Itou Kaiji, now free of debt but without a penny is leeching himself in Mr.Sakazaki's new house, despite all the flirtings (extreme torment for Kaiji) from Sakazaki's daughter, Mikoko. Sakazaki attempts to kick Kaiji out, even by offering a farewell 'we never knew each other' money of 3000000 yen. While Kaiji ponders himself on the decision, he is visited by Miyoshi and Maeda, two of his 'allies' he had saved from the last part of the series.

When you step into minefield and start playing game that involves huge pain and efforts can you push through?

This will be my first manga review.

Tobaku Datenroku Kaiji, or commonly known as Kaiji Part 3, which gives basic setting for Kaiji series and goes many uncertain roads, which in the end don't save it from falling to be one hell of a gambling arc. It's not certainly bad but it's don't give that Kaiji feel we can sense when reading through series.

Alright, time for my review of the third part of Kaiji. Out of all parts so far, this one has the highest entry barrier as you need to know a little bit of mahjong. They aren't exactly playing mahjong though, but rather a very simplified version of it, so don't be scared off. It's still very enjoyable without the knowledge, which i too lack. My only source of mahjong knowledge comes from Akagi and I'd be lying if i claimed that series really taught me much at all.

= Alright so i am a huge Kaiji fan having read all the Manga to date that i can. I truly love the character and the well developed scenarios,the settings and the general atmosphere of the series. I am gonna go over the good and bad points of this particular serialization of Kaiji.

The story is pretty much the same as past Kaiji arcs except this is not started by force because of a debt he must pay. This time Kaiji makes the decision to try and gamble for a sure win and help his friends in the process. A fairly noble yet self serving plot read more
