    No. Read the book before you see either of the derivations.

    The book is the way to go, naturally. It's by far the best. It's the most believable of the bunch, and the characters are treated best in it. The manga is pretty good, but it strays too far from reality, and the only version in English right now is the shitty Tokyopop version, in which they scrapped the Japanese script and rewrote the whole damn thing, even giving it a different premise. It sucks.

    The movie is entertaining, and nothing more. I love the hell out of it...hell, I've shown it to 21 of my friends, all of whom love it as well, and we watch it whenever we get the chance. It's great fun, but it's not at all deep, and the acting is horrid...plus, they shittified most of the characters. Mimura and Sugimura were worthless and Nanahara lost his awesomeness from the book...not to mention Kiriyama's a generic psycho.

    I don't think anyone does say that.

    Watch Battle Royale first, this way you become used to the characters and get into the story.
    Then, read the Manga. More depth is added to the characters, and the art is wonderful.

    Then read the book. Do all three, it is necessary.
