Japanator's Josh Totman writes:"It was nice to see that the mahjong anime Saki, would be getting a second season. The first season was cute, lovable, and didn't teach you much about mahjong. At least, I didn't learn anything like I was hoping for. That's what initially got me interested in the anime when I first heard it was coming out.
Saki Episode of Side A looks to continue with the cute charm of the original. Which I welcome with open arms."
