So all the reviews I read of this were stellar. Everyone said it was SO psychological and that it constantly leaves you thinking and contemplating. Well I thought the show was as slow and boring as a shit on a cold Tuesday morning. I didn't have any time to think because every character (including the insufferable narrator) told me EVERYTHING they were thinking at all times. There was nothing to think about because everything was spelled out so slowly and succinctly it's like the show thought I was an idiot and wouldn't understand basic reasoning. I stored watching after everyone fell to their deaths. Am I missing something? What's the deal?

I just wish it had an ending.

This is far superior to Akage btw.

Wasn't S2 enough of a proper closure?
I know that there is the manga but that shit ain't gonna be ending in the next two decades
So just consider S2 as the ending

>he couldn't watch Kaiji

I'd understand if you were complaining about Akagi, but Kaiji? Fucking Kaiji? The best gambling anime where you can actually relate and feel what the main character is feeling, wheter he wins or loses.

So what if the characters look weird compared to your usual anime? So what if the narrator sounds weird to you?

This is Kaiji, not Akagi.

So, it was slow and you still didn't have the time to think? That sounds more like you've got a learning disability.

I feel like no one has addressed what I brought up that the show treats you like an idiot. I liked the story but even after something was obvious I was told what was happening, even though I could see what was happening! I don't hate every fuckin narrator but this one sucks. I guess time to think was a bad word choice, room to think would be better. What am supposed to be thinking about I'd everything is SO OBVIOUS that there's no ambiguity or room for interpretation? I even like slow anime! I just think that kaiji is indulgent, constantly telling us how clever everything is instead of moving the story along.
>>
>>133687850
I liked the art style and never said anything about it, learn to read. And the narrator doesn't sound weird. He just says a lot of unnecessary shit.
>>
>>133689116
It's a sports anime. If you can follow what's going on at all times that's a good thing.
>>
You came into the show with over the top expectations and got disappointed. Big fucking whoop.

kaiji has been going on since 1996
so that's 19 years
and we have yet to see kaiji going up against kurosaki or him settling the score with hyoudou
heck, even his gamble with kazuya has just started
I am devoted to fkmt and all but you can't deny his tendency to drag on shit for too long
>>
>>133689116
well, it's not about what the MC is doing, it's about the emotional predicament he's in.
The narrator is just there to enforce the feels the MC is going through and this is one of a few examples where the narrator is actually good, unlike shows like HxH
If you watched the whole of Espoir arc, you should be able to understand that his strategy of collecting one particular was albeit a simple one and not even a proper strategy
This video should explain to you the appeal of this series

If you still think that this is not your cup of tea, than I guess you should stick to generic shonen

I haven't watched the video yet but I see your point about the narrator. I thought that the animation and dialogue was enough to convey how kaiji was feeling though. I like his illustrations but they go on forever. It's like when someone explains something to you 4 times because they think you don't get it. But you've turned me around a little bit.
>>
the narrator isnt there to explain, hes there to create tension and offer insight on the situation. Hes there to properly convey the emotional pressure that the players feel while gambling, and he does so by constantly shouting and stating the obvious, because even the obvious might create doubts when your life is on the line.

Like, for example, that the KUYASHII part. Kaiji repeats this to himself and the narrator joins him, but thats not to explain what Kaiji is thinking, more like how he feels about what hes thinking.

In other news. the fucking machine has a name, Chang express his concern about gambling in a warehouse with shady men in black suits at 2AM and Kaiji and Kazuya still acting gay for each other.

I actually agree with this and it applies to FKMT in general, he explains shit way too much, shit that's not even hard to understand to begin with.

Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by impaired social interaction, verbal and non-verbal communication, and restricted and repetitive behavior.

People with autism have social impairments and often lack the intuition about others that many people take for granted. Noted autistic Temple Grandin described her inability to understand the social communication of neurotypicals, or people with normal neural development, as leaving her feeling "like an anthropologist on Mars. Kuyashii!".

It has nothing to do with insulting your intelligence. The narrator is there to build tension and emphasize what each character is feeling. Kaiji is very much an emotionally-charged series. If you are too autistic to relate to anything concerning the human condition you should probably watch something else.
>>
>>133695544
I can already relate to it without it being shoved in my fucking face. I think it's way more autistic to not be able to relate to someone's feelings if they aren't specifically explained to you. Like to not understand facial expressions and typical emotions unless they're explained to you is like the literal definition of autism
>>
>>133696010
It's for dramatic effect. But then again, I admit FKMT does have an tendency to repeat things over and over which is polarizing for some. I can overlook it because all the high points of the series outweigh this for me, but maybe it just isn't for you.
>>
>>133685346
So are you telling me you hate it?

Fuck you OP I love the narrator and I love the theatrical element of the narration and imagery.

I wish a theatre company could do a live action Kaiji play with the narrator as an actor on set narrating everything like the show. I would love to watch the crew do impromptu set changes to fit the imagery the narrator conjures.

I want to see the actor playing the narrator stand over a despairing Kaiji doing a call and response of "HE HATES IT" "I HATE IT" with Kaiji withering every time
>>
>>133696505
No, I just didn't love it like everyone else does. There are definitely worse anime out there.
>>
>>133685346
Kaiji is the best.
