It feels like it's mixing sangatsu no lion with tenshi no 3p. It doesn't help that the director of tenshi no 3p is coming back to direct this. Now I may enjoy shougi and I may be a lolicon, but the loli-themed fanservice for tenshi no 3p was a bit too excessive for my tastes. I hope that the "wacky hijinks" from the loli coming in and becoming the mc's disciple doesn't become what I think it is...other than that the art is kind of cute.

@Jiharo At first it was worded that she wants him to be her disciple. Now it sounds much better, they just need to not fuck it up.


It was because the synopsis was wrong in the first place and I had to correct them because no one realized it, which is why I also reply to your post because you got misled by the erroneous synopsis.

If the girl wanted to become his disciple it could be somewhat interesting but this way it sounds really unfunny. With premise like that it takes just a few minutes to judge if it will suck or not. Director and studio don't make it look any better as well.


The girl IS taking discipleship from the MC so yea, things will be fun.

The light novel is available in baka tsuki for those who want to try it. Though do take note that it has a warning that it has heavy shogi dependent terms so if you like shows like 3-gatsu not because of its game, well better learn the game first before reading this.

LOOK AT THE CAST!!! I'm positively sure that's the best cast I've seen in recent times. This is gonna be an amazing ride.

So this is Shogi? What are some of the best Shogi Anime so far? In Detective Conan, there's this Shogi Master and sometimes I can't follow it if the case revolves around the game.

Is there enough material?


whoops, No... well there is 4 volume ongoing, then we can expect no more than 13 episode (that adaptating 3 volume). Since this is game genre anime, so we cant expect this to have a original ending also.


Actually Vol 6 is out this week, and when the anime airs there should be another volume release. But GA Bunko LN series never got 2-cours season anime and Haiyore Nyaruko-san was the only one that got a second season anime. So most likely it will be one-cour and we'll just see if it will get another season.

The LN kinda tried to convert me into a pedophile...
Pretty sure the anime would be fun.

i really surprise this coming so early, i hope they adapt it as good as the original is.

Ohhhh? This looks really fun and well, as some people pointed out with Project No.9 welp. I think this would be just entertaining, will keep an eye on this :P
