March Comes in like a Lion- Anime Review

All I know of this series is that it's from the creator of Your Lie in April. It's been awhile since I have seen a slice of life drama, mostly because I'm not a huge fan of the genre. I did enjoy Your Lie in April though so maybe I'll enjoy this?


Rei Kiriyama, being one of the elite Shoji players, is under a lot of pressure from his adoptive family and the Shoji community. Wanting to escape the stressful home life he moves to Tokyo.

Not long after the move he meets a family of sisters and their grandfather who runs a wagashi shop. He quickly finds the normal family life he never had.


I couldn't get into this anime at all. I don't know if its the Shogi or the drama but even to the end I just didn't care for it. The 45 episodes felt like a slog to get through and while I giggled a couple of times it just wasn't for me. Some characters I kind of liked and some of the imagery was neat, the story itself just didn't grab me. If you like Shogi and tons of drama in everyday life this might tickle your fancy.
