Money is power, and without it, life is meaningless. In a country whose economy is in shambles, second-year Economics university student Kimimaro Yoga understands this fact all too well, as he is surrounded by the relatively luxurious lives of his peers and struggling to make ends meet. However, his world is turned on its head when a stranger in a top hat arrives one late night at his door. Going by the name Masakaki, the visitor petitions Yoga to come to the Eastern Financial District, a place where money flows in abundance if one offers their "future" as collateral. Although reluctant, greed triumphs reason and Yoga accepts the offer; thus, taking on the mantle of an "Entre." But unbeknownst to him, the land of wealth he has entered is an alternate realm built in the likeness of his own, where Entres are forced to participate in weekly duels called "Deals," with their collateral at stake. Pitted against his countrymen and fate, Yoga must quickly adapt in this new world if he hopes to protect his fortune and future—and discover just how much money is truly worth.

One of the hidden gems.


Interesting world and a brilliant take on the “money is power” theme. To bad it lacked depth and world building. Still a nice watch.




I really liked the opening song for this show, and I had hope that it would deliver with and interesting story. It really wasn’t that great.

Shut in NEET

This anime actually made me think of all of the control that money has over our lives. I would advise anyone to watch it.


Typical Nakamura: really interesting ideas with a shot-to-hell pacing. Still enjoyable, even though the ending felt like a cop-out.


A nicely contained story in a pleasantly unique setting. For once, it is the protagonist who fights for the bigger picture.



    Anime was a mistake
