#4 Hikaru no Go: First Battle

Hikaru no Go: First Battle, Vol. 2 (Hikaru no Go, #2)Hikaru no Go: First Battle, Vol. 2 by Yumi Hotta

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

In this second book of the series the story starts to hint at the possibility of getting interesting. Hikaru maybe starts to show some promise of becoming good at go. Anyway, I did learn something about go. There's this idea of mirror play. If the first player plays a stone on the center of the board, then he can just mirror the plays of the other player. Thus, it seems that he can always stay even with the other player, even if the other player is much stronger. The mirror idea sounds good, but this book shows one way to defeat mirror play. I won't go into it here.
