Welcome to the High School of Despair Jul 4, 2013 Makoto Naegi, an average student, enrols at the prestigious Kibōgamine Academy for talented students. However, the moment Makoto steps inside the school grounds, he falls unconscious and wakes up in a dorm room littered with security cameras and steel plates. Following a note's instruction to assemble in the gym, Makoto finds 14 other unique students in a similar situation, including a school idol from his old middle school, Sayaka Maizono. It is at this point that the self-proclaimed principal, a stuffed bear named Monokuma, appears, announcing that the students will be staying in the school for the rest of their lives, with only those who kill another student being able to leave. The students spend the next few days searching the school grounds in order to try and find an alternative exit. When Monokuma notices noone has any particular motive to kill anyone, he shows each student a personalised DVD motivating them to escape.

Kill Free or Live Hard: Exposition Jul 11, 2013 As Makoto tries to grow accustomed to the situation, he learns from Monokuma about the faulty door on his shower room. Afterwards, Sayaka comes to Makoto's room, saying she is afraid that someone may be after her, so Makoto offers to switch rooms with her to put her at ease. The next day, however, Makoto discovers his room in a mess and is horrified to find Sayaka lying dead in the shower room, having been stabbed in the stomach with a kitchen knife. As Makoto becomes angered by this tragic turn of events, Monokuma explains that one of the students is responsible for her murder and they must judge for themselves who the killer is in a "class trial". If the guilty culprit is successfully deduced, that person will be executed, but if they accuse the wrong person, then the culprit will get to escape the academy whilst everyone else will be put to death.

Kill Free or Live Hard: Student Trial Jul 18, 2013 As the trial begins, swimmer Aoi Asahina testifies that she and martial artist Sakura Oogami witnessed Sayaka enter the kitchen, during which one of the kitchen knives, which was used as the murder weapon, was stolen. Meanwhile, Kyouko proves Makoto's innocence by pointing out that, since his shower room didn't have a lock, he wouldn't have needed to take apart the doorknob to enter it. After wondering how the culprit entered the room in the first place, Kyouko presents evidence which reveals Sayaka had purposely invited someone into the room, meaning that Sayaka had actually intended to murder someone and pin the crime on Makoto, only for her target to fight back and kill her instead. Remembering the message written in blood, Makoto deduces that "11037" is actually an upside down spelling of "LEON" and accuses baseball star Leon Kuwata of the crime.

Weekly Shounen Despair Magazine: Exposition Jul 25, 2013 Following the class trial, Monokuma grants access to the second floor of the academy, containing a library and a swimming pool with gender-divided changing rooms. Whilst searching the library, the group find a broken laptop and a letter that indicates Hope's Peak Academy has actually been shut down for years, along with a storeroom filled with confidential files. As the pool changing rooms require ElectroIDs to unlock, Monokuma introduces a school rule that students are forbidden from exchanging their ElectroIDs. Later, Makoto comes across writer Touko Fukawa, who appears to have a thing for the cold-hearted affluent progeny, Byakuya Togami, before winding up as a witness to a sauna endurance battle between gangster Mondo Oowada and moral compass Kiyotaka Ishimaru, who end up bonding with each other.

Weekly Shounen Despair Magazine: Not Normal Arc Aug 1, 2013 As the trial gets underway, Byakuya states that Touko is the culprit as she has dissociative identity disorder, her other personality being none other than Genocider Sho. Surely enough, as Touko faints, her personality switches to that of Genocider who, despite casually admitting she is a genuine homicidal maniac, denies killing Chihiro as she always uses scissors in all of her serial killings. Being the only other one who knew of Genocider's crimes, Byakuya is suspected of the crime, curiously not denying it. However, after Makoto deduces Chihiro was actually killed in the boy's changing room, with Kyouko subsequently revealing Chihiro was, in fact, a cross-dressing boy, Byakuya admits he is not the killer and had only modified the crime scene to make the game more interesting.

Neon Genesis Super Vortex Redux! Rise, Armored Hero! (Not) Normal Arc Aug 8, 2013 After the others investigate the newly opened third floor, containing a rec room, art room and a physics lab, Monokuma announces his next incentive; a cash reward of 100 billion yen to whoever graduates, though noone seems to fall for it. Afterwards, the gang investigate the bath locker rooms after Aoi mentions seeing Chihiro's ghost the previous night, which turns out to be a laptop left behind by Chihiro before his death, containing an A.I. program called Alter Ego, who offers to help decrypt some files left on the laptop. As Kiyotaka, who has been mortified since Mondo's execution, asks Alter Ego if he blames him for Chihiro's death, he imitates Mondo to give him words of encouragement, which seems to encourage him a bit too much. Alter Ego then shows a curious photo of Leon, Chihiro and Mondo hanging together, which could not have possibly been taking during the time they've known each other.

Neon Genesis Galactic Legend Redux! Rise, Armored Hero! Abnormal Life Arc Aug 15, 2013 Hifumi's dying words leave most of students convinced that the culprit is fortune teller Yasuhiro Hagakure, who is found by Kyouko near the pool stuck inside the aforementioned 'Justice Robo' costume. Yasuhiro, however, denies committing any murders, claiming he was knocked out after being called by a note, which had subsequently gone missing. After Makoto and Kyouko finish their investigation of the crime scene, the class trial begins, where Makoto starts vouching for Yasuhiro's innocence, using evidence to point out he couldn't have designed the outfit, let alone carry the corpses whilst wearing it. After Kyouko asks the court to consider the two murders as seperate incidents, Makoto deduces that Hifumi had only faked his death from before, with Kyouko's evidence revealing Hifumi was the one who killed Kiyotaka, moving his body to the art supply closet where he was killed himself.

Episode 2 Jul 17, 2016 Monokuma reveals the rules of his new "Monokuma Hunter" game, in which each of the participants carry a wristband which, following a time limit, will put everyone to sleep for a short period of time. During this time, an unknown traitor will awaken and kill one of the other participants, meaning the participants must try to determine who the true attacker is and kill them before they kill everyone else. Additionally, if anyone attempts to remove the wristband or performs a personalised forbidden action, then they will be injected with a deadly poison. Therapist Miaya Gekkogahara attempts to hack Monokuma with her Usami program, but Monokuma hacks her right back and remodels Usami into Monomi. When boxer Juzo Sakakura starts acting violent against animator Ryota Mitarai, farmer Daisaku Bandai ends up triggering his forbidden action, witnessing violence by participants, and is killed by the poison in his wristband. As Juzo and student council president Kyosuke Munakata accuse Makoto of being the traitor and attempt to kill him, wrestler Great Gozu stands against them and escapes with Makoto, Aoi, and Miaya. However, after everyone falls asleep following the first time limit, Makoto wakes up to discover Aoi impaled with a knife.
