Well, it's popular, it's down to earth...no big deal. Definitely more suitable for a live action than, say, Death Note.
I'm not digging the main lead though.

Nobuyuki Fukumoto's works are actually pretty popular in Japan. Both Akagi and Kaiji are his most well known works. They both had successful TV series (with the latter getting a second season in the Spring), and had plenty of amusement parlor games made in their license.

Personally, I really loved the Kaiji TV series. Very underrated show with fantastic direction and faithfulness to Fukumoto's original manga. So, I am eager to see what they'll do for the live action movie. I just don't expect them to wear fake noses though... Wink

ZAWA ZAWA....ZAWA!!!

The real question is whether our death note actor will have that Mullet we all know and love.

Will the actors for the live action film have to put on pointy fake noses?

I would laugh so hard if that happened.

But I doubt it. They didn't do that for the live action Akagi movie so it's highly unlikely they'll do it for the live action Kaiji movie.
