LOL guys this is based on a pachinko game, not about a pachinko game.

Anyway, I like bakumatsu period anime, and it's Monkey Punch. Is this already in the DB?

Well after what Kaiji managed to make pachinko into, I am excited for this. Gambling animes/manga always gets me excited as long as they're trying to be logic and cool and not fanservice shit

Monkey Punch for the win. I need this to be another Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna.

An anime involving casinos and 19th century Kyoto's red light district? Sounds good to me.
