Title: Chapter 16 Talking
Monjiyama: You're sente.
Monjiyama: We'll have time controls of "30 minutes".
Monjiyama: We've confirmed the conditions.
Monjiyama: If I win
aspire to become a "mangaka".
Monjiyama: If you win
doodle you drew
Paper: Hachi One-kun
Monjiyama: and replace "Naruzou-kun"
in the manga I'm writing
as the protagonist.
I've got no problems with this.
My series will end.
The ultimate humiliation.
Monjiyama: With this game either your or my
life will shift.
Monjiyama: Here we go~~~
Sugata: What the hell...?
Sugata: What kind of shogi does he play?
Whatever it is, I can't use my time in the opening.
First I'll fly at him with "technique mode"!
Sugata: What's he saying...?
I wonder what they're doing?
What's it called again?
Waitress: Shogi, right?
Sugata: What's his battle formation?
It's a shape I see a lot, but...
My opponent is
T/N: Literally "bear in the hole" or "Japanese badger". It uses a ranging rook strategy with the ou in the corner under the kyousha surrounded by several other pieces as seen there.
Sugata: In shogi nowadays
they say that if you can just assemble an anaguma
then you have a winning strategy.
Shogi strategy is similar to germs and vaccines.
An incredibly strong new strategy is born and spreads like wildfire. And then a strategy that exterminates it is born.
There's no such thing as a perfect strategy.
And when a strategy that exterminated this anaguma was born
it was called a revolution in shogi.
Sugata: The "Fujii System"! [quote bold]
This strategy crushes opponent the moment they form an anaguma.
A strategy that doesn't let you form an anaguma.
But to that "Fujii System" I have
Sugata: And I let him make an anaguma.
Sugata: Will it be a "weak anaguma" that quickly split the arena? [quote bold]
Or a boringly solid "strong anaguma"?
all of you.
Monjiyama: We made it into an anaguma!
We can win now! We can!
Monjiyama: Hey, don't be too optimistic!
Sugata: His voice is getting more and more audible.
No. He's raising his voice so I can hear it. ["so" in italics.]
Why's he been talking the whole time?
Monjiyama: Sorry for being so loud.
But I'm not the one talking.
It's the "pieces" that art talking. [quote bold]
Sugata: I guess you get guys like this once in a while...
I don't care anymore.
What it comes down to is strong or weak.
Monjiyama: I'd like to show you
what's going on in my head right now.
Monjiyama: Shut your eyes and take a look!
You're this close,
so you might be able to see.
Monjiyama: Close them.
Pieces: Here we go, Kaku-chan!
The solidness is wrong.
I'll leave the protecting to you.
Monjiyama: Could you see it?
Soon, in the story structure of "Introduction, development, turn, and conclusion",
we'll enter "turn"! [quote bold]
The temporary peace has ended.
Sugata: Same here. Soon, I'll

Newly Written Extra Manga
"The Legend of Jinno Shintarou"
Narration: Long ago
there were two things where the difference between "pro" and "amateur" were said to be the biggest.
Narration: And the other was
20 years ago
One shogi player challenged a pro.
He was recognized as having achievement of winning three consecutive Amateur Meijin Championships.
Narration: And a match against a pro kishi materialized.
His opponent was
the up-and-coming pro-kishi who had turned pro at age 14,
At that time, the day before
had his heart broken.
The day before.
Nikogami: If I...
Nikogami: Win against a pro,
please marry me!!!!
Tsuya: I'm sorry.
Nikogami: Please think about it a little more!
I'm betting my life, too!!!
Even this shogi idiot of an old man can definitely make you happy!
I'll prove my determination when I beat that pro tomorrow!
Nikogami: Please let me rub your breasts
if I beat the pro!
narration: "Tsuya" would later
give birth to "Soyo".
But even so,
Nikogami: Jinno won.
Iruka: I've lost...
Nikogami: No, that day, Jinno was..
an utter fierce god.
Since this time, he was known
as the amateur "god" that got a shot in on a pro.
