I'm surprised at how successful it is too. I mean, Kaiji is not a very mainstream show (to say the least), yet it's bringing in quite a lot of cash. It guess it has its lot of faithful fans.

Why would Japan care if Brad Pitt was promoting it?

It's a sequel, the original movie topped the box office and got high ratings when aired on TV...dunno what "mainstream" means but it looks like whatever the movies have done is working to put butts in the seats.

It's PC for dumbing down, similar to the the way the Video Game industry uses the term "casual".

They've always loved their "Burapi." Laughing
