Saki chapter 186 delayed

Just a heads up. No Saki chapter this week 😞. It's been announced on Ritz's blog. Apparently, the magazine advanced the non-appearance in print to this issue (Feb 16 issue) and told Ritz to draw more color pictures. Not sure if she means color pages in an upcoming chapter or just special illustrations for the Shinohayu/Toki/Biyori volume release next month. She does mention drawing Hajime-chan's butt, though 😅.

Speaking of Biyori, it seems the next volume will be the last one. I guess that means Saki Biyori is about to end? It's sad if it happens but I guess after all these years, it gets harder to make new funny gags. I wonder what Kiyoshi Saya will be doing next. By the way, I still have the previous chapter pending to translate. I haven't forgotten but I've been busy lately. I'll get to it soon. Work on the Achiga-hen special is also under way.

Saki ch185: Overheat

I don't know if it's better to translate wakkanne as 'dunno' or just leave it as wakkanne because everyone knows what it means already. This is a translation so I translated it but for some reason I like the sound of wakkanne~ better. Not that I know, though.

Who'll be the winner? Wakkanne~

Toki ch19: Malefic Star

As I was waiting for Saki raws to come out, I finished this, so Toki it is. Nice chapter too.

Shinohayu ch53: Solidarity

For convenience, I used the Chinese scans for this one but the text was translated from the original Japanese version as usual.

Saki Achiga-hen (Live-Action) Episode 4 Subs

Done in collaboration between Dong Meu Quy Toc Translator and Akio Translations. This is the fourth and final episode of the TV drama. After this comes a special and a movie. The special we will do, the movie I don't know.

Important: these subs were timed with the MBS version. The MBS version has a movie teaser in the middle which makes it 30 seconds longer. If you use the subs with the TBS version, the subs in the last part of the episode will be completely off-sync. So use the MBS version.

I'm waiting to see what raws are available for Shinohayu and the rest. It'll be done soon, just a little later than usual probably.

Ritz's impressions on the Achiga movie

The Achiga-hen live-action movie was released on the 20th and Ritz just made a new blog post with her impressions. It seems she liked it. Here's a translation.
*Edited the last part a bit.

The Achiga-hen movie!

I'm too self-conscious to go to an advance screening, so I first watched it on January 20. In fact, I was planning to secretly go to the advanced screening on the 11th but I had a deadline coming so I didn't.

Last year, when I secretly went to book a reservation for the advanced screening I was discovered by the producer so I was like "Gyah!" but this time it was ok.

The movie was wonderful as always. I think that if the serialization of Saki was allowed to continue, it was thanks to a good anime. Now, on top of the anime, I have been blessed with a good live-action.

Is this a spoiler?

Saki ch184: Surprise Attack

The original had a mistake in page 5. It said Mairu won in South 4 Bonus 2. That's wrong because FunaQ won that hand. It's clearly a typo from the magazine and it meant to say Mairu won in South 4 Bonus 1. It has been corrected in the translation. Other than that, a pretty complete chapter.
