Info: (Official)
Download: Fansub available through
Watch Online: Simulcasted on Crunchyroll
Genres: School Drama / Mahjong
I've watched: 1 episode

Summary: Saki is a high school student who is very skilled in Mahjong but doesn't like to play. One day she was dragged to the Mahjong club and the members of the club witnessed her amazing Mahjong skill.

First impression score: 85 ~ Technical

Personal comments: I used to play Mahjong a lot, so I'm familiar with the topic. However, what I'm not familiar with is the Japanese Mahjong scoring rules. It's a quite more complicated scoring system than the one I'm used to play with. But nevertheless, I was able to mostly follow the technical part of the story. After seeing only the first episode, it's already making me want to start playing some serious mahjong again.
