About: The tribulations of teenage life and the struggles therein are brought to the fore in stunning fashion with this beautiful adaptation of the award-winning manga from Chica Umino (Honey and Clover), produced by SHAFT.

Rei Kiriyama is a 17-year-old prodigy in the world of shōgi (Japanese chess), his young age marking him out as an exciting talent in a hierarchy mostly dominated by much older men. While those around him are impressed by his relative success at such a tender age, for Rei the expectations placed upon him feel like a millstone around his neck as he struggles to make sense of his place in the world and the person he wants to be, while simultaneously battling with the pressures of the world of professional shōgi.

Rei’s journey of friendship, rivalry and self-discovery brings with it a gamut of emotions, and a poignant look at life that will resonate with viewers from every walk of life.

March Comes in Like a Lion – Season 1 Part 1 will be available on Standard Edition Blu-Ray from 17th April 2023. In the meantime the Collector’s Editions of Season 1 Part 1 and Season 1 Part 2 are available in the UK.
