When will this bullshit ever ends?
Don't know but it's already been comfirmed there is more after Washizu
Last week and this week chapter made me mad.
I always found it odd how you had the spectators stand behind characters in Fukumoto's series and overreact to hidden hands. Gambling 101 teaches you that the more people who know what you have, the more faces there are to read, and the harder it is to conceal the the strength of your position. I always thought it was just a sort of artistic license to have them over-react, because otherwise you'd just have stone-faces and thought bubbles for volumes on end.
It's weird how this chapter reading the audience reaction became a focus. So, the goons were standing back there giving tells the entire time? This wasn't just something we were supposed to overlook?
If I was reading it monthly I'd probably be bored but it's not really an issue when I can marathon chunks of it. Anime is worse because it has set pacing, you can't read faster or slower
At least it's not more Washizu Mahjong. It'd be cool if the next arc was more like Ten and had several characters playing instead of just having a 1v1.
I also hope that there's a considerably big timeskip.
Yeah the see through tile gimmick is dragging on. There has been a decent timeskip both of the other major arcs so I assume it will happen again
It's already pretty up to date, I think it's being donr by volume and volume 6 isn't done yet even in Japan
HERO is pretty good.
I like it more than current Akagi
A group (Lion's Ridge) has picked up Koizumi recently, they're just going at it pretty slowly.
>How can you top a 20-year arc?
To be fair, Washizu mahjong lost its charm long time ago, and its only appeal is to see Washizu finally dead for this to finally end.
I would say his match against Ichikawa was more likeable.
>there is more after Washizu
Fuck this shit.
I bet FKMT is going to end Akagi at his first appearance in Ten.
Jesus, does Akagi really make this face? Or is it one of Washizu's delusions/predictions? I just finished the anime last night so I'm gonna binge the manga to catch up. The thing I don't like about Washizu Mahjong is there aren't scenes with Akagi cheating.
Really? Feels pretty unique to me. GtK probably has the best pacing out of most of FKMT's works. Still waiting for that final arc translation.
Got it, thank you. I'll check out Ten. Before this the only FKMT I've read before was Saikyou Densetsu Kurosawa. While I liked it for the ending, the secondhand suffering and embarrassment was getting too painful, so Akagi was a good reprieve from that.
Kaiji is his own branch of alpha when it comes to it.
