Ratings & Reviews
If you love Komaeda, get this manga!
by LAUREN -
I bought this manga for two reasons - to support Dark Horse's localization of Danganronpa manga series, and because I was excited to read this adaptation in particular. I would not recommend this manga to someone who hasn't played Danganronpa 2 - as it takes the mystery out of the first case - however, if you HAVE played that game, this manga offers a interesting and entertaining change of perspective, being told from the point of view of Nagito Komaeda instead of Hajime Hinata. And, without spoiling anything, it is quite a different POV. (And can aid in one's understanding of his character)
The art and translation are both fantastic, though some of the speech bubbles can have an overcrowded look (in one instance, the last word of a sentence was partially cut off at the edge of the page).
Overall, I would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed DR2, especially those whose favorite character is Komaeda! I greatly look forward to the next two volumes.
