DKaiji Chapters 101 & 102

Woo! Here's another double release for you guys! It's pretty prompt after our previous double release, no? Nothing much to say here, other than that these two chapters are both glorious in their own right.

But you guys can thank the crew here at FKMTkrazy for that! Js06 for his punctual scripts, Biggums for being a cleaning wizard, Kazuhiko for Chapter 102, and Sonizkrazy for his prompt proofreading.

One of THE best metaphors I've ever seen from Fukumoto.

DKaiji Chapters 99 & 100

Well, it's not a triple release, but it's the next best thing! A Double Release!! Here's to the start of the new Volume 11! I'm going to be honest here, Kazu had Chapter 99 done two days ago; he was just waiting on me for Chapter 100. In my defense, I had a pretty killer essay due, but now they're both here, so no harm no foul, right?

Thanks to Js06 for cranking out these scripts at ridiculous rates and to Crump for being so ahead of schedule (Volume 11 is already done cleaning-wise). Thanks to Kazuhiko for helping me out as well as increasing the release rate and to Sonickrazy for adding the personality into all the character's dialogues during his proofreading.

Ah! AhhhHHHH! *Heart Attack*

DKaiji Chapters 96 & 97 & 98

Hey guys, guess what? As a celebration for the great success that was non-Mahjong Mahjong Day, we have a gift for you all! Another Triple Release!! I'm been waiting a lot time to say this but what does that make? A Triple Triple Release!!! This is the what happens when you put the combined effort of FKMTkrazy all into one project. Absolute madness. I didn't even know we could run this fast.

This time, I'm adding another name to those whom which we owe our thanks. Js06, the translator, Biggums, the cleaner, Sonickrazy, the proofreader, aaaaand Kazuhiko, the typesetter who pretty much doubled (more than doubled if I do say myself) our typesetting speed.

Note from Sonickrazy: I'd say No-Mahjong Day was a smashing success, with 15 different people showing up and having it go for 6 solid hours! We'll be going back to regular Mahjong Day next week, but another E-Card game of epic proportions is sure to be in the making if we ever do it again!

Looks like Muraoka's...gone off the deep end! *Yeahhhhhhh*

DKaiji Chapters 93 & 94 & 95

Hoo boy, I don't wanna start spoiling you guys but look at this new Triple Release!! Yes, another Triple Release! Of course, this time it's thanks to our non-Kaiji typesetter Kazuhiko that this was able to come to fruition! I also do I have to mention that because of college and random illness (being in a lecture while sick SUCKS), releases might be...erratic. That's why we brought Kazuhiko on board! He'll be doing typesetting as well, to speed the process along even faster!

With that little message delivered, let us give thanks to the rest of the team! Js06 for his crystal-clear scripts, Biggums for his mad-yet-beautiful cleaning, and Sonickrazy for his lightning-strike proofreading. And of course, to Kazuhiko for his carefully consistent work on Chapter 95!

Note from Sonickrazy: ABSOLUTELY NO MAHJONG Day will be on Saturday at 22:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST). It will go until everyone has had enough, which has been after two hours in the past, but I have no idea how many people to expect, this time! It will be on http://xat.com/fkmtkrazy, and don't worry about showing up late; we'll get you in on the next game of whatever we're playing at the time if you're at all late.

Let the insanity begin.

DKaiji Chapters 90 & 91 & 92

Wait did I write that right? Is that three chapters of DKaiji? A...TRIPLE RELEASE?! Yep, that's right. We here at FKMTkrazy don't screw around when it comes to DKaiji. We love that manga. A big thanks to all who showed up yesterday for Mahjong Day! It was awesome seeing a bunch of new people there! Believe me, DKaiji is that much better is you know the mechanics of the game, so don't be afraid to show up and play!

Of course, all this can't be possible without the hard work of all those involved. Js06 for his fast translations, Biggums for his ahead-of-schedule cleans, and Sonickrazy for his prompt proofreading.

Note from Sonickrazy: Nobody cares, but Mahjongkrazy released another chapter of Death Pie. You can check it out in the "Mahjongkrazy Branch" link on the top of the page.

Kaiji probably would of face-palmed if his nose allowed it.

ABSOLUTELY NO MAHJONG ALLOWED Day


So, since I want to get to know some fans of Kaiji that don't show up to normal Mahjong Days because they don't know mahjong (I'm sure there's some, at the very least), I'm thinking of doing a day where absolutely no mahjong is played whatsoever, and instead we play some other FKMT-inspired games or just do some board games like checkers or something. But I do have some ideas for FKMT games, which I will describe below.

(These games are all compatible with xat.com/fkmtkrazy , which is where we will be hosting them)

E-Card

But wait, you say, you can't do E-Card! If you just have people say what they want to play, that would let them cheat by entering in their card after seeing what the other person played! Ah, but that's where you're wrong. It is easily fixed simply by adding a "Dealer" to whom the card choices are messaged, and by letting him reveal them and keep score and the like. I'm sure I don't have to detail how the game itself works with real cards, so let me go through the steps that the game will go through.

DKaiji Chapter 89

Hey guys. It's been a while. I know I said that I was gonna pick up the pace because of the DKaiji push but real life hit me hard. But it's OK because this chapter makes up for it! We finally get to see Kaiji unleash all his rage onto Maeda and Miyoshi!

Thanks to all who once again for allowing us all to view this beautiful chapter. Js06 for his scripts, Biggums for his cleans (who at this point has finished all cleans up to Volume 10 :o), and Sonickrazy for his astute proofreading.

Note from Sonickrazy: Mahjong Day is this Saturday at 22:00 GMT on http://xat.com/fkmtkrazy. Even those who don't know how to play are welcome to come and learn!

Unleash the Kaiji-Hulk.

So. What happened in this chapter? Well last time we left off, Kaiji had just pulled off his out-of-the-blue "toss my current hand and pull in a new one" tactic. And off course, he's not even close to being done with yelling at those two. Surprisingly, he doesn't even get too mad at Muraoka! I find this quite interesting, as it is a lot different from the Kaiji we remember from the beginning of the series. In the beginning, being tricked led him to becoming enraged and attacking the one who conned him. But this time, he admits to Muraoka that it was his fault for being tricked, and that the one he is really mad at, justifiably so, is at Maeda and Miyoshi.

But just as Kaiji is finished yelling at them, just as he demands from them a reason for the betrayal, they fire right back! From their point-of-view, they have all the reason to do so! Kaiji didn't give them their "fair" share after he defeated The Bog! He didn't split him generous winnings equally with them! But as selfish as it seems, the point is that they don't know that Kaiji, after a unfortunate incident, lost the majority of his money! So now what do we have? A mad Kaiji who demands a fair game, but definitely has some kind of plan, and a shocked Muraoka, who's previously "inevitable" victory has just been turned to dust.

Meanwhile, Kazuya chuckles mysteriously...

Akagi Chapter 161

Man, we're fast! Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the first chapter of the next volume of DKai-... wait, what? Akagi? We're still doing that? Hmm. Well, I guess you have to wait a bit longer for Volume 10 of DKaiji, all we have for you today is more of Akagi. At least it's a pretty cool chapter.

Thanks to Crump for tearing himself away from DKaiji long enough to clean this chapter, and to Kazuhiko for typesetting it and doing the sweet ending page. Mahjong Day is this Saturday at 22:00 GMT.

"This dealing of Pei was a matter of life and death!"

DKaiji Chapter 88

I heard you guys like Kaiji, so I thought I'd finish the next chapter extra fast just to get it to guys more quickly. It's not like I was procrastinating on college papers or anything. I just love you guys.

And of course, thanks to those who did the all the heavy lifting before it got to me. Js06 for his scripts, Biggums for his cleans, and Sonickrazy for his proofreading.

Kaiji's smirk gave me chills.

Oh. My. Ultimate being. Now that's something I didn't expect. The readers and commenters were right. There is no way Kaiji's "Plan A" would work. It's just way to simple. And of course, Muraoka doesn't have any Ton to deal in for the first place. But Muraoka doesn't know that. He's kind of in a state of extreme happiness and has as much of an attention span as an ant.

But completely break the hand he made up? Throw away the 3-way wait and the hidden Ton wait? Is this something he had planned beforehand? Was it something random? Well it had better been because his new hidden hand has to be in tenpai in order to work. It's just...I cannot wait to see Muraoka's reaction next chapter, and really, I know you guys can't either. In my opinion, this is the last game, since if Kaiji doesn't win, Muraoka will. And I don't know...Kaiji doesn't always win...

Zawa...zawa...

DKaiji Chapters 86 & 87

Whoa?! Another double release of Kaiji? Yes it is. In these chapters, we discover Kaiji's plan...or do we? I still don't know.

Give a round of applause to all the members that help put this beautiful piece of manga together for you guys! Js06 for the all-important translation, Biggums for his uncannily perfect cleans, and of course Sonickrazy for his proofreading that makes the dialogue come to life!

Best Poker Face Ever.

Rude 39 Chapter 5

Haha, you thought Akagi was next? Surprise! It's another chapter of Rude 39, and in my opinion, it's a big step up from Chapter 4. In this chapter, we meet yet another member of the Miura family, Satomi's brother, Katsuhiko!

Thanks to Crump for doing double-duty on the Cleaning and Redrawing since Skutieos was not available, and to Kazuhiko for typesetting even though his hands were stiff from using a weed-wacker. Mahjong Day went well yesterday, let's get even more people this week. As always, it will be on Saturday at 22:00 GMT.

"There's always more than one way to get where you want to go!"

DKaiji Chapter 85

And right after a double release of Kaiji we have another chapter for you guys! This one marks the beginning of Kaiji's counterattack! Whatever that means.

Thanks as usual to those who helped make this chapter a possibility for you all. Js06 for the translation, Biggums for the cleaning, and Sonickrazy for the proofreading.

Muroaka would make a great judge (aka gavel-smasher)

Akagi Chapter 160

And to finish off the Volume, we have for you the 160th chapter of Akagi! Will Washizu's underlings really act on their own?!

Thanks to Crump for the speedy cleans and to Kazuhiko for the speedy typesetting. I have a fair amount of Rude 39 chapter 5 done, so I think I'll finish that before moving on to Volume 19, but you're crazy if you think we're going to go back to Hero or something after this cliffhanger. Mahjong Day is Saturday at 22:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST).

Oh, and THIS is the most amazing reaction I have seen since I started this group, a big thank-you to whoever made that!

"Don't make me repeat myself...! I. Will. Draw. This. Pei!!"

Akagi Chapter 159

And right after the double release of DKaiji, we have for you... a single release of Akagi! What fantastic timing! In this chapter, Washizu's Henchmen's concern reaches its peak...!

Thanks to Crump for the lightning-fast cleaning, and to Kazuhiko for the excellent typesetting. Mahjong day did not happen last time, but that doesn't mean it's gone for good! Let's try again this week, on Saturday at 22:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST).

"Here and now... accept this Dealer Double Yakuman!!"

DKaiji Chapters 83 & 84

Oh what's this? A double release? For Kaiji? No way! Yes way in fact. Very yes way.  Kaiji's got a plan up his sleeve and by Jove I will find out what it is, even if it's three volumes from now.

Thanks to js06 for his excellent translations, Biggums for his Photoshop magic cleans, and Sonickrazy for his speedy proofreading. And so, we move onto the chapters.

Muraoka knows how to keep his people in line.
