Gamble Fish  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
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.

A part of the story that perfectly displays how ridiculous this manga is:

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Two teens from a rich kids' school have a gambling match overseen by a teacher, with the student body as audience, where loser will have 1200 degrees hot, burning coal dropped on their head.

I can't be the only one thinking that, even on manga standards, what the fuck.

The series takes itself too seriously. It would probably be a great series if it was a bit less serious and a bit more comedy-oriented. The author has done some great work on what seems to be the main villain, and although the mc and those around him are quite plain, the series has a whole bunch of good and interesting details. Too much sex factor though; I'm a guy, so I don't actually MIND the nudity that much, as long as it's somehow situationally logical and not just completely random, added only to get more teenage boys to read it. In this manga the latter type is strong.

That said, I'm still at around chapter 50-60, will have to see how the story progresses, and in case there's some improvement I may end up changing my opinion on this series.

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.

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?

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.

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

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.

It's an okay manga, the story is quite simple really but the tricks and the way he tries to accomplish his goals is clever and for me the most attractive part of the story. The characters get on my nerves alot because of their personalities, the main character is really smug and all the girls just fall for him. But now I'm reading it by releases and it's lost it's spark. So I recomend reading it in blocks and if you don't enjoy it after a couple of chapters drop it. There's no point sticking with it.

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.

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.
