The blog has a sketch of Nodocchi's penguin. Some known sketches and a few interior backgrounds were also posted in the last weeks.

I'm kinda worry about this anime, because you know, after 1 week I only managed to grasp the basic of Mahjong. That shows how complex this game is, and to make it into an anime, where people can't have time to think when watching, I don't have much hope in the popularity of this show. Not to mention....subbing problem .

Still, I'll follow this one. The seiyuu cast looks promising.

Heh. I'm sure there're people sufficiently-into mahjong. The scanlations I saw were quite competently-done. So it's possible! Just have hope.

Besides, it's just like anime to make something that seems ._. complex become interesting and fun...I personally liked Hikaru no Go, but I still have no idea how to play. Doesn't mean I don't enjoy watching how they play, though! XD

The scan only goes up to volume 2 (and it's long ago). I've tried to read the raw with my limited knowledge on Japanese Mahjong and some tutorial, but it's kinda hard to understand, although the manga doesn't trying to go in deeply about Mahjong.

Still, the moe part can draw a lot of people in, I guess. This is the case where I can say "death by moe". Beside, with all those over the top scenes, I guess I can't complain about not understanding the game .

Haha, yeah, I'm actually kinda looking forward to that. Saki is a bit different from all those bubbling-over-with-cuteness main characters, which was one of the reasons I liked the manga in the first place..

From what little I know about mahjong, the 'normal' ways of winning aren't all that complicated -- just collecting sets + a pair. It's the scoring when I was learning it that made me go okaaay, I think I'll just play an abbreviated version. XD

Three months isn't that long ago! XD Maybe/probably because I read it all at one go some time in Jan..maybe..

Holy crap, just 3 months ago? O_o
I feel like I read them all for a long long time.

Only winning doesn't interest me much, because I have played Mahjong before and only care about how to win (*cough* H game *cough*). Until I read Saki, and the scoring system kinda spark an interest in me, I started to seriously learn Mahjong. I keep on miscalculate the score when playing Mahjong on PC, though XD. And when the strategy involve with the scoring, my head is spinning.

I guess the anime will only cover up to the current tournament (not like the manga has finished that tournament, though ).

Koromo is awesome. The cute girl that can kill people with her glance.

Here is an article from the Tokyo Anime Fair 2009 with some pictures of Gonzo's stand and of a leaflet. Apparently there will be a new Mahjong-based arcade game with a Saki theme.
(Gonzo's TAF page: http://www.gonzo.co.jp/taf2009/)

Also, on March 25 volume 5 of the manga will be released (see the manga HP).

Saki has been picked up for Crunchyroll streaming. Being that it is Gonzo, it might be available on Youtube too like their other projects.

A trip to Lantis' website confirms that the ED is "Netsuretsu Kangei Wonderland", sung by the main seiyuu cast: Ueda, Koshimizu, Kugimiya, Shiraishi and Itou.

Great, I've been thinking for a while that CrunchyRoll needs more moe titles to broaden it's appeal (after the pleasant surprise of seeing Strike Witches in English legally).

Kyou....something, if my mind serves me right. What a shame, to think Jun Fukuyama voices him .

And 90% of the girls are likable.
Hopefully this will draw people's interest in Mahjong, just like how Hikaru no Go has done.
