    • QUOTES (5)

      • Akari: Do you always get nervous on the day before a match?
        Hikaru: Why do you ask?
        Akari: Well... you had a such a stern face, Hikaru...
        Hikaru: A match against Touya is special.

      • Hikaru: The reason Touya's still in the first preliminaries this year is because you beat him last year, Kurata-san. He's moved on in the preliminaries for every other title, I can't reach him.
        Kurata (laughing at Hikaru in reaction to what it said earlier) : Well he is Touya Akira!
        Hikaru: And since he's so busy, our match still hasn't been scheduled. Well, bye.

      • Hikaru: Kurata-san! What am I doing? Master Morishita's study session is today.
        Kurata: I looked at the tournament pairings for the first preliminaries for the Meijin match. You're playing Touya Akira in the first round!
        Hikaru: Yeah, it's all thanks to you Kurata-san!

      • Hikaru (thinking about Akira): The Sai that you wanted to play is gone, but…Sai is in my Go, so… I don't know if you'll notice him but… I'll get to be as strong as you are and play you from now on. Is that enough for you?

      • Hikaru: You've changed, too.
        Akari: Really? How? How did I change?
        Hikaru: Hmmm… You've gotten smaller.
        Akari (angry): You got taller!
