On a whim, first-year Ayumu Tanaka quits
the Kendo Club to join the illegitimate Shogi Club. Urushi Yaotome, the
president of the club and a master of shogi, is thrilled to finally have
a playing partner. As Ayumu's upperclassman, Urushi endeavors to be his
shogi mentor and student role model. Too often, however, she finds
herself blushing with embarrassment! Stone-faced and honest, Ayumu sees
no issue with calling Urushi "cute." Although Ayumu likes her, he
refrains from confessing and promises himself to first beat her in a
game of shogi.
Through school life and shogi games, the two students have many
hilarious and heart-warming adventures. Ayumu enjoys every second with
Urushi, but he is still a long way from beating her in shogi. With the
commitment he made to himself, will Ayumu ever get the chance to confess
his feelings to Urushi?
