This is book number 2 in the Battle Royale: Enforcers series.

High school students battle each other to the death in the original survival game!

Decades ago, the fascist government of the Republic of Greater East Asia seized control of Japan. In order to terrorize the citizens and crush any possibility of rebellion, the government established Program 68—a savage military program where teenage students were sent to a remote island and forced to kill each other—also known as the Battle Royale.

As night falls, the fight for survival has already begun. Shocked by their extreme situation, the students of Daitoa Academy resign themselves to what they’ll have to do to get off the island. Some students want to cooperate, but others fall back on their own merciless killer instincts. The squad leaders begin to show their leadership in different ways, looking for a way to survive. But the twisted leader of squad 2 may be the biggest threat to his own squad!
KOUSHUN TAKAMI was born in 1969 in Amagasaki near Osaka and grew up in Kagawa Prefecture of Shikoku (the fourth largest island in Japan), where he currently resides. After graduating from Osaka University with a degree in literature, he worked for a newspaper company, Shikoku Shinbun, for five years, reporting on politics, police reports, and economics. Also, he attended Nihon University’s liberal arts correspondence-course program and acquired an English teaching certificate for junior high and high school.

Battle Royale, completed after Takami left the newspaper company, was his debut work and his only novel published so far. With its publication in Japan in 1999, it received widespread support and became a best seller. Battle Royale was serialized as a comic, made into a feature film in 2000, and has been translated into more than ten languages. Since its initial release, Battle Royale continues to be a cult favorite in Japan and internationally.

In 2012, Battle Royale: Angels' Border, a spin-off manga scripted by Koushun Takami, was released.


YUKAI ASADA is from Shunan City, Yamaguchi Prefecture. He moved to Tokyo and formed a punk band while also working as a manga assistant. In 2006, he teamed up with Mai Tsurugina for his first serialized work, M.C.☆LAW. Other noteworthy works comprise band-themed manga such as Woodstock and Koori no Buta, as well as Sengoku Basara, based on the popular video game. His most recent works include Butsumetsu Kekkon and Battle Royale: Enforcers.
