This week I discovered March Comes in Like a Lion, an anime based on a manga by the same creator as one of my favorite series growing up, Honey and Clover. It's technically about shogi (a Japanese board game similar to chess) but is mostly about Feelings. I would describe it as one big hurt/comfort fic balancing heavy emotions with really silly, charming humor and endearing characters, very good medicine for quarantine times. The production quality is top notch, with gorgeous backgrounds and delightful use of simplification and limited color palettes for its more gag-oriented moments. Also, Rei is extreme gender goals and I am dead-set on copying his exact button down + cardigan look. A++ Would recommend! Let me know if you've seen it!
