Only for use by Mangatopia
There's a lot of use of these sorts of visual aids to give the audience an idea of what's going on without having to know tons about shogi. It's kind of the reason stuff like shogi and chess aren't major spectator sports because it's so hard to tell what's going on.

Title: Chapter 59 Manual Mode
Girl: You gotta make a decision soon~~
Which one're you gonna dooo?
Press a button!
What am I doing
sitting down like this...?
Guy: You would of course be doing manual mode, sir.
Suga: Am I really gonna play this?
I mean, I've played a lotta different kinds 'a shogi, but...
Box: Taking Photo
Voice: This is your character! [Heart]
Suga: Don't I get a choice?
Angel: Okay, Onegaishimaaasu! [Heart]
Suga: You're a freakin' machine.
Guy: Just touch the piece you want to move and then touch where you want to move it to make your pieces move. ["piece" and "where" in bold.]
Suga: Well, this feels weird, but
I guess it's not hard to play like this.
Don't underestimate shogi.
Guy: Okay, now we'll get to see a real Shinkenshi in action.
This game is connected to the internet, too. I'm one of the top ranked players in the whole country.
Guy: I'm top ranked in this game, but I'm not actually good at shogi.
See, in "Shogi Gakuen Quest" or 'Shou Que" for short,
the coolest thing is...
Guy: that while I'm a beginner at shogi,
by borrowing this shogi program that's said to reach the level of a pro,
I just need to choose cards
and it automatically
plays some uber cool shogi!!!
Girl: Here we gooo!!!
Sword: 4th File Hisha
Suga: That's me?

Top left: Castle
Suga: You can seriously
play shogi with stuff like that?
But the reason shogi is such a bottomlessly complex game
Suga: is right here, the center of the board!!!!
Suga: Like hell a machine like this
can keep up
with a human's reading of the game!!
Guy: I wonder if 'Shou Que" can beat a human.
Card: Mutual Attack
Girl: Come at me!!!
Guy: And next!
Card: Brilliant Move
Top left: Technique
Skirt: Brilliant Move
Guys: He used it!
During a mutual attack, he threw in a strange move!
That's a winning pattern for Hapita!!!
Guy: But, hey!
...that guy really is a Shinkenshi!
SFX: GAGA GAGAGA GAGAGAGA GAGAGAGAGA PASHIH PASHIH PASHIH PASHIH PASHIH PASHIH
Kids: They're evenly matched!!!
Suga: I see.
This thing's good.
It's at a level where an average Shinkenshi would stand no chance.
SFX: PASHIH PASHIH PASHIH PASHIH PASHIH PASHIH
Suga: That's all!
Kid: I lost...
Kids: That Shinkenshi's friggin' goooooood!!!!
