I'm wondering if there are more genius manga out there like in Death Note, Lost+Brain, Code Geass.

The genius doesnt have to to be evil, but he does have to be at least selfish or working for someone that's not good.

Liar Game and Kurosagi
Akiyama and Kurosagi are quite clever at what they do, but i wouldn't compare them to Death Note or Lost+Brain. The World God Only Knows neither, but all three are quite alright smile

Yellow Dragon ga Arawareta!

Evil genius with lots of comedy! wink I wouldn't compare it to Death Note or Kurosagi though, since you don't get any information about how he does his magic stuff.... smile
But it's really hilarious!! And he's really evil and a genius, too

I second Liar Game and Kurosagi. Although I've watched the drama more then the manga. I dunno if they could be considered evil though...

If you don't mind an idiotic evil genius in a romantic comedy, then check out Hajimete no Aku. The guy is an evil genius, but he has almost zero social graces.

Banana Fish has a genius as the main character but he's not really evil. He does bad stuff but only when forced into it, A great story though and definitly as intense as Code: Geass or Death Note.

Yasha - Again genius as main character. So far it seems the company who basically kidnapped him is up to no good. Unfortunately only 3 chapters are scanlated with new scans slow at best so I couldn't say for sure how well this fits. Same author as Banana fish though so likely to be good and may be worth keeping an eye on.

Sanctuary - Not really what I'd call genius but they are good. 2 main characters with ambitious aims to change Japan. It's dark and deep so you might like it and bed deeds get done. A tad farfetched at times but a brilliant read anyway.

That's all I can think of, hope it helps.

The pen is mightier than the sword...and considerably easier to write with.

MPD Psycho
Usogui could count
Akusaga the protagonist is pretty evil, alright, but not so sure about the genius part (more like above-average intelligence)
Tsumi to Batsu the main character pretty much becomes a criminal, I would say he thinks he's pretty smart himself, but in reality...hmm.

Historie, maybe? He may not be evil, he's actually really noble, but he's what I'd call a Badass Genius.

I second MPD Psycho great serious/evil/genius manga (especially on the evil part) its all about serial killers and a detective that has dissociative identity disorder (multiple personality disorder if your not up to date with your psychological disorders) and probably isn't far from the serial killers in mindset (i don't wanna spoil it or anything, so i'll leave it at that) warning it's mature very mature.

I also second Gamble Fish because it's a good series (not extremely evil more on the vengeance side) and the main character pretty much is a genius and The World Only God Knows (but this isn't much of a evil genius story at all so if you really want evil genius just stick with MPD psycho)

Bloody Monday: A genius hacker but a good guy fighting against terrorist. Has a complete series and a second season is running. The 1st season is one of my favorites and i recommend it to any1.

Zennuo no Noa: a genius for sure and seems evil but we dont know yet. Theres another genius he is fighting against but im not sure wich one is more evil. Its really interesting.
