Battle Royale: Book, Manga or Movie?; which one was better?

I loved both the novel and the movie. I attempted to read the manga, but after the first few chapters, I stopped because it was too ... appalling? for me.

The novel has become my favorite all-time read and the movie is on my favorite movies list. I like how Takami went into detail with every single character in the novel(except maybe Fumiko, was it? The girl who got struck down with a knife; he didn't have too much about her).

But the movie has Shinji (my favorite character) die a LOT later than in the novel which made me ecstatic!

I know how you feel. Shinji is a great character, and having him around longer was definitely cool.

The one thing I like about the manga is that it give deeper characterization to some of the side characters. Very fun times.
