Manga.Tokyo managed to get the plot and screenshots of 3-gatsu no Lion’s first episode which is schedule to start in October 8. The story revolves around the mentally-scarred protagonist, Rei Kiriyama who has lost his entire family in a traffic accident. It depicts his gradual change of heart after meeting the three daughters of the Kawamoto family.
3-gatsu no Lion has a similar atmosphere to that of Your Lie in April, so this is one of the anime we’re paying close attention this season. If the anime catches on, there would be many people starting shogi. Have you ever played shogi?
