Danganronpa by Spike Chunsoft

Danganronpa: The Animation Volume 1 by Spike Chunsoft, Dave Steward (Illustrations)

Each year, the elite Hope’s Peak Academy selects only the most gifted and talented students to enroll…plus one ordinary student, chosen by lottery.
Makoto Naegi was that lucky person—or so he thought! When he shows up for class, he finds the elite students are a bizarre cast of oddballs under the ruthless authority of a robot teddy bear principal, Monokuma. 

The bear lays down the school rules: the only way out of Hope’s Peak is to not only murder another student…but get away with it, as every murder is followed by a tribunal where the surviving students cross-examine each other!

Inspired by the Danganronpa videogame series and based on the anime of the same name, the Danganropa manga is a quirky, fun, weird, and dynamic take on the high school Battle Royale genre.

Like announced in the summary, it's inspired of a battle Royale with a twisted wicked crazy teddy bear. It remind me of the bear from "Bleach".
Other references, a bit of  "The Hunger Games" as well as "D-Gray Man" in the illustrations.

Personally, I've liked the bloody plot and the sweetness and naive aspect of the hero. This first volume made me curious enough to make me wait the sequel to know who will die next! LOL!

Cool one!
