THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Not much going on this ep, just a setup for the new arc to come.
Endou is back, and we are introduced to a new character, Sahara (I wasn't really fond of his voice btw). And this ep actually features a FEMALE character! Too bad she won't be appearing in the future, but yeah......there you go. The only young female we will be able to see. They even added extra lines for her. She had like only one line in the manga.

Wow I didn't think of it up til now, but where have all the females been throughout Kaiji? Are there no female gamblers!?
Good episode, as always! I like the new guy they introduced, and I can't wait for the next one.

Thanks De-Jay for my claim picture : ).

This was a really great episode and poor Kaiji just can't seem to catch a break. Wonder if we will see any of the characters from the boat in this new gambling game like Funai or even........ANDOU!!

When I went to update my anime list I saw that they had Kaiji listed as only 13 episodes now. That makes me sad as I don't want this show to end.

I am absolutely sure Kaiji won't end in 13 eps. There will be a LOT more awesomeness ,nastiness and suffering to come, and no sudden endings are allowed. Besides, if you go to the Madhouse official site, it's listed as 26 eps :)
Now for me, I wish it was 52......

edit: here's the link- http://www.madhouse.co.jp/works/2007-2006/works_tv_kaiji.html

I assure you, they won't end it in 13 eps, because the story is already complete and there is an ending (continuing on to part 2). Of course I'm assuming there will be a season 2 as well(I dunno when), which will feature 2nd part of the manga. The 3rd part is currently serialized and on-going.

Maybe it will end in 13 eps and there will be a season 2. I would be satisfied with that, I just don't want the entire Kaiji story to end in 13, lol.

How come Kaiji only has 6~ million in debt after the Rock Paper Scissor ship thing? He borrowed 10 million and he lost all of it. That plus the interest on it, shouldn't it be over 10 million?

He kept some of the money that he took from Andou and Furuhata. They had his 6 million plus the 10 (+) million from selling two stars. He spent 8 million on Ishida's star, so he had 8 milllion left to pay of the 14 million debt.

Is it so bad to pay it in 16 years! I mean people got mortgage with more time on it.

Oh Kaiji you double your debt last time, think about what will happen this time.

The change of scenery is welcome, still the episode was kinda predictable, I knew the blondie was the thief, exactly like I knew the phone number was his... anyway I wonder what game Kaiji will have to play next.

16 years is not that bad. If you think about it getting sold off into slavery would probably be better than the life Kaiji is living.

Kaiji should start acting like a selfish prick or he won't be able to pay his debts forever! They'll get bigger and bigger that even a gamble night won't suffice if he keeps going like this. I hope he doesn't help or save anyone this time. Tough I'm not sure what else can be done with this anime if he clears his debts, in the end, the genre is "Game"...

Easy answer : Kill the bad guy, take the 20M he just put under your nose and fly off to another country. End of story.

Ok so this anime rocks so far but I'm having trouble understanding some of the finer details of the rock paper scissors arc.

Firstly, how does winning the game with 3 stars benefit you at all if you don't make any extra money? For example, way back when Funai came up with the plan to tie with Kaiji so they both keep their 3 stars, wouldn't that just put them both in more debt since they don't have any extra stars to trade for cash to pay their existing debt plus the loan borrowed from the ship?

Secondly, how was Kaiji not forced to do labor for the debt collectors. I thought that if you don't have 3 stars + 0 cards, you're a "loser" and forced to go into hard labor for a couple of years. Well, Kaiji gave away his stars to the other man that he met behind the mirror meaning he had 0 so how was he let free?

Lastly, Kaiji's new debt is roughly 6 million. As far as I'm concerned the number is completely off. His debt before coming on to the ship was roughly 3 million. He borrowed 10 million and used most of the 4 hours, meaning he almost accumulated 40% interest. Wouldn't this push his debt to around 17 million? Unless for some reason the anime didn't show him keeping some money because it seemed like he used all of it to trade for the last star he needed.

Thanks to anyone who's willing to help answer these questions. I literally couldn't find these answers anywhere else.

Goddamnit Kaiji, you fell into the trap again... On the other, that's probably what he wanted. After all, what's the point in living such a lame life for 16 years.

Also, I kinda laughed that the man he saved seem to be part of the new game. You never escape the mafia, so they say...

Nice set up episode for the upcoming arc. Looking forward to what the gambling will be.

Mixed feeling about the blonde guy. He pretty much looks like hes preying on Kaiji in silence

Would they bother though ? 20M is nothing to these guys. It's quite a measly sum for highway criminals, convert it to dollars and you'll see.

It's all about keeping rep though. The fact that some no name punk killed and robbed one of their employees while on the job would probably leave a sour taste. If word got around, others might start thinking of doing the same.

Looks like Kaiji slightly regrets saving the old man because he ended up in a crappy job with more debt than ever with another geezer bossing him around and even holding his pay lol

This new guy sure likes to play around. Almost cost Kaiji a million yen lmao. He's in for a heap of trouble once he finds out how much pressure he'll go under playing their game though. Back into the rabbit hole... will he erase his debt or dive in deeper into the depths while saving those who are doomed?

ayy this blonde guy is pretty charismatic and smart huh, i thought he was a ditz. it's irritating that he's joining in on the get rich fast schemes when he has no debt. he doesn't understand what kaiji has gone through, really yes i do understand that you want something more to life but don't fall under the illusion... i'd say live a normal life, dangerous business out here.

another grand episode, another adventure just waiting to happen! i seriously can't name even one episode where kaiji (as in the show itself) and kaiji have disappointed me, i hope it doesn't begin anytime soon.
