Summary and Preview

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.

Review by paladin52
Fascinating mix of game-play, high level competition, rivalry and a murder mystery. If this seems quite a stew, you are correct. However, it is pulled off smoothly and with finesse. The main character, Shion, is mute, from a young age, due to finding her parents murdered. The few clues seem to point to someone who played shogi (similar to chess). Her neighbors adopted her. She was taught and had an affinity for playing shogi. Now in her teen's, she turns professional on the second attempt. She has two main rivals in her age group. Each one has a distinctive style of play. The three young professionals have garnered interest from their older peers.

The series was turned into an anime series that started October, 2007. Permalink " "
