did kaiji play his higher up card there to mindfuck kazuya? the madman

I really appreciate that you've switched to a 2 chapters at a time model. Even if you release less frequently because of it, I think that it really helps to mitigate the feeling of FKMT's bad pacing. (because the pacing is my only major complaint with this series)

What Chang is saying in chapter 166 is wrong.

it's a fairly simple gambit, not very hard to understand, but I think Kazuya's reaction is the focal point here

he's never seen someone so willing to throw their lives away, so for kaiji to win like that has completely shattered his worldview.

i understand that his reaction to it was the point of it but 2 whole chapters of him re-explaining the gamble felt a bit much when like i said, maybe 10 pages were of his worldview actually shattering

 

 

You're surprised by this? FKMT manga has always been about explaining the intricacies of the gambles so that even those who aren't thinking 2 steps ahead can understand how deep the logic goes. Leaving this unexplained would leave a lot of readers scratching their heads, especially if they read the chapters all in one go without having a week to ponder things between chapters.

it wasnt a complex gamble by any means and it had already been explained by kazuya when he was thinking over the possibilities, all kaiji did was confirm that he was infact a crazy gambler... for 2 chapters.... in a manga that is already several years behind the official release

 

EDIT: not to say i dont understand the work put into translating it but i cant help but feel frustrated when i see 2 new chapters and they are just explaining the gamble that had already been explained

its almost as though fkmt doesnt think his readers understood the gamble kaiji took so he needs to dedicate another 2 fucking chapters to explaining it with maybe 10 pages of kazuyas character actually developing

oh boy for a moment i thought this was dragon ball z XD.

is this updated consistent weekly?

See ya 20 years laters at conclusion

Wait, if kaiji can bet mario and chang lives, does that mean kazuya can bet his minions lives as well?

 

Given that it would require both minion(s) willing to actually die for Kazuya and for Kaiji to actually accept it when the only thing he cares about is the money, I would say no. Probably not.

Wait, if kaiji can bet mario and chang lives, does that mean kazuya can bet his minions lives as well?

Kazuya still has an overwhelming life advantage so his best move would be to call. Losing one more life would be preferable to the possibility of letting Kaiji play and win with his down card.

 

We saw how much the game shifted in Kazuya's favor when he successfully bluffed Kaiji with a worse card earlier in the game and with Kaiji on the brink of defeat that's the last thing he should want to happen, especially with Kaiji carrying his up card over to the next round in that scenario.

he played his down card, didn't he? the absolute madman

Gotta remember that their using half of 3 separate decks, not just one. So there could be up to 12 aces for all we know. There's really no way to count the cards due to the way they arranged the deck their using. We only know the maximum is 12 for each card, but we have no clue how many there actually are.

 

Ah, I forgot and just assumed they'd be using a standard deck. With just 2 players, 156 cards (and only 2 dealt per turn) is pretty excessive but knowing the author it's probably going to come into play somehow later on.

With all 4 aces played the two is a guaranteed loss in any showdown and so if there's ever a time for Kaiji to free himself from it, it's now, especially with Kazuya still blinded by rage over the bond his opponents have forged.

 

That being said it's still a completely insane play, especially given the current stakes. Which is probably why it's going to work.

Kaiji just played the 2 didn't he?

You don't read (most) Fukumoto works for high-paced action, man, you read it for the utter delight in slowing down seconds to a bouquet of expectations and hope. If you want to feel high speed excitement you can watch grass dry.

 

Earlier FKMT works were actually much faster-paced, lol. He would pretty reasonable amounts of non-filler text into a single chapter. Go back and read the entirety of Ten, or the start of Kaiji or Akagi, lol :P

 

With that said, yeah, I still enjoy it and I'm not recommending anyone stop reading or anything. Just... if you have self-control (unlike me), you might be better off checking on the scanlations once a month rather than once per release.

Fukumoto's current record is a single overnight mahjong session lasting 20 volumes.

 

Ah yes, the Eternal Gambling Abyss Akagi.

Oh no,  he used the freaking 2 XD.

Well, I've used the raws to spoil myself... I won't spoil anyone here about the content itself, but I'll warn you that the pace slows down _even more_, and to the point where just a couple of moves will take approximately an eternity to resolve.
