Uhhh the other review is pretty harsh, Kurosagi isn't that bad.

It's a shounen manga about, well, a swindler swindling swindlers. The manga follows a "swindler-of-the-week" format so there's no real overlying plot, just a new bad guy popping up every few chapters. I'll admit it's a little drawn out for 219 chapters but the protagonist is charming in his own boyish way and it's fun to see how he ends up saving the day in each arc.

Having said that, Kurosagi is NOT a psychological manga. The methods the protagonist uses generally revolve around finding loopholes in the law, not using psychological tricks. It's a fun read more

Are you a working professional? High school student interested in fraud? Like business ethics or accounting? This is for you.

This manga series is called Kurosagi or "black swindler". It's essentially Mr.Robot, the white Hat Hacker, but it this case it's a police detective frauding fraudsters.

It follows some 23 year old guy who's family is swindled and makes it his life mission to swindle swindlers or fight fraudsters. He fights multi-level marketing schemes, document fraud, accounting fraud, bankers, managers, and accountants. By all means, it's not very interesting. No fights. No goofy scenes like in ace attorney. It's people talking on the read more

Story:Ok, so you get this kid who had a bad past-common character background. He seeks retribution against all swindlers because his father was driven into debt by the swindlers and attempted to kill his family then himself. Of course the protagonist survives but the rest of his family was no so fortunate. He gets taken in or begs to be taken in by a notorious swindler who is currently an underground bartender that deals with selling information. So he goes around stealing from the rich and giving it to the poor metaphorically and becomes the ant-hero story to story. There read more

"It's not wrong to deceive, it's wrong to deceive the wrong target."

Kurosagi is a manga about con artists and its purpose is to educate readers on some of the possible ways a person can get scammed. The main character Kurosagi was a victim, losing his parents and complicating his past as a result. Filled with retribution (and a weird apathy at times), he works to undo other con artist's work.

Now, the story is particularly lacking. It's not meant to be an epic narrative about the moral and ethical implications of swindling others (however sometimes it waxes so) but rather to educate the reader on the read more
