    • Hikaru: It’s like I’m a God…I’m going to become a God! On this Go Board!

    • Hikaru: Sai! Why didn’t you say anything?! You could’ve told me about the clock. Sai: Things like that didn’t exist in Shuusaku’s Age.

    • Kaga (after Hikaru makes another bad move): Hey you! Are you trying at all?! Hikaru: Yup. I’m trying. Kaga: This isn’t your real strength! Or are you just playing around? Hikaru: I am playing. Kaga: What?! Hikaru: Because... Look... There are nine stones on the Go Board. This is the universe! And I’m placing stones one by one on that. Like I’m increasing the number of stars one by one… I’m making the universe. It’s like I’m a God. I’m going to become a God! On this Go Board.
