As much as I love this manga, I'm a bit annoyed that the ending didn't resolve anything regarding the yuri, especially after we had Riko kissing Haru in her "sleep" when she was sick just a few chapters ago...
Well, I ship Riko with Akane, but still, any yuri ending would have been better than just leaving things out in the air like that.
Interesting note: the author has posted that they have always hated that kind of lack-of-progress in relationships in stories, but after making their own manga now understands why it can be necessary.
Interesting. I wonder what they now find is necessary. It sort of depends on what their definition of lack-of-progress is too. For me any type of relationship can be written well in the context of the proper type of story. Like a story which doesn't focus on a romance doesn't need to develop it as much.
Probably because they realized that as soon as real progress happens, they'll have to wrap up the story.
Personnaly, as much as I enjoy the manga for the comedy and all, I do find it annoying that Arisa seems to need a manual on how even kiss her girlfriend (which is something pretty much everybody else managed to master on their own) and Mari seems to prefer keep hoping for Arisa to somehow figuring out things on her own rather than actually taking the lead. Top/bottom nonsense at its finest and reminds me why I dislike seeing those concepts applied to yuri. -.-
For monster hunter fan, if you have a ps4 and are a plus member of playstation network, you can try monster hunter world for free starting tomorow and until the 12th and can already download the client.
Yeah, you always get a bonus for being a dealer, which is incentive to try and win when you are and make sure the dealer won't win (especially with a ron) when you're not.
Fu are often disregarded, especially by new players, because as you said, you don't have to bother with those when you manage to get 5+ han, plus can be a pain to count during the game (even more so with online games where you usually leave the counting to the computer. Playing live mahjong help making more sense out of it). If you can go with a 5+ han hand, no need to bother with those, as you said, but if you don't feel you can get more than 3 han, it can be worth trying to rack up the fu as much as you can to try and increase the overall value of your hand. But many players tend to get rid of terminals and honors to ensure having the han from not having any. Which tend to be easy to read and counter when you see a discard pool full of them. :p
Can anyone here who reads Saki for reasons other than fishing for the nopan shots explain me why this pityful 3 han hand of mine got 11,600 freaking points?
Late reply, but in case you're still wondering, that's because it's 60 fu, which is a pretty high base value hand, so you don't need many han to score high with it. Plus, you were dealer on that round, so you got the bonus for that too.
As for why your hand is so high base value, well, aside from the 5/6/7 chi, you had at least one terminal or honor tile in every other set, which gives you plenty of fu.
