Akagi Chapter 186

The first chapter of the blood-betting battle between the best baddie and badass begins!

...Sorry about that. But the next chapter of Akagi is up, and Washizu is about to face a world of trouble if he doesn't take Akagi's dealer turn away, stat. This chapter was cleaned by Iapetus (very well, I might add!) and typeset by Kazuhiko.

I will have Ten - Tenhou Doori no Kaidanji for the PS2 by friday, so it's a sure bet I'll be streaming it at 20:00 GMT (Daylight Savings has arrived in America) or 12:00 PM PST. Mahjong Day is at the usual time Saturday, 23:00 GMT (3:00 PST).

Also, it would be cool if someone might draw up a new credits page for us to use; we've had this same one for several volumes now and it might be nice to have a more... bloody page, shall we say, for the latter part of this battle.


"The end is near!"

Not a tremendously eventful chapter in terms of actual gameplay, but then Washizu just bet his life to beat Akagi, so obviously we're going to need a whole chapter of metaphors and introspection to deal with it. But I think the metaphors are pretty awesome here; Washizu being on a very small island with a high tide that will sweep him away at any moment is pretty accurate to what his predicament is like, and a helicopter flying overhead is just about as unlikely as starting in Tenpai. But it looks like it's going to happen! Will it...?!

Short blog post, but eh, just not much to say for this one I guess.

  1. I guess he will be in Tenpai but have a demon in his hand?
