*Incomprehensible gurgling* Despair won't get the better of us! Hope! You guys are tiring me.

Upupu, The clash of hope and despair, how exciting!

Danganronpa is a Japanese video game developed by Spike Chunsoft and written by Kazutaka Kodaka, which takes place in a prestigious high school for students whom are forced to kill each other in order to escape under the terms of a robot bear.

I always loved puzzles and mysteries, way before I could even distinguish the genre in video games. Few years back, I went in blind and bought Trigger Happy Havoc, spending my entire week completing the entire game. I wasn't disappointed, even if the Hope vs. Despair theme was... a little tacky-- but I was completely hooked onto the idea of a killing game, not to mention the charm and music won my heart. Let me say it again- I went in completely blind. I ended up with a new obsession and a couple new friends through the community, and I don't regret going broke after buying the rest of the series.

"I think it's a pretty common topic that comes up around the DR community:

'Would you survive a killing game?'

My talent in the game would be Ultimate Blader if I had to choose, solely because it's a pastime I'm not entirely known for, and it kinda fits the message I would play off in the games! I wouldn't want to consider myself an antagonist (as fun as it sounds), but because it's so overdone, I think it'd be nice to be a support character, eventually a victim."

Um... Oh right! I don't believe in the hope and despair argument, really. I think the real important ingredients of killing games are absolutely the hope vs. despair theme, but I find myself more in love with the bigger picture that makes you hold your breath. The perfect cycle that oozes from the killings. It's a balance that is always in danger of being toppled over, and that's the true anticipation."
