Hyoudo Riki is just an ordinary guy who likes to wear a tiger mask while Kung-Fu fighting, which means he fits in real well at BATTLE ROYAL HIGH SCHOOL!

Unfortunately for Riki, he`s the doppleganger in our world of Byoudo, Master of the Dark Realm, and when a dimensional gate opens between the two worlds, the evil Fairy Master tricks Byoudo into making an attempt to conquer our beautiful, and better lit, world.

Now poor Riki is semi-possessed by his opposite number, and the minions of the Fairy Master are mutating his classmates into hideous lustful monsters. To make matters worse, all the inter-dimensional commotion has attracted the attention of a sword-happy exorcist and the heroic Zankan of the Space-Time Police!

Which all means that Riki is about to take one bitch of a mid-term. The course is survival, and forget "Pass/Fail". The test is graded "Live/Die".

Pain has been given a name; and it’s Battle Royal High School. Granted I wasn’t going into my experience of this anime with high expectations of quality, but for God's sake is it too much to ask for a story that makes even the most teensy-weensy bit of sense?

I usually begin my reviews with an analysis of the story. Unfortunately after watching it I just don’t get it. Now perhaps if I did something crazy like subject myself to a second viewing I might find an unexpected bonus of plot, sort of like the toy surprise at the bottom of a box read more

To put it as succinctly as possible; This OVA is f**king insane. The plot is unintelligible, the dialogue is out of wack, the characters are barely likeable, and the pacing is enough to out stutter a heart arrhythmia. There's no clue in the 50-ish minute run time, but no clue is needed. This is chaotic, outrageous, anarchic 80s fun that clearly throws caution, logic, and copious gibs to the wind. If you hate fun and love taking yourself too seriously, steer clear, but if you don't mind hitting the off switch on your brain and diving into discord, do not avoid!!!

This is not to be confused with the manga series "Battle Royale". Battle Royal High School is a short OVA with a plot that's not very well paced, but offers insane action & well drawn animation. It's not one of those series where you can expect life philosophies such as "Fullmetal Alchemist"; it instead offers action for the sake of action. If you're looking for some violent fights then keep reading, if not then steer clear from this title.

I'm certain most people who seen this obscure OVA would wonder why I would give this a 6 or others possibly thought of this feature as read more

Read some bad reviews on this, but honestly this is one of my all-time favorites. Not having a huge selection in the 90s at the rental store, as a young adult I didn't have much to compare this to.

It's extremely bizarre, and action-packed from start to finish. Definitely reminds me of Bio Hunter and other oddities that came out around the same time

I really do like the art considering the time it came out. It must have been a lot of work drawing so many frames of blood and guts flying everywhere.

I rewatched this a few days ago, excited to have a breath of fresh read more
