This episode had so much wacky, bizarre stuff. Like Nodoka said in the pre-opening bump, "These people are way too relaxed." There's a life and death struggle here and the announcers are discussing optimal on-plane sleeping strategies...ww.

Spoiler for ep 18:

I just noticed that Saki and Strike Witches are currently the top two in post count on the first page of the "Licensed" sub-forum. Also, Nodoka and Charlotte Yeager have the same VA (Ami Koshimizu)...which is weird since they both have such very different personas and voice styles. Unified as they may be by huge breasts.

They really packed alot to this episode, more then I expected. And I'm surprised it's still almost 1:1 to manga, I thought they already runned out of source material (at time when this episode was made).
Anyway it looks like next episode will be "last" one.

Oh, young Saki is cute....

Quarkboy: Do you have any idea if baiyakuman are also not counted in the tournament?

Suu an kou tanki = double yakuman

Suu an kou, suu kan tsu = baiyakuman

Well yes, if you watched the previous episode or read the last 2 pages on this thread you know the answer

Heh. So it's not necessarily Koromo's danger sense that's wrong but the fact that Kiyosumi can change her hand from a low point hand to a larger point hand. Now that 2000 point in relation to 24000 makes much more sense.

Fun episode. Looking forward to next week's.

Proto: "Double yakuman" and "Bai yakuman" are different things.

Tenhou has no double yakuman but yakuman still stacks.

Edit: looking at Saki episode 17 incase

Think it only says no double yakuman. Didn't say anything with regard to stacking yakuman.

Sorry, you are right, I guess 4 hours without sleep are not helping. It hasn't been explicitly said, but I'd say the same rationale applies.

BTW, these four at the mahjong table all have weird foibles but what's funnier is the others' - mostly Yumi's - "huh" reaction to all of it.

Kana lets loose a roar (Yumi thinks maybe she's lost it. What? Didn't Kana already lose it when she was splayed across the table at half time?), Saki has to take off her shoes, and Koromo speaks condescendingly to everyone at the table. I'm surprised no one has any reaction - even a either "WTF" or a heated response back - to Koromo calling them peons to their face.

Then again, Fujita-pro is pretty weird too. Her obsession with katsudon, her digression into airplane foot rests...

Is this a case where the more uber you are at mahjong, the weirder you'll probably be?

Given the reaction of Kazekoshi to Kana's "roar," it seems fairly evident that the audience can hear the conversations at the table.

This means that Saki's line about going to nationals and making up with her sister was heard by everyone. I think most people are going to disregard it as a throwaway line or forget it in the aftermath of the excitement over Kiyosumi's 24k win. However, the reporters shouldn't forget, right? That's got to be a huge clue for them.

I'm going to be very disappointed if someone doesn't manage to figure out Saki's family connection without the benefit of Saki just coming right out and telling them.

Anyway, the episode is just 2 chapters behind the manga now, and in the preview you can see scenes from the last pages of the very last chapter that is released. I really hope that the anime makers and the mangaka have been working together and they are just aiming for a simultaneous release for the prefectural tournament ending or something.
