In this rom-com, we are in for a long ride because Ayumu is an amateur shogi player while his crush, Urushi, is a pro. What makes this anime all the cuter is the fact that Urushi likes Ayumu too, however, she is waiting for him to profess his feelings. The teaser video is a beauty to watch and it shows the fans just what to expect from this rom-com.

The teaser shows a short clip of Ayumu and Urushi playing a casual game of shogi. Ayumu’s monolog tells us about his promise to himself as he tells Urushi that she’s cute, making her blush hard. In turn, Urushi reflects on how Ayumu always gets away with making her flustered by keeping a straight face. The trailer ends with Urushi telling Ayumu to meet after school, referring to their daily shogi matches.
