Manga previously went on hiatus from December 2019 through March 2020
This year's 20th issue of Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine revealed on Friday 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 will ship on December 18.
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?
If you're looking for the number one mahjong manga out there, you've found it!
Kobayashi launched the manga in the magazine in 2006, and Square Enix published the 20th compiled volume on March 25. The manga has inspired five spinoff manga series.
The original manga was adapted into a 25-episode television series in 2009, and a new television anime project titled Saki - The Nationals premiered in 2014. The Saki Achiga-hen episode of side-A spinoff manga also inspired a television anime in 2012. The four-panel spinoff manga Saki Biyori inspired an anime DVD in 2015. A live-action television adaptation of the manga debuted in December 2016, followed by a live-action film in February 2017. Live-action television and film adaptations of the Saki Achiga-hen episode of side-A spinoff manga premiered in December 2017 and January 2018, respectively.
