Finished the series - here's my review for anyone interested. Short synopsis - I'm impressed.

Interesting review. I'm glad to see that you enjoyed it. Totally agreed that HnG has probably some of the best cliffhangers ever.

Unfortuantely I think you will soon run out of good classic series you haven't seen.

You know, I'm not even close. My bucket list is still as long as my arm.

Any Tar Heels out there?

Quote:
The American Go Association announced on Monday that the Hikaru no Go manga creator Yumi Hotta will attend the 2012 US Go Congress. The go board game tournament event will take place in Black Mountain, North Carolina on August 4-12.

Hotta will sign autographs, meet fans, and answer their questions on Sunday, August 5. She will also judge a Hikaru no Go trivia contest on Monday, August 6. The author learned about the international popularity of her manga when she visited the European Go Congress two years ago.

Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine serialized the original Hikaru no Go manga with Hotta's story and Takeshi Obata's art from December 1998 to July 2003. The series won at the Shogakukan Manga Awards in 2000 and received the Shinsei Prize in the 7th Annual Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize awards in 2003. Viz Media published all 23 compiled book volumes in North America. The television anime adaptation first aired in Japan from 2001 to 2003, and Viz also released the series on DVD in North America.

Just saw this being necro-ed. I think I've rewatched this 4 or 5 times over the last decade. (and I did learn Go because of this )

Not sure whether you know this, but there are a few final chapters adapted in the new year special which takes place after episode 75 (and I like that particular match because it used a rare opening move on the Tengen ). And if my memory serves me right, there's are also a few more final final chapters in the manga not adapted.

Yeah, I've read them thanks. Still not the ending I'd have wanted, but more complete than the anime one.

Wee, watching the HD version from the BD box sets now, or should I say 'rewatching'. Quality looks good,; they kept the 4:3 aspect ratio though, just saying.

Were you expecting they could magically create a widescreen format when it did not exist before? At best they could do some nonlinear stretching where the degree of stretching increases the further you move left or right away from the center of the image. My Sony TV has that feature. It looks okay when you have all the important content in the center of the screen and just background on the left and right sides, like a TV newscaster sitting at a desk.

I'm much happier when distributors retain the original aspect ratio and let me decide whether to stretch it.

Like i said, i was "just saying". I wasn't expecting anything of that sort. It was just a random comment.


Which reminds me as i watched, while romance is not the focus, i wish Hikaru had hooked up with Akari at some point in the series. It would have made the series slightly more gratifying to me.

I think it is the series intention to hint to the viewer that to become the top Go player in the world, you need to sacrifice lots of things, friendship, love...etc. Heck Touya Meijin had a young wife. Meijin is in his 50s-60s while his wife is only 30s-40s. I bet Meijin focus on Go for a long long time, and when he got rich someone introduce him his current wife.

Hikaru also dropped out of school, which is almost unheard of in anime.

And let's be honest, if there was ever a shounen pairing the fujoshi were probably right about...
