Description: A genius who fell into darkness. The god of the underworld.

Akagi Shigeru runs from a Chicken race where he almost died to a Mahjong parlor, where a man is losing all his money to the Yakuza. Akagi, who is only 13, tells him that he plays it wrong, although he has never played the game before. Akagi then replaces him in the game, and there a legend is born.

When the police come to check in on the parlor to see if the child that ran from the Chicken race is there, they deny the relation of Akagi to the chicken fight. In the end the policeman invites Akagi to a much more organized Mahjong game and from there the legends only continue to develop.

Fan theory:

 

Washizu dies and goes to hell before the games ends. His funeral lasts for the entirety of the remaining 10 chapters.

 

Unsatisfied with the ending, Akagi travels to hell to challenge Satan at mahjong with Washizu's eternal soul at stake. We'll call this arc Akagi's Inferno and hopefully, it's going to last another 300 chapters.

 

Nah, that arc will be saved as a sequel to Ten.

 

Like, Washizu dies, they have a funeral, then the author is like "Read Ten to find out what happens next in Akagi's life! Then tune in next week to the thrilling sequel to Ten, from Akagi's point of view!"

 

Then we get to the next chapter, Akagi has just died--as is canon--and wakes up in hell. Then "Ah, Washizu! You conquered Hell after all! I've been waiting a long time for this--let's have a rematch, hmm-hm-hm...."

And its done, he's died.

fuck, i really can't see the washizu-arc having a good ending at all

HOLY BANANA, i wanna read more, what will happen next ? i can't waiiiiiiiiit !

Thanks FKMTkrazy for delaying 290 so that you could release it alongside 291. I appreciate that decision. :)

No, Akagi can't kan any more, he only has one tile. You can't kan a discard with an open pon. Also that would be suu kantsu, when one person kans 4 times it isn't a drawn game, it's a yakuman.

I meant Washizu calling kan with his new draw on one of the triplets he's probably going to call soon.

Ehm, I don't know how Washizu and co. forgot that Yasuoka has two of the 9p. And they're transparent too, so they should have noticed.

 

Washizu needs to discard his 9p for his win, Yasuoka can pon that, giving Washizu an additional draw. That draw could be Akagi's 5s or even a tile he can kan. If it really is a kan tile and he calls kan and doesn't win from the dead-wall draw, the game would be an abortive draw because of the 4th kan, and we could have another game to enjoy for 10 years.

Oh, don't tell me Washizu is going to become an hero to let Akagi live.

289 chapters and counting vs. 1155 chapters and counting.

 

I think not.

 

You have to covert those numbers for it to be a proper comparison.

Akagi gets a new chapter once a month.

Ippo gets one every 8.5 days.

 

Ippo will hit chapter 1200 before Akagi even hits chapter 300.

What. The. Flying. Frag. Seriously. Seriously. Seriously! FFS, this manga will take longer to finish than Ippo.

Well since no progress, about the magazine front cover.... dibs on girls #1 and #3 at the top.

If Akagi calls Pon, he won't be able to draw again until after Washizu. He'll have to go into a closed wait on his 3 or 5 sou and hope that Yasuoka draws the other ton (or that Washizu doesn't).


We've known what he did for 2 weeks now. <.<

Plan for the next few chapters:
 
1. Yasuoka draws something (maybe one of the two remaining Tons) but Akagi asks him to discard his 2-sou.
2. Akagi calls Pon, his next draw is the final 2-sou to complete his Yakuman hand.
3. He fails to get the Rinshan draw, but his tile is opaque.
4. Akagi hangs on to the opaque tile, Yasuoka can't get a good draw and Washizu will probably draw one of the Tons he needs. However he will need to discard something to confirm his win but won't have a clue what to discard because Akagi is sitting on an opaque tile.
5. If Washizu avoids dealing in, Akagi will continue to draw opaque tiles for further interference against Washizu. It will probably come down to Washizu's final draw and discard which will determine his death. Since Akagi survives to Ten, the only thing remaining is guessing which tile Washizu kills himself on.

It's like the event horizon, the closer you get to it the slower everything moves. 

 

I have to say this is the best description for this manga I have ever seen.

I don't know why I'm so disappointed, but damn.

 

I came over from the anime show to see how it all ended, read up to

poor ten, i hope he at least made it to the top 10 behind ichikawa 

Nice prediction regarding the potential kan on the 2-sou.  Now that Akagi's drawn the Xia for the dora indicator, Washizu's remaining outs are Nan x 1, Ton x 2.  If Akagi does draw the 2-sou, here's my prediction for what could happen next:

 

Spoiler

A ron off Suzuki with a yakuman wouldn't be enough to overcome the point difference, it would have to be a double yakuman. So Suzuki can't be suppressed; only Washizu can. In fact, Suzuki kind of wants Akagi to ron off him; that would win the game for Washizu.
