The official website for Ryuoh no Oshigoto! (known in English as The Ryuo's Work is Never Done!), an upcoming TV anime based on the series of light novels written by Shirow Shiratori and illustrated by Shirabi about a high school age shogi master and the 3rd grade elementary school student who claims she's his apprentice, has updated with a new key visual and new cast listings.

Additionally, the opening theme, entitled "Kore Kara" ("After This"), will be performed by Machiko. The ending theme, entitled "Mamoritai-mono no Tame ni" ("For the Sake of What I Want to Protect"), will be performed by Miku Itō.
The original Ryuoh no Oshigoto! light novels are published by GA Bunko, an imprint of SoftBank's SB Creative subdivision. BookWalker Global is producing an English language version of the series under the title The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done!, and they describe the series as follows:
The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done! is about a teenage boy named Yaichi Kuzuryuu who happens to be the strongest shogi player in history, holding the top title of “Ryuo” (Dragon King). One fateful day, shogi-loving elementary student, Ai Hinatsuru, appears before him claiming that he promised to be her master. But was such a promise really ever made? Thus began their master and disciple relationship! Who can match their level of intensity and passion for shogi?
The first volume of The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done! will be available from BookWalker Global in the Fall season of 2017. The Ryuoh no Oshigoto! TV anime will begin broadcasting in Japan in January of 2018.
