Chuukan Kanriroku Tonegawa is a spin-off of the Kaiji series, which follows Tonegawa, the right hand man of Kazutaka Hyoudou, the president of the Teiai Corporation and owner of numerous gambling tournaments. After Hyoudou is getting bored with his life, he orders Tonegawa to organize a so called "game of death" as it is his and his subordinate's job to keep the president in a good mood. Tonegawa must cooperate with his subordinates in order to make the president happy and what follows is a humorous story of his interactions with his subordinates and other characters of the Kaiji series.

It seems that a lot of poor people dislike this anime. That makes sense since a lot of these jokes are for rich people only. But I'm a nice guy, so I'll personally try to explain the humor of this show to you losers; hopefully this insight penetrates through your loser brains. Why listen to me? A few years ago I made a startup with my bros and now I'm a rich as fuck CEO watching anime all day meanwhile you losers are still plugging away in your 9-5s. Why I love this show? It's funny as fuck - if you're rich.

So, a lot of people here seem to dislike Middle Manager Tonegawa.

I didn't like it either, based on the first episode of course. I did enjoy the 3 chapters of the manga that got scanlated, but half an episode of summaries about Kaiji isn't a good way to start your anime, in fact, they should've used the 20 second summary from the second episode, rather than going over the plot.

The actual meat and potatoes of the first episode, wasn't too good. It was the name bit from the first chapter, just extended a bit. Fun, but rather dull.

But then, that second episode dropped. Then the read more

Chuukan Kanriroku Tonegawa is a non-canon spin-off series to Kaiji. Written not by the master himself, but by two of his die hard fans. The series focuses around a man named Tonegawa, who was introduced in the first anime season.

From its settings, CKT is the polar opposite of Fukumoto Nobuyuki's (the author of Kaiji) gambling series for the reason that the main lead is not a person taking part in the gambling games, but instead working for the man who is behind these events. For that matter, recognizing this series to be even part of the same universe with Kaiji would be impossible if read more

"This is a story of a lone man who struggles between his employer, the president, and his own employees, the men in black".

Let me start by saying that this show is NOTHING like Kaiji. But is it a bad thing? It was stated since the very first day - they wanted to tone it down. It came out to be a great parody of the original series therefore I wouldn't recommend it to anybody who didn't see at least the first season as most of the jokes are just exaggerated situations, hype for something stupid etc.

I was quite disappointed at first - they got rid read more
