Gambling Apocalypse Kaiji season 2



FINALLY! The second season of Kaiji has been announced in Weekly Young Magazine. This season will adapt the second part of the manga, Tobaku Hakai roku Kaiji.

Scan:

Spoiler:


Synopsis from myanimelist:

Quote:
It has been several months after the 'Castle of Despair' has ended. Itou Kaiji, now more in debt disappears completely from society. Even the loan shark Endou gives up on searching for Kaiji when he notices in the parking lot that the two cars on either side of his parked car has been brutally damaged.....by someone.

Not to rain on anyone's parade but why not Akagi instead? I couldn't get into Kaiji (only watched like 7 episodes before I gave up), but Akagi was sooooooo badass compared to Kaiji.

Last time I checked, Akagi was still stuck inside Washizu's mansion (He's been there for more than ten years of serialization, which equals to more than 10 volumes). So, it's impossible to make a sequel right now since it wouldn't go anywhere.

I'd love to see a Ten anime though. Old Akagi was still badass as hell. And the ending was simply stunning.

Yep. That why I list Akagi as best male character in fiction of all time. So fucking charismatic.

You think charging up a Spirit Bomb takes a long time? Well you haven't seen a mahjong match before then.

I thought about watching this couple times but now that I actually saw that screenshot ... what the eff is up with their noses ? So distracting that if I was to watch it, I doubt I could concentrate o.o

^ Nah, you get used to it. Hell, I even came to love them pointy noses.

Besides, Fukumoto's storytelling is so compelling that you quickly forget about such trifles. That man can make ANY game fascinating.

Yeah, I love his chara design now

About second line, well that's not a understatement.

The man can even makes paper-rock-scrissor games became bloody game

I was wondering what the hell happened... 10 years, good god! The publisher must have balls of steel.

Ah, I can't wait. I've been pumped and ever-impatient for this since I finished the series while it was airing. The releases were the highlights of the week when it aired, without a shred of doubt one of the best series in recent years.

If the second season is even half as good, it'll be a pure joy.

Kaiji has too many plotholes and dragged on for so long to be taken seriously. The character designs are excellent though. And 20+ volumes for a showdown with pachinko machines? Come on.

so i take it from the scan that he reattached his ear and fingers. So this doesn't deal with Hyoudou anymore? When i first saw it the character designs annoyed me, but then it grew on me and i actually liked it in the end.
