Ah, thanks for that. And interesting. I hadn't gone back to the previous episode to see Toyone's starting hand, and I forgot about the possibility of an itsuu. I also didn't think of the...

Simple answer: Getting +-0 requires that you score between 4600 and 5500 points, and not be in first place.

If you check my post a few pages back (post 935) you'll see Saki's point total for the...

Interesting indeed. I'd forgotten all about that.

It seems pretty likely that Teru would watch Saki's match (even if she made tsundere excuses about it; I don't remember for certain if anything...

I still think Saki was pretty much guaranteed a 1 sou or 4 sou from the dead wall if she took the second kan. She'd then discard the 7 man, and win with tsumo when she got the red 5 man two turns...

Addendum:

Just realized an additional point on Toyone's hand: She discarded a 7sou on the round -just before- the kan. I'm guessing she broke up her 78 set and switched to the 45 set at that...

Ok, lots of little things. Taking notes.



This assertion that I made is wrong. We get to see Saki's full hand before she folds it down, and she could not have won on the second kan draw. The...

There are 3 suits for 4 players. Kasumi's power turns it into 2 suits for 3 players, and 1 suit for 1 player.

There's some random variation based on the dice roll value and calls, but generally...

Actually, wow, yeah. It didn't stand out so much in the regionals, because I don't think any of the teams has coaches (Nagano apparently isn't that great at attracting pros to their schools). In...

While I spoke of that in one of my earlier posts, I'd want add a caveat by noting that just because Saki played the manipulator there doesn't make her a puppetmaster.

Kyouko: "That draw felt good."

Just as she said that, they shift the camera to show Saki over Kyouko's shoulder, and Saki has the 'shrouded face' look going. It seemed a good draw for Kyouko, but...

True. Actually, Saki broke a lot of things this round (aside from the monocle).

1) She set things up so that Kyouko could win with her chi/pon, vs Kasumi.

2) She herself could still win via...

It's not that Saki could have used it, it's that she knew the exact tile that Kyouko needed for a pon, which allowed Kyouko to win against Kasumi. Basically, she set Kyouko up for the win in order...

Might also be related to the animated short film "Despicable Me: Minion Mini Movie – Banana" (can see it on YouTube). Dietrich's face especially reminded me of that.
