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.

I was listening to the anime's soundtrack while reading this part and miraculously this song began right after I was in the middle of episode 154. 155 made me cry.

I'm surprised neither of them is dead yet, Kaiji already lost a red life. Is Kazuya that much of a "good guy" that he''ll let them die together at once, or is that going to be the next chapter's twist?

Huh, Kazuya has a mother complex...

i was expecting that they would enter the gamble, but not like this :P

Okay, it makes sense if they chose to do it *without Kaiji's consent*. I said Kaiji would never ask for it.

 

But my guess is that he can't take it back anymore, either.

 

Also ignoring Goral because I've classified him as "too stupid to be alive".

( a ) do you only know how to start comments with "lol"?

( b ) people seem to agree with my comment and not yours. So I think you're reading the manga incorrectly. Pay attention to author intention, don't just pretend you're reading something set in the real world where the standard rules of probability apply. They don't. The author scripted these gambles, he didn't simulate them and then write down the results. Just like Washizu (but to a much lesser extent, of course), Kazuya is favored by the FKMT gods of luck. All gambles with him should take that into account (and Akagi would easily know to do so). The author in fact loves making fun of people like you in his manga that play strictly by the numbers. He makes characters designed specifically to destroy you. Would they destroy you in the real world? Of course not. But he doesn't write the real world.

( c ) I wasn't even just talking about Kaiji, I was talking about _every_ FKMT manga. So your "Do you think I've started reading Kaiji with 5th series?" thing is just... "lol", as you would say.

lmao
I'm starting with "lol" whenever I see a silly post but you've broken the record here so I'll bite.
@b Who cares that more people agree with you than with me? As if that was an argument in a discussion... Million of flies and all that.
And are you playing stupid or are you really retarded? I know what author's intentions are and I know that standard rules of probability don't apply but my comment was a reply to Cori's "Kaiji made a mistake" - yeah, no shit. The point I was making was that from Kaiji's perspective he does live in a world where our rules apply and him risking his life on a remote probability that Kazuya would have another ace was so slim that going with his "instinct" would have been insane so listening to Chang was the best decision he could have made. At this point Kaiji obviously didn't think that Kazuya was cheating, otherwise he wouldn't agree to continue the game (which I've said already but you have problems with reading with comprehension) so he had absolutely no reason to go with such insane decision. If he went with it that would be like breaking the 4th wall.

 

Congratulations!

 

Kazuya had the mechanism installed in the first place, so that if he loses he wouldn't die, didn't he?

 

Probably, yeah. 

 

So, no we gamble three lives instead of just one, like I thought. It'll just make Kaiji's comeback more sweeter. 

Even before this "one life statue" was introduced I predicted that Kaiji's friends' lives would end up as playing chips. I still think that's gonna happen.

Congratulations!

I forgot about their use as lives, I guess that'll happen when chapter releases are usually weeks apart.
