-AND REI'S ACCIDENT CREATES A SCENT THAT DRAWS THE LADIES, GOOD JOB REI x)
- Noguchi is amazing x)
- Sensei-san giving a deep-meaningful speech to Rei about relying on others ;_;
- God, the fucking twist. IT LOOKS LIKE GOTOU WON and then you're like "OH NOOOO- w-wait, what, Shimada won?" but then in the world of shogi, it's the winner who's destroyed themselves and the loser had already known it and was preparing for it. God-damn Shimada looks like he's ready to give up life
- "I'm just so happy that snot's dripping from my eyes" rofl
- Shimada catching himself when his hometown people showed up and starting to get back in his groove ;_;
- And now the tables turned, like with the middle schooler wanting to ask Rei, now Rei wants to ask Shimada
- And they both say the same thing Happy tears

Chapter 33/Episode 16

Spoiler:

- The girls wanting sushi x)
- Rei going to the workshop
- Morio being a scary guy rofl
- "He has a tendency to glare"
- Morio and Nikkaidou not giving any ground rofl
- Rei being the voice of reason... AND THEN PUSHING UP HIS GLASSES AND GETTING RIGHT INTO IT

Enail wrote:Did the anime for these two:
Episode 8 (Ch 15-17):

-Oops, the last chapter should have been in here. He's even more jealous in the anime!
-Nikaidou is a terrifying but useful friend to have Shiny/thrilled
-Everyone being so moved by Nikaidou's speech Laughing
-this sunset-lit scene is really pretty
-the way his voice goes flat around her, like he's just shrinking himself down smaller inside, and Kyoko acts like everything's normal and friendly.
"I'd stab him in his sleep. Because I love him" Shudder
-Really like the last page in the manga

Spoiler:

- Nikkadou's effective teaching techniques Laughing
- The way Kyoko speaks is just absolute poison. It's scary as fuck because you know Rei doesn't totally realize what's happening. Distant thunder pale


E9 (Ch 18-19):

-That match against the old guy was agonizing. And hilarious.
-D-do they do the cat song every episode? Uh-oh
-that one blue-lit frozen moment by the river, so pretty
-YES! OLD GUY'S NOT QUITTING, SUCK IT KYOKO!
-Matsumoto's reveal that he doesn't want to quit so he doesn't have to help around the house rofl

Spoiler:

- The cat song is only in a few of them. I think they sometimes use it as time filler when they don't have enough to fit entire chapters in
- The backgrounds in the anime are so great <3
- I love when Rei was trying to sneak out the back and the Old Guy was already doing it x)
- His hilarious rant about the history of his hometown, and also remarking how Kyoko will become a "poison woman" Nod
- While they did play it off like a joke at the end because he didn't want to do chores, I thought this was one of the most well written moments of the entire series. This old guy who spent a lifetime doing this thing and can't hack it anymore still feels like it's joy of life and agony of death while doing it. Happy tears

Yeah, I don't seem to have commented on any of that, but it was a lovely, complicated look at what investing yourself into something means.

Watched a few of these, enjoying it so far.

ep 1-4:

-The visuals are really nice. That house feels super real.
-I like grandpa. All these characters are very likeable.
-The chess matches are not the most fascinating, but they're stylized enough with enough jokes to keep my attention. Rei's internal stuff about choosing chess instead of grief works for me too.
-The snail-slow pace of this show is kind of relaxing. I almost don't want there to be a plot or anything, just sequences of moments in these lives
-The Obon scene and especially the eggplant horses.  Happy tears
-Hina's description of Akari taking skinny things and making them fluffy got me in the feels. Totally see why she's #1 waifu
-And then Akari sugoi'ing over fluffy-ass Nikaidou made me literally lol rofl

I'll probably keep going on this, albeit sloooooowly.

Ch 20-21 (E10):

-Any time Kyoko's on scene there's that agonizing tension between her surface friendliness and his reactions.
-Ouch
-Christmas as a report card really captures that dynamic.
-him winning the match while mentally begging his opponent not to give up on his family Sad
-And then just screaming out his feelings

Ch 22-23 (E11):

-Akari's so unimpressedl Laughing
-Shogi dad actually sounding worried about him
-Akari and Rei both starting to cry as the new year hits
-THE NEW YEAR'S FOODS Shiny/thrilled
-the stickers on the drawer Happy tears

Ch 24-25 (E12):

-This bit
-"If my victories continue to decrease, eventually I won't have any place to belong" Sad
-Rei and his opponent stopping playing to sparkle at Smith's win Laughing
-Rei defending Kyoko in spite of everything  :/ But I can't help feeling bad for her either, her evil supposed boyfriend being married and calling her a stalker, that's pretty sad.

Spoiler:

- It's a really good chill show. Mostly. There's still things that are coming <.<
- I totally didn't see you identifying with someone who fixes up strays at all Cool
- But yeah, Akari is heavy-duty ultimate waifu material. She would probs make my Top 5

Spoiler:

- Every time Kyoko shows up, I end up liking the father less and less. She kind of never had a chance.
- That's such a sports-anime thing to do, which is very weird how it fits into shogi. Instead of "I REALLY WANT HERO TO SMASH THIS GUY" it's more like "I want hero to win... but god damn, if he wins, this other person loses something too." Rei just destroys whatever willpower and hope this guy had left after he pissed away everything else, and then Kyoko worms her poison tongue in deeper.


Ch 22-23 (E11):

-Akari's so unimpressedl Laughing
-Shogi dad actually sounding worried about him
-Akari and Rei both starting to cry as the new year hits
-THE NEW YEAR'S FOODS Shiny/thrilled

Spoiler:

That fucking episode. Team Kawamoto taking care of him, Akari being ultimate waifu, showing that his stepfather did call him, and then both of them kind of being wrecked on New Years Eve together ;_;

Also the postcards, especially from the Shogi Chairman rofl

Also I like that the Aunt got "shogi boy" something too, her rant about how she's using Akari's waifuness to frustrate the men at the hostess club into paying more money and how she's going t get all of it rofl

In addition to the things I said on the first page about this

Spoiler:

- In the anime, they make point of Rei hearing the empty air and the clock and all that, it was really effective in showing his transition back into the loneliness of his room from the family-like warmth he got with the Kawamotos
- Also you should probably totally definitely watch the scene where Momo tells him to do his best Lurking/sketchy

Ch 26-27 (E13):

-I'm glad to have more of Smith, it's kind of nice to see a regular, decent person in the shogi world, everyone else seems to be either completely over-the-top or an asshole.
-He even goes adopting kittens Heart
-the match against Shimada's the first one I've found tense.
-w-why is Nikaidou rooting against Rei?? No

Ch 28-29 (E14):

-Ouch, that loss Sad
-Dehydrated to that point? That's not good Uh-oh
-Sorry, man,, being an adult just means crying over boringer things Razz Poor kid, though Sad
-Definitely-not-Yashiro-sensei trying to look out for him
-Nikaidou is drawn like a little kid whenever he's around Shimada.
-

Alright, I'm close to caught up, I'll switch to watching the anime now and try and keep up.

e5:

-The dog was so sorry Sad
-I’ve never seen a show that meanders so slowly that you watch someone clean a toddler’s scratches in realtime. Super chill.
-What a miserable backstory. Poor foster siblings. Poor foster Rei.
-The cuckoo epiphany and the resulting actions taken… man, that’s one perceptive and self-sacrificing middle schooler. :/

e6:

-Sleeping through all your free time alone in a dark empty room does not carry even the faintest whiff of crippling depression.
-The swimming sequence really nailed what that headspace can be like, too.
-Having to beg the teacher to sugar-coat things Laughing
-Ah, that point in crippling depression where cruel, damning words from someone whose life you ruined just makes you go “yup”
-Prodigies running out of steam is always a compelling story template. That crushing sophomore slump.
-Dawwww Hina not having the restraint to even pretend she’s not worrying about him. Like big sis, like little sis. Heart (No shut up I don't identify with any of this at all in any way Uh-oh)

E15 (Ch 30-31):

-Woah, that new intro is a big mood shift! Some nice visuals, but I don't like the song much.
-Uh, are you really calling shogi-Dad's family "a good family?"  Uh-oh
-Poor Kyoko Sad
-Love that 'sea of trees' visual
-Teacher sending him off and then panicking over whether he has too many absences Laughing
-That scene with Rei and Kyoko when Gotou comes out was really good, the bare scenery, the  tension, and then the sound of breaking glass
-That little moment where he turns around and just pats her hair gently
-The grandfather's memory rofl
-THE WAGASHIIIIII  ...I might have to go make something after this. But they won't be pretty Sad
-Hina's such a sweet kid
-The teacher's help, and Rei's expression while thanking him rofl
-Aww, Nikaidou's worried about Rei
-Rei started the friendship, it's his own damn fault! Shiny/thrilled
-The ending art is niiiiice

Good episode!

E16 (Ch 32-33):

-Sensei is getting scarier and scarier rofl
-The chemistry club rofl
-The sad violin music playing when he requests their help rofl
-Trying to get Rei to make friends and giving him life advice
-And then he realizes the sisters have never relied on him for anything
-I like the way the Kawamoto family is a sort of shortcut straight to belonging, but then at the same time, he's gradually building genuine relationships with all the people who started out as random annoying weirdos, too. Some things are obvious and some take time and take you by surprise.
-When he says that it's Shimada who won Shocked
-He joined the study group!  cheers
-THE WAGASHIIIIIIII Shiny/thrilled
-"I'll just suddenly show up at his apartment and stuff inari in his mouth"  Laughing
-Shimada  introducing the other guy Laughing
-It's nice to see him getting enthusiastic about shogi with people on his level and enjoying himself
-Rei and Nikaidou freaking out about the duck  Laughing They really are friends now!

Every time I have a long plane ride these days I just download and watch anime. Thanks a lot you nerds, now no one on my redeye flights thinks I'm cool

e7:

-Heh, that kid may just be a middle schooler but he’s twice Rei’s size, I’d be intimidated too
-Rei is an ultimate bro for bringing this guy to the house for curry. You’re welcome, Hina.
-Hahaha, Nikaidou’s heartfelt scolding Laughing
-They should call this show Everyone’s Just So Worried about Rei

e8:

-Oh god this cat song No
-All the shogi guys’ reaction to Nikaidou’s heartfelt scolding Laughing
-The kids love his shogi book Heart
-…Kyoko just shows up and soaks her feet in his bathtub? That’s an insanely disconcerting power play for some reason, super uncomfortable
-What the heck kind of skeezy stuff is she up to smelling his blankets and borrowing his clothes
-No no stop all this face stroking this is getting weird No
-Huh. Is she just out to sabotage him, or is there some weird additional creep stuff here?

e9:

-Oh, poor grandpa.
-Poor Rei having to beat sad grandpa. “At least make me respect you!”
-No, is there going to be a cat song every episode now? No
-I think she’s already a poisonous woman, grandpa.
-His little mortality career’s-end speech was pretty poignant
-Ohhhh OWNED, grandpa’s not retiring, take that, attempted emotional sabotage Cool

e10:

-Oh, I see. We are getting into some real creep stuff with Kyoko. What on earth was that flashback?
-“A mean old teacher! Oh! No!” got a lol.
-She’s really pretty good at pouring poison in his ear.
-Hey Rei,

-Oh, just going to scream.

e11:

some lachrymose personal stuff re: this episode:
Tonight I watched this episode all alone in my aunt’s house the night before my uncle’s funeral. A drunk truck driver hit him too. I remember being taken care of in this house when I was a sick as a kid. The busy warmth of family. The things people say while they’re taking care of you, that you remember after they’re not around to take care of you anymore, but maybe you’re saying them to someone you’re taking care of. Watching this episode while eating a plate of the foods people bring for funerals, thinking of the foods we used to eat for new year’s to bring health and money. This one hit pretty hard.
-Love the military precision with which they kidnap sick people, like they’re used to it
-It’s nice to get more Kawamoto family context with the aunt.
-I am glad that shogi dad called, and that Rei got some postcards.
-I wonder what happened with the sisters’ dad.
-By the time Akari and Rei had each other crying I was a goner.
-Hey… Sangatsu block… 3-gatsu… I don’t know enough Japanese to know whether this is a pun of some kind but I have my suspicions

E16 (Ch 32-33):

-When he says that it's Shimada who won Shocked

Spoiler:

I loved how it just let you know the difference between the Shogi world and the sports world. In the sports world you're more beaten up physically, but shogi, you mentally wreck yourself to get there

E17 (Ch 34-36):

-I didn't expect Nikaidou to be so thoughtful. I like him more the more we see him.
-He's been giving his winnings to Shogi Dad Sad Well, at least Shogi Dad's doing the decent thing about it
-The Chairman is scary Shudder
-I think you're projecting onto those fish, Rei Uh-oh
-Standing up to Kyoko and then Momo shows up and he's thrown off course, I'm not sure whether it's funny or uncomfortable
-Man, Kyoko's good at getting straight to his weak points
-GO HINA!
-The way his glasses go opaque while Kyoko's sitting there eating and criticizing the food the sisters made.
-Kyoko with the water ripples over her, with her voice catching as she talks :\
-that last scene was really pretty

And Werel, yeah, pun correctly detected, "san" is 3, "sangatsu" is the 3rd month, March, hence the lion Disapproving

e12:

-This new intro sequence sure does give this show a different tone.
-That creeping isolation clock-ticking sequence was pretty effective. “Walk, don’t think”
-If Momo told me to do my best I don’t think I could ever do anything but my best ever again Heart
-I don’t like this Gotou guy :/
-Man, Rei sure does have some tough-to-shake misplaced loyalties if he’s ready to get beat up for Kyoko again  :/
-New outro is really pretty.

e13:

-What the hell we’re like 5 minutes into the episode and Smith is still eating
-He’s… still… eating
-SMITH WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU YOU CAN’T JUST EAT A TOMATO LIKE IT’S AN APPLE, GROSS
-I like his attitude. “How dare Rei assume I’m going to lose—oh wait, I know I’m going to lose”
-I was rooting for Plan A, let’s see Akari at the club some more. But Plan C is 90% cuter
Enail wrote:the match against Shimada's the first one I've found tense.
SAME
-I assume Shimada is not literally Nikkaidou’s brother, so what’s their connection and why is Nikkaido backstabbing?

e14:

-“He’s a rank A player and I treat him like a side character?” Yeah, whoops, you should’ve finally looked up there a lot sooner
-Smith is awfully perceptive. I like him more and more.
-Bahaha Smith just melting over that kitten
-Dehydration when this character’s motif is drowning, got it, see what you did there
-“I’m even terrible at depression.” Sad
-No.. that’s not how you become an adult, and being an adult doesn’t mean not crying. Sad
-This teacher is hilarious, and 90% more so after you pointed out that it’s Toaski’s voice actor
Enail wrote:-Nikaidou is drawn like a little kid whenever he's around Shimada.
Yeah, it’s pretty cute Smile

e15:

-Every scene with Kyoko is just brutal. The broken glass.
-And he thinks it’s his fault :/
-I hope Shimada’s sea of trees strangles Gotou.
-“Maybe I’m not qualified to be a teacher” Laughing No, you definitely have this mentorship thing down.
-Goddamn. Your job as Kyoko’s younger foster brother is not to protect her from her father. :/
-The establishing shots that look like watercolors are really nice.
-Grandpa’s youthful performance failures Laughing
-Love the Old Man Showdown
-“If I said ‘ask a friend,’ the exams would be over and you’d still be looking for a friend” M-M-M-MEGABURN
-Rei bringing Nikkaidou that water was like the cuckoo moment. A kid being more generous than he ought to know how at that age.
-Nikkaidou looking to Shimada to explain what a tiff with your mistress means Laughing

e16:

-These mustachioed nerds thinking they can science-game out what girls will like, then Rei nails it by accident Laughing
-Sensei’s teamwork and reciprocity speech Heart
-Geez, shogi really wrecks you up mentally. They’re drawing Shimada like a dang corpse here.
-Nikkaidou’s little suit is adorable
-Now I want inari…
-THESE CHESS ARGUMENTS rofl
-Hahaha, as soon as I started thinking “oh no the duck, the duck!” they said it. And then DIDN’T dive in to save the duck, what is WRONG with them

e17:

-Nikkaidou’s Griffith-like certainty Shiny/thrilled
-The chairman trying to get Rei to blow his money on cigs and women, oh my gosh Laughing
-Rei blowing Kyoko’s cover, uh-oh.
-W-where did Souya come from? Uh-oh
-Carefree Souya vs. Care-overburdened-to-the-point-of-ulcers Shimada, GO
-MOMO TO THE RESCUE. “Will he get bullied?” AWWWW
-Holy shit, Kyoko is made of poison. “Is this the next home?”
-Yessss, Hina, make him take those inari
-NO KYOKO DON’T EAT THE INARI IT’S FOR REI  Angry
-“Don’t tell me it’s the kindergartener” Laughing
-It’s kind of a challenge to find any sympathy for Kyoko despite her backstory, despite her pathetic vulnerable moments, because she’s so effective at breaking other people’s glasses.

E18 (Ch37-38):

-Nikaidou and other guy's discussion getting more and more dramatic until they're going at e/o with lightsabers surrounded by flames Laughing
-And then the show acknowledging it's just because they're talking too much and it'd be boring Laughing
-"Or I'll smack you" and a shot of the cactus rofl
-Aww, Shimada's taking in interest in Rei specifically
-I really liked the quiet little discussion while Rei and Shimada are getting set up to play. It's so understated but you can feel their friendship/mentorship growing underneath the ordinary talk.
-Also, Shimada's home town sure is pretty
-The stylized ocean during their game Shiny/thrilled
-Sensei's speech about how much Rei's actually been doing  Happy tears
-And then his reaction Sad
-and then Sensei scaring him into agreeing to going for oden Laughing Lovestruck
-Momo hiding behind Hina
-Rei explaining things with Kyoko as just siblings fighting doesn't quite cover it, but it's a good try :/

This episode felt like it was all about the connections he's built up. Nothing much happening or even the kind of 'rescue him when he's sick' or 'we're best friends' big dramatic displays of affection, but it felt like all the people in his life were genuinely paying attention, noticing him in different ways.

e18:

-Nikkaidou’s faces during this practice Laughing
-Science fail! Wrong lightsaber for Vader
-Cactus threats Laughing
-Nikkaidou IS a fluffy manapua rofl Please just keep showing these nerds fighting, this is great
-Flooded the bathtub Disapproving
-Why is Loud Senpai aware of student parties he’s not invited to?
-“I really think this falls into the realm of bullying.” rofl
-Senpai making Rei Feel Things with his wasted slacker youth Heart
-Hina is really way too relieved that Kyoko is his sister. Has she got mild designs on someone other than Baseball Boy?
-No, Akari, they don’t at all seem like brother and sister.
-Oh no, Shimada can’t go home Sad

Very much so. A nice slow-build payoff for the loneliest guy on earth.

E18

Spoiler:

- Nerd fights x)
- I like that Rei has a feel for what's going on but can't quite communicate it. Feels very "geniusy"
- THAT FLOOD ANIMATION HOLY SHIT
- Sensei listing all the thing's Rei's accomplished, and then the screen going blurry because Rei can't hold it in. Just destroyed me ;_;
- The girls showing up to inquire about The Witch x)
- And of course, Souya is a fucking monster

Ep18:
Is anyone else getting the impression that Souya is in the same seat as Rei? I got a somehow sad impression of him from the previous episode...

Spoiler:
Yeah, I get the same feeling. Rei with the snow imagery, which is associated with Souya, in the new intro replacing the water imagery in the old one supports that, too.

Spoiler:

Snow is just harder water. Souya is probably Rei without the warmth of the Kawamoto family, his water just kept getting colder and thicker silent
