Sports anime are usually watched to see someone push their limits. Shogi is different in that it features the same concept, but pits protagonists against players presented as elites. Moreover, shogi is not a sport in the typical sense of the word, but a board game where one uses all his intelligence and tries to lead the other player to victory.

Shogi is a classic Japanese game similar to chess with a few key differences. The rules are quite easy to learn on YouTube and once someone knows them, it makes the anime even better. However, basic knowledge is not required to enjoy Shogi. Quite the contrary, fans often watch these anime to learn about the origins of the characters without ever paying attention to the painting itself.

The audience is able to decipher the boards, the potential moves, and see how easily a character can turn the game around. Often the characters explain the strategy, and the viewer feels really smart while watching. There’s nothing more satisfying than watching the final match and knowing how it’s going to unfold.

Characters who play Shogi are known for their high intelligence. Like Shikamaru Nara, he is not only good at Shogi, but has also proven himself to be a fine strategist in the Naruto’sseries. It’s good to know the qualities of a Shogi player because then they turn out to be cool and composed. Very intelligent and precise in his thoughts and movements.

Anime that features Shogi do a great job of showing a character overcoming difficult experiences, much like in Mars is coming like a lion. In Mars is coming like a lion, a young Rei Kiriyama loses his parents at a young age and is taken in by his uncle who is a world famous Shogi player. Things get complicated quickly because his uncle prefers Kiriyama to his own children. Kiriyama earns enough money to move out and take care of himself, and he meets a group of friends who truly support him no matter what. Along with studying Shogi, it’s a great anime that focuses on personal growth and overcoming the struggles attributed to growth.


Unfortunately, well-known Shogi-focused titles are limited. Mars is coming like a lion, Shion No Ou and Ryou’s work is never done are all based on the popular board game. Shion No Ou is a Shogi with a cult. After the murder of the protagonist’s parents, no evidence remains at the crime scene other than a single piece of Shogi. This leads to the protagonist pursuing Shogi, assuming the murderer was also a Shogi player.

Many complex feelings surround Ryou’s work is never done. Ryuuou’s title means “the dragon king”. It is only awarded to those who can reach the top of the Shogi world. Yaichi Kuzuryuu wins this title, but unfortunately most members of the Shogi world do not recognize it. They don’t think he’s worthy and he sets out to make sense of his name.


Unfortunately, while all of this is going on, he also forgot that he told a little girl named Ai Hinatsuru that if he won the title, he would make her his disciple. Considering the age difference between the two characters, as Hinatsuru obviously has blossoming feelings for him despite his young age. It’s very much a loli fanservice anime, but aside from its controversial elements, the gameplay elements are incredibly well done.

There is another anime that fits the theme of scratching that intellectual itch and called Hikari no go. A Go player’s ghost is stuck inside Hikari’s grandfather’s Go board, and when he touches it, the ghost comes out to haunt him. Now that they’re together, they can play games of Go, alternating between the two as Hikari Shindou hones her diamond in raw abilities.


It’s an amazing thing when a character who’s been through so much can get completely lost in a game. Just focusing on the board in front of them without letting any other intrusive thoughts get in the way. Any board game anime centered around Shogi, Go, or card games like Karuta is a must-watch if viewers love Sports anime.

Andover resident heads for junior chess championship | Merrimack Valley https://trikimailua.com/andover-resident-heads-for-junior-chess-championship-merrimack-valley/ Sun, 03 Jul 2022 10:00:00 +0000 https://trikimailua.com/andover-resident-heads-for-junior-chess-championship-merrimack-valley/ Carissa Yip was around six years old when she started playing chess.

Carissa Yip was around six years old when she started playing chess. Although her interest started earlier, it was around this time that she managed to convince her parents to help her learn to play.

Her first opponent was her father, who learned to play so he could teach his daughter. After that, Yip said, she made her dad play her every day.

“I lost every time,” she said.

At the time, Yip said she was a “bad loser” and asked her mom, ask her dad, to throw a match. But Yip’s father refused and the losses continued.

About six months after learning to play the board game, Yip won his first game.

A few months later, Yip said his father was getting tired of the games.

Yip recalled her dad saying something like, “I don’t want to play, I’m going to take you to a tournament.

So Yip and his father went to a local chess club.

“I was playing my very first tournament and I played pretty well I guess,” Yip said, noting that she played pretty well. The tournament director told her father that she should play in the next state championship for children under eight.

Yip took second place in the championship.

“I, seven, was very happy with it,” Yip said. “It was the first time I received a trophy. When I was a kid, I really liked shiny things.

After that first tournament, Yip continued to shine, becoming the youngest woman to become a pundit at age nine and the youngest woman to become a national master at age 11. She also broke the record for the youngest woman to beat a grandmaster. She beat grandmaster Alexander Ivanov at the New England Open when she was just 10 years old.

Now 18, Yip, an Andover resident and Phillips Academy alumnus, will be one of 10 entrants in the United States Junior Championship. She enters as the wild card of the tournament.

The tournament will take place at the Saint Louis Chess Club, located in Saint-Louis. It will last from July 6 to July 16. The event is by invitation only and will see participants compete for $20,000 and $6,000 in scholarships, a Chess Club spokesperson said.

The tournament will be another of many for Yip, but she said all tournaments manage to be different from each other.

“My opponents are different every time, the matches are different every time. As a person, I’m different every time,” Yip said.

In this tournament, Yip will be the only woman, which she says adds “a bit of pressure”.

Yip said his favorite part of chess is its “creative” or even “artistic” side. Yip said this part is often underestimated because most people think of chess as a very scientific or mechanical game. Yip said an example of this creative side was evident when humans played chess with computers. While Yip said the best computer can beat the best human chess player, there are still situations where a human will be able to come up with a better move than a computer.

“That says a lot about creativity within chess,” she said. “You can play it however you want, achieve whatever you have in mind, whatever design you want. But there is still a structure to it.

The glorious summer months seem to slip by so quickly. Here are some memorable excursions to include before the kids go back to school.

Five decades of family fun culminates with the golden anniversary of Kings Island in Mason, Ohio. With the introduction of Orion, Kings Island’s longest, tallest and fastest steel roller coaster in 2020, there are now 15 roller coasters to scream with joy on. The Beast, the longest wooden roller coaster in the world, just got longer. Off-season work extended it a few feet and accentuated the first drop.

Kings Island also includes Planet Snoopy, an award-winning children’s area, and Soak City, a 33-acre water park. Summer evenings are crowned with a final fireworks display of 200 synchronized drones, bursts of fire and laser projections.

Swish around America’s first rotating waterslide in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin

Water slide enthusiasts will definitely want to try the innovative slide, Medusa’s Slidewheel, a huge water slide that spins like a Ferris wheel, found at Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park Resort. Up to four people can wade through a raft for 96 seconds, experiencing G-force and airtime as they glide around a series of spinning tubes. Mt. Olympus has also expanded its indoor water park. The outdoor wave pool is one of the largest in the world with nine foot waves every 90 seconds.

Rolling around Madison, Wisconsin

Want to tackle a wet, wacky, and wild sport that’s sure to make you laugh? Do your best to balance yourself on a floating, spinning log in Lake Wingra with Madison Log Roll. Young and old alike will enjoy this lumberjack sport. Free classes are available from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday to Thursday.

While in Madison, stay at the hip Hotel Indigo, a former paint factory now splashed with colorful murals. Tweens and foodies will eat on a Bike n’ Bites Food Tour with Madison Eats, sampling seven food and drink samples while pedaling through the city on a guided e-bike tour. Start at Garver Feed Mill for samples of Ian’s Pizza (known for its mac and cheese pizza) or KOSA Spa’s vegan Indian cuisine. Also in Garver, check out Roll Play, an Asian street food board game cafe. Sip bubble tea while playing over 150 board games. Rent kayaks at nearby Olbrich Park.

Vegetarian in Rockford

Rockford lives up to its dubbed City of Gardens. Anderson Japanese Gardens offer a tranquil landscape of 12 acres with flowers and waterfalls dotted with stone pathways. The Japanese Summer Festival at the end of July features unique performances and cultural demonstrations.

Visit Rock Cut State Park for over 3,000 acres of space for picnicking, hiking and camping. Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens on the Rock River features a beautiful 10-mile recreational trail decorated with sculptures and parkland.

When you’re ready to eat, you’ll find plenty of vegan options, including Pig Minds Brewery, America’s first vegan brewery. The Zoodle Spicy Peanut Tofu Bowl is delicious, while its 10-beer flight is a generous tasting. Rue des Prairies Brewery has a fantastic patio along the Rock River, and the kids can’t get enough of their arcade games. Have brunch at Norwegian. Families eat breakfast treats like the cinnamon Swedish knot. Looking for a place to stay? The Embassy Suites By Hilton Rockford Riverfront is a hip, modern hotel with bright downtown views, an indoor pool, and a hot tub.

Ride the Waves on Your California Vacation

If a California beach vacation is calling your name, Huntington Beach, aka Surf City USA, is the perfect place to hang 10 this summer. The Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort, with its relaxing atmosphere and waterslides, offers family accommodations that will wow your team.

From there, take a short drive to Buena Park for Knott’s Berry Farm, California’s original theme park. The rides range from crazy coasters to kiddie rides with Snoopy. Our family’s favorites are Jaguar!, a glide over a Mayan-themed temple, and the Pony Express, a unique ride that starts quickly on “horseback”. Stay at Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel so you can take a mid-day pool break, then come back for more rides.

In nearby Santa Ana, the little ones love Santa Ana Zoo for its monkeys, train ride and carousel.

Tabletop games have been around for a very long time, with the very first recorded tabletop game being released over 4,500 years ago. Love for the genre has grown steadily over time, as it’s a great way to bring people together for a fun and creative evening of socializing without having to leave the house.



RELATED: The 10 Best Board Game Expansions, Ranked

There’s at least one tabletop game for everyone, no matter what type they’re interested in, with the anime-based market flourishing over the past few decades. If it’s even a semi-successful anime franchise, it’s likely that a tabletop game was created based on it. The anime is known for its incredibly unique world-building and storytelling, so many of these concepts can be turned into interesting and engaging tabletop games.

ten Cowboy Bebop: Space Serenade lets players join the Bebop crew

Cowboy Bebop: Space Serenade is published by Don’t Panic Games; the game lets players take on the role of one of the iconic members of the Bebop Crew. It’s a competitive deck-building game for two to four players, where players compete to prove they’re the best bounty hunter.

To do this, players collect the most reputation points at the end of Cowboy Bebop: Space Serenade. The game itself ends whenever Vicious is defeated or forced to flee. Players gradually build their decks over the course of the game to become strong enough to defeat him.

9 Death Note: Confrontation brings Light&L’s cat-and-mouse dynamics into a tabletop game

For Death threat fans who have always wanted to experience the cat-and-mouse hunt between Light and L, look no further than Death Note: Confrontation. It is a two-player detective type game, in which one player takes the role of L, while the other takes the role of Kira.

Kira’s job is to eliminate the targets and earn enough points to ultimately win the game, while L must use the clues gathered from these kills to piece together Kira’s true identity before he can. Each player is given a specified notebook, marked “L” or “Kira”, to record their discoveries as they play.

8 Sailor Moon Crystal: Dice Challenge is a short and fun dice roller

Sailor Moon Crystal: Dice Challenge is an incredibly simple game, but that doesn’t take away from its charm. It is traditionally a game of two to eight people, although larger groups can be accommodated due to the nature of the game itself.

Players each take one of a total of 24 character cards, selecting them as their playable character for the game. During “battle”, players take turns rolling the dice, with the ultimate goal being to capture all opponent’s dice and gain a victory token. Three tokens mean the game is won.

seven Attack On Titan: The Last Stand lets players act as the heroes or the Titan

Attack on Titan: The Last Stand is made by the same company that made Cowboy Bebop: Space Serenade, and it can be played with anywhere from two to five players. One player acts as the Titan, while the other players act as heroes trying to take him down.

RELATED: The 10 Best Disney Board Games

Attack on Titan: The Last Stand comes with reasonably sized Titan miniatures that are assembled before play, with ledges players can scale as they get closer to knocking it down. Players play two attack cards per turn, one face up and one face down, and must use both dice rolls and strategic positioning to avoid or get close enough to ground attacks.

6 Sword Art Online: Sword Of Fellows is an anime-accurate dice roller

Sword Art Online: The Companions Sword allows players to control one of six main characters from Sword Art Online, but it’s only a two to four player game. Each turn, a player selects another player to use as their “support” and both roll a pair of dice, then decide which to keep and which to reroll.

Players then use their rolled dice to launch coordinated attacks on the enemy, while trying to minimize the amount of counterattack damage they take in return. Sword Art Online: The Companions Sword is considered an enjoyable game, but the final boss ensures that the only player that matters is the one controlling Kirito, which doesn’t make for a super engaging multiplayer experience – even if it fits the series.

5 Tokyo Ghoul: Bloody Masquerade is all about who can bluff best

Tokyo Ghoul: Bloody Masquerade is another anime-inspired tabletop game created by Don’t Panic games. It can fit four to eight players, with 15 total playable characters for players to choose from.

Players can take on the role of a human, a ghoul, or an investigator. In Tokyo Ghoul: Bloody Masquerade, the Ghoul and Investigating Players attempt to track each other down. Humans win the game if they manage to collect multiple copies of the same card. This game is a game of deduction, and bluffing is sure to happen all around the table.

4 Naruto Shippuden: The Board Game Pits Players Against the Akatsuki

Naruto Shippuden: The Board Game is a perfect choice for those who have always wanted to embody one of their favorite Leaf Village shinobi. In this two to six player game, players can take on the role of Naruto, Sakura, Kakashi, Rock Lee, Sai, or Shikamaru.

The ultimate goal of Naruto Shippuden: The Board Game is to stop the Akatsuki from reviving the Tailed Beasts – the final showdown against them becomes more difficult for everyone they have at their disposal. Players will also need to think carefully about their next move as they travel across the board; invisible threats lurk around every corner.

3 Pokémon Master Trainer lets players embark on a journey through Kanto

For fans who have always wanted to travel through Kanto and get to the Indigo League Champion in tabletop style, look no further than Pokémon Master Trainer. It can be played with anywhere from two to six players, with each player getting their own different colored Ash figure to represent them.

RELATED: The 10 Rarest Board Games, Ranked

On players’ path to championing the Indigo League, they’ll be able to build their own team of Pokémon while collecting item cards that can provide helpful buffs during battle. If the trainers meet on the way, they can also face each other.

2 My Hero Academia: Plus Ultra! Allows players to compete for the top hero spot

My Hero Academia: Plus Ultra! is a recent treat for fans of the my hero academia anime and manga, released in 2022. It can be played with two to four players, with players each controlling a different Class 1-A student.

By defeating villains, recruiting allies, and surviving encounters, players in My Hero Academia: Plus Ultra! will gradually earn hero points, with dice rolls determining whether players succeed. The first player to reach a total of 20 hero points eventually wins the game.

1 One Piece: Water 7 sees players repairing their ship before time runs out

One Piece: Water 7 is a French tabletop game, but English instructions are included and reviews say they’re relatively easy to follow. Two to four players must work together to rescue the kidnapped Robin and repair their ship.

After a certain number of turns, waves of Aqua Laguna will begin to overtake the board and players will fail if they cover the entire board before the ship is built. If the players succeed, the player who earns the most victory points throughout their game time is the winner.

‘Gatlopp’ is the Swedish word for ‘gauntlet’, and in a new horror-comedy of the same name, a group of old friends are reunited for the first time in years – and coerced by a seemingly innocuous board game to run a glove. If they don’t complete the game – which comes to life with dark, hilarious, larger-than-life challenges – they’ll all be trapped playing the game forever… in hell, of course. One of those friends is Sam, a young woman played by Emmy-Raver Lampman, who finds herself trapped with people who used to be her best friend…and trying to decide if she’s ready to die with them if it happens. boils down to this.

This dynamic was part of what made the storyline so appealing to Lampman. She told ComicBook.com that getting into that headspace was more fun and challenging than just playing the typical group of sitcom friends who were joined at the hip until the game started.

“That’s one of the biggest things that drew me to this movie was the dynamic between this group of friends,” Lampman said. “Their relationship goes back a few decades, but there’s been a huge rift and they all, at this point where we meet them, have something to hide, and there’s this anxious, slightly chaotic energy, because they’re all doing their best to keep the secrets that they have and then slowly as the movie goes on everything starts to come undone and their walls start to crumble a bit the more they are put into these extreme scenarios. There has to be this fundamental essence, that they all have this chemistry of being what used to be a very strong group of friends, but that’s not where we meet them, and I like to play with them without be comfortable in their skin when the movie starts.”

It also means the stakes feel a bit more real. In a comedy, it can be difficult to sell life or death stakes, but in the case of gatloppa long separation from other characters means that no one’s life would be significantly altered if they never heard from the other players again.

“It’s so true!” Lampman laughed when we pointed it out. “There’s not a ton of loyalty in the room right now, and it’s been basically 8 years since they’ve all been apart, and they’ve learned to live without each other at this point. They don’t don’t rely on each other, and there’s a lot of trust that’s been lost, so it’s true that it’s a bit more like all bets are actually off. It makes everything very unpredictable; you don’t don’t really know where they stand in relation to each other. If their lives were at stake, would they save their own skins, or would they also try to save their friends?”

The title itself, along with its savage premise, makes the film feel strange, almost independent. Of course, the other alternative is that you could take a look at the trailer and think that “Gatlopp” is just a weird word applied to a living board game – like Zathura Where Jumanji.

Jumanji was one of my favorite movies growing up,” Lampman said. “So a drinking game for friends that comes to life and starts to wreak havoc on their night out was really exciting. Unless running animals around the house I think [Jumanji] was a great guide to the absurd situations these characters will find themselves in.”

One of the great challenges of a film like gatlopp is exactly the size and scale an actor can reach before the movie starts to seem unreal. After all, it’s a pretty obviously surreal and silly premise, so where’s the line?

“I really think in a movie like this you have to lean into the absurd,” Lampman said. “It’s what he’s asking for, and I think if you avoid doing it, it won’t pack the punch that Jim and Alberto were looking for. Luckily, this movie has some really amazing core moments as well. We have spent a lot of time trying to make sure the treble was high and absurd and ridiculous and funny and got the laughs and just out of control and we hit all those notes but then when it called the humanity of those characters and the lessons and themes that the film tries to address, that these scenes were incredibly grounded, realistic, authentic, and true to what all of these characters actually go through individually. The sky’s the limit, but you also have to remember where floor. “

gatlopp is now available for purchase on digital platforms.

5th round of 2022 Candidates Tournament ended with Hikaru Nakamura and Ding Liren missing an opportunity to win against Nepomniachtchi and Radjabov respectively.

Photos: Stev Bonhage/FIDE

Round 5 of Candidates began with Manuel Alvarez Escudero making the ceremonial gesture in the Alireza Firouzja match against Jan-Krzysztof Duda. Escudero is now 100 years old and just a few months ago he played (and won) for his team in the Madrid league.

Fabiano Caruana – Richard Rapport

An incredibly sharp game of just 24 shots to Caruana and Rapport. The American GM tried to surprise his opponent with the rare 6.g4 from the Sicilian Taimanov defense that he actually used in the 2021 World Blitz Championship. Rapport threw his next move 6…Ne7, and immediately deviated from this part.

The two GMs decide to end the game with a triple repetition in a position where the two kings are in the center of the board! But the real result came from Dina’s initiative!

Teimour Radjabov – Ding Liren

The Radjabov – Liren match started with the Catalan Close. Ding pushed with black against Radjabov’s slightly overextended position, but had to be very precise in order to exploit his advantage. The Chinese GM failed to do so and the game ended in a draw.

Alireza Firouzja – Jan-Krzysztof Duda

The Firouzja – Duda match started with the Petroff and Duda followed the match he played against Pouya Idani in the FIDE World Cup 2021. After Firouzja missed a few chances to apply more pressure and create winning opportunities, the match ended in a draw after 36 moves.

Hikaru Nakamura – Ian Nepomniachtchi

Another Petroff in the Nakamura – Nepomniachtchi match, with the American GM taking the lead early in the game. Nepomniachtchi’s quick and imprecise play reminded everyone of his matches against Carlsen.

This time however, the Russian managed a huge breakaway to maintain his leading position with 3.5/5. “I think I got everything I wanted. I don’t know what an objective assessment is, but I think if I don’t have the sudden brainslip and play 25.Nd2… if I play 25.Nd4 it’s much better, if not win Nakamura said after the match.

Join our show with GM Daniil Yuffa and WIM Anna-Maja Kazarian, tomorrow at 13:00 UTC.

Round 6 pairings:

Teimour Radjabov – Richard Report
Hikaru Nakamura – Ding Liren
Alireza Firouzja – Fabiano Caruana
Ian Nepomniachtchi – Jan-Krzysztof Duda

ANDERSON, Ind. (WXIN) — A controversial tradition at an Indiana high school basketball game has come to an end after complaints that it mocked Native American culture.

On Tuesday, district council members voted unanimously to scrap Anderson High School’s pregame ritual in which students dress up as Native American chiefs and maidens to perform a pipe ceremony.

The school says it is keeping its mascot, the Indian, however. The Indian team name, school and sports team logos and signage will also remain the same.

According to Tuesday’s meeting, the town of Anderson is named after William Anderson, a former chief of the Delaware (Lenape) tribe.

“From its inception in 1925, the intent behind the Indian symbol at Anderson High School has been to honor Native Americans,” reads the internal review of the ritual and its complaints.

“The Delaware Indian Tribe and most Native American tribal members have made it clear through this process that having students or non-Native individuals dress up in native regalia and perform routines and ceremonies that they view as a sacred component of their culture is in no way to honor them,” said Anderson Community Schools Superintendent Joseph Cronk.

The the pipe ceremony sparked controversy on the national stage when a video of an Anderson High School boys’ basketball game was shared on TikTok in February. It received more than a million views and led to hundreds of people, tribal and non-tribal, reaching out to the school and school board to share “concerns, support and feedback,” according to the internal review. .

“We ask for mercy. We ask for respect,” said a representative of the American Indian Movement, who spoke ahead of the vote. He said the pipe ceremony performed at the Anderson Games was a very sacred ritual in indigenous culture.

“It would be like me going to your house and telling you how to read the Bible,” he told the crowd at the meeting.

According to the school board, an internal task force was formed after the response to the video. Ten ACS representatives met over several weeks to research and document the ways the district represents Anderson’s Native American history. Part of their job was to consult with members of the Delaware Indian tribe and direct descendants of Chief Anderson.

“What does it say about ACS if a culture has told us that something we do is offensive and we keep doing it?” read a slide from the presentation.

ACS says that going forward, it will work in partnership with the Delaware Indian Tribe to ensure the authenticity and relevance of new sporting event routines.

Ormiston Senior College (OSC) students launched their innovative, self-created products on an online marketplace for the community.

As part of the school’s commercial curriculum, students must design, produce and promote an innovative object, as well as create their own business. The process took about 12 weeks to the 50 student groups and has now been released to the public.

The products are available on the OSC’s online marketplace and can be picked up on the university campus on June 22 and 23 or via delivery options organized by each company.

The online marketplace includes student group websites, product information, and photos. The idea of ​​the digital marketplace was born out of the uncertainty of in-person interaction, says one of the CSO’s business professors, Oliver Rose.

“Regardless of the state of the lockdown, people can still access it,” he said.

There is a wide range of products – from board games and accessories to candles, crystals and jewelry. One company, Clay Works, made clay earrings.

Another, Squish n’ Smash, offers personalized homemade stress balls created from double-layered biodegradable balloons and filtered sand. Or there’s Magnifico, a board game that helps “educate young people through entertainment”, which was under the direction of business professor Mark Snow, the creator of his own board game Gumption.

“Overall, they enjoyed the process,” Rose says.

“A lot of bands are really passionate about their products.”

The online market will be open until pick-up days. It will reopen later in the year after students receive feedback “giving them the opportunity to make improvements, as all businesses no doubt do,” Rose says.

“It’s the first time we’ve used the local community page to share all the products with the community,” he says.

“It’s really good to get involved and hopefully get more involved in the future.”
