The Danganronpa series touches on issues of sexuality and gender, with gender explored in the original Danganronpa and with a bisexual character featured in Danganronpa 2. Representation of gender is not ideal, however, with respondents to the Queer Representation (2016) survey angry at how Chihiro Fujisaki is represented in the first title, quoting it as being part of the common anime trope of 'cross-dressing in a way that reads really really trans but actually isn't'. When it is discovered that Chihiro—who had been referred to with she/her pronouns through the game—actually has a penis (as part of examining their corpse while investigating their murder), everybody begins to referring to them using he/him pronouns.
