    An anime of surprises?
    Before I begin, I should probably say this: After a little bit of contemplation, I believe that this anime is shoujo-ai (ie: mild yuri). For those homophobics, this is not the show for you. Nevertheless, if you are on the fence about watching this anime and don't mind watching girls blush when they're together, I would recommend you give it a go.

    In a nutshell: this series is about a group of ...

    Saki: A Very Good Anime
    I find this anime quite cute with the variety of characters. Each of them have a differnt personality and playing style, making this game of Mah Jong intresting.Although I sometimes don't know whats going on with the game. Its a all around good anime with drama, action, and a bit of magic thrown in.

    Good even years later. Must watch!
    This anime has always been one of my favorites and have watched it a few times now. This was one of the first anime I've ever seen and have been hooked ever since. Even though it takes the studio a long time to animate the manga, it is all completely worth it and am always wanting more. Highly recommended. Mahjong itself is a game that this anime never fails to hype up. I perceive it as incredibly ...

    From the very first episode, I'm always sucked into the fun and excitement!
    This review is only for the first season of Saki. I've come back to this series numerous times already and it's been way too long since I last watched it. I remember about 2-3 years back when Saki was first being uploaded to CR and they were doing some promo thing where you watch an episode and collect mahjong tiles. I didn't watch anime as much at that time anymore but this anime really sucked me ...

    Saki = Blew My Mind!
    Even though I'm still learning the basics of mahjong, Saki manages to help me out and amaze me at the same time. Apparently, I don't have godly powers and I'm not "loved by the tiles", but hey, that's what makes this show very entertaining! I really like how they switch the POV to Saki's opponents so you understand their stories and end up liking every one of her and her team's opponents, despite ...

    MAJONG !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    this is a good anime i got the message of friendship and trails. in this snaro majong is the cause of family troubles for Saki but she quickly makes friends when she joined the majong club at her high school. you see the relationship between Saki, Nodoka, Yukki, and the rest of the team and how these underdogs make miracles happen. as the story grows you learn about other characters and a little ...

    No Chihaya but decent enough
    I came to this anime looking for something like Chihayafuru. It's been very interesting to learn about mahjong and the show was interesting enough in its way... but it felt like fan service the whole time. Someone is sad? A shot of their trembling thighs! Someone is happy? A shot of their trembling thighs! And poor Nadoka really didn't need to have such a large bust - in fact, the first two times ...

    Hmm. Saki.... is.... unique.
    Yes. Read the manga. Or you can spend forever waiting for a second season.
    (Saki isn't very popular back in Japan, so there is the chance of you waiting forever.)

    Anyway. Saki is one of my favorite animes. Namely because it's unique in its content. Not many animes/mangas are about mahjong, you know.
    But besides the fact that I can now play Japanese mahjong because of ...

    This was OK, but not great.
    This anime wasn't all that great, in my opinion.

    In most animes where the goal is "aim for nationals", the main character at least has some skill, and tries to improve it. In Eyeshield 21, for example, Sena has good running speed and works to develop it. In The Prince of Tennis, all the characters are constantly getting better moves even though they already HAVE special moves. In Slam Dunk, ...
