Description
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.

Pretty good, but not spectacular

Art is pretty good, story is okay; it's pretty good, but nothing spectacular either. A must read for shogi fans, however.
The ending kinda sucked for me, though. Predictable, didn't feel right to me. Other than that, a pretty good read.

This is going to be made into an anime! I'm really excited because from what I've read so far, it is very interesting even though Shougi is harder for me to comprehend then Go. biggrin

This is actually a more mature and intense take on the world of competitive Go than what you can see in staple series like Hikaru no Go. What makes the story more mature is the fact that the main character -- a girl, for a change -- has a dark past, and although she continues to be traumatized by it, it doesn't stop her from competing. I found Shion to be an intriguing and unique heroine. She's very young, but her analytical mind is that of a prodigy's, and it's wonderful to see her pit her strategies against other gifted players.

This manga is a must for any Go fan, or even just any fan of atypical heroines.

This manga is wonderful, I simply jump on the next scanlated chapter and wait for it inbetween. The art is good and the tension is kept up just as well, if not better than in Hikaru no Go. The game rules are more complex though so one doesn't pick them up as one goes along, will take a couple more volumes until I get the hang of it properly. smile

I love Shion's personality. The art and story are both very impressive. While I don't understand the Shougi at all, this manga still sucks me in
