Moved it here. So Akiyama betrayed him, but he will probably pay off some of the debt that the players have in the end. And as usual he will continue playing on with Nao. Well, it seems more and more in this arc that Kimura will reveal her true self to her group, who seems do not know.
I don't entirely buy that he has no plan yet, Kimura's pushing the whole "Akiyama really abandoned him it's hopeless after all!" angle way too hard for there not to be some kind of reversal.
I don't know if he has a plan to win persay though, might just be something to make sure they aren't totally screwed.

Chapters like this are a big reason why I'm starting to hate this series.
-Absolutely no other characters make a move because Kaitani is too lazy to think of them, and no, I don't consider throw away bids to be legitimate moves (All the other characters with lots are going to have to make moves at some point in time. It might as well be sooner rather than later)
-Everything that happened in this chapter will invariably be reversed in 2-3 chapters. Has that ever not happened with "negative" developments?
-The observers telling us what is happening rather than letting the readers experience it. You could literally remove anything and everything they said from this chapter and it would not negatively impact it.
Akiyama and the guy are just acting.
Well, as far as the observer goes I think their input is generally relevant. True, in this chapter most of what they said could be removed except for the part about akiyama actually abandoning kawai. Generally the observers are familiar with the game so the fact that even they could not at least point out akiyama could have a plan is important. Right now the situation is that the observers could be right and akiyama lied or akiyama actually figured out an aspect of the game with which the observers are not familiar with.
Anyways, I can't say I loved the chapter either. Nothing epic happened and there wasn't any real advancement with the game, what happened was exactly what was said was going to happen last chapter without so much as a plot twist (at this point even adding an evil twin brother to the mix will help). Anyways, there is the consideration that this was merely a setup chapter, the next one should be more interesting and perhaps even show some form of counterattack.
Added a poll, boring chapter, Kaitani really wants us to be bored while we are reading these uneventful chapters. Akiyama may pull something and he may not, yeah and?! We were already left with this in the last chapter kind of, now we just know that he betrayed him. A bit more should be added to the chapter. Plus it is not progressing the plot, nor the current game.
I really want to see the break up of Harimoto's group happen in this arc.
Yeah there really wasn't a lot going on this week.
Alright chapter but could've been more interesting.
That's another issue I have. Am I supposed to feel sympathy for these d-bags or not? As of now, I wouldn't care if I was told that the losers had their organs sold on the black market because almost all of the characters in this series are utterly lacking anything resembling redeeming qualities. They demand that everyone save them yet do nothing to deserve it.
I am now more interested then ever to find out what is his plan.
I think he might have understood that the other group wouldn't stop there, that they would want an overwhelming victory, and that they would try to make everyone else fall.
I think that his strategy somehow revolves around that.
