Battle Royale T-Shirts back in Stock at Airside

M Frot Closeup

These brilliant and iconic t-shirts from the graphic design agency Airside have been around for a while but they are just back in stock. The t-shirts are inspired by a famous Japanese movie called Battle Royale, which is a sort of combination of Lord of the Flies and The Running Man. Essentially 21 9th grade students are dropped on an island forced to fight one another under the guise of military experimentation. I’ve never seen the movie but I think it’s going in my netflix queue right now :-) Anyone seen it?

    I’ve seen it! I wrote up a bunch of Battle Royale t-shirts (including these two) back in March.

    Battle Royal is worth watching, unless you’re really appaled with blood and violence… it does however have quite a lot of zen-like moments

    Awesome, I think it will be right up my alley actually. I’m a big fan of Tarantino and I know he’s been influenced by movies like this.

    Wow, I wish the American Dollar wasn’t failing so much. I would buy both of these, otherwise.

    Great movie and great, stylish t-shirts. It’s a shame I already know 2 people who owe them otherwise I’d buy one of the t-shirts as well.

    I’ve seen. It’s one twisted movie, let me tell you. Good, yet still twisted. =).

  8. karl says:

    Twisted is good :-)

    @kRabbit no kidding, these t-shirts are a fortune if you’re ordering from the US

    They cost a fortune if you’re ordering from the UK!
    The tee economy over here sucks.

    Battle Royale is amazing. Very well made. I haven’t seen the sequel though. Has anyone else?

    If you guys dig the movie, you should check out the book, which I thought was much better. It preceded the movie too. Written by Takami, I believe.

    Cool looking shirts by the way.

  12. karl says:

    Really? Thanks for the tip Aaron, I enjoyed the movie a lot even though it was very goofy :-)

  13. jack says:
