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.

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

As a Kaiji fan, I was initially hyped when it was announced we’ll be getting more Kaiji. However, that excitment slowly faded away as soon as I started watching this series.

This Kaiji spin off is shit. There’s no plot. It’s basically overdramatic, forced comedy on boring scenes and trying to make them funny. It repeats the same joke for too long sometimes, e.g. remembering the men in black’s name dragged on for 3 episodes. Comedy is subjective, but I find it hard to believe anyone finds this funny. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever laughed once while watching this show.

This show is pretty fun, but it mostly stays away from the story of it's alternative"kaiji" but it's still great to see the other personalities of the main villains instead of their evil acts from the original.
So far, I'm watching each episode the moment it appears in vrv.
The story is also pretty entertaining of how a middle manager can also be stressed out of obeying their main boss and taking control of their lower ranks to satisfy the main boss also too.
So far, I recommend this to a person who wants some good comedy, but if you wanted some more of kaiji, read more
