Choe attracts the cardinal wind tiles that correspond with her seat. When Choe was dealer, she picked up tiles that matched her seat (East) AND the round (South) for her aborted sanbaiman hand. That...

Well if "Venter" is the final wind element in the Captain's match, then Rinkai will go through to the finals? Can't say I mind that too much; I'm looking forward to seeing how Satoha will handle Teru...

Sexism is a ridiculous conclusion to draw. For me, the problem was less about Chapter 20 or Shizuno per se, but the pacing and characterisation in Achiga as a whole. If Shizuno got the time spent on...

What's Senriyama got to do with anything? I don't think anyone is seriously claiming they're the protagonists; that was all just joking around. However, they did get a lot of attention that in...

My point is compare the percentage of scenes that feature Saki in the main Saki story, vs percentage of scenes with Shizuno in Achiga. It's objectively true that Shizuno got a lot less scenes devoted...

The only reason they think Hanemura is the Mage of Exodus is because he's the only mage they've found with Exodus powers so far. That doesn't mean he actually *is* the only one though. There might be...

She probably did use Hisa's hell wait in her 3rd hand. (Saki Ch 61, pg 12) She passed up a 3 sided (4, 7, 8 sou) wait for the 3 pin pair wait, when she drew the 6 pin for tenpai. The rest of the...

I don't think this is a a good explanation, when Koromo was so arrogant in the regional finals that she was calling her opponents "peons" to their faces. Regardless, she wasn't handing out wins left,...

I'm amazed Shindouji riichi'd on that last hand. With their score so low, a direct hit yakuman due to a forced discard would put them in immediate danger of being knocked out.
