Animes set in high school are about adolescents wrestling with hormones and peer pressure.

I don't like playing chess with a pro. It's no longer a game of intelligence. When you play with a pro, it's more like recognizing a pattern, then use a pattern to deal with that and win. Pattern memorization, in short.

I rather play with total newbie. It's fun.

Code Geass is great, but the downside is that the animators probably don't know how to play chess (unless you're making up rules like Izaya does in Durarara!)

Chess anime? Never really heard of an chess anime really, because chess although easy to understand after some practice; it has a lot of mental thinking to it due to each piece having a role in each move and place making it a very difficult game for anyone who isn't much of a thinker or gets a headache from thinking too much.

Chrono Monochrome is probably the closest to Western chess.

I think Hikaru no Go is pretty close to being a "chess" game in anime terms. Code Geass and Umineko no Naku Koro Ni has elements of chess in it though not the way the game is played, but more like using humans as the chess pieces themselves.

Chess is not a big sport in Japan unlike Shogi (a Japanese style chess game that is kinda like Western chess with a few difference), tennis, soccer, and etc.

Your friend sounds like me, lately I've been studying chess strategies and opening, but no I can't recall any chess anime in particular.
