81 diver

My first introduction to shogi was seeing Shogi parlors in Kyoto. Seeing those drab environments never made we want anything to do with the game! It wasn’t until I stumbled across hachi-one diver in a used bookstore that I became interested and obsessed with shogi.

What isn’t there to like about hachi-one. You have maids, akiba, gambling, as well as strong emotions and ambitions. What really grabbed me about the comic was the intensity level. The art style isn’t glamourous or beautiful but the passion and intensity of the characters jumps off each page.
