A group of 15 elite high school students are gathered at a very special, high class high school. To graduate from this high school essentially means you'll succeed in life, but graduating is very difficult. The school is presided over by a bear called Monokuma, and he explains to them that their graduation hinges around committing a murder. The only way to graduate is to kill one of your classmates and get away with it. If the other classmates discover the identity of the killer, the killer is the only one executed. However, if they fail to catch the killer, only the killer graduates and the others are annihilated. Which of the 15 will survive the bloodbath to come?Written by
The blood in the anime is pink due to the somewhat iconic status of the color choice in the game. This was originally to bypass Japanese censorship laws that would have heavily restricted the game's sales (equivalent to an ESRB rating of AO: "Adults Only," which prevents the game from being sold in stores) if the blood had been realistically red.

In the scrolling text of the end credits, there are 8-bit avatars of each of the 15 students. As the show progresses, anyone who has ended up dead up to the end of that episode will have a red X over their avatar, and the character will show up alongside Naegi in the photo backdrop behind the credits.

I don't know or care what the tween "critics" say about this anime, I'm glad I watched on pure recommendation and it was absolutely worth it. The end may have hit me a bit personally and I found myself unintentionally crying. (Dealing with severe depression, it put the hope/despair into a wonderful light and the writers should be praised for putting it in perspective.)
It's pretty obvious it will differ from the game, so that argument is just laughable. The point is, I never played the games until I watched the anime and I'm sure that was exactly the point. It did seem a bit rushed, which is why I played the games after. And it sure didn't sour me from doing so.
The Japanese cast is incredible! With many popular seiyuu for nostalgia and some newer ones to fully appreciate.
Overall, being new to the series this was the best place to start. The animation wasn't golden, though I found that's hardly a problem if the story holds up as great as this did.
