365 Days of Anime Characters: Day 357/365 Akagi Shigeru

Day 357/365

Akagi Shigeru

From the anime Akagi, Akagi Shigeru enters the world of Yakuza Mahjong playing at the tender age of 13. He starts off knowing nothing of the game but quickly gets a reputation among the top players. He will do pretty much anything to make a game more exciting for himself.

Why I like him: I love it when people have a quick learning curve for things. Sometimes strategy is really easy to figure out for people. I really enjoyed his pure guts too. Most kids aren't mature enough to contend with adults in this kind of way but he pulled it off.

Why I hate him: Maybe just a little too cocky at times for my taste.

Overall: What an intense anime about Mahjong. I hope more comes out someday.

    Akagi is pretty awesome, definitely the main reason to watch that series. I like Kaiji more, but an Akagi is fine too.

    Akagi is more of a straight thriller, while Kaiji has the social commentary going on along with the thrilling plot. I enjoyed them in different ways, too, so I get what you mean!

    Sometimes you want to see someone overcome weakness. That’s Kaiji. Other times you want see someone invincible mercilessly mow everyone down. That’s Akagi.

  5. Was this one that I recommended way back when? Glad you took to it! It’s hard to give Akagi anything less than grudging respect for the fear he’s able to instill in his competition.

He isn't afraid to take risks, even around adults that could make his life go out in a flash. Akagi's crazy adventure in the dark world of gambling Mahjong starts. […]
