Oh boy I sure do like me some societal context!
Extra Clarification: The term Sabaibukei means “survival story”, or “type”, or “theme” (“sabaiburu” = Japanization of “survival”). The reason it’s also known as “death game” is just because Battle Royale was the forerunner for sabaibukei and it depicts the most literally “death game”. However, it’s not meant to be taken in an extremely literal sense.
It’s important to note that this is just a small slice of a bigger picture.
