Huh, really? Because of her clothing when we saw her silhouette?

As usual I'm more interested in the fourth, not yet mentioned finalist school. Yay for dark horses.

On another thought, how is Saki going to play Teru? Either Teru needs to move to the captain position or Saki needs to move to the vanguard position for them to face each other.

Teru will be probably moving to the captain position. The laws of anime climaxes that every series, save for comedies, should follow dictates so.

So the only Mahjong we got was from the Tsuruga girls. BTW, Mutsuki had quite the nice hand there. If only she got that kind of hands during her round instead of the 2-yaku biggest hand she got

Totally uninteresting and miscellaneous fact: the url in the explorer says \\Tsuruga01\Club\Mahjong\System using the Yen as the backslash.

The episode didn't really disappoint me. I expected a bad one but instead its quite good for me. Specially Teru. But its unexpected for her to be a vanguard and also the main enemy has been shown. I wonder if it will be the same for the manga.

They spend a lot of time animating hair movement in this episode, especially weird since everything else look about the same.

Teru & Saki have the same red eyes... I knew those red eyes would come back to haunt me with the creepy & Emo face lol.

So where's the 3rd monster?

I doubt the series will continue onto a international tounament so I"m guessing Either Saki will face Teru in either the Semi-finals or the Finals depending when Saki faces the 3rd Monster.

Or Saki could face 2 Monsters simutaneously... that makes a total of 3 monsters.... I'd feel sorry for the 4th player... unless it's another "Saki" like an unknown monster, then it'd be the battle of the monsters each having their own awesome move.

I'd hate to face a player who could consistently get Heavenly Hand though, that like mega cheating....

Shouldn't that be "Way to go, Momo"?

Also, thumbs up to Teru's depressssssssssing school. That looks like it has the potential for epic.

It's Yumi's idea not to let Kaori play.

It's something related to how Japanese characters are encoded in computers, especially (old version of) Windows. If you have Japanese version of Windows 98 or change your system encoding to Japanese (look around in Control Panel > Regional Settings), you get Yen sign when you type backslash. It's a buglegacy thing that shouldn't be bugging the users.

Anyway, about Teru and her time-bomb looks...
Spoiler for shounen series Teru:


Yeah...

I guess you are posting this as a ghost or a zombie, then. *Gets shotgun and sets up a spirit barrier.*

I was kinda wondering how this episode would turn out since anime with Gonzo involvement tend to have the females become more endowed when wearing swimsuits, with the exceptions of the flat-chested girls who seem to have their tops practically falling off due to buying suits seemingly one size or two too big. I was not disappointed (or was I? I'm confused about this...) in that my expectations were met on the animation portion.

Story-wise, the episode was a bit better than a filler pool episode typically is.

Winter (blazer) and Summer (current) uniforms? That's all I can come up with. /shrug

It was more a reference to Yumi and Momo sitting on the roof holding hands.

Ah, I figured out what was bugging me about Teru.

Teru looks like Tama from Bamboo Blade a little bit... only mopey. Just hope she doesn't whack Saki upside the head or something.

Ep 24 Finale
<1st Day of Nationals>

Saki> Teru! Big Sis! It's been so long! *runs to hug*
Teru> *SMACK* Don't touch me.
Saki> NOOOOOOOOOO! I will make you love me again by destroying you at mahjong!
Teru> Or you could apologize for seducing our dad with your damn sweaty thighs.

Man, I sure hope none of this turns out to be in the actual show or I'm gonna be in trouble .

Yeah, it would seem as some sort of cheat there. As in, every one is in the final spurt in the final hand, with all the tension up, and someone comes in: earthly hand, lol. gg.
