Psychological anime at its best. And Tonegawa is a freaking poet.

Ishida and Sahara surprised me.

I think Kaiji is partly responsible for what happened if he didn't accept and encouraged everyone that wouldn't have happen. This time he didn't listen to the voice of reason but instead let his greed get in the way.

Rest in peace Ishida-san.

That's it.
This show goes to my favorites and gets a straight up 10. Very near perfection.

Da feels in this episode with Ishida and his wife. Instead of screaming I want to live he only thought of his wife. And I cant believe he fell to his death while olding in his screams. That must have been torture. And the damn Narrator is on point with his narration.

I totally thought Sahara was going to fall once he saw Ota's ghost but luckily he made it across. I cant believe he actually just ran across that. Sahara must have used up his entire life's luck. That was crazy.

Wow, that was utterly depressing :|
Ishida death was so freaking sad. He was so pathetic, but he was also the ultimate human.

In the end, everything revolve around the zawa. You are zawa and you end zawa. Zawa zawa.

Intense episode. Couldnt believe, Sahara and Kaiji were the ones who remained. All others just fell like that, damn. Love the psychology in this anime too. 5/5

That's truth man, we all walk on each our own lonely path.

Kudos to Sahara so op he survived that jump. I don't think in real life you can do that.

goddamn this comment is 7 years old. anyway, i think what that guy meant is that if kaiji didn't go for this ludicrous trial (he was the first one to agree), maybe no one else would have

so much anxiety this episode omg

If you guys need an aggressive dose of numbing medicine to recover from watching Kaiji, watch Aria afterwards. They are like the opposite ends of the anime spectrum lol.

The Grim Reaper circling everyone ever since the beginning of the episode made me remember the the really eerie feel left by the last episode. Ishida freaking out because of 12's suicide becoming the catalyst for 5 others to fall to their deaths was as horrifying as it was guiltily funny for me (That dude dragging that other dude down with him after dancing lol pls).

Tonegawa has a point despite being quite blunt. People who agree to do something important to them shouldn't really change their mind once they're already doing it since it would render their talk worthless. Everyone walking their own narrow path in life but supporting and getting supported by others through something as little as their very presence letting them know that they're in this together despite being far away was a thought provoking perspective.

Ishida really died... He had the courtesy to force himself to not make a sound while falling to not freak Kaiji out. I hope he gets his final wish fulfilled. Sahara made a daring dash and actually succeeded omg.

That was "powerful" episode. I actually find its message rather interesting and kind of encouraging. But don't forget that at the end everyone falls, no one knows what is beyond the bridge, nor what is below it.

This episode was unbelievable.

Very few shows have made me this tense and emotional. When Kaiji turned around and saw Ishida just... gone, my heart dropped.

That was unbearable to watch and indescribable, I'm still shaking seriously this show is so fucking good, I don't know if Sahara can make it cause I have a bad feeling about this.

R.I.P. Ishida, you were a great human.

This one made me straight-up cry...twice, I shed manly (err...womanly) tears from this episode.

The first when Ishida was telling Kaiji not to worry about him falling because he led a meaningless life and then Kaiji turning around to see him just...gone...without a sound because he covered his mouth so Kaiji wouldn't hear...my god, the tears started running like a faucet from my eyes.

And then again when Kaiji realized he felt comforted from Sahara's presence. (I really loved the speech from the narrator about how every human walks a lonely road and that all we have is communication in order to connect with each other...that really hit me).

I never thought this show would be so emotionally intense. It's incredible.

YES! The human being is the hope in itself and thus manifests it.
