No! The Teru x Sumire ship will never be sunk, no matter much you say on the contrary.

Whatever the case, Shiraitodai is finally getting some personality. I'm all for this development.

Did you forget about Teru having the whole school as her harem? No one's ship has to be sunk And yes, it's quite to finally see some soul behind the monsters, especially Teru, and especially now that Saki seems to be sinking further into darkness.

I'm finding it amusing that people are whipping out the tablet PCs, instead of the notepads and laptops that they had in the first Saki.

And yes, it's nice to see the champions slowly being given character in Achiga-hen, instead of these vague threats that they were when the first anime rolled out. Eagerly waiting for the aftermath of Sumire's turn at the table, and see what Takami and Seiko can contribute to the slaughter... I mean, Shiraitodai's continued dominance of the table.

1. It's Tokyo.
2. Nagano is a bit backwards, so the top schools of other regions would most likely have access to the best technology.

Awaii: I'll be keeping Teru-neechan for myself...
Saki: No... I'll be taking back oneechan...
Awaii: Let me see you try...
Saki: I came here specifically for that...

and then auras clashes between two monsters!!! there will be natural calamities!!! I hope the tournament venue don't collapse on them...

I feel sorry for the other two people at the table during that battle...

That sounds dangerously close to the final season of beyblade, but with lesbians.

HELL YEAH!

Also, if everything goes according to plan, Shizu should also be on the table at the time. Will her years of supressed lust for Nodoka pay off at the time of the clash?

Edit:
In case you needed further evidence

Love the looks on Teru's face as well as Awai.

Teru is the boss! like a yakuza boss the whole "all girls" school bows before her and her harem.

I wish Shizu at least show some fight in the captain round of this semi final round.

Saki's game plan has never really made a lot of sense (I mean, depriving Teru of the chance to be the first three-time champion is a way to become friends with her again?), but now she's going to have to do it by beating Teru's girlfriend? Time for a rethink...

Gentlemen, the fact that you dare consider Awai as the girlfriend of Teru greatly disturbs me. Awai is just a spoiled brat! Remember, Teru is a siscon to the very core! There are no other possibilities!

*Goes into siscon Teru mode*


As a side note, please enjoy a Ryuuka:

LOL! BUT... take a look at that second picture there. Awai has her head leaning against Teru's cheek and what is Teru's reaction? None. No blushing, no embarrassment. That is a picture right there of two people who are very, very comfortable being intimate with each other. In fact, it may be the most intimate thing we've seen in Saki so far. I never pay much attention to 'shipping' in general, but it looks like the shippers got that one right.

...Or I could be taking it out of context, though it's hard to see how two people who were 'just friends' could get into that position.

On a different note, I might be jumping the gun a bit here commenting on just these few scans, but I don't like the look of what's happening in the match. When, exactly, have we ever seen any hint that Yuu has any special ability other than being able to draw in 'warm' tiles? Yet, suddenly, here she has the ability to avoid Sumire's attack, something that is so extraordinary, apparently, that it causes consternation in the Shiraitodai team. That looks unpleasantly like author ex machina to me.

I think to understand how Yu was able to avoid Sumire's ron, we need to see how exactly Sumire's ability work. Avoiding direct hit via betaori isn't something that amazing in the world of mahjong either... so calling her using 'deus ex machina' is overestimating it. She probably understand how Sumire's fight by studying it or perhaps, doing something that isn't ordinary for her standard.

Not to mention that the girl in Shiratodai team had stated that there's no weakness in Yuu's ability when she fought her before.

Now all we need is to have the fourth player with some sort of grudge against Saki then all hell will break looses in the final captain match.

This is the truth behind all that skinship Awai was forcing on Teru!

Spoiler for Evidence!:


It was never something mutual, like this fake picture!

I'm with Sumeragi-sama on this one...

I have the opposite reaction to that picture. For me that was an indication that there is nothing going on with Teru and Awaii since Teru has absolutely no reaction toward the invasion of space. As you've said there is no blushing and no embarrassment which are signs of attraction toward someone. Considering how unemotional and controlled Teru is, getting a reaction out of her would be more telling of how she feels toward someone.

I think this demonstrates more of Awaii's personality. From what I can see she doesn't seem to use honorific for anyone. Hmm... more fuel for my pet theory that Awaii is actually from another country.

@Sumeragi
Those are pretty good pictures even if I feel it sort of crack paring right now. But who knows what the next issue would bring?

Saki characters and pairing discussion are so tanoshii. Next to the mahjong discussions of course.

You've highlighted the very reason why I feel the opposite way. I can't imagine that a person as buttoned-up as Teru would tolerate someone invading her personal space like that if she didn't want it. I think Awai would have received a very cold brush-off long ago. And really, just who would tolerate having a friend (that they had no romantic interest in) pressing their head to their cheek in that manner? Is that normal behaviour where you are, it certainly isn't around my neighbourhood!?

If it's just a case that Yuu avoided something fairly straightforward, I take back what I said; it's just that the reaction of the rest of the Shiraitodai team seemed to suggest that avoiding Sumire's attack was something very unusual, which in turn looked like Yuu was using some special power that has sprung out of nowhere.

I'm inclined to say that the team as a whole is close to one another, and Teru is just shrugging it off. Remember, in the Sakiverse, the girls are much closer than all the hottest bromances fujoshis can think of!
