Kaiji – The Future Is In Our Hands

In a similar style to Mother's Basement's "what's in an OP?" series I've always wanted to talk about anime openings and endings and now here's my chance with a really brilliant song which is near and dear to my heart: Mirai wa bokura no te no naka.

My Fall 2017 Anime Season Is Completely Empty: Kings Game [4]
