Akagi Chapter 274

Happy new year, everyone! Since we'll be doing something special for new year's day again, Kurosawa's going to have to wait one more week. In the meantime, enjoy this new chapter of Akagi, in which we find out if Akagi will get a Rinshan Kaihou!!

Thanks to Tambur for the typesetting and to Crump for the cleans. I'm getting a new computer for christmas so I'll be able to stream again soon, but not this sunday. The usual mahjong night will be this saturday.

One Poker-Hen 105

As we get closer to the end of the year, I am thinking more about my new year's resolutions. I'm hoping to add catching up with Kaiji by the end of year to that list. A fanciful dream or reality, there's no way of knowing for sure... On with One Poker!

Pen-chan Chapter 8

Merry Christmas, everyone! Santa left a brand-new chapter of Pen-chan for you under the tree this year... and it's even Christmas-related! Pen-chan is helping his old boss, Mr. Kijima, get together with his family for the first time in five years for Christmas! The only problem is, Kijima doesn't want to do it!! Also, there's mahjong.

Thanks to Iapetus for cleaning this literally years ago, and special thanks to Tambur for sticking with all the sound effects and the massive amount of text this chapter had to offer. We'll be having our own Christmas Mahjong Get-together tomorrow at 3:00 PM PST, and there'll be a bonus of 20 points added to your score no matter where you place!

Akagi Chapter 273

Merry Christmas (eve)! We're bringing you Akagi a day early to make way for a special release tomorrow! Yes, there is something that we simply had to release on Christmas Day, so unfortunately one of our three weekly series had to be shelved to make room for it. Since Kaiji is by far our most popular series and people are paying for Akagi still, the only logical move was to drop Kurosawa for a week. Hopefully what we have in store for you tomorrow will make up for it!

As for today's release, it was brought to you by the jolly cleaner Crump and the jingle jonging typesetter known as Tambur. The day after Christmas, Saturday December 26th, we will be having a special yuletide event for Mahjong Day where 20 points will be automatically added to your score no matter where you place! So even coming in last will only make for a tiny loss, while a first-place victory will earn you tons! Stop by the IRC to take part!

Kaiji Gaiden

Hello Kaiji fans! It's time for something a little different. We wanted to break up the beginning of the old arc and the new one somehow without leaving a hole, so we decided to translate an old one shot of Kaiji that Fukumoto did during the Espoir arc. This is the story of what would have happened to Kaiji had he not taken Endou up on his deal to go to the Espoir. Let's see how Kaiji handles Furuhata's debt.

Mahjongkrazy Happenings

Hey mahjong fans! Did you know that mahjongkrazy has been releasing new mahjong manga?! Well now you do! I'm here to announce THREE series that are getting releases! Go check them out at "Mahjongkrazy Branch" up there in the top bar! Thanks to Denji and Chuck for keeping releases coming!

First, there's the ever-popular Legendary Gambler Tetsuya, which had a long gap in releases, but that gap has been broken by our resident damn punk, Chuck190! Tetsuya is a manga about post-war japan and the mahjong games that happened around the 1940's, which involved some heavy cheating. Releases done sporadically.



Then, there's Naki no Ryuu, one of the pioneers of the mahjong manga scene, which popularized doing crazy stuff while playing and looking cool doing it. It stars a guy named Ryuu who plays for Yakuza in high-stakes mahjong games, and plays in a way that defies explanation. Released every friday.


Finally, I'm doing a manga called Mukoubuchi, a tale of high-stakes underground mahjong. The 1980's saw a big economic bubble that led to high stakes games unlike anything the world had ever seen. And in it, a man some call Kai lives as a Mukoubuchi, a lone-wolf gambler that lives off high-stakes games. Terribly sorry, but releases will only be every other monday.

Akagi Chapter 263

The final chapter of Akagi Volume 30 is now up! And now that we're all caught up to the volume releases, we're going to be moving back to Hero next week! Everyone who's been asking for it, you're finally going to get your wish! That said, this is a rather awkward place to leave off in Akagi, and Volume 31 probably isn't coming out for half a year at least. So if you'd like to help us buy the magazine raws and support us since we'd be working on 3 weekly projects, feel free to donate with the button in the sidebar!
