Standard Editions

German publisher FilmConfect announced they had obtained the license to release Danganronpa: The Animation on June 8th, 2016, later releasing details of the German dub cast on July 27th, 2016. The series was released in 4 volumes in separate Blu-Ray and DVD releases, with each volume spanning 3-4 episodes and featuring German and Japanese audio. The fourth and final volume was the subject of heavy delays due to a legal dispute[8] between FilmConfect and Franciska Friede, who voiced Kyoko Kirigiri. As a result, Kyoko's lines were re-dubbed by Johanna Dost[9].
