A direct sequel to Tobaku Datenroku Kaiji, picking up immediately after Part 3.

After his tremendous victory in 2-Player Mahjong against the villainous President, Muraoka Takashi, Kaiji is being driven home by Kazuya, the son of Chairman Hyoudou. However, in the car, Kazuya asks Kaiji if he would be interested in one more gamble that night, and Kaiji accepts. What surprises lie in store for our dear Kaiji, and what will the gamble be?!

Kazuya-hen is quite possibly the most divisive part of Kaiji. Everyone seems to either love it or hate it. Personally, it is my favorite part because of how it subverts the tropes of the series.

For one, the fact that it is 3 volumes shorter than the typical Kaiji part is greatly to its benefit. I don't think there are many people that would argue that long arcs like 17 steps, the Bog, and One Poker aren't at least a little drawn out and while Kazuya-hen does drag in a few places, like any Kaiji arc, the pacing is not quite as bad as the previously ...

Kaiji part 4 was very disappointing for me. It started out strong with Kaiji again pursuing his grudge against Teiai by setting out to beat the founder's son in a gamble. Kaiji being introduced to his grave stone by said son really cemented him as someone intimidating and to be feared throughout the arc.

Throughout the beginning we also continue to learn more about Kazuya and what makes him tick and his whole motivation to engage in his sadistic gambles.

However, the characterization comes to a stand-still when we are introduced to the actual gamble of this part. It does not even involve Kaiji but three ...
