The Ryuo's Work is Never Done! Novels Get PS4 Game

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Shogi light novel series inspired TV anime in January 2018

Light novel author Shirow Shiratori revealed on Monday that his The Ryuo's Work Is Never Done! light novel series is inspiring a PlayStation 4 game.

Kadokawa's BookWalker Global is releasing the novels digitally, and it describes the story:

The Ryuo's Work Is Never Done! is about a teenage boy named Yaichi Kuzuryuu who happens to be the strongest shogi player in history, holding the top title of “Ryūō” (Dragon King). One fateful day, shogi-loving elementary student, Ai Hinatsuru, appears before him claiming that he promised to be her master. But was such a promise really ever made? Thus began their master and disciple relationship!

Who can match their level of intensity and passion for shogi?

Shiratori began releasing the novels under SB Creative's GA Bunko label in 2015. Shirabi illustrates the novels. SB Creative published the novels' 11th volume on August 9. BookWalker Global published the ninth volume digitally in English on September 10.

The novels inspired a television anime adaptation in January 2018. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. Kazuki and Kogetaokoge also launched a manga adaptation in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine in October 2015, and ended on August 2. Square Enix published the manga's 10th and final volume on August 9.
