Well, everyone!  Thank you for waiting! 

It is time to present result of first Danganronpa popularity vote at Otaku Republic!

:*:・。,☆゚'・:*:・。,ヽ(・∀・)人(・∀・)ノ ,。・:*:・゚'☆,。・:*:


Votes were ten times more than the last Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) popularity vote!!(●ω●;) 

Thank you very very much!


Well, I want to tell you the result.  Let’s go!!

The prestigious first place is the character who sat upon the throne from the start of this popularity vote!


1 Komaeda Nagito




*・゜・*:.。..。.:*・゜(n‘∀‘)η゚・*:.。. .。.:*・゜・Congratulations!!!!


Komaeda-Kun came in a slamming 1st place!  Komaeda-Kun graced 1st place by twice votes!!  Congratulations!

There are many comments to Komaeda-Kun.  I’ll introduce you some of themヾ( ゚∀゚)ノ゙!!



・He may be insane but he has a good character development, and you see that he does care about his classmates.


・He's like the Kaworu of this generation.


・I felt that he was the deepest and ironically, most talented character who was misunderstood by everyone else.


・He's a very mysterious character and that's what pulls people in!

 I think he makes the game have more tension and keep you on edge! I love Komaeda!


・He's my boyfriend



Ah, what a lucky person he is!  He got so many comments.  However, most of them are talking about his secret. 

So, I’m sorry that I cannot introduce those comments... (;´д`)

I believe Danganronpa2 will made into anime! 

Please forgive me that I didn’t introduce those comments for more people to enjoy Daganronpa2...!



Komaeda-Kun is the most mysterious character in Danganronpa2 (。-`ω-)。 

And he let us feel the gap between his first impression and actual personality the most and attracted us. 

How many times I was betrayed by him in the game?  It defied all my predictions.  However, thanks to him,

I could feel “the game is getting more interesting!” 


He is the author who made this game topper in a positive and negative way. 

Without him, this game would be tasteless... . 

Getting first place at Otaku Republic at where fans gathers from all over the world means his appeal is common in all countries (*>ω<)!


Well, I noticed there is something common among comments from voters.  Many voters explained him


“he is a very complicated character”. 


I agree (´・ω・`)。 

He seems to be loyal to only his desire at a glance but I can see his compassion toward friends behind his act. 

I wasn’t’ able to understand at all why he acted like that until I completed the game. 



We can understand him in real in the “Island Mode” which is the mode after completing the game. 

If you are at the end with him, he tells you “what he really wants”. 

That is very pure and wistful hope; you cannot imagine from the main story. 



To write this article, I read his line in the end again.  I cried at my age even though I have known it (´;ω;`)。 

His hope is modest but his ability makes it very difficult. 


I was long time before I met the character who made me hope “I want him to be happy” and “I want the day he can smile from his heart to come quicker”.  I guess no one like him at first. 

But when you know his secret identity, you would like to surround him with your affection!! 


Congratulations, Komaeda-kun!! 

Is the reason why he got the first place among 34 characters thanks to his Super High School Level Good Luck...? 


“It’s wrong!”  Pfft, pfft ( ´艸`)! 

(Be aware of spoiler; please invert to read)  Ah, Hinata-kun, please wake him up soon and tell him real happiness.



Well, the next is the character who won after fierce battle for 2nd place and graced 1st place in Danganronpa 1.


2 Ishimaru Kiyotaka





*・゜・*:.。..。.:*・゜(n‘∀‘)η゚・*:.。. .。.:*・゜・Congratulations!!!!

There are many heated comments to him too!  I will introduce some of them!



・Ishimaru is righteous, a hard worker, has extreme dedication, feels with all his being... he's what we shall all strive to be!


・He's an inspiration for me!! His love for hard work and his passion is so amazing!! I'd do anything to be like him!

  Also how much he cares for his school mates and his love (platonic or not) for Oowada is so cute I can't handle it aaaah!



He and the character of 3rd place were neck and neck the whole time (*´・∀・)(・∀・`*)! 

He gained popularity along with the anime by seeing number of items and ranking at Otaku Republic!  

He had less appeared compared with main characters but your passion for him brought him up to the 2nd place (人´∀`).☆.。.:*・!  He cried and goggle-box more than anyone among all characters in 1 and 2! 



The academy was surrounded by ineffable tension and anxiety after students started killing each other. 

However, he kept to be “pure and honest”.  Conversation among him, Owada Mondo and Fujisaki Chihiro made me feel “peaceful daily life” and that put a smile back on my face a little・+(*゜∀゜*)+・! 


Ah, why did he... .  (´;ω;`)  (Be aware of spoiler; please invert to read)  Different from Komaeda-kun, we cannot see his smile again.  I’m very sad about it.


I guess not a few people think his character is stifling.  He might be far less than doing great in the story. 

But we know he is loved from all over the world through this vote! 

He is easily move to tears, goggle-box, loyal and companionate than anyone. 

His smile inspires many people across borders!  Congratulation on the 2nd place!!!!。* ゚ + 。・゚・。・ヽ(*´∀`)ノ


Well, the 3rd place is him.  The difference of votes obtained is only 2!  It was a heated battle until the end!


3 Togami Byakuya




*・゜・*:.。..。.:*・゜(n‘∀‘)η゚・*:.。. .。.:*・゜・Congratulations!!!!

Ah, I’m sorry that there are very few comments that I can introduce since most of them tell about his secret more than Komaeda-kun...Σ(`д´/;)/



・Togami's rich.


・I enjoy Togami's characters xD


・He's so cute! I love his arrogant personality.



“Cool!”, “nice!” and “Cute” were written in most of comments!  I agree! 

His appeal is coolness and smartness and so called “tsundere”; he became kind gradually! 



When I played 1, I hardly like him at the first as well as Komadeda-kun...(。-`ω-)。 

However, as the story develops, he changes. 

The change was not so big but his impression was changed from “cynic” to “clumsy” gradually! 

When I noticed, I liked him who I didn’t like that muchΣ(`∀´ノ)!



He occupied the 2nd place at first but Ishimaru-kun won at the last... (´;ω;`)。 

Who imagined this vote embody his character “not follow through at the very end” as Monokuma said...!! 

That is Togami-kun!“Hey Naegi, explain.” (Be aware of spoiler; please invert to read)  I want see the scene he appears in 2 soon!  He is cooler than nothing in the scene!


Above is 1st to 3rd places.  All places are occupied by male charactersΣ(´Д`lll)! 

Voters for female characters can’t stand it!  So, I counted votes for girls!


Danganronpa female character popularity ranking!


1 Enoshima Junko


2 Fukawa Touko


3 Nanami Chiaki




1st place is of course our Junko-chan+。:.゚ヽ(*´∀`)ノ゚:.。+゚! 

As may be expected of her!  I cannot introduce any comments to her because all of them are big spoiler.+(´^ω^`)+.! 

I’m in a crisis!  But most of comments are longer than Komaeda-kun +(´^ω^`)+.!! 

How frustrating!!  (Be aware of spoiler; please invert to read) As may be expected of final boss!



Fukawa-chan in the 2nd place became more popular along with anime as well as Ishimaru-kun

She will be appear in “Zettai Zetsubou Shoujo - Dangan Ronpa Another Episode” which depicts the story between 1 and 2.  (Be aware of spoiler; please invert to read)  Genocide will appear.  I’m waiting announcement of details...!



The 3rd place is Nanami-chan who appeared from 2!  She won 1st place at the official web site. 

So, when the anime of 2 started, she will become more popularヾ('∀`=ヽ)※.;,゜☆! 

I cannot wait 2 is made into anime...!  (Be aware of spoiler; please invert to read)  But if anime start, she will... (´^ω^`)



As a conclusion, Komaeda-kun won the first place of the first popularity vote+。:.゚ヽ(*´∀`)ノ゚:.。+! 

Can he win the first place again at the next vote?!  When 2 will be made into anime?! 

And when can I get a raise?!.+(´^ω^`)+.!



Thank you very much for the voters!  I root for Danganronpa with you continuously!!

Pfft, pfft ( ´艸`)!
