Akagi Chapter 271

Akagi Chapter 271 is now up! In this chapter, what should Akagi do now that he can be in Tenpai with the Pei?!

Thanks to Crump for the cleans and to Tambur for the typesetting. I might be streaming something random this Sunday at 2:00 PM PST, but there will definitely be a mahjong night tomorrow at 3:00 PM PST.

"There's nothing to hide at this point!"

So it's finally come to a point where Akagi's team is discussing the hand openly, just like Washizu's side has been doing the whole time. Akagi's decision to let Yasuoka say that he could be in tenpai with the Pei is interesting, I have to assume he figures that Washizu knows about it already. This round doesn't really seem like it's going to end in a direct hit, if anything it'll end with a Tsumo since both players' hands are pretty much transparent. But I suppose there's still a lot that could happen, it's only the 1st turn after all.

By the by, in case anyone is wondering, yes, if Akagi calls riichi right now it would be a double riichi. But with Washizu next to dead already, there's really no reason to call riichi even if he took the Pei single wait, since that would already be Hon Itsu and San Ankou for 8000 points, so even with a tsumo for 2000/4000 it would be more than enough to kill Washizu for sure. So calling riichi has no benefit, while going into silent tenpai will allow him to change up his hand if worst comes to worst. And calling riichi on the 7-sided wait to aim for Counted Yakuman is right out; he'd need a double yakuman off Yasuoka to make a comeback right now so even then it wouldn't be enough.

So, Yasuoka thinks Akagi should keep the Pei, while Ohgi thinks he should play it! Whose side will Akagi take? And how are they misreading Washizu?!

(I resisted the urge to have Ohgi stutter and say "Don-don-don-don-don-don-don't be afraid, Akagi!")


  1. Oh wow, Yasuoka finally talked! No discards were done this chapter but I still found it incredibly satisfying for some reason!

  2. The only answer I can come up with is that Washizu thinks that he is really in tenpai.because he lost so much blood so far. But I am not sure so how know.
