Review: Akagi


Plot Summary: 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 was honestly surprised when I stumbled upon this man, it revolves around Akagi Shigeru and his capacity for being a genius. He lives his life by challenging everything he knows and making sure his life is on the line every time he does something. The mental capability of this person is nothing short of insane, the game they play in Japan is called Mahjong, it is a complex asian tile game which he has mastered by playing right away. He is able to read deep into people and he has no boundary and aims for death, with his capabilities he takes out the best of the gamblers, the yakuza, and other people. He doesn’t do it for the money, he does it for the thrill of putting his life on the line and taking the life of the person in front of him, his nature in these situations is nothing short of a Demon. If you liked Death Note then you would love this anime, the animation is a bit crude but the story is fantastic.
