Kaiji takes away the 2 remaining stars and all of the cash.
Kaiji left 6 million behind. they sold one star for 5 million. There were only 8 stars left out of the 10 they had, this means they mustve sold another one for at least 5 million.
This brings it up to a total of 16 million, however, Kaiji ended up with 8 million and used it to buy a third star.
what the hell?
in b4 slowpoke.
Irrelevant to the OP, but does anyone have the yakuza pasta? It was educational.
I don't think you realize how the Yakuza fuck with people in real life.
First, the only people that take loans from Yakuza are gamblers, NEET, Freeters, and Salarymen with dead end jobs that make wages barely above part time.
Regular banks refuse to give you loans because you don't have enough collateral or a high enough income and so Yakuza are your only resort, and they take full advantage of this.
They're seemingly nice in that you can borrow practically limitless amounts at first, but then they hit you with absurd interest rates and come to your door and threaten you until you pay up, usually in the realm of a thousand bucks a month, leaving you with barely enough money to pay the rent, utilities, and eat.
If you don't pay then your interest rates go up again and the Yakuza become even more threatening and violent before.
This generally continues every month for 10, 15, even 20 years depending on how extreme your debt is. And don't even think about skipping out on town to escape, even if you do disappear then your family and whoever else was stupid enough to cosign for you will be forced to shoulder your debt.
There is zero opportunity for these to invest, and it's very easy to go into debt when moving into a new apartment can have a security deposit requiring up to 6 months rent in advance.
Kaiji is essentially the same as a blue collar worker with a gambling addiction that's in debt to the local bookies, investing is simply not an option and it's not like a NEET like him could ever get a decent full-time job. Even if he did that doesn't mean he'd be able to quickly and easily erase his debt considering how poorly starting salarymen get paid, especially ones with no education and no real potential for advancement.
6+5+5 =/= 8
fuckers, if theres something im missing(e.g. they used the money to pay their loans right away) just quit janking my chain and tell me already.
You should be able to solve it.
I hope noone falls for that copypasta.
Speaking of Kaiji inconsistencies, what the fuck is up with the victims of the first bridge walk? At first they were all laying in the hallway, moaning in pain, barely able to move. They're supposed to have a whole bunch of broken bones and be in need of hospital care.
That was episode 15. Then, by episode 18 they'd crawled into the room and were just kinda chillin. They were still kneeling, though, at least, and appeared unable to stand.
Well they fell off the beam about 4 weeks ago, so they've had time to heal.
But by the current episode (and I think last one, too) they're all just standing there, running around grabbing towels and shit. What the fuck? Does the weird pentagram symbol on the flow bestow healing magic to who ever is in the room?
this is about the best answer I can come up with
(here's the guy running off to grab a fucking towel)
andrenaline? i dunno.
also there are two guys wearing #10 in that screenshot, jesus christ they aren't paying any attention. The #10 on the left should be #5.
kaiji's fighting spirit has brought them back hope, so now they can walk around despite their injuries.
This is an awesome answer.
so rawfags, is that thing in the preview what I think it is?
Is Tonegawa made to kneel on a burning/electified grill like the one that was shown?
You know, I wondered about that myself.
Then I came to the conclusion that Kaiji is secretly Jesus.
>>Then I came to the conclusion that Kaiji is secretly Jesus.
It's no secret. Just look at that mullet.
He always was!
the ones in ep 18-19 aren't the ones who fell from the 1st bridge, but the survivors of 1st who didn't cross 2nd
That sounds suspiciously like blasphemy against our lord and savior.
This thread suddenly went from blah to awesome.
