This week for Manga Monday I’m covering an oddball adaptation! It’s Fate/mahjong night by TYPE-MOON!
Plot: It’s essentially Fate/Stay Night meets mahjong, with the Holy Grail War being fought by playing mahjong. Yea it’s pretty freaking ridiculous, but this is TYPE-MOON we are talking about, they can do some pretty oddball stuff.
Characters: We have all the various characters from Fate/Stay Night show up in this adaptation, since it’s pretty much Fate/Stay Night, just a little different. Rin is still my favorite character, though Sakura is pretty awesome as well. However since this is a 4-Koma adaptation expect some gags.
Art: The art is awesome, in fact it’s great. I wouldn’t expect this to be originally published on the web, but it’s not bad at all.
Overall: This is a pretty funny take on the hugely popular Fate/Stay Night storylines, so if you’re a TYPE-MOON fan at all, you’ll probably want to check the series out.
For those who like: Fate/Stay Night, Overly Dramatic Scenes, Awesome Mahjong, Mahjong, Great Artwork.
Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
