  • Quotes (5)

    • Hikaru: Let me try the hardest one so I can get the ‘Tsumego’ book. Kimihiro Tsutsui: The hardest one? Alright then. If you answer this one, you’re the same level as Touya Akira.

    • Akari: I dropped by your house a little while ago. Where did you go for so long? Hikaru: Playing Go.

    • Hikaru: Sai...You didn't... just...Take over... my body?

    • Kaga: Who cares about Touya Akira? Who cares about some kid that lost to me?

    • Hikaru (to Kaga): You probably just ran away to Shougi because you couldn’t handle Go.

    Notes (4)

    • Kaga bet Hikaru that whoever lost would have to swim in a pool of Ice Water.

    • Off-screen moment: In reference to Kaga smoking in the manga, when the issue of the American Shonen Jump came out, Kaga still held a cigarette. However, when the graphic novel came, they changed it to Kaga chewing gum in order to make it have an "All Ages" rating. In addition republished versions of the SJ issue were made to have Kaga chewing gum too. Sadly, only Japanese manga readers and people who have the early versions of that one issue will know the truth of Kaga smoking.

    • Shougi is the Japanese version of chess, which varies from Chess in a number of ways.

    • Tetsuo Kaga and Kimihiro Tsutsui are introduced in this episode.
