what else would you do on a show discussion thread?

be patient and see where the show goes in a few episodes? nah who does that. nowadays you gotta decide whether a show is trash or gold in the first episode!

I'm on the fence on this one. I like the Shoji angle. Not a fan of the elementary school girl fan-service. No problem with her being jealous of other girls as that happens but hopefully the bath scene is the only incident.

That's the vibe I'm getting from this episode and the poster art, but that's not really the issue to be concerned about.

The Ryuo's Work is Never Done! (Ryuo no Oshigoto! ) EP 1"A Disciple Storms In"

This is fun !

Yaichi becane a Ryuo ( Thev highest Title of Shogi ) but has gone into a slump. When he geys home 9 year old Ai is there calls him "master " When he won the Ryuo a girl gave him water as he was going to passout bt was OKand won the Ryuo Ai was the Inn''s daughter where the Shogi tourney was held and msade a promise to her he do anything she asked if he won Apparently Yaichi forgot ans Ai wants to become a great Shogi player He figures he wil test her skills and assumes she is too young / lacking skills he can dismiss the idea

She plays well on defense but Yaichi wants to end it and plays a risky move but figures she will stay on defense but instead goes on offense putting Yaichi at a disadvantage They battle hard and Yichi like Shogi again Its basocaally a draw but Ai admits defeat .

Ai says he uses his style of attack but that is all she knows but aain surprises Yaichi by saying she only started playing after the tourney reading her grandfathers books

But Yaichi doesnt give her a rejection instead keeps playing in facy so long they were hugary and Ai makes a simple but good meal

He tests her verbally on one of the hardest Shogi games and Ai knows all the moves



Yaichi thinks it over / one mayor obstacle his sister who just happens to stop by to play Shogi and then she hears Ai's voice Sis has a key though

Ryo's explanation to sis



Sis is Sora Ginko who is called sis because they are in the same club he has won 2 titles Quuen and Empress



Yaichi tells Ai she must respect her and Ai goes you are SM Yaichi laughs as she smacks hin on the head with a fan Ai and Sora mock each other and demands they go to the club master;s house where it's discoved Ai ranaway from home The master is goodfreinds with her parents ans asks why Yaichi Ai says he was having a hard time and never have up

Master says Yaichi should train Ai as noth him and Sora object but reminds them ther were in awe of him when young

Yaichi first enrools Ai in a Shogi education school where she can learn and play other players moving up in rank is she wins

Ep 1

Kinda feels like a mix between 3-gatsu and all of the worst (or best depending on who you ask) aspects of something like Eromanga Sensei. I actually do like Ai, even if I'm not a huge fan of the obvious pandering in the first episode. She is cute though. The shogi angle is easily the most interesting aspect here and if the other stuff doesn't get in the way too much it might be surprisingly good.

Also, having seen March comes in like a Lion, it feels like they are trivialising Shogi by having vast amounts of young elite players - a couple of very young geniuses, sure, but an entire cast? And young bishoujo title winners too. Granted, I may be making big assumptions.


This part actually bothered me quite a bit and made me roll my eyes. A story about Ai being a prodigy and receiving training from the youngest 8th dan in history? Perfectly fine. Making the supporting cast all young shogi professionals really takes away from it though. I really hope they stick to the shogi/character stuff but I'm keeping my expectations in check.

Yeah, I felt this way as well. Obviously Ryou is just a comedic take on the whole shogi thing but when you've got such an amazing and long running series like March Comes In it's impossible to not make the comparisons. And it's not even like March is pure drama as it has it's share of comedic moments and over the top characters too.

Well , its got shogi with all the typical anime character type and comedy

but I do like is how they showed some facts about the shogi society
The seiyuu for the MC is Yuma Uchida, Nikaido from San Gatsu no Lion is Okamoto Nobuhiko ( met him once before ) and yes ,he is that cosplayer shogi player
