The live-action adaptation of the Saki manga from Ritz Kobayashi is on track for a February 3rd, 2017 debut and now the first trailer for it has been released alongside the theatrical poster. It’s a short trailer coming in at just a minute but it covers a good bit of what fans are looking for as well as sampling the theme song “Kimi ni Waltz” which you can also see below.

Manga Concept: Miyanaga Saki is a high school freshman who doesn’t like mahjong. Ever since she was a child, she would lose her New Year’s gift money during her family mahjong game. If she won, her parents would be upset, and if she lost, well, she lost. As a result, she’s learned to play in such a way that her score always remains plus/minus zero: not good enough to win, but not bad enough to lose. When we meet her, she’s being dragged to her school’s mahjong club by an old friend. How will a girl who hates mahjong, yet has become adept at the game as a result of her upbringing, survive in this environment?
