You beat me to it by a few seconds, weird.

c&p

Was a good episode, I wonder how Kaiji got into this when he's actually pretty smart.


But anyway, I spotted a mistake. On the second match, the one that Kaiji lost, they used this screen:



But that was actually a moment from the first match, because on this second match Kaji's opponent didn't use paper - on the screenshot you can see him using paper though. Re-using screens is a no-go :P .

I'm confused as to where they can go from here.
They have no cards, 5 stars between 3, and they need more money than their initial stake to be able to pay off their debts.

Kaiji could cut and run with his 3 stars, but then he'd still be in debt.
I don't see what he has to gain by continuing with the other 2 guys though, they are already out of it since they have 1 star each and no cards.

Although, doesn't Kaiji already have their money? 4 million or so, which might be enough to pay off the interest if he skips out now with his 3 stars and no cards (the required to get out).


I wonder also if they will buy cards off people with enough stars to exit, but who haven't used up all their cards yet.

Interesting episode. Nice to see Kaiji win for once. I have a feeling it won't happen for a while. I'm guessing the only thing they can do now is buy cards or stars, as Kaiji doesn't seem to be the type to betray his "friends". I wonder if Akagi will break even from the boat or end up in more debt.

That was fun.
Now i wonder what Kaiji'll do next... He doesn't seem like the kind of guy who would leave those 2 other guys behind.

Intense. but yeah, i think Kaiji should just ditch the two. oh well, it'll be interesting to see how he'll help the other two get out of this.

I'm actually glad he didn't play like Akagi would. We're dealing with a different kind of person here. Kaiji is a born loser. but if he'd lose every match the series would be over by now xD

I loved this episode to bits! Its so damn tense. You kinda expect the creators to screw Kaiji over. But he managed to get into the safe zone. Its going to be interesting to see whats going to happen now. Will he use his "friends" Kinda like he got used. Or is he gonna play it fair and risk getting in even more dept.

Someone build me a time machine!

When I get the chance, I'm definitely going to watch Akagi. This episode was quite intense, and Kaiji's plan was pretty good. It's obvious now that he's going to need to get some more cards in the next episode if he wants to get his new friends out of this mess.

Yeah I think intense is a very good word to describe this series so far.
I'm thinking Kaiji won't bail out on the others, because I think he enjoys this a bit somewhere inside, he's winning for once while all he's been doing otherwise is sit around at home cutting off carhood ornaments for cheap thrills.
Other than that I can't see why he'd have a dilemma dropping them, other than maybe he wouldn't want to abandon someone who's actually weaker than him.
I mean they haven't exactly been loyal to him, one guy is the guy who put him there in the first place and the other guy is the one who just stole one of the cards and ran off on his own.
Anyway can't wait for next episode, definately one of the more interesting animes this fall :)

Thanks De-Jay for my claim picture : ).

Akagi was a gambling prodigy, so its actually refreshing to see someone at the opposite end of the spectrum from him, but winning similarly. We respect Akagi as a higher level, but we respect Kaiji for sharing our own.

Then again, if Kaiji was Akagi, he wouldn't be on this cruise ship to begin with.

Waiting for episode 4.

Very good episode. Love the atmosphere that involves this anime =P
I'm wondering what will happen now, since they have no cards. Will they buy them, or will they ask for cards to the people who've lost all their stars?

ZOMG. Can his two little sidekicks be any more annoying?!? I wanted to just grab an eraser and wipe them out of the show. Ugh.

Otherwise, this show's okay... even though I wasn't expecting Kaiji to be this weepy and such a loser. I was kind of hoping that he'd be more like Akagi -- but I guess I could always just rewatch Akagi if that's what I'm looking for. ;) Well, it's interesting enough anyway... except for the sidekicks. Oh, and the narrator. I could do without him too.

I love it, but they really should cut down on the spoonfeeding and sometimes it was like DUH I figured that out 4 minutes ago... But damn it's good ^^ and yes I agree with the previous, the sidekicks are pathetic.

Interesting, nice to see Kaiji win after making a fool out of himself in the previous episode.

Wonder what he's going to do, since I doubt he would ditch the other two.

I really loved how they explained things in a way that made it easy for anyone to understand and loved how they showed the thought processes of the characters. So much strategy in such a simple game. This show also reminds me of Death Note in a way; the planning and the way things are thought out before execution.

I'm really liking this. I like the imagery the show uses. Never thought Rock, Paper, Scissors could be so intense. I hear Akagi is even better, so I'll be sure to watch it after Kaiji.

Great episode!

Kaiji is safe now but what about the other two? They only have one star each and no cards, and they don't have the money to buy 4 stars.

Or he can "take" the cards of those who have 3 stars or more. Both party will gain from that.

Anyway, I wonder how he'll save his partners. He could quit right now since he has 3 stars and 0 card.

FUCK that first guy who betrayed the group...

But then again, now that Kaiji has 3 stars, part of me would try to run off.

okay..... 5/9 stars and no more cards... which means they can only buy stars now, which wont solve the debt problem... i wonder if they can also buy cards. itd probably be cheaper than buying stars.

I am really loving this series so far... unlike Akagi who was brilliant from the start, it looks like Kanji and his cohorts develop over time. Very interesting to see how it will go, and how they will use their resources to get the four or more stars that they need to win.

So far, pretty nice. I'm not very impressed so far, and it's been somewhat of a snore. Kaiji makes his first victory by deviating from the normal way of thinking. I would see why Kaiji kept the two. Being guaranteed unity and help from one another is a very warm thought, and Kaiji wanted to maintain that pact. Hope it gets better later on.

Well, now he's in a very odd situation, because he could betray his trio right now and win by just waiting. But he won't do it, because he's not an asshole. He's not enough of an asshole to play this game.

Andou is such a freaking retard. Goddamnit, they had 5 card, just enough to get them back to 3 stars each, but he dungoofed hard. Can't believe he'll continue to play for that stupid burden.

If only Kaiji ditched the 2 idiots... One is a fat retard, the other is responsible for him ending up on this ship. Better off going his own way.

Are you sure though, seemed like a pretty big asshole in the beginning of the first episode. Sure, maybe not as bad as the guy who conned him last episode but these two people did screw him over lol.

Andou is definitely an idiot xD

Holy shit, I was so engrossed in it I didn't even notice when the credits were about to roll, that hasn't happened to me for a while now with anime. Wonderful episode, I'm really starting to enjoy Kaiji's character.
