Fujii Souta will be promoted to 5 dan

Fujii Souta made an incredible results last year and he still gets many attention from the media. There is still two games left but it seems that Fujii will promote from the C2 class to the C1 thanks to his 8 wins and 0 losses.

Thanks to this he will promoted to 5th dan. He will be the first midschooler that got the 5 dan certification in the history of shogi.

In 2 weeks he will have to play with Habu on the Asahi cup. After Fujii won to Satou Meijin in an official tournament and showed he is able to beat title holders I am pretty sure that they both will give their best.
