  • The characters are coming together.

    Although Akira has only started playing Go recently, his understanding for it has been growing, and this was displayed pretty well when Hikaru placed the stone on the board like an expert. He finds himself in an interesting situation, at a junior high festival. We're introduced to a new character in Kaga who is a victim of Akira and demises the game because his dad pushed him to be the best. Kaga's archetype character of the misunderstood adolescent is presented pretty good, despite revealing just about everything about his character when we just first meet him. It ended on an exciting note when Hikaru gets distracted and places the stone at the wrong spot, leaving him open for an attack.
