Series about girls' high school mahjong club adapted into TV anime

The March issue of Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine is announcing on Tuesday that Ritz Kobayashi and Aguri Igarashi's Saki Achiga-hen episode of side-A manga will end in the following issue in March.

The series launched in Monthly Shonen Gangan in August 2011 as a spin-off to Kobayashi's original Saki manga. Saki Achiga-hen episode of side-A follows childhood friends Shizuno Takakamo and Ako Atarashi as they attempt to revive the mahjong club at Achiga Girl's Academy and compete against their former classmate, Nodoka. The fourth compiled volume shipped in Japan in November.

The manga inspired a 12-episode anime adaptation last year and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. More special episodes were announced in June. The first aired in December, followed by the second on January 29 and two more in the works.

Ritz Kobayashi's original Saki manga is still ongoing in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine.
