    Saki, Episode of Tokis Sickliness.
    I've been eager to write this review for days since the semi finals in the national tournament started; however, I thought i'd wait to cast my final opinion until the end of the series. Alas, my opinion has not changed.

    I was quite puzzled at first to hear of a spin off series, or rather a "side story," to the Saki Manga/Anime. A proper Saki season 2 is fervently desired after all, but to due ...

    Saki Episode of a side A
    For all that have watch Saki before seeing this will be mad that it dont have much focus on the mahjong games, it focuses more on the characters. You will also feel that the story is rushed and that it could be much more episodes. That is true for the first 7 episodes, but i don't know how it will be in the later episodes. But despite this, i will say that it is a good show. I recommend it too all ...

    Great background/side-story
    Honestly, I was kinda surprised they had a "side story" in conjunction with the actual main story because even in the manga, the main story wasn't even close to being done.

    However, I'm glad there is a background story that ties in nicely to the the mysterious Nodoka because it really lends to see how each character grew up. Also gives us a nice idea of what the other teams the Kiyosumi team ...

  • Saki Episode of Side A
    This show really got me interested in Mahjong. I've always thought of it as a solitaire game. I had no idea it could be a competitive game.

    The show it's self is sweet. It's about growing friendships as well as self growth. The Mahjong competitions can be crazy intense. Almost comical at times. Worth the watch.

    Saki Episode of Side A
    Let's play Mahjong! Once again another group of moe girls. For Saki fans yay! Everyone! Still remember Kazekoshi and Tsuruga? Well Momo and Yumi will come in. Kanbara too. Mihoko is still super nice. In addition our long awaited champion Miyanaga Teru finally shows up! Saki still gets lost like always. Also other schools with other pro players. It's the nationals. Let's watch Achiga >.<

    Saki side A, is like a fanfiction!
    After watching the first 12 episodes of Saki Side A, my opinion is that this is like watching a Fanfiction, that wants a different ending. What I mean is from the start the goal is for the girls of Achiga to see and win Nodoka back, and has little to do with Saki at all. This is just like a Fanfiction, that a person writes, visualizing themselves as the Hero who comes in and wins it all in the ...

    Disapointing second half
    After they reach the semi-finals things are taking a real downturn. Flashbacks, flashbacks, flashbacks. Players who can not see only one turn ahead, but two! One player that is impossible to beat, no special reasons given, just that she always does it. Two full episodes on one single game, I'm on the third episode of that game now. This is getting to the point where you fast forward to skip the ...
