  • Episode Description
  • Hikaru is slowly, but surely, getting better as evidenced when he beats Mitani in a game though with a handicap as well as Tsutsui. To play go with Sai, now that they decided not to play internet go anymore, Hikaru tries to get his gramps to buy him a go board/stones. When Hikaru beats a strong opponent at the go school, even to the atonement of the teacher, he finally understands that one can only judge how strong others are when he's strong himself. He bumps into Kaio's first board when he's browsing a bookstore and the latter pulls him away to a match.moreless

    • Yuuki Mitani: He’s gotten strong over summer break. Kimihiro Tsutsui: Okay, let’s play a game.

    • Kimihiro Tsutsui: The Go club’s going great. It’s too bad I have to study for High school entrance exams.

    • Hikaru: Just a girl? Akari: What do you mean by “Just a girl.” Hikaru: Well, if it was a guy, we’d be able to go to the tournaments even after Tsutsui-san graduates.

    • Kimihiro Tsutsui: Hey everyone! Ms.Tamako bought two sets of Go boards and stones for us using the club budget. Hikaru: Go board and Go stones!? Yuuki Mitani: Hey you!

    • Hikaru: Mitani, if you’re giving up you should say “I resign.” Yuuki Mitani: Why you! Don’t get cocky; I’m still better than you are. Hikaru: That doesn’t matter, even with a handicap, a win is a win.
