Hmmm Touka berserk mode... Love it.

Anyway that remind me that every character have different stlye of playing mahjong.

Momoko, Saki and Koromo = Hax
Touka = Emotional
Yumi = Strategist/Tactictian
Hisa = Betting
Nodoka = Stat & Probability Master

Oh well that my IMO lol...

Haha, as usual there's no love for Kazekoshi.

Mihoko: Field awareness
Kana: Perseverance

... I don't know why I read that as "Kana: Perv-service", which my brain automatically translated to pervert fanservice @__@.

I thought Mihoko was more like "Empathy". Anyone can read the discard piles but few people can read poker faces.

And Nodoka isn't just good with probabilities, she always takes the same amount of time to play her turn (first turn 5 seconds, all subsequent turns instantly) and still always manages to make the best choice. That already makes her a freak, totally different from normal "ratio players". It's like a soulless super computer, a very problematic opponent to have.

Also Yuuki and Nanpo (was that her name?) would also go in the "hax" category, getting a series of fast wins on the east and west rounds. That's not a strategy, that's just ESP. XD

South round for Nanpo. But yeah, I guess they have a hax middle level control during their respective rounds, though their control is not as strong as Koromo's no-one-gets-tenpai-unless-I-say-so.

So it's prediction time! The only difference from other series is that Saki readers, instead of predicting what will happen next chapter will predict whether we will have the next chapter on time. Stay tuned!

... so any spoilers?

Momo was mentioning in last page that she and senp... no, everyone (haha, got you there momo) should go to more places together, the next season, and the season after that. then she stops thinking that Yumi is about to graduate. Yumi mentions that she does have the time to stay with the team after graduation, but the problem would be Kanbara. She did tell Yumi that after graduation she would have to help in her house. Cues Kanbara in, who was out doing some jogging. In that panel Satomi tells Momo that she shouldn't worry, (next panel) instead they should face forward, face forward with all they have.

This week in Saki:

A special chapter: This time it's Tsuruga's time to get the spotlight, and not only that, but having Satomi as the protagonist for the chapter as well as many people here predicted. It's mainly a reminiscing chapter though, with Kanbara telling momo about the time she first met Yumi among other things (you are quite obsessive about that, huh Momo?), Yumi and Mutsuki coming later and the group having a small outing.

LOL moment of the chapter:

Kanbara: I've learned to identify Momo's prescence by her scent! Only when the wind's blowing though
Momo: Do I stink that much?

Somehow I get the feeling that the manga is starting to lose direction. Maybe it's just because we are forced to follow it biweekly and recent developments have been a tad slow though.

If you guys haven't noticed, we, anime-rg, have started scanlating it starting from chapter 56. We need someone capable of mahjong and have some ability in Japanese to assist in translation. Our current translators don't know much about mahjong (and almost dead when translating chapter 56 - hence it's current "pre-release" status).

Also an editor since the main translator's (and my) English sucks.

Editor sounds nice. If it's something like "rough draft gets e-mailed to me, I make the words work a bit better", I can handle that. As for the mahjong knowledge, I know of someone who speaks the language. I'll try to get him interested.

Huh... Maho turned to be quite an interesting character. I had already toyed around with the idea of a character with such a power but...

Spoiler:


It kind of makes us wonder how could they lose the junior high tournament, hehe.

Unfortunately the author will be getting a rest so no new chapters till next month.

I also thought about that, but in that case Yuuki and Nodoka should be enough to pull the team through.

It's already a miracle for me that Nodoka won the individual national tournament, when she was still so far from her Nodocchi skill. Her team didn't even pass the prefecturals :/
Maybe Yuuki's first encounter with Tacos was after that tournament?
