Would /a/ watch Saki if it was cute girls playing chess instead of cute girls playing Mahjong?
Only if they had magical lesbian chess powers.
There's nothing that will make me watch that garbage of an anime
I just don't see what they would do. They have magic powers which can make sense in a game like mahjong, because there's a lot of chance involved. What would they do in chess with powers?
I could watch Seki play chess.
Getting some taste might work.
No. But I'd watch cute mute girl whose parents were brutally murdered before her eyes play shogi.
Yes, because it would celebrate superior western culture rather than an old and busted china game.
Inferior until age of reason, cause you guys didn't appreciate the goodness that was Rome.
I'd watch it if it was little girls playing at being Kaiji
Mahjong master race, chess has been figured out.
I watched that actually.
get a load of this guy.
Chess hasn't been 'figured out' turbonerd, making computers that can outperform humans=/=coming up with an optimal solution.
No. Either way it's cute girls.
Chess is really boring and methodical with no chance involved. There's a reason why you only see animu/films being made around games of chance like poker.
Board games are imbalanced and for children.
Chess is pretty boring though
Do you even Seventh Seal?
Shion no Ou? Pretty good for 'sports' anime.
Murder mystery, trap and cute MC.
