For this episode, Jared and Ink talk about Kaiji – the anime about a hapless loser with a heart of gold (and a gambling problem). This anime from 2007, which adapts part of Nobuyuki Fukumoto’s original manga, is competitive gaming like you’ve never seen before and still stands out visually and thematically among its peers. So listen in and find out all that’s to love about the first season of Kaiji!
