Battle Royale II (2003)
Shiori Kitano: The thing people fear most isn't dying, it's being forgotten.
Nao Asakura: One day, they'll all disappear. Family, friends... But I'll always be by your side. I can't do anything for you, but I'll be there. I promise...
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.
Masami Shibaki: [Shibaki gets shot, falls to the ground, then gets up slowly, in a weak voice] No big deal... I'm glad I made friends. Go now...
Takuma Aoi: Shibaki!
Sensei: [walks in dressed in jersey holding a rugby ball] Yo! So you're Nanahara Shuya? I'm Takeuchi Riki. "We declare war against all adults." Gotta hand it to you, you've got guts. Every adult on earth wants you dead. From now on, you'll have to live with all the lives you've taken. Including my daughter, who died in your terrorist attack. Neither of us have anywhere to call home.
[Riki's necklace begins to beep]
Sensei: Boy #1 Aoi Takuma, Girls #4 Kitano Shiori. One question, in life there's only the winning or the losing. Is that really true?
[explosion. Things shake]
Sensei: Go. You'll only find the answer by living your life.
[looks at the rugby ball]
Sensei: I... always did want to play rugby with you guys...
[another explosion. Riki's necklace beeps faster]
Sensei: Just go. 3, 2, 1... go!
[Riki runs and spikes the ball. His necklace explodes. And so does the bomb]
The Prime Minister: Hey, teacher, what a mess, huh? Who do you think fired those missiles? We finally pissed that country off! I just got a call from their president. They're going to attack in 12 hours. What the hell's going on with your class? What are you waiting for? So what if a dozen kids die, it doesn't matter! Fire a missile and blow up the whole damned island!
Sensei: You really mean that?
The Prime Minister: You surprise me. I thought you were a full-fledged adult who'd cross the line a long time ago. You do understand, there are only two sides, the winners and losers.
[Riki looks down then starts simmering]
The Prime Minister: Which side are you on? Fight with that country for justice and freedom...
Sensei: [interrupting] Cut the crap, you murderer!
The Prime Minister: Huh, what?
Sensei: Half a century ago, that country compared ours to a 12-year-old. How old does that make that country now? If any country pisses it off, it just bombs them. You call that adult behavior?
The Prime Minister: Listen, the whole world's rallied by that country.
Sensei: And who made that choice?
The Prime Minister: So what the hell are you doing here?
[Riki unzips his coat and reveals his necklace]
The Prime Minister: I see. Too bad. I had hopes for you.
[Riki looks furious. Prime Minister removes his glasses then we get a close up of him]
The Prime Minister: Exercising my full power as Prime Minister, I call upon the armed forces. Prepare for battle immediately. Before that country launches its missiles. I want every last terrorist and Nanahara Shuya, *dead*.
Lieutenant Anjo: Attention! Salute!
[Riki furiously throws an object at the Prime Minister's screen. Prime Minister ducks for safety. Riki walks away]
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."
Subtitle: The world is now in the age of terrorism. The anti-BR act organization 'Wild Seven' leader Nanahara Shuya is wanted for his acts. The adults started a new game, under 'Justice'. 'New century Terrorist counter-measure alternative' A.K.A BRII
Sensei: Boy # 15 Makimura Shintaro, Girl # 15 Fukuda Kazumi.
Shintaro Makimura: I absolutely refuse.
Shintaro Makimura: I absolutely refuse to participate.
Ryo Kurosawa: Loser.
Kazumi Fukuda: Sorry, but I'm going.
Shintaro Makimura: Go right ahead.
