  • BEST ANIMU EVER MADE
    This show is nothing less then a 10/10 for me. The characters are complex and likeable and the animation is consistantly great (except for that one weird eating montage scene).
    I think this show contains many lessons and idea's that everyone could benefit from. I don't care if you're into drama or slice of life anime or even if you like anime in the first place, you should watch this either way.

  • #125. Tired in Tokyo.
    After reaching professional status in middle school, Rei Kiriyama is now known as a elite in the world of shogi. It’s not all that glimmers though, he faces a terrifying amount of pressure, and already suffers with crippling anxiety from the shogi community and his adoptive family. Deciding to escape the stress at home, he rents a apartment in Tokyo, living on his own at the age of seventeen, and ...

  • A personal review on 3-gatsu no Lionis
    3-gatsu no Lionis one of the best anime at displaying the heavy and dark topics such depredation, loneliness and the unknown. Described depredation like an intense pressure of being submerged drowning and suffocation. The art style is quite unique changing with the atmosphere of the character's feeling in each scene. Becoming almost abstract when the MC is in a dark mood and giving of a warm ...

  • Chill anime to watch
    When I get tired of watching anime that are full of action, I always go to this anime and it fulfills me. It gets me emotional and seeing characters going through real-life problems is captivating. Also, I love how they include food and shogi as a way of escaping reality for at least a moment.

  • The seasons pass, shogi remains the same
    89 "Chapters" in, and I'm super depressed that it doesn't look like a third season is coming. While the show's cast of characters orbits around the main protagonist, unlike many series, each individual is given sufficient time to grow and breathe, in long, patient arcs. Also the animation is just spectacular and original, particularly towards the end... again, season 3 please.

  • Just became one of my favorite anime.
    This show is one of the greatest anime I have seen in a while. I'm a sucker for slice of life and stumbled upon this gem. This show just hits the right spot of comedy and drama, as well as the realistic hardships that comes in our life. I relate the most to Rei and Hina, pinching lots of attributes between the two that makes me realize that I connect to them the most, both in experience and way of ...

  • great story, Art work isn't detailed, but it makes the story better
    So, some people might be upset that the art is like water paint. but with the flow of emotions and the depth of what the Characters are going through. it makes the Anime just that much more powerful. I like how it portrays the faint differences in the lines of the mouth to show just how minor change in mood is shown. the story line is well done too in showing the difficulties of life, for all ...

  • Took me a long time to start.
    It took me a long time to start watching this anime. I do and don't regret it! Mainly I don't regret it because I don't think that I could have gone week to week with how this show made my heart feel! Binging it was amazing, and I'm just sad it's over now. I hope that we will see a third season, there are so many characters I'd love to see and learn more about!

    The reason it took me to watch ...

  • Continuous character development, beautiful illustrations, and thoughtful dialogue
    This is the only review I've written in the 6+ years I've had my crunchyroll subscription. I highly encourage anyone considering watching the show to do. March Comes in Like a Lion is one of the most beautiful shows I've seen in a long time with the most relatable character development. Although the show follows a high school student working his way through the professional shogi world, the show ...

  • A beautiful, touching, and heartwarming story of healing
    This has quickly shot up to the top of my all-time favorite animes. Profound and poetic, you will laugh, you will cry, frequently in the same episode. The animation is beautiful, the characters and unique and interesting, and watching Rei open up and grow is incredible. Also, it contains a first class depiction of what depression is really like in the first few episodes. Plus, you don't need to ...
