Plot Summary


Alert symbol.png
This plot summary contains major spoilers for Danganronpa: Despair Time!
Teruko Tawaki wakes in an unfamiliar room, unsure where she is or how she got there. She hurries out and runs straight into Xander Matthews, causing his eye injury to start bleeding and knocking him unconscious. She drags him to the infirmary and tries to patch him up. The two formally introduce themselves after he comes to, learning that they are both Ultimate students from an American academy modeled after Hope's Peak.

They make their way to the screening room and find the other fourteen Ultimates lingering around the room. Teruko and Xander go around and introduce themselves to each other person. Once introductions are out of the way, the Ultimates start speculating the reason for the peculiar circumstances in which they've found themselves.

Their questions are ultimately answered when a TV-headed robot pops up at the podium and is introduced as MonoTV. MonoTV explains that the Ultimates have lost a sizable chunk of their memories, as previously determined by Rose Lacroix, and that they are all participating in a televised killing game of which the supposed "dog" serves as the host. Levi Fontana attempts to stop MonoTV by lifting the host by the neck, only to nearly be impaled by a panel of spikes popping from the ground. He manages to mostly evade the trap thanks to Teruko's reactive warning, but is left with a pair of slashes in his right shoulder. Having effectively proven a point, MonoTV bids the contestants farewell and disappears, leaving them to stew in the aftermath of the announcement.
