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.

I sent trackbacks to following web sites,

    I had a chance to watch the DVD. If you are unware of shogi at all and would like to learn basic rules and how to move each piece through a motion picture rather than a book, then it might be worth while purchasing. But my recommendation is to buy books such as “SHOGI for Beginners” by John Fairbairn and “The Art of Shogi” by Tony Hosking.

  2. RAZA says:

    Yes, I own both of those books and I also own the DVD. The only thing I ‘learnt” from the DVD was when someone commits “ni fu” you should wait a few moves before telling them. That way they can’t take the move back :)

    Also I was wondering if there are any Japanese DVDs on Shogi?

    Hello, RAZA and takodori,
    About Japanese DVDs on Shogi, I cannot find anything in Amazon.co.jp.
    Well, I think that the most popular media about shogi in the world is comic :-)
    , although it hardly helps one’s improvement.

  5. RAZA says:

    heh. Yes I have some of “Ayumu no Koma”, too bad my Japanese is not good enough to read it all :)

    BTW – Thanks for all the data, that article on the 2 primary school girls was very interesting!
