Yukie Utsumi: Yeah.
Yukie Utsumi: [laughing] Never touched a guy before... you like Noriko, huh?
Shuya: Why?
Yukie Utsumi: [smiling] I know all about you, Nanahara. You know what that means?
Shuya: [confused] What?

[Shougo has just finished bandaging Noriko's leg]

Battle Royale II (2003)
Shuya Nanahara: We declare war on all adults!

Takuma Aoi: We never had anywhere we could go. I knew that all along. Or any place to go home to! This is war right? You're all fighting for your lives! But die and you're just one more candle! Even those poor little kids. You're all the same. You're no better than the adults!
Shuya Nanahara: How I wish this war would end. I keep on asking myself. How can I answer all those who have died? I don't know... But inevitably, we'll all grow up to be adults. The best survivors can do, is to keep remembering the ones who 'died.' Always and forever. Even after we grow up.

Shuya Nanahara: How much blood has been shed? How many tars spilled? All of our friends who fought beside us are dead, killed in the last three years. But even as justice can never be vanquished, we terrorists will never vanish, however evil they deem us. Because we know, that a handful of adults, a handful of 'nature' selfishly define the nature of peace as freedom in this world. But our world is so much more complex that. This world has 63 Billion people living their own lives, living 63 billion different ways, 63 billion kinds of peace, 63 billion kinds of concepts of what is "good", 63 billion kinds of war and evil. No one has achieved peace without fighting for it.
[Picks up torch and points it to screen]
Shuya Nanahara: Behind every peace, there's a river of blood, sweat and tears. But if we avert our eyes from that history and abandon it, then peace might as well be dog shit.
Sensei: Dog shit, huh...?
Shuya Nanahara: [flag waves and we see children playing with the students] Japan, China, North Korea, Guatemala, Indonesia, Cuba, Congo, Peru, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Grenada, Libya, El Slavador, Panama, Bolivia, Kuwait, Sudan, Somalia...
Nao Asakura: Where's Takuma?
[looks up and sees Takuma smiling]
Shuya Nanahara: ...Afghanistan.
[moves closer to screen]
Shuya Nanahara: You may be lonely, but it's time to stop being afraid. To all the abandoned children on earth, Let's rise up together and fight together!
[picks up AK-47]
Shuya Nanahara: We're throwing away the old rules, taking of to a place far, far away! Tonight, I send this message to all the adults who stole our freedom and pinned us down. Merry Christmas. Wild Seven and Nanahara Shuya.
[a missile is fired and Wild Seven Tower goes down]

Shiori Kitano: [struggling in her dying breath] Can I ask you something? That girl in the painting, Nakagawa Noriko, what's she like?
Shuya Nanahara: Who are you?
Shiori Kitano: Kitano Shiori. You killed my father, Kitano.
Shuya Nanahara: Noriko always... looks you straight in the eye and smiles openly.
Kitano: [Kitano's painting of Noriko shows up. Back to Kitano's pointing finger to his head] Listen, if you hate someone, you have to be prepared for the consequences.
Shiori Kitano: I'm sorry... I never... once... called you, my own father, "Dad."
