Someone explain this to me:
Does Kaiji have his fingers cut off in the thirteenth volume of the mango, and if they are, are they just magically reattached in the second series?
He has them reattached by surgery
FINGERS AND TOES CAN BE REATTACHED BY DOCTORS
THIS MAN IS THE WORST GAMBLER EVER, HOLY CHRIST
[SPOILER]putting them in ice helps to conserve them better, same with heart/etc in organ transplants. It is possible even by current medical standards, so it's not exactly SCIENCE
Thank god for that
it was reattached, that is why he is gambling again so he can get some money, because reattaching 1 finger is expensive but 5?
lemme guess, the surgery cost him his winnings?

Wait, how much was his debt again during the e-card events?
If he wins in the end, he walks out with 22m. Enough to pay his debt, and ishida's wife debt isn't it?
How does reattaching fingers and toes work? Do they still work normally or is there nerve damage? You'd think the nerves would get cut off, and I thought they didn't regenerate. Then again, I know little about medicine and the human body.
All of these spoiler tags make me feel left out. What intrigue are we discussing?
Spoilers: He loses his fingers and the money in the tissue box game.
Does Japan have free healthservice? That would explain the reattachment.
OP: It would be better if you stated somewhere other than the image filename which series is the one you're spoiling about, since it's impossible to know if you don't enter the thread.
You mean the tendons, and yeah they can be reattached, as long as the tendon doesn't curl up deeper behind the cut. You still need months of physiotherapy to be able to use your fingers like before tho, and I'm not sure if you ever regain full use of them.
supposedly, you can't reattached them after a long time, (I think) however the stem cells will still be there, so when you reattach it, it will take I guess, some time, before you can completely move your fingers. the stem cells will continue to grow and grow.
I thought muscle control is caused by nerves. Are the fingers an exception or have I lived a lie?
Why can't he ever win?
He gets his debt cleared later on
because that would mean the end of manga
Well the nerves carry the information, but muscles and tendons do the actual physical work, as far as I know. Could be wrong
