>REVERSE RACISM: A term created and used by white people to deny their white privilege. Those in denial use the term reverse racism to refer to hostile behavior by people of color toward whites, and to affirmative action policies, which allegedly give ‘preferential treatment' to people of color over whites. In the U.S., there is no such thing as "reverse racism."

He was too stupid for college/uni

Like me.

But I dunno seems like in America every retard can get a shot at a higher education.
>>
>>100952904
Stupid ? He elaborated a huge plan to beat an invincible pachinko machine and stayed calm enough to think and find solutions even when odds were against him. No one on /a/ can do that, it was harder than rob a big bank or something like that.

He is street smart, and good at deduction and things.

But that is not all when it comes to intelligence...to get ahead in this world, you need other things...

Kaiji would never end college.
Let's face it, sometimes he's really, really clever. But it's his "survival instinct".
>>
Kaiji loses whenever his life is not in danger.
>>
>>100956372
Kaiji is smart but has no self-control. He can only do great things under utmost pressure. He'd probably drop out at some point because he never does his assignments, doesn't start on time to prepare himself for exams, etc.
>>
>>100955120
He understood the evacuation system blocked, and used this in a very smart way.
>>100956372
>>100958387
>>100955123
His survival instinct would be what would make him graduate.
Like, one day before the final exam, he didn't work but then he'd find a way to survive, just like in the anime,
I think Kaiji didn't awaken this survival instinct before the anime and that's part of the reason he didn't do anything with his life.
>>
>>100957124
He won when only his Pericas were in danger (Ohtsuki arc)
He lost when his life was in danger (Rock paper scissor arc, since he ends in debt)

The only time Kaiji lost because his life wasn't in danger was when he tried to trick Hyoudou, because his idea was stupid.
>>
>>100958544
Kaiji's survival instinct doesn't work when his life isn't threatened. The threat of dropping out isn't enough for him to get off his ass. He needs a very present threat, a guy threatening to cut off his balls or something. The threat of failing at life, of not making a lot of money in the future, is way too abstract for him to actually make him change his lifestyle.

>I think Kaiji didn't awaken this survival instinct before the anime and that's part of the reason he didn't do anything with his life.
In the manga, Kaiji falls back into his loser self just a short while afterwards. His survival instinct isn't something that is permanently active, it only activates when his life is threatened.

To his loser self ? What does it mean, he didn't get a job ?
>>100959090
You underestimate the stress one can have in a university.
>>
>>100959199
>To his loser self ? What does it mean, he didn't get a job ?
He lives as a NEET with the guy he did the pachinko heist with.

>You underestimate the stress one can have in a university.
It's abstract stress that makes you worry about the future. Kaiji does not very about the future, he lives in the present.
>>
>>100959287
>He lives as a NEET with the guy he did the pachinko heist with.
I think I knew that, but in the end, what does he do to get money ? He gambles again ?
Damn, I thought he'd gamble again to get his revenge on Hyoudou or something like that, not because he's a lazy fuck.
>>
>>100955123
And that is why Wisdom and Intelligence are two very different stats.

>>100954182
But he is also a gambling addict who is pretty much doomed to ENDLESS EJACULATIONS in the world of GAMBURU.
>>
>>100959356
>Damn, I thought he'd gamble again to get his revenge on Hyoudou or something like that
He's still Kaiji. He's not the type of person to be that determined.

That's what he'd need to be perfect. I love how he kept his moral in check even drowned in that endless gambling world, but I'd love it even more if he went after Hyoudou to get even.

That's what Kaiji's character lacks in comparaison of Akiyama from Liar Game, actually. Akiyama plays for hundreds of millions every game and his goal is to destroy the Liar Game's office.
>>

>You underestimate the stress one can have in a university.
Not the point. Kaiji is, as has been mentioned in the story couple of times, a scum of society, not because he's not smart but because he lacks discipline and long term planning. He's all about instant gratification. He does well for short burst of time for an obvious goal that doesn't take long to achieve. It's why he can't function in a "normal" life, college or not. The moment he wins, that's it, he's back to loafing off. Things like college/uni and holding a job is about long term gains, you have to slowly work your way and so on. He lacks the capability to do that.

It's why he keeps falling back to gambling. That and the fact that he's hooked.
>>
>>100959518
But that's not true. Fukumoto characters sorted by Moeness:
Kurosawa > Sawako > Kaiji > Ichijou

>>100952566
Wasn't his family poor or something? I remember his sister married to a minister or something but I can't remember anything else.
