Bus Gamer

Bus Gamer

In the underbelly of the corporate world, a secret series of battles takes place called the Bus Game, whose participants are solicited randomly via letters in the mail. During the games, teams of three attempt to take into their possession a disk filled with corporate secrets; the winners are given increasingly high cash rewards, while the losers get nothing - or worse, they lose their lives. Toki, Kazuo and Nobu make up the "no name" team, and their goal is to win one billion yen each. Each has a reason to need the money and a secret, disturbing past; but with high stakes and mysterious employers, they can only hope to leave the game alive.

There's plenty of high stakes games titles out there, but Liar Game and Duds Hunt specifically remind me of each other due to the high amount of people who are viciously selfish to the core and are willing to inflict damage (financial or physical) on anyone that stands in their way of winning the game.

Along with seven other strangers, Hiroyuki must survive the Judge game by voting for someone to be sacrificed.

Liar Game and Judge are somewhat different high stakes games, but similar consequences and a lot of thrilling moments when you try to figure out who is being genuine or not. Try out one if you liked the other.

Tobaku Mokushiroku Kaiji

Tobaku Mokushiroku Kaiji

Itou Kaiji is as pathetic a person as they come; a man who gambles his days away, only winning enough to lose significantly more. He hates himself, is riddled with envy for others, but is ultimately too weak to think of a way out of his massive debts. Then one day he is approached by a strange man who offers him what seems the solution of a lifetime – to take a short journey on a ship called Espoir, during which time he will be given the chance to win more cash than he can dream of in a card game like no other. Ever the desperate, Kaiji takes the gamble of his life; however, the game turns out to be far darker than he expected and the hard lessons pile on thick and fast. Now stuck in a closed world of unsavory characters willing to do anything to destroy him, can Kaiji gather enough courage to outwit them all?

Both manga involve a shady organization that "charitably" gives people in debt an opportunity to erase their debt at the risk of taking on even more debt that they would never be able to possibly pay off in their lifetime. The main characters are both very intelligent individuals that tested game after game by various devastating high stake games. If you enjoy one you will most definitely enjoy the other. The only main difference between the two is the characters and their motives
