I've only seen the first 4 episodes, but episode 1 got me hooked. Akagi is a very compelling character, and as you see a number of times, he's quite badass. I also love the mood that the OP sets up(I'm not liking the ED).

Any other Crunchyrollers watching this?

I haven't sen it yet but I did see Kaiji. It was good!
I've had this on my to-watch list for some time now and
I'm thinking of watching it when I have the time.

Thanks for reminding me, bb.

I've not seen this, but it's already looking like I'll be dropping a bunch of simulcasts this season, making a little more room for checking out older stuff. So, I've added this to my queue now, and might start watching soon (will check in back here if I do).
