Hikaru Shindo is like any sixth-grader in Japan: a pretty normal school boy with a two-tone head of hair and a penchant for antics. One day, he finds an old bloodstained GO board in his grandfather's attic-and that's when things get really interesting. Trapped inside the GO board is Fujiwara-no-Sai, the ghost of an ancient GO master who taught the strategically complex boa ...more

Still enjoying this series, as Hikaru Shindo, the young protagonist, continues to move upwards in the go world. I realize that on one level, this series isn't a lot different than Pokemon or Yu-Gi-Oh or any of those other silly children's series about a boy prodigy on his quest to the BEST EVAH!!! But the fact that this is actually based on a real game with real institutions and the events are (barely) plausible are what makes it compelling. That, plus the go, which I swear, makes me want to dig ...more

Yumi Hotta, Hikaru no Go: The Young Lions Tournament (ViZ, 1998)

Hikaru hears about the Young Lions Tournament, and sets his sights on it, despite needing to be ranked sixteenth in A league, when it's only three months off and he's still eighteenth in B league. With some counseling from Sai, Hikaru starts working on improving his focus. What really impresses me about this series is that while it's structured the same way as most manga—fight, increase power, fight, increase power, repeat ad nausea

The pacing in this series as it goes along can get a little frustrating, despite the fact that my appreciation of Hikaru and Akira and a handful of other characters increases each volume. I have trouble remembering character's names in anime and manga and it's been exacerbated by the somewhat regular introduction of new characters that disappear from one book to the next. I'm pleased to see that the relationship between Hikaru and Fujiwara has evolved from the last two books.

若獅子戦への道!そして、碁部の話は幸せな結末です ^^ 塔矢、ヒカルが来るよ!~

Anime-manga match-up:
ep 25-26 (double ep) = vol 7 up to pg 108 (第52~56.5局)
ep 27 = vol 6 pgs 161-177 & vol 7 pgs 118-139 (第51局 (minus first few pages) & 第57局)
ep 28 = vol 7 pgs 142-182 (第58~59局)
1st half of ep 29 = vol 7 pgs 188-205 (第60局)
This set of episodes didn't exactly follow the manga and even went back to volume 6 for a bit.

This story is comfort food for me. I can't quite put my finger on what keeps me rereading/rewatching this and the anime, but my interest in Go certainly helps. I also like that it's a generally positive story about getting good at something.

I suspect one of the things I like most about this series is the little author's drawings and descriptions about her need for naps.

The story is continuing as solid as the earlier volumes. I really like this series and would recommend it to almost anyone.
