DKaiji Chapter 60

Another chapter of DKaiji folks! We finally get to see what Kaiji has in mind! Thanks to js06 for the quick translation, Biggums for sending me the cleans ahead of time, and Sonickrazy for proofreading it pronto.

"Yah-hah-hah...!"

Ooh, Kaiji really took a gamble this time. Leaving the room just like that is just inviting Muraoka to take a peek at his tiles. And in fact, this is actually Kaiji's intent all along! Why pull such a suicidal move at such a crucial juncture? Because it's Kaiji of course! High risk and high gain is the word of the game! But in all seriousness, he is actually very clear-minded about all this. When it comes down to it, he either has to give up trusting Miyoshi and Maeda and stick with his hand by himself, or give up his hand to confirm his two "comrades" allegiances. In all honestly, even if Kaiji had gone down the "keep his hand" path, and it turned out Miyoshi and Maeda were traitors, his amazing hand would have been for naught anyways. It would have been picked apart and demolished by Muraoka and his two conspirators, and would leave Kaiji destitute and even more unsure about his old pals.

And so, to the absolute glee of Muraoka (I learned several new ways to laugh maniacally during this chapter), Kaiji is forced to allow his hand to be revealed.  Kaiji does consider the "Young Master" that lent him the 50 million, but wisely concludes that the "Young Master" would have no real stake in his hand, and so would probably allow cheating to take place. A smart move, as the worst thing Kaiji could do at this point is place his faith where it does not belong. And since no one in the room is guaranteed to be on his side, it is almost inevitable that cheating will take place. With millions to gain and nothing to lose, who wouldn't? Certainly a greedy and corrupt Muraoka would not hesitate, Kaiji deduces. 


Now the only thing to do is find out whether or not Miyoshi and Maeda will inform him of any foul deed committed. But just in case, Kaiji has to have some sort of backup plan...right?

  1. Wonderful, thanks Pengy! I'm excited for the next chapter to see more of Kaiji's plan, just how exactly does he intend to learn whether or not Miyoshi and Maeda are on his side? How does this impromptu bathroom break change things? Maybe I'm just being dense, or maybe it hasn't been revealed yet. How does letting the President sneak a peek at his hand help Kaiji see his friend's true motives?

    1. To tell you the truth, we're on the same boat here. I spent 10 minutes reading and rereading the chapter thinking that I missed something. How will Kaiji know if he's betrayed or not? Only Chapter 61 knows...

  4. Umm, guys, just out of curiosity, I wanted to ask... on the 21st page of Akagi , Washizu says - "That fool. He has just entered the place THAT he will die" I am still learning english,but is it ok to say it like that?... shouldnt it be "WHERE he will die" instead : )

    1. Mmm, yeah, probably should've been where... "That" gets used informally, but it's not really gramatically correct. In fact, I think "The place he will die" would have been better, leaving out the word entirely. English is confusing at times, I don't really get it myself. >_>

  6. @RussianGuy, yeah I would agree that replacing the word "That" with "Where" or "In which" would be a better choice grammatically.
