Danganronpa: The Animation (Vol 1)

I had never heard of this before but was very excited to read it after seeing it. Monokuma, an evil robot teddy bear principal is probably the "Ultimate Weirdest Villain" ever! LOL. The plot of being locked up and each one gets killed has been done before (and I love these types of stories!), however, Danganronpa brings a crazy psycho, a bunch of kids who must kill each other, and a court case trial together after each death. The deaths are weird; as are the motley collection of students. The book concentrates a lot on character and obviously we're going to get to know those who stick around a lot better than the ones who die early, but also the court cases bring out character issues. I need to keep reading this series. So far, I'm hooked!
