As I was asked by RAZA in “Profile” page, I replies to it in this article.

The spelling of “Ito sae” is 伊藤沙恵 in Chinese character(i.e. kanji).
As he shows, she passed the entrance examination of “Shoreikai” at the age of eleven. It is the youngest record in women. But I don’t know more about her.
By the way, Kato momoko has the second record. As I wrote before, she won against a female professional player when she was an amateur.
The article named “Two primary school girls bask in limelight of Japan’s shogi world” is quite interesting.
I am really looking forward to their activity as a professional or a female professional player in the future.

About shogi DVD, I don’t know anything else Sam Sloan’s DVD.
