16-year-old Yaichi Kuzuryu is the strongest Shogi player in history, who holds the top title of “Ryuo” (Dragon King). One fateful day, the Shogi-loving elementary school student Ai Hinatsuru suddenly appears before him, claiming that he once promised to be her master.

KARAKAI JOZU NO TAKAGI-SAN


Middle-school student Nishikata suffers constant humiliation at the hands of Takagi, his classmate who sits next to him and who loves teasing him. He vows to do the same to her but always fails miserably in the face of her witty antics.

As they continue to joke around every day in class, will Nishikata ever succeed in getting back at Takagi? And amidst all this “fun”, could there be something more than friendship blossoming?

16-year-old Yushi Inaba has lived with his uncle ever since his parents passed away, but he is determined to live independently in a dormitory once he enters high school. However, his plans are dashed when the dormitory he has set his eyes on burns down, and he eventually settles for an apartment with deceptively cheap rent. He only finds out the reason for the low rent after he moves in – the apartment is home to supernatural creatures such as ghosts, demons and other mythical beings!
