Battle Royale: The Novel: by Koushun Takami

“What he should have done was immediately seek cover. Instead, Shuya stood there, stunned.

He recalled Sakamochi’s reply to Kiriyama when he asked when the game began: “As soon as you leave here.””

    1. Yes… It’s actually the book a lot of people say Suzanne Collins ripped off in the Hunger Games, which I find extremely unfair… The plot synopses do sound similar on paper, but that’s like saying two people look the same because they’re both brunette.

    1. This one’s interesting, as it’s in translation, so makes me wonder in places about the differences between Japanese and English sentence structure and form of address, etc.
