The Captain Quarterfinals Match (Part II) – On Saki and Kyouko

This post is dedicated to Sol Falling and Fantasy Magician regarding their comments on Saki vs. Kyouko.

This tournament gives rise to many interesting dynamics between the teams. This is because a team can fight another team twice. How will the loser feel about the winning team? How will the winning team feel about the team they beat? Simply, put it allows something resembling a relationship to form between the opponents even before they fought. A history to speak. And I actually like the one that potential conflict that managed to form between Saki and Kyouko.

Saki – What do you see? (Part II – A comparison with Onee-chan)

This is in response to a question posed by kappa145 about Saki’s senses. And yes, she does have a sensing power. Its blatantly obvious by now in the manga. Of course no one actually notices or they look at it as unimportant because hey! look a this! Flashy amazing lightning spewing flower blooming Rinshan!

So yeah, Saki’s other abilities often went unnoticed. This will be an exploration of her sensing ability. ūüėÄ

Saki Drama CD and its implications

I recently came across an old drama CD. And it has a very interesting snippet about Saki and Teru.
