I ordered the first 4 volumes of Saki today. I felt really confortable reading Watashitachi no Tamura raw so decided to give this a shot as well since its one of my favorite series atm. While i wont understand much of the mahjong play, i'll still be able to get what happening. If all goes well with reading this I may pick up a few more series in japanese that i know won't be licensed anytime soon.
This past weekend I picked up another 150? or so volumes of manga XD I haven't counted the exact number yet. I would list it all here, but that would be a bit much, I think. At any rate, about 60 volumes of it is older shoujo stuff. The rest is newer shoujo, some yaoi, and even a few *gasp* shounen things XD (used manga stores FTW!)
