3 Must Watch Anime and Manga About Gambling With a Twist

There are anime about almost any imaginable topic so it’s not really surprising there also exists anime about gambling as well. Of course, being anime and all, it’s natural that there is a twist to each of these series. While there are the more traditional settings of high stakes casinos, there are also some very unconventional settings as well such as the first anime on the list which takes place in a highschool, or the second anime on the list which uses magic abilities and special cards. These twists are why these three anime are must watch faves.

1.) Kakagurui – Compulsive Gambler

This anime is unique because it takes place in a very corrupt highschool where students enjoy betting and wagering with other students. However, there’s more than money at stake, as those who cannot repay their debts before graduation receive “Life Schedules” which determine everything from their career, to who they will marry and have children with.

However, there exists a student who doesn’t seek to gain anything, and merely enjoys gambling for the thrill. She also has a unique ability to see past scams and quickly begins to disrupt the schemes of the student council.

My favorite things about this anime are the strong female lead, and all of the drama and slice of life antics between the characters. It might be normal to expect this kind of high stakes excitement from the top10-casinosites.net but not from a highschool setting. This makes for a very interesting dynamic.

By the way, the manga is half off on Amazon and as of this blog post, it will still arrive before Christmas. Check it out here. https://www.amazon.com Manga makes great stocking stuffers for any geeks on your list and at just $6 a volume, it’s easy on your wallet too, which leaves you more money for some gambling of your own, if you’re into high stake wagers yourself.

2.) Rio: Rainbow Gate

Rio: Rainbow Gate, unlike our previous anime, takes place in an island casino resort. The main character is a popular casino dealer believed to bring good luck to gamblers earning her the nickname the Goddess of Victory. Rio is discovered to be a Gate Holder, a dealer who holds ones of 13 legendary Gate cards. Whoever can collect all 13 cards will be the most valuable casino dealer. In order to obtain all 13 cards. Rio takes part in special card games called Gate Battles against the other dealers in hopes of defeating them to obtain their Gate cards in order to become the most valuable casino dealer in the world.

The Gate Battles and Ladder scheme remind me a lot of Pokemon and Pokemon Battles like when they challenge the gym leaders for their badges. It gives off kinda the same concept. It is exciting to watch, even though it is predictable and we all know or expect the main characters to be the champion.

3.) Liar Game

There is no anime adaptation but there is a live action adaptation of this popular manga. You can watch the live action Liar Game on Viki.

What if you received a package with $1,000,000 and a note forcing you to become a contestant in a dangerous high stakes game. That is exactly what happens to poor, naive college girl, Nao Kanzaki in the Liar Game. The Liar game encourages you to lie and cheat to obtain your opponent’s money. Nao loses her money because she is too trusting.

Needing to find a way to win back her money, she seeks help from someone her exact opposite, a skilled con artist named Shinichi Akiyama. After winning back her money, the two agree to continue playing the Liar Game to advance through the tournament and free their opponents from their debts, with the ultimate goal being to take down the Liar Game organization once and for all.

Are These The 3 Best Gamblers in Anime?

Are These The 3 Best Gamblers in Anime?

In the world of anime, there are very few tropes, topics and hobbies that aren’t covered. There are shows centered around everything from golf to baking cupcakes, so it’s no surprise that there are several shows and characters that center around gambling. Games such as poker provide mangakas and producers with endless plot lines as they can go in any direction. Will the main character get that royal flush and win back their honor, or will they be stuck with nothing and lose everything to the audience’s chagrin?

Today, we thought we’d take a look at three of the best anime characters in the gambling business, since they are often the most charming and funny in their respective shows.

Tsunade Senju – Naruto

Let’s begin with the character we’re all most likely to remember and relate to: Tsunade Senju from Naruto. As fans of the iconic Shonen Jump manga and anime are sure to know, Tsunade has a number of titles to her name. She is known as a princess as she is the granddaughter of the First Hokage, she is one of the Legendary Sannin and is eventually labelled the Fifth Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village. Throughout her life, this character impacted the ninja world in a number of critical ways due to her prowess in medical ninjutsu.

That said, there is something else she is renowned for in the world of Naruto: being The Legendary Sucker. You see, Tsunade is a gambler who loses so often that whenever she actually wins it is almost regarded as divine intervention. The first time we ever meet Tsunade she has recently lost a game of something like poker, and later wins big on a slot machine – a sign of something bad approaching. Needless to say, you wouldn’t be seeing her at the Grand Poker Series anytime soon, even if they sent her personal invitation to the $1,000 Seniors Super High Roller. Still, this doesn’t stop Tsunade from having fun, we just hope that she pops up in Boruto soon to bring some life back to the party.

Kaiji Itou – Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor

When it comes to first rate poker players, Kaiji Itou may not be your first choice. Compared to other gambling pros that appear in anime, Kaiji is very much considered a loser from the beginning as he often finds himself in debt. He wants that flush more than anything in the world, and yet a two pair is usually as good as it gets. His lackluster performance has even been known to get him in trouble in the past, with many of the show’s main plot lines stemming from Kaiji’s innate lack of skill. This though, is what makes the show. The creators of Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor are able to push our protagonist to the very edge of his wits repeatedly, and we will always support the inept underdog.

If Kaiji were a real-life professional poker player, he would no doubt make his way into the 2017 World Series of Poker, perhaps even competing against big names like Chris Moorman and Parker “TonkaaaaP” Talbot. He might have even gone head-to- head with Mike Wattel in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship earlier in July, but we really doubt he would have won. After surviving so many hardships throughout his career, Kaiji has learned a lot about life, people and poker – gambling in general – and so, while he would maybe not be a favorite to win there’s the real possibility that he would out victorious at the poker tournament. The fun thing about Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor is we never really know if Kaiji will be successful or if more shenanigans are about to ensue.

Faye Valentine – Cowboy Bebop

Finally, how could we write a piece about gambling without featuring one of the best anime characters to ever enter a casino: Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop. Despite having originally aired in the late 1990s, this anime still manages to hold up even when pitted against more modern anime, which partly due to how entertaining the characters are.

In the show, Faye quickly becomes a member of a bounty hunting squad fronted by Spike Spiegel. We wouldn’t blame you for disliking Faye at first – after all, she is often seen drinking, smoking and gambling in dingy space bars. However, she is without a doubt the most charming gambler on this list, and someone that you will come to love throughout the series.

There you have it, our top picks for gambling characters. Do you agree with our choices or do you have a favorite that we’ve missed off? Let us know in the comments below.
