He lives by himself in Tokyo, because his parents and younger sister died in a traffic accident when he was little. One day, Kiriyama Rei meets three sisters who are his neighbours. The three sisters are Kawamoto Akari, Kawamoto Hinata and Kawamoto Momo. This is his first meeting with someoneoutside of the shogi world in many years. Having meals with the Kawamoto family brings warm feelings to Kiriyama Rei.

First of all its a dreadfully slow tale, and if you have a short attention span like me you might not finish it in one seating, there is not much that is going on other then that its a beautiful movie, coming from the same director as rurouni kenshin, here  he pairs up with Kamiki again. Kamiki is a really really good actor, i have been really impressed with him in the kirishima thing. it just wasnt very memorable that is all, i cant recall most of the plot except the adopted sister's envy, the relationship with the three sisters, and Kamiki being a genius shogi player, what i do remember is it was beautiful while it lasted.

This was unexpectedly good ! I do not like Chess so I thought it will be boring to watch but it turns out really cool  ...
I loved Kamiki Ryunosuke acting and the character he played , I was expecting more scene with the Kawamoto sisters and I was disappointed with ending ! then I found out at the end of the movie that there is a 2nd part which will focus on their relationship .
I think the 2nd part will be interesting and am excited to see Kamiki Ryunosuke character development .
I did not read the manga or watch the anime but this movie was still good .
