“Refreshing” is the perfect word. In the 8th episode of the anime “Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji Hakairoku Hen,” which is based on a popular gambling manga, the main character Kaiji (CV: Masato Hagiwara) counters the cheating of Team Chief Otsuki (CV: Cho) and wins a big victory. I’m excited about the development.

Nobuyuki Fukumoto’s “Kaiji” series is a monumental gambling manga. The live-action version starring Tatsuya Fujiwara has also been a huge hit. Spin-off works such as “Tonegawa in the Middle East” have also gained popularity in recent years. “Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji Hakairokuhen,” broadcast in 2011, is the second series of the TV anime version.

Kaiji is thrown into an underground forced labor facility to pay off a debt of nearly 10 million yen. He struggles to get a one-day outing ticket, but after losing a chinchilla fight with Otsuki, he plunges further into debt hell. However, there is a hidden trick behind Otsuki’s competitive strength.

Until then, Otsuki had made Kaiji suffer, but in episode 8 of “Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji Hakairoku Hen,” he finally turns for the worse! As the subtitle “Causal and Retribution” suggests, the story depicts an exciting development in which Otsuki sees through his cheating and takes advantage of it.

The first half of “Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji: Hakairoku Hen” was a divine episode, and at the time of its broadcast, reactions such as “Wow, Kaiji is so cool,” “That’s so cool!” and “Seriously, I’m a squad leader!” were received. Cho’s performance as Otsuki was also well-received, especially the scene where he tries to negate the contest by shouting, “No-can! No-can!”. It was a hot topic.

In recent years, Otsuki has been selected as the main character of the spin-off manga “One Day Out Roku Hancho,” Otsuki is loved as a famous character in the “Kaiji” series. The 8th episode of “Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji Hakairoku Hen” is a must-see, as it is the episode in which he graces the end (?).
