For me, I find this quite similar as both MCs are geniuses in their field/expertise. The issues they face are also a bit similar as it involves people and society and their mental health setbacks. The MC in the Days of Diamond is a very very people pleaser who gets sad/depressed easily if people around him doesnt get wins so he wins for them but this instead makes the people around him jealous and feel envy for their lack of skills instead. While the MC in The God Before Me is quite opposite who just wants to be the best but gets embarassed/ashamed very easily of people's thoughts and perception about him especially when he loses to someone who he thought was weak. They have a opposite mindset but still has some similarities especially around the social aspects hahah. Another similarity I noticed is the atmosphere as it revolves a lot around the psychological trauma and the mental setbacks both the MCs experienced. Anyways I recommend both of these although its still ongoing.

Ryuu to Ichigo

Ryuu to Ichigo

Ichigo Aida is a 14-year-old who lives aimlessly day-to-day, unable to find something worth devoting her life to. But when she ends up betting on a game of competitive shogi with her school counselor Miyamura, Ichigo decides to wager her life on it. Ichigo ultimately ends up losing the bet, and tries to jump out of the window, but is quickly stopped by Miyamura. Miyamura, who has now effectively taken her life under his wing, tells Ichigo that he senses she has hidden talent for shogi, and begins having her participate in one shogi tournament after another. "I want to win at shogi." With that mindset, Ichigo starts competing against one strong opponent after another, and with every move she takes, she rapidly becomes better and better...
