Kazuya-hen 92

A new week dawns and so a new Kaiji springs forth from the ground. What did Kazuya mean? How does Kaiji react?

Thanks to Sonickrazy for the translations and to Crump Biggums for the cleans.

Kazuya-hen 92

"There are people dying here!! I can't just watch this happen!"

Well, now this is interesting. 70 million Yen (roughly $700,000 USD) to save the two of them. Kaiji has around 480 million yen (roughly $4.8 million USD) that he won from Muraoka. He absolutely has the funds to save them. If he paid them off he'd still have in excess of 400 million yen (roughly $4 million USD) So he is set. The real question is, is he obligated to save them? Sure, human life is sacred and you must protect it, but there is a limit to how nice you can be. 
Kaiji has no obligation to help them. He never saw any of them before in his life. What does he stand to gain by giving up money he risked his life to make just hours earlier. Should he sacrifice his strength right now on these two to save them, making him weaker if he and Kazuya should duel. Obviously cash is king and the more you have the better your position is. Doing this right now could be an absolute loss to Kaiji later on. Say he lost to Kazuya and was 70 million debt. He'd be square if he doesn't give up anything now. It's a dangerous position he is in. It's not so simple a decision to make. I guess we'll see what his decision is.

  2. Kaiji hesistating here is really weird. Its just a small portion of his winnings and it just feels out of character to let them die over Money. Even thinking about the upcoming bet.

    I just don't see Kaiji as a guy taking anything other into account then the survival of the two.

    1. Yeah I'm sure he would pay for them. Kaiji is just too nice.
      Thanks for the chapter as always.

    2. He had money problems all his life. He literally spent years risking his life because of it. And he's rich since, like, 4 or 5 hours. There's no way he wouldn't hesitate at least a bit.

    3. On top of being rich just for 4 or 5 hours, he has never had friends, the closest thing he had betrayed him, and the test of friendship that was to prove him that humans are not trash, failed before his eyes.

      So why should Kaiji a man betrayed by all expectations now go out and stick out for them without at least a little bit of hesitation?

  3. Kinda reminds me of Akira Kurosawa film High and Low.

    Thanks for the translation.

  6. Thank you. Kaiji will obviously accept Kazuya's request, so not much of a cliff hanger.

  7. I thought Kaiji would trip over himself to pay the money. I guess he'll do that next chapter. Thanks!

  9. I'm just happy Kazuya isn't being an ass and demanding he pay more on top. That much is just fair.

  11. It's pretty obvious Kaiji is going to pay. But seriously, the moment afterwards between Chang, Mario, and Mitsuyama is going to be REALLY awkward.
