However, Kaiji survives the gamble and is invited to another gambling night, this time at Starside Hotel. Although initially wary about the offer, he is spurred by his acquaintance Sahara to go.

After being the only survivor of the Human Derby, Kaiji decides to avenge his friends by competing in another gambling match the financing corporation known as Teiai Group has prepared: E-Card.

After losing sums of money during the game, Kaiji realizes that the game was rigged from the start in Muraoka's favor, with Maeda looking at Kaiji's tiles and giving information to Muraoka and Miyoshi sending false signals to Kaiji.

Kazuya offers Kaiji an opportunity to gamble with him, to which Kaiji accepts and follows him. Kazuya reveals to Kaiji his twisted and bloodthirsty personality and how despicable he thinks human beings are. He decides to test his view on human nature with a life-or-death game called Salvation Game, with three friends indebted to him, Mario, Chang and Mitsuyama, and see if their friendship is a true bond.

Kaiji is an observer to this game and cheers on the three men to challenge Kazuya's corrupted views. However, after several rounds, Mitsuyama ends up failing to put his trust into his friends and betrays them, taking all the money of the game and leaving them behind to die.

Kaiji instinctively saves Mario and Chang from death, and before going with Kazuya to a warehouse and do their gamble, Kaiji asks them to join and support him to defeat Kazuya.

Nevertheless Kaiji, in an act of mercy, saves Kazuya from dying with the help of Mario and Chang. While Kazuya lies unconscious, they escape with 2. Kaiji is written and illustrated by Nobuyuki Fukumoto.

The series started in Kodansha 's Weekly Young Magazine issue 11 of published on February 19, In August , it was announced at Otakon that the then new brand North American manga publishing company Denpa licensed the first part of the manga Gambling Apocalypse: Kaiji.

A spin-off , titled Mr. The music for the anime series was composed by Hideki Taniuchi. Yugo Kanno composed the music for the live-action films.

Netflix has acquired the global digital rights to the film. The game is developed by Solid Sphere and is based on the events depicted in the Castle of Despair arc of the first part of the manga. Several pachinko and pachislot machines based on the series have been released. In the show, indebted contestants have the opportunity to earn money participating in different challenges inspired by the games of the manga.

An application process was available in the program's official website until November The manga had over 18 million copies in print as of November , [92] 20 million copies in print as of July , [93] and over Michael Toole of Anime News Network praised the narrative of Kaiji , stating that "the series is run through with entertaining lowlifes, odd situations, and intoxicating moments of suspense.

Meek also wrote that the theme of the series is "the rich always screw over the poor" and the games could be seen as a "direct form social commentary". The series' art style has been particularly commented by reviewers. Toole described Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor as "fantastically ugly" and "cheaply animated", [] and Martin stated that it uses a "very old-school artistic style", noting the use of "noses that are either huge or lethally sharp, extra-heavy lines in the character designs, and limited animation.

Crunchyroll listed the second season Kaiji: Against All Rules among the best anime series of , with reviewer Joseph Luster commenting, "Ideally, Kaiji would be super popular in North America. I'd certainly like to think it would blow up if someone licensed it, but who knows. Still, if you managed to catch the second season this year, you know how dangerously addictive it can be. Zawa zawa, indeed. Santos wrote that the greatest strengths of the film are the psychological gamesmanship and the theory of gambling games, preserving the spirit of the original work.

He criticized the characters' one-dimensional characterization, the "artificial" closed-room scenarios and the "contrived" staging of "scrappy working-class hero versus evil old rich guy", stating that Kaiji could be labeled as a "fantasy". Santos also mentioned the changes from the original work and the "awkward plot manuevers" to make the events fit in the film's two-hour time frame. He criticized the "over-the-top" acting of Fujiwara, Kenichi Matsuyama and Teruyuki Kagawa , stating that " William Shatner would end up telling Kagawa that it might be a good idea to dial things down a little bit.

It seems that in the world of Kaiji more always equals better. For those of us unfortunate enough to be sitting in the audience the whole experience is just painful.

Not to give away any spoilers, but the fact that the film's ending leaves things wide open for a sequel or sequels makes me shudder. In a review of the second live-action film, Kaiji 2 , Maggie Lee of The Hollywood Reporter felt little suspense and satisfaction with the characters and the actors' performance.

She wrote that the cast "cranks up their acting" but due their "cardboard" roles they "have no hopes of being more than that". Lee expressed no excitement in the "character reversals", pointing out that they have become quite common in the survival game genre, with works like Liar Game or The Incite Mill , stating "no matter how many times the key persons in Kaiji switch their allegiances, it no longer surprises.
