Will there be an anime that could pull off a Battle Royale-esque story perfectly?
>>
>>135830036
No because "Battle Royale-esque" stories as a genre are pretty much inherently shit; it's to be expected, especially when the primary motivation is to just copy Battle Royale to whatever extent.
Even Battle Royale, which has an excuse to be like Battle Royale, couldn't even avoid the shittyness that comes with being like Battle Royale.

Danganronpa did it fine

That The Guardian quote is damn blatantly insulting. The movie (and manga) is shit without plot

>>135830036

BTOOM! anime
>>
>>135830710
Exactly this. It's all sort of mildly entertaining, but they're all just the same sort of thing. If someone is going to succeed at it, it's definitely not going to be anime and it won't bear much similarity to existing franchise.

I think there was an anime close to it

Well, I believe the (pretty good) manga battle royale can't and will never have a decent anime adaptation.
I mean, it's too dark, too sexual, too bloody, to pass even with censorship, and the drawing style is too old school to be correctly reproduced today.

Battle Royale, as in the movie, the book and then the manga in the order I experienced them, was a huge part of my teens, I fucking loved it.

Even though it seems a little thin on the ground however many years later, I'd still love to see an anime made of it.

Hell, as bad as it would be, it would still be better than the 70% or so shit that fills up any given season these days.
>>
It was a goofy ride, I enjoyed it. Fuck the haters.
>>
>>135835047
Shogo was a fucking bro, at least in the book. Don´t know about the manga.
>>
>>135835749
Well, he didn't got much development.
>>
>>135836174
Doesn´t change the fact that he was a bro. He kicked some serious ass without being an edgelord and he was one of the few "good" characters in the book.
>>
Fuck Tokyopop.
>>
>>135836768
what
>>
>>135837384
This is from the only English translation of the manga. They hired some capeshit writer to rewrite everything and, as you can tell, he fucked everything up.
>>
>>135835416

>>135837652
That's a very manly ninth grader.
>>
>>135837714
He's one year older
Had to repeat the year cause he was the winner of the previous battle royale, but the injuries made him lose an year. Talk about shit luck. Spoiler for actual big fucking spoiler
>>
Battle Royale is the definition of edgy shit for teenagers.
>>
>>135836768
>>135837586
Wait... that isn't a joke translation?
>>
>>135837586
He did it on purpose too
>'"It's a good story that Takami is telling", Giffen said. "What I do is go in and make bad scenes that much worse. I loved the movie of Battle Royale, and also love the manga. I just wanted to do it right. I wanted to do justice to it, and I knew I couldn't get away with doing a straight translation, because it would be horrifyingly bad."'
>>
>>135833516
Fuuuuck I totally forgot how much of a bro basketball guy was. Battle Royale is totally my favorite manga but it's been like 10 years since I read it.
>>
>>135838142
See >>135838162
They intended for this to be completely serious dialogue. Also, they arbitrarily made it into a game show, which just confused things.
>>
>>135834875
Kiriyama's magical coat that never leave his back was the most funny thing in this entire series
>>
>>135838288
It was a game show in the movie and book as well.

Was the one girl with the cyanide in the lighthouse really a religious nut or was that added in "just because" as well?

Not him but have you actually read the novel? Because I have.

>>135838688
It was all being shown so that the people of the country would become paranoid of each other and making a rebellion impossible.
>>
>>135838838
The only thing I remember being shown was the "winner", not the battle itself.
>>
>>135838838
>>135838898
In the novel only the winner is shown, to spread paranoia, but in the english manga it's a reality show that people watch for entertainment, like in The Hunger Games
>>
>>135838898
This. Novel only mentioned a news report with results of the Program, showing winner and talking about causes of death for rest of the people.
>>
>>135839057
>in the english manga it's a reality show that people watch for entertainment
Which makes fuck all sense. If that shit was broadcast like reality tv, meaning they'd be under constant visual surveillance, Nimura's secret plans to fuck up the game would've died right in their infancy together with all conspirators. He caught the game masters by surprise precisely because they had only locations and sound to work with.
>>
>>135839518
But Nimura's secret plan did not was not carried out with sound, it was even made a plot point that they could not talk to each other while working on it.
>>
>>135839615
Reading comprehension. What you're saying doesn't contradict what the other Anon said. The BR program itself could only work with locations and sound. Because of this, the plan worked because the BR Program didn't have visuals of what was going on and thus couldn't see their plan.
>>
>>135838254
Best character.
>>
>>135833463
>directed by Tarantino
This can only be a horrible flick.
>>
>>135838486
You can feel despair slowly crawling in his eyes.
He's honestly pretty strong, but Kiriyama is a monster after all.
>>
>>135840029
That's the point, anon. They didn't figure it out, because they only had Nimura's location and whatever sounds he made. If the game masters had cameras everywhere to broadcast and observe what happens, Nimura's secrecy would've been completely futile. But that wasn't the case. Therefore, the manga's english translation creates a gaping plot whole with the claim the BR program is set up as some sort of reality tv entertainment.
>>
>>135840322
I noticed my mistake to late, however we must remember one thing about the translation. This >>135838162


But there was satellite view of the whole thing
>>
>>135840369
You can only see so much with a satellite. Not like they have drones flying around.
>>
>>135840471
They saw enough to figure out that two bodies were missing
>>
>>135840300

This got really weird. See, in the novel and the movie, the big tragedy is that Hiroyuki is trying to find the girl he has a crush on. (Who, incidentally, is NOT his super-hot childhood friend.)

She shoots him by accident, and he has just enough time to tell her: "I love you...Hurk-!" before he dies.

In the manga, he actually meets up with her, and he meets Kiriyama. AND THEN THEY HAVE A KUNG-FU DUEL. Immediately after that this escalates to a fight with actual chi powers. It was incredibly out-of-genre, but so heartfelt it was great.
>>
>>135840369
I'm glad I read the manga's German edition which doesn't have those issues and left the story as it was. Which is to say, there's no reality tv broadcast.

And a bunch of satellite pictures taken to investigate if the bodies are where they're supposed to be isn't quite the same as live footage from a thousand different angles presented to a million watchful eyes.
>>
>>135840787
Maybe in a alternative world they use satellite vidoe for their live shows

I don't know

Fuck you.
>>135840733
I remember that he was looking for two girls in the manga.
>>
ok ok manga movie etc

Is the book any good? my gf gifted it to me years ago and I didnt read it
>>
>>135840871
>Fuck you.
Rude.

I'd say fuck Keith Giffen and his shit translation.
>>
>>135840969
Why haven't you still read a book your gf got you indulging in your weeb interests?
Yes, it's pretty good.
At least the italian translation was good, I don't know if they messed something up in the english one.
>>
>>135841147
The English translation was fine, I didn't notice anything out of place about it.
>>
>>135841110
Keith Giffen?

The man who wrote 52, Justice League 3000, Annihilation and Justice League International

That Keith Giffen ?
>>
>>135839615
That was because they had microphones in their collars that were registering everything that was being said.
>>
>>135841254
>, I didn't notice anything out of place about it.
Anon did you even look at this panel? >>135836768
>>
>>135841343
He's the one who butchered the BR manga, yes
>>
I liked this guy's art but he hasn't done anything I else big ever since BR.
>>
>>135841343
Yup, they got him to translate it so it would sell more due to his name
>>
>>135841385
The novel, you fucking retard.
>>
>>135841385
He's talking about the novel, not the manga. Chances are they didn't hire another capeshitter to translate the novel.
>>
>>135840871
I think first he looked for a friend who liked him,then he left her to look for his crush
