Synopsis: “”At the dawn of the millennium, the nation collapsed. At fifteen percent unemployment, ten million were out of work. 800,000 students boycotted school. The adults lost confidence, and fearing the youth, eventually passed the Millennium Educational Reform Act – AKA The BR Act…”” In the year 2000 the Japanese government passes the “”Battle Royale”” act to deal with out-of-control juvenile delinquency. This act decrees that once a year a class of 9th graders is chosen at random, stranded on a small island, and armed with random weapons. The kids are also outfitted with unremoveable necklaces that monitor their location and life functions, and explode if more than one student is alive at the end of 72 hours. Let the fun begin!
