One fateful day, the Shogi-loving elementary school student Ai Hinatsuru suddenly appears before him, claiming that he once promised to be her master. Yaichi has totally forgotten about this promise, but through their interactions, he will soon discover her potential for the game and also reignite his own passion that made him a Shogi master.

He vows to do the same to her but always fails miserably in the face of her witty antics. As they continue to joke around every day in class, will Nishikata ever succeed in getting back at Takagi? And amidst all this “fun”, could there be something more than friendship blossoming?
