Miyanaga Saki is a high school freshman who doesn't like mahjong. Ever since she was a child, she would lose her New Year's gift money during her family mahjong game. If she won, her parents would be upset, and if she lost, well, she lost. As a result, she's learned to play in such a way that her score always remains plus/minus zero: not good enough to win, but not bad enough to lose. When we meet her, she's being dragged to her school's mahjong club by an old friend. How will a girl who hates mahjong, yet has become adept at the game as a result of her upbringing, survive in this environment?

Saki has been digitally published in English by Yen Press since December 29, 2015.

I tried to like Saki, I really did.

I'm a sucker for mahjong manga and will gobble up anything to satisfy my passion for it, but this manga is just unreadable.

For starters, the characters:
the titular character, Saki, is extremely boring and there is very little to like about her. She has near no personality, and is either frustrating to watch when she decides not to win on purpose, or very boring when she just wins by virtue of being the main character. Everyone acts like she's a genius for scoring big wins but we never get much insight into her strategy or logic. She's not built read more
