Animes, Photography and everything in between… Pfft..

Saki. Slumber Sunday. Don’t come to NaNeee?! to solve incest problems please.

Remember my last post? I mentioned how I supported “intellectual” animes. Well, Saki is one.


Miyanaga Saki is a first year high school girl whose family would get angry if she won the family mahjong games. But losing would also have its consequences. Because of this she develops a new way of playing that allows her to stay on the thin line between winning and losing, the +/- zero score, an almost impossible score. In a game that relies mainly on luck, the +/- zero score is harder than winning, but Saki can achieve this every time. Having always hated the game, her friend from middle school, Suga Kyotoro, forces her to play in the schools mahjong club. Her developed skill and superhuman luck has made her a worthy mahjong opponent, even to the middle schools national mahjong champion.

Throughout the course of the anime, I have learned about Majong, Mahjong, Mahjong. And Boobs. And Penguin. Deciding to share what I’ve learned, here is a brief summary.

Mahjong is a game played by 4 people. Ideally 4 high school girls.

If situation calls, you can have 1 male player in the game. But that game would suck. Unless you were that male character.

To begin playing Mahjong, players first roll 2D6’es using what seems like the coolest Mahjong table ever.

After that, players will randomly pick up 4 tiles, without regards to the dice roll whatsoever (since they didn’t bother explaining it in the anime). Apparently, the dice rolling thing is just for fancy… and maybe Yahtzee.

Then each player take turns and goes around grabbing any tiles they want, followed by discarding another one from their hand (since they didn’t bother explaning it in the anime).

Mahjong is apparently a very easy game, seeing how everyone always have good tiles. And is only missing 1 tile to win the game 99% of the time. Players should always wear protectice gloves when man-handling the tiles. As Saki has shown, the tiles will often form lightning, fire, flood and ice.

Or, you can do it the cool way. And practice exposing your fingers to the above mentioned elements. That way, when you do draw a winning tile and it lights up with flames, you’d still be able to hold it hard before slamming it down on the Mahjong table. I’m not sure how they do that though (since they didn’t bother explaning it in the anime). But when you do it, you’d be so pimping.

Oh shit! She’s PimP!

Keep repeating the draw and discard stop above until you form something presentable and then say “Tsumo” or “Ron”. You will then have won. The amount you have won would be according to the opponents reaction to your tiles. If they are amazed, you will be given more points. If not, measly sum then. I guess… (since they didn’t bother explaining it in the anime).

And there you have it, a beginners guide to Mahjong in the animes. A simple, fun and entertaining game for you and your family. Definitely a good game for promoting family loving.

If you don’t know by now, the above IS NOT a proper way to play Mahjong. It’s not even a proper guide. Initially it would have been a 5-Star, I had lots of fun watching this shit. But I decided to drop it a notch, and (since they didn’t bother explaining it in the anime) I decided not to explain why either. Lol! Get it?

Favorite Character obviously get’s big screen-time!

Winning Mahjong feels soOOooOooo good.

Rating: 4-Stars
More Info:

*Seriously though I used to play a little Mahjong IRL. I’d often lose… money… big time. Hence “used to”.

I couldn’t find a good ending theme video, so I hope you guys can settle with this. LMAO!!!

Oh wait… I’m supposed to have learned something about penguins.

I just did. 😉


Was suppose to go Shah Alam Mall to shop for some lens filter and camera bag. Some things came up. etc. etc. etc.
One thing led to another and next thing I knew, I was in another shopping mall at a totally different area with Razrig@Baka-Steam.
Instead of shopping, I ended up taking a few cos-play photos. Lol!

Slumber Sunday indeed.

A little “RazRig was here!” shot. Lol!

Feel free to browse the rest of the photos at Slumber Sunday flickr.

A roadshow hosted by a popular local radio Dj also took place at the mall and I guess I was just at the right place at the right time. But more on this next post. Don’t want to kill your bandwidth with a sudden flood of photos. Lol!


And so, to end the day…

Yes… Rejoice. For now, NaNeee?! has become a site to visit to solve incest problems in Japan.
Keep an eye out, I might even run for office soon. -.-”

  2. uh oh, I’m vaguely reminded of a certain ‘cripple fuck’ term… Awell, incest is a lot tamer than that, looks like your viewers haven’t warped to that degree yet :p

    I always thought that sports and game anime were always the most ridiculous. Which made them fun to watch. I mean, elemental mahjong pieces? fck yea.

    Especially that one show with the children’s card game where people play on top of moving trains, or while on motorcycles, your soul is the ante,and where people kidnap you and agree to let you free if you beat them. Oh, and where DEATH himself plays card games with you to determine the fate of the world. I mean, if this is the result of losing, you know children’s card games are srs bizness.

  3. Hahaha incest problem in japan…..actually, there is an incest problem in Japan….people there seem to love incest (or at least the idea of it).

    Anyway, Saki. I watched the first episode, then put on hold to try and learn majong (I don’t even know how to spell it, let alone play it). I played for a few days, and sort of got it. Then I tried watching the anime again, and was completely confused. I had forgotten about it, but now I will watch it (even if they don’t bother explaining it).

    Loll. That is one funny and helpful guide.
    I played a little Mahjong as well irl. I don’t understand some of Saki’s rules though and we play with a slightly different point system. But since the anime doesn’t bother explaining, I didn’t think too much about it.

    Hehe, judging by your search terms, this is going in the right direction.

    Cam lent to a fren. Lol. But will be ready by Sunday! RawRR!!!

    Lol. That’s some serious business synopsis.
    And just to let you know, it’s true. I (We) used to play TCG’s like our soul’s on the line. And to lose is to fall to the bottomless abyss.

    Lol. You should watch it even if it’s just for the penguin. Xp
    Ok… maybe not the penguin, but the Club President character is pretty darn cool.

    helpful? Lol. Ok that does it! I’m gonna run for office!

    Hmm.. actually I wonder how’s Mahjong played in the US.
    From what I know, there are Taiwanese Mahjong, Hong Kong Mahjong, Japanese Mahjong. Each played with their own set of rules. Here we use Hong Kong Mahjong. No. Wait. Fark. I don’t even know which rules we go by. Lol!
