  • Quotes (5)

    • Akira (surprisingly called Hikaru) : Shindou! Hikaru: Touya? Akira: I found you. I finally found you. Shindou Hikaru!

    • Sai (referring to the television Hikaru’s watching) : Hikaru, what is this? A man is playing Go inside a box…

    • Sai: In the Shyusaku era, there was no such rule. Hikaru: When you played as black didn’t you think you had an advantage? Sai: I never lost when my stone was black.

    • Akari (referring to Hikaru’s teacher teaching) : Hikaru, do you understand what he’s saying? Hikaru (answered to Akari) : Not at all.

    • Hikaru’s Teacher: Oh, Shindou-kun. You’ve been phasing out a lot, but your social studies grades have been very good. Have you hired a tutor or something? Hikaru (referring to Sai): Well, something like that… but he’s a little annoying sometimes.
