Saki is a manga adaptation originally written Ritz Kobayashi.

I read the manga and really enjoyed it. I was looking forward to the anime. However I really struggled with it. The story is good. Saki Miyanaga is a inverted girl who is very good at Mahjong due to having to play it with her family every year. Her gift is that she can always get 0 on a game. One people learn this, she is dragged into the school club to learn how to use her skill to actually beat other players and win the tournament. Not to mention fulfil her dream of being able to defeat her sister in a game of Mahjong without being punished for it. Along with a cast of mostly girls and a lot of implied Yuri.

Here is the problem for me. I’m fine with Yuri. I’m fine with Yaoi. However these girls look like they are still in junior school to me. The whole thing just sets of paedophilia bells in my mind almost as bad as Kuroshitsuji 2. My main issue is with the pink haired girl Nodoka Haramura. Her boobs are giant. She’s 15/16 but to me the style of the comic makes her look more like 12/13. Now in a manga big boobs are fine, just part of the scenery. In the animation because of how they animate them, its genuinely a little disturbing for me and I just could not watch it any longer. Especially when during a rain scene her top goes see though and well. No.

Saki is a really good story about a group of girls who want to win a mah-jong tournament but to me is ruined by someone’s insane idea to give a 15 year old K cup size boobs and make the other girls grope them. Its basically soft porn at times and its not appreciated by me. Not at all. Stone
