I'm fascinated by shogi and manga and light novels that depicts it. The permutations and strategies that can happen due to the drop in-system makes it a lot more "dramatic" than regular chess. The fact that shogi-matches rarely results in a draw makes it a better fit I think.

Was she the engaged one you mentioned last page or was it Ai?

Ai = little girl main heroine, Rorioh no apprentice
Ginko = silver hair and Rorioh's childhood friend and fellow apprentice of the same master

How skilled is the MC compared to all the other Shogi masters? From the synopsis it sounded like he was the strongest shogi player in the world but that doesnt seem to be the case. Whos better than him?

Could we get some spoilers on what the story has been up to? If not it would be cool to see the illustrations from the other volumes, the anime, for being promoted as "loli bait", has some charm to it and isnt putting the shogi aspect in the backburner, which is a plus

I don't think she's a joke character. I say she got the 2nd biggest progression after Yaichi. If anything, she has the most room to grow so far still.

The third strongest character (Souta) in the novel thinks Yaichi revolutionizes playing Shogi. If I have to rank them, Yaichi is probably 2 or 3rd strongest in the novel.

Wow thanks for the spoilers! Im curious, how big of a role does red Ai have? I heard that she is kinda unimportant which sucks because she's the character Im most interested in.

Thanks for the spoilers! I don't know why people keep shitting on Ginko, I may just have read volume 1 and I'm watching the anime but I can clearly see a large potential for character growth to her, also, I really hope that Yaichi will not date/marry Ai at the end, if it's any girl of the series close to his age I'm okay, but with a nine year old girl? nope, gives me a bitter taste.

Go should still have more permutations because of more legal moves. Reading can get insanely deep when a player draws out a fight that spreads across the entire board leading to an all or nothing game. On top of reading ahead for both games, Go employs more pattern recognition and thin slicing, alternating between macro and micro views and focus more on army deployment (with no concern to the type of troops) as opposed to coordinating different capabilities of different kinds of troops in shogi. I guess it is also for this reason I find Shogi to be particularly hard in a different way. Unique piece have unique moves and there are a lot more vectors than chess from that alone. On top of that, promotion system and prisoner-usage further increase the number of vectors. Not to mention the colors are the same for both sides and the facing is what differentiates the armies (so that prisoners can be re-used).

While I can't explain it well, the permutations resulting from Shogi and those resulting from Go cannot be compared in an apple-to-apple fashion. I suppose they activate different parts of the brain.

It could also be I'm n00b to Shogi and just used to playing Go a lot more.

You are looking at the 9-year old rather than the age-gap which will be acceptable in another 10 years. I'm not shipping anyone though.

Go is indeed very complex, but luckily, the rules are simple so it's easy to learn, hard to master. What I find fascinating with shogi is the capture system can be used to allow attacks from a defensive position on the board. Trading of pieces is beneficial to both parties as they can be dropped in enemy base whenever and due to pieces always being on the board, it's always never a draw.

Just my personal view, I like Ai but I would enjoy it more if her relationship with Yaichi remained that of master/disciple or even a onii chan/imouto one, I also seriously don't get this obssession over lolis too.

Also when she gets her win against Ayumu's master, without it Yaichi will never win the match against meijin. But I'm so sad she was overshadowed by Ai and Ginko.

purely by system, I'd say I like Go more than Shogi, Go match can go very deep since the board is essentially free for all, which required very extreme planning for the end game, in fact, in Go, situation when 1 weaker side suddenly turn around is actually very common. In Shogi, advantageous side is more recognizable, and shogi have a lot of rule, which like Lare mentioned, the hostage rule. considering each piece have their own moveset as well, learning curve for shogi is actually pretty bad.

@Kunagisa Thanks for the spoilers, really appreciate it, recently read a summary for vol 3 somewhere else and I gotta say the novel sure rocks at giving depths to the characters, Keikaīs story sure was something else, and with Masterīs story getting shown, I sure cant wait to see how and what other characters get the spotlight
