Unbelievable, it seemed that the manga breaks managed to cross the 4th wall and infect the anime.

At least well be getting next week episode which is a small consolation.

Truth be told this is the first anime that I knew of that took a break like that, the last one is Madoka but there was an extreme circumstance that caused it. Do you think they're trying to sync the ending of the achiga manga and the anime by any chance like they did with the original series?

Will the total number of eps reduce by 1 due to the break? I hope it doesn't.

From what the official blog says, it's due to something taking over its slot on TV Tokyo next week. The rest of the stations are following suit probably because of contracts saying they can't air an episode before TVT.

No, it's just a "pause" in broadcasting the series. We know from the DVD/BD solicitations that it's 12 episodes. That won't change. It's just that it'll last longer than 12 weeks during broadcasting.

Finally started watching, and I have to say that the ED is as cute as ever!

Considering the manga is monthly, I doubt a one week delay will do anything for catching up.

I think everyone noticed already but, the usage of the ED is based on what the next episode's atmosphere is like.

So if its ending 1, maybe it is kind of OWNING from Achiga.

If its ending 2, "get ready to be OWNED!" like style.(More serious and badass business.)

There might be more to come, too; the original Saki introduced a third ending theme fairly late into the series.

I'm enjoying Achiga, but I wish there'd be more in this show than just mahjong. :/ Not even the original Saki was this mahjong-heavy. I know that mahjohn's the main focus of the series, but t's starting to feel a bit suffocating. We need a breather episode that actually focuses on, y'know, character interaction and stuff like that.

Eh, the first part of the series wasn't that Mahjong heavy though, only the 2 most recent episodes have been really...

Playing mahjong... you actually interact via the tiles.

See Bucchou vs Kyaptain (eps 23 to season 1)

Blame it on the low episode count, and the fact that, well, they ARE in the finals after all. Don't worry though, there should be a break, but it's not quite a breather as you'd expect, as it's really just a calm before the storm... the storm named Miyanaga Teru.

Ah, well having some character-related drama and conflict is fine. Just something besides a game where I don't ever have the first clue what's going on.

Don't worry, when that time comes, we shall see...( But I really wanted to see Teru vs Saki in a mahjong match. )

Did not notice that though.
VA joke:Watch episode 19 Moretsu Pirates... Buuchou vs Kyaptain.

There's a little problem with that though, since each sister actually play different positions in the relay line-up.

We have the individuals for a reason , and Teru was the defending champ for it iirc.

Are you sure? Looking at episode 3 ED then Kuro's performance in episode 4. I don't think that's the case.

Let me retract that statement... I made that mistake.

Usually it means badass ending which leads to a badass start of the next episode.(Either the enemy or the ally(Achiga))

For the love of god. Is it that difficult to hire a mahjong pro and fill time with whatever he can come up with.

Otherwise the episode was nice. And the following episodes should be the highlight of the series.

Arata and Shizu's matches went by pretty quickly, but then, this is only the quarterfinals. The semis are a more momentous occasion. (Not as much as the finals, but I have no idea if this series will even make it there.) Shizu's a completely different beast than Saki, but that was a pretty impressive turnaround on her end. I really like the hotbloodedness Aoi Yuki is bringing to the role.

More cameos. This is the most I've seen of Teru, ever. She's pretty much exactly what the first series hinted at. Beloved by the mahjong world, but also one of the most ruthless players around. If Achiga and Teru's team make it into the finals against Kiyosumi and some other team... that would make for a pretty intense (and plot important) final match. Also, yay, Momo's back! Just as charming as ever.
