    Shion no Ou by Katori Masaru & Ando Jiro

    Shion no Ou: The Flowers of Hard Blood
    by KATORI Masaru
    Genre(s): Drama, Mystery, Seinen



    Quote Quote:
    Yasuoka Shion lost her parents, and her voice, when she was young...in a murder.She was found amidst a blood-soaked room, and the only hint for the suspect was a Shougi board and one piece: the King. Now, Shion steps into the world of female professional Shougi players. As her popularity and fame slowly rises, so do the questions about her past, particularly the murder case that was never solved.

    So what does everyone think of this series?

    I have to admit, I've enjoyed picking up some Shougi vocab.

    Re: Shion no Ou

    Does anyone know if the anime is worth watching, or if the manga is just nowhere near completion? I dont think the anime is done yet, but at this point you could probably draw conclusions of whether their will be a decent ending or not. It sounds interesting to me, but I am one of those people who usually chooses between an anime or a manga.

    From what I can see, only up to chapter 12 has been scanlated. Which is quite dissapointing considering it is quite far behind the raws. As far as the raws, #lurk has up to volume 6, which probably means you wont be able to find anything past that. I dont know if 43+ refers to vol 6+. Sorry I cant help you.

    Imho opinion the anime is very good and I believe in this case you can wath it and also read the manga.

    Unconsciousness is my destiny, my joy but also my desperation.

    I'm at v3 just waiting for some qc and I'll have v3 all out by next month or month after. I actually should get close or all the way with the magazine by the end of this year. School just takes a lot of my time thus the slow releases up till now. That and I wish to keep the scans HQ or as close as possible.

    Chapter 43 hasn't been released in tanks. But it would be the first chapter of volume 8.

    The anime keeps to the same story and details as the manga, from what I've seen of the anime so far.

    Sidenote:
    If you have trouble understanding the shogi terms or want to know more about shogi in general Here. Or if your lazy ask me and I'll give you an answer here.

    Re: Shion no Ou

    In case anyone was wondering, the magazine Shion is printed in is "Monthly Afternoon" - new chapters come out each month. That's why most of them hover around the 40-page mark.

    Afternoon is probably the best monthly seinen magazine that is being published right now. But yea next month will be v08 c46 of Shion.
