I’ve been interested in Shogi since watching the first season of 3gatsu no Lion and Ryuuou no Oshigoto came at the perfect time!

Plot (In my own words):

Kuzuryuu, Yaichi, 16,  became the youngest Ryuuou (literally meaning Dragon King). a title that is given only to the strongest Shogi player. But after winning his title he seems to have fallen into a slump, until he meets Hinatsuru, Ai. Ai shows incredible potential to be a very powerful shogi player having pushed even Kuzuryuu on the ropes in a shogi match. She asks to be his disciple and learn his way across the Shogi board and thus begins the journey of our lovable Teacher and student pair.


As cliché as Ryuuou no Oshigoto may seem, I think it has some good qualities that could make it a very enjoyable anime to watch! As a fan of shogi, it’ll be interesting to see their take on the Japanese board game. If you love high school anime and you like shogi then I suggest you give it a try!
