Both shows are about aspiring professional shogi players. However, the approaches to the show are much different as in March, the MC is trying to make it into the world of shogi after numerous setbacks in life, and in Ryuo the MC is already a champion in shogi and is teaching girls to become pros. Both have cute girls in it, though it is far more pronounced in Ryuo as they are the center of attention, while in March the girls are just emotional support for the MC. If you like Ryuo, then I highly recommend March, though the other way around  read more

These two series are not only almost similar in their premise and characters, they are also adapted by the same studio, therefore, those who enjoyed the first show, definitely will like the second.

They give of the same vibe as each other. The anime story telling is similar too. This is just based of one episode. But i believe Ryuuou will turn out to be very similar to Saki once we get to see more. So far i would recommend both if you like the one of them.

Both are about an older male coaching younger females. Both should also be watched in private, in incognito mode, and with a VPN.

The same loli relationship that involves older guy to very young girl, except in Ryyyou the guy was just slightly older than the girl or like a 7 years difference, while in Nobunaga there is a 15 year difference.

A more cheerful version of the former, as it deals with more lolis and with a (sometimes) serious slice of life approach to anime.

Alrighty. These two are pretty much the same but what sets them apart is that Ryuuou no Oshigoto is about shogi and Chihayafuru is about karuta. Ryuuou no Oshigoto is more light hearted than Chihayafuru but if you're looking for an anime that has the same type of progression in the story (someone trying to become the best at something/ getting technical into the game iteself) then Chihayafuru might be a good one for you.

Both are mainly about Shogi. Ryuuou no Oshigoto! is more comedy based with a male lead. Shion no Ou is more drama and mystery based with a female lead. Both are well worth watching!

This anime focus on the world of go, another traditional game played in Japan with similar professional leagues, tournaments and titles. 
report Recommended by Akeitho
Comedical series centered around playing shogi. The series is focused on the game and includes a professional commentary through the eyes of commentator characters, so you can watch those even if you don't know the shogi rules. While Ryuuou no Oshigoto has lolis as a secondary focus, Shogi Hour has more absurd humor.
