This is shounen...

...so the relative lack of danger to life and limb and the characters' somewhat kinder behaviour towards each other is understandable, imo. And while it is a bit disappointing that the main story isn't continued here and only a passing mention is made of Zero's adventures a couple of years ago, this part does do a decent job acting as an interlude that bridges the gap between part 1 and the future part 3, and Fukumoto Nobuyuki's puzzles are as clever as they come.

Another plus is that unlike the glacially-paced Tobaku Mokushiroku Kaiji, Tobaku Haouden Rei moves at a steady clip that's compatible with the plot -- which is certainly a big deal when the mangaka's notorious for stretching out the suspense 'til it can stretch no more.

And I don't see why the protagonist's life has to be in danger for a story focused on mind games to be interesting, so unlike MondSemmel, below, I do not recommend skipping this part if you're capable of appreciating Fukumoto's manga for what they are and not for what you think a shounen/seinen manga should be.

A disappointing followup.

I'm not sure why one would make the followup to a life and death gamble story less intense than said story. In the ten volumes of this part 2, Zero's life or health is only in danger for one gamble 2-3 volumes in! For the final ~6 volumes, there's no threat to Zero's life; more importantly, he isn't even gambling. What the hell.

It doesn't help that the story ends with
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
such a bizarrely amiable resolution: the victim forgives the one who kidnapped and confined him for three years...


If part 3 will return to ultra high-stakes gambling, I'll be interested again. But even in that case, I might actually recommend skipping volumes 5-10 of part 2.

Not really a follow up

I find it somewhat lacking as a follow-up to the original zero because it doesn't really continue that plotline at all. That's not to say it isn't a tense and exciting FUKUMOTO manga, but I wanted to see the original's plot continued.

It's still a good series though
