Does /a/ hate it just because it's popular?
It has great intensity and the closing credits are brilliant, being all flashy, sucking you in in that sweet, sweet vice of gamble.
But man, what is it with all the "crazy" high schools these days in anime? They even skip showing class...
Yumeko is good but Kaiji is just 10/10 MC. I'm not saying she isn't intresting
You my friend have an excellent taste. I dropped everything else after 2-3 episodes this season.
The main problem with this anime is that the gambles do not seem to have actual stakes or tension in it. As for now, MC always knows everything in advance, revealing cheating literally doesn't matter and we don't even know how much money can she afford losing.
And does the main guy even have a purpose?
That said, I'm just that starved for gambling shit so overall for me it's good enough.
Asking something cuter than Kaiji is impossible thought.
On the Side note, which one you think would win in life or death situation?
>Why does no one mention the ED?
Good question. It's clearly ED of the season.
It's also weird how Yumeko looks both more mature and significantly hotter after taking off her jacket. Even if it didn't unbutton her blouse I'd feel like this.
>if you like PriPri you have shit taste
you sure you didn't dislike it because you didn't understand it?
you should look for charts in the archive, a guy made charts explaining the various episodes
I know it's weird to say but it kinda gives me an EARLY yugi-oh vibe. In that everyone gambles for everything, the opponent is always cheating and the main character is just as dark and psychotic as the people they're going against.
I think that's what's gotten me hooked thus far. Also hoping to see a wider variety of games as it goes on. After all, you can gamble on anything.
My main issue is that it does a poor job of cluing the audience in to how the games are rigged. We don't get any insight into yumeko's thought process, nor do. we get any visual information that may help us figure out what is going on. Instead we are left completely in the dark for 80% of the episode, and at the end of every game we get a huge explanation dumped on us post-facto. Other than that, I'm enjoying the show, but I wish they gave the audience more of a chance to figure shit out themselves.
It's pretty similar. Though while early Yugi pulls out clever but simple tricks, Yumeko simply calls out the cheating,doesn't care, and wipes the floor somehow which will be explained later.
Kaiji actually was about using his brains, this seems more like magical gambling luck, most of the gambling Kaiji did seemed more like games of skill, almost like he was defeating the dirty aspect of gambling. This anime just seems more like "hurr durr, gambling is so awesome and fun when you get lucky and win, and of course we are only going to show the main characters winning 90% of the time.". Okay, the first episode she used her brains a little bit, but then she said she would rather rely on her magical gambling luck.
I like the show, and read the manga. But honestly, I just don't like the games themselves. Some of them just get too overly complicated and impossible for the viewer to understand what's happening until they explain everything at the last second. With Kaiji, the gambles lasted in episode arcs with at least 4 good episodes of pacing, sometimes more. And the stakes felt real.
With this show, I don't really know what the stakes are. I don't know how much money Yumeko even has. What does she stand to lose and gain? Also what purpose does the male character serve in this series exactly? I know at least in the manga, he is finally starting to grow some balls and take risks, I guess.
I think the reason Akagi worked, was because he was super OP, but the games themselves stayed relatively the same. So bit by bit, you understood how Akagi was good at playing mind games with mahjong if you actually understood the rules. But this series doesn't really do a good job with the mind games portion.
I haven't read the manga but Episode 1 she figures out how the girl was winning based on community, Episode 2 she sees the spot on the back of the cards that identifies all the matches, Episode 3 she figures out the magnet trick, and then 4 and 5 is more about the long con of switching the value of their chips.
I'd argue that she's not depending TOO much on luck, although this is a gambling anime. Luck will always play a factor. As she said, A game where you know exactly how to win each time isn't a gamble and isn't fun.
>MC gets to plow this semen demon
>implying she's not going to gamble her virginity away from him in a high stakes gamble.
If he wins he gets to fuck her. If she wins she gets to fuck him
with a strap-on.
They switched their declared values for the game and no one could knew. The whole school knew of Yumeko having the hugest debt of the school.
Switching plates made it seem Yumeko was betting with her actual debt, which she wasn't.
The point is that wasn't seen as anything suspicious because Yumeko was "supposed" to have that value. They probably did something like "haha, oops" and he brushed it off since lowly pets are retarded.
He won two other games prior. Even by cheating, with all the cheating going on at this school, and with the stakes being as high as they were,I would assume there would be at least one other person who tried to cheat on got beat by him. Not to mention his experience being a third year or however how old he said he was. So it's safe to assume that he was at least decently intelligent.
>uninteresting as fuck protag
She's a rich teenage girl. They're obsessed with beauty, so it would be safe to assume that she always kept a mirror for style purposes. But that's still a bit of an oversight, so yeah, maybe this show isn't as smart as it thinks it is.
>>not playing as Tits McGee
Why would you play as the shitty protag?
Are you one of those people that always go for the real mechs just because a thot pilots it?
Mary is more of an MC with stronger goals/abilities than him.
Netflix bought the rights and won't release it until the season is over and they can load them up all at once. Also their translators are fucking awful. I guess it wasn't on the radar of any of the fansubbers left either.
What a pointless scene. How about saying it when Yumeko's actually awake.
>Pretty sure he meant the guy who hangs around with Yumeko when he said MC.
Why the hell would anybody think that guy is the MC?
>Why the hell would anybody think that guy is the MC?
He was introduced first and serves as a audience surrogate character
God damn, Netflix really is killing anime.
>What a pointless scene. How about saying it when Yumeko's actually awake.
I don't think Yumeko would have done anything more than say "Oh, cool!". It was more for Mary to prove her determination to herself and not anyone else.
Also she probably would have been too self-conscious saying something so dramatic to an awake Yumeko, since Mary isn't an exactly an expressive person who shares her feelings freely.
>Basically Kaiji with actually good pacing and more intresting character
She's not more interesting, the fact that Kaiji acts like a believable person alone makes him more interesting than that retarded stereotype you're using as a picture.
The fucking mahjong arc was terribly paced though, you're right.
I agree that Kaiji is better but Yumeko acting unbelievable and mysterious so far is what makes her an interesting character. We have no idea what her history or goals are or if she's even a completely heroic character, since she could do villainous things if it meant a better gamble.
I love that "I own this shit" walk of hers. I think the second highest rated comment on youtube (I know, youtube comments are generally shit) covers the sentiment behind it very well.
>my reaction when I bought all roads on monopoly
>bland and dull characters
Given the insane number of crazy faces, I'd call these characters anything but dull.
It's an episodic gambling plot, don't expect high art.
>Women good at gambling
You made one of the famous classical blunders! The first is "never start a landwar in Asia", with the second being "never judge 2D women by 3D standards".
Crazy faces are supposed to give depth to the characters?
What makes you think this show requires depth? Or that depth is a prequisite for a show being fun? This show knows exactly how superficial it is and has no pretenses of being anything deeper.
crazy faces are the only good thing about anime
Why are you implying I give a shit about depth?
You're answer to bland and dull characters was "they make crazy faces so they're not dull". I'm just pointing out the stupid logic behind your post.
I'm all down for this show, anon, but don't mistake silly faces for something worth a shit.
The taunting is pretty good too, the one with the swords girl had me really interested.
Sorry, Yumeko is the MC. That other guy is just there to fill the self-insert role so far, but there is nothing in the whole plot that turns around him. No event, all main characters aren't bound by him, etc.
>ctrl+f "kaiji" = 19 entries
pls go and don't go back. I am sad because of no mahjong season too but you have to get over it and don't go comparing every gambling anime to a particular series.
>>Basically Kaiji with actually good pacing and more intresting character save for MC
>Edgy unrealistic and laughably corny trash that only underage Mirai-nikifags would enjoy
>At the same level as fucking Kaiji
El ou El
That has nothing to do with the main series though. That kiss was some chapter from some recently release volume in which different artists drawing chapters for Kakegurui. It's not meant to be taken seriously.
Yumeko would be dead right now if it wasn't for Suzui, Mary wouldn't have gone two-on-one willingly. Suzui isn't the protagonist but he still plays an important role.
I fucked up and skipped that somehow, even though it was the OP.
Ironically, I was expecting the series to become a kaijiesque thing after she paid his debt, having Suzui going on a high stakes gambling match to repay his debt but we just got everyone asking where Yumeko is every time she isn't on the screen
He even uselessly walked by when they were trying to fuck her instead of challenging them to a gamble himself. Shameful display
He's more of a supporting character that comes into his own, like Junouiichi or Koiichi. Someone who's sort of a normal character that's meant to ground everything more before slowly getting integrated further into the crazy world.
Exactly. He's slowly grown into a more reliable, if outmatched, source of support for Yumeko. I still expect him to be the one to ultimately reform the school for the better.
I personally prefer FKMT's long drawn out suspence, twists and psychological torture with gigaorgasmic climaxes
the idiots with helmets arc was the only time I genuinely got angry at a fictional character
>overall shit art style
Behead all who insult FKMT
Nips are watching people running instead
It was this or some casino setting that would require something harder to make.
>Nips are watching people running instead
because mappa dudes are used to that madhouse cgi department cooperation, which was slightly but better, they still animate like they remember to but now they don't have it being small and weak
they are still our single hope for the thriller manga ecranisations
>people comparing kakegurui to Kaiji instead of Zero
>part 3 never
>It's just Akagi, new Kurosawa, and the Kaiji One-Poker arc
Nani? Right now translations are at chapter 298 in which
Washizu wakes up from dying, only to discover that Akagi didn't accept his winnings, there should be at least one more volume yet, no?
Or is one volume 7 chapters
Is Akagi ending? Where are your proofs? I will bet my life that you are deceiving me!
