Danganronpa 2's Japanese Cast is an Anime Fan's Dream

    So... what is Danganronpa then?

      Visual Novel / Adventure Game hybrid series on PSP (JP) and Vita (JP, US, EU) that's basically 999 / Zero Escape combined with Phoenix Wright.

        Sounds fun, wish the article told me that. Appreciate it. :>

    Kill la Kill's Ryuko and Persona 4's Yukiko were voiced by the same person? DAH FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

      What's worse is that Tenma in School Rumble is so different compared to Kallen in Code Geass. So yeah, DAH FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU there too.

    I'm up to the first investigation and I'm almost 100% sure that the English voice of Teruteru is OneyNG of Wingardium Leviosa and Dragonzball P fame

    Monokuma & doraemon are played by the same person, hello nightmares

    It's like an Evangelion reunion.

    Tomokazu Sugita

    Ami Koshimizu

    Awesomeness
