Andou FTL. I knew he should have given all the stars to Furuhata.

Hopefully an Andou ass-kicking ensues.

Yeap, i was thinking about that too. And y did he gave all his money away, is like giving ppl incentives to leave him

Holy fucking shit! Greatest back-stab ever. I can't imagine how that must feel; to willingly place your bets on such a shaky hope, not wanting to believe it could possibly go wry because you want to have trust in humanity, and with so much riding on it (fucking slavery!), then to inevitably have your hopes crushed by something that should have been so obvious. One of the most powerful episodes I've ever seen.

I want to kill Andou and Kaiji really cries alot, i understand how it feels when people are stabbing you in the back X.x
Life takes on a neat simplicity. Time ceases to have any meaning. When it is dark, you go to bed, and when it is light again you get up, and everything in between is just in between. It’s quite wonderful, really.

Was the nudity really necessary?

Never trusted Andou, I knew he would betray Kaiji, surprised Furuhata didn't betray him as well.

Totally saw this coming, though I was expecting Furuhata to betray him as well. Great episode either way.

Great fucking episode...up until this I wasn't all that crazy about this series but this episode sold me completely. I think the vast majority of the people on this thread would probably do the same as Andou, unfortunately. Felt terrible for Kaiji, his naivety and innocence got the best of him here. It's interesting how honest to god morals can hurt a person...

And, lol, I bet most of the people complaining about the nudity here probably would have no problem what so ever if it was females naked.

If anything.....Andou should've been the one to go to the "other room", he betrayed the group at the beginning and he should've been the one to pay.

FUCK, Kaiji is far too trusting...

I feel like Andou is a complete idiot. He only needs 3 stars to go to the correct room so why wouldn't he give up those remaining two? All that really matters is paying back his borrowed money now.

Andoooooouuuuuu!!!!! Kisamaaaaaaaa!!!!!!! Arrrrrgggggghhhhhh!! I want to kill this bastard. >:O

Not going to lie tho. I'd probably do the same thing in his situation. They've only known each other for 4 hours. Although only if is it was $5 million US or Euros. 5 million yen is like only $50000. $50000 a piece isnt worth ruining someones life.

Not sure how to rate this one.

On the upside, the wonderful exaggerated expression of dismay near the end was priceless and made me laugh, but on the downside, I could not fathom why on earth Kaiji would sacrifice himself.

Keeping the three stars and having the other two "burn off" the excess cards in draws was perfectly possible. After that, yes, the odd card would remain, but there should be a by-law which allows it to not count since it was someone destroying three cards that made them uneven.

In any case, even if he did HAVE to sacrifice himself, perhaps because of the one odd card and not thinking of getting the others to draw down the other thirty two pairs of cards before the time ran out, he could have kept his three stars and asked for special dispensation when the time ran out, as there was no way he could end up with an even, and thus zero, cards.

Anyhow, now that I write it out, I understand why he did what he did, but, it was still not clear that he had no choice... loopholes were being found all of the time and this whole revival loophole was the hardest one to exploit. The odd-card one would have been the easiest and more reasonable, but then I guess there was no excuse for full male nudity.

Which also, was a downside for me... but, you know, to each their own.

So overall I rated it 4/5 but I didn't enjoy it at all until the end made it totally hilarious. Andou, you bastard. From the time they were rushed by the crowd buying stars, the exaggerated drama of the last few minutes made up for all the shortcomings of before.
