Hikaru no Go

Aug 23, 2011

When I first heard of this anime, I was skeptical of how a boring game of “Go” could have created 75 episodes. Shortly after 4 episodes, I was addicted to seeing how the protagonist would grow in his conquest to become a professional “Go” player. The story was well executed each showing crucial lessons learned and hardship that goes into the life dedicated "Go" players must overcome. The emotional roller coasters that the characters go through in order to move up to the professional world of “Go” is heart wrenching and captivating. Not only is the story well-formed but the music that covers the many situations of non-dialogue grabs you into their games of “Go”. I high recommend watching this series if you enjoy anime with raw emotion and a beautiful soundtrack.
