Description: Japan, 1995. After graduating from high school, Ito Kaiji moves to Tokyo to get a job, but he fails to find steady employment because the country is mired in its first recession since World War II. Depressed, he festers in his apartment, biding the time with cheap pranks, gambles, liquor and cigarettes. Kaiji is always thinking about money and his perpetual poverty frequently brings him to tears.

Kaiji's unrelenting misery continues for two years until he is paid an unexpected visit from a man named Endo, who wants to collect an outstanding debt owed to him in Kaiji's name. Endo gives Kaiji two options - either spend ten years to repay this outstanding debt, or board the gambling ship Espoir ("hope" in French) for one night to clear the debt. Using a con, Endo pressures Kaiji into accepting the deal, believing he will never come back from the voyage.

People who keep saying that this part has never been fully translated are wrong. Looking at scummier manga hosting sites shows that this part has in fact been translated in it's entirety, so I really don't know why the rest hasn't been uploaded on here as well yet (though I have no idea as to who the scanlation group is, so they might be against rehosting their translations as far as I know).

 could you pm me one of those websties?

are there any raw scans anywhere for this?  all the links i find seem to have been taken down

Lower in priority since 2012

How much of this manga the anime covered? I wanted to follow this but it looks like the scanlation for part 1 has died.

All of it. The anime is very faithful to the manga, you won't be missing anything by not reading the manga for part 1. That's why it's lower in priority than the other parts.

Not for a while.

did FKMT Krazy going to continue the manga? 

I'd recommend reading part 2 in manga form, actually. The anime adaptation was dumbed down.
This is the first part of the Kaiji series. Parts 2 and 3 are "Tobaku Hakairoku Kaiji" and "Tobaku Datenroku Kaiji". Since Part 1 was turned into an Anime, this series is being put on low priority compared to the other two, the second of which is already totally translated. Part 2 is also Animated, so you may want to watch both series in Anime form before jumping to the manga for Part 3, which is what most people do, or you could watch Part 1 in anime form and then read the rest in Manga form. Up to you.
sorry for sounding childish, no way to delete it.
where is 18+?
mangafox got it.
