    I've never seen Saki in manga or anime form. It looks like one of those more plot-dependent manga adaptations that end on a note where you are begging for more and have to wait several years for a sequel (like Haruhi, unfortunately). Plus, mahjong doesn't interest me that much. I am, however, very aware of Saki's notorious upskirt shots that always avoid showing any panties, to the point where the fandom mostly agrees that all of the girls are going commando. Oh, and some of the characters are quite cute, but that's expected with such a large cast. It's not something I've completely written off in terms of interest, it's just on the back burner.

    So thanks for the invitation, but I'll have to decline because I know nothing about Saki.

    When it comes to anime, I prefer to go for complete stories, original anime, or adaptations of anything with a thin plot (like K-On). Generally, a big warning sign for me is when fans of an anime are clamoring "SECOND/THIRD SEASON WHEN???? I WANT MOAR X!" And that's exactly what I've seen with Saki. I try to avoid becoming one of those people, but sometimes unsuccessfully, like with Haruhi, Kamisama Dolls, and Natsume Yuujinchou (although that one isn't in shortage of episodes quite yet).

    I never was fond of the creepy Sayaka avatar, frankly. Too... creepy? But not much else. You have a flashy, pretty new one now, and I'm almost completely sure that it's from Aquarion EVOL despite not having started that yet.

    On another note, since I noticed you also enjoyed it, I just finished Another. Man, that was one hell of a fun ride, especially near the end! Best anime from PA Works yet.

    My girlfriend - by far the bigger Saki fan among us - has been trying to deter me joining on the grounds that all versions of Nodoka are good.

    On the flip side, I have some really good twintails Nodoka cosplay links... hmmm.

    Mahjong isn't hard to get a grip on. Just get someone that's good at explaining it to show you how to play. Me and one of my friends showed another friend how to play last weekend and he won the 3rd hand without any help.

    And I'll make a rant in that suffering thread later. Seeing it at 2am on Friday and work after I wake up is not a good time for rant mode.

    Your post in the "suffering" thread made me think this Okada quote from last ober that you might find of interest

    Quote:
    I like miserable characters who seek something but cannot obtain it.
    Zessica is a great example of course but Oscar in lupin III also qualifies as well as the 75th generation of akb0048,Strength in BRS,nearly the whole cast of Ano Hana

    I hope that's just a phase she's going through.

    Likewise. I don't always agree with you (and I'm sorry about the Guilty Crown thing), but I do like your thoughts on things.

    Mahjong is really a complex and tricky game. I found it to be a fun and frustrating game if you can't calculate points and understand how moves work. There's a funny story of my first mahjong debut, but I'll tell you that story some other time. I can tell you this: I thought that kongs were the best move in the game and it's so hilarious that I played mahjong around the same time Saki first aired.

    I play chess, but don't know people in my area who play it. I'm really good at it and I taught it to a few people in the past. I started playing it around middle school and played it as a past time during high school, never joined the club because I wanted to focus on homework and writing.

    Oh, I thought I was supporting short skirts. But Saki is fine too.

    Well, I really like Yuri and Saki...to tell you the truth I've had my doubts at first but after watching it, the series grew on me!, I tried mahjong myself and there was so much rules and regulations you had to follow. I literally thought that it was a orthodox version of chess (which I play), but it was fun learning it. I still can't play mahjong but I enjoy learning and attempting to play it.

    You don't have to give me cheap unnecessary sympathy you know. Are you sure you're saying those things to me to make me feel better about myself...because if you are...IT'S NOT WORKING!!!!

    Sure why not. My favourite pairing is Saki and Nodoka they look really cute together and they make a scary mahjong pair. There are a few others, but the main two just click with me.

    Sorry for bothering you and taking up your time. Please focus on other things besides my well being. You have better things to do, right?
