It's as overlong as his nose. At this point the manga just has to end, so that we can get Akagi S2 and then a Ten anime.

Oh, who am I kidding? First of all, Akagi is Kindai Mahjong's main cash cow and will never end. Secondly, the post-anime Akagi drags on so much that the 4 cours it would last for would be horrifically boring. There's no hope for more anime in the Akagi continuum.
>>
It's great, I marathoned all 170 chapters in a few days. At the same time I admit it's really dragged out. We'll never see the conclusion at this rate.

Is there any manga arc at all that's gone on as long as Akagi vs Washizu?

Akagi is good but Kaiji, Kursawa, and Ten are much better.

No.

Which will happen first, Akagi beating Washizu or Guts and his party getting off the boat?

Look at the title of the thread.

And I gave my thoughts. It didn't ask for an explanation did it?

>Very boring Story.
For me it is, because as the topic asks for my thoughts, I gave them. Most people don't care about Mahjong and those who do wouldn't like it to be dragged on for this long.

>Incredibly horrible character design.
Which is true. The art is horrid. Doesn't mean I want it to be "modern", "moe" or whatever. It simply is unbearable.
>>
>>133737541
And I gave you my thoughts on your post. Congrats on not liking thing.
>>
>>133737541
The art is extremely charming and Fukumoto is great at expressing emotions. It's not filled with extreme detail like Berserk of Vinland Saga but he has his own style and is very loved for it. A pioneer. Akagi is a great manga filled with suspense but sure, it does help knowing some things about mahjong.
>>
>>133737630
I don't care. Seems like you simply can't take any thoughts that don't revolve around praising Akagi. Perhaps OP should just rename the thread next time

>Positive thoughts on Akagi only
Which I'm fine with. The art is so bad it makes me laugh, and that's a good thing.
>>
>>133737697
To each their own then.

The art just interferes with the dialogue, gets in the way of the text and has very exaggerated expressions on characters.
>>
>>133737541

You're probably a bad troll, but you're also right. This isn't a circlejerk thread so bashing the show is just as welcome as praising it.

I agree with most of the general positive comments. The anime is a masterpiece, and it effectively intensifies the manga's story and gives a much more satisfying end than the manga (which has no end, currently). It's a timeless classic, and hasn't aged much in the 10 years since it came out.

The mahjong was pretty boring for me, I couldn't even watch Saki when Saki makes it really easy to follow the drama without knowing anything about the game and gives them magic and shit.
So I read Kurosawa, I loved that, I didn't understand that it was pretty much just an extension of the final 30 chapters of Ten which I only read because anon raved about it.
Pretty much the final 30 chapters of Ten is every fukumoto work ever without the mahjong and I suggest anyone that doesn't like the mahjong read it.
>>
I still don't understand mahjong.
>>
>>133739559
>reading just the ending to Ten
Nigger, it's retarded to read the ending without having read through the manga. The ending was much more powerful after the main story.

Yeah, I know. But I couldn't give enough of a fuck at the time and have no desire to read more fukumoto works after that.

You should read up on the rules, play on tenhou for about a year till you have a general feel for it, then reread/rewatch Akagi. It's a rare instance where you can watch a great show twice and get a newfound appreciation of it the second time.

If you go for them they aren't particularly hard. The problem is 3/4 (actually 25/34) of all your draws are completely useless and you will be dealing a lot of dangerous tiles (especially when you are in a different suit than the dora) until you finally make your hand.

In this case it's south 4 and he can't end up last unless he deals haneman or higher, so he can be a little more reckless.
>>
>>133747922
To add to this, unless you pick up an extra han somewhere (toitoi, red 5, dora, or ittsuu) or keep the whole hand closed, all this danger only gets you to mangan.
>>
>>133747546
By the time it's helpful for you to try doing so, you'll probably be able to do it to an extent. Until then, just stick to the basics.
