>>
>>135089076
Yes and all the other parts in manga are awesome too
>>
>>135089076
Bog is the shit so yeah.
>>
>>135089076
It's arguably the weaker of the two but it's still top tier for anime in general.
>>
>>135089076

It's full of filler and drags things out so much it makes DBZ look modest.
>>
>>135089215
Do the other parts ever go back to the variety of games present in part 1, or is it all Bog-esque shit?
>>
I've heard that the subs for season 2 are pretty bad. Are HorribleSubs better than NutBladder's, or is it just the same?
>>
>>135089412

After the Bog is Mahjong and quite possibly the greatest single page.
>>
>>135089371
>full of filler
It's exactly like the manga. FKMT just isn't really good at pacing.
>>
>>135089412
Read Zero if you want variety of games

Read the manga instead, because of the slow pacing at the bog arc. But yes it's worth it. Watch it on Kissanime as a last resort.

Liked the bowl grapper and ichijou more than any villain in the first season mainly.
>>
>>135091965
Fair enough. To me S1 had more interesting games while S2 had more interesting villians. That's why I can't hate S2 even though watching the Bog weekly was hell.
>>
>>135090345
does it explain mahjong well ?
>>
>>135092167
It's a simplified version of mahjong. The manga scans have an additional "tutorial" chapter made by the translators to help you get in the mood.
>>
>>135092167

Very basic, but you don't need to know how Mahjong works (it helps of course).

The real meat of that showdown was not in how to win at Mahjong, but how to win the game.

I think people went way too mad over the weekly bog thing. It was slower than needed though.
>>
>>135092279
I wonder what would happen if the full Washizu battle ends up being adapted once it eventually ends.
Could you imagine 50+ episodes of a single mahjong battle? Following it weekly on /a/? Everyone would become insane.
>>
>>135092279
Yeah, the pacing didn't ruin it for me. It was still enjoyable for me, but at the same time I really wanted to know what happened next.

>>135092301
I would be okay with that. There are so many scenes in the manga I want to see animated.

akagi is better than kaiji

Full Washizu would be fucking amazing. I'd love to see peoples reaction when they start to realize it's just going to be same fight for whole anime.
>>
>>135092482
Akagi is extremely entertaining but Kaiji is more solid of a series.
>>
>>135090324
I watched Nutbladder, and they weren't completely awful. I haven't seen HS's, but I'd go with Nutbladder.

>tfw got friends to watch Kaiji with me
>tfw they all thought the first RPS arc dragged on for way too fucking long

Guess it's not even worth it to show them the rest, isn't it
>>
>>135092835
Make them watch Naruto or Attack on Titan, it'll probably be more their style.

Bog may as well be a page for page adaption. Hell, they cut some small parts out of chinchiro.

Reading it chapter by chapter with other anons as it got translated was miles worse.

Some of the funnest times I had on /a/ was reactions to the manga/the sticky thread for the OST.
>>
>>135089076
I didnt know there is a first season and watched the second season first :( worth to watch the first season anymore?
>>
>>135089076
No.
I loved the original Kaiji, one of the best things I've ever seen.
I got onto Season 2 and it starts with Kaiji struggling in jail. There was a fairly fun gambling climax with dice and shit that I enjoyed.
Upon getting out of prison Kaiji intends to make money, however I sat through about 10 episodes of some random old guy try to win a pachinko machine with a magnetic beer can while Kaiji just watched.
Borning as shit, dropped it there.
>>
>mfw people complain about bog pacing when it is really only one episode where not much happens
>>
>>135093208
Yeah, but in the manga you only need to take a quick glance at each panel while the anime forces you to stare at falling balls and reaction faces for minutes at a time.
>>
>>135093433
I don't know how people can say they love something if they can't even bear watching a couple of episodes before dropping it. Sometimes shit has build up, deal with it or go watch battle shounen.
>>
>>135093597
Yeah, it's for this reason I think manga + listening to S2 OST is the better option.
>>
>>135093536
I enjoyed the Bog, but lets be honest here...

It was really long. Each episode was basically 15 minutes of Bog footage, 5 minutes of despair, with 1 minute to explain a new twist that becomes less relevant next episode when a counter-twist is revealed.

OH! The machine is tilted.

OH! The building is tilted!

OH! There's another layer of cheating!

OH! There's another layer of cheating!

They could have easily had half the episodes with the same amount of actual content. I like the suspense a bit, but they could have at least had ONE less episode, to keep it a bit faster paced.
>>
>>135093719
It really isn't that bad though. I rewatched it just recently and it is seriously like that in one episode but the rest is perfectly fine.
>>
>>135093862
That's why I said they could have cut out ONE episode at least. They could have used that time to make the jail environment more fleshed out, or to give a bit more information on what happens after Kaiji wins/loses the money.
