Fukumoto is awesome. He's my favorite manga-ka and I am a rabid Kaiji fan so this is kind of awesome.

And he does like quite boss in that uni.

OK, the real question is, how can a scammer like Kaiji is in position to promote Anti-phishing Scam Champaign? How is that even make any sense to anyone at all?

My reaction.

Kaiji and apparently every other FKMT series seem to put gamblers and swindlers and their supposedly superior intelligence on such a high pedestal. The premise of his stories are basically the more sneaky you are with your swindling ways, the more you win and the cooler you are. And now he's using those same characters to promote anti-phishing scams?! orz

If you get phished you end up working in an underground mine.

Sounds like a good incentive.

To think I stood in that exact same spot, figuring out where what was on that map, in Zushi.

I've been to holy ground.
