  • Quotes (6)

    • Akira: Those words you just said are an insult to pros everywhere! You can’t possibly be a Go player; someone who plays Go can’t possibly say something that insulting!

    • Hikaru: Huh? Oh, so you are aiming to become a pro…how much money does a pro at Go make? Akira: If you enter a title match… then the Meijin matches is $360,000… and the Kisei match is $420,000. Hikaru: Wait… How many titles matches are there?! How much can you get if you win all of them?! Akira: 8 titles in all… the total prize value is around $1.8 million. Hikaru: A…A million?!

    • Akira: Do you plan on becoming a pro? Hikaru: Pro? Me? Pro? I’ve never even thought about anything like that. Touya do you intend on becoming a pro? Akira: I will.

    • Hikaru: Haven’t you ever been serious before? Akira: Huh? Serious. May I see your hands? Hikaru: My hands? Akira: His nails aren’t worn down…this can’t be a hand that’s in contact with Go stones very often… Hikaru: What was that about?! Akira: Oh sorry.

    • Hikaru: There were kids younger than me…and they were all so serious about the game. It kinda touched me. Akira: Touched you?

    Notes (2)

    • Akira examines Hikaru's hand to see if he has the hand of a go player.

    • A tutoring game is a game where an experienced player leads a less experienced player in the right direction and, in the case with Sai and Akira, tests the other player’s strength.
