Transcript

This chapter takes place in February of 2000.

Material from this chapter was adapted into the anime episode Game 25.

Notes

  • Fujiwara no Sai acknowledges his expectation that when Shindou Hikaru dies, Sai will live inside a goban (not a specific goban, just a goban in general) until he returns to the world.
  • Iijima Ryou is on a losing streak and worries about needing to continue on to university.
  • Shindou Hikaru has been losing his insei games by small margins. His record is so poor that he expects to be demoted back to rank 25 in March.
