Hmm, I am particularly vexed at what I saw at Saki: Nationals. However, I'd be best to practice prudence and avoid spilling some spoilers. As usual, I'll start in my usual review format.

Saki Nationals – continuing from the prequel known as ‘Saki’ highlights the national arc of competitors as they fight with pride.
