Summary :

A regular school boy, Hikaru Shindo stumbles upon an old GO board while looking through his grandpa's old storage room for something worth money. From inside the board came an old spirit named Sai who once dedicated his life to GO. Together, Sai continues to search for the move people call "The god's hand" while Hikaru slowly began interest in this ancient game and walks down the road of GO.

Hikaru no GO received the Shogakukan Manga Award in 2000 and creators received Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize in 2003 for the series.

Shindou Hikaru is your average 12 year old kid. One day he stumbles upon a blood-stained Go board in his grandfather's attic. A ghost appears and Shindou learns that this ghost is Fujiwara no Sai, a Go instructor from the Heian Period. Sai used to be one of the Emperor's Go instructors, but due to a misunderstanding he was banished from the palace. Not wanting to live anymore since he couldn't play Go, he drowned himself in a lake. However, Sai still wanted to play more Go and reach the 'Divine Move,' so he haunted the Go board for a thousand years. With Sai, Shindou Hikaru learns how to play Go and develops his own love for the game as he tries to beat his own rival Touya Akira.
