That's because you have. We know more about Shino after three chapters than Saki after more than 100. Even taking the difference in pages per chapter into account, the difference is still massive.

I sure hope its intentional from Ritz's part.

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 don't. I want Ritz to spend lots of time on these characters so that we can love them just as much as the main mangas.

I think it is. Saki and Hisa's past are the biggest mysteries right now. Saki's past revealed should be fun to see. It was already a holy crap moment when we just saw a glimpse of what it was.

Why is Kanna and Shino so perfect for each other?

Woohoo!
It seems the author learned from the shortcoming of Achiga and decided to go into characterization right off the bat. For better or worse, it could be that Shinohayu isn't getting adapted into anime anytime soon so Ritz had plenty more time to develop characters. She seems to mention wanting to give proper backstories to every known team, but not enough time, again it could be due to having to keep up with the anime.

Actually, the anime production commitee is quite ambitious in getting ahead of the minga this time if it really turn out to be a 2-cour. If they get too far ahead and cover the whole side B semi, wouldn't it affect the sales of the manga? I don't remember original Saki anime being this far ahead, even though I haven't start reading the manga back then.

I don't mind if Ritz put a lot of characterization in Shinohayu but the truth is I want to see them in the high school in the story.

I mean, if they are going to stay as elementary school kids for 3-4 volumes (That's very long for monthly manga!), why would Ritz use the grown-up version of them in promotional image in the first place?

Well, ok, I will just open up my pedobear mode

The part where "I'm going to meet my oneechan and defeat anyone who gets in my way," looks rather tame.

I expect at least some good old lightening eye instead of just a small flickering flame. That's one of the trademarks that make Saki anime stands out which I find lacking in Achiga.

Funny you say that, as Saki looked and felt the most threatening during her first brief appearance in Achiga.

Also, I forgot to mention that as some sort of countdown, the anime staff is putting out sketches for one character each day, and today's is quite a sight.

The anime's first season had more contents shown than what was shown in the manga. So maybe the training camp at the end of the first season was the same as in the manga but in the anime they only showed just the very beginning of the training camp with extra scenes.

The first season ended with them about to play mahjong during the training camp so maybe the new season will start right after that scene.

Wrong, the first season ends with them already at the Nationals. Specifically the lottery for placement in the match bracket.

Oh right. Still I think the new season will start by going back to the training camp at the end of the first season since they didn't show all the matches played during the camp.

Any scenes from that will probably just be flashbacks. You know how Ritz LOVES her flashbacks.

I only have to question , Will we finally see " cold Touka " playing style in the anime ( still possible as they always add some mahjong in the anime )
And Will we see Maho making a Rinshan ( I just want to see that animate

We'll most likely see Maho's abilities if they're doing the full training camp. As for Touka i'm less optimistic because we didn't see it in the manga but it would be a nice extra for the anime to throw in. I also want to see the Hisa vs Koromo vs Yumi vs Mihoko match that wasn't shown.

I think Cold Touka is in. There's two parts in that PV that shows her, I think.

EDIT: As to her ability, I think it's simply just overpowered control of the flow.

This. I am also looking forward to "cold Touka".

It will be interesting to see how they show Maho shaking up Saki.... But I am most waiting for Saki to go into god-mode when she causes an earthquake. ^^
