Super Danganronpa Another 2 ~ The Moon of Hope and Sun of Despair ~, more known as simply Super Danganronpa Another 2 or SDRA2, is an on-going fan game created by the Korean game developer LINUJ (린유즈). It is a sequel to his previous game Danganronpa Another ~ Another Despair Academy ~. The game currently has four playable chapters and a prologue.

There are also two Youtube channels who are progressing the series along with LINUJ. The first is Johnny Youngster who is subbing the original version. The second is OfficialSDRA2 EngDub who is preparing an English dub for the game.

Tropes in Super Danganronpa Another 2 include:

  • And Now for Someone Completely Different: During chapter four, control shifts to Hashimoto just before the body discovery of that chapter. Control shifts back to Sora at the start of the second half of the trial.
  • Black Comedy: The Void Theater Segments, where the currently dead members of Void chat in the forms they ended up dying in. So far, we have:
    • Chapter 2: Hajime lamenting his betrayal of the other students, only for the viewer to insult him in his new doll form. The scene ends with a pissed off Hajime cursing Mikado.
    • Chapter 3: Emma, who is now a pile of flesh that Hajime describes as coming from a B movie, attempting to "catch up" with Hajime. The scene ends with her chasing Hajime while flirting/threatening to rip open his doll fabric and "reveal his true self."
  • Call-Back: There are a lot of similarities between this series and SuperDanganRonpa2
    • Yuki meeting an unconscious Sora on a sunny beach, who has no memory of their talent or how they got there, is similar to how Nagito first met Hajime.

    • The story also takes place in a deserted island similar to Jabberwock Island.
    • Hibiki and Kanade's dynamic functions alot like Hiyoko and Mikan respectively. Hibiki is presented as bratty, agitated and meanspirited especially towards Kanade who is more submissive and apologizes for everything. This even extends to Chapter 3 where the bratty girl becomes a 'victim' to the submissive girl's dark side.
    • A dinner party is held in the first chapter as a way to liven the spirits of the students.
    • While the circumstances are different, the fourth chapters of both this game and its prequel both had someone lose a hand due to trying to fire a jammed gun.
  • Cool Boat: The students live and sleep in a cruise ship when they're not exploring the island.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Both the murders and the executions in this fan game are quite brutal, with some of them being even more brutal than the deaths seen in the canon Danganronpa installments.
  • Everyone Is a Suspect: After the first trial, the students are unable to trust each other with the fact that any three of them could be members of Void and could kill them without hesitation.
  • Evil vs. Evil: Instead of one, there are two masterminds involved in the killing game. The first involves the mastermind controlling Monocrow and the second is Mikado, the ringleader behind Void.
  • Fanservice: In a rare instance for a Danganronpa series, there is a scene where Sora, Iroha, and Yoruko are locked in the bathhouse... while the boys are using it.
    • Not to mention that Yuri walks right into the changing room after the girls have been kicked out. He's completely naked.
  • Hope Spot: One is presented during the third and fourth executions:
    • In Hibiki and Kanade's execution, there is a key that one of them can supposedly use to escape. Hibiki is eventually able to grab it and tries to use it to unlock the shackle around her neck. It instead triggers some sort of mechanism in the shackle that decapitates her.
    • In Nikei's execution, he escapes the "press conference" through an emergency exit. He keeps running from a crew of Monocrow's chasing him, until he finds himself on a rooftop with a helicopter flying nearby. With no other way to go, he tries to jump to the helicopter. However, in the heat of the moment, he makes the mistake of trying to grab the ladder with the hand he had just lost a few moments ago, causing him to fall.
  • Inverted Trope: The third chapter of this game inverts the usual formula of the Chapter 3 murders in Danganronpa games, by having one victim and two killers.
  • Jidai Geki: The island featured in Chapter 2 has a traditional Japanese theme.
  • Mythology Gag: During Chapter 2's Climax Reasoning portion, there is a slide that features two wigs modeled after Makoto Naegi and Ibuki Mioda.
  • The Power of Friendship / Wrong Genre Savvy: In Chapter 2, Shinji explains to the group that he intends to be friends with everyone in hopes that those who are secretly Void members will join forces with them and turn against Mikado.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: A common trait featured among the members of Void sans Mikado is that their eyes turn a bloody shade of red.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Yoruko is the emotional, temperamental red to her friend Sora's stoic, blunt blue.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Yuki and his friendship with Shinji.
  • Standard Evil Organization Squad: The terrorist group known as Void is featured in this killing game with Mikado as their leader.
  • Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome: Rei Mekaru, a survivor from the previous game, was burned without a trace by Mikado. Possibly not.
  • Wild Teen Party: The first chapter features the students engaging in a dinner party to raise their spirits. Unfortunately, someone brought in alcohol, which resulted in many of the students getting drunk. The first murder revolves around said party.
