Urushi is a 2nd-Year High School girl, who wants her own Shogi Club. Currently, it's only her and a 1st-Year boy Ayumu in the unofficial Shogi Club. Ayumu has a crush on Urushi and will confess to her after he beats her in a Shogi match.


  • Simple, sweet Rom-Com with awkward students.
  • The characters are all adorable and likable.
  • Small chapters, about 8 pages.


  • No real story, other than the base premise.
  • Too long, this is being dragged out while something so simple should last no more than 80-100 chapters.


Watch it for the cute characters, involved in innocent love, this is more of a snack than a full meal. The downside is, the writer is dragging the story out and will do so as long as he can. 

This is not uncommon in the manga industry, as writers try so hard to get their manga published, and once it happens they decide to stretch it out. This is not an attack on the mangaka, just the nature of the writing business. Mangakas are pretty overworked and underpaid, I do not blame the writer here if he decides to really stretch this out. Hopefully, we get a proper ending to this manga with the two main characters confessing, similar to the recent "We Never Learn" manga ending (Not exactly a spoiler), but only time will tell.

Until then 6/10 enjoy it as a side dish to the other manga you are currently reading.

5/10 story
7/10 art

Yeah it is draggy enough like idk how it got an anime since it's just the same thing happening in every chapter but hope it goes well for the author!
