It's my memories
I watched this show since I was a kid. If your looking for a game anime, this is my number one.
One Of My All Time Faves
Hikaru no Go has absolutely everything. The characters are memorable, the dialogue is amazing, and the intense, emotional plot will be sure to keep you hooked for the entire series. I loved all the characters and their many plights left a deep impression on me. It's very refreshing to encounter a shonen anime that has no sword fighting or gore or over-the-top action sequences. If anything, this anime is calm and carefree in comparison. Yet, I love it all the same. The dub voices are enjoyable, particularly those of Sai and Akira. I love al the bright colors that went into the animation sequences. I also enjoy their portrayal of the game of Go. They teach you just enough to get by instead of dumping an entire textboook-worth of information on you. I highly recommend this to anyone who has the time on their hands. The manga is also quite excellent.
Epic stories of climb the ladder
The character buliding are amazing detailed. You can feel attached to them just as you would Naruto and Bleach. Its about the rivalry. Starting from scratch top Meji titles earning a living from playing Go as a professional $10,000 or more. As his skills develop overtime draws us in.
