I love Hikaru no Go!!! I'm so happy because the first DVD is coming out today (12- 27) in America!!!! Us Hikago fans have been waiting for this for a long time...

It's based on Volume 4, but I'm putting up a fanfic that I wrote. Look for it in the fanfic section on this forum!

It came out yesterday? I'm going to buy it then! Anyways, who's your favorite character? Mine is Hikaru. Who's yours?

Sachiko
29th December 2005, 1:50 PM
My favorite character? That's a tough one I really can't decide. Probably Hikaru. He's so funny!! I did take a quiz (http://selectsmart.com/FREE/select.php?client=HikaGo) and I got 1st place Sai and 2nd Akira.

I'm so sad!!!! Does ANYONE know where to get the Hikago DVDs?!?!?! Someone suggested SunCoast Motion Picture Company store, but does anyone know another place????? I want the DVD so so much!!! *cries*

Well, I like it. I've only read the first Volume, though.
I might have two and three, I'm not really sure.

In any case how long is the manga.
I'm pretty sure it goes into the twenties, and the characters actually age throughout it.

Nintendo Master
30th December 2005, 7:40 PM
I think it's 24 volumes if I could remember the site that I saw with all the Hikaru no Go manga.

Sachiko
3rd January 2006, 12:02 AM
All right then!!! Suncoast it is!!!!

There are 23 volumes.

Hey, did anybody take that quiz???

Nintendo Master
3rd January 2006, 12:12 AM
I took the quiz! I got Hikaru for #1 and Akira for #2.

I have the first 4, I keep putting off geting 5, but, realy, I'm where ever we are in SJ. I love this series, the art is good, and nothing bad happens... Realy bad anywway.

My favorite is Yuki. He's just cool, and you cant deny that

Tokagero
8th January 2006, 3:51 AM
I love the artwork for Hikaru no Go! I keep up with the manga in Shonen Jump and I saw the first episode of the anime (I thought Hikaru sounded too old and Sai's voice wasn't feminine enough...). Anyway, I'll just say that I love this series! :) Oh, and I took that quiz. My #1 was Akira and my #2 was Sai. (I love Sai! He's so pretty! ^ ^ )

Wandering Rhythmical Phoenix
8th January 2006, 5:14 PM
I just took the quiz #1 Sai, #2 Hikaru, not who I would think

Nintendo Master
8th January 2006, 5:31 PM
Yes Sai is but did you think that he was a girl in the manga? I certainly did until Hikaru mentioned that Sai was a he.

Sachiko
8th January 2006, 11:53 PM
YES I did!!! I was scarred, man...
And then I was reading chapter 2 and when I saw Akira I was like, 'Oh, that's nice, there's a girl in this story.' But I saw that "she" was a boy and I just began to cry. (NO, not really.)
Sai looks like he wears lipstick.
And what's up, Tokagero!!! That quote reminded me of Naruto's "He's prettier than Sakura!!!" (talkin' about Haku.)
Haku of the Shell Bullet, yep, Yuki definitely has that cool "couldn't care less" thing goin' on. I love it.

I thought I'd get Hikaru for the quiz, but he was 5th... Yuki was seventh...

Sai DOES wear lipstick. In the DVD, he wears purple lipstick. It's scary though, why would a male wear lipstick?

Because Sai has feelings for Hikaru, who is a guy. In retrospect, Akira has feelings for Sai, through Hikaru. Hikaru has feelings for Akira. What shape does that make? Probably like a box or a pentagram. I didn't even make mention of Akari. >_> Hikaru no Go is an excellent manga, and the dub had better not be horrible, a recent preview has made me assume not to hope for the best. Just wait until Tetsuo puts out his gum on a Go Board. ~_~;;

And Sai isnt gay, He had a Harem of his own (VOL1 or 2 shows him srounded by chicks)

I thought that was hilarious!!! Sai was a chick magnet!!!

Hikago might not be violent, but when you really get in the story, it's dramatic. It's a break from violent manga. If nothing else, read it for the great artwork!!!!

And yes Anna, O_o is right.

Just wondering, Sachi are you a akihika fan? Just asking because you found the akihika santa pic.

21st January 2006, 2:50 PM
I got the DVD yesterday. I'm glad I got it and all, but it's been almost a month later! :p So many people would've gotten it by now. You know, it's just like playing bingo in a classroom. You hope to be one of the first people to get bingo, but other people keep getting it first. And then, by the time you do get bingo, it won't even make much of a difference because the entire class already had a bingo!

Anyway, the DVD was good. It included the Go Go Igo thing that appeared at the end of each Japanese episode. The Japanese theme song and ending theme song were kept the way they were, even in the dub. I personally prefer the Japanese voices over the English ones, but that's just me. (I especially like Hikaru's original voice.) And Dub Sai really does sound like Lan! :o

Uhh, Dub Sai's voice actor is the voice actor for Lan.

I know, and therefore, he does sound like Lan. Sai sounds like Lan more than I originally thought. He especially sounded like Lan when he was saying that at last he could play Go again from the first episode.

23rd January 2006, 3:29 PM
MJC CARTOGUY!!!!! I TOLD you to put in your post, "My sister is not a homosexual"!!!! (KIDDING, just KIDDING) So I had to spend three days thinking 'Anna thinks I am an AkiHika fan. My reputation is tarnished.' (kidding.) I really hate that pairing and all other yaoi and yuri. 'Tis quite disturbing. But I do like the picture because it's random and funny. It is not necessarily AkiHika. The url of the image might just say that as a short way of saying who the characters are.
However, I don't mind them as the friends- who- aren't that are really rivals but deep down inside they care about each other (minds out of the gutter.) and they only act like they hate each other (coughcoughnarutoandsasukecoughcough).

In other news, yes, we finally got the DVD!!!! Yay!! Me thinks all the English voices are a little off, except for Ms. Ichikawa's!!! But Akira- kun and Hikaru- kun's Jap voices, since they are done by women, are a bit off, too, When Hikaru- kun screamed outside of the Go class, it sounded like a cute little kid!! ^^ the Jap voices are so cute!!!

There's a new girl in my Sunday School class at church. She's from Korea, so I gave this a shot:
"Uh, have you ever heard of this board game... it's called Go?"
"Um... no...?"
Real smooth, Sachi. |= ( *pats self on back* *falls over*

Me too!!! On fanfiction.net, there are a ton!! They are very annoying. Ugh.

Guess what!!! I got volume six!!!! At long last!!! But I've read it already... it was great!! But four months 'till the next one is way too long.

I totally agree with all you said. I wish I could draw hair like from Hikaru no Go. I'm surprised it's in American Shounen Jump, but I'm not complaining about it. Hey, if any of you don't know how to but want to play go, go to www.playgo.to (http://www.playgo.to/).

Sachiko
14th February 2006, 10:29 PM
It's coming on March 28th.

I loved the Akira vs. Oza match. It was awesome!!! AKIRA!!! YOU SHOULD'VE WON, YOU IDIOT!!! YOU ARE SO PATHETIC!!! AND TO THINK THAT I CLAIMED YOU AS MY BISHIE!!! *kicks Akira*
Akira: OW!!!

Sachi: Oh well.

Zama- sensei: I'll murder ya, Sachi!!!

Sachi: BRING IT ON, BAKA!! I AIN'T SCARED OF YOU!!!


What in the world is so interesting about Yugen no Ma???

The play was not as good as I thought it would be.

My fave chapter was An Old Haunt. That pic of Akari was overdramatic, though. I feel so sorry for Yuki!!

It even snowed in Hikaru no Go before it FINALLY snowed where I lived. I was quite upset.

Yay! I just claimed Hikaru x Akari in the Couple Claiming Thread!! Celebrate!!!

Hikaru: *serenades Akari* Sugarpie, Honeybunch...
Akari: o_O

Ciao, and Happy Valentine's!!!

It isn't??! :snowlax:

I'm visiting family in Wilmington (NC) right now and I was all set to buy the DVD and there were no Suncoasts around! AAAAAAAH!!!! *cries*

You know what I love about Hikaru no Go? Well, I was thinking, what makes Hikaru no Go so good??? Me and others have thought it was boring but then got into it. It has good drama in it, but what about the drama was so cool?? Finally I realized it- the characters are so vivid!!! They are so believable (except for Sai- sama.) and real. They really play out all the drama well. And they look vividly real, too. It's great. If anyone out there wants to make a manga, like I do, vivid characters are important, so remember that.

You know what I hate about Hikaru no Go? The long wait for each volume!! This time it's five months!!! Are they trying to kill me because it's working. I don't like reading it in Jump because it's only two chapters and then you wait a whole month. Plus it's harder to keep up with and there aren't those extra things between the chapters and such. This is driving me insane!!! Almost as insane as not being allowed to read Black Cat because I'm only 15(and I just recently turned 15!!!!) Oops, wrong manga again. The point is, GAH!!!!

That's all Sachiko has to say for now. Good night.

Nintendo Master
23rd April 2006, 4:44 AM
If you thought I was gone, I'm back! D: Why is Hikaru no Go so underrated? *bump* I'm the only one in the entire class that actually reads it. And Sachi, I agree with everything you said about it. Waiting 5 months is long, with a huge cliffhanger if you only read the graphic novels!

Edit: I just found out that number 7 is coming out July 5th!

GoggleHead
23rd April 2006, 6:00 AM
I personally always thought Hikaru No Go was kinda stupid. Do they really explain how to play, or do they just skip the game stuff?

Nintendo Master
23rd April 2006, 6:08 AM
In the anime, before the preview, they teach you one lesson on how to play Go.

Sachiko
24th April 2006, 2:58 AM
Yay! Anna's back!! Anyway, Go Go Igo is cool, and also, you don't have to know how to play Go in order to enjoy the series (mainly for it's drama^^). Hey, I used to think HnG was boring, but then I really got into it and now I love it!!!

This Easter, I colored eggs (with PAAS!!!) and for some reason decided to name all the solid colored ones after Hikaru no Go Characters. The coloring kit came with stickers, so I gave each character a sticker. It's mostly random. Here we go:

Pink-Akari-"Happy Easter" with bunny
Orange-Sai-duck with basket with easter eggs
blue-Kimihiro-easter egg
Denim- Hikaru-egg with dumb smile (which reminded me of him...)
Spring Green- Yuki-bunny painting giant egg
Purple-Akira-butterfly
Yellow-Waya-same as Sai
Teal-Isumi-eggs and flowers

And I was just at the grocery store and was looking at the magazines and my bro happened to come across something in the Archie's library (those little cartoon books, ya know?) and it had this new girl on the cover and her hair was like Hikaru's!! We both though it was Hikaru at first glance!!! Check it out.


Umm... nothing else I can think of to say right now. Buenos Noches (Spanish for good night.) !!


Only 72 days until the next DVD!! To make the DVD last longer, I won't watch Game 8 'till May....

For the first question, it's worth reading. Sure, there's no action but who cares? The drama makes it a good manga. For the second one, Barnes and Noble's, Suncoast *turns sad*, anime stores...

Edit: I no longer claim Hikaru Shindo from the Bishie thread, so if you really wanted him, you could go claim him now!

I will probably not do it for a while because I am still working on Yuletide Yu- Gi- Oh, and I can't even work on that because of homework *looks at Anna's profile picture and solemnly nods*!!! But it'll be funny!! And have more suspense and plot development and well, length.

I'm quite fond of the series, yes, though I wish they'd show more from the actual game rather than what happened in the end and everything, plus it's mostly talk... but I looove the artwork; not in the beginning, but it developed well pretty damn fast. This, along with Death Note(also drawn by the same artist, hence the superb artwork there), are probably the only ones in my book that aren't... yanno, action-y. But I swear, Sai's appearance and behavior is are the splitting image of my little sister, except he's a foot and a half taller. 0_o I wish it wasn't on the Shounen Jump magazine and an independant release by itself ala Bleach, RK, etc, because Viz is just taking waaay too long. I have all the ones they released so far, but I just really fed up with the pace, so I am downloading the episodes.

Awesome!!! Another fan!!! Welcome to the er, discussion.


Bump. VOLUME 7 CAME OUT YESTERDAY!!!! Who's gonna buy it? I'm buying it on Sunday.


Ha ha. BEAT YOUUUU!!! I already bought it! ^_^

And now, the review: (spoilers, duh)

Page

12, 13-
Hikaru: I don't want to study with Akira Toya! I want to play against him!!
... No way am I going to sit around with him and study go!!

XD Omg. That would be HILARIOUS!!!! XD

29- LOVE THIS PAGE!!!!! KYAAAAAAAA!!!!!! CHIBI GOODNESS!!!! Also love 117.

51- At the Meijin study group:
"And what if Shusaku knew modern Joseki? He'd be the greatest. Even Toya Meijin wouldn't stand a-" *suddenly remembers Akira is sitting right there and stops*
Akira: *snickers*

^__^

57-
Hikaru (to Sai): I can't help it! You're scary!!

Agreed. But we love him anyway. =)

Then-
Sai: Then it is obvious what you must do! Think clearly! Step forth and push the boundaries of your game! Just as Akira does! You must be like Akira!!

I don't know about you, but if I was Hikaru and someone just told me to be more like Akira, I would have totally snapped and killed the person who said that.
Unless it was Sai. He's already dead.

After that-
Ogata Sensei: Akira may turn pro next month, but he still looks like a cute middle school kid.

XD Ogata sensei thinks Akira is cute!!

Then-
Ogata (to Akira-kun) : I saw Shindo the other day. He said he'd be playing in the Young Lion's Tournament. Shindo? Sounds like fun, don't you think?
Akira: Not really.

...Funny.

115-
I LOVE this rude quote by Akira (about Hikaru):
'Don't think were equals... just because our names are side by side.'

Does Akira even realize how rude he is sometimes?? ^____^

Like here:

113-
Ogata Sensei (to Akira): After Shindo left the tournament that day... your father said if he were good enough, sooner or later he'd show up as a pro.

And on 146. That was SO funny. Did he bump into Hikaru????

Akira: He said that...?
He's overrating Shindo!!!

Yeesh, I'm tired of these direct quotes. Other comments:

-yay, Hikaru is reunited with the great Shirakawa sensei.

-this is sad: Kaga and Kimihiro graduate!! Aww...

-Hikaru is so stupid. Waya almost found out that he was sai.

-SO HAPPY!!! Yuki came back to the club. It was so sweet how they made the notebook for him. ^^ And I am loving Kaneko more and more. She's kinda cool. Actually, she was cool ever since she slapped Hikaru. ^_^

-Again, I'm very happy!! Isumi beat Mashiba. Way to go, Isu. (I shorten names a lot.)

-That thing about Ochi at the restaurant was creepy. I read that and I was like, 'O-kay.'

-I'm glad that Akira actually paid attention to Hikaru at the Young Lion's Tournament. Finally. His ignoring Hikaru completely and not caring about Hikaru's playing Go was getting boring.

-I can't wait for Hikaru to meet "Godzilla", as Shonen Jump calls him. But the next volume is coming out in NOVEMBER.... ugh....

-The storyboard where Sai was mistaken for a woman, I just thought, 'Ouch!' That was so sad and funny!! ^^

~And now, last but not least, a little thing my brother and I like to call... "Waya Does"!!!~
~(because it's like, "did you see what Waya does at the Young Lion's Tournament?!" Long story.)~
~Okay, let's get on with it.~

At the YLT, Mashiba keeps rubbing in the fact that he's a pro and Waya and Isu are not. Waya is really bothered by this, and he finally snaps. He sort of attacks Mashiba and knocks him over. In front of everybody. He even gets in trouble.

WHAT WERE YOU THINKING, WAYA?!!!
YOU'RE SO COOL, WAYA!!!

My thoughts went between these two things.

That's the most violent part of Hikaru no Go yet!!!

Also, did you notice, the people at Akira's table were like, "What's going on?" and they ran over there. But Akira didn't even look up. That's really weird. How the heck do you not even LOOK?!?!? Like I said, weird.



Okay now, everyone, DISCUSS VOLUME SEVEN!!! I have officially started the discussion. Yay.


And one final IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT:

Toonami Jetstream is starting on July 17th, and Hikaru no GO will be on it!! So everybody better be there, okay?!!!!

Thanks, Toonami!!!

:( I didn't buy volume 7... My mom and dad went somewhere... I'll wait until Toonami jetstream is at episode 5. Why does it take so long for the next volume to come out?

Hikaru no Go is an excellent series, but around the middle to the end seems somewhat rushed and rather annoying, but other than, I simply loved it.

Have you guys not finished the series yet?? Its been over for about 2 years already...

Yeah... I just buy the English graphic novels and DVDs. That's all I do.

Why
