This tournament has just been absolutely incredible. Iâ€™ve been on the edge of my seat almost the whole time, even without knowing anything about Mahjong. Saki would draw a tile and I would get more excited, then some hand that I had no idea what it was would come together, even more excitement, then BOOM she would get all these points with some complicated thing I knew nothing about, but I would still just want to cheer with the characters. I think that just shows how involved this show has seemed to make me and how much it has dragged me in. Even without knowing the game I care about whether or not these characters win, and when complicated hands come together that would mean a great deal to the characters, I get excited. Itâ€™s been a while since any show has made me just cheer along the way. I just wanted so much for Saki to kick Koromoâ€™s ass. I would be chanting in my head, â€œCome on Saki, come on damn it, you can do it!â€ It really has been very exciting and entertaining to watch.
I am a bit curious and concerned with what they are going to do with the rest of the series now. Obviously there isnâ€™t enough room for the national tournament unless this show gets another season. Plus there are still plenty of things that need to happen before the tournament like another training camp, more information on Saki and her sister, not to mention plenty of time for the tournament and then for her sister issues to be solved. I really do hope this gets another season, as I havenâ€™t been this excited about a show in a long time, and Iâ€™m sure the national tournament and issues with Sakiâ€™s sister and some giant big sibling Mahjong game would be entertaining to see.
