Added DiffLines:

* ShowDontTell: Shortly after Kanna's argument with her friends, she goes home to an empty house, eats dinner by herself and does an internet search for how to apologize. All this not only shows that she has NoSocialSkills, but gives a good idea of what her home life is like.


* CallBack:
** In the prologue, Sukoya greets Harue, and says that they recently encountered one another. This is a reference to the ending of ''Achiga-hen'', in which Harue encounters Sukoya in the playing room for the finals earlier that night, and declares her resolve to go pro one day.
** A CallForward in this case. Chapter 17 focuses on a younger Harue, and highlights her obsessive need to research the quirks of her opponents -- something that was initially glossed upon at the start of Achiga-hen.

* DecoyProtagonist: It seems that this will be Harue's story... nope! The main characters, at least so far, are Shino and Kanna, as well as their teammate Hayari.
** And ''then'' Harue herself makes her entrance into the story in Chapter 17.

Added DiffLines:

* ChekhovsGun: Niemann, the current world champion, is mentioned off-hand during an early chapter. When she finally appears on-panel in Chapter 25, it turns out [[spoiler:Shino's mom has been with her the entire time, apparently brainwashed to be her attendant.]]


Added DiffLines:

* CrapSaccharineWorld: For all the fun mahjong hijinks, ''Shinohayu'' is the first series in the Saki franchise that hints to a darker underbelly of the professional mahjong circuit, especially with the mention of a high-stakes super-secretive annual game in Yokohama that's apparently even attended by world champions. Early on it is theorized that it might have something to do with the disappearance of Shino's mom. [[spoiler:This was confirmed in Chapter 25, where Nana apparently lost to Niemann, the world champion, and now amnesiac, serves the latter as part of her entourage.]]





!!Tropes:



* WouldHurtAChild: One man who's angry about missing the bus plans on harming Hayari when she protests how he's taking his anger out on another man, until Mafuka intercedes.

* MagneticHeroine: Shino has a knack of befriending people she's only played against once during a mahjong game. Kanna, Kyouko, and Hayari aside, she's also managed to get on the good side of several players in the Nationals.

* BrickJoke: The durian juice. For reference, it comes up ''again'' in Chapter 22, after more than a dozen chapters and a year of in-universe time.

Added DiffLines:

* BrutalHonesty: A character quirk of the other Okinawan representative, Kokoro Oroku.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Jerkass}}: Wakana Yonamine, one of the representatives from Okinawa, gets by through intimidation and scare tactics. However, while this might work on easily-scared middle schoolers like Shino's friend Rui, it utterly fails on Shino herself.


** The girl that stops Hayari's initial attempt at the nationals is revealed to be a much younger Uta Mihirogi.

* InvisibleParents: Averted. In start contrast with both the main series and ''Achiga-hen'', the parents (or guardians, in Shino's case) of many of the characters are not only apparent, but play active parts in their children's lives. So far, we've met Hayari's mom, both of Yue's parents, and Kyouka's mom.



* MegaTwintails: Worn by Yue.



* {{Otaku}}: Yue proudly announces that she's one, and finds the fact that her family lives so far from Akihabara a big hassle.



* SwitchingPOV: The pilot chapter focuses on Harue's mini-reunion with Sukoya, Hayari and Risa, then the first three chapters switch to Shino, before moving onto Kanna for four chapters, both of which lead up to their fateful finals match against Hayari and Yuuichi during the Matsue children's finals. Chapter 8 onwards is in turn dedicated to Hayari not long after her second match with Kanna.

* TheCameo:
** Surprise! You didn't think Igarashi would pass up a chance to show the ''Achiga'' girls with Harue involved. In this case, both Kuro and Yuu appear in chapter 17... As babies.


Added DiffLines:

** And ''then'' Harue herself makes her entrance into the story in Chapter 17.


Added DiffLines:

* MasterApprenticeChain: Chapter 17 reveals that it was Yuu's and Kuro's mother that initially tutored Harue on mahjong, and the latter in turn would guide Mrs. Matsumi's daughters during their run at the Nationals in the present day.


''Saki Shinohayu -dawn of age-'' (咲 -Saki-: シノハユ -dawn of age-) is an ongoing 2013 prequel spinoff of mahjong manga ''{{Manga/Saki}}'', written by Ritz Kobayashi and illustrated by Aguri Igarashi (of ''Manga/BambooBlade'' fame, who also did the ''[[Manga/{{Saki Achiga-hen}} Achiga-hen]]'' side-story), this time focusing on the pros, or rather, their teenage years.
