posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Muse Asia announced on Thursday that it will begin adding the television anime adaptation of Shiratori Shirow and Shirabi's The Ryuo's Work is Never Done! (Ryūō no Oshigoto!) light novel series on its YouTube channel beginning with the first episode on Saturday, August 15 at 8:00 p.m. GMT +8, with a new episode added daily at 8:00 GMT +8 until August 26.
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. Yaichi has totally forgotten about this promise, but through their interactions, he will soon discover her potential for the game and also reignite his own passion that made him a Shogi master.
Shinsuke Yanagi (Ro-Kyu-Bu! SS, And you thought there is never a girl online?, Momo Kyun Sword) directed the anime at the studio project No.9 (Angel's 3Piece, And you thought there is never a girl online?). Fumihiko Shimo (New Game!, Clannad, Infinite Stratos) was in charge of the series scripts, and Akane Yano (And you thought there is never a girl online?) designed the characters based on Shirabi's original novel illustrations. Kenji Kawai (Ghost in the Shell, Fate/stay night, Maison Ikkoku, Ranma ½) composed the music.
