I honestly was waiting for this adaptation for quite awhile since I've been reading the manga scanlations as they come out. But I have to be honest that I haven't watched the anime yet. You can check out the scanlations of the manga by Be With You Scans and Hi wa Mata Noboru. Be sure to support the anime too by watching it at Crunchyroll, Aniplex of America, or Anime Limited. The second season of the anime will air soon too, which would probably will catch up to what happened in this film.
What can I say about the film besides that it's an Ohtomo Keishi film (He's the director of the very cool Rurouni Kenshin live action trilogy)? Well, most of the characters are so spot on from the original manga. Like really. Also, the feels of the manga is still there (but not that heavy compared to the manga). Overall, it's a very good adaptation of the first 6(?) volumes of the manga series.
Not to mention, the movie have a star studded cast too. So don't worry if you're just watching not knowing the manga and just want to flail with your favorite actors and actresses. Sometani Shota, especially, was so cool acting as Nikaido.
Kindly take note that this is a beta version softsub & made for people who can't wait. It is not translation checked, edited nor quality checked other than me, Ais, the translator. There might be errors in translations, grammar, among others. As indicated in the subs themselves, if you found error(s), please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) the time stamp(s) of the line(s), and how to improve that line(s) so that we can correct them. Also, researching about shogi took a lot of time in translating this film. Please email us if you found errors in them. There will be a final corrected version in due time and will be released and announced at our site - http://tl-skeweds.blogspot.com/
Please support the film if its digital media is available in your area.
PS: Look forward too for San Gatsu no Lion Kouhen / March's Lion Concluding Part / March Comes out Like a Lamb hopefully by us too when the digital media is out :D I'll try to make time to work on that ^o^
