Man, I wish they'd hurry up and explain why Teru is such a shit to Saki. I don't even follow this manga, I just check in once and a while to see if they're still stringing everyone along.

I think she feels that she let Saki down somehow in the past and now she can't face her. She is her big sister and she suppose to protect but I get the feeling something went wrong that Teru feels responsible for

Well that answers that. I had a feeling Teru wasn't just being a stuck up prick. I think she feels disappointed that she let Saki down somehow and now she can't face her face to face.

That half-finished linework tho

I get the filling Ritz is doing this half- finished almost filler -like chapters while She works on making the actual finals epic

The finals is going to be so epic. We will see Teru and Saki their best. I'm sure Ritz wants the art-work top notch

I don't know how could Saki defeat her opponents, especially Shizuno's overwhelming power Shizuno

Shizuno may be the mountain but Saki is the flower that will grow on top of the mountain

Toki's ability feels like cheating to me and it stops me from being a fan

She has a limit though on how many times she can do it though. Also her being able to see doesn't always guarantee her a win as Teru showed us

Chapter 155 has been translated.

1)The information seems to suggest that the Miyanaga family broke apart when Teru was in 5th grade, which is a bit longer ago than I thought (although I'd heard that the Drama CD scene with Saki and Teru, which includes Saki's fond memory of Teru when they were young, was not long before Teru and her mother left home). Perhaps it also means that it'll be that much harder for Saki to reconcile with Teru, let alone get her parents to reconcile with each other.

2)I wonder why Nodoka said she didn't know whether Saki and Teru were related, especially since Nishida immediately sees through it.

3)It's nice to see Nishida consider the possible ethical implications of this as a journalist, but her comments suggest she's only scratched the surface. I hope we get to see more about this fairly soon.

Nodka knows that Saki doesn't like the press. If they found they were sister they would be following her around all of the time. In Saki's mind if it comes out so be it but they aren't going to announce it to the world either

Hmm that's hard . Tokyo Ghoul was pretty bad. Sasameki Koto was good but it disappointed they didn't another season. Aoi Hana was unappealing from the moment it became a anime. I HATE the Sailor Moon original Eng dub because of all the censoring of same-sex relationships. They changed Haruka and Michiru from lovers to cousins and that was pretty homophobic in my opinion.

The city of Iga in Mie Prefecture has announced plans to start issuing certificates recognizing same-sex partnerships as being equivalent to marriage. The city will become the fourth district in Japan to strengthen its LGBT rights. The certificates will be issued from April 2016, in a bid to address discrimination against the LGBT community, Iga Mayor Sakae Okamoto said in a statement.

The city will follow Shibuya and Setagaya wards in Tokyo, which became Japan’s first and second local governments to introduce the system last month. As of Friday, 25 December 2015, a total of 16 same-sex couples have received papers from the two wards.

The city of Takarazuka, meanwhile, has said it will start issuing papers authenticating partnership oaths by same-sex couples by summer 2016. Okamoto said he instructed city officials to visit Takarazuka to learn about its plan and compile guidelines by the end of March on issuing partnership certificates.

Japan should legalize same sex marriage already.

That...could be maybe, in like,...never? :D
That would be soo wonderful, but sadly i think they will do it in like,..phew,,,...10 years? 20? Oh well.It's 2k16 soon.
This will happen soon.

Have you not seen there's been a lot progress just this year. Just this year three cities in Japan recognized same-sex marriage and they even give out license of some sort that almost equal the same rights as married couples

Shibuya is a ward within a city. But I gather a couple of other cities are considering it. From what I gather, the certificates in those areas are largely symbolic and are not recognized in the rest of the country. But it's a definite start.

Isn't that how it started in the U.S.? Started off only being recognized in some places with lots of opposition from conservatives before it was finally made law nationwide.

Exactly how it started. In year 2000 California passed a simple little domestic partnership law that gave same-sex couples some rights kind of like places in Japan did and in the US it evolved from there just as it may in Japan. These little domestic partnership licenses/certificates evolve over time.

The city of Takarazuka yesterday announced that it will follow in the footsteps of two Tokyo districts in recognising same-sex relationships
As well as officially recognising the relationships, the city also hopes to fuel a debate on equal marriage.

The new certificates will be similar to those which came into force earlier this month in the Setagaya and Shibuya wards of Tokyo.

The mayor of Takarazuka, Tomoko Nakagawa, announced the initiative, saying: “One of the primary missions of local governments is to stand on the side of people who feel uncomfortable living in this society.”

Those signing up for the certificates will give a “partnership oath” to the city, giving their names and addresses.

Then a certificate will be issued under the mayor’s name.

Some services will accept the certificates, and will allow same-sex couples similar rights to their married opposite-sex counterparts.

Officially the certificates will begin being issued in March 2016.

Japan is now in that grey area that the US was in about the year 2010. They are warming up to the idea but not there completely yet.

A majority of Japanese support changing the country’s laws to allow same-sex unions, with the highest backing coming from younger respondents, according to a poll. Fifty-one percent of people polled by researchers from universities and the National Institute of Population and Social Security Research back such partnerships, the Asahi newspaper reported. Support exceeded 70 percent among respondents in their 20s and 30s, while 38 percent in their 60s and 24 percent in their 70s were in favor, the Asahi said. This year, Tokyo’s Shibuya Ward became the country’s first local authority to recognize same-sex partnerships and this month started issuing “equivalency to marriage” certificates to gay couples. While the move has helped build momentum for same-sex marriage, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and some senior members of his party are cautious on the issue

People get arrested all the time.

I'm not disagreeing with that. I'm just saying this crackdown seems different then in the past. I'm not even saying that people won't do it. I'm just saying that saying that it may not be as easy to get it.

They're not gonna stop piracy. Not even the music, film or game industries are able to stop piracy.

no not completely but if several getting arrested it will cause people to get scared of up loading it.

Has anyone been watching the recent news about manga piracy crackdown? There's been several people recently arrested in Japan and China. It makes me wonder how access to manga will change and will it even possible search for on the internet.

I like to think of Saki as a story set in an alternate universe where mahjong is insanely popular and underwear doesn't exist.

Um...the first part is actually canon, except it's near future rather than alternate universe.

I know, I take a manga about superpowered lesbians playing mahjong way too seriously.

I can't think of anything more worthy to be taken seriously, actually.

LOLOL I Know right
