This guide attempts to be as spoiler-free as possible, with each chapter split into three parts: Daily Life, in which Makoto observes his surroundings and bonds with his fellow students; Deadly Life, in which Makoto investigates a murder; and Class Trial, in which the class determines the culprit of the murder. All necessary steps and clues required to advance the story are provided in the Daily and Deadly Life sections. In Class Trial sections, use your mouse to hover over whichever clue you desire to advance the trial. Most clues are hidden in order to protect against spoilers, as deducing mysteries and coming to surprising conclusions is a great part of the enjoyment in Danganronpa.
To begin your journey through despair, proceed to the prologue.
