But I'm very intrigued by Kuro? (is that her, the twintail) being named the most talented player in Achiga-girls..

That would be Ako...Kuro's the long black-haired one, the vanguard who gets all the doras.

It does seem pretty fitting. Ako's the one who was most serious about making the nationals, originally planning to join that other big highschool in Nagano (lol, I forgot the name now...damn). She also seems to have a pretty uptight personality, :P. I think she's pretty interesting.

The character I'm most concerned for at the moment is actually Shizuno. She's like, the main protagonist, but we haven't really seen anything yet to indicate she can play at National level. She doesn't seem to have any outstanding skills in particular and she even dealt into a haneman. I'm really curious how she'll even put up a challenge when she gets to go against Saki.

Achiga right now still feels kinda weak; not even at the level of Kiyosumi at the prefecturals level, where all they had were pretty much Hisa, Nodoka, and Saki. The semi-finals match is already over, but I hope that maybe this Tsuruga training arc will go a bit slower so we can see the Achiga team becoming real badasses.

Even in the anime and manga Sumire is always hanging around Teru

or at least, the only one who dares to GASP talk to her

Thanks Sol.. I always had the idea that Kuro was their best player, since she's the only one shown with an ability at the start of the manga..
Though only Yuu have shown her ability thus far together with Kuro.. Maybe the rest are just talented players but without an ability?

I hope Achiga don't progress though.. It would be an insult to Senriyama and Shiratodai if they did..
Shiratodai is a sure shoe-in for the finals, but it's whether Senriyama or the other school (I highly doubt so) will progress and I for one think it'll be fitting for Senriyama to progress..

Specs girl will be studying all Kiyosumi and Rinkai (I'm putting my bet on Rinkai to progress) players like what she did with Kuro and the others..

It's gonna be a fun fun finals.. And I don't think Momo can teach them much.. She's eventually still a loser to Saki..

I doubt Momo will be teaching them anything, but i feel Yumi can help them like she did with Tsuruga. They weren't the most talented bunch but she helped them get very close to going to the nationals.

I wouldn't say it was nothing. It's the start of a Miyamori flashback. One of the best things about the preliminaries arc was how this series managed to make us care about all those teams and characters; even now, our attachment to Tsuruga and Ryuumonbuchi sticks with us through Achiga. I'd say, development for Miyamori and the other schools is something necessary to bring our interest in them to that same level.

Eisui will probably get another chance in the semi-finals; but I do really like Miyamori, so I'm okay with slowing down a little to flesh them out while we have the chance.

What I am concerned about is how fast Achiga's going. Also, Ritz taking another damn break apparently, lol. But by itself, I think this chapter is fine.

Toyone did reveal another ability/skill. Also, while Kyouko's "change of strategies" did get her knocked on her ass again, I'm still expecting her to put on at least a little bit of a performance in order to back up the faith that Hiroe showed in her. What I'm really looking forward to though, I guess, is seeing just what kind of monster Saki has become. lol, this is practically the first time we've seen her playing since her match in the preliminaries. Saki's behaviour is pretty noticeably different from the time she was playing against Koromo; newb/gimmick stuff like taking her socks off feels like it's long gone. I think this match has been going pretty well.

Anyway, while I was trawling the /a/ archives for Saki discussion a ran across a couple tenhou replays that are absolutely insane, lol. Check these out: the interface is in Japanese but I managed to figure it out just by clicking around; post if you need more detailed instructions.

http://tenhou.net/0/?log=2009100819g...5b23&tw=0&ts=9

Hahaha, people who think that Saki's mahjong matches are bullshit should totally just check these out.

Anything focusing on Miyamori is a good chapter. I love the flashbacks because they make us care about Kiyosumi's opponent. And what the hell did Toyone do? it seems pretty awesome.

Hahaha, people who think that Saki's mahjong matches are bullshit should totally just check these out.
1st one: Daisangen on Rinshan.. That's fucking sick..
Not to mention he only had one 'Qing Fa' at that time.. Sick!!!! Plus that last dora.. -.-'

2nd one: His starting tiles are good enough with good draws so that's less sick than the 1st one imo...

The thing is this chapter sucks.. There's nothing much that get us excited about..
It gives me the feeling that Ritz is not giving a damn to Saki. She seems to be more interested in working on Achiga instead. That is not acceptable!!

Teru is scary.
I feel like poor Kuro is about to get owned.

Also more Mihoko is always good.
