What other readers are saying about this title:
A fun anime (cartoon) series to watch. The plot line is basically the young boy Hikaru releases the spirit of a dead Go master (Sai) trapped in a Go board and eventually turns into a professional Go player (or you might not have have noticed there are at least 11 DVDs in this series).
Parts of what make this interesting is it isn’t a good vs. evil plot. Just about every major character in this has good sides and bad, even our protagonist. Second, it’s fun to get glimpses of Japanese culture. On one of the later DVDs you’ll find that real men eat noodles!
By the way, you’ll notice that as of posting this (09/09) that the DVDs only go up to volume 11 (and no MN libraries carry the gaps in the HCL system collection). This represents about only half of the episodes actually shown in Japan so you’ll have to revert to reading the book versions or other means if you want to complete the series.
Although some people prefer watching the episodes with the original sound running and reading the subtitles, I think the subtitles in the DVD versions aren’t very good and watched them dubbed.
