    What manga would you recommend out of these three..

    I want something similar to the Liar Game if anybody has read that. I'd like a recommendation between these three:
    Akagi

    Gamble Fish

    Kaiji

    I'm kind of debating on Akagi since from what I read you need to have background knowledge on certain games. If it's really that great of a manga I can try learning to play it though.

    I still haven't gotten to any of those. =/

    Have you seen One Outs though? Same creator as LG so needless to say that's awesomeness already. The manga translation jumps a lot though and a bunch of chapters are missing but there's a 25-episode or so anime for it too.

    Actually I have heard of it but I still haven't checked it out.. I may look into that too. Are there characteristics that make it stand out?

    Well it's a baseball manga but it's definitely as psychological as Liar Game was. The main character is a genius pitcher who ends up joining a team with a contract where he gets 5,000,000 yen for every out he pitches but loses 50,000,000 yen for every point he gives up. Even though I'm not a baseball (or really any sports) junkie it's incredibly entertaining and seeing how things play out is almost as brilliant as Liar Game. Overall though I definitely prefer Liar Game but part of that is also the fact that LG has everything properly translated while One Outs has missing chunks here and there.

    ive read the 1st chapter of gamble fish i believe but never took it further, not because its bad or anything just was a bit lazy to continue lol the other two never heard of them

    why dont you read the 1st chapter of each one then decide or more if you still cant decide

    Re: What manga would you recommend out of these three..

    Gamble Fish actually isn't too bad from what I read. So far if I had to rank them it would be..

    1. Gamble Fish
    2. Kaiji
    3. Akagi

    To be fair though I read the least of the third one. I read around 15-20 chapters of the first two, and so far I'm only slightly more impressed with Gamble fish.

    Kaiji is badass man. Didn't read the manga but I watched the anime and I enjoyed it very much.
