The bear lays down the school rules: the only way out of Hope's Peak is to not only murder another student . . . but get away with it, as every murder is followed by a tribunal where the surviving students cross-examine each other! * Inspired by the video game series for PSP, released through NIS America. * Based on the anime TV show, released in 2015 through Funimation.

But the evil paws of Monokuma, the villainous bear that holds them captive, are stretched around them . . . one light, one dark, signifying that at this school there's only room for two kinds of students: those found innocent-and those found guilty! * Based on the anime TV show, released in 2015 through Funimation. * Inspired by the video game series from NIS America and now on Steam.
