Although this was really only an average installment, I'm being generous and giving volume 19 four stars because it's nice to see the story move forward again.

So apparently Hotta has decided to set up a big international tournament as the storyline that will occupy the rest of the series. Namely, the "Japan-China-Korea Junior Team Tournament," open to pros 18 years old and younger from all three countries. In other words, an excuse to bring back the Chinese and Korean players Hotta introduced in...more

Having enjoyed the excellent Anime series, I decided to start reading the books at the point where the Anime series ended. There is a minor overlap from the Anime's conclusion to the continuation of the Manga series, yet the story flows according to what has been previously introduced. Nothing major in terms of storyline development, however, the accuracy of the games and the Go culture is excellent! Takeshi Obata's artwork fits the series and is excellent throughout.

Hotta's storyline regains its forward momentum as Hikaru and his friends learn of and begin preparing for the Japan-China-Korea Junior Team Tournament. There's a theme of Japanese pride and ability to compete developing that is especially interesting, considering that this was written and published in the middle of Japan's Lost Decade.

Although I don't really care much about the 'Japan-China-Korea Junior Team Tournament', since it just feels like an artificial plot filler, I still find the characters themselves interesting enough to enjoy this volume.

Maybe the story break in volume 18 made this volume even more exciting. Back to ヒカル moving forward, showing his strength, etc. -- good stuff.
