So who else has partaken of this excellent Mahjong series?
Like Hikaru no Go, you don't need to know the rules of the game to feel the suspense of the story. But unlike HnG, it's all about the game itself and the main character generally being a 100% pure bad ass.
Love the intro and ending themes as well, opening is a melancholic little masterpiece.

I hope that whenever the original manga finishes (still on Washizu), that a sequel gets made. And following that, Ten.

I just finished the anime, it was great. I still don't understand how to play the game but it seems fun.
If i did play i wouldn't want to play with Akagi. I think i'd die.

*raises hand* First series I watched on crunchyroll. Really cool, especially the second half of the series, that was insane. I did not like the ending though....seemed a bit rushed.

Well yeah, like I said, the manga is still on Washizu for whatever reason. I'm guessing they wanted to end it like that with Akagi raising the stakes once again.

And him surviving the match was already apparent since the Ten manga (featuring old Akagi) actually predates the Akagi manga.

Well, I think I made some comments on it, but not sure exactly what they were now.

For one thing though, my limited knowledge of Mahjong means I can't comment on that part of the show critically. I suspect the game is not quite like they portray it though.

Bit long winded at times, I remember that.
We never really have a clue what Akagi's history is, but thats how they wanted to play it, seemingly mysterious and inexplicable.
The fact that the setup with completely unrealistic, and that Akagi was leaps and bounds ahead of everyone else (in that it seemed that he planned the whole game ahead of time). Completely unrealistic, and giving no explanation for it, that effected my enjoyment somewhat.
The ending was appropriate considering the rest of the anime.
4/5 stars.

Only seen a few of the episodes so far, but pretty darned cool. Maybe I'll watch another right now... If I can remember where I left off, lol.

And the manga? There doesn't seem any way to get it via internet... Or maybe I haven't looked hard enough.
