Hikaru Shindou had just settled into the life of being a professional Go player when he received news of the North Star Cup – a special team competition between the young pros of Japan, China, and Korea. With his rival Akira Touya having already been guaranteed one of the three Japanese spots, Hikaru must battle his way through a qualifying tournament to become one of the other two representatives.

With both familiar faces and new rivals standing in his way, this may be Hikaru's toughest test yet!
