Why the comparison to Hiruma? Their personalities aren't the same at all...
Toua is much more like Akagi, though not quite. He's not like Kaiji at all though. Kaiji's a royal wuss. XD

Really like this series so far, can't wait.

i really like this show, just like i liked akagi.. i know a lot of people complain that the main characters seem too god-like, but i think that's the charm of it... the fact that the show focuses more on the psychological aspects of the human mind--or that it focuses on human frailty at all, which is always a topic of interest--is what makes it unique... also, the viewers never know what the main character is thinking unless he chooses to voice his thoughts, which makes him mysterious and attracting...

"Head / Face"?? Akagi and Kaiji were very close to the manga style, which was heavy angular line art and HUGE pointed Pinocchio noses. And Kaiji cried at every stumble. Tears would run down his face like open faucets. And he lost battles. Kaiji was the biggest loser, but that was his charm. Still, none of that's happening in One Outs. Tokuchi is so confident it is surreal, like he's not even human (like Akagi). I will fall off my chair the moment Tokuchi's eyes go wide in disbelief if someone beats him with a sucker punch. And if Tokuchi sheds one tear I would be amazed. So far (up to episode 8) and I have yet to see any "crying men".

To that I agree. Just the difference in execution and platform (as Realism said). So yes, at the heart of it they are similar (though I was surprised at Kaiji's ending, which I won't spoil. but I think the studio was hoping for a second season). Likewise, this can be said of a lot of anime, that high school / mecha / occult / ninja / fantasy / sport, et. animes are similar. Some stand clear of the pack (which is what we love the best), but mostly they cover a lot of the same ground. Doesn't mean I hold it against them, in fact I don't mind at all. There's just too much to watch nowadays.

That said... I give One Outs the benefit of the doubt because baseball is a team sport, not a one-on-one board game.
Tokuchi is against several batters, the entire team (his included) and the managers / owners.
Tokuchi manipulates both his own team and the opponents like chess pieces.
He is literally playing god on the field with about 18 men.
