So you haven’t read Battle Royale by Koushun Takami?!
The book that inspired the Battle Royal Genre and media like Squid Game, Fortnite, and The Hunger Games?
Then pull up a chair and don’t get too cozy as we discuss how in this dystopian world the government is forcing children to fight to the death on an island and how one student’s plan is to take the system down!
All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during maybe a somewhat gray day and I was taking part in a mock death battle/battle royal/gladiatorial/whatever combat competition were you could use melee weapons et cetera.
Instead of really killing each other you would win with an attack that would be assumed to have killed the person, you only needed to make minor contact or at least get past their guard to where they would not have been able to block it, and then that person would be considered dead and would have to leave the field where the competition was taking place; and the last person “alive” would win the competition.
The competition took place in a fictional field near the yard of The E House, there was maybe a fenced in area with a circular track with a slightly raise structure in the middle that you could walk across, and there were some people I knew there as well like my former male classmate SS and several others.
During the mock death battle I remember doing pretty good, at some point I was among the last people left “alive”, and I had two chakrams as weapons/to block with in my left hand and I had one other item in my right hand that I used mostly to block with; the chakrams were good weapons for defense and offense, I was probably not throwing them, and whatever I had in my other hand increased my defense as well.
There was a woman with light-color skin with long orange hair who was also one of the last people left, she caught my attention and I was pretty overconfident at this point, and instead of eliminating her from the competition and winning I kept giving her chances to survive.
I could have attacked her from behind at first but I did not, I let her turn around first and I let her attack me first, and I kept easily blocking and dodging her attacks while giving her advice.
This probably angered her, we were possibly the last people left but I can not remember because my focus was on her now, and I was using this time to try to get to know her a bit better et cetera.
I can not remember if I eliminated her from the competition or not, I remember either a break being called or I won, but I can not remember.
I just remember everyone leaving the field to take a break, I remember going to my parents yard and talking with SS and some other people with plans to talk with the woman again, and then at some point I walked back toward the field but I had forgotten my weapons in my parents yard so I went to get them.
My dad was in the yard and asked me about something involving sleep and what movies were playing at movie theaters now, and about wanting us to go on a trip one day to another city to watch movies and stay at a hotel et cetera as basically a father and son vacation.
I told my dad that I was not sure what movies were playing now and that his idea was good, and that we would go one day soon; and then we walked inside the house.
Then I thought about how my dad had mentioned sleep and part of me must have partly realized that I was dreaming now because I remember wanting to know what day and time it was, I then remembered falling asleep on the living room couch but I was not sure what day and time it was now in the real world, and so I woke myself up from the dream to check because I did not want to miss work.
This caused me to jump awake in the real world, I checked my watch to see that it was Saturday and then I wondered if it was time to watch anime on Toonami, but then I realized that it was early morning and that I had a few hours (maybe two) before work so I recorded this dream.
