A trailer for episode 11 of Saki: Achiga-hen - Episode of Side-A, to be simulcast via Crunchyroll. This second anime season of Saki is created by Studio Gokumi, based on a spin-off manga written by Ritz Kobayashi (who also created the original Saki manga that spawned a 2009 anime series) and illustrated by Aguri Igarashi. The new story follows Shizuno Takakamo and the other mahjong players at the all-girls school Achiga. The Achiga Girls' Academy in Nara once defeated regional mahjong powerhouse Bansei High School. It advanced into the national team semifinals but lost to the eventual champion, and the mahjong club was later disbanded. Six years later, elementary school student Shizuno Takakamo befriends transfer student Nodoka Haramura. The two eventually enter Achiga Girls', but Nodoka transfers out of the school in the second year. When Shizuno sees Nodoka on television the following year as the national middle school individual mahjong champion, she decides to revive Achiga's mahjong club.
