With the weird pacing Saki shows always have, I was gonna wait and marathon...

But I didn't make it, can't resist watching ><

The tacos are back baby. Loved some of the character interactions this episode. Looking forward to the tournament soon.

Getting to the point where I really love Saki. Just about all the powers and just them playing. I believe next episode is where I stopped reading the manga. Never got why I stopped reading.

Ah, so it's a flashback to the pre-Nationals four-school training camp, as covered by the manga. Can't recall off the top of my head how much of it retcons the camp as depicted in the first anime (Kaori's all-green yakuman is still there), but we do get some things such as the reign of Cold Touka, and the appearance of the KuroMaho combo once again.

It is a bit weird, though, to cover all this in flashback, if only because we then get flashbacks-within-a-flashback, and the episode ends in the middle of the flashback still. Ah well, chalk it up to a quirk of the adaptation, I guess. Next time, we get to see just what Maho is capable of as a mahjong player...

Despite the serious lack of Mahjong action so far, I'm loving the first episodes simply because of the diverse teams.

Every character has an interesting personality, quirks, and looks (plenty of non-eccentric ones too). That's a lot to say about a show that begins a new season by introducing well over 20 of them.. (some of whom aren't in the tournament at all)


I'm going to miss Achiga-hen's cheering squad T_T ^

So, I'm curious... Was there another anime before the Nationals that wasn't the first Saki or episode side of A?

Yea, I saw the time difference for a sequel and was surprised. Wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything. Thanks Kami.

This amazes me about Saki, how every character is so clearly distinct from all the others even at a glance.

I like the first one in the 2nd to last row
and the third one from the right in the 2nd row..

wahaha

Most of them have quirks and some of them have super powers. It's really a fantastic character cast.

Time for Yuuki to start rocking the cape!

There's so many characters in Saki tbh so I'm quite excited about the tournament!

And here, we get to see how Nodoka and Yuuki first met, as well as how Miss Subara knew of them.

And then, Maho!



Also, jealous Momo is jealous (of Yumi seemingly being on close terms with Hisa). On the other hand, Kana apparently seems to support Hisa x Mihoko…

Jealous Momo really is adorable, though…



(Someone needs to do a "trapped behind smartphone glass" version of that pic.)

And after all that, we're finally back to the nationals. We get a taste of Himematsu's power, and Hisa completely dominates Kiyosumi's first match, so not much to see there. Then, of course, there is cape-wearing Yuuki, and looks like we start the quarterfinals match next time in full force, which I'm sure is great for anyone who was waiting for some real mahjong action.

Also, chibi ED! One that is clearly inspired by Takeshi's Castle.

Cape yuki and jealous momo are why I love this show ><


I hope they give Yuuki a chance to shine some though, she deserves it, and I really don't want this to be the Saki and Nodacchi show.
