Liste des personnages de Battle Royale

Ce qui suit est une liste de personnages qui apparaissent dans les versions roman, manga et film de Battle Royale.

Caractères primaires (modifier)
Shuya Nanahara (modifier)

Le garçon n ° 15, Shuya Nanahara (原 秋, Nanahara Shūya) a été témoin de nombreux événements troublants tout au long de sa vie. Son père a été tué par le gouvernement pour avoir lutté contre le régime et sa mère est décédée alors qu'il était en troisième année. Lorsque le reste de sa famille l'a rejeté, Shuya a été placé dans un orphelinat. Il est prêt à faire confiance aux autres, ne voulant pas participer au programme Battle Royale. Il tente plusieurs fois de rallier ses camarades étudiants pour tenter de s'échapper, mais échoue. En conséquence, il échappe de peu à la mort aux mains de ses camarades de classe à plusieurs reprises. Shuya est une "rock star" autoproclamée, qui écoute et joue de la musique rock 'n' roll malgré l'interdiction du genre. L'artiste préféré de Shuya est Bruce Springsteen. Après la mort de son meilleur ami Yoshitoki, il s’engage à protéger le béguin pour Yoshitoki, Noriko, à sa place. Shuya survit au concours et s'échappe. Dans la version manga, il émigre aux États-Unis.

Dans le manga anglais, il porte le surnom de "Shu".

Dans le roman original, Shuya développe une colère et se sent impitoyable quand il tue des soldats sur le bateau. Dans le manga, Masayuki Taguchi a modifié la personnalité de Shuya afin que les personnages puissent se différencier, car il pensait que la sérialisation du manga exige plus de cet aspect que d'autres supports tels que le roman et le film. Taguchi a décrit Shuya comme développant une personnalité orientée vers la justice comme "le personnage d'un manga shonen". Alors que Taguchi développait la caractéristique pacifiste de Shuya, il décida de changer la fin pour permettre à Shuya d'épargner les soldats dans le bateau. Taguchi a eu le sentiment que Shuya l'avait entraîné dans l'histoire (1).

Dans le film, beaucoup de caractéristiques de Shuya sont hautement élaguées, telles que son amour pour Bruce Springsteen et sa musique rock 'n' roll. Cependant, dans le film, il reste un individu extrêmement attentionné qui souhaite que ses camarades de classe cessent leurs violences les uns envers les autres. En fin de compte, après avoir tué l'administrateur de l'actuelle Battle Royale, Kitano, Noriko et lui deviennent des fugitifs et sont recherchés par le gouvernement.

Dans la suite du film, Shuya devient un terroriste, dirigeant une armée de jeunes ayant perdu un membre de leur famille ou ayant survécu à une bataille royale, et déclarant la guerre à tous les adultes soutenant et appliquant le Battle Royale Act. Cela oblige le gouvernement à adopter une nouvelle loi sur les droits de l'homme, appelée BR II, qui envoie une seule classe de 9e année à une base terroriste afin de mettre fin aux menaces, le terroriste ciblé étant Shuya.

Les hommes de Shuya épargnent quelques-uns de ceux qui ont été envoyés à sa base, tuant beaucoup d'étudiants et gagnant l'ire des étudiants qui étaient leurs amis. Shuya prend les soldats restants en captivité et tente sans cesse de les persuader de rejoindre sa cause, bien qu'il soit souvent considéré avec mépris, car les quelques étudiants restants de la classe refusent de lui pardonner la mort de leurs camarades.

Finalement, un étudiant nommé Takuma Aoi s'allie au terroriste après que Shuya ait offensé les États-Unis avec une vidéo encourageant les jeunes de tous les pays bombardés par les bombardements à se soulever et à se rebeller, ce qui contraint le gouvernement américain à bombarder la base. . Shuya et Aoi repoussent les soldats envoyés pour prendre d'assaut la base, juste assez longtemps pour qu'eux-mêmes et leurs alliés puissent s'échapper pendant que la base est réduite en cendres.

Shuya et Aoi retrouvent leurs alliés en Afghanistan et se séparent. Dans les films, Shuya est décrit par Tatsuya Fujiwara.

Victimes: Tatsumichi Oki (accident); Nombre non spécifié de soldats (roman); Kitano (film); Kazuo Kiriyama (manga)

Noriko Nakagawa (modifier)

La fille n ° 15, Noriko Nakagawa (中 川 典 子, Nakagawa Noriko), est le personnage féminin principal de l'histoire et le premier compagnon de Shuya, ainsi que, finalement, son intérêt amoureux. C'est une fille calme et réservée que Shuya considère comme mignonne. Dans le roman et le manga, elle a reçu une balle dans la jambe pour avoir tenté d'aider Yoshitoki Kuninobu; dans le film, elle est touchée au bras, bien que cette blessure soit un accident. Dans les deux versions, elle tombe malade et est traitée pour sa fièvre par Shogo et Shuya dans une pharmacie. Bien qu'elle ne s'en rende pas compte, elle parvient à garder Shuya sain d'esprit et elle est la seule autre personne à survivre à la partie, à part Shuya. Bien qu'innocente au cœur, elle est profondément philosophique et inspire l'espoir à Shuya et à Shogo, et tout ce qu'elle dit est vrai dans le contexte plus large du roman. C’est elle qui tue Kazuo Kiriyama, avec la seule et unique balle qu’elle a tirée au cours du jeu (il ya une certaine confusion quant à cette scène du roman, car Shogo tire alors sur Kiriyama et lui attribue le mérite de l’assassinat; consensus général c'est qu'il essaie d'épargner à Noriko la culpabilité à vie d'avoir tué quelqu'un). Dans la version anglaise du manga, après le match, sa famille l'aurait rejetée (son frère ayant été enlevé par la police pour que sa famille l'aide à la chercher), elle a donc émigré aux États-Unis. avec Shuya. Dans le film, l’enseignant Kitano s’intéresse à Noriko, lui souhaitant de remporter le match et dévoilant son image de vainqueur lorsqu’elle, Nanahara et Kawada s’introduiront à l’école. Il va même dans l'île pour la chercher, lui donnant un parapluie sous la pluie. Shuya a commenté qu'elle avait écrit les meilleures compositions en classe de littérature; en conséquence, lorsqu'elle parle avec son cœur, ses mots sont décrits comme étant "comme de la poésie". Tout comme Simon dans Le seigneur des mouches, on pense que Noriko représente une voix extérieure au roman, telle que la voix de l'auteur ou du public. (Citation nécessaire)

Aki Maeda décrit Noriko dans les adaptations du film.

Victimes: Kazuo Kiriyama (roman), Nombre non spécifié de soldats (roman)

Shogo Kawada (modifier)

Le garçon n ° 5, Shogo Kawada (章 吾, Kawada Shōgo), décrit comme un solitaire au sein de la classe, est un élève transféré. Il est placé en classe B environ deux mois avant le début du programme. Il est le gagnant du programme actuel (prétendant tuer Shuya et Noriko) et d'un programme précédent auquel il avait participé environ trois ans auparavant. Il s'allie avec Shuya et Noriko, leur disant qu'il connaît un moyen de s'évader de l'île et de tout le programme Battle Royale. Noriko et Shuya doutent souvent de sa crédibilité, mais ces doutes se révèlent sans fondement, car Shogo révèle qu'il a délibérément été transféré à l'école dans l'espoir d'être dans la classe choisie. Il est en mission pour venger la mort de sa petite amie, décédée lors du dernier programme dans lequel ils ont joué. Avec Noriko et Shuya, ils ont vaincu Kiriyama. Il aide à renverser le programme, aidant Shuya et Noriko à s'échapper, mais il succombe à ses blessures et meurt. Dans toutes les versions, il est le dernier participant à mourir.

Dans le roman, Shogo est décrit comme ayant "le corps d'un champion de boxe de poids moyen". Dans le manga, il est également très musclé. Il est également le seul étudiant à avoir les poils du visage. Shogo a une cicatrice distincte sous son œil gauche, causée par une blessure au couteau lorsqu’il a remporté le programme, l’année précédente. Dans le roman, Shuya a également noté avoir vu Shogo porter de multiples cicatrices de coups de feu sur le torse depuis le moment où ils allaient changer de classe. Shogo et Akira sont les seuls étudiants qui fument.

Dans les flashbacks du manga, son père était médecin et dirigeait un petit hôpital local mal équipé. Son père était un travailleur indépendant et Shogo lui donnait parfois un coup de main. C'est ainsi qu'il a pu traiter les blessures de Noriko avec une telle expertise. Son père a été tué par le gouvernement lorsqu'il a tenté de protester contre l'entrée de Shogo dans le programme. Shogo avait aussi les cheveux longs dans les flashbacks, par opposition au présent quand il les avait complètement bourdonnés.

Koushun Takami décrit Kawada comme un "personnage de Young Champion" (la version manga de Battle Royale a été publiée en série dans Young Champion) et rappelle qu'une personne lui a dit que la version de Shogo Kawada de Masayuki Taguchi "ressemblait à Bancho Kiyohara", faisant référence à la Kazuhiro "Bancho" Kiyohara, joueur de baseball Yomiuri Giants. Les lecteurs de Young Champion ont classé Kawada en premier dans un sondage sur la popularité des personnages. Taguchi a estimé que le choix du moment avait contribué au classement car une histoire centrée sur Kawada était apparue au moment du scrutin. Takami a estimé que Kawada aurait obtenu la première place même si une histoire centrée sur Kawada n'avait pas paru sur les mêmes pages que le sondage. (1)

Shogo est décrit par Tarō Yamamoto dans l'adaptation du film.

Victimes: Kyoichi Motobuchi; Kinpatsu Sakamochi (roman); Kaori Minami (manga), Kazuo Kiriyama (film); Yonemi Kamon (manga)

Tué par: Kazuo Kiriyama, Nature (après-match)

Kazuo Kiriyama (modifier)

Le garçon n ° 6, Kazuo Kiriyama (和, Kiriyama Kazuo) est le joueur qui tue le plus grand nombre d’étudiants dans le match.

Dans le roman et le manga, Kiriyama est un sociopathe doté d'un esprit génial et incapable de ressentir des émotions, en raison de lésions cérébrales provoquées par un accident de voiture dans son enfance (in utero dans le roman) qui a conduit à une lobotomie partielle. Il est svelte et élégant, avec des cheveux lissés dans le dos (qui a initialement été décoré par son membre du gang, Mitsuru Numai, qui idolâtre Kazuo), dont il ne change jamais le style car il ne peut pas être dérangé. Il venait d'une famille riche, mais dans le profil du manga et du roman, il est suggéré qu'il est un enfant illégitime. Kiriyama a une grande compréhension intuitive de tout, ce qui lui permet non seulement de faire un travail scolaire remarquable, mais également de maîtriser des compétences qui prennent du temps, telles que la peinture, le violon et divers arts martiaux, et ce, à un rythme rapide. Cependant, en raison de son état sans émotion, il a tendance à les mettre de côté après avoir atteint la maîtrise, puis à perdre tout intérêt pour eux quelques instants plus tard. Cette compréhension intuitive rapide a permis à Kazuo d’être le premier étudiant à maîtriser les mécanismes du programme. Dans le manga, il a également arraché le globe oculaire d'un prof de gym abusif et l'a écrasé avec celui-ci toujours connecté par le nerf optique, histoire de voir la couleur du liquide qu'il contient. Il était également le seul étudiant de sexe masculin à ne pas tomber sous le charme de Mitsuko Souma. Il a également été démontré que Kiriyama avait une grande tolérance à la douleur, notamment lorsque, après avoir tué Mitsuko, il lui a ouvert le bras et qu'il enregistre les muscles qui contrôlent son index en arrière de manière à ramener en permanence ledit doigt dans une position lui permettant de feu à un rythme beaucoup plus rapide.

Pendant qu'il était à l'école, Kiriyama est devenu le chef de son propre gang, composé de Mitsuru Numai, de Sho Tsukioka, d'Hiroshi Kuronaga et de Ryuhei Sasagawa. Malgré leur loyauté, il n’a aucun attachement à eux et les assassine tous pendant le programme. Kiriyama participe au programme non par nécessité (comme pour la plupart des étudiants), mais uniquement parce qu'il n'avait rien de mieux à faire et réussit à tuer un grand nombre de ses camarades de classe (quatorze au total, quinze si l'on compte Shogo Kawada, le plus grand nombre de morts). de tous les étudiants), pour finalement être tué à la fin. Dans le roman, Noriko tire une fois sur Kiriyama dans la tête, puis Shogo le tire à nouveau dans la tête. à ce moment-là, Shogo lui dit qu'il a tué Kiriyama pour épargner à Noriko la culpabilité du meurtre. Dans le manga, Shuya finit par tuer Kiriyama en lui tirant une balle dans la nuque, bien que Kiriyama ait pu regagner ses émotions d'un tir précédent, et peu de temps avant sa mort, il dit à Shuya qu'il peut ressentir à nouveau.

Dans le film, Kiriyama, qui ne fait pas partie de la classe 3-B de la Shiroiwa Junior High School, rejoint volontairement le programme Battle Royale pour ses propres loisirs. Contrairement à ses homologues du roman et du manga, il fait preuve d'émotion et prend plaisir à tuer des étudiants. Kiriyama est également décrit comme muet et ne parle jamais au cours du film. Dans cette adaptation, les membres de la "famille Kiriyama" du roman et du manga, emmenés par Numai, pensèrent que Kiriyama était dans la ligue avec Kitano, et tentèrent de le faire taire pour l'avouer, mais ils furent tués par lui. Shogo le tue finalement en tirant et en faisant exploser son collier.

Kiriyama est décrit par Masanobu Andō dans l'adaptation cinématographique.

Mitsuko Souma (modifier)
  Mitsuko Souma telle qu'elle apparaît dans le manga.

La fille n ° 11, Mitsuko Souma (馬 Mits子, Sōma Mitsuko) est belle et séduisante à l'extérieur, mais à l'intérieur, elle est une coquille creuse. Elle a été endommagée de façon permanente après avoir subi des violences physiques et sexuelles de la part de son beau-père. On dit d'elle qu'elle est l'une des plus belles filles de l'école avec son visage angélique, son corps galbé et son sourire séduisant, que le roman appelle son "sourire d'ange déchu". Elle utilise sa sexualité à son avantage tout au long de la série. Semblable à Kazuo Kiriyama, Mitsuko souffre d'un traumatisme durant son enfance. Elle est le chef de son propre gang, composé de Hirono Shimizu et de Yoshimi Yahagi. Elle réussit à tuer un total de six (sept dans le roman), devenant ainsi la deuxième adversaire la plus dangereuse du programme, avant d'être finalement tuée par Kazuo Kiriyama.

Dans le roman, Mitsuko est maltraitée par plusieurs personnes au cours de son enfance. Quand elle avait neuf ans, sa mère l'a emmenée dans un vieil immeuble dans un quartier délabré. Dans le bâtiment, trois hommes ont payé sa mère pour la violer en groupe et ont filmé les événements. Lorsque Mitsuko a raconté à une enseignante ce qui s'était passé, au lieu d'obtenir l'aide qu'elle cherchait, elle l'a violée dans la salle de lecture après l'école. L'ami de Mitsuko à l'époque avait été témoin du viol et avait répandu une rumeur autour de l'école qui avait entraîné le renvoi de l'enseignant. La mère de Mitsuko a essayé de la reprendre pour qu'elle soit violée pour de l'argent, mais Mitsuko a tué sa mère par accident. Elle a nettoyé la scène pour faire croire à un braquage, puis s'est assise sur une balançoire dans le parc. Elle a ensuite été emmenée chez des parents éloignés où leur enfant a harcelé Mitsuko. Lorsque l'enfant a été hospitalisé après être tombé de son toit, la mère a accusé à tort Mitsuko de l'avoir poussé, mais Mitsuko a été défendu par le père qui a commencé à en profiter peu de temps après. Être violée à plusieurs reprises dans sa jeunesse a transformé Mitsuko en une jeune femme manipulatrice au psychisme d'un enfant tordu. Dans le roman, elle a réussi à tuer sept étudiants. La dernière (Kayoko Kotohiki), elle tue quelques secondes avant que Mitsuko ne soit tué par Kiriyama.

Dans le manga, il a été révélé que, dans son enfance, le père biologique de Mitsuko avait divorcé de son épouse et avait finalement fui le pays, dans l'intention de la protéger ainsi que du jeune Mitsuko du gouvernement. Cela a laissé le jeune Mitsuko complètement navré. Avant de partir, son père lui a donné une bague Magical Emily car il savait qu'elle voulait en avoir une et qu'elle aurait également quelque chose à se souvenir de lui. Mitsuko chérirait plus tard l’Anneau et l’utiliserait comme source de confort, même pendant le Programme. Quelque temps plus tard, quand Mitsuko avait neuf ans, elle rencontra ensuite son beau-père qui finit par lui donner une poupée. C'était la seule fois où il avait vraiment montré sa gentillesse avec la promesse de devenir une famille. Peu de temps après, les choses ont changé et il a alors commencé à soumettre Mitsuko et sa mère à toutes les formes de maltraitance. Avec le temps, les dégâts étaient trop importants pour la mère de Mitsuko et elle aussi a commencé à maltraiter sa propre jeune fille, vraisemblablement en l'agressant physiquement, tandis que son beau-père a également soumis le jeune Mitsuko à des agressions sexuelles. Finalement, les horribles abus dont Mitsuko avait été victime la blessèrent à vie. Au moment où elle est devenue adolescente, Mitsuko est devenue une jeune femme manipulatrice avec un sens tordu du bien et du mal. Elle a également pris l'habitude de séduire régulièrement les hommes, de les droguer avant d'avoir des rapports sexuels avec eux, puis de les voler. Elle a également passé un accord avec un criminel local pour faire tuer son beau-père, mais celui-ci a fini par tuer le beau-père et la mère de Mitsuko avant que Mitsuko appelle la police au sujet du criminel sans nom. Dans le manga anglais, elle est surnommée "Hardcore Souma", probablement à cause de sa beauté. Elle utilise une grande partie de sa sexualité dans le manga et séduit souvent les hommes avant d’avoir des relations sexuelles avec eux. Elle finit par les droguer et leur voler leur argent ou tout simplement leur faire du mal, ce qu’elle a commencé à faire pendant son mandat au programme. Pendant le programme, Mitsuko devient également une machine à tuer qui tue ses camarades de classe une à une alors qu'elle cherche à gagner le jeu, y compris son ancien "ami", Yoshimi Yahagi. Avant le programme, ses camarades de classe craignaient Mitsuko et dirigeait un gang de filles. Son arme désignée est une faucille ou un kama qu’elle utilise avec une habileté incroyablement meurtrière bien qu’elle soit vue en utilisant une arme à feu avec une grande habileté. Elle utilise également sa beauté et son corps pour séduire ses camarades de classe afin de les prendre au dépourvu.

En raison de ses abus émotionnels, elle a une idée tordue du sexe, pensant que c'est la solution à tout, ce qui l'a amenée à violer Yuichiro Takiguchi, blessé, pensant que cela le rassurerait. Elle s'est énervée quand il a dit que ça lui faisait mal et, pensant qu'il la rejetait, elle l'a tué. Elle a ensuite rencontré Kazuo Kiriyama, une autre étudiante qui, de la même manière que Mitsuko, était responsable de la majorité des décès survenus au cours du programme et presque immédiatement, les deux se sont livrés à une fusillade. Après avoir reçu une balle dans le bras droit, Mitsuko a ensuite tenté de le séduire en se déshabillant complètement, une tactique qu’elle avait utilisée contre d’autres hommes par le passé. Cependant, en raison de son comportement sociopathe, Kiriyama n’a pas craqué pour son geste et a blessé Mitsuko en la tirant régulièrement dans des parties aléatoires de son corps, ce qui l’a laissée dans l’agonie et lui a rappelé divers moments de sa vie. Sa personnalité enfantine prenant le contrôle, Mitsuko a commencé à appeler son père tout en répétant "Outil magique". Kiriyama a ensuite mis fin à la vie de Mitsuko en lui tirant une balle dans le visage qui lui a détruit le nez et qui a finalement abouti à sa mort quelques secondes plus tard, ses dernières pensées étant composées de son appel pour son père biologique et qu'il lui avait promis de ne pas la quitter.

Dans la version longue du film, un retour en arrière décrivait une jeune Mitsuko rentrant de l'école. À la maison, elle a trouvé sa mère très ivre et un homme inconnu qui avait payé Mme Souma pour agresser sa fille. Mitsuko, en état de légitime défense, le poussa rapidement dans les escaliers – l'acte lui brisa le cou et le tua instantanément.

Dans les versions longue et standard du film, elle est davantage décrite comme ayant été un exclu socialement maladroit, anxieusement vain et un solitaire sans amis qui, après avoir fourni une arme mortelle et une très chanceuse rencontre avec un camarade de classe amer, s'est effondré. au désespoir, à la folie et à l’homicidalité gratuite et hautement potentielle sous la pression du Programme et de ses propres troubles mentaux que l’intimé hyper-criminel, intimidé par la peur de l’école du roman ou du manga (dans le bus, une écolière fort et répétée, mais pas malicieusement, perturbe sa sieste – Mitsuko dit et ne fait rien; une scène représentant un autre personnage féminin harcelé par trois camarades de classe à l'école secondaire Shiroiwa ne considère pas Souma comme une agressrice; elle est également terrorisée à l'arme blanche par une autre étudiante, ayant "toujours énervée (l'étudiante)". Les camarades de classe du film l'appellent toujours "Mitsuko", son prénom, et jamais "Souma", sa famille japonaise. e "prénom" nom; cela reflète probablement une attitude de manque de respect et de licenciement à l’échelle de la classe). Kazuo Kiriyama la tire dans une séquence particulièrement violente, elle meurt complètement seule en tant que "perdante" – qu'elle "ne voulait tout simplement plus être …". Ses six assassinats au total en font de loin le plus meurtrier des camarades de classe permanents en 3-B. Selon la rumeur, elle aurait couché avec quelques gars à l'école et volé le petit ami de Hirono Shimizu; dans le manga et le film, Mitsuko est la dernière fille à mourir.

Elle est jouée par Ko Shibasaki dans le film, son rôle "d'évasion". Shibasaki est ensuite devenu une actrice majeure du cinéma et de la télévision, une star de la J-pop et un mannequin au Japon et dans toute l'Asie de l'Est.

Victimes: Megumi Eto, Takako Chigusa, Tadakatsu Hatagami, Yuichiro Takiguchi; Kayoko Kotohiki (roman et film); Hirono Shimizu (film); Yoji Kuramoto, Yoshimi Yahagi (roman et manga)

Hiroki Sugimura (modifier)

Garçon # 11 Hiroki Sugimura (杉 村 弘, Sugimura Hiroki) passe la majeure partie du programme à la recherche de Kayoko Kotohiki, la fille qu'il aime, et de son meilleur ami, Takako Chigusa.

Le roman décrit Hiroki comme "réservé" et comme ayant "un corps grand et élancé". Hiroki "projetait la dureté" parce qu'il avait étudié les arts martiaux. Hiroki a un comportement "timide" et ne socialise pas beaucoup avec les autres garçons. Le roman a déclaré que les gens qui ont commencé à "connaître (Hiroki) un peu" ont découvert que Hiroki "s'est avéré être gentil". Hiroki aime lire de la poésie chinoise. Parce que la Grande République d'Asie de l'Est considère la Chine comme «faisant partie de notre patrie», il est facile de trouver des traductions de livres chinois au Japon (2).

Dans le manga, Hiroki est réputé être le garçon le plus grand de la classe (5 "11 dans les profils manga). Il a les cheveux noirs et longs et le visage légèrement efféminé. Lui et Kiriyama se disputent trois fois (plus qu'aucun autre Kiriyama semble toujours en tête du jeu. Quand il rencontre Kiriyama pour la troisième et dernière fois, ils se livrent à un combat sanglant intense. Hiroki fait de son mieux et est capable de faire couler le sang, mais pour la plupart, Kazuo En même temps, Hiroki perd trois doigts, tous ses ongles, un œil et est frappé à plusieurs reprises. Au début, il est sauvé de la mort par Kazuo, le laissant prendre pour cible Kayoko, munie d'un fusil: lui permet de voler la mitraillette Uzi de Kazuo et de le frapper trois fois à la poitrine et une fois au bras. Hiroki et Kayoko présument tous deux qu'il est mort. Kayoko arrive pour réconforter Hiroki dans un moment affectueux, mais Kazuo se lève. tard, se souvenant qu’Oda avait un gilet pare-balles et que Kazuo l’avait pris. e il peut atteindre le pistolet, Kazuo lui tire une balle dans le ventre. Hiroki dit à Kayoko de courir, mais elle reste avec lui. Kazuo tire alors sur Kayoko à l'arrière de la tête, la tuant, et procède une seconde plus tard pour tuer Hiroki en lui tirant une balle dans le visage. Ils meurent dans les bras l'un de l'autre.

Dans les flashbacks de manga, nous voyons Hiroki être victime d'intimidation dès son plus jeune âge, ce qui explique son intérêt pour les arts martiaux. Un autre flash-back le montre tombant amoureux de la "beauté et de la grâce" de Kayoko lorsqu’elle la regardait de loin pendant ses cours de composition florale. Son professeur d’arts martiaux lui a dit: "Elle serait bonne pour vous", laissant Hiroki rouge et embarrassée.

Quand il trouve Takako, elle est proche de la mort et il la réconforte. Dans le roman et le film, Kayoko a peur et blesse fatalement Sugimura. Dans le manga, Kayoko décide de voyager avec lui. Cependant, ils sont tous deux bientôt tués par Kiriyama.

Koushun Takami, auteur du roman et co-auteur de la version manga de Battle Royale (avec Masayuki Taguchi), a déclaré que la version manga accentuait la peur de Sugimura d'être "violent" (1).

Dans l'adaptation cinématographique, Hiroki est décrit par Sousuke Takaoka.

Tué par: Kayoko Kotohiki (roman et film); Kazuo Kiriyama (manga)

Shinji Mimura (modifier)

  • Arme assignée: Beretta 92 (roman, manga et film)

Garçon n ° 19 Shinji Mimura (村, Mimura Shinji) utilise son intellect pour inventer des plans d'évacuation.

Le roman décrit Shinji comme ayant "les cheveux courts" et portant une "boucle d'oreille complexe" sur son oreille gauche. Shinji, le gardien du premier tireur de basket-ball, porte le surnom de "Troisième homme" (3). Shuya et Shinji sont devenus amis après que les deux se soient bien comportés en équipe lors de la compétition de basket de deuxième année. (2) que Shinji et Shuya avaient les mêmes compétences sportives, bien que Shinji proclame qu'il est plus doué. (4) Les notes de Shinji dans des matières autres que les mathématiques et l'anglais n'étaient "pas géniales". Au lieu de cela, Shinji a une "incroyable" étendue de connaissances du monde réel, des vues "mûres, bien au-delà de ses pairs" et une connaissance d'informations en dehors de la Grande République de l'Asie de l'Est. Le roman dit que Shinji n'est "pas arrogant" (2).

Dans le roman et le manga, son premier plan est de pirater l'ordinateur du gouvernement et de désactiver leurs colliers, puis de bombarder l'école. Il ne parvient pas à pirater l'ordinateur, car il discute de son projet avec son ami Yutaka Seto et la conversation est retransmise par son collier au professeur, qui met fin à ce projet. Shinji tente ensuite de bombarder le bâtiment où se trouve le personnel du programme, un plan qui échoue après une légère perturbation qui a entraîné la mort de Keita Iijima par Shinji. Dans la confusion qui s'ensuit, Kazuo se présente et tue Yutaka. Lorsque Kazuo pénètre dans la ferme où Shinji et Yutaka se cachaient, Shinji fait exploser la bombe qui se trouve dans la coopérative pour tenter de tuer Kazuo. Malgré l'explosion qui en a résulté, Kazuo survit et attaque Shinji. Dans une série de flashbacks, il a également été révélé que l'oncle de Shinji était un espion qui lui avait appris beaucoup de choses, y compris comment pirater des systèmes et comment fabriquer une bombe à partir d'objets dispersés autour de l'île. Son oncle est décédé plus tard, bien que Shinji le soupçonne d'avoir été assassiné par le gouvernement pour être un espion. Son profil manga indique également que bien qu'il soit sexuellement actif, Shinji a montré des traits de misogynie. Shinji considérait Takako Chigusa, Mitsuko Souma et Sakura Ogawa comme les plus jolies filles de la classe.

Dans le film, Mimura rencontre immédiatement Iijima et Yutaka. Mimura découvre que son col est très tôt inséré, alors ils complotent pour bombarder l'école. Ils ont presque réussi, mais Kiriyama découvre le groupe et tue Yutaka et Iijima. Lorsque Kiriyama tire sur lui, Mimura fait exploser la bombe du groupe, l'assassinant et aveuglant Kiriyama, catalysant involontairement les événements qui entraîneraient la mort de Kiriyama aux mains de Shogo. Il survit également beaucoup plus longtemps dans le film que dans toute autre adaptation, mourant quelques instants avant que Shogo ne tue Kiriyama à l'apogée du film.

Shinji est décrit par Takashi Tsukamoto dans l'adaptation cinématographique.

Caractères de soutien (modifier)
Étudiants masculins (modifier)
Yoshio Akamatsu (modifier)

  • Arme attribuée: Arbalète (roman, manga et film)

Le garçon n ° 1, Yoshio Akamatsu (Y, Akamatsu Yoshio) est le premier élève à quitter l'école où il est informé de toutes les versions de la série.

Yoshio Akamatsu fait partie de la classe des étudiants de troisième année du lycée fictif Shiroiwa Junior High. Yoshio est un grand garçon peu performant dans le sport. Il est souvent victime d'intimidation (3), en particulier de la part de son camarade de classe Ryuhei Sasagawa. On dit que Yoshio mesure 180 cm de hauteur dans le roman (environ 5'11 "). C'est un étudiant timide et calme, qui est souvent paranoïaque de se faire maltraiter par ses pairs. Dans le manga, un flashback de Yoshio sollicitant de l'aide On peut y voir un jeu vidéo de Shuya Nanahara, qui avait dit à Yoshio qu'il le considérait comme un ami.

Dans toutes les versions, après avoir tué la fille # 14 Mayumi Tendo, Yoshio descend une petite colline lors de sa tentative de tuer Nanahara, aveuglé par la peur de sa propre mort. Il se soulève pour trouver Kazushi Niida à proximité. Kazushi tire alors sur Yoshio avec une flèche tirée de sa propre arbalète. Le livre dit que Kazushi lui tire une balle dans la nuque après avoir paniqué. Dans le film, Kazushi tire Yoshio dans le cœur au lieu du cou après avoir paniqué. Dans le manga, l'attaque est délibérée et est menée par Kazushi Niida: quand Yoshio se réveille, il panique et cherche son arbalète. Kazushi lui tire cependant une balle dans la tête, le tuant sur le coup.

Yoshio est décrit par Shin Kusaka dans l'adaptation cinématographique.

Victimes: Mayumi Tendo

Tué par: Kazushi Niida

Keita Iijima (modifier)

Dans le roman et le manga, Keita Iijima (島 敬 太 太, Ījima Keita) est un solitaire ancien ami de Shinji Mimura. Les deux se sont disputés parce que Keita a refusé d'aider à combattre le gang de rue qui harcelait Shinji, malgré sa perte d'un pari, bien que Iijima soit également considéré comme un lâche, ce que Shinji a refusé de prendre en compte.

Sho, being skilled at stealth, devises a plan to follow Kiriyama around until Kiriyama kills everyone off, then killing Kiriyama, thus becoming the winner of the Program and getting to return home to Japan. However, Kiriyama almost immediately realizes that Sho is stalking him, and tricks Sho into lingering in a Forbidden Zone by leading him into a zone with a bathroom. Kiriyama then entered the small stall, making Sho believe that he was urinating.

After the dripping noise goes for about 5 minutes, Sho finally decides to look up. A breeze opens the door to the toilet, and Sho notices that Kiriyama had impaled a water bottle, and put it over the toilet, creating a false peeing sound. Sho then turns to see Kiriyama walking far away and before he can do anything, he realizes that Kiriyama has tricked him and led him directly into a Danger Zone which is fatal as if any of the students were to go into a Danger Zone area then their collars would explode, killing them.

She has a crush on Shuya Nanahara whom she met in elementary school in April on a rainy day while trying to organize the volleyball and little league teams in the gym. She and Haruka worked well together on the volleyball team and Yukie was the setter. She was held in high regard by most of her classmates, as both Shinji Mimura and the proud Takako Chigusa considered her to be trustworthy. She was often a better leader than the male class representative Kyoichi Motobuchi, this is shown especially in the Program.

During the game, she gathers Haruka and several other girls and hides in an abandoned lighthouse. Hiroki delivers Shuya and brings him in. Yukie admits that she is in love with him, and in the manga she kisses him. Another girl, Yuko Sakaki, is suspicious of Shuya (she witnessed Oki's accidental death and assumed Shuya meant to kill him while holding a very strong belief in the fact that Shuya is a demon). Yuko decides to poison his food, but the food meant for him is instead eaten by Yuka Nakagawa, who quickly dies. As a result, the girls quickly turn on each other and the resulting bloodbath and carnage results in Yuko being the only survivor. In the novel and manga, Yukie is gunned down by Satomi when she fires a warning shot. Yukie is the thirtieth to die. Her manga profile states that she was likely to be eliminated mid-way to late into the Program, depending on the number of allies she had.

She and the rest of her group find a lighthouse and lock themselves in. A scout discovers Yuko Sakaki . After Hiroki Sugimura delivers an injured Shuya Nanahara to the lighthouse, Yukie takes care of him and dresses his wounds; she also convinces the other girls to let him stay. When Shuya awakens, Yukie tells him who has died while he was out. Yukie mentions that Mizuho Inada, Kaori Minami, Yuichiro, Tadakatsu, and Toshinori died.
Yukie then asks about Tatsumichi Oki and Shuya tells her that it was just an accident and that he was with Shogo Kawada and Noriko Nakagawa. He also tells her of Kawada's plan to escape.

Shortly afterward, Yukie tells him that she knows everything about him and then asks if he knows what that means which he is confused by. She brushes it off and tells him that it's lunch time and she will bring him his food.
Yukie later announces to the other girls that Shuya is awake and in good condition. She tells Haruka to get Yuka from watch and she tries to calm Satomi and Yuko down as they are scared of what may happen in the days to come.
After Yuka joins the group, Yukie gathers the girls to tell them of Kawada's plan and suddenly Yuka dies from the food that was poisoned. Satomi freaks out and blames Chisato and Haruka while Yukie tries to calm everyone down. Chisato accuses Yukie of poisoning the food to run off with Shuya and she goes for her gun and is killed by Satomi. Yukie grabs her gun and shoots at Satomi, while Haruka joins in. The three girls get into a gun fight and all three fall. Satomi gets back up to finish off Yuko but decides not to and while she laments about not seeing the next day, she is shot by a dying Yukie.

Kayoko mentions she has a pet cat at home and offers to take it in, and the two form a friendship. Kayoko admitted that before she properly spoke to Hiroki she was afraid of him, because he practiced martial-arts and thought he was a bad person.

Yuko Sakaki(edit)

Girl #9 Yuko Sakaki (榊 祐子, Sakaki Yūko, ES, FR, NL) is a troubled girl with big ears, who witnesses Oki's accidental death and blames Shuya for it, often referring to him as a demon. Later, she joins up with several other girls and hides in an abandoned lighthouse. When the girls find Shuya and bring him in, she poisons his food. The food, however, is instead eaten by Yuka Nakagawa, who quickly dies. The girls soon turn on each other and kill each other in a violent gun fight. Yuko survives this confrontation.

In the novel, her alcoholic and abusive father died in the hands of a yakuza, which led her family to be able to live in peace, but the abuse still left Yuko nightmares, and left her terrified of gore and violence. In the manga, it is clear that Yuko has an extremely high paranoia level (Shuya pointed out that she was crying when everyone awakened on the island). After witnessing Mitsuru and Tadakatsu in Class 3-B fight, she refused to go to school for a while, and locked herself in her room. Her mother, Kaori Sakaki (榊 かおり, Sakaki Kaori), and father, Soichiro Sakaki (榊 宗一郎, Sakaki Sōichirō), try to comfort her, but she closes her door on her father's fingers and realizes that anyone could be violent.
In the English-language adaptation of the manga, she is a Buddhist, and sometimes saw a psychiatrist named Dr. Chiodo and a pastor named Pastor Min.

In the novel and manga, Yuko runs from Shuya. When she gets to the top of the lighthouse, her foot slips, and she falls. Shuya catches her and tries to pull her up, despite his severe injuries. Yuko realizes that Shuya is responsible for saving her life, even though he suffers agonizing pain, and this leads her to realise that he is good after all; her friends died in vain. Yuko pries her hand free from the bars, and falls to her death. Yuko dies thirty-third in the manga. Her manga profile states that she had a very high chance of suicide and was likely to be killed early on, somewhat ironically since she ranked ninth place when she died.

In the film, Yuko hears Shuya struggling with the door after he hears loud noises. Yuko opens the door and realizes she was responsible for her friends' deaths, and apologizes to Shuya (acknowledging that he is as much a victim in the game as she and her friends were) before proceeding to commit suicide by jumping off the lighthouse.

Hirono Shimizu(edit)

Girl #10 Hirono Shimizu (清水 比呂乃, Shimizu Hirono) is a rebellious girl.

In the manga and novel, she is a girl with short, spiked hair who was part of Mitsuko's gang of bad girls, which got her involved with drugs, prostitution, and larceny.

On the island, Hirono gets into a gunfight with Kaori, which Shuya bravely attempts to quell. In the novel, Hirono shoots Kaori dead and runs away. In the manga, she expresses interest in Shuya's offer to join him in finding a way out of the Program, but runs away after Kaori shoots her in the shoulder.

In the novel and manga, Hirono uses her entire water supply to treat her wounds. However, she suffers from sepsis, and becomes severely dehydrated. When she tries to get water from a well, she is attacked by Toshinori Oda. She shoots him and leaves him for dead. However, it is soon revealed that he is wearing a bulletproof vest, and gets up to attack her again. In the novel he strangles Hirono with a belt. In the manga Toshinori pushes Hirono down the well, where she drowns during a final dream in which she climbs out, her dehydration gone, and finds Shuya and company who deactivate and remove her collar and tell her there is a way to escape the game. Her body is later discovered by Hiroki Sugimura who mourns her. Her manga profile states that she had a chance of winning should Mitsuko be eliminated.

In the film, Hirono confronts Mitsuko. Hirono accuses Mitsuko of killing Megumi, Yoshimi, and Yoji, pimping Yoshimi, and stealing Hirono's boyfriend while Mitsuko had sexual intercourse with other men. Hirono then mercilessly beats Mitsuko until Mitsuko uses her stun gun to take Hirono's gun; once Mitsuko takes Hirono's gun, she fatally shoots Hirono two times in the back as Hirono runs away.

Kills: Kaori Minami (novel)

Killed by: Toshinori Oda (novel and manga); Mitsuko Souma (film)

Haruka Tanizawa(edit)

Girl #12 Haruka Tanizawa (谷沢 はるか, Tanizawa Haruka) is Yukie's best friend. The novel describes Haruka, a member of a non-distinct group of girls referred to by the novel as "the neutrals," as "exceptionally tall." She is also captain of the school volleyball team.(6)

She hides with Yukie and several other girls in an abandoned lighthouse. However, soon they turn against each other, and kill each other in a violent gun fight. Haruka does not participate until Satomi kills Yukie, and is shot several times in the side when grabbing her friend's gun. She finishes Satomi off by shooting her in the eye, while she herself lay dying. Haruka dies thirty-seconds later. In the film Haruka does not kill Satomi.

In Battle Royale: Angels' Border, Haruka is the primary focus of the first chapter. She is shown struggling with romantic feelings for Yukie, ultimately choosing to keep them hidden to the very end. After going for the fallen Yukie's pistol, she is shot and killed by Satomi.

Kills: Satomi Noda (novel and manga)

Killed by: Satomi Noda

Takako Chigusa(edit)

Girl #13 Takako Chigusa (千草 貴子, Chigusa Takako) is an athletic girl (the fastest sprinter on the track team) and the most beautiful girl in the school.

Takako is described as a little fierce- yet aristocratic-looking with upward-curved eyes, a sharp chin, a well-defined nose, a well-formed mouth and arched eyebrows. Her long hair has orange streaks running through it and she enjoys wearing jewellery such as bracelets, rings and earrings, much to the opposition of her teachers. Takako is known for being the prettiest girl in her class and is described so by several students, including Shuya Nanahara, Shinji Mimura and Kayoko Kotohiki. She is very close with Hiroki Sugimura, her only friend in the class since her best friend, a girl called Kahoru Kitazawa, goes to another school. Takako is a very gifted athlete, her 200m track record is the second best in the history of the prefecture. On the island, she is approached by Kazushi Niida, a boy she despises because of his immaturity and the fact that he spread a rumour of him going out with Takako. When she refuses to team up with him, he threatens to rape her and attacks her. She gouges out his eyes and crushes his penis and scrotum, finally killing him with her issued ice pick. In the novel, Takako then notices Mitsuko standing nearby and talks with her for a short time where the latter confesses that she was always a little envious of Takako because of her beauty and her being "a better girl". Mitsuko then shoots her three times in the back and leaves her for dead. Severely wounded, she is found by Hiroki a while later. She tells him that he has become "quite a stud." He compliments her back but as she thanks him, she dies in his arms.

In the film she is approached by Niida and attacks him after he shoots her in the face with his crossbow when Takako refuses to sleep with him, scarring her beautiful face. This a relatively easier fight than in any version as Niida merely runs away after Takako threatens him. She then pulls out her knife and briefly chases him before stabbing him in the back, the crotch, and finally in the chest, killing him. As soon as Takako gets up from Niida's corpse she sees Mitsuko pointing a gun at her and runs through the woods while Mitsuko chases her, firing four shots to her back before letting Takako run away. Takako manages to hold out until sundown before succumbing to her wounds, where Hiroki finds her, she compliments him and tells him to stay with her before she dies in his arms.

The manga version presents a significantly more violent fight on Niida's part, giving him a better chance of actually killing Takako before he dies. Niida calls Takako "Robobitch" several times during their encounter which is the name she is referred to by some students due to her cold and arrogant attitude. In the manga, after Takako kills Niida, Mitsuko is standing behind her and fatally shoots her in the back before walking away. Later, she is found by Hiroki while dying. It is hinted that Takako may have been in love with Hiroki, asking him if they could have been more than friends. When he does not respond, she realizes that he has a crush on someone else and tells him a "secret," telling him that he was her most precious friend, only to die in his arms.

Takako is played by Chiaki Kuriyama in the film. Kuriyama's character in the film Kill Bill is based on her portrayal of Takako.

Kills: Kazushi Niida

Killed by: Mitsuko Souma

Mayumi Tendo(edit)

Girl #14 Mayumi Tendo (天堂 真弓, Tendō Mayumi) is an attractive girl who is friends with Izumi Kanai and Yuki's gang. She is quickly killed by Yoshio as she exits the school. Perched on the roof, he shoots her dead. In the novel she gets an arrow to the back, while in the manga she receives an arrow through the head. In both the manga and novel Mayumi's corpse is the first object encountered by Shuya outside of the school. In the film Mayumi receives an arrow through her neck and dies shortly after she asks Shuya about the arrow.

Killed by: Yoshio Akamatsu

Yuka Nakagawa(edit)

Girl #16 Yuka Nakagawa (中川 有香, Nakagawa Yūka) is a chubby, cheerful girl who hides in an abandoned lighthouse with Yukie Utsumi, Haruka Tanizawa, Chisato Matsui, Yuko Sakaki and Satomi Noda. They then find Hiroki holding Shuya, who is injured. They take in Shuya and prepare a stew. Yuko, however, thinks Shuya intentionally killed Tatsumichi Oki, even though it was an accident. While Yuko is preparing soup for Shuya, she slips potassium cyanide into it. Yuka says that she will have a taste of the soup, and eats the poisoned food meant for Shuya, causing her to die on accident (like what happened with Shuya). This sparks a gunfight and eventual massacre between the girls in the lighthouse. Although Yuka has the same surname as Noriko, the two have no relation to one another as "Nakagawa" is a very common surname in Japan.

Killed by: Yuko Sakaki (accident)

Satomi Noda(edit)

Girl #17 Satomi Noda (野田 聡美, Noda Satomi) is a model student. Satomi wears wire-rimmed glasses which the novel says fits her "calm, intelligent face."(6)

Satomi was one of the girls who joins Yukie Utsumi and her group at the lighthouse. Her designated weapon was a Uzi submachine gun in all versions, which she uses to kill all of her friends. As soon as she left the school Satomi joined the group of girls that Yukie Utsumi put together.
In the film, Satomi moans about only living until the next day. Yukie comforts her, telling her that she will find a way out of the scenario.

After Yuko Sakaki tries to poison Shuya Nanahara, but accidentally kills Yuka Nakagawa, the girls suspect each other, thinking that one of themselves is the murderer. Satomi realizes she should kill her friends since she has the chance to and win the program. She was the first one to become panicked enough to grab her gun and points it at her friends. Satomi kills Chisato Matsui, Yukie Utsumi, and Haruka Tanizawa in all versions but the details vary.

In the novel and manga, Satomi shoots Chisato three times in the back first after she goes for Yuka's gun. Satomi claims afterwards that Chisato was guilty of poisoning Yuka and that Chisato's murder was in self-defence. Yukie rejects this, saying that Satomi killed Chisato because she just wanted to. Satomi gets ready to shoot Haruka because Haruka told Yukie to kill her. While Satomi's back is turned, Yukie points her gun at Satomi, and hesitates because she only wants to disarm her. This gives Satomi the chance to turn around and fatally shoot Yukie. Haruka dives for Yukie's gun but Satomi shoots her too. Thinking that Haruka is dead, Satomi turns to Yuko, the last girl standing. In the manga she encourages Yuko to join her, and that she will protect her. In the novel she also says that Yuko is 'different'. Haruka then uses the last of her energy to shoot Satomi in the head, killing her. In the novel, Satomi's Uzi goes off as she falls, almost tearing off Haruka's neck.

In the film, Satomi shoots Chisato dead, then ends up in a gunfight with Yukie and Haruka. Satomi successfully kills Haruka and mortally wounds Yukie, but sustains injuries herself. As in the other versions, Satomi speaks her last words, of mercy, to Yuko. However, in the film Yukie shoots Satomi dead before dying herself, not Haruka.

At three kills, Satomi has the third-highest number of victims in The Program, behind Mitsuko and Kiriyama.

Kills: Chisato Matsui, Yukie Utsumi, Haruka Tanizawa

Killed by: Haruka Tanizawa (novel and manga); Yukie Utsumi (film)

Fumiyo Fujiyoshi(edit)

  • Assigned weapon: None (killed before Program begins)

Girl #18 Fumiyo Fujiyoshi (藤吉 文世, Fujiyoshi Fumiyo) is the quiet, caring nurse's aid. She's caught whispering during the presentation, and the teacher, angered at Fumiyo disobeying him throws a knife into her forehead which kills her as a result. In the novel and manga, she is the second student to be killed, while she is the first to die in the film. She is good friends with Yukie Utsumi, and in the bus she's seen bullying with Kayoko Kotohiki. In the manga, Yutaka has a crush on her, and named Shinji's plan "Fumiyo's Revenge".

Killed by: Kinpatsu Sakamochi (novel); Kitano (film); Yonemi Kamon (manga). Fumiyo is one of the few characters to be killed by a different person in each version, though this is due to a new "teacher" in every version.

Chisato Matsui(edit)

Girl #19 Chisato Matsui (松井 知里, Matsui Chisato) is one of Yukie's friends. The novel describes Chisato, a member of a non-distinct group of girls referred to by the novel as "the neutrals," as "always quiet and withdrawn."(6) Chisato is a petite girl with long hair. She had a crush on Shinji Mimura and in the Manga, she and Yuka were apparently "Boy crazy".

Chisato was one of the girls who teamed up with Yukie Utsumi and the others at the lighthouse. She cooked the meal, along with Haruka Tanizawa, which made the others suspicious of her when Yuka Nakagawa was poisoned. When the girls all became paranoid and panicked, Satomi Noda grabbed the uzi, and when Chisato moved to get Yuka's gun, Satomi shot her three times in the back. In the manga, after Satomi begins accusing Chisato of poisoning the food, Chisato becomes increasingly paranoid, believing that everyone is going to side with Satomi. Chisato grabs Yuka's gun, thinking that the others will have to listen to her if she has it, however, when she points it at Satomi, Satomi responds by shooting Chisato in the stomach with the machine gun, killing her instantly. In the film, she also accuses Yukie of poisoning the meal in order to run off with Shuya Nanahara alone before grabbing a gun.

Killed by: Satomi Noda

Kaori Minami(edit)

Girl #20 Kaori Minami (南 佳織, Minami Kaori) is a fan of various pop idols, especially of Junya Kenzaki. She is friends with Megumi and Mizuho, although Mizuho's fantasy games annoy her. On the island, Kaori finally loses her sanity after accidentally killing a kitten, and she gets into a gunfight with Hirono. She then ends up shooting Hirono in the arm. After trying to kill Shuya, Shogo kills her by shooting her in the head with his shotgun. In the novel, Kaori is distracted by Shuya during her gunfight with Hirono, allowing Hirono to shoot her in the head.

In some of the flashbacks in the manga, she is constantly bullied by Mitsuko's gang; gang members usually steal her money. Other students label her "pizza face" to insult her due to her acne problem that she was sensitive to; during the program she goes insane because of this and often chants out the sentence, "No more pizza face!".

In the film, she says goodbye to Mizuho Inada after her name is called, promising they will still be friends. The two are later shown to have joined forces, but are seen stabbed to death next to a life preserver. The two killed each other.

Kills: Mizuho Inada (film)

Killed by: Hirono Shimizu (novel); Mizuho Inada (film); Shogo Kawada (manga). She is one of the few characters to be killed by a different person in every version of Battle Royale.

Yoshimi Yahagi(edit)

Girl #21 Yoshimi Yahagi (矢作 好美, Yahagi Yoshimi) is a rebellious girl with long, wavy hair. Yoshimi is in a relationship with Yoji Kuramoto, whom she met while watching a movie.

Yoshimi Yahagi is one of the class of third-year students at the fictional Shiroiwa Junior High School. She was a member of an all-girl gang headed by Mitsuko Souma, along with Hirono Shimizu. Yoshimi used to regularly steal from and torment her classmates. She often singled Kaori Minami out of the girls. Yoshimi is described in the novel as one of the more urban girls in Shiroiwa; she never saw a sickle before in her life.

In the manga during flashbacks, Mitsuko and her gang prostitute themselves to get money. At this point Yoshimi is a virgin and upon mentioning this, two of the male clients continue to rape her. Even Mitsuko doesn't treat her very nice and manipulates Yoshimi frequently. So when she meets Yoji by chance while watching an emotional movie to which Yoji is crying, and he treats her with care and affection, she falls for him.

In the novel and manga, Yoshimi is thrilled when she manages to meet up with Yoji, but is shocked when he attacks her. They talk briefly, and Yoji starts to realize that he could not kill Yoshimi because he loves her. Before they could do anything, Mitsuko appears and kills Yoji; in the novel, Mitsuko stabs Yoji's head with her sickle, while in the manga, she picks up Yoshimi's gun and shoots him through the head. Afterward, Yoshimi is then killed when Mitsuko shoots her in the eye. In the novel she attempts to stop Mitsuko from removing her scythe from Yoji's head and attacks her before she is in turn shot by Mitsuko. Her manga profile states she had potential for a "dark horse" win.

In the film version, Yoshimi and Yoji hang themselves rather than participate in the Program.

Masayuki Taguchi, creator of the manga version, did not model his version of Yoshimi after any particular person. Taguchi said that he listened to many women and felt that they had a "unique outlook on life." Koushun Takami, author of the original Battle Royale novel, liked how Taguchi expanded Yoshimi's backstory. Takami described the manga version of the meeting between Yoshimi and Yoji as "standing strongly on its own."(1)

Kills: herself (film)

Killed by: Mitsuko Souma (novel and manga); herself (film)

Other characters(edit)
Kinpatsu Sakamochi(edit)

In the novel version Kinpatsu Sakamochi (坂持 金発, Sakamochi Kinpatsu) is a government employee who is the administrator of the current Battle Royale program. Sakamochi briefs the students on the rules of the Program. He is a vile and sadistic man, as he kills two students for misbehavior. In the end, he was killed by Shogo Kawada. His name is a play on the character Kinpachi Sakamoto (坂本 金八 Sakamoto Kinpachi) from the Japanese TV drama San nen B-gumi Kinpachi-sensei.

Kitano(edit)

In the film version, Kitano (キタノ) is the head instructor of the program. He is less sadistic than Sakamochi and Kamon.

He leaves his initial job at Shiroiwa Junior High School after Yoshitoki stabs him. Kitano returns as the instructor of the Battle Royale program and kills both Fumiyo and Yoshitoki.

Kitano seems to have some sort of affection for Noriko, whom he considers a respectful student much unlike the rest of her class. At one point in the movie, he saves her life from Mitsuko Souma by scaring Mitsuko. Afterwards, he then gives her his umbrella telling her "not to catch a cold". After Shogo Kawada is declared the winner, Kitano orders the military to leave the island and to not bother to check for the bodies of Shuya Nanahara and Noriko. When Shogo arrives to meet Kitano, Kitano reveals that he knew Shogo had deactivated Shuya's and Noriko's collars and then threatens to kill him. Shuya and Noriko both burst into the classroom in time. Kitano then reveals a painting he had created with all the other students dead, and Noriko triumphant. He tells her that he wishes to die, and he would prefer to die with her. He then threatens the trio with a gun once more and orders them to shoot him, or he would shoot them. Shuya promptly shoots him with a machine gun; Kitano rises and fires his gun (which turns out to be a harmless water gun). Shocked by the fake gun, Shuya accidentally lets loose another volley and Kitano falls down. Kitano rises again once more to answer his cell phone. After hanging up angrily on his daughter, tossing the phone to the floor, shooting it with a real gun and then eating the last of Noriko's cookies (complimenting the cookies while doing so) Kitano dies.

In the film adaptations, Kitano is portrayed by Takeshi Kitano.

Yonemi Kamon(edit)

In the manga version, Yonemi Kamon (嘉門 米美, Kamon Yonemi) is a government employee who is the administrator of the current Battle Royale program. Kamon briefs the students on the rules of Battle Royale. He is a vile and sadistic man, as he kills two students for misbehaving, and then orders the rest of the class to write lines, each stating that they will kill a certain student's name, all the while making cruel and sick jokes. He is also overtly lecherous. He also claims to have killed parents who objected to their children's placement in the program, as well as having raped Yoshitoki's guardian. Kamon himself bet 20,000 yen on Kazuo Kiriyama as the winner. When Yonemi tries to kill the winner, Shogo, for breaking the rules and saving Shuya and Noriko, Shogo stabs Yonemi in the neck with a pencil, killing him.

Keiko Onuki(edit)

Keiko Onuki (大貫 慶子, Ōnuki Keiko) is Shogo Kawada's girlfriend from his previous school in Kobe; Keiko was in Shogo's class when the two were in a Battle Royale.

In the novel, Shogo loses track of Keiko; Shogo believes that Keiko felt afraid of him. Shogo later discovered Keiko dead.
In the manga, Shogo and Keiko meet. When Keiko seemingly points her gun towards Shogo, Shogo kills her; he later discovered that Keiko had aimed at a person behind him. In the film, Shogo and Keiko are the last two in the game. The injured players notice that their collars are about to explode. Keiko shoots Shogo to entice him to shoot her fatally; before Keiko dies she smiles and says arigatou (Thank you). Shogo, the survivor of that game, wonders why Keiko smiled at that point.

In the novel and manga versions of Battle Royale Shogo carries a bird call Keiko had given him, and uses it as a signal should any of the main group get lost or, in the case of Sugimura, succeed in finding Kayoko let them know he found her. This is later exploited by Kazuo Kiriyama after Sugimura and Kayoko are killed. Shogo also carries a photo of him and Keiko in all versions.

Ryoko Anno(edit)

Ryoko Anno (安野 良子, Anno Ryōko) is the superintendent of the Charity House, a Shinto orphanage. She acts as guardian to Yoshitoki and Shuya. In the manga and novel, the teacher (Sakamochi in the novel, Yonemi in the manga) says that he raped her when she objected to her charges being selected for the program. Yoshitoki becomes enraged upon hearing this and charges at Sakamochi/Kamon before he is gunned down and killed.

In the last volume of the manga, Shuya revists the orphanage in secret without Ryoko knowing he is still alive. There he sees that she has formed a romantic relationship with another man. He tells himself he is pleased for her, before leaving on a ship to America.

Masao Hayashida(edit)

Masao Hayashida (林田 昌朗, Hayashida Masao) is the teacher of Class 3-B at Shiroiwa Junior High School. He is executed when he pleads for the lives of the 3-B students and his corpse is left to decay for a while before being shown to his former class by their new "teacher" who tells them that this is the fate that befalls those who would defy the Program. He is nicknamed "Dragonfly" because of his glasses.

Tahara, Nomura, and Kondo(edit)

Privates Tokihiko Tahara (田原 時彦, Tahara Tokihiko), Nomura (野村), and Kondo (近藤, Kondō) are, in the novel version, soldiers enforcing the Program. Tahara, described as "the frivolous one,"(7) shoots Noriko in the leg. The soldiers are killed by Shuya and Shogo in the end. They are named after characters in Kinpachi Sensei.

Kenichiro Sakaguchi(edit)

Kenichiro Sakaguchi (坂口 健一郎, Sakaguchi Ken'ichirō) was the gym teacher of Shiroiwa Junior High School, and he only appeared in the manga adaptation. He was a formerly an Olympic judo participant, and has high skills in the martial arts, calling himself the "Jaguar" in arrogance. This arrogance, along with his abusive methods of "teaching" his students, made him highly despised by everyone in school. In the English translation, Sugimura had trouble remembering his name due to his dislike for the teacher. Sakaguchi would brutally beat up Sugimura in a judo match, despite knowing that Sugimura refused to fight back in pride, instead making it look like his student was weak. Sakaguchi then got humiliated by Mimura when the latter took his belt and dropped his pants, making him a laughing stock. Then Sakaguchi would suddenly pick on Kiriyama for reading a book about judo in class; Sakaguchi got defeated in the first round and was humiliated again, so he hit Kiriyama hard in the face in round two. This turned out to be a mistake, as Kiriyama used the third round to pop out Sakaguchi's right eyeball out of its socket. Sakaguchi screamed in pain and begged for mercy and help, but was ignored as Kiriyama crushed the eye while it was still connected via the retina, while everyone else refusing to help due to hating Sakaguchi and fearing Kiriyama. Horrified and traumatized by this torture, Sakaguchi resigned immediately, and Kazuo Kiriyama became infamous from that point on.

In the manga, Sakaguchi challenges Sugimura because of his dislike for Chinese martial arts. But because it is a judo match, Sigimura cannot strike; therefore Sakaguchi won throwing him to the floor in brutal fashion.

Mai(edit)

In the film version Mai (FR) is the smiling girl who survived the previous program. She appears in the sequel, Battle Royale II.

Kazumi Shintani(edit)

As each and every one of his friends gradually die during the game, Taku begins to show a much more brutal, cold side, and, eventually, he confronts the terrorist his entire class was sent to kill: Shuya Nanahara, who disarms them and attempts to persuade them to join his cause. Taku initially shrugs off any of Shuya's persuasions, but, in the end, realizes that Shuya, like him, is fighting merely to honor his dead friends.

Taku finally allies himself with Shuya by the end, and, as Japanese/US soldiers raid the island, they evacuate their allies off the island. In a final ditch effort, Taku and Shuya charge as the island is bombarded by missiles. Luckily, Shuya and Taku survive, and reunite with their allies in Afghanistan , and go their separate ways.
