3-gatsu no Lion, Ryuuou no Oshigoto! Recommendations
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
-Both anime are about shogi
-Both MCs became professional shogi players at a very young age.
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.
