The story revolves around the Mahjong gambling exploits of Shigeru Akagi. After a death-defying game of chicken, Akagi nonchalantly enters a Yakuza Mahjong parlor to shake the cops' trail. Even unfamiliar with the rules of Mahjong, his gambling intuition is enough to save a small time gambler, Nangou, and grant him a seat at the gambling table. As the night progresses, the stakes are raised both within the game and for Akagi, who is under the suspicion of local police. However, Akagi overcomes the situation with his tactics, defiant of both life and chance. When he leaves the gambling house, no one present is in doubt of his genius.
During the story arc, Akagi faces and defeats several opponents in Mahjong, each with their own, distinct style of play. Akagi's genius allows him victory, ultimately defeating the "behind the stage king" of Japan and becoming a legend.

This one, even if it may seem strange, is my favorite of favorites.
Of course, with this hugely strange art style and sophisticated depths of Mahjong, this anime is not for everyone.
But I truly admire the spirit of this anime - through psychology, superior mind and his own brilliant personality a man beats his opponents.
This anime is not about the game of Mahjong - it is about a man, Akagi, who is absolutely like no other.
I'm too old for this shit, ain't I?
