hikaru no go

Random Hikago Event

Announcing the Random Hikago Event (to hopefully breathe some tiny bit of life to a pretty much dead fandom), between 8th and 14th of August, 2016. Or somewhere around that time. Entries can be whatever. We’re not picky. Just, you know. Hikaru no Go stuff, that would be nice.

Here’s some prompts to use, if you feel like it. It’s really not required.

1. Nigiri (procedure common in Japan at the beginning of an even game to decide who will play the black stones.)

2. Fuseki (arraying stones. this normally occurs in the first moves of a game so fuseki is often used as a synonym for opening.)

3. Honte (the proper move; a solid play that leaves few or no weaknesses behind and has a followup.)

4. Miai (denotes that there are two different options such that, if one player takes one, the other player can take the other.)

5. Seki (mutual life. in its simple form, it is a sort of symbiosis where two live groups share liberties which neither of them can fill without dying.

6. Atari (the state of a stone or group of stones that has only one liberty.)

7. Yose (moves that approach fairly stable territory, typically enlarging one’s own territory while reducing the opponent’s. because the typical yose occurs in the endgame, it is at times used as a synonym for endgame.)

Idea was to do a thing per day or something like that but seriously, Hikaru no Go is pretty much a dead fandom, I’m pretty sure we’d all be happy with like random scribbles and doodles too. Make origami, write some meta analysis, make a Sai-plushie, do whatever, post your masterpiece and tag it #random hikago event, and you’re in.

The first thing on my mind is…..“ah…. Hikaru finally is taller than Akira” //sob //I’m so glad

At first glance I’m not really used to Touya with long hair but come to think…. if He wear an ancient clothes and filet his hair as Sai, it must be perfect ! ~
For Hikaru, with his highlight, if he also wear Japanese ancient costume….. he must be totally cool too ~ <3

EDIT: I forgot to add a short translation after cleaning

Obatasensei is kindly help to draw Hikaru and Akira in 10 years later

Sports Anime

Yeah, I see you with your Baseballs, Volleyballs, Swimmings…

You know where the good stuff’s at, though?

Hikaru no Go.

Eternal.  Rivals.

Best Sports Anime ever.

It’s a million episodes of Pageboy and Two-Tone obsessing over one another’s board-game playing abilities. Obsessing.  They are obsessed with one another.  I’m pretty sure one of them is a sociopath.  But still.

Go ahead.  You watch it.  I’ll wait.



(HAPPY BIRTHDAY izumisays!!! )
