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.

So, I'm baffled by such low score of this anime. Maybe people disappointed it's not Kaiji? Maybe the manga is better? I don't know, but what I do know is that this shows is SO FUNNY. It's a really odd show, "an unexceptional story about an exceptional man". This is a show about gags on corporatism, management life, and just overall a bizarre exaggerated slice of life in a diabolic workplace that is Teiai. It's definitively not for everyone, but I'm having a blast, try watching this show knowing it's pretty lighthearted and doesn't take itself too serious. There's some good humor here.

Ok this is my first review here so go easy on me.(also it's short)

Finally, after years of waiting madhouse gave us something related to the atmosphere of kaiji and akaji.
i don't know why it has such a low score, maybe because Chuukan Kanriroku Tonegawa definitely isn't a show for everyone.
There's no crazy psychological duels like in Kaiji. It seems more like a corporate slice of life with dry humour about the struggles of middle management.
But to me it's one of the best anime of this season.

one thing i didn't like is when they changed the narrator it was such a let down..
i think this is 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 till 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

No psychological game
No story
Unfunny comedy
Noting like Kaiji
Dropped after episode 2

One of the worst show in this season. It is basically just a parody/comedy show, but a bad one. Even Overlord 3 has way better comedy, and I watch Overlord 3 for action/story, but even the comedy part is more funny than Tonegawa

So, it not just comedy show, but fails at comedy. My enjoyment was like 0/10, there is ABSOLUTELY no enjoyment.

ANd some reviewers here are saying that is underrated. LOL Maybe they have different taste than me when it comes to comedy. Some of anime that has lower rating than this read more
