Danganronpa: Academy of Hope and High School Students of Despair - The Manga is a supplementary manga adaption of the game, told mostly from the perspectives of the victims and culprits of their respective chapter. The story was written and drawn by Touya Hajime with Spike Chunsoft providing the original concept.


The manga follows the original story generally, except that instead of witnessing the events from Makoto Naegi's viewpoint, the manga will switch between the viewpoints of the victim, then the culprit of each chapter. For example, in Chapter 1, the events are explored from Sayaka Maizono's perspective, which later switches to Leon Kuwata's. This pattern is consistent through the manga.


The manga is split up into four volumes.

Volume 1

Volume 2

Volume 3

Volume 4
