After finding similarities between her shogi-themed manga Sangatsu no Lion/March Comes in like a Lion and British author J. K. Rowling’s internationally popular children fantasy novel series Harry Potter, Chika Umino posted a parody art featuring her manga characters inspired by the poster of the first live-action film Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone on her official Twitter account.
“‘March Comes in like a Lion’ tells a story about a boy without a single relative who uses his only ability (talent in shogi) to encounter various people, help each other, and find his place and happiness in life step by step. If such comparison is possible, it reminds me of Harry Po… Oh? Who is knocking on the door at this time of day… (· ω ·)?”
