Tobby: The Loser at Chess


Phew…anyway, Jin (Shizen no Teki-P) just uploaded a new Kagerou Project music video today, and boy, it was the creepiest one I’ve seen among all the other Kagerou Project music videos that I have seen. Kuroha hurting Mary is just…no…no…just no…So much darkness…

Anyway, since I’ll have to wait for my questions to be answered, let me talk about chess. Boy, what a shift in topic, huh? I go screaming like a fanboy over a development in the Kagerou Project, and then I talk about chess. Wow, Tobby, just…wow. It kinda feels awkward when I do that in a face-to-face conversation.

Now, before I trail off somewhere else again, I shall now talk about chess.

And I am a loser at it. I have never ever had a real win at chess. I have only experienced losses. But I don’t think it’s so bad. This chess trainer once told me and a bunch of other people that even great chess players have experienced both wins and losses. What’s important is that we do our best to improve.

Well, I’ve only experienced losses in chess, but now, I feel like I’m improving. I’m starting to think more carefully when planning chess moves. Still, I guess I have a long way to go.

Now, chess…It’s a sport where you have to use your imagination. Why? It’s because you need to anticipate moves. You need to look at the possibilities while playing. What could be the best move? How can I outsmart my opponent? Where in the world is my missing pawn piece!?

Ahh…I remember last year…That time when I played chess like a guy who thought he could play chess well while blindfolded. Well, I wasn’t literally wearing a blindfold, you know. Anyway, back then, I was easily outsmarted by guys who were younger than me. It gave me some embarrassment, but now, I don’t think I should be embarrassed when I lose in a game of chess. I mean, every game is a learning experience, you know.

So, to all you losers at chess like I am right now, don’t feel bad for yourselves. Just do your best to improve. If you want to better at chess, then just keep on playing the best that you can!

Feel free to say something!
