YMMV / Danganronpa Abridged Thing

Go To

  • Angst? What Angst?: Unlike in canon, Naegi doesn't react much to the knowledge that Maizono was planning to kill someone and frame him for it, even compared to learning about her doing so under the pretext of a "sugoi booty call" in his room. It's somewhat justified, though, considering that most things are played much less seriously in this Abridged Series, and Naegi's friendship with Maizono largely goes only as far as him being the only one who can tolerate her.
    • He's also a lot less affected by the deaths of the students in general, though it's justified for the same reasons as above.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: The last clip from Danganronpa 3 Bits and Pieces. showing Chiaki getting Impaled with Extreme Prejudice and then falling on a bed of spikes with Sonic the Hedgehog sound effects and Game Over music.
  • Epileptic Trees: Faulerro is Monokuma! He created the show to give us hope to make us feel despair when it was never completed!
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment:
    • During a Christmas video, Ed and Naegi get into a debate about their respective series and whose is better - Ed argues his has higher quality, while Naegi points out his brings in more views and that Ed's is in "indefinite hiatus", while his is going strong. Cut to a few months later where Faulerro announces he is taking a hiatus from abridging in general.
    • In Episode 6, Celestia tells Kirigiri that she'll show her a good time if she ever ends up in Hell, to which Kirigiri says she has no intention of going there. Celestia replies "I hardly think you have a choice in the matter." In Danganronpa 3, Kirigiri apparently dies. Subverted as of Side: Hope, which reveals she survived.
    • In DRAT to the Future, Naegi telling Yukizome she is "an actual ray of sunshine" and she makes him feel like there is actually some hope left became this when it was revealed that Yukizome is actually a Remnant of Despair.

  • Harsher in Hindsight: Hinata's comments on hoping his story doesn't turn out to be "a complete rush job" come to mind when looking at how the 77th class' story was handled after the airing of Side:Despair—something Faulerro even recognized and changed accordingly on the original "Double DRAT" video.
    Yeah, about that, Hinata...
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Episode 5 begins with Monokuma using a voice different from his usual one (meant as a jab against Brian Beacock's performance as the character) while the characters reacts in disgust. The anime dub after the games have many fans and critics agreeing that Greg Ayres's Monokuma was inferior to Beacock's; ironically enough, Monokuma's normal voice in this series is much closer to Ayres's interpretation of the character.
    • Sayaka being depicted as a "Blue-haired weeaboo" becomes this after New Danganronpa V3, where Dorothy Elias Fahn, Sayaka's voice in the first game, also voiced Tsumugi Shirogane.
    • Touko calming the killer must be "cis white male scum" is this in light of Tenko Chabashira in V3 insisting the killer must be male.
    • Monokuma uses the phrase "byeonara" in Episode 4, which later became a catchphrase for Angie Yonaga in V3.
  • The Un-Twist: Celestia turns out to be a real demon. Considering their title was "Super Duper High School Hellspawn" from the get-go, this was not a far-fetched idea.

How well does it match the trope?
