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

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.
