A friend of mine speculates that the Miyanaga matriarch is on the tournament admin, and the rules have been deliberately doctored in order to draw Saki out and force a confrontation between the sisters.

I think something similar, and that the confrontation is being forced in order to resolve the family differences. Sort of an expensive and convoluted way to go about it.

4x4 +1 = 17 doras, this could happen twice so 34 doras.... that leaves 2 dora indicators for the last 5, so 2x4 +1 = 43 doras where did the other 29 doras come from?
Maybe they use 27-Red rules (not sure if this a right term) too. When in effect, one tile each of every number - 1 to 9 in Bamboos, Characters, and Circles - are red and act as dora tile.

It's not a common rule to use but it's very fun . Everyone shuold try it once in your life.

Surely, Kuro must be happy (or feel like in hell) if she plays in the table with this rule LOL

It is convoluted, especially since it all hinged on Saki deciding to play mahjong again, and she was only able to do so because of Nodoka. There's no way that could have figured into the plan, unless the transfer of Nodoka's father to Nagano was ALSO in the cards.

Really, Saki and Teru's mom is probably the biggest question mark in the series background right now. How her personality is revealed is going to influence everything, particularly the view on the collapse of the family. I think many of us, for example, imagine this domineering and serious business mahjong maven, but what happens if we're shown (eventually) a Mrs. Miyanaga who's all sugar and rainbows?

'Death of the author' and all that, but I think Saki's lost mother might be greatly influenced by Ritz's own family situation (If that one shot manga about her is to be believed), so she might favour a convoluted and heartwarming plan to reunite a broken family.

That's, like, beyond speculation though. That's into personal inquiry.

That is so great. All they need to do now is to do a 1:30 cut and add credits -- it's perfect!

Since Requiem-X seems to have forgotten posting the news here, I'll just go ahead and do it:

Spoiler for Spoiler for Size:


Aside from giving us some fantasy-style alternate dresses for Kirame, Kuro, and Toki, the article also seems to finally give details on release for the first extra episode: if I'm reading it right (and I might not be), it's going to be bundled with the first BR disc.

And to just extend the Fate/ZERO comparisons, people are saying that Kuro is a Lancer in this one. Because being Lancer is suffering.

(Count me as being disappointed with how Kirame is conceptualized as a two-weapons user.)

Yeah, I'm afraid that's not quite it because the first Blu-Ray disc is already out. In fact, the first 6 discs are confirmed to contain episodes 1-12 at 2 episodes/disc. So it'll have to be released after that. The news on the article is just pointing out two separate things: that there will be special episodes, and that the first disc is out now.

They can't. As crazy as Saki mahjong is -- Saki mahjong is bound by the rules of the game. Koizumi mahjong is not.

I agree with Kyuu, judging by the limited flashbacks that the anime have shown us if Saki and Teru doesn't ever have a falling out, Saki will happily do whatever Teru wishes. I think that even with the strained relationship if Teru says to Saki to do something there is a high chance that Saki will do it.

It is convoluted. But since were already speculating that the Miyanaga family might be behind the scenes and judging from the overpowered ability of their offspring the parents might have the unfair ability of predicting the long term future or something like prophecy. Heck, we already have a precedent that some sort of foresight powers exist with Toki.

If you can see the future or know a part of the future, convoluted plans becomes very easy. It would also explain the meaningful names they gave their children.

Regarding Mrs. Miyanaga being all sugar and rainbows, if that happens, I think the internet is going to explode with alternative character interpretation. The Miyanaga family seems to be prone to this trope even in-universe, Saki looks like a demonic overlord when she meets Achiga, and Teru in the recent episode show signs of being a decent human being underneath it all.

That is insane. Though I do wonder if this is sort of doable in Saki since I'm sure that there is no rules/precedent for "turning all of the tiles to Haku" like there is no rules against "attracting all doras or seeing into the future".

Though it can be considered sort of cheating since on poker marking cards or tiles on this case is a violation. And I think erasing the paint on the tiles to make it a haku is considered marking the tiles.
