So, this volume didn't jump the shark, but I am definitely seeing signs of wear in the series.

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

Yumi Hotta, Hikaru no Go, vol. 14: Sai vs. Toya Koyo (ViZ, 1998)

Probably the highlight/climax of the series as the 'ultimate' showdown occurs between Sai and Toya Meijin.

The match we have all awaited continues ... Sai vs. Touya Meijin! Also some surprises in the Go world.

Somehow, the English editions of some of these didn't make their way onto goodreads.
