Coming Soon: Battle Royale

Long time no see! Just a short post to tell you all that I posted a review on Goodreads for Rock On: A Story of guitars, gigs, girls and a brother (not necessarily in that order) and I will be posting it onto my blog soon-ish :)

Also, as the title states, the most important part of this post is to tell you all of my new discovery....Battle Royale! Yesterday (while procrastinating on studying for my chemistry exam), I came across a video comparing The Hunger Games and Battle Royale and I was very intrigued to see just what types of similarities could get certain people to cry foul that Suzanne Collins had stolen her ideas from another source.  And I was instantly hooked when I read the premise for BR.

Anyways, when I do get around to reviewing BR I will be keeping HG out of it. I personally do see many of the similarities presented in both works; however, they both shine in their own ways and I want each one of them to soak up the praises without the other one taking away some of the glory.

My BR status is that I have finished the movie version....

I am currently reading the manga version (I just started today and am on like chapter 7...I'll probably be done during summer break :) )

And I will start the novel version ASAP =]

Have any of you read/watched Battle Royale before? And if so, what are your thoughts on it? 

Wdebo :)

Edit: (May 5,2012) I have finished Battle Royale (Manga) and the second movie and will be posting a review soon-ish :)
