Okay, on /a/'s recommendation, I'm watching Akagi. I just finished episode 11, and I have to ask...does it get any better? Akagi the character is awesome, and everything he does that isn't about mahjongg is awesome, but...the actual mahjongg portions of the show are just a bunch of people talking dramatically about a game I don't understand. Is it worth continuing? Should I bother if the only parts I find really interesting are the parts that AREN'T directly about mahjongg, the basis for the show's plot?
