    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 ...

    Saki episode of side A

    A bad story that i've continue to watch.
    Saki A.deals with loads of filler that gives sympathy to the opposing force and large amount of long period of special moves that delay as much as possible.

    Everyone has a reason to win, therefore; for some reason the story comes to an halt in order to introduce those unimportant background character. With so much time invested in other background character, the story is should only be 6 or so ...
