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

But to see through this setup is easy once you get into the show as Japan has transformed the mahjong into an art. A beautiful art that requires innovative minds, guts, and skill to surpass the limits of yourself.
