Saki and Saki Episode of Side-A

Post by SulliMike23 on Wed Apr 11, 2012 6:35 pm

High school girls with big boobs, yuri, and lots and lots of Mahjong! I fell in love with this series a year ago and I still read the manga and I watch episodes of it on Crunchyroll too. But recently a new anime based on the side story manga has premiered and it's looking pretty good so far. We actually learn a little about Nodoka (one of the main girls) and where she went to school before the main series.

Plus I can say that this series was what got me playing mahjong online and on my iPhone. I'm addicted to it!

YES!!

Been waitin' for someone to make this board! One of my favorite yuri animes! I've re-watched this series three times so far. =D I don't understand mahjong, but after I showed this anime to my friend, you can bet we sure as hell tried to learn richii (Japanese) mahjong! XD

My only disappointment with the whole series is their constant need to make a joke about Nodoka's chest. Really, guys? Maybe it was funny the first three times, but after that it was just plain annoying. (Then again this is my only gripe with the whole series.) They made four jokes about it in the first episode of Achiga-hen alone. Four. -sighs-

Favorite characters of the first season are the President (Hisa) and heterochromatic eyes girl (Mihoko). Ironically, my favorite pairing is HisaxMihoko (shoo, neko girl! >3>/)
For the new series, I don't really have any pairings in mind. I suppose Shizuno and Ako, but I'll have to see more interaction with them in the anime. As for my favorite characters from Achiga-hen: definitely the Matsumi sisters! (I read the manga.) Yuu hasn't been introduced yet in the anime, but she's adorable in the manga! <333 Kuro is just awesome! =D

I followed this anime a while ago when it came out. And I follow the manga on and off, but I definitely liked it enough to obtain a copy.

I'll have to check out this new "Side A" series coming out.

I totally agree with HisaxMihoko. They are sweet together. :F

!! How did I not see this thread updated?! I'm sorry, Mike! I'll post some more of my thoughts after the next episode tomorrow or the next day. I made a huge post about this series on another board, but I'll spare you all, seeing as how it's almost repeating what I said here already, with a few extra things added.

Spoiler:
My friend and I joked that "badass Saki" was just lost on her way to the bathroom! And what do you know? In reality, she was just trying to find the laundry room! XD

Just wanna say that the match with Yuu is the one I've been waiting for! Yuu is my favorite character this series and seeing her uber cute, badass "I'm going to hurt you for making my sister cry" face in the previews makes me with it was already Monday. XD

@ Ooka: It's currently airing in Japan every Monday. This coming up Monday will be episode 6. The series doesn't really take off until episode 4 though. You have to make it through a lot of flashbacks and sped-up scenes to get to the nationals so Achiga is with Kiyosumi. x_X

... I just noticed I seem to like the charismatic redheads of series. Razz But I can't help but ship these two, their back-story is adorable. <3

Sakiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii *squeels* I mean-
: D

I began rewatching Saki, because of the side A-series, I couldn't get enough. Always this one-week-waiting *pouts*
What I notice is, that they say in the actual anime that Nodoka always played Mahjong alone on her computer before middle-school (in middle-school with some girls, who aren't the ones of the A-series), so I was wondering if anyone can remember / knows what the manga says, since I don't read it ö.ö

What I really love about this series are all the characters you can fall in love with :3 They are just all so loveable X3
From the A-series I really like the sisters too (: Yuu though! But I like the girl who is sickish (what's her name??) and the one who takes care of her (and what's her name?? ô.o) too >_< What am I saying?? They are all awesome *giggles*

My absolute favourite character is probably Koromo. Just look at her, she is so cute >___<

And so evil while playing, Mwahahahahahahhaha :^)

Hisa though. There are some really good Hisa & Mihoko Doujins out there ö.ö Go, read them! XD
Momoko~su and Yumi are amazing too, duh.
And I totally ship Yuki with tacos!!!!

Koromo is cute ain't she? But she is frickin' scary when she plays mahjong! As for pairings...I like a few of them.

I'm a firm Saki/Nodoka shipper, I do ship Mihoko and Hisa, and of course I can't forget Yumi and Momoko~su! But I also ship Touka and Hajime~Desu wa!

As for Yuuki, I think she'd be in heaven at Taco Bell.

Are you asking for the school she plays with? o.o

After doing some cross-referencing, I've happen to find the names of those characters! @-@ They're definitely the biggest yuri fanservice couple of this season. XD
Sickly girl: Toki Onjōji
Girl who looks after her: Ryuuka Shimizudani
Their school: Senriyama

She and her cousin's true ability at playing are crazy strong. o-o I actually thought Saki might end up losing during my first go-through of the anime. XD

Mike: I keep forgetting Hajime and Touka, but I agree they are cute together. ^^ Just don't let the maid see them! XD (Their butler is awesome. ^^)

Kino karutta-chan wrote:Hisa though. There are some really good Hisa & Mihoko Doujins out there ö.ö Go, read them! XD

There's doujins of them?!? O_O -runs off to search- I'm just wondering if Hisa and Mohiko are going to have any interaction at the nationals! >w< I hope so!

My friend's favorite couple is Momoko/Yumi. I'm not that big on them (like I am Hisa/Mihoko and Nodoka/Saki) but I still ship them. People look to be shipping Shizuno/Ako for this season. As for Arata... I just don't like her character. Too ":l" o-o

Fun fact: Harue (the coach) has the same voice actress as Shizuru from Mai Hime! XD They don't sound anything alike.

That is so wonderful about Koromo, she is super cute (super kawaii desu O__O) but on the other hand evil : D

But of course we have to ship Haramura-san and Miyanaga-san! Could they please stop calling each other by their last names now?? XDD
Right, Touka and Hajime X3

.........what I meant was (I kinda ended up reading most of the manga, so I figured it out : D); Remember Nodoka in middle school?? After she changed schools after elementary school (see Side A) she played Mahjong only online for a while until she met Yuki and then joined the club with some others (there is this girl who copies playing-styles, whatever her name is). I thought the beginning of Side A happened in middle school, that's why I was confused because I remembered those other girls from middle school ö.ö But yeah. Everything's good : D

PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF.
It's incredible how different characters with the same voice actress can sound ö.ö Good voice actress is good, I guess.

Did you noticed; remember that Saki wants to play against her sister Teru at Nationals?? I don't know how this can happen, since Teru plays as the first player and Saki as the last :^)

Oh, and I wanted to know, how many schools from, say the, Kiyosumi-Eisui All-Girls School-Miyamori Girl's High-Himematsu High-table are in / are getting into the semi-finals; do you know that?? :0

I'm steadily following the A-series at the moment and I love how they include characters from the original cast.

There's actually a few chapters up of Saki Side A on mangafox, so I went and read them. If the anime follows that exactly, then I just spoiled myself. XD

They do! In the last bit of the last episode, they agree to stop calling each other by their last names at the shrine!! <333 (I might have recently rewatched the whole series... I can't help it! It's my favorite yuri anime!!)

Also, thanks to the Saki Picture Dramas, I ship Kana/Maharu! I can't remember which one it is, but it shows how Kana helped Miharu get to the point where she is now. X3

I found and saved quite a few doujin! The pairing, and Yumi/Momo are popular it seems! I'm just sad I didn't find that many Saki/Nodoka doujin. =/

I'm thinking it'll probably have in the Individuals. Can't have the big confrontation until the end, yeah? =P

Eight, I believe; four schools at each of the two tables. Then two schools from each table will proceed into the finals. =)

-also reading the manga-

The manga isn't that much farther. In fact, if going what some sites are saying is true, this series thought have 12 episodes (number nine is coming out in a few days) so I'm thinking the anime will surpass the manga. Maybe the manga will go more in depth or something.

wetochan wrote:you have your own version of mahjong isn't?

There's the original Chinese version, a Japanese "Riichi" version, which is the type played in the Saki series, and then there's three-person mahjong. Those are all the types that I'm aware of. XD;;

I wanna learn riichi mahjong! ;_;

--

Sorry everyone. I'm and DEEPLY in the Saki fandom atm so I talk about it any chance I get. I even got one of my friends to watch Saki and introduced her to Hisa's swag. That woman's got two modes: swag off, and swag on. 8)
