Saki Zenkoku-hen coming this January

Something more for me to look forward to this Winter.

Saki Zenkoku-hen PosterI don’t care that this was announced a while back. The fact that Saki 2 is coming sooner than expected brought tears to my eyes. 5 years of waiting (give or take) will soon come to an end. Sakura Trick AND Saki 2 in one season. I am crying manly tears of joy as I am typing this.

If for some reason they were to announce Yuru Yuri 3 and Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon 3 for Winter as well (one can dream), I would faint.

Off topic: I want to talk about “I Wanna be the Strongest in the World” for a bit. 3 episodes in and the show did something I thought was impossible. The show turned me into a smart mark. If I weren’t busy this week and the next, I would make a rant post about why that show is pissing me off when it clearly shouldn’t.

It amazes me how a show about ambiguously gay mahjong girls looks more like a professional wrestling anime than an anime about actual women’s wrestling.

    Don’t forget about Akuma Riddle (also winter if I am not mistaken)…
    This winter is gonna be hot…

    And about the wrestling…
    Well, maybe the manga is the better version (I am not sure, only read the 1st chapter), it is clear that the anime is doing poor job adapting the manga…
    Mostly I guess because Saki is focus on mahjong (or yuri or the craziness depend on person) while Sekai de focus too much on private part and moaning…
    Though I am waiting your blog as wrestler fans about this…

      I haven’t heard anything about Akuma no Riddle also being a Winter show. If it is, joy to the world!

      When I get enough free time I’ll post a rant about the wrestling anime. I guess I’ll check out the manga when I get the chance.

    wahaha, wahaha haha!

    That was my first reaction when I heard about this great new! xD

    But seriously, the thing remarkable about Saki is the sheer amount of distinct and memorable characters for one anime franchise! Beside the wahaha, there’s stealth momo, crazy-taco-loli, the ojou-sama with her chained up girlfriend (talk about yuri “bond” there!) the koromo, the Subara chick, the warm-and-cuddly yuu-nee-chan, the beloved Captain with her geass eye, the sick girl and her lap-pillow girlfriend, etc. etc.

    And let’s not forget the titular Saki and the equally titular Nodoka ( 😀 ) with their constant blushing and pinky promises, and exchanging “wedding” souvenirs. There’s a scene way back in episode one that I really like, when Nodoka was chasing Saki in the rain and she held on to her to catch her breath. They barely knew each other at the time yet their embrace was unexpectedly passionate. Like you stated it’s been some 5 years since then, but that particular scene is still crystal clear in my mind even now.

      Most, if not all these girls will hopefully make cameos. We know that both Achiga and Kiyosumi will be at the semi-finals but I want to see who Kiyosumi had to face to get there and of course, the mother of all final battles that will decide the fate of the universe.

      That rainy scene is one that cemented a yuri couple for the history books.

    Saki is one of those shows everyone talks about, but i still haven’t give a shot. I’ve read your G-View and a show about mahjong wrestling with lesbians should be at least great, hehe. As soon as i’m finished with Love Live! and Yuyushiki (goin’ really slow with this one), i’ll give Saki a try.

    And a question: Sakura Trick will air next season, right?

    Ps: Yuru Yuri season 3 would be totally AWESOME!

      Watch Saki as soon as you can.

      Yes. Sakura Trick is coming this January.

      More Yuruyuri is always good, especially if there SOME relationship progression…unlikely, but still…
