episode 12 was amazing. Love the backstory of the characters and their playing habits. Toki has become my favourite character this season.

Still no word on who voiced Atago Masae? I can't really check the Japanese wiki right now, and my office's browser doesn't have any Japanese or Chinese language support, so any entry will just show up as boxes. ^^;

Masae was voiced by Aya Hisakawa. Sailor Mercury, Yoriko Yasaka, Cure Moonlight, etc.

I'm going to try to make one slight change to my Miyanaga Sisters Estrangement Theory (as posted here) to account for the key flaw I've seen brought up against it - The flaw being that Saki talked about how her family also got upset when she won.

To fully explain this alternation, I think it might be helpful to draw a comparison between the Miyanga Sisters and the Williams Sisters of real life Pro Tennis.

The Williams Sisters were completely dominant in women's pro tennis for about a decade. Over that decade, though, there was much controversy surrounding them due to how their father (and coach) managed them. Basically, there was widespread speculation that Richard Williams was fixing at least some of the matches between his two daughters - There was a sense that he felt that one tournament was "Venus' time to shine" and another tournament was "Serena's time to shine". Now, this was never proven, of course, but suspicions were there.

Now, what if the father of the Miyanaga sisters was like that? What if he felt that Teru should get to be dominant first since she's the older sister? So he privately got upset with Saki when she defeated Teru a couple times. So Saki decided to use the plus/minus zero approach to ensure that Teru didn't lose to her. While this pleased Saki's father, it enraged her mother, and Teru also took great offense at Saki throwing matches like this. This ultimately tore the family in half.

Saki's father eventually goes on to regret his complaints to Saki, but he thinks it's too late to fix things. He goes on to feel bitterness towards mahjong because of it. Teru might not have known that her father encouraged Saki to throw matches, and so all of her anger is understandably focused on Saki. Saki cares for her father, so she doesn't want to blame him for this, so Teru is never told the truth about it.


My theory might not need this alteration, but I think I'll throw it out there just to answer the "They also didn't want Saki to win, though" hole in my theory.

An interesting theory there and if I am allowed to extrapolate it to another sport then we had a good example of a cycling 'lead out' train going on with Onjouji Toki being the lead out rider, Hanada Kirame being the 'pilot fish' (keeping the girls out of serious troubled waters and driving the train so to speak) and Matsumi Kuro slotting into the ''Mark Cavendish" role at the end.

What's going on in Teru's head in the final few minutes of the Vanguard match. How's THAT for a reversal of perspective:

Spoiler for Spoilered for size:


Maybe Sumeragi can translate this one? I can get the general gist of things, but some of the kanji lost me.

She saw some strange things too...
1. Toki feels like dying.(FREAKING TRUE! )
2. No idea.
3. Something bout the Dora.

Thats exactly whats going on... Teru thinks the points diff is very far so she riichi. And hoping no one kills off her 1 shot.(Which, Kirame killed the 1 shot..., dat Toki grin!)

She also noticed that Toki and Kirame are cooperating.(In co-op modes, you usually team up to play against the boss of that mission. In this case, it is single match, so it is like. Myssa + me + Triple-R vs Kyuu.)

She said she won't lose to such cooperation(She is the boss of that mission after all.. the other 3 are players...), until Kuro riichi, which caught her totally off guard, since she riichi there is no way to change her hand. Throw the winning tile, and Critical Hit on Teru(Baiman).

Question have you guys seen teruís face when she deny saki being her sister? I mean saw her eyes when she actually said it?

I know that it was because she was lying or she doesnít want to bring it up and talk about it thatís why it turns out like that (darken face) but I have this suspicion like thereís something deeper reason why sheís distancing herself to saki and itís not just because sheís mad at her.

So this is my own theory about the sister (pardon my grammar >< )

Spoiler for Teru and Saki:

Is that fan-made, or from the actual Saki manga? I'm pretty sure it's fan-made, but I'm asking just to be sure.

fanmade

Teru actually looks even more scary in the manga than the anime

The 12 TV episodes will ship on the first six volumes, and then there should be probably two additional volumes for the last 3 episodes. But the episodes will probably be shown online before the Blu-Rays/DVDs ship, though timing is TBD.

Triple_R+: It's just a funny strip I found in Pixiv I wanted to share. It's kind of obvious that it's fan made, since Teru has absolutely no idea what's going on (wherease we know from the show that she's at least clued in to the quirks of her opponents, since she's tailoring her strategy to them).

You're right, but I made my reply to you before I read the various translations for it on this thread, so I wasn't sure what Teru was saying/thinking in it. So the only reason why I was pretty sure it was fan-made was the art quality - Which while fine for a fan-work, would be a bit low-quality for a professional manga.

Here is Hakka-ya's rendering of Teru in the doujinshi Buchou Musou. I personally love this short story:

Last part... Is it really true that Teru gets lost in the hall too?(Oh dear... They need a map of the hall badly...)
