In this 3 episode OVA (it still says its ongoing but there is no release date for the next dvd), the world's prominent figureheads battle it out in a furious high stakes battle of...

...MAHJONG!

Yes in this universe, every figure head is a master Mahjong player and all the worlds politics are dealt by playing a game of mahjong. The first episode is entirely based on the manga while the other 2 episodes are original stories written by creator, Hideki Ohwada. Forget Hetalia Axis Powers, this is how political satire should be.

There are no cute looking bishounen characters running around here. In this anime every figurehead read more

Politics is often thought of as a dull and dreary affair; several old men in suits debating issues like agricultural legislation and increasing taxes a little. But perhaps the most uninteresting of all is international affairs; a battle to get as much as you can from someone else while giving them back as little as possible in return. It’s a world of faked smiles and awkward handshakes.

If only the countries of the world could compete against other like men; pitting themselves against one another in fierce competition, as they battle for ultimate supremacy.

And what better way to do that, than a game of 2v2 read more

Epic mahjong. Koizumi is more epic, but Saki has cute girls.

Both contains a stupid amount of things that makes absolutely no sense but somehow are funny as hell...

although it's a short series, you can go read the manga if you liked it.

Anime: Touhai Densetsu Akagi: Yami ni Maiorita Tensai
Though the Mudazumo manga is superior in my mind both series deal with mahjong played at a fantastic level, though Akagi is way more grounded in reality. Still I think most people who enjoyed either series will enjoy the other.

Anime: Shoubushi Densetsu Tetsuya
Even more mahjong. If you liked Tetsuya then you should definitely check out Koizumi.
