As always, I searched but couldn't find anything. If I missed something, very sorry, feel free to lock.

As a child, Shion Ishiwatari's parents were murdered in their own home. Shion escaped unharmed, yet the trauma caused her to lose her voice. The only evidence police found was a shougi board and one piece "the King". Neighbours and close friends of the family, Shinji and Sachiko Yasuoka, adopted Shion and taught Shion how to play shougi. As the years passed, she became known as a genius and quite a famous player. Now, as her fame rises, her past resurfaces and she discovers that being a professional shogi player may just lead to finding her parents' killer.

Can be watched here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/showseries?id=6190

I only started watching this because someone said it was similar to Hikaru no Go, which is kinda is, only instead of being about Go, its about shougi. I highly recommend it if you liked Hikaru No Go. ^-^

So anyone else watched/watching this anime? Favorite characters? Episodes? Now, go on, discuss. ^-^

Now that would be a shocking twist if he was the killer but it would make it all the more interesting D:...although i think satoru maybe a little too obvious, there must be something more complex. I think Hani-ni seems a little suspicious though who knows, either the killer's a character we've already seen and who we don't expect to be the killer at all (like her dad) either it's some unknown character that'll be revealed later like her mom's brother; satoru's dad....who knows >_<

drama, suspense/crime, mystery?

i havent seen hikaru no go, but this series is great! it's really nice to watch a series that's set realistically. even the shougi scenes are done really suspense-fully. (is that a word? haha)

i'm betting on satoru atm, but i think there's someone working behind the scenes, ie satoru committed the murder, but someone else orchestrated the whole thing. perhaps something to do with shion's adopted mother's brother? i like hani-meijin too much to suspect him, really wanna see him n saori get together ^^.

Sadly, I figured out who the murderer was 1st episode. However, I've continued to watch the series because it's really good/fascinating. And, I'm curious about the motive. I can't wait for the next episode!
