The Toki meme is real.
The tokimeki is real.
Meme magic truly at work here.
This from newest Big gangan right? That means Shinohayu leaks are here?
Couple image yeah. Check the previous thread.
I knew they were lesbians.
Big Gangan needs to be renamed Ritz Gangan if this keeps up.
Ritz already has them by the balls, did you read her latest blog post? She's calling all the shots.
What did she say?
What tipped you off?
It's about time SQUENIX make a Gangan Ritz/Ritz Gangan.
It was about how her plans to cover the match for 5th place always met a sour reception.
But in the end, she prevailed and now we're getting loser-hen and we're gonna eat it up and like it.
Ritz knows what the people want.
All she needed to do to convince them was say "There will be more Toki."
Great. I love Toki.
Will buy this as a result and throw some money towards Ritz again.
To be fair I think the sour reaction was from the anime staff. The Gangan staff probably don't even get to hear about Ritz' plans.
I can imagine anime staff wants Ritz to hurry the fuck up so they can finish.
The digit ratio.
They'll animate two seasons of Tokihayu and a full length Biyori movie before the final.
is this about mahjong?
I think there is a need for this loser-hen given that Himematsu, Senriyama, Shindouji have been well received. It prolongs the life of the franchise and allows for more opportunities for spinoffs to thrive.
I don't mind so long as it's Toki doing Toki things.
I agree. But coupled with the premise that we get like 10 pages of Saki per month it's pretty horrible for the readers.
you know what, i like Saki but i dropped it because of mahjong.
So does that mean we won't unto da finals until 2020?
Nobody care about achiga or kiyosumi. I bet toki is going to somehow end up being more popular than the main series
Either that or we'll see "Nara tournament" coverage.
Is Toki dying at the mahjong table going to be a couch gag for her series?
The spin-off was brought into existence by the concentrated essence of toki threads, so chances are high that it will be stained by the shadow of death.
Toki only got her ability in high school, so that means she only started tokying at high school right?
It'll be a badass story where Toki is just an average mahjong player that wants to be with her friends at the mahjong club, but she ended up having to acquire the power to protect her friends by literally gambling with her own life through her newly gained ability to see into the future.
protect her friends
The evil that is Terut ime
This one is a dark creature though.
Didn't know you had access to internet in the bottom of Suwa-lake.
Hey, I can stream here all I want.
Pure gold, fish, pure gold.
Achiga spinoff when?
Come on Ritz, Shizu deserve better.
Does the Toki spinoff prove that the weakest will survive?
What do you want? A yama susume version of Shizu climbing mountains and playing mahjong?
Not that I'm against it.
<--- She's next.
To get a spinoff?
It will explore her origins, hinting that she came from distant space or even from what you would call a different dimension.
And it will be titled "Far, Far Awai":
The next spin-off is going to be about sweets.
And it will be titled "Far, Far Awai":
Haters gonna hate
No wai in hell.
What is she telling her?
"Just so you know, I play the piano."
I think I get it but maybe I don't get it.
Her fingers have a lot of strength and coordination.
Her fingers have a lot of strength and coordination.
strength and coordination.
Toki is unironically the best protag in Achiga-hen.
Harue is the protag of Achiga though.
Dating 50 year old idols!
Technically Ritz only said 'a meeting about anime'. She didn't specify who else attended that meeting. And because Saki is an adaptation I think at least her editor from Gangan attended the meeting to represent the publishing company.
Future Ritz chapter probably gonna talk about this.
For the user.
yfw Achiga gets another spin-off
Has this already been posted by the way?
What did Igarashi say in that tweet?
What is Igarashi doing?
another picture from Igarashi
Google TL: The other day the image name gave sent to the representative said certain schoolgirl cartoonist not this.
Google TL: Ito-san and Sakura. 25 days Big pounding the latest issue released Desu, is Best regards
"I didn't receive the name yesterday so I sent this picture to the famed high school girl mangaka"
Essentially Ritz is being a slow fuck and is taking precious dragon quest time from Aguri.
famed high school girl mangaka
And that old racoon is getting badly influenced by Ritz. Harassing a younger mangaka is a no-no Igarashi.
Wish list for Toki: The Manga
Osakans doing typical Osaka things
Kinue playing soccer; trying to deal with being a non-mahjong person in a mahjong family.
Arakawa Kei deciding to become a nurse after helping Toki during a fainting spell.
Hiroe and Sera's love fights.
Kyouko riding a bike in her bike shorts.
Toki discovering Ryuuka's thigh pillow.
And sending picture of you brandishing a knife? Igarashi has balls.
Kyouko riding a bike in her bike shorts.
Honestly as long as I can see Kyouko being tormented by her lack of talent I'm happy.
Also, the spinoff should exploit the fact that same HS does not equal same MS. So future teammates could be middle school rivals and vice versa.
There could even be random girls in Osaka middle schools who later attend far away high schools in Zenkoku, like how Subara went from Nagano to Kyushu.
Random Shinohayus appearing as middle school coaches.
If a Toki: Tanoshii thread dies, does it become Saki?
Which Shinohayu, apart from Zenno, is from Osaka?
miko and delinquent playing muhjong, where is natsu
None that we're aware of yet, but Shinohayu has left Shimane only once. High crossover potential.
Toki and Subara again is great, but without Teru how can they make the match really good?
What is that thing?
They could probably make Kanna appear in some spinoff somewhere, I doubt she'll become pro.
How long until the Grandma appears? Will she be scarier than Teru?
She's managing the interhigh with Shino.
Before she got fired and replaces by Rena
I could see Kanna-sama becoming a politician. Or teacher.
I don't know about that.
She do have that European hipster undeground leftist terrorist Baader-Meinhofesque vibe to her.
"She who controls the past commands the future, She who commands the future, conquers the past."
Onjouji Toki, the girl who can see one turn ahead in the future
Back in elementary school, she had no idea what the future held for her
So we may be going back quite a way with Tokihayu.
Who's the one getting paid here?
not doing it for free and eating hot pockets
No, it becomes fertilizer where a Saki can bloom.
How does Ritz keep getting away with being so lazy?
How beautiful it is that the four pillars of saki fit together so well.
Toki dies to become fertilizer for the flower that blooms on top of the mountain while a bird flies overhead.
You forgot about the mountain that is Achiga.
It only fits together if Toki then eats the bird.
I thought you meant Mt.Awai.
Toki is in a cycle of rebirth, and the bird carries the newborn Toki.
That's why her ability is seeing one cycle into the future, that's fucking deep man.
Also Ritz is a hack.
Could Toki be the daughter of Shino?
Toki is shit
Please stop posting Toki
Do not reply to the shitposting or baits. Just hide them.
Why is Toki so FAT
Shitposting and bait
What are you even talking about?
She is still healthy.
Not only fat, she's also stupid!
Who would win in a physical fight, Hisa or Teru?
Hisa. Teru's just a girl who loves to eat snacks when she's not at the mahjong table. Hisa on the other hand takes no prisoner.
Teru. Teru is a strong bulking lady. She could easily crush the whore's head.
You forgot to take your meds again.
Alright now Satoha v Megan, no weapons.
Who's drawing the manga?
On a lewdness scale from Aguri to Ritz, how lewd is Mekimeki art?
Ritz when doing art for her own private collection.
meh. Those two are fine but the other senriyama are shit.
Teruhayu would be much better
Do we know what the hayu in shinohayu means? Does it have any meaning in Japanese? I'm not entirely convinced about the Shino Hayari Yue theory.
I read a theory that it's a play on words with "偲はゆ (shinohayu)", a rather archaic Japanese term meaning something like "to reminisce", which makes sense considering it's a story of the past.
Case closed. I can't imagine anything more likely than that.
Oh that's one mystery solved. Can't believe it took this long for me to know.
The argument was also that the rather literary and high brow word choice, Ritz frequent obsession with folklore, indicated that she was a liberal arts student in college, possible anthropology.
Something more 'high brow' fits the feeling of Shinohayu really well.
Achiga: Shonen babies.
Main series: Pervert
I seriously hope Toki won't be just mahjong-aids lesbian drama.
AIDS and suffering.
While I think theres interesting characters for Tokihayu I just can't see how it'll blend into a coherent story you give a shit about. Shinohayu has the whole fate of Shino and her mom, the semi-final of their third year that's just there to hype you up.
Knowing Mekimeki, that's exactly what its gonna be. Also lewd.
The Achiga manga was rushed to create enough source material for the Achiga anime.
But the vanguard semi (Teru/Toki/Kuro/Subara) was the most compelling part of the Achiga manga, and it was full of Senriyama flashbacks. Therefore, a Toki manga is needed to expand on this missing background.
So now more Saki anime is being delayed due to manga delays in 2016, indirectly because manga was rushed in 2012 to make the Achiga anime. It's like paying a debt.
But the Senriyama flashbacks were plenty good, and told what was necessary for the climax that was the side A semi. WIll Tokihayu be able to have as an intense match as that?
bring on the Toki
Maybe it's going to be Biyori 2.0 and go full SoL.
Hopefully it wont be Citrus 2.0.
Seems like this Mekimeki character would've been better assigned to make a Shindouji spin off from what I gather here.
Why is Ritz so proheminent in Gangan? Is Saki their best selling manga?
Don't worry, Mairu is all for open relationship.
not reading Ritz blog posts
She confirmed that her dad was John Gangan, the president of Ganagan.
I've noticed it too /a/thread/141798022#p141898422
Shinohayu is on the cover more than any other BG series.
That doujin was really sad.
Ritz is not good at planning.
Exhibit B, her propensity to leave chapters untoned to finish volume bonuses, resulting in her having to leave chapters untoned to fix older untoned chapters for the volume release, along with the volume bonuses.
Repeat ad infinitum.
Have there been any new leaks for Shinohayu yet?
Can't help it. Finding her father must still be her priority.
Since it might have been missed in the previous thread, the seiyuu for Toki's teammate and Japan's strongest first year is retiring from voice acting and Stylips to become a DJ.
Is Mako lifting Yuuki by the scruff of her neck there?
Yeah it was mentioned in the previous thread.
Come to think of it, didn't FunaQ's VA retire as well and they had to replace her? They'd just do the same thing here then.
I heard that this news was to be expected because she and style cube had some bad relations or something. Does anyone know anything about this? I couldn't find anything online about it?
Looking for gossips.
Gosh user, you are such a little girl!
Damn it, I've been rightfully called out on my bullshit.
It's probably Ritz's fault.
Does Ritz molest the voice actors to make sure they can properly represent her characters?
mfw Loser-hen was confirmed
I bet she'll think something else up instead of actually doing the finals after it's done.
No individuals, or Saki loses in the individuals without playing against Teru.
See you again in the Fall Tournament which was hyped also several times. With Yukiko in new outfits.
some old and new pics... cover of Big Gangan - ACCA will get an anime.
one reward is from Shinohayu.
Kano Itou manages to win a hand
"masaka..." the bird
not sure if this is the final placement, hiding it.
1. Aina 2. Shino 3. Sakura 4. Kano
And if you didn't know it from the last thread...
The next Biyori, after the unexpected break, is...
Cat Biyori #8
They just need their own spinoff at this point.
I like them, and Kana and Miharun. So it will be okay for me.
Japan was fast. Durian juice strikes again.
well, this is a new leak... I think.
Nodoka would say
trying a kokushi - never.
sometimes it works
1. Sakura 2. Aina 3. Shino 4. Kano
Probably not the final position.
win with yakuman
still only third place
Sakura confirmed for best girl.
First canon Kokushi since the individuals weren't canon.
how to tame a monster
I don't know the order of the pics, just posting whatever I found.
Also remember that because of all the renchans we left the game in East 2 with Shino as dealer, that's at least 7 hands that need to be played.
Final score at the end of the old chapter:
That smug triplet is so smug.
Even Nodoka would go for it if she got enough tiles.
I don't know how much SQENIX did pay for this...
Toki. In the Mainichi Shinbun (well, their online page).
hand holding not censored by text.
Anime announcement confirmed
This is fullblown advertisement, do Japanese newspaper not have to mark "sponsored content" on their ad articles?
There's an article at the bottom of the page that's marked as 'sponsored content' so maybe it wasn't paid for
"The new series will be on the front cover and initial pages of the next publication with first and second chapter being released at once. And they will even include supplement material."
It's either an ad or there's a huge fanboy for the series working in mainichi.
According to JP Wikipedia Mantan Web is Mainichi's otaku-stuff section.
How is this different from "business X announces product/service Y" you see in newspapers everyday?
it's more likely that they pulled the page from their manga/anime related page, and indeed:
it's still nice to see an article about Saki in a major newspaper site.
4 chapters of Saki and the front page
I swear to Toki if we do not get an anime announcement I will throw some of my Saki merchandise off a cliff
We'll get a Biyori 5 minute web-animation, believe it.
MekiMeki > Ritz
I wonder if Ritz knows that MekiMeki is a very prominent yuri doujinshi artist. Tokihayu might end up being really gay because of that choice.
Please. The Ritz knows, but pretends not to.
Either Mekimeki copied Ritz, or Ritz copied Mekimeki.
How old is that picture?
Side A characters showed up in the biyori OAD opening
Weren't actually in it
I was upset. We need need a Side A one.
it was the cover of an 8p doujin sold at C83 (2012) - but perhaps it is older.
And then we have Hacchan supporting Kasumi, but I can't find the pic.
She is cute
futaba transformed her in a stalker already.
First Rena and now this. Why can't they just leave Shino with Richardson alone?
Why can't they just leave Shino with Richardson alone?
Don't do that.
Shinohayu is hetero, Agri agreed, don't bother her about it.
Richardson needs to die at the end of shinohayu
Kano: "Losing because the last damn bird appeared"
Aina: "Apologise, Shino is married to the bird."
(translated out of my ass, obviously)
Out of all magic abilities in Saki, attracting the bird seems like the least useful.
Lovers' double suicide explaining the conspicuous absence of Shino in the 'present' time?
next magazine will have Saki bookmarks?
That would mean
only Richardson died because Shino is alive and well in present time.
this is probably from the "next issue" page in the magazine - the homepage wasn't updated yet.
I like the
another writer joins Ritz's harem!
Spin-off is about Ako and her part-time job.
Tell me more.
It involves old men and money.
Retirement home? How noble.
Sometimes, she does it with boys her age.
