Maybe I can use this to learn mahjong before I watch Saki >.<
Even if you don't have any clue what's going on, is still very entertaining. The character relationship, their background, motivation etc. The series have a snail pacing but it uses that to expand upon the characters. In the end you will root for everyone to win, not just the protagonists.

It's most prob a short and shameless plug to try out Mahjong Soul.

What the hell? That's the game Inaba Haneru was playing so much around mid 2021. From the looks of it, it will be a short.

Decent character design, but a bit of a dry announcement. I'll see what the next update has to say on it.

Yostar? Please don't tell me that this is the mahjong gacha that always hangs on their playstore page along with Aauzr Lane and Arkknights.
