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.

In a school composed of elitist students, which is dominated by gambling matches with very high stakes, Shirasagi, the mysterious transfer student, declares war upon the school by stating that he will bring ruin to it through a series of gambling matches. Who is he? What are his motives? Gamble Fish appears to use an interesting concept, but fails to transmit a coherent and realistic storyline with uninteresting characters.

The story of Gamble Fish is simple: Shirasagi, an extreme gambler, who transfers to the famous Shishidou elite school where he challenges students in his conquest to bring ruin to it. As stated earlier, there is a read more

Take an artist who decided not to care about realism for a change (AT ALL) and have him draw the most outlandish hero set against the backdrop of a school whose students learn absolutely nothing in an environment of gambling with constant life-and-death stakes. Throw in the most laughably demented villain who would have to be gay is he wasn't so evil, lots of fanservice that doesn't apologize to anyone, and snappy writing that makes you think twice at every turn and what do you get?

Gamble Fish. This manga is so incredibly bad, it's awesome. And when I say awesome, I mean I can't WAIT read more

Gamble Fish is about a boy and his quest for money. Lots of money. But unlike us humans who have to get an actual job and put in actual effort for our money, this 14 year old boy can gamble his way to fortune. This super human talent of his is what keeps you coming back for more.

Story - Pretty basic. The main character, Shirasagi, goes through a series of matches, picking up a new girl when he wins. There's a little bit of his past revealed after each victory, which only seems to spark more questions about where he came from. All of this read more

Unstable, acceptable mostly but the first chapter cover made me wonder if the cover girl did not have goldfish somewhere up her family tree.
I would say the drawing is very subjective, some people love it and others hate it.
Also, the comic has a lot of unnecessary fanservice, and i mean a lot. Definitely a guy (or lesbian) comic.

Conclusion placed here for readers to avoid spoilers.
Conclusion, unsuitable for reading this comic seriously as it is weak and shallow, unsuitable for reading it lightly as it has a serious tone. Half-ass comic from a half-ass writer who doesn't give a hoot. If you are looking read more
