That was my 11 (?) episodes in opinion and it changed quite a bit. Kaiji has an excellent portrayal of cynic evil, it just takes a bit of time to really get into it. They play with deep taboo anxieties that wake from the social pressure and that a let's call him "deemed failure" such as Kaiji gets confronted with daily and put him into this greedy situation to toy with him over a contrived bait of hope for a better, stable life. It's psychologic evil, truly makes you hate those guys. They, especially Hyoudou know what grinds his gears. They know what hurts him, what influences him. The life or death situation made it click for me as in what the show is actually going for. It's accurate and really deep-cutting at times and yeah, it's really obvious at the bridge part that it's tragically optimistic but it doesn't sweet talk the situation, that's what makes it hit home. I simply had a lot of trouble getting into the setting, it was really hit and miss with the gambles for me, I was simply frustrated with it at that point because it was really captivating for me one episode and terribly off-putting in the next one, Kaijis decision making can be awful.

As a final statement, I understand it a lot better now that I've finished it but didn't quite enjoy myself for all kinds of reasons, most of them personal or nit picky. It's hard to reverse something negative, it's a clear indication of quality. My "critique" on basilevs profile was unfair. But it's a bit hard to end up enjoying something you've hated before, see where I'm coming from? I'm not an unbiased source to discuss Kaiji with my prior attitude towards it, even if there's a lot more thought behind it now and I formed an ACTUAL opinion. My feelings towards it couldn't possibly be more complicated. I don't regret watching it.

I see it's one of your favs and I get why, take it with a grain of salt. And yeah, I agree Kaiji does it better than Devilman overall. It feels more personal.

"President Valentine, you said you want to see me fuck you up?"

He-he you just made life easier for me!

I was in a very deep post-Gintama depression and couldn't watch any series for the longest time (after the season 5).
I watched a bunch of things since then, and until now nothing really gives me much joy, not as much as Gintama did.

I'm definitely gonna try JoJo, thanks for advice!

It's not my fault MAL's backend has a 70 character limit on titles, man. The description fit the full idea: "getting a remake or making a comeback."

Nice! Imo, that was the peak of Gintama's anime. Of course SA was better, but the animation did not let up at all, it was honestly the perfect adaption.

Lol, I watched that before Death Parade so I had no clue what even was happening. It was great movie(?) but the premise was so random & unusual.

How's the JoJo manga?

When there are only 5 Episodes left and there are like 3 big Fights left in that Arc.
But I am really looking foward to the background from Kamui and Umibouzo
YorozuyaSeele Feb 24, 2017 2:32 AM
Yeah, we will probably get for that an extra Season
YorozuyaSeele Feb 23, 2017 1:29 PM
Well just saw you in one comment from a friend. And checked it out.
Yep Gintama is the best Anime of all Time.

I even use the term Godly Perfect for that Anime. I just love it so much, and can't describe it better than this.
Oshinomo Feb 23, 2017 1:00 PM
Well not much has changed, so still top-notch.

Definitely Yoshiwara in Flames

'Course I am. Isn't in my favorites for nothing
SMikotoRayearth Feb 17, 2017 4:50 PM
Yup! :3 It's one of my favorite modern series now. :3
SMikotoRayearth Feb 17, 2017 2:57 PM
That's because I haven't gotten around yet to add all my anime and manga entries yet. But eventually I will! :3
