Who was impersonating Sadako.

I will take time during the weekend to read it with care since I just skimmed over it the other day.

Oh yes, I forgot about that. That was also brilliant! A pity that was not animated.

The sooner enough chapters are written, the sooner there can be a second season.

Oh sorry.

Forgot to add those.
My de-sarcasmed reply:

The Saki mangaka is infamous for the obscene quantity of breaks she takes. The bottom line is to never actually expect the chapter to be on time, and to just imagine the series runs on an irregular schedule.

Holy crap, scanlations for volume 4 are finally done.

God, everything about this series is such a slow tease, though. If the scanlations actually manage to catch up, that'll be awesome, but that doesn't change the fact that it'll be years until we get enough material for another anime.

It must be both to avoid the "our protagonist are now in another league" syndrome and leaving the previous characaters in the dust, and for the implied team they were building up in previous chapter. In the previous pages Fujita also showed some attention to Yumi and asked a game with her. And if you pay attention to the tiles and score in the table you'll notice Yumi won that game against Fujita, Hisa and Mako.

So maybe those two are in whatever scheme they are planning.

A provincial All-Stars?

I'll pick Mihoko/Yumi/Touka/Koromo/Momo, with Kana as backup.

But Hisa is the awesomest of them all! I'm not happy hearing Yumi beat her (hax Saki or Koromo I guess I can accept, while Nodoka having a reasonable win percentage over her would have to be bearable. Yumi, however, is a 'normal' player just like Hisa, so they should supposedly be at the same level). I'm gonna think of it as a 'just one game' kind of thing.

Anyway, I don't know if I've ever mentioned this before (and if I have then oops--that's kinda embarassing) but does anybody else get a sort of Eyeshield 21 vibe from this manga? Or, since I'm a blatant Hisa fanboy, I'm talking specifically Hisa-Hiruma parallels here. The awesome third-year team captain who is just a normal player but dreams of going to the nationals, and has been trying to make a team at their school their entire high-school life. Both make up for their lack of special abilities through sheer strategy, and a willingness to make a gamble for the win and bet it all. I also have to say they both feature in absolutely awesome romances, though Mihoko and Mamori aren't really alike (their names both start with M though. (HxM)^2, that's kinda a weird coincidence). You can also say that Saki/Sena (whoa what the shit, lol man the manga gods are screwing with me, aren't they) play a similar role for the both of them, as the prodigal but initially reluctant first year who enables them to fulfill their dream. All in all, I think they really are quite similar (and awesome).

Anyone care? Y/N. (lol) :P Oh well, at the very least this post can serve as random plugging for Eyeshield 21.

Well, you said it yourself. Technically they are similarly leveled. During the individuals they had approximately a similar place (Yumi's 6th vs Hisa's 8th IIRC, coupled with Yumi's 3rd and Hisa's 6th in the preliminaries), so they would win an approximately equal number of matches (however its remarkable that she was able to win and impress Fujita pro). Personally I prefer Yumi's style of adaptive play vs Hisa's bluffs, but that's just me.

Maybe it's something like a moment of inspiration for her. Probably like how Koromo's power is at her max during a full moon, only that her blood only boils at rarer moments or something. In any case it's nice to see that the mangaka is not forgetting about all the characters she took the time to build during the regionals, unlike what happens to many other sports series.
