Summary: Some guy is deeply in debts. One day he got an offer to go on a cruise to participate a gambling game. If he wins, all debts are wiped out. If he loses, he'll be doing hard labor for next two years. He accepted the offer. Now the unusal gambling game begins.

Richard's rating: 4 - Surprisingly good

Personal comments: The animation art bothers me. It bothered me so much, I was ready to throw it away before I wathed it. Luckily, I scanned through the episode and saw something really interesting. So I decided to go ahead and give it a shot. Despite how much the art work bothers me, I actually find it very very interesting. So interesting that I went ahead to fetch the second episode and watched it right there.
