What is his greatest work?
>>
Kurosawa part one.
>>
Ten, followed by Akagi, Gai and Kurosawa in that order.
>>
Kurosawa, obviously.

Seizon - Life is second.

Gin to Kin is third, then the rest.
>>
>>157283688
There's part two??
>>
>>157284179
Yes. It's about him becoming a hobo after he wakes up from the coma.
>>157282012
Gin to Kin
Zero 1st series
Kurosawa 1st series
>>
>>157282012
Ten

Read enough FKMT and you'll get sick of giant corporations with black-suit goons holding death games some day.
>>
>>157284386
I really love Gin to Kin, and I think it's more fun and better paced than Kaiji, but for me it really isn't above Ten and later Akagi. Mahjong is fkmt's strong suit, and it is the means he feels most comfortable with to deliver an incredible story. Of course though, the highlight of Ten definitely wasn't mahjong, but still.

Fkmt is a very talented mangaka, and I'm glad so many people have such different favourites when it comes to his works.
>>
>>157282012
What do you guys recommend I read first?
Because I know a lot of his stories have continuations. Like with Kaiji, Ten, Zero, Kurosawa.
>>
>>157285679
If you like mahjong, start with Ten, follow with Akagi if you liked it.

If you don't, watch Kaiji or read Zero, then try Ten anyways.

If you strongly detest games, try Kurosawa or Gai.

Kurosawa by far if we pretend that part 2 doesn't exists.
Akagi would be my personal second one

it's a crying shame none of fkmt's manga ever got releases outside of japan (other than seizon life). none that i know of, at least.

what do you think?
>>
>>157286753
Absolutely 0 mainstream or even profitable niche appeal. It falls into the obscure kind of niche that simply wouldn't sell. Just look at the fucking Kaiji game on Steam that absolutely fucking bombed for example.

It's old but I still thought it would be useful for someone just getting into fkmt.

You do realise that Gogem is a hack and doesn't have rights on anything related to FMKT.
>>
>>157286943
I'm aware that whoever made that game obviously has no Kaiji rights but how are they a hack for adapting Restricted Janken into vidya format? Unless there's some drama I'm not aware of in which case do tell.
>>
>>157286977
All I'm saying, if the game was officially developed by decent team and was properly marketed it probably would not have flopped.

Watch season 1 of Kaiji, read after that (Part 1 is not translated by FKMT crazy, but has an official online translation for like $3 a volume).

Zero is just Kaiji but with a smart protagonist and more focus on solving the games than the psychological aspect of the games.


If you're going to read Ten and Akagi, read Ten up until the Clear Mahjong arc, then read all of Akagi (current translations are up to date I think, and the series only has 9 chapters to go), then finish Ten.
>>
>>157289416
Thanks
>>
>>157286977
The game didn't generate a lot of fellowship going into it's beta time (pre-greenlight), then it went greenlight and people calling it illegal to rip-off kaiji turned SOME people away, then on release the only servers were player hosted ones.

Apparently recently they went free to play, so maybe that might boost interest. The game itself is alright, but it's a multiplayer only game. If it had some kind of singleplayer, like maybe even half of what the Kaiji ps1 game was then it might do even better but I'm not holding my breath.

I had fun with it when I played it at release with people from the FKMTKrazy community.
>>
>>157289589
Another thing was that he didn't market the game well like at all. He tried posting on /v/ of all places, but his posts were taken down due to advertising.
Yet despite all of his hardships, I was thinking about making One Poker into a game like how he did Restircted RPS. Seems simple enough and since it's a 1v1 kind of game, implementing single-player wouldn't be hard. Seems like a fun summer project and if it kicks off I could probably go all out on it.
>>
>>157289674
I'd only play it if you make it F2P, and I'm sure same would go for many others.
>>
>>157289416
>Zero is just Kaiji but with a smart protagonist and more focus on solving the games than the psychological aspect of the games.

I just wanted to add on that I think Morita from GtK is much more like 'if Kaiji were a competent protagonist' while also keeping a psychological aspect more than Zero does.

>>157289538
You got a lot of good advice, hope you enjoy descending into nosey madness.
>>
I sure hope Kaiji ends on an emotional note like Kurasawa and Ten.
>>
>>157290049
I'm hoping that the final Arc is a true showdown against Hyodo.

If Kaiji manages to actually beat his son and become a (yen) billionaire, surely Hyodo will want to defeat him
>>
>>157290156
I was actually kind of hoping for Kaiji and Kazuya to somehow team up against Hyodo. Considering Kazuya isn't exactly his dad's biggest fan.

Some people think that what's done is done, regarding Hyodo, but I can't help but feel everything is leading up to the confrontation where Kaiji leaves him and Teiai in ruin. Or at least try to.
>>
>>157290432
That's what I feel as well. I really doubt Fukumoto just decided to introduce the guys son as an antagonist for fun. I really think that Kazuya might end up dead. The setup for it is perfect. The machine controls everything, so if Kazuya bet his life and lost, Kaiji couldn't stop it, and Kazuya's henchmen couldn't either, considering they're all outside.

Same here. I really Kaiji to get another shot at him, but this time have Kaiji being prepared.
>>
>>157292158
>final showdown against Hyodo
>Kaiji loses again

Honestly I think it may happen.
>>
>>157292227
I wouldn't mind it being a draw. But I don't want Hyodo to win and the series to end on that. A bittersweet ending will be fine, but not a bitter one.
>>
>>157292158
>but this time have Kaiji being prepared.

Exactly. Hyodo proved that even he can make prideful mistakes, given that he arrogantly gave Kaiji a chance to win the Lottery game. If Kaiji enters into a gamble with him with experience, strategy, and luck on his side, he could win. The enormous Mahjong win convinced me of that. He's an idiot, but he has incredible instinct and otherwordly luck.
>>
>>157292491
Kaiji's luck could be from Hyodo giving Kaiji part of his own luck at the end of first part. Remember that line where he gives Kaiji the winning scrap of paper back and says it's infused with King's Luck.
And then you realize that Kaiji wins three times in a row right after that (Chinchirorin, Pachinko, Mahjong).
It has to count for something despite being symbolic.

Also the way Hyodo acted towards Kaiji made me feel as if, in a way, he saw a younger version of himself in Kaiji for the lack of better words.
>>
>>157292394
Me neither. I don't trust FKMT not to hurt me again though.

Actually, Hyodo just used that as an excuse to have Kaiji keep the paper and later realize that Hyodo could pick out the paper because it was folded, and that there's no such thing as "King's luck", that Hyodo made sure he would win.
>>
>>157292062
Yeah, there was also something about mother Sophie based on? Kazuya's own mother I assume? Or some "inheriting her spirit" kinda deal.

Hopefully it turns out OK, but I don't trust fkmt a bit...

>>157290049
The current chapters of Kaiji are probably the most intense the series has been to date.

Kaiji and Kazuya are both all in, Red Lives included. Kazuya already used Mother Sophie's failsafe to save Kaiji when Kaiji's remote broke. So Kazuya is about to eat it.

Chinchirorin. When Kaiji goes, what are you doing, you have to go twice with my cheat dice.

He had just raped him the previous turn, and then hit again.

Is the game against Kazuya about to end? Did Kaiji ever use the 2 he had while he was about to drop down?

He used the 2 in the next hand and bluffed to get Kazuya to fold with a 6. As for the game ending, this past week's chapter was the card being flipped over and a flashback to the entire arc, dragging out the reveal for another week.
>>
>>157294072
>>157294830
interesting how even though its dragging on forever, fkmt manages to keep it so intense
>>
>>157294937
It's not dragging on nearly as long as the 6th round of Washizu mahjong did.

Overall the pacing of One Poker (and even the Salvation Game towards the 2nd half) wasn't too bad.
>>
>>157285823

I didn't know shit about mahjong yet I enjoyed Akagi.

I may have searched a little bit about the rules now and then while watching it but usually very little info.

>>157285823

>>157295261
There's a very small button on both sides that reveals a tray of 3 Aces. Kaiji discovers it and swaps out his 8 for an Ace. Kazuya has been using this throughout the match (at least one of the 5 Aces he plays through the match is definitely from this table, I cant remember the exact number)

He notices there are also 3 buttons in a triangle but he can't push them at once.

Kazuya realizes Kaiji uses the Ace button, so he uses the other buttons. We don't know what is in that drawer, nor do we know what either player played, but it's likely that button is for an arsenal of 2s to counter the Aces.

So either: Both played an Ace, Kazuya played a 2 into Kaiji's Ace, or Kaiji played his down card into Kazuya's 2. The reveal is going to be in the next issue.
>>
>>157282012

It's Kurosawa.

I like Shin Kurosawa as well because I love hobo shenanigans (Tokyo Godfathers is my favorite Satoshi Kon movie), but it pales in comparison to the singular brilliance that is the original Kurosawa.

So who could win, Akagis' or Kaijis' luck?

Reading amazon reviews they're upset it's dragged on so long. I think poker isn't a good game for FKMT's -like pacing, Kaiji never had such a long arc for a single game

>>157299383
Yeah 1v1 poker is pretty one dimensional. He should have come up with a different game.

Yeah, it feels like it should already be starting to head towards the end now.

>>157299383
At least it seems like its finally coming to a close going by 154 unless it gets dragged out by having him win and going back to playing without lives on the line. He really should wrap things up though.

Yeah, that's the thing - if Kaiji wins some massive amount against Hyodo, then the lesson is...what exactly? That Kaiji was right to be a fucking bum all his life and risk everything in insane gambles? I'm not sure I can see FKMT going for that.

>>

There's also that; even if he did win, he's just going to piss it all away.
>>
>>157300069
He doesn't want to win money from him, though. He wants to stop him from taking advantage of others. That's why at the start of Kazuya-hen it was made clear its more about a battle of ideals rather than cash. One Poker is Kaiji going against what you could consider his first real equal.
>>
>>157300069

The money is how he does that. Taking away his money is how you stop him.

I don't think it would stop Hyodou even if he would lose all his money. He needs a real lesson, I think something that needs you to cooperate with someone to show him trust and friendship is a real deal.

But its not getting the money for the sake of having the money. He'll probably give it to Sakazaki's family and/or Ishida

I'm down for any kind of Kaiji and Kazuya combo. Buddy cops. Super hero team. Humorously mismatched housemates. You name it.

>Kaiji and Kazuya as my two gay dads:
>love's the most important thing son!
>don't you believe that crap son, use her and dump her before she uses you.

Glorious.

So, is it feasible to combine both Washizu Mahjong and 17 Steps Minefield?
>>
>>157300817
That doesn't make any sense, Kazuya is a sick murderer and is irredeemable.

reminds me that Morita had few people attempting to backstab him, and apparently, Washizu had at least one as well.

He's a good boy.

Kazuya is just Kaiji if he was raised by a Hyodo

>>157294364
Because the Chinchirorin arc is honestly one of the most intense piece of TV there is, period.

>>157301541
I don't get how Kazuya can only be 17 given how much younger Hyodo looks there.

>irredeemable
You will see when he is lose to Kaiji he is gonna bother him to no end because he will find in him a genuine friend.

there's at least two characters who are big spenders (Akagi, Ten), those also have their respective antagonists who have their own problems because of their success. But then, there's also this guy.

Still an entertaining friend

This was nice. I wish he did more short stuff that wasn't related to gambling.
