I don't think you can call them "newbie". Shizuno, Ako and Kuro have played mahjong for a long time (2 years+ at least). They have Harue, the ex-inter-high player and Achiga Ace player who have experience in National competition as their teacher and they also have an experience to play with Nodoka, who is currently the Middle-school champion. (in Saki)

From those points, you can expect that their skill in Mahjong will be quite good.

Nanoha itself is a spinoff from the Triangle Hearts series.

Man, she hasn't wear anything besides her jersey. It would be good if she wears childish underwears and a bloomer (not to mention with a sport T-shirt) inside her jersey.

She could join Kyouno Madoka's jersey club for that matter?

I still love Little Nodoka... She's so cute.

Cute as a Kid, Big Boob as Teen... now... what'll she look like as an Adult... hmmm...

*imagines* / drools....



BTW, Nodoka is so awesome, she's the one that inspired everyone around her to play Mahjong...
Even tho Nodoka was never an actual "main character"... she's always the "supporting character"... (except for those flash backs of her winning in tournaments...)

Somehow my interest in the first season waned after a few episodes, and doesn't seem to have revived for this season. But I'll keep watching, in case I begin to care.

I am a huuuge fan of Yuuki Aoi, but this isn't the voice of hers I like. I prefer Mina Tepes, Sunako, Korone, and even Ichigo. However, I can see why so many seiyuu seem to admire her, since she has such an amazing instrument to work with. When she puts force into a line, it is like solid steel, penetrating and impenetrable. Impossible to ignore. And when she does genki, you've really got genki. The strength of her voice, and her determination to inhabit the character, make sure we get the full force of any emotion going.

I though Koshimizu Ami was excellent as Nodoka. And I liked the character, too.

Wow, this makes me want to rewatch Saki again. I remembered that I really enjoyed the first series for reasons unknown. I was just hooked with the adrenaline, and so were my friends, apparently.

So this series is a prequel in sorts? Or is it meant so that we will eventually Nodoka and Saki in the finals match-up?

This episode gives the backstory for why this club wants to go to the Nationals. The rest will occur alongside the first series.

Spoiler for later on, what I think:
It also appears that Nodoka remained stringent against "coincidence". After experiencing the "Occult" mind-set, you'd think she'd be experienced enough to recognize it at the high school level.

Oh well. These kinds of continuities... I'll be looking at very closely with this series.

And Miss "Dora Magnet". Hmm, now you have to wonder: "Where did she go after 'grade school'?"

EDIT: OK. Now that I got to the end. Things are making sense. XD

The second episode is out. And... sigh. I think this is the first time when watching an adaptation that I really, really want them to go off script with the mahjong parts. And so far they have been dissapointhgly loyal to the original material.

Unfortunately, Mahjong part can't make up as easy as original action scenes.

Anyway, in ep2, they change some details from manga (in positive way).Some scene are added in too. That's good enough for now. Animation quality also look better somehow.

- ED follows the same style as original Saki" ED.

Oh....and that ep.3 preview. CAN"T WAIT!!! FOR IT.
