** On that topic, one of Junko's poses has her play with une of her ponytails with an annoyed face. [[spoiler:After all, she's not Junko but someone posing as her -- and as such not used to have such long hair]].
** Kyoko's inquiry to Monokuma at the end of Chapter 2: «What have you done with my body?» [[spoiler:She, much like the near rest of her classmates, [[LaserGuidedAmnesia is missing a full year's worth of memories]], and has reasonably grown quite a bit and doesn't rebember it.]]

* HandWave: The methods behind removing their memories aren't explained by Monokuma, who dismisses the question as irrelevant information. LightNovel/DanganRonpaZero helps shed some light on this, however. Junko also refuses to explain why she has a different surname from her sister.

* ThirteenIsUnlucky: The number of episodes clocks in at 13, unsurprisingly.
* TwelveEpisodeAnime: Thirteen-Episode Anime actually, as said above. While the short length may make it seem too rushed at times at the cost of character development, [[ThirteenIsUnlucky it's hard to deny that the number suits the series well]].

** Mukuro Ikusaba is a retroactive example. Sure, she's one of the people behind the killing game, but it's easy to feel bad for her after it's revealed that her own sister, whom she was slavishly devoted to, killed her and gushed about how betrayed she must have felt in her last moments. Even the other students are horrified by the cruel nature of it once they find out.
