Yep, actually having a conversation with her that she responds to is probably step number 1.

There is so much about their relationship - and by extension the relationship with her mother - that is not said, too.

And we probably shouldn't expect anything on that front until the individuals... but hey, at least by then we'll most likely have children to share the moment with.

Well, I take back my previous statement. NOW it has literally every named character, and we have our first official duplicate kanji given name (Hitomi Ezaki/Munesue). I wonder who's older, Nanpo or Oonuma?

Ritz changed Rinkai's coach name into Alexandra Windheim
... I wonder why.
It's mentioned on her newest blog post.
My bet is on Oonuma pro. being the older of the two.

Awai seems to have one of the other two every single time, and the only time Saki ever got close to a Kan it was an honor tile Pon.

However, something interesting popped up. Normally, Saki gets horrible reactions with sequences and tends to avoid them in the games, but vs. the two of them, she was getting lots and lots of sequences.
The reason why this is happening is because of Awai. One of Awai's ability is to make sure all her opponents have terrible starting hands.

Right. The whole 5/6-shanten. But it's interesting that it blocks Saki's chances for a kan long enough for Shizu to activate hers to block it out the rest of the way.

Well, this just strengthens my assumption that the final captain round will be filled with opponents that are designed to be anti-Saki. And wow, if this is true their powers will even have good synergy with one another. lol.

Have I mentioned how I love the amount of thought Ritz puts in the mahjong matches? Analyzing the matches sure is fun. I'm almost through with the quarter finals.

FYI, there are reports that Zenkoku-hen will be 26 episodes (or at least 2 cours).

In 2 cour length. Can they squeeze the finals there? and on that link. Isn't the image Nisekoi and not Saki?

no matter how long it is they aren't getting the finals in there. This means the semi-finals will definitely be animated though. As for the image, you are correct.

i think you are absolutely right, just like Ritz make a whole team of anti Teu at the semi final, this time is Sakis turn, if onee-chan can win when everyone are against her why not imouto,

and after all having shizu there at the table will enable Saki to show Teru
"onee-chan yes, above all those tree line on tallest of the mountain a flower can bloom"

yes Saki you must have great hurdle to achieve your goal

Well now, 2 cours means we will get the semis after all. We'll end up overtaking the manga then. Fine by me.

Maybe not that long... since when was the last Saki again? the first season? I have forgotten what year it was shown.

Wow, it hasn't really been that long then. I really thought it was older.

Anyway, did someone ask for Shinohayu leaks?

http://tieba.baidu.com/p/2772907269

Spoiler for Spoiler:


Also, one very important detail (for a certain part of the fanbase) is revealed

Spoiler for Spoiler:


Also, it seems today is the birthday of the cool, swim-impaired Yumi-sempai!

The leak now comes out 3-4 day before than the release date??? Cool!

I see........look like we will get Shino1, Shino2, Shino3 >>> Kanna1, Kanna2, Kanna3 then Hayari1, Hayari2, Hayari 3 ........based on chapter name. I guess that's why Ritz said they will still in elementary school at vol.4.

I hope I will be wrong about this.........

I wouldn't mind Hayarin getting some decent characterization, though.

Oh, I forgot to mention, leaks for the next biyori are out as well. Three words:

I wonder if Ritz is making sure that, this time, the "side-cast" will be fleshed out pretty well? I feel like I've gotten to know Shino's background/character even better than some of the main characters.
