Kaiji: The Ultimate Gambler

Preview by Jack Foley

ON JULY 26, 2010, Japanese anime series Kaiji is brought to life on DVD.

The film brings together a young and talent cast who are famed for their roles in cult films Death Note, 20th Century Boys and Battle Royale; creating a gripping tale relevant to a generation lost in the recession. To celebrate the release of Kaiji we have 5 copies to give away.

Kaiji is the story of Ito (Tatsuya Fujiwara, Death Note/Battle Royale) who moves to Japan after graduating from high school. Unable to find a job and frustrated with society at large, Kaiji spends his days gambling, vandalising cars, and drinking.

Two years later and his life is no better. A debt collector named Endo arrives to collect payment. She then offers two choices to Kaiji: spend 10 years paying off his loan or board a gambling boat for one night to repay his debt and possibly make a whole lot more.

Meanwhile, the unscrupulous Endo is actually conning Kaiji, believing he won’t come back from his voyage. Kaiji is then up for the night of his life……
