No need to provide pictures, because everyone’s favorite lesbian mahjong anime is back! This time with a real sequel.
I hate the manga, but I couldn’t wait these past five years for the sequel to never come out, so I ended up reading it. And after countless sleepless nights of prayers, this ended up on my doorstep.
Truth be told, I didn’t think it was possible to make a Saki sequel… The biggest obstacle being the sheer number of talents that would be required to give voice to each of those sweet nubile high school girls. Theoretically, one voice actress can do multiple characters, but this isn’t BlazBlue, the viewers would eventually catch on and there will be hell to pay. I didn’t know what to expect with this series, but the first episode boasts an all-star cast erasing all doubts that these people aren’t afraid to throw all their money into this disgusting garbage anime! i’m lovin’ it
I can honestly say Saki is the only thing keeping me alive after Haruhi repeatedly stabs me in the face every week. Episode 15 was good for two reasons: One, the fukushou matches ended. Two, the taishou matches started. I guess the fact Momoko is so adorable could be a possible third reason, but I’d rather not bring my sexual drive into this since my opinion tends to get awfully skewed in the presence of charming ladies. That may be why I’m still single. more…
Episode 13 was worse than episode 12 in terms of time-wasting and pissed me off in every way possible. The animation was superb, considering it was from a dying studio, but it wasn’t enough. I wanted more mahjong play and less scenes of Touka getting excited and wet from absolutely nothing. I mean, seriously, what was getting her so worked up anyways? Nothing happened! Haramura Nodoka won twice and gained like 10,000 points. That’s not story progression, that’s not turn-of-event, there was nothing significant to it. It was just Nodoka winning twice in a boring uneventful game.
Saki slowly moves her hand up for the oncoming convulsions.
Was there really a point to this episode besides giving me blue balls? I don’t think so. And what really pissed me off was that they didn’t focus the anime on the real main character: Touyoko Momoko. Momoko is Tsuruga’s secret weapon. They’ve been biding their time just for these last two rounds. When the professional mahjong bitch is going on about how the unfair rules favor “special children” Momoko is amongst the sillhouettes. So who exactly is she?
I’ll tell you what, Momoko is a ninja. There, that’s what’s up.
