After escaping from jail, :astro: has gone to answer Michelle's distress call.

Quickly reviving her, Atom learns of the threat that had driven her over the edge of the hill in segment #11, ATOM ESCAPED!.

Can anyone translate these signs?

I can't see very well, but I think there is also 2 black bishops on the same color. This might happen when promoting a pawn, but it is extremely rare to promote a pawn to a bishop, usually one promotes to queen, which is the best piece. In advanced gaming one may promote to something else than the queen for example because the opponent managed to force the promotion and would cause a stalemate. However a bishop would be a very bad choice as it can't checkmate the opponent, unlike a rook for example.


Otherwise, speaking of pawns, there is a black one in a corner (at the bottom). This is absolutely impossible in a normal game because the pawn would be immediately promoted :p

Chinese chess have different designs for the pieces. I don't know for Mahjong. Maybe they were playing a chess variant :p
