Battle Royale (Tokyopop)

 BARJ   (Tokyopop, 2003-2006)

™ and © 2000 Koushun Takami/Masayuki Taguchi
Black and white series; read right to left.

A cross between Survivor, Lord of the Flies, and The Most Dangerous Game, this brutal saga depicts how demented adults force a class of ninth graders to kill or be killed on a remote island. In this perverse “Program,” the clock starts ticking as each student has three days to become King of the Hill and endures broken friendships, deception, and betrayal.

Originally published as a novel in 1999, this story was reincarnated as a manga and cult movie. Now, the comic has hit Western audiences like a bullet to the head. Unabashedly, it revels in sudden impacts, exit wounds, and sadomasochistic cruelty that far surpass any Western rival. It’s as entrancing as watching a slow–motion multi–vehicle car wreck.
