Well now that was an interesting turn of events, his hand must really hurt.

I wanna punch something as well after being stupid enough to watch the preview.

But -- good episode. Friggin' old man is wack. He has no sympathy for anyone but his own pleasures. Kaiji finally worked out the means to their successful wins. Wrecking his hand will definitely vex that system, especially if it is monitoring his vitals. I love this series, always the unexpected.

That was an awesome episode. Kaiji's revelation, the chairman's reaction to Tonegawa's loss, Kaiji figuring out how Tonegawa won all along. Just pure greatness.
When he was about to say how much he wagered i figured he would go with something like 2 or 3(he would still be safe... right?) but when he asked how far the device could go i knew right away he was gonna go all the way. I definitely can't wait to see what exactly his plan is. I have a little idea about what it might be, but as always i'm probably wrong...

When Kaiji asked about the limit, I was like 'Yus! Go, Kaiji!' And we're back in the game. Last couple of episodes just felt like Kaiji was losing everything completely. Nice to see some courage coursing through his veins again.

Anyway, awesome episode yet again.

The reason for the window punching is absurd, yet awesome. But I won't talk about it here. It was a great ep, especially since Kaiji's getting some support from the other have-nots.

Intense episode (like always). Kaiji's gonna open up a can of whoopass on Tonegawa. Or rather the old man will, after Kaiji wins. :D

Wasn't it a mirror he broke? They were in a bathroom after all. o_O Well if it was, then the 7 years of bad luck he'll get won't really help him in the game lol.

Oh yeahhh... Finally time to see Kaiji kick some Tonegawa ass. I loved the song that played as he punched through the mirror.

I thought I had some pretty shitty bosses in my time but no one compares to the old chairman when he gets pissed off :)

I'm not surprised they were cheating. This was a lot more intense than the last episode. I was kind of wondering how they would stretch this game out over so many episodes, but it seems a lot better than the first game.

I also think that Kaiji will use the mirror shards to screw up his vitals, I predict that


On another note, watching Tonegawa get beat down was priceless. It's nice to see him sweat after putting Kaiji through hell for the last couple of episodes.

Oh my god, never imagined they were cheating *naive*
Seriously, the way kaiji discoveres the cheat was awesome. When the boss was pissed at tonegawa I just though he was crazy, never would think it was because of a misread >.<

I just can't wait to see what was about that mirror thing. but i have an idea of what can happen.

You and me both. It's painful waiting for the next episode, especially when Triad feels like messing with people's heads.

That's what I figure too, though I don't think he'd really need to do it every time...

the issue is that the preview has his entire face cut up...so I believe he's going to use it as a diversionary tactic much the same way tonegawa was talking to Kaiji.

LOL Kaiji won't turn emo next episode, he is like the pure essence of 'gar' - Those are 'manly' tears I tell ya :)

I mean, one look at the mullet and you just know he plays drums for a Led Zepplin cover band...;)

Guess Tonegawa isn't the devil we all thought him out to be.....he is just a cheating bastard!!! I guess it doesn't come as that much of a surprise though as we aren't dealing with the nicest people in the world here.

Episode 19 was another awesome episode and I've said it before and I'll say it again. The atmosphere displayed when Kaiji was choosing what card to play was 2nd to none. Truly well done. I hope episode 20 is out quicker than it took 19 to get released as it looks to be epic.

Kaiji is finally starting to feel like Kaiji again, ever since the beam walking stuff it has been nothing but psychological bs and we haven't really seen him using his head to outsmart anyone.

Well, a common way to beat a lie detector is to make yourself feel pain to screw up your heart rate, perspiration, and such... I thought Kaiji was going to be doing something similar, but his blood-covered face in the preview for the next episode makes me wonder.

Man I saw the image of kaiji's face with blood before I even watched this episode. And I was bummed because it looked like the drill went in or something. After watching this episode I honestly don't know whats going to happen ^^ GIVE ME 20 NOW

Wow...

Awesome, though he also may be using the mirror for reflective things?


And also, as I said before, losing the ear drum doesn't mean he looses his hearing- ^^.

Well according to tonegawa.

Well, the whole theme of a great mind game between Tonegawa and Kaiji just went out of the window. *sigh* I knew he was cheating from around the Episode 17 mark, but I didn't want to believe it. This was another great episode, but I wish the show could move faster at times.

Another intense, and awesome, episode =P
I wonder what kind of plan Kaiji has for the mirror in broke (probably something to do with his blood, and his vitals).

God, that was intense. I had a feeling they were cheating with that ear drill. The chairman is freaking crazy.

I want to see why he punched the glass.

So by injuring himself he tries to create irregularities in his physical condition to full the device?
Anyway it was an interesting revelation, the moment Kaiji said that he's the one seeing his cards I knew sth was up with that device on his ear, still a great if extremely sadistic plan from the bad guys and well-laid too, the only the things that were a bit too much was the acuracy with which Tonegawa could tell Kaiji what he was thinking a few episodes ago...
