Now in his second year of high school, Rei Kiriyama continues pushing through his struggles in the professional shogi world as well as his personal life. Surrounded by vibrant personalities at the shogi hall, the school club, and in the local community, his solitary shell slowly begins to crack. Among them are the three Kawamoto sisters—Akari, Hinata, and Momo—who forge an affectionate and familial bond with Rei. Through these ties, he realizes that everyone is burdened by their own emotional hardships and begins learning how to rely on others while supporting them in return.

Nonetheless, the life of a professional is not easy. Between tournaments, championships, and title matches, the pressure mounts as Rei advances through the ranks and encounters incredibly skilled opponents. As he manages his relationships with those who have grown close to him, the shogi player continues to search for the reason he plays the game that defines his career.

Outstanding, just as amazing as its first season.
After watching the first few episodes, it feels like returning to a warm home on a chilly autumn day, being engulfed by the sweet scent of apple pie and hugging my cup of hot cocoa.

Story: (10/10)
Everything is told through such a beautiful way like a poem. Most of the emotions Kiriyama is feeling are presented to us through the art style, which plays a big part in how the story unfolds. It gives off subtle Your Lie in April vibes but without the extreme sadness.

Each episode is composed simply and even without a lot of action with read more

3-gatsu no lion that aired in fall was already a masterpiece, a unique, mature show that had very interesting plot points and characters, it was surprising to see that such a show managed to get a sequel, but apparently it was very famous in japan, which is great. now, 3-gatsu no lion's second season is, in my opinion much better than the first season, don't get me wrong, both seasons are masterpieces, but seeing this one and all the characters advancing and changing, it's simply great to watch.

TL:DR: amazing characters, Good, slice-of-life story, the best music and openings, and of course, SHAFT's art, also known read more

If you thought that the Shogi in season 1 was boring but stuck it out anyway for the melodrama then you are in luck!
For many people season 1 was good and season 2 only gets better. And if you thought that the best part of the show was the MC's inner turmoil then by all means this second season won't let you down! As long as you weren't too attached to Kiriyama Rei that is. We kind of left him behind to pursue other crestfallen and overly dramatic heroes. If you think questions like read more
