Battle Royale

Synopsis: Forty-two students, three days, one deserted Island: welcome to Battle Royale. A group of ninth-grade students from a Japanese high school have been forced by legislation to compete in a Battle Royale. The students are each given a bag with a randomly selected weapon and a few rations of food and water and sent off to kill each other in a no-holds-barred (with a few minor rules) game to the death, which means that the students have three days to kill each other until one survives--or they all die. The movie focuses on a few of the students and how they cope. Some decide to play the game like the psychotic Kiriyama or the sexual Mitsuko, while others like the heroes of the movie--Shuya, Noriko, and Kawada--are trying to find a way to get off the Island without violence. However, as the numbers dwell down lower and lower on an hourly basis, is there any way for Shuya and his classmates to survive?

The Correct Way to Fight

in Battle Royale

By the BR Law Promotion Committee

Hello to everyone in Shiroiwa

Junior High School, 9th Grade Class B.

Everyone, say hello!

You are the lucky class chosen

for this year's Battle Royale!

- Congratulations!

- Thank you!

Now l'm going to explain the rules.

Listen carefully,

then fight correctly and with energy.

You have all been brought

to this uninhabited island.

lt's about 10km in diameter, but we

evacuated everyone, so it's deserted.

Fujiyoshi, l said no whispering!

All right, move, move.

Sorry, it's against the rules

for me to kill, isn't it?

Girl #18 Fujiyoshi - dead


- Asshole!

- Nobu!



Right! Back to the video!

This island has been divided

into all these little areas.

Your teacher will make announcements

at 12:
00 and 6:00 am and pm.

Four times a day!

These will tell you which areas are going

to be dangerous and from what time.

lf you are in one of the areas, move!

You want to know why?

That's where these necklaces

we have you wearing come into it!

They are completely

water and shock proof...

And there's no way to get them off.

This sensor monitors your pulse,

telling us exactly where you are

and what you're doing.

lf you're still in a danger area

when the time runs out

or are doing something naughty,

we will send our own signal to you!

The necklace will sound an alarm

and then... boom!

lt will explode!

Trying to force it offwill also make

it explode. Don't even try it, OK?

You assholes!

- Shut up!

- We can't hear the video.

Cut it out, Nobu!

Cut it out! Quiet!

There's no helping you, is there...?

- Better run, guys.

- What is this?!

Help me!

- Shuya!

- Nobu!


Hey, Shuya, do you

have a crush on anyone right now?
