>hear nothing but how amazing this shit is
>finally decide to watch it
>90% of every single fucking episode is filler and pointless suspense moments that doesn't even make you feel suspenseful
Is season 2 any better? Why do people love this shit so much?

Greentext and blogging?
Get the fuck out of here, go and play your fucking videogames, turbonerd.

>blogging
I didn't state anything about my life, I'm just asking why people think this is so good when 90% of the scenes are filler, and you guys can't even give me a real response.

>>100375639
If you think 90% of Kaiji is filler, then you're obviously a retard who doesn't deserve a real response.
>>
Shit taste, the thread.
>>
>>100375639
the word "blogging" is a buzzword around here. Kinda like the term "edgy"
>>
>>100376008
And the term "filler".
>>
I preferred 2nd season but half of the season, Kaiji spends it sitting down playing pachinko slots. So you won't like it.

S2 was worse for me. After S1 I thought Kaiji finally learned a lesson but S2 starts and he's actually worse at gambling than before and he still thinks gambling is a fun and wholesome hobby.

KUYASHII!

>>100375097
Don't watch season 2. If you think S1 was 90% filler, you will hate S2.

You are a madman.

Except there is a ton of filler. There's constant moments where they sit around doing absolutely nothing but talking about moments that just happened, without shining any light on info we could have missed, or explaining anything new. They also spend large times on reactions, and the entire concept behind calling people/money devils does nothing but fill time as well. They spend 3 or 4 episodes playing E-cards, which only had 12 rounds and each round lasted around 3-5 minutes, but most of those 3-5 minutes were just silence and thinking, so they were obviously skipped. Each round only took about 1 actual minute in the animes duration. What's the rest then? A little bit is actual discussion and Kaiji's thought process, but the rest is just meaningless discussion and thoughts.

Learn the difference and start appreciating ggod-tier anime like Kaiji.

The entire point of the show is to be caught up in the suspense and hype. If it doesn't do that for you, then don't watch it.
>>
yes the way they stretch things is one of the complaints for most people. But it's always worth it at the end and to drop this show because of that is incredibly retarded.

Yes S2 is worse than S1 when it comes to that

I felt tense during the rock paper scissors event. During the bridges and E-card and the lotto I just wanted shit to progress. Especially on the bridge, Kaiji spent so fucking long just standing still when he could have continued on. Int he end it ended up being good that he waited, but holy shit if he was so scared why did he spend 40 minutes standing still in one spot just thinking about shit? That made me feel anxious more then anything else.

Come on.

The ony arc with pacing issues is the bog, you are just overreacting. If you don't like the anime's pacing read the manga.

If anything the "terrible2 pacing of the bog was a good thing in hindsight. We spent most of S2 watching balls go down holes and it was the most suspenseful and frustration thing I have ever watched and fucking love how Kaiji was able to make me feel exactly what the characters felt, and that relief when its over was amazing.
>>
>>100376830
I know. I love it. I watched it in a day. It stil had pacing issues.
>>
>>100377030
>I watched it in a day
It works much better in a marathon. Watching it week to week was hell, there comes a point where waiting a week to watch a guy hold down a button and do nothing else becomes tiresome.

Its pretty crazy that begging more cash off Endou was pretty much the only thing Kaiji did that he didnt do before the start of the bog game
>>
>>100375097
people have different taste to what they enjoy? STOP THE PRESSES!
I see anime people consider "great" just for me to hate it all the time, but you know what? I accept they have a different taste than me and i will just not watch it.

It's not that difficult
