As e-sports become one of the largest industries worldwide, shogi is no longer just a traditional board game in Japan but a sport for international communication.There are too many Japanese people who can play shogi but chess, but it is hard to communicate with overseas players due to English skill.To provide fresh and practical English contents for study, I believe ISM is a good learning material.In my website, I would like to provide some translation and review from picked-up articles from each ISM issue.I hope the readers get familiar with English and get closer to have communication worldwide!
