Battle Royale, Vol. 1 - Koushun Takami, Keith Giffen, Tomo Iwo, Masayuki Taguchi Brilliantly violent and stylised, sticking true to it's manga routes without falling into the cookie-cutter trappings of the art and fully capturing the bloody atmosphere and terror of the story. It's only weakness is a slightly messy plot and similar-looking characters, both problems caused by the sheer scale of the plot and cast. It's not Shoujomanga or high fantasy, but any fans of the male-orientated violence of action manga should easily enjoy this first volume.
