Kurosagi (クロサギ; English: The Black Swindler) is a Japanese seinen manga written by Natsuhara Takeshi and illustrated by Kuromaru. It was published on Young Sunday Magazine from 2003 to 2008, collecting 20 volumes. Later, a new series was created under the name 新クロサギ (Shin Kurosagi).

In 2006, a dorama was made by TBS based on the manga. A movie version was produced and released in 2008.

Story

Kurosagi is about a young man by the name of Kurosaki who swindles other swindlers to get back the money they have stolen from others. He concentrates on Shirosagi (White Swindlers - people who swindle others financially) and occasionally Akasagi (Red Swindlers - people who swindle others through manipulation of their feelings). Kurosaki's father had killed the rest of his family because of the work of a Shirosagi and now he wants revenge and so he sets out to destroy other Shirosagi.
