From the author of Teasing Master Takagi-san, here comes Soredemo Ayumu wa Yosetekuru, a Shogi rom-com manga written by Sōichirō Yamamoto. Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine has been serializing the series since March 2019 having a total of 7 volumes as of date.
From the author of Teasing Master Takagi-san comes another sweet couple’s comedy about Tanaka Ayumu and Yaotome Urushi. Tanaka vows to confess his feelings to Yaotome after he manages to defeat her in a game of shogi, but he’s a beginner at the game and Yaotome always beats him. Meanwhile, she keeps trying to get Tanaka to admit his feelings, but he rarely allows his poker face to slip.
Though the day of his victory is still nowhere to be seen, this is the story in which he may ‘checkmate’ her by other means.
