Hi guys!

We just added Akagi to our anime library! Premium members have access to all episodes as of 5pm PDT today while free members will enjoy 6 episodes today while adding 5 episodes/week. Akagi will be available in the USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, the Carribeans, and South/Central America.



Tokyo, 1958.
Nangou is playing a life and death match of mahjong against the Ryuzaki yakuza clan. If he loses, he must pay his debt through his own life insurance. He is despairing when suddenly a mysterious, 13-year old boy appears. His name is Akagi. Nangou senses a strong aura around the boy and out of desperation, he lets Akagi play for him.
Although Akagi has just learned the rules of mahjong, his natural talents are awakened and he defeats the veteran yakuza players. But this legendary night is only the beginning for Akagi, the genius who descended into the darkness...

Great news. I've already seen Akagi, but this is an awesome addition to the catalog. If you've enjoyed shows like Kaiji, Saki, or Chihayafuru, you might enjoy this. A word of warning though: this show is a LOT more intense than those last two. It's more similar to Kaiji of course, being from the same author, but does share some things in common with Saki and Chihayafuru. It's about a game, Mahjong...that's why I say it's similar to those two. Anyways, be prepared for a wild ride filled with death defying bets and some of the most intense mental feats performed by Akagi. He's a true madman and risks his own life multiple times playing Mahjong.

I have been a Premium Member for about 2 years now and each month because I am a Premium Member, 1000 CR points are added. So 24 months times 1000 is 24,000. (I hope that helps).
