Oh man, once again the group falls into some trouble. Very intense. Though the next episode suggest some kind of problem for Funai. I'll be looking forward to it.

A good episode again, for the same reason I've been enjoying the show as a whole thus far. Although I'm not sure if its refusal to let Kaiji's plans come to fruition by throwing unexpected obstacles in his way is a stremgth or a weakness. On one hand, it keeps it from being predictable, but on the other it keeps it tiresomely bogged down by Kaiji being in a permanently bad situation. And the reshuffle suggests that all that time we spent watching him do the buyout may have been wasted. Hopefully, that's not the case.

Personally, I think Kaiji's response to the latest predicament of Funai proposing a card reshuffle (very clever of him I should add) should have been obvious - hide a huge portion of the cards to make it look like he never performed a buyout while offering a standard hand of cards to the group each. This way, everyone in the group is under equal suspicion, because any one of them could be hiding cards to try and cheat the reshuffle system. They could strip-search everyone to be sure, but I think that might take a little longer than 14 minutes.

I love this show!

It's just so dramatic. I'm glad Kaiji didn't take Funai's star, watching that scene, I was like, "No! Don't take it it, idiot!".

14 minutes left in the game. If this is a 13-episode series, it means there's 7 episodes left, which calculates to an average of 2mins of game time per episode.

Realistically, how much can happen in two minutes??!

Funai is totally an ass. I'd have done more than just shove him. I wonder how the buy/sell phase will work. It was neat just how thoroughly Kitami got waxed.

According to the MADHOUSE official site, Kaiji is a total of 26 episodes.
And of course,with that length, more than limited RPS would be coming up :)

Oh man, another great episode. Every time Kaiji comes up with a smart plan, someone outsmarts him with an even better tactic. Funai FTL.

nice avatar there.. [looks like my profile pic ;)]

I think a lot can happen though even in that little time. It's funny though that it seems like Kaiji's plans are guaranteed to go wrong.

Funai fails at life, but that tactic of his was fairly slick, if completely uncalled for.

Then again, he is a "Repeater," which says an awful lot about his character.

Wow, Funai is really a bastard and I can't wait to see him take a fall (I pray he doesn't make it off the ship)

It's almost like he is just there to make sure Kaiji doesn't win.

The pacing in ep 5 and 6 has been way too slow. They could've put them both together and had one rollercoaster of an ep.

I am loving this show more and more. Personally, I really like the pace and how Kaiji's plans keep on getting screwed up. It's exciting watching him develop from the total loser he was into someone who can really think for himself. And his plan with Kitami worked, so it's not like his ideas never pan out. I can't wait to see what's in the next room. I'm assuming it'll be another gamble... As for Funai, I'm eager to see Kaiji crush him! Not too soon though.

A resuffle yeah but that still means that everyone(but Kaiji & co) will end up with way more cards to get rid of than he had before... and damn Kaiji is an altruist idiot, instead of giving them his money, he should just betray those two morons he has with him and take the star Funai offered him.

Lol I actually think there can be a second game, or maybe games out of the ship. It would be funny and kick-ass.

Kaiji should've taken that star and ditched those 2 fools. Andou is currently sitting at the top of my most hated characters of ALL TIME. Yes, i think he is even worse than the guy from to love ru

All he needs to do is give about 10 rock and then when the cards are redistributed use the rest of his rocks. Funai might call him out on it but he should take the risk.

Fuckin' Funai. At one point, karma gonna strike him down.

But all in all, Kaiji, and mostly his group is in deep shit, because his teamate lack of any ounce of subtlety and strategy. They may betray him. Honor mean nothing when your life is on the line. Though, that may be the flaw in Funai bet. He bet on the fear he pressured on these guy and the fact that he based their alliance on honor, but I'm pretty sure that none of them give a shit about honor.

And here I was thinking it would end here and they'd move on to another game. (I mean, there has to be another game, right? 26 episodes of one game of paper-rock-scissors would be ridiculous.)

The tides of the battle just can't lean on one side, can it? This is getting more intense than ever~

Damn you, Funai. Not only did you manage to gather every remaining player into one group, ya also flipped Kaiji's strategy on its back. I'm curious on how they'll get out of this in 15 minutes.

the desperation... the huge amount of trust that kaiji gave those two, i felt it. how strong he must be, despite being pit against stress for the possibility of losing, to decline funai's offer. he's a smart man, definitely, but his odds are not 100% lucky all the time. there's such a great dose of the reality in a game like this - simple right? yet it's easy to lose, easy to cheat, easy to win, everything is thrown on the table. raw human emotions are more than ever apparent. i don't want to say that this anime is a masterpiece so early into the series even though the word is budging at me, since it is truly awing.
