Things I learned from watching Saki:

• It's fashionable to wear a live cat around your waist

• It's doubly fasionable if the cat you wear around your waist makes the same funny expressions as you do

• Every household, maid cafe, and hot springs hotel in Japan has an auto-shuffle mahjong table

• Be careful with said auto-shuffle mahjong table because all the tiles are electrically charged, resulting in frequent lightning flashes and thunderous sound effect during play

• When you're out of breath from running in the rain, people won't mind if you embrace them tightly for ten minutes

• Spontaneously sprouting cat-ears and animal tail does NOT startle people around you

• It doesn't violate building code (or common sense) to build a house on the rooftop of another building

• Red Bull gives you wings -- literally

• If you have oversized knockers, hugging a stuffed animal as support when walking around is effective in reducing back pain

• Parents, be sure to withhold reward when your child does badly and punish her when she does well. In no time you'll also have a little genius in your hand.

So my fellow Saki fans... what have YOU learned from watching this show?

You know.... I don't see a lot of Mexicans or other South Americans in anime either.... OMG, I am in love with racist propaganda?.....
<holding breath> <thinking> <worry>
Oh well! Still love it. Don't care.

Oh! One thing I learned.... Haramura's plastic surgeon sucks, those boobs look like a botched job to me.... And also, Japanese parents are more accepting of plastic surgery on their young girls....

I learned that special effect is only good for battle and shouldn't be used too often with usual day events.

There are plenty of black people in anime. Not necessarily very well drawn, mind you. Of course, the same thing goes for a lot of non-Japanese ethnic groups.

If you're looking for real prejudice in anime, you have to look to things like the virtual absence of Japanese of Korean origin, the virtual absence of Japanese descended from their "untouchables", the virtual absence of people born mentally or physically handicapped, and so on. Japanese people might never meet a foreigner, but these kinds of people? Oh, yes. But you very rarely see them shown at all. They touch on controversial issues, or make advertisers and viewers uncomfortable.

Portrayals of WWII that admit that the Japanese government may have done wrong -- you do see them more often these days.

I think the "house" on top of the school building is actually a converted chapel. Still an interesting architectural decision.

Things I've learned watching Saki...

The professional class in rural/suburban Japan often live in converted double-wide trailers (see view of Haramura's house).

About 30-40% of female high-school mahjong players are gay.

Magical girls really exist and they play tournament mahjong. Check out those transformation sequences!

Yuuki could probably beat any mahjong player in Japan if she'd start eating tako tacos. At least in the East wind round.

I learned the mahjong played in Saki series is truly unrealistic.
