“Yes, this is Jinnai.”
“Thanks for your hard work; this is Kenzaki from Phoenix Bunko. Thank you for the plot of your new work, Jin-sensei. I have finished reading it.”
“Kenzaki-san, thanks for your work. You’re so quick at it, as always. So, how was it?”
“I’ll be going straight to the point—it’s rejected. All of it. I think it’s better for you to create a new one from scratch instead of trying to fix it here and there.”
“…That’s really straight to the point.”

While the first two volumes of popular light novel series Ryuuou no Oshigoto! (The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done!) was mostly an introduction to Yaichi’s two disciples, the third volume went on to establish the development for one of the characters that is mainly overlooked before. Being a volume that heavily brings up the theme of talent and hard work, it still remains one of my favorite parts of the series.
Anyway, you can join the Discord server here to talk about the series. And as usual, spoiler warning.

“Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn’t.”
I have been seeing a lot of responses to Ryuuou no Oshigoto! (The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done) right after the anime started airing. Among them, one that I frequently encounter is “how unrealistic the plot of the story is”. On one side, we have a 9-year old girl who has only played shogi for three months; on another, we have… a 16-year old boy who is both a professional shogi player and a title holder. Some remarked how the child prodigy trope is utilized too excessively, which ruined the so-called realism of the show.
But, is it really unrealistic? Or, if I were to pose another question, to what extent would a real-life achievement in shogi be considered “realistic”?
In this post, I won’t be talking about Hifumi Kato, a former Meijin who is the professional shogi player with the longest career. Nor will I be talking about Yoshiharu Habu, who is the only person ever to be qualified for seven professional lifetime titles in shogi. This time, it’s about Sota Fujii, the youngest professional shogi player who recorded a winning streak of 29 matches at his young age of 14.
