I think that's rather unlikely, not most because it would piss off the otaku buyers.

Babelfish translation of Amazon.co.jp page:

Quote:
first limited edition bundled benefit contents “you hold, the pillowcase” second feature!! “You we want me!!”Reversible holding pillowcase…Topic tumultuous!? Very popular remain the true holding pillow second feature bundled decision!! The character as expected…It probably is who? Booklet (enclosure benefit) [pikuchiyareberu
Also of note is the fact that it's reversible, while the Vol. 2 body pillow wasn't. So it's more likely to be a single character than a yuri coupling.

Well the middle one is obviously Rie Kugimiya looking plain as ever. I'm going to assume the one on the right is Ami Koshimizu because of the penguin as well.

"I haven't even been able to go to a single ADR session, I feel like I can't go out very much..."
"I saw the subtitles on Crunchyroll and thought 'Whoa! Cool!'"

So anyway, that's pretty cool (even if we don't end up going out for a drink).

Now that I think about it: I wonder how she got around the region locking?
Err....so, she doesn't live near you anymore ?

Hmm... the episode got a little better by the end, but the people making the fillers sure are in a fast forward mode. They are forgetting that part of what makes Mahjong series good is not just people shouting their final moves, but actually seeing the whole mind game in between. The don't have to go through Akagi lenghts of having a single match lasting 5-6 episodes, but this other alternative isn't all that satisfying either. The last match of Saki-Momo-Hisa-Tomoki got a tweeny bit more interesting, but it still suffers from that ff mode.

Hey, using your natural abilities to go off the radar isn't cheating. It's just not covered by the rules. And as long as she stomps Saki with it I'm all for it.

I don't see how you can't class it as cheating.

It's just psychology. Like she said, she declared her riichi 100% properly. It's just her opponents faults they weren't paying attention to her.


This episode did seem a bit weak compared to earlier ones (like the last one). A little bit too much "pans over the scoreboard as announcer boringly repeats obvious stuff about their placement." The first big confrontation with Yuuki was a bit too gimmicky. Well, it may be because I'm starting to play Mahjong seriously, the whole "magical powers" stuff is a bit more off-putting. But there were other non-Mahjong issues...the whole plot point with Saki was resolved too easily. The animation seemed to lack as much flair as previous moments...compare Hisa walking off to her game dramatically here, with Hisa walking off to her game dramatically in episode 9.

It gives a feel of "We're already done with the real arc of the show, so let's just get this done as soon as possible." Well, it has it's good moments too, but I hope next episode will improve. If it has Mihoko being awesome, there's a good chance of improving.

How is it their fault that they can't hear anything?

Well, when it comes to the senses, the human brain takes on a massive input of stimulus every millisecond, and throws away the vast majority of it. Your nerves, on a subconscious level, completely ignore and discard the majority of sensory information before it even reaches your brain. Even if Momoko manipulates that with her Stealth power, her opponents are victims of their own overly-discriminating sensory neurons. So it's not like she's "doing" anything to her opponents. It's their fault...the fault of their subconscious psychology, but still their fault.

That's my interpretation, at least. It's hard to judge anything completely accurately in a TV anime.

Though at the basest level, Momoko's not cheating because if the Judges went through the video records and all, they would find nothing at all to indicate foul play. She doesn't manipulate the tiles or games, just her opponent's minds. Mindfucking your opponent is not considered cheating.
