performed the opening theme for "Despair Arc," and Megumi Ogata performed the ending theme song "Zettai Kibō Birthday."
Animax Asia aired the Danganronpa the Animation television anime series in November 2015. The anime, which premiered in Japan in summer 2013, is based on Spike Chunsoft's PlayStation Portable/PlayStation Vita game of the same name, the first game in the series.
