Description: The story is set at Shishidou, a school attended by rich and elite people. Tomu Shirasagi, a gambler, is a mysterious new transfer student who has come from a public school (instead of a prestigious private one) and faces the elitist environment. There, he declares a challenge toward any student and claims he will bring to the ruin the whole school through a series of gambling matches. Nobody knows why he has come to that school or what the real motivations behind his actions are.

During any match, Tomu shows off all of his unique coolness and ability.

He employs a wide range of tricks, both psychological and physical, to ensure his victory. In any game, you will constantly ask how he's planning to win, why he's really doing certain things, and what's really going on. At the end of the matches, the tricks are revealed, and they all work in real life, even if they do require one to be highly skilled or lucky in order to perform them.

The story centers around the various matches he undertakes and the interactions between the various characters, like Mika Shishidou, the beautiful granddaughter of the school headmaster, who is highly intelligent but contemptuous and superb, or Abidani, the vampiric looking dorm superintendent and main villain (for now) in the series, who has a sadistic personality and whose goal is to make Tomu leave his school (or to get him killed).

As the story unfolds, more about Tomu's past is revealed, leading to unpredictable turns of events.

series is actually over in japan, 19 volumes 167 chapters total but can't find raws for v14 which (to put it in perspective) was released in 2009

The whole american girl emily arc made me cringe..nobody has that kind of power, even if u rule the military networks you cant just order an Abrams or the Green berets to do shit like this its bad for US rep even if her daddy is super rich he cannot escape the amount of damage his name would take for allowing his daughter to call all the shots like that.
sorry about the rant its over now.

you mad-nificent bastard.

Little update :)

Thank you!

the last 2 chapters got me on the edge of my seat!!!

Babies first psychological "Just as keikaku" manga.

Little update :)

Final boss better be Mushroom head.

He's an idiot, 30 would also get Tomu 6 pieces.

wow, such face-altering skills. Much practical.
Atleast it's coming to an end.
Seems like there is some hiatus , or the scanlators aren't releasing anymore, temporarily.

One thing always prevented me from really liking reading it, in Usogui, the mangaka seems unable to draw chins O_o

Oh shit, chinless people :D

since the beginning of these finals, the delicate balance between awesomeness and whatthefuckness has been utterly destroyed. I dont get the reason why, but each chapter keeps adding more and more what the fucks to the scale, while the awesomeness is nowhere to be seen.

Why would Tomu's (fake?) father do that to him? wouldn't the flaming ball destroy the pattern that was set-up already? Unless he wants to win by making Tomu kill someone, I find his plan pointless...

pg. 1: yep, dat ass looks way better without colors

 

Also, If they're fakes I bet his "mum" is the girl in the cover.

If you're talking about the current front cover then I highly doubt that she is his mother since I think that was the girl that was with Abidani a few chapters ago.

Where did the keep those pigeons ?!?

Not wanting to start a war about which art's better or which manga is of better quality,
I'd love to  recommend Usogui, which also revolves around a gambler.
http://www.batoto.net/comic/_/comics/usogui-r646

It is one of my favourite manga's , as it's mature, psychological and has a really appealing artstyle / story.
//Comments on Gamble Fish :P

 

Tried reading it, looked really promising at first and was enjoying it, then every gamble turned into a DBZ fight taking over a dozen chapters each and the autor loves saying too little with too many words. Disappointing in the end.

2 posible  outcomes now, either its about to land in the magic girl's spot and she manages some way of escape, or it lands in a completely random spot and the match ends instantly with the father being kicked out for foul play (or he'll give up of his own accord)

I am reading this manga but everytime there is something over the top ridiculous. These are middle school students? What about Human right Laws? Why hasn't someone reported this nonsense that Abadani keeps doing?

 

Seriously I don't care how much influence that school has, it isn't fucking North Korea, I am saying it isn't its own country set apart from the rest of the world so how does all this shit they do go to wayside.

 

I know it is a manga and all, but it tries to keep itself ground in somewhat of reality and I can't help but judge it with reality. But the real problem I have with this manga is that are MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS!!! Ages 11-15 WTF? If they were high school students or college students I wouldn't have a single problem with this manga (other than why Abadani hasn't been capture and put on display as an exotic human hybrid of sorts) There isn't enough talent and experience in the world for what the MC is capable of doing in a middle schooler life span.

Guess we'll just have to go with an "Oh well..."

Mainly because it's a much better gateway and has better art compared to the manga you've listed, with Lair Game being the exception.

I really don't get the appeal of this manga.

 

If you want a great gambling manga, there's plenty of those already. Liar Game, One Outs, Akagi, Kaiji, Gambling Emperor Zero, really you can't go wrong with any of them. If you want ecchi well there's a near infinite supply of mangas that cater to that.

 

Why read a manga that tries to do both and ends up not doing a good job of either?

Okay.

I have no feels at all...

I have no taste at all.

Liar Game boring the lady isn'te ven that good of a player and its really the white haired guy doing all the work, One outs never read it, Akagi, this one game of Majogi has gone on for over 200 chapters....  Gambling Emperor not all that great imo.

 

Maybe we don't need to have such extremes, pretty much "if it isn't the best I wont watch it. or read it" medocre is fine too.
