This chapter takes place in January of 1999.

Material from this chapter was adapted into the anime episode Game 4.


Hikaru plays a stone by holding it properly for the first time, alarming himself. He runs screaming from the Touya go salon, interrupting the game Sai was playing against Touya Meijin.

Hikaru is worried that Sai is taking over his body, but Sai assures him that is not the case.

Akari invites Hikaru to the Haze Middle School founding festival.

At the festival Hikaru meets Tsutsui Kimihiro, who is featuring a tsumego challenge at a small table, and Kaga Tetsuo, who disparages both go and Touya Akira and insists that shogi is the far superior game.
