Danganronpa Another Episode drops in June in the west

It's still weird to me that something called Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls is now part of the zeitgeist, popular enough for Spike Chunsoft and NIS to localize and promote like it was almost a AAA game, but here we are in ...   read

Review: Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star
