Mr. Tonegawa: Middle Management Blues (Japanese: 中間管理録トネガワ, Hepburn: Chūkan Kanriroku Tonegawa, lit."Middle Management Chronicle Tonegawa") is a Japanese manga series written by Tensei Hagiwara and illustrated by Tomohiro Hashimoto and Tomoki Miyoshi. It is a spin-off of the main series Kaiji by Nobuyuki Fukumoto. It began serialization in Kodansha's Monthly Young Magazine in July 2015, and later moved to Comic Days manga app in March 2018.

An anime adaptation by Madhouse aired from July to December 2018 on Nippon TV's AnichU programming block. Sentai Filmworks have licensed the anime and an English dub began streaming on Hidive in August 2018. The show is also available for viewing on Crunchyroll.

Story[edit]

The story follows Tonegawa Yukio, the right-hand man of the domineering president of the Teiai group and owner of numerous gambling tournaments, Hyōdō Kazutaka. After Hyōdō becomes bored and seeks some excitement, he orders Tonegawa to organize a so-called "game of death". Because it is Tonegawa's job to keep the president in a good mood, he must cooperate with his subordinates in order to make the president happy. It is about the battles that Tonegawa wages as a middle manager, caught between Hyōdō's demands and the responsibility he has for the performance of his subordinates, the men in black. What follows is a humorous story of his interactions with his subordinates and other characters of the Kaiji series.
