One Poker Hen 135

One Poker Hen 135 is upon us!

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

 "He's leading him on!"


A surprising development. Kazuya actually took the bait! It seems we have moved into a new level of play with this chapter. Kazuya checking expressions while also fake raising to watch Kaiji's reactions. This is all high level play, much different from what we have seen so far.

This reminds me of a certain situation in another Fukumoto Manga, Gambling Emperor Zero. Everything about how it's set up is almost exactly like this chapter, from the way Kazuya has the life in his hand, to checking the expressions, to fake raising to see how Kaiji reacts. It's like a picture perfect copy and I LOVE IT!

From here on I feel like the level of play is going to escalate dramatically. Everyone needs to keep their expressions in check. Loose lips sink ships as they say.

  1. I'm happy that I was a bit close about the expressions thing.
    I LOVE that they show the chinese guy's thoughts as well, as well as the fact that they don't really show the other guys'. For a long while we didn't have any allies for Kaiji, I hope Fukumoto is planting the seeds for a long-term reward in character development.

    Thank you so much for the translations, I felt like the escalation of mind-play in this chapter is a sign of cool things to come.

  2. TY for chapter.

    I would love to see now Kaiji's call and Kazuya's another raise followed by announcement than Kaiji actually has 5 lives (2 figures + 2 Asians + Kaiji), not 2.

    1. Remember that these lives are worth the earnings of a salaryman who works their whole lives to attain that wealth. The Asian trio certainly aren't worth nearly that much in that respect. Kaiji would be the only exception in that case since he'd be playing.

      Only thing that would make me second guess that, is what Kazuya said at the end of the last arc, that he would test Kaiji for sure to see if that so called selflessness of his was real. He'd would try to crush their friendship.

      A man with a silver tongue can lead even a saint to hell.
