Oh yeah, Kaiji just keeps getting better and better. I really am quite fond of the opening as well. If anyone knows where to find it, give up the link man. I’m a collector of good asian music and the opening definitely has that feeling of rebellion I’m so fond of.

Anyway, the episode starts by having the poor indebted smucks open envelope B. Inside said envelope s 3 stars. Now…I’m not sure which arc in Yugioh this reminds me of, but I’m totally getting a Yugioh vibe off this. I’m fairly certain it was like the Battle City tournament or something like that. Anyway, this old Yakuza fellow begins to explain the rules.

To get off the ship you need to use up all your cards and have three stars. He says he’s not going to answer anymore questions, not even to say what the money they borrowed is for. Then he gives this whole angry spiel about them being losers and they need to win…with great emphasis on ‘win’

Right, so, Kaiji wastes about then minutes sitting around when he’s approached by Funai. You know, the guy who borrowed 10 million right before Kaiji? Yeah, that guy. I call him fish lips for the rest of the episode. Dog face would also work, but anyway…

He convinces Kaiji that all he has to do it get a partner and rig it so that they use up all their cards but it’s a tie each time. He also explains that the war fund are used to buy stars off of people with more than three.

Kaiji, being the dumb trusting young fellow, that he is agrees to Funai ‘Fish lips’ plan. Not-so-lomg story short, Funai fucks Kaiji over and takes two of his stars. =/

Kaiji cries for at least a half an hour before he spots someone as desperate looking as him. It’s Furuhata, the guy that Kaiji co-signed for and the man who got him here in the first place. Kaiji runs after him. He ends up in a bathroom where all the losers hang out to cry. Pfft, at least Kaiji was a man and cried in public.

He drags Furuhata out of there and concocts a plan for them to work together. They need stars though. So they go into the bathroom and find a man with two stars and no cards. His name is Andou. So the episode ends with the threesome concocting a plan to collect nine stars and leave this boat with their lives.
