Akagi Chapter 225

A new chapter of Akagi is now up, and just in time for the Super Bowl! Don't let this chapter distract you, go, watch! Go ahead and try!!!

Thanks to Biggums for the cleans and to Tambur for the typesetting. I'll try and stream this Friday, but we'll see. Mahjong Night will be this Saturday.

Also, I have added a donation button to the sidebar again. If you would like to help support me and Biggums financially, feel free to donate. I made it as inconspicuous as possible, and I should stress that you have no obligation to donate whatsoever. All I can say is that, for me, having some extra money would allow me to have some more time to translate since I wouldn't have to work as much. 15% of proceeds will go to buying manga raws.

Also if anyone is interested in joining us as a cleaner for Kaiji we would really appreciate it, and I'd be more than happy to give you a cut of any donations we receive. You'd be getting a pretty big slice as well; only 2 of us in the group actually need money from donations. Please fill out this cleaning guide and send it to shinichiakiyama@hotmail.com if interested.

"Washizu himself is the lynchpin in his own demise!"


Yeah, so Tambur really wanted to get this chapter to you thursday like we've been doing, but I insisted that we release Kaiji in its place since we hadn't done Kaiji in ages. He still tossed a new Akagi chapter at me anyway though right after, so I guess we're still pumping them out at approximately 1 chapter per week.

In this chapter, Washizu's draws all backfire on him in the worst way; first he draws the Dora, 9-Pin, which is clearly too dangerous to play. After that, he draws in a few Manzu tiles that he definitely cannot play against Akagi's Hon Itsu hand. Well, the chapter says that Pinzu and Souzu tiles are safe against Akagi's hon itsu, but that's not really true. Let's say he draws in a 4-pin and just plays it without thinking. If Akagi had a hand like this:

(3p) (5p) (7p) (8p) (9p) (7m) 7m

It would be Hatsu Xia with 2 Dora for Mangan. With Akagi's discards it does seem unlikely, but that doesn't mean that all Pinzu and Souzu tiles are safe. Souzu tiles should be safe in theory, but there's still a chance for a 5200-point direct hit with those as well. All Washizu can really rely on is matching the tiles in Akagi's discards; anything else has a chance of failure.

  1. Thanks. Has the author made any announcements about what he plans to do with the series when this match finally ends? I really can't imagine he could top an almost 200 chapter match. Pretty much anything else would be small-time compared to that.

  4. Good news everyone, Akagi Vol 29 is confirmed to be coming out March 2nd. So we'll get to use nice tankouban raws instead of magazine raws. Great job on pumping out these chapters

    1. Finally, god damn. That's particularly helpful since the mag raws that I have for those chapters are buttcheeks.
      (Also v1 of FKMT Allstars is coming out then too, fuck yes)
