The Akagi manga series begins on one stormy night, when Nangō is playing a game of Mahjong with the local yakuza.
A second live-action drama series based on Nobuyuki Fukumoto’s Akagi -Yami ni Oritatta Tensai- manga will premiere this October on the BS Sukapaa! station.
The new series is titled Akagi “Ryūzaki, Yagi-hen” “Ichikawa-hen” (Akagi “Ryūzaki, Yagi Arc” “Ichikawa Arc”) and it is a continuation of the 2015 live-action series.
The manga inspired a 2005 television adaptation by anime Studio MADHOUSE, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime starting in 2013.
