Story:

This Special episode is a continuation from the original series and is in the manga so its not separate from the series and if you are a fan of the series its a must! After finishing the original series I was distraught by them not showing anything about the Hokudo Cup. I desperately wanted to know who would be picked and if Shindou was among the three that would be chosen to represent Japan. So, of course, I immediately went to the manga, and, of course, read it to its entirety right to the very end. . .

It has been several months since I completed Hikaru no Go and so while browsing for something to watch I was overjoyed to find this special episode and upon starting said episode was immediately pulled into the story where I stayed happily occupied for the entire 77 minutes! It was a joy to be able to revisit this wonderful anime!

The preliminary matches to decide who would be on team Japan was simply perfect and I LOVED the match between Shindou and Yashiro! It was one of the highlights of the series and honestly one of the best matches in the entire series! Fantastic!

Animation:

The animation style is like that of the animation style at the end of the original series. Very nicely done.

Sound:

The voice acting hasn't changed so i retain my opinion that it was very well done! The soundrack also fit the episode quite admirably.

Characters:

Again, I retain my opinion that the characters were well done and added much to the storyline. I really quite liked Yashiro and, of course, simply love the rivalry between Touya and Shindou! xD

Overall:

This special was a solid 9 in my book! Highly recommended to all fans of Hikaru no Go! I simply couldn't pull myself away!
