One of the few thriller shows that actually works
Expect lots of terrifiying shit that horrifies you, and constantly high stakes
Janken>E-Card>17 Steps>Rail Crossing>Tissue Box>whatever that game they played in the camp was>>>> Pachinko
>>
several moments where the protagonist could end his suffering but chooses not to because of human greed
>>
The first arc is about the most gambling-oriented it gets. There are good arcs later, but a lot of them are just high-stakes games and not really focused on the psychological gambling aspect.

Suffering.
Slow pacing.
An art style which is ultimately an 'acquired taste'.
Really slow pacing.
More suffering.
Completely sick mindgames.
Twists which will blow your mind.
Fantastic reveals.
SLOW PACING.

No, seriously, the pacing drags the fuck on especially in the second season. Great show though. You'll almost certainly enjoy it.

You can expect a lot of pain if you start relating to Kaiji. Too much pain.

Akagi.
You know nothing about mah-jong, don't worry it doesn't matter.

Then finally a million episodes of pachinko (holy fuck this is slowly paced).

Code Geass or Saki. They might seem unrelated but there's a strong chance you'll love at least one of them if you also loved Kaiji.

I know a lot of /a/ regularly rank Human Derby as the most boring of the Kaiji gambrus and I can see why, the second part of the event with the actual deaths is the most memorable scene in the series for me. The raw emotion and fear in their voices as Ishida and the rest started panicking and falling along with the reaper analogy really made those episodes intense to watch.
>>
Lots of emotional distress. I got so stressed at one point I paced back and forth in my room deep in thought for almost half an hour after the episode was over.
>>
>>144305863
boring? no way

I can understand not liking it because it isn't really gambling, just psychology, but that arc had me on the edge of my seat more than the majority of shit I've ever watched

It's a good show overall

People like saying forced drama over other shows but this right here is a prime example.
Also terrible pacing and insultingly drawn out explanations for everything interspersed with 9th grade philosophy doled out at the same terrible speed.

It's not worse, it's different.

one thing I liked about it was how Kaiji felt like a hapless loser who was just trying his best, and how in spite of all his wiles he was often unable to one-up Tonegawa and the Director. He didn't get much in the way of lucky breaks.

Does anyone else unironically like the bog/pachinko arc?

It's the only anime arc that made me feel serious emotion. Everytime that ball got near it's destination only to fail killed me inside.

It's extremely easy to binge watch it since episodes often end with a crazy cliffhanger, but I think it's best experienced if you only watch one a week, or one every couple days. It's like Code Geass in that regard. The tension from waiting makes you enjoy it more.

>>144314671

I do, feel like most people think it's slowly paced just because at first Kaiji doesn't attempt the bog and instead Sakazaki does then fails and then Kaiji attempts it

I like how he ruins the guy and puts him in a labor camp and chases him down just to say ganbare
