Battle Royal High School is based on a Manga series called Shinmajinden, or "Legend of the True Devils." The scope of the Manga is considerably wider than that of the OVA, which is why some of the characters seem out of place.

Slashers Take Note: In the fight in the warehouse between the punks and Baba, the girl punk slashes at Baba with two razor blades between her knuckles. This is a method used by "tough girls" to disfigure their opponents -- apparently, two cuts close together form a wound that is much more likely to create an ugly scar.

A Terrific Tailor: There are several continuity errors in the film. For example, when Hyoudo first fights some monsters in the classroom, his shirt gets torn; but by the time he meets Byoudo outside, it's magically repaired!

Song Lyrics

Theme Song: MEDUSA
Lyrics: Sugimoto Yuuri * Music: Matsumoto Takahiro
Arrangement: Oda Tetsuroo & Matsumoto Takahiro
Marude subete o tsumetai
ishi ni kaete shimau tsumori nanoka?
Iki o koroshite mitsumeru... Medusa
Yurayura yureru otoko no serifu
narabikaeta sono atode
What do you want? What do you want to do?

Kimi ni nagareta "passion day"
odoroku hodo nayamashiku misete
Ikasu onna ni narikawaru... Medusa
Kirakira hikaru yubisaki
jumon tonae hajimeru sono toki
What do you want? What do you want to do?

Tsumi na yume misete ageru
hitomi no oku de kawasu
For the perfect life,
I've got to put on the magic!
For the perfect life,
I've got to put on the spell!
Shining, Shining, Shining Girl!
As if you'll be turning
everything to cold stone...
...you gaze with bated breath... Medusa!
When you've finished sifting through
all the lines men always feed you...
What do you want? What do you want to do?

Using the passion inside you, you make
yourself amazingly seductive...
You transform into one cool babe... Medusa!
Your fingertips glisten at the moment
you're ready to cast your spell...
What do you want? What do you want to do?

I'll let you see my sinful dreams,
deep inside my eyes you'll see...
For the perfect life,
I've got to put on the magic!
For the perfect life,
I've got to put on the spell!
Shining, Shining, Shining Girl!
