Not necessarily the case.

Based on what Ikeda's lines, I think there's no rule saying the 8th hand is a yakuman.

Ikeda was talking about 30 exhaustive draws in a row with her and East being tenpai.

That doesn't count as winning, even though the seats don't rotate.

The exhaustive draw rule is:
1. The players that are not tenpai pay a total of 3000 points to the ones that are.
2. If East is tenpai, then the seat winds don't rotate and the hand is played again.
3. A Bonus counter is added.

In case you are wondering what Kana was talking about in the second to last hand:

Kana is down about 117,000 points, but just winning twice off of koromo is no good since then saki would end up with the most points and win. So first, 32,000 from koromo, then 3*1500 from saki to lower her score 4500 (in an exhaustive draw, 3000 points is paid from the players no-tenpai to the ones that are, so if both Tsuruga and Kana are tenpai, they each get 1500 from the other two players. Tsuruga has to be tenpai or the game would end on an exhaustive draw (if east is tenpai on an exhaustive draw, the seats don't change and the hand is played again)), then another 32,000 (+900 from the bonus counters) from koromo would have the final scores be Koromo: ~86,000, Saki: ~106,000, Tsuruga: ~97,900, Kana: ~108,000, Kana wins}

While going for cheap fast hands is a strat you use when you are East, you do so while you wait till you get a good starting hand so you can try and goa high point hand. I guess she got a high number of terminals in that last round.

Just a question about saki's hand. Is saki's initial hand great? the 12 k points because on what the others are talking about. I don't know if they are being sarcastic on saki or praising her.

I think he meant the state of the hand before she starting kanning like crazy, which was still a pretty decent hand in terms of points, and a freaky hand in terms of its composition

No, her initial hand (the one she was dealt) isn't all that great. She's just lucky as hell. There was rampant speculation that she was going for kokushi musou with that hand. (Turns out it was Yumi who was doing that.)

The 12,000 talk comes from the fact that the way her hand develops, she doesn't have enough points in it to win. So naturally, everyone is confused. They're all wondering, what the hell is she doing, and where is she going to get the other 20,000 points from? Most sane/rational people don't think, "Hey, I'll just draw them from the dead wall with successive kan calls." The odds against that are not good at all.

Probably have a better chance of winning powerball.

well, that aside, the direction the anime is in is not exactly bad.

This episode had a few good points:
1) Sakis burning eye and blowing Koromo away
2) Koromo going batshit insane with her last tile winning again
3) Tomoki
4) Tomoki
5) Tomoki

On the other hand, it had wayyyy too much MAHJONGISFUNRITE blahblah and Saki having that /huge/ smile while tsumo Koromo in the last hand wasnt helpful either.

And here is a bit of Tomoki love for you:

Spoiler for Tomoki <3:


Isnt she adorable

By the way, what the hell was with Tomoki being in a maid costume D:

No, see, this is the mind game. Saki and Koromo are both magical, so they both knew what tile was needed to complete Saki's hand, and who had it. Now, Koromo sensed that Saki's hand wasn't enough to beat her, but she also knew from experience that her instinct wasn't reliable where Saki was concerned. So Saki needed something to convince Koromo to deal the risky tile.

Thus the whole "this is fun". What I wonder now is whether it was meant as a "Give me the tile and I'll be your friend, you poor lonely girl", or "Follow your gut! Protect your pride as a Mahjong monster! Take the completely useless risk."

The way how Saki smiled when she drew the last tile was eerie creepy

She's channeling her inner Teru. I bet Teru smiles too when she's killing winning.

Nothing wrong with a little Sapphic mahjong. All parties involved are certainly comfortable with it.
