Saki (manga)/Ho Yay
Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
- Heavy amounts of Les Yay are present between Saki and Nodoka in Saki, with Nodoka blushing around Saki, Nodoka constantly thinking about Saki, Nodoka telling Saki about the constellation of two lovers, and the other people actually noticing it to the point that they state that Saki is a huge source of distraction for Nodoka. Consider how Saki often reciprocates, it's a wonder the two haven't given in and made out at this point. Point in case would be in Episode 10, in which Nodoka consciously snuggles closer to Saki to hug her while they sleep together.
- And then in the final episode they very meaningfully exchange charms and walk down the steps from a shrine, with Intertwined Fingers and very triumphant sounding music playing behind them...
- Not that the two main characters are the only source of Les Yay for the show. Hisa and Mako have a mild one going on too, what with Hisa telling Mako that she's the only reason why Hisa never gave up on the Mahjong Club.
- Nor is Kiyosumi High School the only source for these. Meet Kazekoshi Girls' School's Mahjong club, where every member has a huge crush on their captain, Mihoko. To the point where they get jealous of their fellow team members if the captain cheers her on or comforts her with a hug. Gets lampshaded in the third ending, which shows the team creating a massive sand sculpture for their captain.
- That said, they might be crushed to know that Mihoko has her eyes set on someone else, namely Hisa, who once managed to beat her after she opened her Evil Eye then called her eyes as beautiful after the match. Cue huge Foe Yay as Mihoko never forgot about her and wanted to meet her again, though sadly, Hisa dropped out of the tournament scene afterwards and had apparently forgotten all about her.
- From Ryuumonbuchi High School we have Touka and her maid Ayumu, who has a crush on her, and her personal maid Hajime, who she had bought before but has now grown so fond of her that she doesn't want to lose her chains since it might mean that they won't be together anymore. Cue the usually prickly Touka blushing madly and stammering at the declaration, while Ayumu watches in tears.
- And of course, we have Tsuruga Academy's main couple of Yumi/Momoko, who was last in for the Les Yay department but is definitely not the least. Yumi storming into Momo's classroom and screaming "I want you!" for their first meeting? Momo being so touched, she not only appears before Yumi, but is now fine with her non-existence as long as her one special person can see her? The two of them actually being shown going out on dates afterwards? The usually Shrinking Violet Momoko glomping Yumi in public while screaming "I love you, sempai!" and the usually stoic Yumi blurting out an embarassed "Not here!"? My goodness, if their relationship still isn't considered canon, it should be!
- Here's all the Les Yay of Saki in one convenient, 25-second package.
