How come I have been browsing /a/ for years and never see ANYONE ever mention One Outs?
I don't know anything about it except from my forum times years years ago when lots of people claimed it was "like Death Note but with Sport".
So...what do you think of it /a/non?
How about you lurk more? One Outs gets plenty of mention and you'd know it if you really had been here for years.
because /a/ only cares about shitty nostalgia shit and flavor of he season shit
Nope, browsing here since 2009. I don't remember particular threads about it and I've been using the 4chan browser for years; I would know if there was a thread.
Because Nobody wins but I
We do have occasional threads but don't expect them to reach more than 20 posts at best.
Not enough cute girls
Browsing here once a year doesn't count, newfag.
Is it worth watching though?
Because you're a newfag who has only been here for a week
>browsing here since 2009
>An anime adaptation by Madhouse began airing on October 7, 2008.
You haven't been lurking enough.
Yep. Best sub group I've seen too.
Everyone was gay for Toua back then.
I guess it's because it's so similar to Akagi but Akagi is much better. Still it's pretty good.
>browsing here since 2009
>been here since 2009
>doesn't remember the One Outs threads when it was airing
OP, they were seriously some of the most fun I've had on /a/ and you missed them.
One Outs anime was pretty good; had me in the edge of my seat almost every episode. It's easily my favorite out of the Masato Hagiwara three (Kaiji and Akagi).
Shame that the manga isn't fully translated (only translated from when the anime ended until the end). Would've loved to read 'em all in one go.
Also, that motherfucking towel. Anybody has that faggy screenshot?
lurk moar faggot
god fucking dammit
Is that the VA?
You've never been in 3x3 thread have you?
it occasionally gets mentioned in kaiji or akagi threads as well
I don't blame them.
>tfw I was Toua's Towel
I was just about to post that I missed Chinanon, but I figured no one would remember those threads...
There were plenty of One Outs threads when it was airing. Hell, I bought the soundtrack and ripped it for the One Outsbros here because the usual groups weren't doing it.
But I love One Outs and people talk about it all the time in FKMT threads and 3x3 threads
And thank you for that! I still have it.
>Shame that the manga isn't fully translated
I think only chapters 33 to 53 and 63 to 81 are missing.
I wonder if Vendetta are going to go back and fill in the gaps.
>tfw no second season
why? the manga even already finished
And we still hold you dear in our hearts
If the manga has finished then there's no more manga to promote sales for.
Anime is often an ad for the source material, if the source material is over there's no more reason to make a show about it.
You could read the scanlation now that's finished.
One Outs isn't popular enough to get its own threads, but people talk it about it in baseball threads and fukomoto/kaiji threads
Plus its seinen and /a/ mostly likes shit made for teenage kids or 30 year old otakus
>I wonder if Vendetta are going to go back and fill in the gaps.
Answered my own question. They've put it in their completed projects.
Could be worse.
Tokuchi and Akagi gamble against each other, who wins?
/a/ watching it.
Tokuchi, Akagi, Zero and Akiyama have a 4 way gamble. Who wins?
Zero is irrelevant. Change him with Kaiji and we have something interesting going on.
fucking lurk more.
No idea who Akiyama is but Zero is easily the weakest of the other 3
zero without giass?
Kaiji would destroy everyone else. Kaiji is the only one who can really fake his own emotions and actions to trick the other characters' psychoanalyses attempts.
Shit I laughed.
He's the MC from One Out's authors other gambling manga.
Yeah I would think that Zero is pretty weak compared to the others. Kaiji though is a whole different kind of gambler and that would be cool as shit, but I don't know if I can imagine him winning
Is Akagi young or old?
Kaiji with preptime can be very powerful. As the underdog, he'd win. Whenever he is in that position, he generally does.
The first watch it is rly good never thought baseball to be this interesting
At his strongest, so young.
But Akagi never loses when he's youg
I actually started watching MLB games after seeing One Outs. Obviously there's not the same level of strategic depth as in the show, but its still really interesting, and I don't usually like watching pro sports.
Baseball!Akagi, like all forms of Akagi, is awesome.
Akagi hasn't been tested like Kaiji has.
Me too. That and many people from my country play in one particular team. Watched one season and was totally hooked with that team.
Last year they were incredibly disappointing, though.
But all Akagi and Toua are is good cheaters and good readers of the human character. Kaiji is a good gambler.
Maybe I just want him to win because he always does his best.
Are you Cuban, Dominican, or am I way off?
I haven't really watched much MLB, but I watched Major because I've been liking baseball anime and fuck that was amazing.
>like Death Note but with Sport
No, it's just Akagiball.
Giants were pretty decent last year, I guess Giants fans have higher standards than the rest of us though.
There's a reason Kaiji is the most popular of FKMT's works
What, pretty decent? They finished in like second to last place. Apparently it was one of the worst title defenses in the history of baseball or something.
That no-no from Timmy was pretty cool, though.
You should start. Yankees just signed a guy from Japan in one of the biggest pitcher contracts ever. And get this.. he was undefeated last year with a 24-0 record and a 1.27 ERA, plus he's a tricky/strategic player who mainly relies on his fastball.
Oh shit. Pick the corner mine, Kaiji
I should also add that he led his previously shitty-to-mediocre team to a championship in the Nippon League.
I can see it now. 2 and a half episodes dedicated to this one box. He thinks of ever possible solution he can to try and raise his chances of winning, but then this accursed box shows up. SHIKASHII. SHIKAASHII. ZAWA ZAWAS etc for 40+ minutes of Kaiji crying.
Is there an actual strategy or reason for that?
Loved oneouts but the ending was rushed to hell. Although it was still somewhat satisfying for me.
>Ichijou!! L-let's call it a draw!!
>Just give me 5000 yen for each mine swept!
>Implying that's impressive enough for a 7 years contract
Not really, it's fucked, fifty-fifty. But it's all about the gamburu.
>not reading it
Why is Ichijou so moe?
Ok, so other than Shinobu Kaitani and Nobuyuki Fukumoto, are there other manga authors who do gambling/crime stories?
Look up gambling in mangaupdates and you'll see a lot of interesting stuff. Death Pie is another great mahjong manga.
No, at that point it's all luck, which is hilarious, because Kaiji has even admitted that luck never flows in his favor
What happens in the One Outs manga? Do the Lycaons win the championship? Does Tokuchi ever get paid?
Gamble Fish is pretty good, but it also has a lot of asspulls
Did Tokuchi get into a bar fight in the manga?
Not even not-Akagi can make baseball interesting.
It's in rec charts but I still haven't seen it.
>Is there an actual strategy or reason for that?
Not in this case, the game is skill based but occasionally there are times when you have to take a chance.
>Implying baseball is not interesting
Tokuchi buys the team after he took all of the previous owners money. after that he made the team's paycheck depend on a vote done by the audience; and if they didn't win the game the ticket was free and the team didn't get paid.
And really slow scanlations.
>Not enjoying baseball aime
That's really cool. Tokuchi is a good guy even if he acts like a heartless cunt sometimes.
American, please. Baseball is even more boring than cricket.
Alright, I didn't think so because that's happened to me too many times and it's kuyashii as fuck.
Maybe you're supposed to prevent situations like that from occuring beforehand.
>implying I am American
I do agree that cricket is boring.
Though I would watch a Cricket Akagi in a heart beat.
I can't stand a IRL Baseball game,but i enjoy a lot shit like One outs or Diamond no Ace
The last few games the mariners figured out how to beat tou's trick and could consistently hit home runs off of him; but he decided to keep on playing and destroy his ERA to win the last game. And when he won the last game he just disappeared without a word.
And that's just threads that actually have "one outs" in the subject field.
You're a goddamn liar or just a dumb fuck.
Chinaland? I remember that guy.
>that gay ass opening
Started watching one outs a couple weeks ago, but I'm only 6 episodes in and struggling. It's kind of shitty, and by kind of shitty I mean very shitty. Probably going to drop it soon.
I love baseball, it's my favorite sport, probably why I think this is so shit, baseball doesn't work that way.
And while on the topic, I also hated ookiku whatever the fuck that was called, loved Major and cross game, and H2 and Touch were pretty good as well. Ace of Diamond is average.
It's Akagi with baseball.
