There are gamblers out there who even bet their lives as ante. But to secure the integrity of these life-threatening gambles, a violent and powerful organization by the name of "Kagerou" referees these games as a neutral party. Follow Baku Madarame a.k.a. Usogui (The Lie Eater) as he gambles against maniacal opponents at games—such as Escape the Abandoned Building, Old Maid, and Hangman—to ultimately "out-gamble" and control the neutral organization of Kagerou itself.

Story: The story of Usogui takes on a realistic point of view of illegal gambling, that gamblers need violence in order to protect what they win.The story is complex and unique in a good way, but because of that, it took time until the plot made sense. It was then when I finished reading volume 29 that I first realized how deep the story is, and I was amazed how all the things I thought were not relevant came together. The storytelling in my opinion is also excellent on how the author manages to convey the tension of the games to the readers. The games read more

Hello everybody I am here to review a manga called Usogui or Lie Eater in English.It is written and illustrated by Toshio Sako and serialized by Weekly Young Jump.
The story is about a gambler name Bak MADARAME a.k.a Usogui as he tries to take control of Kakerou. He is a smart,cool,versatile character and he steals the show every time he makes an appearance .He is one of the main things that draws you into the manga.Other characters are Kaji Takaomi a.k.a (Lois Lane),Marco who posses incredible strength that could match The Hulk,Kiruma Souichi the leader of Kakerou and Yako Hikoichi the No.2 referee of Kakerou.

Usogui- A manga which I believe truly lacks recognition.

Story (7): The story which mostly focuses on the main character (Bak Madarame) dealing with different types of gambles which reflects just how much of the genius he is.It wasn't really the first in its category but it certainly had a lot of unique aspects such as a range of different types of gamble games which have been explained simply but you can understand enough for you to grab hold of it. Another thing I enjoyed about the story is that it introduces few new characters throughout to balance the tension and show the thoughts read more

"Men exist only at the price of betting on their own chances to exist. "

Usogui, written by Toshio Sako is one of the manga that had a great success in the Young Jump. Rightly so, because despite its flaws: it is a very good manga.
We find ourselves immersed in a rather dense universe, with different forces more powerful one than the other, which directs the great authorities of this universe as well as its darkest side. In Usogui, you will find a very large, perhaps even too large, panel of charismatic and interesting characters. Each narrative arc brings details about these characters: their read more
