Does anyone know of any manga about chess? I know there's a manga about Go (Hikaru no Go), so I was wondering if there's one about chess? I would really like to read one.

I can't think of any chess specifically, but Shion no Ou is shogi and that's probably as close as you can get without actually being chess.

Mm, don't know about chess, but maybe something like Sangatsu no Lion or Saki would go?

Only one and not the main? Maybe it shouldn't be put as a gender bender?

It's relevant to the plot, so the tag is ok.

On topic, I hadn't seen any chess manga around, closes would be some shogi manga or some manga where the characters ocasionally play chess.

Yea it's important to the plot, also the character that crossdresses is an important character in it, so gender bender should stay.
And, I don't think you'll find a lot of chess manga, shogi defnitely, since shogi is pretty much the japanese equivalent of chess.

To where?

I've read the first chapter. I don't think the guy does that because he feels like it, or has a fetish...

I don't think you should judge a comic before reading it, but whatever, there are so many out there that you just need to find the ones that appeal to YOU.

I would also like to see a manga in Japanese about chess. It's a popular game worldwide, and I would like to read about strategy as well as outside, emotional conflicts, like, maybe their parents forced them to play chess or something like that. It would be a great plot.


I'll do my best to look, I'll let you know if I find anything.

If not...Maybe we can write one? My drawing isn't that great and my Japanese fiction writing is..way under par... but maybe if we work together, we can get something presentable?


Anyway we should search for a manga about chess. I'd read it.

En Passant has a chess backdrop, but it's not about chess (no chess tournaments so far...).
