Both are about a somewhat bland high-school protagonist coaching little girls in music and shogi, respectively.
If cute lolis who are insanely overpowered in their trade is your thing, enjoy!
Beware of sexualised children (no surprise though, this is anime after all).
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 I'm hesitant to recommend it. read more
Even wondered what i'd been like if 3-gatsu no Lion was a moe harem? Well it exists and its called Ryuuou no Oshigoto. Both anime dictate through the life of a young but professional shogi player. 3-gatsu no Lion differs by focusing on the complex emotions and struggles of its central protagonist as he suffers loneliness, anti-social behaviour and depression. While Ryuuou no Oshigoto differs with its central protagonist teaching young moe girls how to become professional shogi players. So if looking for an anime that focuses on shoji I suggest you watch one of these.
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 of them take an asian (japanese, even though it's extremely similar to chinese xiang qi and ma jiang which i play) game, add some supernatural/fantasy elements and turn an otherwise boring game for old men into a shounen-like anime with action! both of them have their funny moments, and as of episode two, I can see both of them headed the same way.
-Both anime have cute lolis.
-Both anime is all about a game.
-Both anime have characters who are geniuses.
-No Game No Life had blood related siblings while Ryuuou no Oshigoto! is a Master x Disciple positions.
-No Game No Life uses Chess while Ryuuou no Oshigoto! contains Shogi.
-No Game No Life had a character where she is being forced to fall in love to the MC while Ryuuou no Oshigoto! had a tsundere.
-No Game No Life is Isekai while Ryuuou no Oshigoto is real life.
-No Game No Life had siblings who are Antropophobic and NEETs while Ryuuou no Oshigoto! freely encounters people around them.
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.
