Danganronpa Event

Thursday 5th November 2015

With the release of Danganronpa: The Animation just under a week away, we thought we'd share with you our trip to last year's Danganronpa event in Ikebukuro.


Hearing that there was going to be an event dedicated to one of my favourite video game and anime series, I knew it was something that I could not miss out on. I hopped on the train to Ikebukuro and headed to Namja Town.

Upon entering, I was met by a game center packed with UFO Catchers and Danganronpa themed Purikura machines.

Most of the prizes were easy to win and the section was surrounded by really energetic and friendly staff. The things you could win included: giant plushies, soft key-chains, cushions, phone charms and bags, basically anything a Danganronpa fan could want!



The purikura machines allowed you to strike a pose with your favourite character, you then had the option of purchasing a special photo frame to go with it.

Just along from the game center was a street filled with Danganronpa themed dishes, while the meal wasn't anything special, the ice cream and cakes were extremely tasty.




After eating, it was straight to the Monomono Garapon, a lottery where you could win some rare and awesome prizes.


Finally, there was a special store, with lots of goods on sale, here is a photo of everything I won/bought that day.


Here's hoping they host another event soon!

You can preorder a copy of Danganronpa: The Animation on DVD and Blu-ray NOW!

Danganronpa The Animation - Complete Season Collection

was £24.99
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 Monokuma, 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!
When your principal is psychotic and your finals are fatal, high school goes from being the best years of your life – to your last.



Deadman Wonderland

Matt Kamen follows the white rabbit in this brutal prison saga
After an environmental disaster ravages Tokyo, three quarters of the city is wiped from the Earth. What’s left of the once-bustling metropolis is re-developed into Japan’s largest prison, a privately owned concern known as Deadman Wonderland, that forces inmates into sadistic carnival shows for bloodthirsty spectators. To force participation, prisoners are collared with a device that slowly poisons them, a lethal dose building up over three days unless they eat a foul-tasting piece of candy to purge their system and reset the timer. The prison’s chief warden Makina is a no-nonsense ball-buster who never hesitates to punish insubordination or misbehaviour, often with a slash of her lethal sword.


In This Corner Of The World touched and wowed audiences at the 29th Tokyo International Film Festival.


Andrew Osmond on the real “adult” manga
Eric Khoo's film focuses on one of the founders of gekiga, Yoshihiro Tatsumi, who died on 7th March. The framing story is Tatsumi’s account of his life and development, growing up with a difficult family. He had none of the technology and luxuries that we take for granted, no reason to think he could ever make a living from the fledgling manga industry. And yet he was utterly driven to draw comics, like his hero Osamu Tezuka.
