It’s an Office Space Battle Royale!

by nickmamatas

We here at Haikasoru HQ get very excited when the first boxes of a new book come in. We were so excited, in fact, about the new edition of Battle Royale (in stores in November) that we spent all afternoon playing with them.

Cool fort we built, eh? We were hiding from our boss, who came to work with a crossbow today!

But in the workplace, as in a battle royale itself, you can trust no one. Eric quickly turned on me to win the game! (Rats!). I’m just kidding, you all. We don’t really build forts out of new books when they come new year quotes in to the office for the first time. We made the intern build the fort for us. Anyway, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for both former friends turned bloodthirsty psychotics AND the new edition of a Battle Royale, coming soon!

    Actually, my weapon was a war hammer. (How did it fit in my bag?)

    Awesome! Added to my Wish List. Any chance of an ebook edition soon?

    No specific ebook plan yet.

    I just came across this! I couldn’t be happier. Just a simple question: does this have a revised translation? I remember a few years ago I read the book so many times I ended up making a list of minor typos and stuff. Is this one cleaned up?

    Thanks so much for this!

  8. nickmamatas says:


    Yes, the text is revised. The translation is the same, but I gave it a line edit, and then we went through two rounds of copy edits. We also laid out the whole book a second time, so it has a better “look and feel”, as people say.

    That’s great, I can hardly wait to pick this up with Brave Story. I’ll definitely anticipate all your future releases. I hope they stay in print for a long time to come.
