  • This book is excellent

    2014/09/01 Poster:Wang Qi Wen Recommend rate:★★★★★

    Various types of mino castles are frequently used in furibisha (ranging rock) strategies.

    Learn how to storm various types of mino castles is very important to deal with furibisha players. The translation is excellent and the book is well organized.

    I typically like the arrow head representation, which is used to indicate the storm direction.

    Please translate and publish more shogi books into English. I will definitely support! :-)
