Frankly they didn't make it clear.
It's probably the second one. If you look at the table, the order is Yuuki, Mako, Saki, then Nodoka. An entire cycle was played before Nodoka discarded the red 5.

Ah! Okay... Then that's what they meant by the "yamagoshi" red five (which was translated as "passed over red five" which I think is still close enough)... I guess a better phrase would have been "around the bend" or something.

@the subites:

I found it annoying that whoever subbed Crunchyroll's version decided to mix English terms with Japanese (using "All simples Mixed Triple Chow pinfu")


At around 6 minutes there also seems to be either

A: A translation error
B: A place that needs a note if they're aiming at people who have never played before

Saki's hand was NOT "mixed triple chow".

This kind of reminded me of yu-gi-oh. For instance, that mahjong slow motion lightning descent could be compared to slamming a card down (Which apparently takes 10 seconds for maximum holy crap effect.) and snickering afterwards. Both series take some kind of game and make it into some epic battle srzbzn with over the top visuals, sound and WHAT?!?!?! scenes. They even explain afterwards (or in this case before) what said main character did in strategy/tactics and how much in the realm of impossibility it is to pull something like that off. (Drawing the perfect card or in this case the right tile.) Saw some mahjong summoning creatures in the ED, too.

By the way, they're white.

Saki's hand was NOT "mixed triple chow".
There was a translation note defining "mixed triple chow" at 6:15
that says "3 identical chows in 3 different suit.
Saki has the 2,3,4 of each suit.

Then again at 7:42 when the president says "All simples Mixed Triple Chow pinfu"
saki has the 6,7,8 of each suit. And there's no note for mixed triple chow because it was already defined.

I don't see any error in the subs.

Saki's hand was 22234s234m23456p ron 1p. This is not sanshoku/Mixed Triple Chow.

The line actually seems to have gotten goofed. He says "What are you doing throwing away your Mixed Triple Chow" (since she didn't Ron on the 7-dots/7-pin) (三色捨ててそれってどうなん!!)

I really need to learn how to play Mahjong.

Nevertheless, although I don't really get the mechanics of what was happening in the games, quite a fun first episode!

Mahjong's pretty fun to play, imo. Then again, I was exposed to it (albeit Hong Kong Mahjong) at a young age.

If anyone is itching to play Japanese Mahjong online, and knows a bit of Japanese, I highly recommend Tenhou. You can play against three other people (or two, if you play the three-player game) or you can spectate other matches. There is no chombo and likewise there is no open riichi (it's like a riichi except you deliberately show your hand to everyone...iinm it is worth an additional han). But it is pretty fun (when you are winning of course).

This link explains in good detail how to sign up for a Tenhou account and how to navigate the website.

Actually, I find it will be easier for me if the sub keeps the Japanese term, thus I have been playing Japanese Mahjong up until now.

Gonzo isn't in charge of Saki. TV Tokyo is. Gonzo stopped doing youtube this season.

All of the series that Gonzo streamed between the two Druagas (Druaga x2, Strike Witches, Blassreiter, Linebarrels) were put on Youtube simultaneously or the day after.

I liked the mahjong theme. Always thought that mahjong is pretty interesting. The problem is i suck at it. I can't remember the more complex winning combinations as well as scoring calculations.

In the case of this particular show the chinese subs are probably the most appropriate and easiest to read. Since all the mahjong terms are originally chinese anyway (well, almost all of them).

Stupid Gonzo keeps putting "yuri undertones" everywhere. That destroyed half the enjoyment I had from the manga.

Like you can't see it in the manga.
