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 read more

This part totally surpassed all of my expectations its probably better than the first three parts.
Kaiji has always been a good gambling Anime/Manga the reason its gambling scenes was so dense was the tension; characters and the risks they took, their motivations and philosophies but this time it crushes its genre, the first three part was focusing on gambling I have no issues with that since its beautifully done but it was focusing on the gambling side of the story sure there was character motivations and philosophies but it was just a device to make the gambling even more thrilling this read more

Despite a deliciously devious death-trap being the focus of this entire arc, I can't help but feel that this was the weakest arc in the Kaiji series so far. It is still a good, fairly suspenseful read, but this arc displays some rather uncharacteristic shortcomings which are disappointing to see in a series as excellent as Kaiji.

Kazuya, whom you will remember as a spectator in the Minefield Mahjong game, now invites Kaiji as a spectator for a new, three-player death-trap; the Salvation Game. More on the game later. This entire arc is built around a central theme, which is the nature of friendships. Kazuya believes read more

The way things are going, when Sakazaki told Kaiji that he peaked during the pachinko arc and that he should stop gambling, that was a metacommentary, since the two arcs that have followed have both been worse than the last. Still, it’s not bad, it’s still packed to the brim with the old Kaiji flavour that’s always been there, but you don’t need to be a very harsh critic to come to the same conclusion as I did, he’s not even doing anything this time around, why would they honestly have thought I’d respond positively to that?

Overall, I’d argue the biggest issue with Kazuya-Hen is read more
