I am slain

I saw the first ten episodes of the Hikaru no Go anime. I was immediately hooked. So I went looking for more. Over the last two days I've read the entire run of the manga.

Oh, holy fuck, it's so good. SO GOOD. I read the last 20 chapters or so sitting in a Starbucks, squealing like a little girl and pumping my fist in the air at the good parts. And talking to the characters, talking to them out loud, because I love them so fucking much. I love them all -- Hikaru, Akira, Sai, Kouyo, Ogata, Waya, Isumi, Kaga, Kawai (such a beatnik!) Yan Hai, Suyon, even Yongha -- even though he's a complete and utter dick. Hikaru needs to smack that bitch like a red-headed stepchild, I'm telling you.

I read a lot of fanfic before I got my hands on the manga; now that I know canon, though, I've got some thoughts on the way people are writing the characters. spoilers ahoy... )
