This is from a 2009 episode of Numb3rs called 'Trouble in Chinatown'. Naturally there is mahjong there too.

There´s a new akagi drama, I was unable to take a pic, but looks cool. Not as good as the anime, but really close.

Thanks for the tip. I just watched the 1st episode (with english subtitles). It's a 10 episode series of the Washizu Mahjong arc with a running time of about 60-minutes each. I think it started on July 17th.

I read that this is the 3rd live action drama featuring Akagi. There were 2 others ????
addendum: Did some research, these films were released 3 years after the manga was started and BEFORE the anime so the storylines may differ a little. (Akagi the Gambler 1 and 2, 1995 and 1997, respectively). Tried to find them online. Was unsuccessful.

Cool, I'll look out for the new series.

Here are a couple of nice shots of an autodealer table from The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006).

I welcome any appearances in movies, TV shows or video games - so thanks. :)
