Saki ch172: Champion

As you can see, no problems with the raws this time. I was a little worried last week, but everything seems fine now. Also, starting this issue, there is a digital edition of Young Gangan, which really helps too. Anyway, last time we had a fully-inked, 100% complete chapter (yay!) but two in a row would be too much for us to bear so no luck.

Saki ch171: Fairness

You may be wondering why it took so long to translate this chapter. It's because there aren't any proper raws for it. Not yet, at least. Luckily, it was possible to stitch together a translation using various sources. However, keep in mind that this is a special case. If it becomes impossible to find raws, then this translation will have to stop. We'll see how it goes for the next chapter.

P.S.: It seems like a certain "bird-user" is famous during the Dawn of Teru era.

Shinohayu ch42: Prefectural Tournament

When the end of last chapter (published a month ago) said the Prefectural Tournament was one month away, it was meant to be taken literally!

The tournament bracket in this chapter has been fully translated. As usual in Shinohayu, the names for the schools are taken from real life locations (but not real life middle schools) in their corresponding cities or towns. They belong to places like railway stations, shrines, parks, etc. By looking up these names in a map, it's possible to know in which part of Shimane Prefecture each school is located.

Probably, most of these schools won't play any big role in the story but just for completion here's a list of schools and cities if anyone is curious.

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.
