This year’s 18th issue of Square Enix’s Young Gangan magazine has announced that Ritz Kobayashi’s Saki manga will go on hiatus and will return in the 23rd issue on November 19, 2021. The series has had previous multi-month breaks.
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 Saki in North America digitally.
