Fukumoto is truly a brilliant author. I enjoyed the gambles in this story tremendously. Not a 10/10, however, for the strange way this Part 1 of the story ends. The whole story was about luck not playing a role, and then to have something like that happen... It's not like this inversion makes no sense at all, but I still didn't like it.

It ends at a cliffhanger! So there's a sequel to it... I dint knw that b4 I started, so I now have to read d sequel too
The story's good so I dont mind, but I cant say d same abt the art... Its not bad, just old n not pretty...

Also, its really weird that there wasn't a single female character in this entire manga!! biggrin

Although not as dark as Kaiji and Akagi (it is a shounen after all), his other known works , this doesn't make it bad. In fact, it is still brilliant. It's quite relieving actually to read a Fukumoto manga without the complexies of mahjong in it. All the games are simple and easy to understand with the catch that it's actually not fair and that it's a gamble with your life of course.

You like gambling? You like psychological games? You like lies, deceit, and trickery? This is your manga.

It's a shounen to the core.Characters don't have the same reasons for gambling as in Kaiji.They are just greedy,so the manga won't draw your attention with the psychological issues.Also the riddles are stupid which are based on mathematical issues of a 2nd year middle school kid.I would personally prefer Fukumoto to end this manga as soon possible so as to work more on Kaiji.

Not at all original, since this could've easily just been an arc of Kaiji. Zero even resembles a younger, less desperate Kaiji. But if you like Fukumoto's mind games, and puzzles, you'll most likely enjoy it. Keep in mind that this ran in a shounen magazine, though. I've only read 3 volumes, but it might be a tad less hard-boiled.

Fukumoto Nobuyuki does it again, this time with a more gambling related theme. To those new to this author, the art might just look bad and ugly, but if you like the psychological aspect of gambling you might still like it. If you had already read some other Fukumoto's manga, and liked it, it's almost a must read.
