One of the most relatable MCs in anime, perfect presentation, incredible soundtrack, mind games, ridiculous tension, and a lot of zawas.
Not many anime carry this level of pure emotion. You feel the high stakes Kaiji risks for yourself.
Explores human vices, the temptation of evil and the shattering of hope all through the usage of gambling.
Easily the best gamble show in existence.
Depression, gambling, depression. Berserk but with gambling
You can’t trust people, you can’t save people.
If you like long winded predictable gambling anime then boy oh boy will you enjoy this series with the scariest noses.
