Nodaka and Saki they are starting on a long lifetime ...

    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

    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.). ...

  • 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! ...

    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 ...

    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, ...

    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 ...

  • Awesome Mahjong Play
    I really enjoyed this series!! Simply because they made the game of Mahjong play so interesting and actually managed to have a good plot to it. Which you the watcher would have to see on your own! No spoilers on my behalf!

    Pretty fun show, despite the ecchi
    Stumbled across this one while looking for yuri series to watch. Nothing much to say about this show. It fulfilled its role as a light fluffy fun show for those evenings where you get home and just don't want to do anything for 30min. The ecchi wasn't excessive, and the likeable characters made the show enjoyable overall.

    I'm not a very experienced mahjong player, and had no clue what ...

    Since 3 years have passed let´s look back to this anime
    Now in 2012 this series is not new anymore. Let's say something about it...

    The plot tells the story of a freshman student, a girl called Saki, of the high school Kiyosumi. She's more or less forced to play mahjong. At the beginning she doesn't like it. In the end she love it and tries to win, with her high school mahjong team's teammates, the girls prefectural tournament. All of them will ...
