Spike Chunsoft’s Danganronpa series mainly follows the psychotic antics of a murderous bear as he tries to get high school kids to kill each other. Would anyone really want to see what that looks like in real life?

Well, apparently someone did, because the Tokyo Anime Center in the Akihabara UDX building in Tokyo is currently holding an art exhibit showcasing the game series, as well as pieces from the currently-airing Danganronpa 3 anime (which airs as two separate series: Despair and Future). There, you can take pictures with the show’s mascot/villain, Monokuma, and pretend like you already got killed off by putting your mug in a portrait frame for the deceased (seen above).

A timeline at the beginning of the exhibit gives an overview of the events within the franchise–even the ones that occur in light novels and manga.

Both the inside and outside of the exhibit are decorated with art of the characters from the franchise.

In addition to this photo-taking spot, the exhibit also has cosplay items on display. These official outfits are on sale now in Japan from cosplay-maker Cospatio.

If one Monokuma wasn’t enough, a giggling one sits right by the cosplay.

The gallery features some of the art featured in the Danganronpa,Danganronpa 2, and Ultra Despair Girls games.

If you have 300 yen on you, you can even make your own Danganronpa 3 name stickers. For the sticker background, you can choose one portrait of a major character from either Danganronpa 3 anime, and can also choose whether you want that character in traditional anime form or as pixel art:

Of course, I made my own and put it on the sticker board.

Some fans didn’t put their name, though–instead, they made the characters say funny things.

Juzo: Munakata~~~!
Chisa: Kyosuke~♪
Kyosuke: Yukizome-! Sakakura-!

Fans can also show off their creativity by leaving messages on note papers. Can you find the message I wrote?

The exhibit also gave a look at some of the anime and games’ goods:
