  • Solid, very solid.

    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.
