Quick First Impressions – Saki


I was able to watch Saki yesterday after my friends left my house and I didn’t expect it to be so good. Honestly, I know NOTHING about mahjong so when I was watching this and learning some new and unfamiliar terms like Riichi, Ron, Dora and etc. I was so confused!

I’m sure those who find mahjong interesting would like to watch this show. 😉

Nonetheless, I was rather surprised that this was a Gonzo creation because it didn’t suck at all. It was catchy, you know? The characters are not all that amazing but their amusing to watch and I can get into the flow so as long as it’s like that I’m surely going to love this.I’m looking forward to the next episode now. ^^

See what I mean by quick? XD

EDIT: I think this one’s going of be one of the 3 shows that I’m planning to separately blog. Spring has been quite a disappointment so I’m glad I’ll just blog a few.

    I didn’t expect Saki to be so enjoyable either! : D

    I’ve heard that if you actually know something about mahjong that it’s actually pretty crappy though…glad I don’t know the first thing about it! xD

    I was also pleasantly surprised by the humor.

    As someone who does play mahjong casually, I’ll say that the game they play relates to mahjong much the same as any sports anime. Saying their game is unrealistic to me is much like ridiculing the tennis in Tennis no Ouji-sama; obviously no one can really play like that, but it’s still funny as long as you don’t take it seriously.

    @kelakagandy Yes! I know! Right now, Saki’s probably on the top of my list. still haven’t seen Hatsukoi Gentei and Eden of the East.

    I guess the reason why some people who actually play mahjong find this uninteresting because they know that what Saki’s doing is inhumane or whatever you can call that. Another reason could be is that they just find it too unrealistic than inhumane.

    @teiglin Oh yes, the humor! It was a great thing that actually encouraged me too you know!

    Yes, I agree. People shouldn’t always take things so seriously and overlook the important points in a series. Some just judge too easily. They should’ve thought right from the beginning that animes don’t always relate to real life(meaning there can be supernatural things too).

    And one shall never ridicule Tennis no Ouji-sama because it’s win for me. 😉
