This looks like pure fluff this season. Pure Slice of Life? No thanks. I thought this would be an action anime about lions and rain…

How did you even reach at that conclusion??? This anime is about Rei being a professional Shogi player. Rain and Lions are nowhere to be seen.

This is going to be a cute, well balanced show. The style is very relaxing a la Flying Witch. Who directed this?

Akiyuki Shinbou! He did Hidamari Sketch, Madoka Magica, and basically all of the Monogatari series! Yay!
