Saki ch170: Sweets & Biyori 63

The Saki live-action movie opened yesterday. Ritz made a short blog post with her early impressions. In short, she liked it, even the movie original scenes and the modified scenes. She only regrets that some parts of the manga had to be left out due to time constraints but she understands. It would be hard to summarize everything here so I'll skip it. No answers to reader's questions or anything like that this time.

OK, so let's move on with the new Saki chapter. Teru's flashback continues, as expected. I must say I'm really liking this flashback so far. Enjoy:

and a Saki Biyori chapter: Usuzan's Story 3. The last issue said there would be no chapter next time but there was one anyway (?).

Shinohayu ch41: Tailing

Chihiro is being hyped a lot lately. I'm looking forward to the Shimane Prefectural Tournament. I hope she doesn't disappoint. Shino vs Chihiro vs Aina vs Hayari would be a great match if it ever happens. Or maybe replace Hayari with Yue, the menhon master. But it's clear Yue will be against Kanna.

Saki ch169: Proof & Toki ch7: Ryuuka

Teru's chosen ones. It seems like this flashback will continue for a while, which is good of course. I'd like to know more about Teru. Enjoy:

and a new chapter of Toki with average quality scans. No mahjong this time but lots of drama.

Ritz-sensei's Blog Post 16.12.27

Ritz recently made a very long blog post where she talks a bit about the Saki live-action and answers a ton of readers' questions. This is a summary (it has nearly all the questions though). Any text in italics is mine, usually to clarify something. Everything else is a summarized translation of what Ritz says. It's quite long so most of it will go after the break.

Ritz's blog post 16.12.27

I've been busy lately. The volume corrections, additional pages, promo materials and the manuscript deadline all piled up. I had to give priority to the volume corrections and additional materials, so the serialized chapters suffered... I'm paying for my mistakes.

For the first time in a while, the next chapter will have the full number of pages and the screentone is there too but there's a part that could not be inked. Once again I'm sorry.

Shinohayu ch40: Individual Tournament

The Matsue City Individual Tournament and a hint about Sakane-sensei's true intentions. More on that on the chapter notes after the picture. Enjoy:

Shinohayu ch40 (Mediafire)
P.S: Ritz just made a huge blog post after several months of silence. I'll write a summary soon if someone is interested.

Chapter Notes
  • You might remember that in chapter 29 (page 29), Sakane-sensei mentioned Ondo Girls' in Hiroshima as the only middle school in the region to have a decent coach (an externally hired coach instead of just one of the school teachers). The bridge on the first panel of page 12 is the Ondo Bridge in the city of Kure in the prefecture of Hiroshima. Take a guess to which school Sakane-sensei went during her "vacation".
  • At the bottom of page 6, Wakana sort of apologizes after Kokoro says her future middle school (she's still in elementary school now) has a strict ban on cell phones. This is probably a hint that Kokoro will be going to the same middle school as Wakana. So what Wakana means is probably "well, excuse me for going to such a strict school".
