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.

You're overthinking this one

Crenshinibon, I think your disappointments are unwarranted in that you were looking for something in this manga that wasn't there. It's a shounen manga about gambling. Are you expecting some hard psychology or something? Were you expecting something smarter, like Monster or Pluto!?

For what it is, it is very enjoyable. The main character's mind and social tricks are all very interesting to watch as the manga unveils them. It's like a detective manga but the mystery in this manga is how is he going to beat his next opponent. I thought the part in the story with the rail tracks was very interesting and amusing to read.

And the characters aren't very fleshed out yet, not much is even known about the main character and his opponents haven't been all cookie cutters.

So if you've read this far, this manga is a go. A very enjoyable and light read.

This manga is actually pretty good. I think it is also very original, cause I can't recall another manga telling a story of a kid who is a gambling master and everything he does is calculated to perfection even when he is losing.... Anyway, at first I was reluctant to pick it up but then from just the first 2 chapters I got hooked. I just hope that they guys that scanlate it doesn't drop it halfway cause it's really good
If you in the need of something smart, you should probably give this a shot

Lol... It was ok in the beginning but things got waaay out of reality after the first gambles. Now it's just exaggerated, impossible situations and retarded explanations. Definitely, it tries to be smarter than what it is. Maybe I'm getting too old for manga?

Kinda Crazy

In the beginning I thought this was a nifty little series with some cool mental puzzles to solve. However, after each gamble the series gets crazier and crazier until you have no idea what to make of the whole thing and stare at it in disbelief. Just to give you an idea, by the third major gamble there's a man dressed up like satan/count dracula getting ready to saw off the main character's finger with a freaking chainsaw. I don't know whether the series is better or worse because of this insanity, but it is certainly standing out from other similar series. For what it's worth though, I still enjoy the mental puzzles.

you know it started out great, but then BAM it goes wahooni shaped. i hope all these craziness can be properly explained because there's so much suspension of disbelief and the littlest one is F cup on 15 year old girls.

edit:
im gonna put this on hold at 43ch, im gonna try again when it got completed

I hate how this series tries to make the character insanely smart when it comes to gambling.... It just doesn't work out because the author cannot come up with adequate explanations that actually logically follow the situation.

Everything is totally exaggerated past hilarity, to the point of making me dizzy. I don't know, but Liar Game is more grounded in reality.

This manga is great, the author has done some research
The best thing about this manga is no supernatural stuff, all of this is possible IRL
Every chapter is exciting than the previous

This could very well pass as seinen manga

"Psychological" and "strategical minds" for idiots only

It's very lame when a writer want's to show off how genial a strategist a person is, but his "genial" strategy is full of holes and logical errors or inconsistencies so it would be very hard to agree with him/her.

the best thing about this manga to me is harem and psycho combine together. plus great story. All his opponent is girls~.^ I hope he not fall in love with anyone but hope every girls fall for him. and really x 1000 hope this manga will continue like yugioh. And this manga is not only good but great because we don't always see thing like this, just go away for people who don't like it. just read something else, it stupid to see stupid comment. Just watch god of gamble.
