Kaiji: Largest exhibition ever to be held actual-size “Numa” photo spot created

An exhibition of Nobuyuki Fukumoto's popular manga "Kaiji" series "Gyakkyokaikoroku DaiKaijiten" will be held at Tokyo Dome City Gallery AaMo (Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo) from March 16th to May 12th, 2024. That's what I found out. The largest exhibition ever. We look back at the many "adversities" depicted in the series through exhibitions of original drawings and famous scenes, including those shown for the first time. A key visual drawn by Fukumoto for the exhibition was also released.

In addition to photo spots that recreate famous scenes such as ``Steel Beam Crossing'' and ``Yaki Dogeza'', a actual-size photo spot of Teiai Ura Casino's one-shot pachinko machine ``Numa'' will be created through crowdfunding. Tickets will be sold in addition to regular tickets, as well as tickets that come with limited edition T-shirts.

In the Kaiji series, Kaiji, a corrupt young man, takes on a life-threatening gamble by becoming a guarantor for his friend and taking on a huge debt. ``Gambling Apocalypse: Kaiji'' was serialized in ``Weekly Young Magazine'' (Kodansha) from 1996 to 1999, and the latest series ``Tobaku Datenroku Kaiji: 24 Oku Dasshutsu-hen'' is currently being serialized. In addition to being made into an anime, it was also made into a live-action film starring Tatsuya Fujiwara.
