After getting a live-action drama and film adaptation, it looks like Ritz Kobayashi’s mahjong manga series, Saki, is getting a new live-action adaptation. A look at the latest cover of Young Gangan magazine reveals that this time, it would be the Saki spin-off, Saki Achiga-hen episode of Side-A, getting the live-action treatment.
Not much is still known about this new live-action Saki spin-off based on Saki Achiga-hen episode of Side-A though. Expect the magazine, as well as the live-action film’s staff, to reveal more details.
The manga received a 4-episode TV drama in late 2016, and then a live-action film earlier this year. Minami Hamabe previously played the titular Saki Miyanaga. As for the spin-off manga the new live-action adaptation will be based on, it will focus on the mahjong players of Achiga Girls’ Academy, rather than Saki and her Mahjong Club at Kiyosumi High School.
