Where are his parents? Someone should notice if their kid comes home bleeding from the head with a gun stuffed down his pants. And if their child goes out all night only to come back with 2 million. What the hell?
Akagi was the fruit of the Red Tree of Immortality. He was borne when he fell off a branch and landed on the shores of Tokyo, where he found a car and decided to play chicken off cliffs.
> Where are his parents?
He's too GAR to have parents.
They gambled Akagi when he was a baby. Their opponent cheated and won.
His father died gambling and his mother killed himself in front of his eyes.
His parents died in WW2
I like to think that his parents died in the war and he's living with relatives who don't give a shit about him.
Or his mother died giving birth from the sheer GAR.
He grew straight from the soil. His father is the moon and his mother is the sun.
>his mother killed himself
Doesn't make sense till I remembered...
In Akagi's case, it seems pretty fucking obvious that he's an orphan. Remember Akagi takes place 13 years after the war.
He probably called his mother a "retard" when he came out of her vagina.
I think the fist is the most likely answer.
Either his parents dont give a shit about him or they are dead
... DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT YEAR THE STORY TAKES PLACE IN?
I mean, all it takes is simple maths and basic history.
Here's a tip: HITLER.
Something called World War 2, never heard of it before.
as soon as akagi's head came out of his mom and he opened his eyes, he laughed quietly and called everybody in the room stupid goddamn suckers. then he blasted out of the womb into space, where he orbited the earth and threw space rocks at passing cars on the earth below for the first thirteen years of his life. on his thirteenth birthday, akagi hopped onto a falling meteor, landed on earth, and joined a gang.
That's just silly. Akagi can't breathe in space.
holy shit, somebody needs to draw this!
How would you know?
Akagi's dad is Kaiji
That makes no sense.
It's most likely he's an orphan, but did they ever drop any hints in the manga?
There's nothing Akagi can't do. Yes, he could even bring back Ed's mom to life, but he won't because that wouldn't be any fun.
Kaiji is Akagi's illegitimate son
akagi fucked his mom and made himself using a time machine
just passing by
"Thirteen years had passed since the end of the Pacific war."
Akagi is thirteen.
WAIT A MINUTE
No he would challenge ED to a gamble where if Ed could beat Akagi he would bring his mom back, Akagi would lose a few rounds to give him hope but quickly crush it and call him a retard.
They should of I always wanted to know his past oh well
More accurate, Akagi would be sitting out of the alchemy. Ed would fail. Akagi would say "If only I had alchemised...". Ed would respond "No, I did it myself". Then Akagi would be taken aback slightly and challenge the door monsters to a game played with the mother's mutilated, homonculus corpse.
Kaiji's a virgin.
>he would challenge ED
The birth of Akagi caused an explosion that wiped out Hiroshima. They just blamed it on the Americans because it's easier to explain.
The war ended when Akagi was born, both sides knew they could never be as GAR as he was.
Akagi is a radioactive atomic mutant. It's obvious, when you think about the timing.
And he can BREATH IN SPACE.
It all makes sense now.
I'd gladly help him with that.
I would believe it.
I'm guessing this actually had place somewhere?
Akagi is the son of evil. He crawls up from hell each day, pockets filled with sand.
Oh boy. You asked for this.
Akagia was born 13 years after the Pacific war and raised in an orphanage. As a fairly ugly teenager, she was seduced and impregnated by an older man who then left her. During childbirth doctors discovered that she had an intersex condition: internally, she had both male and female sex organs. Complications in the birth forced them to give her a sex change; and the baby was later kidnapped and never seen again. The former girl was sent out to make his way as a man, despite being uneducated for any job. As a girl he/she had preferred etiquette lessons, hoping to join an organization dedicated to providing "comfort and companionship" to astronauts. Handicapped by this and the physical after-effects of the birth, he used his secretarial skills to type manuscripts, and eventually began mahjonging for himself.
You've turned Akagi into Chuck Norris.
Isn't this thread the kind of epic that should appear in night shift /a/?
Professing sympathy, the friendly old man with stylish clothes offers to top his story. He guides him into a back room, and casts a net over the two of them. This is part of a time-machine. The young man is set loose in 1963 where he dates, falls for, seduces, impregnates, and leaves a young girl; at the same time the friendly old man with stylish clothes goes forward nine months, kidnaps a baby and takes it to an orphanage 13 years after the Pacific war. He then returns to 1963, and picks up the Unmarried Mother, who is just beginning to realize what has happened. As the friendly old man with stylish clothes tells him, "Now you know who he is—and after you think it over you'll know who you are . . . and if you think hard enough, you'll figure out who the baby is . . . and who I am."
...You win. Oh God damn it.
The friendly old man with stylish clothes then drops the Unmarried Mother, actually his younger self, at an outpost of the Washizu Bureau, a time-traveling secret police force that fixes events in history, such as making sure that a mahjong is so bungled that it does not destroy humanity. He has just recruited himself.
Finally the friendly old man with stylish clothes returns to 1970, arriving a short time after he left the mahjong parlor. He yells at a customer playing "I'm My Own Grandpa" on the jukebox. Closing the mahjong parlor he time-travels again to his home base. As he beds down for a much-deserved rest, he contemplates the scar left over from the Caesarean section performed when he gave birth to his daughter, father, mother and entire history. He thinks "I know where I came from—but where did all you 1-Pins come from?", possibly referring to his other selves, whose actions he observed and directed, or to his audience - the readers.
BRICKS FUCKING SHAT.
I lol'd so fucking hard at this thread.
What the fuck?
FUCK YES, THIS IS THE BEST TIME PARADOX EVER.
This must be the source material of all delicious selfcest fanart out there.
a GI raped his mother, after he was born both didn't care about him.
Delicious changed copypasta is delicious.
His mom must've cared, raising a suckling in post-war Japan is not fun.
Akagi raises Akagi with Akagi acting as his grandfather.
Also, I have to mention I like the idea of female Akagi.
I see what you did there.
Robert A. Heinlein's "All you zombies" never looked so good.
YOU'RE RUINING IT.
Too cool for tampons, fuck yeah.
Now, female Gai is something I can completely agree with.
How has no one posted this yet?
NO GIRLS ALLOWED.
I like the idea, but Akagirl would have to be futa.
Akagi girl can use strap ons.
Girl Akagi would be one funny looking chick.
On another note, if we're deciding Akagi's past, then how well did he do in school? Obviously he's a genius, but did he mess around with the teachers for the lulz?
He probably skipped class to point pistols at people and play chicken.
He cared more about gang rivalries than school. It's normal for geniuses to do badly in academia.
No idea what he would do.
I believe they mention him being a college graduate when he is working at the moneky toy factory, so he must not have traumatized the teachers too much.
Also, relevant comic.
he was in middle school when the series starts, so obviously. Messing around with the yakuza and all that.
Suppressed his power levels.
But he was popular with the girls.
akagi probably killed his parents as a prepubescent then lived off the streets
>In modern times, that too equates 19
I lol'd. And that reminds me of how awesome the narrator in Akagi is.
I think he would be too creepy. He would probably be the quiet, mysterious guy in class who is alone during breaks.
>The genius who failed his exam
Akagi needs a high school spinoff series, now.
Akagi lost his virginity the moment his voice finished changing
So, he has attributes of an Anon?
But with the brassest balls of all time
Anon is mysterious and creepy?
oh god lol. Awesome comic.
WHAT IS A GIRL
Akagi x gun is mai OTP
THE GUN WAS DOWN HIS PANTS
THEN THE GUN WAS THRUST INTO HIS MOUTH
NO NO NO!!
You ruined one of my favorite pictures by implanting thought of those candies coming from guys!
They are from the depths of hell.
The brown-bagged one came from Urabe, since he can't afford much with his 32-million yen debt.
Purple one came from Ichikawa
Pink one from Fake Akagi
The big one in his locker probably came from Washizu.
And the other various boxes in his lock probably came from Nangou, Osamu, etc.
This is some serious love drama.
"Will you accept these chocolates?"
"You're a retard, Yukio-san."
I wouldn't mind getting one from Osamu.
I mean, c'mon, he's adorable, just listen to his voice as he tries to sound confident, calling "Pons" and whatnot.
Anyway, Akagi is a virgin because nothing is good enough to satisfy him. Also, no women except the cigarette seller lady LOLOL.
I don't think Akagi minds getting candy from Osamu either.
The "in modern times" part killed me.
He was totally cute.
He reminds me of myself when I was trying to learn mahjong for the first time. ;_;
Who wouldn't want candy from Osamu? He's like a little puppy.
You forgot the little girl at begging of episode 1.
Also, people think that only person good for Akagi is himself.
She looks like Nekomusume.
that manga is awesome
Especially the "How to draw mahjong manga" part.
anybody knows where is this manga available for download?
NO SHINJI NOOOO
It's actually pretty old, but so much still applies to modern anime/manga it's almost depressing.
I actually thought Hiro was Osamu for a while. Then I realized that he still wouldn't be young.
"How to draw Mahjong Manga" really does fit Akagi perfectly.
"The opening scene has to be more exciting than the opening scene of Star Wars! A cloud of dust along a row of tiles!" Like how Akagi opens with an ominous thunderstorm and the narrator saying cool shit.
Also, "Woo hoo! Looks good to me and I don't know what the heck's going on!"
Seriously? I bet I could.
Hiro doesn't have the freckles.
-10 cute points.
could you post the art where some sluts are trying to tease akagi that remains still and bored playing mahjong ? (he has a yakuman in his hand)
Speaking about cute, what do you guys think, who's the most moe character in Akagi? I vote for Yukio.
3 promotional dragon girls
I have that picture, give me a minute to find it.
Washizu, by far.
fanart is based on 3d girls.
THE ANSWER IS CLEAR
awww, no moe for nangou? :'(
overusing the word moe is the cancer killing everything, moot agreed
Maybe a little.
I love him, the big lug.
But it actually applies in this case.
Moeblobs are not moe, but Washizu is.
It's sad to see this thread die, but such is the way of things
I know, this is an awesome thread for daytime /a/.
Oh Jesus so moe I died.
