    Hikaru unexpectedly encounters Akira. They chat for a little while which angers Akira because Hikaru takes Go so lightly. This portion of the episode was pretty dramatic because although Go seems like such a simple game, even more simple then chess, we see that people, such as Akira, take the game so seriously. In that situation we see that Hikaru, while having the support of an expert, still have a minimal understanding for the game. We also get a gauge of how Sai approaches the board game because of how he defeated Akira once again in a humiliating manner. No mercy.moreless

    • Akira: Those words you just said are an insult to pros everywhere! You can't possibly be a Go player; someone who plays Go can't possibly say something that insulting!

    • Hikaru: Huh? Oh, so you are aiming to become a pro…how much money does a pro at Go make? Akira: If you enter a title match… then the Meijin matches is $360,000… and the Kisei match is $420,000.
      Hikaru: Wait… How many titles matches are there?! How much can you get if you win all of them?!
      Akira: 8 titles in all… the total prize value is around $1.8 million.
      Hikaru: A…A million?!

    • Akira: Do you plan on becoming a pro?
      Hikaru: Pro? Me? Pro? I've never even thought about anything like that. Touya do you intend on becoming a pro?
      Akira: I will.

    • Hikaru: Haven't you ever been serious before?
      Akira: Huh? Serious. May I see your hands?
      Hikaru: My hands?
      Akira: His nails aren't worn down…this can't be a hand that's in contact with Go stones very often…
      Hikaru: What was that about?!
      Akira: Oh sorry.

    • Hikaru: There were kids younger than me…and they were all so serious about the game. It kinda touched me.
      Akira: Touched you?

    • Hikaru: Touya… Hey Touya… What's going on?
      Akira: Umm…
      Hikaru: You didn't go to the Go Tournament?
      Akira: What about you?
      Hikaru: Me… All I did was take a quick look at it. But… It was the first time that I've seen something like that.
