Yamamoto started the serialization of Even So, Ayumu Approaches in Weekly Shonen Magazine in March 2019.
The story covers the daily lives of Ayumu Tananka, a first-year high school student, and Urushi Yaotome, a second-year student. They both are members of shogi club. Ayumu is in love with his senpai Urushi and he vows to confess her after he manages to defeat her in a Shogi game. But, Ayumu is still a beginner and Urushi always defeats him in the game. Hence starts the daily lives of Ayumu and his senpai Urushi as he tries to confess her in any way possible.
The plot of the manga is very similar to Takagi San. Only the roles are reversed. Manga series such as these have so striking storyline, but, this simple “Slice of Life” approach is what makes them heartwarming to watch.
