Perhaps we will, one stormy night...
As for me, I got into Mahjong through luck really. I hung out with a lot of people who knew more about anime that I did and one time they were making fun of someone else we knew who proclaimed to be a "master" of anime, but he didn't know what Akagi was, so I noted the name and watched the entire thing without understanding Mahjong one bit. I remember forcing myself to get through it and wishing I could play a game this complicated.
Next time I saw them I just said "Oh, I saw Akagi and it was good but I didn't understand it" and they were all just like "Hey, we'll teach you how to play, anon". We all lived together next year so they taught me during the first week of my second year, I remember the game we played really well because it was such a struggle to understand it since they just gave me a quick guide and we started playing. Still, when we finished that game (I came second) I remember going back upstairs, watching a random episode of Akagi and having my heart skip a beat because I fucking understood it.
Have you seen/read any other Mahjong related media, like Legendary Gambler Tetsuya or Ten?
