HERO Chapter 15

HERO 15 is now ready, and with it comes a special chapter from Maeda Jirou about working for Fukumoto! In this chapter, why did Hiroyuki discard a pair of the Dora in his first two discards?!

Thanks to Tambur for the typesetting and to Biggums for the cleans. There will be a mahjong night on Saturday at 3:00 PM PST, and I'll be streaming some Mukoubuchi movies this Sunday at 2:00 PM PST.

"In an instant, unease would give way to temptation...!!"

So it turns out that Hiroyuki was, in fact, going for Kokushi. But he accidentally knocks over a 2-man, exposing that his hand is not in Tenpai when he goes to Riichi! This means there is nothing to worry about for Ichikawa... that is, if he could see. But as we know, the blind Ichikawa has no was of telling that the tile Hiroyuki knocked over was a 2-man... or does he? Yes, Ichikawa boldly plays a Xia... BUT HE DEALS INTO HIROYUKI'S KOKUSHI MUSOU!!!

Where did that 2-man go?! Why is Hiroyuki in tenpai?! And how could Ichikawa tell that the tile he knocked over was a 2-man without seeing?!?! Did he really sense Hiro's aura? Was he able to infer it from how Sasaki played his Chun so boldly right after the riichi? Or maybe...?


  1. I think Hiroyuki descended into darkness this chapter

  2. That extra chapter made me feel all warm and fuzzy.

  3. when did hiroyuki get so lucky?

  4. So this Ten's 2-man was useful
