In the Danganronpa watch order, the first anime you need to watch is Danganronpa: The Animation. It is the very beginning of the story that sets in Hope’s Peak Academy.

If you haven’t played any games related to this anime, that’s fine too. Just go on with this anime, and you’ll be able to enjoy it.

Danganronpa 3: Future Arc (2016)

After you’re done with the first anime, the next mission is to explore this twelve-episode anime titled “Danganranpa 3: Future Arc.”

Unlike the first anime, I liked this better, and it covers most of the issues gamers faced while watching the first one.

So, from our Danganronpa watch order, we recommend this title to be checked out right after the first one.

Danganronpa 3: Despair Arc (2016)

Yeah, you’ve heard that right. Despair Arc mostly features the backstories of characters, and it sure is a surprise to the fans.

However, once you’re done watching the second anime (Future Arc), we suppose you need to jump right into the Despair arc to experience a part of despairs that the characters portray.

Danganronpa 3: Hope Arc (2016)

Compared to the previous parts, this part has some amazing scenes which even gamers who played Danganronpa would like and appreciate. And the animation gets better and better with each part.

If you’ve made it until the Despair Arc, then the anime wants to show you a glint of hope with the Hope arc. In our Danganronpa watch order, we recommend you to watch hope arc once you’re done with the third anime.

Danganronpa 2.5: Nagito Komaeda Sekai no Hakaimono (2017)

Danganronpa 2.5 Nagito Komaeda Sekai no Hakaimono- danganronpa watch order

I have no idea what the title is, at least that’s what I would like to say but it would be awkward to do that after watching the whole series. Even though it is an OVA, you mustn’t think about skipping it.

It’s more like a clear conclusion you’ll get after finishing the four arcs of the anime. So, make sure to watch this OVA and do that after you’re done with the above four arcs.

If you’re willing to get a whole new experience, then you should check out the games and watch this anime accordingly. Here’s a quick guide of Danganronpa watch order that includes both anime and games.

Watch Order for Anime and Games!
Danganronpa: The Animation or Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc game

Danganronpa 3: Despair Arc

Should You Watch Danganronpa Anime?

Absolutely Yes! It might be a contradictive opinion but I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. It was intense and anxious all the time making us wonder what’ll happen next. So, it’ll definitely be a good experience and you need to watch it for its stunning animation.

In any way, we would suggest you follow the watch order comprising both the games and anime. If you can’t afford to play the game, then you can simply watch the gameplays on Youtube.
