Synopsis

This manga was released straight to tankobon (graphic novel) format, therefore there was no serialization. However, a thirty page preview ran in Akita Shoten's Young Champion Magazine. The problem with straight to tankobon manga is that there is no indication whatsoever of when the next volume might be released.

Though the author is the same, the artist has changed from the original manga. The realistic grit of Masayuki Taguchi has been replaced by the lighthearted cartooniness of Hitoshi Tomizawa. Also, though it is still written by Koushun Takami, the original story is based on the universe of the films rather than that of the original novel.

This is a sequel to a good manga. This is not a good manga. As a matter of fact, I rank Battle Royale 2 among the worst manga that I have ever read. I had always heard bad things about it, but I assumed they must have been exaggerated or superficial. All of my expectations were shattered. This is the exact opposite of what a sequel should be. Everything that the first Battle Royale did right, this manga does entirely wrong. It takes all of the first's strengths and turns them completely on their head. Battle Royale featured a cast of very flawed teenagers and read more

I can say this right here and now to get it out of the way. I DO NOT care about the art of a manga I care for a story. But I despised this art with every fiber of my being.

I really really liked the first Battle Royale, I would put it in my top 3. When I heard there was a second Battle Royale I bet you could see the joy on my face. I was so very disappointed.

The Storyline was too different from the first and the art and characters were not developed whatsoever. This is the only manga I have read more

Let's get the basics out of the way first; Battle Royale II is as much of a sequel to Battle Royale as Predator 2 is to Predator. Meaning it takes place in the same world and have a similar theme, but that's about it. You won't be seeing any of the characters from the first part, and the story doesn't revolve around the program this time around. Instead, it's a different type of survival game, centered around teams.

Battle Royale II: Blitz Royale is not as horrible as some will lead you to believe.
In fact, it's a fairly good story, and every bit a spiritual successor read more

Battle Royale 1 is one of my favorite movies and one of my favorite manga. I heard that people didn't like Battle Royale 2: Blitz Royale because of the artwork, so I decided to give it a try knowing that I'd have to ignore the artwork and look past it to the story.

It didn't help.

There is no maturity to this story. In fact, there is almost no story what-so-ever. The characters are one dimensional, and the relationships between the characters are practically non-existent. The setting is below average at best, and has little-to-no description. And as mentioned before, the artwork is terrible.

Everything good about Battle read more
