    Default Hikaru no Go

    Anybody read this manga? There are     Spoiler:
    volumes in Japan, not to mention 4 in America. I like all the characters and humor in this manga. So, does anybody else like it?

    Oo I thought that that manga was just a little unknown graphic novel. But yes, I know it, and I like it. It was, IIRC, the first manga I actually really liked. Unfortunately, they aren't out where I live so I can't get them. The only way I got the first one is that there was an exposition where thet imported directly mangas from the USA and you could buy whatever you wanted. But 23 you said? Darn, I wish I could get'em. But I can't read japanese, and order all the way from USA will cost quite some money. I guess I'll just have to wait til they come out here.
    But yeah, the manga really has humour in it, and I found myself really disappointed when it ended. One thing I wonder though, is Sai a guy or a girl? I think he's a guy and he most probably is, but you have to admit, he does look kinda feminine to some extend.
    But it's so funny somettimes we see an external view of Hikaru, and he just looks like a schizo, shouting out at thin air XD

    And yes, you didn't miss anything. I didn't write about ____ being awfully attractive.

    I love that manga. The story flows along just fun, the characters wonderful, and it's very funny!

    Me: You just answered my question for me. I've always been interested in weapons from childhood from watching so many Chinese movies. Also, the fact that she does absolutely nothing too important appeals to me. A lot of background characters appeal to me.

    Yeah, Sai is a guy. (He really scared me when I found out he wasn't a woman.)

    Ahh, Hikaru no Go is one of my favorite manga out there. I just love how cute it is XD Sai is one of my favorite characters as well. The manga actually made me interested in Go. o_o

    I really like the plot as well, though it's simple, it's entertaining all the same. I'd like to get more volumes, though. I think I have one through three.

    I used to think Sai was a female, too. But he's just fine as a male... It just was strange to think of him as a guy after thinking he was a girl for so long. Oo

    You people thought sai was a girl? Oo...

    The manga was really entertaining. It's now one of my favorites, even though I haven't bought a volume yet...

    You got inspired to play Go too, Minako? I haven't learned yet, but my parents are calling in all of there friends to teach me. I think their more serious about this than I am.

    Me messing around with the new class, TaeKwon Boy/Girl, of RO on iRO Sakray. It's not THAT pwnage, but it is pretty hardcore for an nearly unequiped level 40(1 DEF store gear). I just liked the flying numbers, so I took a picture.

    Status: Semi-dead. Pretty apathetic to life now, and massive HW is sucking up my time. Hopefully it won't ascend to complete inactivity.
    Update: It did.

    I though Sau was a girl to. Scared the crap out of me when I read the Sai was a boy.

    Manga is indeed great. I want to learn go but haven't found a good way of learning yet.

    Manga is awsome, has a nice story and some interesting conflicts.     Spoiler:

    Anyways, I kinda figured he wasn't a woman when they said "he" and stuff. But I wasn't freaked, just suprised. Imagine if it had been a woman in your mind.

    The manga is interesting. It has interesting characters and funny moments.

    But that's it, nothing much more. I enjoyed reading it the first time but I wouldn't read it the second time.

    I recommend whoever likes this manga to check out Death Note. The manga is drawn by the same artist (excellent artwork guaranteed) and has much more in it, except less humour.

    I love Hikaru No Go! I've read every chapter in Shonen Jump and would love to watch the anime sometime. It's really good and I look forward to it in SJ every month ^_^

    At first I never noticed the "he", but even when I did find out Sai was a guy, and even though I heard his manly Japanese anime voice, every time I read his speech bubbles in the manga, I still imagine him with a woman's voice.

    I've seen the first two seasons (I don't think they'res a third though), so I thought that this manga should be the first one I try... This is my first manga, and I'm enjoying it very much ^^

    Does it go past where the DVD's end by chance?

    NOTE: I put that in spoiler tags for the people who were reading the graphic novels and not Shonen Jump. That scene happens in Volume 5, which will be relesed in a few days (in America, at least).

    The only thing I could clearly say that I bothered by in this book... Is that Hikaru Shindo is so mean to his friend that was with him when     Spoiler:


    He seems to constantly put her down... But... I guess that's just his personality, to put down long time friends... ¬¬

    She takes it well too... I personally wanted her to KO Shindo a few times... =P

    That's what Sai said to Hikaru about Akari in Volume 1. I doubt Hikaru likes her likes her back. Akari isn't really even the kind of girl to punch Hikaru out anyway.

    It would still be funny. But my frineds convinced that theres a Shonen Ai thing between Akira and Hikaru because at one point hikaru goes "Akira, well hes my goal' and hes blushing :P

    It's amazing how many things can be misinterpretted...

    Anyway, this thread hasn't been responded much, so I've got something that might change all that. For those of you who are curious, here are the pictures off all the Hikaru no Go books ever released in Japan. (Actually, that would be the entire series.)

    Be warned though, the covers do contain spoilers, and the higher the volume you look at, the more likely you will see a big spoiler, literally.
