Kazuya-Hen Chapters 56-60

Yeah, you've all been waiting for this, and it's a good thing that our lovely cleaners have still been working on Kaiji so I could just marathon through these chapters on my day off. In these chapters, will the 13th round go as Kazuya so maliciously predicts?

Thanks to Tambur for the cleans and typesetting, and to Jatelion for the redraws on this one. There will be a Mahjong Night this Saturday at 22:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST), and I'll be streaming more of the Tetsuya Digest video game this Friday at 21:00 GMT (2:00 PM PST).

Chapter 56
Chapter 57
Chapter 58
Chapter 59
Chapter 60

Volume 6 Batch





I'm just gonna give my thoughts on all 5 chapters at once because I don't really feel like going through each one again. I thought they were cool, and I love how smart-alecky Kazuya gets once someone actually starts considering killing their friends. I think Chang's my favorite of the Asian Three; he wants to be loyal and is actually quite smart, but he is the first to actually doubt his friends, which could actually be his intelligence getting the better of him. If everyone was as naive and trusting as Mario this game wouldn't work, so in a way it's good to see him doubting his friends because it shows he's not dumb. I dunno how other people are gonna feel about it, but that's what I think. END

  4. I pretty much agree with you about chang, an intelligent person considers all options, even if they may sound harsh at first. Of course, in this particular scenario the option he choose was the correct one.

    But what to do next round? I forgot, but is it possible to forfeit the game, losing all the money but saving all their lives?

    1. In chapter 16 page 15 Kazuya says: "They can't press the release button in the first 30 seconds or they'd be disqualified." Disqualification means no prize money but they get to stay alive.

      Now, if "release button" means the seatbelt button then they're disqualified. If it's not, if Chang presses the button they can continue, but I think Kazuya left the "release button" a gray area just for this situation.

    2. That was kind of lost in translation, he specifically referred to the button at the front of the room in Japanese.

    1. I have a backlog of manga that I'm going to scan and put on rawscans, that's one of them. So It doesn't exist on the internet right now but it will.

    2. Cool, thanks!

  7. Wait a minute, you can press the seatbelt release button before the 30 sec limit?

    Doesn't that undermine one of the key elements of the Game?

    I mean why wait 30 sec? Top can push the button right away, middle has to wait for a few secs and lower can even do the hand sign for maximum safety

    Hell, the whole drama with Mario would not have happened without the 30 sec rule

    What am i missing?

    1. I don't think you're missing anything. I think it's a restriction Kazuya made at the beginning of the game but he only states they can't press the "release button" (chapter 15) before 30 seconds have passed.

      We don't really know what he meant by release button: the one on the player's chair or the one to clear the stage. That's what I got from reading chapter 15 again.

  9. So it's back to nothing again for over 2 weeks now? Come on guys, put something out. Preferably not another Washizu chapter or one of the smaller ones. There's so much of Akagi and Kaiji to be covered, still.

    1. You need to look at it from a different Angle. We already got 6 Chapter this Month, so they could have released one chapter every 5 Days and everyone would praise them for their steady releases

      But with the current pace of the Kaiji arc its obviously better to release them in bulks

      Delete
    2. Nobody would be praising them for such a substandard pace. They can do a little better than 5 chapters followed by 18 days of nothing. They *have* done better. I don't need to look at it from a different angle, but you need to stop defending them at all fucking cost.

    3. Quit whining about how slow or fast these 100% free and voluntary releases are. They're probably busy, or doing other projects, or God forbid taking a break.

      Delete
    4. Ah, pointing out that something is voluntary and free as a means of deflecting criticism. The last refuge of a man with no argument. Just because you do something of your own accord and don't charge for it does not mean that you can do no wrong. If you create a public obligation for yourself to do something and set a certain standard for yourself, people have every right to call you out on your bullshit. Fuck off, defense force.

      Delete
    5. Seriously, that shitty argument is applicable to literally anything they could potentially do. Decrease the quality of scans? Typos everywhere? Stop bitching you troll, it's free and voluntary. You can't find Kaiji/Akagi scans anywhere else, which means it's okay.

      You just KNOW that you're the definition of defense force and tribal mentality when you need to shoot down perfectly legitimate feedback as "whining".

    6. Gotcha there, Sonny

      They haven't set a certain standard. There is no claim from FKMTcrazy that they will translate a certain amount of chapters in a specified amount of time

      What you think is appropriate is only your one personal judgement and they have no obligation to adhere to it

      Delete
  10. well I you have no chance to find scanlations of akagi and kaiji in other places... so , there

    1. "Monopolies should a common occurance and they should be allowed to do whatever the fuck they want, because that always works out well for everyone."

    2. I honestly don't see why another group doesn't pick up Kaiji. Its one of Fukumoto's most well-known and loved series and it has a decent sized following on 4chan. Are groups/people just avoiding translating it because FKMTKrazy is translating it or does no one care enough to translate it besides them? I mean the scans aren't even hard to find; I have all the scans from part 4 so far including poker-hen so I doubt that would be an issue.

      Delete
  11. They ARE free to "take a break" (one that would be much more appropriate once they're, y'know, done scanlating all the stuff that's out) or focus on other things, and I am free to complain about their inactivity here. That is the consequence of them lazying around too much. It really is that simple.

    1. Wow, what an entitled cunt. FKMTkrazy owes you absolutely nothing, they are free to drop every project they are working on, or to put them on hiatus, or to release a chapter per year if they want to. Nobody is forcing you to read their scans, you can buy the volumes and pay a guy to translate it for you. They are doing a very good job releasing this shit for free at a perfectly reasonable pace, taking time from their lives to do this without asking for nothing in return simply because they love Fukumoto's work and wish to share it with others. And not only it's free, but they actually pay out of their pockets to buy the tankobon. If you are expecting every manga to have a Naruto tier release schedule you need to chill.
