Thoughts on the Hikaru no Go Special

I just got done watching the Hikaru no Go 2004 special and dammit now I want more. When the TV show's run finished it felt like it had run its course and it was time for it to be over. I thought the last chunk of episodes were a little bit weak. But the special has given me hope that someday we might get some more. One or two brief comments hidden in the full post so as not to spoil people.

One of the things that blew me away about the special were the matches that Hikaru and Akira had in the middle of the special. I found the whole thing very powerful, especially in reminding us that these two really are just kids and that the older players really are that much better than they are. It really gave me hope of there being more story to be told in a new series. And of course, we still have this tournament coming up that I hope we see someday.
