Opening thoughts:

I'd still prefer sequel season of the original saki series, however! It seems like this is a continuation in the style of the original saki. If you liked the first series I think you couldn't miss checking this out. If you hated the main series, don't bother. It follows the spirit of the main series, that's all I can say for now.

Episode 1:

The new casts connection with (the main series') Nodoka is they are all girls that are very into mah-yong. Some decent drama and basic characterization with a lot of moe. The assemble of girls still needs deeper characterization to make me able to pass judgement on the current cast. Most of the time of the first episode was spend on establishing the main girls' drive on why they want to play in the tournament and keep playing it.

Does this cover it?

Indeed, I thought the first season was a reasonable success with good enough fans to have a sequel. Now this season might be like harking in new fans for the sequel of the original, but checking these anime' pages it also has a different studio working on it than the original Saki. Oh well, it is indeed hard to get over the fact.

I would suspect that this is a safer bet to air? But I cannot confirm this like I mentioned before.

Isn't this series picking up another school's journey to the nationals? I recokon that this team will end up at the same nationals as the team from the first series. I'm pretty sure the timing in terms of Nodoka's age is spot on. Then they can either finish this series with the nationals or have a third series with the nationals.

Only just noticed this was out... and while I'm annoyed they haven't done a sequel to the 1st I'm kinda happy I have more Saki to watch. Will check it out :)
