9/26 Release: Akagi 288 & Zawa Anthology Chapters

Those who have read to the end of Ten will know the significance of September 26th, but whether or not you do, it's the day we're releasing several Akagi-related chapters, 1 Akagi chapter and 2 Zawa Zawa Anthology chapters! If you missed my stream of Washizu Mahjong, you can still view it on my twitch channel or on youtube!

Thanks to Tambur and Crump for cleaning and typesetting all of these chapters, and to Denji for translating the Zawa Anthology chapters!

Akagi 288
Akagi's Backfires
You Can't Play Mahjong On An Empty Stomach

"Just possess my fingertips, one last time!"


Probably the most noteworthy thing about this chapter was how much extra effort Tambur put into typesetting it. Hopefully it was enough to distract you from the fact that this was yet another recap chapter, only of the round to now instead of the whole match. All we got to see is that Yasuoka's draw is transparent, meaning it could be the Ton. I don't really see any chance of it being anything else, honestly, Washizu's just been hyped up too much.


I've come to expect these chapters to be stupid and irritating but this one was actually pretty good. I can totally see Akagi just wanting friends and wanting to get away from the gambling lifestyle, and it was cute how it got tied together to his personality in Ten. And of course, he scares little girls away with his smile.

This one, on the other hand, was just kind of a whole lot of nothing. It's set in the time between Akagi and Ten which is fine, but Akagi has long hair for no reason and nothing really happens except him eating ramen. There weren't even any jokes, really. Boo.

So yeah, thanks for spending Akagi's 17th Kinichi with us. Be sure to watch the replay of the Washizu Mahjong match, it was pretty wild.

    Fun fact: Suzuki Tsuta is actually a BL mangaka who has drawn multiple Fukumoto yaoi doujins. In fact, the picture of Ginji in the site's background was also drawn by her. Pretty neat, eh?

    1. I had a feeling that it looked pretty yaoi. Not that it's a bad thing.

  5. Was the word "chuunibyou" used in the Japanese version of 22? What were "edgy" and "normie" originally?

    1. Yup, they were chuunibyou and riajuu respectively. I know that edgy is a bit of a stretch, but I wanted to avoid intrusive translator's notes, especially since the chapter was so short.

  6. Yayy!! Another chapter of Akagi. We even got a draw this time even though we don't know what it is yet.

    Also, there are a few typos in the chapter. There were two places where the meaning got reversed.

    1. Are you saying there were mistranslations as well as typos, or are you saying that the typos changed the meaning? Not that it matters much in this chapter I guess

  7. God fucking damn it I should have seen this coming. I can only pray that this is the last throw away chapter in the arc (although that seems unlikely). How does it take a whole month make this? It almost seems like 'ol Fook Moot-er doesn't know what to do so he puts out these 'nothing' chapters to buy himself more time.

    Now that I've gotten that out of my system, can anyone tell me when the next chapter should be out?
