Title: Chapter 348 LOVE IS ALL
Box: In the endgame of a shogi match,
players throw different techniques at each other,
and the more they go back and forth...
the more they exchange being pushed to the brink of death...
Box: and the more they send that back to the opponent...
much like an old video game where a ball goes faster the more it bounces...
or like karma accumulating more and more over time...
their final attack...
becomes more furious!!!!
Box: That board
was brought to a state...
Box: where Sugata had made such a comeback
that any more comebacks
The thing everyone
was thinking was...
if she hadn't taken that hisha,
'Why did she take the hisha?'
'whys' in shogi.
Box: Because a game of shogi
belongs only to the two people playing it.
someone who achieved a record that is unlikely for anyone to ever reach again,
a great giant of the Showa era that achieved the "rank of Meijin" for a total of 18 periods,
Ooyama Yasuharu, said...
'Humans are creatures that make mistakes.'
Box: Ooyama played shogi on the premise that his opponents would make mistakes.
Especially in the endgame, Ooyama
and use every other means that was humanly possible
all without ever collapsing himself
all enemies that came before him.
The ones that confronted Ooyama saw something terrifying
that only those that faced those battles know.
Narr: When two humans have a game board between them,
the scenery visible between to each of them is different.
The old, the young, the men, and the women all clash with one another.
It's there that the everlasting appeal of shogi lies. ["there" in italics]
What Soyo saw...
was something that could not have been visible to anyone else.
'I love you'.
Shogi Piece: I love you ["hisha" faded out, "I love you" fades in]
That was the move
that saved Soyo from being a "shogi demon".
Soyo: I have lost.
I made it back...
Soyo: I love you...
even more than shogi.
Morine: In 500 years of shogi history, has anyone ever kissed over a shogi board?
Suzuki: I doubt it.
Suga: will defeat Tanio.
