So, just started watching Kaiji.

It's like watching Initial D, you don't watch it to find out who wins or loses, you watch it to find out how the main character goes about winning.
>>
I watched Akagi and thought it was great but couldn't finish the whole series since I couldn't relate with all the mahjong terms and combos

should I watch Kaiji?
>>
>What an anonymous.
>>
>>10175783
So far it's been pretty understandable.
>>
>>10175783
you're on /a/, 90% of you can relate.
>>
>>10175783
Kaiji is a lot easier to follow along with. The rules of the games and how to play aren't hard. There's like rock paper scissors, and a couple card games, etc.
>>
who the fuck wants to watch EXTREME rock paper scissors?
>>
>>10175864
It's not like they go all out with it like Duel Monsters.
>>
>>10175964
I'd rather watch a duel really. Kaiji's games are fukken yawn.
>>
>>10176014
Except it's not really about the games.
>>
>>10176022
Yea it's about the transformation of a low life into the proper japanese citizen... quite pretentious.
>>
>>10176072
It's about turning Anonymous into a respectable human being of today's social expectations.

>>
>>10176127
Redundancy?

Anyways, it happens to be the japanese version of "correct" and i hold high disdain for their double speak "culture."
>>
so why does anyone watch this? hope of some sort of redemption?
>>
>>10176072
>>10176193

You're the same faggot who always complains about this message in Kaiji, but you never explain what the fuck you mean by it. In what way is Kaiji's virtue uniquely Japanese (in a bad way)?
>>
>>10176365
What are you talking about? I've never complained about Kaiji.
>>
Bleh, I failed to see who you were replying to. Carry on.
>>
/a/ is now tsundere for Kaiji
...
*Shed a tear*
The good thing to follow in Kaiji is how the main character will win, what happens to the bad guys and Tonegawa's speeches.
>>
>>10176365
It is still a pile of pretentious shit. I'd rather be a low life than have Kaiji's weak mind.

KAIJI: PASSION OF THE NEET

the author completely discounts human kindness. It's fucking depressing and I don't buy his argument.

Regardless, I still watch the show because.....
I'm guessing Taka%$#@watever gets it in the end, or Kaiji actually dies in GAINEX finale!

how it all relates to japan, that guy's gonna have to explain. I've never been a nippon hobo, so I wouldn't know.

why you're the same person who admitted to not watching the show
>>
>>10176702
He comes in with one. He is easily manipulated. etc. basically the general assumption of author that everyone on that tier of society is because they are like Kaiji. Weather intentional or not. The boat population can be seen as this generalization and oversimplification. i.e. you are in this situation because of you and nothing but.
>>
>>10176748
I'm sure you would be scared, too.

And he may have a bit of a weak mind, but stronger than anyone else there with him, and (don't read on if you haven't seen ep 20+) he does fucking tear off his own ear to beat Tonegawa, even if his life did depend on it. Most people would have given up right there and just died.

/a/ tricked me into watching Kaiji.

they made up for it by introducing me to Vinland Saga though.

It appears this is some rage thread. I'll just pour a salt on open wound and copypasta some of comments given regarding Kaiji.

-That's on serious Nose! okay they all look serious.
-the art kinda annoys me its like a mix between anime and cartoons!!! even if its new type of art
-Where's the girls?! I want girls in bunny suits!
-rock paper sissors... u gota be shitten me :(
-akagi in black hair !! so lame -_-
-lol they got pointy noses xD
-y can't his nose be nicer -.-..... =x

And one comment for episode 22: Wow, tonegawa Puinishing session XD Is this show gonna prolong or having second season XD I wish tonegawa became Kaiji's friends in the future ^_^

Well 14 episodes in and I'm starting to find this show pretty lacking. It just seems that the way the story is being told is WAY to slow and I have a bad feeling this is going to end up like the first part of the chuunin exam. Something along the lines of the real goal was to survive the game and those that win or lose by the rules stated are the ones who are actually the real losers in this game. I mean its WAY to easy to just get over the bridge hell I'd run over so thats the most likely twist I can see for the end of this drawn out process. I'll give this a few more episodes but I'm still not all that inspired by it at this point.
>>
in the next episode kaiji will definitely call 2pac
>>
>>10177145
why call when he can meet him in person IN HELL! MUHAHAHAHAHAHA

Kaiji eyes widen as he reads the replies to his post. Not one Anonymous has taken the bait!

"But, how?" Kaiji chokes out, his eyes already welling with tears. "I did everything perfectly! I found a circlejerk, and tore into it with the most scathing and contemporary commentary. Why didn't they take the bait?"

Willing to sink Kaiji even farther into hades, Tonegawa illuminates Kaiji's mistakes with frightening accuracy! "You weren't wrong, Kaiji-kun. It's true that Fukamoto's art is shit, and it's doubly true that Anonymous is circlejerking, but you've forgotten the very first rule of trolling. Because of your ignorance of that most basic fact, you've doomed yourself without my help."

Confident in Kaiji's utter demise, Tonegawa pauses to light another cigarette, only continuing after a victorious puff. A puff that disperses into thin air, all too like Kaiji's brief flirtation with victory!

Yes, Kaiji has fallen into a pit from which there is no return. A bottomless pit that exists in every man's heart, growing ever larger with each successive mistake! He has forsaken the very essence of trolling, and with it, he has lost everything he has ever worked for!

"The best troll, Kaiji-kun, is so subtle that no is sure that you're trolling at all."

It's copypasta. Just like this:

"Don't Break the Ice"

Narrator: Every ice piece has been painstakingly removed, with the exception of those surrounding the edges. There is no piece that can be removed without causing the surrounding ice to fall through! It is Kaiji's turn, and if he loses, he will have his left hand froze solid in liquid nitrogen!

Absolute despair!

ZAWA ZAWA!

Narrator: Icy hands of destruction reach out for Kaiji! He never thought his opponent would be able to remove the last block, and now that his path has been frozen shut! Thick, impermeable ice blocks his path, with sharp sickles of death approaching from behind! The only way out is forward, but it has been sealed! A frozen fate beckons him! What move can he possibly make?!

Kaiji thinks to himself: "Shit! What can I do in this hopeless situation?! I'm going to lose my hand! Wait, don't think about that. Contemplating the stakes only serves to distract you from the game."

All those organs... wasted. But before that the labor. Seriously, the forced drama doesn't do shit for me. It just seems retarded to waste those guys. But of course the author knows that those filthy organs won't fetch much nor will they be forced to work at all...

Here's me thinking that Kaiji was about a guy who found his introspective suffering suddenly turned irrelevant by the suffering of others around him, i.e., growing up.
Also: you can't watch television without expecting melodrama. Seriously, if you're gonna complain about it, then stay away from it.

Kaiji takes itself way to seriously. To a point where I cannot enjoy it. And I enjoy a lot of dramas.

Swear to god, keep going to E-Card. I felt the same way, but it's worth it.

Also, fuck anon. You guys raved about how awesome this show was when it was shit (restricted rock paper scissors and human derby), but now that there's an engaging game and plot line(E-Card), you're making me RAGE like no there's tommorow. So, fuck you guys.

This thread fills me with ULTIMATE DESPAIR. Seems like when Kaiji ends, /a/ will start treating it like Gurren Lagann. I guess that's to be expected, seeing as how Kaiji is steadily growing in popularity. DA and all that shit.

Oh well. Such is the nature of /a/. I guess that, despite his claim to be the ultimate survivor, even Kaiji can't survive tsundere /a/.

Every time I see a fat/chubby man with glasses and a bulbous/flat sort of nose, I feel like kneeing them in the stomach, kicking them in the head, and screaming ANDOOOOOOUUUU!
