Where To Find It
Call number: Teen Graphic Novel / Hikaru
Reads manga style, back to front.
"This graphic novel contains material that was originally published in English from Shonen jump #13 to #16"--P [ii].
Descent of the Go Master -- From a level beyond -- Matters of life and death -- Inexcusable -- Akira bares his fangs -- Decisive blow -- Three problems of life and death.
Hiraku Shindo is like any sixth-grader in Japan: a pretty normal school boy with a two-tone head of hair and a penchant for antics. One day, he finds an old bloodstained Go board in his grandfather's attic-- and that's when things get really interesting. Trapped inside the Go board is Fujiwara-no-Sai, the ghost of an ancient Go master who taught the strategically complex board game to the Emperor of Japan many centuries ago.
I do not like sports manga. I do not like strategy games. When I read these, I had never even heard of Go. And yet I fell head over heels in love with the story. Hikaru no Go is just pure brilliant storytelling.
