Nodoka's game was rather nondescript. But the captain's match is finally here!

OMG! The 3D light effects, the unnecessary spinning, and the characters interacting within those 3D effects!

THIS IS THE EPISODE I WAS WAITING FOR!
(excuse my poor camera quality.)

A million wins for Zenkoku-hen episode 9 @.@
http://www.crunchyroll.com/saki/episode-9-648581 Bookmarking this and spamming it once I have access at my house <3

EDIT: Forgot about this one:

Reminds me of Tom and Jerry where everything interacted with is of a decided lower quality.

Episode 10



Toyone's past was cute <3
I really like how everyone one her team are in support of each other for this tournament. Ofc, she has the skills to pull it through as evidenced in the latest episode.

I'm pretty damn curious to see how this match will end.

That's one of the really interesting things about Saki. As is apparent in past seasons, etc, we learn a lot about the main team's rivals.

We all know that Saki's team will be in the finals, that's obvious. But, to see that their rivals are really great people that have a lot of faith in their own team's chances of winning is really interesting. One can even root for the other teams (or team members) in Saki and hope that they get in the top two spots (or get more points than the other teams for one of the five matches) so that they can get close to realizing their own dreams.

To be honest, I was strangely crushed by the fact that Senriyama Girls' High School (the one from Achiga-hen with Toki who could see the future) wouldn't be able to win against Achiga and Shiraitodai.

In most anime, it's usually the main team vs everybody else (with a nearly 100% chance of winning unless the writer was trying to be "different.' Then they win every major game until the final deciding match.) Here, each team isn't just a "villain of the week" rival. They really deserve to win (much more so than Saki and Shizuno's teams) despite being destined to lose. It's really compelling.

I can't wait to see what the shrine maiden is like after being possessed. With Toyone being such a powerhouse, I'd like to see how the anime portrays Kasumi's "possessed by a goddess" ability in action.

Still don't understand how the game works, but the story of the participants helps make the show interesting.

Would you (or anyone, really) like a simple-as-hell quick explanation? I'm not good at mahjong by any stretch of the imagination, but I've learned enough to be able to play it, so I could sketch out the rules; just none of the strategy.

That would be awesome. When the girls throw out Pan, Kan, Ron, Richi, my head spins.

Sure thing! I should have time to knock it out tomorrow, it won't take long.

I've just gone a little too long without sleep to do it today.

Japanese ('reach') mahjonng is different and weird anyways. I can play Traditional Mah-Jonng sort of (the betting rules get nuts), but this is a bit weird. Americanized mahjonng is different too ><
