Pretty good, but not spectacular
Art is pretty good, story is okay; it's pretty good, but nothing spectacular either. A must read for shogi fans, however. The ending kinda sucked for me, though. Predictable, didn't feel right to me. Other than that, a pretty good read.
I like it so far, but pearlesque...its not about Go, its about Shogi. Its a TOTALLY different game. Its like comparing Risk to Chess.
This is going to be made into an anime! I'm really excited because from what I've read so far, it is very interesting even though Shougi is harder for me to comprehend then Go.
This is actually a more mature and intense take on the world of competitive Go than what you can see in staple series like Hikaru no Go. What makes the story more mature is the fact that the main character -- a girl, for a change -- has a dark past, and although she continues to be traumatized by it, it doesn't stop her from competing. I found Shion to be an intriguing and unique heroine. She's very young, but her analytical mind is that of a prodigy's, and it's wonderful to see her pit her strategies against other gifted players.
This manga is a must for any Go fan, or even just any fan of atypical heroines.
This manga is wonderful, I simply jump on the next scanlated chapter and wait for it inbetween. The art is good and the tension is kept up just as well, if not better than in Hikaru no Go. The game rules are more complex though so one doesn't pick them up as one goes along, will take a couple more volumes until I get the hang of it properly.
Not bad. Not good.
I love Shion's personality. The art and story are both very impressive. While I don't understand the Shougi at all, this manga still sucks me in
nice story nice (vol1), nice art
Liked this manga alot too bad the scanlations are sooooo slow. A lot better then hikaru no go except i dont understand the game at all
