oh how I remember the days I used to play Mahjong, had a uncle teach me and my sister how to play. Don't know how to play now tho, totally forgotten everything about it(I have a terrible memory and things tend not to stick with me)
but when I came across this series had to read it. Most of my family can play, might try to take it up again

@Bonta Kun: What, before I even start, you got me to start the system lol, I guess, more work for the Marriage Registry:

Nodoka: C.A., Bonta Kun

New members to the waifu system, just post here and announce your waifu, I'll record them down. I'm not sure if people are going with multiple waifus here or choosing only one.

I can't, C.A. I don't want to bring you a whole list of my waifu. I like about 60% the number of girls in Saki .

In that case, I have said everything I need to say. If you gonna watch the show with that kind of mindset, I don't think you will be able to enjoy it like we do.

Am I looking at a different series? That's not actually a loli on that cover. It's just drawn like one there. She's the exact same age as Saki and is only of a slight difference in stature.

Thanks.... looks like we're already getting into a few "teaching moments" here. An art style doesn't define an age.

Kobayashi Yu is voicing one of the rival team members, I wonder how good she is at seiyuu role. I was never interested in any of the animes where she voices characters. However, she did a great job on the ending song of Dragonaut. Perhaps, that's the only thing I like about the series which is currently on-hold.

I don't mean to be rude, but do people actually try watching an anime just basing on the seiyuu they like?

And? Loli isn't defined by age, as far as I know. Evangeline from Negima is an loli, and do you know how old is she?

And the never-ending multiplicity of meanings continue....

The problem is that there seem to be several distinct meanings of "loli" and a consensus seems unreachable.

You know always wondered about that, I know the whole seiyuu thing is huge n all, I do try to keep up with who doing what and so forth but I don't let it decide what anime to watch. Same with Studios, I don't get why people think if a studio did poorly with one series they will with another.

I just find all that stuff makes watching anime not fun.

but thats just me, altho I do love the seiyuu list for this series

That is but one of many factors.

I was like "Seriously?". How can one keep watching an anime that has absolutely nothing interesting aspect to him except for the seiyuu?
Well, it's fine if the show can entertain him, just don't come and complain if it doesn't meet your expectation or fit your taste just because you have absolutely no idea about the anime.

Kaoru Chujo is one of our fellow posters who really follows Seiyuu and will take on a series if particular favorites are involved. I have a few VAs I'm fond of.... but if the gig is in a genre or a plotline I already know I dislike, I'll give it a pass.

The presence of seiyuu I like will definitely get me to watch an episode or two of any series, no matter what genre it is in or what quality I expect it to be. But even great seiyuu can't keep me watching a show that is otherwise uninteresting for me. I gave up on Zettai Karen Children despite Hirano Aya; and Wagaya no Oinarisama despite Hayami Saori. To say nothing of Code Geass, despite Yukana, Koshimizu Ami, and Orikasa Fumiko.

But I don't expect the only attraction of this show to be its seiyuu. The manga is cute and fairly involving. The director of Dragonaut is hardly an attraction, but the writer of Monster and Strawberry Panic sounds fairly promising. And the mahjong aspect is intriguing.

Which is a rather alarming fact, like crimes defined without actual victims

Okay, I understand. Let's stop here because basically, we have different view on the same thing.

Sorry, shouldn't have spoken for you Aye, the manga looks to be an enjoyable basis for an anime ... and normally, I *would* run screaming away knowing the director was the point man on Dragonauts but we'll just assume he was working with what he had.... o.O

Hmmm, that reminds me I never did finish Wagaya no Oinarisama either.... I have all the eps... just lost incentive to finish.

I will say the series has got me interested in finding out how mahjong is played --- for years I've just played the matching tile PC game and my wife expressed some interest last time we were wandering in the shops of San Francisco Chinatown district.

You ever played Gin Rummy? It's closest to that as far as Western table games go.

Having a good seiyuu cast is usually a plus for me, although I must admit that I'm actually looking forward to this show mostly because of the seiyuus. They did a wonderful job in the Drama CD (at least the main characters who were featured), and that left a good impression on me for the future anime adaptation.
