I will report the trend of Shogi society on September 2006.
1. Professional shogi society
Habu defended Oui and Oza, although the challenger SATO yasumitsu has won remarkably for latest two years. Habu has made two big records.
One is to have titles continuously and he has Oza for 15 seasons continuously. It is the top record.
Another is the total numbers what one has got titles and he has got 65 titles already. It is the second record, but he may renew the top record of OYAMA.

3. Amateur shogi Society
I haven’t found a good topic to write in September.
4. my activity
I joined the activity of “shogi” in Wikipedia and updated the information of “Professional players” section. It was first time to use Wikipedia, so I made a mistake. But others corrected immediately and kindly.
5.One of Good sites
I think the “External links” section of “Shogi – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia” is a good link summary.
See you next report!
I sent trcakback to following blogs because I’d love to read them.
Thank you, their authors.
