From inside the board came an old spirit named Sai who once dedicated his life to GO.

[warning! spoilers ahead]

At first it was cool because Sai was there.
But when Sai disappeared.....the whole manga fell apart. I recommend people reading this manga but only up to the part where Sai disappears.

To make a seemingly boring (well, not to me) board game to be very exciting is very hard, I believe, but this manga does it. The art is done very well, and the dynamic movements as the characters place go stones make it seem so cool (xD). It really is an awsome manga.

I love Hikaru no Go! The artwork is great. The storyline is cool, and keeps the story interesting the whole time.

this manga is amazing!!!!one of my favourite mangas of all time!!!!!i've never heard of Go before but this manga has taught me a lot!!;) I really like the artwork and the most impressive part is the great storyline. I enjoyed watching the characters' development especially Hikaru. Yes I agree that he has changed a lot especially after Sai .........:'( I couldn't help by cried several times starting from vol 15 and at the end of the story. I don't really like the ending though. It could have been better given a captivating story from the beginning, however a must read for all manga fans out there!!!!I wish I could read more so I'm gonna go for the anime after this. I hope the anime is not as sad as the manga though. Even now after a week i've finished reading it, I still got those teary eyes whenever i'm thinking about some of the scenes!!;)

Great series. Hated that Viz/Shonen Jump had to edit it so it can have more of an audience. Though the edits were small, they messed with what the author had originally imagined. Every since I found that out I decided to never buy Viz's edited mangas or any edited manga for that matter.
