Summary

The story is set at Shishidou, a school attended by rich and elite people. Tom 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, Tom 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 Tom leave his school (or to get him killed).
As the story unfolds, more about Tom's past is revealed, leading to unpredictable turns of events.
Don't let the art of the cover fool you. (maybe typo in onemanga description. Main char name is Tomu ).
What caught my attention in this manga is the mind games and tricks used. The way everything is used is awesome making you want for the next ch. BTW, just incase. There is a game where he actually gets 1 finger cut (in card game) by a chainsaw so don't get stress about it . Also not sure why is called gamble fish... fish!? I am glad to actually tried to read it. The interesting games start with the chick doing magic with the cards.

Yeah, I've read this since the beginning, its been pretty decent for one of those Liar Game-type mangas. Tomu is indeed ingenious as to how he outwits some of his opponents, though the latest arc seems a bit more on the skill side of things, but its all good. Needs more King Piccolo though .

well, Tomu can +2 to his harem, and now he's getting ready to fight piccolo. Now THAT'S going to be interesting, since Abitani has seen through every trick Tomu has brought out so far. He's going to need more than gambler trickery to pull this one off.

I don't think what we are going to see is Abitani itself but his minions. I wonder what skills and what do they look like.

Well, I'd think if you were stuck in a dungeon with no sunlight getting tortured and beaten for weeks, months, possible years, you'd be a LIIIIIIITTLE off-kilter as well .

The manga is quite good, but I found it very disappointing that Toumu's friends are so extremely uninteresting at all. There is the stereotypical mushroom head and the even more stereotypical cheerleader with boobs. They have like zero personality at all. At least the magician and the billiard girl had slightly more depth to them.

And I don't get why the mangaka had to put some ecchi parts in it. Sex sells sure, but it's just bah, feeling out of place.

He does this with all his work. You should've seen his wrestler batman manga.

Holy crap, it's been a while since I've met a manga with such a purely devilish character as Tomu. He's like a walking Satan.

I really hope that Natsumi doesn't become a member of Tooru's team. Her jealous reaction was just too ridiculous in cp32
Also the new girl is way cuter

Sadly as soon as the girl was introduced I expected her to be a villain. I kind of blame the story because all the girls introduced have some ulterior motive when they first appear.

This series is amazing. The part I like best is all the stuff that happens in it is actually possible IRL. Sure, luck and ridiculous skill are involved like anything like this, but the mind games are just so mind-blowing.

I'm not a gambler, but this series makes me feel like one!

=D
