Show Summary

Hikaru Shindo is just a normal twelve year old Japanese boy. But, one day, as he's going through his grandfather's old things to see what he can sell, he comes across an old Go board. A ghost type figure comes out of the board and tells Hikaru his sad story. His name is Fujiwara no Sai (or Sai of the Fujiwara), a man who was the Go Instructor, a thousand years ago, to the Emperor of Japan. However, Sai was falsely accused of cheating, and was exiled from the city. With no reason to live, Sai committed suicide by drowning himself. Now, he haunts a Go board and wants to achieve the perfect Go game, a move called the "Hand of God." He hopes to do this through Hikaru. Thus this story of growth, learning, and excitement begins... General Note on Airdates: Hikaru no Go does not air on general cable TV, thus all the airdates are that of its Japanese airing. Hikaru no Go does, however, air on Toonami Jetstream, an online anime streaming site brought to you by Viz and Cartoon Network. Regardless, Toonami Jetsream is an online broadband service and not cable TV. In addition, CN has stated that it most likely will never air on Toonami. General Note on Titles: To go along with the Japanese airdates Hikaru No Go will retain it’s original Japanese titles. The English title for an episode will be present in the notes for that specific episode. If no mention is made within the notes, then the title is the same!. The only exception is if the dub has yet to reach that particular episode.moreless
