    Kaiji - An Underrated, overlooked, masterpiece.
    For the longest time I put Kaiji off. Why? The premise didn't hook me, the art was ugly, and it just looked boring. Long story short I lost a bet and was forced to watch it. BEST BET I'VE EVER LOST. Kaiji ended up becoming one of my all time favorites. Not only did I find out it was animated by one of my favorite animators MADHOUSE (Hunter x Hunter, Claymore, Death Note) but I found out it ...

    Perfection of Realistic Gambling
    This anime is indeed a hidden gem. With Kaiji trying to survive dangerous gambles through unthinkable scenarios there is an extreme atmosphere to this anime since you cant tell what will happen. Kaiji portrays the perfect gambling addict and truly lives up to the titles name of the ultimate survivor. The best part about this series is that Kaiji seems so real that you can relate to him by looking ...

    Kaiji is one of the Best Anime you'll ever see!
    Kaiji is the epitome of suspense anime. It's like a rollercoaster ride you never want to end. It takes all your favourite edge of your seat moments from anime and combines them into one.

    Love the design, the soundtrack, the narrator and the plot. Immense show!!

    A Psychological Masterpiece!
    It's been a while since I've seen an anime I would call great, but this just nailed it. The main negative is that it's a bit slow paced (mainly the 2nd season). But if you can endure it there is much to take in from this show. Kaiji is probably the most clever/intelligent character's I have ever seen in anime, the idea's/schemes he executes is what drives this anime to just be completely ...

    Absolutely love this show
    Kaiji is awesome. While the show is arguably slow-paced, it's still paced much faster than any shonen anime (Naruto, Bleach, etc). The challenges are tense, intriguing, and creative. This is one of my favorite and most influential shows. It's absolutely great. I can't get enough of it.

    Don't over look this one!
    I have passed up this show numerous times. I decided to watch based on favorable reviews. I watched the series over a 4 day period ( so its at least decent).

    This show does a very good job with story and delving into the world of gambling and the consequences of risky endeavors. The characters and situations felt realistic (to some extent) of how things in this venue would be.

    The ...

    Zawa..Zawa...Zawa...
    Kaiji is a show that digs into how far people will go over money and when they are put into incredibly dangerous situations. Once you start watching this show you won't stop. Highly recommended to all

  • If you or anyone you know has a gambling problem:
    Put them on a boat of Yakuza and other folks with a gambling problem- And let them gamble! (Please note- As I am a free account, I am still pretty early on in the series)

    Anyway. I have wanted to see Kaiji for some time now, noting its' popularity with the Japanese audience. This anime will really resonate with certain types- People who have been in, or are in, situations similar to ...

    Love & Hate - Whirlwind of emotion
    I don't often write reviews. However, this anime is something special. It warranted a review.

    I love this anime.

    I hate this anime.

    I love this anime ... you get the idea. It's like picking petals of a flower off one by one -- I love it, I hate it, I love it, I hate it ... and at the very end - it came up "I love it."

    I could not put this anime down - not until every single last ...
