This volume of the awesome and terrible series focused on some of my favourite characters. The delightful Shinji Mimura, who struggled to accept love and put up an act of bravado to cover it; Shogo Kawada, the seemingly tough warrior with a heart of gold; and Kiriyama, the guy you can't say you like without sounding like a sociopath too but who is oddly intriguing - you feel the need to discover what it is that has made him such a cold, calculating killer.

Kiriyama is an important character in m

El quinto volumen acababa en tensión, con un plano que nos mostraba un anónimo espía acechando el refugio del trío protagonista. Hay que reconocer que los autores juegan con habilidad en los cierres de cada tomo, dejando ganas de continuidad para resolver una situación que queda en el aire. Así pues, este tomo se abre con ese anónimo personaje, confundible con Kiriyama (!!) pero que no resulta ser otro más que el leal Hiroki Sugimura, que poco a poco va siendo desarrollado en los sucesivos libro ...more

~4.5 Stars~

The one complaint I have with this book is that there was barely any Shinji and Yutaka - they did get a chapter to themselves at the end, and I did really really love the fact that Sugimura took up most of this book, because I'm like in love with that boy because he is just perfect and I love him, and the flashbacks, and it was just awesome, but still. Not until the end! But I still really enjoyed it.

Well then, That happened fast. After taking care of Noriko, Kawada gets a bee in his bonnet and decides to take on Kazuo. I have yet to understand why the characters are all very shouty, and not entirely believable. The internal monologue for most are very childish which is becoming a little annoying. However the story is trundling along at a cracking pace with little sign of letting up, which is good.

Baca ulang.

Kazuo Kiriyama menyerang kelompok Shuuya. Hm... rasanya kok Kazuo si psikopat ini jauh lebih keren dibandingkan boga lakonnya ;P

Di saat kritis si jago kungfu Sugimura datang membantu. Tapi tetap saja untuk menghindari Uzi-nya Kazuo Sugimura harus membawa Shuuya lompat dari tebing ke laut. Tentu saja keduanya selamat... ya iyalah, ini kan baru jilid 6, masih jauh dari jilid pamungkas.

Sementara itu, Shinji Mimura sibuk mempersiapkan bom untuk menyerang gedung sekolah tempat panitia bers

I feel like I waited so long for this volume to come in the mail!!

After a nearly 2 week long wait, I finally get to dive back into Battle Royale and it was as exciting and gripping as usual. I can't wait to see how everything turns out! I just want to keep reading!!!

Five stars for Sugimura alone.

There are some great action sequences but sometimes the sentimentality gets in the way. It's like in every scene somebody is filled to bursting with teardrops forming in the corners of their eyes. One improvement is that there are less flashbacks because most of the characters are pretty well established by now. The realistic and grotesque art is a plus and a lot of motion is implied in a motionless context.

Feather Mista
Estoy bastante seguro de que había "readeado" todos los tomos del manga de Battle Royale, pero por algún motivo parece que cuando el infame Deleted Member empezó a borrar ediciones a rolete, hubo ediciones que directamente desaparecieron. Por ahora copipasteo esto a toda la serie para disminuir el riesgo de que vuelvan a hacer una forrada semejante.

Kiriyami has the moves!!!

That's all I can say. Yeah, he's my favorite, although I also like the Chinese kung fu dude and Mimura!
