It turns out there are some great anime about mahjong, the ancient tile game invented during the Qing dynasty, but which are really worth your time? This list ranks the best anime about mahjong, including older titles, as well as new mahjong anime that you may not know about.

One example of a great anime about mahjong is Akagi. Based on the manga by Nobuyuki Fukumoto, the story follows Shigeru Akagi as he enters the risky world of mahjong gambling. Another good mahjong anime is from the Detective Conan series, also known as Case Closed. In "Murder and Mahjong," Conan uses the same skills needed to win at mahjong to "stack the clues" and solve his latest mystery.
