Takashi TenTen is a friendly guy who happens to be good at mahjong; or to be more precise, cheating at it. He's often hired to turn the tables around in the client's favour. If he gets caught, he lets his opponents beat him, because he knows how frustrating it is to lose. In the yakuza gamble, he joins the east side.
Hiroyuki IgawaA youth who becomes Ten's friend after a gamble early on. Unlike Ten he has a natural talent for mahjong, but doesn't like taking risks. Occasionally serves as the series' narrator.
Shigeru AkagiAn enigmatic man and a legendary mahjong player. Akagi has his own prequel series, which you are probably more familiar with than this.
KenA friend of Hiroyuki's. He plays for the East side in a Yakuza gamble.
Mitsui SogaA brilliant old man who plays for West.
Ginji AsaiPlays for East.
Shuuzou KanamitsuThe head priest of a mahjong temple. He joins the East side.
Hitoshi WashioA really skilled mahjong player. He plays for the East side.
Katsumi HaradaThe head of a Yakuza gang. He plays for the West side.
