Hikaru no Go


Shindou Hikaru, an elementary school student with a penchant for trouble, is rummaging around in his grandfather


To me, Hikaru no Go is proof that anime can make anything interesting if done well. This title flies in the face of the glut of children

Remove one star if you are not a fan of board games like chess or igo, but give it a try anyway.Jason Bustard

Recommended Audience: No violence, no foul language, and generally nothing to be offended by, period, unless for some strange reason you find Igo offensive.
