Sorry not a manga reader, but just curious
The comparison of mahjong with yu-gi-oh's card game just doesn't seem right. Yu-gi-oh's game were mainly about summoning demons and monsters, whereas Saki is all about playing a tile game. It's totally different!

Truth be told, I really want you to take back your words about Yu-gi-oh, but on second thought, I believe you don't understand how Yu-gi-oh's card game works, so well....

And the comparison is right, because Mahjong depend heavily in luck, and they turn the Yu-gi-oh anime into some friendship bullshit that also depend heavily in luck. I have to wonder....did you ever try playing Mahjong? =/

I didn't notice before, but they've also added a blog to the website.... (for those interested to know)

more character designs are available at the very bottom of the blog... (not sure if they have been posted before)

it seems that Saki is going to start broadcast in Spring 2009.

From the PV this seems more like Mahou shoujo then Mah Jong, then again I'm not complaining.

the blog made quite a few updates and from what I could understand...

* they went to eat tacos, lol...
* they went "location hunting" and "location scouting"
* they posted an interesting image in the latest entry.



is this the same mahjong clubroom from the manga? I mean, the clubroom looks surprisingly good...

can we really expect good quality artwork for the anime?... I also find interesting the idea that they are planning to use actual locations for the adaptation (the ones the manga is based on)...

hmmm... I get the feeling they are pouring a lot more effort than "usual."

On another note, I have been listening the Drama CD of Saki (yeah, there's a Drama CD), and if my ears serve me well, the seiyuus featured are the same people cast for this anime adaptation. It's actually a good preview of what you should expect for the voice acting and overall feel of Saki. And to my surprise, I've come to enjoy it a lot more than I originally thought, especially with regards to the sound direction, which I hope remains as good as the Drama CD.

Spoiler for bonus image XD:

Taco, haha. ^^ I didn't really like the header pic on the site (too used to the manga), but the character designs look good so far. Will definitely be keeping an eye on this one, since I adored the manga, despite always being ambivalent about mahjong.

thanks for posting...

the blog made a few updates with the same character designs (seems they have been playing mahjong to get a hang of it )

I wonder when they are planning to post the trailer from comiket (that bootleg thing on youtube is not enough ).

A PV has just been added to Saki's official site. Its in the format of flv, surprisingly. One of the best formats that saves bandwidth while maintaining its quality.

Thanks for notifying. It looks nice. However this weird music doesn't fit the video.
But Epic Mahjong

I didn't thought Saki would turn out to be something like that. I thought it was about a group of junior high students playing mahjong together or something like that, but...

It appears as though the mahjong table incorporates advanced technology that enable battles in another dimension while seated. It sounds strange and the music is more weird..

The mangaka uses these mahou shoujo-like scenes to illustrate the matches from time to time, the table is just an ordinary table ^^;
