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!
