The rule against perpetual check was intentional back in 2019. It was meant to compensate for stalemate being a win for the stalemating player. In Chess, if you're in a lost position, then the stalemate rule can save you. The rule against perpetual check had the same purpose. However, I removed it from all of my Shogi variants some time ago, as I believed it would add nothing but confusion as to why someone lost a game.
