We had a nice Saki thread yesterday, but the raws for Saki 151 were released too late.
Dumping it now.
1 - Sawaya discarded 3p in the last chapter and was ronned by Kyouko.
1) Himematsu at last
East 3 - Sawaya is dealer, but she has a bad starting hand
Uh, lets's call some help. Furikamui, a giant monstrous bird.
Saki tries her pokerface, but she doesn't fool Kyouko.
she draws more wind tiles except her own wind (E) and is aiming for honitsu
Sawaya's hand is somewhat expensive: Honitsu Honrouto Toitoi Dora 2 (did I miss something?)
Sawaya had luck since Kyouko was waiting for 9p.
And at last, Nodoka tulpa.
"No yaku and 4 dora, it's time for riichi, right?"
But Saki didn't press the free sex button.
She missed riichi ippatsu tsumo dora 4 (7 han, possibly more with ura dora) and kan instead of winning with tsumo dora 4.
tsumo rinshan kaioh sanshoku dora 4.
Saki's first in this match.
Oh, last page, there is no delay, but the chapter is rather short (12 pages).
Christ. Is there anything that Sakisan can't do? She has tulpa, could unto Internet mahjong and isn't afraid of anything.
Is she going to tell Nelly that it's not her territory anytime soon?
Next round is East 4 with Kyouko as dealer. I hope that Sawaya's bird will still be active, it would be a waste. But I suppose that Nelly will strike with Kyouko as dealer, if her smirk in >>133756395 means something.
Also it's Toshi's birthday in Japan.
Kyouko now you've done it.
Last chapter your crossed your arms and now you feel the need to do that smug closed eye pose.
I'm not going to stand for this anymore.
The Himerevolution begins now.
I thought for a second that Ritz left a blank speech bubble.
Possible bingo if we count the Uwawa Saga as mindbroken Saki.
Is this legal?
I thought once you declared riichi, you could only declare kan if it didn't change your wait.
Yet here Saki-san's waiting on 1-4 man, and by kanning changes to 1-4 pin.
I think this is an accurate depiction of Saki-sans thoughts at the moment and why she didn't call riichi.
Only after Saki is done with her and her nice hips but no ass.
Since the beginning of match Kyouko hasn't been ronned once. There is no way people who rely on flow and bullshit powers could ever ron rank one.
To win with a big hand Saki and Nelly will have to ron each other or Sawaya or tsumo. Sawaya will not be ronned, since it will make Usuzan look even worse, Saki can't ron Nelly, since it would make Nelly queen of jobbers and Nelly can't ron Saki because the latter has plot armor. So, the decisive hand will be wo by tsumo.
Here is how it will happen. Nelly's power is similar to Maho's (which is why Hisa introduced her to Saki in first place). During South 4 (Kyouko's delearship) Sawaya (North seat) will try to use her final form to win with chiihou and Nelly (South seat) would steal that power to get win for herself. As a dealer, Kyouki will lose mo points and 2nd place will go to scared shitless Saki.
Will Kyouko get a hanamaru with lipstick on her forehead (and kisses and hugs from the other players) or a "I failed" with permanent marker (and a schooling session with Ikuno in her basement)?
>Sawaya is thinking that all she needs to do is win this hand and they'll go the finals
>summons her final god
>looks at her hand
>she begins to despair as she sees that it's a totally average hand
>looks up at Nelly and sees that her summon is standing behind her
>Nelly wins with chiihou
Just like Shindouji, did anyone seriously think they'd pass?
>vanguard takes a major loss
>sergeant loses a few points
>lieutenant completely shits the bed
>vice regains some points
>captain gets a yakuman to have a moment of glory, but ultimately loses
or something like this:
>Sawaya used all her pagan powers and starts praying to the Christian God
>Everyone in Usuzan joins in
>Suddenly an angel appears and Sawaya starts crying with tears of joy
>Nodocchi flies to Saki-san to hug her from behind
>Eisui not getting in
>implying it wasn't a good twist
Don't worry you'll see awakened Jindai in the individuals.
As for Usuzan, it's over for them sadly. I'm sure the vanguard finals match being Teru vs Satoha will make up for it.
Yes, this is the last match in the semi-finals. 5 hands remain: East 4 and South 1-4 (I assume that there will be no tie-breaker West wind round).
Also, if I remember correctly, the finals will start the next day, that is, there is no long slice of life intermezzo, but we may hear from the reporter Junko Nishida instead.
Teru vs Saki motherfucker. Shut the fuck up.
Speaking of the individuals would you guys rather
>Nodoka makes it to the finals
>Nodoka loses to Saki in the semis or some other round
>Nodoka gets blown up in an early round
Congratulations on being the sole member of the Eisui fan club.
Eisui are the cutest man. Just look at the adorable dangling feet.
Jindai, Hatsumi and Black Sugar are certainly cute but they don't have that much character to them. That's why I think Eisui is mostly unpopular compared to other teams.
I'm starting to wonder what team is the most popular on /a/. It seems like for a while Himematsu has been the favorite. I'd do a poll to find out but that's too much work.
Everyone reply to this with your favorite team
I just want the individuals or the next Hisa match. Ritz please.
Eisui as I've said but Koromo's team comes close.
before: Miyanaga-san, Hanamura-san
after: Saki-san, Nodoka-chan
I don't have one, probably Kiyosumi since I like all characters including Kyou-chan.
In side A, only the four semifinalists are worth considering. Ranking is perhaps Senriyama (3.5) = Achiga (3.5) > Shiraitodai (3) > Shindouji (2).
The remainig teams from side B are all on around the same level (3).
Sae is best Miyamori.
Her coach is way too cutie!
Well, Kuro was made to have sex with lots of men.
>wait a year and a half for Nodo tulpa
>Saki ignores advice of Nodo tulpa
autism killed toki
gay < autist < gay autist
the natural order
hoping for a Toshi appearance in Shinohayu
It's time for Nelly and Saki to go after Kyouko
Why is she missing part of her head?
So Saki 151 passes with no announcement of Zenkoku 2.
This means the next anime will be either Shinohayu or Biyori, right?
Well, still gotta pick a favorite.
All Achigas are for prostitution.
All Miyamoris are for circus shows.
All Eisuis are for sex for the purpose of procreation.
All Atagos are for sex for the purpose of recreation.
All Miyanagas are for loving and cuddling.
Why aren't you playing real life mahjong?
Because she needed to git gud
>how hard will Kyoko get destroyed by Nelly?
If she fucks up, she'll get rekt. She knows that.
What a cute girl! I hope she finds a good man who will marry her and have three kids one day.
>there are real life people who think this
still no Shinohayu leaks except a double color page from the magazine page (from futaba, scaled with waifu2x)
yes, and also the last Ritz chapter, volume 5 of Shinohayu (bonuses and perhaps a few extra pages), and some extra congratulation pics (don't expect too much).
if the fan din't give it away...
it's an edit of Haruna from Kore wa Zombie desu ka
We know how she will look in high school, she is fine as she is.
holiday gift idea: Mahjong Rubik's cube
next birthday: Douyama Yukari of Imamiya High
first round opponent of Mako in the Nagano team tournament
that's the curse of sergeants.
About sergeants... Kyouka's birthday is next week.
>Maho with tits
>Muro wearing hip waders
somewhere in between
>purifies boobs to remove demons
best job ever
that was during the Sawaya streak. The new points are in >>133780382
It's still not much since Saki is on a rampage, but she stopped her dealer repeats.
Nelly: 1 hand won
Sawaya: 2 hands won (but they were worth a lot of points)
Saki: 5 hands won
Kyouko: 10 hands won, and she never dealt in.
Nelly dealt in only once, and I suppose that it was on purpose.
Does she need to suck them? She has probably strong jaw muscles.
Most fuckable Eisui. And she's a lot better than her cousin.
That's not the glasses miko
If they can't do a handstand without risk of asphyxiation, they're too big. Otherwise, OK.
It's going to be in the sergeant's finals match, I can just feel it in me.
She's going to stop attempting to use her power that's not going to work anyway because of a particular red-attracting person, put her glasses back on while saying "Grandpa, I need to see this through with my own eyes"
I'm not losing hope until the sergeant's match is over. Which will still probably be 2-3 years from now.
If Ritz hurries she can finish the semifinals in this year, but I suppose that she will finish the semifinals with the end of a volume (I think three chapters).
And then comes the long awaited Teru match...
Okay, perhaps it will be in two years.
Sorry anon, you can't continue the round with negative points.
>Okay, perhaps it will be in two years.
I hope there is some nice SOL moments in the hotel or restaurant or something for character interaction. Shit is boring when we're waiting a month for more just luck tile chapters.
Finals happen the day after side b semis right?
The sharpest blade is dull before the edge of the wind.
(<- scores are fake)
>Teru - Kuro - Yuuki - Satoha
Could get vicious. We know Teru's chuuren is coming.
>Sumire - Yuu - Mako - Hao
Mako gets the ryuiisou. Does Sumire fix her tell?
>Takami - Ako - Hisa - Choe
Festival of lesbian sex.
>Seiko - Arata - Nodoka - Megan
Seiko probably gets powerup, but Nodocchi will wreak havoc. Nodoka has the only big tits in the final; Ritz what have you done?
>Awai - Shizu - Saki - Nelly
This. We've been waiting for this. Goldfish, Teru, the mistake by the lake, the burning wheelchair, speaking through mahjong, Miyanaga reunion.
What about a date with a magical girl?
everyone can advance.
And this was posted in futaba. Is it new?
She's the best Himematsu, but I'd rather have a date with an archer.
>Tomorrow we have a trip to the factory
>It's supposedly a school trip
>It's not a fun (tanoshii) trip
I don't remember this. It must be new.
Confirmed. Yumachi girls are going to Hiroshima.
not that far of a trip
Hope for either a new mahjong rival, or a Nana sighting.
maybe more Fatalizer later, if nobody minds
Hiroshima... that rings a bell, but she's a 2-3 years old kid right now in Shinohayu. Perhaps we can play "Where is Ichigo?" in this chapter.
circle of life
tribute to the recently deceased VA
She's probably going to learn that her family's moving away from Nagano.
I don't want to go to Hiroshima, I want to go to middle school.
Zenkoku had less dramatic episode endings compared to Achiga-hen. Achiga-hen had the best cliffhangers.
Remember this moment?
It had the best dramatic credit fade ins. But Zenkoku had really good non-dramatic credit fade ins.
I doubt it. Ritz hasn't seemed to imply that can or will happen. The existence of the individuals is good evidence that it wont happen.
Sure, as if Satoha the fake assassin has anything on Teru's Ea.
>mfw, after learning of this VA cross over
I'll forever hear her say "Chinroutou".
That's not Teru. This is Teru.
Seems more like a Lancer to me.
To be fair, if it was set up as - one team dominating while the other 3 fight for 2nd - they'd be repeating themselves. This is exactly what happened in the quarterfinals, with Senriyama running away with it.
The truth of beauty is to be true to yourself.
Sasuga Ritz. It's as if she predicted it.
Kyouko looks smug after winning the last hand; Nelly is on the prowl
Sawaya summons another demon (her last?)
Sawaya working on a non-stealthy honitsu.
Saki realizes it.
Sawaya with a pointless kan; gets to tenpai.
I guess Kyouko discardes the 4s on the last page, and the top panel is her internal voice.
Long-awaited Nodo-tulpa with the boobs to Saki's back.
Saki gets to tenpai, but it's a bad wait on the 2 remaining 6s (of which Kyouko has one). Don't really understand the riichi nagging.
Next Shinohayu/Biyori on November 24
Shinohayu is leaking already (>>133806560)
So, without the kan, she would have had tsumo / 4 dora. But with the kan, she got 2 additional yaku (rinshan / sanshoku). Good, she needs points (>>133780382).
but Kyouko's next dealer, right?
Nelly (ch. 149) - Saki (ch. 149-150) - Sawaya (ch. 151) - Kyouko (ch. 152 ..)
Don't forget Igarashi.
Ritz has gotten to Igarashi like Niemann has powers over Nana.
So who will be the 5th member of their school team?
Kanna, Shino, Haya, and Yue all got covers and then Akado gets one out of fucking nowhere. Fuck her.
If it's going to be Kyouka, give her a damn cover.
Reminder that Kyouka made the Shimane elementary individual final, but Yue didn't.
I'm worried that Ritz might kill off Kyouka. Her absence in the high school artwork is suspicious.
We know that the high school (Asakumi) is a boarding school. The 5 scholarships leave an opening for a fifth mystery person. Maybe someone tied to Saki? Or a former opponent like Kokoro?
But there is literally nothing wrong with a het end. As long as you love someone isnt it fine?
Ritz needs to incorporate these boobs somehow.
Sasuga Iwato family.
Kyouka might end up at Kasubuchi High (bottom right). That would be interesting, having Kyouka play for a rival team against all of her friends at Asakumi.
It would be like the Nagano teams, or Achiga and Bansei. I could see Ritz doing that.
>Shino having to beat her friend-mom for a chance to find her real mom.
Nice plot twist.
I just can't keep up with Shinohayu. Every time I fall behind a bit, I forget everything and have to start at the beginning. And then I still can't remember anything. Why is Shinohayu so Shitohayu?
So I was watching the Zen Coke and I was like whatafug.
They hyped Jindai like she was a big deal and then just as she was about to show her powers the match was over.
Kokoro is a year behind Shino.
Yue's a year ahead, so if it's 5 scholarships per year, there are two openings, assuming Kyouka goes to the other school.
Editor in chief's daughter could be another teammate or rival. Plus whoever they meet in Hiroshima (>>133806560).
All of this has to connect to Saki and Teru somehow. Saki's dad is also a writer like Richardson; wouldn't be surprised to see them meet at some point.
I want to fuck Kyouka so hard.
Kyouka with her hair down is smoking hot.
Elementary schoolers should not be allowed to be as sexy as Igarashi draws them.
I really, really want to go to jail.
It's also her birthday on thanksgiving.
Give thanks to Igarashi and Ritz for this beautiful jailbait.
Most online mahjong games have a button that pops up automatically when you can call riichi (or pon, kan, chi, etc.). And calling riichi gets you yaku points if you win the hand.
But calling riichi also sends a signal to your opponents that you're in tenpai, and puts them on the defensive, making it harder for you to win. Also, when you call riichi, you can only discard the tiles you draw, which makes it very easy to play into someone else's hand.
So, like having free sex, calling riichi is something that always sounds like a good idea, but frequently is definitely NOT a good idea. Hence the joke.
What are the chances that every character in shinohayu is unmarried during the main saki manga time?
You say that like it's something to be ashamed of!
Sleeping is hard when you're hot.
Adult Hayari needs to find a new host for the evil parasitic alien hair ornaments, before they give her cancer or something.
Does she become a megane later on?
Do we have a Saki voiced by Taneda Risa yet?
I feel like her voicing Yue, Kanna, or Yuan would be good.
There's this one picture...
... but her cover pic is without, so who knows
Thanks, cause I saw this on twitter.
Looks exactly the same.
Pettanko, fujo, hick.
Yes; Kokoro ronned Mihirogi for 24000 on the last hand after this pic.
Why is Shinohayu so much more compelling than Saki?
thanks for the dump.
Sawaya dealt 3p in Kyouko's hand last chapter, but it was early, so i don't think that she could see that 3p was dangerous.
Here Kyouko doesn't go betaori, but tries to defend against Sawaya which was easy since she openly went for a pon palace honitsu >>133823732 discarding all the tiles in >>133823626 .
Sawaya is in tenpai for a 8 han hand, that's 24000 points as dealer (8000 all).
The kan was not pointless. It gives her an additional draw, puts the rivals even more in the defensive and gives the kamui more time to bring her a missing wind tile.
Saki reacts to the new dora (it gives her 4 dora) and the 4s should be Sawaya's discard (the replacement tile).
Kyouko must have a hidden yaku, perhaps three dragons or east wind tiles.
Saki here is in tenpai for 14m. With riichi and ippatsu it would still be 7 han (barring ura-dora, but Saki seldom gets them).
also lightning eye and fingers.
>So who will be the 5th member of their school team?
I guess a new member. Kyouka should go to the same middle school as Kanna and Shino (Hayari lives too far away). After that they could part ways (I think that Kyouka is interested in the family ryokan, so she may drop off school or go to a near high school).
She had luck.
We will see her in the middle school arc. Perhaps it will be short (or even a time skip), but she will have three more years with Kanna and Shino.
A-anon... I'll see middle school before I die
Alright guys I was finally able to get a marginally better scan than the version before of this picture from the Saki calendar.
It's not perfect but enjoy.
You are now aware that we could have got
* Jindai vs. Satoha vs. Yuuki vs. Naruka (but with a sleepy Jindai. Well, Suzu's bombings were also fun)
* Tomoe vs. Hao vs. Mako vs. Chikako (not changing much)
*Haru vs. Choe vs. Hisa vs. Yuan (wthout Hiroe, Hisa and Choe would have gained more points)
* Hatsumi vs. Megan vs. Nodoka vs. Yukiko (Hacchan exorcized by Yukiko or going on a rampage during her N wind seats, Megan sensing the ghosts...) probably more interesting than the actual chapter
* Kasumi vs. Nelly vs. Saki vs. Sawaya: We would lose magical girl Kyouko and her swift attacks and get a Kami vs. Kamui battle... Oh well, there are still the individuals.
