Akagi Chapter 181

Hey, it's way late in the evening, but I remembered I have a chapter to upload and upload it I shall! In this chapter, Washizu is appalled by Akagi's decision to give up his Yakuman... but does he have a reason for it...?

I think my first of hopefully many Friday streams went well, I might do Kaiji DS this friday if people are interested? Either way, tomorrow we'll be playing Mahjong at 22:00 GMT (3:00 PM PDT) on the IRC.

Thanks to Leoho for the cleans, and to Kazuhiko for the typesetting!

Akagi Chapter 180

Another chapter of Akagi, coming right at you! In this chapter, Washizu has all but won the round! Does Akagi have a backup plan...?! Thanks to TA for the cleans, and to Kazuhiko for the typesetting!

As some of you may know, Akagi's 14th Kinichi is this Thursday, so I'd like to have an all-night (actually, all-day) vigil on Friday the 27th starting at 19:00 GMT (12:00 PM PST). I'd be marathoning through 6 Hanchans of Washizu Mahjong on the Akagi DS game on http://www.twitch.tv/sonickrazy/, and I'd like to make it into a regular thing where I play through Mahjong and FKMT games on twitch on fridays. I have some more elusive games to try out later down the road, but if nobody cares that's fine.

And as usual, Mahjong Day will be this Saturday at 22:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST).

Akagi Chapter 179

After a minor break, we're back with the next installment of Akagi! In this chapter, disaster has befallen Washizu, but can he still return the blow? Thanks to Leoho for the cleans and to Kazuhiko for the typesetting, and also a special shout-out to Biggums for doing the redraws on 049-050!

ABSOLUTELY NO MAHJONG Day Part Deux will be this Saturday at 22:00 GMT (3:00 PST), replacing regular Mahjong Day! We'll be playing E-Card and possibly some other games, so be sure to come on by and check it out!

ABSOLUTELY NO MAHJONG Day #2

All right, so since I foresee a bit of a lapse in releases here, I figured I'd outline some of the goodies I have in store for us this Saturday at 22:00 GMT (3:00 PST) on the IRC. I'm planning on starting off with E-Card, and then trying one of the other two games that I'll describe here, both from FKMT manga. As a refresher, here's the rules for E-Card:


But wait, you say, you can't do E-Card! If you just have people say what they want to play, that would let them cheat by entering in their card after seeing what the other person played! Ah, but that's where you're wrong. It is easily fixed simply by adding a "Dealer" to whom the card choices are messaged, and by letting him reveal them and keep score and the like. I'm sure I don't have to detail how the game itself works with real cards, so let me go through the steps that the game will go through.

Atsuize Pen-Chan Chapter 1

Welp, it's finally time for the first chapter of our newest side project, Atsuize Pen-Chan! I'm aware that there are existing translations of 1-5, but I felt like we should start from the beginning both because the raws I have are better quality and because I felt some of the comedy is lost without the sound effects. Anyway, on to the chapter!

Thanks to our newest cleaner, Iapetus, for a job well done on this first chapter! Thanks also to Peng for picking up the typesetting for this one. There will be a Mahjong Night tomorrow at 22:00 GMT, and an ABSOLUTELY NO MAHJONG Night the week after at the same time.

Akagi Chapter 178

After some delay due to a lack of communication, we have for you the next chapter of Akagi! In this chapter, Washizu's hand rises higher and higher... but what of Akagi's hand...?! Thanks to Leoho for cleaning, TA for typesetting, and to Kazuhiko for QC'ing.

Mahjong Day will be at the usual time this week, on the usual day. That means Saturday at 22:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST). I'm also thinking we should have another ABSOLUTELY NO MAHJONG day on the Saturday afterwards, where we mostly do E-Card. Last time we did it turned out to be pretty epic, so I think it's high time for another session.

Akagi Chapter 177

Why, I believe this is two days of releases in a row! Yes, and you have TA to thank for this, as she both cleaned and typeset this chapter, and very quickly I might add! Kazuhiko also QC'd this chapter, so thanks go to him as well. Now, in this chapter, Washizu starts to put a hand together to chase after Akagi!

For an update on Kaiji, we're still going through volume 3 right now, we're nearly halfway done.

There will be a Mahjong Night this saturday at 22:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST), on the IRC.

Akagi Chapter 176

Yeah, going pretty slowly on the Akagi front right now, but not totally stopped. We've got a new cleaner, Iapetus, working on some chapters of Pen-Chan right now, since that won out in the poll. I'm planning on doing the first volume from the beginning with that one, rather than skipping to chapter 6. I know a lot of you are going to find that unnecessary, but I just think it's going to be the best in the long run to have the full volume on our mediafire.

Anyway, a new chapter of Akagi is upon us, and in this chapter, Akagi moves two large steps closer to the Dai San Gen hand he so desires! Thanks very much to Leoho for the cleans, and to TA for stepping in to typeset this chapter! In addition, thanks go to Kazuhiko for quality-checking the chapter afterwards.

There will be yet another Mahjong Night this Saturday at 22:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST)! Be there!
