I honestly didn't expect much of this series, but boy did it get me hooked. Marathoned the whole series since I have free time today, and I'm left with wanting more! I loved the tension, and only realised Hani-meijin was the murderer the last 5 eps more or less. I didn't really like his motive though, kinda farfetched that he'd murder the family just so that Shion would get better, which would in turn make Hani-meijin better. I don't really get why he wanted to kill Satoru's fiance (forgot her name), and why she was scared of him when he appeared at her door, since they were close enough for her to call him onii-san. If he intended for her to die so that Shion would have nobody left, just like him, why didn't he kill the Yasuoka family as well? :/
The thing with Nikkaido didn't really end that well too. Cause it seemed like she really liked Hani-meijin and all, yet her reaction was normal when they arrested him. There was that one episode also that some other players pointed out that Hani-meijin must love/care for her in a special way, so what happened to that?
Either way, 10/10 for me cause it's been awhile since I've really gotten this into an anime. Will probs drop down to 8 or 9 soon though haha. Good series, loveddd it.

sports/detective/tranny is an unusual combination of genre and yet it blends well together. did not expect that he was the culprit. the series did a great job on leading us to other characters that was a false culprit. the golden moment when she spoke again was very rewarding. kinda wish there is a 2nd season to her journey of being the (first?) female meijin. I dont know anything about shougi i wish they at least explain some of the things they were doing than just having these "reactions." Its very niche appealed. I could have enjoyed the series more if I knew what was going on.
Okaa-san poppin' poppin' her collar out of 10.

So glad Shion won that match. And yay, she's talking again! Anyways, rating this a 6/10. I was more into the mystery rather than the games itself from this series. Also, seems like the other supporting characters from the beginning began to lose roles as this series progressed :/
Great themes though.

Great show, even though i dont know a thing about Shougi, it was still fun and tense to watch. Script was good so they explained most of the stuff they do so us without any knowledge can enjoy it. Plus good sub group made "notes" explaining stuff. The motive of murder is retarded, but it usualy is so i went past it.

I don't mind Hanii's reason for killing her parents, common. Though expecting a 4 year old child to give you a boost is a bit silly but whatever.
However, I still don't get why he tried to kill Satoru's girlfriend. What did she have to do with any of it?
