About the Author

Koushun Takami's first novel, Battle Royale, was a finalist for the Kadokawa Mystery Novel Prize and was then published in 1999. Takami went on to pen the manga of the same name, collaborating with artist Masayuki Taguchi for over 8 volumes. The book and manga have been adapted into a movie by director Kinji Fukasaku which has spawned a legion of fans.

Series Description

Inthe future, random Jr. High School classes are chosen to compete in a game called Battle Royale. The rules: only one student can survive after 3 days on an island or else they all perish. Weapons are handed out and each student is sent out into the field alone and unprepared for the horror that awaits them. The classmates turn upon themselves in a battle for survival, treaties are made and broken, and former friends become foes as the relentless countdown continues. Amid the betrayals and rising body count, two classmates confess their love for each other and swear to survive this deadly game together.

Based on the live-action feature film that became a cause celebre and polarized much of Japan.
