Saki manga
 
Volume 2 front cover:
http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/f...aki02-000a.jpg

Genre: School life, seinen
(some size mentioned Harem and romance, but haven't seen such scenes so far)

Summary: (from MT)
Miyanaga Saki is a high school freshman who doesn’t like mahjong. Ever since she was a child, she would lose her New Year’s gift money during her family mahjong game. If she won, her parents would be upset, and if she lost, well, she lost. As a result, she’s learned to play in such a way that her score always remains plus/minus zero: not good enough to win, but not bad enough to lose. When we meet her, she’s being dragged to her school’s mahjong club by an old friend. How will a girl who hates mahjong, yet has become adept at the game as a result of her upbringing, survive in this environment?



Any1 else reading this? Search the thread but couldn't find any match result, btw. :)
Don't worry, i don't know how to play Mahjong as well. But whatever, it's still enjoyable to read. The art is really good also

I am interested in this one the title character is a decent player not overpowering and her rival is rather silly.`

I love this one. It's pretty much all character driven, though that's not a bad thing.

And yeah, all the mahjong terms are confusing for me too. I think I've given up on bothering to try and understand them at this point.

Also, Tacos.

Can't agree more.
Before Ep 8, we only have a taco lover, a flat chest genius and a penguin-pillow hugger. But it seems the rest of mo stereotyped casts would be appeared soon enough. :heh:

I like penguin girl. Big breasts, likes plushies and cosplay...

Utau 2008-11-19 11:26

is this by any chance the Saki that had a Drama CD released last month?

nadare 2008-11-19 22:28

I cant wait till we are gonna see some yuri skinship between Saki and the penguin girl.

The seinen manga Saki might be getting an anime adaptation:

Nice an anime. So now we have anime and manga of shogi, go, and now mahjong. I wonder if there will ever be a God of Gamblers anime.

Anh_Minh 2008-11-22 19:59

We've had a mahjong anime for a while: Akagi. Which was a lot less cute.

Never saw that one seen some of the previews and wasnt too intrested the artwork anyway.

Spoiler for Ep 10:

KrebMarkt 2008-11-28 14:08

Scanlated up to chap 13 thanks to Null.
Saki as an anime would be great after Shion No Ou.
Saki playing Mah Jong = Shion playing Shogi.

Proto 2008-11-28 19:01

Are the other series similar to this one, Shion no Oh and Hikaru no Go? A lighthearted board game series that doesn't go to to the seriousness of Akagi or Kaiji.

Falkor 2008-12-29 17:38

the 2nd volume has been completely scanlated...

a few comments:

* the last chapters focus for the most part on the taco girl's game.
* gotta love the comment about Nodoka: "she is tricking me with her... "
