SAME HERE, I was so excited when I heard the news. I didn't know you were a fan of / had played the games! (Though on second thought seems kind of obvious since they're pretty well known?!) I'd love it if they did SDR2 as well, definitely. It's my favourite of the two.
Haha yeah, I didn't think anyone among my friends list would know/like the series since I thought it was pretty minor, but that turns out to not be the case! *dances around you* I guess since Battle Royale is my favorite movie of all time and Dangan reminds me of that a great deal, it was pretty natural to be drawn to it lol
It's not the case at all! I know quite a few people who are into it; I guess the fandom increased in size especially after the advent of the English LP of the game which brought it a lot of exposure for non Japanese-speakers. I got into DR since I've liked games in the puzzle/mystery genre like 999/Layton/AA, and DR brings that plus things like shooting arguments!! Haha, fun.
