  • Another solid installment.

    This episode focuses on Touya instead of Hikaru, and like I've said in previous episode reviews, I'm just amazed at how well the power balance struggle is being played out. With Touya deciding to join the Go club at his school for the sole purpose of playing against Hikaru again, it causes some jealousy within the club. Players who normally attend tournaments are going to miss out because of Touya, and some of the seniors are plotting something in order to overthrow Touya. It's pretty cool seeing how Touya's simple presence can cause so much power struggle within Kaiou's go club.
