  • The top 16 in the A league all take part in the Young Lions Tournament. If Hikaru can manage to get past the first round, he'll finally get to face Akira again. Meanwhile, Isumi faces an old rival, and everyone wants Isumi to put him in his place. As Sai and Ogata monitor Hikaru's game, they become shocked when Hikaru turns a bad move into a good move. However, when the round ends, only 3 Insei will have made it to the next round.moreless

    • Ochi: Doesn’t matter to me. Hikaru: And? When is the Wakajishisen? Touya will be there, right? Zelda: Is Touya Akira the only thing in your head? Isumi: It takes more than a day. It’s a tournament between 16 Insei and 16 new pros.

    • Zelda: I resign. Sai: You won… Hikaru: I won… three straight games… Just when I thought “I’m gonna have all wins from now on!” I started getting straight losses, and I started to doubt whether I was getting stronger at all.

    • Hikaru: The stones flow easily. The teacher complimented me on my three board match, so maybe I’m better at fast go. I won by a half a moku! Yes two straight wins! Fuku: I lost! Hikaru: Oh, sorry.
