Are you suffering from an absence of GAR and strategy in your life? Already burn through your reserve JoJo's and No Game No Life strategic asspulls for a rainy day? Well I got just the fix!

Story: 9/10

You'd think the novelty of high gambling will be dull after 26 episodes right? But Kaiji's sequel not only delivers yet again but surpasses expectations! But it's not all a win. The story pits Kaiji into an underground camp as a slave laborer in order to pay off his debts. As in typical Kaiji fashion it's not all as it seems. As Kaiji butts heads read more

Ok this is my first time to write a review so please go easy.

Let me start by saying I'm a huge fan of psychological thriller series and I must say Kaiji is one of the best there is in that aspect. Season 1 was just amazing, keeps you thinking and surprises you with the twisted outcomes. In Season 2 Kaiji has done it again, each episode keeps getting better and better makes you at the edge of your seat hunger to know whats will happen next.

If your a fan of Psychological thrillers such as Death note or Liar game, Kaiji is a must watch read more

I was a great fan of the first season so it's probably going to be a bit biased.

But let me tell you how much I love these series. I usually like psychological thriller, "Main character being super smart pwning everybody" kind of anime but this is my favorite one out there.

One out was mediocre, liar game got boring midway through, death note was really good but... There's just something about this series that tops all those anime and manga.

I saw the first season like 4 years ago and it's still on my mind.

Anyway WATCH THE FIRST ONE if you haven't GO NOW!

It might get you read more

Kaiji season 2 offers a solid conclusion to the anime series however the series itself is a decrease in quality from season 1 Kaiji Ultimate Survivor.

Taking place a few months after the first arc, Kaiji is taken underground to pay his debt by manual labor which will take him around 15 years to complete his sentence. After a few months later, Kaiji is then allowed to be outside for a few days in which he hears about a casino with the infamous pachinko game "The Bog" which if Kaiji wins can pay off his entire debt.

The differences in this season being the 3rd series of read more

Anime: Death Note
Both animes are very similar to each other, both heroes plot an ingenius plan to survive, both keeps you guessing until the end and hunger for the next one, both has amazing storyline.

Kaiji is a genius anime without the supernatural stuff from Death note.

Anime: Touhai Densetsu Akagi: Yami ni Maiorita Tensai
Both are based on Manga by the same author, so expect the same character designs right from the get-go. Both also involve life or death gambles. The only real difference is that Akagi is purely a Mahjong series, and most of Akagi's gambles are merely for the thrill of it, rather than Kaiji's gambles which are merely to survive.

The titular characters from both shows also have the same voice actor, who plays both roles brilliantly.

Anime: One Outs
As Kaiji, One Outs is all about gambling but here tokuchi gambles only in baseball with his skills of throwing ball and by making strategies how to win the game. First I has no hope for this anime as I don't like sports genes but after watching it I loved it. The strategies are just too good, just go for it if you loved kaiji. you won't regret it. m/
