This year’s 20th issue of Square Enix’s Young Gangan magazine has announced that Ritz Kobayashi’s Saki manga will go back on hiatus from the magazine’s 21st through 24th issues, and will return in the first 2021 issue, which is scheduled to ship on December 18, 2020. The series has had previous multi-month breaks, with the most recent being from late December 2019 through early March 2020.
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 magazine in 2006. Yen Press is publishing the manga in North America digitally.
