Bus Gamer 1999-2001: The Pilot Edition by Kazuya Minekura collects all the Bus Gamer that's already been published and has a note at the end that she'd like to get back to these guys someday but it probably won't be soon. But what's here is cool and worth it, with the ending making you interested in seeing more while not being cliffhangery enough to make you "Argh!" In Bus Gamer teams compete in a game with $3 million each as the final prize for the last, winner three-person team. Shadowy busine ...more
man it's been awhile since i got to read new minekura!

new to me anyways, this is a bit old but i hadn't known of it til a friend loaned me the volume

anyways the plot is you've got these three guys pulled together to play a game of corporate keepaway for a prize of three million dollars. this volume mostly focuses on them starting to pull a little closer as a team and realizing that the game is for literal life and death stakes

the game itself is not all that exciting but ehhh. it's like liar game

Toki, Nobuto, and Kazuo make up team AAA in the "Biz" game--in which companies gamble corporate secrets on the performance of their hired teams.

This series is currently on hiatus in Japan, and this edition features what's available thus far. I like the central characters very much, especially Kazuo (who is adorable); the mix of humor, violence, and angsty backstory strikes me a ...more
Génial, j'aime les dessins, les personnages sont attachants, Kazuo me fait bien marrer, l'histoire tient en haleine, c'est bien rythmé... j'aime !!! (bon ce serait bien qu'il y ait une suite par contre parce que là on reste un peu sur sa fin... à la fin...)

Didn't like it, the drawing and flow of the story was not smooth. The Plot while interesting was not developed well. Also with it being dropped after just one volume means inconclusive ending.

I really wish the mangaka would continue this series, but I think that it's a lost cause at this point...
An older Minekura title. A game turned voilent as three men fight for their lives.
Interactions between characters were very enjoyable. Good sense of humor.
