Shogi (Japanese Chess)

Observation: also 99% of the Western Shogi players have no whatsoever issue with kanji

I definitely agree that learning Kanji was barely an issue when I first started out, and in fact quickly became second nature.

That being said, I don't see why it couldn't be an option to use whichever one you want. Similar to how we can customize our chess boards with pieces that look however we want them to, I imagine it'd be pretty simple to allow the shogi pieces to be customized to be Kanji, western-style, or whatever.

Ultimately, I'd just love to see shogi added as a variant, regardless of how they make the pieces look.
