Saki 171 translation is out. Dumping.
summer uniforms for flashback Shiraitodai 1.0!
left to right: Unozawa Shiori, Tanahashi Natsuki, Okidoi Ran, Hirose Sumire, Miyanaga Teru, Watanabe Rune
The request: Will Teru coach the other members of the club?
The girls Teru hand picked for her super team are backing out on her.
The outcome will test whether Teru's people instinct is as strong as her mahjong coaching skill.
Can Teru's A-team beat the rest of Shiraitodai when coached by Teru?

Ritz completed all of the art in this chapter!
early results: The original Team Teru is still the best.
Except maybe Rune, who seems to have a rivalry with Yamada (the other girl here: >>154447312).
Shiori tries to imitate Saki; ends up pulling a Maho.
Natsuki dissing the rinshan attempt.
Teru defends the rinshan (and Saki?!).
Also, a bird reference to Shino!
Sumire coaxes Teru to play.
Teru is still dealing with her mahjong PTSD.
>less than a week to the next chapter
What a time to be alive.
more good news:
Young Gangan will start digital release of some of its titles on the day of publication, beginning with the next issue 3/17. This includes 咲-Saki!
Hopefully this will improve access to raws.
bingo items for next chapter?
Teru version of (pic); begin flashback within flashback; Goldfish speaks; Goldfish name revealed; Miyanaga mom; Teru loses a match; Teru destroys Shiraitodai; Teru flips from passive mode to Angry Teru; start of the Shiraitodai cult of Teru worship; useless Shiraitodai coach resigns; flash forward through 1st two Shiraitodai Zenkoku wins; Shinohayu cameo; return to present day Zenkoku
a few missed birthdays:
Senoo Kaori (3/7); Jindai Komaki (3/8); Sawamura Tomoki (3/10);
waiting for all of Teruhayu's references to rinshans and Saki to pay off
How much of the 5th place match gets skipped during the Teruhayu flashback?
enough material for a 照-Teru spinoff manga
>mahjong, pancakes, and little sister
Saki sighting in chapter 172 guaranteed.
>Were live action ep4/movie subbed?
No to both. Ep4 raw has been out forever. The movie is still in theaters, so probably no raw until the BD release.
>almost 2 years since Kuro's Birthday OAV
>still no subs
>Saki: 16 volumes; 3 cour of anime
>Achiga: 6 volumes; 1 cour of anime
>Shinohayu: 7 volumes; no anime
People are just late anon, give them time to pop up and read the chapter. Also it's kinda early maybe, so that too.
Chapter was nice, been itching for more Saki since I feel like it's been ages since we had content.
Damn. Teru ate all of that huge pile of snacks that Sumire put on the table.
Though I wonder what happened to the empty wrappers.
>a kan and rinshan kaihou is scary
But if Teru always beat Saki, why is Teru afraid?
Teru has the eyes of a hungry shark.
>Sukoyan: "More like two years..."
I hope we see a glimpse of Teru's 1st zenkoku. She must destroy whoever the reigning champion is.
Remember these two? One of them is the title character. How many chapters has it been since she's been even in one frame?
I feel like there is a strong similarity with Saki and Girls und Panzer. Both series have a large cast of girls from different schools, they compete against each other in some grand tournament.
I dunno if that is an obvious similarity but I never really compared the two until recently.
Yes that's true, but you have to admit the similarities go beyond tropes.
A young, modest girl is mysteriously competent at X. X club members notice her and she gets recruited.The girl has an older sister who is regarded as a prodigy, and whom she does not get along with. The younger sister helps bring her club to a national stage where she can confront her sister in competition and hopefully make amends.
I'm being a bit general but the beats are very similar.
or Shino drawn by Ritz?
The last Vita game (2015) was made by Kaga Create, which went bankrupt.
The new game (2017) is by Entergram.
>Saki Zenkoku-hen the PS Vita game has a sequel
