Saki: Episode of Side A have a bit more to be happy about this weekend as the new issue of Monthly Shonen Gangan has revealed that three more episodes have been ordered for broadcast for the season, bringing it from twelve episodes to fifteen. It's not often that you get this, or to get it to broadcast rather than just added onto the home video release. Speculation runs that it'll play out in its existing timeslot and that the show that follows it will be a ten episode series of something else, which we're seeing a few more of this past spring season and getting the nod for in upcoming seasons.
Crunchyroll is currently simulcasting the series here
