Honestly if they don't put Saki up against Teru at the very end, I'm certain ALOT of fans will be very disappointed.

Well, there's always the individuals...

Man get over it, Kiyosumi will NOT participate in the individuals.
Kiyosumi didn't participate in the premilinaries individuals so they can't participate in the national individuals.
It's just like the team tournament: you can't register in the national since you gotta win the premilinaries to be able to participate. The national are like a continuation of the premilinaries and aren't another tournament you can just go register to.

The mangaka will have to find another way around to show Saki vs Teru, and putting Teru somehow at the post of captain sound like the best option imo.

But Kiyosumi might just had entered the tournament in the shadow without us noticing

But the anime did the individual so we'll probably see it there

Oh my, we can't just get over it since you're the one who's ignoring a lot evidence from the canon materials.

Not to burst your bubble or anything but it's really weird for you to assume every fillers from the anime aren't canon materials ^^ Fillers or not, the Nationals preview was done by the anime producer with supervision by Ritz himself. It was proved to be canon, anyway. The preview worked as a foreshadowing. I'm sure the contents of the 'fillers' were added by Ritz himself and he even supervised the storyboards. That's what most original creators do, supervise the storyboards of their anime.

So even though the content is “filler” because it doesn’t occur in the manga, it is still canon. The same applies to Individuals. I doubt Ritz wants to waste time by showing us the matches of Individuals in the manga, anyway.

The individuals is actually CANON and it did happen in the manga, the matches weren't shown, though. Kiyosumi DID enter the tournament. Mihoko was the champion of the individuals(this is CONFIRMED in the Achiga's manga) Even the anime-exclusive character, Nanpo Kazue, DOES exist in the manga . And the match when Saki could see Momo's dealt tiles, also HAPPENED.

Guess I have to put this up since you won't listen...

Spoiler for individuals in the manga

Please take all the evidence from the canon materials into account before shoving your arguments down someone's throat ^^

Ok, I admit I was wrong, I totally forgot about that page.
I don't want to lead the discussion astray but most author do not supervise the adaptation of their work as much as you make Ritz sound like he/she does. Most of the time it's actually the opposite and filler sometime even goes as far as contradicting the main material (And most of the time it doesn't, it's just random element with no repercusion on the story later, which doesn't make it canon either).
I didn't know that Ritz was supervising it that much (And seriously except if you are a diehard fan of the serie or stumbled on the information at random, you won't ever know about that).

The last episode of Saki was released on September 28, 2009. At that time, the manga chapters were around 53-55. Chapter 55 was released in September 2009, if I recall correctly. Chapter 55 showed nothing about Inter-high opponents, it was about Yumi and Momo. Only in Chapter 56 that we were shown a glimpse of Kiyosumi's future opponents, but Chapter 56 was released in December 2009, so the anime went ahead of the manga and even included some spoilers about Nationals. Since Chapter 56 of the manga wasn't out at that time yet, the anime production staff had no way of knowing anything about Eisui, Rinkai, future opponents and matches etc unless it was Ritz who was behind these 'fillers'. Since everything in the nationals' preview has been made canon now(Jindai, Awai, Toyone in BD version, Nodoka and Hatsumi's match) you're not gonna say that the production staff predicted this, right?

I guess you can say that I'm a diehard fan of the series ;P

I know.

How surprising, indeed!

But that was then, and I'm holding myself back a lot, so I'm barely the troll master now, lol. XD

What a marvelous beast!

I have a feeling the tables are going to be tipped towards the other 3 players the rest of the round just so everyone won't die in absolute shame.

Watching Teru RAPE those little girls is far too much fun!

Seriously, it's unfortunate this anime couldn't revolve around Teru, she's vastly more interesting than the ENTIRE cast from Achiga...

Teru is nuts. Complete annihilation to the other players.

Next episode is a flashback?

Teru is a monster, good luck stopping her once she gets rolling, subara~

Well, Toki's power lives up to her name.

Meanwhile Kuro... Let's see if the can even get a win, but I'm afraid that things will go even worse.
