Title: Chapter 54 Arm Strength
Sumi: So you're getting into a battle of arm strength with me in shogi? ["battle of arm strength" bold.]
An irresistible offer.
Sumi: This has suddenly gotten interesting.
Is this what you meant by saying you'd predicted this far?
From the beginning...
on my own turf...
Sumi: to defeat me as we attacked each other?!
The calm, cool Ukeshi-san is...
Kiri: She actually may have been able to win if she'd stuck to her specialty "Defensive Shogi"
Soyo: In real life...
in real life, my arm strength isn't enough to beat a man.
in shogi, my arm strength
Sumi: Perhaps this really is
a 10 million shogi game.
SFX: ZAH ZAH ZAH
Kuru: Enough alreadyyyy!
Suga: He's gone into his first long think.
Sumi: I see...
You're prepared quite an annoying move.
first I move.
Sumi: If I eat this juicy, delicious-looking Kin here,
your kaku escaping will be trouble
Sumi: what happens...
Sumi: if I eat the kaku?
Sumi: Do you have a move then?
That was the first move I predicted, but...
that move has no future!
Sumi: This small Silver Crown room will be hard to approach.
Suga: He's right.
Narration: The 'Silver Crown' castle's special privilege
A gyoku in this position, strangely, will mysteriously stay there uncaptured until to the endgame.
Bubbles: This is also a small silver crown room.
Small Silver Crown Room
Sumi: And now...
Kiri: And now
Sumi: It can't be caught.
Sumi: Even if you come at me that way, it's all predictable...
With this "early escape"
Sumi: If I meet a 9-6 Fu's capture
with an 8-5 Kei...
my path to escape will open!
Suga: She can't win!
Suga: A devilish move!!!!
Soyo: If you'd gotten that 8-5 Kei earlier
you'd have won.
The odds were 50:50
Soyo: now it's not looking good for you.
Sumi: No, if I had done 8-5 Kei earlier
you had the 7-3 Kin move to counter it!
Soyo: ...Still, you would survive.
You were pushed by my pressure and sought a safe win...
A safe win?
Soyo: This is...
Soyo: the arm strength
I can't believe it but...
Sumi: I have lost.
