Winning a game of Mahjong is hard; getting the same score every time is practically impossible. So imagine the surprise of the school Mahjong club when Saki Miyanaga walks in and does just that.

But even then, will their combined skills be enough to overturn some of the toughest high school players the country has to offer?
