Hikaru No Go Volume 5 (2005) by Yumi Hotta

Description: Sai’s games on the Internet have Go players around the world guessing his true identity. among them is Hikaru’s rival, Akira, who suspects that Hikaru is hiding behind the screen name “sai”. So intense is Akira’s interest, in fact, that he skips the first day of his pro exam for a re-match. And on a rainy Sunday, the battle of wills begins anew…

Review: I have to say this installment was the turning point for Hikaru’s character. He finally has a goal and will do just about anything to do it. It was really interesting to see how he turned out. The characters are written so well that I have been so engrossed in this story. I really can’t wait to read more.

Score: 4 out of 5
