Lol a show about a mahjong club. Quite funny.

To be honest I was pretty disappointed. Had high expectations seeing as I was a fan of the manga (and still am) but the pacing totally blew me off. Random stretches of silence between their conversations making it kind of awkward, animation quality wasn't top-notch but it was ok. They managed to cover the first 2 chapters of the manga fairly nicely.

I'll probably give it a few more episodes to see how things go, but I'm expecting more from them. They have a lot to live up to in terms of Mahjong anime, if you know what I mean.

Also, gravity-defying boobies. That is all.

You should watch Akagi, hasteroth. It'll make your balls drop sooner.

Served more as a deterrent. I like Saki cause it's fun, and light. That's just my taste in anime.

I had a theory once. The theory was that how good an anime is is inversely proportional to how many women there are in said anime (as long as it's now shonen-ai or something gay like that). By this theory, Akagi is the greatest anime of all time because there is not a single female entity in the entire 26-episode show. Not even in the background.

I thank you hasteroth, for you unknowingly brought a show of supreme manliness to the attention of the Org.

This is now an Akagi thread.

Synopsis:
One stormy night, Nangou is playing a game of Mahjong with the local yakuza. Soon, he finds himself on a losing streak. If Nangou loses, he will have to pay with his life. Suddenly, a young teenaged boy, Akagi Shigeru, barges in, drenched from the rain. After watching a couple of games, he offers to replace the struggling Nangou. At that moment, a new legend was born.

I request that a mod change the name of this thread to "Akagi" and move it to Series Discussion.
Who knows what'll happen next? Maybe I'll make a Kaiji thread.

You are starting to come off as a misogynist.

And I assume that this is a typo: "as long as it's now shonen-ai or something gay like that"? Or does Akagi have shonen-ai (or even yaoi) elements?

And why does every Saki thread have mention of Akagi? Or for that matter, why does every anime series thread bring up comparisons with other anime? Especially those that only have one common factor? Aside from Mahjong, what commonality does Akagi have with Saki?

I meant "not." Horrible typo. There is nothing gay about Akagi.

I guess I have become a little misogynistic ever since we started discussing feminism in English. I'm fucking tired of it.

But I do rather enjoy it.

I wonder. Do ANY of the girls wear panties? I feel like there's something missing every time one of the girls stand up, and the camera gets fixated on their bottom asses.
