Hikaru no Go

While rummaging through his grandfather's possessions, Hikaru Shindo stumbles upon an old bloodstained Go board. Much to his surprise, he also finds that the board is inhabited by the spirit of Fujowara no Sai, a Go instructor to the Emperor during the Heian period... and he's going to reside in Hikaru's body! Urged on by Sai, Hikaru begins to play - albeit with no intention of playing seriously; though as Sai teaches his host about Go, he awakens both Hikaru's interest in the game as well as an innate hidden talent for it. Before long he finds himself paving his own path in the world of Go. Although Hikaru is naturally skilled, does he have what it takes to defeat his rival, Akira, without Sai's help? And will he ever be able to achieve the ultimate move known as the ‘Hand of God'?

Hikaru no go was exciting to read!!! I wont lie on that ...

Very exciting and enjoyable to read. The art is very well done too! BUT I HATE THE ENDING!!! Seriously I hate the ending like what happens to Sai!!! I get the whole point towards the end... read more
