Big Gangan is out. Dumping Toki 9 raw.
unfortunately, she did not submit the paperwork to participate in the big mahjong tournament
Youko and Shinji have other club activities which interfere with mahjong
suddenly, crazy twin grabs a bunch of scoring sticks and correctly guesses their point value
the twins can't decide which is the onee-san and which is the imouto
Toki struggles with overcoming shyness with the new girls
Youko and Shinji are closer to Toki.
But Ryuuka is the closest.
making friends through mahjong
Rare find: Season tiles! (they're used in 3P?)
captain has no problem beating the 5th graders (Toki / Youko)
now shit starts getting weird
What is this drawing about..
"If Shimizudani-san is a shamisen..." (?)
"...Vargrapeed is breathless." (?)
need a better TL
reference to mythological figures?
then "You should be able to please..."
There were two failed Teru birthday threads and a failed leaks thread (http://boards.4chan.org/a/thread/153817899/saki-tanoshii).
That's all for February since Akio's last release.
This captain seems to have evil intentions for exploiting Ryuuka.
End Toki 9. No delay; chapter 10 on 3/25
Kentani birthday girl.
Riko Yasufuku 2/19
Ritz needs to fill in some of the empty calendar spaces with the recent new characters in all 3 main series.
It has been dead since the live action movie was released.
Even futaba was slow in February.
It's weird when there are often 2-3 characters sharing birthdays when there are several long gaps in the calendar.
That's not weird at all. Certain days are more common because approximately nine months earlier is some special day like valentines or new years. Happier people = more impregnations.
Teru baked you a valentine - then ate it herself.
Shinohayu 42: Prefectural Tournament
the smart ones
the crazy ones
the waifu ones
dinner with the Richardsons
Shino is starting to look very mature; less girlish
Shino invites Richardson to the tournament.
However, it is on the opposite end of Shimane prefecture (~ 2 hours).
Uncle says it was the same distance in Iwami prefecture where he grew up.
Richardson insists he will go!
He will go by car; Shino will go by train with the team.
Shino - "Wow"
Kanna impressed with the other schools
Kanna is awed by the venue.
Rena remarks that Shino and Hayari have been to similar places before.
I really need to sit down and read Shinohayu one day. Thanks for the dump anyway guy, dumping is pretty tedious to do with these post timers.
Rena says Shino shouldn't be nervous after going to ES Zenkoku, but Shino says she is always nervous at tournaments.
There is no general audience seating at this venue; instead each team has a private viewing room. Kanna speculates about the level of privacy; Kyouka wonders what she's scheming.
Rena also wants to do perverted things; buchou forbids it.
Coach discusses team strategy. Play order was randomly drawn? (TL)
Rio Takuwa (!) is vanguard.
Kanna = sergeant
Kyouka = lieutenant
Hayari = vice-captain
Shino = captain
Rio enjoying her moment of glory.
She earned her spot by doing well at morning practices. (maybe they will switch in someone else later)
I'm Google translating these real time, so the timer is not the limiting factor.
Rio is concerned about taking Shizuku's spot after she did so well in the city tournament.
Shizuku has some gracious words, but her tears betray her disappointment.
"The tournament matchups have been announced. Vanguards please report for your 1st round matches."
Damn... this is a quickie 2 round tournament. Win 2 consecutive matches and you get to go to Tokyo?
Buchou tries to say something inspirational, but again reveals her sadness about not playing.
iPad photo of PC monitor-> Google translate app (OCR)
"Let's go Yumachi!"
Richardson and his friend (the pawn shop guy) arrive.
Yeah, ok. It's just that OCR does make a fair bit of mistakes, if you just directly input into translate without at least checking the capture it tends to result in nonsense sometimes.
Some gag between the guys about finding a place to watch.
Suddenly: "The block D match is over! With 3 consecutive 1st place finishes .... reigning champion Komosawa MS advances to the final."
.. so it's the same rules as the city tournament
"With the shortest travel, Komosawa goes to the final."
sidebar: a huge wall before the national tournament.
end Shinohayu 42. Next chapter 3/25
FWIW, Yumachi (湯町中) is in block C, so they are not dead yet.
Also, winning here takes you straight to Tokyo...
...but there used to be another tourney before MS Zenkoku.
>Sorry we're having a hotpot.
>No no, it's fine.
>I have to say, the rice is really good today.
>Well, you see, this is Koshihikari from Okuizumo, apparently.
>Kyouka-chan's mom got some and shared with us
>I'll have to thank her sometime.
>By the way, about that white box in the fridge...
>By the way, about tsukume and tsumire...
types of meatballs
>Oh sorry, go on.
>They're made differently.
>There's a cake in that box.
>I bought it in Matsue during the day.
>Really, that much?
>I wonder if I started enjoying sweets now because I've grown up?
>Isn't that the other way around?
>Don't kids usually like sweets more?
>Send me the schedule of your next match by mail or something, alright?
>I'll drop by before work to cheer on you.
>I'm glad to hear that, but...
>Apparently the venue is around two hours away by car or train...
>Although... I guess when I was in high school the prefecturals happened at places like Matsuda or Iwami as well, huh. (Shimane's pretty long)
>So, you don't have to force youself.
>I WILL COME!
>I'll do my best at the match as well.
>Should I drive you to the venue?
>We were all going to go by train.
>Well then, should I at least drop you off at the meeting place?
>You don't have to, it's embarassing...
>Oh man, I'm getting nervous because of all those other schools.
>There were other schools in the city tournament too, you know.
>Well, maybe it's because it's a higher level of venue, so...
>These two don't seem that affected to me though.
>I mean, you were even at the national level, right?
>Well, I guess...
>We were with our guardians though.
>I'd say stuff that gets you nervous always gets you nervous.
>I don't see the audience room anywhere, though.
>Oh, this place has separate waiting rooms prepared for every school.
>A private room huh? That'll be useful in the dealings...
>As if you have any deals to make.
>We can even do some raunchy stuff!..
>Well then, while Nozu's drawing the lots, let's confirm the order.
>I've made some adjustments to the roster based on the results of your training over the last month.
>Vanguard: Takuwa (EEH?)
>ME WHY! (SCARY IT'S!)
>Your sentence is in reverse.
>It's because Yamamoto told me.
>While I was studying for my university exams and looking at others practicing.
>Well, I've noticed, you see...
>Rio being happy about winning happened way more often during morning practice than in the afternoon.
>Then I checked with the club records and found this out.
>If you only look at the records from morning practice, you're the third best one in the club, Takuwa.
>That's why I thought you'd do fine as a vanguard.
>Although it is a bit later than our usual morning practice time.
>Now I'm curious who the #1 and #2 are...
>I'm kind of happy, but won't this be a large shock to the president?
>I-I got to hear it before the match, so...
>Your voice is getting tearful!
>Now announcing the tournament brackets based on the lottery results.
>We ask of every team's vanguard to proceed to the designated room (Our girls are in C)
>Everyone, make a circle...wait
>I'm not even playing!
>We aren't either.
>What kind of circle?
>The one where you huddle up with your shoulders, one where you pile on your hands or the one where you put your hands on your knees?
>It's time to make our work pay off!
>Let's go, Yumachi Middle!
>Did we make it? *pant*
>No, we definitely didn't make it!
>Not only did we oversleep, we even went up the wrong road, what horrible luck.
>No, that was all you!
>So... where are we supposed to go?
>Some place that looks like an audio-visual room with a bunch of pipe chairs lined up.
>After that is the entrance.
>The first match in the D room is over!
>Isn't that too fast?
>The reigning champion school, Komosawa Middle!
>With 3 consecutive 1st places!
>In the fastest way possible they advance to the finals!
I'l be busy for a while, so expect Toki somewhat later in the day.
...despite last month's promo.
Get well, Saya, i guess.
Big Gangan monthly on the 25th.
It's like Ritzmas every month.
You don't have to explain that, explain why the fuck we should stop using it.
Hugs, sweets and/or impregnations.
Remember to Yakuman responsibly.
Ok so I'm looking at the Toki scans and for some pages I can barely tell apart what's written. I'll probably wait until the good raws drop on nyaa and make another thread if this one dies.
I have this.
Chapter 9: Club Entry.
>Welcome to the mahjong club!
>Congratulations on entering!
>But we, uh.
>We're just provisional members here to observe the club...
>We know, we know!
>But even provisional entry is still a new entry, isn't it?
>The supernova we hoped for suddenly turned into four new members!
>Thank you, Ryuuka-chan!
>Thanks for going out of your way to visit such a weak mahjong club!
>We were really looking forward to everyone coming to our clubroom!
>Especially Ryuuka-chan, who we're obsessed with.
>Wait a little, Tae-chan!
>We bought the stuff for the party with the club funds too.
>Isn't that stupid?
>We didn't even know for certain you'd be coming at allmgh
reality vs. manga
Shimane coastal rail line
>Shimizudani-san, that last win in that match made me simply shiver.
>You can, without a doubt.
>Become our pillar (us spelt as mahjong club)
>But all four of us are here as provisional members...
>Oh, that's right, my bad...
>They're Onjouji-san, Ayumi-chan and Nogami-chan.
>Thank you all for coming to observe us!
>Let's all try to get better at mahjong, little by little!
>And she told me I'd become a regular player right away...
>Even though I got such a comeback baiman then...
>About the S2 win.
>If you didn't drop the 1 Pin there and dropped the dora 7 pin instead you would've had a 3-sided tenpai.
>Since you drew an 1-pin on the next turn, had you called riichi, with an ippatsu it would've been a...
>Sanbaiman for 24000
>You were fooled by the dora in front of your eyes.
>You didn't notice the possibility of that, did you?
>Well, it's just hindsight anyway.
>Back then she couldn't land a direct baiman and make a comeback.
>Besides, you didn't get discouraged even despite not winning for quite a while.
spelt that way in furigana, not sure if intentional mistaking of the name or typo, your strong will is your greatest weapon.
>Let's aim for the top together!
>But even if I say that,
>The registration deadline for the official tournament is already over!
>In other words, the regionals.
>If only you joined earlier...
>Now I'll have to wait until next year to show you how cool I am, what a shaaaame...
>It was a total loss in our first rounds for all of us.
>Pres is in her 6th year this year, you see.
>That's why our club activities will just be leisurely playing with each other two days a week. (On the Tuesday and the Friday)
Assuming Yumachi advances to the final, it will probably be necessary to reshuffle the lineup to match up against Komosawa.
Rio and Kanna would probably get busted, and it would be up to Kyouka to stave off elimination. Assuming Hayari and Shino win, it would almost be necessary for Kyouka to win to avoid elimination on points.
Of course, it's possible that Rio pulls a miracle and Kanna has a personal comeback from her bad showing at the city tourney.
>We are already in other clubs, so if there was practice every day it would only be problematic for us.
>Since this amount of time is okay with us, we can join too.
>We didn't tell you? I'm in the handicrafts club, Wed/Thu.
>And I'm in the basketball club, Mon/Wed.
>Both of those are two days a week, huh? (Handicrafts...)
>I thought we'd have activities like 5 days a week.
>What's the point in that when there's just 3 of us anyway...
>Kurachi Chie, member 1
>Kurachi Tae, member 2
>That's just how it is with clubs in the elementary.
>All of the girls who earnestly want to play mahjong are in the club.
>President Yokeguchi, member 3
>But weren't there a lot of girls observing that match back then?
>That's because that was "The match for Ryuuka-chan's friendship"
>Obviously a lot of people would gather.
>But wasn't I the bet?
>Hm? Did they even play during this year?
>So when you said I'd become a regular player right away...
>Even if we can't participate in the official tournament, we can just play training matches with other teams, so it's fine!
>We can just have fun at mahjong with everyone here
Wahaha in the background
>Since I don't really like the harsh world where you must defeat others...
>Already assuming you'll be the one who defeats, you have some impressive confidence, Ryuuka-chan.
>You're wrong! I didn't mean it like that! I meant I don't like being defeated myself!
>Who exactly is there to defeat you?
>Since we began doing the exchange dictionary.
>Ryuuka-chan started sometimes doing stuff like that not just in the dictionary, but also while talking.
>Even if it's just a tiny thing like that.
>It really warms my heart for some reason
>Since it gets boring during club practice I play around like this.
>You think I'll be able to do this after entering?
>You won't, you won't.
>Chie-chan had good finger senses
lewdsince long ago.
>Wait, Chie-chan, Tae-chan...
>Chie-chan is my precious little sister!
>No, you're the little sister here, Tae-chan.
>Isn't the one who gets born first the little sister?
>That's just a tradition!
had to google, apparently it really is
>Normally the one to be born first is the older sister!
>So they're twins? That's so cute.
>Toki-chan, you're being more quiet than usual today, are you alright?
>I'm not really that good.
>When it comes to talking with strangers.
>What are you talking about? You immediately started talking to me and Shin-chan!
>Well, I don't know...
>Maybe you two are just really easy to talk to...
>Transparent flattery like that will get you nowhere!
>But you know.
>The easiest one to talk to is Ryuuka-chan.
>For me you're the easiest to talk to as well, Toki-chan!
>You two over there!
>We're having a tonpuusen, go draw the seat order!
>This match doubles as a self-introduction, so you don't have to be so nervous about it.
>I've never played 3P before...
>It's really easy, way easier than 4P. Here are the rules.
>Playing 3P is what got me into thinking mahjong was interesting in the first place.
>Ryuuka-chan's grandma was crazy strong.
>It was harsh, but also fun.
>Now that I remember, in that one round...
>I felt like talking to Ryuuka-chan became that much easier.
>Youko and Shin-chan too...
>the reason behind that?
>President Yokeguchi, too... (Oh, I got one flower tile! Lucky!)
>Tae-chan and Chie-chan, too...
>If we all play mahjong together, will we become good friends?
>Um, what do I do with these?
>Oh, these are nuki-dora, put them away here and draw new tiles for your hand.
>Wait, three flower tiles already? That's dirty.
>My hand and the draw are so nice~
>It's all showing on her face again.
>Pres, that's a pon!
>Don't rush so much, Onjouji.
>Tanyao pinfu 1 dora. 3900.
>Ryuuka-chan really is strong.
>Even though you're wasted on weaklings like our team, I'm really glad you all joined.
>I just want Toki-chan and the others to enjoy mahjong, it's fine if we're doing this so leisurely.
>But what did the president mean about me becoming a pillar?
>I thought this'd be a large pain.
>D-don't mind that!
>It's just that we're not dependable!
>Oh damn, I hoped to welcome them but ended up winning like that. (I ended up drawing a dora, so)
>President is strong~
>Oh! You didn't drop my winning tile! Good job!
>Obviously I'd be at least this careful.
>You had pretty much no sou tiles in your discards, after all.
>Nogami-san, you're pretty good at reading the game.
>That doesn't even count as reading.
>Shin-cha... I mean Shinji-san is way better than me...
>Hey, Shinji-san. Play the next one with me.
>Be careful on your way back, everyone!
>Thank you very much!
>We'll be in your care from now on!
>It's our pleasure.
>From now on...
>It's us who'll be in your care for a lot of things.
>And now, finally.
>We've come to an agreement with them.
>Just like I predicted, Shimizudani-san swallowed it hook, line and sinker.
>If it's Shimizudani-san, she can do it...
>The Evil Stars of Vagrapede.
>She should be able to entertain them.
>Plus, the other girls are going to be pretty useful as well.
>Let's all do our best.
>So, once again.
>Welcome to the mahjong club.
>Congratulations on joining.
Onjouji Toki, summer of the 5th grade in elementary school.
Just "one turn ahead" after her joining, a disturbing presence...
Okay guys, not going to lie. I started off kind of lukewarm about this spinoff, started enjoying it as it went on, but now I'm positively, absolutely hyped for what lies ahead.
I'm trying to mentally voice the "Aratamete... youkoso, maajanbu e. Nyuubu omedetou" and it's giving me the chills. What a fantastic ending for the chapter.
Those are some extremely chuuni hoodies too.
thanks for the TL
on behalf of all 12 of us in t/a/noshii
In the Saki era, exploiting the private rooms is expected.
A certain character has been missing from the franchise for the past 3 months.
One last thing before bed: searching for ヴァグラピードmentioned in this chapter doesn't get any results, which the Japanese commented on as well. Must be a made-up name. I went with Vagrapede for the time being, we'll see how correct that is in the future.
yes, these are 5th graders
mahjong aliens from the depths of outer space
the first Toki power is three armies
future sight comes later
a zombie Toki army sounds cool though
maybe coach is using Rio in a sacrificial role, like Subara
Anyone have a link to the Fatalizer TL?
Someone did it a year or two ago.
It easy to find but here
