3 gatsu no lion (March comes in like a lion), is an absolutely captivating show about a boy named Rei who is a highschooler and professional shoji player and his interactions with various people including three sisters who help him out and act almost like family to him.
The anime is slow paced but every episode makes you feel alive. Rei’s history is slowly revealed through flashbacks and every episode it is easy to find yourself hoping and praying for his happiness. The Shogi games are captivating but the show is not focused on how to play Shogi like many sports anime. It is so hard to explain just how much this show captivated me. The characters evolve and have weird but heartwarming smiles and you can feel Rei’s pain, sadness, and happiness as it comes to him.

If this sounds like something you might want to watch I would encourage you to give it the two episode test and try it out.
