** And that's not even mentioning the countless times where school shootings have made the idea of school kids killing each other extremely unsettling. The Virginia Tech massacre in particular caused the American remake to be stuck in DevelopmentHell.

The [[UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} Columbine shooting]] caused the North American distribution of the film to be delayed for over ten years, and the Virginia Tech massacre in particular caused the American remake to be stuck in DevelopmentHell.

*** She may have crossed it a lot earlier, when she [[spoiler:murders a defenseless Megumi Eto, especially because she does it so casually and with no remorse whatsoever]]. The event shows three important things about Mitsuko : she plays to win, she will do it without hesitation and she's ready to lie, manipulate and backstab in order to do it.
* NauseaFuel: Mitsuko's complete mental breakdown and [[spoiler:slow death at Kazuo Kiriyama's hands in the manga.]] Also a bit of a TearJerker.

** To some, the amount of {{Gorn}} in the manga in general. Some of the deaths are very gruesome.

** Mitsuko.

** Mitsuko.Mitsuko, because of her FreudianExcuse.



** Some of the students who went insane and tried to kill their classmates, like Yoshio Akamatsu, Kyoichi Motobuchi or Kaori Minami. After all, they're nothing but normal students, suddenly thrown in a deadly game where it's "kill or be killed". They couldn't handle the situation and snapped, but they weren't "evil".

* DracoInLeatherPants: The prevalent fandom attitude towards Mitsuko, who is a backstabber, a murderer (as well as the only student to have killed someone ''before'' the Program), and possibly even a rapist - explicitly so in the manga. May have been designed as such, the author having admitted she's his favourite female character.

** To say that Kazuo has fangirls would be a massive understatement.

Added DiffLines:

** The premise of the Program in the second movie. So, instead of sending experienced soldiers to take out the Wild Seven, the government sends a group of high school students without thinking about the possibility that Shuya has away around the exploding collars after [[spoiler: escaping them before in the first movie]]. Then there's the partner system where if a student dies, the student with the same number of the opposite sex dies with them, drastically reducing their numbers. Finally, they still give them joke weapons when they're fighting a terrorist organization. All the Government did was hand the Wild Seven targets/reinforcements on a silver platter.


Added DiffLines:

* SignatureScene:
** The First Movie:
*** The row call scene before the Program begins.
*** The crotch-stabbing scene.
*** The final confrontation with Kazuo.
** The Second Movie:
*** The "Merry Christmas" Speech, which has been considered even by people who hated the second movie to be the best scene.
*** Kitano's talk with his daughter on what he thought was her birthday, mostly for being the only scene Kinji Fukasaku filmed before he died.
