The story just abruptly ends when Hikaru is playing go with the evil looking guy!!!

oh well, guess I'll just have to find some other mangas...with good ending. But this manga is still one of the best!

[edit by mod,possible spoiler]
This manga got my attention when people fuss over it too much. I read all the way trough volume 3 until I lost the site to read it ^o^;; The first half really is interesting, until it became more and more boring as it focused on Hikaru too much. I know that because Hikaru is the main character and that is why he is the main center. But i gets pretty annoying watching everybody gets surprised and all when seeing how Hikaru is so incredible at Go. I heard the ending is not satisfying from some of the members and friends, didn't go all the way to the end yet but even if it's bad, i still want to check it out biggrin

[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!!;)
