Cast & Credits
I am happy to see Kamiki Ryunosuke character development , his acting was very good~ he did a good job portraying " Kiriyama Rei " .
The story did focus more on his relationship with Kawamoto sisters and how that effect Kiriyama growth as a Shogi player & as a person , I liked these part of the story and the Shogi match was very intense .
The movie is really impressive with the directing , the visual amazing as will was the first part .
What bothered me is that the movie seems more like a miniseries divided into two parts than a movie .... ! and the story focus a bit erratic , I wished that they filmed the last match am not sure if they'll do a third part but I don't think they'll , so the ending kinda an open ending ...
Overall it was a good movie .
