>>133123766 He's a genuine idiot OP. This fuck seriously has no hope in life. He gets so fucking lucky and then immediately screws himself over the very next moment. At this point things have gotten so stupid it's no longer worth reading the manga.
>the two 45ers didn't betray him because they thought he was in cahoots with Teiai which would screw them over >they didn't betray him out of any desire of self defense or anything >they betrayed the guy who saved them from hell because they thought he kept a lot of money because the guy they know to be rotten to the core told them so
Still makes me mad, thankfully now they're crumbling under debts.
>>133127698 This was the pits, really. After the harrowing ending of the Casino Pachinko arc, with the hidden debts and that kind man in black who just give him money, half of the people he 'bought' from enslavement betrayed him. Horrible.
Though I guess Chang and Mario are good people, it's weird giving like 14 volumes or about 3 years to games the MC just watched and not played at all. But I guess Kaiji (and Akagi)'s pace are just that stretched out.
>>133128648 No, I've seen the climax and Kaiji getting rescued by a tissue paper slip was clever but not really worth the slog through it. Part 3 is by far the slowest, most monotone, and technical chapter there is. For instance part 1 had 4 games played, technically 5 if you count the beam crossing twice, part 2 had two games, and part 3 has 1 game, making it really lack in variety. Even part 4 can technically be said to have 2 games because of the story in Kazuya's book. I would have rather have seen 17 steps played in Akagi, it would have fit better there. The only saving grace part 3 has is introducing Peanut Nose Jr.
>>133128933 Mostly yes. I like games, and the ones FKMT comes up with are interesting. Kaiji is a cool dude too, and I like him as a character a lot, but for me his appeal is second to the cool games and scenarios in those games presented. That said The Bog wasn't really a game, as it can either only be won or only be lost, but I liked the arc just because I also like heist movies like Ocean's 11 and The Italian Job and The Bog arc is a good bit of that.
Also I find a lot of the villains to be uninteresting, so they're not much of an attraction eityher. For instance both Tanegawa and greasy talk big, but they're really just a couple of cheap cheats, hypocrites of the most obvious kind. Greasy in particular talks about the thrill of the gamble, but there's really not any gamble for him, is there? And Tonegawa talks about how experiences he is and how well he can read people, but that's just a façade isn't it?
