Story
A shogi game may appear restrained but quite a lot of calories are burned from the long hours spent thinking while remaining seated. Toge Nayuta is the first professional female shogi player in the history of the game, and has been studying under her father Hajime since elementary school. Because each game can take more than 10 hours, she seriously worries about what meals and snacks she is allowed to eat during breaks. Nayuta aims to gain the upper edge from the food she chooses near the Shogi Hall in Sendagaya. She has her sights set on defeating male rivals including Hozan Takayoshi and Kurose Tokihiko who are her peers, and getting to the top of the world of professional shogi. One day, Nayuta has to play a game with Hozan. She is trying to decide whether to have katsudon or tendon for lunch when he orders both katsudon and tendon! Nayuta does not want to have a similar menu to him and is completely at a lost. She orders curry don from Hosojimaya on impulse. Will she be able to win with this meal?
