This year's fifth issue of Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine is announcing on Friday that the main cast of the Saki Achiga-hen episode of side-A anime series will sing the anime's ending theme song. Aoi Yūki (Shizuno Takakamo), Nao Tōyama (Ako Atarashi), Kana Hanazawa (Kuro Matsumi), Mako (Yū Matsumi, and Yumi Uchiyama (Arata Sagimori) star in this adaptation of Aguri Igarashi's high school mahjong manga. A special drama CD written by anime script editor and screenwriter Tatsuhiko Urahata will go on sale on March 28, before the anime premieres this spring.

Igarashi's manga is itself a spinoff of Ritz Kobayashi's original Saki high school mahjong manga. The story follows Shizuno and the other mahjong players at the all-girls school Achiga.

The first Saki anime's Manabu Ono will once again direct at Studio Gokumi, which is composed of former staffers from Gonzo's fifth studio. Gonzo's fifth studio produced the first 14 episodes of the first Saki television anime in 2009, but Picture Magic took over for the rest of that earlier anime after Gonzo had to restructure.

Other returning staffers include assistant director Kenji Seto, Urahata, and character designer and chief animation director Masakatsu Sasaki. Bandai Visual's Lantis label will once again produce the music.
