if you like the hunger games i suggest you read and watch battle royale it came out way before and hunger games took every concept from it......it was funner killing children in BR

The story of the government taking youth in order for entertaining deaths is older than either, remember the story of the minotaur, and gladiator arenas?
Plus Hunger games is more about the people revolting, which they never did in the battle royale book.

yes they did they kill the teacher and if you continue on to BR 2 The wild seven wil Nanahara Shuya and thats girl(the two surviving runaways from BR1 and 5 other people revolt and then BR2 instead of them killing each other they take on the wild 7 and then join with them and take on the Japaness government

Yea, but that isn't a book, that's just what they did for a movie to make money off it, I am not even sure it was part of the manga

it doesnt matter if its a book or not its part of the series

Ok, but still, there are numerous other books that also have teenagers/young adults rebelling against the "system"
Half of those were based off of when a country was a war or something and the young people protested, which turned into riots, which turned into war in the streets.
Have you ever read Unwind, it is similar to Hunger Games in terms of young people rebelling.
But then again, both authors (Colins and Takami) could have struck on the same idea independantly, since Colins had never even heard of Battle Royale before Blogosphere started slandering her.

for one thats is not the main plot of ether story and im gonna call bull **** on that she never heard of it and she deserves the slandering.

Is the story not "The evil government is evil, so lets fight back!"
And she may have heard of it, but saying that she copied 99% of it is like saying that JK Rowling copied LOTR because it's about a young man who lives with his uncle, that is taken away by a big bearded man, meets new friends and destroys the evil threatening the land while almost dying in the process.
FYI - Both stories are remarkably similar to Theseus and the Minotaur since they had a bunch of kids killed by an animal until one killed it, left and killed the king.

The fact that it was in Panem with 12 Districts in North America, under a Totalitarian government and was set in the future -- Please, tell me how they compare other than the fact that they kill children in an arena.

Yea I have to agree with jdibbs Battle Royale was the original concept and basically 99% of Hunger Games was ripped right out of it, no joke. Hunger Games was good, I'm not bashing it, just saying that Battle Royale was first, by about 8 years.
User avatar #218 to #205 - ultrarobbie (03/25/2012) [-]
Oh no, I agree, BR was the original idea, and I know you're not bashing it, but to state that it took ever concept from it is a bit far fetched, isn't it?
#194 to #182 - jdibbs (03/25/2012) [-]
its in Japan with multiple 'districts' where one class from a school of delinquite students is choosen by the japaness government to kill each other. your 'aspect' was basicly just the main lay out of the plot i ment an aspect as in a certain part as in say how how the competitors are choosen or that its the rich capital against the poor districts.

User avatar #241 to #194 - ultrarobbie (03/26/2012) [-]
But the selection method IS different: Two from every District, one boy and one girl, between the ages of 12 and 18, must fight against 24 others if chosen by the lotto.

in BR there is an even number of girls and boys and they are randomly selected from multiple class from multiple school who are in ninth grade which is in that age group and they are forced to kill each other the only difference in what aspect is that there are two from each districtand the only difference in that is im assuming they work as a team but even then alliances are formed in BR
User avatar #611 to #256 - theblastradius (03/26/2012) [-]
Very close, except in BR all the students are from the same class of the same school (Shiroiwa Junior High School, Class 3-B to be exact). That's a primary reason alliances and rivalries form in BR, because the kids have known each other their whole lives.

They do seem quite similar, if that's the case. But still, it's not a blatant rip-off.
#275 to #260 - jdibbs (03/26/2012) [-]
if you dont mind sub titles i suggest you watch it you can watch it in parts on youtube or torrent it there are two of them you only need to watch number one it is just called Battle Royale and in my oppinion it is very close so if you like hunger games you'll like this
User avatar #279 to #275 - ultrarobbie (03/26/2012) [-]
My friends, who saw the film with me, have said it's good, so I'll have to check it out. The trailer looked good.
