My AOTY 2018 and one of the most unexpectedly great comedies in anime. A must watch for any Kaiji or FKMT fan.


started off kinda hit or miss for me, but with each passing week the gags get more and more on point. Powerpoint, if you will.


Surprisingly funny and wholesome but only a specific audience will fully appreciate it. Watch Kaiji s1 and s2 before watching this!!


Honestly, that was really original and funny.


As a Kaiji fan this spin off was pretty much on par with what I expected it to be, but just a lot more comedic.


This started off slow, and I wasn’t too keen, but now I’m really enjoying it and I’ll miss it once it’s over.


It isn’t that bad but… i don’t see reason to do an anime adaptation.
