Saki -- Characters and Seiyuus, with character pics

The strange little mah jong anime Saki, with its pleasant touch of yuri fanservice, has an excellent cast: Ueda Kana, Koshimizu Ami, Kugimiya Rie, Horie Yui, Itou Shizuka, Shiraishi Ryouko, Shintani Ryouko, Fukuyama Jun, Saitou Momoko, Morinaga Rika, Saiga Mitsuki, Chihara Minori, Kuwatani Natsuko, Shimizu Ai, Kobayashi Yu.

But I have struggled through 13 episodes only aware of who plays whom for a few of the characters. Finally, as we enter the second half of the show's run, I have cobbled together a quick map of who the characters and their seiyuus are, with pics of the characters. I hope it helps both you and me.

Haha, I can't believe you're still getting through Saki. It was one of the shows I was more looking forward to the past season but after watching Akagi, Shion no Ou, and Hikaru no Go it just .. didn't live up to my expectations. I'm still watching too though, but .. not as one of the things that I most look forward to in my week. I just wish it had more strategy and depth in the games..

I didn't catch Horie Yui and Shimizu Ai though, thanks for the post!

Haha Kuwatani Natsuko, Saiga Mitsuki and Kobayashi Yu, I missed them. Most of the rest I knew already though.

@anonymous -- I think I'm in the same boat as you. I almost gave up on this show. And it's not the first thing I rush eagerly to watch. But there is just enough here to keep me watching. Having a very rudimentary knowledge of majiang, any problems with the games don't bother me. I just accept the attitudes the director wants me to have, lol.

@Panther -- I had read the names of the seiyuus, but I never got around to connecting them all to their characters, until today. Actually, Koshimizu Ami alone is just about enough for me. Saki is supposed to be the star, but Nodoka gets at least as much screen time and attention, so far.

There'll be so much Saki later on you won't remember her limited speaking lines now.
