When Will Ayumu Make His Move? tells the story of high school student Ayumu and shogi club president Yaotome.
Yaotome is convinced Ayumu is in love with her, but is frustrated as hell because he won’t tell her. Little does she know, Ayumu has already decided he won’t tell Yaotome how he feels, no matter how much she tries to get him to, until he can beat her at shogi.
The problem is, even though the pair play shogi together every day, it looks like Ayumu will never win as he really is terrible at the game.
Poor Yaotome. Is she destined to be single for the rest of her high school career?
Watch the just released second trailer for When Will Ayumu Make His Move? below. Now doesn’t that look like a whole lot of fun?
