Shigeru Akagi

Japanese name: 赤木しげる
Akagi is introduced as a deceptively adult looking young boy, whose spark of genius transcends age and resides in gambling, especially in the game mahjong. Throughout the story, Akagi utilizes techniques other gamblers don't dare to, in order to sway his opponents: brazen cheating, extremely risky maneuvers, far fetched bluffs, a blatant disregard for his own life. These actions make him a heretic among "ordinary" men, yet allow him to unflinchingly defeat his opponents with a level of play that is marked as godly. After gaining mythical status at 13, he disappears for 5 years and resurfaces to become a legendary figure in the whole of Japan.

My favorite character of all times.
He has a real samurai spirit and sees no other meaning in life but mind battles.
He is solid, always calm and SUPER COOL.
And yet, Akagi is full of life, like all other characters of Nobuyuki Fukumoto-sensei. He is made with brilliant psychological authenticity, so I feel him more like a real man, rather then an anime character.
I'm too old for this shit, ain't I?
