Akagi Chapter 200

Yes, it's true, we're finally at the 200-chapter mark! And for the 200th chapter of Akagi, we have in this chapter a very special color page montage from the Akagi Character Book! The black-and-white pages are also included, of course. But the color page is not all that's special about this chapter...!

Special thanks to TA for cleaning it and the rest of this chapter, and to Kazuhiko for typesetting! I will be streaming the Saki PSP game and giving my very biased opinions on it this Friday at 20:00 GMT (1:00 PM PDT). There will be a mahjong night this saturday at 22:00 GMT (3:00 PM PDT).

"I'm better! I'm better than any so-called god!!"

Ohhhhh my God, we're finally here. Yes, it's chapter 200, but that's not what I mean. I mean we're finally at the point where everything changes, as the manga aptly put, in a V formation. Washizu was at his wit's end until just last chapter, and now he sees what he has been doing wrong. He was begging the gods to save him! He shouldn't have been doing that! In fact, he doesn't need gods! He's better! Better!! Better!!! So much better in fact, that the gods return to his side, changing his first 6 garbage draws into an unbelievable Chii Toitsu 1st-Turn Tenpai... no, BEFORE his first turn! And that prompts Yoshioka into giving us probably my favorite metaphor in the whole series, that Washizu is the White Hole that can counteract Akagi, who until just a chapter ago was an unstoppable Black Hole! Now, all the Gods of every religion are at his beckon call, as shown by this ever-popular page:

The only question now, is... Will it be a Renhou (Ron before your first draw)? Or perhaps a Chiihou (Tsumo on your first draw)?! Certainly, there's no way for Akagi to defend against a first-turn tenpai! Is there?


  1. Damn that chapter's hilarious. Washizu doesn't give a fuck.

  2. It would be great if Akagi drew a Tenhou here

  3. This chapter pretty much explains why Washizu's entire Mahjong game up to this point has been piss poor. He actually never relied on any type of skill in his entire life. He doesn't actually know how to play Mahjong like a pro because he has just always . . .Just Won. Even the greatest mahjong players in the world will lose 33 percent of the time, and that is because thirty three percent of the time even the stupidest people in the world can luck there way into a victory, Washizu has somehow lived his entire life in that thirty three percent.

    1. How dare you say such things about Washizu-sama
