Ayumu wants to beat his senpai at shougi so he can confess his feelings.

Although the day of his victory is still nowhere to be seen, this is the story in which he may 'checkmate' her by other means.

Shogi Club/ School Romance

*Warning: diabete-causing manga

If you like "Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san", you will most likely (99% chance) appreciate this one since both mangas are from the same author. Think of "Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san" as a cup of regular coffee (15~20 pg per chapter), "Soredemo Ayumu wa Yosetekuru" is a shot of espresso (5~10 pg per chapter).

*Minor Spoiler:
Story: 8 (I love how they treat or imply tactics of shogi on the topic of love. You won't learn a lot about the shoji; rather, it is a medium to bring out the most sweetness from the story)
Art: 8 (Even though Yamamoto San may read more

To make a long story short, this should have been a 4-koma. This story honestly doesn't go anywhere. Every chapter, you start essentially at the same point the last chapter began with. I'm not finding any development in terms of romance, characters, plot... It's sort of like watching reruns of the same show. Sure they get into different conversations and situations, but after 20 chapters, the story still hasn't gotten off the ground. It feels like I'm reading pre-chapter manga pages before a real chapter starts. But hey, it's cute, sure, but it's not something that's developing into something serious (at least not within the read more

The word “Ayumu” in Soredemo Ayumu wa Yosetekuru refers to two things. It can refer to the lead male character – a hapless novice when it comes to Shogi (Japanese variant of Chess), or it could refer to the Soldier/Pawn piece in the game of Shogi. As in Chess, if the Pawn (Ayumu) safely reaches the far side of the board – it converts into a powerful piece like the Bishop or Rook.

Ayumu, similar to the Ayumu piece in Shogi, wishes to convert himself into a powerful Shogi player and defeat the Shogi club president (Urushi, whom he is in love with). Once he read more

Soredemo Ayumu is a manga that some may criticize for its lack of progression. I believe that a series should be judged as a function of the goals that it sets for itself, how effective it is at achieving those goals, how worthy the goals are in the first place, and comparison to other series with similar goals. Soredemo Ayumu follows in the footsteps of series like Kaguya-sama: Love is War and Teasing Master Takagi where conventional progression is subverted in favor of an emphasis on character interactions. With these types of series there are two goals: getting the other person to confess their read more
