The Saki Manga Will Be Going on a Two Month Hiatus

This year’s 14th issue of Square Enix’s Young Gangan magazine has announced that Ritz Kobayashi’s Saki manga is going on hiatus from the next issue, which will ship on July 21, 2017, to the 18th issue, which will ship on September 1, 2017. The manga will resume in the magazine’s 19th issue on September 15, 2017. The manga also had a two month break from October to December of 2016.

The story of the manga is described as:

Saki’s never been a big fan of mahjong. A lifetime of being forced to play with family at holidays (and losing her money as a consequence…) has left a foul taste for the game in her mouth. When she’s convinced, though, to play a game with her classmates, she discovers that not only has fending off her family left her with an uncanny ability for the game but, more surprisingly, that it can even be fun.

Is this revelation enough to cleanse Saki’s distaste for the game? Can her classmates convince her to join their club, or is there just too much baggage to make it worth her while?

Kobayashi launched Saki in Young Gangan in 2006. Yen Press is publishing the manga in English.
