Book, no question.

I agree, I found the Manga a bit lacking, and the portrayal of the Program being turned into a reality television show was annoying. It failed to capture the spirit of the program. I felt that the movie was a fabulous adaptation that told the story well in the allotted time. The only thing I disliked was that some characters were glossed over, or completely changed. Sho, the gay boy, his death was almost like really morbid comic relief. Niida, was an evil bastard who I found worse than Kiriyama. Books have that advantage, but the film was well done.

I watched it on YouTube. It's in parts, but several people have it in playlists, so it shouldn't be hard to find a good cut of it.

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.
