Cheya Boyee, He Be Bad Mother Fucker, HardCore Anime! XXX

Well, at least until Kaiji.
He seemed like a badass dude in the episodes before that, but at that point you knew. He was fucking insane.
Nah, he is just a sweet boy.
No, he's fucking insane.
Not as insane as Washizu Iwao, that guy was fuckin' nuts.
Actually, the main difference between Akagi and Washizu is that Akagi's nuts, and Washizu's senile.
Fake rage, fake words, fake fights. I'm sick of them. They're nothing but a joke, and they'll never be enough to satisfy me.
Akagi's not really nuts, he's just got a rationality so profound it seems irrational to us. He's on a totally different mental level from most other people.
What about the time Washizu was thought to have possessed by a demon when he held the winning tile that would've drained all of Akagi's blood?
I agree. Since Akagi is beyond everyone else's reach, he resorts to self-destruction since no one will ever understand him.
The whole self-destruction thing is just his form of entertainment. It's not a cheap thrill, he doesn't feel alive outside of gambling his life. And his unique skills allow him to survive to gamble again - self preservation in a sense.
Yes. He was always a thrill-seeker. Even at the end of his life, he always thought life was just a game.
