Just watched this. Well, not a lot happened, but I got some serious lulz and now I'm pumped for the next episode anyway.
As for the preview... holy shit not his fingers!
THIS BOX THIS BOX THIS BOX THIS BOX
lol lol one of the best eps. I love talkan animu.
bumping all kaiji THIS BOX threads to first page
THIS BOX... IT'S OF AN IDEAL CONSTRUCTION!
I actually thought this was one of the weaker episodes.
Fuck I just realized we're almost at the end of the series.
MY GOSH. THIS IS AMAAAAAZING!
This was just retarded, man, what pride? you beat the bad guys already, gtfo and go to some hospital, ffs...
In any other medium, this would have been stupid. But Kaiji made something as mundane as a fucking box INTENSE! I laughed all the way through.
There will be more. It has to happen. Otherwise... KAIJI IS STILL IN THE HOSPITAL.
D-don't worry, the second series starts with Kaiji frolicking in a park and awkwardly resisting the advances of a woman he doesn't like.
That is, if those scenes don't go the way of SEXY BRANDING and are actually animated.
oh god I hope they get animated
Wait they announced season 2? Or am I missing a joke here?
WHATEVER SERIES IS AFTER THIS ONE THEN
nothing is announced.
Kaiji is the MacGyver of anime. Mullet and all.
could someone spoil the tissue box raffle more me. i've seen that his fingers get chopped off, but what happens to the money and does the chairman lose anything?
About halfway through this episode a wound opened in my ear (a pimple of some sort, I think) and I had to stem to flow with tissues. I went HELL YEAH. True story.
spoil the tissue box raffle "for me"
It was also the left ear.
We need some epic fanart of the box.
Remember, this is MADHOUSE we are talking about. They made potato chips epic, so boxes are nothing.
and rule 34
Wasn't there one with Kaiji inside a box, I swear I saw something along those lines in the Kaiji MOE threads.
drawfags, you're on it!
googling gives a previous /a/ thread (404'd now) that said he'll switch out the chairman's tissue box for the empty tissue box while the chairman isn't looking... Kaiji loses this one along with money and his fingers I think
This episode was one of the best in terms of humor.
I was lauging my ass off at Kaiji's investigation of THE BOX.
Fuck, now I'm GAR for THE BOX.
THE BOX for SaiGar 2009.
he wins actually
loling so hard
Could you provide a little more detail about exactly how he wins? I know he loses his fingers, so it can't be a total win.
Care to explain how?
thinking "outside the box" i see.
The chairman shows that he can cheat better than Kaiji. Does not last more than 2 rounds. This is as much as I could infer with raw manga.
It's been suggested that this first series may exceed 26 episodes. This makes sense because they'll never make it 26 at this rate.
That's all I've been able to read of it. Kaiji gets both fingers and his ear re-attached, so it's pretty likely he'll get away with some money.
Part 2 involves him bailing Ishida's son out of trouble with Kazuya.
No, the last gamble is short.
The last ep is titled "Afterglow" = ending.
I fucking knew he would fuck it up as soon as he got the 20 mil. The only reason he is the "ultimate survivor" is because he doesn't know how to quit when he's ahead.
I want Kaiji to get old. That way they can make an OVA about Kaiji and Akagi's wacky senile afterlife adventures.
I'd fap to that!
However, Kaiji actually dies at the end of the third series
Sorry dude, Kaiji is about 20 in 1996 while Akagi dies in 1999.
Oh? From the Wikipedia article, I see something about Minefield Mahjong. Was he unable to channel Akagi or something?
3rd isn't over yet.
Series II takes place in 1999, 3 years after Gambling Apocalypse.

Kazutaka invites Kaiji back for another gamble. They play mahjong and Kaiji's losing big time.
I think it's revenge for the TB raffle since Kazutaka's wagering the same stuff as before (body parts).
From looking through the raws, it seems that Kaiji loses his fingers by being outcheated by the chairman. However, he doesn't lose the money he already gained. The chairman offers him much more money for risking his fingers, but he doesn't win it obviously.
"Nothing of value was lost", then.
OTHER THAN HIS FINGERS OH GOD ;_;
