Sanshirou's chances of having an adventure are slim to none in his tiny island hometown, until the day a mysterious stranger invites him to play a game... Without warning, Sanshirou is taken to a backwards universe to play BakéGyamon—a game pitting monsters against monsters. Along the way he meets other players who have a particular reason for being there—to obtain the wish that is granted to the winner. But how far can Sanshirou get when the monsters he's been paired with are a bunch of little mud balls?!

Story: 9/10
The story wasn't that promising at the first, people may accuse it like a generic game match, which the MC goes along and eventually win the tournament and his wishes will be granted. It involves the existence of Ayakashi, one of Japanese's mythical creatures being sealed as Gekifu in order to be used in a game called "Bakegyamon". Maybe ...
