I guess we're doubting Sakazaki for nothing.
Their plan was great but still they can see through it.
I wonder what is this "block" they referring to.
If Kaiji's a troll, he knows what to do.

Also, they advertised the live action movie of Kaiji 2. Going to check it out when the time comes. :D

That was painful to watch, I feel sorry for Sakazaki.
Great episode though!

Recently bought the first Kaiji movie on DVD, even though I don't think they did such a good job with the casting. lol

Well yeah. It's natural for gamblers to be like that. You already lost a big amount of money yet still pursuing to win.

That's what I do when it comes to games. It's hard to stop if I don't win. lol

I ruined a good pair of pants watching Sakazaki go against the bog. Honestly believed the plan would have been more of a mindfuck but good nonetheless of how he was going to get the magnet without being caught. Also that beer switch Kaiji did was epic, lmao.

I'm also curious about this "block", would be incredibly awkward if they were also using a magnet of some sort to prevent from winning..

Sakazaki pretty much lost it in this episode.
I'm waiting for what Kaiji has in store for the Bog Machine. His plan will probably be more epic then the magnets if he actually beats the machine.

Not sure how I feel about this whole pachinko thing as I prefer to watch cards, dice and traditional gambling kind of games... doesnt seem to be fun (to watch).
Everything just seems abit 'hands off and pray while the balls drop down' to be interesting and with little strategy involved at all.. besides cheating lol. Overall a decent episode though. Hope it gets more interesting later..

Sakazaki's gonna lose. I got this feeling. But i'm not sure if they're gonna Discover Kaiji was his ally. Besides, if the third stage NEVER gets in, i wanna know what trick used Hyoudou & Tonegawa if they made it.

I'm Italian, so forgive me for grammar errors.

My guess is that Kaiji has something in store that will make them win.
And my second guess is that when he get's the money he will get involved in yet another gambling process lol and then he loses it all :p

I was thinking that perhaps the red ring in the 3rd tray is really a magnetic strip perhaps, no idea :D

Illegal gambling seems like really stupid to play. I mean there are THOUSANDS ways to cheat as house, and you can't supervise them because they're illegal. What are you gonna do? Measure if all surfaces are balanced right? That there are no magnets anywhere inside? That all the sides are perfectly geometrical? That all the inside parts are correctly working? That hundreds of balls are all made of 100% same material? Even it should be made sure the odds are in acceptable standarts, to some degree, even for such reward. Etc... (Even legal gambling is a big question mark in such complex machines. Unless standart, widely-accepted machines with 100% trusted manufacturers used, which is still possible to mess with even if risky, it's hard to be sure.) It's guaranteed to lose. Now I'm not sure about real life illegal gambling (probably it's also guaranteed or at least incredibly hard there) but these guys in the anime should just stop trying to beat a cheat. Particularly Kaiji, of course. It's just paddling against the current. Tough I also know that makes about 50% of the show.
I just wish he realized this much earlier and didn't let things go this far. He wouldn't have need to exhaust such effort...

Definitely not as good as underground chinchiro but it's still pretty interesting to see Sakazaki's actions.
Nothing to see here.

I guess Sakazaki may be an honest guy after all...gambling addiction is a bitch though. Hopefully Kaiji has a plan of his own.

Damn...these casino guys are dirty as hell. They always had a plan to oppose Kaiji and his friends D:

Sakazaki might die soon, cause too naive and addicted to gambling :(
