I'm watching Hikaru no Go for the second time. I forgot how much I enjoyed it! The humor, the way the characters change (even physically) gradually over the show, the way I become wrapped in the game - every thing about the show engages me. I even began to play go online for a while, but had to stop since I didn't have the time.
Hikaru no Go was the first time I watched a good anime about a game, but not the last. I just finished Shion no Ou, a murder mystery surrounding a girl who plays shogi. Shogi plays a large role in the anime, making me wish I had time to try it. Shion no Ou is a great deal darker than Hikaru no Go, but it does have a little humor as well.
