Battle Royale

Kawada, Shuya and Noriko are the only 3 students remaining. Kawada seems to turn on them and apparently kills them, and is then announced the winner. But somehow he tricked Kitano, and Shuya and Noriko are still alive and all 3 confront him. Shuya thinks that Kitano is going to kill Noriko and kills him first. They take a boat off the island, but Kawada dies on the way. Shuya and Noriko become fugitives, wanted for the murder of Kitano.

Tight Rope

Continuity mistake: When Kawada takes the picture with Keiko on it out of his wallet, you can see the picture from behind, because the light is on it. Then, when it is handed to Noriko, the picture is a completely different one. (00:54:20)

Trivia: In the film, the two transfer students are Kiriyama, the silent killer, and Kawada, the winner of a previous Battle Royale. In the original novel, only Kawada was the transfer student; Kiriyama was in the same class selected for this game of death. He was the main antagonist.

Chosen answer: He speaks in the book, actually, such as explaining that he flipped a coin to decide if he would participate in the game. He never felt emotion because of damage to his brain before he was born, which is why he's such a psychopath, but he didn't volunteer for the game. He was just part of the class that got selected, and had been forever. He actually had his own gang, who he kills at the beginning of the book.
