One Poker-hen 118

Kaiji and Kazuya continue their crazy game of One Poker! I have a feeling that there's a lot that's gonna happen this chapter!

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

One Poker-hen 118

"It is an unending nightmare!"

So, contrary to my above comment, mostly nothing happens this chapter. We see Kaiji get a 6, which is the second best DOWN card, which isn't TERRIBLE, but still... Kazuya gets an unknown DOWN card. We don't know which DOWN card he plays, so we have no idea whether he will win or lose. 

It's nice to Kaiji planning for down the road for when he gets in a tight spot. Planning for the worst of times in the best of times is really something I like to see go through his head. What I really want to see though, is Kaiji planning for the WORST case scenario. The game is rigged. Kazuya knows everything you have. He's playing you like a fool.

Of course, since we get to see inside Kazuya's head and hear his thought processes, it's not like he isn't struggling. So that isn't the case.

  1. I've noticed a TV behind Kazua. And I don't think it is just a decoration, Fukumoto must have plans how to use it in the next chapters

  2. Since Kazuya played 6 last time when he had no chance of winning, the likelihood of him having a 7 is high, and since Kazuya already folded twice in row and once to a lower card, he might decide that enough is enough and think that Kaiji would still keep his "treasure of an up card".

    Instead of playing the 6-card, Kaiji could have played his King without checking, so it would seem like he played a low card, inviting his opponent to raise (If Kazuya does indeed have a 7).

    1. Oops! I seem to have left some words out. Too late now to fix. That's what happens when you don't proofread what you've just written.

  3. In the previous chapter Kaiji was floating in the sky and now he is down to earth... What the hell is FKMT thinking? Where did Kaiji find this self control?

    1. "It is an unending nightmare!" → Basically how it feels to wait a week for a chapter that has almost nothing that important / interesting on it. I love the translation tho!

    2. yeah I agree. This Manga is great if you have 100+ chapters to catch up on, but if you are waiting for 1 chapter each week it can drive you crazy!
      Not translators fault there, of course, and he is doing a great job!
      Thanks so much, really appreciate your work!
