Sore Demo Ayumu wa Yosetekuru from Manga creator Sōichirō Yamamoto is coming to TV in 2022
On his Twitter account on Friday, Manga’s creator Sōichirō Yamamoto announced that his Sore Demo Ayumu wa Yosetekuru (Even So, Ayumu Approaches) manga is getting a TV anime adaptation. Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine’s official YouTube channel started broadcasting a manga promotional video announcing that the anime would debut in 2022.
Details of the crew, cast, and animation studio are unclear, but the commercial anime announcement features the voices of Yoshimasa Hosoya (Attack on Reiner Braun’s Titan series) and Konomi Kohara (Kaguya-sama: Love is Chika Fujiwara’s War series) as main characters Ayumu Tanaka and Urushi Yaotome, respectively.
MAL Rewrite describes the manga as:
On a whim, first-year Ayumu Tanaka quits the Kendo Club to join the illegitimate Shogi Club. Urushi Yaotome, the president of the club and a master of shogi, is thrilled to finally have a playing partner. As Ayumu’s upperclassman, Urushi endeavors to be his shogi mentor and student role model. Too often, however, she finds herself blushing with embarrassment! Stone-faced and honest, Ayumu sees no issue with calling Urushi “cute.” Although Ayumu likes her, he refrains from confessing and promises himself to first beat her in a game of shogi.
Through school life and shogi games, the two students have many hilarious and heart-warming adventures. Ayumu enjoys every second with Urushi, but he is still a long way from beating her in shogi. With the commitment he made to himself, will Ayumu ever get the chance to confess his feelings to Urushi?
