I can snicker at that now that the trauma is slightly healed, but at the time I had on that exact face.
Well, guys, that's it. I used my talent as a Super High School Level Speedreader to finish before the paywall hit and I think I can summarize my experience now.
A quite amazing WHAT, at that. Wasn't it?
It's no time to slack off, though, you still have to read what has been traslated of the sequel~ <3
Quite the amazing WHAT at that indeed.
Upupupupu, Kaneda-san, it's almost as if you want my despair to continue.... <3
Not to mention the AU sidestory that explores what could have been if events in DR1 had gone slightly differently. (They brought in a different author for that one, but it's still very much worth reading.) Major spoilers for DR1, of course.
Also, apparently there's a Dangan Ronpa manga being translated on Tumblr as well. Not a good substitute for the game or LP itself, apparently, but they explore certain things that were neglected in the game proper.
EDIT: I am so happy that even DK is starting to join the Upupu Club. That makes, what, four of us on Broken Forum that use that laugh now? Upupupupupu <3
I imprint on everything I read waaaaay too easily XD. I think I have quite a few slips in my LPs where I end up sneaking in stuff like 'and then X decided to go home' or 'We got them all' without even meaning to. In a Dangan Ronpa context, that should probably worry me.
I wish I could upupu without my alignment cockblocking me. :(
Wait what. A DR manga? How come I didn't know of this?
holy shit DK I need to read your LPs one of these days xD
I'm pretty sure I've been Chaotic evil since I starting reading Zafehouse: Diaries, so I should be fine.
I might have to pick anime back up when that hits, though...
I don't do it all the time, I hasten to add. Just occassional little slips into references, but arund 50% of the time it's just my memory works based on quotes and nothing intentional. Like the stuff about iceberg lettuce. That's what I carry with me now.
Then upupu for this Chaotic good bastard over here too, will you.
It might be the fact that I'm terribly sleepy, but I find the idea of you carrying an iceberg shaped lettuce (or viceversa) right now hilarious. Also, I'll go to sleep before we get to further derailing. Have fun with the sequel!
Upupupupu! I will~
DR2 prelimenary thoughts: EVERYTHING IS BIGGER. Mostly the chests and protag-kun's hair spike. And a certain someone.
Oh, and another thing.
I need to sleep before this gets any weirder.
By any chance, is there an upupu.wav?
Not that I know of, sadly. :( orenronen's posted quite a few voice acting segments for Monobear though, so I can't imagine there wouldn't be a soundfile of Monobear upupu-ing on Tindeck somewhere.
Finally caught up to everyone! I think I like Nidai, Sonia, Peko and Not-Naegi best. Which probably guarantees they're all doomed.
Now I'm curious, DK- how exactly did it go different in Easten Europe?
The quick version is that Western Europe had the free cities, which provided easy access to capital without needing to turn the peasantry into serfs and rely on oppression. The basic difference goes a bit further than that, as free peasants and free cities at the same time weren't present in all Western European nations, but at worst it was a mixture of the capital/oppression mechanic in play - Pre-revolutionary France for instance. The slightly longer version incorperates the fact that only in the Catholic areas of influence in the statebuilding process did you have the church oppossing and thereby weakening the centralized ruler, which wasn't part of the Orthodox doctrine. Because the rulers were essentially under attack from two fronts to give out right, a liberalizing process rather than a conservatizing one was naturally in the works because the cheapest way to pay for getting in taxes and manpower and not get excommunicated was rights. In Easterm Europe the screw just tended to get tightened more and more because bleeding people was the only way to raise money for defense and the a ruler generally prefers power over giving our rights if they have the strength.
Divergent cases are Poland and Hungary who presented patrimonial states with a constitutional, not absolutist regimes, but the explanation put forth there is that the agrarian nobility were stronger than the ruler and concerned themselves first and foremost with their own power, which lead to Poland getting disintegrated entirely by 1794 because repeatedly the Sejim only took care of their vested interested instead of not getting their nation ploughed o bits by te neighbours.
Yeaaaah, definitely a possibility here.
