    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, ...

    Riichi for it, it's chow time. Moe mahjong please.
    I was a fan of mahjong before, played it a few times so naturally I was drawn to Saki. Knowing that it was a Gonzo title, I expected a fair amount of CG use. I didn't know much about the title itself other than it was a mahjong based series and that it focused around a mahjong club. The experience was enjoyable and I found myself looking forward to next weeks episodes at times. There were ...

  • Highly unexpected, yet intriguing storyline!
    I found writing this review to be quite interesting. I am the type who rather stays away from the shoujo-ai and ecchi genre, but the mahjong just got me completely addicted to this story!

    Storyline:
    The storyline is what gets you addicted to this story! I have never thought something I had initially believed to be so boring could turn a 180° turn into something so exciting! ...

    Just What I Wanted (had it not been yuri and echii)
    OVERALL:
    When I first read the synopsis I was actually really excited to start seeing this. It's been on my watchlist since it first came out. My one apprehension came from the drawing style. Whenever you see cute girls with shiny red cheeks you know it's gonna be echii. What's worse is that's it's Yuri (a personal turnoff. I am entitled to this opinion. please don't call me a homophobe.). ...

  • A review about Saki!
    At the begining of the series, I thought this was just gonna be another fanservice show, with zooms on all the girls crotches in super super short skirts, and camera shots of how rediculously big nodoka-san's boobs were, but after they entered the mahjong touramnet, many of the fanservice went away (or at least quieted down), and the mahjong battles themselves were very intense and I found myself ...

    A great show that'll have you begging for more! (I know I am!)
    Obviously this show is based around a Mahjong club trying to win the national tournament in the long-run. A driving storyline with all very unique characters and an incredible storyline to go with it! If this show was a drug, it would be crack because i always want more this series :3

    High School Girls & a Mahjong set
    This anime, to be honest, wasn't all that appealing to me in the beginning. However, after each episode i found myself becoming interested. Not of the game, but with the characters. As the series progressed more and more new characters were being introduced. with that many diverse individuals. It's hard NOT to want to know more. Despite the series complex characters. it managed to tie all ...

    As an anime fan, as well as a mahjonng player.
    I do not know about any originals prior to this anime. I've only watched a few MADs on nicovideo. However, I have a fairly good Japanese mahjonng history. I watched this anime without subtitles, all 25 episodes in one go. I watched CLANNAD After Story a few weeks before this.

    I guess this wasn't exactly the best first anime to be put on my finished watchlist.
    I'm terribly surprised at how ...

    Saki- one of the best anime I've watch
    I find this anime quite cute with the variety of characters. Each of them have a differnt personality and playing style. Although, sometimes I don't know what is going on with the game. Its a all around good anime with drama, action.
