  • Unique anime, but falls short.
    The beginning of this series is great; the author's ability to create a story about mahjong into a suspenseful and captivating series is an achievement. The first 18 or so episodes until the last arc (i wanna call it, akagi vs old man) were great. However, that last arc was so painful to watch, and the ending was subpar, but I read that it is related to the manga so I can't blame the anime people ...

  • Great anime! similar to One Outs!
    I started watching this anime as a curiosity because it was a mahjong game anime but once the action started, i was so excited at the end of every episode!!! If you loved One Outs, you will like this anime even if you have no idea how to play this confusing game. The character goes through similar problems as the character from One outs does! It keeps you at the edge of your seat!! give this anime ...

  • Watched this twice, i would absolutely watch it a third time!
    A fantastic anime from a brilliant mind, it felt smart, realistic and very detailed. So detailed in fact that the really serious scenes were able to make me laugh with joy. I first watched this a few years ago when it first was released, back then i was gobsmacked by the game "Mahjong" and it didn't make much sense to me but the anime was absolutely amazing regardless. (Didn't stop me from ...

    Great Anime bad Ending
    I absolutely loved this anime, Akagi is now most definitely in my top 20 main character's of all time. However, the ending really disappointed me because while it certainly makes it clear that he wins I still wanted to see the final parts of the battle. With Washizu breaking even further as he continues playing into Akagi's hands!

    I picked this anime just out of curiosity, and I was totally hooked from the first episode. Hell I became a member just to stop all the announcements from playing so I could see it without interruptions. It did not disappoint! Truly a MUST WATCH!!!!!

    Not well known but something you should definitely check out
    You'd think you would have to understand the game they were playing in order to understand this anime, but this isn't the case. I to this day dont understand the rules to mahjong and i still found this fantastic. This was because it wasnt so much as a game of mahjong as it was phsycological warfare between the badass/mysterious Akagi Shigeru and his opponents. Overall, this was an amazing anime ...

    One of the Unknown Greats
    It's such a shame that more people haven't seen this show. It really is deserving of a place among the likes of Bebop, Eva, Fate/ Zero and the like. The intense mental conflicts all through the show are just great. Now on my top 10 list!

    Looking for a peaceful anime to fall asleep to? ; ) This is it.
    Akagi has extremely peaceful qualities and really keeps my stress level down by showing me that just through talking you can solve your problems. I like that there is not a lot of violence and that the morals are uplifting really a must see for all kids.

    AKAGI WILL MAKE YOU HIGH FOR MORE!!!!
    Even if you don't understand the rules or concept of the game, Akagi has that aura that makes you want to keep watching. The narrator adds that extra eccentric "spice" that makes this anime a MUST WATCH!!

    Totaly worth a marathon
    I didn't know anything about Mahjong, and still don't, but I enjoyed this show very much. Akagi's cool and calm personality is kind of thrilling. The other thing that I loved was his voice (voiced by Masato Hagiwara) his voice suits him so much.

    If you like mind games then I recommend this show.
