When Will Ayumu Make His Move manga

The anime series is based on the manga of the same name written and illustrated by Soichiro Yamamoto. The manga has been under serialization in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen magazine since March 2019.

Kodansha USA licensed the series for English publication in North America. It describes the story of the series as:

Yaotome’s the president of the shogi club at her high school, and she’s pretty sure that Ayumu, an underclassman and the only other member of the club, has a huge crush on her. They get together to play shogi every day after school, but no matter what she does, she can’t seem to get him to confess his feelings! What she doesn’t know is that Ayumu has made a pact with himself to reveal his love only after he’s beaten Yaotome at shogi for the first time. Yet there’s one big issue with this plan…he really sucks!
