    An odd episode; in just an instant, Hikaru finds himself on the same team as Shogi and Tsutsui in a Go tournament, despite not going to that school. What was really interesting was how Hikaru was watching that one game, and he completely memorized exactly every single move that was made in that game. It shows that even without Sai's help, Hikaru has great potential in Go. Despite this, only a few minutes later, he plays a terrible game and justifies it by saying he's creating a universe. What I like about this anime so far is that it isn't some fantasy storybook tale...yet. Hikaru is still capable of losing, and he's perfectly human. It's been very down to earth so far.
