Episode Description (Viz)

It's time for the Young Lions Tournament, where 16 newly crowned pros take on the Top 16 Insei in the A-league. While his other fellow Insei keep falling to the pros, Isumi takes on obnoxiously boastful Mashiba, a former Insei who never ceases to brag about his life as a pro. Will Isumi knock off him off his pedestal or continue to fall victim to his endless taunts?
