Synopsis

Itou Kaiji is a bum who steals car emblems and slashes tires on what seems to be a regular basis. This routine changes one day when he is paid a visit by a man in a trench-coat. Once the two get talking, it seems that the visitor (Calling himself Endou) is a debt collector. The reason for his visit is an unpaid loan which kaiji had previously co-signed for a work-mate (Furuhata Takeshi). The original loan was 30000 yen and once Takeshi had disappeared, the loan then fell on Kaiji.

Kaiji is then told of a way to clear the interest compounded debt (which stood at 3,850,000 yen), which involved getting on a boat with others in his position. Once on the boat the debtors would then have to gamble with loaned money, which would end with a few winning, and others getting into deeper debt and having to work to pay of their debts. After some coercing kaiji accepts a position on the boat, in order to clear himself and make a bit of money as well...

Gambling Apocalypse Kaiji is the Stardust Crusaders of FKMT. Since it was the first of his works to get animated, it's more often than not the one everybody has seen first or the only one they've seen. It's also the only one to get a video game adaptation (to my knowledge, ignoring pahcinko), however that's Japan exclusive.

Now, that's not to say it's bad or boring (like Stardust Crusdaers), in fact, it has very good reason to be someone's favourite FKMT work or Kaiji Part. It has arguably one of the best gambles in the series, Limited Janken, with one of the most memorable endings in read more
