Gyakkyō Burai Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor​



%E8%B3%AD%E5%8D%9A%E9%BB%98%E7%A4%BA%E9%8C%841_1.jpg



After graduating from high school in 1996 in Japan, Itō Kaiji moves to Tokyo to get a job, but he fails to find steady employment because the country is mired in its first recession since World War II. Depressed, he festers in his apartment, biding his time with cheap pranks, gambling, liquor and cigarettes. Kaiji is always thinking about money and his perpetual poverty frequently brings him to tears. However one day, he is approached by a yakuza who gives him a chance to gamble his way out of debt.

Kaiji is a practical use of the inner monologue as he copes with whats right and whats wrong in this world where only the strongest survive. The reason is it addresses controversial morality on a more personal basis. In a kill or be killed situation, is it justified. Not really deep, but at least it shows both side of the coin compared to just the usual "this is right just because" sort of stuff you usually get.

I just watched season 1 of this on youtube. At first I thought it reminded me of TV gameshows with all the narration, but it's completely different. What surprised me most was how dumb Kaiji sounded in the first episode and how intelligent he proves to be under pressure (or once he begins to think for himself since he never really did before).
