  • Episode Description
  • Kishimoto (Kaio's first board) played a match with Hikaru to find out his real strength and expressed his puzzlement as to why Akira sees Hikaru as an opponent when he's not as strong. Through Kishimoto, Hikaru realizes the widening gap between Akira and him self and that it would be impossible to catch up with Akira with Hikaru's current pace. All fired up, Hikaru decides to start off with enrolling in the Insei program with becoming a Pro and defeating Akira as his goal. However, he failed to realize that Inseis can't participate in Amateur tournaments. Thus, he's being forced to make a choice between being an Insei and quitting Haze Jr's Go Club.moreless

    • Kishimoto: Quite a gap between you and Touya… No, I’m not talking about your strength. I’m talking about your attitude towards reaching your goal. You don’t know what Touya was like in the Kaiou Go Club, do you? Touya really chased after you full strength, not caring about the people around him.

    • Hikaru: What do you want to know? Kishimoto: Your real strength.

    • Hikaru: I wonder what it is… he said there was something he wanted to know…and he takes me all this way. Is it about Touya and me? But why at a Go Salon? Oh shoot! I forgot to buy the English Reference book.
