How on earth could anyone make a 75 episode anime about a school kid playing a 3000 year old board game? Surely there must be a lot of filler episodes. Those were my initial thoughts but Hikaru No Go had a great rating on Animenfo and I decided to start watching it.

The first thing to do is to collect the entire series of 75 episodes, the special and the Journey to Hokuta Cup before you start. One of the most amazing things about Hikaru No Go is it's ability to capture the viewer from the get go, once you start watching, it's like you don't read more

Hikaru no Go is, in essence, an anime about the world of Go; about the game, the friendships and rivalries that arise in this world, the challenges, obstacles and feelings. This is a lot to actually live up to, and Hikaru no Go most certainly fills its role well.

It starts out very simle, in a way you've probably seen before. The main character, Shindou Hikaru, encounters a paranormal apparition by coincidence while stumbling around in his shed, and only he can see it. Said apparition is, in fact, the ghost of a skilled Go player from the past, Fujiwara no Sai. He really wants to read more

Recommendations

Both series centre around a protagonist who becomes aware of and learns to love a classic Japanese game that's faded to 'niche interest' status, aspiring to become the very best and accumulating similarly-minded friends along the way. Although Chihayafuru lacks the mild supernatural element found in Hikaru no Go, Chihaya's motivation of improving to Arata's level of skill function similiarly to Hikaru playing go at Sai's urging and wanting to catch up with Touya.
Roughly the same theme. Where Hikaru no Go is about go and, after awhile, the professional world of go, Shion no Ou is about shogi and the pro world of shogi. They also have very young protagonists, though Hikaru is just starting out, while Shion is already an accomplished player when the series starts, so Shion no Ou has less of an underdog theme.

Opening Theme

#1: "Get Over" by dream (eps 1-30)
#2: "I'll Be the One" by HAL (eps 31-60)
#3: "Fantasy" by Nana Katase (eps 61-75)

Ending Theme

#1: "Bokura no Bouken" by Kids Alive (eps 1-12)
#2: "Hitomi no Chikara" by Mizuki Arisa (eps 13-30)
#3: "Sincerely ~ever dream~" by dream (eps 31-46)
#4: "Days" by shela (eps 47-63)
#5: "Music is My Thing" by Dream (eps 64-74)
#6: "Get Over ~Special Mix~" by dream (ep 75)
