You can never have enough Saki. No actual mahjong in these stories, but there is some good humor in these 4-koma. You'll definitely need to have an understanding of the personalities of some characters before watching.

interesting... Not sure how it will work though. What with every chapter basically being a seperate mini-story that's completely disconnected from all the others. And if they pick just one of them then that's going to be a very short OVA.

Same as Kill me Baby. They will pack a bunch of short stories in 25-30 minute OVA.

Ι'd give it a shot when it comes out.

I hope Saki Biyori will be a good spin-off comedy.

Yes! I wouldn't mind an appetizer before the main course.
More Koromo-chan please. :D

I think the decision for OVA would work best for this. Oh well, it's better than nothing.
