Synopsis

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?

Preliminary (108/? eps)
Ritz Kobayashi's mahjong manga is a relatively simple concept that has been executed well. The title character Saki Miyanaga is a genius player whose ability to manipulate her own score develops from being bullied while playing with members of her family. Despite her hatred for the game, Saki is drawn into her high school's mahjong club and soon aims to help take the club to the national tournament in order to reunite with her older sister who is member of the reigning national team champion.

Artistically, Saki is very clean and easy on the eye. The art does not occupy the reader with individual detailed panels ...

Saki is like a case study in how to make a manga fall apart completely. The first ~8 volumes or so (which correlate roughly to the first season of the anime) are amazing, an easy 9 out of 10. After that it goes downhill fast though, and at some point the art & writing just fall of a damn cliff and eventually it feels like the story barely takes place in the same world as it started anymore.

It's a true shame because had you asked me 10 years ago I would have recommended this to just about anyone based on where it was at ...

Preliminary (100/? eps)
I’ll be honest here, I only came to read the manga for the tits. I was looking at this like a hentia, but I thought, “Maybe the story will keep me here.” It didn’t.

Characters, pretty boring. Saki just hates Majong because she would lose money when she lost and make her family member mad when she won. So she decided to always achieve a 0 score to ensure no lose or money or angering family members. Overall a good reason to hate the game and get good at it, in my opinion. But that’s where praise ends. Everything else is whatever, characters don’t have any ...
