    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 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.

  • 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 ...

    Better than Saki!!!!
    The matches in this show are crazy intense! Another plus is the lack of yuri-undertones (which isn't needed in the first place), as compared to the original show.

    Two downside for me:
    --yuri-undertones were greatly reduced, but not completely gone. That erks me.
    --Some characters still don't know how to dress.

    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 >.<

    When Fate Ties Together
    Saki Achiga-hen Episode Side A is about the action of mahjong matches taking place in the nationals with 5 girls in a mahjong club from Achiga Girls School. If you haven't seen Saki, the main series where Saki makes her way in the prefecture course, go see it now. This is what fate looks like, it all ties together.

    Quite a letdown from the original, but still not bad and worth watching.
    I loved the first Saki series. I watched the episodes as they came out; I waited each week for the next episode; and in the end, I found the original 25 episodes to be a satisfying series with well-developed and well-rounded characters, which is what drove the story. Sadly, Saki Episode of Side A skipped character development entirely, and as it is, we get a frustrating and hard to watch series. ...
