So I recently downloaded Akagi after finishing Kaiji, but I don't know shit about Mahjong. Will this prevent me from enjoying it? I've watched two eps and it feels like I'm going of an experience not too far from reading yugioh.

Should I learn the rules and postpone the watching or just hope for the best?

Depending on the rules, my stance is kinda 'not sure if want', since the lack of a gar narrator is really noticeable.
