In the future, the Japanese government captures a class of ninth-grade students and forces them to kill one another under the revolutionary "Battle Royale" act.


  • Tatsuya Fujiwara portrays the character Shuya Nanahara in Battle Royale, a student forced to participate in a deadly government-sanctioned game.

  • Tarô Yamamoto plays the character Shôgo Kawada in Battle Royale, who becomes a mentor to the other students.


In the conclusion of Battle Royale, amidst the chaos and bloodshed, only a few students remain alive. Shuya and Noriko, the main protagonists, manage to escape the island with the help of a sympathetic teacher. They become fugitives, determined to expose the government's cruel program. The film ends with a poignant revelation about the true nature of the Battle Royale, leaving the audience with a sense of unease and contemplation about the dark consequences of an authoritarian society.
