Shogi related media

I, and I would assume many of foreigners, were introduced to shogi via Japanese media. I think it would be interesting to compile a list of anime/manga/LNs that have shogi as a core component of the story. Not only would it be nice to have a list of animes to watch, but it could also be a great way to promote the game abroad. Here are some that I know of:

3-Gatsu no Lion
Ryuuou no Oshigoto
Soredemo Ayumu wa Yosetekuru
81 Diver
Shion no Ou

Feel free to add any I missed!

Ranma 1/2 also has its share of shogi in the background, their fathers are always playing either shogi or go and there is even a chapter about Tendo Ningen Shogi ++ his fiancé is called Akane TENDO... while I did not start playing shogi right away because of that (I was a kid), childhood memories did encourage me to try it when 6 months ago someone told me about an introductory shogi lesson :')

Hunter x hunter ..

While the games played between the Ant King and the girl isn't exactly shogi, it's kinda like it.

Naruto Shippuden..
Well, Shikamaru.

The animes above, I have seen.

But it was a Japanese who taught me shogi, and told me that Hunter hunter's shogi is not the actual 9x9 shogi.
