Editorial Reviews

Hyoudo Riki is just an ordinary guy who likes to wear a tiger mask while Kung Fu fighting, which means he fits in real well at Battle Royal High School!

Plot Synopsis
A simple story about a high school karate master possessed by a demon lord who is his doppleganger and wants to enslave the world by destroying a demonic fairy who also wants to enslave the world and who's also possessing a demon hunter, and the high-tech temporal security officer who's trying to stop most of them. Or at least some of them. And there's also a love triangle.
Review
Here we've got a demonic fairy queen (she's worse than she sounds) and her minions, the lord of the dark world, a time traveling agent in a battlesuit, a high school Karate student who likes to wear a jaguar mask when fighting (hmm, that sounds familiar...), and his girlfriend. Pretty standard fare, eh? More or less. This one has all the old elements, it just has more of them in one place at one time that you'd usually expect. Battle Royal High School has a mildly interesting plot, a smattering of humor, and loads of action. Nothing particularly special, but the particularly weird plot, the sheer volume of action (and blood--it's plenty gory), and animation well above par set this one apart. Also look for a very unusual and well animated scene with our hero reassembling his girlfriend from the inside out (don't see THAT every day...). There are some passable performances in the dubbed version, particularly the main character.
Overall, Battle Royale High school is just another martial arts/demon invasion action horror story, but it's quite well done, has lots of action, and has a few ususual bits that really stand out. Check it out if you like that kinda thing, but probably not worth the time otherwise (though I'd reccommend almost anybody with the stomach for it see the girlfriend reconstruction at least once).

and hey, all you bozos out there, I've got news for you...

THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE KOUSHUN TAKAMI NOVEL "BATTLE ROYALE", THE MANGA BASED ON THE NOVEL, OR THE SUBSEQUENT MOVIE DIRECTED BY KINJI FUKASAKU

so stop being a bunch of morons comparing this to any of the above.

...my sister found this movie from a friend. She had rented it and told her it was bad. Bad as in the footage. My sister saw it, said it was bad, and then I watched it...
...it had absolutely no plot. It seems more like a story written by a 3rd Grader. Nothing is explained and the ending leaves you wondering in mystery where these people came from, why they wanted to do what they did, and what happened which wanted to make them do what they had to do.
Not to mention the blood, gore and unnecessary swearing in this film, it was an absolute waste of time. Nothing was explained, and it was very desturbing. Some people may like it, but in my opinion, this is trash. Try something else.

This is a 1980s anime that is part of the "catch all" action genre. Sometimes a publisher will create a movie or game that has a mix of different characters in it to try to net a bigger audience. In the same way that the Escaflowne or X/1999 anime, tried to incorporate sci-fi with sword and sorcery, this anime is a mish-mash of bizarre this and that including:

A highschool aged martial artist who wears a Leapard mask
Evil fairies
A demon king
Hideous mutated demons
A space ranger ala Power Rangers
Evil teddy bears
A mystic demon hunter with a wooden sword
Some highschool romance

For people who like shonen anime (a bit of gore, a couple scenes of nudity and a smattering of 'fight scenes' broken up by the occasional dialogue and comedic character interaction) this may be right up your alley. The "high school" portion of the story just sets the stage for all the weird characters to come out of the woodwork. The art designs are decent enough, but the animation definitly looks 1980s, so don't expect something ultra smooth. Plot is rather minimal because there are so many characters taking the stage that their individual minor plots keep stomping on eachother's stories.

This film was probably intended to be a B-film rather than something truly innovative, so accept it for what it is. If the list of content above seems to interest a potential viewer, I'd say give it a rental and decide whether you'd like to purchase it.

Overall the disc is put together well. Decent menus, good video quality with both an English subtitle and language playback option.
The show itself is a pretty typical Kung-Fu anime. The plot is only present enough to carry the program from fight to fight. I will say that the fight scenes are very cool and worth seeing. So if you like shows like "Ninja Scroll" this disc is something to check out.
Normally I'm not a fan of bonus material. (I buy DVDs for the movie.) Yet this disc has got a very cool feature. They call it a video storyboard stream. When selected the video is that of storyboards. The whole movie plays this way, not just a couple of scenes like hollywood discs. And while the storyboards play (in a highlighted area) the actual movie is displayed in a small window in the corner. As an artist, I was intrigued with seeing how the conceptual storyboards related to the final show.
This DVD is worth getting.
