It's hard to write a review of this that isn't biased by the sheer awesomeness of the last 3 volumes. So, part 1 of this review is going to solely cover the first 15 volumes, because realistically, that's the bulk of this manga. Part 2 will talk about the last 3 volumes and the impact they left. (No spoilers) Also, this review is from the perspective of someone who had only a little mahjong knowledge before starting.

One of the things you realize when you start playing mahjong in real life is that there is a huge deal of psychology mixed into it.

First off, do NOT read Ten if you know nothing of Mahjong! The rules are almost never explained, and they constantly use Mahjong terms. So either watch a quick 101 video on Mahjong or have Google at the ready to look up some terms.

I would also recommend reading Akagi before reading this, since some characters make a return, tho it's not a necessity.

On to the review then:

The art is probably the first thing you'll notice, it's not the best and gets pretty strange in some parts. For example characters having very strange proportions and the backgrounds being pretty basic to flat out just being white. read more
