Life is as beautiful as you want it to be, but it´s only one. That´s why you must not get tired of it. Don´t care if you don´t say something that seems "important" because your mere existence is important for someone.

Took my time, I´m pooped... First time translating a song. It´s harder than a normal text.

Well, from the first Saki´s series I prefer 四角い宇宙で待ってるよ Shikakui uchû de matteru yo (We´ll wait four you in a squre shaped universe/cosmos), which is the second ending with little and superdeformed characters.


Oh yeah, the syllables as は"ha" and へ "he", when alone, have to be read as wa and e, respectively (vowels are italian/spanish ones, remeber.)

If someone see mistakes in the translation, just tell me.

That is absolutely and truly incredible!
For that, you deserve a piece of the cake too.

And I have to mention that very talented voice actress and singer, Rie Kugimiya, the voice of yuuki (2nd row, 1st character), and many others.

Seems right to me. Translating a song is a hard task, and this one is complicated by having mahjong words that don't have a translation outside the game.

You know, when I was on Japan 3 years ago, I bought the Toradora anime, few manga, a normal mahjong table (not digital), videogames, and gifts, of course. That anime has two main characters, Takasu Ryûji, a boy and Aisaka Taiga, a girl. Which happens to be the top left character in that character voice acting chart of Kugimiya Rie.

Since when I saw for the first time Toradora, I thought it was one of the best love stories I've could ever see.
Not only the main characters are interesting, the other characters were the same. Because of a very good plot and script.

And also, Kazekoshi's captain, Fukuji Mihoko is voiced by Horie Yui, who also does the voice acting of Kushieda Minori, Taiga's best friend.

As mentioned in another post, the live action drama of Akagi vs Washizu has now started. viewtopic.php?f=22&t=51475&start=75#p58767
The 1st episode was July 17th and the 2nd was on the 26th.
SPOILER ALERT: DO NOT CONTINUE READING IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED IT YET.

I'm a little confused about Akagis win at the end of the 2nd episode. He's waiting for a 5-dot for the win. Washizu has one but is reluctant to toss it. He discards something else and lets his henchman discard his own 5-dot to see if it will pass. Akagi does not call it for the win. After Akagis man takes his turn, Washizu tosses his 5-dot and Akagi rons it for a direct hit.
Shouldn't this be a case of temporary furiten?
I must be missing something.

(A player is in temporary furiten if they pass up an opportunity to take a ron win. They will continue to be temporarily furiten until their next turn.)

Akagi has his turn after Washizu's henchman (Suzuki). So the temporary furiten ended when Akagi took his turn.

I got it.....I think.
If you pass up a ron win from the player on your RIGHT, you are in temporary furiten for the next 2 players, until you draw yourself.
If you pass up a ron win from the player OPPOSITE you , you are in temporary furiten for the next player only, until you draw yourself.
If you pass up a ron win from the player on your LEFT, you are not really temporary furiten for anybody, since it's now your turn.

Searched the forum for a similar situation. Think I found one. viewtopic.php?f=5&t=52872#p54297

Thanks.

I've done it once, passing up agari-pai from kamicha only to hit shimocha immediately afterwards. It felt good. :twisted:

This situation is called Yamagoshi: 山越し. is something like: The wind descending from the mountain, or something like that. This seems to be one of the abilities that Takakamo Shizuno (from Saki) posseses apart from that awesome ability to nullify opponents special skills and that control of the Wall.

Watching the Akagi drama I feel I´m hooked, but just because it´s Akagi.

The actor who plays Akagi and the one doing Washizu, doesn´t have the impact the characters had in the anime, for example. The old man does a better work than the youngster, but he doesn´t look as mad Washizu is. The young one, just look like the average handsome actor, famous for being young and liked by the girls. But I didn´t see his other works, so I don´t know. Usually, I don´t see dramas at all...

Ôgi, Yasuoka and Washizu´s henchmen are decent enough, in fact, they are the best of the drama, for me at least.

Also the "blood" is quite lame.

I just downloaded the Crunchyroll app for the PS4 which lets you stream anime and live-action dramas (free with ads or paid without).

Had a quick browse through the content not really expecting to find anything even vaguely mahjong-related but actually they have the new Akagi series!

They currently have episodes 1 to 6 (Jp dialogue and Eng captions), with ep 7 coming tomorrow. Should also work on PS3 and PS Vita I think.

They have Saki, the three series. At least in PS3.

I usually watch Crunchyroll anime on PC.

Yeah, there's a lot more content available than I thought at first. The live-action Akagi just happened to be in the current and popular lists.

I just came back here to say I tried searching on "mahjong" and found the Akagi and Saki (original and Achiga-hen) anime on there too.

Then browsing the full anime list I also found Kaiji.

It's pretty handy to be able to watch them in decent resolution on my TV and use my laptop at the same time (like now for example).
