![](https://i.imgur.com/R6Aib5V.png) In a dystopian future Japan, forty-two junior high school students are outfitted with weapons and bid to kill one another until there is only one left standing. Koushun Takami’s notorious high-octane thriller envisions a nightmare scenario: a class of junior high school students is taken to a deserted island where, as part of a ruthless authoritarian program, they are provided arms and forced to kill until only one survivor is left standing. Criticized as violent exploitation when first published in Japan—where it became a runaway best seller—Battle Royale is a Lord of the Flies for the 21st century, a potent allegory of what it means to be young and (barely) alive in a dog-eat-dog world. Featuring a new translation by Nathan Collins. https://www.mediafire.com/folder/wt5h8rblvc3nt/ Mediafire's giving me a 400 error at the moment when I try to open that link, but it'll work if you open it in a private window or another browser (if you get that error). Boy, this took a while. I kept procrastinating on it, because Battle Royale is a huge book. There are a couple epubs floating around, but they seem to be OCRs that weren't proofread, and thus shouldn't be read. I can safely say that this is the definitive epub edition of Battle Royale. Let me know if you have any trouble with it. I also went ahead and recreated the original Japanese cover (pictured), because frankly the Remastered cover is ugly in my opinion, whereas the original cover is cold and bleak. I've included the font (Octagon Variable, edited so that the letters used in the cover get colored in), and the PSD if you happen to want it. I've also included the companion book that Haikasoru released, Battle Royale Slam Book: Essays on the Cult Classic. I haven't done any editing to it, because frankly I'm not really interested in it. It's just a copy of the ebook that's already floating around on the internet, included for your convenience. Also, I forgot the twitter account's login info, so I can't make any announcements there. But it's not like it was getting much traction anyway, so it's whatever. I have quite a few more novels that I'd like to read and make epubs for, so hopefully I'll get around to doing those. I've been reading a lot these days, but haven't read anything that I felt needed a proper ebook.

Hello, any chance you'll be able to add the Karin Novels?

It doesn't look like that's been completely scanned, so it's not possible.
Do you have the fourth volume of the G.U. novels?

@TabiNoFansub I tried to get that from the library multiple times, but no library that's part of Illiad has a copy. If you happen to find a library with it, let me know (you can check World Catalog). @hotsake The library has sent me a couple Karin volumes, so I can scan some more soon.
