  • 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 ...

  • MAJOR LOVE FOR A GAME THAT I DO NOT UNDERSTAND ONE LICK!
    SAKI is an anime that thoroughly delves into the challenging game world of mahjong, a game with so many technical rules and full to the brim with complicated strategies it makes one wonder how a human brain can cram all the niceties, stratagems, and skills in to be able to become a national pro at this game! Usually a theme for an anime such as this would bury itself in a deep pile of boring since ...

  • Review of anime and manga!
    Well i watch this a few times took me awhile to realize they don't wear underclothing not even bra's which is odd, but either way the anime dose a good job not showing to much every now and then you can catch something, but mostly not. Anyways the show is good although I wish they would show a more powered up Saki i mean she just looks normal for the most part but i guess it depends who is looking ...

    It gets weird quick, and not the good kind of weird. Go watch Akagi instead.
    At face value, this is a generic sports anime. We know them, we love them, with all the cliches and tropes that define the genre. Where it goes off kilter is that most sports anime portray the sports they are based around reasonably well, even while taking liberties for the sake of drama. This one... well.. doesn't.

    It's okay that mah jong is ultimately a game of luck, and it's okay that the ...

  • Girls Mahjong High School Tournament
    I read the manga before Saki was animated, and the story blew my mind. A girl with exceptional mahjong skills, hates the game because of her upbringing. However, Saki decides to join her high school mahjong team and become champion at the national tournament. Its the first Mahjong manga/anime that intentionally didnt focus on game elements like cheating, tobacco use, gambling for life, and girls ...

    It's no Chihayafuru.
    Did a pervert write this? It's written like a kids anime so why all the ass shots and boob nonsense? And, not that I have a problem with lesbians, but the amount of lesbian like behavior and lack of male roles furthers my opinion that this was written by a pervert. Other than that...it was mostly enjoyable, however, I found the introduction of supernatural crap in the second season very annoying ...

    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. The anime that made Mojang more interesting.
    I am not a professional reviewer (i don't know if anyone is) but the reason i sat down and watched Saki was because it was about the game Majong. I thought "There's no way they actually did this," and boy was i wrong. Saki is the story of a Mojang club that shoot for the nationals (the simplest way to put it). If you haven't watched Saki i HIGHLY recommend watching it.

    Mahjong with more focus on characters then Mahjong.
    Every single character in this show has got a personality, even the people doing the announcements in the booth. This is the redeeming feature of this strangely odd anime, Mahjong itself is a great game to play but.. this anime focuses more on the characters and jokes and bits of drama rather then any true focus on Mahjong itself. Then they cover this fact up by sugar-coating the scenes with ...

    The worst enjoyable anime I've ever seen.
    This is my first attempt at writing a review for anime so please take that into consideration. Here are a few of my biases you should know about before reading however: I like original art work. things that stand out. Even being a straight male I find girl love animes annoying and forced. I like Slice of Life, Horror, and occult animes the best. I'm going to Judge this on 3 categories Story, ...
