Girlish Number’s penultimate offering was perhaps its most satisfying so far. Chitose is the subject of discussion even when away from work; this build-up to her breakdown helps reveal the show’s true nature.
Rei continues to explore the mind of fellow shogi players in this new episode of 3-gatsu no Lion; the experience isn’t quite as heartwarming as the last time, but perhaps more revealing.
