Hey--I'm curious. Is it any good? And what type you'd classify it by?

I think that Hikaru no Go would be best described as a sports anime. Despite its rather esoteric subject matter, it may well be one of the most accessible sports anime around.

I think that it's an excellent show that has quite a lot of appeal to different demographics. To date, just about everyone that's given it a chance has given Hikaru no Go a pretty good review.

I began to watch Hikaru no Go for one reason and that was the name.
I thought it sounded kind of cool.
but when I started watching I was hooked. the story, the characters and the tension of the story is great, and it remains as of today still in my top 20 list.

The origin is sports-based, trying to reach the peak in the game, and having some kind of rivalry. But, unlike many other similar shows, it is highly character driven. Even the not very much used characters can make you ask for more from the parts that include those characters, they are not your typical throw-the-basket-and-forget kind of characters. The strong characters are presented in the most desirable way, even if you do not see a lot, you can still be satisfied with their strength. And, it involves lots of emotional scenes...In short, it is a show that grows in you...

Lastly, because of integrating many elements successfully into the show, and using them at good levels make that show one of the must-watch shows...

Hello all,

Just wanted to confirm that the anime doesn't go into the International matches that everyone was referring to in previous posts?

Thanks in advance.

there is a special episode (or movie) about its prelims but tournament itself was not animated. on the other hand if you have not started this series dont watch it. although it's my favorite i believe ending sucks.

thats bullshit, and you know it.

The TV series itself has a very nice ending (especially if you dont know the manga), and the ova isnt bad either.

agreed
even though it ends with the 2004 new years special that shows the matches to qualify for the international turnament and no further this episode gives a good ending I think.
and even though it gives a fair ending it still makes it clear that they can easy continue the Anime with another OVA or something if they wish for it.

Sure I would love for them to make Anime of the turnament.
but I love this Anime just the way it is too.
anyways this is a must-watch anime.

I felt a bit gypped that we didn't get to see the tournament; I would have preferred that over some of the filler episodes near the end. Still I think the only reason I would complain about the ending is that it ended. I just want(ed) to see more Hikaru no Go.

Oh ok - thanks for the info, I've watched the series and (I believe 3?) special episodes. I've watched the episode to determine the 3 members to represent Japan - from the postings, I had thought that the Japan vs Korea match was also animated!

Once again, thanks.

IIRC the manga was already long done by the time the anime got anywhere near the end of it's TV series run. In fact, I'd have to go relook at everything to check, but the end set of episodes pretty much follows exactly how the manga went, possibly a bit condensed, but overall the same.

I totally agree with you.
Hikaru no Go is fatefull to the manga and to me one of the best Anime's ever made.
it really makes you want more of it and I think that with the 76'st episode 2004 new years special it makes for a decent edning of the show too.
even though I would have love to see the japan-China-Korea u18 tournament
but still I love HnG
