Video Review: Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony

Rise and shine, indeed. I did a lot of that over the weekend, almost at noon each day since this game kept me up until 6:00am at one point (as I didn't want to stop playing until the trial had ended, and some of these last over four hours). Show More Summary
