comes on like

March Comes in Like a Lion

is an ongoing manga series by Chika Umino, best known for Honey and Clover. It began serialization in Hakusensha's seinen manga magazine Young Animal from its fourteenth issue in 2007 (published on July 13, 2007). A television commercial announcing the series was also aired by Hakusensha on numerous Japanese television stations, which was also posted on its official website.


The series is set in Tokyo, following the everyday life of a 17-year old shōgi player, Rei (also known as Zero). While describing the series, Umino noted that she based the setting of March Comes in Like a Lion on research she conducted herself, whereas in her earlier and most famous work, Honey and Clover, she had already been familiar with its setting.


The protagonist is Rei, a 17-year old professional shōgi player. He lives by himself, not having a family, and does not go to school and has scarcely any friends. Among his acquaintances is a family, which consists of a young woman, Akari, and two young girls, Momo and Hinata, and who also keep a numerous number of cats.


The series has been serialized by Hakusensha in Young Animal since 2007 issue 14. It has been collected in one bound volume as of February 2008.
