One stormy night, Nangou is playing a game of Mahjong with the local yakuza. Soon, he finds himself on a losing streak. If Nangou loses, he will have to pay with his life. Suddenly, a young teenaged boy, Akagi Shigeru, barges in, drenched from the rain. After watching a couple of games, he offers to replace the struggling Nangou. At that moment, a new legend was born.

Overall this is pretty good, but this ending... what a letdown. I quite liked the main character though, could have been better if they removed some useless scenes (repetitive one). Better than Kaiji, in my opinion, no constant cryin' in this one!
