Hello. I want some anime that have people attempting to outsmart each other as a major part of the show. I already watched Death Note, Code Geass, Hyouka, Classroom of the Elite, Kaiji, Akagi, No Game No Life (some of it was nonsense, but some of it was really impressive), The Promised Neverland, Legend of the Galactic Heroes (I am mentioning this one even though it wasn't mainly focused on mind games so nobody suggests it anyway), One Outs, Talentless Nana, Kakegurui and Zankyou no Terror (it focused on mind games at the start). Please tell me of more mind game anime.

You're going to fucking love Usogui, it's a ridiculous gambling story up there with FKMT's stuff.

Unless you only want anime.


They're shit but most of the time there's mind games.


OP mentioned Kakegurui, I don't think he's gonna care lol


I do. I didn't like most of Kakegurui, but the Contributing to Society and roulette games were amazing. Others were not so good but had some good spots (like in ballot rock-paper-scissors where Yumeko spotted that her opponent won all high-stakes games, leading her to the conclusion they were rigged which leads her to figure out the signals using information we never had (that nobody was looking at her and that the boy was making the signals). I watched it because it was reccommended on the anime subreddit's reccommendations wiki for mind games (https://teddit.net/r/anime/wiki/recommendations#wiki_mind_games ) and it appeared on several Reddit asks for mind game anime. Browse through them at these two links: https://teddit.net/r/anime/search?q=Mind+games&restrict_sr=on&nsfw=on https://teddit.net/r/animesuggest/search?q=Mind+games&restrict_sr=on&nsfw=on&sort=relevance&t=all
I would prefer anime. For manga, I have Liar Game. It's available for free online (https://archive.org/details/manga_Liar_Game ), I have read it fully at least twice, it's my favourite manga and I am currently reading it again. I'm at the point where they explain the rules of the musical chairs game.

Also, I already watched Kaguya-sama. Most of it wasn't very impressive but the part with the umbrella was amazing. The characters playing mind games switched goals too quickly. For example, I remember they were playing mental chess but then the narrator said their energy was drained and they both wanted the food on the table (there was only one food item).


All manga is available for free online.


>>7748 is it for a lot of fights and the whole plot is set around a puzzle


How often are the fights with mind games? Are they a major part of the show?


Can someone answer >>8263 please? Can someone please recommend me more mind game anime?


Anything new out there? I watched Tomodachi Game and quite liked it; the Badmouthing Game was its highlight. I am aware of Classroom of the Elite Season 2 airing but am waiting for it to be finished before I watch it.


Spy x Family is probably the most based new shit around I can think of


I never heard of Spy x Family as a battle of wits show; I only heard of it as an action-comedy.


I mean everyone in the family has their secrets and they have to live their second lives with out the others finding out. It's quite entertaining


But that doesn't mean they must be in a battle of wits and from nobody mentioning it I presume it definitively isn't a major part of the show.


I guess that's true. Sorry for being dumb lol


It is okay.


I was recommended Sagrada Reset on Nanochan ( http://nanochanqzaytwlydykbg5nxkgyjxk3zsrctxuoxdmbx5jbh2ydyprid.onion/a/ ) and am quite enjoying it. Is there anything else available nowadays?
I downloaded some of Usogui from https://archive.org/details/manga_Usogui and will probably read it at some point. I can only reread Liar Game so many times.


I finished Sagrada Reset and found it very good.
Any other suggestions?


What ever happened to nanochan anyways? I haven't been able to find a link to the board for months




Fuckkk dude. RIP


Is there anything else in non-anime otaku media, like light novels, manga and visual novels? I read the Death Note, Liar Game and Gambling Legend Zero mangas and am keeping up with Talentless Nana and am planning on reading Usogui and Kusuriya No Hitorigoto/The Apothecary Diaries/The Pharmacist's Monologues mangas. For light novels, Classroom of the Elite, The Empty Box And The Zeroth Maria and Rokka: Braves Of The Six Flowers are the ones most frequently mentioned on the light novel subreddit and I am currently going through The Empty Box And The Zeroth Maria, enjoying it quite a bit. For visual novels, I quite liked Your Turn To Die and The Devil on G-String/G-Senjou no Maou and am playing Umineko's demo (I also played Danganronpa but that isn't a battle of wits but a mystery).


I also heard of Spiral The Bonds of Reasoning, Btoom, Shoukoku no Altair, World Trigger, Blast of Tempest, ID Invaded and Arpeggio of Blue Steel. I watched Spiral The Bonds of Reasoning to a bit into episode four and no battle of wits happened yet. Are these any good? Anything else?


After rewatching Sagrada Reset, I watched Spiral The Bonds Of Reasoning up to and excluding episode seven and a battle of wits did happen; I quite enjoyed the tricks each side used so far.




I finished Spiral The Bonds of Reasoning three weeks ago and quite liked it, despite the extremely inconclusive ending.


I just finished watching Joker Game. Some of it was cool but often I thought some of the tricks came from nothing (microfilms and such being embedded in objects, which of course means the viewer cannot see them) and sometimes following along an episode was quite hard. That being said, I thought episode six was very good and I thought it was quite clever.

Not anime*, but Arkinghts is a visual novel you might like, especially the side stories.
*well, there is an anime adaptiation of the early main story, haven't got around to it tho. It's a very dialouge heavy story so unless it's skipping stuff it may have weird pacing for an anime.


What visual novel? When I searched the Visual Novel Database I got nothing that was a battle of wits nor did anything have the same name, and I searched both exactly as you spelled it, 'Arkinghts' and as it was probably intended, 'Arknights' (https://vndb.org/v?sq=Arknights https://vndb.org/v?sq=Arkinghts). Wikipedia lists it as a tower defence game and I only got that somebody on Twitter is making a visual novel of it http://kddit.kallist4mcluuxbjnr5p2asdlmdhaos3pcrvhk3fbzmiiiftwg6zncid.onion/r/arknights/comments/s708xb/some_guy_on_twitter_is_making_an_arknights_visual/. Could you share a link to the visual novel you wrote about please?


It is a visual novel tower defence game. You unlock chapters by solving the tower defense puzzles.


As far as I know it is only available for mobile so I will not get it as I do not want to download things onto my phone. Is there anything else you would recommend?


That's fair. Honestly school has had me pretty occupied so that's been pretty much my main entertainment. If I find anything during the break I'll be sure to mention it here tho.


I heard that Summertime Rendering is rather similar to Sagrada Reset, which became one of my favourite anime. Are there clever schemes all throughout the show like in Sagrada Reset?


I started reading Spiral: The Bonds Of Reasoning manga and am quite enjoying it. I read up to and excluding chapter 22; which was adapted to the anime with some minor changes.




I finished Spiral: The Bonds Of Reasoning manga around a week ago and found it quite good. I am watching Summertime Rendering, I watched up to and including episode 11; there are not as many clever schemes as Sagrada Reset during that time but information crucial to the plot and starting a cat and mouse game was dropped so I will continue watching.


Gods' Games We Play's synopsis mentions it focuses on brain games so I will watch it. https://anidb.net/anime/17146


I heard that World Trigger has very strategic fights, so I intend to watch it; can anybody confirm or deny the strategic fighting? I will watch Gods' Games We Play (as I wrote in >>9030 ) when it is finished airing, so I haven't seen any of it and so can't comment on it.
