Zettai Kibō Birthday (絶対希望バースデー) is the ending theme for Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School - Despair Arc and a character song for Nagito Komaeda, performed by Nagito's voice actor Megumi Ogata.

It was released on August 3rd, 2016 as an A-side single of the same name along with Zansakura -zanka- and two off-vocal versions of both songs.


Background

The song seems to be about the birth of absolute hope and Nagito meeting someone "he was born to meet" in the middle of the night at school's campus, though it seems to be more about Nagito's feelings and thoughts than any actual real events. The situation is very sexual, which is made even more clear by the Japanese wording and has been pointed out by Ogata.[1]

According to Ogata, Zettai Kibō Birthday is how Nagito feels outside and Zansakura -zanka- is how he feels on the inside.[2]
