The story is about a teenage boy who happens to be a shougi master. One day, a nine-year-old girl turns up at his house, requesting to be taken as his disciple. From there, all kinds of wacky hijinks ensue.

First of all this anime is accepting pedophilia. You get the first episode the main dude falling down with naked nine-year old loli. Second episode where having him sleepover with three more loli. Third episode where dude become a fiancé to the loli and the fourth episode where he having more disciple who yet another nine year old girl. I really have no idea why this is could be a thing, even aired as exclusive content on Animax.

There not much to say about the story. The overall plot just following the conventional style of slice of life anime you already seen many many read more

This anime. Or rather, this copy-paste formulaic anime adaptation of the light novel that apparently was voted #1 in the Japan’s Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! for 2017 made me wonder if the anime industry even tries anymore. It’s 2018 and here we are, an anime adaptation based on shogi with a cast filled with questionable characters and content. I was cautiously optimistic about this show at first but upon finishing this anime, I can say that without a shadow of a doubt, Ryuunou no Oshigoto left little more than desired.

The Lolicon's Work is Never Done!

A story about a Shogi master (Yaichi) who begins apprenticing a young girl(Ai-chan) who is a little too fond of him. Along the way we meet a few too many other little girl characters who all seem to have some weird magnetization towards our protagonist and a couple of actual high school/adult aged characters who you'd like to imagine will be actual love interests for Yaichi over the plethora of little girls he has to choose from.

The show, at its core, is about Shogi... and lolis. But supposedly it's mainly about shogi. Yaichi's struggle to figure out how to read more
