'Tis rare that I get two shows I've been looking forward to for this long in one season. Well, gotta comment on Saki also. First characters. The ones that matter.

Saki - A bit more 'sassy' than the manga, but voiced well for the additional sass
Nodocchi - Crap I didn't think she would look so pink! Her hair's not THAT pink dammit! Voice is a bit soft for Nodocchi but still works pretty well. AND WHY'S THE PENGUIN BLACK!!! :mad:
Yuki - Rie Kugimiya works well for the annoying taco-lover. She's playing to much the -tans though. Makes her more annoying than she's supposed to be.
Kyotaro - He's a bit player. Played well.
Hisa - Good. No complaints
Mako - Ditto

Overall an okay start. Nodocchi's way too pink and it's a little more upbeat music-wise than I imagined though. Not as big of a fan of the longer explanations, but I guess it works to teach. I wish I didn't have to listen to it though. This one should turn out fine from what I've seen so far. Gets


For now. Good start for both series though. I couldn't care less if all the other shows this season are crap if Saki and Phantom turn out good.

I liked it.
I have no idea how that game is played but I suppose I will learn.
The ridiculous boobs on Nodo-chan felt out of place but I am unfamiliar with the manga so whatever... wet t-shirt.
I'll be watching.

Nodocchi's breasts are just a thing they put in the manga; it's not really played out like most ecchi manga would. If you think they're intrusive now, just wait till you see her start carrying the penguin around under her arm. Or you see Nodocchi in her skimpy negligee and wings.

Was pretty good first episode. I mean, it's obviously not a very serious anime, but I found my self liking a lot of it. Looking up the japanese terminology for mahjongg, cause with Akagi and saki going, I just need to know a bit more about what the heck is happening.

Same. Watching these kind of shows always makes me want to learn the game.

I was very surprised after seeing this, especially since it's my first anime that deals with some kind of "game" like Mahjong. It kept me interested and I'm anxious to see next week's episode. Saki is by far the most interesting of the lot thus far, next in line would be the student council president, she's just as interesting.

Wait till you see how she makes Nodocchi a better player, and you'll see Nodocchi in her full form . . . ;p
