Day 105/365

Kaiji Itou

From the anime Kaiji, Kaiji Itou is in poverty and lives life from day to day scrounging for meals and money to pay off his large debts. He tries gambling to see if that can solve his problems but that only seems to dig his hole deeper into debt because he never wins. He is  visited by a man one day that gives Kaiji two options - either spend ten years working hard labour to repay this outstanding debt, or board the gambling ship Espoir and hopefully clear it out in one night. Kaiji's intense journey begins here.

Why I like him: He takes crazy risks that I don't think your average person would even consider.

Why I hate him: He really whines a lot. I mean I understand about being broke all the time and having a hard time, but suck it up and do something that works to get out of your problem. Don't make it worse.

Overall: Kaiji is a love hate character but if you love intense situations check this show out. It made me squirm in my seat more than once.

Tears! There are many in Kaiji

    Hey, Kaiji breaks down sometimes (OK, a lot), but he always gets it back together in time to kick some gambling ass. Too bad he always gets screwed over like five seconds later. xD
