It's a brand new JUMP START! And one that will finally shed some light on a subject I've been curious about for years—shogi. I've seen it played or referenced in many manga, but I really don't know much about it, beyond it being like a Japanese version of chess. That's the wonder of manga! You can learn so much about a subject while being entertained. Although I've only read the first chapter, I've already learned a lot.

Shinobu has a problem—he's not really good at anything. Even when he tries! But when he accidentally winds up in a house of shogi players, everything changes. I must say I can really relate to this character. I definitely was not the star student. It wasn't until I found theater that everything began to click. Unfortunately, we didn't have a shogi club at our school. Anyway, hope you enjoy the new JUMP START!

Nisekoi is famous for its battle of the hearts, but this time it's a battle of the bodyguards! Chitoge's bodyguard Tsugumi versus Marika's bodyguard Honda! An assassin versus a ninja! It's almost sounds like I'm describing a Naruto chapter, but I'm not! In all honesty, Komi Sensei has a knack for drawing fights. The battle in this chapter has some downright inspired action panels. Hopefully more girls will fight as the series goes on. Like, lots more.
